Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

How do I disable the englarged address bar when I focus on it?

As of Firefox 75, the address bar plumps out in an "enlarged" state. This is a new feature of Firefox 75, announced here: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/04/07/latest-firefox-updates-address-bar-making-search-easier-than-ever/

I'm wondering: how can I revert this back to how it was? I don't want it to plump out since it partly covers up the surrounding UI elements. I have a muscle memory for sometimes minimizing this bar with Escape, then clicking one of my bookmarks or one of the UI elements. I haven't had an issue seeing the address bar before, so this new feature is a detriment to me.

Thank you

The opening para of the home page of my website is written in "Georgia Italics' font. In every browser except Firefox the text is displayed in that font. Browsed in Firefox is appears in an extreme version of a similar font but awful to look at. This happens on both my Mac and Windows 8. How can I get Firefox to display the font that was intended?

I am unable to connect to the following URL https://lakmshaegov01.msha.gov/UserManagement/ChangePassword.aspx. All other browsers seem to work.

I ran an SSL Labs test and it confirms that all tested versions of Firefox fail. I would like to know if anyone can spot something that might allow me to connect by temporarily relaxing the security checks in Firefox for this site.

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

A few months ago, I began to use Firefox again, and downloaded the latest version. I have windows 10. After the download, it asked me if I wanted to donate money for an ad blocker. So I gave $7.00 and got the ad blocker. It worked for maybe a week, and then it disappeared. I can find no way to enable it again. Please help.

I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?

With the red boxes, I made sure that it was A4. It is displayed correctly in other browsers, but not in Firefox. See the screenshot. What can I do?

I did not make any changes to options. When I started today, I went to find a website from history and all my history from the day before was gone. AND have of the list space was full of bookmarks. How could bookmarks be in history? Why is my history gone?

Is there some keyboard command that was done by accident to cause this? This has never happened before.

My dad uses Chrome not Firefox. So anything he does should not affect my settings.

Is there a way to fix this? or to keep it from happening in the future?

I can't open a Spotify URI from Firefox But I can open it from command line using the --uri option. As in, this works fine from the terminal:

spotify --uri="spotify:artist:6OqhFYFJDnBBHas02HopPT"

and whatever Firefox is doing just launches Spotify without navigating to the thing indicated by the URI

Is there, perchance, a simple file edit I can do that will fix this for me?

Ever since Firefox upgraded to version 75, using it has become impossible to use via RDP on Windows Server 2008 R2. The behavior is like Firefox completely hogs down the machine, but more likely seems to be impacting the refresh rate of the RDP session. With Firefox open, mouse begins to trail and button clicks and movement stack up and execute as much as a 5 minute delay at times. I saw a similar report, but not 100% the same, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278453

Here is what I know so far...

* Specific to Windows Server 2008 R2, tested on multiple VMs on multiple hosts
* Issue not present on Windows Server 2016, Windows 10, or Windows 7
* Size of Firefox window affects performance, leading to validate RDP refresh issue.  If half the screen is Firefox vs the whole screen, the lag is lessened
* Safe Mode immediately resolves the issues
* Safe Mode with all Add-Ons re-enabled still resolves the issue
* Hardware acceleration on or off has no impact
* Downgrading to Firefox 74 resolves the issue (but this could also be because it made me a new profile)

What other details can I provide? Is there anything else I can try? Does this qualify to report a bug on bugzilla?
