When I press New Tab, it always sends me to the Firefox Default Homepage. I only have 2 options for the New Tab page. The Firefox Default and a blank. I would like the option to choose what page is displayed when I press New Tab.

Is this possible?

Some sites like OP.GG have a black stroke on letters. I've already looked at other forums and options.


Settings > Language and Appearance > Fonts and Colors > Advanced > Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above. This method does not work along with disabling high contrast (disabled already)

Any sort of help would be appreciated except telling me what I already did. Thank you

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.

You've sent me an email recommending 'The Forget Button' but where is it? It's all very well saying how good it is. I certainly don't have one where it is in your video so how do I install it? Grrr so frustrating.

Ditto the Relay thing for burn email addresses. The little video goes on about how good it is but where on earth is the facility?

Soo madenning!

Any help gratefully recieved.

If I copy and paste any two words or more into the search bar on the new tab it goes to google.co.uk as that is set but only searches for the phrase minus the first word. If I paste it into the address bar everything is ok. If I do the same with a one word term the search bar does nothing having "lost" that word and the address bar works fine.

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

Hi, Guys

I just got an email from Mozilla telling me about their new upcoming service to remove personal information from the web. In that email there was a link to someone's "free personal data removal workbook and credit freeze guide". I clicked on that link, and Norton blocked it as being a "dangerous webpage".

Norton also says "You attempted to access: https://gate.sc/?url=https%3A%2F%2Finteltech..."

And that, "This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page."

So, what's going on here? Please let me know.

I just added the "Word Count" add-on. I am supposed to be able to select text on any site, right click and a notification will let me know the word count of the text.

Here is my problem: When I select text and right click, I see "Word Count" it as an option, but I don't get a notification when I click on it.

So far I have:

-disabled and enabled the add-on. -gone to the notification settings. I only see an option to add a website--no option to make an exception for an add-on. -restarted firefox and am using the latest version.

Also: I don't have any other add-ons.

Can you help me? Thanks!

I recently reset my computer because of performance issues. When relaunching FireFox, MSN is now my Home Page. I never selected or used MSN, but its there and I can't get rid of it. I have tried several times via the Settings tab, I have also tired on several occasions to drag a different tab to the Home Page Icon, but MSN just won't go away. I also tried to restore to an earlier version of FireFox, but no success. When working on the Settings tab, there is no "save" option. Is that normal?
