Alternatives for Buggy "Take a Screenshot" Menu in Firefox 88

I understand that there's this help page, but a lot of times site developers right click and hotkeys disabled for security reasons and this renders me unable to take a screenshot of a website.

I've also tried to add "Take a Screenshot" button from "Customize Toolbar" option to my toolbar, but most of the time it is disabled, even on support.mozilla.org page. To enable it, I need to remove it and re-adding it again with "Customize Toolbar" option.

Is there any way to re-enable "Take a Screenshot" option in 3-Dot menu? If not, is there any sane way to keep "Take a Screenshot" enabled for the rest of my Firefox session without me needing to remove and re-add it again everytime I need to take a screenshot?

I detected recently a change in behaviour that is annoying me quite a bit. I do not know where to change such behaviour. It concerns examples such as :

A link like "file://path_to_some_folder" used to open Windows Explorer and now opens a new tab.

A link like "thunderlink://blahblah" used to open the associated application just like that. Now it first opens a new tab before doing so. Leaves me with lots of unnecessary tabs (only having "thunderlink://..." in their titlebar).

I assume it is the one or the other default setting that changed, but I cannot figure out how to restore the original behaviour.

Pasting an IP into the address bar (from Excel) and pressing ENTER/Return from either the keypad or (sometimes) keys area changes the address bar to [Google search] (empty) - my IP that I've pasted is gone and the website from the IP is not open.

This is happening since the last update. I have not 88.0 version.

I don't have google as search engine! I have Foxy Gestures and uBlock Origin add-ons.

Hi, I am a bit of a panaroid person, so regarding to the permission: "access my data for all websites", does that means an add-on can make input in the background by itself?

I know my description is a bit confusing, so what I am thinking about is: whether an add-on is able to control my account on a website, changing the settings, password, and etc?

The add-on I am considering to use is uBlock Origin, I trust the developer and Firefox Recommendation, I am just worry that one day if the developer's account is hijacked, at least I can make sure it doesn't have the ability to hijack my accounts.

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?

I reinstalled Win10, clean install. Reinstalled Firefox, v88 and imported my bookmarks (.json). Took a while (36.4Mo) but they got imported and I got to sort the latest bookmarks them into folders and tags while I transferred files from a hard drive. Trimmed them to 31 Mo and saved a backup. Exited firefox. Later I launch firefox to install addons and notice all my latest bookmarks have vanished. All my tags are gone too.

When I check to restore my backup, I have the choice between - today's automated backup (11 Mo; 110.000 items) 100.000 items, that is, half of my bookmarks. - ... or my manual save I did. Restoring my manual save returns the bookmarks and tags. But they disappear when I exit firefox. Sitting for half a hour for my bookmarks to load each time I launch firefox is not a solution. I estimate there's 70k to 100k links and 1k tags missing.

I have one only profile. Fresh, latest FF, no addons. No clue too.

Hi,

This is a specific problem whose solution I was unable to find, which is why I am posting here. For quite a long time (I'm not sure when since it has been long enough that I have more or less accepted it at this point), I am having an issue with page loading while I have an Ad Blocker installed. It doesn't matter which one it is, as long as I have one installed and enabled, it takes around 3-5 minutes for any page to load when I first start Firefox. This is especially prevalent when I have just started up my computer, compared to if I had used Firefox just a while ago and am opening it again, in which case the duration is shorter, but still around 2-3 minutes.

I have tried multiple ad blockers, such as uBlock Origin, AdBlock, AdBlock Plus and AdNauseam, but I'm facing this issue with all of them. I know it's the ad blocker because whenever I disable it, the pages which were otherwise not loading, load immediately, but with ads. If I enable the ad blocker again, I still have to wait the duration I would otherwise have to, for the page to continue loading or website to continue working.

I would like to know some way around this issue aside from disabling the ad blocker altogether, or a suggestion for a different ad blocker would also be welcome, as long as I can get rid of this issue.

Current Firefox version: 86.0.1 (64-bit)

I've had this issue persistently over several versions over the last couple of years.

I have recently had a pop up open whenever I open a news page from the site MSN. It says You have chosen to open impression. Which is application/octet-stream from : https://impression.link. Then it asks what firefox should do with this file? Two options: Open with & then a browse dropdown. Or save file. I'm already looking at the news item in the browser, so I don't need an option to open the item. And I don't want to save it. Just read it. I don't knbow why this pop up suddenly appeared but it is very annoying. My searches have found the pop up is not necessariuly dangerous, but there is no information provided on how to get rid of it. Anyone else experienced this issue? And is someone able to tell me how to get rid oif it? Thx. (Pop up image attached).

I have a rather weird problem with firefox. I need to open websites twice to get them to work. To try and explain what I mean here is a how i currently need to use the browser

Open tab,

type in web address/search,
hit enter

tab is stuck infinitely loading ( i cant refresh, I cant type a different adress, that tab is just stuck loading) open a second tab

type in the exact same address/search
hit enter and for some reason it now loads instantly

And it isnt just new tabs its the same story to load any and all webpages say I am on a page of google search results click a link stuck infinitely loading open new tab repeat the same search click the same link, for some reason now loads instantly

Also websites that require the dumbest thing in history, captchas, they are simply unusable, doesnt matter if I use the pictures or the audio, even when I get it right it just reloads the pointless captcha box. Why a captcha is necessary sometimes just to load google.com makes less than zero sense, even if I was a bot what possible harm could I do by loading a search bar? but I digress

I am on the latest version and I do have some addons installed:

privacy badger, dark reader, ublock origin, tree style tabs, privacy settings, ghostery,dontaccept webp


but even starting firefox with add ons disabled the problem is still there.


Anyone got any ideas for this? thanks

I have firefox developer edition 88.0b9, I have disabled updates using policies.json(DisableAppUpdate: true), so the infamous "update to the latest version" popup with the green icon went away. But now it seems there's another form of those popups that firefox employs. And in the search bar this time. Why aren't they disabled by DisableAppUpdate? How can I disable them using about:config or something of the sort? Pretty sure I've got no malware or anything, always been careful about that kind of thing. Don't have many programs installed. Don't have any addons except an adblocker. All the buttons on that annoying popup lead to official mozilla resources: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ So what do I do with those popups? I have no intention of updating(I don't want any redesigns, any new functionaly, any other things that would disrupt me and change the stuff I'm used to). Only want to disable those popups. That's the entire reason I used policies.json - to disable those annoying popups. But now another form of them appears.

How do I remove the mixed content protection permanently and will it remove the banner that appears? I am sick of the banner that pops up at times that affects the browsing ability which is entirely annoying and how do I remove the shield and padlock from my fire fox entirely. I hate having to disable those as they interfere with the operation of my firefox and website that I have because not all the content on my website fails to load if the mixed content is disabiled. I'm tired of having this on my browser. I have to enable all my site features everytime I reload my browser. This is totally in the way.
