How can I sync only one bookmarks folder across Firefox profiles and accounts, with their smart keywords?

If you don’t know about smart keywords, basically you can set phrases as shortcuts for specific bookmarks. I want a folder with all of my keywords synced, and that folder only. On each profile or account I have have whatever other folders and the placement of the folder with the keywords doesn’t matter as long as they have...

Let me clarify: I want to see "lemmy" in the URL bar if I search it and can copy it instead of https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy

Apparently I wasn’t clear enough in my other post. When I focus on the URL bar on a search page with either CMD L or by clicking it, I want to be able to just copy the phrase “lemmy” instead of having to select the text from www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. If I type search queries with spaces in them, the spaces are...

How can I show search querys in the URL bar instead of URLs? (and for all search engines, including custom ones)

I often do searches with multiple search engines and extras with the same query but with site:reddit.com added at the end. Being able to press CMD L to focus the URL bar, and then CMD C with all the text selected would make things a lot faster. This was added months ago to Firefox but it looks like it was removed now.

New extensions you’ll love now available on Firefox for Android (blog.mozilla.org)

Today, Mozilla announced more than 450 new extensions (software that adds new features or functionality to the browser) to users on Firefox for Android at Mozilla’s AMO Android page. This milestone marks the launch of a new open extension ecosystem on mobile where developers are now free to create and publish extensions and...

Can I add a custom search engine *with* query autocomplete / search suggestions?

By default I use Google and it shows search suggestions, but when I add a custom search engine like https://www.google.com/search?q=, or a completely different one, I don’t get any. I don’t really care where the suggestions are coming from, they could be the same as the one for the default engine.

Is it possible to select multiple tabs: the current tab and tabs to the left or right, using just the keyboard? (no mouse at all)

I’m trying to use my keyboard more since doing things with a mouse or trackpad is more time consuming. I’d like something like: pressing Control Shift Alt > to select the tab to the right (along with the current tab), and press it again to select the tab to the right of that, making it three tabs selected. Same thing with...

Shouldn't browsers protect what users write from being seen by the website (like customer support chats) before hitting send? Would it be difficult to implement?

I’m sure its common knowledge by now that whatever you write in text boxes on customer support chats can be seen by whoever is on the other side, without or before hitting send. Don’t you think that’s a breach of privacy?! I imagine it isn’t too difficult to implement a fix for it: The browser (like Firefox) could choose...

"We are moving away from native widgets, and the ability to disable non-native widgets will be removed as well" What are your thoughts on this? (bugzilla.mozilla.org)

I really don’t like the psuedo-native look of the element dropdown menu on macOS, and I thought Firefox was trying to embrace native widgets when they added support for macOS right click context menus a few years ago. That issue was open for 20+ years! This sucks....

Say (an encrypted) hello to a more private internet. (blog.mozilla.org)

As web users, what we say and do online is subject to pervasive surveillance. Although we typically associate online tracking with ad networks and other third-party sites, our online communications travel across commercial telecommunication networks, allowing these privileged entities to siphon the names of the websites we visit...

Test Firefox Android extensions and help developers prepare for an open mobile ecosystem in December (blog.mozilla.org)

In August we encouraged developers to start preparing their desktop extensions for Firefox Android open availability on addons.mozilla.org (AMO). The project is progressing well and we’re on track to launch the open mobile ecosystem on AMO in December. We have more infrastructure development and testing to complete in the...

If you exclusively use vertical tabs (either with CSS or another way), how is it? Did you miss horizontal tabs at all?

I’m trying to switch to Floorp right now from Firefox, where I have both the regular horizontal tabs, and a flat vertical list with the Tree Style Tab extension. I use the later a lot, and while I could keep this setup in Floorp, I like that the vertical tabs can be native instead of using TST. However, it just feels weird to...
