I am doing school online at home. I go to my login page, sign in, and get sent to the home page. From the home page i have to scroll to the bottom, click a link, click a link on that next page, then access my assignments. Is there a way to login and then create a redirect from the page it sends me to to my assignments page?

Operating system: Windows 8.1 (performed a system refresh on a Windows 10 and ended up with 8.1 instead, not sure what happened but I like it)

PLEASE PLEASE make it the way it was before. I use 'ctrl-tab' and 'ctrl-shift-tab' so much and I loved it the way it was before. It was simple, bloat-free, it worked, did exactly what I wanted.

Now, it pops up some animation where it shows me the tabs and what's in them (and that only works when you first press 'ctrl-tab' btw. with 'ctrl-shift-tab' it doesn't work anymore, unless you first do 'ctrl-tab'.) And it's also slow (way slower than the old way at least). And also it doesn't just go through the tabs in the order that they're in up there.

It's such an important feature to me that I will switch to another browser if this doesn't change back and I really don't want that. PLEASE change it back I love firefox ;;(

According to the official Firefox procedure shown online, in order to remove individual cookies, go to Options-Privacy-"Cookies and Site Data", Manage Data. All cookies are listed in that screen. Select the cookie to remove then click on the "Remove" button. After all individual cookies have been selected and 'Removed', finally, click on the "Save Changes" button and exit the screen.

The problem is, NO "Save Changes" button exists on the screen in Firefox 65. And, in fact, when I exit the screen and reboot Firefox - none of my changes to the list of cookies are actually done.

How to I really manage to permanently remove specific cookies ??

The Firefox browser tries to interpret anything containing a '.' as a website, even though many such things are clearly not valid websites. This makes searching for things containing a '.' inconvenient. A more intelligent check should be done, maybe a check to see if the text contains a valid public suffix (https://publicsuffix.org), since all websites should contain a valid public suffix. This is especially true since this list was originally created by Mozilla, i.e. they can easily integrate with it. Then searches containing '.' which are clearly not valid websites could be done from the URL searchbar.

I recently had to reset my firefox browser, now something I have done before I can't find how to do again. I do not want to have the search result show my entire history of anything involving the word I am searching for, nor do I want to clear my history. I have already gone to about:preferences#search and unchecked provide search suggestions. I assume there is an option in about:config but I cannot find what it is. Help would be greatly appreciated.

It's getting more and more complicated for us "oldies". We're not adolescent typists on a so-called smart phone - and we're going to suffer when Kiwibank ditches cheques and we have to learn all the ins and outs of on line banking. We were brought up in the days of times tables - pocket calculators weren't invented then. But it's overwhelming when we get all these instructions on setting up for the likes of "private" and "non-private" browsing, and the myriad of "apps" and "extensions" and whatever. If Microsoft Windows and Browsers of this day and age require a degree in how to use them, then I'll see if I can find a guru who can install Linux and a real simple Seniors Browser. Not one that sends you a host of emails on "useful hints" and "Things to do in Europe" if you happen to book and on-line ticket to see your grandchildren in Switzerland. Us 80's plus need something simple and safe to use. Forget all the gadgets. Can you re-shoe a horse - or tether one to a single furrow plough?

So, I'm not really sure how to describe this, but I go to a few websites a lot, but I go to specific sections of their site and skip the home page entirely, I just moved over from chrome and it always knew what I wanted when I typed in the first 3 letters of the page, but firefox brings me to the actual page...which is technically correct but pretty annoying due to my habits.

For example, I go to android messages for web, the home page is worthless, but I want the web chat I type in 'mes' and brings me to the home page, not the actual useful page of messages for web
