Today the search suggestions on the Google search page stopped working in Firefox (safe mode too) after Firefox update 62.0.2 (64-bit). Regardless of what settings I choose in about:preferences#search I can't make the search suggestions work as before which is showing in the Google page search bar and not in the address or Firefox search toolbar. This is extremely annoying that is making me use Chrome instead of Firefox. My home page is Google search and opening a new window comes with the insertion point for typing text in the Google search bar in the middle of the page not the address bar. I'm using latest version of Firefox today which is Sep 23 2018 and I'm using Windows 7 64bit

Please help!

With recent updates FF asks for proxy authentication twice or more

Since two updates ago FF started to ask for proxy authenticaton twice or more, before last updates it was asking for it only once. The proxy signon request is "The proxy moz-proxy://xxx.xxx.xxx.xx:**** is requesting a username and password..." To be more precise I have a signon request when I click on a website icon and then I have an additional request when I type the first character in the google search bar (this happens only after the recent updates). If I try to write something in the URL edit box instead of google search bar I get multiple proxy signon request, quite every typed character! It's very frustrating... The NTLM proxy is not on the same domain of the windows user. I have tried changing all the possible settings without any effect, I tried to set: - network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris - network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris - network.negotiate-gsslib - network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris to the proxy domain without effect and signon.autologin.proxy is set to true. I have also tried to reset FF and to remove all the plugins but the problem persisted. Please could you help me to find a solution to this problem? For me should be fine to have the first proxy signon request as it was until few weeks ago before the last two updates. Thank you

The (german) help page about search suggestion does not tell me from where I get those suggestions. Is it a Mozilla service? Google? The default search engine (from the settings)?

Actually, I would expect or prefer that if choose a search engine during typing, that I get suggestions from this site. But I guess, this is not the case. So which engine gets used?
