Themes do not stay locked since several updates back. It is ridiculous that every time you open the browser you need to go to settings and get 'dark theme' back on, when it is the only theme many of us with visual problems can use. MANY people have complained about this (read your own reviews). FIX IT! It's doubtless a five minute job to put this back the way it was.

Whatever you did to Friefox, you broke the ability for me to have it keep a set of urls open at start up. You disabled a very useful feature.

That is how you product worked until this week. Now, it sucks. And why does the header say that my options are controlled by my organization ? This is my private computer, belongs to me, not any organization !

I wanted to make a lengthy post on a website today, but I accidentally hit CTRL + R twice which bypassed the "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave — information you’ve entered may not be saved." safety net. Is there a way to deliberately disable any and all refresh shortcuts and buttons when a safety net shows up, so my buttery fingers don't ruin my day to it's absolute maximum?

I want safety nets to be deliberately annoying.

Hello, a couple of years ago I signed up for Pocket Premium so that I could make use of the full-text feature, but I found that full-text search didn't work, which meant that Premium useless for my purposes. This was acknowledged by Pocket Support, and my subscription payment was refunded.

Before I try again it would be interesting to know whether the full-text search has been fixed and now works properly as advertised at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pocket-premium-full-text-search

Thank you.

The Firefox "New tab" page shows quick-navigation buttons. At the top right of each button, the 3-dot menu has an Edit option. On the edit dialog is a link "Use a custom image", which then prompts you for a image URL.

I've tried pointing this to images in my Google Photos (a 1024x1024 .JPG), using an open-shareable link, but it doesn't work.

a) What format does the icon image have to be in? b) Are there any limitations on the URL? c) Is there a way to use a locally stored icon image?

Any guidance would be most welcome! Thanks :)

I'm a student, which means I'm constantly accessing my university's library page. I've run into a weird URL autocomplete issue that I can't seem to resolve.

Beginning to type "library" in the URL bar leads to Firefox autocompleting with a past college's library site that I haven't used in years. It's not in my bookmarks, I've deleted all its site data in Firefox's history, I've tried the "shift + delete" trick, but nothing's making this autocomplete go away. It doesn't seem like Firefox Suggest, but something else.

All I want is for my school's library to show up as the autocomplete. It's so annoying to navigate away from a website I haven't used in years every time.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

I just had to clean install Firefox after having problems. I've pretty much set it up how I want it, except when I quit Firefox and then re-open it all the tabs come back. Which I don't want. The box in the settings page for opening with previous session is unchecked. What else am I missing? I re-started my computer just in case that was an issue but the problem continues. Thanks

The new selection "Copy without site tracking" may eliminate certain codes, but does not remove all invasive data (my term). Consider this common URL occurrence:

link text

The new filter does absolutely nothing to this and when I pass this kind of URL on to others, I do not want to include all that crapola. Currently I have to manually edit the link, which can really get tiresome when passing on a lot of links.

Is there a way to modify anything in Firefox to accommodate this?

Hi! I finally decided to switch to Firefox :) So far it's great, yet there are a few things that are different from Chrome (that I've used for more than 10 years). Some of the things I found already, but there are others that are obscure, and I would appreciate your help in finding them!

1. When typing something in the search bar and clicking the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab, it auto switches to that tab. I found settings for auto-switching from bookmarks and a few other places, but this one still eludes me.

2. Reopen closed tab. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not open the last tab that I've closed (only some random one?). I have no idea how it should work, but on Chrome it just opens the last closed tab. Is it possible to change this behavior to work the same way?

3. I have multiple monitors (probably like most people nowadays). When I want to move a tab to another monitor, so it makes a new window it's super weird. Sometimes when I move it over another programs window it just doesn't work, sometimes if I move too quickly it also doesn't work. Any way to fix this?

Other than that I've enjoyed my stay so far :)

When I open a new browser and start to type www in the URL firefox auto suggests youtube.com instead of google.com. This is something that has just started with the new update.

I am trying to migrate from a very old version of Firefox (v. 55) to the current one, but there is an app that is more helpful to me that all the other features combined. That is the "Tab Grouping" app that will not run in any version of FF higher than v. 55.

In my work, which often includes a tremendous amount of research, I need to be able to quickly go from one group of tabs to another. If I had to open all these sites manually, that would take the better part of the day and frankly I don't have near the mental capacity to remember the tremendous number of tabs. I have had a couple replies (Thanks!) to this question sometime back, but unfortunately none were even close in performance.

So, can anyone direct me to an app that will allow very quick movement from different sets of windows/tab groups (please see screen shots below)? Is there anyway that I can get this app to work in Legacy mode? I have several other old apps that work perfectly well in this mode.
