With color perception limited vision, I cannot distinguish default colors for visited/not-visited link colors. I tried changing colors in Settings via:

Colors / Override FF's default colors for text, website backgrounds, and links:

I changed the colors to what suits my needs BUT just changing those colors ALSO put focus(?) lines around various texts and randomly changes colors elsewhere in arbitrary fashion making my changes unacceptable. What am I doing wrong?

I am not stupid, but I do not understand the langauge used in describing "modifications." It would be useful for people in similar states of lack of knowledge to have at least maps/legends of web pages explaining the arcane language of webs.

TIA Stephen

I really like Firefox, and have been using it for many years. I even used Netscape navigator back in the bad old days! But there are two things that really annoy me:

- I can't seem to be able to place bookmarks into folders on the desktop (like I can with Vivaldi). For example: I visit a lot of news sites, so I'd like to have a folder called "News", and put them all it there instead of having my news site bookmarks all over the desktop. I just find it a cleaner way to organise my desktop.

- I can't seem to customize my search, apart from selecting between the default search engines. I'd like to be able to search "google.co.za" instead of "google.com", but there doesn't seem to be a way of changing that (again, like I can with Vivaldi).

If I could sort these issues out, Firefox would be my main browser, and I'd scrap Vivaldi as I find that it's getting too "heavy". (Of course, maybe these features contribute to that!)

Thank you.

I have new windows 11 laptop. I added firefox browser & made it my default. It displays a news feed upon starting. I've never seen this on earlier versions. How can I turn it off? I don't want anything displayed except a search box & my bookmarks. If this can't be disabled I will be looking for a different default browser :( Thanks.

As the title says when I am using the video player on Coursera website I am not able to hide the control bar while on fullscreen mode (even if I don t move my mouse for more than 15 seconds). I ve attached a screenshot with the control bar being displayed. (also the captions are overlapping with that control bar) I ve also tried different ways of opening the fullscreen mode (click on the "Full Screen" button or by pressing 'F'). I don t have this problem on websites like YouTube.

Firefox version 122 eliminated nice shortcut to add Search Bar in Toolbar

RE: Settings and Search

_1. Go to Firefox SETTINGS __

_2. From SETTINGS, click on SEARCH __

_3. Attached snippets / screenshots show nice shortcut to toggle on-off auxiliary Search Bar on the Toolbar. Version 121.0.1 has the shortcut. Version 122.0 does not have the shortcut. __

_4. Please issue an update that will restore this shortcut. __

_5. FYI, I did figure out that you can navigate to SETTINGS, MORE TOOLS, CUSTOMIZE TOOLBAR, and FIND in order to add or remove the auxiliary Search Bar on the Toolbar. But the shortcut in illustrated in the screenshot of Version 121.0.1 was so much simpler!

I can not seem to set Firefox as my default browser. After I correctly setup Firefox as the default , and it shows up as default even in Firefox. Anytime I click on a link in Outlook it brings up Microsoft Edge. If I setup DuckDuckGo as the default browser, a click on a link brings me to DuckDuckGo. One item that might be the cause of my issue, is that when I go into Apps, in my windows 11 setup, it actually shows two Firefox applications.

Thanks for any help!
