I recently switched to a UK keyboard layout (Logitech MX keys with UK layout), from a US international layout. I changed the system settings to use the proper input and it works like a charm on every program I have, except the browser. Even if I have changed Firefox's main language as "English (UK)" and restarted it, it doesn't recognize sequences such as "CTRL + `" follwed by a vocal. Is there any known solution to this issue?

When I do a search using the address bar, clicking a search engine won't take me to the result directly. Instead a blue box (e.g. @Google) pops up in the address bar, and I have to click one more time to do the search. But the Firefox installed in my office needs one click only (i.e. no blue box pop-up). Is there a way to prevent the blue box from appearing?

(Both versions of Firefox are up to date, 83.0 64bit)

Control_Shift_Delete brings up some options for deleting stuff. There's cache and cookies amongst others. So as my Firefox folder in Users was getting huge I thought I'd trim things down so I checked just cache. But when I continued I had to log in to my sites again. Why? Shouldn't the cookies that I didn't delete take care of that? What went wrong? I do not want to eliminate cookies, just whatever is taking up so much space. ( I have a small C drive.)

SYSTEM SPECS: OS: Windows 7 System Type: 64-bit Operating System RAM: 2 GB Firefox Version: 87.0 (64-bit Installation)

I want to try the new Proton UI for Firefox. I followed all these steps: 1. Go to "about:config". 2. Search for "proton" and set the "browser.proton.enabled" from false to true. 3. Restart Firefox.

But that didn't work. Is the Proton UI no longer supported in Windows 7? Or some other problem...

Where are the favorites pages in recent versions of Firefox for mac? I go to one URL dozens a day and have to type in the full address each time. If this particular URL worked in other browsers I sure would use something else. I'm sure this is just something the I am overlooking but don't know what.

Hi,

Using FF 91, I'm unable to remove autocomplete entries in the url field. I'm following the instructions from this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1300485

and the KB entry on which this page is based: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries

On a Windows 10 PC, I've tried using both the Delete key and the Shift+Delete but the entry I'm trying to get rid of keeps coming back. I also removed all cookies associated with this url.

Would greatly appreciate your help.

Hi, I have recently discovered that I cannot save all images via the above route. Might this have something to do with an update? This feature is very useful when you are working with some technical sites that have images of interest. Instead of save the images one by one, or use additional unnecessary addons that may or may not work, I could select all images, point to a subfolder and say 'Open.' This has stopped working. My currecnt version is Firefox 84.0.2, 64-bit, on Linux. Any ideas/solutions on how to get this feature back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This does not work and hasn't for a while.

"Clearing a single item from the address bar history

   To clear a single item in the address bar history, type or paste enough text for Firefox to show the item in the drop-down.
   Press the ↓ down arrow key or move the mouse, to highlight the browsing or Search history entry to delete.
   To clear the highlighted item, hold down the Shift key and press Delete on your keyboard."

Surely there must be a simple way to do this?

I know how to create shortcuts, but what I am trying to do is create shortcuts on my Firefox home page. With Chrome I think I click on Add Shortcut, type in a name and below it the web URL. Takes a few seconds. So many of the results I get for Firefox are years old, very old versions of Firefox. My Firefox is the latest version. It can't be this difficult. Two clicks and a little typing and Chrome adds one.

I'm a web designer, trying to move away from Chrome because of privacy/security issues. I'm also 63 years old. My eyes are old. The text size on the tabs and bookmarks is very difficult to read. I don't want to increase the size of everything else - ***just the tab and bookmark text***. I've tried the fix seen elsewhere in the community for this question, but that doesn't change the size at all. If I increase the size, say by Zoom, that's a problem with my page layout. Can anyone help, please?

I'm on a Mac, but using an LG monitor, so no Retina display.
