In firefox 77 I could choose different search engine for example duckduckgo as default search engine in private mode. In 78.0.1 this setting is missing, no way to search selected text privately or set different search engine for private mode. Only workaround is to go to about:config and enable "browser.search.separatePrivateDefault.ui.enabled". This fixes both problems. Is this still in beta and not officially available or are my settings wrong?

I want to find and display the location of a single bookmark in the entire bookmark folder. I can search my bookmarks using key words and display the bookmarks with the search terms. However, what I want to know is which bookmark folder the found bookmark is located in. Is there a way to identify that. Thanks.

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

When it became version 78.0.2, the menu to close the tab on the right side was gone and I was very confused. As a result, it was pushed into the submenu. I've been using Firefox because it has a menu to close the tab on the right, but if I can't immediately access this feature, I should consider switching browsers. Please move this menu from sub to main as soon as possible.

I followed the instructions to show image as custom url (thanks), but now my normal home page data doesn't show up. I would like the normal data, favorite sites, article recommendations..., to show up as a clickable overlay over the custom-url-background.

also, pressing c-t nets a second tab, but now it doesn't show the custom background but does show the normal home-screen information. Is there a way to combine the two?

Since updating to 78.0 I cannot download pdf files from magazinelib.com. I can do so on Microsoft Edge and on Android, but not Firefox. I get the save/open/etc. popup; no matter which I click the file simply cycles and never downloads. Other sites seem unaffected. Example: https://psv4.userapi.com/c856436/u527052285/docs/d8/30d700e258ef/Classic_Boat_-_August_2020.pdf?extra=Yvnbe7eap0_wHynxixT-awIpguuucjYxj3XdvQ5_GicbCMyhb5V3RwSqD635Igkv6zb8Vxj1nYOfhKccAX8b-DwtFKKQ-GmSoYMEpu1-Afroli1umCG4JAcT5T8t5u5T_cp8Vo-vRbwhYQ

Hi --

As of the latest version of Firefox (v78.0.2 x64), all new tabs open at the end of the list of current tabs. If I only had a few tabs open, that MIGHT be okay, but since I keep many open, it's incredibly annoying. All I want is to open a new tab and have it appear to the right of the current tab. So far...

  • I've tried setting "browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent" to true, with no effect.
  • I've tried the add-on "Always Right", with no effect.

Since I've noticed this behavior in many previous versions of FF, I doubt that uninstall/reinstall will address the problem, so I didn't try.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance to all!

I suddenly have a problem with Firefox NOT showing certain images (linked ones I think) on various websites. It's not across the board, just about a dozen or so websites.

I briefly got some kind of Webp message that quickly blinked off before I could see what it said. I'm including two screenshots to show the problem I'm having.

Please take me step by step through the process of making this new, wonderful "feature" disappear and never come back. I find the unwanted pop up (pop down, since it shows below the address bar?) annoying, intrusive (I don't want any suggestions unless I ask for them) and sometimes it covers important information.
