I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.

I cannot log into aa.com (American Airlines) with Firefox but Chrome works fine. Error message that their site is down for maintenance but it is up and working just fine with other browsers.

I have cleared cache, cookies, history, etc. HTTPS always is not enabled. Firefox is at the latest version. I have restarted the browser.

Any thoughts?

Basically whenever I restore pages with Ctrl+Shift+T into a Google associated website it logs me out from my google account. This is supper annoying, but I don't know if this is a Google problem or Firefox has some weird bug. This happens to me mostly on Youtube and Gmail when I close the page do the page restore keybind and then I happen to be logged out even if I was logged in. Also I have multiple Google accounts and it logs all of them out when this happens :(

Not gonna share data because I don't think it will help. And I have some fear it will get stolen and used maliciously :\

'Release 96.0.1 Does Not Work with Our Ariba PunchOut Catalogs' Users can punchout and add items to the Shopping Carts, but when they try to return the items from the cart back to our local Ariba Application, users receive a "Token Expired" error. When they click the button to return to the Ariba application, there are no items in the requisition.

We experienced the same issue when Chrome released version 80 in February of 2020. We have been recommending Firefox as the preferred browser but now it has the same problem.

Can you provide some way for users to run an older version of Firefox? Version 95.0.2 Works great. I have not upgraded to 96 yet due to this issue. However, many campus users have already installed 96.0.1.

Currently in our environment, only Inernet Explorer or EDGE running in IE mode work with our Ariba Application. Should we advise our campus users stop using Firefox now?

Hello there !!!

Today I had serious damage to my Mozilla Firefox. When I started up Firefox I realized that I lost all my opened tabs on all my (three) opened windows, although I had checked the box "Restore previous sessions" in the settings section.

I opened "settings" and I saw this box unchecked !!!!!

The unfortunate event of this failure is that I restarted Firefox and even worse I restarted the PC.

Now I wonder, after all these, if there is a way to restore all my lost TABs that, I believe, there are hidden somewhere...

My Firefox browser recently upgraded to 96.0.1 (64bit) and since then I have noticed that the background on when doing google searches and when watching Youtube is in dark theme. Altering to the light theme in Firefox settings has no effect and I have tried all the suggestions without success.

I did find that by removing the theme Unicorn Fantasy by M♥Donna and installing a light grey theme this forced google and youtube into there light theme. I have also tried installing other themes and these also seem to cause the dark mode.

I would assume it is a problem caused by the latest Firefox update as google and youtube had the normal white background before this. It's not a massive problem, just annoying and makes little difficult to use


Anyone know how to get round this ?

I have reinstalled my home computer and reinstalled Firefox, logged in and synced. My passwords from my work browser's Lockwise have not appeared or synced. Please advise. Thank you.

I know patience is thin. Feel free to cut to the chase. I did try to self serve and only found export then import options. Are my expectations for sync incorrect?

Happy New Year.
