I open Firefox, enter www.google.co.uk into the address bar, Google UK opens. I now click on the 3 horizontal dots at the right of the URL, no "Add search engine" option appears, if I open YouTube the option appears.

I am following the procedure shown here: support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-or-remove-search-engine-firefox

This is a brand new installation of Windows 10 1903 64 bit on a new laptop.

The only way I can search now is Safari...not my favourite! How did this happen? How can I fix it? Thanks! Charley

I used to be able to pin a page to the taskbar either by right clicking the Firefox icon and selecting the open/recent urls or by dragging the url to the icon. Now neither method works. I don't even see recent urls anymore. I can't find a setting to manage this.

How can I turn off Automatic Updates in Firefox 70?

I am on a metered connection. Updates chew up my data, and I want to CHOOSE when to use that data for updates. There is no toggle in the configuration screen that would allow me to turn off automatic updates, and setting the preference via about:config hasn't worked. I am very irritated by this. It's my computer, it's my browser, and I don't like being forced to do what someone else has decided I should do just because they thought it would be a good idea. If I can't find a way to turn off auto updates then I'll abandon Firefox for something more user-friendly.

How to force webp images to fallback to jpg

Since Firefox is natively supporting .webp images, they are displayed as webp images on web sites providing this option. How can we force Firefox to fallback to jpg or png images? I know .webp images support is an improvement, but for my case I need to export a lot of pictures from websites using a drag'n drop from Firefox to Windows Explorer. As webp images are not supported natively by Windows, this is useless... I would like to get the standard image instead.

Remark : Before Firefox v70, it was possible to force it tweaking about:config : "image.http.accept" = "image/webp,*/*" > change to "*/*" But this tweak is not working anymore.

I dont know why but after updated into firefox 70 with Enhanced Tracking Protection, CPU always 50-60 when i'm watching movies and Memory always go up to 8-12GB after several hours.

Most active addons is NoScript > Tampermonkey > Tabshunter > Stylus, when i'm checking with about:perf , i saw NoScript using so much Memory, so maybe it's Addon memory leaking ?

Sometime when i'm checking Task Manager (Ctrl Alt Del) Disk is 50-80MB/s

I have been having major problems with Firefox. It constantly crashes when I open certain sites, when print from some non processing sources. It even crashed with I followed your instructions that I found online about crashing to go to the Menu & Help & About Firefox. It crashed when I clicked on About Firefox. I have the updated version & I have uninstalled & reinstalled numerous times, but nothing fixes the crashing problem. I am going to have change my default browser unless there is a solution to this problem. Please contact me & advise me how to fix this. It is very frustration. Thank you.

I've been using the extension Screengrab! for years, and still have it installed (v2.18), but it seems to have disappeared from the add-ons repository without trace. How do I find out if the author has retired it or if Mozilla have acted over some security fear? The extension still seems to be available in the Chrome web store (can't see a version number). Screengrab! had tens of thousands of users and had been updated for web extensions (although with some loss of functionality) so it seems strange for it to just disappear.

Just this. Thanks in advance. Here's this add-on's description: "Automatically resumes YouTube videos from where you played them last. Without this extension, for example, when you click through YouTube videos, back and forth, they always start from the beginning. No more. With this extension, previously seen videos will resume from where you left them at. Even if you restart your browser." I have: Author Appteligent LTD Version 1.2.3 Last Updated December 10, 2019
