FIREFOX 75 UPDATE: How to change internet address bar dropdown to display most visited sites?

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update? I only see 6 results when I had it set to about 20 before.

I have gone to browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and changed that setting to False thinking that would help but all that has done is eliminated the entire drop-down list altogether when the address bar is clicked.

I checked my browsing privacy options in the settings menu within Firefox and it appears everything remains exactly as before, prior to update. Maybe there is some special combo of settings and about:config options that can bring the drop-down menu back that I enjoyed so much prior to update version 75.

Any recommendations?

Running a fairly new iMac on latest OSX Catalina 10.15.5

I have had this for a while and had numerous suggestions on this forum all of which require a lot of messing about and non of them have worked.

I have 68.6.0 and now we are up to 68.10.0. Whenever I am offered an update it goes through the motions, fails and the says to download a fresh copy. If I do this and open new version and select my existing profile I get all the emails, no folders and no address book, and if you quit from dock or restart it wants to install from scractch every time.

In the past if you updated to a newer version or even further back you download a new version it asked if you wanted to replace your existing version.

Now it just does not play ball.

What I fail to understand is how something that worked perfectly for 17 with no major problems cannot be simply updated.

What has caused this behaviour and why can't the update just work as it always has before?

I followed all steps to copy Thunderbird profiles successfully to a new Thunderbird downloaded on a new computer. All email accounts, old settings, and folders (very large, 16.9g) are all in the left pane after I launched the new Thunderbird.

However, many folders in Chinese characters are duplicate, and do not show anything inside the folders. I have transferred the profiles to a new computer many times in the past 10 years, and I have been always successful without any problem using the same method to transfer from one computer Thunderbird to a new computer Thunderbird. But, this is the first time I encounter this problem - duplicate folders than contain nothing inside. I first downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird (68.10). It happened. Then, I thought I should try an older version (60), which is my old computer using Thunderbird 6.0. But it has the same duplicate folders that contains nothing or do not show up anything inside.

I searched in the support articles and discussions on Thunderbird. I tried to delete all MSF files in the folders, which took a long time to do, and restarted the Thunderbird. But, it still does not work. I tried to delete the duplicate folders, in many ways, but it did not allow me to delete. When I click on any folder in Chinese characters, it just has no response, blank in the folders, and it shows no files previously saved. But, if I click on the folders in English, they are working, and all messages saved show up.

I need all those folders which I saved for over 20 years on my teaching and research position. I have been perplexed and frustrated as I have tried to remove and reinstall Thunderbird and transfer data over 10 times in the past few days, spent days by days on this task without finding a solution. I think the only way now is to find an expert who knows the Thunderbird well to help me. I am even willing and happy to pay the service and work provided by any Thunderbird expert, so I can resolve the problem to get these folders work. All folders and sub-folders inside contain a lot of messages.

The strange thing that has puzzled me is that all folders and sub-folders in English work fine, and has messages, but those folders and sub-folders in Chinese language are all duplicate and contain no message inside. Please see the pictures attached for your reference. Can anyone kindly help me? Please do email me and alert me when someone would kindly offer help, and email me: sguo@sfsu.edu Thanks very much!

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

When I select "Show your Bookmarks (Crtl+Shift+H)" buy just clicking the icon, the main bookmark menu opens. I can move the cursor down the list. But if I try to use the scroll wheel, as soon as the wheel moves, the bookmark menu list closes (disappears).

I like the small size of this particular mouse since this is my travel laptop.

I have tried all the Logitech SetPoint software mouse option with no luck.

Is there any appropriate about:config option that would affect the bookmark menu list?

I have nine email accounts configured in Thunderbird. For some accounts, when I Reply the reply message uses the correct From email address, i.e., the email address to which the incoming email was addressed. For other accounts, the reply message From field is evidently a default email address that is configured somewhere in Thunderbird.

How can I configure Thunderbird to consistently use the address to which incoming email is sent in the From email address of a reply?

Thanks.

Firefox 78.0.1 does not remove closed pages from memory - lags and high RAM usage

After updating from 77 (I think it was 77.0.2?) to 78.0.1 I started noticing terrible firefox performance after a few minutes of browsing. My standard browsing habit consists of launching browser with 1 pinned tab and 1 home page (so 2 tabs only), then opening 5-10 tabs from my bookmarks, checking pages then closing them and leaving only 1 pinned page open. In firefox 78.0.1 after doing this (opening and then closing multiple tabs "to the right" using new context menu added in 78) my ram usage does not drop. It goes from 2.4GB (system only usage) to 5.0GB and does not drop after closing tabs. However when I open 10-20 tabs again RAM usage does not rise (maybe slightly, like 5.3GB). So it looks like firefox has multiple tabs stored in ram and opening new tabs just rewrites that memory instead of allocating new one. I have 8GB of ram so 3GB of usage from 1 open tab is crazy. I think it was 500-900MB before. I also have terrible lags because of this - browser hangs up every few seconds for few seconds. I had trouble writing this post with 2 tabs open because of 3.3GB ram usage! Restarting browser helps - ram uasge rises from 2.4GB to 3.2GB only (800MB for 2 tabs) but every new opened and closed tab seems to stay in memory. For example if I open 10 more tabs except for 2 that always open so I have 12 tabs I have 3.6GB memory usage. After I close them it slowly drops to 3.5GB instead of returning to 3.2GB. It does not matter how I close tabs - using right click context menu (close other tabs, close tabs to the right), using X on tabs, or using add-on to close all tabs except for pinned ones. They always remain in memory somehow. PLS fix this ASAP.

P.S. I also tried checking about:performance menu but there is nothing interesting here. It says that 2 opened tabs and addons use 100MB of memory which is not true because browser at this moment uses 1060MB.

Update 1: I also tested safe mode. 3,4GB of PC RAM usage on firefox safe mode start. Opened few tabs, ram usage goes to 4.2GB. After closing all tabs except for 1 ram usage start to SLOWLY decrease but it stops at 3,7GB. Ram usage drop was really slow like 10-30 seconds. It should be instant after closing tabs.

Hello everyone,

Since Firefox does not save my downloads in my phone, it does in his own category of "Download" inside of the browser. But, my problem is: yesterday, I have been deleted some files that I have downloaded from it and without wanting I select "Delete all" and all was deleted inmediately.

My question is: Is there any option to recover all the files (mostly pdfs, word)that I download inside Firefox?


Hola a todos e todas,

Desde que Firefox no guarda las descargas fuera de su aplicación, lo hace en su apartado propio de "Descargas" que está dentro del propio Firefox. Mi problema es: ayer, estuve eliminando algunos archivos que he bajado desde Firefox y sin darme cuenta seleccioné "Eliminar todos" y se eliminaron. Mi pregunta es: Hay algún tipo de opción/programa/hack para poder recuperar todos eses archivos (mayoritariamente pdfs, word...) que están dentro de las descargas de Firefox?

Out of all the hundreds of websites I regularly visit each week, two websites flag the exact same security warning on Zone Alarm every single time I visit them, and I have never gotten this warning anywhere else at any other website. I am already aware these two websites are not to be trusted so I suspect they have engineered something to compromise the Firefox web browser. Zone Alarm pops up a warning that "Firefox is attempting to monitor user activities on this computer. If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, websites visited, and other user behaviors." A screen-cap of the Zone Alarm warning is attached. I deny this action in Zone Alarm every time it happens. Let me again emphasis this happens nowhere else, only at these two sketchy websites I occasionally visit and it happens every single time I go there and my concern is that they have embedded something in their webpages compromising the Firefox web browser.

The new design of Reader View has two problems:

  1. Given that this feature is particularly important for those with eyesight problems or other disabilities, it seems like a bad move to have made the buttons smaller.
  1. The buttons used to be on the left-hand side of the window, but now they're directly to the left of the page text. This means that the pop-out controls for the Listen button now overlap the text. So if I want to be able to read the text at the same time as listening to the TTS, I have to click a second time on the Listen button to hide the pop-up. Then I have to click on it for a third time if I want to stop the TTS.
