About using these firefox support pages and this search feature specifically.


the more words I add the more results are returned there seems to be no intellegence in selecting the appropriate answer, it all appears keyword driven.

This is not beneficial in reaching the correct answer. At times I will go to 'Ask your question' because of this and I can guess many of us do. No one wants to read un-related articles!

I would expect to see the results lessen by adding more keywords to a refinement which I can then see in real time.

At times I would like to search for an add-on that I can not "Phrase" the description of as such:

'I am looking for an addon that will download every page I visit for a predetermined time automatically and make those downloaded pages accessible to the open tabs from which those downloads came from so that I can have the cache on hard drive"

I don't know how to call this thing by a search term and need help with this one question really.

I would have other question also such as how to build an add-on.

Is there a forum specifically related to these add-ons only This forum should be specific to the types of add-on we see in Firefox and Google Chrome for developers and enthisiasts.

I see no link to such a forum in the addons page though there is the link to Manage add-ons; or, is this the best place for such questions?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

Hi,

I have been working with the Style Editor from the Developer Tools. As you can see from the screenshot, there's a massive list of style sheets.

I'm looking for a certain style sheet to edit, however the list is not sorted alphabetically. So I don't know how to find the name of my style sheet other than just trying to scroll through the whole list to spot my specific sheet. This every time take hours for me to find what I'm looking for.

Is there any way to find a style sheet in that list faster than manually scrolling through the list? Something like Ctrl + F, or a way to sort that list alphabetically?

Thanks for your help!

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

There was a previous thread covering this topic, but the solution suggested hadn't really worked - clearing cache and cookies did not solve the problem. For anyone struggling with the same problem, I wanted to leave the working solution where they could find it.

Disable adblock on poczta.o2.pl.

I use Adblock Ultimate. When it was on, the log-in page showed up fine, but as soon as I pressed "log-in", all I could see was a solid block of background colour. Disabling adblock just on that one page solved the issue immediately.

Thank you all for your time! :)

Był poprzednio stworzony wątek na ten temat, ale rozwiązanie które tam było zaproponowane nie działało - wyczyszczenine "ciasteczek" i cache nic nie zrobiło. W razie gdyby ktoś inny jeszcze miał ten sam problem, postanowiłam zostawić rozwiązanie gdzieś, gdzieby mogli je znaleźć.

Wyłącz adblocka na poczta.o2.pl.

Ja osobiście używam adblock ultimate. Kiedy go miałam włączonego, mogłam się zalogować bez problemu, ale jak tylko kliknęłam "zaloguj", nie widziałam nic więcej niż tylko kolor tła. Wyłączenie adblocka tylko na tamtej jednej stronie zdziałało cuda.

Dzięki za wasz czas! :)

I can watch Fubo, Netflix, Disney etc on FireFox - HOWEVER I have deleted history, cache, installed the latest Firefox beta app and I cannot progress past the home screen of Hulu. I can watch Hulu on Microsoft Edge but would much prefer to use FireFox. I even updated to the latest NVidia Driver with no success.

I have changed bout every setting that might possibly restrict Hulu under options/preferences. Sure have not found the elixir.

Do I sit tight waiting for Mozilla to get it handled or look up a Shaman?

Several times now I post a question and I get this long running horizontal scroll.

I have firgured this out the time prior - a while ago - but now I must deal with it again and I do not wish to test this at this time or ever again.

Does anyone know why this is happening. The message should look like a standard text page. I am editing the text in notepad and paste into the message board. I use one long run-on sentence for each paragraph. So, I do not know why some of these lines should become encapsulated in code while others do not.

Why is this even an issue to occur and why is there not a description on this page on how to use this editor?

Hi,

I love the Collections feature of Firefox for Android and it makes so much more sense then bookmarks. Why I can't sync it to Firefox for Desktop (Mac in my case)? Or why I can't use collections on Firefox for Desktop? Would be another feature which Chrome and Co. doesn't have but makes the life much more easier.

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.
