When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

6/7/21 Firefox just did an update on my computer. Before, the tool bar at the top was dark gray and the tabs were easily distinguishable. Now the entire area above the URL is light gray. I would prefer more contrast between the tool bar and the tabs. What happened? Thank you.

Hello Everyone - Today the background colour of both tabs bar and search bar changed to a wishy-washy pale blue which makes it much harder to read anything there. I am not aware that I have changed any setting myself. And I dont recall any FF update yesterday or today... I have looked through all the FF "settings" options and found nothing relevant there. Is there maybe an option buried somewhere to change the background colour? Oh, and I am not a geek or a nerd, so cannot understand any nitty-gritty stuff! Thank you for your time.

Does anyone know any way to force Firefux [Ver 89.0.2 64bit] to stop the repetitious and constantly annoying pop-up that flashes on open, restart, or randomly appears, reminding me to once again update the apparently flawed software. I just updated yesterday!!!! Can I not trust that the programmers know what they're doing and that the system can actually work as expected without the intrusive proof that they screwed up again?! This is the worst business decision to make these things interfere with my workload. Every firefuxn day there's a new update alert!!! It makes me not trust this browser...

Hello I have recently updated the photography section of my website, which you can see at http://www.dominicsimpson.co.uk/photography.html

There are 100 photos on there, yet Firefox is missing the first few. I am baffled as to why this is happening. If you view the page in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you'll see that it displays all of the photos, yet Firefox only displays some of them.

I've checked the HTML and CSS, and they validate correctly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards Dominic

Some of my add-ons have disabled themselves and there is no option to enable. I found a potential solution at this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276602 but wanted to clarify what to delete in the Profile Folder. I can't continue that thread because it is too old apparently.

The help says to: Delete all extensions* fileS and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry. There is only ONE FILE starting with extensionS. That would be extensions.json

It says to delete extensions* fileS. Could someone please clarify if I'm supposed to delete: extension-preferences.json extension-settings.json extensions Folder

Thank you!

It shows perfectly well on the screen and prints properly with other browsers (Chrome, Safari). With Firefox, it shows properly on the screen but not when printing.

I keep the "Recommended by Pocket" section collapsed throughout most of the workday to prevent distractions when opening new tabs. Recently I've found the section can't be collapsed anymore. I know that I can disable Pocket on the homepage, but I don't want to do that. I still want it available for me to take breaks or when I'm finishing up with something. The collapse feature was ideal for me.

This may sound petty, but it's a real issue. I would rather stop using Pocket than let it distract me all day. I could write a bookmarklet to deal with it, but not everyone has that option.

Is there still any way to toggle this section? If not, why was this feature removed, and can this feature be brought back?

I don't understand Firefox and Windows 10 settings well enough to know where to look for a setting that may have been changed. I rebooted the computer and restarted Firefox but the problem persists.
