Hi,

There are two suggestions (or questions if I simply cannot find these): - as the default behaviour of the browser, I want to be able to only see websites from Europe. Somewhere on the net I found that the following address does it: https://www.google.com/webhp?cr=countryAT|countryBE|countryBG|countryHR|countryCY|countryCZ|countryDK|countryEE|countryFI|countryFR|countryDE|countryGR|countryHU|countryIE|countryIT|countryLV|countryLT|countryLU|countryMT|countryNL|countryPL|countryPT|countryRO|countrySK|countrySI|countryES|countrySE

However, when I am trying to use it in firefox as my Start Page, it opens all of these in separate tabs and it does not work. Also as far as I understand using the link is not possible for new tabs.

The reason is simple. For example, when looking for cooking recipes, pages from the USA use strange units that cannot be understood and there is no point in translating each of these manually as all recipes are available in million of versions - it is just a matter of clicks. But I don't want to waste time each time on checking the websites one by one; if the cooking website is from Europe, the units will be of a standard and I don't have to worry. It is the same in relation to many products of any kind. European and American markets are completely different and reading description of something only to find out at the end that it is only available in the USA is waste of time.

- it should be possible in firefox to block some websites or portals by some button. I know that there is an add-on for this but it is only for 10 pages or so, so in reality it is not very useful. It also only works in the way that the page won't open when clicked on. However, it would be much better if unwanted portals or websites were simply removed from search results.

There are too many fake websites nowadays providing incorrect or misleading information. If it happens that I come across one of these, I want to be doing that only once - and block them forever.

Hello everyone,

I need to recover a web page that I visited several times last fall using Firefox on Mac OS. I have regular backups which should include the Firefox cache files, but after looking through several threads online it is not clear exactly which file I would look for in my backups, and how I could go about actually looking at the cached version of that page. I have seen some tools for viewing old cache files, but the only one that seemed reasonably easy to use is only for Windows.

I would be grateful for any step-by-step instructions on how I can see an old page (or at least any parts of it that were cached) that no longer exists.

Also: I tried the various internet archives such as way back machine and google cache but no such luck. This was an ad on a real estate website in Italy.

Thank you in advance.

Hi guys, lately with one of the updates to firefox I've had something new crop up and I desperately want to get rid of it. When I save something from the internet to my computer there is a dropdown box that shows up from the downloads icon, which is on my address bar. (I'm assuming this is firefox and not windows.) It just annoys me and sometimes gets in the way. Help please?

I frequently have difficulty when I need to make plain-test copies of web pages. These are pages that only allow "Select All" to select parts of pages, so that important parts of the pages cannot be selected, or so that a large number of select-and-copy cycles are required to copy the information on a webpage. The Firefox extensions that I have tried like the old "right to click" do not seem to help much. With old versions of Windows, I would use print-to-file for a generic plain-text printer, but that does not provide a readable file on Win 10.

I frequently find these problems on web pages with survey questions. This web page is a very simple example where multiple cycles of select-and-copy are required: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form People who have accounts on Meetup.com should see an egregious example on this page: https://www.meetup.com/account/interests/

Thanks for any help, Lloyd

Finally figured it out; and since earlier posts raised the issue but didn't have this solution, I decided to post what worked for me.

1. Download an example of the file type you're having issues with 2. CTL-J or click the down-pointing arrow icon ("display the progress of ongoing downloads") at top right of menu bar 3. Right-click the file name of the item you just downloaded; then choose "Always open similar files"

Adding the file type to Settings > Applications was not an option. Windows Media Pack was a red herring. Autoplay is a different thing.

Hope this helps someone, or maybe ME the next time I forget.

I realize this may not be a browser issue. But, I'm pulling my hair out trying to find a solution to my problem and I'm hoping someone at Firefox may have a solution or suggestion. My problem is, how in the world do I get help or support with my Yahoo email account. Yes, the site has help and support links, but you have to pay to use the. Frankly, rather bazaar you have to pay for support when you're the client. So, does anyone at Firefox have a solution or suggestion to access help/support to Yahoo emails accounts or Yahoo without paying for the support? Thank you.
