My default search engine was Norton Safe Search but now it does not appear as one of the options to choose. I cannot remember all of them. Bing and Google are two of them but not Norton Safe Search although I have been able to add it to the toolbar. Why is it no longer one of the options?

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?

Cheers Paul

Tab Grouping app replacement or work-around

I am trying to migrate from a very old version of Firefox (v. 55) to the current one, but there is an app that is more helpful to me that all the other features combined. That is the "Tab Grouping" app that will not run in any version of FF higher than v. 55.

In my work, which often includes a tremendous amount of research, I need to be able to quickly go from one group of tabs to another. If I had to open all these sites manually, that would take the better part of the day and frankly I don't have near the mental capacity to remember the tremendous number of tabs. I have had a couple replies (Thanks!) to this question sometime back, but unfortunately none were even close in performance.

So, can anyone direct me to an app that will allow very quick movement from different sets of windows/tab groups (please see screen shots below)? Is there anyway that I can get this app to work in Legacy mode? I have several other old apps that work perfectly well in this mode.

When I open a new browser and start to type www in the URL firefox auto suggests youtube.com instead of google.com. This is something that has just started with the new update. My previous version auto suggested google.com when I typed www into the URL. How do I get that back? I don't want to turn off the suggestion feature I just want it to default to google.

Help fix few setting compared to chrome (new user)

Hi! I finally decided to switch to Firefox :) So far it's great, yet there are a few things that are different from Chrome (that I've used for more than 10 years). Some of the things I found already, but there are others that are obscure, and I would appreciate your help in finding them!

1. When typing something in the search bar and clicking the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab, it auto switches to that tab. I found settings for auto-switching from bookmarks and a few other places, but this one still eludes me.

2. Reopen closed tab. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not open the last tab that I've closed (only some random one?). I have no idea how it should work, but on Chrome it just opens the last closed tab. Is it possible to change this behavior to work the same way?

3. I have multiple monitors (probably like most people nowadays). When I want to move a tab to another monitor, so it makes a new window it's super weird. Sometimes when I move it over another programs window it just doesn't work, sometimes if I move too quickly it also doesn't work. Any way to fix this?

Other than that I've enjoyed my stay so far :)

I'm a student, which means I'm constantly accessing my university's library page. I've run into a weird URL autocomplete issue that I can't seem to resolve.

Beginning to type "library" in the URL bar leads to Firefox autocompleting with a past college's library site that I haven't used in years. It's not in my bookmarks, I've deleted all its site data in Firefox's history, I've tried the "shift + delete" trick, but nothing's making this autocomplete go away. It doesn't seem like Firefox Suggest, but something else.

All I want is for my school's library to show up as the autocomplete. It's so annoying to navigate away from a website I haven't used in years every time.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

The new selection "Copy without site tracking" may eliminate certain codes, but does not remove all invasive data (my term). Consider this common URL occurrence:

link text

The new filter does absolutely nothing to this and when I pass this kind of URL on to others, I do not want to include all that crapola. Currently I have to manually edit the link, which can really get tiresome when passing on a lot of links.

Is there a way to modify anything in Firefox to accommodate this?

I can't find any way to group windows. Yes, "windows".

I have about three dozen windows open (yes, there are a lot of tabs in them), and not just at home. And it’s hard to quickly find your bearings when you need to switch to another task (workspace). It would be nice to at least change the color of the windows, depending on the type of work. But in the API API I don’t see the ability to define a window property where you can specify a group identifier, which can be used to restore the color after re-opening FireFox.

If FireFox had a built-in or its own reliable extension for organizing thematic work, a deferred workspace (without losing the contents of windows). Arc browser - they realized that what browsers have been denying for a decade is already overdue, and they will be able to take over the market.

I tried several extensions for saving, restoring and organizing workspaces, and came to a clear conclusion: only the built-in FireFox solution for restoring windows after a crash/opening is the only truly reliable solution. There is no trust in extensions that are not supervised by a good team of developers and testers; there is a guarantee that data will be lost in the near future.

It is possible that in recent years some expansions have been completed. I'd be glad to know about it if you point it out. But here a question arises on a separate topic: improving the mechanism for rating and testing extensions, recommended extensions program.
