Hi

I am using mozilla firefox on windows 10.

I sometimes fat finger ctrl+shift+w or ctrl+shift+q which closes the browser instead of just closing the tab which I indented.

Is there a way to disable these 2 key binds?

Best regards child

Hi,

I was previously using Windows 11 with Firefox, and changed back to Windows 10 as W11 has way too many issues on lot of points. But there was one thing I liked in Firefox on W11 is the scroll bars. They were narrow and discreete, and expanded when I hover with the mouse. I prefer that over the wide and very flat Windows 10 bar.

Is there a way to get this new bar on Windows 10 ?

Thanks in advance for your help, have a great day.

Every once in awhile, a link will appear in my computer's menubar for a video I watched in Youtube. The link allows me to start the video where apparently left off when watching it, but not delete it. Why does this happen and how do I stop it?

This extension has attached itself to Mozzila/Firefox moz-extension://b8b74ec4-b566-444c-a67b-cc919887caaf/newtab/index.html, and it's making them act negatively.

Before the new update whenever I downloaded a file it would ask where to save the file to every time, now it just asks once then automatically saves any new files I download to the same folder as the previous ones, forcing me to then go to that folder and manually move it to the correct folders. Is there any way to change it back to the right way it was done before they decided to remove our choice? My setting is set to "Always ask you where to save files", with the emphasis on "Always".

HI! I'm using Firefox 98 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04. after the last update I found several settings changed and I had to reset them, but there is one setting I can't manage. In the download preferences I set all the Microsoft Excel entries to "Always ask", but every time that I try to see an Excel file (no download, just open with ...), this is automatically downloaded. I definitively don't want to download it. How can I change this behavior? P.S.: I realized right now that there is the same problem with .docx files and I don't know how many others file types.

I can enter addresses manually but it does not save them automatically. I went through and enabled everything I could find but still only the one address I entered manually. Another option I tried to find is importing the addresses from chrome but I only found this option for logins and passwords.

The mute icon only shows on hover and takes up 50% of the tab size so I'm constantly accidentally muting tabs without realizing it and silencing video calls and the like. The top Google result for this issue -- rightfully yelled in all caps because this is an absolutely horrid UX -- says to set browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon to false, but that does absolutely nothing in FF 100.0

Several months back, for some unfathomable reason, you eliminated GoodSearch as one of the eligible default search engines users can select. Given its squeaky-clean reputation and charitable nature, I can't for the life of me understand WHY. And just how much begging and grovelling will it take to persuade you to restore it to the available options?? *P*L*E*A*S*E*!!!!!!!

P.S. Making this contact form so damned hard to find isn't exactly endearing, either.

(I have the email client I want, Thunderbird, presumably since that is set in Windows to handle email. But I need a screenshot of the Settings page for a support KB article I am translating Change the program used to open email links.

I have been successfully using FireFox for many years, recently we downsized into a Condo,now 81 years young. I have FireFox as my default browser choice, but it only lists Google on the search bar, when I type in my search in the box under the Firefox name it immediately jumps up to the top of the page Google browser.

How do I get back my screen to use FireFox as my search engine ?? I have tried to change it but will only give me two options Google or Google ?? Is it possible to go back to the screen and try and start again??

Many thanks to anyone who will give me info as to how to rectify my problem, be gentle with me as I am efficient in using the computer but less so trying to solve my problems. Robin
