Hi, I've made a desktop-link for Firefox like: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -new-window url That works fine but is it possible to get a new window in a web-link also, like: http://"c:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe" -new-window url This link opens only a new window without the url, what's wrong?

And how can I find the local copy of an web-link.ico? Thank you for help. Uli

How to use 'This time search with' with one click instead of two?

When I do a search using the address bar, clicking a search engine won't take me to the result directly. Instead a blue box (e.g. @Google) pops up in the address bar, and I have to click one more time to do the search. But the Firefox installed in my office needs one click only (i.e. no blue box pop-up). Is there a way to prevent the blue box from appearing?

(Both versions of Firefox are up to date, 83.0 64bit)

I have 2 monitors i one room and TV in another (as 3rd display). I have Firefox icon in the taskbar on all 3 monitors (in Windows 10). Sometimes I go to room to watch some YouTube video on TV, but my Firefox window in on another monitor. Also sometimes when I switch from Full Screen display to normal, my Firefox window can move to the wrong monitor. It would be great if I could right click on the taskbar Firefox icon and click some option like "move browser window to this monitor". Is is possible to do it with some AddOn or in some other way?

I have a problem with FireFox and it has been suggested I "refresh" it.

I have been down this road a long time ago and it was a world of hurt for me.

Why?

Well: a - it didn't fix the problem and b - there seems to be little documentation on "how to put things back to the way they were if that doesn't fix the problem".

So I am reluctant to do this as I have a lot of open tabs. From memory it is 47 WINDOWS (sessions?) of FireFox and countless tabs in each of those. I'd say the range is from 1 to...... 40 (at a guess)

Anyway, back to the topic:

I go through the motions. It does/doesn't work.

How do I put things back to normal? (Though yes that means the problem will remain. But if it doesn't work, it would be nice to be at least back to having those tabs I use where they were.)

I feel ridiculous but I have always set FireFox to open a new window when I clicked on a link. For some reason it stopped doing that today. It just follows the link in the existing window. I cannot find the option to get the old action. Searches bring up methods from many obsolete versions. Even this site brings up over 2800 hits but I can't find the one I need.

When switching tabs, Firefox allows you two behaviours: Recent Order or Tab Order but you have to choose between them. This is a trick to have THE TWO BEHAVIOURS TOGETHER Catch: AutoHotkey is required.

In Firefox Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs" mark enable recent order (ticked) Then compile the next script in Autohotkey and keep it running.


  1. if WinActive("ahk_exe firefox.exe")

^Q::Send, ^{TAB} ^Tab::Send, ^{PGDN} +^Tab::Send, ^{PGUP}

  1. if

Now with Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab you move right and left between Tabs and with Ctrl+Q you move to last viewed Tab. I choose Q because is next to Tab but you can change it in the second line of the script. Cheers!
