Hello,

When I visit any website, normally I would expect to be stored in crt+H (history) TAB. Yet, after visiting the website, it does not show up there.

Only after a few hours the visited website will show up in the history tab.

PS: This happens on the same device, the sync option between them works fine. After the few hours have passed and the websites have shown in the original computer, they will instantly sync across all other devices. And yes, I have checked the setting from top to bottom.

Any ideas how to deal with this or am I the only one with this problem?

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?

Good day,

since yesterday the Evenote Web Clipper stopped working. When reinstalling the web clipper I get the regular screen:

"Welcome to Evernote Web Clipper!" where you have to confirm to enable web clipper. When clicking on "Allow" nothing happens. At the same time occasionally I got the message the Firefox was not directed to Evernote in teh right way.

What have I tried thus far - without positive outcome: - disabling and then enabling the web clipper in Firefox preferences - deleting and re-installing the web clipper - deleting Firefox, re-install Firefox and then re-install the web clipper

The web clipper is functioning fine under Safari.

May it be that the change of privacy policy by Evernote (dus May 15) has something to do with it ?

Thank you for your suggestions !


Best regards, René.

I just purchased a new laptop. I have copied my Address Books and all my Calendars to my new laptop. I was able to point my Thunderbird mail accounts to the mail folders I copied to the new laptop, but I do not see anywhere that I can tell Thunderbird to point the Address Books or the Calendars to a particular folder.

How do I change the default locations for the Address Books and Calendars?

Thanks, Lew

I'm a user slowly trying to wean off of Chrome and getting accustomed to Firefox as a new primary browser. Something that I've relied on quite heavily in the past was the use of the address bar's autocomplete function to get me to frequently used websites - in this case, the Subscriptions page from YouTube. I have attempted to fiddle with the options available to me, but it seems that no matter what I do on this browser, I am unable to have said page show up when I type in "y" - instead, the homepage for YouTube is the first thing to show up, which I explicitly do not want. I cannot permanently remove this by way of pressing Shift + Del, as it always reappears. I am positive that I have visited the target page (Subscriptions) enough that it should show up as the top result, and I am also positive that I have not visited the YouTube homepage, as I intentionally remove it from my browsing history if I ever accidentally access it. I have tried turning on/off different combinations of settings in the Address Bar options menu under Browser Privacy, I have attempted bookmarking the page to have it rise to the top of the search settings, and I have attempted the use of an add-on which blocks websites from appearing in search results (which unfortunately did not extend to the search results directly from the address bar).

I am grateful that this minor irritant is one of my only outstanding gripes with the browser at the moment, though nevertheless, I would like to know if there is any way to further customize the address bar dropdown results to prioritize websites I have actually accessed before over their root domain.

Thank you for your assistance.

To whom who can help,

I am attempting to hard code the homepage for Mozilla Firefox so that it opens only a specific page when Mozilla is started. I am aware with how to achieve this by going into the Mozilla settings in the browser, however id like to make this change on a deep configuration level so that it cannot be changed by end users.

I have achieved success with doing it on Google Chrome using a "master preferences" file which was imported into Google Chrome's program files folder and I would like to know if anyone can help me achieve the same with Mozilla. Our end goal is to put this working solution on an image and distribute new computers with pre configured Mozilla settings unchangeable by the end user.

Also, just as background, I have attempted to google the solution or see if there were any configuration files out there I could alter to my liking but I haven't been able to find any.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It would be nice to not have the little resize grabber icon/control in the bottom right corner of the screen when in Responsive Design Mode as it shows in screen shots. It doesn't seem like it is possible to hide it or have it not show in screen shots. Is there a way? If so, how? If not, what is the best way to get a feature request in front of Moz devs?

I am pretty sure I'm the only person in the whole world with this problem because I couldn't find this issue in any search engines including Google.

I used that online site (I forgot name) to make a new Firefox theme (just fiddled around colours, images etc), but didn't commit and closed Firefox and forgot about it. Now everytime I open Firefox, that same theme takes over whatever theme I have selected or the default theme. I can change to other themes fine but when Firefox restarts, it reverts back to that theme. I don't understand why something I didn't even save is taking control like this. I don't want to delete/reset profile or re-install Firefox.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

When I sort by subject and I first click "Subject" I get A->Z ordering which is fine. Second click makes Z->A. Fine

Date should work differently because the most relevant emails are the latest. So, starting from sorting made in another column, the first click on "Date" should order by most recent first.

That is the normal behavior for email applications (see Outlook). NOTE: I'm not suggesting to change the behavior to just copy someone else software but really because it's more logic (and honestly a bit frustrating as it is now).

Thank you

I really like the global search feature and use it often. I also have maybe 20-25 saved searches that run automatically.

The problem that I'm having is that while you can specify many parameters in a search and choose from many types (From, To, Has Attachments, Date on/after/before, body contents, etc.), you can only AND all the parameters or OR them all. For ideal function on some of my searches I'd need A && B && (C || D), for example, but there's no way to indicate that.

I thought a workaround might be to create one saved search with all the ANDs and point a second saved search at that one using the ORs, but I can't point one search at another.

Is there a way to do this? Is there a search plugin with more flexibility on the search definition, and if so, can it create saved searches?
