Open links in new tab setting does not working, even in safe mode

'Open links in new tab' and 'When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately' settings do not work, even in safe mode. I'm on Version 96.0.2.

Changing these settings manually also does not solve the issue, tabs still open in the current window:

browser.search.openintab and make sure its value is set to true.

browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs set to true.

Only thing that works for this function is CTRL + Click. Shouldn't these settings work if applied?

Thanks.

I almost did not recognise my toolbar after seemingly an unattended install. It is extremely annoying with this wasteful double space harrange in the bookmarks toolbar on the browser menu. Why on earth do you want to add such large whitespace between bookmark entries ?

You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

Hi, Firefox is my preferred browser but I am having trouble logging into a site I use a lot. The site is Supercoach (https://supercoach.heraldsun.com.au) but when I try to log in it keeps telling me the user name or password is incorrect. I have tried clearing the cache with no success. I have no problem logging in with Chrome and Brave. Please advise, Ian.

Anytime I open Firefox, there are 3 files displayed in my download history. They are called "Timeline 1.mov", "Timeline 1(1).mov" and "Timeline 1(2).mov", come from "protonmail.com" and never get downloaded fully, but are displayed as failed downloads only.

I don´t use protonmail per se, but I do have two mail servers set as my home pages. I was wondering if it is possible that they have something to to with that or if I should be worried that there´s more to it.

Any help appreciated, thanks!

I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.

I must renew my Passport and it costs $120 and in the past I have done it with my Visa Card. But now for some reason it doesn't work any more. The US Government seems to think that the problem is with Visa! The problem is when I try to write the number of the Vise Card in the box that is provided, it only accepts 13 of the numbers that I type in, and not all 16. They suggest that the problem is with my Browser, and not with their s/w. Does Mozilla give problems when people like me, who want to send money from Germany to the US Government in America?

I live in senior community. I have been using Firefox for several years. Recently I have been unable to access the "portal" I use to pay my rent, ask for maintenance etc. I got a new password from the office yesterday and was still unable to access the company website to Pay my rent. It was suggested I change my "password" and I did. To no positive result. I had to use "chrome" to pay it. Am I going to have to do this everytime I have to do anything on this "resident portal". The company name is Overture Virginia Beach but was bought by Westminster Canterbury. I find the timing somewhat noteworthy.

Many thanks... Linda Summers

I noticed just in the last few days that Google Calendar is not displaying certain items correctly anymore.

I have tested this in Troubleshoot mode and the issue exists there as well, so I know it isn't one of my addons causing it. I have not changed any settings recently either.

Can someone please advise me on this issue?

On the printing subpage, the are four choices for the pages to print: All, Odd, Even, Custom. It always initially comes up with All selected. Is there a way to configure things so that the default instead is Custom? If not, could this feature be added to FF?

On repeated occasions, I have been offered multiple usernames in logging onto a website, specifically some choices that are all numeric usernames in addition to the correct one. When I then attempt to edit my Firefox PW list, there is no such username listed. I'll grant that I'm not always disciplined when offered "Save this PW and username?" at time of logins, but even if an inadvertent save, they should be there when I access the list.

All of a sudden, eBay is rendering on the current version of Firefox as if it were a very old version. The suggested item that are usually displayed with decent sized avatars/icons in a horizontal strip above and below the auction you want to view are suddenly huge and arranged in a single vertical column. Even the scroll arrows to move left & right through the seections are enormous and located at the top and bottom of the selections.
