How to ensure that hyperlinks in pinned tabs open in new tabs?

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

Hello, is this the standard behavior for downloading the FF by using some different web browsers? I am talking still about the same version of 64bit FF for Win10 offline installer US but downloading this in different web browsers... The (final) downloaded file has exactly the same size of file but "slightly" different content - this is happening only when downloading FF. If I download different browser in various browsers then the size and content is exactly the same - but not in case of FF. Is it OK (some adjustemnt..) please or could it be virus? Thank you in advance for your respond. Jiri

Hi, I am using Firefox 83.0 64 bit (not sure if it has recently updated or not). I noticed today that my extensions were no longer visible in the top right corner, even though they were still installed. I tried to fix the problem by deleting/re-installing firefox several times but this did not seem to help. I have now found out that they disappear when I select "Never remember history" on the privacy page. They re-appear if I select Rember history from the drop down menu. Is this a bug or is there a way to fix this. Thanks

Firefox 83 changed how the search engine options work: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I personally use the old behavior (submit immediately after clicking the option) much more often than I need to see the search suggestion. Is there an option to make the old behavior the default without pressing shift?

Thanks!

I have been avidly using Firefox for 10+ years. However, I notice a trend that if I have several Firefox tabs open for quite a while, it starts typing in some wrong characters.

A list of character errors it makes is: é appears when typing slash beside shift on the right side. è appears when typing the apostrophe symbol beside enter. à appears when typing slash above enter ç appear when typing the right square bracket ^^ appears when typing the left square bracket (does not type anything 1st try, then enters that the 2nd try. Or if pressing it once, then backspace, it enters ^) / appears when typing key to the left of 1 at the top. É appears when typing a question mark. @ is working right now, although it usually does not work when this occurs.

Restarting the computer fixes it every time. This EXCLUSIVELY occurs times I have at least a few Firefox tabs open. I first came across this in Windows 7. In Windows 7, it made those character errors in Firefox but entered the correct characters when typed in apps like Word and Excel. It only occurred around once per month, I got by it by typing characters in Word then pasting them in Firefox until I got a chance to reboot. They pasted fine, just typing them gave the character errors.

With Windows 10 though, it is more than 10 times worse. I get these errors nearly every day. And in Windows 10, once the incorrect characters start getting typed in Firefox they also type that way in apps like Word too.

In msconfig.exe, I disabled all non-Microsoft services and disabled everything in the startup list, but it continues doing this.

Anyone have suggestions what to do? I honestly think the most likely explanation for this is Google bribing Microsoft to make it like this to drive people away from Firefox to use Chrome. That way Google can micromonitor us that much better.

I am running a WIN10 Pro 20H2 PC with Firefox 83.0. All software up-to-date. My Internet connect is cable with a U.S. IP location.

All O.K, until I open "https://www.newegg.com/" with my default Firefox browser, which always opens "https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/".

Opening the same "https://www.newegg.com/" URL from the same password manager entry explicitly using Chrome or Edge I get to the desired U.S. location.

Does not occur on my other PCs.

Firefox is changing the URL so that I am always going to the UK location?

Can't find where this is happening. Can anyone assist?
