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.

Versions blocked: all versions. Blocked on Nov 23, 2021."

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.

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,

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?

I have a text input box that is getting filled with my login name. It hasn't started doing this until the last week or two. I believe FF has updated during that time period. I'm not sure if any extensions have but no new ones have been added.

It's on a forum where you enter someone else's login name to send them a private message. Problem is that my login name is getting put in there and I have to manually erase the field every time I want to post.

I've done an inspect on it and it says "input#whispername.WhisperAutoCompleteInput" and in the box below <input id=WhisperUsername" class="Whisper AutoCOmpleteInput" name="WhisperUsername" type="text" value="" maxlength="20" autocomplete="off">

So I'd like to go back to the previous behavior of not autofilling.

I've got the Windows Greek version of Firefox installed ages ago and now updated to version 94.0.1. Got really excited to see that credit card store and auto-fill has been added as a feature, but according to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill this possibly only available for US/Canadian Firefox owners. Not sure if this holds for build 94 and later though, can someone confirm whether this holds for current builds? I'd love to be able to use this feature!

My settings are depicted.
