I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to bring up the Context menu. With previous versions of FireFox. I could hold down the Control key and click a tab and that would bring up the Context menu. But with the latest versions of FireFox, that option is no longer available.

I suppose if I bought a two-button mouse, I could bring up the Context menu with the right button, but you should be able to bring up the Context menu with the trackpad that come with Apple's MacBook Pro.

So how do you bring up the Context menu on an Apple MacBook Pro?

Thank you so much.

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

In v76, I was able to stop the URL bar from enlarging by setting browser.urlbar.update1 to false in about:config. In v77, this enlarging URL bar behavior seems permanent. I find this behavior annoying and unnecessary for me. Actually, I think this is just plain dumb. The text does not enlarge, just the URL box. Is there a way that I may be able to disable this behavior, thank you.

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

I would like to have in next version of Firefox a checkbox, when I click on a text field which has saved username, then I would only see saved usernames for this current website. Now I see saved usernames for all websites.

So when I click on a checkbox, the saved usernames in blue reactangle on picture below, won't be shown. I will only see usernames "From this website".

This can be useful, when there are many saved usernames for many websites.

My Foxfire Browser's drop down menu has a mind of it's own.

I use current Foxfire Browser (77.0.1) with Windows 10 and have been trying to clear useless items from the drop down menu for months. I have tried all the standard, 'highlight and delete' options on YOUTUBE and right here.

I must be asking the wrong questions, because the answers I am finding do not clear the items from Foxfire's drop down menu. None of the prescribed techniques cleared the sites from Foxfire's drop down menu.. Hard to understand what I am missing but my browser' is clearly NOT responding the way explained in answers I have found.

Example: There is a Search with Amazon.com site listed. I have NEVER used and it will not be cleared. No Matter what. Top item on FoxFire's drop down menu.

In desperation, I just tried clearing "all browsing history" 'and the annoying drop down sites are still there. 'In fact, now there are additional annoying sites from Facebook (have not been in 10 years) and twitter (I have Never been on twiter).

What is wrong with this browser ?

Can anyone help ? Please.

I decided to use Firefox, but I noticed some things that are missing.

1) Being able to color the favorites folders (at least set white, black or gray)

2) Black or gray background when I open a favorites folder (currently it's white)

3) Layout of folders open folders of favorites that adapt to the length of the name of the favorites

4) Ability to enter a different pin or master password, in order to access the passwords on mozilla firefox (if I leave my pc on, with firefox open, another person can go to the firefox settings and see all my messages in clear password.)

5) Incorrect display of GMail e-mail (a sliding bar appears in the center)

6) Ability to choose whether to scroll or decrease the tabs.

First of all, congratulations to everyone for the work done so far on Mozilla Firefox.

Ps: if you want I can post photos for every single point mentioned above.

I need to configure a keyboard command -- or else find an Add-on -- that will "return" -- from the current tab, to the previous tab -- that was displayed in the same Firefox window.

Years ago there was an Add-on that provided this function -- but it was never updated to work on later Firefox versions... I have looked recently, and found nothing similar -- but does anyone know if there is an Add-on to provide this function, that will work on Firefox v77 ?

If not, then how can we forward the following suggestion to Mozilla?

Similar to Alt-Tab calling the Windows "switch Window" action -- Ctrl-Alt-Tab would (ideally) switch Tabs in Firefox, to display the previously displayed Tab, in the (same) top window.

Thank you,

A lot of firefox is customizable via userchrome or extensions, however one thing that does not seem to be is the default PDF.js viewer. I would like to continue using it; however, I would like to change the styling on it (specifically I want to change how page breaks are rendered, which I already have the CSS for). Extensions obviously will not work as it is an internal file, userChrome doesn't work (I tried it), and I can't seem to find where the viewer is actually located on my PC (Search Everything brings nothing relevant up for pdfjs, pdf.js, or viewer.html.) Is there any way that I can modify the inbuilt PDF viewer?


PS this is probably unimportant but I noticed that https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/web/viewer.html has slightly different CSS from the built in version .

Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

It seems that Firefox on Win10 does not present alternate stylesheets in local files.

See for example: https://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/alternatives

I have a trivial HTML file, e.g., c:\alternate_stylesheet.html, with a few of those examples of alternative stylesheets, like:

 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://www.w3.org/StyleSheets/Core/Steely" title=Steely>
 <link rel="alternate stylesheet"
       type="text/css"
       href="http://dbaron.org/style/forest" title="Forest (by David Baron)">

Viewing such a trivial HTML page in Firefox on Win10, the View > Page Style list is the default - just "No Style" and "Basic Page Style". The list does not include the head link alternate stylesheet options.

Why not?

IE has no trouble with these (menu View > Style presents them as expected), which seems to confirm that the trivial HTML code is correct.

Any advice?
