I'm enjoying the feature of the pinned "Amazon Search" on Firefox Home – not just a shortcut to Amazon, but a shortcut with a blue magnifying glass that adds the "search with Amazon" parameter to the main search bar and allows you to search Amazon.com without having to visit the site first. I was wondering if it's possible to add a custom shortcut for other search engines... for example, YouTube?

For reference, I have a custom search keyword established in Settings for YouTube – "@youtube". But I want to know how I can have that keyword pinned to my Home page, just like "@amazon" currently is.

Thanks in advance.

I have a new installation of Firefox on a new M1 MacBook Pro. I copied over carefully selected settings files from my old computer, and now several icons are missing from the drop-down search and address boxes. I attempted renaming several of my transferred files to see if Firefox would rebuild them and correct the problem without success. Reinstalling Firefox was likewise unsuccessful. Does anyone know how to restore them? Please see attached image. Thank you.

As a member of the American Sociologial Association I have the ability to download PDF copies of ASA journal articles. Firefox simply will not work. So I switch to Safri and it works fine. I assume that Firefox security protections or something is blocking me. I cannot find any information in support for this problem. In Firefox I go in circles between this screen (attached) and logging into ASA. In Safari I download the article without this problem.

Can you direct me to a trouble shooting guide so that I know what to turn off when I want to download the articles without having to switch to Safari?

In my settings I have enabled that FF asks me where to save files whenever I click on a download or choose 'save as'. This works... until it doesn't. For no reason and at random times Firefox stops asking me where I want to save downloads. It also doesn't download them automatically. It basically ignores any commands to 'save as' or download files like PDFs. The only thing that fixes the problem is restarting FF.

I'm on the latest macOS with the latest FF version, but this has also occurred on previous versions of FF.

Any suggestions?

Webpages saved as PDFs are very large files compared to Safari

Webpages saved as PDFs using FF are very large files compared to the same webpage saved as a PDF using Safari. FF will create a 2-3 page pdf that is over 3 MB of data, while Safari saves the same pdf as 325KB. I never noticed this to be the case in the distant past but as my available storage space started shrinking rapidly on my MacBook I realized this might be the culprit.

I don't know when these large pdfs files started with FF but as I reviewed some similar files from several years ago, the same type of 2-3 page pdf in FF was in the KB, not MB of data. Can anyone help me understand why this is happening? Is there a setting that should be changed so these pdfs are not so bloated in size?

I am still using FF 88.0.1 having not made the leap to the newer versions of FF because of all the bad reviews. That said, I have not seen any info which indicates that FF scaled down pdf file sizes in the newer versions of FF.

In FF's Preferences pane PDFs are set to open in FF. Would it help reduce the file sizes if I changed that so they open in Mac's default application which I assume is Preview? I don't know if that's what the default preference was years ago when FF pdfs were much smaller files, or if changing that would make no difference at all.

Also, for what it's worth, I previously disabled FF's new-ish Print Preview Interface in about:config because it was consistently overriding the preset positions I set for my headers and footers, resulting in them being cut off the printed pages, however, the bloated pdfs were a problem long before FF introduced the Print Preview Interface feature.

Any suggestions on how to reduce the size of pdfs that FF is creating? I don't have and don't want to get a 3rd party application like Adobe Acrobat to deal with this, when I can simply use Safari as my browser. Thank you.

I use a 2021 Macbook Pro with all updated software. I consider Firefox my main web browser.

I have a Weebly website that I can always log into with Safari. But with Firefox, every few months or so, I'll get a message that the email address I use to log on is incorrect. The message usually lasts 2-3 weeks or so, and then, it mysteriously goes away and I can log in again (for a while). It has happened four times. Right now I'm in week 3 of not being able to log on with Firefox.

I have no idea if this is connected or not, but it all began shortly after I started using the Firefox Delay extension. I don't use it any more and the problem still happens, so it is a big question mark.

I only used the delay extension to log onto two websites - my weebly site and also my Craigslist ads. I've only had problems with these two accounts since then. I opened new accounts on Craigslist after stopping the delay extension - but I still have trouble with Craigslist email. I get emails from customers answering my ads but when I reply, I get a message that it was undeliverable, even though I think my reply was in fact, delivered. In both cases, the problem is with my email.

I very frequently open .bib files to get bibliographic information on scientific articles. The by far most convenient way to open these files, which are plain text files, is to just show them as text (either in the same tab, or a new tab). For example if you search for a publication on Google scholar, and click the quotation mark and then BiBTeX, you get the bibliographical information shown as text directly in the browser (see attached screenshot).

However, many other websites and journals instead give you a link to an actual .bib file, instead of just serving up the text. But since a .bib file is just a plain text file, it should be no problem for Firefox to display this text. However, when I go under settings and try to select default actions for .bib files, my only options are to either save the file, or open it with another application (i.e., not Firefox). For other file types, for example .pdf, it works to select Open in Firefox as the default action, but not for .bib files.

Is there a way to fix this problem?

I'm using Firefox 95.0.2 on Mac OS 12.1

Thanks, Tor
