I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

My old PC died, luckily, I had a new (secondhand) one ready to go.

I am using a pre-quantum version of Firefox.

Where can I get legacy versions of extensions that I need?

Yes, they've all been updated and maintained, but, there are several whose functions are severaly depreciated - including one where I would now have to actually PAY MONEY to do what I used to be able to do with ease on the legacy version.

Urgently seeking legacy versions that all worked fine before my old PC hit the dust last week.

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

On FF v78.0.2 (Win 10/64-bit), it used to be that I could open PDF links within a website using FF's built-in PDF Viewer. However, after saving them to disk, when I opened the PDF from the Downloads panel, it would open in my preferred 3rd party app. This was desired and worked perfectly.

But this seems to have changed! I either have to commit to the built-in always, or an external app always, irrespective of whether I am opening from a browser link or the download panel.

This is a terrible behavior. FF should open PDFs in the download handler (like ALL other file types there) with the OS's preferred PDF handler, which, in my case, is not FF's built-in Viewer.

If open a PDF in the built-in Viewer and save it from there, why would I want to re-open it in the built-in PDF viewer when opening from the download panel?

FF's built-in Viewer is great for a quick view of a PDF, I quite like it. But if I take the time to save it, I typically want more advanced functionality, like highlighting, filling in forms, etc. It worked perfectly before, please revert and stop fixing things that aren't broken. Or at least differentiate between the download panel and website links. Is there any hope in submitting a bug report?

I have Thunderbird 68.10.0 on two Windows 10 computers, and I use "unified folders" on both. On both, in the Folder pane under "Inbox" there is a line for each of my email accounts. However, on computer "A" when I select the "Inbox" line itself, I see all messages from all account inboxes combined in the message list, whereas on computer "B" I see nothing in the message list when I select the "Inbox" line.

> How do I configure "B" to have the same behavior as "A"?

Further info: -- "A" also shows entries for "Unread" and "Total," but not "Size" (if I have those columns displayed) on the "Inbox" line, but "B" shows nothing in those columns for the "Inbox" line. -- When I right-click on "Inbox" on "A," I have five options, but on "B" I have eight. -- This isn't new behavior from a recent update; I am just finally asking after years. -- The analogous thing applies to Drafts, Sent, Archives, Junk and Trash folders for my accounts. Drafts and Sent lines display Unread and Total, but Archives, Junk and Trash only display Total.

So, I just upgraded to version 78.1 and I just hate the way it looks. The old folders used to be yellow and distinct. The new folders are white with a blue outline of the same color as the rest of the theme. I hate that. It all just looks the same, as if they are trying to hide everything with the same color. This may be the "Modern Trend" but I hate the modern trend. I like things to stay the same. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Is there a way to get the old look back? I looked through the addon themes, but there are only three that are compatible with my version and they are all crazy stuff that I hate worst than the new default theme.

Viewing a national newspaper site today, Firefox popped up an odd message Continue to installation of Flash player. It then loads (tries) https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu and an ID string. I think I can run Flash already on my browser so why do I have to do this?

The URL worries me, it may be genuine but would like confirmation it is. As mentioned I can already see/use Flash so why the message?

Search for https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu returns nothing other than an Alexa position. Thanks in advance. McP/

Hi,

I love TB and was so happy to see 78 it is a perfect email app so that is clear. Thanks for it and all the efforts. First thing after update for me was to check if I can remove some of the drive me nuts keyboard shortcuts.

Why? They drive my nuts. Typically when I use search field - sometimes I miss-click, or the app was not active, and I start typing what I am looking for and guess what... threads go to junk or are red, archived...depending on the key I press. Even though I touch type still I am too fast :)

Any chance to give a freedom to change it so I can love it even more? There was an add-on but for older versions :( Maybe someone has solution.

Thanks, WH

I want to remove or set my home screen to something else other than the Firefox default.

I've managed to remove everything from the default home screen, which is a start. But I don't want a home screen at all.

Ideally, Firefox would just resume as it was the previous time it opened. That's how it worked until a recent update.
