This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

I have been successfully using FireFox for many years, recently we downsized into a Condo,now 81 years young. I have FireFox as my default browser choice, but it only lists Google on the search bar, when I type in my search in the box under the Firefox name it immediately jumps up to the top of the page Google browser.

How do I get back my screen to use FireFox as my search engine ?? I have tried to change it but will only give me two options Google or Google ?? Is it possible to go back to the screen and try and start again??

Many thanks to anyone who will give me info as to how to rectify my problem, be gentle with me as I am efficient in using the computer but less so trying to solve my problems. Robin

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!

I've been using Firefox for a long time, several years, and recently have been accessing some feature that looks like a password manager on my laptop, called Lock <something>--actually I'm not sure what it's called, because I can't seem to bring it up on its own to locate my password info.

I believe in password managers, and I'm trying to move over there, but I've run into a big snag on my mobile Android device... I have no idea how to bring up my Gettr account on my Android because I don't know where the password that I configured for my Gettr account on my laptop is located. I know it's inside the Firefox password manager somewhere... then I see Lockwise is no longer being supported.

Ultimately I want to synch whatever Firefox's latest password manager is to my Android, so that it functions like "whatever Firefox's latest password manager is" for my laptop. I'd like to synch my bookmarks, too. Can anyone point me to some simple instructions? Thanks. I'm using a primary password now for Firefox on my laptop. My email address is ...

I am running Firefox 94.0 in a couple of Linux Mint systems.

My main desktop computer, with a 3.8 GHz 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 processor on an MSI B450-A PRO MAX MB with 16 GB RAM, has had Linux Mint 19.3 installed for over a year. Just today, Firefox, which has also been installed in this OS for a long time, exhibited extreme slowness. I did an online search, and found that the slowness was cured by using the Troubleshoot Mode, but none of the suggestions I found solved the problem in normal mode. So, I went into Settings and turned off hardware acceleration. That solved the problem, somewhat ironically. The hardware acceleration seemed to accomplish deceleration instead. So my browser works, but there is something wrong with hardware acceleration in Firefox.

On a new install of Linux Mint 20.04, I recently experienced frequent crashing of Firefox just after clicking on a link. I tried online solutions, which didn't help, but then I turned off - - guess what - - hardware acceleration, and no more crashes. That is what motivated me to turn off hardware acceleration in Firefox on my Linux Mint 19.3 machine today.

I don't really have a problem to solve, but I don't know of a better place to submit a bug report, so I am hoping you will pass this on to the developers.

My firefox menu bar and menu button on my laptop are actually Google's menus. When i want to change settings i'm dupposed to click on Firefox in the menu bar but it's not there. This is true even when i log into my firefox account. The menu button shows tabs for gmail, contacts; etc. All Google stuff. I have been trying to sync my laptop with my android phone but all the instructions tell me to click on things that aren't there.

I would like to search the bugzilla database for known issues.

While there is a builtin search tool, that does not work: if I search for a string and limit the search to one specific bug where I know it contains the string, then that bug is reported. Doing the same search over all bugs, it (takes long and then) reports that no bug at all contains the string - not even the one where I know it contains the string.

So this search tool is proven defective and cannot be used. What alternatives are there?

Hello I'm working at Imperva which is a security company. One of our product is Web Application Firewall. In this product one of our feature is to identify the application that is used when sending request to a web service. This may help our customer to set FireFox request as legit. One of the attribute that helps us doing it is the request header User Agent. We have found that FireFox which is installed on Ipad generate the following User Agent without the keyword 'firefox' (while Desktop FireFox and IPhone firefox does) Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_4) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.1 Safari/605.1.15 (Note that this User Agent ) Because the User Agent is very similar to Macbook Safari application, we can't classify FireFox on Ipad.

Is there any reason why this is the implementation? Can you update the User Agent in the next version in order the security product will be classify it?

Mozilla has no true feedback page any more, so I chose to post here. I kept the "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" box unchecked since I began to use the Firefox browser (years ago). While I was researching a different issue, I found other users' posts about app.normandy. They all said that it allowed Mozilla to do what Mozilla promised not to do: run studies in violation of users' preference to opt out. Based on what I learned from those posts, I found where app.normandy was in my computer's about:config and toggled it to false. I want to thank those other users for their posts. Mozilla's explanation, also according to those posts, is that "Normandy is a collection of servers, workflows, and Firefox components that enables Mozilla to remote control Firefox clients in the wild based on precise criteria." Aside from whether or not Mozilla should be remote-controlling clients in this way, does it really consider all the diverse places in the world where its users live to be "in the wild?"

Hi, I trust you all had a (well deserved) merry Christmas.

I have a question regarding bookmarks in Firefox. This is something that has been bugging me for some years (yes, it has taken me that long to get around to asking about this). Over the last decade I have amounted a large assortment of bookmarks, which I have carefully structured and also add suitable tags to (as I know what I am likely to search for in future). This works very well for me and it's surprising how my past self has been so accurate at predicting what I may find useful to my present/future self, when it comes to searching for something in my bookmarks.

Herein lies my problem though. I often need to put in a number of tags to make a given web resource findable in the future. For example, I was just reading up about the Google compute module, and have been trying to enter the following tags: Google Edge TPU (Neural compute) sbc network artificial intelligence machine vision intel stick Quantization

This number of keywords is too long, yet I don't want to really remove any of these words/acronyms. Why are the bookmarks so heavily restricted with regards to tags? I see that when I look at the bookmarks, there is also a **keywords** option too, but those words are not searchable, so I don't see much value in placing anything in there.

I am not 100% sure, but I could swear too, that bookmarks used to have a description section too, where I could make notes regarding a weblink (EG: "this website has particularly good recipes for pasta, but ignore their vegatarian options as they don't review very favorably"). I may be thinking of another web browser from a long time ago. Having a description field for each bookmark (which is not restricted to a ridiculously short length like the **Tags** field) would be an excellent idea.

so, to summarize: 1. How do I work around having such a short **Tag** field (and when is Mozilla going to fix this?) 2. Can we please have a Description field for each bookmark. Please!

These are just about my only criticisms of what is otherwise my absolute favorite of browsers. Thanks for the great work and effort by all, and have a prosperous and healthy 2021.
