With the newest firefox (72.0.2) I notice the tabs changing color as the mouse passes over them. A sort of greyish overlay appears over the background that is present before the mouse crosses into the tab. The selected tab does not change color; all the others do. This is really distracting to me; I never noticed it before. How do I get it to stop? (userchrome methods are fine.)

DuckDuckGo has bad habit of every now and then asking me to Download privacy essentials again. It's a big ugly add. Couldn't stand to see it. So I uninstalled DuckDuckGo as search engine. Selected Bing as search engine. Shut down my computer. Restarted. And DuckDuckGo still appears as search engine, even though in Options/Search I have clicked Bing as my search engine. How do I get rid of DuckDuckGo once and for all?

I upgraded to Quantum 69.0 64 bit a day or two ago. Today I have discovered that when I go to print a web page from FF, it does not list my home network printer as a choice. I tested other apps, e.g. Chrome and MS Word and Adobe Rdr, they all still show my home network printer in their printer list, and I was able to print to it from Chrome. I have powercycled my printer, and rebooted my WIN7 PC, no help. My home network printer lists as Canon MF4270 Daves Office. My email is daveryan.cincinnati@gmail.com

Very recently there is an annoying pop up (despite my settings for blocking pops up and virtually everything else) called Maps and Directions Online Promos. I have removed it from my toolbar and it is hidden, but it exists and performing. Can I delete this new tool, or at least stop it from functioning? I'm considering dropping FireFox as my browser which I have used for years because of this.

This is just a question. I have disabled the extension on Firefox, got the latest version. I have heard it's the fastest browser. I don't really care about speed, except to detect network problems on my fiber connection. I have been showing 930Mb/sec speeds for years. When I tried Firefox by curiosity, it shows 480. I am curious why that might be?

Hello!

Since some weeks, I'm getting really often crashes of tabs, and I don't know why. I tried:

- deactivation of all add-ons
- repair of Firefox with the repair option
- uninstall, reinstall
- suppression of all add-ons
- deactivation of options "Use recommanded performance settings" and "use hardware acceleration"

I don't know what to do next, the problem remained through all the stages of this process. Here are my 5 last crashes reports:

- bp-1a94f885-71ec-4d39-a100-bce0d0200125

As it is, Command-F or Control-F searches only support exact phrase search.

If I want to search for any of 6 terms, I have to type them in, one at a time. If I want to search multiple pages, it's a lot of extra typing.

If other people have asked this same question since 57, well, support.mozilla.org does not have a working search function. Apparently Findbar Tweaks provided this function up through 56. But searching "Findbar" in addons.mozilla.org yields every other kind of bar, but nothing involving the findbar, because, well, addons.mozilla.org does not have a working search function, because it stems and defaults to OR searches.

Multi-Keywords Highlighter can highlight these results, but can't help me navigate to each one.

Willing to consider another browser, but must be able to block flashing, block animation, and block blinking cursors, due to neuro issues.

When I load the New York Times website, it opens automatically in the Facebook container. I have cleared all history and restarted the browser and then opened only the New York Times -- no other tabs/sites -- and it still opens in Facebook Container. Does anyone know why that happens and/or how to stop it from happening? The whole point of Facebook Container is to isolate it from everything else you're doing so it can't track all your other business. What you're reading in the NYT is a lot of business for Facebook to be tracking...

I am also trying to find out the file size of the dmg (mine says 72.5Mb) and the Firefox app which seems to be very bloaty in excess of 203.9 Mb

When I drag the Firefox folder to the Applications folder.

However I have gatekeeper set to Allow Apps downloaded from the App Store. YET Firefox opens without having to go into gatekeeper and make changes.

eg. "Open anyway" or "App Store and Identified developers"

Can someone confirm the following i) Current version of Firefox for Max OS X ii) The current size of the dmg iii) The size of the app iv) whether download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net is a a valid Mozilla.org affiliated website
