I have a new Windows 10.0 Pro computer and installed lates version of fire fox. Now I try to implement automatic "open link in new tab" as I had in my previous PC. My internet search was unsatisfactory. The only solution I founf was to right click the link and use the option "open link in new tab". This works but is cumbersome compared to the old version. I also found some help to change certain values in "about:config" from false to true. But they did not work. Does the new version of firefox block the desired adjustment?

Hello,

I usually had no problems deleting a single form entry that was once saved. As described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms#w_deleting-individual-form-entries

But now this doesn't work anymore. I can't delete the form entry. Nothing happens when I follow the instruction. I tried it on two different laptops. Right now I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-Bit). Is this a known issue of my Firefox version or has the method changed?

Thank you in advance! M.

I have selected 'use custom setting for history' option and checked last three option too. In setting of history setting I also ticked on 'browsing and downloading history'. So Firefox should clear my browsers history when I close it. but it doesn't. Please help me with this. I am using latest version of Firefox on windows10 if this does matter.

Every few days, my firefox homepage settings and options reset to factory defaults. I normally have about 8 pages that open EVERY time i create a new window and its frustrating to have to manually re-add them to the homepage every few days. Same thing with my toolbars - they reset every few days. my default pdf viewer also changes every few days. Bookmarks are still present - just the

I use the 'options' , 'homepage', 'use current pages' to set these up. I am running the latest version 85.0.1. I have seen other threads on this topic and so far none of those suggestions have helped.

Please help.

What a tragedy!

My notebook just crashed! But being an IT person, I was completely confident that everything being in the cloud! I have nothing to worry about! That was right except for Firefox! I logged in to my account turned on sync Password came back, my containers also came back! But bookmarks completely disappeared! NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!

I tried profile thing there was 2 profiles in the new installations! None have any bookmarks what a mess!! How did Firefox fail so miserably in such a basic thing! I'm speechless!

And what made things worse that there is absolutely no way to contact anyone at Firefox to ask, or at least to express how outragous and incompetent is not being able to retrieve bookmarks on a synced account! This stupid local or different installation concept!! Oh my god who came with such stupid idea! And why its only for bookmarks!

I'm sure there should be away, as my bookmarks also disappeared from all other devices mobile and desktops alltogether!!

Are there any smart solution for such very stupid premetive problem! As my bookmarks literally in hundreds!

My history sidebar doesn't show my most recently visited websites even when sorted by "Last Visited".

If I start to type the name of the website, they do appear there (so they are being recorded in history). But it doesn't matter what sites I visit, the last visited links don't change.

Does anyone know what might be causing this?

I loaded Firefox onto a new Win10 laptop yesterday and made it the default browser (against the "recommended" Edge). Today some websites are loading very slowly (e.g. PCMag home page takes 30 seconds to load). Some https sites load normally and others are slow. I refreshed Firefox, did not fix it. Is there something I can do?

Download Firefox adds another file extension

I got a new computer (Windows 10; my old one still had Windows 7), I have the same Firefox Version 85.0.2 (64 bit), and the same options (transferred with my account) yet firefox behaves differently when downloading. In this case when I download a .dlc file (a text file) firefox ADDS the file extension .txt, in consequence jdownloader2 doesn't open it automatically. Under Windows 7 firefox does no such thing. How can I change this behavior in firefox (under Windows 10 only?)?

Whenever I visit a news website, I almost always see a screen with a video embedded. When I scroll down, the video reappears in the bottom right of the screen in a tiny window, and there seems to be no way to disable whatsoever.

I have looked everywhere to no avail. It seems to be a flaw in Firefox, given that there is no obvious way to prevent it from appearing. I have tried hiding it with Adblock Plus, and other similar extensions. But it only half blocks it, and only the current one that's appearing. If I reload the page, it reappears in full. It's usually labeled 'watch (the) video'.

It is extremely annoying. I thought this was the 2020s, not the 1960s. Surely there is a way by now to prevent this intrusive feature from appearing at all. Does anyone know any magic tricks?

The first attachment shows the video embedded on a news website. The second one shows the offending pop up when one scrolls below the main video. I have never heard of any way to get rid of it, despite having used Firefox for a while now.

Cheers
