I need to find all doctor's appointments for a specific doctor in 2018 and 2019. However, the Firefox search tool only allows me to search within one current calendar page. How can I do a search to find and locate a specific name within ALL my calendar pages across multiple years at one time, like I can do in my Microsoft Outlook calendar?

I'm use to have many Firefox windows open at the same time (usually 5-8), each one with dozen of tabs and it's difficult remember in which window a certain tab is open. So I think it would be useful hava a command to list all windows and tab open and be able to save this list in another program (text, spreadsheet, presentation or whatever. I searched in Firefox help, but find nothing: is my fault (so, please, suggest ho to do it) or a lack of feature? Many thanks

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

The current 'on-the-fly' status bar has many issues, especially with infinite (or long timeout) loading/hanging of resources on a website with fixed layout. Especially when the given website is more of a webapplication, where you can't scroll, and sometimes the footer provides you with essential dynamic information.

The common feature request is to add the possibility of a fixed status bar, for people that want that (you can leave the default as is).

And my own idea: make the URL in status bar hover on top of the address bar (or part of it, for example aligned to the right so it's never on top of the domain of the current website). This may sound controversial at first, but I think it's definitely the better way in terms of UI design, and makes a lot of sense especially when you are hovering links in a website.

But in any case, everything is better than a browser that forcedly displays something that hides part of the website and cannot be manually removed.

Even the ability to just turn it off for loading resources, and only display it during hovering of links would be a huge improvement! Who cares about the resources that are being loaded anyway, you could always press F12 for that. Or make a popup menu while you hover the address bar, that will show all the resources currently being loaded.

This is seriously a huge design flaw. I hope my message came across.

how to fix losing all your typed work in firefox session when you hit the 'backspace' key

the problem with firefox going to a previous page and deleting all your typed work when you hit the backspace key is a known issue, for over eight years, and firefox has no intention of fixing the problem despite countless user complaints. the resulting loss in thousands of man-hours of work is not acceptable under any circumstances

but what is unacceptable aside from all the lost man-hours is that instead of mozilla immediately fixing the problem, it has allowed it to linger. i can no longer afford to use mozilla software. it's easier for me to delete all mozilla software from each and every one of my computers than have to keep track of the browser.backspace_action key for all of them. i'm going through all my drives and deleting everything to do with firefox

here's how to do it: download vivaldi browser and import all of your firefox settings: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11v63-MFUkOGVRm4Oia5EuW_ZTqVZosXl/view?usp=sharing

use this walkthrough to import all of your firefox tabs into vivaldi: https://browserengine.net/how-to-import-tabs-from-chrome-to-firefox-and-vice-versa/

search through all your drives for "mozilla" and "firefox", and delete everything, esp. having to do with "installer" or "setup" https://drive.google.com/file/d/1S5iAcWjC_wh0vNiWJujR-xk7lfhgihPJ/view?usp=sharing

there. you will never destroy your work by using the backspace key, and you can edit your typed work without fear of mozilla hijacking your browser and destroying all of your work

you can go the extra mile by putting every correspondence from mozilla that concerns donations into the spam folder

I had to reset my computer to factory settings. Prior to this when I clicked on the email address box on the Google sign in page, I was offered my google email address and my hotmail address to select. Then I just entered my password. After the reset, it no longer does this forcing me to type the email address each time. How do I get back to having the email addresses offered when clicking on the email address box? Thanks.

I have been trying to get here for 3 hours to ask a menial question. I was attempting to sign in using my email and password for sync and this led to finding out my AT&T mail was on the fritz which then led to me not receiving reset emails anyway when attempting to reset my password for this account which I had not yet created. PHEW!!

So, my original query.

Is there an app in the works for Android Firefox to facilitate streaming from the web to an Amazon Fire Stick?

If I wasn't so stoopid I could have wrote the app myself in the time it took to ask this question.

I have a website which makes ajax requests to some endpoints which can take more than a minute (depending on how busy the server might be). In the recent version of firefox (81), it seems like after about a minute, the request appears to time out without an error message. I checked against other browsers and none seem to have the same issue.

Was this behavior expected out of version 81? I don't see anything in the release notes about this kind of change.

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.
