Double page (side-by-side) viewing of PDF documents in Firefox (Windows), involves:

   go to View in the top menu, select Page Display, and choose “Two-Up”

How do you view such double pages in Firefox (Mac), since it seems not to have a "Page Display" facility?

Hi, on my current Firefox setup, I have a search engine shortcut in my Top Sites on a New Tab page. It's a quick one for Amazon, I can't figure out how to add others though. I saw reference to it in this old support issue, but I can't find how to do that anymore.

Every time I right click and select "Open Link in New Tab" Firefox is not opening this new tab next to the current tab. It instead moves this new tap to the end of all the tabs (of the current website). This is an annoying behavior, I have to go all the way to the end of the tabs to look at the name page that I just opened. How do I fix this behavior?

When I want to go to the NY Times, and i type "nyt" the address bar automatically populated with the rest of the URL "nytimes.com". When I do the same thing with gmail and "gmail" it runs a search on a search engine instead of completing the rest of the URL.

Why would it do this for one website and not another? How do I fix this, I use gmail all the time so its a bit of a time waster.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I'm currently developing a website that use user printer. And I'm looking for a hook that I can use to know user click the confirm or cancel in print dialog(or print preview window). the onafterprint method will trigger before user click confirm so I guess it's not an option.

Also, someone please tell me the topic describes my questions, I really don't know which topic is best for my question.

How to block the full screen function permanently at the same time that all menus are hidden, invisible, when you press the full screen button so that the video one gives a larger image without giving full screen. I have previously found a firefox program that could do that, but unfortunately I got it deleted.

Want to use the solution on a Win 10 PC, desktop PC and a screen of 1.5 m, i.e. 2 screens in one.

my hardware is very outdated already and i wanna try if my firefox runs better without any hardware acceleration like running fully on software.

i don't think that just simply disabling the hardware acceleration in the settings disables the entire hardware acceleration because there are way more about:config preferences which are related to hardware acceleration.
