Is there a way I could make the browser automatically focus the address bar whenever I open a new window with a custom URL set? I have an extension that both clears the address bar and sets the cursor focus to the address bar, allowing me to type my query as soon as I open a new tab, but it does not work for new windows.

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. I have a Logitech - G502 Hero gaming mouse that, when used with Chrome, automatically mapped 2 buttons on it to Page Back and Page Forward. In Firefox, those buttons now invariably start the locked scrolling function.

Is there a way to change the mouse shortcuts so they function like they did in Chrome?

I am trying out Firefox Relay. I have requested to change my email for both Bangood and Aliexpress but the verification emails are not arriving from either one. For one, I used the email address to mail myself from another account, and I did get that. It seems that somewhere someone is blocking the emails from these two Chinese companies. Since I want to use alias's to protect my privacy and manage spam, the Chinese accounts where the first I thought needed extra security... Thanks, Grant

I use multiple profiles. Before I updated if I tried to open a 2nd session of the same profile it would block it and display a message that said something like session already open

After the update it no longer blocks it and allows multiple sessions of the same profile. How do you disable this? I do want it to block multiple sessions of the same profile.

Thank you

Opened Firefox this morning and had two tabs from Grammarly asking why I had uninstalled the add-on. Checked in the pull-down menu and, yes, Grammarly is gone. I haven't uninstalled it. How was it uninstalled?

Additional comment - The Duck Duck Go privacy feature was turned on. I turned that off two or three months ago. Again - how?

Bonus question - How would Grammerly know it was installed?

Hi. I believe my Firefox browser was updated - it now is version 82.0.2 and I now have a folder labelled Old Firefox Data on my desktop. The update lost all of my settings and add-ons. So, I changed the settings back to the former state. And, I downloaded / installed the add-ons, which show as "Enabled" . But, the add-ons don't appear on the toolbar.

If I go to Options and set Enhance Tracking Protection to Standard and History to Remember History, then I can 1) see the add-ons in the Customize section and 2) successful place the add-ons on the toolbar. But, after I vhange Enhanced Tracking Protection back to Strict and History to Never Remember, then the add-ons again disappear from the toolbar.

Can you please advise me of the fix to this problem.

Thanks much

Firefox will forget setting to open PDF files with Foxit Reader

I use Firefox 82.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 and Foxit Reader 10.0.1.35811 for reading PDF files. In the FF settings I set the handling of PDF documents to "Open with Foxit Reader 10.0". Once I have done that and click on a PDF file I will be asked what to do with the PDF and I confirm again to open it with Foxit.

That usually works for the moment but FF will always forget this setting again. I have configured FF to use Foxit at least five times over the last days days. But the next day FF will just download the PDF file again and do nothing with it (not even ask me what to do with it).

Any help is much appreciated.

I'm trying to be efficient when switching between multiple Firefox windows on a Mac. On Windows, it's easy, just hit Alt+Tab and the OS handles the most-recently-used window switch.

On a Mac, there's Command+Shift+~, but it iterates the windows in the fixed order, which is definitely not what I want. So far I have to use Mission Control to handle that, and it's still not good enough.

So, is there a way to iterate over windows in the "most recently used" order also?

Can anyone help me on this to get this extension loaded again?
