I just got a new computer and installed firefox again. On my old desktop, the 2nd tab opened a page with sites in boxes and my customized background. Now, the 2nd tab is just recent visited websites. How do I change it back to my customized page? Also, can I make the customized link age my homepage?

Why does Firefox ask me if I want to continue with my current browser or switch to my previous which is "Ask.com" which I definitely do not want? Annoying!!!!!

This is extremely annoying and I will switch to IE after upgrading if there is no immediate resolution IMMEDIATELY since every time I open the browser or click on anything, I get solicited to revert back to my old homepage which was not set by me. I don't want "Ask.com" as my homepage (or search engine) as I do not like it and want the freedom to have my own homepage without being harassed and/or solicited every time I click on something! This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by me. I don't have the time to deal with this and have already WASTED my time by posting this question, then having to set up an account, then giving details, then having to login only to have my details gone causing me to HAVE TO RE-INSERT THE DETAILS INTO THIS QUESTION WHEN I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE DEALING WITH THIS AT ALL.........NO RESPECT FOR MY TIME AND I AM NOT HAPPY!!!

How to completely disable Tab Groups?

I don't use Tab Groups and have no need for them. I didn't even know they existed until my tabs starting disappearing.

When I close all tabs I get to the Tabs Group screen. Pressing the Tab Group button doesn't work at all. There I find my missing tabs. When I try to open them they don't open. They start to expand to full screen, but never get there. They just return to the small Tab Group size. I have to close Firefox and start all over.

I have no idea what causes my tabs to go into a new Tab Group, but it happens a lot. When I hit the '+' ("Open a new tab" button) sometimes the new tab is now my only tab and all my other tabs are in a Tab Group that I cannot access. It also happens when I switch to a different tab. I click on the tab and suddenly its my only tab. All others have been grouped and lost since my tab groups will not open.

I would like to completely disable Tab Groups. It's a feature that only causes me frustration.

Hello, I am running Firefox version 3.6.28 on Mac OS X, I cannot upgrade to any newer versions.

Recently, I have began encountering a problem where I cannot install any Add-ons. I get a window saying:

"Error

Firefox could not install the file at

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/.....(differs with the add-on being installed)

because: Signing could not be verified. -260"

I have read about the new signing rules but I am downloading from the Mozilla Add-on site and the Add-on's are for my version of Firefox and say that they are signed.

I started having this problem a little under a week ago after I installed the latest version of TenFourX, a Firefox alternative. It updated my Add-ons or extensions for its use and in the actual Firefox application deleted my bookmarks, thankfully not my backups. I didn't like it doing that so I uninstalled it and thats when I found that Firefox won't install any Add-ons anymore. I was able to install Add-ons a few months ago.

I have reinstalled Firefox, deleted the profile folder, and preferences, and I still have no luck, no matter what Add-on I try I get the same error. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

PS. I tried adding my Troubleshooting Information, but I could not as Firefox tried to install an Add-On to do so which gave me the same error.

I've just switched to Firefox as Chrome keeps lagging. I'm running Fedora 31 and the latest version of Firefox 76.0.1.

When I use the 2 fingered scrolling and take my fingers off the touchpad, the page keeps scrolling until it slowly slows down and eventually stops or hits the end of the page. It doesn't then stop when I place my fingers back on the touchpad, so it just carries on regardless to another part of the page. It's ludicrous as it just goes past whatever I'm trying to look at! If I keep my fingers on the touchpad it stays put but as soon as I take them off, it's off on it's jollies again.

Is there anyway to disable this? I've unchecked smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. I've never had Firefox behave like this before on any Linux distro.

I have always used Opera <12, so I can't get accustomed to FF28 and of course FF29, so I am trying to customize it. It takes me a whole day, but I haven't found that I need yet. Can you help me?

I need these features (like in Opera <12):

1) Auto complete text in address bar with google (or some other search systems). I tried some addons for that, but some of them works well, but they disable all of my keywords search from bookmarks (I have a lot of them), some of them don't disable keywords, but google search suggestions have more priority then keywords, so I need to use arrows or mouse for search with bookmarks-keywords, and e.t.c. Have you some addon for this function?

2) Is there any addon to collapse tabs into one like in Opera? I have tried some Tree-like tabs, but it is not one I am looking for. As alternative, I would use groups of tabs, but its default FF service is disgusting. I don't even know how much groups I have without push ctrl+shift+e... There is some "TabGroups Manager". It is good plugin for me, but its programmer drops it, as I can see in reviews.

3) How can I setup hotkeys? For example, there is key ctrl+` to open next groups of tabs, but then I set russian layout it doesn't work...

Also I want to disable ctrl+left click on link, and change key ALT to edit link, because I use it in other program.

4) Is there any plugins which makes hotkey to open last viewed tab, not go to next/prev tab? "Tab Mix Plus" plugin has such option for ctrl+tab hotkey, but if I use this, I haven't any got hotkeys to go next/prev tabs.

5) Is there any FF settings file or something else for blocking some images, sites, or subdomain forever (like sys-file "hosts" in windows guess)? For some reason I need to block some images on some sites, which I don't want to see. In Opera there is file "url-filter.ini".


And some additional question, which maybe isn't relative to plugins, or, maybe, even browser:

6) Is there any program, addon, plugin to get/automically make dump of all installed plugins, changed "config:about" settings, login+passwords filling and e.t.c (really all of browser settings).

I just updated to 57 and lost my tabs management (I used Tabs Mix Plus). I open a lot of tabs during the day from the address bar and one of the best features of FF was the ability to use a tabs manager to open new ones from there. It still opens new tabs from search, but not from the address or from bookmarks. I really don't want to switch to Chrome, so is there a way to make FF open these in new tabs? Yes, I can right click on a bookmark, but that's one more thing I don't want to have to do.

Menus on Firefox itself are displaying in my native language, when I've set them to English.

I've uninstalled all language packs that aren't English, even removed other languages in Windows settings to make sure Firefox displays menus in the language I want, but none of it worked. Already checked about:config and removed any traces of other languages. The settings page itself and other Mozilla webpages are all displaying in the correct language, but the application itself is not.

It started doing this after the most recent update, was working fine before. Only explanation is Firefox is using my location to set a language and completely ignoring my language settings. Should I just wait for it to be fixed?
