Getting Firefox to stop opening emails when I click on a hyperlink outside of the browser? If I have an email hyperlink in a spreadsheet and I click on it, Firefox tries to open it and I want it to go back to using my Outlook Program like it was prior to installing Firefox.

Thank you

How to launch firefox automatically in LOW PRIORITY? Before, it was not complicated with a single optimized process. But for a year now, Firefox has been configured in relation to Gaming PCs with 8-16GB of RAM, 4K video and Games which uses PNG of 4MB in animation. It is almost a luxury to be able to use several software at the same time (photoshop, windows, firefox ...). And I'm not talking about all the crap associated with protecting flouted data.

NOTA: Your single process option does not work: it already generates 6 which are not optimized. When you delete the biggest one, all the others close. So I don't see the point of this configuration.

Hi, I’m looking for a solution to the problem in the browser Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit), OS Windows 7 SP1 x64: I installed the SaveFrom addon to download the video, this application registered its home page and blocked the ability to change settings when the browser starts. An inscription appeared in the browser settings: “Your organization controls this browser” - but the computer is home! SaveFrom seized control of the browser! Please help me delete it with all its home pages, settings locks and more! (I apologize - I use Google translator)

I was trying to stop websites from reloading pages automatically so i setted: accessibility.blockautorefresh = true and browser.meta_refresh_when_inactive.disabled =true. Now many websites when loading , shows at the top of the page a notice: " Firefox prevented this page from automaticaly reloading ". In the older Firefox versions , it was an addon called: " Refresh blocker " which was automatically closing this notice after 5 to 60 seconds (depending on users preference). This addon does not exist now so , i wonder if there is a way to apply this setting using an other method , (maybe about:config modification , or other).

I'm having a hard time getting the settings right for what used to be default link behavior. I want links in web pages to open in the same tab, unless the page wants something else. I want external links, i.e., from Thunderbird, to open new tabs if Firefox is already open. Can anyone tell me how to fine tune the settings to get this behavior?

I find Pocket quite creepy. Despite your attempts to reassure users about the privacy of the system, the relevance of the suggested articles with respect to my recent searches does make me feel like I'm being followed. That's not the experience I expect from a browser like Firefox.

So I unticked the "Recommended by Pocket" in the Preferences. But it's not clear to me what that does exactly. Q1. Does it just hide the suggestions or does it disabled the Pocket system entirely? Would it be possible to make the purpose of that tickbox clearer for the users?

Q2. If it does disable it, why can I still see "extensions.pocket.enabled true" under about:config? Why can't that be turned to false from the Preferences?

Q3. That config key indicates that it is a browser extension. If indeed it is, why isn't it listed under "about:addons"? Why can't Pocket be disabled or removed like any other extension?

I want to make my secondary email address for my firefox account my primary email address. I searched for help, and found that I am supposed to just select my secondary email address and click on "make primary". But when I sign in to "manage account", my only option for secondary email address is to "add". I already have done that, and it definitely won't let me do it again, but also it doesn't show up so there is no way to change it. Please help. I'm new to Firefox and generally like it, but this is very frustrating as I keep getting caught in a circle.

When reopening Firefox, all tabs from the previous session are opened again. Say, I used wikipedia and closed that tab, it wil reappear when restarting firefox. Since I am frequently opening and closing new tabs, this leads to a great deal of tabs (of which only a few are wanted) at every startup. How can this be prevented?

Hi,

Since 1-2 months my Firefox address bar grows vertically to about 1.5 its normal size when I click it. I think this came with an update. How can I disable this? It's really annoying and unnecessary.

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) on Mac OS 10.15.5. One of the main websites I use is based on Eclipse Theia which is essentially VS Code in the browser. It works fine except that the main shortcut for Theia is Cmd-Shift-P and everytime I press it it opens a new private window. I need to change open new private window in Firefox to something else (Cmd-Shift-N ideally) to match Chrome so I can use Cmd-Shift-P as expected in Theia. I've tried searching the forum and the web but can't find the solution.

I'm used to Chrome's ability to automatically open a history item I click on in a new tab. Firefox instead opens that history item in the tab I'm currently in, which is really inconvenient. I don't want to have to remember to open a new tab BEFORE I look in history for a specific item. I can't find any way to do this in Firefox - it may be there, but not to my eyes.
