Ages ago, with the separate search bar enabled, Firefox would allow the addition of any "searchable" site to the dropdown options for a search. This option is still available on specific sites, shown by adding a green + to the search icon (see Capture3.png).

At some point, this addition was "overridden" so that this option was available only to specific sites that have enabled the OpenSearch description within a separate xml file (from my best understanding from my best understanding). I'm sure that there is a security reason for this, but given that there are many sites available that don't have this option for whatever reason, including Wolfram Alpha and Dogpile, I used to be able to still add these sites as one-click searches and I would still like to do so.

If the "Add X"/green + is not available, the only option to add new search engines these days appears to be through the "Find more search engines" link under Options which sends the user to Add-Ons site specifically to search for an applicable add-on.

It doesn't seem like I should have to include an entire Add-on to switch search engines, especially since search engines I'd had from previous Firefox versions seem to have carried over just fine. For example, Thesaurus.com and Wolfram Alpha can't be added on my newer, fresh Firefox installations on other PCs, but I've got Thesaurus.com available from my long-standing profile (Capture4.png).

I've found a method to edit the search.json.mozlz4 file and manually add searches, there must be an easier way to accomplish something that seems relatively simple, and do so without a new add-on.

Does MS Update (Edge) (KB45569309) Pour mollasses over FF ??

I have a brand spanking new system with Win 10 installed on SSD. I've been using it for about a month and it works great. MS updated edge over night (SURPRISE) and now Firefox has been slowed down considerably. For example. Facebook loads OK, but as I scroll down, the "Like", "Read More" , "Comment" links don't work for a bit. On this site trying to bring focus on this text area is laggy. Not like before update.

They seem to show up after a while, but it seems like every site is somehow s-lo-w-e-d since this 'update'. I re booted and also ran the 'quick fix" option but stuff is still slow.

Of course the update can NOT be rolled back. Do y'all imagine this is intentional or just my imagination?

Please understand my query. I removed the Firefox completely out of my computer, went into Regedit.exe (Please don't go in it unless you have used it frequently and know the consequences) and removed it as through as possible, when I get done there was nothing left in the computer of Firefox not even a single file or a string. Then I installed again and every website works fine, but if I log into my Firefox account only after that everything disappears, then if I open a new private window everything works fine again It seems to me the problem is my account in Firefox server. But I do not have access to it. I have it on two of my cell phone and 2 other computers but this is the newer one I use the most and only on this one I have problems I am signed in all my devices and they all work fine, I already checked the computer with different Antivirus programs and have also change my router

Recently, in a Google group I participate in, I stopped being able to reply to the original poster. (I can still reply to the whole group.) I couldn't find any setting within Groups that applied to the issue. One Google search result said it was an issue with Chrome browser "mailto" settings. I am not able to find anything analogous to that in Firefox. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? It looks like my Firefox version is 79.0. Thanks.

My system is Firefox 79, Windows 10. Lazy loading is supported in Firefox since version 75: https://caniuse.com/#feat=loading-lazy-attr

I found that this works on Firefox for lazy loading of images. However, YouTube embedding in an iframe, it doesn't work. I ensured that the video is long way below the fold. Even then, the iframe is loaded upfront. This is the HTML for the iframe:

<iframe loading="lazy" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iQBat7e0MQs" allowfullscreen="" width="480" height="270"></iframe>

On Chrome, lazy loading works as expected for the same web page (on my localhost).

Hello

Such web pages after loaded, show the video embeded window in white with in the middle written : "Click to activate Adobe Flash Player"

It is on Linux Mint 19.3 with Firefox 79.0 , FFMPEG is the last version proposed by the depositories : 7:3.4.8-0ubuntu0.2 Opera show the same issue So I must use Google Chrome for these websites Linux Mint 19.3 installation USB key is not affected

If I accept Flash to display these video, the quality is too bad, compared with HTML5, it is like some 240p enlarged to 1080p

since a recent windows update, firefox doesnt acknowledge my normal camera. a few weeks before the update i used a temporary extra camera for a meeting on teams. i normally have meetings with zoom, teams, and a web-based teaching tool. after the update all 3 had switched to the temporary camera, which is not suitable for face-to-face. however zooms and teams offered both cameras and i was able to correct it. however firefox only shows the one (wrong) camera when i access the teaching tool. It does seem to be a browser problem, because the Edge browser does offer both camera. however I do not want to use the Edge or chrome for various privacy related reasons.
