I disable my option "Restore previous session" and it works fine if i close my firefox.

But if i do not close my firefox and reboot my computer directive, the session will restore at next startup.

Obviously when i reboot my computer, I don't want to see my tabs anymore, but I failed to find any setting to do so. I also find someone say to set `browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash` in `about:config`, but it doesn't work, and I don't think it is the proper way to solve this problem because reboot is not crash.

When installing Firefox, there is an option to import data from another browser. That feature is also available in the "Library -> Import and Backup -> Import data from Another Browser", and it imports things like Bookmarks and History from another browsers.

As the functionality already exists, is it possible to use that functionality in any way to import Bookmarks and History from a different profile in the same Firefox installation? I want to merge 2 different browsing history (like the old question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/928204), and looks like using the "Import data from Another Browser" could help if it's possible to use it with another Firefox profile/directory.

When navigating in some pages, specially in google docs, the browser's URI fragment (the part after the #) changes frequently for each page/header/slide, and all of them are stored in the history.

That behavior adds lots of entries in the history and also hinders the usage of the search functionality of the address bar (as all the duplicates are shown instead of shown only one and other pages). I want to keep one entry per document, at least in specific pages like gdocs where the "fragment" doesn't add any useful information and each document can have lots of them.

Is there any way to configure that behavior, to not save every fragment in the history?


To reproduce the above behavior (the same behavior happens in other pages, not only gdocs):

- Open any gdocs document with several headers, or a gdocs presentation with several pages. - Navigate all the document/presentation, and check the history. - Close the document/presentation tab/window. - In a new window/tab, use the address bar to search the document/presentation by the document name: several entries for the same document/presentation are shown (and if they are lots of them, no other different entries with same words are shown in the address bar). - Check also the history: several entries of the same document/presentation are shown (it could be hundreds for long documents, and thousands after seen few documents).

Curl gives us access to the --resolv feature. Its super handy for making quick name resolution changes for single requests without modifying a hosts file. It is particularly handy when troubleshooting proxy's and load balancers.

Example curl request curl https://www.mywebsite.com --resolv "www.mywebsite.com:443:192.168.255.100"

Is there an equivalent method in firefox to do the same thing?

To be extra clear I do not want to modify the host header. That doesn't help for TLS destinations with certs and subject names etc.

A feature for editing PDF files has recently been added to the released code. I cannot find comprehensive documentation for it. If such exists, a pointer would be appreciated.

Here is the specific problem with which I am struggling. I am marking up a converted web page (Waze) with the tool with the pencil icon. That starts out OK. However, after a while, it gets into a mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my previous markings. Once a box has been selected all I can do is move the content or delete it. I do not want to do that. I want to make new marks nearby. It seems to be impossible. The only way I have managed to get around the problem is to save the PDF to a file and then reload it. But that only lasts for a while until it gets back into the mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my new marks.

I don't know what is getting it into the selection mode or how to get out once there. There are no clues in the menu. I could use the mode at times for removing marks, so I do also want to know how to get into it.

Help would be much appreciated.

When I reply to emails, either reply, or reply all, I prefer to see all the email addresses from the email header that the original email was sent to. This is the default on most email systems I've used. I think it was the default on Firefox until recently.

Now, when I do a reply, or reply all, the message now starts with the original email, without the email headers. I understand some people may prefer that, but I definitely don't like it. It can be useful to see who the original email had been sent to, especially if there are errors in that list of people, or the people included are fewer or more than the previous email.

Note, if I forward the email, the email does contain the email addresses from the original email header.

This behaviour caused me some real grief when I realised some people had made a mistake when sending me an email recently.

Is there a setting to adjust this?

Regards

I have an application that displays a pop up in another window. Downloads can be performed, however when I download a file (.doc, .xls, etc) The download icon and menu are hidden and it's not visible. The file downloads but there's no notification.

This doesn't happen if the downloads is called in the main window (without open a pop window). Instead the file is shown on the corner and the downloads menu is visible . Is there any way to handle both scenarios?

Capturing Firefox with OBS - Tab freeze when on other virtual desk, a way to prevent this?

Hello,

For teaching purpose, I need to do interactive presentations with both a regular slide presentation (using pympress), interactive activities through either Miro or Mentimeter both being in Firefox and a few other things (depending on what I teach at the time).

In order to mix those windows on the screen (and also because sometimes those are streamed), I capture all of them in OBS and have a bunch of scenes which organize and size everything depending on what I currently focusing on.

Each of those windows are on a different virtual desk to make it manageable, and thus I am not always on the virtual desk where Firefox is, for example when I am explaining something with slides, I am on the virtual desk with the presenter console. However I often still need to have the content of Miro/Mentimeter on the screen so that I can link my explanation with what students do.

Now the problem I have is that it seems the rendering of the pages in Firefox freeze when I change of virtual desk, and thus students might add things on Miro/Mentimeter and I do not see it because the page is frozen. When I get back to the virtual desk, suddenly all the changes students made pop-up. It's extremely frustrating, both for me and students, as sometimes they asked questions related to what I was explaining before and then I have to go backwards.

Is there any way to make Firefox keep rendering pages when they are not on the screen? Any option? I have tried searching about:config with rendering / refresh, but came up with nothing. When looking that issue online, I found the "Always active Window (Always Visible)" extension which supposedly prevent the hidden property of pages to go to true, but that has not solved the problem.

Any help or tips on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely, Sleris

You can use the mouse to highlight text and use the scroll wheel (up/down) to go through the page. This will not deselect the text/remove the highlight.

But if you middle click to scroll (to get smooth scrolling) the text is deselected.

I don't see why this is necessary, the highlight should be maintained. Of course, middle click should still open clicked links in a background tabs.
