I am trying to add DuckDuckGo as my default browser. It will not show up in the default list to choose. I have it added as an extension, but that doesn't seem to do anything. I am looking to replace the Google search bar in the Home page with DuckDuckGo. How do I go about accomplishing that? Thx in advance for all replies.

Hi,

Somehow, Amazon is now showing as my first Top Site. I have a one-row Top Site bar, and I have tried to unpin/remove/delete/dismiss it for two days, it still remains in the exact same spot. Why can't I get rid of it? I've searched the net & tried every remedy I could find...nothing. It's maddening. Please help me!

Firefox version 79.0

Thanks,

Scott

My Firefox wants to upgrade itself to version 79.

I'm now running version 73. Earlier this year Firefox auto-updated itself to version 74. Cors Everywhere did not work in version 74, and I need to use Cors Everywhere frequently. To get Cors Everywhere to work, I had to go back to version 73, and of course lost all my bookmarks, logins, etc.

So before allowing it to update to version 79, I'd like to know if Cors Everywhere works in version 79.

Thank you.

Our computer did an automatic Mozilla update a few days and now the hyperlinks within emails in Outlook will not open in Firefox - an error message comes up saying Application not found.

We have repeatedly updated default programs in Outlook, Firefox and Microsoft Control Panel default applications - they keep reverting to Unknown Application upon restart.

We had a problem with pdf's not opening at all after the update as well and similar problem with it reverting after restart, however have fixed that (we think) through Adobe's settings.

Any idea what else we can try re hyperlinks?

Thanks

Specific website crashes PC when using Firefox but not Chrome

Windows 7 Pro 64bit Athlon Phonom II X555 12GB DDR2 Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 motherboard with integrated graphics Firefox 79.0 64bit (updated from a previous version but I did not make note of the previous version number)

Whenever I go to the login page at this site: https://community.ui.com/ using Firefox, my computer blue screens. Sometimes I will see the demo animation in on the right get all garbled and if I close FF quickly, no blue screen. Other times my whole screen just goes blank before I have a chance to do anything and then the blue screen. This does not happen with Chrome or Edge. These are 100% repeatable. ALWAYS with Firefox, NEVER with Chrome or Edge. Blue screen logs show errors related to atikmpag.sys (my graphics driver) and dxgkrnl.sys (DirectX). I checked for a graphics driver update; there was none. So I uninstalled and reinstalled using a fresh download from the motherboard manufacturer's website (using embedded graphics, no discreet GPU in this system). Did not solve the issue. I don't recall what version of Firefox I was using, but I updated to 79.0 and also tried ESR. No change. Ran Mozilla's recommended refresh procedure which removes extensions and resets settings. No change. Booted Windows into Safe Mode and the problem does NOT occur. When I booted back into normal mode, I uninstalled the graphics driver again and tried with default settings -- problem doesn't happen!

While this appears to be an issue with the graphics driver, it only happens in FF, so there seems to be an issue with the two interacting. The latest Firefox crash report listed in about:crashes is from November 2019, long before this issue was discovered. I assume that because the whole computer is crashing with a BSOD, FF doesn't register the crash.

I like to have a lot of tabs opened (some aren't loaded, but the count of tabs goes to ~400 sometimes).

You can write "%gmail" in address/search bar and it will find the gmail tab if any is opened. But you can't do this with a simple click. That's why my "go to gmail" sequence is now Ctrl+T, %gmail, down arrow, enter. I'd suggest an option to allow for %gmail in "bookmarks bar" (I'm not sure how do you name it in English, but what I mean is the toolbar of favourites addresses or - simply - in favourites.)

What do you think? I've read about https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/tabs , but as I understand, I can't use it in a "favourite".

I did not usemy pc for a while. After about two months, I found out that Firefox account was requesting to log in again. But after logging in, I was surprised to see that all my account passwords had been deleted. Previously, I considered Firefox account and synced passwords to be the safest way, but there is no place left for trust. It is regrettable...
