If I click on any "mailto" link the only options are Gmail or Firefox.

If I go into Settings and choose applications then content type: mailto the same options are there- nothing for Yahoo Mail.

It used to be there, now it has gone.

Using version 110.0.1

Is there any way to manually add Yahoo mail to Firefox?

Hello, on one of my computers I have my new tab set to have 10 rows of pinned links. I went to `about:config` and copied the `browser.newtabpage.pinned` string. I then pasted it into the string on a new device I'm setting up, but it doesn't do anything.

Is there any way to get this working? My new tab on the device I'm setting up has none of the pinned links, just sites I commonly visit

Thanks, let me know if I need to provide any more information.

Since about two months ago, I haven't been able to update Firefox(or any other browser for that matter). I've tried the typical method of going to Preferences, checking for updates, but I can't get passed that point. I get this error message stating "Failed to check for updates."

Chrome was giving me much of the same issue, I've allowed GoogleUpdate on my firewall rules, restarted the PC and tried again. Still got the same error message. I have no other antivirus software installed on this device other than the Windows Defender default app. Firefox hasn't told what I should be allowing past my firewall so I haven't tried anything similar for Firefox.

I also tried uninstalling Firefox, but when I tried to reinstall, I couldn't finish that process because clicking on Download Now led me to this error message stating "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at download.mozilla.org."

I assumed this was maybe a DNS issue. I tried a DNS flush but that also was ineffective. I tried changing my DNS servers to 1.1.1.1 and 1.1.1.2, also tried other known DNS servers but that didn't work either.

In the meantime, I'd like to at least get an offline installer going because my current version is 110.0.1.

Thank you.

I have Firefox 113 on a 14" laptop. The toolbar takes up 1/3 of the height of the screen, which I find intolerable and an obstacle in my work. According to my research, there is no way to adjust the height of the toolbar only. I have a vision problem and need to have fonts a certain size. Any reason why I wouldn't go back to Firefox 110? I have 110 on another 14" computer and it looks great.

I came back to Firefox - which was my preferred browser for many years - because Chrome is a big fat memory hog, and would spend quite a while swapping pages into memory if it had been out of focus for a while. Opinions at the time varied widely, but suggested Firefox was more efficient.

Nope.. Firefox is at least as bad. And worse; it can't maintain a connection to Gmail which forces me to completely restart the browser every day. Mention this to Mozilla support and all you get from the devs is, "I don't experience this (on my high-end dev system) so it can't exist". Yeah, I'm running Firefox in the 2GB left over on my 8GB laptop - how hard can it be to write efficient code.. memory hog or slightly worse memory hog isn't much of a difference to me.

And of course I cant get the extensibility I used to have; and the constant pestering every-single-time the browser gets focus to do an upgrade. Going back to Chrome; though I expect things to get shaken up for the better soon enough (so over this old-skool grind with poorly functional, slow and unreliable software: bring on the AI)

I have looked at dozens of support Q and A's and have not been able to figure out how to get links to work how I think they should.

If I click on a link in a tab that opens another site I want that to open a new tab. If I click on a link that goes to a a page on the current website I want it to be in the same tab. If I click on a link in an external program then I want that to be a new tab.

I have played around with about:config settings for browser.link (there are 6) using info found here and elsewhere and no combination I have tried does what I think should happen every time. Some websites do act correctly but others pretty soon have many open tabs when all I was doing was trying to navigate the site.

I even tried the "Open link with new tab" plugin and it doesn't do what it says it can do (I have checked "Open a link to a different site on a tab").

Anyone know how to get Firefox to do what I think is the obvious way to handle it?
