I currently have this add-on installed. It allows you to you highlight certain text, then right click and open up a link to Wiktionary in another tab. Up until a few minutes ago, this menu item was at the very top of the list (i.e. above "undo" and all the rest), but now it's been moved down with all the other add-ons. Image for further clarity.

The add-on hasn't been updated in 6 years, so it's certainly not that. I don't recall doing anything to make it change, but before this, it had been at the top of the menu ever since I added it maybe 2 years ago. Is there any potential way to restore this functionality? The fact that it appeared at the very top of the menu might have been a bug, but if that's the case, it was certainly a convenient one.

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to hearing from you fine folks in this community.

I used to get a display in the middle of a "New Page" with Firefox - recent revisions have removed that and I only get a Google search bar at top of new page. Help is appreciated. What I am looking for is displayed in images from my Chrome browser - similar, but not like the way Firefox displayed it.

My Firefox browser accessed the internet until a day ago. Now its unable to load pages. Computer’s network connection is good. I did a firewall check. I even excluded the browser from firewall checks to no avail. The only alternative remaining is resetting the browser. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Lightroom runs okay alongside other browsers. Firefox runs well at the same time as other editing software including DxO PhotoLab 6 and ON1 Photo Raw

Using Firefox V109.0 Windows 10 Duckduckgo Search Engine I use the up and down buttons to scroll. When searching on Duckduckgo I can scroll normally up and down the results page until clicking on a link in the search results. After visiting a website and then hitting the back button to go back to the search page I am returned to the same place in the search results. If I hit the up button I can scroll up the results page normally. If I hit the down button however, the search page jumps back to the top of the page of search results and I then have to scroll back down and find the place where I was in the search results. This happens every time and I have found no solution to this annoying problem. I would appreciate any solutions for this problem that anyone might have.

Similarly, I cannot use the up and down buttons for scrolling the page when in the Firefox Settings. Using the up and down buttons when in Settings will only scroll up and down between the Settings Categories, such as General, Home, Search, Privacy and Security, etc. I have tried clicking on the page and on the page bar on the right but I am forced to use the trac pad to scroll when in settings. Note: I use the up and down buttons for scrolling because my HP laptop has a terrible trac pad which makes it's use very difficult for scrolling. Once again, I would appreciate any help that anyone might have with these issues. Thanks

I can not remove the extension!

I have noticed for some time now that I have an extension in my Firefox extensions that has no name and keeps installing itself, even when I try to uninstall it through the Firefox folder. The extension causes that in my search suggestions when I enter something always other websites come to the surface, or the actually suggested by firefox sites slide down. Some yahoo and amazon sites come up on my search results.

The default browser behavior when I click on a link on a page is to open a pop up window in the current tab. In these cases I'm clicking a link on the pg to my social media account in order to publish a new post linking to my own content.

The new unwanted behavior on clicking the link is for it to open my social media account in a new tab. I want clicking that link to open a pop up of my social media account in the current tab. Is there any about:config setting controlling this, which I can change?

I signed in to my account on my desktop today just as I have for years. I was asked to verify it was me. You sent me a code. I could not figure out where I was supposed to enter that code. I saw no instructions where to type it in and I could not see any space to enter the code into. Now I am locked out. I have been on firefox for years. I am 76 years old now, a recent stroke victim, and this is very confusing to me. Can you make this simpler? Please explain where I need to type in the code you send and let me try again. Please reply. This is stressing me up. It all started today when I tried to add this account to a new iphone my kids got for me. I have only used android phones on my firefox account. I won't try to add firefox to the iphone again. iphones seem to be complicated enough as it is. I can use it on Microsoft I hope. but I still need firefox to continue working on my android desktop. Firefox has all my passwords for other apps stored on it. As well as the saved favorite websites I have placed on there over the years. Many, Many of them. I am used to having the firefox saved password function to quickly log me in to those applications . Please help me get it back up and running. please email me the solution to [email removed from public] William C

We have our downloads set to a network location, and ask to save in location. We have needed to apply the fix I found in a forum by going to about:config, browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel and change value from true to false.

However, when even going to a PDF on the internet, it is automatically saving to the network location. Can this be changed?

Thank you! Nicole

It looks like you're using a new device, or you changed its settings. Before you sign in, we need to confirm it's you.

This happens on many sites. How do I stop it?

I am trying to do a print of a PDF. I can see the whole image on the screen. But, when I print it, all I get are lines. I then copied the link page for the PDF and used it in OPERA Browser. NO PROBLEMS. It did print fully the way it looks on the screen.

No wonder I am again going to delete FIREFOX and go with a different browser. Firefox is having too many problems and I already have enough headaches without Firefox help.
