I am trying to switch from Google to Firefox, but I still use my Google email. I uploaded my contacts from Google to Firefox, but I am trying to edit my own contact info in Gmail contacts, but when I click the edit button, nothing happens. Do I need to edit it in Firefox, and will that edit migrate back to Gmail? Why can't I edit it in my Gmail contacts (in the Gmail right-hand toolbar), and it will update my Firefox contacts automatically?

If you are going to require "A" file type, fucking say what type it has to be and provide a converter or screenshot tool! I Tried .Docx and PDF. Word does not save to PNG or JPEG so they are not an option.

AT THIS POINT, I AM STRONGLY RECONSIDERING SWITCHING FIREFOX!!!!!!

Firefox 126 has changed the tabbar tab background handling and I cannot find a way to get my graphical tab background back for the selected tab. The left image shows FF 125.3; the left 126.0, which installed itself yesterday. In the userchrome for the old Firefox I have:

    #TabsToolbar:not(:-moz-lwtheme) .tabbrowser-tab .tab-content
 {
   background-image: url("file:///D:/System Graphics/Toolbar Backgrounds/rgsweeve - 000.bmp") !important;
 }
  #TabsToolbar:not(:-moz-lwtheme) .tabbrowser-tab .tab-content[selected="true"]
 {
   background-image: url("file:///D:/System Graphics/Toolbar Backgrounds/rgsweeve - 040.bmp") !important;
 }

This gave me the differentiated selected and unselected tabs but does not work for the selected tab in the new Firefox. Any ideas how I have to specify this now?

[I am making this post using the older version of Firefox. If I get some suggestions I'll reinstall the newer version (actually turn auto update back on) and try them out. Thanks.]

Hello dear community,

I have a program that continuously monitors the download folder under Windows 11 for a specific file and retrieves it. I download this file in Firefox, but the said program gives an error.

I have noticed that when files are downloaded in FireFox, they already appear in the Downloads folder with the corresponding file extension with 0 bytes and these are then apparently swapped or merged with the .parts file.

The problem is that the mentioned program now tries to retrieve the unfinished file, which then leads to an error.

Does anyone know if it is possible to customize Firefox so that the file only appears in the download folder when the download is fully complete?

Many thanks for your help :D

Sometimes a box pops up on the screen that asks if I want to block or allow something. Sometimes I have no interest in doing either, and just want the damned dialog out of my face. The page seems to work otherwise, but the stupid browser keeps the dialog over top of things, and clicking outside of it, and hitting Esc, don't make it go away. I think those actions used to work, and I think there, sensibly, used to be a dismiss option, but that seems to be absent now. There's no sense to trying to force me to make a decision I don't want to make, and doesn't even need to be made, and I want this thing to cut it out.

Firefox seems to forget edits made to text boxes. I was reading a large pdf and adding notes to previously made text boxes. I thought I must be going crazy as I saw there was no notes I thought I had already made multiple times so I tested it. I edited a text box, scrolled a bit and continued browsing on another monitor. Checked in a minute and boom edit gone. If anyone has a solution I'd appreciate it as I have been using Firefox PDF editor for a bit and quite liked it until now.

I have made Firefox my default browser, and set Google as my default search engine.

I'd like to keep it that way, BUT ...

Every morning when I come to work and open my browser and begin to search .. Yahoo comes up .. or Bing ???? I delete them, and again set Google as the default ... BUT FIREFOX CONTINUES TO REVERT TO YAHOO, or BING SEARCH RESULTS  ?!?!?!?!?!?

Even when I deliberately open Google and search in Google .. the results appear and then suddenly, a new window pops up with Yahoo results, covering up the Google results????

How can I make Firefox respond to the default search setting I choose????

This is intolerable. If I can't get ride of Yahoo and Bing and all these other inferior search engines, then I'm going to go back to using Chrome.

When on the Princess Cruise web site looking at various cruise options, the Firefox browser will not let me open the list of excursions for the ports on the cruise that we were looking to book, but I can see them when using Google Chrome. Why won't Foxfire allow me to view the excursions - it use to allow me to see them.

I always keep two Youtube tabs open at all times on my computer. After a while of running, however, the site starts to get increasingly laggy, in a way that simply reloading the tab does not fix. (I am aware that this is likely a result of one of the extensions I have installed that affects Youtube's behavior, specifically SponsorBlock and Return Youtube Dislike, but I am not willing to uninstall these.) I also know of a "force reload" - pressing ctrl + shift + R instead of just ctrl + R in order to clear the cache or something.

However, whenever Youtube starts getting really slow, I instead like to do something I call "crashing the tab" - I open my system monitor, look for the current most CPU-intensive "Isolated Web Co" process, and end it. This pops up an error message in Firefox that says "Gah - your tab just crashed!" and offering me the option to restore it. After restoring it from this window, the performance is back to normal.

My question is, is this beneficial, or is it functionally identical to a normal force-reload? Is the improvement I see between this method and force-reloading the page just placebo? And if not, is there a simpler way to do it without opening a second program?
