There are some websites that modifying the history and when I wish to go back, I am being taken back directly to home page, or worse in some others, being looped back into the current url again.

In the second one, I know the website adding a duplicate url to the history so if I right click and select the 3rd one I can get out of the loop but it's just rather quite annoying.

Is it possible to prevent these websites meddling with my browsing history? (without disabling the javascript)

Thank you very much in advance.

When I enter a search string for both yahoo or google (but not as yet duckduckgo) somewhere the string is "edited" before it is sent and all extended search characters deleted so "field1 field2" and "field1 -field2" return identical results. Some of the editing can be seen when the text is transferred from the search window to the address window. for example my try at ' "-"field2' was edited to '- field2' with a space between '-' and "field2". I am running Linux Mint and have done a Firefox update with no effect. Note that this not how it used to behave.

Dear Forum,

The AARP website hasn't let me log in for a few weeks. It gives the following message, and I don't know how to fix it. I looked in Firefox preferences, and AARP has all of its cookies listed. I'm not a bot, moving too quickly. I couldn't figure out whether Firefox allowed Javascript. Here is the message (but I deleted my IP and Proxy IP):

I am wanting to maximize my privacy and security on Firefox. I am using aliases to do so. However, when viewing the account settings and the connected services section, I saw that Firefox was connected to "[full legal name]'s Firefox on [laptop name]." I did not supply Firefox with my real name, and I suspect that Firefox is simply reading the name of the account I used to log into my laptop. However, changing the name of the device account is not easy as it is linked to my Microsoft account, but even after successfully doing so using the command center, the connected services still reads my real name. How do I change this?

I've been using a third party window manager on iOS and have shortcuts assigned to resize and reposition windows. Recently I've noticed that the behavior for Firefox is significantly different and my initial guess is that something in Firefox is intercepting my shortcuts and resizing my windows instead allowing my window manager to handle it. For reference, the shortcuts I have for my third party window manager are listed below and result in different behavior when focused on Firefox compared to other applications:

  • Position window left: `Cmd + Ctrl + H`
  • Position window right: `Cmd + Ctrl + L`
  • Position window center: `Cmd + Ctrl + M`

Is there a way to disable this?

I would like to be able to highlight texts in one container and search for them in another container (or no container) from the right click menu. Is there a way to add this functionality?

Some additional points: i) Currently, if I highlight a text and right click and search Google for it, the new tab opens in the same container (or no container). I don't want to remove this option, I just want to add the option to be able to do this search in any container I have available. ii) Functionality I want is very similar to how it works when you highlight links, where you have option to open in new tab or open in new container tab you choose. iii) I don't want to assign all my searches to a specific container by forcing "always open [domain] in [container]". For example, I already have a Google container, I do not want searches to go to that container by default, I want to be able to choose where they go. Assigning all Google links to a container makes it hard for me to segregate searches from containers where I use other Google services. iv) The way I do this currently is by highlighting text and then opening a new tab in a container and then searching separately, which is inconvenient. v) If this feature doesn't exist, is it possible to request this feature? How would one go about doing that?

Thank you very much for any help. This is something that's been bugging me a bit lately.
