Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

I downloaded and installed the firefox app and nothing happens. No menu. No tabs. The word "firefox" appears in the upper left corner of my screen and a "." appears under the app, indicating that it is open. The screen "blinked" momentarily when I opened the app. I am a longtime user of Firefox and this same thing happened this morning when I opened the app, which I uninstalled, and then downloaded and installed this new app. Same problem.

I need to disable the Quick Find hotkey or change it to something else. I use the forward slash on the keypad as a divide symbol for an in-browser calculator for my online math homework. However, every time I hit forward slash, it brings up the Quick Find search bar, which means I have to stop and use my mouse to click the divide button on the calculator. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

The search bar that used to be in the center of the page has suddenly moved to the top of the page in all new tabs: https://i.imgur.com/2f5VZjv.png

This started around noon today, and was not preceded by any updates or changes to Firefox or any of my addons, so far that I'm aware of.

How do I return the search bar to the center of the page?

Hi. I reset my Windows 10 last night to fix a glitch (it didn't fix it) and I suddenly cannot see/upload my JPG files online with Firefox. For example, if I click to post a picture to my Tweet, only the PNGs in the folder will appear, despite there being JPGs in it as well. This only happens with Firefox, as Edge and Chrome show/make them available just fine, and they show up on my PC normally. I was told to reinstall Firefox, which I did, but they still don't show up.

How do I fix this?

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.

My Sessions and Session Boss know I have all my tabs open presently. I can't see the tabs & I can't right click a bookmark and see a 2nd tab open. I had the tabs at the top and just under the bookmarks bar. Now it is just one long blank bar. I disabled and then re-enabled proton, which is the worst upgrade experience ever. I changed to a simple theme, still no tabs. I downloaded the previous version 88, but it will start a new profile. I just want where I was 2 hours ago. I'll attach an image of the left upper screen with the blank tab bar.

I've been using Firefox for years but this morning it stopped working. the little firefox button just kept moving left-right and never found the page. Eventually I gave up and uninstalled firefox but when I tried to reinstall it, it states that firefox was previously installed and allows me to reinstall. when I do that it always gives an error message that it was unsuccessful.

I cannot access Mozilla via Firefox - issue arose when trying to access add-ons yesterday (25 Jan 2020). Firefox displays the following: "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to addons.mozilla.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

In order to post this, I have had to access the site via Chromium, which also noted a secure connection error. I have used a VPN add-on to secure the connection and access the site.

I assume this is an issue on the Mozilla server with an expired certificate?
