I just upgraded to Monterey on my Mac running FF 101.0.1 (64-bit). I cannot add new search engines to my list of search engines. I'm trying to add DuckDuckGo without success. I have Google, Bing and Startpage. I click on Find More Search Engines, select and add DuckDuckGo but while it appears as an extension it does not appear in the list of search engines.

Hello,

i have a problem with a personal webextensions, that i have written for my personal use. I add a new protocol in windows 10 pe registry (player://) and use this to start a special windows script.

My extensions put an new menu-entry on right click and rewrite the url from the tab with the the protocol (play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample).

Now he does nothing in the newest versions of Firefox. I use

browser.tabs.update({url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"});

and nothing happends. The tab.url says www.youtube.com, but nothing happends. But when i call

function updateFirstTab(tabs) { var updating = browser.tabs.update(tabs.id, { // active: true, // loadReplace: true, url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"}); updating.then(onUpdated, onError); }

var querying = browser.tabs.query({currentWindow:true}); querying.then(updateFirstTab, onError);

and then an:

browser.tabs.create({

   		url:"https://example.org"
 		});

He loads the protocol page and the new created example.org page.

When i use tabs.create he call the protocol, like my old tabs.update code.

Is that an security change? But why tabs.update functioned when i call a tabs.create after it? When i must use tabs.create how can i seamlessly close the newly created tab after call the protocol?

I hope it is a bug in web extension;), why my code has functioned with the tabs.update() so many firefox version along.

thx

When opening a new tab from my Yahoo homepage, I would automatically see a page with buttons at the top of my most commonly used websites---amazon, my email, my bank, etc.

Below those buttons would be links to about a dozen feature-length articles (each link had an image and brief description of the article) from different online news and magazine sources (WAPO, NY Times, New Yorker, Esquire, Vox, etc.) These articles were feature articles and not ads, and they varied in length.

Someone was working on updating my Windows 10 and now I can't access that page. I don't have a name for that page but I do miss it. How can I access that page again?

The new version 89.0.1 forces Google to search in the address bar. I dont like it. I cant read it. The results are not what I'm looking for. I want to retain old Home and ditto new Tabs with Google and Often-used 'favorites'. I cant disable it for Home or new tabs and I wish to keep my old home screen as it was and tuned to my taste.

Why the change without options to keep?

thanx

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.

Telling me how to restore it and how to make avoid it happens again. The enclosed picture shows the effect. The blank space is as if it was transparent, as I can click on objects behind them (although I cannot see them, as the blank space is not transparent). It is really a nuance. Are there any shortcuts from keyboard to restore it? Most solutions I read do not work as they say things like "click that button in the menu, or toolbar, or so" but they are simply not there!!!! Thanks for the attention. G

Hi. I was wondering if there's any way to change the shape of shortcuts like Chrome (Square to circle). I mentioned two images. Unfortunately, MaterialFox's theme could not help me and there weren't similar themes or extensions.

And I don't want shortcuts become bigger/highlighted like 3rd image, when I hold the cursor on them.

Thanks and sorry for my bad English! :)

I am trying to download a spreadsheet file which has a .xlsx extension. Firefox insists on downloading the file (my default action) but I want to be given the option to open in my spreadsheet program (Libreoffice).

Looking in Settings and scrolling down to Files and Applications -> Applications, there are other spreadsheet formats present but not one for .xlsx. How do I add the "Always Ask" option for .xlsx files?

Libreoffice is the default system application for opening these files.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm running 101.0.1 and spell check no longer works on any mail app like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, BT Mail. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly. This is despite my Firefox Settings being as below.....

Language Choose the languages used to display menus, messages, and notifications from Firefox. ENGLISH GB Set Alternatives… ENGLISH GB Choose your preferred language for displaying pages. Choose… ENGLISH (United Kingdom) (en-gb) Check your spelling as you type = Tick (Yes)

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

Neil.

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.

Good day everyone,

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Thanks

Hello again:

I just asked the question about the panel to the left of the left panel...

My reason for wanting to remove this new 'panel' is because I can not see the full text of my emails now unless I close the Left Panel.

I do have a wide computer monitor... never had a problem viewing my emails until FF installed the upgrade to 84.0.1.

Thanks
