Hello

I'd like to ask you to help me disable a keyboard shortcut. I have CoolerMaster masterkeys keyboard and it has Play/Pause key that can be used by clicking Fn + Insert. Before the last update the function worked as it should - when I was listening to music using either Spotify or Foobar and used the play/pause key, it only had effect on those applications (even though I had Firefox open).

Now, since last update, the shortcut also has effect on Firefox - for example I'm listening to music with Foobar and have a Youtube tab in Firefox with a video stopped and when I use the shortcut - play/pause is done on both of the applications - Foobar and Firefox. It is really annoying and unwanted behavior.

I'm not sure if it has something to do with Firefox. But maybe there is some kind of configuration that can be applied to mitigate this behavior?

I'm using Windows 10, just so you know.

Thank you,

Aside from the general usability issues caused by nags screens and constant prompts in software, for various specific reasons I need to disable the update nags that appear every day in Firefox.

This used to be possible with a simple reminders setting in Firefox, which the developers now appear to have removed.

How can this be done now?

Thanks.

I have every single autofill option disabled, but it keeps creating and showing autofill dialogues under text entry fields.

Other articles say to disable history. Do I actually have to turn off Firefox remembering my history to get those stupid autofill boxes to stop showing up? It's useful to go back and reopen a page you closed. Plus everyone with history disabled looks like a porn addict.

Any help would be useful. Cheers!

So my pc restarted overnight due to automatic windows updates, and it appears that from that point at midnight, to 10am PST, most of my firefox addons have stopped working/functioning all together.

Currently running the following: Alternate player for Twitch.tv BetterTTV Dark Reader Duckduckgo Privacy essentials facebook container privacy badger Reddit Enhancement Suite Ublock origin.

I've tried disabling all extensions and running them one at a time, with very little luck. None of them seem to function any more and clicking icons for the addons seems to just 'hang' on a loading page of sorts (See photo). Ublock options pictured in the second photo just hang on that setting page.

Thanks for any help

Hi, We use Firefox for different Web-Interfaces in our Studio. The used Computer is not (and never will be) connected to the Internet. From time to time we get a message in the upper right corner, that tells us, that Firefox is not able to make updates, because it’s not connected to the Internet. (What we allready know) Is it possible to stop this message from appearing? (It’s annoying, when there is no Keyboard or mouse available to click it away) Thanks for your help!

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Search engine shortcuts in address bar

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

How do I get the system menu to appear also on Firefox, instead of this Firefox menu nonsense?

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.

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!

So I've recently updated to v83 and find out that that annoying address bar is back. I don't really want to use Chrome.css because I'm not good at programming or anything like that and I am afraid I might break my browser.

I have the solutions for v77 on my about:config and tried toggling them true/false and restarting my computer but I think Firefox "fixed" those workarounds.

Anybody have any new suggestions? Or am I stuck with this (I wouldn't mind it so much but it goes to it automatically when I open a new tab and that annoys me. I'm happy the history part of the workaround is still working cause I do NOT want anyone knowing my history. That's my business not theirs).
