When I try to use the find bar, it shows up black and won't search for text. It doesn't even say "phrase not found." I tried searching for words I knew were in the webpage and that I could see and it still wouldn't work. The quick search bar does the same. I tried restarting with add-ons disabled and nothing happened. I'm kind of at a loss at what to do.

Here's an image of the find bar if that helps any.

Is there a simple way to block a website from ever loading without downloading special addons like Blocksite, just type in the website name and it can not load?

I have a couple of websites that keep popping up from time to time unexpectedly. There must be a way to simply add websites names e.g. www.ihatetheseguys.net to someplace on my Firefox browser, something like a BANNED LIST. And once added that website can never open on my browser again.

This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do.... it would be like the exceptions list we can access in options where we add websites to a list and they are allowed to open, but this would be the opposite.

I have searched around and it seems there are some add-ons/apps/programs I can download and run on my computer, one called BLOCKSITE. But I dont want to download anything. This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do on the option page. Simply add a BANNED LIST where we can type in websites and when they try to nope they get noped away to oblivion.

One of the reasons I prefer Firefox to Chrome is that when I right-click on a link, I can open the link in a new tab.

I usually read news in Chrome because, on some sites, I open 20 new tabs without moving from the main news page. I can then move to the tabs, read one, close it, move to the next, etc.

I would like to move my news reading to Firefox, but I would like to be able to choose whether (or not) to open a new tab at the time the tab is being opened.

Is this possible?

IS there a way to disable Switch to Tab PERMANENTLY? IT would be SLIGHTLY less annoying if it REFRESHED the old tab when it brought you to it. But for some really dumb reason, it doesn't. I don't want to have to remember to press Alt every time because I literally can't think of a single time I would ever want it.

Ok, it is a pretty simple question.

"How do I force FF to reload a page?"

Searching I find:


Windows/Linux:

   Hold down Ctrl and click the Reload button.
   Or, Hold down Ctrl and press F5.

Which is not right from what I see.

If I press CTL and the reload button (which I take as being the one which looks like a near complete circle with an arrow turning clockwise.

It doesn't mention that it also opens a new tab.

However!

Pressing <CTL> <F5> it refreshes the page. Can't confirm that it is a forced reload.

Can someone help me clarify (and maybe fix the discontinuity in what does what?

Hello! I've got a problem since a week in Firefox, all my sessions and settings on websites are not saved.

For exemple, when I want to use YouTube, I first get connected, then I turn on the dark mode. Until I close Firefox, it will save those settings, even in new tabs. But if I close and reopen Firefox, those settings are gone. I need to connect again on Youtube, and dark mode is no more activated.

Same issue on all websites except for those which were saved before the first time I saw the problem. But if I close my sessions on them, then it will be the same.

I tried to completely remove (program and userdata) Firefox and install it again, still the same. I tried to clear the cache, still the same. And I tried to reinitialize Firefox with its own function, still the same.

So I'm wondering if someone would help, because Firefox is my favorite browser and I can't get used to another.

Thanks, Tun.

PS : My english may be weird, I'm sorry for that.

Hi.

I was looking how to restore the old ctrl+tab behavior and found https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241201#answer-1174594 . This answered my first half of the question.

However, I do find the new ctrl+tab behavior useful, however not as a replacement of the old behavior, but as an additional feature.

Is there any way I can have ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab behave in the old way, while binding a custom keybinding to the new recently used order tab behavior? (say, e.g. binding it to win+tab)

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!
