You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

'Open links in new tab' and 'When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately' settings do not work, even in safe mode. I'm on Version 96.0.2.

Changing these settings manually also does not solve the issue, tabs still open in the current window:

browser.search.openintab and make sure its value is set to true.

browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs set to true.

Only thing that works for this function is CTRL + Click. Shouldn't these settings work if applied?

Thanks.

I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.

Hello,

I am using Thunderbird on both Linux and Windows and ran into the same problem on both OS after installing updating to Version 91.5.0.

Under preferences I have "Always ask" enabled for PDF-Files because I want to be able to choose the action depending on the document. I have the same config for Docx-Files.

When I click on a pdf - it opens a promt where I am asked what I want to do with the document - "Open with" or "Save" and no option is pre-selected. If I then press enter, nothing happens. I have to manually click on one of the two options and then press enter or "OK" to confirm the action.

With docx for example, it works perfectly. I get the same prompt but "Save File" is pre-selected. I can press enter and another prompt about the saving location opens.

I am guessing this is a bug since I only found this issue with Pdf-Files but if it is not, please let me know where to configure this option so it auto-selects "Save File" in the prompt.

Thanks in advance for any answer!

Hello, Can someone please tell me how to stop my "search bar" text from also showing up in my "address bar"? I have search the internet and found all of the following ways that have been suggested that have not worked.

I read that I should set the following to "false" to solve my problem.

1) keyword.enabled 2) browser.fixup.alternate.enabled 3) browser.urlbar.suggest.surches

I have also gone into the settings menu and un-checked everything I could find about suggestions or words or anything else being added to the address bar. The only thing that should show up in and address bar is................you guessed it: AN ADDRESS!  :-) Thanks so much for your help.

I really appreciate the help. Mark

Hello,

Everything was fine with TB and a few months ago i could no longer add a new folder. I upgraded to the latest version and it did not solve my problem. I disliked ver.78 so much i went back to 68.12.1 32bit. Not sure why 32 since my computer is a 64bit windows 7.

Anyway, I have seven email accounts in TB. Personal, multiple businesses plus my junk account. I can create folders in all of the accounts except my main personal account. The main account does have a lot of folders and sub folders already. Also, For some reason 2018,19,20 tax return folders are now in the archive folder and not "tax return" folder.

All other 6 email accounts are acting as normal. Noting missing, can create and delete folders as always.

I have read countless post/forums and can not isolate this problem.

Thanks in advance, Chris

I'm having a really hard time trying to put proper terms into my request. Please bear with me.

I believe it's a version or two ago that Firefox started imposing an arbitrary limit on how long I could explore in a pulldown bookmarks menu before it disappeared. I believe that earlier this wasn't the case: that once I was searching around among bookmarks they would be available to me to mouse around in for as long as I needed. Now they self-retract after a few seconds.

Is there a hidden pref to remove or greatly increase the time before the automatic withdrawal of bookmark menus while in use occurs?

I hope I'm being clear about this. I'm sure my terminology is less than accurate.

Thanks
