Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

I just deleted my cache / history, and for some reason this also took Foxit Reader out of my printer options. How do I get it back in? I Tried using "Find Printer", but it would not except an .exe as a printer. I first put Foxit in so long ago, I have no memory of how I did it. I print to pdf most of the time when saving a receipt, etc. and would rather use Foxit than ms. Thanks

Since the latest versions of Firefox--say, the last month or so--Firefox continues to override and change my preferred file association for pdf files. I have gone in through the Windows 10 Start/Settings/Apps to change the file association for pdf files to my Adobe Acrobat Pro, but within a few hours Firefox automatically changes it back, system-wide, to Firefox. This is quite frustrating, to say the least. I have tried the Options within Firefox, and choose (as I do for most files) to "Ask Me First" upon opening, but don't find any further file association info there. Nevertheless, even when viewing my files within Windows Explorer (File Explorer), I cannot keep my chosen files association of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as it continually reverts to Firefox.

How can I disable this behavior of Firefox 80.0.1 that is overriding my preference? Or is it a bug that can be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance.... Enten

Good day everyone,

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Thanks

Hi Friends,

I have read the other posts on this questions.

I have a very unique use case. My grandfather is 101 and still going strong. He loves his computer and regularly has in-depth questions that he calls me with.

The firefox (latest version) updates are causing him serious problems though. It seems like they are very regular - I know this is good, but in this case, being 101, I just want him to be able to use his computer without being bothered with the updates. I am aware of the different options, but unfortunately there is not a "turn off" option (why!). I did read something about modifying a .json file though. On a side note, I'm a computer guy and have been involved with IT for over 30 years. The firefox updates are a "bother" for other people I work with as well.

Does somebody have the code they can share to turn off these updates? When this stupid covid is over I will be seeing him regularly and will perform the updates myself.

Thank you.

Hello everyone.

I am having an issue with Firefox Desktop on my Linux machine(MX Linux). Before I was able to install themes and extensions from the marketplace just fine. However recently when I try to install a theme or extension through the marketplace, I get the green button that says "Only with Firefox -- Get Firefox Now" instead of the blue button that says "Add to Firefox".

I have tried purging all files and re-installing the application. I even went as far as deleting anything Firefox that was in my root files. I was able to change the theme and add a suggested extension through the Add-On settings but that was all.

To me it seems like the marketplace is not recognizing the browser as Firefox. Any help is much obliged.

Love the great new feature of Firefox Screenshots - useful to take shots of full pages rather than screen captures.

It doesn't work on airtable forms which is on place it would be really useful for me eg. https://airtable.com/shrcLBYFthQs5WrSQ

It just takes a shot of the visible area of the page even when selecting Full Screen.

I've tried on mac and windows - I've tried turning it off and on again in about:config, I couldn't see any <frameset> tags which are reported not to work.

Any clues?

I CANNOT for the life of me ever imagine how or who in the world would PUT THAT on someone's browser. I FOUND IT when I looked under options, and it blew my mind. I think it got there around July 21 an IT HAS BEEN THE SOURCE OF SO MANY PROBLEMS AND GRIEF. THE ORGANIZATION IS WEBROOT.


The webroot people say it's not them. I TRIED the suggestion of deleting it from the registry BUT IT IS NOT THERE UNLIKE OTHERS WHO HAVE IT THERE SO I CAN LIVE AN EASY TIME AND JUST GET RID OF IT. I UNINSTALLED and reinstalled this browser but it is back.

I AM THE ONE WHO CONTROLS THE BROWSER/ -- NOT WEBROOT. 

If firefox doesn't get that, and has to do this nasty garbage by putting this "your browser is being controled by your organization" LET ME REMIND THEM, I CONTROL WEBFROOT, I PAY FOR IT, I CONTROL IT. MY WISHES ARE THE ONES THAT ARE HONORED. I AM THE OWNER OF THE NOTEBOOK

never i don't see chrome doing this. I don't see ie doing this.

i want it gone.

CAN SOMEONE please tell me how to get rid of it>

i looked into the registry and don't see "mozilla" under the policy in the registry keys. woudl it be elsewhere?

THIS IS MY NOTEBOOK. I WILL DECIDE WHAT IS WHAT. THIS DAMN THING HAS CAUSED A MULTITUDE OF IRRITATIONS BEOFRE I FIGURED OUT WHAT THE HELL WAS CAUSING THEM. I NOW USE CHROME, I AM TIRED OF HAVING TO RE-SET THE DAMN DEFAULT PROGRAMS -- HOW DO YOU PEOPLE LIVE IWTH YOUSELVES TO CAUSE SO MANY PROBLEMS FOR PEOPLE? I HAVE NOW SPENT ALL MORNING FROM 8 AM AND I WANT TO SCREAM. IF THIS IS WHAT THIS BROWSER DOES, I WILL GET RID OF IT. THERE AER OTHERS, LIKE SAFARI ETC. EVEN IE WHICH I WILL USE OVER BEING B ULLIED BY THIS.

Hi, I figured if anyone knew how to accomplish this, someone here would, because I'm at a loss.

I'm looking to use userChrome.css customizations to bring back the native focus outline (the blue glow) around the URL bar when it's in focus. I feel like this should definitely be possible in one way or another.

This is how my URL bar looks currently: image 1 below (or: https://imgur.com/IQDXejh) This is the "glow" to which I'm referring, which is native to OS X: image 2 below (or: https://imgur.com/ImA6Of8) For the record, I was only able to achieve that second example by using ":root #urlbar {-moz-appearance: textfield;}" which is obviously out of the question and only to illustrate the outline I'm seeking to add to URL bar in the first example.

Put another way, I just want my URL bar to use the native OS X outline glow when in focus (instead of my current 2px border) without changing any other styling, custom or otherwise (as much as possible).

I'm using 78.2.0esr on OS X 10.9.5 and the full contents of my userChrome.css file are: https://pastebin.com/QFsxdaF5 Thank you in advance for any help. Please let me know if I missed something important or can provide anymore information.

Since I help a lot of folks to set up Firefox, and customize the settings a lot, it would be great to have a way to export and import those custom settings. Sync is no help as they don't have an account/setup to sync the settings FROM. But since sync CAN update the settings, how about giving us a separate way to do the same via an exported file????

Please? Sure would make my time to install and set up a LOT easier.
