I would like to open my history page and select an entry and open in it a new tab and the history page to remain open.

It is annoying that the history page closes automatically after the user opens a selected entry. Because I often view history trying to find a previous tab and typically don't find it first go, but then have to reopen history :(

Is it possible to change that behaviour?

How do I remove this crap tab list? I don't want that option, Firefox just updated and added it as a fixed function. Honestly it seems that the Firefox development team does not care about the interests of users, currently I need to use 2 browsers because one of them does not have an option to create shortcuts to the sites I frequent

Hi, thanks a lot in advance and sorry to bother. :)

I have a couple of desktop/laptop devices synced with the same account. When I make a backup/export of my bookmarks in each device (.json/.html files) the checksums of those files don't coincide between devices. Nevertheless, if I open the exported HTMLs in Firefox and save them as Text Files, the resultant files have all the same checksum (sha256sum), i.e., are all the same.

Is this how it is supposed to be? Or should my bookmarks JSON/HTML files be exactly the same in all devices and something is wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

As of this evening, Firefox for Android no longer opens links from webpages. This was working just fine yesterday, but any attempt to solve the issue has resulted in failure.

  • I can still open links manually by copy-pasting them into a new tab.
  • I have tried disabling all add-ons, to no effect.
  • I discovered this through my regular browsing, but I have also tested a random Google search page, as well as various links in Mozilla Support.
  • Javascript appears to be unaffected.

Current version is Firefox for Android 106.1.0.

I am using pihole and i've learned that firefox ignores it.

Supposedly, because it has DNS OVER HTTPS enabled by default.

So i disabled it, and it still doesn't work ( ignores DNS settings and loads websites that are blacklisted in my pihole - only firefox does this, chrome and edge dont have this problem )

I've set it to my pihole server - and it still works.

I've set it to CUSTOM and put in a 0.0.0.0 as IP and IT STILL WORKS

how???

i am just trying to use pihole but i can't comprehend why would a browser ignore all these settings ...

how do i make it work?

thanks.

I've now installed Firefox several times including at least one clean install. I've worked through all the support pages on how to fix the problem, including system scan using MalwareBytes, and removing extensions, but the problem persists.

To be more precise, sometimes it just crashes immediately leaving the notices shown in the image. Sometimes it opens and stays for a while but then crashes with a similar notice.

Crash reports:

bp-945b32f1-96b3-4233-ba19-03c310221026 26/10/2022, 12:02 bp-2af09469-4ba1-4531-8406-5e0f70221026 26/10/2022, 12:02 bp-d7d56904-ca94-4397-812d-a39260221026 26/10/2022, 09:55 bp-7e88f783-318e-4401-b825-89a810221024 24/10/2022, 18:50

Hope someone can help.

I set my browser theme to a customized green theme I made myself with firefox color, then I decided I wanted something different and installed a new theme from the addons page. It works until I close firefox, but if I open it again it changes back to the custom one I made? I can't find any settings that fix this and i don't want to delete the custom themes I made just to be able to use one of the addon themes I have saved.

bookmarks text white on white

Firefox updated to 106.0.2 (64-bit). When I click the sidebar icon, my bookmarks appear on the browser's left side as expected. However the text is not visible. If I hover my mouse over an icon is the list for a bookmark, the link appears. Also not all the bookmark icons appear. There are gaps between bookmarks on the list. Again, I have to hover my mouse over those gaps for bookmark info to appear. How do I make my bookmark list readable/usable again?

If I key a search term into the browser bar and hit enter it begins searching. About 95% of the time nothing happens. No message. I just notice the 'x' to stop the search is gone, and a 'retry' circle replaces it.

This has been going on for months. I have used firefox for years. I have renewed it, replaced it, removed all addons, accepted updates usually each day. stopped accepting updates. Refreshing, renewing, seems to help for a couple minutes. Deleting all history helped...maybe. I am on satellite internet. Also use chrome. Most of the time now, After I key a query in firefox, I switch to chrome and do the same query while waiting. Chrome works. Just doesn't have all my passwords and sites yet.

I am on windows 7 home premium. I have an AMD FX 6100 6-core CPU running at 3.3 Ghz. I have 8 gigs of RAM. I am not overclocking. I use Avast antivirus. A few months ago I bought the avast cleanup tool which was a massive mistake, I had already done all the things it wanted to try, it is just a nuisance. In settings, I have a message that says firefox is managed by my organization. I wish I could get rid of that. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks in advance.

I have made two Complaints to Google!! I explained in Detail that i have Stopped the many Google Play Store Permisions and why? I installed Google Go and gave the App all the Permissions it asks for! I downloaded it from Google Play! Their own site! I was amazed to see a question Do Not Use This For Search? Then i changed search engines as Google were Emailing me Non Stop! So i put focus as my Default Browser and they would not let me Backup my Phone but i have a 2nd email even though my main email for 35yrs is the same? Then if i dont give Permissions to Google Play Wallet wont work and on it goes! Its Blackmail pure and simple i never asked for thd App to begin with? Do i change everything back??

I have just updated Firefox to 106.0.4 (64-bit), the latest version. The first issue was that all my add-ons and extensions were disabled, and I had to manually re-enable all of them.

The next issue is that I cannot now minimise Firefox. I have tried the published fix - Go to the menu, then "More Tools" then "Customise Toolbar" and finally untick the "Title bar" on the lower left side. This has no effect.

Can anyone suggest another fix? I am using Windows 11 (not yet updated to 2022 H2 - am waiting for this to become stable).
