For my work, I need to paste a lot of links into text (on a website which is probably somewhat poorly programmed), and when I select some text and hit ctrl+k to create a hyperlink, Firefox doesn't recognize that it's a text box and "takes over" the ctrl+k function, focusing on the search/address bar instead of allowing me to insert the link. (The reason I blame the website is that other websites, like Jira, work fine for this)

Is there a way to disable the ctrl+k functionality in firefox? I've seen a couple old threads on disabling various shortcut keys but I don't know what the "Focus Search bar" key would be called in either the Browser Console or configs.


Thank you!!

I have a ton of unused tags that cannot be deleted. Apparently unused tags are supposed to be deleted automatically but for some reason they do not. These tags came from a Linux Firefox installation with the Linux distributions bookmarks.

Is there any way to manually delete them from Firefox?

A subfolder in one of my bookmark folders has disappeared from view on my Windows 10 device. It was there as recently as this past week (I use it frequently). It still shows (and contains bookmarks) when I look on my Android device under Desktop Bookmarks. Oddly enough, I decided to bookmark again one of the pages in the missing folder and the star next to the address indicated it's been bookmarked and the subfolder still shows up in the list when I attempted to bookmark it again. It also shows in the Bookmarks list when I go to Manage Bookmarks (as a subfolder where it has always been). Why is it not showing up when I try to access it from my bookmarks list when I click on the Show Your Bookmarks icon? It won't let me screen shot the dropdown menus.

Hey guys.

My question is very simple: how can I hide the Firefox 94 address bar on any screen size, including full screen?

I have been searching the internet for an answer, even in previous versions, the answers and suggestions were never clear. Including nonsense add-ons.

Is there any placement of moz://a? Does anyone have a tip that might actually work?

Thank you very much.

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

I recently googled a product and clicked on a link to their site (not an ad result). Shortly after I got an email from the company saying "thanks for checking us out." I never filled in any form with my email address. Is Firefox allowing Google to send my email address to the company so they can send marketing emails? I have Enhanced Tracking Protection on.

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

It took years to perfect my userchrome to make FF look exactly how I want. Once 91+ came out it wasn't even a question of fixing the floating tabs and condensing the height and menu spacing (though I tried all of it) but my own codes stopped working properly - I had code to set the background colour of menus/bookmark menus and when I upgrade they were the right colour but with thick white borders around them. This was more important to me than the floating tabs and I immediately downgraded to 90 where I've stayed. Can anyone help me figure out how to get MY codes to work with 91+ and/or to work together with the other fixes out there (tabs, condensed menus etc)??

Below is how my userchrome looks and attached is how my current set up looks. ANY advice is appreciated. THANK YOU.

"Homepage and new windows" setting allows "Custom URLs" as an option. "New tabs" setting allows only "Firefox home page (default)" or "Blank page"

Why is there no longer an option in "New tabs" for a "Custom URL" ??

Is this just another of those program designers' decisions of a less-is-more "improvement" . . . ? Well, it's not.

How can I return to having my Homepage URL also designated for new tabs?

Thank you.
