I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

Until the most recently Firefox update (7/1/20), when I clicked in my address bar, it would drop down and show the web sites I visited most frequently. Now, when I click in the address bar, it shows a bunch of random websites, some of which I only visited once a long time ago. How do I get the drop down menu back to how it was before the update? Thanks.

I only want to block adverts when they are intrusive and I feel bad about blocking acceptable ads. Most ad blockers will allow you to whitelist a website but I often will not notice that the ads are being blocked and thus not white list it. What I want is an ad block extension to Firefox that only turns on for new sites when I tell it to, although it should be able to remember which sites I want it on for. I can't think of the best way to explain this which is why I couldn't find a solution on the web.

Does anyone know of an adblocker with this feature and how do I turn it on?

Using Firefox on Linus Mint

Before the latest "upgrade" there were two options relating to tabs "Close Tabs To The Right" and "Close Other Tabs" Now there is an options marked "Close Multiples Tables" which means I have to make an extra, painful and unneccesary click before being able to close tabs.

Is there a way to return it to how it should be?

The Firefox browser on Windows desktop 100% redirects to an isolated and unusable bank login page. No other browser does this. Firefox Android does not do this. I tried clearing cookies / cache, disabled all extensions, safe mode without success. This is very frustrating when trying to use and support Firefox over Brave which never has these issues. In both cases below, the initial site nearly fully loads then redirects. Malware not an issue given very tight PC security and new install of Firefox.

Chase.com -> https://secure03a.chase.com/web/auth/logonbox?lang=en&fromOrigin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.chase.com#/logonbox/index/index

schwab.com -> https://lms.schwab.com/Login?clientId=schwab-prospect&startInSetId=1&redirectUri=https://client.schwab.com/login/signon/authcodehandler.ashx&enableappd=false

Both of the redirects contain only the login forms of the main page (eg "Login ID", "Password", "Login" button)

Hi all,

In the last couple of days, Firefox has stopped loading any web pages on start-up. When I look at the activity manager on my mac, I see a FirefoxCP WebExtensions task right at the top of the queue using 99 - 100% CPU. When I cancel this task, Firefox immediately starts loading pages as normal. There are also FirefoxCP Web Content and FirefoxCP Privileged Content tasks, but they don't seem to be causing any problems.

I'm running Firefox 78.0.1 on a mid-2012 MacBook Pro with MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6. My only extensions are Adblock Plus, Browsec VPN and Greasemonkey. My Plugins are OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0 and Widevine Content Decryption Module

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello,

The latest and greatest FF update did not import my FF bookmarks and saved PW. I followed all instructions on FF troubleshooting and forums and nothing seems to restore my data. I have a old FF data, but it's stating nothing has been backed up since 2018, however I've used FF daily. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

Hello, I am a Firefox user for a long time (before 1.0). I was seeing how the user base is going down lately. I wondered why. Now, I start to understand.

I've been using Linux for more than 20 years. Several flavors. Now, I use Sabayon and KDE Neon. I understand it's not a big user base for Linux in the world, for desktop.

Still, in the last years, I have had a BIG problem using Firefox under Linux, regardless the theme I chose, the Linux distribution, or its base distribution. The radio and the check boxes. Can't see any if the site does not have some override of the common controls. Can't filter when shopping, can't set addresses, can't pay.

I've found many people complaining about. The solutions provided were to try finding some theme or hack the site pages by inspecting elements and changing styles there.

Are you serious? Do you think the Linux users are all IT web specialists? How do you expect people adopt Firefox back? Even my son simply switched to Chrome due to this. Because it's practical.

I have tried so many things, none worked so far.

You blew your knee by changing the plugins API, that disturbed everybody's productivity, but people were patient, waited many years to have their stuff back, still not there yet. But missing such basic feature as common controls makes it unusable.

You must do something, as Google does, as Microsoft does, even Opera.
