The use-case where this happens most for me is when I want to open two different email inboxes at once:

  • I type "mail" into the search bar in a new tab.
  • The autocomplete suggestions show from my history the two email inboxes.
  • I middle click one of the links
  • Firefox opens the link in a new tab, I am still focused on the new tab (this is wanted), but the search bar is cleared, and I must now type "mail" again to bring up the suggestions again.

The previous browser I used did not do this, and coming over from that browser it makes it quite annoying to have to type "mail" twice. I do not want to put the links into bookmarks and access them that way.

I would like for Firefox to be able to: Warn me when closing multiple tabs without restoring my previous session.

I have researched online and tinkered with the browser's settings and I could only manage to make Firefox warn me when closing multiple tabs when I also had the option to Restore previous session enabled. I hope that something can be worked out in about:config.

Does anybody know where the ID: 308046B0AF4A39CB comes from?

If you use a Windows 10 1909 64 Bit and you can find this in the installs.ini and in the profiles.ini of users, if you have a Firefox ESR 64 Bit in Version 78.10.0 installed. The INI-Files looks like this:

Installs.ini: [308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

Profiles.ini: [Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

[Profile0] Name=default-esr IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

This ID can vary if you have a 32 bit ESR-installation as well and the only place I could find it is in the registry

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\TaskBarIDs] C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox=308046B0AF4A39CB

But also here it differs sometimes.

I need to know where the ID comes from and if I can rely that if this ID is used, I will always address the Firefox ESR 64 Bit no matter which version.

I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.

There is a website that I use for work a lot and I have it on my bookmarks for easy access. The url for this website is https://_________________.com/html5 When I start typing the first 3 letters after the "https://" part, the address bar auto fills but it only does so up to ".com" and omits the "/html5" part so the website does not load correctly if I hit enter. I then have to use more keystrokes to get the complete url which is super annoying since I have to use this website multiple times every day. Is there a way to force firefox to auto fill the whole url without omitting the last part ?

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

Hi,

After losing my session history and bookmarks from using firefox's "forget last 5 minutes" feature on accident, I used shadowcopyview to create a backup of my old profile. Now, after two reinstalls, I still cannot recover my session or bookmarks, even when replacing the old profile entirely.

JeffersonCher's wonderful scrounger has helped me to recover from a similiar blunder in the past, but this time, attempting to recover the session from a recovery file gave me 3 websites I haven't visited in 2 years and an error message when attempting to recover the bookmarks.

Anything you can provide would be a big help: I am very confused on how to really proceed.

Thanks!

Windows 10 quickbar icon corrupts on new firefox update

yet the icon i keep on my desktop stays fine. is it an issue with opening firefox and then pinning that icon? when the new version comes out, the old link is bad? been going on for a couple years. but now its just annoying.

I can't simply copy the icon from my desktop to the quickbar. Going to end up erasing the old icon, stopping the process.... opening a new firefox and pinning it again. but its only good until the next update. any ideas?
