    RE: Disable the page actions button in the top right corner.

    You can use this: chrome.zip

    Extract the folder named Chrome and drop it in your FF Profile.

    Note: If you already have a Chrome folder then it probably won't work. In that case you'd need to make additional modifications.

    Folder contains a custom userChrome.css file to remove Page Actions. You need to close FF to make th changes.

    For anyone else reading: Contents of userChrome.css file

    Code:
    #pageActionButton {
        display: none !important;
    }
    Save as UNICODE (Encoding) with file name userChrome.css

    You can install an addon to set the focus: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir...-tab-override/
    Seems to work, but I was hoping i could do it with a fix in about:config, instead of installing addons?

    Try disabling hardware acceleration

    Tried it already, didn't solve the problem. With that being said, i havent had any lag since upgrading to FF quantum. Will give it some time before marking it as solved.

    I installed your Luna Theme but couldn't find a way to modify the buttons. That doesn't mean that it cannot be done but the theme seems to use an image overlay.
    The luna XP theme used to work flawlessly, however an update some time ago broke it, so the back/forward buttons and the menu button is now invisible with the theme installed.

    I'm not sure that it's a Firefox issue. I don't have that problem but check this in about:config

    browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll
    value should be true

    If set to true then check mouse click options in control panel or run your mouse control software if you have any.
    It only works with the first website when you open FF. If you open a new tab and then click on the adress bar, it will not select all the text with just one click, so you have to mark all the text with your mouse manually and then delete it before you can type a website. This is very annoying. Google chrome didn't have this issue.

    Possibly a DNS Lookup issue - especially if you are using your ISP's DNS.

    RE: Scratchpad.

    In about:config change devtools.chrome.enabled value to true

    With Firefox running launch Scratchpad by pressing Shift+F4

    You only need to do that if you want to test that CrashReporter is disabled and want to initiate a crash manually for test purposes.

    I can't reproduce the problem. It works fine for me.

    See:


    RE: about:config fix for page actions button. I'm pretty sure that there isn't one. It's pretty straightforward to drop the attached file in the chrome folder though.

    Just a suggestion:

    Create a Bookmark about:blank, wheel-click it to open in a New Tab with cursor already focused in Address Bar:

    Also:
    if you want New Tab to open to a certain page, bookmark that page and wheel-click that to open in a New Tab:

    You can also wheel-click anywhere on the Firefox Header to open another original New Tab:

    I found that if i click the adress bar right away, it doesnt select all the text. However, if i click on the website (anywhere on the website) and then click on the adress bar, it selects all the text. Strange. I think this may have to do with FF setting focus to the adress bar instead of the website when you open a new tab. Will test it a bit.

    OK, so i tested it a bit. Callenders solution works.

    You have to set browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll to true in about:config, use the addon suggested and select set focus to the web page instead of the address bar. It will set focus on google search if you open a new tab, and it will let you select all the text in the adress bar with one click so you can start typing a website you want to visit right away.

    Just a note to say that crashreporter.exe is reinstated after applying a Firefox update. You can just check for it and delete it again.
