Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Good day,

since yesterday the Evenote Web Clipper stopped working. When reinstalling the web clipper I get the regular screen:

"Welcome to Evernote Web Clipper!" where you have to confirm to enable web clipper. When clicking on "Allow" nothing happens. At the same time occasionally I got the message the Firefox was not directed to Evernote in teh right way.

What have I tried thus far - without positive outcome: - disabling and then enabling the web clipper in Firefox preferences - deleting and re-installing the web clipper - deleting Firefox, re-install Firefox and then re-install the web clipper

The web clipper is functioning fine under Safari.

May it be that the change of privacy policy by Evernote (dus May 15) has something to do with it ?

Thank you for your suggestions !


Best regards, René.

I have had AddBlockPlus installed for years blocking ALL adds ! I have lately seen adds before I can see videos in YouTube ! I use FireFox in latest update - automatic updates itself.

I have tried to UN-install and then RE_install AdblockPlus with no luck - I stille on some videos have adds - one or even two - before I can see the video !

If I wait for a while to start the video sometimes the adds disappears and I can see the video.

I beleave it has to do with updating Windows to 20H2 - because I think I have got the problem after that update.

What can I do to get these adds til Hell ?

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

Paste (CTRL+V) in Firefox on macos does not work but CTRL+C does

Hi!

I am on macOS Catalina and am trying to change the copy-paste combination on my keyboard from Command+C and Command+V to Control+C and Control+V, respectively.

Under Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts, I already have a copy-paste setting for 'All Applications', and it works on ALL applications I tested with (Google Chrome, Safari, Telegram, terminal emulators, etc.), EXCEPT on Firefox.

So then I tried to add a custom setting for Firefox.app. Copy works: I can CTRL+C in a firefox page and CTRL+V on another app. BUT CTRL+V does not work in Firefox itself -- the previous shortcut Command+V is what still works.

What should I do so that:

  1. Numbered list itemFirefox will use the app shortcuts for 'All Applications' instead of having its own configuration (less important)
  2. Bulleted list itemCTRL+V would work on Firefox? (more important)

My Firefox version is 85.0.2

Thanks in advance.

++

Edit, additional info:

I followed the list of valid command names at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly?redirectslug=Keyboard+shortcuts&redirectlocale=en-US#w_bookmarks. Adding some of them to 'App Shortcut' works (such as New Tab, Close Tab, and Bookmark This Page), and some of them don't (such as Find in This Page and Find in This Page).

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.

How to have 3 separate tabs at startup but just one tab when I click HOME icon in Firefox browser bar?

Here's all I want. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I start Mozilla Firefox I want it to open with three tabs... ❶ https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/reference/unicode.htmlhttps://messages.google.com/web/conversations

From then on, when I click on the home button, I only want the tab/page I'm viewing to switch to this page... https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/favorites/index.html

Is Firefox capable of doing this? (Chrome is, but got WAY too slow recently...to a point I couldn't take it anymore.) Right now if I use those three pages for startup, the home button opens a new session in all three pages, which makes no sense to me. I need to be able to specify different & separate pages for "startup" and "home." I'm old so I'm probably just looking at the interface wrong.

Thanks!

Hello..............when I open a new Firefox browser tab, I see the heading Top Sites and a selection of eight links, most of them to the websites that I use frequently.

Needing 12 rather than eight, I found the facility to select a second row. But the second row also has eight links and some of them are not wanted.

Please tell me how I can select 12 links and stop at that number. If I right click the three dots in the top right corner of one of the unwanted links and then select Dismiss, another unwanted link replaces it.

I know this is a simple problem but it has defeated me. Please help.

And thank you..................Richard

Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat? Some of us have never made it to the high speed information superhighway and are still stuck on the data dirt road. Thanks

The latest outrage ? Firefox is taking up space at the top of my browser with the following : "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..."

I have no #$#$#$@ bookmarks !!! Spent over 30 minutes trying to find out how to turn off this crap. Apparently it can't be done. I'm stuck with the irritating garbage, unless I dump Firefox. Solution found ! Screw Mozilla and Firefox. They've become no better than IE or Chrome. Both of which abuse their users by forcing them to waste time undoing forced "improvements".

Dear Firefox support.

Hi, I'd like to change a default shortcut. I'd like to use Ctrl + Shift + N to open a private browser window. The default shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + P, but in every other browser it is Ctrl + Shift + N, so I'd like that also in Firefox that shortcut would be Ctrl + Shift + N. Is there a way to change it?

Thanks for the support.
