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?

When I launch Firefox, the first click is ignored. So I must click it once again, it's a little frustrating...

I'm having this problem with Twitter, Gmail, and Google news, and I can open it in Facebook, StackOverFlow, and Tumblr with no problems.

This does not occur when opening in a private window or in windows opened using Ctrl-N. I checked in the "network" tab of the development tools and the transfer volume says "blocked".

Disabling Windows Security doesn't effect anything.(I don't install other security tools) What is the problem?

Some eighteen months ago I asked you how to make the scroll bars wider in Outlook. But at the time I was using Windows 7 and I cannot find your answer in my saved emails.

Now I am using Windows 10 and I would again like to widen the scroll bars in Outlook.com my email account.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Please remember I am old and not at all computer savvy and would be so grateful for a slow and easy to follow method.

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

For the last few weeks the Home Depot Canada site is rendered incorrectly with lots of extraneous code being displayed. If I go to this sample link:

https://www.homedepot.ca/product/tremclad-rust-reformer-340-g-aerosol-spray-paint/1000140398

What I see looks like this (same image is attached below):

http://i1.imgrr.com/17s/5043_hdfirefox.JPG

All other pages from that site behave in a similar way with Firefox, making it unusable. Other browsers handle the website without a problem. Since Firefox is my primary browser this is a pain. Any assistance appreciated. Thanks.

Hi all, All of a sudden icloud won't open. I just get the black band across the top with apple icon in top left corner, and white page with pin wheel spinning. I've tried a system refresh and uninstall and reinstall. I read that checking Java Script in Internet Explorer was a fix but that was fine. Thank you.

I have no add-on. When I set my default browser to be bing, sometime later is back to yahoo. Also my home, when I set it, it changes back to default. Both of these happen at the same time. I have changed them 100+ times. This just started about 6 months ago. I have used Firefox for years.

Suddenly Firefox is using Yahoo as the search engine. FF Version 79.0. Windows 10 totally up to date. The FF Option is set to use Google but if I enter anything either in the "url" area OR the Search area - it's using Yahoo search. Driving me nutz! (short trip) I've searched through regedit for yahoo and see nothing set to use it for a search engine. Just started happening.

Even when I open a new session or tab, the "URL area" has: "Search with Google or enter address" But if you enter anything - it uses Yahoo. At a loss, anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Steve

Hi, I am running the french FF 79.0 64 bit I just started to download the latest iso of debian 10.5 from the official Mirror and got the FF warning that it contains a virus. I am not sure if you have a team to check false positive as this is the official site and that it was released only yesterday https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-dvd/debian-10.5.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso and I am getting worried after I got this message.

The firefox menus and messages suddenly started to appear in Arabic (see image1). I followed the instructions on the Help section and checked the language definition there (menu/ Options/ general/Language). The only language defined there is English! No arabic anywhere, not even as an alternative (see image2). Pressing OK and restarting Firefox didn;t help either.


How do I get rid of the Arabic and return to English menus?

Thanks!

This function worked until a week ago, and still works perfectly on my laptop. It also works fine in Edge and IE. My homepage, My.Yahoo.Com is personalized with several content boxes, one of which is "Today" (news). Firefox either won't load the content, or it won't work properly (scrolling, etc.). I can no longer preview the individual news headlines. However, if I remove the non working content box and then add the it back, it works fine. Once I leave the page and then return, the same problem returns. My system is a desktop with WIN10 Pro 64-bit, 16gb, all latest updates, and Firefox v79.0.

In English : Hello, I use several hundred tabs (don't judge me ^^). And I would like to be able to list open tabs like you can do with bookmarks and history. You can indeed filter and select in bookmarks and history. For example, I would like to filter all open tabs containing "foo", and select the ones I want to close among those. And not to do it one by one. Is it possible ? Thank you.

En Français : Bonjour, J'utilise plusieurs centaines d'onglets (ne me jugez pas ^^). Et j'aimerais pouvoir lister les onglets ouverts comme on peut le faire avec les marque-pages et l'historique. On peut en effet filtrer et sélectionner dans les marque-pages et l'historique. Par exemple, j'aimerais filtrer tous les onglets ouverts contenant "toto", et sélectionner ceux que je souhaite fermer parmi ceux-là. Et non pas de le faire un à un. Est-ce possible ? Merci.
