Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

I have had a few problems ordering from sites (Adidas, Nike and another 1 or 2 I've forgotten) where I enter card details, get taken to the card verification page which then flips back to the basket page or the site's front page. I never get the order confirmation page or a confirmation email and the shops confirm no order has been made. I am really worried about this because I am putting in card info etc and it looks like it's going through but it doesn't. The pages are HTTPS. When I try on a different browser it works perfectly. It's quite frustrating because other sites are fine and I don't want to have to disable everything or use a different browser when I want to quickly buy something. The add ons I have installed are: Cookie Autodelete Facebook Container I Don't Care About Cookies UBlock Origin

I have standard tracking protection set in the options.

I understand the usual answer is to try disabling add ons one by one but to be honest I don't want to keep entering my card details to have to test it. Is there a better way to check what is causing the problem? Is this an issue with the sites or something to do with cookies/add ons?

Posted comments on a blog (specifically Mail Online Peter Hitchen' Blog) frequently, but not always, fail to appear. Moderation can be excluded on the evidence that repeating the same comment later will sometimes succeed. Other people are clearly affected since there are sometimes complaints. I have the impression that comments made during 'office hours' are more likely to get through, but this by no means guarantees success. The problem seems to have got worse lately, though it was occassionaly evident from the beginning (3 or 4 months ago when I started to contribute).

 This could of course be entirely the fault of the blog side of the intercourse, but is there anything I can do on the hither side, as a user of Firefox, to mitigate or solve this problem?

Neither using Firefox options nor settings in Windows 10 lets me select Firefox as my default browser. Firefox does not appear as an option when picking a default browser. Is there a workaround for this? Firefox is on my computer and I always use it. I just can't make it the default. I keep being prompted to make it my default, but attempts are unsuccessful.

Emotes dialog box and similar dialog boxes / pop-ups on Facebook and other forums are showing on top of the page instead of showing at the comment box they belong to after latest update

So I'm using Firefox Browser Developer edition.

Ever since it updated to version 80.0b1 (64-bit), the dialog kind of pop-ups or tooltips or however they're called, are not showing properly, on sites like Facebook and other forums I use.

As you can see in the image, if you're typing on the text field, when you click the Emote / Emoji button, the pop-up window should be shown right below the text field, however ever since the update, they appear at the top of the page, making it impossible to use if the post I'm commenting on is deeper in the page.

It's really annoying, and that's just an example, but there are many other dialog kind of windows that are behaving similarly.

Deactivating add-ons didn't help.

This wasn't a problem before the update. Is this gonna get fixed? What is affecting its proper behavior? I'd appreciate any help.

I am trying to have two accounts open in two different tabs for the same account (it's an investing account and a TFSA account from the same bank) but when I log into one account it logs me out of the other. Are there ways to keep account specific tabs somewhere in the user settings?

Hello When visiting Gumtree marketplace, none of the pictures for the adds display. I have tried a Firefox refresh, and the photos appear but disappear then disappear again if a new Firefox tab is opened or a new search within Gumtree is performed. The Firefox refresh does not appear permanent. I have cleared cache and cookies and this has had no effect. The Gumtree photos display if I revert to using a different browser. How can I refresh Firefox and keep the settings permanent? This problem has only manifested itself in the last two days.

Youtube sends me an error message whenewer I try to comment, so I can't comment, writing the comments or a text message on Facebook or Youtube reacts delayed to my keystrokes and my Youtube notifications load forever and I never get any notifications at all as well. I don't have the same issue with Chrome, I tried switching off every extension and getting my privacy and cookie settings to the least strict, nothing did the trick. The above issues don't present themselves on Chrome.

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?
