After visiting amazon.com once, I find it has placed itself at the top of the Top Sites list in the address bar. How do I remove this unwanted link, while keeping the other ones (which seem to be based on frequency used)?

Have set duckduckgo as default search engine but search just returns duckduckgo main page, not keyword search results when keywords are typed in search bar and hit search. If I revert to bing it shows results as usual. Change back to duckduck and it reverts to just showing duckduck main page again. Any suggestions

Firefox just auto updated for me today and the browser is placing the Facebook Tracker icon right in the center of the page of whatever I'm looking at. It also adds a little 1/4 circle in the upper left corner. It used to be just in the top bar - it doesn't appear there any more. How do I stop this, its super annoying.

Cease calling the latest Android Firefox version an 'update'. It is a downgrade by removing the remarkably useful and frequently used facility to save pages to .pdf.

Then, restore the facility for Android and introduce it in Windows!

Hopefully, yours sincerely

I am having some seriously frustrating issues not only with accessing my toolbar (despite the fact that I went through the rigmoral of learning how to assure that it is always showing in my browser).

I hate it that I have to hover the mouse arrow over the top for even the tabs to show!!! I also hate it that while I am in this current page as well as other pages, I cannot get the startup menu on my computer to come up so that I can access the start menu!!! It's like something is blocking my access to it as long as I am doing anything online!!!

I would greatly appreciate some help here! I can't even access paint without minimizing my browser in order to paste the print screen image I took of this into there in order to share it with you and the image that I take does not show where the mouse arrow is located!!! Also, when I minimize the browser and go to start, I cannot even access paint without doing a stupid cortana search because the only "paint" option that shows up in my startup menu is 3D Paint even though I never even use that! Can anyone please help me with this?

Every time I launch the browser or use it, there's a really consistent yellow border around my window. It is there in fullscreen, windowed and even when I move around the window. I'm sure this is a simple solution, but I can't find anyone else with this issue. Any idea how to get rid of this?

say I am viewing a large code chunk/article and when I read on, I want to keep one part as a reference. How can I do that? Sometimes duplicate page is not an option because access to the page may only be granted once (during a test for example).

thanks!

I am having problems taking youtube video screenshots at the best resolution and using add-ons.

I would like to take screenshots of youtube videos. I have in the past been able to take them by right-clicking on the youtube video (twice) and selecting 'Save Snapshot as...' this works but for some reason it saves at different resolutions. Some save as 1080p and others at 720p...I haven't been able to find a setting so that it always saves at the 1080p setting...

Then I thought I would try a addon that saves a youtube screen shot which I did and on the about:addons page it shows as enabled...but for the life of me I cannot see how to actually use it...no matter where I click I cannot find the icon to click on...the only suggestion I can see in firefox help is how to open the about:addons page which just takes me back to showing that it's enabled...

Please, I would like some help...all I would really like to do is to take single screen shots of youtube vides in as high as resolution as possible...

Hello All,

My browser does not seem to want to fill the screen on startup.

I do not want it to go into "full screen" mode, just to fill the whole screen so I do not have to drag the edges every time. The browser does not seem to remember that it was expanded to fill the whole screen when it closed down.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Screenshot attached.

Regards, Harrison

How to associate custom link types with custom services?

Hello. Firefox's preferences allows us to define the desired associations for each file/link type (PDF files, mailto: links, etc.). But how can I set a custom association?

For example (and just for example), associate RSS feed links (such as https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303676/feed) with a custom service, of which I know the URL pattern to use (like "https://randomRSSservice.com/addnewfeed/%s")?

It seems I can customize the URL pattern for services I already have associated with some link types, such as calendar and mailto, but I can neither add a new service to existing link types nor add a new link/file type (such as RSS feeds in my example). Firefox is all about customization, so I thought this would be one of the things easier to do in Firefox than in other browsers.

Obs.: I know I could install this or that add-on to interact with RSS links, but they all require "read all your data everywhere" permission, and Firefox is also about privacy, so users shouldn't be required to trust strangers (specially developers of non-recommended/non-watched add-ons) to customize the browser, if what makes Firefox special are privacy and customization.

BTW, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file doesn't help at all.
