I have two different items in my Collection, but both have the same name, which seem to have been taken from the page title. The only difference in the URLs should be the parameters. These items display two very different sets of information.

How to I tell them apart? I can't find a way to rename them.

I tried long-pressing on them, but nothing happened. I can't even see the full URLs.

I recently switched to a UK keyboard layout (Logitech MX keys with UK layout), from a US international layout. I changed the system settings to use the proper input and it works like a charm on every program I have, except the browser. Even if I have changed Firefox's main language as "English (UK)" and restarted it, it doesn't recognize sequences such as "CTRL + `" follwed by a vocal. Is there any known solution to this issue?

Hello, in the last few days I have been seeing a weird issue when browsing webpages on Firefox for Android. Horizontal bars, alternately in white, black or grey, obscure small parts of the page, usually disappearing after a short while. This seems to happen particularly often when I'm highlighting text on the webpage.

This hadn't happened before.

Images are added for reference.

SYSTEM SPECS: OS: Windows 7 System Type: 64-bit Operating System RAM: 2 GB Firefox Version: 87.0 (64-bit Installation)

I want to try the new Proton UI for Firefox. I followed all these steps: 1. Go to "about:config". 2. Search for "proton" and set the "browser.proton.enabled" from false to true. 3. Restart Firefox.

But that didn't work. Is the Proton UI no longer supported in Windows 7? Or some other problem...

Enforcing blank page (against group policy)

Hi, I work for a large corporation. My employer enforces an annoying policy that when loading Firefox it defaults to the corporate intranet. This is really slow and hampers my productivity big time as I very often (re)load Firefox. Especially when in video sharing calls with customers this is extremely annoying as I'm working 99.9 % from home on a lousy VPN bandwidth.

Can I enforce somehow that Firefox loads a blank page by default, essentially overriding the group policy ? e.g. by using the command line when clicking on the Firefox icon in Windows 10 ?

      or via a batch file or some other way which can improve this situation ?

The installed version of FF is 78.8.0esr (64-bits), should be latest.

Your support is most welcome ! Cordially Yours, Jean.

When I do a search using the address bar, clicking a search engine won't take me to the result directly. Instead a blue box (e.g. @Google) pops up in the address bar, and I have to click one more time to do the search. But the Firefox installed in my office needs one click only (i.e. no blue box pop-up). Is there a way to prevent the blue box from appearing?

(Both versions of Firefox are up to date, 83.0 64bit)

Hi, I have recently discovered that I cannot save all images via the above route. Might this have something to do with an update? This feature is very useful when you are working with some technical sites that have images of interest. Instead of save the images one by one, or use additional unnecessary addons that may or may not work, I could select all images, point to a subfolder and say 'Open.' This has stopped working. My currecnt version is Firefox 84.0.2, 64-bit, on Linux. Any ideas/solutions on how to get this feature back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I use `Always ask you where to save files` when download and every time I download something they're always in different places.

The problem is if I rename the file when I forget to rename it before I press the download, Firefox says the file is missing and refuses to tell me where did I save that file. The `Open Contained Folder` is greyed out and I can't find any location related text.

How can I find where did I download my files?

And why `Open Contained Folder` has to be greyed out?
