bold textMein Firefox Browser verabschiedet sich täglich. Es wird immer eine Neuinstallation notwendig. Als AddIns verwende ich Worldwide Radio Viedeo DownloadHelper uBlock Origin.

Was ist los mit dem Browser? Hatte bisher nie Probleme damit.

mfg Hermann Achenbach

My Firefox browser says goodbye every day. A new installation is always necessary. As add-ins, I use Worldwide Radio Viedeo DownloadHelper uBlock Origin.

What's going on with the browser? Has never had any problems with it.

Where did the search page go? All I get is a page asking if I want to group things. No, I don't. I want to search for something. The only search bar is a Goggle bar at the bottom of the page. If I wanted to Goggle I wouldn't have Firefox. If, when I turn on the desktop, I find the same crap page I may uninstall here and there & use someone else. Be a shame. I've been using Firefox since it first came out. Have a good day.

I realize that the firefox browser has setting to prevent others from tracking your online activities, but what about if Firefox tracks you? What is prompting this question is that firefox pocket is offering up articles that seem to be tracking my facebook posts to an uncanny degree ( I am not signed into pocket - the articles are offered on my browser home page. I didn't even have a firefox account - opened one just now to post this query) Thanks, community, for your help

I thought I had managed this once but cannot find it. maybe on a previous version of Firefox? This allows databasing material with minimal discontinuity in workflow. I currently have about 1335 windows open and it would be economical to be able to save them easily to search as a curated database.

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

Outlook.com (webmail version, formerly Windows Live Hotmail, formerly MSN Hotmail) can be used for writing in multiple languages with a Firefox dictionary add-on for spell-check in multiple language. There seems to be a Microsoft issue and/or a Firefox issue. This issue has just recently appeared (reappeared, actually -- every so often this happens). In short, the "change language" function within the body of the e-mail text no longer works on a PC or on a Mac. The language add-ons (dictionaries) no longer work. Gmail and Yahoo Mail do not have this problem. The language dictionaries do work, though, in the subject headline and in the feedback area to Microsoft. You used to be able to right-click and set/change the language you were writing in. This is a recent issue (about a month). Microsoft says to get in contact with Firefox, although it sounds like Microsoft is prohibiting Firefox to allow its dictionary add-ons to function in Outlook.com (webmail).

Hi there

I am reporting, just in case this may be of assistance to others.

Since the last update of Firefox on 28 August 2020 I have been experiencing freezing and a blank screen as well as problems accessing the browser after the crash. I also noticed in my logs shortly after the AMD will experience a crash as well. Is it possible that this update has caused an incompatibility with the latest AMD update?

This is my report for firefox, I have blanked out my computer details in the report.

I have found Pocket a handy tool to bypass many pay walls that are on some news sites, such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. However, sometimes when I "save to pocket," it do not get the whole article, only something much less. Is there a limit to the size of an article that one can save?

In addition, there is the problem that it often does not save the article at all; rather, it is only link to the site and the article itself, where I face the paywall once again. When that happens, unless I sign in and/or want to pay, I end up ignoring the article(s).

Hello!

This is a minor issue but it's getting a bit annoying to deal with.

Every time i watch youtube videos i need to disable and re-enable the picture in picture mode to get the blue little icon to display so i can use it.

I have tried re-installing three times, troubleshoot and it's driving me crazy. I re-installed windows due to other issues i had and this problem persists.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?
