I go to Yahoo.com for email several times daily. I rarely go to Youtube.com .

I believe the order that url suggestions (and autocomplete) come up has changed in one of Firefox's updates and now, as soon as I type the "y", Firefox suggests Youtube.com . I go to Yahoo.com a hundred times for any one time I might visit Youtube and Yahoo would come first alphabetically so I would assume it would "suggest" Yahoo before Youtube.

My guess is that Firefox decides on which site is more popular during daily browsing but this was not the case before.

I have tried several methods to attempt to control the order the suggestions appear but Youtube still autocompletes as soon as I type the "y".

Any way to change this to my liking? Or is this just the way it is and will be?

I've attached a screenshot but I edited it to obliterate a few id's and personal information from the example url's.

Every time Firefox updates I have to Re-authenticate every one of my secure websites and the website asked if I want to register this computer. It wouldn't be bad if it wasn't 3 or 4 times per week. Websites that I have to sign in to such as banking, credit cards etc. The last time I asked this question I was sent an email with a link to Thunderbird support. I need browser support.

I would like to create what I call custom popups. If I go to a page, a popup will show my own notes. This may be a reminder about my personal history. It would have to be on my computer only and be triggered when I go to the site. I realize that the real url may be obscured by an app, and I don't know if that can be overcome.

I'm imagining when I go to a particular web page, I will see a reminder, or popup or note with my own comments.

This may already be available, but perhaps I don't know the right questions to ask.

I assume this would only be available on one browser on one computer.

Looking at a product on Amazon (that I've purchased before), it may tell me: "Works like a charm" or "Piece of *"

On a dating site it might remind me when I see one person: "Danger, Will Robinson" or "Try again after Christmas"

A business site might show a note: "Remind owner you met at Halloween bash" or "Express sympathy about loss of pet"

On the App Store it might remind me that an app: "Doesn't work for me" or "This is the one Janet recommends"

Perhaps on a saved document: "Sent on Aug 7 by Robert" or "Still doesn't have the right tone....look again in a week"

And when I am deciding which app to use on my computer: "Great graphic app when rushed, but not powerful" (I would never think that an app named "Moosepow" was for graphics.)

I may even be asking the wrong question. I want reminders that are automatic.

How do I set the new tab homepage and allow entering a new location safely?

The moderators and firefox devs keep suggesting "new tab override" add-on but there is a bug in the UI. When you use that add-on, then press control+T it does NOT highlight or remove the existing address. This means when I type a search, it sends my contents AND "moz-extension://....." which given the uniqueness of that URL is a privacy violation as it seems unique enough to identify me personally.

The behaviour I expect is the same as the default tab, i.e. I press Ctrl+T and then can type directly into the address bar without any existing content.

RANT: I've been using firefox almost 20 years and this is the 1 item that may make me move, not because it's an essential feature but because it shows the total disrespect shown by ignoring and fobbing off of users that obviously want this feature. Removing it was part of a slightly user hostile move to force them to see pocket or other social links.

Users that want this: https://support.mozilla.org/mk/questions/1162532 https://support.mozilla.org/gu-IN/questions/1218838 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1073254 https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1266777 https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/vdy44z/i_cant_get_a_new_tab_to_open_at_google_homepage/

Using the Nightly build with support for the JXL (JPEG XL) image format, I am able to open JXL images. However, the images are severely degraded if the source image is a 32-bit (HDR) image. The highlight values above SDR white are clipped. Effectively, the image is ruined.

So while I can view HDR videos just fine in Firefox using a properly configured HDR monitor (Apple Pro Display XDR), HDR photos do not work.

Does the roadmap for JXL support include plans to support HDR?

I am using a WooCommerce plug that allows for website manipulation via real time CSS changes. I am repeatedly receiving this message, and the browser freezes and has to be reloaded:


DOMException: The quota has been exceeded.

Uncaught DOMException: The quota has been exceeded.


I dont seem to have this issue with other browsers. I would like to keep using FireFox, how do I fix this? Ive already cleared the cache and current settings for memory are at 1 gig... it only buys me some time as eventually the symptoms reappear.

Firefox 103.0.1; extremely slow startup, VAAPI error

//Firefox 103.0.1; Linux 5.10; Debian 11.4.0; xserver-xorg 1:7.7; Nvidia 515.57 driver// After clicking on ->Web Browsing -> Firefox there is NO visible response for 26 seconds... then a normal application window opens and Firefox appears to be operating normally. Opening via command line gives the following "error/information" message(s): glxtest: VA-API test failed, failed to initialize VAAPI connection. For the TWENTY-SIX seconds(!) Firefox is apparently trying to connect to a service that is not available. Is there something in "Settings" or in "about:config" that I can do to skip the "glxtest" and/or other glx VAAPI related configuration options? Or, alternatively, am I missing something in the X-window configuration or another library package that is necessary to support the VA-API feature? The Nvidia driver indicates it is providing "GLX server" version 1.4 . [Troubleshooting information / Share Data attached]

The relatively new computer (running Windows 10) used by a non-admin person keeps asking for admin permission every time there's a firefox update. I have several other workstations with firefox and none of those ask for admin rights to be able to update. No solution found in several internet searches for this problem. I'm about ready to put Chrome on this person's computer so I don't have to go to his desk & enter my admin credentials for just a damn FF update.

In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. Also, I've checked the 2 relevant items in about:config an they are enabled.
