I have some fonts that I have installed through normal methods. They are all ttf files. However, they do not show up in the firefox change fonts dialog box. Even many pre-installed fonts do not show up. Websites are only able to use the local fonts listed in this dialog box. How will I then be able to use those fonts?

Hello. After reading numerous posts addressing similar issues & having no success, I've decided to post a question of my own. I am running the current version of firefox, 94.0.2. I use the Search Bar religiously for searches to sites like google, wikipedia, youtube, amazon, and ebay. I NEVER use the address bar for searches. I have attempted to disable all functionality associated with searching via the address bar. When I go to the address bar, it is because I have a specifc url I know I want to type with a specific destination in mind. Occasionally, I have a need to just go to the home page of one of my search sites, most often it's amazon.com. Recently (not sure which version of firefox) I've found when I go to the Address Bar & type amazon.com, I cannot just go to amazon.com, instead the address bar turns into a search bar. How do I disable this? Its driving me mad! I swear I've disabled every option I can within about:config related to urlb. Please Help. I don't want to switch to Chrome, but I'm tired of my settings getting messed up every time mozilla pushes a new version.

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.

I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

My firefox suddenly and without warning blocked my start page, the FVD speed-dial addon. I honestly do not care why it did, but how do I get my pages back? I mean I would have appreciated a warning so I can save my pages and links, FFS! And speed-dial also synchronizes these pages across my laptops and mobile, so I lost everything everywhere, because Firefox is an ass??? How do I get the addon back along with my pages and links?

And sure, I don't have to use Firefox if it behaves likes this, blocking my addons without a warning first!

Damn.

Opening Attachments and Frozen Tabs

Dear all,

I have the following two issues:

1) Tabs. I close tabs and then close Thunderbird. When I reopen Thunderbird the tabs which I had closed reappear. In fact if I open other tabs and then close Thunderbird and subsequently reopen Thunderbird these newly open tabs do not reappear. It seems to me that the tabs in Thunderbird have been frozen in place so that if I close any tabs the reappear next time I open Thunderbird and if I open a tab it does not reappear when I open Thunderbird next time.

What can I do so that the tabs which I open are not frozen there every time? I want the Calendar to be there all the time but also to be able to determine which tabs should remain closed and which should remain in place next time I open Thunderbird.

2) Attachments. In the past when there were attachments I needed to click on the paper clip, while highlighting the text "Show the attachment pane" and this would expand so that I could see all the attachments. Nowadays when I click it this opens the first attachment and the others remain inaccessible as I can no longer see them or at best only see them fleetingly.

What can I do to restore the ability to click and see all the attachments and then select which I open by double-clicking on it?

Thank you for your replies.

Kind regards, George Nielsen

For a long time I have not had the spell checker working on Firefox.

For example, in this text box as I type now, I have no spelling correction. If I right click I have no option to check spelling.

In settings - language, I have check spellings as you type ticked. In Add-ons, Manague Your language I have English (GB) Language pack installed

I have read everything I can, yet still can't get spellings enabled.

I can run the portable app version of firefox and spellings work for that, and a right click in a similar box to this gives me spelling options, so I know what it should look like.

I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Hi,

Yesterday Google just disappeared from the available search engines, I did not make any changes to the system as far as I'm aware of. I tried a complete reinstall of firefox (by apt purge and rm -rf ~/.mozilla and then reinstalled using apt) and also followed the instructions in this thread, which did not work for me: [https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questi.../1264497]

The Start Page add-on that I was using blocked with the following message. Because the add-on blocked without warning I can't access website links that I bookmarked within said add-on. I understand it was due to security reasons, but that doesn't recover my lost links.

"Speed Dial [FVD] New Tab Page, 3D Start Page, Sync has been blocked for your protection. Why was it blocked?

This add-on violates Mozilla's Add-on Policies.

This add-on violates Mozilla's policies as search functionality provided or loaded by the add-on must not collect search terms or intercept searches that are going to a third-party search provider. The add-on has repeatedly violated these terms despite Mozilla explicitly pointing them out. What does this mean?

The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.

When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.

Hello there,

I am switching to Thunderbird form the standard Mail from W10 and discovering lots of new features, but one thing that cannot seem to find is how to keep one old account I have (may junk mails but some useful too) out of the unified folders where my other accounts are (all of them imap). Right now I check it through the web browser but may be I can have it separated in thunderbird too.
