Hello, I personally dislike the new address bar (also known as Megabar), mainly because it is enlarged without any user intervention, even if I only want to open a bookmark without typing anything in there.

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

Hi!

I've added a new device and am trying to synch it (my new laptop). My account shows everything synched (history, bookmarks, log-ins). However, none of my previous history is showing up. None of my old bookmarks are visible.

Either something didn't work right with synching, or (much worse) all of my Firefox bookmarks, history, and log-ins have been lost. I have no way of knowing what the problem is, since everything shows as being correctly synched on my laptop when I view my Firefox account.

Please advise.

Thanks!

Jeff

Hello, over the past week, a website that always downloaded will not open. It's a problem with my laptop, not with the site itself or any other user. I've done everything the "help" articles suggest, but I still can't access the site. It's a job site, so it's imperative that I log back on. Any ideas?

Ok so this really has me pulling my hair out. My old laptop died the other day and so I bought a new one and put my old drive in an enclosure. I had my Firefox heavily customised (over the past eight years) and I don't know how to transfer it over. It used to be that I would just copy the users over and everything would be cool (XP to W7 didn't give me this problem) but it's not working this time. My guess is that it's because my old laptop used Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My desktop monster uses Windows 10 Pro but this new laptop uses Windows 10 Home (which is just awful compared to Pro) so there's probably an issue with how the user profiles are handled. I didn't have a Firefox account because I didn't want every machine I use to have the same Firefox setup. This was because my desktop and laptop are used for different purposes entirely.

Does anyone know how to import the settings from a Windows 7 profile to a Windows 10 profile? So far, I've had no luck whatsoever. Thanks!

My company have a shorthand for company links, known as go links. They are shorthand for long internal llinks so instead of typing full url we can just say go/jira, go/firefox etc.

In older version of firefox when I used to type such links, after finish typing "go/" It used to give option to open as url not a Google search but in recent release it doesn't give me that option anymore but instead directly goes to Google search which is super annoying.

Chrome handles this very well as its been three years to switch to firefox I really dont want to switch back to Chrome but this feature will kind of forcing me to move back as firefox making things harder.

Hope attached screenshots will help.

Thank you!.
