Add-ons

My about:config settings

  • browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground = true @
  • security.dialog_enable_delay = 100 @
  • set a custom user agent:

    1. Add new string value general.useragent.override
    2. Enter your preferred UA
    3. Check it on https://www.whatsmyua.info/

    This is especially useful if you are on an ARM device (like raspberry pi) and google keeps giving you its mobile version, for example:

    1
    2
    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux armv7l; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0    # before
    Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0    # after
    

Firefox user interface

From mozilla forum:

  1. in about:config set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets = true
  2. then edit ~/.mozilla/firefox/default.profile/chrome/userChrome.css:
