Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

In my home network there are several servers whose URLs end with ".lan". For example http://nas.lan or http://router.lan. When I want to connect to these machines with Firefox, I usually type router.lan in the address bar. But then Firefox starts searching for router.lan on google. Afterwards I am asked if I had wanted to access http://router.lan instead and when I click "Yes" Firefox takes me where I actually wanted to go. However, this can get quite annoying over time, and I wonder if it is possible to tell Firefox to go directly to the URL I enter whenever it is a string ending with ".lan" and avoid to search for it? Don't get me wrong, I do not want to disable the search bar completely as I am very used to type in searches into the address bar directly.

I can't figure out how to get a word count of a web page. The problem: an academic website offers a tremendously long work in five parts--so lengthy I can't copy&paste into Word without getting error messages. The only extension FF has for getting a word (or character) count is Count Me Up, but you have to paste text into a little box. Shouldn't word count be a FF tool? BTW Chrome too doesn't seem to know about any word count extensions.

Now, in the old Firefox, you used to be able to select "Email Link" to send a URL to someone by e-mail in your favorite e-mail client. I used to do that routinely, sending links via Thunderbird. I'm now using FF93.0, and all I see is "Share", which, when you point it to "Mail" it dumps you in Chrome. Now, in my FF prefs, I have specified Content Type->mailto->Use Thunderbird, so why it's dumping me in Chrome makes no sense.

How do I use Firefox to share a URL in Thunderbird like I used to be able to do?

Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

I just upgraded to the new release. There used to be a button with three dots toward the right side of the search/address bar. I used it to email a link to the current page. Two clicks and I'm editing the email. I don't see the button in this new release. How do I email a link to the current page? Ideally in one or two clicks.
