Whenever I open a new tab or window, I'm greeted with the Firefox home screen, which displays various shortcut tiles.

Currently, I have a shortcut for Amazon, which includes a handy blue magnifying glass symbol 🔎 indicating it's a search shortcut and not a shortcut that will take me to an URL. I'm looking to set up similar search shortcuts for YouTube and Google. I've attached an image below for reference.

If anyone is familiar with how to customize these search shortcuts in Firefox, your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any tips or steps to follow.

i'm currently writing my own firefox user.js configuration and now i'm at the topic "unloading inactive tabs" like microsoft edge does.

so what are the preferences for this kind of topic?

i want inactive tabs which have not been used for more than 5 minutes to be unloaded.

chatgpt gave me this "browser.tabs.unloadAfterDelay" preference but this one doesn't even exist in the about:config preferenes, would it still work if it doesn't even exist?

I'm currently developing a website that use user printer. And I'm looking for a hook that I can use to know user click the confirm or cancel in print dialog(or print preview window). the onafterprint method will trigger before user click confirm so I guess it's not an option.

Also, someone please tell me the topic describes my questions, I really don't know which topic is best for my question.

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.

Howdy,

I'm trying to lean away from Chrome on my Nexus 7 and use Firefox instead. I'm using Nightly now, which is a nice improvement, but I'm wondering if y'all have done much configuration with your setup.

One specific thing I'm wondering about is how to add DuckDuckGo as a search option.

And are there other addons available besides the ones on the official site?

Cheers!

I'm a newbe Thunderbird user making the transition from Outlook which I've used for years but recently discovered is too compromising especially when it comes to archiving. Have been using Mozilla for years on a Surface laptop (windows 11), Cyberpower desktop (windows 10), and Android Note 20. I've downloaded Thunderbird and it is working fine. Where can I find user training videos for Thundbird, especially archiving? Are there other ways besides on-line gifting in which I can contribute to the research that makes Mozilla and Thunderbird possible? Thank you.
