I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

I need help restoring my passwords. I saw a suggestion to refresh Firefox, and so I did, thinking it wasn't more than disabling the add-ons. I didn't realize it would eliminate my logins and passwords. Can someone help me find them? Otherwise I'm in some trouble.

Ever since I downloaded Firefox, I have been having an issue where when i click on a link from a search engine, it automatically opens the link in a new tab. I've looked around in the settings menu, but I couldn't find any way to alter it. The closest option would be to open link in new window, but I just want to open the link in the tab that I am currently in. I have tried going into about:config although I couldn't find any setting that successfully fixed the issue. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

Thanks! - T

There was a method described elsewhere to disable animated gifs by changing the image.animation_mode setting.

This setting appears to disable playing the animation, but the gif data is still loaded.

Is there some way to disable loading the gif at all?
