I have firefox set up so that it does not suggest anything except for my bookmarks.

So when I type in the address bar the only suggestions that come up are my bookmarks, no other suggestions.

For example when I need to translate something quick and want to go to the bookmarked page for google translate as soon as I type "trans..." it will suggest the link, Which is what I want and expect and is efficient.

But as has happened before, now I get a random suggestion coming up first so I have type more just to get to the same result otherwise I end up following a link to a suggested site which is at best aggravating.

I checked my seeting and there is one box ticked in the search suggestion settings that I cannot disable. I have tried and it always comes back.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

How do I get my sync data restored to a previous state? Firefox has a programming issue and I need a staff member from there to help me...

I have Firefox 107.0.1 installed on my windows 11 22H2 OS Build 22621.900 and I had around 63 tabs or so open. I ALWAYS click the "X" in the top right corner and then it brings up the "close xx" tabs window. Then when I reopen firefox I can click history>restore previous session. Anyways I closed regular firefox.. because a friend of mine wanted to look up something but not interfere with my open tabs so we opened firefox private browsing.. thinking it wouldn't interfere with normal firefox... Yet when I went back to normal firefox and tried to go to history>restore previous session it was grayed out. So how do I get a hold of Mozilla to restore my account and stuff to 12/01/2022 at around 3am CST? Also how do I let them know that firefox private browsing has this issue with messing up open tabs in non-private browsing firefox? This is severely annoying and disappointing. I have tabs open for a reason and they should all stay there until I close them. But now they're gone and I wish to have them back. So if someone could let me know how to get a hold of a Mozilla/firefox staff member so they can revert my account that would be awesome. Just to be clear I was able to replicate the issue by having a few tabs open in normal firefox and then closing it.. then opening private browsing firefox and closing it. You should be able to go to history>restore previous session in normal firefox to be able to get your tabs back.. but are unable to do so after opening and closing private browsing firefox. Why is this? I thought they were separate and shouldn't interfere with each other in this way?

I would really appreciate if the Firefox Password Manager would time-out and ask me again the primary password every x minutes (lets say 10 minutes, better if configurable). I use Firefox in my home PC, I have two kids (11 and 13 years old) and they frequently use my Linux/Firefox session for their school necessities and leisure time. The problem is that often they end using my session and they have access to all my usn/pwd inside de Password Manger (Internet router configuration, Parental Control configuration, ecc.) My kids have their own Linux profiles and Chrome profiles for school but they usually get to use my own PC/web-browser sessions for practical reasons inside my family.

Thank you very much for your support. Hernan M. Vago

Hello,

I have set my OS and Firefox language to English. While the settings, menu, etc. are in English, various alerts and popups which let me save/upload a file (please take a look at the attached picture) are in the local language.

Does anyone know how to fix it? It doesn't occur with other browsers.

Thank you.

'Read aloud' function: how to organize it for my html files?

In Firefox I see and can use the button 'On|Off read mode F9' on this page, where I write the question.

But when I open my page, this button is absent and F9 doesn't work. (for example, this one: http://accelerometers.000webhostapp.com/ ) Also I want to get 'Read aloud' possibility for txt files (I edited them and save as html files) What should be done to provide this possibility?

Note: in MS Edge my html files are read aloud.

Best regards, Vadim

I am trying to change the keyboard shortcut of the Tools → Downloads menu (opening up the downloads).

I accidentally click that sometimes and it is quite annoying, so I thought I'll switch the shortcuts to a more complex one to avoid these mistakes ^+⌘+J and when I remap that in the Keyboard preferences, the new shortcuts shows up in the menu, and it starts working but the old shortcut ⌘+J is still working.

I believe that is a bug in Firefox.

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

I'm trying to setup Firefox on my new tablet. It's installed but when I try to login to my Firefox account, I discovered that I have forgotten my Firefox password. When I access my Firefox account on one of my older PCs, I can see that the password was changed on 2021. What do I need to do in order to sign in on the new tablet without losing all my synced data? I THINK all I need to do is to sign on to my Firefox profile on one of my older PC's and say that I forgot the password which will result in a password reset. But I thinks that's OK because a new sync account will be created and then I just have to signon from all my other devices using the new password. Is that correct?

I much prefer Firefox to Chrome and others but whenever I use the google search function in the search bar, ALL the results seem to be USA-based. 100% useless for me, an English-speaking European living between France and England. What do I need to do to my Firefox browser to tell it once and for all that I am not American and nor am I interested in American content?!? TIA KB

I was trying to sync my settings to my new laptop with my login and PW (which was correct) and it kept telling me it wasn't right. So, I decided to change it but my MFA on Google for Firefox got wiped once I switched phones. I had to use a backup code to get in and want to re-enable the MFA.

Unfortunately, and for no real reason, it won't work. I scan the QR code in Google Authenticator, it sets up and gives me a code, I enter the code, and then it tells me it's the wrong one. I even tried to do it by manually setting it up and it made no difference. Now I can't re-enable it because it won't work right.

What the actual hell is going on here, guys?

Hello all, just yesterday I noticed my Yahoo inbox was not fully loading and even when it finished loading, I have had the same few messages showing, a series of just gray bars below that, no ads, etc. and will not allow me to delete or perform commands. When I check the box by an email it simply takes me to the email, as happens if I do so before it's fully finished loading. It is as if it is still trying to load somewhere in the ether land, since there is no indication on my toolbar that it's working. I've tried everything except removing it from Firefox. I thought it was my internet service but all is fine with other sites and Yahoo mail works fine on Safari. It's never happened before. Many thanks for your help.

Hi Everyone, My Bank has suddenly decided that ALL cookies must be allowed before letting their customers in -- a requirement with which I wholly disagree. My FireFox is set to block anything that moves, and supported by Ad Blockers and Ublock too. Is there a way in which I can configure FF to allow me into the Bank site without having to change my "secure" settings every time? I am no computer genius - so please make it simple for me.

Thanks everyone.
