Stupid "Find more search engines" won't give me the option to browse list of available search engines alphanumerically. I can only browse by "Relevance" (which is useless when there's no way to tell it which website's search engines you're looking for), Most Users (Youtube is pretty popular, right, so it should at least be somewhere on the first ten pages. It isn't), Recently updated, Top rated and Trending.

I don't want to scroll through 91 pages of results just to add one stupid search engine.

Firefox thinks the default application for viewing pdfs should be mac's TextEdit (which just produces jumbled garbage). I can manually change the application when the download window appears, but how do you change the default for future downloads? I can download the pdfs correctly from Safari and they open in my pdf viewer (Preview).

When downloading (saving) an HTML page currently there is no reference to a source URL, where the page originally resides. It is often important to have this URL. IE and Chrome add comment somewhere at the top of the saved HTML document. Currently Firefox does not. It would be nice to have this feature in Firefox.

I have a dual boot windows/linux with firefox installed on both of them. I use the same firefox account with sync. Linux is fine and I just had to log in once to sync it, but on windows, firefox continually desyncs. Like, practically every time (but not always) I use this partition and open firefox, it's desynced and I have to re-sync it manually (and it is a lenghty process because I have to log into firefox sync, then go to my email address and retrieve a code to confirm it's me).

Ps: I have linux mint and windows 7.

Whenever I go to Firefox, a pop-down prompt appears, asking me to "Make MSN my homepage". But MSN is already my home page. I've gone through the process multiple times to add it, thinking Firefox will finally understand that MSN is already my homepage. But the prompt keeps coming up. How do I stop this prompt?

Hi there! In my Firefox setting selected option is restoring of previous session. But sometimes (NOT EVERYtime) it open on seperate windows the two ordinary bookmarks - each time they are the same two sites (let's call them "problem sites"). These sites have never been chosed for my starting page or something like that. I tried to understand the system files in "Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles", but I could not understand the syntax. I find my "problem sites" along with other bookmarks in session's and recovery's files - that's all with my knowledge =( I tried to reinstall Firefox with full clean of user's files, but after I restored my setting with profile synchronization and restoring bookmarks via "speed dial" extension, and my problem was restored too.

I'm sorry for my English, it's my first try to explain a complex technical trouble. In case with russian speaking users I write original text: Иногда (но не всегда!) при запуске Firefox у меня открывается два отдельных окна, в каждом из которых по одному сайту из моих закладок. При этом окно с восстановленной сессией открывается тоже, с ним всё нормально. Характерно, что каждый раз, когда это всё таки происходит - это одна и та же пара сайтов. По-английски не смог сформулировать, но это самые обычные сайты, с ними не связаны какие-то расширения браузера, у них нет особых разрешений или чего-то в таком роде; они никогда не были стартовыми. Это началось довольно давно, и я не помню, чем я мог вызвать эту проблему. Иногда этой фигни не происходит неделями =\ Я пытался переустановить браузер с полной очисткой пользовательских файлов, но потом отсинхронил настройки через аккаунт Firefox и закладки через расширение "speed dial" - вместе с какой-то из синхронизаций вернулась и проблема. Я даже Винду за это время менял (с 7ой до 10 версии).

I have a fresh install of Firefox Version 75 64 bit on a Windows 7 machine. If I open a picture or other material copied from the web and saved to the machine, Firefox attempts to "download latest" even though I HAVE THE LATEST. I have never had a systemic problem with Firefox before. The computer was custom built hardware for Windows 8, but has 7 running on it. I plan to upgrade to Windows 10 but do not want to do so at present. Firefox runs fine except for this constant and annoying attempt to update which I have to abort.

Looking up a video/movie information on www.IMDB.com

1. Actor thumbnails to left of name not there. Other graphics seem to be OK, but do not normally look at the advertising garbage, so cannot say for sure.

2. Individual actor name selected. On actor's page, went to that actor's photo gallery. Thumbnails were there. Click on a thumbnail and get blank screen rather than the actual picture.

3. Unaware of any problem with any other site I visit regularly.

4. Checked everything using Opera browser and all was well.

5. This problem did not occur on FF x32 used last week before upgrade. Upgrade was only thing installed on hard drive after previous drive was cloned over weekend. Old hard drive (with FF x32) can be re-installed in 10 minutes.
