When I am already on a website and try to search a new website in the search bar it opens a new tab. Is there a option to search in the same tab? I already tried browser.search.openintab in the about:config. And after restarting the browser that didn't work.

I'm trying to connect to octopi.local and keep getting the "Internal Sever Error" when trying to connect to my Octopie with octopi.local. This has never happened before and all I can figure out it that my browser has updated to version 96. How do I get around this so i can monitor my printers?

Both my wife and I have lost work and time due to Firefox notifications. I have seen my wife throw her hands up and ask me what to do because she has been hacked and now all it will let her do is change her Firefox color theme or whatever else Firefox is pushing. For people with physical or other handicaps these notifications are extremely stressful. I did the research (4hours) in Firefox archives and getting caught in the Firefox loop that took me back to the same wrong information. BTW, where is the "options" category in Privacy and Security? I have installed a block though I doubt it will work and would like to hear the correct way to stop or derail Firefox notifications. Suggestion: Use a pop up message like a sticky note instead of de-prioritizing the web page I am attempting to or looking at. I could be contacting poison control since I can't hear or (this actually did happen) researching what to do with explosives in my back yard that are smoking and dripping that I just plowed up AND the local law is a 1-800 number and will get back to me when they listen to their machine. When my freedom of choice is taken, it pushes me to not support the taker. If I can be of assistance let me know and I will do what I can to improve the Firefox notification scenario.

I want to open all .pptx, docs and .xlsx files to open on office viewer page online before downloading. (https://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=)

If we insert the link in the field after src, it opens the doc on the browser itself.

Please help me

Two new problems: Most recent is

"firefox having trouble restoring your pages...start new session"   

And...for several months, anything I print from website (i.e credit card statement) is in HUGE type that doesn't even come close to fitting the page. This does not happen when I print from Edge, nor when printing documents (pdf, notepad or anything NOT from a website), so the problem has to be in Firefox.

I still use the Quantum 96 portable along with Firefox ESR 52.9 for certain sites due to the superior customization and functionality of the latter via extensions that do not work on Quantum. However, I would like to sync the ESR passwords with Quantum, but I cannot login into Sync on ESR since "sign in" results in "Blocked by Content Security Policy."

Hi,

This morning I logged into my Gmail using incognito mode and then closed the tab. Now when I visit Gmail inside incognito it logs me in immediately as if it saved all session information like cookies. I faced this issue first time on any browser and there is no mention of such issue elsewhere. I am on Version 96.0.1

I have encountered a frustrating situation on several websites for quite some time now. I have tried to find out what is wrong but haven't been able to get an answer so I hope someone here can help me.

When I am on certain websites I am unable, for example, to watch a video or log in on a site if I decide to make a purchase. For instance, I receive channel 6ABCnews which I can read with no problem but if I want to watch one of their videos I have to switch to Chrome before it will play. Or I can look at items for sale on shopDisney but if I decide to buy something, I can't sign in unless I use Chrome. There is another online store that will let me see certain things (such as the return policy or how to order online) but it won't let me see their products unless I switch to Chrome. One last example has to do with my local newspaper. I can read the entire digital edition but if I try to place an ad (without ever leaving the site) I have to use Chrome. I attempted to upload images of the ad order form as it should look (when I use Chrome) and how it looks when using Firefox. Unfortunately, the Chrome image wouldn't upload.

Any suggestions as to what might be causing this? And is there anything I can do about it? I refuse to make Chrome my default browser which would appear to be the easiest solution.

Thank you!

When my Google calendar loads in Firefox the reminder entries don't display by default. All other calendar entries such as appointments, birthdays, etc. display just fine. To make the reminders display, I have to click on the calendar main menu (the three lines) and check the box next to reminders. Then the reminders display fine. However, the next time I start Firefox the reminders once again don't display. Once I have the reminders set I save the settings, but that doesn't help. I don't have this issue with Edge or Chrome. Has anyone else run into this, and if so, have they been able to fix it? Richard

So, I've come to realize that, over a recent PC upgrade, the red, squiggly underline on misspelled words disappears when the Backspace key is hit. I'm glad that Pocket has reappeared on my home page, since I spent hours trying to find it a couple of years ago, unsuccessfully, after it disappeared, but now this spell check issue is a bit disconcerting. But now it appears that it only happens within Facebook ...there's a surprise. Nope, it's Messenger/Firefox only. Messenger/Edge works as it should (red squigglies remain, despite depressing Backspace), and the squigglies also remain within this text field. So it seems specific to Messenger/Firefox. Firefox (96.01)

Whenever I close Firefox and restart it I find that my browser is set to dark mode every time, I discovered that the culprit in my congif is the line "browser.theme.toolbar-theme" which sets itself to 0 every time I start firefox. Despite every time I change it back to 1 so that I keep light mode on. Is there any solution to this or maybe a way I can reset my about:config back to default as a nuclear option? I'd rather not lose all my tabs if possible but this is quite annoying.
