I use multi-account containers extensively. Unfortunately, my laptop recently broke so I had to pull out my desktop which was in storage. I hadn't used my desktop in a few years, so I had to update Firefox to make it work.

Then I discovered that the multi-account container feature no longer works. It says it isn't supported in this latest version.

Is there any good way to fix this?

The multi-account container feature was what finally let me switch to the safety and privacy of Firefox. Prior to that, I used Chrome, but the multi-account containers were even better since I didn't have to tie a different account to each container.

It looks like I could roll Firefox back to an earlier version, but that would require creating an entirely new firefox account. It took me a substantial amount of time to get this one set up the way I like. I understand that you all want to protect my data, but frankly I feel like I've been put between a rock and a hard place.

Thank you for any help you are able to provide.

I want everything on my drive only. Not on cloud thru One Drive. I have tried searching but everything I find in incorrect. For example PC settings one drive etc. I can't find anything that is correct for instructions. I don't even see anything that says as a one drive option. My next question is then what happens to everything that has one drive in the path where do they go? I don't want my local information saved anywhere other than my computer not a cloud somewhere. Is this something you can direct me to where I can solve this? Thanks

Hi , I often download photos from Firefox by topic to make videos. Is there any software or application on Firefox that can help me pre-name the image ?

For example: I'm looking for pictures of Trees and Sea

when I click to save image as for Sea images, it often gives random names and I end up having to rename the images to Sea-0001, Sea-0002

if a photo named Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Therefore, my usual way is to write Sea- and copy the text

and when I save a photo when click to save image as, I will change the name in Hud , I paste it and it becomes

Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

and in my work file I'll sort the photos by name

So , is there any application on Firefox that allows me to preset the word Sea- ? That means every time I click save image as, the system will automatically name it Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Thank you

I had to Restart/Refresh Firefox because I lost my dropdown menus and then the Google Search bar in the right-hand corner disappeared. Somehow I got it to reappear but it's too small. I followed steps in several different posts and can't get Google Search Bar to widen. 1. I placed the mouse pointer between the search bar and the address bar and nothing happened. 2. The following didn't work for me because I can't find the “Use Small Icons” box: "Click the “View” tab on the program menu and choose “Toolbars.” Select “Customize” from the fly-out menu and a “Customize” toolbar screen loads. Deselect the “Use Small Icons” box and click “Done” to enlarge the icons on the Firefox toolbar." I attached a screenshot of what FF Browser looks like.

Hi,

As the subject says, i cannot remove the up and down arrows from forms that have a numerical input even though autofill/history options are cleared and disabled. I've even tried deleting cookies, cache, site data and so on, to no avail. I've also tried a clean terminal with no extensions installed and i have the same issue. Other browsers do not have this issue on the exact same form. I am at a loss, any assistance would be appreciated.

Is it possible to change Firefox's default keybinds? I don't see an option for this in Settings, nor in about:preferences or about:config. Some discussions on these forums suggest autoconfig.conf but that doesn't seem to have any options for keybinds. I found several KB articles on customizing Firefox, but none said anything about default keybinds:

KB: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars KB: Firefox advanced customization and configuration options KB: Customizing Firefox Using AutoConfig

For example, I'd like to change the keybind to open a private window from the default [Shift]+[Cmd]+P to [Shift]+[Cmd]+N. The latter is standard on most other browsers and is in my muscle memory. Is there any way to do that?

I have Startparge set as my default search engine. I used to type directly into the address bar (see first image).

Press Enter, and the Startpage results page for this search phrase would show up. Somehow, this has now changed. I press Enter, but the result is just the Startpage home page, with a blank search box (see second image). So I then have to type the same phrase in again in Startpage's own box. This just trips me up.

The crazy thing is that this only happens sometimes - but more often than not. I haven't seen it work right for weeks: I just did it now to make screenshots, and it worked wrong. I just did it again and it worked as expected: pressing Enter took me to Startpage's results.

Any clues how to change settings to fix this?

Hello – How to recover Google Search results without every result being an image, without blocking every image either.

I want the old style, where an image from Wikipedia was shown when available, and occasionally others. Whatever algorithm(s) were used before the 123 update are what I want, preferably without reverting to Firefox 122.

Every result an image is wasting so much of my time that I've resorted to searching in Opera (which means at least 80% of my internet time).

Cursory examination of Firefox settings offered no relief.

Thanks,

Hi there,

In the search settings, I have set DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and removed all other engines from the list of options. However, I often notice that Google (which I have removed from the options) has replaced DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and has again been added as an optional search engine, without me knowing. Why is this happening? Is it possible to stop it happening, and if so, how can I stop it happening?

firefox is using so much memory that it is causing lag and loading problems.

i know that the root of my problem is that i have an unholy amount of tabs open all the times but if i go into the process manager for firefox i can see that the memory problem is actually usually only 1 or 2 tabs that are using over 1GB of memory. this has only been a problem in the last few weeks so i am not sure if something has changed on the firefox side of things.

I looked into tab unloading and this seems like it would solve my problems. however the unloading process only happens automatically when the total amount of memory that firefox is using approaches the maximum amount of memory you system has available. with 32GB of ram and firefox reaching not even 16GB when completely stretched the automatic process will likely never hapen. yet firefox is still using enough memory that it is causing itself problems.

i dont really want to have to unload my tabs all the time to keep firefox's memory in check. is there anyway to lower the amount of memory that causes firefox to automatically unload tabs? i have seen extensions that say they will sleep tabs that are not being used. however they all seem to just sleep tabs that are not currently in use rather than sleeping tabs that have not been used that day.

i feel like the tab uploader is such a good feature in firefox that i would love to be able to use it to solve my problems. however i am not sure how to make this happen in the laziest way possible.

Hi there,

I have to save a lot of PDF documentation in Firefox browser. When I use a software and I click a button the print preview window appears, after that I save the documentation in pdf. Is there any way to automated it?

I use these configs (about:config and about:preferences):

browser.download.folderList "2" browser.download.dir "/path/to/download/directory" browser.helperApps.neverAsk.saveToDisk "*" print_printer "Mozilla Save to PDF" print.always_print_silent "true"

Always ask you where to save files -> not checked Content-type PDF -> Save file in the Applications section At now this config is does not work. I want to click the button, and it will download into the correct folder.
