The add-on I have installed (Group Speed Dial) has an option to set new tab url but setting it to about:home doesn't work as I expected. It just loads a blank screen. I have tried some other add-ons too but they also behave the same way. How to fix this?

Add-ons in version 79 are not holding their settings.

No script, foxclocks in particular.

Every time I log out & log back in later I have to reset everything.

I don't have time to be resetting the add-ons all the time.

I was using Sync thinking it would be easier but I found it to screw things up worse so I logged out of FF acct..

Is anyone else having issues with add-ons holding their settings in ver. 79.0?

How do I selectively open these links in background tabs?

I am using "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" so some links (ones that normally open in new windows) open in tabs in the background instead of immediately getting focus. I am using this functionality for purposes of one specific website. Unfortunately, I do not like this behavior to happen on all websites. I tried turning "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" off and then control+clicking and middle clicking on the links, but this is not working to open them in the background. Is there any other way I can turn off "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" but selectively open the links I am using in the background? Perhaps there is a button other than 'control' I can hold while clicking or there is an extension?

Hi, In the options menu in the setting "choose how Firefox handles the files you download...." how can I add a content type? I have a content type extention for .cbz file. I'd like to add .cbr file to the list. I download many of these and am always prompted to "open or save file". It gets tiring. Is there a way I can add suggested files to save? thank you

Trying to play a flash game with WASD and other alpha character controls, but every time I hit a "letter" on the keyboard a Ctrl+F find bar opens across the bottom of the screen searching for the letter. When I mouse over the "X" in the bottom right corner to close this, it says "Close Find Bar." I cannot find a way to disable this automatically appearing find function. Every search shows just under 2000 results and they are all of the INDIVIDUAL words, "close" and "find" and "bar." Yet not a single one for the "close find bar" phrase. Help me disable this function please.
