I would like to open a new tab when I open a new link instead of the last page I am on falling behind. The old page should remain and new link/page open separately. Example of what I would like. I open Firefox and my homepage is yahoo. I click on a bookmarked tab to go to youtube it opens in a second tab. I want the first tab to stay open on my home page and a completely new tab open youtube. that makes two open tabs now

In my home network there are several servers whose URLs end with ".lan". For example http://nas.lan or http://router.lan. When I want to connect to these machines with Firefox, I usually type router.lan in the address bar. But then Firefox starts searching for router.lan on google. Afterwards I am asked if I had wanted to access http://router.lan instead and when I click "Yes" Firefox takes me where I actually wanted to go. However, this can get quite annoying over time, and I wonder if it is possible to tell Firefox to go directly to the URL I enter whenever it is a string ending with ".lan" and avoid to search for it? Don't get me wrong, I do not want to disable the search bar completely as I am very used to type in searches into the address bar directly.

There are some browser games that are best played full screen, but I can't seem to find a way to keep the "helpful" menu from popping up over my game when the mouse hits the top edge of the screen. The best I can do is not play full screen, and detach the tab of my game to minimize the amount of tabs visible (and clickable) but there are still these "landmines" on the screen that actively sabotage playing the game without having the handicap of firefox taking over and messing with the screen.

Is there any way to completely disable the popups from a fullscreen mode, show no toolbars, tabs, or anything else (except when exiting fullscreen mode via the keyboard.) I want the mouse to have no interaction with changing the display except for the game itself.

Playing http://slither.io is a good example of what I'm talking about.

Thanks!

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.

I cannot find a way to permanently increase the size of the fonts in the bookmarks toolbar. the fonts are so small I cannot read them. Why has firefox never addressed this issue? There has to be a reasonable way to do this and if not, why not?

And how about being able to change font size throughout the application?

I'm trying to create a DOS batch file to clear the current profile's cache (web site data only, not cookies). I have it working fine using a hard-coded path of the existing profile (I only have one profile), but I'd like it to remain viable in case a newer profile is created for whatever reason. Is there a way to retrieve the path into a variable?

Thank you!
