As it is, Command-F or Control-F searches only support exact phrase search.

If I want to search for any of 6 terms, I have to type them in, one at a time. If I want to search multiple pages, it's a lot of extra typing.

If other people have asked this same question since 57, well, support.mozilla.org does not have a working search function. Apparently Findbar Tweaks provided this function up through 56. But searching "Findbar" in addons.mozilla.org yields every other kind of bar, but nothing involving the findbar, because, well, addons.mozilla.org does not have a working search function, because it stems and defaults to OR searches.

Multi-Keywords Highlighter can highlight these results, but can't help me navigate to each one.

Willing to consider another browser, but must be able to block flashing, block animation, and block blinking cursors, due to neuro issues.

I'm currently using macOS 10.14, had been using macOS 10.12. I'm currently on Firefox 72.0.1, but I think the problems described below go back to version 69 or so.

It seems like anything I do with Firefox means that it creates a new profile and I have to set my old profile as the default, launch in a new browser, and delete the new profile. By "anything" I mean: restarting the computer; logging out and back in; updating Firefox; quitting and relaunching Firefox. The last one doesn't always happen--sometimes I close Firefox, relaunch it, and everything is fine. Sometimes I close Firefox, relaunch it, and it's created a new profile and I have to go through the little dance setting it back to the old profile and deleting the new one. Actions like restarting the computer and logging out usually mean that the icon on the dock has been replaced by a question mark and I have to drag Firefox back down to the dock to get it down there again. This is tedious and annoying, so I'd really like to figure out how to just get Firefox to keep using the same profile unless I change it for some reason. Any suggestions?

Every day I search for something or other and discover mid-search that I'm using that loathsome stupid brain dead Yahoo search engine. I keep trying to set my preferences and they keep reverting. Don't give me a long complicated procedure to fix the problem, fix it yourself. Get rid of Yahoo or get rid of me. I'll start using Chrome or Safari or Opera. Lots of competition. Incompetence doesn't last long. Goodbye stupid Firefox.

if I "Open in New Tab", how can I (in that new tab) eliminate the address of the 'opened from' tab which always appears after a question mark?

For example, a BBC news article cites a report from the U.N. Opening the link to the U.N. report in a new tab leads to an address such as “http://www.un.org/budget/?bbc etc” when what I need for citation is to the UN report is just “http://www.un.org/budget/”. In citing reports for an article it is time consuming to open in a new tab, highlight the actual address (but not the ? and referred-from address which follows) then open the actual address in a new tab so it can be entered as a footnote in what I am writing. I would like the address to open in a new tab without the referred-from info.

I get this rubbish: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.facebook.com because this web site requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.facebook.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

If my firefox start page name is e.g. "http:/world.com/WeAreTheWorld.htm" it doesn't work, because firefox is starting with "http:/world.com/wearetheworld.htm". All upper case letters are moved to lower case letters. The bookmark routine of firefox doesn't have this issue. I think that is a bug of firefox whish should be fixed.

Most of the time but not all of the time Firefox appears to be missing all menus, but it seems that it has actually just nulled all the strings. The image shows the problem. This seems to be the case 100% if I click a link from email. Starting a new window does show the menu. I've tried the reset menu procedures I have found with no effect.

This is MacOS Catalina. I don't recall this happening prior to upgrading to Catalina.

I have cleared all history and restarted the browser and then opened only the New York Times -- no other tabs/sites -- and it still opens in Facebook Container. Does anyone know why that happens and/or how to stop it from happening? The whole point of Facebook Container is to isolate it from everything else you're doing so it can't track all your other business.
