Hi I've read [page] and try to apply the instructions but somehow I can't get it to autocomplete to the domain I want. These work the way I want them to for example, when I type gm it autocompletes to gmail.com; when I type y it autocompletes to youtube.com. It used to never autocomplete for gmail.com but then I used the arrow key to select gmail.com from the drop menu, and hit Enter (per the instructions on the above mentioned page) and since then it autocompletes to gmail.com. So that worked as intended. But when I type ik it autocompletes to ikea.com while I want it to autocomplete to ikea.nl. The latter does show up in the drop menu and no matter how often I use the arrow key to select it and press enter, it still keeps autocompleting in the address bar to ikea.com. Am I missing a crucial step?

Thank you

edit: I've tried deleting ikea.com with Shift Delete, but it keeps coming back after I've closed the tab/browser

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?

Hi, we have a Media Market here in the Netherlands and there is a complaints page, it unfortunately does not work or does not work well with firefox and I unfortunately had to install Microsoft Edge to continue my complaint. The first choice block that you have ordered about which your complaint is about is not clickable and that is very strange, I have tried everything but cannot get it done. The page works in android and also via other explorers. Would like a solution / advice.

best regards John.

I want to use CTRL + SHIFT + H to open up my Home Page, preferably overriding my current open tab.

I was planning on using a macro to set the hotkey to CTRL + SHIFT + H. And direct that macro hotkey to use a Mozilla Firefox shortcut that opens up the Home Page.

But I ran into a problem. The Firefox Shortcut page says that ALT + H opens up the Home Page. When I tried it, all it did was toggle the top menu bar off and on, or open up a Firefox Help Page.

So then I looked at my Saka Keys extension to see if there was an option to set a hotkey for the Home Page. There was none.

Then I tried installing another shortkeys extension. Again, no option to set a hotkey to open up the Home Page.

Then I did more searching and I found various extensions that will open up the Home Page in a new tab. Not what I want, ideally, but I had a look at the extensions anyway. Unfortunately, you can't use a hotkey to open up the tab to that specific Home Page. It just goes to the Home Page automatically when you open up a new tab. You don't use a shortcut. This is problematic because I already have my new tab set to a different website, and I don't want to replace that website with the Home Page. I want to keep the same website for new tabs, and just open up a freaking Home Page using a shortcut.

Firefox has really gotten stupid ever since Quantum. Thanks Firefox!

I just moved to another notebook after the past one dead, and I have to recover my past addons from an external hdd. I just found all the .xpi files that contain any single add-on, but it's not clear to me how should I manage them so that Firefox will instantly recognize the addons. Can you please help me?

I'm trying to switch from opera to Firefox, as title says, Firefox is slow when live commenting is enabled on bilibili.com when watching videos, it gets worse if you play video in full-screen mode, and CPU is about 15% higher than opera even not in full-screen.

I've tested on other two similar website: douyu.com and huya.com , turns out the issue is only with bilibili.com, I found that the live comment feature is implemented by canvas on bilibili.com while the other two sites uses css3 instead, and I simply tested canvas benchmark with benchmark1 and benchmark2 and the result conforms my guess -- opera performs much better than Firefox.

I've tried toggle hardware acceleration and safe mode, no significant improvement observed

This is on Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit Since latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox is shutting itself down automatically whenever I click to close an active tab and there is only one extra tab open that is an empty “Private Browsing” tab. Before the latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox did not shut itself down automatically. The blank “Private Browsing” tab would remain open and Firefox would keep running normally. Thanks for any help.

Hey, I'm using the restore previous session feature. Its really helpful, but I assume since the last update it is not working properly. Whenever I use the private firefox browser (window) parallel to the normal one (window) and close the normal browser before the private one, my last active session of the normal browser is not restored.

When I close the private firefox window before the normal firefox browser window everything works fine with restoring the tabs.

Any way around? And please fix this annoying bug. Thanks!

The newest version of Firefox, 79, is the only one that's been doing this. Every time I power up the browser, I try clicking my Twitter option, either in the bookmark bar or in the highlights, if Twitter has cookies, it won't work unless I click it a second time. If I remove the cookies, it works the first time again, but will revert to not working the first time after power up after browsing Twitter even once.

Hi

I want to be able to stop autofill for a single website but keep it on for everything else.

I run a website that means I have to input a lot of data into boxes and Firefox annoyingly wants to auto fill every box meaning the data gets messed up from time to time.

Is there anyway to disable it for single sites?

Thanks

Whenever I visit any website to play music or watch videos no sound is provided. I can visit the same sites using Chrome and the all play sound. I can play music that resides on my PC without any issues. I have re-installed Firefox but to no avail - still no sound. My sound settings are not muted either in Windows, when on the various sites and within Firefox itself. I have Autoplay permissions set to allow video and audio. I am using 79.0 (64 bit) What is the problem and how do I resolve it?
