I'm running FF 122.0. I've set default search engine to DuckDuckgo. Won't do it. Then I deleted Google from the list of search engines in settings, after first unchecking it. When I open FF it still defaults to Google - why and how do I stop this? I'm in Canada if that makes a difference (it defaults on startup to www.google.ca). One time it loaded duckduckgo but then google.ca took over - that was when I'd unchecked google and before I deleted it completely. Now it just goes straight to google, help!

macOS (and I assume Windows and Linux as well) supports local URL schemas. For instance, Apple supports the "applefeedback://" URL as a way to launch the macOS Feedback Assistance app.

If I have a link to this on a web page, or if I put it in a bookmark, Firefox will ask for confirmation and will then launch Feedback Assistant. This part works great.

But if I type that URL into the location bar, Firefox always sends it to my configured search engine. It doesn't recongize it as a valid URL. And in the popup list of suggestions, there is no option to just go there and not search for it. See the attached screen shot.

I don't want to disable location-bar searching altogether, because it is really useful, but I think there should be a way, on a case-by-case basis, to tell Firefox that I really want it to treat the entire text as a URL. The simplest approach is probably to have an extra row on the popup suggestion list that I can click on to open the text as a URL or produce an error if there is nothing in Firefox or the OS that can resolve it.

Hopefully this won't be too difficult to support. I think it would be extremely useful.

I am logged into my Mozilla account on four devices: Laptop Linux, Desktop Linux, Desktop Windows, Phone Android. However, when I try “Send tab to device” or list the devices in the account settings, the two Linux devices are not shown separately, so I can’t send a tab from Laptop Linux to Desktop Linux or vice versa. In fact, when I edit the Device name on either of the Linux device, that name will also be shown on the other device.

How is this possible? How can I disentangle the two devices?

I cannot find a way to add websites to the location permissions in Firefox Windows PC. I can easily get to the "Location Permissions settings " but there is no way to add, only remove. When I display the access icon in the URL address bar, it shows " you have granted the website additional permissions" , but the site does not display in the FF Settings-Location Box, and the target website does allow me access based on location. Is there another area where location is restricted? would appreciate some help, thx.

Hi there, I saw a similar problem and tried everything there (Cache/Cookies etc.) but I still have this problem:

When I access firstdirect.com I get the page loaded but none of the buttons work? All the headings and the Online Banking link are dead.

I tried Troubleshooting mode and lo and behold, it worked, and now it's OK, but.... I use In Private browsing for Finance stuff and this is where I can't get it to work???

Once I got the login page (in normal browsing) I copied the URL, pasted it into the Private tab and it worked perfectly, so t looks like the problem is somewhere in the www.firstdirect.com welcome page?

Tried Edge and that worked too and First Direct are unaware of any login problems, so any ideas please?

I'm baffled! Thanks all, Chris.

Firefox is my default browser. I clicked on a link in my email and it came up on Edge, and asked permission to open in Edge. I thought it was just for that link, but ever since, all my links are opening in Edge. I checked my computer settings and confirmed that Firefox is my default browser, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Just like the Android version of Firefox does! It opens the new tab(s), but load each tab at visit!

Desktop Firefox also does this at [History / Restore Previous Session]. All the previously opened tabs are opened again, but each of them only loads at visit.

This is I would like to have as default behaviour with newly opened tab(s) in Firefox. > Tab opens. > It hasn't loaded yet! > At visit it loads the content.

PS: I tried, but didn't work: > about:config _ browser.sessionstore.restore*demand (switch) > Addon _ LoadTabOnSelect 3 (But it worked weirdly.)

Good evening,

I have a new laptop, from the same brand and make as my old one, both are HP pavilion with the same configuration and only 2 years in between! I have been trying on and off for weeks, to synchronise my FF browser, with all open tabs, history and bookmarks, but all to no avail. I do everything the sync instruction tells me to do, but nothing happens. I am getting desparate, because my old laptop has a problem (hardware, nothing that could prevent synchronising) and is still under warranty, but time is running out!

Will anybody help here, and how do I receive answers?

Dear Community,

when using a virtual machine with firefox, during navigating in a coding environment or pressing the "arrow up" key in a command window to re-run the last code, the "Passwörter verwalten" icon appears.

In english it is probably called "manage passwords". That thing is driving me crazy. How can I deactivate that it appears, when pressing the arrow key?

When Content Type PDF is set to Open in Firefox in Settings, some hyperlinks (see 'Download PDF' on https://arxiv.org/abs/2402.00923) will navigate to the hosted PDF without downloading to my computer. Others (see 'Download PDF' on https://www.overleaf.com/project/65c142c6d78ec5a8a34636b0) will download to my device then open the downloaded file in browser. (I am also interested in what causes this distinction in the first place.)

When it is set to Save File, both types of links will download to my device without opening.

In my experience with other browsers, the behavior is similar to the first case, but downloaded files are not opened upon finishing downloading, only doing so if the file is clicked on in the download menu during or after downloading. Is there any way to replicate this behavior?

For the last few weeks ive been having difficulties with youtube, at first it was only the comment section that would load forever without stopping, but lately when ive decided to sit down andtry and solve this, i noticed that i cant access my account nor any notifications either. And even if i type in my name and go into my account manually, there are no links nor any menues available, everything is black except the videos.

I cant even sort the videos to the "latest upload" without the page start loading forever without stopping. I can access everything with other browsers though, OperaGX, but thats not my main browser, so i dont want to switch over to Opera whenever i want to use youtube.

Does anyone else have the same problem? And what do i need to do to fix this? (I cant even find a way to contact the support to get help nowadays for some reason..)

This is a problem that I have since months, still unresolved. If I try using a different browser (like Brave) it works, so it's a Firefox issue or Apple issue with Firefox.

Basically if I go to https://web.goodnotes.com/login and I login via iCloud, a window opens up which asks me iCloud email and password, then it asks me for the sms code received, then I put it and then I get a BLANK page (the image that I uploaded) with in up right corner "Login performed as my name". And then nothing happens. But instead with Brave it opens up the Apple authorization to accept the Browser and then I finally can enter in Goodnotes web. With Firefox I'm stuck in that blank white page.

Since it's an issue that I have since months, I think I should report this and here I am.
