Running WIN10. I have used FF w Google for about 20 years, and always had new searches open in same window, new tab. Following recent refresh of FF, that seems to be not possible. Links open in new tab, but not searches. In about:config the browser.search.openintab setting is True

I have closed and reopened FF, and closed and reopened WIN10.

What might be over-riding this? Many thanks!

Sorry if this question has been asked before. I have 4 devices and have a lot of websites in the Top sites all pinned on all 4 rows and recently added another device but the home screen Top Sites are not being syncing across devices. Are pinned top sites no longer synchronising across devices?

It's time consuming adding and changing on all 4 devices.

I can't login to Twitch. It says "Something went wrong. Please try again." I tried in an incognito window and it works, but I tried clearing cookies for twitch.tv, and opening Firefox in troubleshooting mode, and neither of them worked. Why can I login in incognito mode, but not otherwise?

Hello, I was hoping someone could help explain an odd thing I have been seeing for a split secound while using Firefox. Currently using the newest version of Firefox but have been noticing this happen for the last few months. While using Firefox I will see a white box flash in the upper right of the Firefox window for a few milliseconds.

I had to do a screen recording the slow down the recording down wish was a pain but I did capture it and included a screen grab below. I am running add-on's (Three Ad-Blockers) which I do use day to day but have independently removed them and still see the flashing.

Thanks for your time and assistance...

Banking logon page is distorted

I have been using Firefox for accessing my desktop online banking for some years. In the last few days, the images on the part of the logon page that requires card and security details are stretched laterally, which prevents use. The text seems normal. See attached screenshot.

I can shrink the image to fit my screen, but I have not entered any details. The bank has checked their end and cannot find anything wrong: suggested that I switch browser - which worked.

I prefer to continue with Firefox, so wish to find a fix. Have I got some malware on-board, or is it an update issue?

I use Norton for security, and I've done a full sweep having updated. Nothing found. I use CCleaner very regularly - nothing found after checking for updates.

What do I need to do now, please?

It appears that 2 preferences are regularly changing by themselves on a family member's WIndows 10 laptop.

1. The "mailto" option disappears from Applications. We fix it a Firefox Refresh which restores it...until it disappears again within days or weeks.

2. The "Always ask where to save files" unchecks in Downloads. We check it, and it works fine...until it becomes unchecked again within weeks.

What do we need to look for in order to avoid this?

I tried to log into Barclays online banking (bank.barclays.co.uk) on my laptop - a process I've used numerous times without problems. The app presents 3 small graphics images of their card and card reader to demonstrate where to find/enter info. These graphics are greatly elongated laterally, and crucial data entry box is missing or obscured, thus making login impossible. At the bank's suggestion, I logged in without problems using a different browser (AVG Secure), so it would appear to be a problem peculiar to Firefox. Can I suggest that you liaise with Barclays to fix this problem?

Hey Folks,

The CTRL+ B shortcut often used to Bold text (literally everywhere) opens Firefox's Bookmark Manager side bar and sometimes formats text in the browser.

Does anyone know how to disable the Bookmark manager and/or resign this classic shortcut to text formatting only? The only option I found in the Browser menu 'Tools> Page Info> Permissions > Override keyboard shortcuts' does not offer a meaningful solution. I cannot imagine this most basic shortcut is not available for Firefox, I must be overlooking something.

I use this particular formatting shortcut quite often to create/modify browser page content for my job and would like to avoid using another web browser.

Thanks for your help!

I've been receiving notifications for a good while. I could click on an icon in my toolbar and it would list the most recent notifications. I could click on the one in which I was interested and the browser would open that website with the info referred to by the notification. Now I can't find that icon. I like that feature but as I research, it seems that I was dreaming. I can't find any info about the referred to icon. I like the notification but I can't figure out how to get to them.

Thank you, David Shreffler Pryor, OK
