The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

This is on Quantum that I just installed. I can keep installing it but in a few minutes it changes to solid colors once again. I can't relate these changes to any of my actions. It only applies the colors to the tabs and and Bookmarks Tool bar and the Linen theme disappears.

Multiaccount Containers Addon Downloading But Not Appearing In Toolbar in Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

Hello

There is a facility on the new (about 2 years old) BBC sounds "my sounds" app that Firefox is unable to use. The facility is known either as "remember where you are on a programme" or "pick up where you left off on a programme" I am using a Linux PC and a Windows desktop with the same problem on both.

I have checked with the BBC and confirmed that I have the correct settings and cookies enabled, which I am able to change through Firefox, but Firefox can't store how many minutes in I am on a programme, although it can access the same information when that is stored by Internet Explorer. In other words if I listen for 10 minutes to a particular programme on Internet Explorer, then stop and find it on Firefox, Firefox always goes back to that 10 minute spot, no matter how much further I listen. I am in contact with the BBC about this too.

I provide online assistance for a specific group of clients. I am finding myself repeatedly writing almost the exact same paragraphs. Which Add-on would allow me to simply populate a field on a page with the exact text -- I'm hoping to set up 20 or 30 responses that I can just select instead of having to retype everything. Thanks for any guidance.

I would rather not re-write the old IDE's I've been using for years but rather replace them with html/xml web style pages. Konqueror will locally execute binaries with a launcher script. Firefox, Chrome, re-Konq, WebPositive, and IE Explorer will not. If Firefox or SeaMonkey would execute my binaries I could easily replace the old IDE's and save myself and my clients a lot of time and money.

Hi,

I've got hundreds of bookmarks that I finally want to classify. So I opened the Bookmarks->Show All to get to the Library. Now from there I thought that I could just move/drag the bookmarks ... I remember it was possible to do it on previous versions of firefox ? But surprise it doesn't seem to work. I can right click and cut/paste it. Or I can go in Organize and Move... it. For a few bookmarks it would do it, but for HUNDREDS of bookmark that's just not possible. It takes some much clicks and time that I'll probably still be on it next year...

Firefox 10.0.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 - when I add a bookmark the secondary menu (which allows you to choose the location) does not appear. The bookmark is created in the main bookmark "folder". I can manage the bookmark after it is created but this is not very efficient.

Any ideas how to correct this? Thanks in advance.
