Hi. When I go to Preferences -> Search -> Default Search Engine, the field is completely blank, there are no search engines whatsoever. Even the Search Shortcuts doesn't list any search engines, (only Bookmarks, Tabs and History). Even the "Find more search engines" tab which takes me to the Firefox Browser Add-Ons is no help, because I can't find any search engines (like Google or Bing) there.

Thanks for your help.

I recently upgraded to Firefox 102 on my machine running OS X 10.15.7 and started facing issues with improperly rendered text. See a screenshot of the Google search page for "малина" affected by this issue (screenshot 1). Moreover, other alphabets like Armenian get completely messed up, as opposed to Russian where only spaces and punctuation marks seem to be affected (screenshot 2).

I asked my peers running on OS X 12.4 to try and see if they experience the same problem but they saw no issues whatsoever.

I temporarily downgraded to Firefox 101 but would appreciate a solution.

In every other App (PC and browser) my mouse scroll wheel behaves normally but with Sheets, in Firefox browser, the slightest wheel movement causes the sheet to scroll dozens of lines at a time. It doesn't misbehave with Sheets in Chrome. I've tried changing mouse settings and settings in Firefox but to no avail. Is there a setting somewhere in Sheets or Firefox that I can change to reduce the scroll speed?

I run wxmaxima on ubunbtu 20.04. The help menu option calls up firefox (v 101.0.1 (64 bit)) to find the local on disk html files. However this brings up the error message:

File not found

Firefox can’t find the file at /usr/share/maxima/5.45.1/doc/html/maxima_singlepage.html#g_t_0025.

But this is a valid path with user access permissions and the file maxima_singlepage.html exists and has user read permissions.

So what is firefox doing in looking for this file?

I have used the ms windows 10 version of wxmaxima and the firefox help works perfectly.

Hi, Downloading files to a system directory (Linux) such as /home/me/doc/here /home/me/doc/there Have Ask me where to save files checked.

But lastDir is not a real directory I can navigate, such as /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This causes the user needs to navigate sometimes very long system directory tree for each successive file download.

In about:config I set:

 browser.download.lastDir 
 browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite	false	
 browser.open.lastDir

But every time these are obfuscated to something like: /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This introduces about 10 user interactions with mouse/keyboard for each file I download in succession.

How do I get FF to stop obfuscating real system directories for "lastDir"

Really really appreciate the help :)

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

When I join a Google Hangout and try to share my entire screen, Firefox always prompts me whether to share a window or the entire screen. I always want to share the entire screen. But when I enable the checkbox for "Remember this decision" I get this warning: Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen.

Why does this happen? Is it because I'm on a unbuntu or is it specific to ubuntu Catalina?

Hello! Hoping someone can help with this new (to me) issue. I've searched and can't seem to find any articles/threads.

When I open the wifi menu on my laptop, I also see a media player featuring a video I watched three days ago (image attached). I've used my computer several times since then and didn't notice it. It also doesn't appear to be functional, as when I click play, nothing happens.

Is there a setting I'm missing to get this to go away and to prevent it from coming back again?

Thanks in advance!
