Hi,

is there a way how i can let firefox open a link in new tab from command line for specified profile? Ideally in a way in which it doesn't matter, whether firefox is already running or not

I know I can do something like: firefox --new-tab 'https://www.google.com' this works no matter whether firefox is already running (just add new tab) or it's not (open firefox and add tab)

But what I want to achieve is something like this: firefox -P myProfile --new-tab 'https://www.google.com where myProfile is existing profile.

This works unless firefox is running with that profile (opens new instance). But if it's already running i get the error message (Firefox is already running but it's not responding. To use firefox you must first close the existing firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile). I tried it with/without --no-remote options but it didn't help

I want this for a script that should open pages automatically but not in the default profile. And it should be able to work even if the profile is already running.

Thanks for any advice, Jaymes

I'm trying to keep the default as links open in the same tab, rather than a new tab or new window. I've tried Search Settings<where <="" about:config.="" and="" browser.search.openintab="false" browser.tabs.loadbookmarksintabs="false" browser.urlbar.openintab="false" configuration="" gone="" i've="" into="" is:="" my="" open,="" p="" results=""></where>

Links keep opening in a new tab, and the "Open results in new tab" slider at the top of the page is always on by default (I can turn it off, but the next time I open a new tab, it's on again by default).

Thanks!

With 81, i select Microsoft Print to pdf or Adobe PDF printer, then it either simply reverts to the webpage or for a moment brings up the directory selection and file naming window, which then disappears within a second, and i am back to the original webpage.

I reverted to FF 80, both Print to PDF printers worked perfectly.

I allowed the upgrade to 81, once again, same failures.

I re-installed Firefox to begin using it as my main Web Browser and the icon in the taskbar is a white sheet of paper and I'd like the Fox icon. It took me a while to configure Firefox with all my imported bookmarks, etc. so I'd like to find a fix without deleting and re-installing the software. Was thinking/hoping the icon could be copied/placed in the root directory of the software?

When going into a folder in the library and I sort by date, for example, it selects the first item and then sort, which means I'm now somewhere in the middle of the whole folder. I believe to have seen a config entry somewhere to get rid of this nonsense behavior, but can't seem to find it.

Anyone an idea?

Background: Whenever I open YouTube, I want it in a dedicated container. Initially, I opened it in my Personal Container, and assigned YouTube.com to open in it. However, I'm stuck in a loop with YouTube being assigned to my Personal Container now.

What's Wrong After that initial assignment to my Personal Container, I later realized that I could create a dedicated container for YouTube, so I created a YouTube Container.

To switch YouTube to open in my dedicated YouTube container, I browsed to www.youtube.com, right clicked the tab, and re-open in Container - selected YouTube. It prompted me to confirm, I clicked the "remember my decision" checkbox and the open in YouTube Container. YouTube successfully opens in my YouTube container.

However, it never remembers my decision - it always prompts me to confirm the current container (which may be no container at all) or the Personal Container. In fact when*ever* I click a YouTube link, it asks me to confirm.

It feels like YouTube is "stuck" in the personal container, and I can't get it out of this loop.

I've tried to look for docs, but I haven't found any that address my issue. Also, isn't there a way to edit assignments manually using a listing of sites and the containers they're assigned?

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!! - David

Hi, my Twitter feed is no longer refreshing when I hit the Twitter home button or refresh on the browser. Instead I have to hit "Show tweets" to load all new Tweets. So this is now a two step process. This is not an issue in Chrome. In an attempt to resolve, I have cleared all cookies, restarted browser and computer. When that didn't work I tried to refresh Firefox, restarted and that didn't work either. Any help is appreciated.

Hello Everyone, I now have TWO computers that automatically updated Firefox ESR from 68.12.0 to 78.3.0. I now cannot logon to a Networkwork Solutions webmail account that I have used for years. The message says to change my settings to allow cookies. Thinking that the update may have changed a security cookie setting, I have tried multiple configurations. The standard Firefox settings have worked fine for years until the update. So far I can still access the account with both Opera and Brave, I have not yet tried Chrome. What has changed? Thanks.

Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!

I am using Firefox 81.0 on Windows 10, www.google.ca is my set home page. When I open firefox, which takes me to www.google.ca, I start typing, the cursor jumps to the address bar. It used to automatically select all and replace the text in the address bar with what I am typing. Now when the cursor jumps to the address bar, it is positioned at the beginning and adds to the address bar.

If I start typing "my search request", it used to search google "my search request". No it wants to search "my search requesthttps://www.google.ca".

How do I get firefox to replace the address bar when I start typing?
