In the last few days every time I click on a link on a page, it takes me to Yahoo Search Engine, which I don't want! My choice is GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE!

Also at the same time this changed, if I click to go to Add Ons it takes me to a Blank Page?

Never had these problems before, tried many outdated suggestions, which don't work?

Is there a way to edit the URL of a bookmark while I'm adding it?

I've changed from Google Chrome to Firefox months ago, and this is one of my biggest gripes with Firefox ever since I switched. Back when I used Google Chrome, I used this feature when I'm bookmarking YouTube videos.

YouTube will often add extra text at the end of URLs, such as "&feature=em-uploademail." I usually remove this to try and keep my URLs as clean as possible. The inability to edit bookmark URLs while creating new bookmarks makes this process much more tedious because when I realize that there's extra text at the end of a URL I have to remove the extra text in the address bar, refresh the page, wait several seconds for the page to fully load (when the page is still loading, the title of the page is often blank), and then I can finally bookmark the video.

This issue has been so annoying to the point of where I've considered switching back to Google Chrome.

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-adobe-flash says Firefox 84 still supports Flash. Yet on some learning websites that use Flash still, like alison.com but it doesn't really matter where right, it shows this where the flash app should be and all blank white around it: (see "capture" screenshot below)

And I can't click on it nor is there a pop-up bar nor a little plugin icon at the beginning of the URL / address box to click on.

How do i enable it?

I found this: (see "extensions,plugins,shockwave_flash" screenshot) Am I close? :)

I just got my upgrade from Firefox86 to Firefox90 working, but the tab bar is completely missing.

I still use "old-style" FIrefox. From top to bottom: File/Edit/View menu Search bar Bookmarks Toolbar Tab bar

(yes, I AM old. I've been using Firefox since Version 1 and this particular style works for me, developers be damned.)

The tab bar is completely missing. Firefox knows how many tabs I have open (it warns me when I try to exit) but doesn't show any. The area that the Tab Bar used to occupy is simply empty.

Any ideas on how to fix? (Yes, I have done the Google.)

Bonjour,

Je rencontre un problème très curieux avec Firefox depuis plusieurs semaines. Uniquement avec la version PC et uniquement sur le site Linkedin.

Dès que j'ouvre Linkedin, c'est comme si la page était rafraichie plusieurs fois (3, 4, 5... ?) avant de se stabiliser.

Si j'ouvre des onglets supplémentaires (par exemple pour lire un post avant de revenir à mon fil d'actualité), les différentes onglets se rafraichissent également.

Cela ne se produit pas sur mon smartphone Android. Cela ne se produit pas non plus sur PC avec Chrome.

Merci de vos suggestions. De quels renseignements de configuration avez-vous besoin ?

Hi Guys,

Recently, I found that my Amazon affiliate adverts don't show up on the PC screen when using Firefox browser. There is no problem with Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers on iPhone or iPad and no problems with Chrome browser on PC. Only Firefox browser on PC screen does not show the adverts. You can check it at https://drepeternews.com/support.php with different browsers on your PC. Also do check the source code page and you will see the advert links are there. Please let me know whether you can see the adverts on your PC Firefox as that may indicate whether it is an Amazon or a Firefox or my PC issue.

This issue is with links to images and with <iframes> and only occurs on my laptops running Windows 8.10 and Windows 10.00. I have enable 3rd party cookies

Any idea how to fix this. All help is very welcome.

Thanks, Peter

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
