Per title and attached image.

Why do I no longer have the option to view image in the same tab any more? I should not need a browser extension to have brought it back. This new feature is, frankly, rather annoying and I would like to have the option to have it back. Please don't tell me to modify userChrome.css because that doesn't seem to do anything anymore. I have tried on numerous occasions to use it to get rid of the obnoxious Email Image by following markup examples given on numerous forums, so I don't trust it to bring back a feature unjustly stripped from me.

Or, failing that, tell me how to get that context to open in the background. I have that option set for links, and am rather unhappy that it is ignored on this new image context and bookmarks to a lesser extent.

It has been a day since updating to this new version, and I hate it already.

When I open a first Firefox instance from taskbar in Windows 10, if I do a Google search then right click on any of the results, then select "Open Link in New Tab", FF lalways opens that link in a new window, not a new tab as requested. The new window takes up the right hand half of my display which means I have to manually size it larger or maximize it. This behavior continues as long as I use the first FF window to open any links - they never open in a tab of the original window and only create lots of windows - this is very hard to deal with IMHO. Now here's the weird part - If I use one of the new windows, then FF behaves just as it should. Do a Google search and all links can be opened in new tabs in the new window, as requested. I did not notice this strange behavior until about April 10 when I believe I accepted a new update to FF.

The entry point is here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox after clicking on Help Articles > Firefox which sends you to. Frequent Help Topics. Select something there to be able to access the Knowledge Base to find an answer yourself.

Then if you can't find a suitable answer you will have the opportunity to Ask a question."

NOPE. SEE IMAGES.

I had to google it. And for the record the advice above was useless even after following the ---> "Frequent Help Topics. Select something there to be able to access the Knowledge Base to find an answer yourself." advice.

GEEEEZ NO I can waste more of my time figuring out why YouTYube Comment replies don't load, Firefox doesn't open new pages in tabs (despite being set to) and why this browser won't even quit.?

I used to use Firefox for a decade plus but stopped because it became a buggy useless piece fo software.

Something broke in my browser. For last day or two whenever I try to open an image to see it in full details etc, it instead opens new tab. Then I realized that description of this basic option changed to what it does now, as well, so I assume this is some sort of new feature.

How do I revert it? Do I need some sort of plugin? If yes, is there plugin that outright replaces this new, worse functionality with old, better one? If not, can someone message me when such plugin exists?

Hi,

Straight to the point,

I live in Colombia, the search suggestions that come up when using the default Google search engine on Firefox are on Spanish and are all related to the country.

This does not happen when I search normally on Google.com. I already set the search results on Google.com to another region, and the language to English.

It seems to me, the problem is the default Google search engine on Firefox, since this does not happen when I use the Bing search engine.

I would like to keep Google as my search engine and search suggestions on, Is it possible to set it so that the search suggestions that show up on the address bar are from another region, more specifically, the US?

Thank you.

Lately: these issues have popped up. I have all the FF updates. 1. I keep getting Crash Reports (never had thee before) 2. My passwords are not saved and I have to continually re-enter, esp. on Twitter and IG 3. When I close my computer to Sleep, Windows keeps asking me to Update and Restart.

   When I do, it goes through the process and then says Windows could not Update and 
    is undoing the changes. Is it a conflict with FF?
    I have the Avast Secure Browser and their Support said I can uninstall it and it would
    not take away anything on my FF browser. True?

Thanks for any and all your help.

Amazon Music suddenly won't play/started crashing. A yellow bar comes up on top of the screen saying The Widevinecdm has crashed. It was running fine until yesterday and I can't think of any changes I've made. Or did I update Firefox, it's so automatic I don't remember. I'm running OS 10.9.5 on an older Macbook Pro with Firefox 78.10. Thanks.

I am an old fart (76) and had firefox reasonably set up and nor this tired old brain must remember how it was and how to jump through the hoops that the juveniles thought as better... Give me a break !! the complaint I had which I found a workaround was to DELETE up to 1G of cookies so I had a little usable ram and space on my HDD... Some of the cookies were HUGE... My OS has been Linux mint or other flavours of Linux since about 1990 and used to boot in less than 20 seconds, then it would load the previous days applications where I left off in another 10 seconds... Now, judging by the sixes of the files downloaded to refresh Firefox you are writing BLOATWARE WTF... Why do you think I would not touch Intel & windoze? DAZE of compulsory Amerikan speling & corporate spying are numbered if this keeps deteriorating... 20,000 cookies a day? and how big is the file to install firefox... That is what I call BLOATWARE...

I watch informative YT but when it gets boringly repetitive I just scan what is force fed in the vain hope I will spot something of interest... 90% is crap, or dumb'ed down BS to find a few paste jewels...

My brain is somewhat addled with Dementia, and afflicted with aspects of Asperger's Syndrome, Bi polar disorder... Give me a break Please...
