Trouble shooting

Update to the latest version.

Starts with disabled extensions in case they are causing problems:

firefox --safe-mode

Do a “Firefox Refresh”:

Keyboard shortcuts


Tools without shortcut

Settings from the CLI


Single session:


Restore old linear search engines interface: on about:config set to False

Useful about:config options:

Disable Ctrl + Q from closing the app: Only seems possible with extensions. There is an extension just to do it:

Enable spell check in input text fields (by default only on textarea)

Developer tools

Allows you to view and modify a request after triggering it on the website, but before it gets sent: a popup opens, the and request waits for you to modify it.

Great to try and hack websites. Better than curl when there is authentication because the authenticity tokens and cookies are all there.

Auto Reload

Automatically reload page if local file was modified.

Great for previewing HTML output from lightweight markups like Markdown.


Mouseless browsing

Permanently show little unique numeric ID boxes for each link.

You can configure:

Multiple profiles

Argg, so easy in Chrome:

Open tab next to old one

Show tabs vertically
