How do I make it so that when I search with my address bar it ALWAYS uses Google, regardless of what search engine is selected in the search bar? It used to be like this, but a recent Firefox update altered it. Now, when I search with my address bar it uses the search engine selected in the search bar...if I wanted to do that, I would just use the search bar! Any suggestions?

When I watch a video with Mozilla Firefox on sites like YouTube, Google Video or Bing Video in full screen the taskbar shows at the bottom of my screen and doesn't disappear like it does in Internet Explorer. How do I watch videos in full screen without the taskbar showing? It's not a website problem, it's not a Windows problem, it only does this on Mozilla Firefox's browser. All three websites play perfect full screen video on the Internet Explorer browser with no taskbar showing at the bottom..

Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

Usually when I go to search for something, I type directly into the address bar. Most of the time it'll automatically just perform a Google search. Recently, however, the search engine has been changing to Yahoo, which is god-awful. I've looked around on the internet for answers but the address bar search engine, as well as the actual search box next to the address bar, keep setting themselves to Yahoo.

What I've done so far: Every time it switches from Google to Yahoo, I open about:config. I search for Yahoo and these pop up: [IMG]http://i44.tinypic.com/2rc1gyg.png/IMG

The status of the items in bold say "user set," but I haven't set any of those. Usually I reset them all to default, sometimes I will change the 2nd, 4th, and 5th items to Google.

I've also gone through my search bar settings and deleted every search engine except Google (these include Yahoo, Bing, Wikipedia, Ebay, Amazon, etc.). However Yahoo will randomly pop up.

I don't know what's causing it. But it's getting really annoying.

If you know how to solve this once and for all, please help!

Thanks for reading!

June 2013: videos on websites start playing without my permission, how to stop this?

What I tried: I uninstalled Adobe Flash (disabling Flash add-on didn't work), existing "stop autoplay" add-ons are no longer working according to reviews, tried solution described in "How can I stop videos on websites from automatically playing?" (Type in the address bar: about:config Then search for: plugins.click_to_play Double click and it will be set to true) - doesn't stop videos from playing either. Sent feedback to FireFox about the issue.

From what I had read in reviews, this is not only about Flash: YouTube disabled add-ons and searches for anything that can play videos installed in Windows, including using HTML5 for this. Have no information how other websites do it.

How to stop this? Thank you.

A new version of Conduit has hijacked my FireFox browser, among other things. Every time I open a new tab it comes up in the conduit search engine rather than my default of Google. Any mistyping of a url sends me to bing via conduit. I used to be able to get into about:config and fix such problems, but now any attempt to do that simply sends me to bing. This is a horrible mess, and keeps happening, and FF users need a way to block these conduit takeovers.

I would like to be able to completely refresh all scripts, images and code (absolutely everything on the page) when I click refresh for a tab. I am a web designer and firefox often serves up old content, regardless of whether I manually empty the cache or click refresh multiple times on a page. I tried some chanegs in the config file too which I saw for earlier versions of firefox but they don't seem to have helped. Any suggestions similar to cmd-shift-r that force a complete refresh of a page would be very much appreciated. Even if there is a way to turn caching off completely so that surfing the web was slower that would be preferable to be able to test site updates correctly. I use firebug so if there is an option in there for forcing full refresh of pages that could also help. I am using the most current version of firefox (43.0.4). Thanks

Yesterday I noticed that my mouse wheel no longer scrolls from anywhere on a web page. On some pages it works well but not on others. It's almost as if it hits a blind spot and will no longer scroll. If I move the pointer onto the scroll bar, or near the margin, it usually works there. If I move to a different web page it may work differently. It seems as if the formatting of the page determines whether or not it will scroll. It was not like this two days ago. It's frustrating when you move the wheel and expect the page to scroll and it doesn't. If I restart FF in safe mode the mouse wheel scrolls properly.
