Every time I start Firefox with a new profile, despite trying in several ways to make this not happen, Firefox automatically makes a series of requests to URL's and will retry them repeatedly when those requests fail.

``` GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 ... (and so on) ```

I am trying to make this not happen. I'm ideally looking for a setup where Firefox will make no requests at all without me explicitly telling it to but just eliminating the two requests above would be a great start!

Here's what I've tried so far:

1. Uncheck "Provide search suggestions" in `about:preferences#search`

2. I've followed these instructions --- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

2. Here are a combination of select settings from my `user.js` preferences file that I put in to place before opening Firefox in my attempts to stop this. Some of these may or may not be relevant but I'm including them so you have some idea what I've tried: ``` user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled", false) user_pref("browser.search.update", false); user_pref("browser.search.suggest.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled", false); user_pref('browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url', ); user_pref('media.gmp-manager.url', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL', ) user_pref('browser.search.cohort', ); user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.urlbar.suggest.searches", false); ``` Any ideas?

Hi,

I found this problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1060134 . However, the link is broken.

Is there a way to find the number of tabs I have open with the latest edition of Firefox? Per window and overall would both be interesting numbers for me because I have windows by category, sort of.

Keyboard shortcut to change search engine broken? (Ctrl Up/Down)

Some months ago I tried using Firefox Quantum and, even though I found the search bar to be horrible, I remember it was still possible to change the search engine on it using Ctrl+Up/Down, and it made the search bar more tolerable.

Now I decided to give Firefox Quantum another go to see if I could stomach losing so many features that I have on Firefox 56, but it seems that the search bar's Ctrl+Up/Down shortcut is gone, and now the search bar not only is horrible, but useless.

Is there any way of re-enabling this shortcut? I'm using Firefox Developer Edition 67.0b3 (64-bit).


Some clarification:

- I know I can use Ctrl+K to access the search bar and use the arrows to select a search engine, but when I type a search and press Enter, Firefox still uses the default search engine instead of the one highlighted using the arrows.

- I know I can use Ctrl+L to access the address bar and use the arrows to select a search engine, but that is not as nearly as straight-forward as using the search bar, as usually I have to scroll through a lot of suggestions from the address bar to finally get to the search engines. Also, this doens't allow me to see search suggestions from the search engine I choose.

- I know I can create keywords such as "g" for Google, or "d" for DuckDuckGo and use them to search, but I use dozens of search engines and this would not be a reasonable solution.

- Right now the search bar is useless even if I use the mouse: when I click on another search engine, instead of just changing the search provider and allowing me to type the search terms, it opens the search provider's website like it was a shortcut—if I wanted shortcuts I would create and put them on the bookmark toolbar!

Firefox used to have a simple and truly awesome search bar, which I still use on Firefox 56. When Internet Explorer was still the main browser, the feature that most stood out for me on Firefox, besides the tabbed browsing and the extensions, was the flexibility and efficiency of its search bar. Hell, I remember that some of my friends only changed to Firefox because I showed them the search engines that I had submitted to Mycroft Project! What happened to you Firefox? How did you get to this point?

I am trying very hard to use Firefox Quantum and move on from Firefox 56, and the one thing that most drives me crazy is the single row for tabs.

I've tried implementing workarounds with the userChrome.css, such as the one found here: https://github.com/Izheil/Quantum-Nox-Firefox-Dark-Full-Theme/tree/master/Multirow%20and%20other%20functions/Multirow%20tabs — but all my attempts have failed.

Does anyone know of another solution?

It's been horrible using a browser with only one row for tabs. It's very hard to find the tabs I want and to manage my open tabs, even using the menu which shows all of them. I often have no idea of how many tabs I have open, and I often end up with multiple tabs for the same page because I am not aware that it is already open or because it would take too long to find it.

With Firefox 56 and Tab Mix Plus, I usually had around 40 to 50 tabs open most of the time, and when I'm researching stuff this number easily gets to the hundreds for a while. With Firefox Quantum I have been unable to manage my tabs properly: I end up with much more tabs than I really need and it's hard to keep then organized.

I feel like I am struggling to save a marriage that can't be saved. I don't want to leave Firefox, but it's becoming unbearable. Feel free to suggest another browser as a solution to my problem.

I am using Windows 10 and I have recently had two Firefox updates. Following these I am unable to use safe money and therefore on line banking. I have had Kaspersky instructing me to do all sorts of things to no avail, and all I keep getting is safe money is already running.......god only knows where, or error, cannot open in protected window. I have logged out and back in . I have looked at my plugins and all sorts, and followed loads of instructions sending screen shots and doing reports. and still the blooming thing won't work. I have wasted about six hours going round and round in circles and it is causing me a lot of inconvenience, and when you are at work all day using a computer the last thing you want is to come home and have to spend hours trying to rectify something that was working on Saturday. Kaspersky don't seem to know what the problem is, but I am tearing my hair out, and I will now have to go to the bank and sort out what should have taken me about five minutes several days ago. Any help would be so appreciated because I am not the best when it comes to computers but I do try and have a go, but this is driving me up the wall, and because I am at work I only pick up my emails at night, and so the last two nights have been dedicated in trying to resolve this annoying problem that no one seems to be able to rectify. I would be eternally grateful if someone can help me before I have a nervous breakdown. Thank you.

Hi, When I take a screenshot in Firefox Developer Edition (67, mac), "Save visible" > Download, gives me a .png screenshot, whereas "Save full page" > Download, gives me a .jpg screenshot.

Why this inconsistency? I don’t like this functionality being "smart", I just need a screenshot in .png, with and without pictures in the page.

New three-dot button that was added to the addressbar can be tabbed to and has slowed down my productivity.

My usual hotkey combo to search is <ctrl+t> <tab> <type search string> <enter>. I understand I can replace <tab> with <ctrl+e> to access the searchbar, or that I can <tab> twice - I'm just wondering if there's a way to go back to how it was a few days ago, for muscle-memory-sake?

Addressbar buttons are not customizable via the toolbar customize mode.

When I access a web site that requires client certificate - and I have several different ones, including those on hardware tokens - the prompt/popup is malformed. All the certificates are listed HORIZONTALLY, making it impossible to scroll through them and select the correct one. I can walk through the available ones, highlighting them via Up- and Down-arrows, but that does not change the real selection, and the displayed certificate remains to be the first one.

Automatic certificate selection does not work for me, because the site in question requires Email certificate instead of Authentication certificate.

Our company has strict policies on the browser extensions that can be active when accessing company websites. We have a small whitelisted set of extensions that are allowed.

I am using work/personal profiles in Google Chrome and Brave to have a different set of extensions when working. I wonder if something like this could be possible with Firefox containers? It would be so much more convenient compared to separate profiles -- Firefox already allows me to open the company pages in "Work" containers.

My church livestreams its 1100 service. whatever system they use provides streams of different qualities. Access the stream and it starts at HiQ. A text line at the lower left offers Switch to Lower Quality. Click it and it seems to do so and the text line now offers to switch ot Higher Quality. Personally I see little difference in the video.

The problem is with the sound. When it first starts (in the HiQ mode) there is normally sort of a little echo in the sound. Like it was coming from the bottom of a barrel. Click on the video and it pauses ... but the sound continues ... without the echo. Click the video again and the video resumes ... but now there is a measureable gap in the sound. You will hear a phrase and some time later you will hear the phrase again. The gap appears proportional to the amount of time the HiQ video was paused. Switch to LoQ and there is no echo/sound lag.

A friend who knows more about streaming than I says it seems to be playing both sound streams. I haven't found any way to control the two sound streams independently.

This effect is true in both Firefox and Chrome. I work under Windows 10. I borrowed a Macbook. Firefox and Chrome had the same problem on it. Safari, on the other hand, did not have the audio problem.

Also, all of this is true if you go to our website, click the button to go to the live stream, and click in. If, however, you go to our Facebook page, find the link there, and click in, there appears to be no sound problem.

If anyone is interested in witnessing this, good luck, the stream only exists from 1100 AM EDT to 1200 on Sunday mornings. Go to http://effortchurch.org. On the first screen are 4 buttons. The right hand one takes you to the live stream. Click on the picture to start the stream.

If anyone has any suggestions on diagnosing this, I would appreciate hearing them.
