I recently purchased a 2in1 computer. I installed Firefox and everything runs smoothly when I'm in desktop mode. Everything works fine in tablet mode... However, if I switch back to desktop mode, I get this weird glitch (see the linked image). It's like I tried typing something in the address bar, except that I didn't.

There is no way to remove this search unless I completely close Firefox and then reopen it (which is kind of a pain to do). None of the links shown are clickable either. Seems like this is just purely a visual glitch.

Does anybody know how to fix and/or how to avoid this bug?

Firefox version: 65.0.1 (64-bit) OS: Windows 10 Home version 1809 Reproducibility: 100%

I would like to hide a specific website from my search suggestions in the address bar permanently. I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-awesome-bar-suggestions, but these either don't work permanently or remove everything about the website. I want to be able to continue using the site normally but not have it show up in the address bar when I type something in. Is this possible?

The problem is that my user name password for an account stays on the signin page after I exit the page. After the password, there is a little slash that looks sorta like a comma, but thicker and darker. I dont want my password and username to come up without typing it in when I sign in to the account. How do I put a stop to this?

When I reload Firefox after my computer crashes or freezes and needs to be restarted, Firefox will offer to restore my previous session. Half the time it works perfectly, but the other half it loads tabs from almost a week prior. There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason as to why one happens over the other.

Sites that rely on embeded videos don't load properly. The videos usually appear as an "Unable to Connect" error, like the screenshot I uploaded as a random example. This doesn't seem to impact sites like YouTube, which host content themselves.

I tried running Firefox in safe mode, but this didn't change anything.

I updated a few days ago and ever since mint.com will not launch. Worked with tech support at Mint and they say it's not their platform. Mint will launch ok on Chrome and the mint app works so something has gone wrong with firefox. Mint suggested I uninstall and reinstall but I am hesitant because I have thousands of bookmarks. Has anyone else had this issue? I am using Windows 10 on a brand new HP laptop.
