Tesco use Auto Refresh when you are in a Q for booking a slot for deliveries/click and collect, my page does not auto refresh, I get a message informing me that Firefox has prevented the page from reloading. I can't find a tab in settings/options which will allow the page to reload/refresh. I am running Windows 7. Any ideas?

Windows 10 Firefox 75.0 | Spellcheck not working despite enabling in settings + language pack installed

Good Evening,

Many thanks in advance to anybody who may be of assistance in providing steps towards a resolution.

Essentially with Firefox 75.0 on Windows 10 64 bit, Firefox seems to have a completely dysfunctional spell checker.

This is despite the spell check option for “check my spelling” being enabled in settings and a dictionary being installed.

The advanced options also on “spellcheckDefault pref” has selected Boolean as opposed to Number or String, for whatever difference this would make.

Additionally in other browsers on the same system, screenshot provided Chromium Edge Beta, spellchecker does work as expected.

Is this a Windows 10 wide issue, since on my work P.C [also Windows 10 64 bit] – this version running Firefox E.S.R - I experience the same issues with spell check despite, like on my home machine, having spell check enabled in settings and a dictionary installed.

Many thanks for any assistance which may be given.

EDIT: 28/04/2020, 17:30 GMT: Title changed to reflect what actually was installed | Original Question: "Windows 10 Firefox 75.0 | Spellcheck not working despite enabling in settings + Dictionary installed" - Dictionary not actually installed at time of asking.


____________________________________________________________________ Screenshots included [all on home machine]:

  • Firefox version
  • Lack of Firefox spell check functionality in practice [Bing Search Translate Box]
  • Chromium Edge Beta spell check functionality present [Bing Search Translate Box]
  • Advanced Settings – relating to spellcheck preferences
  • Settings for enabling spell check
  • Dictionary settings

Is there an option in about:config that makes the url bar not show my top sites? I know that disabling top sites or changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites to false will make the url bar act like in the past, but i don't want to disable my top sites. When i open a new tab, i want the page to show my custom top sites and the url bar show suggestions based on my history.

How to restore address bar behavior and line height in 75.0?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

I'm using firefox on Windows 10. I want to use different accounts for a website at the same time, so I created two profiles. But when I use these profiles at the same time, these icons are gruoped into one taskbar icon. I only can add one shortcut(for one profile) on my taskbar and start menu.

Is there any way to separate these icon by profiles? and add multiple profiles shortcuts on taskbar?

If Firefox is all about privacy, how come Firefox uses Google as default search engine? It's like trying to avoid being spied and hiring the NSA to help you.

I don't understand why Firefox hasn't chosen Duckduckgo or other instead. Makes it appear fishy to me... Unless you get money from Google...

When I go full screen by dragging the browser window to the top of the monitor (Windows 10): My tabs row, toolbar and bookmarks disappear. There is a big blank white space where they should be. Screen shot attached. So can't use the instructions to exit full screen mode by clicking the menu button, because it's not there. The only thing I've found to work is to refresh firefox.

I cannot export or backup bookmarks. When I try to, no file is created. I have refreshed Firefox, created a new profile and copied the sqlite file, and uninstalled/reinstalled. None of these actions solved the issue. Could there be a corrupt bookmark that is preventing these functions? Is there another way to export/backup?

Hi,

See attached for details. One feature I'm trying to setup with FF is search engine query URL shortcuts. Basically, it allows the user to type a letter and it auto enables that URL. In this case, we're using Reddit. Basically, it allow us to type 'R' followed by a space which then auto populates the query URL. We can then type in our requested subreddits. However, I haven't been able to get this to work with FF. The search engine function add-on in firefox only enables a general search instead of subreddit specific. Would love to hear any feedback and/or solutions. Thanks in advance.
