My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.

I use Firefox 82.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 and Foxit Reader 10.0.1.35811 for reading PDF files. In the FF settings I set the handling of PDF documents to "Open with Foxit Reader 10.0". Once I have done that and click on a PDF file I will be asked what to do with the PDF and I confirm again to open it with Foxit.

That usually works for the moment but FF will always forget this setting again. I have configured FF to use Foxit at least five times over the last days days. But the next day FF will just download the PDF file again and do nothing with it (not even ask me what to do with it).

Any help is much appreciated.

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Hi,

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

Hi, I have a Mac running Firefox 84.0.2 and when I type a URL in the address bar and hit return it goes directly to that site.

On my new Mac running the same version of Firefox when I type in a URL it takes me to Google.

Notice in the first screen shot I typed in 'Mozilla' and it took me directly to this page. In the second screen on my new Mac the screen shot shows what happened when I typed 'Mozilla' in the address bar. It took me to Google.

I appreciate any suggestions you might have. I have spent some time trying to figure it out.

I've been at this for 45 minutes. Once and for all, as they say, I would like to get this actually accomplished. <sigh> I would like to synchronize all tabs from Firefox on one computer so that they will all automatically open on Firefox on another computer. What I see on the web is help with Sync: 1. sign in 2. click 'hamburger', my ID, & Sync Now 3 open Firefox on another computer ... and here's where the help diverts from what I would like to do. I do not want, every single time, to manually click 'hamburger', ID, Synced Tabs, etc. I would like Firefox to automatically open all the tabs that were open on the previous computer. I close Firefox on one with, say, 7 tabs open. I open Firefox on another and have ALL tabs propagate. Does anyone out there know of an add-on or some other setting to set? Any help in this would be great.

Having only recently been on here to try to sort out all my Thunderbird E-mail settings, I am now getting the error message 80004005 each time I attempt to send an E-mail from my tiscali.co.uk account. I am using all the recommended settings ( i.e. all the settings recommended by Talk Talk ) except that it seems not possible to combine the connection security setting SSL/TLS with outgoing port number 587 ( which is recommended ! ) Instead, when I enter outgoing port number 587 the connection security setting always defaults to STARTTLS. Could this be the cause of the latest problem ? I never used to get the error message 80004005 before ! And sometimes, when I DON'T get that error message, I get something else instead which says " Your Connection to the Server has Timed-Out." This is clearly rubbish and not correct. For weeks I have had on-going problems of one sort or another with Thunderbird. I have a POP3 account and I am not sufficiently au-fait with computers to think of changing it to IMAP. Any suggestions gratefully received ! SG.

I have an idea which should enhance security within Firefox, specifically to improve the security of Extensions.

It has become clear that many extensions are collecting and selling information about users to tracking and advertizing companies, without the user's knowledge or consent!

In response to learning about this, I started to disable the extensions which I did not need all the time and then "re-activate" them only when I needed to use them. Keeping the active Extensions strictly to essential security minded ones and a few other that I feel I NEED on a very regular basis - or all the time.

This is a bit of a drag and takes time each time I want to use certain extensions, but I now feel that it is necessary - until extensions are PREVENTED from collecting and selling user data!

Today I had an idea which would help and make this "Less of a Drag"!

When I "Disable" an extension, it's icon disaappears from my toolbar and only re-appears when "Re-activated". It would be better if when "Disabled" the Icon STAYED on the tool bar - but "Greyed Out", and with a right click menu with only two items on it - 1) "Re-Activate this extension" and 2) "Remove this extension". It would be useful also for when the extension is "Active" that the Icon has a right click item "Disable this Extension"! - Currently there is only the option to "Remove", which is not what I want to do!

This one relatively small change would allow users who are aware of the dangers, to control potentially "Leaky" but USEFUL extensions. The vast amount of time they would not be ABLE to track and collect users data, which would make what they collect when "Activated" much less useful!

This would be a useful and EFFECTIVE tool against "malware" extensions which are collecting and selling user data. It would be a useful "Stop-Gap" until you get around to actually PREVENTING extensions from doing this!!!!

Ideally extensions should be PREVENTED from having access to or selling any data and should ONLY have access to information that is specifically NEEDED for the functioning of the extension. VERY CLEARLY the very broad designations of the current "Permission" system do not work!!

I hope you take action on this, because it would CERTAINLY help!
