I am not ALLOWED to ever find the location of the firefox address or navigation bar. The "people" of firefox use these two names all over this site, and not once will anyone tell me the location, or how they may be accessed. If the most basic data is EXCLUDED, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, how is the new user to find anything? I have spent 7 hours on your website, because this browser idles at almost a gig of RAM on the browser homepage, I researched and found out I'm supposed use the "navigation bar" unfortunately someone forgot include it's location. It's great that you include the data that the "minimize memory usage" button exists as a tool, BUT WHERE IN THE HELL WAS IT HIDDEN? I have never experienced a product that intentionally excludes instructions, and there is no way to get any help or service, and I'm left with this poor excuse for customer service with leaving questions that will never be answered. Thanking you in advance for NO HELP OR SERVICE, James Erb(email address).

EVERY time I want to delete a web page from my "Top Sites" I receive the following unnecessary message: "Are you sure you want to delete every instance of this page from your history? This action cannot be undone."

Well, of course it can't be undone. I don't want it to be undone.

Is there a method of eliminating that nag question each and every time I delete a web site from "Top Sites". I enjoy the "Top Site" feature, but the nag-on-delete is quite annoying.

Is there a simple way to block a website from ever loading without downloading special addons like Blocksite, just type in the website name and it can not load?

I have a couple of websites that keep popping up from time to time unexpectedly. There must be a way to simply add websites names e.g. www.ihatetheseguys.net to someplace on my Firefox browser, something like a BANNED LIST. And once added that website can never open on my browser again.

This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do.... it would be like the exceptions list we can access in options where we add websites to a list and they are allowed to open, but this would be the opposite.

I have searched around and it seems there are some add-ons/apps/programs I can download and run on my computer, one called BLOCKSITE. But I dont want to download anything. This seems like it should be a very simple to thing to do on the option page. Simply add a BANNED LIST where we can type in websites and when they try to nope they get noped away to oblivion.

I've researched the net and every "solution" that has been offered fails to work.

I'd like the awesome bar (address bar) not to remember or suggest anything and if by chance it does remember something I want CCleaner to be able to delete the entries.

This is a deal breaker. If I can't protect my privacy using Firefox I'll find another browser. I am a longtime Firefox user and want to stay with Firefox.

Hello! I've got a problem since a week in Firefox, all my sessions and settings on websites are not saved.

For exemple, when I want to use YouTube, I first get connected, then I turn on the dark mode. Until I close Firefox, it will save those settings, even in new tabs. But if I close and reopen Firefox, those settings are gone. I need to connect again on Youtube, and dark mode is no more activated.

Same issue on all websites except for those which were saved before the first time I saw the problem. But if I close my sessions on them, then it will be the same.

I tried to completely remove (program and userdata) Firefox and install it again, still the same. I tried to clear the cache, still the same. And I tried to reinitialize Firefox with its own function, still the same.

So I'm wondering if someone would help, because Firefox is my favorite browser and I can't get used to another.

Thanks, Tun.

PS : My english may be weird, I'm sorry for that.

Ok, it is a pretty simple question.

"How do I force FF to reload a page?"

Searching I find:


Windows/Linux:

   Hold down Ctrl and click the Reload button.
   Or, Hold down Ctrl and press F5.

Which is not right from what I see.

If I press CTL and the reload button (which I take as being the one which looks like a near complete circle with an arrow turning clockwise.

It doesn't mention that it also opens a new tab.

However!

Pressing <CTL> <F5> it refreshes the page. Can't confirm that it is a forced reload.

Can someone help me clarify (and maybe fix the discontinuity in what does what?

I use multiple profiles for work and personal browsing, and it's very important that I know which window will open a link when I click it.

I do this today on Chrome by focusing on the browser I want to receive the link before clicking it. Otherwise you have to constantly copy/paste a link from one window into another, which is a huge time waste.

This is today, the only thing that is stopping me from moving from Chrome to Firefox. Perhaps I missed something when I tried doing this in the past. Is there a setting or something else that can get Firefox to have a similar behavior?

One of the reasons I prefer Firefox to Chrome is that when I right-click on a link, I can open the link in a new tab.

I usually read news in Chrome because, on some sites, I open 20 new tabs without moving from the main news page. I can then move to the tabs, read one, close it, move to the next, etc.

I would like to move my news reading to Firefox, but I would like to be able to choose whether (or not) to open a new tab at the time the tab is being opened.

Is this possible?

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!
