I can see a lot of items in pop-up menu comparable to old Firefox version. I don't need a lot of them. They just embarrassed me. How could I remove them? I can not find an option to add/remove items to pop-up menu.

I can see that some items in this pop-up menu are not visible at different web sites.

I don't need following items: "Open Image in New tab" "copy image link" "email image" "save page to pocket"

How to remove them?

Thanks

Like many users, I find Google's 'before you continue' pop-up annoying. Because I automatically delete cookies on browser exit, it keeps popping up as it doesn't remember my settings. I have installed Google Consent Dialog Remover, and it has been working well... until now.

I just did a search for a place, and tried to click on the map to go to Google Maps. The dialog intruded, despite the add-on. But worse than that, when I clicked 'I agree', nothing happened! I cannot get to the maps page at all. I've tried disabling enhanced protection -- no change. I've tried disabling various add-ons -- no change. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode, but the same problem persists.

I can't figure out how this is happening or what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Hi all,

I've been having this issue for a few days now, I've tried to uninstall, re-scan, reboot my pc and reinstall Firefox but they still PERSIST!! Every time I open firefox for the first time after turning on my pc, Avast pops up with the malware warnings. I've used Avast, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner but nothing seems to be working. I've disabled and uninstalled the ad-ons as well.

I'm not sure how else to remove the malwares because it seems to be running from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

Please help.

Hi... I am using the latest version of Firefox (88.0) for my 64 bit Dell laptop. I have checked a few times over a period of weeks in settings, General section, the box marked as - Always check if Firefox is your default browser is checked. Underneath this line I see one line with a smiley icon indicating it is NOT. I have several times gone through the process to make it my default browser and, when checking that it is, it ALWAYS displays as the default browser. So... I have no idea why this line continues to be displayed. Anyone have any thoughts? I can find no info on this issue.. thanks Brian

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

- Bob

Hi,

Even though I live in Czech Republic, I set up Firefox to use English. After reading some help here I had to reinstall it using different (EN) installer. That's a bit odd but OK, it worked them.

But when Firefox installed an update, it was again in CZ. :/

Thanks for fixing that.

I thought perhaps the cat had hit some keyboard shortcut (goodness it would be nice to be able to disable those!) and removed "Bookmark This Page" from the Bookmarks pull-down menu, but based on the number of people asking the same question, I now suspect that the latest Firefox update somehow removed it. I have seen MANY people asking about this, invariably answered with how to work around it being missing by using a tiny blob of an icon (which tiny meaningless blob among many, my not-so-young eyes are not certain - apparently it looks like a star). WE WANT IT BACK. Please put "Bookmark This Page" back where it belongs - in the pulldown menu called "Bookmarks". Or tell us how to put it there ourselves. Leave it in the teeny blob menu also if you like - maybe there's someone out there who actually likes it there. But please, for the love of usability, put that entry back on the list of things you can do from the Bookmarks pull-down menu! Not all of your users are 20-somethings with perfect eyesight!

I've been having an issue where FF tabs stop letting me detatch or move them. I tried disabling all my extensions to see if that was the issue. Now I'm reading that MAC settings don't get saved if you disable it? What the heck!? No warning, no nothing? For me, this is a must-have feature for FF and it's the reason I recommend it personally and professionally. How is this not saved somewhere or part of my FF profile? I have to now try and remember all my site settings and containers and rebuild all of it. I can't believe this isn't a standard feature in an official extension.

There were significant changes to the right-click menu from Firefox 87 to Firefox 88. See the screen shots below for the FF 87 vs 88 menus.

Is there a way to restore or customize the right-click menu options? I want to change "Copy Link" back to "Copy Link Location" and for the "a" in "Location" to be underlined. For many years, possibly decades, I have been using right click and then tapping the "A" key to load the URL part of a link into the copy/paste buffer. With FF 88 this is now the "L" key which is painful as my right hand is on the mouse and my left hand is on the left side of the keyboard. Hitting "A" is a no-look-no-brainer for me. For "L" it looks like I need to remove my left hand from the mouse, look at the keyboard, and then tap it.

Related to this is that FF 88 removes "View Image Information" from right clicking on images. I also have used this regularly.

Firefox Developer Edition downloaded 89.0b1 tonight. When you choose Submit Feedback in the help/about form it goes nowhere. Actually to a "coming soon" page for ideas.mozilla.com.
