My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.

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 want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Hi,

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

This is less of a question than it is negative feedback.

The new print experience allows me to enter a page scale, but it removed the previous ability to pick a page scale from a drop-down. It also closes as soon as the print is compete, retaining the manually entered scale.

Here's my old process: Load the page that needs 70% scale. Set the scale from drop-down. Print. Return the scale to 100% from drop-down. Close. The next page does not require any special attention, it will print from a single button push.

New process: Load the page that needs 70% scale. Open "more settings." Remove hands from mouse to type in 70. Print. Next page now requires undoing the first. Open page that needs 100% scale, open "more settings", remove hands from mouse to type in 100. Print.

The old process took 3 extra clicks. The new process takes 6 extra clicks plus moving hands to the keyboard. Talk about a "first world problem!" Nevertheless, there was no need to take something that was working well and make it less functional.

I don't like Firefox's UI that much. Hence, I installed the Tabliss extension to make it look better. I wanted Tabliss to open whenever Firefox starts. So, I took the link from the "open tabliss whenever firefox starts" setting in tabliss. But, whenever I set the homepage and new windows settings to Tabliss and click the home button, it takes me to the default homepage. How do you fix this? Or could you release an update fixing the error. This error is not present in Chrome.

I am running Windows 10 Pro 19042.746. Firefox is version 85.0.1 64 bit.

I would like to pre-configure firefox so that it has my custom settings and bookmarks.

I'm not sure if this is the correct method to pre-configure settings:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\autoconfig.js

pref("general.config.filename", "firefox.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.cfg

Is this the correct method to pre-configure the default user profile? Where can I find a list or generate output so I can see configurable settings?

How to pre-configure firefox window size?

How can I pre-configure my booksmarks on the bookmark tools bar?

Thanks in advance, -Kevin

My dad did somethink with Avast antivirus(at least he said so) and after that we have no search engine available. If you try to type something in a serch bar you can only open direct links. Default search engine button in the settings does not respond and even following instructions on the site I can't add new search engines. Tried Google, YouTube and DuckDuckGo but to no avail. There is just no option to add new search engine.

P.S. Don't know how to reach russian-speaking support, so screenshots are in russian with some explanations on top.

Hi, I've been using Firefox Nightly for long time, but recently I haven't open it too often. Today I opened again and noticed that the Add-ons that are usually on the right side of the bar are gone, but I still see them on Preferences -> Manage Your Extensions. I cannot find a way to put them back on the Toolbar. My concern is with Add-ons like Metamask that I usually use to sign in some websites. I cannot click on it from where it is on Preferences.

As shown in the picture I'm trying to readd duckduckgo.com as a search engine to Firefox, but the suggestions in form of a plus sign won't show up right next to the magnifying glass.

This has been confirmed on popular webpages such as duckduckgo.com or bing.com, but for some sort of reason it shows on yahoo.com. (That's where the picture is from).

Deinstalling and reinstalling didn't add duckduckgo.com to the list of search engines and I don't want to lose my settings, since I'm not using a Firefox account (despite using it here for the purpose of asking my question).

Any suggestions?
