Amazon does it. Google does it. Yahoo does it. Virtually every newspaper in the Western World does it. Why does Mozilla fail to do it? I'm referring to your help page navigation system. At the bottom of just about every help page, Mozilla has a little menu to aid in our browsing through their help system page by page (e.g., < 1 2 3 4 ... >). And of course, once a number or arrow is clicked we're more or less quickly navigated to our selected page. BUT THEN WE'RE ABANDONED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TARGET PAGE! Literally DUMPED! Common sense alone, as well as reading newspapers for your entire lives, studying Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese pictographs (yes, this principle has been around that long!), and many more examples, would/should tell the programers that the smart thing, if not the considerate thing, to do would be to automagically position us at the top of the new page. Can you please fix this "little oversight" ASAP? Please?

I added the Google UK search plugin from Mycroft but it doesn't work properly anymore because Google overrides the domain name used for searching with search preferences. It's really slow for me to change my search prefernces to the country I want to search in everytime so I used to have each of theose country domains add an individual seach engines.

I recently found out that just adding gl=GB to my search query will allow me to choose the correct country.

In some previous version of Firefox I could find the search URL somewhere in the profile folder but it doesn't seem to be there now. Is there also a reason why I can't just enter my own search URL and name it in settings?

Every time Firefox updates the user interface gets corrupted and I get half of it in English and the other half in Italian. See the attached image for an example of the problem.

This problems seems to be similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274346 except that when I try to update the add-ons I always get the message that they're already up to date.

Due to the frequency Firefox gets updated resetting it every time this happens as suggested in the previous answer is not an acceptable solution.

Using firefox-esr 68.7.0 on Raspberry PI4, Linux 10 (buster). Firefox handles the online .shtml webpages properly at: http://www.buczynski.com. All webpage files were downloaded to RPi using FileZilla. Used File=>Open File to open the local index.shtml file. This results in repeated new tabs opening. Using upper right X to close firefox results in the application relaunching and attempting recovery repeating the same problem. RPi reboot is the only way to recover from the problem.

There are a number of other .shtml files and they all experience the same behavior when opened locally. If a .shtml file is copied to have a .html extension, the locally opened file displays properly.

Problem does not occur on Windows 7 box, Firefox 75.0 (64 bit) when the index.shtml file is opened locally.

When typing in a text box, if I move the cursor to the beginning or middle of my text and then delete/type, sometimes text will be overwritten somewhere else

I've had this problem for weeks now. At first I thought it was just on Twitter, but recently I noticed it on another website.

When I'm typing in a text box on a web page, if I just type left-to-right and don't move the cursor back or use backspace or anything, it's fine. But if I click back to the beginning/middle of the text to edit it, sometimes my edits will show up somewhere else (not under the cursor), overwriting some other part of my text.

Also, when this happens, I'll often try to select all of the text, copy it, and paste it to another program so I can edit it there, refresh the page, and copy-paste my edited text into the refreshed page, but the first copy-paste never works. When I paste after trying to copy the mangled text, I just get whatever I had copied to the clipboard before that.

Please help, this bug is so disruptive!!

I can neither find the menue bar option in View/Toolbar, nor in View/Toolbar Customize. The instructions to restore the Menu bar to its rightful place at the top, and to have it always that way, does not resolve this issue. Also, I like to work with Firefox maximized.

So... why is this SO difficult to achieve? Please, please help.

I've been waiting for Lazarus to come back to life, but apparently that's not going to happen. It was an extremely useful add-on. Is there an add-on that does the same thing that the legacy Lazarus did?

I would also like to request that all Firefox/Mozilla web pages, like this one, have a dark mode option. My eyes are killing me staring at these bright white pages.

Could you also please provide a way that I can save a list, in a file on my PC, of all my add-ons, passwords, etc. I can't even take a screenshot of them. That's not right. These are my add-on, my passwords. I should be able to save a list of them to a file or, at least take a screenshot of them, if I so choose.

Thank you.

This problem came out of no where.

I always open online PDF file in the firefox browser, and I have the sync function turned on for everything, so I would expect the firefox should work exactly the same at home and in the office.

However, the firefox at home is not displaying online PDF properly, and the same online PDF is displayed just fine in my office.

I tested with disabling all add-on, theme and so on, and they didn't fix my PDF displaying problem at home.

I can't figure out what happened, please help.

Btw, I'm posting this in the office.

Stupid "Find more search engines" won't give me the option to browse list of available search engines alphanumerically. I can only browse by "Relevance" (which is useless when there's no way to tell it which website's search engines you're looking for), Most Users (Youtube is pretty popular, right, so it should at least be somewhere on the first ten pages. It isn't), Recently updated, Top rated and Trending.

I don't want to scroll through 91 pages of results just to add one stupid search engine.
