Hi,

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.

So in firefox 89, i put the parameter "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" to false. And it worked.

With firefox 90, it dit not work anymore.

How can i retrieve the previous behaviour ?

Thanks.

The "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" pref should still work in Firefox 90.0 (works for me).

Did you make sure that the pref is still set to false ?

Yes, it is still to false :/. I did not change others parameters.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window

i follow the solution 1 of /kb/reset-preferences-fix-problems .

My firefox is completed reset and the problem is still here when i put the parameter "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" back to false.

The focus is still taken by the adress bar, and not the central search bar into the page. :/
