    Does anyone know how to find a search funtion to look for articles on the newest Firefox update? This used to be straigtforward, but I can no longer find it, and I have so many articles posted that I need to use this when looking for something.

      I'm not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean "find" which searches for text on a page?  I don't have the newest version installed, but Ctrl+F will allow you to search if you can't access the function from 'edit' on the menu (or don't have a menu displayed).

        Yes, it might be called "find". My keyboard and controls are not in English, so for me it is called "Buscar". When I went to the account page, though, and pressed Cntrl+F, I am not seeing anywhere to type in a search phrase. Do you know where I should be looking? Thanks.

          This might help. I don't know whether they've updated this help info, but it seems that you click on the icon with the three horizontal bars. This brings up the menu and then you can click on "find". This brings up a search bar at the bottom of the screen.

        I just found the box from the Cntrl+F at the bottom of my screen. That is a great work around. Thank you again for your help.

          You're welcome. If you don't like the new Firefox UI you can always go back to the classic version from a few years ago by using the Classic Theme Restorer add-on. It lets you use standard toolbar buttons, optionally with text underneath.

            I am okay with it except for that search function.
            By the way, are you still getting traffic from Flipboard? I got over 100,000 page views quickly, and then it just died off. Since I have internet access again, I have been posting some of my articles that were on HP, and have since been moved, and no one is even reading them. Is it possible to be banned for over-promotion, like on Reddit, and not even know about it?
            I open the page up every day to see if there are any news or dog articles I want to read, but no longer think it is worth the effort to post there.

              I posted quite a few hubs after they were shifted to the niche sites, but only received a few views for each of them, so I reckon it's possible to be shadow banned or maybe they've blacklisted the sites. However they did say (was it last year that we got lots of traffic?) there was no problem posting lots of links to the same site, but maybe they've changed their policy on that. In any case I have posted links to content from elsewhere, but traffic is practically nil at present to older flips.
