Blocking designated websites from search results

I recall recently discovering an option that allowed me to designate websites that I no longer wanted to see in my search results. I thought this was x-useful as it seems there are a few websites that frequently appeared near the top of the search results that were "come-ons"; that is when you click on the link in the search results, they only offered an option to "sign up" for access. I don't want to see this junk, and I did add one website to the list.

I've got another one I want to add, but I can't find the interface to add this website to the list. I thought it was a DuckDuckGo feature, but I don't see it anywhere! Is this a Firefox feature ? ... or have I lost my mind  :P

Hi, I'm back to an older computer where I already had Firefox installed. I have it installed and synchronized on 3 other computers and it works perfectly there. My main issue is that in the settings, Firefox is supposed to open with all the tabs I had opened when I closed it. It doesn't... It sends me to the home page. Second issue, also unique: I'm using Duck and go as search engine, and I have the same issue: it doesn's save my preferences (when it does on the same computer with Brave browser) Should I uninstall it all and try again? I already applied all the solutions suggested in th online help pages...

Thanks! Best,

I have a blog/website.

When changing to different sections of the site, everyone (including myself) using firefox are experiencing a white quick flash.

This is not occurring while on chrome nor opera.

I had this issue years ago with ff @ another location.

I found a small script online to add @ the header & it resolved the issue.

can't seem to find it now.

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

Hello - there are add-ons for Amazon, Google, Facebook, EBay and Twitter - none of which I added - showing up on the Firefox browser as running during browser start. I can see them when I use CC Cleaner. They are browser plugins set to run upon start up. I can disable them but need to do it every time, as there is no way to delete them that I can see. I would like to find out why these plugins are there and how I can delete them.


Thanks

Jim

Hi all,

So I am a multi-lingual user and changing input languages regularly by pressing Windows key + Spacebar.

In Firefox, I prefer turning "Smooth scrolling" OFF so the page sort-of jumps at a fixed distance instead "decelerates" when scrolling.

So far so good. But recently I noticed this Windows key + Spacebar combination can change Firefox's scrolling behavior.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Add one more language to Windows (I am using Win10 ... not sure about Win11 though) so that Windows key + Spacebar shows the language selecting popup 2. Turn OFF "Use smooth scrolling" in Firefox settings 3. Find a long webpage to test scrolling -- it should be "jumping" 4. On the same page, make sure Firefox is at focus, press Windows key + Spacebar to show that popup 5. Try scrolling again -- it's now scrolling very "smoothly". To my eyes, it's even much smoother than turning on "Use smooth scrolling" 6. Now click somewhere outside of Firefox(i.e. Taskbar) to lose focus then focus back to Firefox and scroll again, the smoothness is lost ... until switching language again.

I personally found it quite annoying... Is there something I can do to stop it from happening?

Thanks,

J

I am not too good with the computer and have just starting using Firefox. I will do my best to describe my question so please bar with me. I have 2 rows of websites that I frequent...actually only using the first row and 5 spaces in the second row. When I go to a different website Firefox is automatically adding that website to one of the boxes in the second row which I do not want. How do I stop this? Question 2...using Ebay as an example...if I keep searching on Ebay and have looked at lets say 5 different pages how do I go back to the home screen without having to hit the back button 6 times? Thanks for the help. Chuck

Hi:

I tried to set cookie preferences for different websites. For reasons that I do not understand, I cannot move the "slider". I even turned of the existing protection for the websites, but nothing changed. I tried the same with Safari using the same computer and mouse, and I had no problems.

Is this a known bug?

I attached a screen capture. Thanks.

Every time I try to sign into my Google account (including related sites like YouTube), I'm rerouted to the Microsoft sign in page for my old university, and can't log in. This only happens on Firefox, if I switch to another browser then there's no problem.

So far I've tried:

  • Deleting all of my history including my cache and cookies.
  • Once I'm at the site I'm rerouted to, going into History, right-clicking on the url, and clicking "Forget this site."

Neither have worked. Any suggestions appreciated!

Hi: I'm trying to find some way of removing the vertical lines in replies. A previous asking of this same question lead me to attempt to install the 'replywithheader' add-on but it hangs with the "Add ReplyWithHeader? This extension will have permission to: .... Cancel Add" popup box ... It doesn't matter if I click either Cancel or Add, the box just hangs there. Or is there some other way of removing the vertical lines? One might have thought this would be an easily accessible option in the setup.

Thing is that I'm working on a rather long report with other people and we email changes back and forth but each time another vertical line is added. How to nuke ALL the vertical lines? How to stop them from being added in the first place?

Hello,

For several weeks now I've been experiencing issues with accessing google sites. YouTube videos will constantly display the "Connect to the internet. You're offline. Check your connection." error page. Additionally gmail and google drive will constantly give the "OOPs" error message. Sometime the page will load w constant refreshes but this is not ideal.

I've done the following:

Clear history/cookies Opening in troubleshoot mode Disable hardware acceleration Refresh/Reinstall

Have even tried the following articles: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1377868 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1376015

Still getting the same results. Not having any issues with edge/chrome. Does anyone have anything else that could be done?

[Windows] Can't disable displaying "media control" on lock screen even if turned off via advanced settings

Procedure is written on this article: [[Tip] Enable Firefox to Show Media Controls on Windows 10 Lock Screen – AskVG](https://www.askvg.com/tip-enable-firefox-to-show-media-controls-on-windows-10-lock-screen/#:~:text=If%20you%20are%20using%20Windows,enabled%20preference%2Fflag%20to%20False)

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?

when you select text and right click popup "Search google for 'text marked'" , here google is your FF's default search engine, but for people in multi-lingual region would prefer to search e.g. web in the language of the selected text, which makes more sense for the results.

I wonder if FF could add this function, auto detect the text's language and search in e.g. google.de, google.cn or google.fr?

Which is like the macOS lookup, it detect the text language and point to that dictionary?

FF could be a little more intelligent, right?

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks
