Why are there so many Google tools embedded in Firefox? Many of us don't trust Google at all, and in the current environment of increasing surveillance, it seems very strange to find many Google processes in Firefox.

I hate being forced to restart my firefox following an update that I didn't ask for. It's particularly annoying when I'm on a video-conference and I start a search and I'm forced to come back to the conference, wait for them to accept me again, etc...

At a minimum, an option should be offered to disable the restart (I didn't find any).

Thank

Search with ctrl-k no longer works when keyword.enabled = false

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.

Firefox "Save as" file list: Why are folders no longer at top?

I recently changed from Ubuntu Gnome to KDE Plasma. Now, when I'm running Firefox (v83) and click "Save as" to save a file from a web page, Firefox gives me a file list with directories mixed in alphabetically, rather than at the top. This is new behavior to me; I don't know if it's new with v83 (I was previously running v82), or if it's a KDE implementation issue.

Either way, I HATE having to scroll down through page after page of files and folders to find my destination folder. Since the dialog box also incorporates full-row select, I can't even click in the file list and type the first letter of my destination folder.

Please tell me there is a way to change this behavior and have Firefox's "Save as" dialog sort the files with directories at the top!

Thanks.

I had to reinstall Ubuntu 20.04 because I removed vital Python 2 and 3 and it broke. Before doing this I was logged into my Firefox profile and should have had my bookmarks and extensions synced. I do not see any reason why this would not be the case. However, after my reinstall of Ubuntu and logging into Firefox profile all of my bookmarks and extensions are gone. I tried checking around Firefox and it only shows bookmarks and extensions from after my reinstall. I have not performed a backup since I reinstalled Ubuntu, but those bookmarks are there. So I don't understand why I can't find my old bookmarks and extensions from before my Ubuntu issue, because I was logged into my Firefox account. My Firefox account information should have been saved to my account not my computer anyway. Please help me I had a lot of important bookmarks on there, but can't remember all of them.

feature request - rollback recent update with search engine selection after starting typing using the address bar

With respect to this paragraph in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-firefox-address-bar?as=u#w_use-a-different-search

The recent updates are worsening the usability.

Before the update, I used to do the following steps in order to search anything using an alternative search engine:

  1. press CTRL + L to focus the address bar
  2. type my search query
  3. press ALT + ↓ until the desired search engine is selected
  4. press ENTER to submit the query

Now, after the update, an additional step has been introduced

  1. press CTRL + L to focus the address bar
  2. type my search query
  3. press ALT + ↓ until the desired search engine is selected
  4. press ENTER to confirm the selection of the search engine
  5. press ENTER to submit the query

Yeah, it's just a single keypress more, but multiply it by a couple of hundreds times a day I need to do that, and you will get why I'm taking the time to report it.

Please get rid of step 4

Hello,

I use NoScript with the Firefox Nightly channel and default search to DuckDuckGo. Where is the setting for the DuckDuckGo url so that I can direct it to the html page directly rather than wasting all the time and bandwidth of the search, the "You don't have javascript" filler redirect page, then finally the scriptless html page. The standard DuckDuckGo search address is as follows:

https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=help+me

When you have javascript disabled, after all the redirects load, you end up at the address below:

https://html.duckduckgo.com/html/?q=help+me

My laptop is a tad on the old side, so the desktop environment taxes the system pretty heavily. I would therefore like to ask it to do less work for a search.

Hello, I use Microsoft Teams daily and I recently switched to firefox. Everything is great so far except that when I try to login to teams I'm stuck in an endless loop and never succeed to login. I searched and found that it is a cookies issue and I should allow the following cookies:

   [*.]microsoft.com
   [*.]microsoftonline.com
   [*.]teams.skype.com
   [*.]teams.microsoft.com
   [*.]sfbassets.com
   [*.]skypeforbusiness.com

However, this format does not work with firefox and I tried placing a normal URL of each like : https://microsoft.com but it didn't work. So what is the format equivalent in firefox to these to whitelist these cookies

When using Firefox and reading from a popular and very well known online UK news site I am finding some odd things being display half way down the page. This is been occurring for months and is pretty annoying.

I am using a Toshiba Laptop running Linux and my system is up to date.

Is this likely to be a browser issue or a Linux problem? More importantly, how do I go about getting the problem resolved?

TIA.

I tried to login to a site where I had forgotten a password. I got a firefox message offering help. I didn't know about the logins and passwords page. It popped up with hundreds of usernames and passwords from my wife. She doesn't use this computer. She doesn't use firefox. She did use it a few years ago. I just spent over an hour deleting her stuff. She was shocked that I had access to her paypal login and password etc.

Anybody help how I got this data? How are you supposed to protect yourself?
