Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

So i want to add a custom search engine (Startpage specifically) in Firefox Android. After adding I notice Firefox didn't get the icon of the search engine, but using a generated icon (simply a letter 's') which is kind of ugly considering I want to use it as default search engine and the icon would stay in my new tab.

Is there any way to add the icon, or other way to solve my problem?

I have an add-on which is installed from the public add-on store (?). This add-on works quite good.

Nevertheless I made some tiny adjustments in the source to fullfill my needs. I can manually load the file from the add-on manager which works as well.

But as soon as I do one of the two task:

  • restart the whole computer (or logout and login)
  • Check for Update

the manually loaded xpi is gone. It is only the public one available.

==> How to have the manually adapted xpi loaded all the time and the public one not any more?

Firefox 86: change print margin unit from inch to millimeters

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

An Evernote contact spent an hour with me and took over my computer with my permission. She could not fix the problem. She said that I would have to create another Firefox Profile. The one I have is broken or corrupted. Here's a note from our session:

Here are the steps to create a new Firefox profile, if you would like to give that a try:

1) Open Firefox profiles page (copy and paste about:profiles to the URL address bar). 2) Find a profile with a label "This is the profile in use and it cannot be deleted" and remember it. 3) Create new profile with any name and location by default. 4) Set new profile as default profile: the image that evidently can't be copied and pasted here states: "Profile: TEST NEW PROFILE, Default Profile yes" 5) Restart Firefox. 6) Install Evernote Clipper 7) Click on Web Clipper icon and check if Clipper menu opens and article is clipped

If this procedure helps, the main reason is a corrupted initial Firefox profile (where the Clipper issue happens.) If this is the case, I recommend using the new profile you just created.

To return to the initial profile, set as default the profile from the step 2 and restart Firefox.

For more information about Firefox Profile Manager, click here.

If this workaround doesn't resolve the issue, please contact Firefox support. I'm afraid I don't have more information about the Firefox profile setup on your Mac.

I did not try that. Thought I'd go to the Firefox experts first!

hello everyone,


I'm having a trouble that seems to be frequent lately (see below a former discussion), and that is driving me nuts.

I've installed my dictionaries, verified the about.config marks, and still the right click for spell check and language choice has disappeared on my outlook 365 web.

Curiously, it works perfectly on Outlook 365 web on Chrome, and here in this text box on Firefox.

Would anyone have a clue how to fix it? (don't want to have to switch browser from Firefox)


Thank youé1 Daphne

Thank you for your replies all. I have worked it out. The language packs were installed but not "Unpacked" All OK now. Thanks cor-el cor-el

Language packs (strings for the user interface) do not need to be unpacked, but dictionaries always do need to be unpacked (they have an unpack property), so do not mix up these two.

Beste,

Ik print heel vaak. De laatste twee weken krijg ik geen "afdrukvoorbeeld" meer bij "bestand". Dat was zeer handig aangezien men dan een pagina kreeg van de betrokken webpagina die toeliet om ook de afdruk te vereenvoudigen (grootte tekst, weghalen vermelding datum, naam pagina, ...).

Hoe krijg ik dat terug ?

I accidentally lost the recommended articles which can be saved to pocket (optional). There should be a checkbox that asks: ARE YOU SURE ? There must be an EASY way to get the articles back. While I'm here I'd like to say that a lot of the help files or comments don't have any pictures. A picture IS worth a thousand words so it would be nice to have more of that. Someone could ask you what someone else looked like and you could sit there and type a long time or (so much faster) show them a picture if you have one, right ? Let's go a step further and use a dismantled car engine. Even more complex. Are you starting to get it ?  :-)

Hello everyone.

I tried switching Firefox (Windows 10) from Polish to English. (It is nice to see a program in your native language. However, most manuals, tutorials, forums etc. on the Web are in English, so using English version of apps wherever possible feels straightforward and consistent). I found one functionality that is browser language dependent for no reason - availability of search engines. Specifically, allegro.pl (Polish auction site). It's there by default when Firefox language is set to Polish. When I switch to English, it disappears along with other default Polish search engines, only to be replaced by English ones.

When I try a "manual" setup of search engines, allegro.pl is nowhere to be found. Firefox settings -> find search engines - no official allegro search engine (just some fan-made add-ons). Go to allegro.pl -> Firefox search bar - I expected the icon of magnifier with green plus sign that would add the search engine of current site - again it's not there.

Is there any workaround? Cheers, Rafał

It's been hours since I sent any messages, so TB surely isn't sending any messages. I restart TB, and they all go away.
