I do not like the search engine Bing - it posts nasty images automatically when I pull up my Mozilla Firefox. How can I remove it completely from showing up with Mozilla and if possible how do I make Google automatically be the search engine that accompanies Mozilla?

Viewing two tabs side-by-side can be very helpful, for example when copying information across. This used to work in older version using the AddOns tiled=tabs/pages. But in FF76 tiled-pages has very limited functionality and does not work for me for any page that requires javascript - so most pages requiring logins are out.

How can I get this very time-saving functionality back?

I want nothing more than to use Firefox Developer edition as my main browser but I simply cannot because of one simple thing. I can't change the shortcut to open developer tools! The addons that are available that handle this task are only compatible with FF, not FF Developer edition and it is driving me crazy! I need to be able to change this. Is there anything you can offer to help?

I woke up this morning to find that firefox updated without my permission. this annoys me. What annoys me the most, however, is not having to re-customize every thing on the toolbar, but the fact that there is NO REFRESH BUTTON. I liked having a refresh button. it was very handy. I liked having it to the left of my address bar. Why can I no longer have a refresh button to the left of the address bar? the only one I can seem to find in imbedded in a very awkward and inconvenient place inside the address bar. I feel this is unacceptable. When looking at the page made to advertize firefox, it stats that it was "Made with a mission to put you first." this is not putting me first. this is taking control away from me and making the interface that much less intuitive. I would like to have my refresh button back. I do not want to have to go through antoher workaround like downloading a classic theme and screwing with that. I just want the refresh button. now, where is the refresh button and how can I place it where I want it to go? it's a simple question, yet I have not found any answer for it anywhere on this site.

When I go to a site and try to open something (like a monthly statement, etc.) instead of opening it in pdf so I can read it Firefox makes me download it, save it, and then open it. Then I have to go through the whole find it and delete it routine if I don't want to keep it. Don't know why this started to happen recently, and it does not do it on all sites.

I'm fine with multiple tabs and all that, but sometimes I want to keep things in the same tab. But then some web developers don't seem to understand this, and code their pages to force links to open in a new tab (or possibly even a new window, but at least I have that under control). There used to be a perfectly cromulent extension that solved this problem by adding an "open in same tab" option to the context menu, but it has not been updated for FF Quantum and probably never will be. Are there any current extensions that do this? Or is there another way that I can restore this option, and only open new tabs when *I* choose to do so?

We need to access a web site of the European Medicines Agency where graphs are only visible if the Adobe Flash Player is running. This is no longer possible with FireFox 64 bits ... which forces us to use Edge (which we do not like)... Since EMA may take a lot of time to convert its web sites for using HTML 5 and stop using Adobe Flash Player, we do need an alternative for FireFox ... Is there any that Mozilla would recommend ?

I received some good suggestions about how to shut down without losing whatever was on the main window, when I didn't know another window had opened. Use Ctrl-Shft-Q.

But I so use X without thinking, that I have lost another load of tabs (that I reconstructed partially--they don't all show up in history unless every one has been opened in the last session, something I never, ever do) by using the wrong means to shut down FireFox.

Isn't this something FF should address? I can't be the only person losing 30+ tabs and unable to get them back bbc they weren't actually opened, but merely sitting on the Tab Row, so not in History.

This for me is gigantic. And reminding myself to use Ctrl-Shft-Q really is a lot to expect when every other program and app closes reliably with X.

Thanks.

I am running FF 77.0.1. This has been an issue for awhile however. In Options, under Applications/PDF, there is no Preview in Firefox option. I've tried quitting FF, renaming/moving handlers.json; but on re-opening the relevant section remains the same(action=0). I discovered about:config pdfjs.disable=false, previously it was set to true. Then in Options/Applications/PDF, "Firefox" is an option to open, and the action=3 in handlers.json, however the behavior of downloaded pdfs is the same (downloaded). (This is trying example pdfs from different sites). I've tried changing about:config security.cps.enable=false, no change. I've also seen a plugin to "fix content types" that shows up on this site, but it didn't change anything. From what I gather, action=3 should be Preview in Firefox, not Firefox, and all pdfs are being downloaded. Is there a way to fix this? Not seeing pdfs in browser is significantly annoying.

It was working perfect two days ago. Now I can't download anything with realplayer.Sometimes nothing happens when I click on "download video", other times it acts like it is downloading but at an accelerated speed but when I try to play it all I have is a black screen. Videos that I downloaded previously still play normally. I keep my cache and cookies cleared out constantly with Ccleaner.

I checked the forum for a solution and it said to disable RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin. but I can't find one with that exact name. I searched for that add-on/extension at Firefox and I can't find one with that particular name there either! So, what next? I tried to copy and paste the video URL into the realplayer new file box per realplayer help but that fails also. (it appears to download but all I get is a black screen during playback, no video or audio.) HELP!!
