I am still looking for accessibility fixes. I have sensory processing issues, and all the animation online *hurts,* so I need ways to disable animation.

If I search for accessibility, it returns results involving access to this or that, unrelated to accessibility for disabled users.

If I search for disable animation accessibility -access it still returns results involving access to this or that... What is a point of searches if the results don't involve important search terms and contain excluded terms?

In former days I could double click on a search engine and edit it. This has gone.

Only adding new and deleting searchengines now possible . A long time ago I could just edit entries in /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/searchplugins/locale/.

for example (like in chrome now) : engine name: jahr URL: {google:baseURL}search?q=%s&tbs=qdr:y Best regards hhgoten

My default search setting keeps reverting back to Yahoo after I reset my computer. Closing Firefox keeps the one I change it to but restarting the computer changes it.

I can't open the history sidebar. The "Show your History" option opens it's tab fine (the drop-down that says "Show History Sidebar", "Clear Recent History..." ect.). But, when clicking on the "Show History Sidebar", nothing comes up. I can use the "Show All History" option but the sidebar doesn't open for some reason.
