There are many cathegories to filter addons at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/ sadly none to sort by popularity. A popularity filter to list firefox addons would be a great feature.

Speaking of great features, addons.mozilla.org should not use google-analytics.com Mozilla on the one hand promotes privacy or atleast makes the impression of doing so, but on the other hand tracks their users by default and uses google analytics on their extensions website. There are privacy friendly alternatives to google analytics, why did Mozilla decide to use an invasive bigtech option? It is very unlikely for mozilla to quit using google analytics just because of this thread, and even if i asked on the apropriate forum or email chances are nothing will change. It's just sad mozilla uses google analytics, there's nothing else to say.


Another question, Mozilla in this article https://addons.mozilla.org/blog/firefoxs-most-popular-innovative-browser-extensions-of-2021/ claims that there have been a total of 133 million visits to addons.mozilla.org However this site https://www.similarweb.com/website/addons.mozilla.org/#overview claims that addons.mozilla.org had a total of 10.9 million visits over time, which seems incorrect since ublockorigin alone already has 7 million+ users. I've always thought that similarweb is a reputable source, or maybe not?

I often see a Shortcut on my New Tab that I have never gone to, which says "sponsored" on it. I do not want these ads. I have looked up the answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sponsor-privacy?as=u&utm_source=inproduct I can manually delete a sponsored shortcut once, but this does not stop them from coming onto future New Tabs. My problem is, the long-term answer simply does not work. Settings -> Home -> Firefox Home Content simply does not contain a section that says "Sponsored shortcuts" and therefore this solution is not accessable. I am on Version 120 as suggested. What is going wrong? How do I prevent these ads from appearing on the New Tab page?

I have an issue with the address bar in private windows. Normally when you click on the search bar in the new tab page, it will redirect the cursor to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar.

I found the following solution on the forum here that works for normal windows: go to the about:config page and set browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false.

For private windows, this fix does not work. It will still go to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar. Is there another way for me to fix this so that it will also work in private windows?

HTML header links to external references, how to display?

In HTML, in the head element, it is possible to specify links to external resources that are relevant to the current page. For example:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/pdf" href="mypage.pdf" title="My Page in PDF Format"> <link rel="license" href="copyright.html" title="Website License Information"> <link rel="next" href="page2.html">

Many years ago, I found an obscure setting that enabled a toolbar that would display all those document links directly in the browser. That was several computers ago, so I cannot look up the about:config setting that enabled the functionality, and my online searches have found nothing even remotely related to the subject.

What happened to that functionality? How can I turn it back on inside the latest version of Firefox?

Addendum: This functionality was not provided by any extension, add-on, or mod. It was implemented directly in the browser itself, downloaded vanilla and clean installed. It was enabled by directly editing the "about:config" page.

As for whether the cited links are intended for automated tools or not, here is the HTML standard itself:

Interactive user agents may provide users with a means to follow the hyperlinks created using the link element, somewhere within their user interface.

And just in case somebody suggests this is somehow new or novel functionality, here it is described in the HTML standard published in 1997:

Although LINK has no content, it conveys relationship information that may be rendered by user agents in a variety of ways (e.g., a tool-bar with a drop-down menu of links).

That "tool-bar with a drop-down menu of links" is almost exactly what Mozilla used to provide. I just want to know what happened to it.

I have attempted to follow published instructions on how to manage extensions but the steps described are completely wrong. When I click the extensions icon, it opens the add-ons tab (does not present a list of extensions). There is no "gear" next to any of my extensions; just the on/off button and the .... button.

How can I force an extension to show on the toolbar?

Firefox is up to date (version 120.0).

I'm having an issue with Fidelity Investments website logging me off after 5-10 minutes of inactivity. Before Fidelity's website redesign, I could go at least 30 minutes or more without having to login again. It seems now I have to login constantly.

I have contacted Fidelity, but the said it was a Firefox issue, however, I cannot find any information about this issue (or I don't know where to look).

How do I extend the time before needing to login again? Thoughts on if is this even a Firefox issue or is it Fidelity's website?

Thank you!

Themes do not stay locked since several updates back. It is ridiculous that every time you open the browser you need to go to settings and get 'dark theme' back on, when it is the only theme many of us with visual problems can use. MANY people have complained about this (read your own reviews). FIX IT! It's doubtless a five minute job to put this back the way it was.

Hello, a couple of years ago I signed up for Pocket Premium so that I could make use of the full-text feature, but I found that full-text search didn't work, which meant that Premium useless for my purposes. This was acknowledged by Pocket Support, and my subscription payment was refunded.

Before I try again it would be interesting to know whether the full-text search has been fixed and now works properly as advertised at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pocket-premium-full-text-search

Hi, I got a new laptop recently and ever since then I've been experiencing this problem. Websites like https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com or https://ukutabs.com offer the option to autoscroll, so that you can play your instrument without having to pause your playing and scroll further yourself. This feature hasn't been working for me ever since I got my new device and since it's various sites, I suppose the problem must be in the browser itself, I just can't figure it out. In the case of Ultimate Guitar, when I click autoscroll, it does move slightly, once, but then stops again, and you'd miss the movement if you're not paying close attention. I can switch between various speeds on this site as well, but it doesn't do anything. In case of Ukutabs, there's not even any kind of response from the site when I click the option. I tried turning on and off Firefox settings concerning autoscrolling and smooth scrolling, but nothing solved my problem.

Thank you for your time and energy, everyone!

I'm a student, which means I'm constantly accessing my university's library page. I've run into a weird URL autocomplete issue that I can't seem to resolve.

Beginning to type "library" in the URL bar leads to Firefox autocompleting with a past college's library site that I haven't used in years. It's not in my bookmarks, I've deleted all its site data in Firefox's history, I've tried the "shift + delete" trick, but nothing's making this autocomplete go away. It doesn't seem like Firefox Suggest, but something else.

All I want is for my school's library to show up as the autocomplete. It's so annoying to navigate away from a website I haven't used in years every time.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?
