How to delete "main" sites (like "youtube.com") from automatic suggestions in the address bar

When I type "you" in the address bar, Firefox autofills to "youtube.com". However, I would like it to autofill to "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" instead.

In other cases, I can use shift+delete to remove suggestions so they no longer are offered; however, this does not appear to work for sites like youtube.com, as pressing shift+delete temporarily removes the suggestion but adding an additional "t" ("yout") causes it to autofill as "youtube.com" again.

Is there a way to delete these suggestion so the subdomain "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" is automatically suggested when I start typing this?

Ok so I have an issue with loading web pages via SOCKS5 + VPN in Firefox

I tried disable all the plug-ins also changed **network.proxy.allow\_hijacking\_localhost** from false to true and also changed **network.proxy.socks\_remote\_dns** from false to true.

None of this options helped :( I spent all day to figure out what's the problem but with no result.

I have used instructions on how to set up SOCKS5 from here: https://5socks.net/Manual/browser\_en.html(https://5socks.net/Manual/browser_en.html) but every time I try to acces let's say [google.com](https://google.com) I get the message "Unable to connect" like there is no internet.

I beg you guys to help me out... I did a lot of research but didn't find any proper solution.

Thanks in advance! Hope everyone is healthy and happy!

I am using the current release of the browser and I've noticed sites I've visited during private browsing are showing up under Highlights when opening a blank new tab.

I've noticed this at home and at work as I use sync.

When I delete the page from highlights I'm asked if I'm sure I want to delete the link from my history

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help
