Every search I perform using google is being hyjacked by yahoo. I have read that many other users are having the same problem. I have tried to follow the steps to remove the add-on or extension but when I click on "add-ons" or extensions from the menu it just opens a new blank tab in my browser. When I click on search in the preferences menu, google is the only search engine checked in all of my selections. Please help me get rid of the yahoo search.

I want to erase or preferably disable the "Recently Bookmarked" functionality when you go to the bookmarks part of the library. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the Support, despite doing searches using several different search terms. It is a strange thing to have without being able to erase it or disable it, especially since bookmarks saved during "private window" searches show up there.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

AVG and mozilla thunderbird

AVG migrates my mozilla thunderbird from version 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 and I do not know how to avoid that. Version 60.5.3 is not compatible to 78.4.3 and I would have to start my thunderbird from new and would loose all my data (adresses, emails etc.). So I install version 60.5.3 from my downloads and all works fine again till AVG does it again. So either how can I tell AVG to leave my thunderbird in peace or how kann I migrate my data from 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 wich would of course be the better solution.

I love Firefox but I'm having some issues with some features.

The feature I'm commenting today is the downloading files feature.

In the settings, it says always ask where to download but this feature is not working properly.

Can you look at this?

Hey guys! I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I'm loving it except for the fact that download speeds are really slow. I have a internet speed of 360Mb/s and yet Firefox will download most stuff at ~500Kb/s. In other places like Steam my download speed is around 10% of internet speed (so today it would be around 36Mb/s) but Firefox is really slow. I did some research and used some console commands and uninstalled some extensions but to no avail. Thanks for your time!

When I am scrolling through a website, reading articles, etc., I get a message in yellow at the top of the page with the image of a robot telling me that a website has interrupted Firefox with an option to wait, or stop it. This happens frequently, especially if I am scrolling through news pages etc., deleting History and Cookies on my computer doesn't seem to help.

Hello Is there a way to sync from a device but not to it? I want to be able to see the bookmarks, tabs, history and possibly extensions on my work computer but I do not want my tabs, bookmarks or extensions from my personal devices to sync on the work computer. Is this possible? If not, is there a way, for example, if I use a separate account for work to send/merge the bookmarks and tabs to my personal account?

Hello,

I think I have discovered a hidden, rather small error in Firefox.

If I load my website: ECstep.com (the homepage of my site) and click the cholesterol picture or the trans fat picture, you should go to: https://ecstep.com/fat/#cholesterol or https://ecstep.com/fat/#trans%20fats. respectively, but instead you go to the bottom of the https://ecstep.com/fat/ after a temporary glimpse of the right position on the page. However, if you click the fatty acids picture on the homepage you are transferred to the correct place: https://ecstep.com/fat/#fatty%20acids and stay there.

I have tried Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge and these browsers do not produce the same problem. For that reason I think the problem lies in Firefox and not in my website code.

I hope this information is useful to you.

Best regards,

Erik Christensen
