Hello, I use Duck Duck Go as a default search engine, with Google and others as alternatives. Since I switched my compter, Firefox resets the default engine back to ebay, which cannot be deleted in the list and also shows up in the address bar. Could you please tell me how to get rid of it? Thank you very much!

I am experimenting with changing from Microsoft Edge to Firefox. However, a couple of bookmarks that have favicons in Microsoft Edge do not appear to work in Firefox. Attached is a .gif showing me trying to add https://app.powerbi.com to the bookmark bar. You can see that there is an icon on the tab, along with an icon that appears when trying to drag to the bookmark bar. However, when it gets to the bookmark bar, it goes back to the default icon and does not show the actual favicon. The same thing happens when trying to add https://vscode.dev. However, both of those sites have favicon images in the bookmark bar on Microsoft Edge.

Any ideas on how to get the favicon to appear would be greatly appreciated. I understand that it may seem a pretty trivial thing, but I do a lot of screen recordings for my work, and want all of the icons on the bar to appear.

My Wife and I are both 75 years old and have huge problems coping with modern computer technology. We have 3 computers with Ubuntu and Firefox. We find that we are able to successfully connect with most of our accounts. With some accounts like Royal Bank, Nextdoor, Koodo, TD Bank, Canadian Government we get in but only get a blank page and cannot go further. Accounts have told us the problem is Firefox and that we need to change to either Chrome or Edge. We have been with Ubuntu and Firefox since 2006, love both and do not want to change.

I'm currently working on building a website, and while testing several of the front end parameters I'm just hitting a wall with firefox incognito's ability to clear the cache.

After I clear the cache, it's obvious that it's worked on the regular browser, but no matter how many times I clear it, how long I wait (this has been a 2 day ordeal), or how much of the history, cookies, cache, etc that I clear, the private browser information will not clear. Closing all windows, restarting the computer doesn't work.

I've changed aspects to a form and other aspects to a particular page, and am in the middle of doing a conflict test so every one of my plugins are off so the site looks 100% different on the main browser, but the private browser is stuck in the past.

Thoughts?

When I used to take screenshots, they would be automatically named with the date, time, and part of the text captured regardless of language. A few days ago and with no reason I can discern, it now saves any non-English screenshots with something like this "Screenshot 2024-06-23 a[...].png" instead of "Screenshot 2024-06-22 at 08-02-28 Politics Policy Polit[...].png" (usual for English text and what I used to get with all languages).

Which means I have to manually rename screenshots. Does anyone know how I can fix this because I am working on a project with lots of screenshots for topics from different languages?

I recently updated many drivers on my Windows PC as it was running very sluggish. I ran CC cleaner on it and updated 6 drivers including the Graphics card and several others.

Now Firefox browser will not launch. I have installed the latest version of Firefox also.. 127 I believe it is.

Any ideas on how to get it to run again?

I would like to review a listing of all the extensions recommended by Mozilla for FF. One would think a list exists somewhere. But my searching for recommended extensions have not yielded the anticipated results. I found an article on the recommended extension program, but no list. If the answer is obvious, forgive me, but I didn't see it.

Thanks in advance,

hi,

i updated from 88 to 115 release. i noticed the contextual menu (the one when you mouse-right-click on a bookmark in a bookmark menu) have change... there are more item, and a different sort of each feature item.

i added a screenshot to help you understand my need: i wish to delete (or move) the "add bookmark - add folder - add separator" group and put in its place the "edit/delete bookmark" group. How to do that ?

It is strange, but in 30 years of computer activities, i never saw a "delete" feature option displayed before cut/copy/paste !!!! it almost looks like a tiny bug-issue :-) Maybe i should add it to bugzilla ?

thank you for you help and advice.

My email was hacked and AT&T suspended my account and I can no longer access my old [email1]@att.net email. My new email is [email2]@att.net. Your system will not let me change my information since I cannot access the old email account. Do I just delete the entire account and if so will I loose all my Firefox information I have saved and get a new account?

If I download a .PDF file (or anything else) Firefox asks where I want to save the file and I can change the name of the file. The file is then downloaded to my selected folder on my PC. BUT a copy of the file, with original name, is also stored in my C: downloads folder. How can I stop that? I know how I can change the default folder but I do not want any default download folder, I want to be asked "Where?", "Name?" and the ONLY copy of download goes to that location.
