Hello,

I have 7 or 8 sites I regularly use to purchase books. The problem is,I have to type every single one of them and then head to their search bars and type the same book title over and over again. Is there a way I can place all of them in a group and then have Firefox search only within those sites for the book titles?

Thank you in advance!

Recently the web push notifications got a popup UI that is really disturbing. Show up on all desktops etc., it interrupts me in what I’m doing. I really very strongly dislike this change.

I would like to revert to how it was before (pre-76.0 ? Not sure exactly which version): - notifications get sent to my desktop/OS’s notification center (running OpenSuse + KDE), - no popup is displayed when a notification is triggered.

That way: - notifications will respect the OS « do not disturb » mode, - notifications get shown through a unified UI for all applications, - I can pick how « interrupting » I want each notification to be, - In particular I can focus while on my computer without being interrupted, and poll the notifications occasionally.

Is there a way (maybe a about:config option) to keep notifications but disable the popup behaviour?

When closing Firefox and more than one window is open, I get a warning telling me how many tabs I have open in that window, and asking if I want to continue. If I continue, tabs will be lost.

The warning has two buttons, "Close Tabs" and "Cancel."

If I close FF with File > Exit or Ctrl-Shift-Q, and next time when I open FF, all windows and tabs came back.

The warning above should address this: It should give a third option of Exiting to bring back all windows when FF is started next time. Something like...

I am currently using two separate profiles for Firefox browser - one personal and one for work. I have both open at all times on one machine. When I click on a link from Slack (for work), it always opens in my personal Firefox browser which it usually cannot open since I need to be logged into my work account.

How do I set it up so that the link will open in the profile that was most recently used vs the default profile?

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

How do I restore the original appearance?
