When opening firefox it opens to newtab instead of my homepage which is Yahoo. If I click on the home button it will go to my homepage but I shouldn't have to do that every time. I have cleared the cache and it will work once or twice only then back to the newtab page.

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

With love and Thanks

Hi When I log out of Firefox and then log in again the settings that I want have changed themselves. I want the following settings to remain but they don't.

Logins and Passwords Ask to save logins and passwords for websites Autofill logins and passwords Save History

All the logins and passwords that I want to keep appear in the list and most of the websites still log in as normal BUT there are a couple who insist I re-enter username and password and I don't want to keep having to do this. I have tried clearing all cookies and saved log ins for the problem websites and then re entered them after ticking the login/password option and it works fine. However when I end Firefox and then log in again these websites then insist I re enter everything. I have even deleted version 81 and managed to re-install an earlier version but that still fails.

In a previous incarnation, firefox failed to display a dot with the pdf equivalent of the PostScript 100 100 moveto closepath 10 setlinewidth 1 setlinecap stroke That seems to be fixed in 77.0beta2, although it seems to be using PDF.js In any case, now there is the opposite problem. The pdf equivalent of the PostScript 100 100 moveto closepath 10 setlinewidth 2 setlinecap stroke is showing a little square. This is wrong, it should not show anything.

I've found that input fields will not allow entering a forward slash (/) on Firefox Developer Edition (I am on 77.0b7 64bit at present; Windows 10 64-bit). It has been happening for at least a few weeks now.

This does not happen outside of responsive design mode. This does not happen on regular Firefox (I am on 76.0.1, 64 bit currently) either.

Here is my setup at present. Will provide more if asked!

add-ons: adaware ad block installed. plug-ins: openh264 video codec provided by Cisco systems inc. shockwave flash 32.0r0 widevine content decryption module provided by google inc themes: 'light' is enabled.

Anybody got any thoughts as to what may be going on?

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.
