What can I do to compensate for the terrible spell check ability of Firefox/Thunderbird

I use mostly Chrome browser but it's such a resource, memory and storage hog I've been using FF more. However, while spell check technically works, it's simply terrible and frustrating to use. With Chrome, I hardly had to add words to my dictionary while with FF/TB many essential basic words are flagged.

I read some other posts where FF flags most words, that's not my gripe. The dictionary is pathetic. I can't even find any add-ons/extensions that provide a greater vocabulary.

Are there some tips and tricks besides adding words one can use here?

Is there any way to make Mozilla Firefox automatically rename downloaded files of the same name like Chrome does?

When I right-click on an image in Chrome, and choose `save as`, it doesn't ask me for a new file name if a file with the same name exists in the folder. It just adds a `(1)` suffix to the filename automatically. However, in Firefox, it asks me to type a new file name if the directory contains a file with the same name. Is there any under-the-hood switch to fix this behavior? ( BTW my download option is set to "Save files to Downloads without asking me every time" ) Sounds like a simple problem but imagine you need to download 100 images from a web page and every file on the server is named `image.jpg`.

Like many folks, I have somehow toggled 'Run as Administrator' and then become frustrated as Firefox asks every single time a tab or page opens if I want 'to allow Firefox to make changes to your computer'. Frustrating.

I've seen several answers to go to the 'Compatibility' tab and uncheck 'Run as Administrator' - but that did not seem to be solving the problem. I know it didn't for me!

It seems there is ANOTHER place to deactivate 'Run as Administrator'...and it supersedes the Compatibility input.

Firefox Properties => Shortcut => Advanced. Uncheck 'Run as Administrator'. The problem was solved for me, hope it works for you, too!

Does anyone know of a SIMPLE solution to stop the irritating expanding address bar from doing just that? At first I could stop it in about:config - but that no longer appears to be possible. Why do Mozilla insist on user no longer having that option. I seem no longer to be able to use Firefox. It seems to be the domain of the computer-tech savvy and not a browser for ordinary jerks like me who don't understand a word of the jargon and have difficulty following what seem to be simple tasks to other users. All I want to do is stop that irritating expanding address bar but it seems like I have to become a fully skilled coder just to be able to get into a regular-joe website. It's not what I signed up for. Help? Anybody...?

My office recently adopted SharePoint to replace our VM Ware servers for storing shared data. My colleagues are able to drag and drop email attachments and files from FileExplorer into SharePoint, but I cannot. Finally I realized they use Chrome, Edge, Explorer and other browsers and this functionality works fine. It's only Firefox where it does not. Is there an add on, extension or setting to address the shortcoming. I love Firefox, but if it cannot drag and drop to SharePoint like every other browser does, I will be compelled to (reluctantly and regrettably) make a switch. Please help!

Very Sorry to Have to Ask - Disable Cache for Development

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

I would like to have in next version of Firefox a checkbox, when I click on a text field which has saved username, then I would only see saved usernames for this current website. Now I see saved usernames for all websites.

So when I click on a checkbox, the saved usernames in blue reactangle on picture below, won't be shown. I will only see usernames "From this website".

This can be useful, when there are many saved usernames for many websites.

I'm looking for a way to save a current session to restart later.

The only thing close I've seen is the "Restore Previous Session" option from the History menu. This won't work here, because what I'm hoping to do is close the windows/tabs from a session and start a different session, after which I can load the first session back.

If this isn't possible, then is there a way to combine all my windows into tabs of one window? I would only have to use the "Bookmark All Tabs" option once if I did that.

I know about dragging each tab into one window individually, but I often have more than a few tabs open in each window, so I'm hoping for some automated "Combine" function I could use.

If neither of these are possible, I'll just continue to use the "Bookmark All Tabs" option for each individual window I have open at the time... I'm just hoping for a faster or more efficient way.

Note: I use the Mac OS version of Firefox.

Here's a great tip or suggestion.

I propose that a question being asked should find some relevance in the answers presented.

In my last two inquiries there has been zero relevance, even when scrolling down three pages. Not even a smidgen of relevance. this too has been the problem with finding my account's password since Firefox Lockwise took a hold of it. I dare you to prove me wrong.

Perhaps you should align yourself with the google or yahoo search companies.

When I save a photo to my desktop or folder from a page using Firefox, it does not display the photo Thumbnail, only the generic photo icon. A thumbnail does show when I download from another browser as Chrome, just not from Firefox. It must be a setting, but I can not find it. I had Firefox on a previous laptop and never had this problem. How can I get photo Thumbnails to display on photos downloaded from a page when using Firefox?

I just followed this instructions that given by jscher2000, in order to make things easier to search. I like this feature so much! But unfortunately, it's not supporting multiple keywords.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to YouTube home page 2. Right-click the search box and choose "Add a Keyword for this search" 3. Enter a random keyword like: "frfx" 4. Now we can use that keyword in the search bar. "frfr custom_keyword_here" (This is working well) 5. Go to YouTube search box again and add a new keyword: "frfx, you, tube" 6. Now, none of this will work anymore. Even "frfx"

Why this feature would be so great is that because we are human and we can forgot "things". Sometimes I make searches like these: i.e. "rd firefox" or "rdt firefox" or "reddit firefox". Don't you?

Thanks!

Your friendly Firefox user, since 3.0

Here's the original article: https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/501970-trump-tweets-spark-fresh-headache-for-republicans

This is what it looks like after "Print Preview" (the other pages are mostly blank):

I want to change the location of the temporary files corresponding to the web pages I visit. It seems to be called the cache.

Right now those files are saved in

   C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Temp\

but my C drive is a SSD and I don't want them to be there.

Note: In about:config, I created a string

   browser.cache.disk.parent_directory

and set its value to

   D:\Temp\Firefox_temp\

but to no avail: the temporary HTML pages are still created in C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Temp\.

My Foxfire Browser's drop down menu has a mind of it's own.

I use current Foxfire Browser (77.0.1) with Windows 10 and have been trying to clear useless items from the drop down menu for months. I have tried all the standard, 'highlight and delete' options on YOUTUBE and right here.

I must be asking the wrong questions, because the answers I am finding do not clear the items from Foxfire's drop down menu. None of the prescribed techniques cleared the sites from Foxfire's drop down menu.. Hard to understand what I am missing but my browser' is clearly NOT responding the way explained in answers I have found.

Example: There is a Search with Amazon.com site listed. I have NEVER used and it will not be cleared. No Matter what. Top item on FoxFire's drop down menu.

In desperation, I just tried clearing "all browsing history" 'and the annoying drop down sites are still there. 'In fact, now there are additional annoying sites from Facebook (have not been in 10 years) and twitter (I have Never been on twiter).

What is wrong with this browser ?

Can anyone help ? Please.

I decided to use Firefox, but I noticed some things that are missing.

1) Being able to color the favorites folders (at least set white, black or gray)

2) Black or gray background when I open a favorites folder (currently it's white)

3) Layout of folders open folders of favorites that adapt to the length of the name of the favorites

4) Ability to enter a different pin or master password, in order to access the passwords on mozilla firefox (if I leave my pc on, with firefox open, another person can go to the firefox settings and see all my messages in clear password.)

5) Incorrect display of GMail e-mail (a sliding bar appears in the center)

6) Ability to choose whether to scroll or decrease the tabs.

First of all, congratulations to everyone for the work done so far on Mozilla Firefox.

Ps: if you want I can post photos for every single point mentioned above.
