I have Bing removed from my search engines and when I call up a new window Bing is not there, YAY. But if an app creates a window, even Thunderbird, the window has Bing as it default search engine and is back in the list of search options. This must be a default within Firefox itself or some data file where this comes from. How can I permanently remove Bing.

Addition information, if I lose all my open windows during a crash, last happened when I updated my bios it also reverts to Bing.

Opening History and Bookmarks in sidebar both have built-in keyboard shortcuts. The Synced Tabs sidebar doesn't, for some strange reason. This feels like an oversight. Can this be fixed in future versions of Firefox?

I don't know which version had this change but not long before, I could type "y " (note the extra space character) and press enter to go to Youtube home page via address bar because "y" is my Youtube search engine shortcut word.

Now, when I try to do that with the latest Firefox, the search bar stylistically changes to indicate I'm searching in Youtube but pressing enter without typing any search term no longer launches the Youtube home page. I don't see the reasoning behind removing this feature, so I'm posting it here to let it be known. I hope the change is a bug and not intended.

Hi,

When I perform a search with google with Firefox Developer Edition 85.0b1 and click in a Stackoverflow link the browser performs this behaviour:

1. A tab with clicked link is opened with no history. 2. The tab with google search is closed.

I performed the same test in standard version of firefox and the behaviour doesn´t occur.

Hi Mozilla, I write this message here since I can't find a good place to contact you (bugzilla.mozilla.org maybe?)

Anyway, I'm a huge fan of everything you do and how you do it, and I don't hesitate from time to time to donate to the foundation.

I'm aware that most of your products and services are free, and therefore you need more resources than only donation.

The reason why I send this message, it's because I think you could add a new (paid) service to your list. A reliable and robust MX mail server system, that we could rent each month.

I'm actually renting 2 Cloud VPS, and my biggest issue was to have a trustable mail server that would not look suspicious for spam filters (spam assassin, Google etc).

That's the only reason why I pay a Google Suite every month.. to have a reliable and solid @mydomain email, and be sure my emails will be delivered every time. But I would totally prefer to give you this money better than them.

I know there's other solutions already, but I think it make sense for Mozilla to have this service, since emails and mail servers are very sensitive regarding privacy, personal data etc. and we all trust you more than Google empire.

I don't know if you can read this, but please tell me if there's a better place to send this message.

Thank you very much, Long life to Mozilla, all the best,

Phil

On Youtube, it appears to show a progress bar but no video, and the wheel just spins. Pandora shows the song, but does not play. Streaming radio stations do not play. Sites that I am a member and pay for, does not play their podcasts. All happened at once. All of this does however work in Chrome. I do not want to use Chrome. I've started FF in safemode, and messed with extensions and plug ins, nothing seems to work for me.

I like firefox's popup blocker, but since recently it's not been able to handle my bookmarklet that pops up a window. It causes a popup blocked message *as if the popup had come from the site I was visiting* whereas actually it's come from clicking the button in the toolbar.

e.g. I have a bookmarklet that bookmarks the current page with a Nextcloud service. It uses a popup to do this.

Firefox's popup options are (a) allow all popups - no thanks! (b) allow popups for the site I'm visiting - again, not what I want, or (c) allow this specific popup this time.

It would be great if there were options like:

- allow popups taking me to domain/url x (e.g. I trust my nextcloud site) - allow popups clicked from the bookmarks toolbar - allow popups from a particular bookmarklet

Do any work arounds exist? I'm sure this has only recently been a problem as I've always used the popup blocker.

Unfortunately after much trawling around on the interwebs it has led me nowhere except for this sad bug report on Bugzilla.

Does anyone know how else I can use ⇧⌘N for New Private Window?

Dear Firefox Geeks—

After the last update to FF Dev 85.0b5, when a web site give me the option of uploading a file, the system file navigator invoked by FireFox Dev effectively freezes for 10 to 20 seconds, or more. During that time the file selector window does not respond to navigation clicks. When it finally does, it then does not respond to file selection clicks, and after it does, does not respond to 'choose' button clicks in the lower right corner of the window.

Just thought you might want to know.

In my notebook I have dualboot with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04, and in Ubuntu Firefox notifications are integrated with the system, but in Windows 10 the notification is a ugly white rectangle. I tried to search how to change, and one site said I have to go to to Settings>System>Notifications & Actions and scroll down to Receber notificações destes remetentes and turn on Firefox, but Firefox don't appear there, as you can see in the screenshot. I'm Brazilian, so my system is in Portuguese.

I'm running Windows 10 on a Surface Pro like device (it's a Vaio Canvas). I have a bluetooth keyboard that is always connected, but I often just use it as a tablet. I've tried disconnecting the physical keyboard but I still get the same behaviour.

Using touchscreen, I select a text box (or URL bar/search box etc), normally the On-screen Keybard (OSK) comes up and lets me type. Right now, with FF it pops up and then promptly disappears.

This makes FF completely unusable using touchscreen/tablet mode. I have switched to using chrome on this device - I've tested other browsers too and none exhibit this behaviour. Could it be my settings?

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.
