Running WIN10. I have used FF w Google for about 20 years, and always had new searches open in same window, new tab. Following recent refresh of FF, that seems to be not possible. Links open in new tab, but not searches. In about:config the browser.search.openintab setting is True

I have closed and reopened FF, and closed and reopened WIN10.

What might be over-riding this? Many thanks!

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Greetings...

Yesterday, my laptop was functioning without difficulty. Today, when I logged into Windows 10, instead of my usual profile/desktop appearing, a default profile/desktop appeared.

I performed a system restore using the most recent restore point (two days ago). The system restore completed successfully and upon restart and login, my usual profile/desktop appeared.

However, my installation of Firefox no longer completely exists. In the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory, many of the files that customarily exist no longer appear, including firefox.exe.

Most certainly, I do not want to lose any of my bookmarks, open tabs, or custom settings that I have established in my Firefox over many years of use. What would be the best way for me to restore Firefox on my laptop, while preserving all of my bookmarks, open tabs, custom settings, etc?

Would a simple reinstall of Firefox accomplish this task, without my losing any of my bookmarks, open tabs, custom settings, etc? Or, is there something else that I should do?

I would sincerely appreciate your feedback regarding this problem. Thank you!

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

I typically opt-out of crash-reporting and privacy invasive features yet when I checked my settings:

"Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla" was enabled along with "Allow Firefox to install and run studies".

Did I overlook on installation or was I opted-in by a Firefox update?

Take any example GIF file on pretty much any website. if I right-click the image, I can "Save image as", but my only format option is webp. I have the same issue if I visit the direct link to the file and choose "save page as". Surely there is a way to save the page in its original format right? It's a GIF so I should have the option to save it as a GIF?

I've also noticed if I right-click a GIF and "copy image" I only get a single frame of the image on my clipboard, but I would be able to work around that if I could just save it the way I want to.

Hello Mozilla, I like your picture-in-picture feature in Firefox. Is it possible to check via JavaScript if a user has PIP enabled? Some events like "enterpictureinpicture" are described on your website https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Picture-in-Picture_API, but have not yet been implemented. When will this happen? It is important for web designers to know whether a visitor uses this feature - for example to hide the original video. Or is there another method to hide it?
