As the Title suggests.

My Add-Ons are all removed from my Toolbar and stop functioning whenever I set my History settings to "Never Remember History."

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the Add-On's, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox. But none of this works.

I want to be able to use my Add-On's AND have Firefox not remember my history. It used to work before, but now it just won't let me.

Any suggestions?

After installing the most recent update of Firefox, Firefox will no longer open with the designate homepage. Instead, it opens with a blank page. When I click on the Homepage icon in the toolbar, the designated home page will open, but it will not open automatically when Firefox is initially launched. Until the update, whenever Firefox was launched it would open with the homepage, which is what I would now like for it to do. I've checked the applicable settings and they are as they always were. Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Steve

i have tried every about:config option there is on google and i still can't disable the expanding URL bar (where once you've entered a asearch, heading back to the bar expands a menu on the right side with a privacy icon, a drop down menu, a pocket icon, and the bookmark icon). very irritating.

i have seen options regarding the userChrome file but i'm inexperienced and probably messing something up.

any help would be much appreciated.

Why does Firefox remove my searchbox with every update?

<rant> It is just so tiresome to repetitively figure out how to restore my searchbox after major updates.

I *don't* want to use the combined address/search tool. I use the search box as intended with about 8 search tools in the select field to choose from.

It is just arrogance on FF's part to remove it over and over.</rant>

Hi,

I really really really hate the new address bar. In the last update it appeared in my browser and I had been able to make it go away with changing the following settings to false;


   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

I'm not sure if something updated between last night's shutdown and this morning's bootup but the ugly giant bar is back again and when I checked those settings in config they're all set to false. I tried toggling them true to false again but I can't get the old style bar back. I don't really want to revert to an older version as I know that's not secure. Does anyone have a way to get the bar back to how it used to be or is it time to use another browser?

Thanks!

So after updating to Firefox 77.0, I have noticed that despite having browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon set to false, it Firefox insists on placing the audio icon in my tabs regardless.

Is there a way to get rid of it, perhaps with CSS or something?

Hi,

I had applied the settings to disable the new urlbar features, but as of version 77 these no longer work.

I absolutely hate this change; it does nothing useful, it interferes with viewing the page, and it very much feels to me like change for the sake of change.

If someone can pass this on to whoever makes these unilateral decisions :

Don't make changes to the user interface that are not optional. How do they not understand that changing the UI for hundreds of millions of people is not a good idea?

So my question is, how do I disable the new urlbar "features" and return to a plain static one?
