I've added several custom search engines to Firefox by right-clicking in a search field, selecting "Add as search engine" and choosing a keyword. Today I wanted to manage the list of search engines I've added in this manner but was unable to find where Firefox keeps the list. It's not in Options as far as I can tell. Any ideas?

In Thunderbird I added the Newsgroup account news.mozilla.org and subscribed to mozilla.support.firefox. Is that the correct news server and newsgroup for this forum? I'm wondering because when I downloaded posts from the server, I could not find any posts that I'm seeing here in this web view of the forum. Thank you

I use the dropdown in the search bar on Firefox (called "Awesome Bar," I think?). However, there are search engines which are clearly pinned. For example, @amazon or "Search with Amazon" or "Search with Google."

How can I delete them?

I have searched through this issue in the Community, and the solutions there are not available to me. I cannot "Hold" the item, and press delete. I cannot "right-click" on the item. I cannot highlight the choice and delete, either through right-clicking or hitting the delete key.

Please advise. I want the other choices to be available.

Thanks.

Firefox updated this morning for me, and now my search bar doesn't work (all search engines were cleared) and I can't find Google as an available search engine to add back. Further, when I do get search results from whatever engine I use, when I right click and say open in a new tab, nothing happens. Really scratching my head on this one since I've never had issues like this before.

Is it possible to have several PiPs running simultaneously in separate 'windows'?

The PiP view is actually really useful just for losing all the window decorations - panels, info/status/bookmark/title/tab bars etc.

It would be useful to be able to pop out two, three or more different videos (e.g. multiple youtube videos) to arrange them around the screen with optimal scaling/space usage to fit them all in.

Hello all -- I'm trying to follow a cricket match on https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/19497/game/1225249/england-vs-west-indies-3rd-test-west-indies-in-england-2020

They helpfully provide a reload every minute or so to keep you up to date with the scores and action. It works in Chrome and Edge but not in FF. I've told FF to allow pop-ups for this site but I can't seem to get it to work - I have to keep reloading the page manually.

Is there a way I can get the constrantly-reloading site to work automatically on FF?

Thanks for any pointers.

How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

I want to dictate in the on-line version with MS Word. When I select the Microphone icon, I get a message that the Website can't access the Microphone. I have already scanned all articles about the topic, but I can't get the microphone to work. When I go to Options > Privacy & Security > Permissions > Microphone > Settings I can enter the URL, but the Enter button doesn't work. There is no microphone icon in the address bar neither. When I select the Lock icon, it tells me in the information pop-up that I have given no permission to anything. I have neither found something in the Windows 10 setting. I tried to dictate with the on-line version of MS Word with Chrome, and there it works. I would very much appreciate the help of someone who came across the same issue. Regards Bernhard
