Currently, if I want a tab to be a "pinned tab", I have to right-click the tab and then choose "Pinned Tab". But I'd like to automate that. I want Firefox to know that everytime I go to, for example, gmail.com, keep.google.com, fb.com, messenger.com, drive.google.com, contacts.google.com, I want them as pinned tabs.

How can I get Firefox to automatically pin the tabs for certain domains?

Re 66.0.2 Tabs are on bottom but project ~1/3 down from background, into usable screen, blocking tab titles.

Managed to get Tabs on Bottom in all previous updates (including FF65). Carried over ToB with FF66.0.2 update, but the whole line of tabs (including vertical separators) has shifted down about 1/3 of its height such that it bleeds into the immediate viewable screen. If the top of that viewable screen is black, for example, the tab titles are almost unreadable. Any advice? Appreciated.

The video shows a bug https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2dZHzGRQs When running through the profile Manager there is no bug. With a clean profile, have a bug. When disabled add-ons have a bug. More, constantly exits from accounts on Yandex, Google, VK, need to re-login. Bugs started after some updates about a month ago. I'm just wondering what you had to do with a working version to get this. Send this information to the developers to fix it. After all himself I this do not can, contacts the there is no, and if and there is forms, then of course all on them spat and no one looks that there send.

I am using Firefox Quantum and when I type something in the address bar Yahoo searches pop up. There are obviously many other people with the same problem as I have seen this same issue brought up multiple times when I have researched this problem. I have looked at the answers provided in the various forums etc. and none have provided an answer that works for me. I have done the "about:config", "about:preferences#search", gone in and deleted or inactivated all add ons, etc. and either the expected response such as looking for the "keyword.url" is not there or does not work. If this can't be fixed I am going to stop using Firefox all together as this Yahoo search thing is SO annoying. I would think that with this being a common problem the help sites for Mozilla/Firefox would have the answer readily available. Furthermore, just my two cents worth, but I think it stinks that either Yahoo or some other associated program hijacks the address bar and changes the search from Google, which is what I had set up, to Yahoo without a warning or even without asking if I would like this. The results that Yahoo search produces are very inadequate.

Whenever I open a youtube video, the player will be paused. All I have to do is click it to start, but that's mildly inconvenient enough to bother me. This issue is present when all of my plugins/extensions/addons are disabled as well. It does not occur if I use Chrome.

When using Firefox 66.0.2 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.4, when i click links from applications, it opens it 2nd tab

When I open Firefox normally y the application, it just opens one tab (in this case depending on the option set)

But when i click on links in applications (Thunderbird, Apple mail etc). the browser opens: The firx tab is blank, while the second ta displays the page from the clicked link.

Disabling "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" under Preference "help" but doesn't solve the issue as it opens in a new window rather than a 2nd tab. Is there an about:config option i could set?

Although the passwords are saved in "Saved Login", I need to refresh Firefox every day to enable that. The other settings like language has been saves without any problems.

So I tried those ways from the link, but none of them worked. "How to fix preferences that won't save" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save The only way to fix this situation at the moment is to refresh it every day. That means I have to redo other settings every day.

Is there any way to fix it?

At various points in my usage of Firefox, if my default home page isn't ChillTab, and even sometimes when it is, Firefox will randomly quit and restart with ChillTab as the default. Virtually every single time it has happened I was in the middle of watching a video. What's worse is that Firefox will demand updates so as to change the homepage to Yahoo.

I am generating links in PHP from the database. A generated link is:

"<a target="_blank" href="events/pdf/oinlineRenwal.6.pdf">Online Renewal</a>"

When I click on the link, it opens the file explorer. It opens a new tab when using Chrome.

The website is https://rscds-sf.org, 'Beginner's Ball Flyer' and 'Truckee Workshop' link.

I have reset the user agent, restarted in safe mode and cleared cache and cookies.

I upgraded to the the Firefox version 66.0.2 64 bit on windows 10. Now the top sites line has only blank icons, and will not show recent sites visited. As a test, I added a site manually, expecting it would show up.

After that, I went into about:config and searched for "newtabpage" and found the line with the information for the sites I just added, and I saw them, displayed below. So it knew I had manually pinned some top sites, but they still do not show.

browser.newtabpage.pinned;[{"url":"https://www.alternet.org/","label":"Alternet"},null,null,{"url":"https://www.huffingtonpost.com","label":"Huffington"}]

Sending laptop in for warranty, question about backing up Firefox

Hello,

I have an Acer laptop that I'm about to send in for a warranty repair for several different issues. I was told by Acer that it will likely be reset/reformatted upon arrival. Also, I was informed that the laptop may be replaced with a completely different unit at their discretion.

I would like to obviously keep all of my Firefox info, history, bookmarks, etc. and be able to restore them to the computer when it is returned to me, be it the same laptop or a new one.

Can someone please instruct me on the proper way to do this?

Is it as simple as copying my Profile folder to another drive, and then reinstalling it after I reinstall Firefox back on the laptop (be it my original one or a new one) when it has been returned to me?

Do I need to use the Profile Manager?

I bought a used Lenovo to use while my Acer is in for repairs. Today, I think that I successfully synced the two of them. (I have a Windows phone and thus no Firefox app for my phone, and could not enter a phone number to "complete" the sync as instructed) but it seems to have worked.

Will the bookmarks, history, tabs, etc from my Acer disappear from showing up on the Lenovo when the Acer laptop is reset by the factory?

(Or should I even delete Firefox from that Acer that I am sending in just out of privacy/security concerns?)

Thank to any and all who can assist me with doing this correctly. I apologize for any ignorance on my part, I've just never had to send in a unit for repair before.

Thanks, Chris
