Two issues:

1. History is truncated, does not show all history even though Custom Settings set to remember. One google post said to 'delete all history upon closure' ... There are many, many posts from users having same issue.

2. Whatever history is being recorded is no longer simply a list (Ctrl-H) but is sorted into Today, Last Week etc. which is both annoying and makes searching for previously located site impossible unless you know WHEN you visited (unlikely).

Why was the changed? And why don't you change it back so when I select History, Show All History from task bar, Firefox would do just that?

I got mad at a website that wouldn't let me right click menu to save pictures, so I stubbornly saved them via less efficient means, in the process I picked up the Long Screenshot extension and this had an error shortly before or after I had an issue with Lightshot not appearing, other extensions did not appear either when I added them during this time period, but now these all appear with the exception of Lightshot, which gets deleted and reinstalled only to not appear, that of course being the problem, though I will also say that a right click menu not being there is like reaching onto my computer and pulling my finger away, sites that do that should be given the cold shoulder somehow, at least.

This isn't a question about the "Multi-Account Containers" addons, I am pretty sure that there was a section called "Container tabs" in the privacy and security settings, and I could use containers without installing an addon some days ago.

I can still access by directly viewing this address

about:preferences#containers

But I can't find it in the settings, and this feature does no longer work.

So I went to read recent release notes from Firefox 100 to 101.0.1, but I didn't find any notes to say this feature has been disabled. Could this be an unexpected result of an update?

Hello Lovely Firefox Volunteers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox, and other open source projects. Firefox is a fantastic internet browser!

Having said that, I was shocked and dismayed at what I encountered today. I was doing some tests for screen-reader usability on a website, and I came across the following:

Image 1 (attached): Advertisement of Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

Image 2 (attached): No Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox are Available

The Firefox team is advertising screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, which don't seem to exist. I don't think the recommendation here should be: take down the advertisement for the Firefox native screen-reader add-ons/link to them, these seem to be really important for accessibility, and the Firefox team seems to acknowledge this. :)

There is some other missing piece - maybe there are Screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, and they aren't being linked to? Maybe the wrong tag is being used? (The auto tag that is used in the link is "screen reader"). Maybe there aren't any, and this is an area that needs some additional attention?

Anyway, I just thought I should bring this to your attention as making our internet accessible to people living with blindness and loss of sight is extremely important.

Sincerely, Katie

Everytime I try to do a search in Firefox I get a Manuals Library page come up. Why is it doing this? I did a search not long ago for a user's manual for a product, and I guess I accidentally downloaded this Manuals Library. Now I have no idea how to get rid of it. There is no shortcut on my desktop for it, I cannot find it anywhere in my downloaded programs in Uninstall or Change a Program in my Control Box. I DO NOT want this program! Help please!! I tried to do a screen shot of the page, but your browse won't pick it up when I browse for the screen shot I saved on my desktop. Below is the web address copied from the address bar.

moz-extension://e92e4191-795a-4571-8a6b-4582396dbc25/pages/consent/consent.html?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsearch.yahoo.com%2Fyhs%2Fsearch%3Fhspart%3Dtrp%26hsimp%3Dyhs-001%26grd%3D1%26type%3DY143_F163_201897_102620%26p%3DJimmy%2BDean%2Bofficial%2Bwebsite

I hope someone can help! Thank you so much!

I like to set my home page to my search engine, and I want to type on the page in the nice long search field there, not on the d---d address bar! The following preferences have all been offered as fixes to eliminate searching in the address bar, but none of them are currently working for me in FF 102.0.1:

Do about:config; search for the browser.urlbar.suggest.searches preference setting it to false.

Also browser.fixup.alternate.enabled needs to be set to false Also browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches = false

Also to disable searching when typing an address (e.g. the URI fails to resolve and it tries to use a search engine) turn keyword.enabled to false.

What does work?

I just ran "C Cleaner" to clean my computer. At the end, it said to ask the browser if there is a 64 bit Windows compatible version available? It takes 21 seconds to open my browser. That seems like a long time. The message went like this "\??\C:\ Program Files(x86)\MozillaFirefox\firefox.exe" How do I know what version of Firefox I am using?

Hi there; I like Firefox and I always recommend it to others, please keep it the way it was, simply good privacy and easy to use and work with. It used to was possible to clear cookies for a specific website but now it's gone! and I can't figure out how can I delete/clear cookies for a specific website! I think even if there is a way to do this, you've made it so complicated! it was easy, just click on setting icon next to website address in address bar and clear cookies! once I tried this and it took me to other pages and ended up to clearing all my cookies in entire Firefox! and this made difficulties for me to find all my username and passwords and enter them one by one...

Please make it simple as before. Thanks.

I am under a disaster with todays mess of firefox, even on chrome now to try here to get some help. I am having to redo my pc OS etc and I am needing to swap over my app data to the temporary backup pc. I know how to do that but it won't even let me start firefox as it is an older version. I install a newer version and that is one of the new version disasters I hate. I have no time to figure out how to make it look to where it is usable. I got the old pc running and found the version it had. I install that, which is an esr but it still gives me the same problem. I need my firefox working so I can use it with my original tabs and bookmarks. Or you can be like some and tell me to just go elsewhere as a fix for the mess which is todays firefox. I used to have about zero of these kind of problems. How do I get myself to my original setup on the temp pc?
