My default search setting keeps reverting back to Yahoo after I reset my computer. Closing Firefox keeps the one I change it to but restarting the computer changes it.

I can't open the history sidebar. The "Show your History" option opens it's tab fine (the drop-down that says "Show History Sidebar", "Clear Recent History..." ect.). But, when clicking on the "Show History Sidebar", nothing comes up. I can use the "Show All History" option but the sidebar doesn't open for some reason.

Make search bar recommend websites for words typed in without going to search engine

Members,

Here's my dilemma:

When I type a new word in address bar (a word that I've never search for before or opened any website with) the only option I get is to go to search engine page

I want Firefox to show me complete url of words that I type in address bar, irrespective of that word being searched for in past or not.

For example: I never searched for or opened www.yahoo.com, when I type Yahoo in search bar I get option to go to a search engine. I want Firefox to give me option to go to www.yahoo.com

Also, if I type Yaho (not Yahoo) for the very first time in browser, it should automatically give me options like www.yahoo.com

Is this possible?

When I want to search for something on a website, I hit CTRL-F which activates full-screen mode. I would like to know this shortcut can be reprogrammed to search for something within a page instead of activating full-screen. I tried searching this community and on-line for this information but could not find it. Thank you for your time. I use Mozilla FireFox 67.0.4.

I hate hate hate the "awesome bar." I want to use it for searches with my default search engine and NOT with whatever search engine I happened to use last.

There used to be an extension for this but I believe it was obsoleted with some previous Firefox "upgrade."

Instead of having to change my search engine every time I want to search, is there a key combo to change the current search engine back to the default - i.e., to reactivate the default search engine?

I saw the keyboard shortcuts document (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly). It does not do what I want, I do not want to scroll through my list of installed search engines, I just want to jump to the default.

I don't even know why they call it the default anymore.

I want Firefox to only use google as the search engine for the top right search dialog. However, whenever I delete all the other search engines using search engine preferences, after a few days it invariably adds youtube search on its own, and eventually others (such as wikipedia).

I do not technically mind having the other search engine button in the popup, but what I really want to get rid of is firefox sometimes randomly sending me to the search preferences page when i type something in the search dialog and hit enter (which seems to coincide with having multiple search engines set). Sometimes it even simply randomly uses youtube search when I want to google.

I know it was remove sometime around version 20.

(For gods sake why springs to mind. I am genuinely curious if someone can answer that question.)

Since then I used the "Keyword.URL Hack!" to bring it back.

Now I find upon a clean install the addon has been removed. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/keywordurl-hack/)

What I want to achieve is having the search bar use the duckduck go search as normal and the address bar use "I'm Feeling Ducky" ("http://duckduckgo.com/&q=! "). I used to be able to do this like this: https://duck.co/forum/thread/1910/i-m-feeling-ducky-firefox-address-bar

Now I can't

I've had this function since firefox version 1.5 or so with google and google I'm feeling lucky and I have edited the keyword.URL since version 4 to keep it.

Seriously it's brilliant. Type ebay > go to ebay, Type facebook > go to facebook etc. for any common site. If I want to search I use the searchbar and get a list of results. Perfect.

Can anyone help me get this back?

Thanks

I get redirected to centurylink page instead of google search results when I put a search word in the url bar. I put in the word smiths. Some words will work by having google search for the word and gives me results. The following link is what comes up. I've tried all option on this site with no luck. I have Firefox 43.0.4 windows 10

When I open a new tab on my firefox 41.0.2 I see a google search and 8 most accessed pages. I wonder if it is possible to set text or parameters to that google search box, like site:sportsexample.com OR site:newsexample.com then I could have a default google search on the right side of address bar and a specific google search on a new tab.

Thanks in advance.

Folks:

I'm running FF on Xubuntu 12.04, have had this issue with having to add search engine each time FF is launched, added my name to the other people who posted about the same issue with my email address, so far no response from the devs. And, as others posted, no "restore previous session" . . . but "History" is retained, so individual sites can be brought up. And, autofill passwrods also works.

Running Ten4Fox in OSX10.4.11 on the same machine, no issues with search engine and restore previous session. Also FF is fine running in MBPro 10.6.8 & 10.9.5 . . . .

Also recent upgrade to FF in Xu 12 did not fix the problem . . . thoughts?

e.e.p.
