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

Firefox home search fake editable inconvinience

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

Extra annoyance with "script not responding" pop-up dialog window

Following other support threads, I managed to turn off the incredibly annoying yellow bar warning of "a script slowing down the browser". But Firefox then defaulted to displaying those messages as they occur in separate error message dialog boxes.

Again, following other threads, I have managed to make a decent amount of them not display by increasing the time Firefox waits before popping up the error message. I have also determined (from looking at the script name that displays in the error box) that the remaining scripts originate at whatever site I am browsing at the time, so at least my very few add-ons are not to blame.  :)

I probably can live with those remaining few, except that if a script fails and I happen to be in another tab when that happens, Firefox annoyingly switches focus to that tab. It becomes even more of a nuisance if I was typing in the tab Firefox switched away from.

Is there a setting in about:config that will prevent Firefox from displaying an error message unless and until the user has selected that tab his/herself for focus? (Or if not, could the developers code that into a future release?)

Firefox Design. Continously and automatically backing up Sessions to an additional file and folder of my choice

A problem I'm not sure Firefox has addressed or resolved in all the years I've been using Firefox - even after it changed its programming, and the way it saves session (o… (read more)

A problem I'm not sure Firefox has addressed or resolved in all the years I've been using Firefox - even after it changed its programming, and the way it saves session (or even bookmark) backups to the profile folder, is: whenever Firefox is forced to shut down after a computer software issue (like freezing, blue screen, extreme sluggishness, etc.), and we presume (with fingers crossed) that Firefox will open back up with all our tabs intact for the past 7 - 20 days, but instead opens with them all missing and forever gone - even after immediately and instinctively proceeding to the profile folder (before shutting down Firefox) to recover them using Mozilla's recovery steps to replace the "places.sqlite" file, I periodically find that every single one of the recovery files has been re-stamped with the same date and time (and missing data) as the new places.sqlite file.

So I hope and pray, that because this issue happens to thousands of Firefox users over time - no matter what Firefox version update their using (because it has happened in several versions for me), that a terrific way to prevent forcing users to find and use a great sessions manager addon that saves tabs (with all their history - that won't also crash or easily be written over), or forcing users to constantly worry and remind themselves to manually backup the required profile files daily, or having to remember minimally, to backup the profile files "before" opening Firefox after a crash, (which seldom happens), that Firefox offers its users the option to set Firefox up to continuously and automatically save a complete new (additional) set of backup files to a different folder of the user's choosing, with the extra option to save a "set" number of session backups, where Firefox can't access them upon opening. Imagine how much anguish, anger and self loathing Firefox will eliminate in the world with this one simple option.

Here's another wish-list item. If Firefox could present the list of open Firefox windows that appear at the top right of the screen whenever hovering the mouse over the Firefox icon in the taskbar, I wish for the popup list to permanently nudge down so it "never" covers up my open tabs in each of the open window's (which is how I know I determin which of the numerous windows to navigate). And of course the list should self adjust whenever I turn the "Menu Bar" on or off. Thank you, in advance, for considering these two important items toward the Firefox experience.

If you're wondering why I haven't moved on to the latest version. It's because I all too "often" encounter my valuable "business" addons no longer working, and the miserable task of trying to go back to the previous version, or trying to find new addons that work half as good. Sometimes all of my addons disappear. I also wish I could turn off Firefox's constant reminder, to upgrade since I've asked twice before, with no Mozilla reply. Thank you again.
