There is no option to add new tab(s) between a specific location. From specific location, I intended to add a new tab between two tabs, not at the end of all the tabs. To make it more understandable, here is a scenario:

For example, on my Firefox browser, following tabs are opened in the order as follows: Tab1, Tab2, Tab3, Tab4, Tab5, Tab6.

Now, I wanted to add a Tab7, but not at the end, as it happens usually. I want to add it between Tab2 and Tab3 directly without manually dragging it in between and hence I want to get the following order:

Tab1, Tab2, Tab7, Tab3, Tab4, Tab5 and Tab6.

Unlike other browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Chromium, I feel this is a subtle feature which is missing in Firefox. In those browsers, you can just directly right-click on the opened tab and click "New Tab", which adds a new tab in between the opened tab and the adjacent one.

I really wish this feature is provided as soon as possible on Firefox too.

Thank You. Regards, VIVEK.

Hi,

Talking briefly about the size of games nowadays and SSD, i checked some stuff and saw Firefox writing 4.5 Mo/s (= MB/s). I wanted to see what that was, and saw it's mainly firefox cache. From there i searched and found a few sites suggesting and showing the settings to change to switch from disk cache to RAM cache. I did so since i've enough free RAM from a little while now. Changed settings (in about:config):

  • browser.cache.disk.enable from true to false
  • browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl from true to false

browser.cache.memory.enable was already on true and browser.cache.memory.capacity on -1 (not sure it's the best setting, only displaying 32768 KiB in about:cache... Any insight appreciated).

The concern: Cf. title, about:cache is still displaying the cache is also on disk, while i don't see writings being done related to the cache on the SSD. Is it just a display error in this configuration, or is there something else? If it's an error, i guess i should report it if it's not already done on the appropriate platform after.

Also, i hope the 4.5 Mo/s was just a peak, because if it's constantly like that if you've Twitch opened for instance, that's a major issue. On a SSD like the Samsung 850 EVO 250GB with its small TBW of 75, that's slightly less than 193 full days.

I have been requested to uninstall Adobe Flash player. I am still using Flash Player for some web sites and am ask to activate before video will work. At the end of the year I am told that Flash Player will no longer work. I asked one of the sites what I should do and they recommended using Chrome and html5 to watch video. I have also checked several sites to see what can be done with Firefox to continue watching video without changing browsers. I wish Firefox would put out a step by step process to fix this problem and allow me to use html5 in a Firefox browser. I am reluctant to uninstall Flash Player until I understand how to make html5 or whatever is required to continue to watch live stream and youtube. It looks like I have until January before Flash Player is inoperative. BTW, I have Firefox version 82, running Win10 with Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. Jay

So my pc restarted overnight due to automatic windows updates, and it appears that from that point at midnight, to 10am PST, most of my firefox addons have stopped working/functioning all together.

Currently running the following: Alternate player for Twitch.tv BetterTTV Dark Reader Duckduckgo Privacy essentials facebook container privacy badger Reddit Enhancement Suite Ublock origin.

I've tried disabling all extensions and running them one at a time, with very little luck. None of them seem to function any more and clicking icons for the addons seems to just 'hang' on a loading page of sorts (See photo). Ublock options pictured in the second photo just hang on that setting page.

Thanks for any help

I have every single autofill option disabled, but it keeps creating and showing autofill dialogues under text entry fields.

Other articles say to disable history. Do I actually have to turn off Firefox remembering my history to get those stupid autofill boxes to stop showing up? It's useful to go back and reopen a page you closed. Plus everyone with history disabled looks like a porn addict.

Any help would be useful. Cheers!

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Searching everywhere and cannot find a solution. Perhaps there is none. Followed suggestions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297345 in an attempt to increase width of scroll bar but see that just reproduces the default setting.

So the question stands: how to increase width of scroll bar?

The scroll bar is super thin.

Any suggestions for Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS Firefox 82.0 (64-bit)
