1.)Firefox 128, pressing enter into an empty search box no longer loads the default search engine website? How to reset previous search engine settings? 2.) I also noticed in firefox 128: I've noticed that you can no longer delete previous searches from the search field. Previously you could use the arrow keys to navigate, then press the shift or option key (varies by platform) in combination with Delete to remove old entries.

My school library has a proxy server for connecting to subscriptions at various content providers. The site certificate is wildcarded, because the proxy server's name becomes the domain for the particular site to which the authenticated user is connecting. This has been the recommended way for libraries to connect institutionally with commercial content providers since at least 2000. The attachment shows the response that I get when I connect to my library with Firefox. You aren't allowed the opportunity to tell Firefox to accept the certificate as legit and connect anyway, which is extremely annoying.

Hi, I love the new, little weather app/temperature icon in the upper left of the Firefox home page. HOWEVER, I really want to change it to a city closer to me. I looked up how to do it, but the directions seem WRONG. I cannot hover and find any way to change locations. Is it because I'm on a Mac? or ?

Can you help me? I'm using an iMac computer... everything works, it's updated, what could be wrong?

thanks, Kathy P.

Is there something wrong on my end or, is it just a loading error?

Firefox Sync - about:config settings not applied on other devices

I've just created a Mozilla account so that I can sync my customised about:config settings between devices but I'm struggling to get it working. For each setting I have customised that isn't on the default whitelist, I have created a new boolean setting as follows:

'services.sync.prefs.sync.xyz' where xyz is the setting I have customised.

Each of these newly created boolean settings is set to 'true'.

When I 'sign in and sync' on a new device and check about:config, the values of these custom settings is not changed from the default.

Have I missed something in my understanding of the process?

Any advice will be appreciated.

I've tried these extensions:

Don't Accept Image/Webp Image Forcer Webp/Avif converter Save webP as PNG or JPEG (Converter)

They no longer work. Now, Firefox is determined to save images as webp. Researching this problem has turned up a bunch of people saying it's not Firefox doing it, but Opera does not do this. I have always done my work on Firefox and am wondering if there's any way to prevent this or if I just need to transfer all my work over to Opera and be done with Firefox.

Hello,

I'd like to know if there is a way to permanently suppress that popup "open firefox in troubleshoot mode" (an image is attached to this post). Context is that we are running automated software tests (websites) using Firefox on VMs. It can happen that the Firefox processed is killed (for example, during a clean-up after a test run) and then the popup appears on the next test run.

That the browser is forcefully shutdown sometimes is unavoidable and we don't have much control over the VMs (so no reset is possible, for example). I'm really just looking for a way to suppress this popup and just start Firefox again.

Kind regards

Hi. What is the problem with my mozilla firefox? i have an updated version. From time to time, it just stops working. It might be when i open multiple tabs, or when i open 1 tab. When it happens, it just stays on "loading" status, and shows blank screen, and the url im requesting does not open. But when i close mozilla, and start again, then it will work.

I used to be able to press Enter in the empty Firefox search bar to bring up the (DuckDuckGo) search page and enter my search from there. Don't ask me why I like doing that, but now after the latest Firefox update, 128.0, on my MacBook Air I can't do that anymore. I have to type in the search bar to bring up the search page.

I know it's a small thing but I wonder if it can be put back to the way it used to be.

I am increasingly finding that websites of all sorts load but I can't click on hyperlinks to other pages. Reloading the page or restarting doesn't help. I also can't type in boxes, which means I can't log in to a number of sites.

This problem does not occur in 'troubleshoot mode'.

In a linked problem, there is a webpage I use often which simply won't work properly - most of the content is absent. Again, if I use 'troubleshoot mode' it works fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks

For some reason a few days ago after closing Bookmarks sidebar a few times to view full-window video, I re-enabled the sidebar as always (both with clicking the icon and CTRL + B, and they came back. Now, EVERY time I open FF (using W10), the sidebar will NOT show up unless I click CTRL + B or the icon on the bar on top of the window. I have installed nothing. Nothing crashed. FF is up to date. I refreshed it. I uninstalled it. I REINSTALLED it from scratch. I performed a system restore FOUR TIMES, yet cannot get back my sidebar when opening FF. Further, when I open the sidebar with CTRL + B, the column is VERY narrow and I have to widen it. So it appears that FF cannot remember the setting for the sidebar and defaults to a skinny one when activated. I ran troubleshooting mode and YES! The sidebar works as it should and opens with a new browser opening...ONCE. I disabled/deleted ALL extensions (I only use four), but I have not changed any parameters of FF or my system in general for this to be happening. I've checked EVERY setting in FF over and over, trying everything that could be relevant. Now what? After reinstalling I'm left with the same problem. What can I do? I cannot live with NO sidebar on startup. Oh and the silly Bookmarks bar DOES work, but I don't use it...it's stupid and I don't like the look or placement of it. This problem is SIDEBAR ONLY.
