Suggestion: Make Find tool stay on, from tab to tab.

I find it annoying that I have the Find tool on, then open another page in a tab and it's off, or navigate away from a page and have the Find box go away. That box isn't very big and in the way, and it would much better to keep that box open ALL THE TIME. Having to press CTRL+F evertime I need it, is painful. Okay, so I'm lazy! But I don't think it would impair the user's ability to view a page. That row it sits in is as high as only one line of text!

How about implementing this, Mozilla? I mean, your browser is the browser of choice. It's superb at viewing images and retrieving image information. It plays Youtubes and other videos flawlessly. It's as fast as Google's Chrome at performing a search across the net. Firefox wrocks! It would only wrock a little more if one could enable this feature and leave it on all the time. I do a lot of research, and finding a phrase on a page at Wikipedia or elsewhere is performed often. So let's allow new tabs to have the tool on if it is already on, and let's leave it on until we purposely turn it off.

Please?

In firefox 77 I could choose different search engine for example duckduckgo as default search engine in private mode. In 78.0.1 this setting is missing, no way to search selected text privately or set different search engine for private mode. Only workaround is to go to about:config and enable "browser.search.separatePrivateDefault.ui.enabled". This fixes both problems. Is this still in beta and not officially available or are my settings wrong?

With the new Gmail update, Firefox 27.0.1 no longer allows me to sign into my account, as it says my browser does not support Javascript. Is there any method or add-on I can use to enable Javascript on my old Firefox version? I tried using about:config, but I forgot my password and cannot log in.

Hello, I am using firefox in my laptop running windows 7. There I cannot make it to fullscreen mode. When I try to do that, it looks like the attached image. That strange thing comes in up-right corner, covering the controls, and blocks the whole window going fullscreen. The problem disappears after an update or changing the theme or reinstalling firefox completely. But it starts again after few days. Feeling irritated.

This was asked in 2011, but the solutions are not compatible with the present 2017 version. I routinely Override the colors specified by the webpages going back and forth between "Only with High Contrast Themes" and "Always". I'd like to create either a custom hot-key (preferred) or a menu bar toggle button to go back and forth between these two choices. The option chosen needs to be compatible with the latest version of FireFox. Any suggestions?
