I have this one page which has "meta refresh" set to 2 minutes, and the page displays my own data from some sensors so it has to be that way.

Anyway, the tab is making the clicking sound whenever it reloads the page. Muting the tab doesn't help.

Is there a way to disable the "click" when the tab reloads in the background?

Coming over from Chrome (I know, I know) and so far the only customization option I'm missing is:

I'd like to be able to see the page number in the sidebar on the left (ideally next to/under each page) when printing a PDF. I work with a lot of downloaded PDFs and I frequently need to break those down into separate documents, which I do by printing to PDF in-browser using custom page ranges. For example, I'll print pages 1-2 to Document1, pages 3-6 to Document 2, and pages 8-10 to Document 3.

Having the current page number at the top of the sidebar isn't very helpful, I want to be able to see the page number for each individual page all the time so I can tell at a glance, for example, that page 7 is blank and can be skipped, or page 6 ends a report so I know which pages get printed together.

Is there a way to set this up?

Hi. Is there a way to customize the order of Firefox headers and footers on printed pages (including print-to-pdf)?

I prefer the header to be url only, in the center. While the footer has page on left; title in the center, and date on the right.

This used to be easy to accomplish with print options in older versions, then -- as the print dialog changed (and actually improved a lot in most *other* ways) I had to turn to about:config modifications like those described in the 1/27/21 reply here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323433. But now I can't seem to find any way to have any control over print headers besides "on" and "off."

One problem I find with having both page title and url on top is that these can be long, causing one or both to be truncated.

I'm using Firefox 115.3esr.

In HTML, in the head element, it is possible to specify links to external resources that are relevant to the current page. For example:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/pdf" href="mypage.pdf" title="My Page in PDF Format"> <link rel="license" href="copyright.html" title="Website License Information"> <link rel="next" href="page2.html">

Many years ago, I found an obscure setting that enabled a toolbar that would display all those document links directly in the browser. That was several computers ago, so I cannot look up the about:config setting that enabled the functionality, and my online searches have found nothing even remotely related to the subject.

What happened to that functionality? How can I turn it back on inside the latest version of Firefox?

Addendum: This functionality was not provided by any extension, add-on, or mod. It was implemented directly in the browser itself, downloaded vanilla and clean installed. It was enabled by directly editing the "about:config" page.

As for whether the cited links are intended for automated tools or not, here is the HTML standard itself:

Interactive user agents may provide users with a means to follow the hyperlinks created using the link element, somewhere within their user interface.

And just in case somebody suggests this is somehow new or novel functionality, here it is described in the HTML standard published in 1997:

Although LINK has no content, it conveys relationship information that may be rendered by user agents in a variety of ways (e.g., a tool-bar with a drop-down menu of links).

That "tool-bar with a drop-down menu of links" is almost exactly what Mozilla used to provide. I just want to know what happened to it.

The Certificate Manager dialog (Settings -> Privacy & Security -> View Certificates...) has gotten to the point where it is extremely wide (greater than one screen width! Luckily I have 2 monitors so I can expand the FF window wide enough to get to the grab handle in the lower-right corner of the dialog). If I grab that resize handle in the lower-right corner of the dialog and attempt to shrink it, it will not get any smaller - I can only make it bigger. (What has caused this problem is I have attempted to reduce column sizes in the dialog, but the columns have only gotten wider!) I see no controls to be able to reduce the dialog size to a reasonable width. Am I stuck with this forever now?

Hi, I got a new laptop recently and ever since then I've been experiencing this problem. Websites like https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com or https://ukutabs.com offer the option to autoscroll, so that you can play your instrument without having to pause your playing and scroll further yourself. This feature hasn't been working for me ever since I got my new device and since it's various sites, I suppose the problem must be in the browser itself, I just can't figure it out. In the case of Ultimate Guitar, when I click autoscroll, it does move slightly, once, but then stops again, and you'd miss the movement if you're not paying close attention. I can switch between various speeds on this site as well, but it doesn't do anything. In case of Ukutabs, there's not even any kind of response from the site when I click the option. I tried turning on and off Firefox settings concerning autoscrolling and smooth scrolling, but nothing solved my problem.

Thank you for your time and energy, everyone!

I have an issue with the address bar in private windows. Normally when you click on the search bar in the new tab page, it will redirect the cursor to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar.

I found the following solution on the forum here that works for normal windows: go to the about:config page and set browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false.

For private windows, this fix does not work. It will still go to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar. Is there another way for me to fix this so that it will also work in private windows?

I've set custom fonts through Settings > Fonts > Advanced, but the fonts I have specified are not being used on any websites even if I uncheck the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above". For example, I've set the default sans serif to Source Sans 3, but websites use Arial regardless of the settings. The only custom font I've gotten to work is Segoe UI (the UI font on Windows); all other just fall back to Arial. The problem persists even if I disable all extensions/add-ons. I'm also experiencing the problem for non-Latin scripts; I've tried to set the default Bengali font to Noto Sans Bengali, but websites are using Vrinda instead.

I'm running Firefox version 120.0 on Windows 11, any help is greatly appreciated!

There are many cathegories to filter addons at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/ sadly none to sort by popularity. A popularity filter to list firefox addons would be a great feature.

Speaking of great features, addons.mozilla.org should not use google-analytics.com Mozilla on the one hand promotes privacy or atleast makes the impression of doing so, but on the other hand tracks their users by default and uses google analytics on their extensions website. There are privacy friendly alternatives to google analytics, why did Mozilla decide to use an invasive bigtech option? It is very unlikely for mozilla to quit using google analytics just because of this thread, and even if i asked on the apropriate forum or email chances are nothing will change. It's just sad mozilla uses google analytics, there's nothing else to say.


Another question, Mozilla in this article https://addons.mozilla.org/blog/firefoxs-most-popular-innovative-browser-extensions-of-2021/ claims that there have been a total of 133 million visits to addons.mozilla.org However this site https://www.similarweb.com/website/addons.mozilla.org/#overview claims that addons.mozilla.org had a total of 10.9 million visits over time, which seems incorrect since ublockorigin alone already has 7 million+ users. I've always thought that similarweb is a reputable source, or maybe not?

Hello there,

I've been having problems with using Firefox for a while. For context, I'm using a computer given to me by my college because my personal laptop gave up the ghost a while ago. It has a lot of security programs installed on it and I am obviously not allowed to mess with those at all, as my account doesn't have the permissions. Here are some of the problems I've been having:

  • always signed out of my firefox account on relaunch (no options enabled that would cause this)
  • always logged out of specific websites on relaunch (primarily noticed with discord)
  • addon windows never load
  • addons don't work, even when enabled, and after uninstall and reinstalling

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox also, but nothing seemed to fix these problems. The only thing that stopped happening was being signed out of my Firefox account on relaunch but I have no idea what was causing it or what stopped it.

Now, in an attempt to fix the problems I was having with addons, I refreshed my Firefox. So far I haven't done anything to it other than sign into my Firefox account. Upon trying to reinstall my addons, I got errors like this: "An unexpected error occurred during installation." and "UBlock Origin could not be installed because Firefox cannot modify the needed file." For reference, here's all the addons I had installed before I refreshed: Tranquility Reader, HTTPS Everywhere, Better TTV, Shinigami Eyes, UBlock Origin, Windscribe, Enhancer for Youtube, Dark Reader, and Bitwarden. I tried installing UBlock Origin, Enhancer for Youtube, and Bitwarden, and got the exact same errors every time. I'm really lost on what to do.
