In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Hi,

Yesterday Google just disappeared from the available search engines, I did not make any changes to the system as far as I'm aware of. I tried a complete reinstall of firefox (by apt purge and rm -rf ~/.mozilla and then reinstalled using apt) and also followed the instructions in this thread, which did not work for me: [https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questi.../1264497]

Thanks in advance!

Hello. Despite setting the default program for opening PDF to my own application in Settings -> General -> Application, the default program always changes to FireFox after restarting the computer.

How to set the selected program permanently.

Is there one somewhere in [about: ..]? Maybe something in the windows schedule

The Start Page add-on that I was using blocked with the following message. Because the add-on blocked without warning I can't access website links that I bookmarked within said add-on. I understand it was due to security reasons, but that doesn't recover my lost links.

"Speed Dial [FVD] New Tab Page, 3D Start Page, Sync has been blocked for your protection. Why was it blocked?

This add-on violates Mozilla's Add-on Policies.

This add-on violates Mozilla's policies as search functionality provided or loaded by the add-on must not collect search terms or intercept searches that are going to a third-party search provider. The add-on has repeatedly violated these terms despite Mozilla explicitly pointing them out. What does this mean?

The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.

When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.

My icon for Read Aloud has disappeared. I went to the add-ons and then to Read Aloud web site and removed it and then added it to Firefox. It goes through the process and when all done it does not show up in the bar at the top of the screen to click on. I don't know how to find it or where to look for it. I use this extension a great deal. Help me to find it and make it visible.

Lost and dumb founded,

The Home page icon only appears in the tool bar of the page I've designated as the Home Page. As soon as I click a link on that page, the icon disappears. The only way I can get the home page back is the create a new tab/window. Earlier versions of Firefox on other machines in the house don't have this problem. Not acceptable.

Since recent updates trampled on my app preferences, I have changed the setting for pdfs (about:preferences apps) back to "always ask". This works fine for some pdf links, but just gets ignored other times. For example if I click a file:///url/filename.pdf link, Firefox ignores this setting and opens the pdf in the FF pdf viewer.

Obviously, from there I can click the download icon, which brings up the "always ask" dialog so I can open it in my chosen app, but that is a pain, I use a wiki for accessing pdfs constantly.

FF 93.0 64 bit, Win10

Two Issues - checkboxes borked in settings, and i hate the new proton tabs and want to revert to the old tabs

Issue 1: When I open up the firefox settings, I cannot tell in the slightest what is and isn't checked off because nothing appears in the checkboxes. They're just empty squares regardless of whether something is checked off or not. I've attached a screenshot below.

Issue 2: I really, really hate the new proton tabs. I had them disabled by disabling proton, but I guess I forgot to disable auto-updates, because I just opened Firefox to find that they're back, much to my displeasure. It's difficult for me to distinguish tabs from each other at a glance now as they are all the same color with no borders *and* having 'autoplay disabled' and 'playing' and stuff like that in TINY all caps font below the tab label is NOT USEFUL. It is distracting to the eye, and I have to squint and lean closer to be able to read what the heck it's even saying. This is shitty for nearsighted people like me. Moreover, at a glance it is IMPOSSIBLE now to tell which tab sound is coming from. This is a huge step backwards in functionality and accessibility.

I wasn't using mozilla for aesthetics - I was using it because it functioned and was more stable / less of a memory hog in my experience than chrome, and I appreciated the ease and convenience of syncing across different computers as well as the built in password management. However, I question whether I can continue to use this browser if you're going to prioritize aesthetics over functionality and user preference.

Seriously - that the tabs DO NOT CONNECT to the page is itself distracting and weird, *but also* that the rest of the tabs blend together and have extra tiny unreadable text rather than the infinitely more distinguishable audio symbol that indicated which tabs had sound playing before is so terrible.

So.... tl;dr: HOW DO I GET OLD TABS BACK?

At the end of October, the Eno add-on from Capital One credit cards stopped working. This add-on produces single-use credit card numbers connected to my Visa card to help avoid fraud for online purchases. I really like the option but can no longer use it with Firefox. I can only use it with Chrome, and I'd rather not use it there because of their constant tracking.

Please make it work again!

Thank you,

Nicolle

since the recent updates gifs no longer play on google or any other search engine I've checked

Type "about:config" into your address bar, then press "Enter." Look for the line that says "image.animation_mode" and double-click it. Change the mode to "normal" if it isn't already; if it says "once" or "none," animated GIFs will not load correctly.

and I'm set to normal I don't have any security software causing this that I know of how do I get my gif animation back?
