I have 2 monitors i one room and TV in another (as 3rd display). I have Firefox icon in the taskbar on all 3 monitors (in Windows 10). Sometimes I go to room to watch some YouTube video on TV, but my Firefox window in on another monitor. Also sometimes when I switch from Full Screen display to normal, my Firefox window can move to the wrong monitor. It would be great if I could right click on the taskbar Firefox icon and click some option like "move browser window to this monitor". Is is possible to do it with some AddOn or in some other way?

Hi,

In firefox controle-B does toggle the visibility of the bookmarks toolbar. This is a problem because control B is used to apply bold in many text field and forum like phpBB and this configuration of firefox make it less fun to apply bold style in text fields that are based on ctrl-B to do so. We clearly can do it manually but as we are in XXIth century, a more usable and efficient solution seems worthy. Is there any trick to do so in firefox? I could not find how to change this keyboard shortcut in firefox. Did I miss something?

Hi all,

When I search FF history and click on a link in the library, the link goes to the top of the library and I lose my position in the library.

Is there a setting so I retain my position in the search library. Chrome retains my position.
