I download a lot of images, and I would like to remove a bunch of entries from the context menu for images (entries which I keep clicking by accident). Can I do that?

Thank you.

I am using FF 71, which I will not be upgrading. Indeed, I want to return to a previous version to stop the upgrade nagging.

I don't like Firefox's UI that much. Hence, I installed the Tabliss extension to make it look better. I wanted Tabliss to open whenever Firefox starts. So, I took the link from the "open tabliss whenever firefox starts" setting in tabliss. But, whenever I set the homepage and new windows settings to Tabliss and click the home button, it takes me to the default homepage. How do you fix this? Or could you release an update fixing the error. This error is not present in Chrome.

I am running Windows 10 Pro 19042.746. Firefox is version 85.0.1 64 bit.

I would like to pre-configure firefox so that it has my custom settings and bookmarks.

I'm not sure if this is the correct method to pre-configure settings:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\autoconfig.js

pref("general.config.filename", "firefox.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.cfg

Is this the correct method to pre-configure the default user profile? Where can I find a list or generate output so I can see configurable settings?

How can I pre-configure my booksmarks on the bookmark tools bar?

Thanks in advance, -Kevin

Hi, I've been using Firefox Nightly for long time, but recently I haven't open it too often. Today I opened again and noticed that the Add-ons that are usually on the right side of the bar are gone, but I still see them on Preferences -> Manage Your Extensions. I cannot find a way to put them back on the Toolbar. My concern is with Add-ons like Metamask that I usually use to sign in some websites. I cannot click on it from where it is on Preferences.

Hi,

I've gone to the search options on Firefox and cannot find google.co.nz as an add-on to make it my default search engine - which it used to be but now with latest update it has defaulted to google.com and I can't get it back to google.co.nz. Adding nz to each search doesn't provide the same as google.co.nz.

Can anyone out there help?

Many thanks,

I have had Ecosia set as my default search engine for some time but just now I did a search and it came up in Bing instead - something in the settings has been altered without my knowledge or permission. Ecosia is *not* available as one of the options under about:preferences#search and none of the articles I can find on making it my default actually work.

Any advice on how I can get back to the situation half an hour ago when if I typed a search phrase in the address bar the results came up in Ecosia?

My dad did somethink with Avast antivirus(at least he said so) and after that we have no search engine available. If you try to type something in a serch bar you can only open direct links. Default search engine button in the settings does not respond and even following instructions on the site I can't add new search engines. Tried Google, YouTube and DuckDuckGo but to no avail. There is just no option to add new search engine.

P.S. Don't know how to reach russian-speaking support, so screenshots are in russian with some explanations on top.

As shown in the picture I'm trying to readd duckduckgo.com as a search engine to Firefox, but the suggestions in form of a plus sign won't show up right next to the magnifying glass.

This has been confirmed on popular webpages such as duckduckgo.com or bing.com, but for some sort of reason it shows on yahoo.com. (That's where the picture is from).

Deinstalling and reinstalling didn't add duckduckgo.com to the list of search engines and I don't want to lose my settings, since I'm not using a Firefox account (despite using it here for the purpose of asking my question).

Any suggestions?

Your page at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recommendations-firefox#w_what-kinds-of-features-and-extensions-do-you-recommend states, "Features and extensions are selected for recommendation through a thorough review process." As Firefox has the built-in capacity to copy plain text with Ctrl+shift+V, I find it strange that this "thorough review process" has selected an extension that does the same thing. I'm aware that the extension has a few minor added options, but these are not how the extension is promoted and I'm pretty sure hardly anyone uses them--and they certainly couldn't justify the Recommended appellation.

I've installed Autofill addon, it appears in the main taskbar now but when I click on it nothing happens.

Clicking on "Lightning" icon does nothing.

I don't see any new items in the right-click context menu either. I've installed another similar addon and it seems to be unusable as well. Reloading the page doesn't help. There are no errors in the console either.

How am I supposed to use addons on Firefox if none of them are working?
