I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

Older versions of extensions?

My old PC died, luckily, I had a new (secondhand) one ready to go.

I am using a pre-quantum version of Firefox.

Where can I get legacy versions of extensions that I need?

Yes, they've all been updated and maintained, but, there are several whose functions are severaly depreciated - including one where I would now have to actually PAY MONEY to do what I used to be able to do with ease on the legacy version.

Urgently seeking legacy versions that all worked fine before my old PC hit the dust last week.

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

New change?? No longer different PDF handling for in-browser vs. Download panela

On FF v78.0.2 (Win 10/64-bit), it used to be that I could open PDF links within a website using FF's built-in PDF Viewer. However, after saving them to disk, when I opened the PDF from the Downloads panel, it would open in my preferred 3rd party app. This was desired and worked perfectly.

But this seems to have changed! I either have to commit to the built-in always, or an external app always, irrespective of whether I am opening from a browser link or the download panel.

This is a terrible behavior. FF should open PDFs in the download handler (like ALL other file types there) with the OS's preferred PDF handler, which, in my case, is not FF's built-in Viewer.

If open a PDF in the built-in Viewer and save it from there, why would I want to re-open it in the built-in PDF viewer when opening from the download panel?

FF's built-in Viewer is great for a quick view of a PDF, I quite like it. But if I take the time to save it, I typically want more advanced functionality, like highlighting, filling in forms, etc. It worked perfectly before, please revert and stop fixing things that aren't broken. Or at least differentiate between the download panel and website links. Is there any hope in submitting a bug report?

Viewing a national newspaper site today, Firefox popped up an odd message Continue to installation of Flash player. It then loads (tries) https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu and an ID string. I think I can run Flash already on my browser so why do I have to do this?

The URL worries me, it may be genuine but would like confirmation it is. As mentioned I can already see/use Flash so why the message?

Search for https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu returns nothing other than an Alexa position. Thanks in advance. McP/

Hello


When it comes to add-ons, then I add three of four at once or the same purpose, I try them all out, decide if I want to keep any of them, and then remove the ones I see that do not serve my target. All normal.


I know that it requires permission in order to have an add-on show in Private Browsing, that's done.

Now I had 8 add-ons on the toolbar, I disabled two or three of them so I can try two new ones. I did not like the new ones, so I just enabled the ones I had disabled, which where previously showing in the toolbar, all of this in Private Browsing having the permission of showing them.


As I enabled the add-ons again, they are not showing anymore in the toolbar..!!

Okay, I removed them and re-added them..not showing. I also did: not allow in Private Mode, then re-allowed..not showing. I simply restarted the browser in both normal and Private Mode, and yet not showing.. I also restarted my pc, and retried all previous steps again

  • This mainly happened as I removed the extension from toolbar, then added it again.

Still also 90% of the time, just disable then enable again, and only a few are showing again. Either when disabled then re-enabled or when removed then re-added*


So, what to do ?

After a deletion of a profile; an attempt to sync back the preferences results in the search bar having the default engine not synchronised. It is overwritten to Google, despite doing sync for DuckDuckGo. I have done a parallel test on the "tracking protection" and the preference for that one does sync. Thank you for any suggestions!

EDIT: The DuckDuckGo addon accomplishes the desired effect. However, it only hides the problem.

This morning I got a window that stated support for Adobe Flash Player (FP) was ending DEC 2020. It asked me to either delay or uninstall, I chose to delay. After researching, it appears FP is going away. What happens when I uninstall FP? Do websites stop working? Is there a compatible replacement? I'm unable to find a definitive answer. In several web articles about the subject there is just a general, yep it's ending but nothing moving forward.

After the last update a few days ago, I have had to go into privacy and security and reset everything, plus go into about:config and reset media.autoplay also. Still, even if the main video on a page is blocked, the little floating video remains and the sliding and floating ads and such still remain. I really need a fix for this. I do research online for a living, and having to close all these annoyances all the time is costing me time, thus money.

How do I now stop all this? Even on this page, an annoying drop-over is annoying me. Time is money, and every second counts in my work. Any help would be appreciated. TIA

I just changed my browser because the version I had before wasn't compatible with a site I needed to use for school. On this version instead of using the cursor designs that are used everywhere else, it uses it's own versions and I can't find a way to change this. When I go to click on a link it turns into this really ugly version of the hand cursor instead of the normal one. I know this doesn't seem important but it's actually triggering panic attacks for me. Please help! I'm using linux mint.
