My default search engine is Duck Duck Go. I frequently use a VPN.

I am usually in North America and want to search sites in North America. When I run a search by typing a search term in Firefox, I get results beginning in UK, and I see that a blue toggle switch has been set to UK. (See image.)

This started 2-3 weeks ago.

How do I set things so that my searches begin in North America?

I have checked "about:config" preferences and do not see anywhere that UK is specified. I don't see a region preference setting, either.

Thank you.

I have just started to encounter Tab Crash errors in FireFox. FireFox usually loads with no problems and runs OK for several minutes, with several Tabs open; but then will start to reprot Tab Crash errors when trying to open new or already open pages. I have tried following the steps on the online support: using latest versions of Firefox and Windows drivers; checked for spyware and malware; opened Firefox in Troubleshooting mode - the errors still occur, even in Troubleshooting mode.

I have one submitted crash report; ID bp-39f08be2-f4d8-486f-87d5-b69ef0240607

very grateful for any help or advice

I was doing some research, and I came across for Firefox BYOB, which was a way to create your own skinned, branded version of firefox for company or personal use.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/images/b/ba/BYOB_pitch-deck_v5.pdf

I went to the site, and it was inactive. I am interested in this because of the fact that adding reactive web apps to the home screen in browsers is not an option on iOS, and I think a solution for this would be to have a specific protocol that can be called in shortcuts to open a reactive web app in a specific mode so as to not break the immersion.

Thank you, please let me know if there are ways to build forked apps.

about:restartrequired Restart to Keep Using Firefox An update to Firefox started in the background. You’ll need to restart to finish the update. Your windows and tabs will be quickly restored, but private ones will not.

For months, Firefox will not load pages, like for google for instance. I will press Enter to load the page and it just won't do anything. Sometimes quitting and restarting fixes the issue, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't my internet, as I often have to open Safari to load the page instead, which always works.

I just did a refresh of Firefox, but the issue persists. It's getting to the point of potentially switching browsers. It's frustrating to have to switch browsers if I need a page to load.

For the last month or so I'm constantly having issues with messaging on Facebook and with playback on Youtube.

On Facebook my messages are often not sending (I sometimes get a red "couldn't send message" tag under the message(s) I've tried to send; other times whatever I've tried to send just disappears without trace); also often my chats do not show up properly and they also don't sync properly with messages on my android phone. (Both my Firefox and my Messenger app are up to date.)

On Youtube I get issues with video playback (I have a premium account on Youtube): the videos sometimes randomly stop mid-playback and they either continue after 5-10 seconds or they just never continue at all. If the video quality is set higher than 1080p this happens more often. Other times the image freezes, but the audio keeps going. When I've watched a video and I press replay/play again, the video and the audio are delayed. I have an 11th gen i5 processor with 16 GB RAM and 250/25 Gb/s internet connection. To my knowledge all drivers are up to date. I've been chatting with Youtube support and they were adamant that I need to change to Chrome browser because this is Firefox's fault...

Also, when I use Facebook or Youtube, Firefox consumes a TON of resources (almost all resources) and makes my laptop run hot.

The only thing I can think of that might be an issue from my side is that I have many (and I mean many) tabs open in Firefox. But even after cleaning all history/cache and restarting Firefox and going straight to Facebook/Youtube, without touching any other tabs, I still have the issues with both - the two pages I use most. It's getting very tiring & annoying.

I'm using AdBlock Plus, but for Youtube it is disabled. (Youtube support wanted me to uninstall it... surprise, surprise...)

I hope you can help me find a way to fix this. Thank you

Windows 10; Firefox 126.0.1; DuckDuckGo search engine:

Drop-down suggestions a clever function, but entirely unwelcome in my universe. How to prohibit those?

The problem in DuckDuckGo search is that one cannot readily edit the original search word/phrase, as the suggestions take over that area; can't do a quick LnUp or LnDn, can't do a quick LeftArrow or RightArrow if a correction is needed -- the suggestions just decide to bully their way in at every inopportune opportunity.

I've changed whatever settings in Duckville that I can find, but it doesn't care what I need or think. I've changed the Firefox Search settings but that doesn't make any difference.

Any information/assistance out there?

Many thanks. Appreciated.

Started a few days ago.

Facebook, from bookmarks or freshly typed, does not like my password. States "password entered is incorrect".

This appears to be the Windows version only (126.0.1(64-bit)), as I can login from other, android, devices. Have not tried from a Linux version as none are current.

I have checked and FF does have the same credentials on each device tried. Attempting to reset password from the Windows version will tell me "something has gone wrong".

Cute, eh?

Hello,

My password saved are deleted every time I close FF. It used to be manageable because Google and other sites didn't require me to fill my passwords (cookies did the trick I suppose) but now I also loose access to gmail and Youtube every time I close FF. It's annoying to have to use 2FA every damn time. And keeping the passwords available.

I've tried every answer I found by looking around :

- tried to start in safe mode - disable hardware acceleration - I have no extensions

FF saves the passwords correctly (at least they appear in the saved password tab) but they are erased every time I restart FF. The cookies aren't automatically deleted (FF remembers my browsing history) but I need to relog into Google.

I getting frustrated.

I keep getting prompted to sign into my Firefox account, but when I type my password and hit enter, the prompt clears out my password and nothing happens. I'm already logged in to post this question, so I'm confused as to why I keep getting prompted.

I've tried:

  1. Numbered list item Removing the account, but the same unresponsive password prompt shows up
  2. Numbered list item Reinstalling, but same issue
  3. Numbered list item Resetting password, but same issue

Potentially related: I am successfully logged into my Firefox account on another laptop, and I'm seeing no prompts there. Any ideas what else to try?

Suddenly my Firefox cannot open saved .htm/.html files on my pc but Edge can. I don't know when this happened but probably during the last month or so. When I try to open a saved .htm or .html file Win10 gives me a "Windows cannot find (path and file name)" error. If I "OPEN WITH" Edge it works just fine. I've checked my default apps and file type associations and they are all properly set to Firefox. I did a RESTART in Firefox but that was no help. Is this actually a Windows problem, or do I need to do a complete uninstall and reinstall of Firefox? Currently running Win10 (64-bit) and Firefox 126.0.1 (64-bit).
