Hello, In Chrome, when I highlight text on a web page, right click & press 'search', I can make it default to Google search. But in Firefox, the same action always defaults to Bing search. I want it to search in Google, not Bing, not finding an option in settings that addresses this. I've got the default search engine set to Google in Firefox settings, but the action of highlighting text, right-clicking & searching that text always defaults to Bing no matter what I do. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks.

Firefox creates copies of bookmark folders, e.g there were 72 folders called Other Bookmarks. They seemed to all be copies of one of two folders. Searching bookmarks takes too long to do. And it takes quite a time to delete these copies. And if I do delete them all, will new ones be created? What causes these copies to be created?

Almost every site I go to with Firefox I get a "Warning This site has been reported as phishing". It can be a .gov site, a state DMV, or almost 90% of the sites I go to. How do I stop this other than to start using Chrome all the time, which I do not have this issue?

WHENEVER i NEED TO CLOSE MY BROWSER FIREFOX ERASES ALL MY TABS. I MUST USE CCLEANER THAT USES THE QUESTION - THIS IS TAKING TOO LONG, DO YOU WANT TO FORCE CLOSE? (BECAUSE CCLEANER NEEDS TO CLOSE FIREFOX TO CLEAN COOKIES) AND THEN THAT WAY IS THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE ALL MY TABS BACK. BUT THERE ARE TIMES THAT TABS GET CLOSE SUDDENLY AND I LOOSE ALL MY TABS.

THIS MEANS THAT THE WAY FIREFOX CLOSES THE TABS IS FAR FROM GOOD, AND THEY CAUSE TO CLOSE ALL TABS, OR THEY JUST HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO IT RIGHT.

DO YOU KNOW ANY WAY TO CONTACT MOZILLA OR FIREFOX TO REPORT THE PROBLEM? IT IS A SHAME THAT A BROWSER DOES NOT OFFER FREE TECH SUPPORT- AND I CANNOT EVEN TELL THEM!!

I have used firefox before in other computers but it only happens to my mine rig. I could be looking for a video or just browsing and then flickers. It does not happen when I use edge or chrome. And bothers me because i would not use the chrome if this issue was here.

There is a problem printing from OpenStreetMap when using Firefox - basically, you can't! I gather this has been a problem before. An archived post on the same subject (2021) informs that the problem is fixed in Version 91.xx. Well. I'm afraid it's back again in Version 117 (and perhaps earlier).

Hi, I'm a Google Chrome user and I use this browser most of the times. Recently I thought to give a try to Mozilla Firefox. While I was working, I had to browse different websites. I noticed some websites just kept loading and their content was not showing and some websites loaded completely but their images were not appearing.

So I thought to test any website on different browsers and I selected this website for the test: https://alhaqglass.com/

I opened this website on Google Chrome Browser and it's working fine there. I opened this site on Mobile device and it was working fine and when I opened this site on Mozilla Firefox, the website kept loading for some minutes. When website loaded completely after some minutes, its images were not appearing. I'm unable to see images in some websites.

I faced this issue in some other websites too.

If anyone of you have faced this type of issue, can you tell me what's the issue with Mozilla Firefox and how can I fix it?
