on some websites it says -1 tells Firefox to automatically determine the size of the cache based on your physical disk and setting it to 0 would effectively disable any disk cache entrys.

so are this informations true and if not, how do i still let firefox automatically determine the size of the cache based on my physical disk?

Firefox can take screenshots of pages or screenshots of custom areas of pages.

According to the documentation, when we download the image, the filename should follow the pattern: Screen Shot yyy-mm-dd at hh.mm.ss.png. If I use the :screenshot at the console, the pattern works as documented.

But Firefox is using a different pattern when I choose Take Screenshot from the context menu. The pattern includes the page's title. Example: Screenshot 2024-04-14 at 18-35-16 General ‹ Settings ‹ Geomaster Lda — WordPress.png.

Since the page title can have non common filename characters, I have problems with such filenames. My uploads to MediaWiki fails with such filenames. I know I can report or improve MediaWiki, but my question here is quite simple.

Can I change the Firefox's default pattern for Take Screenshot's downloads?

Moderators, I am copy and pasting the below warning I have seen on similar posts at the top of the post.

--- WARNING: This script is not provided by Mozilla and is not officially supported Creating a userChrome.css file and other ways of customizing Firefox that are not exposed in the interface are there for developers, not end-users. If it were intended for end-users, you would see a menu option or checkbox; you wouldn't have to hack a text file in a hidden location.

What this means is that even though the functionality you want is no longer supported, a third-party has found a way to do it using the CSS file. If it breaks in new versions, you will need to contact the person who provided the script.

[Warning was not added by moderator, but by me to save someone time.] ---

With that out of the way, here's the issue I have, how I've solved it temporarily for the community.

When I load YouTube videos, I am given a statuspanel message with the URL of the video playing. It's not momentary or temporary, it stays there, the entire time. Why anyone thought this was a good idea, I'm not sure.

My question is simple, is there an alternative solution - to remove this statuspanel message permentantly - to what I'm sharing here, without using the userChrome.css file?

If so, please provide the solution so it can be tested and upvoted by the community, thank you in advance if that is you.

If there is not, then this post also serves as solution as well as a request to Modzila, that being.

Modzilla. Please make a solution that doesn't need custom .css scripts.

I am posting this as I needed multiple posts to achieve a solution so am hoping this serves as that for someone (including myself) until Firefox resolves this issue themselves, another way.

Solution: Windows 7/8/10/11 as of Firefox version 120.0

1. Go to about:config, click Accept the Risk and Continue 2. Type "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets", toggle this to true 3. Close all instances of Firefox 4. Open Explorer, navigate to %appdata% then navigate down to \Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and select your profile folder. If you only have 1 it may be obvious, if not for me it's the only "~.default-release" folder, where ~ is a random set or letters and numbers. If you're unsure, pick the first folder named like this, then repeat the next steps for all profile folders, or use trial and error if you prefer until you achieve the desired result. 5. Make a new folder "chrome" in that folder. 6. In this folder make a new .css file, right click make a new .txt file rename the file and extension "userChrome.css". 6. Open the blank .css file with a text editor and paste this line without quotes "#statuspanel {display:none!important;}" and save. 7. Attempt to load videos or pages where messages usually appear in the bottom left and observe the results

There are various other posts both here and other places that I have combined to write this solution, none of the others worked on their own, for me, which is why I write this and to refresh the request to the Modzilla Firefox team, to please, share or make a solution so we don't have to do this, as you'll otherwise need to continue supporting this legacy feature in future versions of Firefox.

Note: This will likely remove all statuspanel messages on other pages too, I have read other statuspanel commands online so if you want to be particular about muting some and not others, you may need to modify the file further.

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.

How to block the full screen function permanently at the same time that all menus are hidden, invisible, when you press the full screen button so that the video one gives a larger image without giving full screen. I have previously found a firefox program that could do that, but unfortunately I got it deleted.

Want to use the solution on a Win 10 PC, desktop PC and a screen of 1.5 m, i.e. 2 screens in one.

While hovering over a Youtube video it shows the full video title as "hover text" if the tab is focused. However, if something else, even another Firefox window is focused hovering no longer shows anything. Is there some kind of setting to change that? I figured it could be browser and Youtube specific because Chrome shows it on Youtube even when not focused, but neither browser shows it on Google search for example, but I'm not sure.

Hi, I'm looking for some creative solutions to be able to search for Bookmark Folders imported from other browsers. I have over thirteen thousand bookmarks and I have used some extensions to delete the duplicates. However, that has left many empty folders and worse where my Bookmarks have been removed from these folders.

With Chromium browsers, we can simply search for a Bookmark folder by typing it's name. It will show itself in the search results along with Chrome bookmarks. However, that's not the case with FF. Instead, FF allows us to create TAGS. When I search for a known Bookmark Folder (I can see it in the Bookmark Tree) it won't show up.

it's almost 2024 and I find it surprising that Mozilla hasn't yet incorporated searching for Bookmark Folders. At the same time, I am also (not) surprised that Google hasn't implemented TAGS like in Firefox. Unfortunately, neither browser is ideal for searching bookmarks including folders.

Perhaps I'm missing something and there's a feature in the About:config that allows us to search for Bookmark folders.
