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.

The Firefox icon on my taskbar has a great big green number 1 plonked on it. It doesn't seem to relate to the number of windows I have open or the processes running. It's there even when Firefox is closed. I thought it might be messages but I can't find those either. Its driving me nuts can you please tell me how to get rid of it? I'm running it in Ubuntu on a laptop.

Hi

I'm tired off spell check constantly saying I'm misspelling words because I'm writing in Danish, so I decided to download the danish dictionary for it, but it isn't working. When I right click on a "misspelled" word, it will only let me choose the default English (United States).

I have triple checked that I actually do have the danish dictionary downloaded an enabled.

System Info: 1. Windows 10 Home 22H2 (as of writing) 2. Firefox 118.0.2 (as of writing)

I'm trying to make the simple change of moving the location of the 'find in page' bar from the bottom to the top and I recently discovered that using userChrome.css was the way to do it. I followed this tutorial in the following link, https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html, making sure to put the "chrome" folder in the right location C:\Users\myName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\sfytm5xk.default-release, switching the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true, entering the code snippet into the userChrome.css using VSCode, and restarting the browser for the changes to take effect.

After the first restart, I found that the 'find in page' bar was still at the bottom and nothing had changed. I restarted the browser about 10 more times and nothing changed still. I looked through the Mozilla Support forums, r/FirefoxCSS and r/Firefox subreddits for an answer and came across a few posts with similar problems, tried their recommended solutions such as downloading the userChrome.css file from the website tutorial, double-checking that File Explorer would show file extensions when creating or renaming files, or even restarting my computer and yet none have worked.

I have no idea what's wrong so feel free to share what you think the problem might be and possible solutions in the replies.

Hi,

Just installed Firefox (again) as I want to move away from Chrome/Edge. Overall I like it but having the following problems...

The 'Home' key on the top of my Thinkpad no longer functions. When using Chrome or Edge, clicking on 'Home' brings me to the top of the web page I'm looking at. Very handy.

For scrolling long pages, 'PgUp' and 'PgDn' are useful for scrolling sections at time.

But in Firefox, none of these are working properly. the 'Home button does nothing at all. I have used 'Fn+Left' and this works sometimes, other times it does nothing.

The Page Up and Down keys are hit and miss. Sometimes the Page Down button will take me to the bottom of the page, while the 'PageUp' will take me up for a section or two and then stop working.

I'd really like to stick to Firefox but this functionality is important for me and it's very annoying not having it working properly.

Any tips or help will be appreciated.

Thanks, B

Where else can underline links be disabled?

I have Firefox 119.0 on Windows 10, and am confused about all these bars.

Here is what I see at the top of the screen: (will have to use words for some icons)

Line 1: File/ Edit/ View/ History/ Bookmarks/ Tools/ Help, then on the right, minimize/ restore/ end.

Line 2: Firefox icon/ search bar showing my home page “Google”/ Open new tab/ List all tabs.

Menu bar is checked, so is that the Menu bar?

Line 3: Back arrow/ Forward arrow/ Shield/ Lock/ https://www.google.com/ Save to pocket/ Firefox account/ Extensions/ Application menu.

Line 4: Google screen

I asked about Download on a previous question and got a reply from cor-el (Nov 6, 2023, 4:09:55 AM) which said if I went to Menu/ More tools/ Customize toolbar, I should see a Download icon, and if not, to Reset Defaults. Did not see one before or after the reset.

Think I read somewhere that there is a way to see my previous posts, but can’t remember.

So I guess this is three questions: 1. Is that the menu bar and is that what it’s supposed to look like? Think it used to be different. 2. Where is the Download icon? 3. How can I see my previous posts?

Thanks for help with any of these.
