About using these firefox support pages and this search feature specifically.


the more words I add the more results are returned there seems to be no intellegence in selecting the appropriate answer, it all appears keyword driven.

This is not beneficial in reaching the correct answer. At times I will go to 'Ask your question' because of this and I can guess many of us do. No one wants to read un-related articles!

I would expect to see the results lessen by adding more keywords to a refinement which I can then see in real time.

At times I would like to search for an add-on that I can not "Phrase" the description of as such:

'I am looking for an addon that will download every page I visit for a predetermined time automatically and make those downloaded pages accessible to the open tabs from which those downloads came from so that I can have the cache on hard drive"

I don't know how to call this thing by a search term and need help with this one question really.

I would have other question also such as how to build an add-on.

Is there a forum specifically related to these add-ons only This forum should be specific to the types of add-on we see in Firefox and Google Chrome for developers and enthisiasts.

I see no link to such a forum in the addons page though there is the link to Manage add-ons; or, is this the best place for such questions?

Thanks in advance!

When syncing between devices, the location of bookmarks in subfolders is not remembered

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

So, I have installed a search engine addon BUT I don't like the default shortcut keyword. I know I can add a custom, new one, but as far as I know, I can't remove/replace the default one.

Why isn't it possible to create a custom search string like on mobile Firefox in the first place? It would make things so much easier... :/

Bear with me there's a bit of a story.

One of the apps I most use is MightyText. It allows me to send texts from my desktop computer's web browser. When FireFox automatically updated to the newest version, something didn't work right and MightyText stopped being able to connect.

My workaround was to use System Restore to go back in time so to speak. But FireFox is pretty aggressive with their updates, and eventually that stopped being a work around.

I tried to install an older version of FireFox manually but I couldn't ever get my profile to work right.

So, I've landed somewhere where FireFox has updated to the latest version, AND MightyText works just fine.

But now the problem is I cannot use any of my add-ons. Actually, I can re-fresh FireFox, and start it without any add ons. I can add all my add ons and everything works great, but if I restart my computer, FireFox will not connect to the internet (the wheel just spins) until I refresh again and wipe out all the add-ons. After doing so, all my tabs are restored, all my saved passwords, etc--and I can add back the add-ons and they will work until FireFox Crashes or I restart the computer, but then FF won't connect to the internet and around and around we go.

What's up?

Hi there,

I refreshed Firefox because I found it was running slow, and now my saved logins and passwords are not in my settings anymore.

They are still on my phone but they won't sync now to my iMac desktop.

Is there a way to restore them or resync!

Thanks for your help.

I tried to buy a new version for this desktop, however it refuses to work as well, the error code says I need IE6, I have never used internet explorer, but now it says it is required. What has MS done now? I have a laptop running windows 10 as well. I installed quick books 2009 pro on the laptop and every thing works fine. So is the problem with windows 10, or Firefox? All this seemed to have taken place after a recent windows 10 update. The computer was running extremely slow. Anyone else having similar problems?

I just got the startup screen about the 'Cinderella' button and followed the instructions. It implies I can have multiple Youtube screens open at the same time in little Windows. However I can only have 1 open at a time. When I go to a second YT video, that second video does not have a Cinderella button.

System: Latest FF, Linux Mint 19.3 Since the latest FF update yesterday morning (3/24), I can't access my data on the IRS.gov site (specifically stimulus refund/credit info). I get this page instead:

I am able to get my data by using Chrome, however. Anyone with an explanation or having the same problem?

I am trying to access my organizations Sharepiunt website (part of Office 365) from Firefox 87 on Linux.

I get the site not found screen, saying "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at XXX732.sharepoint.com." where XXX is the organization I work for.

The hostname XXX732.sharepoint.com does not resolve using nslookup, but other webbrowsers do manage to access it.

Any suggestions?

I have a Mac and every time I quit Firefox, when I reopen the program all of my bookmarks and passwords are gone and I have to re-login to my Firefox account every time I open the program. Once I re-login all my passwords and bookmarks come back, but I don't want to login to Firefox every time I open the program. Is there anyway I can get it to stay logged in even after I've quit Firefox?
