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?

when I load cnbc.com the home page displays for about 1 second, then the screen goes blank white. I cannot recall making any changes to settings that would affect this and cannot find any setting that corrects it. It works on other browsers and cannot figure out the problem.

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.

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble getting my custom new tab page to be focused when opened (instead of the address bar).

I am currently using the `autoconfig.js` + `mozilla.cfg` approach to overriding the `AboutNewTab.jsm` service with a custom local file. This is working great with the two files containing this code:

autoconfig.js: ``` pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); ```

mozilla.cfg: ``` // Custom firefox config

let { classes:Cc, interfaces:Ci, utils:Cu } = Components;

try {

 Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm");
 let newTabURL = "file:///home/vallode/Documents/test/index.html";
 AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e) { Cu.reportError(e); } ```

I have been attempting to use the `gBrowser` global to add an event listener to the new tab opening, but with no success. Could anyone point me in the right direction for something like this?

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.

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

2 related problems. 1) Lately having difficulty playing vids on Twitter. Sometimes fine, other times they start, then reboot, repeatedly and won't play.

2) I used to see prompts on explore.org for 'pop cam', to create a new window of just the live-cam. This prompt no longer appears in FF. When I open the site in Vivaldi, it appears, as you can see in the screenshot I've attached. Eg., https://explore.org/livecams/africam/olifants-river

I have read through a number of FF articles, tried changing audio/visual permissions, cleared cache. No difference. I have way too many tabs open, though not loaded. I sincerely hope this isn't creating the problem, as my brain is very slow, it takes me a long time to complete things I've been researching. And until very recently, there were still many tabs, without my current problems.

Thanks for your help.
