I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

New change?? No longer different PDF handling for in-browser vs. Download panela

On FF v78.0.2 (Win 10/64-bit), it used to be that I could open PDF links within a website using FF's built-in PDF Viewer. However, after saving them to disk, when I opened the PDF from the Downloads panel, it would open in my preferred 3rd party app. This was desired and worked perfectly.

But this seems to have changed! I either have to commit to the built-in always, or an external app always, irrespective of whether I am opening from a browser link or the download panel.

This is a terrible behavior. FF should open PDFs in the download handler (like ALL other file types there) with the OS's preferred PDF handler, which, in my case, is not FF's built-in Viewer.

If open a PDF in the built-in Viewer and save it from there, why would I want to re-open it in the built-in PDF viewer when opening from the download panel?

FF's built-in Viewer is great for a quick view of a PDF, I quite like it. But if I take the time to save it, I typically want more advanced functionality, like highlighting, filling in forms, etc. It worked perfectly before, please revert and stop fixing things that aren't broken. Or at least differentiate between the download panel and website links. Is there any hope in submitting a bug report?

Formerly there used to be a Firefox icon in the top left of the Firefox window (left of the menu bar; I'm not sure if it was actually part of the menu bar or not). This icon no longer appears. I found it useful because I use several browsers, and it's handy sometimes to be sure which one I'm in! Also to tell the difference between regular Firefox and DeveloperEdition (Red and Blue icons respectively). Is there any way I can get this icon to display in current versions of Firefox? Please note I'm NOT asking how to display the menu bar. I can do that.

I am running firefox 82.0, 64bit. I came home today and when i opened firefox to my home page, the primary theme/background is the same, but the text boxes are now pure white. I had them set to a brown color, and chrome shows my homepage with the correct text box color of brown. I have tried using Options/fonts and colors, and it does nothing. What do I need to do to get the text box backgrounds back to a more soothing contrast color?

Here's the issue in a nutshell:

When I navigate to this URL (https://publicdelivery.b-cdn.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Jeff-Koons-Michael-Jackson-and-Bubbles-1988-ceramic-106.7-x-179.1-x-82.5cm.jpg) intending on saving out the picture, Firefox ( or so it appears) forces the user to save it as webp, instead of its actual format, as you can see from the URL. Granted, I got to that photo in the first place from Google image search but spawned it into an independent window, which should occupy a separate memory space and not reference a previously cached file. While i get the primary application is to allow for multiple res versions while referencing only one file, this behaviour is pointless, irksome and serves no practical purpose when accessing the asset with an explicit URL, plus it puts unnecessary and Big Brother-ish barriers up for the less savvy. I solved the issue ultimately, but who is at fault here? Is this a function of Firefox or of the CDN where it's hosted?

Hi, I have started to use notion.so and they have a nice range of keyboard shortcuts, e.g.

cmd + shift + p

for moving pages :)

Unfortunately this shortcut is already "blocked" by Firefox for opening "New Private Windows".

There is no chance to alter the keyboard-shortcuts on notion, so I wonder if anyone can help me with remapping this one in Firefox to, let's say: cmd + alt + n?

Hello,

I recently installed the Multi-Account Containers extension but noticed that it also added some unwanted right click context menu items to assets for websites that I have put into containers. For example google.com and youtube.com are both put inside a "google" container. Now I have used the folowing code: "menu[label="Open Link in New Google Tab"] {display:none!important;} " in the userChrome.css file to remove the context menu item: "Open Link in New Google Tab" but it's only taking effect on the google.com website and not youtube.com.

Anyone know the reason why?

Thanks in advace.
