This is weird: If I search for 24601 in Google or DuckDuckGo in Firefox, I get a blank page after results quickly disappear.. Bing search works. Search terms 24600 or 24602 work. Chrome with Google or DuckDuckGo works.

Apparently the Simple Search add-on is causing the problem. All works fine if disabled.

Greetings everyone,

I'd like to add more voices to the "listen" function in reader view.

I'm on a Win10 system and have some other (English) voices installed. However, they won't show in the pull-down menu (see screenshot).

How do I get these voices to work in reader view!

Thanks in advance!

I have a PC with 2 monitors, so sometimes I get to work on one monitor while I keep the second one with a video, a news site, or whatever... I have noticed that when I open FireFox on Monitor One, and drag out a Tab to create a second FireFox Window and then a site on Monitor One ask me to drag and drop something, FireFox Crashes... at first sight I was on the believe that it was random, but with the last update I notice that when I drag something from my desktop to the FireFox Window 1, instead of the picture of file, it appears a shadow of the FireFox Window on Monitor 2... I hope a I'm being clear, but if not... let me tell you how this happens this at daily... "On Monitor One I open Firefox, open WhatsApp, a client send me a link to a video, I open Link in a tab, drag out the tab to create a separated Firefox Window and move it to Monitor 2 to keep the chat whit client on WhatsApp while video keeps running on monitor 2, I see something and take a screenshot and save it (on desktop, images, documents any place), take the file and drag it to Whatsapp, but instead of the file it looks like im dragging back the tab i previously drag out, and then FireFox crashes..." So FireFox Crashes several times a day, I don't know if there is a way to fix this problem, or if this is a major issue (and if it is, i'd like to you let me know how to report the bug)

Search engine shortcuts in address bar

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

Здравствуйте. Если я отпраляю голосовые сообщения с ПК Вконтакте, то у пользователей они открываются только с ПК (иногда с артефактами звука) или с телефона, но через браузер. С телефона через приложения мои голосовые не открываются. Об этом мне писали все практически. Так происходит с браузера Хром и Firefox. С Оперы всё работает нормально.

I want to use containers more, and I've seen references on Mozilla information pages and news articles to assigning websites to always open in specific containers . Unfortunately, I can't find the feature in settings and container settings seem bare bones. Was this feature ever implemented or was it removed at some point? Is it coming back?

I am experiencing a Captcha problem on numerous websites. For example sending an email or query on a website where it is provided to do so under the Contact Us tab. I would type everything, hit submit, and the first notice that Captcha was required is the alert to say Captcha or reCaptcha has not been recognized (or other wording to that effect). Is it possible that the add-on from Firefox for this app is causing the problem on my Windows 10 desktop computer.

I have installed the Evernote Web Clipper add-on but it is not showing upper right menu bar of my browser. I have the latest versions of both Firefox and Evernote Web Clipper. I've checked in the add-on preferences that the add-on is turned but it still does not show up in my menu bar and I therefore have no way of using the add-on. Does anyone know if Evernote Web Clipper is having issues and if so how to resolve them?

Been watching streams for a while. Twitch.TV works perfectly well, Piczel.TV is alright too. I do however have constant issues with any kind of live stream when using Picarto.TV- It seems like the stream just doesn't want to load for long- it will work for a little but and then start an endless buffering cycle which can only be broken by refreshing the entire website, rinse and repeat. I tried cleaning my cookies once which didn't help. Using Firefox's installer to run a "fix" didn't help either, and a fresh install *did* work, but only for a little bit before it started happening again. The option in Picarto to switch the HLS player tech to mp4 doesn't work. Any advice?

When reloading a news website home page, Firefox returns to near the top of the page rather than at the article previously selected. This occurs only on this webpage, but does not happen when using MS Edge. On another PC, Firefox reloads normally on the same website. Both machines have the most recent Firefox updates.

I have a laptop with two cameras and 3 sound inputs. On websites that use webrtc (eg. meet.google.com), a permission dialog pops up to allow or deny access to a microphone and camera.

Those permission dialogs have a drop-down, but the drop-down has only one choice. Rebooting re-organizes which camera or microphone is in the drop-down list. Probably because of USB wakeup.

So to choose which camera to use I have to reboot and hope the right one is in the drop-down.
