I'd like to use the Startpage search as my default search in Firefox, instead of Google. And I mean the keyword-less search. I know what a search keyword is and I use several for special search engines (map, Wikipedia, dictionaries, parcel tracking, etc.). But the default search must work without any keywords.

And I want to use the custom settings they provide as URL parameters. I've tried with the cookie option but the cookie expires even after regular use. So the custom URL is the only working solution. Startpage support recommended me doing that.

I know that I can install the Startpage search to Firefox and it worked. But I can't combine it with the custom settings. So I uninstalled the extension, deleted the search engine and went to my custom startpage.com URL. Right-clicking the URL bar allowed me to add the search engine from there. But it also doesn't have my settings.

I couldn't find the search URL in about:config. Where is it stored? I need to change whatever Firefox thinks is Startpage's search URL to include my settings.

Changing the settings is critical because by default they open clicked results in a new tab which I cannot stand. I have enough open tabs, and there's still the back button.

I very frequently open .bib files to get bibliographic information on scientific articles. The by far most convenient way to open these files, which are plain text files, is to just show them as text (either in the same tab, or a new tab). For example if you search for a publication on Google scholar, and click the quotation mark and then BiBTeX, you get the bibliographical information shown as text directly in the browser (see attached screenshot).

However, many other websites and journals instead give you a link to an actual .bib file, instead of just serving up the text. But since a .bib file is just a plain text file, it should be no problem for Firefox to display this text. However, when I go under settings and try to select default actions for .bib files, my only options are to either save the file, or open it with another application (i.e., not Firefox). For other file types, for example .pdf, it works to select Open in Firefox as the default action, but not for .bib files.

Is there a way to fix this problem?

I'm using Firefox 95.0.2 on Mac OS 12.1

Thanks, Tor

I have noticed that some business websites do not work correctly with Firefox. Here are a few ; Lowes Home Improvement, NJ Covid vaccine, Labcorp, Picattiny Federal Credit Union, Clover Health, Walmart.

Could this be due the fact the fact that according java FF does not support the technology behind java?

In the case of Walmart, I was having a problem placing an order and asked for help, the email response did not mention FF.

Most of these website deal with confidential information.

Hello, I have been using Firefox for years without problems, but recently this came about out of the blue: for every action typed into the window, be it a search string or URL, or even about:config, Firefox opens a new window.

I didn't tweak any configuration options, it's not any of the extensions (removed those) nor a theme (using default). Also, this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293906 was not useful.

This is an extremely annoying issue. Please help.

I subscribe to a newsletter published by the International Living Future Institute at www2.living-future.org Every so often (say, once a month) I receive the newsletter through my Comcast email (which I have opened up in Firefox). The email displays only the first of multiple (8, for example) pieces of graphic and textual content. The remaining 7 (for example) pieces are simply blank boxes. The email also contains this statement at the top: "Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser." The latter statement is linked to a page on their site; for example, today's (1/24/2022) email links to: https://www2.living-future.org/webmail/464132/545721684/7dba785a8c809f875afbfe5e3d94f7b4d88f1cccf3e71980921b90a4c1419be8

The foregoing link does not display correctly in Firefox. When I copy the link to my Safari browser, it does display correctly (with all of the boxes of content properly populated). I have experienced this problem for at least a year, and have not encountered such problems with any other site. Your help would be most appreciated. Thank you, Bill Meessen

I used to create desktop shortcuts to websites by dragging the padlock thumbnail to the left of the URL to the desktop. (see first image)

Now it does not create a shortcut but instead creates a file on the desktop with a .URL extension.(see 2nd image) Double clicking on the file will take me to the website, but as a file and not a shortcut, I cannot modify the name displayed or change the icon displayed.

Am I looking at something new in version 96 or have I inadvertantly changed something in the settings?

Good afternoon

Frequently I use this page: https://www.flashscore.com/ in Mozilla Firefox browser.

Earlier when I clicked on the page in this service for example: https://www.flashscore.com/match/CrSqmqeL/#match-summary, it displayed a small size window in browser, because in this way it should be displayed.

Now when I click on the above page, Mozilla displays a normal, large size of the page, what is irritating.

How to fix it ?

The check box 'Ask to save logins and passwords for web sites' keeps unchecking itself. It used to work fine. Now, it doesn't. And consequently, the sub-item 'Autofill logins and passwords' won't work either.

Every time I open the browser to login to a website that has the login details saved, nothing happens. I have to go into settings every time and re-check the main checkbox (i.e. 'Ask to save...') in order to also activate 'Autofill...'.

This is really frustrating and annoying. Why won't the box stay checked? Hope you can come up with an answer. Many thanks.
