I would like to have the old ctrl+tab behavior but at the same time use the new recentlyUsedOrder on a custom keybind

Hi.

I was looking how to restore the old ctrl+tab behavior and found https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241201#answer-1174594 . This answered my first half of the question.

However, I do find the new ctrl+tab behavior useful, however not as a replacement of the old behavior, but as an additional feature.

Is there any way I can have ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab behave in the old way, while binding a custom keybinding to the new recently used order tab behavior? (say, e.g. binding it to win+tab)

I am not ALLOWED to ever find the location of the firefox address or navigation bar. The "people" of firefox use these two names all over this site, and not once will anyone tell me the location, or how they may be accessed. If the most basic data is EXCLUDED, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, how is the new user to find anything? I have spent 7 hours on your website, because this browser idles at almost a gig of RAM on the browser homepage, I researched and found out I'm supposed use the "navigation bar" unfortunately someone forgot include it's location. It's great that you include the data that the "minimize memory usage" button exists as a tool, BUT WHERE IN THE HELL WAS IT HIDDEN? I have never experienced a product that intentionally excludes instructions, and there is no way to get any help or service, and I'm left with this poor excuse for customer service with leaving questions that will never be answered. Thanking you in advance for NO HELP OR SERVICE, James Erb(email address).

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?

The awesome bar's adress-bar history is a privacy threat. How to erase routinely. Even CCleaner Pro doesn't get it.

I've researched the net and every "solution" that has been offered fails to work.

I'd like the awesome bar (address bar) not to remember or suggest anything and if by chance it does remember something I want CCleaner to be able to delete the entries.

This is a deal breaker. If I can't protect my privacy using Firefox I'll find another browser. I am a longtime Firefox user and want to stay with Firefox.

How can I use multiple profiles and get links to open on the last used window?

I use multiple profiles for work and personal browsing, and it's very important that I know which window will open a link when I click it.

I do this today on Chrome by focusing on the browser I want to receive the link before clicking it. Otherwise you have to constantly copy/paste a link from one window into another, which is a huge time waste.

This is today, the only thing that is stopping me from moving from Chrome to Firefox. Perhaps I missed something when I tried doing this in the past. Is there a setting or something else that can get Firefox to have a similar behavior?

Don't really need more details, I think the title says it all :) I could use the adress bar to search for stuff nad find something from my beoser history but thatäs not really the same thing.

Sometimes I need to really dig deeö in the history to find what I had forgotten I had, and ehen I find it, I nne that double click to open a tab just like I open every other tab - in a new one. Instead, "history" opens it up in the current ues one.

I've had Firefox "armored" for a while - Ublock to block adds, Ghostery to block trackers and other things, Cookiebro to control who installs information on my computer. The latest Firefox (63.0) now also has tracking protection. I've mostly been happy with the first three - is Firefox's new tracking protection overkill?? Maybe too much of a good thing, and if so which one should I get rid of??

Any suggestions? thnx,...

I was writing in blog post and needed to Underline something and it opened View Source. I opened several other pages and it happened on all of them. Not sure if Firefox didn't recognize wordpress's text editor as a text editor, if there is a different Underline shortcut or if they are just doubled up and View Source takes precedent.

For ages now I've used Firefox and to save time as i swap pages a lot doing hobbiest web development and such, I use ctrl+e. Recently, like tonight recently whenever I do control+e it's started putting ? before it. Whenever this happens any domain I enter is searched. It may be a minor thing but it seriously annoys me that this started happening. It's one of the main things I hate about MS Edge! Is there any way to stop/fix this so I can just go back to my normal lifestyle? Thanks in advance - Steve

Every time I open a new tab, I get this popup at the bottom of the page saying Browse By Yourself. I keep closing it with the X at the top right, but it just keeps coming up.

How can I stop this? There should be an option to stop sending the info/"Got it" or whatever.

Thanks.

Refreshed Firefox on my computer after getting a message that it was performing slowly. Now I am unable to open private browsing.

If I type in about:privatebrowsing then I get the private browsing screen however if I type anything in to that screen to search for it reverts to normal browsing.

I’m a silver surfer so not the most technically minded but does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get private browsing back. Have used Firefox for quite a long time with no issues before this so don’t really want to change to a different browser.

Can confirm using Windows 7.

Thanking you in anticipation.
