Good day,

since yesterday the Evenote Web Clipper stopped working. When reinstalling the web clipper I get the regular screen:

"Welcome to Evernote Web Clipper!" where you have to confirm to enable web clipper. When clicking on "Allow" nothing happens. At the same time occasionally I got the message the Firefox was not directed to Evernote in teh right way.

What have I tried thus far - without positive outcome: - disabling and then enabling the web clipper in Firefox preferences - deleting and re-installing the web clipper - deleting Firefox, re-install Firefox and then re-install the web clipper

The web clipper is functioning fine under Safari.

May it be that the change of privacy policy by Evernote (dus May 15) has something to do with it ?

Thank you for your suggestions !


Best regards, René.

in settings I have turned off all enhanced tracking I could find but apparently it doesn't keep the browser from blocking stuff. I have to go up to the address line and turn it off there. I'm getting sick to death and if I can't stop this enhanced tracking I'm done with firefox. Before you say I need it, the browser is already set to delete all cookies etc and never remember history when I close it.

So how can i stop firefox from enhanced tracking stuff even though nothing is checked under the Custom box in settings?

I'm a user slowly trying to wean off of Chrome and getting accustomed to Firefox as a new primary browser. Something that I've relied on quite heavily in the past was the use of the address bar's autocomplete function to get me to frequently used websites - in this case, the Subscriptions page from YouTube. I have attempted to fiddle with the options available to me, but it seems that no matter what I do on this browser, I am unable to have said page show up when I type in "y" - instead, the homepage for YouTube is the first thing to show up, which I explicitly do not want. I cannot permanently remove this by way of pressing Shift + Del, as it always reappears. I am positive that I have visited the target page (Subscriptions) enough that it should show up as the top result, and I am also positive that I have not visited the YouTube homepage, as I intentionally remove it from my browsing history if I ever accidentally access it. I have tried turning on/off different combinations of settings in the Address Bar options menu under Browser Privacy, I have attempted bookmarking the page to have it rise to the top of the search settings, and I have attempted the use of an add-on which blocks websites from appearing in search results (which unfortunately did not extend to the search results directly from the address bar).

I am grateful that this minor irritant is one of my only outstanding gripes with the browser at the moment, though nevertheless, I would like to know if there is any way to further customize the address bar dropdown results to prioritize websites I have actually accessed before over their root domain.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hello,

When I visit any website, normally I would expect to be stored in crt+H (history) TAB. Yet, after visiting the website, it does not show up there.

Only after a few hours the visited website will show up in the history tab.

PS: This happens on the same device, the sync option between them works fine. After the few hours have passed and the websites have shown in the original computer, they will instantly sync across all other devices. And yes, I have checked the setting from top to bottom.

Any ideas how to deal with this or am I the only one with this problem?

I am pretty sure I'm the only person in the whole world with this problem because I couldn't find this issue in any search engines including Google.

I used that online site (I forgot name) to make a new Firefox theme (just fiddled around colours, images etc), but didn't commit and closed Firefox and forgot about it. Now everytime I open Firefox, that same theme takes over whatever theme I have selected or the default theme. I can change to other themes fine but when Firefox restarts, it reverts back to that theme. I don't understand why something I didn't even save is taking control like this. I don't want to delete/reset profile or re-install Firefox.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Can I trust the permissions section of an extension? If Firefox says an extension only has access to a single website, can I trust it or can an extension installed from the official website go rogue anytime and have access to any site I go to? I mainly use Firefox but I don't have the confidence to install so many add-ons because there's no indication that it's currently accessing the site or not. about:performance don't always tell the whole story and a working extension can not show itself there.

Other browsers can set which site has an extension can have access to. You also have a clear indication that it's currently ON by hovering at the extension icon where a "Has access to this site" message will appear. Hope we can have something like that in Firefox soon.

Can we maybe add a show once option or similar, in my case I use Tabliss which could also be the culprit -- but it seems to me disabling this notification should be an option or even better, have it actually show once.

Hi there,

I was wondering for the past few months if there is maybe someone at Firefox DEV/UI team who so much hates the Close multiple tabs menu item, that slowly but surely is getting to disappear?

  1. In the good ol days there was a separate menu item Close Tabs To The Right under the tab right click menu. Which was very useful and I used it a lot.
  2. Then this developer/designer from above, or some political committee decided that to remove that one and to put it as a submenu under a new menu item Close Multiple Tabs. That was outrageous, but I said well, maybe they have some weird reason behind this change so I should probably get used to the new version. In the end the Close Tabs To The Right menu item was still first in the list.
  3. Then since last week or two, I realized that this evil entity above decided to set the Close Tabs To The Right to be the second one in the list under the submenu! And this is too much! I've made like countless mistakes of closing the very important tabs on the left for the past few days by just wrongly assuming I'l clicking the right submenu item.

So guys and gals or aliens or whatever you are, what are you trying to do? Ruin the browser on purpose?

I'm using the Firefox for decades as my main browser, but it is getting worst and worst with every new release. And the reasons to still stay with it are diminishing. Which is sad...

Hello..............when I open a new Firefox browser tab, I see the heading Top Sites and a selection of eight links, most of them to the websites that I use frequently.

Needing 12 rather than eight, I found the facility to select a second row. But the second row also has eight links and some of them are not wanted.

Please tell me how I can select 12 links and stop at that number. If I right click the three dots in the top right corner of one of the unwanted links and then select Dismiss, another unwanted link replaces it.

I know this is a simple problem but it has defeated me. Please help.

And thank you..................Richard
