The default open/save folder is a per program setting. The open/save dialog can also 'remember' the last chosen folder and will return there. Taking your example of virustotal.com, it presented my Downloads folder. I then browsed to My Documents and opened a file from there, uploading it. I closed my browser, opened it again and returned to virustotal. ...

If you prefer to use both mouse and keyboard like this solution then in Firefox just use Right-click+L Notice the underline below L in "Copy Link" If the link is in focus the you can replace right click with the menu key: ≣ Menu+L

Thanks to Michael's answer I found the Share option: right click on the tab and you get it: Thanks guys from Mozilla for "the best" user experience.

I found it by doing a ctrl+click on the tab name. It then shows a contextual menu containing the old sharing option. Not really convenient though.

I found the way to achieve this was by adding the relevant code to the user.js file of the default profile, as opposed to creating a new profile, this was not required. Mozilla documentation and even the comments in the prefs.js state that any changes to the file will be overwritten when firefox starts and to use the user.js file.

New answer You said in the comments that you actually don't know whether this is a PHP eval() in the first place. The thing is, PHP is not the only language that has an eval() – JavaScript has an eval() function as well. Now while having PHP code in your browser's cache is mildly unusual, having JavaScript code in your browser's cache is completely normal, ...

Firefox does not support importing private keys from "PEM" files. When you ask it to import a certificate from a PEM or DER file, it'll import only the certificate, not any private keys that might be in the file. Instead, it expects to associate the certificate with an "unbound" private key that it already has (i.e. one that was ...

I ran into the same problem earlier. It was because I did not install any browsers. To install Chrome: download it using this command: wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb execute the downloaded installer: sudo apt install ./google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb launch the browser: google-chrome Later, I decided ...

Setting browser.proton.enabled to false in about:config did work for me.

For me the browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled = false fix worked In the browser address bar, type about:config. Search for "browser.proton" to get a list. Disable Browser.Proton.Contextmenus.enabled Here is a screenshot of the same menus after this was done:

I cannot tell the difference between the active and the inactive window. They are tabs, not windows. There are several way to change the colours. Disable proton. It can be disabled by setting browser.proton.enabled to false. Mozilla do have a habit of disabling such options so it may not be available in Firefox 90. You can modify userChrome.css to change ...

Firefox supports Web Push notifications. This listens for notifications on a random UDP port.

The same thing happened to me. This worked (from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1186601): Find the latest profile that FF just created. Mine was in "C:\Users\(my_name)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles". Look for the newest folder, go into it and find the folder called 'chrome'. If the 'chrome' folder doesn't exist, create it. ...

Is there a way to find out, not which tab is currently playing sounds, but which tab last played a sound? I believe the short answer to this is "only with a browser extension". That is, as I understand it, the current crop of mainstream browsers (including Chrome and Firefox) don't generate any messages regarding sound events outside themselves. ...

I don't get the same behavior - the typed address always replaces the current page. The about:config page has some settings that might relate to this problem. Here are some of them and my default values, so check against yours: browser.link.open_newwindow : 3 browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction : 2 browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external : -1 If ...

When you are typing a duplicate URL, you can hold the SHIFT key while pressing Enter to open that dupe URL without switching over to the other tab that contains it. A little off-topic answer When you enter a site in the URL/Location/Address bar and see "Switch to tab" in the drop-down, you can use ALT+Enter to open the new (duplicate) tab anyway ...

Using userChrome.css. you can easily customize many aspects of Firefox. In the example below, inactive tabs are uniformly gray, the active tab is a gradient ascending from red to green, and the tab over which the cursor hovers is a gradient from light to dark gray. Open your Firefox profile. In Linux, Home\.mozilla\firefox\xxxxxxxx.default In Windows, C:\...

For those (like me) who have very large *.jsonlz4 files (mine was 55MB), the Scrounger https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html actually crashes when we upload the file, so it's useless. I created a script to extract the URLs from these large files: https://github.com/matthieuheitz/recover-firefox-session Hope it helps someone!

Not surprisingly I'm not the only one disliking this, and fortunately there's already a fix called Lepton at https://github.com/black7375/Firefox-UI-Fix#installation-guide. It still doesn't feel 100% proper, but so much better already with simple tab separators.

Firefox does not have a feature for remembering the change.

This has something to do with Mozilla's corporate shenanigans that follows the current trends of over-dumbing things down (Google started this !) just for the sake of changing, then wondering why their market share drops even faster: Proton To disable Proton, just type about:config in your address bar then look for the browser.proton.enabled then set it to ...

When you are installing multiple versions of Firefox, you need to be aware that the last installed version of Firefox Nightly will become the "default" in the Windows Registry (or its macOS equivalent). If you use Firefox as your default browser, that can cause problems for you. Because of that, you are better off using the Zip-archive build of the ...

They both report to the system as the same application, just two versions of the 'same thing', therefore the system will always choose the newest version in any split-decision. You can only change that before compile, i.e. at source. You could try reporting it as a bug, get them to change the name the nightly reports to the system as - though don't hold your ...

The utilisation of userChrome.css must be activated so firefox looks for it at startup. For that in about:config the option toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets must be set to true.

On each start of Firefox the file user.js is read after the file prefs.js, and overrides corresponding settings in prefs.js. If you close and restart Firefox then the current settings are saved in prefs.js, so the lines in prefs.js and user.js will now be the same. This might be the reason for your problem. To avoid it, perhaps the solution is to also modify ...

I don't know if it is your case, but I was having exactly the same problem and I just figured out that the problem was an Add-On that I use (YesScript2) for blocking javascript and I accidentally had activated it for my page. So if you have any add-on that blocks javascript, verify if they are not active for that page you are having problems with. Good luck

I have UAC enabled to always notify. So that's not an issue at all. UAC might be exactly the issue. (Not your specific setting, but how UAC works in general.) Programs running as "elevated" through UAC have a higher "integrity level", which prevents lower-integrity programs from tampering with higher-integrity ones (e.g. sending spoofed ...

I was looking for something similar, it was not exactly what i was looking for but i think it provides what you want.

Try changing the Firefox performance settings: Open the Options (or Preferences) settings to the General section. Un-check Use recommended performance settings. Set Content process limit to 1. N.B. I've not tested this; it might be that Firefox would still initiate more than one thread.

After years of searching in vain, I finally found a replacement for SearchWP: Isear by intelfike Works absolutely fantastic, you just have to make the jump-to-word buttons visible by clicking on the extension's icon.

Shaders are most commonly used to produce lit and shadowed areas in the rendering of 3D models. They are downloaded from websites that do such rendering and are cached by the browser to optimize future loads. Privacy issues may arise as caching could help fingerprint the user, by his cached shaders. Also, if shaderA is used and cached when visiting siteA.com,...

There is not. (Source: I wrote the code.) If the encoding depended on user-side configuration, people would create content that would look right for the author but wrong for other site visitors.

The missing menuitem is, for better or worse, not a bug. It was an intentional change made by Mozilla in Firefox 88. My understanding is that are planning on bringing back that menuitem to the context menu in a future version. In the meantime, I can recommend the "View Image Info Reborn", available on AMO here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/...

You cannot configure this. If the encoding was a function of user-side configuration, people would create content dependent on their own settings, and then the content would not show up correctly for other readers. For file: URLs, Firefox autodetects UTF-8 these days. (The older answer was correct when it was posted, though.)

I've figured out how to enable MathML on wikipedia with firefox. Normally, with default settings, wikipedia does put the mathml element into the page, just above where it puts the 'backup' svg. I put backup in quotes, since by default the mathml is hidden and the svg is shown. Of course you can just get the aforementioned extension. But you might not want to....

The memory leak might be in some extension, rather than in Firefox itself. To check, start Firefox in Troubleshoot/Safe mode, by the menu entry Help, then "Troubleshoot Mode…" and click "Restart". If the problem disappears, locate the troublesome extension by selectively disabling extensions in about:addons.

I'd probably say to use an addon to unload the tabs after an amount of time. I have been using Auto Tab Discard to "sleep" tabs and reduce memory usage. It will simply unload the tabs, free up memory and halt any scripts that may be using memory or the CPU. You can configure the timeout or manually trigger sleep on all tabs other than the one you ...

I don't know if this will work for anyone who might still come to this page, but I found a Firefox extension called, "Always active Window - Always Visible." This came about because I was trying to record multiple windows in OBS Studio 26.1 (a screen recorder), and OBS was not recording the browser windows that were minimized (or that I was not ...

Although I too am a Firefox user, this afflicted me today while I was inadvertently using IE Edge v90, which is built on Chrome.

I think the problem was caused by using a public wifi hotspot and someone else who's connected to it doing some sort of attack. It could be a man in the middle (MITM) or ARP spoofing attack. Because when I tried to access gmail with the VPN off I got an error but there was no error when I turned it on. Data that is transmitted through a public wifi hotspot ...
