I have always had PDFs set to "Always ask" is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file This hasn't changed. The dialog which asks what to do with the file used to have "Save File" selected by default. This was convenient, because this is usually what I want. However, the default selection has recently changed to "Open with Firefox", which I hardly ever want. This requires me to perform an extra step when accessing PDFs from the Web, which I do quite often. I am not aware of having done anything which would affect this, nor have I found a corresponding option to change it back. How can I restore the previous behaviour?

With Firefox 83, the following change occurred:

  • Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel [in the address bar] now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I don't find this very useful since I have disabled search suggestions and would much rather have the old behavior of immediately performing a search when clicking the icon of my designed engine or site. My question is how do I disable the new change, and how do I re-enable the immediate search as default behavior so as to not have to shift-click for this?

Thank you.

This is driving me a bit mad...

A while ago the spellcheck in FF just stopped working. I literally only have a single add blocker installed that I've always used. I've not made any system changes lately beyond installing a few games.

- I have the "check spelling as you type" box checked in the browser options. - I have the English language pack installed from here (The British pack installed currently) - I've opened about:congif in the browser itself and made sure the value for layout.spellcheckDefault is set to 1.

It doesn't work on any site.

Chrome is working fine, but I prefer to use FF.

- I've tried reinstalling. - I've tried unchecking and rechcking the box.

Any ideas where what I should try next?

Any help really appreciated!

Whenever I add something to my "other bookmarks" folder it forces itself onto the right in my favorites tool bar. This hides my two rightmost icons (besides me just not wanting it there. There is no reason for it to be there).

I have gotten around this by creating a new folder named "other bookmarks 2" and just immediately dumping everything into it if I by mistake add something to the "other bookmarks" folder.

How do I stop it from doing this? I have read people talking about changing code in Firefox etc but 1. I couldn't find out where to do that and 2. I'm not comfortable doing so (especially when this should not be an issue in the first place).

How do I fix this please?

I should not have to ask this, but somehow this essential feature has been removed *again*. How in the world do we view the URLs of links in Windows 10 now? The status bar has been totally disappeared, and although there are a number of add-ons, so many of them are about other kinds of status, or only show the URL in limited circumstances, that I'm having trouble figuring out which ones offer the basic view-URL-on-hover. Does anyone have recommendations?

Even better, who can explain why it's a good idea to make it hard for users to see this absolutely vital information? If security is important then it's important to make it easy for users to see where links go before clicking on them. Full stop. And even if the web were somehow magically totally safe, people don't want to waste their time and bandwidth playing guessing games. We want to know what something is before we bother to open it up. Why is that so very hard to understand?????

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.

I accidentally set a frequent website I use to always open in the wrong container. I do get the prompt about 'would you like to open this container in [wrong container]' and I click the option not to do so while also having checked the box that says to remember this decision, but the check box seems to do nothing. I've checked the box countless times to no effect. I seem to have permanently created this state which is highly frustrating. I don't want this site opened in any container. I have a lot of sites I've configured in what I'm terming here "wrong container" (though it's the correct for those other sites), so I don't want to have to delete the entire container to fix this problem.

I've had other problems with Multi-Account Containers (such as, tabs I've closed coming back like zombies after restarting Firefox; or Firefox seeming to forget that certain tabs were in containers and the act of clicking their tab to place them in the correct container causes them first to reload in the default of no container), but for now my biggest issue is not being able to remove a website from the "always open in wrong container" list. Where is the list of websites per container stored? Is this somewhere in the about:config or in a raw, human-readable file on my filesystem somewhere? How can I fix my problem without having to delete the container entirely?

I'm running FF 82.0.2 (64-bit) with Multi-Account Containers version 7.2.0 on Manjaro Linux version 20.2
