When will option browser.urlbar.maxRichResults work as it used to?

I want about 30 - i.e. a full screen's-worth of Rich Results. No problem once - not now.

Something is seriously FUBAR when a once-working parameter can be changed - but no longer has any effect.

Nothing to do with Top Sites, I believe. I know how to change the balance of what is offered.

I just want parameter browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to work again.

How to ensure that hyperlinks in pinned tabs open in new tabs?

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

When I right click on the top bar of Chrome or any other window, I get a menu with items: Minimize, Maximize, Move, Resize, Always on top, Always on visible workspace, Move to monitor left, Close.

When I right click on the top bar of Firefox, I get a menu with items: Pin to overflow menu (grayed out), Remove from toolbar (greyed out), Menu bar, Bookmarks toolbar, Customize...

How do I get the system menu to appear also on Firefox, instead of this Firefox menu nonsense?

How can I change URL Bar settings back after FF83 update? Bookmarks & History show up inside URL bar. Also have to click twice when switching between search engines

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

When I initially set up Firefox Monitor, I added 5 email addresses to this service.

After a couple of weeks I would like to add another email address. However, I am not able to find a field to add a new email address.

When going to monitor.firefox.com and logging in, all I can see is the dashboard showing numbers of email addresses and breaches. The button to manage email addresses only leads to a page where I can delete the existing addresses, but not inserting a new one.

Maybe it is just too obvious and I'm blind. Please help.
