I set winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. Firefox doesn't appear in the task manager startup programs list. There is no link to firefox in the startup folder. Nevertheless, firefox runs itself when I log on. How can I make it stop?

This might be a stupid question and I'm shocked that I noticed this only now as a long time Firefox user... If I use the location bar to search for something Firefox opens the Google result page, but disables the "back"-button. So I can't get back to the page I've been visiting before. I've been wondering for a long time why sometimes clicking back doesn't lead me back to a page I know I was visiting earlier, now I finally figured out that this is because I was using the search from location bar. So my question: Is this the normal behavior or a bug in my installation? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

I use my bookmarks to keep track of fanfiction I want to read on archiveofourown.org. The site features a 'history' section itself. Recently I noticed that stories I've bookmarked say that I've visited them way more than I have. The 'How many times you've visited this page' ranges between 30 and 500 times for each story, when I've only actually clicked on them once myself as I bookmarked them. Is firefox constantly opening/pinging my bookmarks and is that what is being reflected on archiveofourown.org?

Thanks!

I'm using 78.0.2 (64-bit) Firefox on Mac OS and using a windows keyboard. Since most commands use cmd key and not ctrl key, it's a bit awkward on my current keyboard. Also, my mouse buttons which are programmed to go back don't work in Firefox. They work in chrome. Where do I access keybinding settings and how can I modify them? Thanks.

    Up until the release of 78.0.1, I have been deleting items from the address bar by highlighting the item and then holding the Shift key and tapping Delete. This doesn't work now, much like when it changed from just hitting the Delete key, so what is the process for deleting specific items from the address bar now? The Help pages are no help because they still say to do the Shift+Delete way.

    It seems most answers to this question tell you to clear browsing data and the autofill entries. That's not what I want.

    Say you have a form that contains previous data, whether manually entered or autofilled. You want to use autofill for the entire form, but by default it doesn't overwrite fields with entries. How do I clear the form and start fresh so autofill can do its job?

    What command line option(s) should I use to open several URLs as tabs in a NEW private browsing window. So, if a private browsing window is already open, a new window should be opened.

    I've checked https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options /quote -private-window URL Open URL in a new private browsing window. If a private browsing window is already open, a new tab is opened in the existing window. /unquote Why can one open new private windows pressing ctrl-shft-P, and apparently not in a command line ?

    Hello.

    I have a question. In which folder is my Firefox browsing history stored, please?

    I ask because I want to create a kind of "browsing diary", and tried to export my browsing history via Mozilla History View. But it couldn't find the folder with my browsing history.

    I'm working from a WINDOWS 7 64 Bit computer, and my Firefox version is Firefox 74.0 64 Bit. With those specifications, where do I look for the folder with my browsing history?

    Thanks in advance for any answers, and have a great Sunday!

    I really would like to able to keep the results of sorting bookmarks.

    So why is that so hard If you want to keep an old sort order, then you need to keep an index by old pointer and have a mode to revert.

    But when I try to look thru 50 bookmarks for a particular one, it is so nice to see them in alphabetic order.

    When I save a photo to my desktop or folder from a page using Firefox, it does not display the photo Thumbnail, only the generic photo icon. A thumbnail does show when I download from another browser as Chrome, just not from Firefox. It must be a setting, but I can not find it. I had Firefox on a previous laptop and never had this problem. How can I get photo Thumbnails to display on photos downloaded from a page when using Firefox?
