Dear Community,

I recently switched back to FF from chrome and I really love it. There is one thing I cannot get to work though: I would like to have google as default search engine but without country redirect. In Chrome this is done by using https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr as search engine. What is the equivalent in FF?

Thanks in advance!

Why does using the 'back' button sometimes cause a page reload, but other times does NOT cause a page reload in the same app?

I've noticed this on various sites, but I'll use YouTube as an example. I'm sitting on my YouTube 'home' page and I see a set of 'suggestions'. I click on one of the suggested vids and watch it. Afterward, I hit the 'back' button in the browser (there is not an embedded back button in the app). Sometimes hitting the 'back' button takes me back to the same YouTube page with my suggested videos and I can watch another. Other times, hitting the 'back' button causes a new page to load and I now have a new set of suggested videos displayed. This behavior is not consistent - sometime the page load occurs, other times the same page appears. I cannot detect a pattern to this. What's annoying about this is that there may have been more than one thing I wanted to view on the initial 'suggested videos' section of the original page displayed. However, after watching one of the vids and hitting the 'back' button, if a new page loads, I now no longer have access to those other suggested vids I wanted to watch. As I noted earlier, I've seen this behavior in other apps too. I don't know if this is the right place to ask about this, or if it's a browser thing at all, I'm just trying to understand what's causing this behavior and figure out if there's anyway for me to mitigate it.

I am using the current version of Firefox and when using a particular website (Microsoft CRM Online) I get frequent popup dialogs . The issue I have is Firefox will ask me (in a dialog) if I want to "prevent this website from creating additional dialogs". I understand the reasoning behind this, but I don't want it. I would prefer that the dialogs behave in the same way they do in other browsers.

Can I disable this feature either at the browser

I just installed Firefox 63.0 and discovered that the leading (inter-line space) between Bookmarks items has been increased.

Was this intentional? I find it an annoyance because I now have to scroll down more to see lists that easily fit on the screen vertically before. And the change adds nothing to readability.

I am using Firefox version 64.0 build ID 20181206201918 on Windows 10 version 1803 build 17134.407.

When visiting 4chan.org images in the popular threads section will not load however when visiting 4channel.org the images in the popular threads section load fine.

I briefly looked at the source code for both pages and I am unable to see any difference as to why this is happening.

When I visit the same sites in Chrome there are no problems.

The troubleshooting I have gone through so far is to refresh firefox (that made no difference), and change the names for the following folders:

%appdata%\Mozilla\Extensions

%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox

%LocalAppData%Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

That also made no difference.

Can anyone replicate this problem? If so, is it a bug in Firefox when encountering certain code?

I have attached screen shots of the websites in question showing you what I am seeing.

edit: So I forgot to mention that after renaming the folders for Firefox, effectively resetting it and removing all customization, I immediately tried the web pages in question making no changes to Firefox.

Look, this is a huge problem because this message isn't just showing up on my Fire Fox browser, it's also on my TOR browser. I'm not seeking to fix TOR here, I'm just saying that it's on there too and TOR uses Fire Fox - this message appears nowhere else on my PC or browsers. My system was just purchased brand new in Feb. This message did not display when I dl either browser. I've NEVER downloaded ANY Avast or anything like it, I use Windows Defender and that's it. I'm not a techie - but I'm like really neurotic over hard drive space - I don't download ANYTHING unless I absolutely HAVE to with the exception of browsers. I only download those from their official websites though. I do play some games, I've only downloaded games from Steam, Origin, and Utomik. I do have all of their clients on my PC. Other than that, there's been NOTHING I've dl. I only included that info because I thought it might help. Can someone PLEASE help with this. I tried to look at the registry, I'm not seeing anything that seems amiss but I need more specifics - I've read the other questions and answers on this - but I don't know HOW to change anything to see if it helps. I already am scared to death to touch the registry.

Trying to solve issue for a friend. Occurred while his wife was using the computer so has no idea how this happened. When he opens Firefox, the web page is displayed off to the right side of the monitor. This does not occur with IE or Google Chrome. He is only able to see the very left side of the web page and unable to drag the page to the left. I have attempted to un-install and re-install Firefox and that does not solve the issue. His OS is Windows 8. resolution is 16810x150 which is irrelevant because it does not happen with IE or Google Chrome. Can anyone assist?

Dear Firefox,

Since the most recent update I am experiencing problems in being able to save pictures. I find an image in Google Image Search, click on it and go to save .... however it does not save. The process even prompts me to select the folder I want it saved in, the name I want to give the file and so on. I do all of these things - but there is no picture there when I go to the folder. I have tried saving to different folders but no luck. This does not happen in all cases, only on some pictures.

I find the only way i can save the picture is to click on View Image and then prompt it to save. However as my work involves finding lots of images online, this is adding several steps to the process. It is also annoying when I have to save 50+ pictures and then go back and find that maybe half-a-dozen or so are not there

Firefox version 63.0.1 on Windows PC. This week, Firefox is slow to load all web pages. After pressing enter in the address bar or clicking a link, approximately 3-5 seconds will elapse before any page information is displayed. During this time, the bouncing ball is in motion where the favicon is usually displayed on the tab next to the page title. Then the page will visually load very quickly, while the bouncing ball continues for another 3-5 seconds before indicating the page load is complete.

This happens consistently on all webpages. The same behavior is observed in Firefox safe mode. Chrome loads pages without delay on this computer. This is a relatively new behavior which I've noticed within the past week. I'm on a 100Mb/s connection with very low latency and a fast DNS response (< 5 ms).
