Hello When visiting Gumtree marketplace, none of the pictures for the adds display. I have tried a Firefox refresh, and the photos appear but disappear then disappear again if a new Firefox tab is opened or a new search within Gumtree is performed. The Firefox refresh does not appear permanent. I have cleared cache and cookies and this has had no effect. The Gumtree photos display if I revert to using a different browser. How can I refresh Firefox and keep the settings permanent? This problem has only manifested itself in the last two days.

This morning I received a response to a question posted yesterday. However, the response was to a link that did not provide a successful result. I'll try to restate the problem more clearly. Problem: when I click on the address bar to initiate a search, seven choices appear in a drop down menu, none of which I want. These choices include options that are NOT resolved by going to Settings, Options, Search and unchecking a search engine choice. As mentioned before, these also are not in my bookmarks or my search history, or in Extensions, so I'm stumped as to where to go to get rid of them.

Please see screenshots, attached. One screen shot is of my choices in Settings, Options, Search. In this shot, the only search engine I've chosen is DuckDuckGo. The other screen shot is of the drop down choices that appear in my search bar. Please notice that the drop down choices include, for example, Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter. None of these sites appear under Settings, Options, Search. Please help. Thank you.

Hello community! I have some weird behavior with my fox. On every site, like youtube, twitter and almost every other site, I see prompt text blinking pipeline. This appears on youtube videos in left bottom corner, on icons on websites, etc and also allows to highlight text in places that not mean(implied) to perform that. This is doesn't interrupt my experience, but it's kinda annoying and I would like understand what it is and how to disable this. Safe-mod reduces the frequency of behavior appear, but does not fix that completely. Appear on windows and mac os as one. Thanks in advance.

I am using "browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction" to force links that normally open in new windows, to instead open in new tabs. It all works fine, except when I click those links, Firefox switches to the new tabs immediately when I click them. I would like the tabs to open in new tabs but I do not want Firefox to immediately switch to them.

Please note that I have unchecked "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately". Meaning, Firefox correctly does not switch to new tabs for normal links. However, it is switching to the new tabs for links that would normally open in new windows.

Every time I open the browser a page says: "Sorry. We're having trouble getting your pages back". There are two buttons, restore session or start new session. It is annoying to have to do this every time. I have done everything suggested in the help section, from refreshing the browser, exiting browser properly and change the browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes in the about:config. Nothing works.

Firefox is my default browser and DuckDuckGo is my default search engine. Recently something got added (not by me, or at least not on purpose) and I'd like to get rid of it. When I click on the address bar to initiate a search, seven choices appear in a drop down menu, none of which I want. These choices are:

How can I prevent these choices from appearing? Note: they disappear as soon as I start typing in the address bar, but I'm bothered by this unwanted clutter on my screen even if only temporary. Also, these are not in my bookmarks or my search history, nor are they on the list of checked search engines in my preference settings. Thank you.

When I open Firefox a tab for gmail opens every time, but cannot be closed (there is no "X" on the right side of the tab). Therefore, when browsing in other tabs, gmail is always open. How can I close it, or better yet, remove from my computer? It does not show up in the list of programs on my computer within the Control Panel.

Currently the menu only shows "Open Link in New Tab" and "Open Link in New Private Window"

I seem to remember having to edit something in about:config to get this option in the past, but I just installed Firefox on a new computer and can't find the option.

I'm aware that there are other methods of doing that (middle click), but that's not ideal as I'm really used to using the right-click menu.

I'm using Mozilla Firefix for my web browzer. I have a number of tabs open (~10) on my tab bar. I have each tab open to a selected web site. As I switch from one tab to another, at times the tab will come unlocked from the tab bar into a separate window. Then I must reposition it back to where I had it on the tab bar. Is there any way to lock these tabs down to prevent them from unlocking like this..?
