I use the private tab for questions or otherwise things I'm too afraid to search up or keep in my history, and it's annoying that the results aren't in english and/or other websites aren't in english. I'd like to know if there is a setting/feature for this.

Thanks in advance!

I am disappointed with the background change with updates. The last time I updated Firefox, I had to do a system recovery to revert back. Then another person expressed concerns with a new version taking control over updating. Why don't you have updates that give you options to choose the background color and who decides if and when you update? I will not update Firefox under these conditions. And I don't want to spend half a day trying to change my background back to white, and especially if would have to do that with every update. Like I have to change my printing options when I do updates! I have been so happy with Firefox for the last 20 yrs. or so, until all of this. Please make this more user friendly and optional.

firefox search results have changed when i query for "news"; everyday i search for news by simply entering the word news into the browser. The results always were preceded by a scroll able header that had a picture relevant to article and story and the underneath was a list of news sites ( like CBC, CNN, MSNBC, etc)... now when i type in my query ( the word "news") the results displayed still list all the news sites but the header with pictures and story has disappeared - can anyone help?

Having lots of problems logging in and with functionality on websites I use a lot, when I use firefox that I do not have if I switch to chrome... like airline websites I go to where my login via firefox won't work, banking sites, shopping sites, sites where I have profiles....

When i open a new tab, i want to start my research in the central search bar of the home page, not in the adress bar.

With firefox 90, it dit not work anymore.

How can i retrieve the previous behaviour ?

Thanks.

How does bookmark sync merge bookmarks and tags?

I use Firefox on two different computers. On one, I'm logged in with bookmarks syncing enabled, and on the other one, no Firefox account is added. I do bookmark and tagging on both. I wonder what will happen with the bookmarks and their tags for the same bookmarked websites after I sign-in on the other computer?

For example, on the signed-in computer mozilla.org is bookmarked with tags: Firefox, mozzila and on the other computer without account mozilla.org is bookmarked with tags: browser, application

After I enable syncing on the second computer, will I get a result of the merged synced bookmark: mozilla.org with tags firefox, mozzila, browser, application or it will get overwritten?

If you don't touch the autoplay permissions for a site, Firefox seems to be attempting to use some heuristics to decide whether autoplay, such as calling ".play()" on an Audio object in javascript, should be allowed. What are these heuristics, and where are they authoritatively documented? [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/d.../Autoplay_guide#autoplay_availability|MDN] has some information but nothing Firefox-specific.
