I recently reinstalled firefox and now my search suggestions won't work properly. They only seem to work when i check the box "Top sites" in the adress bar section of privacy and security. The suggested sites doesn't change when i check other boxes. It either shows a set selection of sites when i have "Top sites" checked or nothing when it isn't checked. The set of sites it shows when it's checked contains some popular sites and some sites from my browsing history. The list doesn't update and just stays the same.

I want to have "Top sites" turned off and have it so that my most visited sites are suggested first.

Please help, i really want that setting back!

Hello

PDFs open inside browser even after uninstalling Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Any idea how to stop this? I have not been able to identify any PDF plugin/addon and the options for PDF files in Firefox are all to 'Ask'.

Thanks!

Hi all!

I started using Firefox a few months ago to try and get away from Chrome (great move!). I use it a lot for work, but also a fair amount for personal use. Is it possible to create different ‘profiles’ on your account?

For example, I would like to use the Sync feature to sync my work Bookmarks to my phone and PC, but I want to keep those separate from my personal ones. Allowing Firefox to toggle between a work profile and personal profile would help this out.

I’m using Firefox for PC and iOS.

Thanks Casey

When reopening Firefox, all tabs from the previous session are opened again. Say, I used wikipedia and closed that tab, it wil reappear when restarting firefox. Since I am frequently opening and closing new tabs, this leads to a great deal of tabs (of which only a few are wanted) at every startup. How can this be prevented?

I get a blank white page when I open Firefox. It loads my home page when I first turn on PC. It will not load my homepage once I've closed firefox and the re-open it. It loads my homepage if I disable add-ons. The only addons i have are OpenH264 and Wildvine Decryption. I disable those but that doesn't help. Restore previous session is un-checked. I've gone into config and made sure browser.startup.page was set to 1.

I want to make my secondary email address for my firefox account my primary email address. I searched for help, and found that I am supposed to just select my secondary email address and click on "make primary". But when I sign in to "manage account", my only option for secondary email address is to "add". I already have done that, and it definitely won't let me do it again, but also it doesn't show up so there is no way to change it. Please help. I'm new to Firefox and generally like it, but this is very frustrating as I keep getting caught in a circle.

How to launch firefox automatically in LOW PRIORITY? Before, it was not complicated with a single optimized process. But for a year now, Firefox has been configured in relation to Gaming PCs with 8-16GB of RAM, 4K video and Games which uses PNG of 4MB in animation. It is almost a luxury to be able to use several software at the same time (photoshop, windows, firefox ...). And I'm not talking about all the crap associated with protecting flouted data.

NOTA: Your single process option does not work: it already generates 6 which are not optimized. When you delete the biggest one, all the others close. So I don't see the point of this configuration.
