I'm using Firefox since 6 years and I don't see a shortcuts customize page.

I love you're app and I can't tell myself that you haven't turned on this feature.

SO WHERE IS SHE ???

(I do this post because I add the extension "Multi Account Container" and they add the shortcut CMD SHIFT + to open new Personal Container. But I use CMD SHIFT + to zoom on my window, so when I want zoom he open new tab.)

Thanks you

The latest is I can't search from the search bar with a new tab. This is after doing a migration. I erased Firefox and reinstalled the app and all of my data was still there. I reopened the session as if I had just closed a session and I was logged into gmail. So clearly Mozilla's instructions on deleting the app on MAC doesn't work. Recycle bin. How do you literally delete the app?

Hoping deletion will solve the issue of not being able to hit enter in the search bar to perform a google search, or click the arrow. Nothing works.

Further, I'm logged into this browser, yet when the tabs disappear I can't reaccess them. What's the point of logging into a browser if it doesn't remember the tabs?

Hi everybody,

Is there a way to force a website to always open in a designated container?

E.g.: I would like Netflix (and other websites that use Widevine) to always use their own container for privacy reasons.

Thank you all for your support.

After the last release, common stream platforms are struggling to properly play video. Firstly it started while I was navigating over other tabs while listening to the audio of a youtube video for example, and the stuttering stopped for a while when I selected the video tab. But now it seems that nothing fixes this bug, as I already tried reinstalling it at least 4 times, with or without addons. Currently I'm using the Windows version running on a Windows 10, Ryzen 5 3600, 32GB RAM and Rx580 video card machine, and I don't see the problem occurring on the Linux Mint version that runs in the same machine. I need some help because this stuttering/lagging is making work on a single machine quite frustrating.

Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

I had a thing happen that surprised me:

  1. Open private window
  2. Download a file (slow enough to give time for testing)
  3. Open "Downloads" (becomes a tab in private mode, filling the main browser window)
  4. Close any other private tabs
  5. Close "Downloads" tab
  6. Downloads are terminated without query

My expectation was that the user would be queried in some way.

This might be a stupid question and I'm shocked that I noticed this only now as a long time Firefox user... If I use the location bar to search for something Firefox opens the Google result page, but disables the "back"-button. So I can't get back to the page I've been visiting before. I've been wondering for a long time why sometimes clicking back doesn't lead me back to a page I know I was visiting earlier, now I finally figured out that this is because I was using the search from location bar. So my question: Is this the normal behavior or a bug in my installation? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

when i choose show your bookmarks i have the correct list and favicons as i had in previous versions of firefox ,im using the light theme and its applicable to all themes,so here is the issue..moving your mouse pointer over the selected bookmark use to give it a dark blue highlight and any bookmark you chose would highlight like this,now i have no highlight on placing the cursor over it,just a text box in mono showing the url this seems a bit vague when moving over several bookmarks and none is highlighted.ive recently moved to windows 10 pro and was clean install and up to date with a new profile on firefox .only the bookmarks were a html file imported from a usb stick so cant see that being an issue. firefox is also up to date with adblocker ultimate as the only addon.

Hi. I enjoy using Firefox and support Mozilla, but I am fast starting to lose patience. I do not use Google and try to avoid anything to do with it. I set Duckduckgo as my browser and remove Google from the list of search engines. Every time Firefox updates, I find that my settings are changed without my knowledge and my search engine defaults to b***** Google! Then I have to waste time changing settings again. Can I stop this from happening or do I just have to move away from Firefox? Thanks a lot. Des
