Every time I right click and select "Open Link in New Tab" Firefox is not opening this new tab next to the current tab. It instead moves this new tap to the end of all the tabs (of the current website). This is an annoying behavior, I have to go all the way to the end of the tabs to look at the name page that I just opened. How do I fix this behavior?

How can I get rid of an automatic fill of websites visited. When I go to the address bar and type in an address, I want to get rid of a website as I have no interest in having that automatically show up on my address web sites.

So, I apprehend how this works presently (or until recently) with Firefox for Android solid cut back to approximately a dozen extensions (provide or take) and first of all broader extension get right of entry to being to be had in forks like Iceraven and, ultimately, if you understand the name of the game code and have a Mozilla account, Firefox Nightly and Firefox Beta.

But, i have examine that this is converting to in which in preference to the prevailing "integrated" extension Firefox for Android extension library that become heavily limited on Firefox solid, it'll be replaced with the aid of an AMO library open to submissions in the same way pre-version sixty nine Firefox for Android, and present day Firefox for home windows are, with Android variations of extension on the identical AMO pages as their desktop opposite numbers, for the ones computer developers who additionally need an Android model.

I have a few questions, which maybe other human beings have too, inclusive of:

- Which model is this anticipated to fully land in nightly and beta? Approximate date?

- Which version is this expect to fully land in strong? Approximate date?

- Will all present day extensions with new extension versions stick round in every user's installations with a continuing upgrade, or will human beings should reinstall extensions manually after changeover?

- If the extensions deliver over automatically, what happens to people upgrading from, say, simply for instance, modern-day Android uBlock beginning to new extension fashion uBlock foundation past the obvious? Will the settings and customizations to such things as filters and filter listing be ported over much like a ordinary software program improve, or does the exchange in codecs make that a non-starter and revert to a popular new installation uBO? I ask because if extension settings do not bring over, humans should recognise to be able to backup what they could (and, if a backup mechanism isn't always supplied by means of an extension, the give up user could optionally take screenshots or notes before the current model goes away to get it returned doing things the manner the cease person would really like after) and reimport it to the new edition, if they care about such matters enough to do it.

- What occurs to the modern Firefox for Android extensions, both those covered on solid and the numerous more that are not, but that humans access thru forks and non-solid versions of Firefox? Is this strictly a one system at a time component, in which the handiest system disappears whilst solid is going live with support for the new style extensions, or might both upload-on systems exist side via aspect for some time thereafter?

In my "Themes" section viewing the add-ons manager, I can view all the themes I have downloaded, and I would really like to disable the recommendations. They are not relevant to me, and they take up space and are a distraction from those I am interested in. Is there a way to disable the "Recommended Themes" section???

Every time I open anew a page it invariable displays the page somewhere mid-way down requiring me to scroll up to the top (if page is large enough to warrant a scroll). I'd prefer every page open at the top at all times. Is there any switch in the configuration editor that would allow for this?

Dear Anyone.

So I got ransomwared awhile back - the AZQT one - and managed to get out of it with copious use of backups! Thing IS - it's left my Outlook/Hotmail E_mail page in Russian - and I can't select 'change to English' because all the sub-menus are in Russian and I don't know what to click on!

Now when I first load up the page, I get a lovely-looking little box 'Firefox has detected this page is in Russian, would you like to translate to English' (or words to that effect, y'know.) But the box appears and disappears so fast I don't have time to click on it. I managed to get to it a couple of times and it worked perfectly. But normally it vanishes before I can get there.

How do I make the little box stick around longer so I can click on it? Or is the same option hidden in a Firefox menu somewhere - I'm not the world's greatest Internet browser geek, so please keep answers simple! - and I could click on it in a Firefox menu? Like I said - if I GET to it in time, it works like a dream. It's just GETTING to it fast enough before it vanishes that's the problem!

Just ad an 'orrible thought. I hope that if it's in a Firefox menu, that's not been turned into Russian too!

Yours respectfully

Chris.
