Hi,

I had applied the settings to disable the new urlbar features, but as of version 77 these no longer work.

I absolutely hate this change; it does nothing useful, it interferes with viewing the page, and it very much feels to me like change for the sake of change.

If someone can pass this on to whoever makes these unilateral decisions :

Don't make changes to the user interface that are not optional. How do they not understand that changing the UI for hundreds of millions of people is not a good idea?

So my question is, how do I disable the new urlbar "features" and return to a plain static one?

I want to copy any of the text displayed on a page.

When the text is selectable, I can use any method to copy the text to the clipboard. From there I can paste it to another document.

When the text is not selectable, I use this procedure:

  1. Position the mouse pointer over the (unselectable) text.
  2. Open the page context menu and select 'Inspect Element'.
  3. (Now on the inspector tab).
  4. While necessary (rarely), expand the HTML using the '...' placeholders.
  5. Highlight the element containing the text of interest.
  6. Open the inspector context menu, and select 'Copy' -> 'Inner HTML'.

In most cases, it is not necessary to use the '...' placeholder, as using it will just display the interesting text. When it is necessary to drill down into the first element's children, the page has a distinctly different appearance from the other case.

I would like to speed up this process, so coping unselectable text is as fast as copying selectable text, most of the time.

If the element I point at (and would inspect as described above) has no child elements, I would like to have something like 'Copy Inner HTML' appear in the page contect menu.

  • Is there a way to do this, that I have not discovered yet?
  • Can this be done by modifying the browsers CSS?
  • Does this need an Add-on?
  • Does such an Add-on exist?

TIA Doug

Every now and then I do this. I see a picture and think, that would be fun in my wallpaper folder. I right click the image and click, "Save Image As..." Right below that option is, "Email Image..." Every now and then a little tick of my hand or finger, and I end up selecting the E-mail option. This is automatically set up to connect to Windows Excel. I don't use Windows Excel. I don't even have it installed. I don't want it installed. The computer freezes for a bit and finally gives up and tells me something about the program not being installed or set up properly or whatever. I've forgotten what it said. Anyway, afterwards, the right-click "Save Image As..." and possibly other options don't work until after I reboot the computer. I will NEVER right click an image to e-mail it. I do that from my mail program. How do I remove the option from the right-click menu. I tried looking it up, and found a lot of related stuff but they proved unhelpful.

I need the "Page Down" button to actually "down the page" even when text input is selected. It is crucial to my comfort to have this function on websites. And I was very disappointed when it didn't work out. This is especially nonsensical for one-line text input zones. Please, I don't want to go back to Chrome for this function.

Hi there,

after the recent MS update, I can no longer just open my browser to Firefox. It always asks me if I want it to be the default browser, I choose yes, then select Firefox in the list of browsers. I have followed all the instructions about making it your default browser in Firefox and Win 10 but still asking.

I guess MS really wants Edge in there for everything, so I may have to wave the white flag to them sooner or later.

I have "too many" bookmarks. I can move bookmarks into folders, so that related bookmarks can all be stored together - GREAT! BUT - when I am done moving bookmarks to those folders, what I want to have happen is that when I push the bookmarks button, I want all bookmarks moved to folders to STOP appearing in the bookmarks list unless I specifically ask for the contents of that folder. Even ancient Internet Explorer allowed the user to place Favorites in folders, so that when you asked for Favorites, you didn't see EVERY favorite listed - just the Favorites that were not in folders, and then folder icons which would allow you to see all of the Favorites belonging in that folder.
