How to delete "main" sites (like "youtube.com") from automatic suggestions in the address bar

When I type "you" in the address bar, Firefox autofills to "youtube.com". However, I would like it to autofill to "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" instead.

In other cases, I can use shift+delete to remove suggestions so they no longer are offered; however, this does not appear to work for sites like youtube.com, as pressing shift+delete temporarily removes the suggestion but adding an additional "t" ("yout") causes it to autofill as "youtube.com" again.

Is there a way to delete these suggestion so the subdomain "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" is automatically suggested when I start typing this?

Ok so I have an issue with loading web pages via SOCKS5 + VPN in Firefox

I tried disable all the plug-ins also changed **network.proxy.allow\_hijacking\_localhost** from false to true and also changed **network.proxy.socks\_remote\_dns** from false to true.

None of this options helped :( I spent all day to figure out what's the problem but with no result.

I have used instructions on how to set up SOCKS5 from here: https://5socks.net/Manual/browser\_en.html(https://5socks.net/Manual/browser_en.html) but every time I try to acces let's say [google.com](https://google.com) I get the message "Unable to connect" like there is no internet.

I beg you guys to help me out... I did a lot of research but didn't find any proper solution.

Thanks in advance! Hope everyone is healthy and happy!

I am using the current release of the browser and I've noticed sites I've visited during private browsing are showing up under Highlights when opening a blank new tab.

I've noticed this at home and at work as I use sync.

When I delete the page from highlights I'm asked if I'm sure I want to delete the link from my history

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.

I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

Hello, after update Thunderbird to 78.1.0 start problem. First I can't see any account/email. After comeback I can't see any email content. Resolve this with safe mode. And after with reset toolbars and controls. It was not problem and any add on/plugin. But bigger problem, also after update to 78.1.1 was that i can't check email for 2 of 3 account. Both on same domain and with pop3. I try this: - remove and readd account. - change connection security from SSL to Starttls - change mailnews.tcptimeout. from 100 to 2000 - disable ESET Secuity complete - rename CERT8.DB and CERT9.DB - uninstall 32bit version and install 64bit - under saved password I delete password for this two account

And maybe something more. Nothing help.

In the end find solution to change connection security to None.

Btw computer is in local network and on other PC no problem with this account. And also not on mobile with wifi. Also no problem on computer outside this local network with all identic configiration and now also with version 78.1.1

What happens this block and how to come back to more secure connection

I use a separate container for gmail, so google can't connect my gmail usage to google analytics showing up in other pages. But when I open a link from gmail, I would like it to go to a separate container, either one container per site, or just one big container for all links opened from gmail. For example, someone sends me a link to a nytimes.com article and when I click on it, I want to not have to type in my nytimes login again but I also want it to be separate from my gmail login. This seems not to be possible in vanilla firefox (am I wrong?) but is there an extension that allows this behavior? If my entire question is based on a naive idea of privacy, I'm open to hearing that too. :) Thanks in advance for any help.

More granular control of OAuth2 settings - host URL, tenant, application ID

My school recently migrated from Gmail to Office365 email hosting. My access to email through Thunderbird was bricked and I'm trying to get it up and running with the new servers. The school doesn't officially support Thunderbird so there will no be help from that end, but I'm hoping it's possible. The tricky part is the OAuth2 authentication.

The school provided these instructions for setting up Evolution mail client. I was able to get Evolution working successfully by following those steps. The question now is how to do the same in Thunderbird.

I tried following along with these instructions for connecting to an OAuth2 server, substituting the SMTP and IMAP settings given in the Office365 browser client. But trying to download my mail gives the error "The IMAP server outlook.office365.com does not support the selected authentication method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the 'Account Settings | Server settings'

My guess is that Evolution worked because it let me specify

  1. Host URL
  2. Tenant
  3. Application ID

as shown in the picture.

Is there a way to do the same in Thunderbird?
