I don't want to update my firefox. I was able to disable automatic updates. But the popup keeps coming once in a while. I need to get rid of that popup somehow.

Please let me know if there is a way to disable it other than collapsing NAV Bar.

If I set my home page to "blank" in Firefox settings, it defaults to a blank white page. How do I change the color of this page?

Setting background color in the "appearance" section has no effect for me.

I'm on linux if it matters.

Possibly a question that has been asked before or could be extracted from the shortcuts page, but wording of the problem probably varies quite a bit.

In the address bar, when I want to go in one click to the first result that is not a search suggestion, is there a way to accomplish that (instead of arrow down for x amount of times)? A subpar alternative would then be to disable search suggestions of course.

A few minutes ago I had this error, I searched all over the internet but nobody gave a concrete solution.

I tried everything: clear cookies, reset firefox, etc.

The only person who gave a solution was to restore windows in a clean installation.

It turns out that for a rare reason my computer woke up with the time misconfigured, I configured it and tried to access some files that I had in google drive, but it showed that error and it had been trying to solve it for 2 hours. Well, it turns out that I had set the time wrong and instead of putting "AM" I put "PM" that is to say, it was 12 hours apart.

I configured everything again and with the correct time and that solved the problem, I hope someone will use this information.

I recently moved from the US to the UK. I now have an amazon.co.uk account and every time I type ama... I instinctively hit ENTER and I'm on the amazon.com site and buying stuff I have to ship across the ocean.

I tried the trick of hitting SHIFT-DEL for the amazon.com listing in search results but no matter how many times I've removed it (and it does disappear) it still suggests amazon.com

This happen for other sites as well that I have switched accounts.

Is there any way to solve this?

I know how to create shortcuts, but what I am trying to do is create shortcuts on my Firefox home page. With Chrome I think I click on Add Shortcut, type in a name and below it the web URL. Takes a few seconds. So many of the results I get for Firefox are years old, very old versions of Firefox. My Firefox is the latest version. It can't be this difficult. Two clicks and a little typing and Chrome adds one.

Hello,

I recently was forced to change the address of my blog from "universalism.com.au" to "universalism-au.com" (due to silly legal requirements introduced a few months back about requiring an ABN if you want to use the .au suffix).

"universalism.com.au" is now a dead link, but when I start typing "uni..." in the address bar, it always autocompletes to this old and depreciated url rather than my new one. I would like to be able to type "uni..." and have it autocomplete to the new address, "universalism-au.com"

I have cleared what seems relevant from my browsing history, but no luck. Is this perhaps being caused by my default search engine (duckduckgo) recommending the wrong address?

I have attached a screenshot if this helps.

There are 2 ways to copy-paste in Linux. The traditional ctrl+c/ctrl+v, which copies the selection to clipboard. There is another way that automatically copies the selected text to X primary register (without pressing any other buttons).

The second mode (copying to X primary), no longer works for me. How can I fix it? (The feature works on other GTK apps)
