In the Search panel of the Preferences page I have changed my preferred search engine to DuckDuckGo. It will stay as this until I quit and reopen Firefox, when it reverts back to Google. I've tried this a few times but it always goes back. I've looked for a cookie that might be being deleted, but there are none on my machine (that I can see).

I'm running Firefox 72.0.2 on a Mac with Catalina 10.15.2 and also have Firefox apps on an iPhone and iPad.

Can anyone shed any light? Thanks in advance

I haven't been able to delete or add to my bookmarks in years! Despite upgrading my MacBook to the latest ios and updating Firefox to the latest version. I've lived with it until now and just haven't used bookmarks in ages, but I want to start using them again. I can't change any bookmarks, in the menu or the toolbar. None of the bookmark buttons or shortcuts work. How can I fix this?

Thanks to anyone reading this. I depend on several Firefox addons for my livelihood and need them to work.

The problem: Only a select few of my addons work after installing a parallel (older) version of firefox in a separate Program Files folder I called "Firefox 49.02. (why I wanted to do that: there is a specific iMacros version and some scripts that only work with 49.02, and I wanted to use FF 49.02 to run that version of iMacros while I wasn't using the regular updated version (i.e. FF 72).

I didn't expect my current addons to work in FF 49, so I wasn't surprised when they were disabled for that version.

BUT when opening the latest, FF 72, virtually all my addons were also disabled!

All disabled addons, except for 3 of them (out of almost 100), don't even have a blue switch or a way to enable them, even in the context menu, or the manage page (where you can enable auto-updates and see author details and home page etc.).

I ran a "Check for updates" for all addons, and a couple managed to update and enable, though I'm not sure if they were ones that had a switch.

I've attached a screenshot of the addons page showing some without an enable option beside a couple that do.

Note: All these addons worked flawlessly in this prior to installing FF 49

I've searched everywhere but everything is so saturated with fixing the "disabled addons certificate" problems that happened for everyone who *upgraded*. In my case, I installed a parallel downgraded version and the addon's won't work in either version.

Hope things are clear, sorry if I repeated my self. Please let me know any more information needed I am desperately seeking a solution for this.

I had this problem with Safari & Chrome but I was able to fix it. I cannot get rid of "search manager." I have looked into all the items listed that I can find but every time I sign onto Firefox, I'm directed to search manager. I just open a new tab. It is NOT listed as one of the search engines. How can I get rid of it? My home page is a blank page.

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

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:

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.
