I just installed Foxfire on my new laptop.

On my previous laptop when I did a google search it would take me right to what I was looking for.

Now when I do a search...it lists several ads first and the actual thing I am looking for is about 5 or 6 items down. Is there a way to get it back to how it as on my old laptop where there were no ads at the op of the page?

Thank you.

In other 'apps' on windows 10 the tooltip is above the pointer or below it. In Firefox it is directly under the mouse. So usually any tooltip popup in firefox is unreadable, mostly. One can infer the content sometimes.

How do i change that? Or what is the problem?

I'll try and include a screenshot. Hmm, the screenshot didn't include the mouse. I think i can do a video with OBS and then a screenshot of that.

Interesting, somehow in the screenshot from the obs video it shows 2 mouse pointers. One is very small and the tooltip is just below that, but the other is larger (the one I see) and it covers the tooltip. I'm using the standard windows mouse settings for larger mouse pointers. I just tried using the 'old' mouse settings to select a larger mouse and it behaves the same way. If I select size: 1 in the new size settings, and the old settings i have 'windows system' mouse, then the tooltip is under the pointer but the size is too small for the pointer. I then changed to another mouse setting in the old selector "inverted extra large" and you can see the tooltip because of the 'inverted' nature of the pointer, but the tooltip is still partially covered by the pointer.

Ideally the choice would be to put the tooltip above the mouse pointer rather than below. When you increase the size of the mouse pointer it only increases down, not up. The point of the pointer is always at the top.

I'm going to try one more thing, increasing the size in the new settings after having selected "inverted", but i recall that it changes to the new pointer style. Ah, there is an inverted setting in the new options as well, and if i select that instead of the gray color i was using then one can read the tooltip through the mouse.

So, then my question becomes "can I put the tooltip above the mouse pointer?" Because it is still covered by the mouse pointer as is. I don't see anything in 'about:config', so far.

Thank you.

Dec.26/2021:

Greetings,

So I would like to elaborate on my original query. When one searches for text on a web-page (ctl-f), all visible occurrences of that text (any case, any wildcard) will be highlited nicely. In the search bar at the bottom, you can click up-chevron, or down-chevron to have the page move-to and present each occurrence of that text nicely.

However, if you click a chevron, and that next occurrence of text is NOT presented (the web-page does not advance to wherever that text exists), then you know that occurrence of text is hidden, perhaps "in a frame" somewhere. Firefox does not highlite which frame. You would essentially need to click on everything that needs a click-to-open/expand, in the entire page, in oder for the Firefox search to then reveal that text.

That *severely* reduces the usefulness of Firefox's search a page for text. We are astonished that this issue has not been raised by anyone else (afaik).

How does one ask Firefox coders to take a look into this? Thanks again. Jason.

Greetings,

Often when Searching the contents of the current web page for text, some words are hidden or backgrounded, and not visible, as we cycle through the search counter.

How can we reveal those words on the page, that are hidden like ghosts? Thank you. All Replies (1) cor-el cor-el

Are you sure that these results aren't hidden because of search settings like "Match Case" or "whole Words" ?

If you use Quick Find then these settings are hidden and you need to open the Find bar via Ctrl+F.

If the results are in an iframe and aren't visible (i.e. you need to scroll this frame) then they might not be found.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

   switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
   do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

While i was browsing through websites using Firefox, i opened a new tab and got the notification saying something like While you were browsing, Firefox was updated in the background. There there was a button at the bottom saying Restart Firefox. When i clicked on that button Firefox restarted automatically as expected. My question is that now i want to see the Update History of Firefox. So how can i check/see the Update history of Firefox.

I am using Ubuntu 18.01 and Firefox 95.0.1 (64bit)
