When opening pdf's attached to emails they used to automatically be opened by my pdf viewer software. Then they started opening in Firefox on another tab, which was fine. Now I first get an error message from firefox where I need to click on "open site in new window" it isn't a site but a pdf?? How do I get it to go back to opening with Adobe instead?

Thanks, Jeff

How to limit search to only useful pages

Hi,

There are two suggestions (or questions if I simply cannot find these): - as the default behaviour of the browser, I want to be able to only see websites from Europe. Somewhere on the net I found that the following address does it: https://www.google.com/webhp?cr=countryAT|countryBE|countryBG|countryHR|countryCY|countryCZ|countryDK|countryEE|countryFI|countryFR|countryDE|countryGR|countryHU|countryIE|countryIT|countryLV|countryLT|countryLU|countryMT|countryNL|countryPL|countryPT|countryRO|countrySK|countrySI|countryES|countrySE

However, when I am trying to use it in firefox as my Start Page, it opens all of these in separate tabs and it does not work. Also as far as I understand using the link is not possible for new tabs.

The reason is simple. For example, when looking for cooking recipes, pages from the USA use strange units that cannot be understood and there is no point in translating each of these manually as all recipes are available in million of versions - it is just a matter of clicks. But I don't want to waste time each time on checking the websites one by one; if the cooking website is from Europe, the units will be of a standard and I don't have to worry. It is the same in relation to many products of any kind. European and American markets are completely different and reading description of something only to find out at the end that it is only available in the USA is waste of time.

- it should be possible in firefox to block some websites or portals by some button. I know that there is an add-on for this but it is only for 10 pages or so, so in reality it is not very useful. It also only works in the way that the page won't open when clicked on. However, it would be much better if unwanted portals or websites were simply removed from search results.

There are too many fake websites nowadays providing incorrect or misleading information. If it happens that I come across one of these, I want to be doing that only once - and block them forever.

Hi guys, lately with one of the updates to firefox I've had something new crop up and I desperately want to get rid of it. When I save something from the internet to my computer there is a dropdown box that shows up from the downloads icon, which is on my address bar. (I'm assuming this is firefox and not windows.) It just annoys me and sometimes gets in the way. Help please?

I've got about 10 bookmarks with links to support pages each about adjusting specific about:config setting to my needs. My job also requires me to change systems lots of times, from Mac to windows to Linux. Is there an easy way I can save my personal about:config changes to a file for easy import on other systems?

Thanks

As per this issue I reported a while back, I was experiencing odd issue with automatic redirect to HTTPS for some private development sites.

I finally found a fix for the issue. The problem appears to be with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials Extension which apparently *may automatically redirect to the http site. In order to prevent this, I added my development sites to 'Unprotected Sites' and this prevented DuckDuckGo from doing the automatic redirect to https.

  • - Odd thing is that I had multiple domains pointing to the same web instance and only one of the domains was having this issue with the DDG extension. Both were going to the same IP through a HTTP proxy. The proxy and web server were not the issue. This symptom points to an maybe an issue in Firefox....

In summary, be wary of odd redirects and the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension if you are doing web development work.

In other 'apps' on windows 10 the tooltip is above the pointer or below it. In Firefox it is directly under the mouse. So usually any tooltip popup in firefox is unreadable, mostly. One can infer the content sometimes.

How do i change that? Or what is the problem?

I'll try and include a screenshot. Hmm, the screenshot didn't include the mouse. I think i can do a video with OBS and then a screenshot of that.

Interesting, somehow in the screenshot from the obs video it shows 2 mouse pointers. One is very small and the tooltip is just below that, but the other is larger (the one I see) and it covers the tooltip. I'm using the standard windows mouse settings for larger mouse pointers. I just tried using the 'old' mouse settings to select a larger mouse and it behaves the same way. If I select size: 1 in the new size settings, and the old settings i have 'windows system' mouse, then the tooltip is under the pointer but the size is too small for the pointer. I then changed to another mouse setting in the old selector "inverted extra large" and you can see the tooltip because of the 'inverted' nature of the pointer, but the tooltip is still partially covered by the pointer.

Ideally the choice would be to put the tooltip above the mouse pointer rather than below. When you increase the size of the mouse pointer it only increases down, not up. The point of the pointer is always at the top.

I'm going to try one more thing, increasing the size in the new settings after having selected "inverted", but i recall that it changes to the new pointer style. Ah, there is an inverted setting in the new options as well, and if i select that instead of the gray color i was using then one can read the tooltip through the mouse.

So, then my question becomes "can I put the tooltip above the mouse pointer?" Because it is still covered by the mouse pointer as is. I don't see anything in 'about:config', so far.

Thank you.

I have two computers (say A and B). I want to move the entire Bookmark toolbar from A to a folder in the Bookmark toolbar on B. This would allow me to selectively move folders and bookmarks from the A Bookmark toolbar upload to the toolbar on B. So far I cannot get the Import or Restore to upload to a single empty folder on the B bookmark toolbar.

I have tried to upload previously exported Html and Json files from A to a specific empty folder on B's bookmark tool bar but either the file overwrites the entire toolbar on B or nothing appears to happen.

I thought that by selecting a folder in the "Manage Bookmark" dialog box that the subsequent upload of either the Html or Json files would all go there but it does not appear to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Firefox,

A site I visited recently moved to another URL. Is there a way to edit my browser history so I can still be able to keep track of which pages I have visited?

For example:

if I have visited

https://site-old.com/topic1/page1.html https://site-old.com/topic1/page2.html

I want my browser history to also contain

https://site-new.com/topic1/page1.html https://site-new.com/topic1/page2.html

So I can see that I have already visited the page1 and page2 on topic1 as the link color would be purple

Would I be able to script something in a developer console and achieve that? Or would I need to program a plugin?

thanks!

I'm trying to create a DOS batch file to clear the current profile's cache (web site data only, not cookies). I have it working fine using a hard-coded path of the existing profile (I only have one profile), but I'd like it to remain viable in case a newer profile is created for whatever reason. Is there a way to retrieve the path into a variable?

Thank you!
