Yesterday an IT guy from my job did some work on my computer to reinstall my document camera (I'm a teacher) which wasn't working for some reason. After he finished, I noticed that my bookmark toolbar is no longer visible on my browser. I cannot find anything selected that would remove it. Any idea why that would be?

I currently have the latest version of Firefox which I recently changed to. On previous versions it used to be possible by changing certain settings in about:config to make Firefox keep history longer than the default. I searched "history" though and I can't find that particular setting. It's really important for my business that Firefox doesn't delete my history. My system is able to support a larger history file. Thanks.

Following the last Firefox update I have the following problem. Daily emails from ebay for searches appear correctly, but when I click on an item to get full details the screen is corrupted and it is impossible to place an order. The problem does not happen using MS Edge. Can I revert to previous version whilst this is fixed or do I use Edge in future and forget Firefox? Thank you

I have mainly switched and using firefox due to its ease of use "multiple search engine". It's been a couple of years, however I'm still unable to figure out how

Text to url Text to text works?

I mean let's say i'm gonna search "firefox now requires double click to switch search engines"

Text to url becomes like this- https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=firefox%20now%20requires%20double%20click%20to%20switch%20search%20engines


And text to text becomes like this- firefox now requires double click to switch search engines

Main point: In case of "text to url", search engine has processed and showed result. I click "search bar" and can copy url.

However I'm not sure how text to text works.....many times I immediately click search bar after clciking Enter or Go and the search text stays as it is.

Hi there,

Every time I log in to gmail.com I need to enter my email address and then password, both manually.

The password is one of those super secure computer generated type.

I keep a copy of course, but is there a means by which I can have both these references ready to go please?

Thank you

johnny

Message I get is "Secure connection failed". I go to help-->troubleshoot-->refresh. It usually works once then next time it is the same. I've tried troubleshoot-->troubleshoot but that doesn't help either, I end up refreshing and then back to square one. Appreciate your help to a non-techie.

The screenshot/snipping tool was a great addition to Firefox and I use it regularly. However I'm writing a tutorial on Google Maps at the moment and it would be nice if I had the option to select the same region of screen each time as I invoke some of Google Map's tools. So ideally I could lock the selection rectangle position and also its dimensions as I snapshot each page to show the steps involved in using Map's tool. Preset aspect ratios for the selection rectangle would be useful also. Maybe it's possible to do all this already?

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

However, when I enter a secondary email, (AlexR@currently.com) a red popup message says: account already exists.

How can I eliminate msrigg@pacbell.net? How can I replace it with AlexR@currently.com?

I disabled the popup "Firefox is playing me ..." by entering about:config in the URL bar and set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled = false. This worked okay.

HOWEVER, the volume popup meter still often appear when I watch videos on youtube. It is stuck on the screen and not only is it annoying and won't go away unless I restart. Killing the browser alone does not get rid of it.

When I try to do multitasking ... whatever icon/button functions I click on ... they refuse to cooperate.

Recently booted off a new drive, when I originally signed in I had made a different firefox account since I was having verification issues. When I had that settled, I logged back into my old account which merged the two. It kept all of my old passwords and bookmarks I've made over the years, but it didn't keep my history. I've carefully sculpted my history for ages and I would really like to reaquire it somehow, let me know what's possible! Thanks.
