My company have a shorthand for company links, known as go links. They are shorthand for long internal llinks so instead of typing full url we can just say go/jira, go/firefox etc.

In older version of firefox when I used to type such links, after finish typing "go/" It used to give option to open as url not a Google search but in recent release it doesn't give me that option anymore but instead directly goes to Google search which is super annoying.

Chrome handles this very well as its been three years to switch to firefox I really dont want to switch back to Chrome but this feature will kind of forcing me to move back as firefox making things harder.

Hope attached screenshots will help.

Thank you!.

How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

I've been using Firefox Developer version for some time now on Mac OS and have never had a problem like this before.

However, since version 80, Firefox Developer fails to render the new css after a change and save has been made to the style sheet even after multiple browser refreshes. Caching on the server end has been disabled so I'm really trying to find a solution to this issue as it has forced me to find alternative browsers to develop with like Safari since Firefox Developer has become unusable for me.

I've gone through and performed manual cache flushes on the browser from the settings/preferences panel. On occasion, by quitting Firefox Developer edition and relaunching it will then render the new changes but only after a quit and relaunch and sometimes using a private window as well. This is happening with multiple hosting services so it's not any particular provider.

This is most annoying. I've even reset Firefox Developer a number of times to default settings without any extensions etc. and still the problem exists.

Earlier version of Firefox Developer don't seem to be exhibiting this problem. I'm not running any proxy's or special configurations with the settings either.

Any assistance to finding a workaround would be greatly appreciated or I'm going to have to stop using Firefox Developer version altogether.

Thank you,

Over the past 6 months or so, I've noticed that I occasionally get corrupt images where the images are replaced by semitransparent, randomly colored vertical lines, as seen in the provided screenshot. I am unable to reliably reproduce the issue, and it seems to happen somewhat randomly, but recently its started to occur more frequently.

I am on the latest version of Windows 10 Pro, and all of my drivers are up to date, to the best of my knowledge. I'm not entirely sure this is a Firefox-specific issue, and I seem to remember the same problem occurring in the default windows 10 photo viewing app, but I'm not certain about that, it might have just occurred when I opened my images for viewing in Firefox.

I appreciate any help or insight anyone can provide, thanks!

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

Hi,

If I already use a password manager service, why would I be required to have something similar with Firefox, I don't understand, why would I even need a password with Firefox, is it for added security? I am using a few Firefox extensions, is it for that? Every time I sign on to Firefox browser, I'm prompted for a password. When I headed over to settings to cancel it, a message said not to. This feels more like a pain in the b**t?

Please advise Thanks for helping

Every time I open Firefox, a javascript from IcelandSue.com tries to connect to the internet. I've refreshed Firefox, cleared the cache, used NoScript to block this script, but it always remains. I've found the site listed as a Data Miner and would like to delete it from where ever it has installed itself inside of Firefox. Thank you, jason

pressing Ctrl+F doesn't open the "find in this page" toolbar, on any page.

  • doesn't work in safemode, either
  • DOES work when selecting from the "Edit" menu (where it shows the shortcut as being ctrl+f)
  • I read online that Ctrl+G might work? this one has mixed results for me... I think it's working like F3, repeating the previous search, if there is one, and if it has any matches, and only if neither of those are true, opens the "find in this page" toolbar
  • pressing "/" and apostrophe both do their things (but not when an input/textarea has focus, of course)
