Hello Folks,

I have been using keyword searches setup as bookmarks since Netscape 4 and IE 3. Something like "g" -> google.com/search?query=%s. For some reason, Firefox will sometimes correctly return a search for "test" when typing "g test" but will often return a search for "g test". This is a fairly recent issue with a function that previously worked since the inception of the browser. Why is Firefox misunderstanding the semantics of my keyword search and how do I workaround this bug?

Thanks

I have Excel files stored in a Google shared folder. These are all macro enabled (.xlsm) files. When I attempt to download to my local drive using Firefox the file is changed from .xlsm to .xlsx resulting in all the VBA programs and functions inactive. This only happens with Firefox - current version is 84.0.2. Downloads using Chrome and Edge are OK.

Has anyone else experienced this and how can I fix this.

I have a question, that's actually pretty simple:

Is there any information from Firefox Relay about, if an alias is re-assigned to another user after they have been deleted by the first user? Or is Relay making sure, that every alias is only used once if deleted. Otherwise you could try and to recover services and passwords from other's peoples services after they got deleted.

thanks!

I decided to install firefox nightly on my windows 10 pro / 64-bit edition laptop early this morning because I already have it installed on two different computers with the exact same operating system installed. On those computers when I pin a desired site they remain there until I decide to manually unpin them. That's not the case with my installation here on my laptop, after having pinned a site the proper way & then going to a different site and upon returning to the original new tab page where I had previously pinned a desired site it no longer appears...why ? Thanks, David

After the google outage a week ago I can't get into any google site. I asked a friend that also uses firefox and they can access them just fine, I can enter normally with other browsers, too.

Here's a transcript of the error page, if it helps:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

The Firefox browser keeps closing my touch keyboard whenever I try to use it in the browser. Works just fine in any other application, not sure why Firefox is getting jumpy.

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

I'm using FF 84.0.2 64 bit on an HP laptop with Win 10. Recently, the Other Bookmarks link has installed itself permanently on the right side of my Bookmarks Toolbar. I can't tell you how badly I want it off of there. It takes up space and knocks off another bookmark that I use daily into the >>overflow section. I never use Other Bookmarks and really want to take it off of my Bookmarks Toolbar--like it used to be. If you must keep it, then leave it under the Bookmarks section of the Menu Bar. Please change this. I love FireFox, but this isn't a good change for me.
