Answer: How To Bookmark All Tabs/Pages In the New Firefox

It’s annoying, isn’t it? We used this feature all the time on Firefox and then–BOOM!–with the automatic upgrades or whatever they do in the background, the bookmark all tabs feature is gone as you see in the image below in the new Firefox:

Well, Since You Asked so nicely, we’ll go ahead and tell you what the solution is…and fortunately there is one :)

If you would like to use the bookmark all tabs/pages feature in the new Firefox, simply click the ALT key and B. That’s ALT-B. As you see in the graphic below, this will bring back the “Bookmark All Tabs Feature”.

Kindle Fire Keyboard Disappears After I Press One Key?

Question:  When I am using my Amazon Kindle Fire, the keyboard disappears after I type just one key in Google.  I then have to go back and type another key to get the keyboard to stay there.  Why is this and is there a solution?

Keyboard Disappears on the Kindle Fire: Solution

This is a great question and one that has been plaguing Kindle Fire users. After all, what is one thing that you do on your Kindle Fire aside from reading books? Exactly, surfing the web. In fact, I actually surf the web on my Kindle MORE than reading books so this issue of the keyboard disappearing really irked me.

Fortunately, there is a solution that is quick and easy.

The key to this question is the word Google. Does the Kindle Fire keyboard disappear when you use Yahoo or Bing? You probably never tried this, because like us, you are a Google user. But the answer is no…which led us to believe that the problem of the keyboard disappearing is unique to using Google on the Kindle Fire.

Upon reading that, the lightbulbs went off, we got smart quickly, and found the answer which is…

Keyboard Disappears When Using Google on the Kindle Fire: Problem Solved!

Ok folks, the problem here is the instant results feature with Google and the Kindle Fire. Hopefully, it will get fixed in a newer version, but, for now, the solution is simple.

You need to turn off the auto-complete feature in Google and your keyboard disappearing after one keystroke problem will magically go away!

To turn off the autocomplete feature in Google, simply access the “search settings” button on your Google home screen as seen in the photo below:

Access Google Search Settings

Once you are in the Google Search Settings, under the “Google Instant Predictions” title, select “Never Show Instant Results” as you see in the photo below and make sure to hit save on the bottom of the screen.

After you do this, the keyboard will no longer disappear when you are searching Google on your Kindle Fire. Thank Goodness!!!!
