Repeating "Welcome back" popup when starting Firefox

I have just upgraded to Firefox version 123. Now whenever I start Firefox on any of my profiles, it will immediately or almost immediately display a "Welcome back" popup stating that "Here’s a quick reminder that you can keep your favorite indie browser just one click away." and provides a button to make the browser the default one. That's exceedingly annoying - I can understand that Firefox wants to notify my once in a while, but this happens at least once a day, probably more often than that. I looked over the source code and got that it is a "spotlight" feature, but I failed to find any settings that would turn it off. Any idea how can I disable this forever?

I have Yahoo as my home page and usually search from it starting out. I noticed, however, after the last update or two in the last week that when I hit search, it opens the search results in a new tab. It didn't use to do this, but I can't find any Firefox option to make the searches stay in the existing tab. Can anyone help with this? I don't think it's Yahoo's settings, because I'm not signed into it. It seems like the Firefox update created this new behavior.

When opening a second FF browser window, the cursor does not default to the search box, I have to place it there manually, or change the way I open the extra browser windows

When opening a second FF browser window, the cursor does default to being active for input in the search box, I have to place it there manually by mouse click, or change the way I open the 2nd browser window. Let me explain.... I have noticed for a while now that the cursor active position in 2nd, 3rd, and more additional FF browser windows is not placed inside the search box, middle of the page, so when I start typing nothing happens. I have to manually move it to the search box and click it in there, with the mouse. Mildly frustrating? I tried searching on here for some info on why it only happens on extra opened FF windows. Found something about it moving to the URL address bar, but the chosen solution did nothing for my "extra browser windows, cursor not in search box" problem. I am on a Win10 laptop, fully up to date software, and am using FF also fully up to date. Some FF add ons, but I don't think they're the problem, because I've had them installed forever, and this problem seems to be a more recent irritant. Couple of months, at least. So, after doing some testing and trying some modifications in "about:config" parameters cursor/search/tab/windows with no luck, I stumbled on a work around. I have my chosen browsers (and some other apps) pinned to the Windows taskbar for quick access. To start my first FF window, I click the FF icon that's pinned to the taskbar. It starts, and the cursor is active/focued inside the search box, which is what I expect and desire. Now, if I start a second browser window by right clicking the pinned FF taskbar icon, and start a new window by clicking "Open new window", when the window opens, and I start typing (expecting the cursor to be focused inside the search box), nothing happens, no typing input, and I have to stop, and manually click inisde the search box to get the cursor in there, and functional. What I discovered from my casual testing is, if I start a second browser window by right clicking the pinned taskbar FF icon, and select the "Firefox" option to open a new FF browser window, when the new FF window opens, the cursor IS focused and functional inside the search box. I can start typing immediately and the text appears inside the main search box, as expected and desired. I have no idea why the cursor works when I start secondary FF browser windows using the "Firefox" option versus the "Open new window" option when I right click the pinned FF taskbar icon, but it works the way I want it to work which is put the cursor inside the search box middle of the page. Maybe it's "functioning as designed", I don't know. Maybe the FF developer braintrust can figure out why the 2 methods of opening subsequent FF windows produce a different functionality for the placement and input capability of the cursor? I'm just posting this up so that if anyone else is getting frustrated with the "lost cursor in the search box" problem, maybe try starting extra FF windows using the "Firefox" option if you start them by right clicking a pinned FF taskbar icon, like I do. Just thought I'd post it up, as it all struck me as odd, but the work around is simple. :)

Say, for example, I want the download path to be "MyDownloadDirectory/%yyyy/%yyyy.%mm" which means "Change the download path every month to a folder named after the current year and the current month inside a folder named after the current year".

Many non-browser applications allow me to do this, but for some reason browsers generally don't have that option. I was thinking that there was a way to do this in Firefox.

What is a way to do this? If it's not possible in vanilla Firefox, is there an extension available for this?

First and most important I want to thank FredMcD and cor-el. Your input got me "going" again.

E-mail is the more important issue at this point. I use Gmail and have for years, and right now I have to go through their awkward login procedure every time I start Firefox. In Safari, which I want to leave behind, I just click on mail and I'm in. Can I setup this situation in Firefox?

My history only shows "Today", "Yesterday", "Last 7 days". I don't want to show a ton of history, but I would like to show 14 days. In some of the help articles I see far more history than that. Is there any way I can push history to 14 days?

Help would be greatly appreciated as I'm 78 and weak on technology, chubbles

Recently there was a change how Firefox behaves regarding the recent downloads pop-up menu.

Up until 98.0 if I downloaded an item, the "Download" icon showed that there is a new downloaded item (it became "active", recolored to blue, so just like a nofiication icon), and If I clicked on the "Download" icon (down arrow), than it showed (a small pop-up below the download icon) the 3 recent items that were downloaded.

In 98.0 this was changed.

Now if I download an item, the recent downloaded pop-up list becomes active, and shows the recent items. So if I control the page with keyboard, I have to move back to the page, because now the keyboard input is controlling that small pop-up recent downloads.

If I download an item, just recolor/notify the download icon to blue showing that there is a new item, DON'T show me the recent downloads, and DON'T make that pop-up active, because I use mostly keyboard, and it is hard to control the page with keyboard presses, when that pop-up comes up.

I want the recent download pop-up functionality as it was before 98.0.

How do I change this behavior back? How do I turn off to NOT open the recent downloads pop-up automatically after each download?

Since version 98 this new entry has appeared right at the top of the downloads right click context menu.

It's really annoying, 1) because it is right at the top - so it's always the first thing you're accidentally likely to select 2) because it exists at all. There is already a way to select to always open file certain types. There's no need to have this thrust in peoples' faces every time they right click a downloaded item.

Please provide a (simple) way to remove it and/or at least put it lower down the right click context menu. Thank you.

Fist I would like to participate with Firefox more - I want to become more a part of the community - and add in my consultant expertise Next I would like to suggest several things, but today just one - your Updates

I cannot take this anymore. Every couple weeks there is some update, and it is unacceptable - it disrupts my life. I do not want to restart my computer, I have dozens of documents and files open that I am working on, and this interferes with my daily routines, and as a top activist in your circle u are not yet aware of... its KIND OF important!

Straight up a vast majority of these updates should be released in 'packs' around the start of the month, and then I will not mind, but every couple weeks and the icon to download pops up continuously and then restarts my computer by force - that is MSN bully actions - like come on team... it is annoying as hell!

It's gotta change as it is even more annoying than bookmarks being saved on my home page in the top spots - blank is better than something that is not needed there - the Firefox browser home is a VERY important organizational tool for your members AND is your 'face' to the world that u are not using even at par to help your success.

As for other suggestions I would like to help in the future. Especially when it comes to you guys asking for with emails to get operational capital - I want to help - so I have sent letters in response and received no answers! If the Capitalist Elite will collapse the economy to repurchase everything back at half price, during that time many entities that receive public funding will no longer survive, as the public will be in bread lines.

The time to evolve your community has arrived... contact me for the next levels...
