I've added several custom search engines to Firefox by right-clicking in a search field, selecting "Add as search engine" and choosing a keyword. Today I wanted to manage the list of search engines I've added in this manner but was unable to find where Firefox keeps the list. It's not in Options as far as I can tell. Any ideas?

Hello: I am traying to go in google.com and I get:

Secure connection failed An error has occurred while connecting to www.google.com.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be displayed because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

It's working fine with other browsers. I just updated today to 79.0 (64 bit). In the same network other people is working fine with same version.

Any help? Rober

Hello Everyone

my question is with respect to the "comment section" below some You Tube videos, such as videos done by Vloggers. The "comment section" never shows up when using Firefox browser on my Lenovo ThinkPad. It will show up if I use Chrome, which I rarely use.

Thank you

I AM A 68 YEAR YOUNG FEMALE, I AM DISABLED, AND PLAY SUPERCITY ON FACEBOOK, IT IS MY ONLY SOURCE OF FRIENDS AND ENTERTAINMENT. SUPERCITY GAME RECENTLY CHANGED FROM ADOBE FLASH TO HTML5 (NOT REALLY SURE WHAT THAT MEANS). BUT I CAN NO LONGER GET INTO THE GAME TO PLAY, AND THEY ONLY GIVE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CHROME BROWSER. I REFUSE TO SWITCH TO THAT BROWSER. I DON'T REALLY KNOW MUCH ABOUT COMPUTERS OR WHAT A FLASH IS OR DOES, OR HTML5 FROM A HOLE IN THE GROUND. I COULD SURE USE SOME HELP PLEASE, IN LAYMANS TERMS, AND LIKE ONE STEP AT A TIME. I AM RUNNING THE NEWEST VERSION OF MODZILLA, NOT EVEN SURE WHERE TO LOOK TO FIND THE VERSION. I RUN WINDOWS 10, PURCHASED AN HP AT COSTCO IN 2018, ITS A DESK TOP. I KNOW HOW TO GET TO INTERNET SETTINGS, AND THATS ABOUT IT. THANKS, CHARI

I dual booted Ubuntu 19.10 in my laptop alongside Windows 10. The videos in my Firefox browser (on Ubuntu) lags in between, it plays smoothly and after sometime it lags. The lagging is not so worse, but still it disturbs me from watching the video. If I play the same video in Windows in Firefox the video plays well. The main problem is with the site ' www.geeksforgeeks.org ' in Ubuntu (Linux) and the same site plays well in Windows Firefox. I have tried fixes like : 1) 'set media.benchmark.vp9.fps = 0' 2) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1245735 but they didn't work.

I did not usemy pc for a while. After about two months, I found out that Firefox account was requesting to log in again. But after logging in, I was surprised to see that all my account passwords had been deleted. Previously, I considered Firefox account and synced passwords to be the safest way, but there is no place left for trust. It is regrettable...

Since upgrading to Firefox 79 many Web pages are noticeably, irritatingly slower: Slow to load, and especially for interactive pages (Javascript, etc), slow to respond. Some are teeth-grindingly, give-up-on-Firefox slow.

I've downgraded twice to Firefox 77 and the slowness went away, but that isn't a choice anymore on my work computer.

Please get rid of whatever "improvements" have ruined version 79 and restore the performance of my preferred browser.

Hi I've been searching for a solution for this problem for quite some time and it is starting to annoy me. Every time I try and search for something instead of using google it switches to yahoo? It didn't do this beforehand. I've seen some solutions on here like doing Ctrl + Shift + a and I've done it but it brings me to a blank tab. It's like whatever it is doesn't want me to remove it. I also tried refreshing Firefox and that didn't help either.

Hi, I have 5 or 6 extensions installed, they continue to disappear from my bar and cannot access them normally (Lastpass is the one that I use the most). I'm not sure what to do. Everytime I refresh Firefox the extensions are viewable for a day or 2, then go away again.

I don'tr know what this would fall under. So I chose other

I cannot use this browser anymore. At first I thought it was web root, because on the options page it said, "this browser is run by this organiztion" or some such crap. and if I click on it, it said webroot.

I CONTROL THIS, I AM THE ORGANIZATION. SO I GOT RID OF WEBROOT.

Once again, when i made FIREFOX THE DEFAULT, IT CHANGES ,MY OTHER DEFAULTS. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE, I DON'T KNOW OF ANYONE WHO WOULD USE A BROWSER THAT DOES THAT. iT CHANGES MY PDF FILES INTO LITTLE ICONS OF FIREFOX AND IT DOESN'T GO TO MY EMAIL WHEN I CLICK AN EMAIL LINK IT GOES TO A BOX. I NEVER SET A THING TO DO THAT. I LOOKED ALL OVER THE SETTINGS, AND I CAN'T TELL WHAT IN THE WORLD WOULD CAUSE IT TO DO THAT. I JUST END UP HAVING TO USE CHROME, WHICH IS LIKE TELLING THE WORLD WHAT YOU ARE DOING; SHAME ON YOU FIREFOX, THIS IS A SCREWY AND VERY BAD THING.

Firefox updated this morning for me, and now my search bar doesn't work (all search engines were cleared) and I can't find Google as an available search engine to add back. Further, when I do get search results from whatever engine I use, when I right click and say open in a new tab, nothing happens. Really scratching my head on this one since I've never had issues like this before.
