In the previous version of Firefox on my phone a long press on the back button showed a list of pages I had visited akin to the dropdown on desktop Firefox. This functionality seems to have disappeared from this new version, are there any plans to bring it back? There are still many sites out there that are not following a single-page approach to web design.

After the latest update, it's no longer possible to press and hold the back-button to see a list of all pages you've been to in the current tab. Will this function come back soon?

To me, it feels like the new update (downdate?) has taken away everything I found useful with firefox, (gridded tabs; so you could see a preview of the tabs, the possibility to organize/rearrange tabs, press-and-hold "back" to see where you've been - all gone).

I have been fiddling with Firefox focus and I have to say, the security features are golden (: The access to camera and microphone are blocked by default. I was wondering if there were any ways to do that with the Firefox general version for Android?

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

In the (now closed) thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/814310#answer-174482

It recommends: "Go into the options and untick the double click to translate box" for "Google Dictionary and Translate 2.5 add-on"

... but does not explain how to get to the options. I am not sure, in fact, that this is the solution.

I have "Easy Google Translate (3.1)" ... but this is already disabled. I don't see any other Google Translate add-on installed at this time, per: "about:addons" ... I also searched "about:config" for "Translate" and didn't find Google Translate their either.

am I looking in the right place, or is there another solution?

Hope someone knows the answer...

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a question, just a suggestion for others with a similar issue.

I recently upgraded to FF 17.0. I also tried a couple of new extensions because my old ones were incompatible. It seems that one of the new extensions installed Ask.com on any New Tabs that I opened. I searched for a fix and could only come up with

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/837470

I started FF in Safe Mode with everything disabled and it still happened. I removed all the new extensions and it still happened.

Finally, I figured something out that DID work. If you are having a similar problem, try this:

Type "about:config" into the address bar.

Type "ask" into the Search bar.

Find the following entry:

browser.newtab.url

Double-click on it and simply delete the value. Now all of your New Tabs will open to a blank page. Or, if you want a different page, type in the address (e.g. google.com, bing,com, etc.).

Problem solved.
