I have been requested to uninstall Adobe Flash player. I am still using Flash Player for some web sites and am ask to activate before video will work. At the end of the year I am told that Flash Player will no longer work. I asked one of the sites what I should do and they recommended using Chrome and html5 to watch video. I have also checked several sites to see what can be done with Firefox to continue watching video without changing browsers. I wish Firefox would put out a step by step process to fix this problem and allow me to use html5 in a Firefox browser. I am reluctant to uninstall Flash Player until I understand how to make html5 or whatever is required to continue to watch live stream and youtube. It looks like I have until January before Flash Player is inoperative. BTW, I have Firefox version 82, running Win10 with Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. Jay

When I hit cmd+l to select the URL bar, the first entry in the suggestion list is "Search with Amazon.com" with a pin icon to the left of it. I've searched all through the preferences and even about:config and any reference to Amazon is disabled. How can I get this to go away?

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

When I right click on the top bar of Chrome or any other window, I get a menu with items: Minimize, Maximize, Move, Resize, Always on top, Always on visible workspace, Move to monitor left, Close.

How do I get the system menu to appear also on Firefox, instead of this Firefox menu nonsense?

Make "This time, search with:" option submit the search without pressing Shift

Firefox 83 changed how the search engine options work: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I personally use the old behavior (submit immediately after clicking the option) much more often than I need to see the search suggestion. Is there an option to make the old behavior the default without pressing shift?

Thanks!

Hi, We use Firefox for different Web-Interfaces in our Studio. The used Computer is not (and never will be) connected to the Internet. From time to time we get a message in the upper right corner, that tells us, that Firefox is not able to make updates, because it’s not connected to the Internet. (What we allready know) Is it possible to stop this message from appearing? (It’s annoying, when there is no Keyboard or mouse available to click it away) Thanks for your help!

How to ensure that hyperlinks in pinned tabs open in new tabs?

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

Good evening, I downloaded firefox developer and I must say that I was very amazed by the wonderful browser you have created, the only problem is that when I want to go to view the credentials, any person can view the password (I use a window login password) .

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!

Hello, Sometime between Friday and today (Monday) Firefox has "hijacked" all of my pdf documents. I didn't ask for this and don't what this. I did find the setting that controls how Firefox handles downloads, it was set for open in Firefox, I switched to back always ask and restarted my laptop. All my existing files are still saved as Firefox HTML Documents. Additionally, when printing from the web files are still saving/printing as the Firefox HTML docs. How can I fix this?

Thank You, Kathy
