I have set the "Homepage and new windows" and "New tabs" option to Tabliss

However when launching Firefox, it starts in google.com and when I checked the "Homepage and new windows" option it was reset to google.com without me touching it.

I tried using custom URLs and put in "moz-extension://something-something/index.html" but it still didn't work and resets to google.com when relaunching Firefox.

I also tried putting other URLs such as YouTube it still put me into google.com when relaunched and resets it again.

It only works when I open a new tab.

How do I make Tabliss (or anything else) as my homepage when I launch Firefox?

It appears that 2 preferences are regularly changing by themselves on a family member's WIndows 10 laptop.

1. The "mailto" option disappears from Applications. We fix it a Firefox Refresh which restores it...until it disappears again within days or weeks.

2. The "Always ask where to save files" unchecks in Downloads. We check it, and it works fine...until it becomes unchecked again within weeks.

What do we need to look for in order to avoid this?

My Firefox has been infected with MyNewTab. All attempts to remove it with various malware-removing software have failed. It does not appear in any list of installed software. I have found that I can only stop it from interferring with firefox by uninstalling firefox and reinstalling it - without syncing. So I am now trying to reinstatre Firefox to more or less how it was before.

The only real issue is that before it had an add-on - Norton Safe Web - which is not added now. I tried uninstalling Norton 360 and reinstalling it in the hope it would get the addon added. It didn't. But according to what I read it is very easy to add an add-on. I can select it from the list of add-ons, thus displaying a page all about it. According to help notes, you just click to add-on this choicre. But I can see nowhere to click to do it. I've been over that page time after time but see no way of progressing.

Help!!!

Colour Management on two monitors - only one works

I have two different wide-gamut displays, both are colour calibrated with profiles correctly installed and assigned in Windows 11. I have set the the about:config colour management settings correctly in Firefox so that it should render with colour management.

One monitor display renders colours correctly, but the other displays the uncorrected wide gamut of the display. If I try a browser test, like Cameratico's, it confirms that the colour management tags are not being respected on the second display, but they are on the first.

Setting the force or native sRGB tags does nothing on the second monitor.

How can I fix this?

I have Windows 10 on my desktop computer. Yesterday Firefox updated to version 105. Now when I launch Firefox, and my HomePage loads, the address bar appears highlighted already (like as if I had clicked on it to type in a website). It was never like this before. I tried making Firefox the default homepage- still did it. I went back and set my favorite home page back in- still did it. I also re-started Firefox between each change. Is this a "glitch" with the last update? Is there any "about:config" setting that I need to change settings on? I'd appreciate any help, I know this is a minor problem but it is very frustrating! There have been many changes Firefox has made in the past that luckily I've been able to disable, but I cannot find anything to fix this one.

I've been receiving notifications for a good while. I could click on an icon in my toolbar and it would list the most recent notifications. I could click on the one in which I was interested and the browser would open that website with the info referred to by the notification. Now I can't find that icon. I like that feature but as I research, it seems that I was dreaming. I can't find any info about the referred to icon. I like the notification but I can't figure out how to get to them.

Thank you, David Shreffler Pryor, OK
