I had to Restart/Refresh Firefox because I lost my dropdown menus and then the Google Search bar in the right-hand corner disappeared. Somehow I got it to reappear but it's too small. I followed steps in several different posts and can't get Google Search Bar to widen. 1. I placed the mouse pointer between the search bar and the address bar and nothing happened. 2. The following didn't work for me because I can't find the “Use Small Icons” box: "Click the “View” tab on the program menu and choose “Toolbars.” Select “Customize” from the fly-out menu and a “Customize” toolbar screen loads. Deselect the “Use Small Icons” box and click “Done” to enlarge the icons on the Firefox toolbar." I attached a screenshot of what FF Browser looks like.

Hi , I often download photos from Firefox by topic to make videos. Is there any software or application on Firefox that can help me pre-name the image ?

For example: I'm looking for pictures of Trees and Sea

when I click to save image as for Sea images, it often gives random names and I end up having to rename the images to Sea-0001, Sea-0002

if a photo named Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Therefore, my usual way is to write Sea- and copy the text

and when I save a photo when click to save image as, I will change the name in Hud , I paste it and it becomes

Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

and in my work file I'll sort the photos by name

So , is there any application on Firefox that allows me to preset the word Sea- ? That means every time I click save image as, the system will automatically name it Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Thank you

We see that Firefox often takes the fallback Proxy. The connection via the Fallback proxy is much slower than the connection via the original proxy. 


My Questions: How does Firefox recognize which Proxy is now active? Is there away to debug the Proxy Selection? Can I give a priority to a Proxy?

I use multi-account containers extensively. Unfortunately, my laptop recently broke so I had to pull out my desktop which was in storage. I hadn't used my desktop in a few years, so I had to update Firefox to make it work.

Then I discovered that the multi-account container feature no longer works. It says it isn't supported in this latest version.

Is there any good way to fix this?

The multi-account container feature was what finally let me switch to the safety and privacy of Firefox. Prior to that, I used Chrome, but the multi-account containers were even better since I didn't have to tie a different account to each container.

It looks like I could roll Firefox back to an earlier version, but that would require creating an entirely new firefox account. It took me a substantial amount of time to get this one set up the way I like. I understand that you all want to protect my data, but frankly I feel like I've been put between a rock and a hard place.

Thank you for any help you are able to provide.

How can I restore a previous theme? I had a "colorfore" theme that Mozilla offered a few years ago set up in Firefox. It was perfect! I could see everything clearly with my aging eyesight.Then one of my synced computers needed a new Linux OS installation so I signed out of sync on that machine. Installed the new OS. When I started Firefox the first time I signed into sync. I got my history, bookmarks and bookmark bar, but no custom colors. Now my computer at work has its colors reset to the out of box colors too. I have lost the colorfore colors I have been using for several years now. How can I get the colorfore colors back? Thank you for your attention in this matter. I love Firefox, use it exclusively and contribute to Mozilla. Gregg Scholfield

Hello there!

I have been trying to edit an existing browser extension (for the sole reason of adding new features to it for myself), and I've been trying to add it to my Firefox browser. However, upon trying to install it to the browser, it throws an error saying: "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". I've been trying to read more into this issue all across the internet, but none of the recommendations seem to be working.

I tested my extension locally and with using the about:debugging temporary add-on method, and everything seemed fine.

I tried to re-configurate the 'xpinstall.signatures.required' variable by setting it to false (even thought this method is considered unsafe in most cases), and the issue still occurs

I also tried adding a new gecko ID to it as stated in this article, but to no avail: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/browser_specific_settings

And last, but certainly not least, I tried compressing the extension with web-ext aswell.

My question is - is there a way to add this extension permanently to my browser without submitting it to Mozilla? I did not create this extension, I only added custom integrations to it for myself.

And more importantly - is there a way to add it to the basic Firefox browser, which is not Firefox developer of Firefox nightly? Or maybe create a desktop shortcut that will always start the browser in debug mode, always containing the extension as "temporary"?

I can see that many posts and questions have already been posted regarding this "custom add-on" topic, but my situation is a bit different since my goal is to only use this add-on by myself (and I'm also revisiting this topic since none of the previous suggestions worked in my case)

Any comments, helps, or even links would be greatly appreciated! Have a great day!

I have Netflix, Youtube, etc. all open in other tabs with button available and working, but lately I am unable to use it specifically on the Disney+ website. It was working fine about a month ago, but haven't used it in a while (or noticed when the icon disappeared exactly). I included some images showing what I mean.

Is this something you can direct me to where I can solve this? Thanks

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

How can I completely remove the tab bar and regain 3/4 of an inch of screen space. It would be nice if Mozilla would just have a on/off button for it. I've tried creating a folder called Chrome within my Firefox Profile folder. I then created a text file within that folder and named it userChrome.css. I put this string in the text file #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } This did not work, does anyone know the best method for getting rid of the annoying tab bar?

I need to disable this horrible translator that is now showing up on top of every page I visit, It keeps showing up even after choosing a translation or disabling translations for that language. That is probably a bug, but I don't want to wait for a fix, I need to be able to see the pages I visit completely, this thing prevents me from clicking buttons and and is really anoying.

This is the built-in translation feature since I do not use any translation plugins, and started showing up after an upgrade.

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?
