Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

Is there, perchance, a simple file edit I can do that will fix this for me?

So the problem is that Firefox doesn't play any HTML5 content. Weirdly except for Youtube. Youtube works just fine. But every other Website shows errors. Even songsterr.com. I'm using latest Firefox 76.0.1 on a recent Ubuntu 20. 04 LTS installation. Usual troubleshooting like updates doesnt work because "sudo apt-get upgrade" doesn't find any updates. I tried the same websites in the latest version of Chromium and they work perfectly fine. I couldn't find a mistake in the firefox settings or something so I'm confused. Disabling Plugins didn't change anything and turning of tracking protection didn't either. What is the Problem here and how can I solve it?

Hello,

Sometimes Firefox is having a wrong IPv6 in cache. Using the extension SixOrNot, I can see for rss.forumanalogue.fr the following IPv6 2001:41d0:fecf:8900:216:3eff:fe65:97bc, with the note "Cache". However, this IP corresponds to toot.forumanalogue.fr and the actual IPv6 for rss.forumanalogue.fr is 2001:41d0:fecf:8900:216:3eff:fef1:20a2. In order to temporary fix the issue, I perform a dig and it solves the issue for a while.

It is a rather new issue (few weeks).

What is going on?

I had set the about:config settings after 75 came out to fix the address bar. Today I got 77.0.1 and now the address bar seems broken again. When I mouse over it, there is no longer a down arrow to click and show my common sites. If I click in the bar and then delete everything, the list of common sites appears. If I click away and click back into the blank address bar, now I have to hit the down arrow to get the list to appear. I need a way to get the down arrow back so the address bar works as expected.

These config options are all set to false:

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble getting my custom new tab page to be focused when opened (instead of the address bar).

I am currently using the `autoconfig.js` + `mozilla.cfg` approach to overriding the `AboutNewTab.jsm` service with a custom local file. This is working great with the two files containing this code:

autoconfig.js: ``` pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); ```

mozilla.cfg: ``` // Custom firefox config

let { classes:Cc, interfaces:Ci, utils:Cu } = Components;

try {

 Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm");
 let newTabURL = "file:///home/vallode/Documents/test/index.html";
 AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e) { Cu.reportError(e); } ```

I have been attempting to use the `gBrowser` global to add an event listener to the new tab opening, but with no success. Could anyone point me in the right direction for something like this?

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Hello all,

I have a very strange problem and I need help like anything.

My system is Mint 19.2 based on Ubuntu 18.04. I was using a Ricoh Printer model SP 111. I was able to print from this printer using any app like LibreOffice or Adobe Reader. But intermittently a problem occur. Whenever I send a print from any app to this printer this only pass a single blank page. The strange thing is that during the problem too I am able to print any document from firefox. Though i am able to print only 2-3 pages correctly from firefox. If i give more than 4-5 pages it may be passing only second page to printer.

Can anyone please help me short out this problem so that I be able to print from other applications too.

One thing may help me if I know how firefox send prints to this printer and what method firefox use to send print to this printer.

I am using https://github.com/madlynx/ricoh-sp100 community driver for this printer Ricoh SP 111.
