Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

On multiple websites I visit, picture in picture happens automatically when I scroll past a video or click another section of a page. I find it highly annoying and distracting. I would like to disable it completely. How do I do this? I'd appreciate an answer that isn't too technical. Thanks.

Hello, I have a problem with YouTube from my PC. I was already signed in my account and suddenly today I cant's see anywhere the option "Switch accounts" and "sing out" when I click on my picture up on the right edge. Also, even though I am singed in and I can see my picture on up on the right edge, at the same time I see on the left, the icon to sign in (it is under history) and I don't see my playlists. However if I click on "Library" (above history) on the new page I see my playlists. If I click on the sign in on the left side (under history) it shows me it shows me again to sign in (even though I had signed in before and I could see my picture on the top of the right corner), I click on my icon and I read: 405. That’s an error. The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/guide. That’s all we know.

It seems like I am signed in, but at the same time not signed in. It's very strange and it has never happened to me. Firefox is updated. On my mobile I don't have any problem. I used Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge and I don't have any problem. Everything is OK there. Only with Firefox on PC I have this problem. I cleared the Cache and Cookies and restarted it, but the problem remains. I also turned off all my add-ons and it didn't fix the problem. What to do? Please, I need your help.

There is a certain website that I have to visit often. I usually type the first few letters of the URL into search bar but, annoyingly, there's another website with almost exactly the same URL. Firefox always autofills the wrong URL and I always end up getting directed to the wrong site. Is there a way to prevent firefox from autofilling that URL and change it to the correct one?

Printing Problems with Firefox

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

When using an internal website I usually get an error when using Firefox:

Bad request Cannot parse token. root cause: Unable to decrypt bytes [ (then a bunch of numbers).

If I clear cookies this then it works for a while. If I use Chrome or Edge it usually works although sometimes I get something similar. The IT chaps insist it's a browser issue(of course). I'd rather not have to keep clearing cookies - any thoughts?

For the second time in the past couple of weeks I have attempted to log into a website, found the password missing, then found all my passwords missing. I restored 3 different Mozilla folders from backup: User AppData>Roaming, AppData>Local, and ProgramData with no success.

I managed to recover my passwords by logging out of my FF, logging back in, and syncing with Lockwise on my Android phone; however losing passwords is a PIA. Why would this be happening and where are the passwords stored so I can recover from backup if necessary?

I receive the message "A web page is slowing down your browser". I have read the other Firefox users posts with the same problem but none of the solutions solve the problem. I don't have this problem with Google's Chrome nor with Microsoft's browser. The main website this problem presents itself on is my preferred news site, FoxNews.com.

Since I would prefer to continue using Firefox please find the problem and FIX your Firefox browser! Thank you.

I had **two (2)** Firefox browsers. They both worked fine.

Each one had links to web pages that worked fine.

There was an automatic start last night - and only one browser returned. The browser had different bookmarks. (**All** of those bookmarks aren't useful.)

How do I get both Firefox browsers back after there is an automatic start?

For some reason, YouTube is not being very responsive to my account. I've logged in and out of my Gmail account to view YouTube on Firefox and there are several problems that are troubling me.

1. It doesn't recognize me as a logged in user but as a guest. Even when I'm logged in, YouTube still sees me as a guest. For example when I click on the Bell icon on the top right of the site I can't view my notifications at all from those who've I've subscribed.

2. There is no human way to access account settings as a "logged" in user. I tried modifying the settings by clicking on the gear icon on the top right. The options for settings only appear "normal" for a logged user for a split second till it gets overwritten in appearance by a prompt for people who are guests on YouTube.

I still have access to subscriptions only by opening another tab and through that subscription tab I can still view things normally such as my playlists and history for example. But those two major problems persist.

I've logged into YouTube on Brave and no problems I mentioned happened.

Hi, I have had a very bad change in my computer, where my system was removed. I could not get it back and was helped to get some things back. In my computer, many things are very different to view things, so makes anything I can do is missing I need to have my Bookmarks, lost on the 16th. They will help me a great deal. Is there anyway to get my original Bookmarks List?

A Lil More; I had the song went off line on iTunes.  I found something that said it would fix that.  Loaded it and let it go, when I came back 2 hours ago.  All my programs were deleted.  If I could get that back, that would even be better.  Thanks so much.  Rene
