When I am in about:preferences#general, the Find in Settings box has it's active field set up right when access to this page is provided, when I off-click to the side of that box, it does nothing about the control field which is active, highlighting stuff can make that blinking stop and hold in a static state but only clicking other control areas can I get that active field to stop blinking in the Settings box, that forced active field is a pet peeve for me on account of it starting active when the page goes up but also because it has an invisible hitbox outside the visible one, and cannot be offclicked in a casual way, I want that not to be active when that page opens and I want the hitbox reduced to the visible one and I want an offclick in the rest of the white field to deactivate the active field in the Settings box.

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.

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.

How do you bring up the Context menu in FireFox? (I'm using an Apple MacBook Pro)

I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to bring up the Context menu. With previous versions of FireFox. I could hold down the Control key and click a tab and that would bring up the Context menu. But with the latest versions of FireFox, that option is no longer available.

I suppose if I bought a two-button mouse, I could bring up the Context menu with the right button, but you should be able to bring up the Context menu with the trackpad that come with Apple's MacBook Pro.

So how do you bring up the Context menu on an Apple MacBook Pro?

Thank you so much.

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

Hey guys! I'm a student and so it's useful for me to make my university's student portal as my homepage. However, whenever I start up Firefox, it goes to the 'Authentication required - Mozilla Firefox' popup login area before I can get into my portal. The details are already auto-filled, but I have to hit OK every time. It's more of a quality-of-life and very minor problem, but would there be a way for me to just click the Firefox icon and instantly be logged in automatically? Maybe a custom URL to set as the homepage, or some other way I have to go to make this happen. Thanks so much all! Any replies would be massively appreciated!

Hello,

I have 7 or 8 sites I regularly use to purchase books. The problem is,I have to type every single one of them and then head to their search bars and type the same book title over and over again. Is there a way I can place all of them in a group and then have Firefox search only within those sites for the book titles?

Thank you in advance!

Recently the web push notifications got a popup UI that is really disturbing. Show up on all desktops etc., it interrupts me in what I’m doing. I really very strongly dislike this change.

I would like to revert to how it was before (pre-76.0 ? Not sure exactly which version): - notifications get sent to my desktop/OS’s notification center (running OpenSuse + KDE), - no popup is displayed when a notification is triggered.

That way: - notifications will respect the OS « do not disturb » mode, - notifications get shown through a unified UI for all applications, - I can pick how « interrupting » I want each notification to be, - In particular I can focus while on my computer without being interrupted, and poll the notifications occasionally.

Is there a way (maybe a about:config option) to keep notifications but disable the popup behaviour?
