I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

Any help would be appreciated.

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

My old computer crashed. I lost all my passwords. However, I had signed up for a firefox account and told it to save all my pasword and bookmarks.

Now I'm on another computer, I can log into firefox but I can see no place whatsoever to sync the online data I saved from the old computer to this one.

How is this done? None of the articles online even remotely match what I am seeing.

Whenever I end up on a mozilla site (for example, this one, or the addons page), the browser arbitrarily decides to disable all my addons. what the f**k! Now I can't navigate the page at all! utter discrimination. plz help

My control + F function doesn't highlight the search term once I've typed it in. Nor does "Quick find" nor "Highlight when typing". I click the up or down arrow, but no reaction - not even a change of colour in the find bar or "no results".

I've tried selecting and deselecting all the search refinements on the bar. Tried entering a term that's visible in the window. Tried disabling the extensions I've installed since this problem first arose. No highlights. And I haven't recently changed my preferences.

I'm running Version 81.0 (64-bit) Linux Mint 1.0.

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.

Yesterday we were forced to reinstall Ubuntu Linux. Was using 16.04 which had many problems. installed 20.04.1 in the same partition. It upgraded Firefox from version 80 to 81. Changed nothing else.

We had previously saved the passwords as a .csv file on an external drive. Each row had only three items: the URL, login name, and password. We have TWO different .csv files saved months apart.

After enabling "Import from a file" in Lockwise, we try to load either known-good .csv file. There is no error message and no other information--the browser window blinks and the login/password column remains totally empty. Also tried the .json file--same result.

What is going on here?

I have an account on the following website: http://forums.wheresgeorge.com/forum.php

I rarely can get it to function normally on my laptop when using firefox. Usually a white page comes up with a list of threads, rather than the usual forum interface, and then if I try to navigate further, I get a 404 error message. I saw a suggestion somewhere to look at the web console information but I don't know enough about the types of information presented there to interpret it. If anyone can assist, I would be delighted. I copy/pasted the stuff I saw when I pulled up the web console.

When I download almost any type of file, Firefox nicely asks whether I would like to always save the file, or always open it with some program. But for .jpg files, it makes a blanket, hard-coded assumption that I do not want to preserve my choice. I cannot add .jpg to the list of actions in the preferences. The authors of the browser forcibly mandate that a .jpg download must go to a popup, and the user's preferred action cannot be maintained internally.

This is a mistake. I realize someone thought it was a very rational idea. it is not. This is a bug.

How can I work around this mistake in the Firefox design?

I am building a new website on an Ubuntu 20.04 server with a LEMP stack. To test the web server (nginx) I set up a simple test site named nginxtest.com. Nginx server block tests are successful and there are no errors in any logs, so it appears that it is working properly. However, when I attempt to show the site by putting the site name into Firefox, all I get is a notice from Verizon that it has no knowledge of the website (which it shouldn't as it's not a registered name).

I want FIrefox to search localhost for my test site, but the only way I can make it work is to change the network-dns-native-is-localhost setting to true (default is false) in the about:config settings. When I change that setting, my test site pops right up, but then I can't reach any site on the internet.

How can I force Firefox to direct web searches to localhost before going out to the internet?
