I would like to be able to reset links on a webpage to be as if I have never clicked on them, but I am unable to do so. I have tried:

-Resetting all of the cookies, history, etc for that individual website. -Removing the URLs from the links in question from my browser history. -Downloading this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/remove-visited-link/ and using it -Going into settings and changing the visited link color.

Nothing has worked so far. One thing about the website in question is it has its own unique color for visited links---I am wondering if that is causing this? Additionally, this persists whether or not I am signed in to this website.

Thanks.

Well, this is not much support question, but I didn't found better place to ask.

Why is this nice feature disabled by default? It is disabled by default not only in Firefox, but also in other major browsers like Chrome, Edge, or Opera.

If I wanted to activate it (Because it is nice feature), then I must press F7, or click on checkbox in settings.

If you don't know what I'm talking, then it is the "Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages" option.

I put an anchor link in the html source , and when I click on it I want it to open file.txt with gedit. I can get c files to do it , but .txt files open in Firefox.

Yahoo mail push notifications stopped working around 5/25/23. I have Firefox v113.0.1 from the automatic updates. The notifications were coming, now they don't. Firefox still sends notices from other email services, and yahoo notices still work with other browsers.

I had 20 tabs open on one screen. I moved one tab off the the 2nd screen so I could see info between two pages at the same time. When I was done, I closed the browser with the 19 tabs so I was left with one tab browser on the 2nd screen. Unfortunately now I lost all 19 tabs because when I click restore Recently Closed Windows (tabs) the only thing that listed is the tab I already have open.

This has been an issue for a LONG time. I have to remember to close the temporary browser tab 1st then close the main browser with all the other tabs open LAST. I HATE that I lose everything if I don't close the split browser in that order.

I keep getting interference from my browsing from McAfee that says my virus control has expired, which of course it has, because I changed to a different company. How do I keep them from interfering with my browsing with this message? It's irritating to keep getting that from them. I don't care about their virus protection, and I will never use them ever again because of this constant harrassment. I copied the website below so you can see what I'm talking about.

I have Ecosia as the default search engine, but lately it won't let me search as it is stuck on a page saying:

Checking your browser before accessing www.ecosia.org. This process is automatic. Your browser will redirect to your requested content shortly. Please allow up to 5 seconds...

This page does not redirect.

This doesn't happen with Brave.

How can I get Firefox to use Ecosia?

Thanks!

If I recall correctly, there was a Firefox update several weeks ago. Since that time, there have been at least three occasions where a URL I manually enter initially takes me to the intended site, but is interrupted immediately by a message, such as "Checking Browser." This quickly disappears and I notice the browser begins accessing other pages in rapid succession, until I closed the window (in the attached screenshot, the browser history is in reverse chronological order). Never experienced anything like that in my 28 years on the web. What might be going on? Thanks.
