Hello..............when I open a new Firefox browser tab, I see the heading Top Sites and a selection of eight links, most of them to the websites that I use frequently.

Needing 12 rather than eight, I found the facility to select a second row. But the second row also has eight links and some of them are not wanted.

Please tell me how I can select 12 links and stop at that number. If I right click the three dots in the top right corner of one of the unwanted links and then select Dismiss, another unwanted link replaces it.

I know this is a simple problem but it has defeated me. Please help.

And thank you..................Richard

Firefox 88.0.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3

Two evenings ago I noticed my address wasn't filling in when I was checking out on a shop and thought it was simply the site. Yesterday morning, same issue, different site. Credit cards weren't filling in. I tried another site and another and another... All the same issue!

I tried disabling extensions, clearing my cache, quitting and restarting Firefox, and several suggestions on this forum for about:config. Nothing has worked.

I don't know if the attached screenshot will help. Hopefully it does.

I hadn't touched a single setting prior to this happening so I have no idea why it simply decided to stop?

Thank you!

I fought for over 3 hours to keep Firefox my browser. The second anther window would covered the section of the general settings Firefox was removed. It did not show what browser took its place, which is unusual. I had to go to my desktop to find out, and it was always Edge. Then once it became clear to whomever is monitoring me that desktop was helping me, It disappeared. Replaced by solid color. I could only watch YouTube videos with Firefox, but under it, instead of my desktop and icons were just solid colors. I arrange my window so I could see the moment my desktop returned but it never did. even the keyboard shortcuts did not worked. Call me crazy if you must, but I don't do drugs nor do I drink alcohol. Some of you, I hope, are familiar with Microsoft's intrusion in to our systems to "Improve the Windows for all". Equally, some of you would know that what that means is that Microsoft is using our systems as a Relay to get data in, get data out and get data through our systems. this improves their profits especial for steeling our bandwidth instead of having to pay like we do. I know that some of you are getting ready to have the guys come over and put me in a funny looking jacket. Hey I'm getting better in collecting evidence. In the beginning, journals, print screen shots, etc I considered proof. But then when I went to their folders they were gone. So I started using my cell to take photos and short videos of the strange happenings, documenting my plight. You see, only if my keystrokes were spied on would Microsoft know where to go and what to delete. I'm including a photo of another strange happening, where Microsoft uninvited stole about 6-7 GB of my storage for whatever reason. then that Ghost partition would move, appear and disappeared. I took 2 dozen photos of it. I was able to get in its Properties and verified it was a Microsoft created partition. When did it started that Microsoft can take even 1 byte of our storage. Does the stupid privacy agreement gives them such right? Nope I spend quite some time but nowhere does it say that for what ever reason Microsoft can steal chunks of our storage hard drives. That night I disabled my PC's WIFI, unplug it, remove the battery, Disabled the sync and turn it off. Then I did the same to my cell. Now this way Microsoft would not be able to access my system. Though I knew they left "tools in my system to prepared it for the data transferring, That night they would find the door closed. The next morning I turn my system on. Half way through boot up, I saw the same solid colors of the previous night. Without letting the boot up complete I forced a Hard Power off. I went to have my coffee, but I knew the watchers did not expect that, so they cast you wear on your arm and if you sneeze , Boom you have a mid size "Fat Boy" going off on your arm. were calling reinforcement or try to say Sorry, in their own way. After an hour I turned my system on waiting and watching for the solid colors. Nothing. My system boot up, my desktop was there, all my Apps and programs were where they're supposed to be. If there was a technical issue, there would have been some minor related issues left behind. But there were none. what Company on the planet can do that? Apple? Sure but Windows it's not their product, Elon Musk likes cars and space, Bezos (Amazon) loves retail, the Government? Sure but what for? Oh, yeah, I do have a photo of me and my wife in Hiroshima, Japan from July, 2005. It was Microsoft They had the means, the know how, and Opportunity. The pictures am sending you are in HD(large files) and I hope this program will let me send you at least one of them. I have about 2 dozen. I am so sorry for such long explanation but without it you would think that I lost my "Portofolio". You probably think that anyway. I don't blame you Thank you with all my heart. (Now I'm going to connect my cell and my P C and pick that picture. If you want more... Please, just whispered...) The Photo is too large. I'm going to zip it.

Hello!

I don't like to use DuckDuckGo, therefore I changed the Default Search Engine which works quite well. In addition I removed DuckDuckGo from the Search Shortcuts.

Nevertheless when I open a new tab and just type in "d" the first suggestion from auto-complete is always DuckDuckGo. This is quite annoying since one of my favourite websites starts with "d" as well. Is there a possibility to force auto-complete to suggest a specific website when I tipe in "d" or at least prevent auto-complete from suggesting DuckDuckGo?

Thanks!

I have firefox developer edition 88.0b9, I have disabled updates using policies.json(DisableAppUpdate: true), so the infamous "update to the latest version" popup with the green icon went away. But now it seems there's another form of those popups that firefox employs. And in the search bar this time. Why aren't they disabled by DisableAppUpdate? How can I disable them using about:config or something of the sort? Pretty sure I've got no malware or anything, always been careful about that kind of thing. Don't have many programs installed. Don't have any addons except an adblocker. All the buttons on that annoying popup lead to official mozilla resources: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ So what do I do with those popups? I have no intention of updating(I don't want any redesigns, any new functionaly, any other things that would disrupt me and change the stuff I'm used to). Only want to disable those popups. That's the entire reason I used policies.json - to disable those annoying popups. But now another form of them appears.

Dear all,

I recently have a problem with the Bitwarden Addon (1.49.1) and Firefox (88.0) on Windows 10 with my Surface Pro 7.

When I activate the the addon the window pops up and when I then tap on something in the window, for example, the settings or the field for password entry, then the extension closes.

This happens only in touch mode, when I tap on the windows. When I use a mouse or a pen it doesn't close.

There are some workarounds like open the addon in new windows or opening the virtual keyboard from the tray. But it has worked very well for a long time. Also in other chromium based browser it works still.

I contacted the Bitwarden Support and they could reproduce the problem, but are not able to fix it, because it has something to do with the particular environment for the add-ons in Firefox.

Is there something in the settings, which coud fix the problem or is it possible that it will be fixed in another update?

Best regards,

Sascha

TOP Sites on Firefox HomePage Will Not Stay or are Gone

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.

Can I change the keyboard shortcut for Responsive Design Mode which is Ctrl+Shift+M?

The fingerprints are the biggest privacy threat on the internet. Firefox has great add-ons for that, but the problem is the screen size (resolution). I have a very rare screen size, only 1% has it, so I'm always unique on the net. You can change the resolution using Responsive Design Mode, but I would like to get it faster, at least by changing the shortcut.

It would be great if someone would make an add-on for this, that is, with one click to the Responsive Design Mode.
