If you don't know about smart keywords, basically you can set phrases as shortcuts for specific bookmarks. I want a folder with all of my keywords synced, and that folder only. On each profile or account I have have whatever other folders and the placement of the folder with the keywords doesn't matter as long as they have the same name.

Question about Firefox's Add-On Facebook Container. I really appreciate the fact that Firefox works very hard for us to keep our privacy online. However, I've realized that the Facebook Container Extension Breaks a fair number of Websites, which tells me that Facebook Tracks something like 98% of all internet.

This morning I tried logging into the Mozilla Connect Website and I was surprised to see that the Facebook Container broke it also. I'm wondering one of two things: Either Mozilla now is using Facebook Trackers on their Website, or the Facebook Container Add-On has some bugs, and it breaks random Websites.

Anyone else come across similar issues? Is it in the realm of possibility that Mozilla actually uses Facebook Trackers on their Website themselves??

I'm looking to create an "Exit Button" in the Bookmarks Toolbar. I found how to create a Restart Button (creating a Bookmark with the URL about:restartrequired), but I'm having a hard time finding for Exit (or close all Firefox Windows). Perhaps it is not possible, I don't know.

Any help is appreciated.

Is it a fair assessment? I'm still on Firefox. Why is it so hard for Firefox to gain traction?

Enhancer for YouTube is gone (discourse.mozilla.org)
submitted 2 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Yet another popular extension has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It seems that its author might have requested its removal, but if so then even in that case the longstanding Mozilla policy of telling its users absolutely nothing about what happened applies.

It happened a month ago but it took me this long to notice since the feature I like best only recently stopped working. It's the sort of thing that requires periodic updates to keep up with changes to the youtube UI.

Does anyone know of another extension that can automatically resize the youtube player to fill the browser window? Or, for that matter, the invidious one?

In anticipation of the launch of open extensions on Android, we just added a link to “Explore all Android extensions” on AMO’s Android page to make it easy to discover new content. And just for fun and to offer a taste of what’s to come, we also released a couple dozen new open extensions for Android. You can find them listed beneath the Recommended Extensions collection on that AMO Android page. Try a few out!

I'm sure its common knowledge by now that whatever you write in text boxes on customer support chats can be seen by whoever is on the other side, without or before hitting send. Don't you think that's a breach of privacy?! I imagine it isn't too difficult to implement a fix for it: The browser (like Firefox) could choose not to upload the user input to wherever the website links to, without user input (like click a send button).

The Firefox extension API explicitly requires user actions before an extension can do things like open popup windows.

I really don't like the psuedo-native look of the element dropdown menu on macOS, and I thought Firefox was trying to embrace native widgets when they added support for macOS right click context menus a few years ago. That issue was open for 20+ years! This sucks.
