Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

About using these firefox support pages and this search feature specifically.


the more words I add the more results are returned there seems to be no intellegence in selecting the appropriate answer, it all appears keyword driven.

This is not beneficial in reaching the correct answer. At times I will go to 'Ask your question' because of this and I can guess many of us do. No one wants to read un-related articles!

I would expect to see the results lessen by adding more keywords to a refinement which I can then see in real time.

At times I would like to search for an add-on that I can not "Phrase" the description of as such:

'I am looking for an addon that will download every page I visit for a predetermined time automatically and make those downloaded pages accessible to the open tabs from which those downloads came from so that I can have the cache on hard drive"

I don't know how to call this thing by a search term and need help with this one question really.

I would have other question also such as how to build an add-on.

Is there a forum specifically related to these add-ons only This forum should be specific to the types of add-on we see in Firefox and Google Chrome for developers and enthisiasts.

I see no link to such a forum in the addons page though there is the link to Manage add-ons; or, is this the best place for such questions?

Thanks in advance!

This was not an issue until v3.57 and beyond. It looks like lines are written on top of each other. Most forms are unreadable and you see or fill in any online forms. I could easily provide many screen shots.Seveal versions ago Mozilla sent me an add-on that completely fixed the issue. I cannot remember the name of the add-on and have exhausted my search. But it exists. Mozilla tech guy responded to my question with a link. Unfortunately, I can't find it any longer. He said it had to do with high dpi settings and the 16x9 format of the Samsung I use as a monitor.

Firefox has always redirected me to the german versions of most websites, however these sites usually have a way to direct yourself back to the American version of the website. Unfortunately, that does not seem to work anymore.

Hi,starting form yesterday the feedback button in Firefox 4.0 beta 2 isn't working anymore,it redirects to the download page for 4.0 beta 2 telling I have to upgrade to the latest version to use the feedback function-anybody know what's going on? I've already reset to default general.useragent.extra.firefox and general.useragent.locale,still doesn't work-thanks

Edit:well,as someone pointed out on the Input Dashboard,changing general.useragent.extra.firefox to 4.0b3 makes the feedback function work again,however I'm not sure if the message then actually appears on the dashboard-very strange,hope it gets fixed ASAP.
