Want to get inside of FF to remove residuals from deleted apps. Used to be able to do so after entering a phrase like about:blank and then agreeing that you were on your own. After that you could search and usually remove what you were looking for.

I have forgotten how to get to that point inside FF. Can you help me with that.

Thanks, Jack

I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?

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https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?).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.

It was very cool and useful option in old Opera. And while Firefox is awesome in many ways, I couldn't find this feature in it.

Maybe there is an add-on for this, but I couldn't find one. (Actually there was one addon that showed list of images, but the list was incomplete).

In the right corner of the menubar, I want to create a new map here. I cannot see what to do for it, so I have not to go to the pathfinder on the taskbar each time.

Is this possible or not ? Do I have to go everytime to the pathfinder on the taskbar to open a new map ?

Thanks for feedback.

Hi, I have coordination trouble, and trouble typing. It isn't so bad as long as I can correct my typing. Unfortunately, some apps make it hard to select the correct spot and correct my typing. For example, Firefox. if I click on the right spot in the search box, Firefox chooses the whole search phrase, and if I click again, it chooses the whole word, but it alternates between these and never chooses the particular spot where I want to add a letter or delete the previous letter.

Is there any way to change this behavior?

In Google Chrome, whenever I click on a login box, it automatically shows the usernames that I have used in that specific entry box. In Firefox, I have to start entering the username before the username pops up and I click it to fill in the username and password. As a tester, it's arduous to have to type in part of the username every time (1st world problems). Is there a way to replicate what happens in Chrome?

I have a Levono x223 with a short monitor running Window 7. In some websites, such a ebay, only the center portion of a pop up window fraem will show, such as clicking on the tracking number, resulting in my not being able to close the window. So far the only work around is to right click on the window and chose > This frame>Show only this frame> then click on the Go back one page arrow. I would like to find a way to either close the window with a key stroke, or some other simple way to close the window.

Hey guys! I'm a student and so it's useful for me to make my university's student portal as my homepage. However, whenever I start up Firefox, it goes to the 'Authentication required - Mozilla Firefox' popup login area before I can get into my portal. The details are already auto-filled, but I have to hit OK every time. It's more of a quality-of-life and very minor problem, but would there be a way for me to just click the Firefox icon and instantly be logged in automatically? Maybe a custom URL to set as the homepage, or some other way I have to go to make this happen. Thanks so much all! Any replies would be massively appreciated!
