Why do nightly updates lead to a change in my default Search Engine? After every update, all my searches (address bar and search bar) are done via the default search engine (Yahoo). I do not want this. For the 5th time I have changed it to my preferred site. The OneClick search preference is not changed - and here the Default Search Enginge is not even selected as an option.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

To outline my setup, I am using Windows 7 Ultimate with Service pack 1. I tried applying a third-party theme to Windows 7 Ultimate, but it didn't work right. So, I reset Windows theme. Then, I tried applying a theme to Firefox itself and it works except for the "x", "minimize", and "maximize" buttons. What is going wrong? It may be a minor problem, but I like things to work right.

I installed a number of privacy addons and they’re giving me nothing but grief. NOW I CAN’T GET RID OF THEM BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO UNINSTALL! I can’t use search by image on Reddit because of these confounded privacy apps. I’m very close to giving up on Firefox for Android. I thought if I logged into my Firefox Account I might at least be able to uninstall these apps, but no. If I can’t get Firefox Android to stop interfering with Reddit I will give up and uninstall Firefox. Please explain where exactly I REMOVE ANY AND ALL ADDONS.

With Firefox 86 it is no more possible to use a search keyword in the urlbar with an empty query string to open the corresponing web page. E.g. I type "g" for Google followed by <space> and the urlbar notices I want to perform a Google search. But pressing <enter> has no effect until I actually enter a string (other than whitespace) to search for. In previous version it was possible to just search for nothing to open the search page (like a shortcut to the search web page).

In Firefox 83, the old behaviour could still be restored by setting browser.urlbar.update2=false. This doesn't work anymore since version 86.

Is there a possibility to get the old behaviour back?

I am trying to make Mozilla Firefox open all pdfs from Firefox in Adobe without prompting the users about whether they want to save or open.

I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 on a MacMini (late 2018) with 64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 and Firefox v86.0 64-bit.

I need to disable Command+D that's currently used to "Bookmark This Page".

I need Command+D for another use.

I've searched about:config for "bookmark" and get a lot of hits, but I can't tell which one controls the setting for Command+D.

Or . . . am I barking up the wrong tree?

I want to disable Command+D.

Leaving the ability to mouse up and click Bookmarks > "Bookmark This Page" is ok.

I just need to disable the keyboard shortcut Command+D for "Bookmark This Page".

Anyone got a "howto" for this?

Thanks!

Each of my email account has their own order for the columns in Inbox, Draft, Sent .... e.g. "Sender / Subject/ Date/ Size .... Now when I go from one folder to another, say from Sent to Junk the order and the actual columns change back to some other order e.g.. Thread/Star/Subject/Read/Date/ they are not permanent. I tried Safe Mode but my newly sorted columns still switch back to another (random?) order.

At times I would like to search for an add-on that I can not "Phrase" the description of as such:

'I am looking for an addon that will download every page I visit for a predetermined time automatically and make those downloaded pages accessible to the open tabs from which those downloads came from so that I can have the cache on hard drive"

I don't know how to call this thing by a search term and need help with this one question really.

I would have other question also such as how to build an add-on.

Is there a forum specifically related to these add-ons only This forum should be specific to the types of add-on we see in Firefox and Google Chrome for developers and enthisiasts.

I see no link to such a forum in the addons page though there is the link to Manage add-ons; or, is this the best place for such questions?

Thanks in advance!

The response is the same regardless or whether I enter google.com as server URL. What am I missing?

There used to be a menu option to open the current tab in app via "open in app". For example, I could find a link to reddit, and then select that menu option to open the current tab to a reddit client app.

With the menu option gone, I'm unable to open links that are supported in other apps. The option to "open in apps" in the settings don't work either.

Is there a setting that I'm missing to get the menu option back?

Two days ago I installed Thunderbird for the first time and so far I like it very much. Today I discovered that some functions on my keyboard are out of order. These problems include the inability to type the symbols on top of the number-keys and the PrtSc key ( which I use often). I'm a novice computer user so they may be additional problems. Could you please help me resolve these problems with my keyboard? As one with little knowledge of computers, I know that my problems would go away if I uninstall Thunderbird, which I love so far. Could you guide me gently (In simple terms) of how I can resolve, myself, any conflicts that Thunderbird keyboard shortcuts have with the actual use of the keys on my key board. I thank you in advance, since this support forum helped me a lot already, Dimitri

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Hi. Yesterday, I browsed thru my Firefox and/or GMail settings, and removed headers and footers from my printed copies of emails and web pages. Which is fine. However, at the same time I must have mistakenly changed a setting so that my print-ready version of an email or web page always displays in B & W, not in color. Although it will print in color, depending on how I have my HP printer set. How can I change that back so the print-ready Print Preview copy displays pics, etc. in color? I forgot what I did. Aarrgh! Please help! Thanks. John Darin
