Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

A while ago, I carefully archived my Firefox 76 passwords as a csv file with PasswordExporter. Somehow, my Lockwise account got disabled so I don't have the option of just downloading them anymore. So my question is, how do I IMPORT that csv password file into my Firefox? I believe Lockwise used to have the option ofimporting from a file, but that option doesn't appear anymore.

After wiping my Mozilla Firefox profile data everywhere, including AppData Local and Roaming profile directories, Firefox autofill stopped saving and/or synchronizing my address information. The address autofill options disappeared entirely from Firefox "Privacy & Security" section. I checked about:config, which had "services.sync.engine.addresses" and "services.sync.engine.addresses.available" set to "False". I set them to "True", but that only restored the address synchronizing setting in Firefox "Sync" section, not in "Privacy & Security" section. Syncing did not restore the address autofill options for "Privacy & Security" section and neither did changing other autofill and address-related entries in about:config. Starting a fresh new profile yet again didn't help.

Could this be caused by network-wide block of "location.services.mozilla.com" ? That domain became blocked a while back and there was no way around it, not even with DNS-over-HTTPS, but back then address autofill was working just fine without accessing that domain.

How can I bring back the address autofill portion of "Privacy & Security" section???

I abandoned my effort to control policies using a policies.json file, since the posted instructions do not work and the moderator who was helping me didn't have any additional suggestions. So I'm now trying to do this via the local group policy editor in Windows 10 Pro with Firefox ESR 78.6.1.

I obtained the admx/adml files for that version of Firefox and placed them in the appropriate location in Windows\Policy Definitions.

Now I get the full list of polices in Firefox about:policies#documentation. There is also a Mozilla>Firefox node in the group policy editor with many options. However, AppAutoUpdate is not among them, even though it appears in the documentation. The only thing relevant at all in the GPO editor is Mozilla>Firefox>Preferences>app.update.auto, which both the GPO and about:policies says is deprecated and not supported.

So what is the actual truth? Is there, or is there not really an AppAutoUpdate policy that we can actually use to stop the endless pestering about updates in an ESR version? If there really is one, what are the actual steps to find it and make it work?

Thanks.

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

I am using the built-in spell-checker. When I right-click on an input field, there is a "Check Spelling" checkbox in the popup menu to enable the spell-checker. Once enabled, another "Languages" item will show up in the popup menu, allowing me to choose from the built-in dictionaries.

This list in huge. Ideally I would prefer if I there was a most recently used list, or I would be able to configure which choices to offer by default, and maybe have an additional menu item to show the rest/all.

Is there any way to handle such use-case? Alternatively, what is the process to raise this as feature request? Would this be a feature worthwhile to do so?
