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!

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.

I was on a webpage and with multiple images on it. I went back to the same webpage with a different computer and one of the images is not there anymore.

The original computer, which is not connected to the network at this time still has the image I am looking for on the page.

When I go to download the image it does not save it.

It looks like it is waiting to download the image from the site where the image does not exist.

When I go to Tools>Page Info>Media I can see the image The Location shows the URL and file location but it no longer exists

the size is labeled as "Unknown (not cached)

Is there some way I can download the image as it is on my computer? By keeping the computer offline. I do not want to lose this picture.

It is still slow, somewhat better than it was. But now the menu I had at the top of the page is gone and I used it frequently. This menu included drop downs such as File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Options. How can I get it back?

I use a piece of software which generates a parent pdf which contains an embedded zip file and an embedded pdf as attachments to the parent pdf. Is there currently a way to access the embeded pdf in Firefox? I'm certain I used to be able to do this, but now clicking the embedded pdf link does nothing. I can still access and download the embeded zip file using Firefox.

Thanks in advance.

p.s. I am aware I can access the embedded pdf through Adobe, but using Adobe I cant acccess the the Zip file without editing the registry. This approach is not an option. Similarly downloading other software is not an option.

p.p.s I cannot post a represantative file

I have already set "layers.acceleration.force-enabled" o "true", but I have no idea about that does this flag already cover Canvas?

When I send an email to someone who is not in my contact list, firefox autoloads the contact. I end up with a huge list of contacts that I do not want. A true waste of time trying to find one want, and also a huge waste of time deleting the autoloaded addresses. I cannot find an option to stop the autoloading.

It appears firefox is working REALLY HARD to keep putting the Google search up in successive versions, changing code to subvert the wishers of firefox customers. What is the latest method to drop this? I like having previously visited sites up and this makes the limited list even more limited especially now that they've added search with Amazon as well. It seems like the best reasons to use Firefox are being taken away by Mozilla. Is there a new browser that addresses the concerns Firefox addressed in the past, i.e. not being a slave to a company obsessed with taking over your browser experience for their own advertising income? Firefox has nice features but I'd rather lose a few features if that's required to lose the forced advertising and/or forced extra steps to avoid using their "partner" program. (Ironically I use Google for searches now and will explore other options based on this situation.)

Hi I'm wanting to do a live demo on a product in Firefox. I want to simulate logging in a Customer B then Switch to Customer b, each customer has their own URL www.website.customera.com and www.website.customerb.com...

Often in the demo the customer loses track, so I have 2 different Firefoxes, but it'd be great if there was a way for firefox to dynamically bring up a picture (company logo) when I go to each address (I don't own the websites). Anyway this is possible?
