My default search engine was Norton Safe Search but now it does not appear as one of the options to choose. I cannot remember all of them. Bing and Google are two of them but not Norton Safe Search although I have been able to add it to the toolbar. Why is it no longer one of the options?

Hi there,

In the search settings, I have set DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and removed all other engines from the list of options. However, I often notice that Google (which I have removed from the options) has replaced DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and has again been added as an optional search engine, without me knowing. Why is this happening? Is it possible to stop it happening, and if so, how can I stop it happening?

Cheers Paul

Just refreshed a page by hitting ctrl + r twice, which bypasses safety net, and lost my whole draft for post I wanted to make. Is there a way to disable this "convenient feature" so this doesn't ruin my day further?

I wanted to make a lengthy post on a website today, but I accidentally hit CTRL + R twice which bypassed the "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave — information you’ve entered may not be saved." safety net. Is there a way to deliberately disable any and all refresh shortcuts and buttons when a safety net shows up, so my buttery fingers don't ruin my day to it's absolute maximum?

I want safety nets to be deliberately annoying.

URL autocomplete defaults to site I haven't used in years

I'm a student, which means I'm constantly accessing my university's library page. I've run into a weird URL autocomplete issue that I can't seem to resolve.

Beginning to type "library" in the URL bar leads to Firefox autocompleting with a past college's library site that I haven't used in years. It's not in my bookmarks, I've deleted all its site data in Firefox's history, I've tried the "shift + delete" trick, but nothing's making this autocomplete go away. It doesn't seem like Firefox Suggest, but something else.

All I want is for my school's library to show up as the autocomplete. It's so annoying to navigate away from a website I haven't used in years every time.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Whatever you did to Friefox, you broke the ability for me to have it keep a set of urls open at start up. You disabled a very useful feature.

That is how you product worked until this week. Now, it sucks. And why does the header say that my options are controlled by my organization ? This is my private computer, belongs to me, not any organization !

The Firefox "New tab" page shows quick-navigation buttons. At the top right of each button, the 3-dot menu has an Edit option. On the edit dialog is a link "Use a custom image", which then prompts you for a image URL.

I've tried pointing this to images in my Google Photos (a 1024x1024 .JPG), using an open-shareable link, but it doesn't work.

a) What format does the icon image have to be in? b) Are there any limitations on the URL? c) Is there a way to use a locally stored icon image?

Any guidance would be most welcome! Thanks :)

Hi! I finally decided to switch to Firefox :) So far it's great, yet there are a few things that are different from Chrome (that I've used for more than 10 years). Some of the things I found already, but there are others that are obscure, and I would appreciate your help in finding them!

1. When typing something in the search bar and clicking the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab, it auto switches to that tab. I found settings for auto-switching from bookmarks and a few other places, but this one still eludes me.

2. Reopen closed tab. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not open the last tab that I've closed (only some random one?). I have no idea how it should work, but on Chrome it just opens the last closed tab. Is it possible to change this behavior to work the same way?

3. I have multiple monitors (probably like most people nowadays). When I want to move a tab to another monitor, so it makes a new window it's super weird. Sometimes when I move it over another programs window it just doesn't work, sometimes if I move too quickly it also doesn't work. Any way to fix this?

Other than that I've enjoyed my stay so far :)

The new selection "Copy without site tracking" may eliminate certain codes, but does not remove all invasive data (my term). Consider this common URL occurrence:

link text

The new filter does absolutely nothing to this and when I pass this kind of URL on to others, I do not want to include all that crapola. Currently I have to manually edit the link, which can really get tiresome when passing on a lot of links.

Is there a way to modify anything in Firefox to accommodate this?
