FireFox ESR 68.11.0 - 64bit Windows 8.1

Start typing a URL in the address bar ... a search bar drops down automatically and begins searching. What is the real fix for this annoying and insecure behavior?

There are dozens if not hundreds of search posts on this topic, most are specific to a particular version of FireFox. Developers, I shudder every time I update the program because I know I will be spending hours or days on a new configuration. Apparently, developers have cleverly eliminated the settings that disable this feature.

This drop-down search bar is annoying and unnecessary. A child might find it useful. Simply put, the user should be able to turn it on or off in the "Options" section. We don't like playing with your about.config settings, or adding code. If I type an address in the URL bar, I do not want the URL searched arbitrarily. Nor do I want to see a new pop-up bar. Please make the use of these "features" optional.

Please create a new general information topic "Removing the automatic URL search" and put this topic to rest once and for all. This is an excellent argument for a paid version of FireFox. I would gladly pay for a clean program rather than waste my time tweaking every single new version.

Thank you!

I have AT&T internet just started 24 hours ago...i get this message from time to time???....and i am not sure why???


Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at support.mozilla.org.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Where to I find the time that I open a website with Firefox? For example, I go to Verizon Support, and the Verizon Chat Agent is trying to find a solution. I have waited over an hour, and conveniently for Verizon, they cannot even let me download the chat in text or email. I'd like to know how much time I spend with Verizon (website) trying to get a solution to my problem.

How can I do a search on the Mozilla and Firefox web sites (in help or community) using AND search terms instead of the default OR searches.

Specifically, I am trying to search for "PDF" AND "Search" -- for problems with finding things in PDF files. But the search, as performed, finds hundreds of pages with "PDF" OR "Search", so mostly irrelevant.

How to get FF to open a saved session from an older version

Hi. Here's how it happened. I've using FF portable for a long time. I recently updated from v.69.0.1 to v.78.0.2. But the newer version installed in a different folder and now I can run both versions. Yesterday I had the v.69 working with around 500 tabs open. Suddenly it crashed and then freezed. Luckily, I had managed to save my current working session by accessing Tab Session Manager addon. But when I go to Tab Manager Session and click to open this saved session, FF v.69 will keep freezing, no matter what I do. (Tab Session Manager has another option „Export”, but I don't know to use it or what it does.) I will quit using FF v.69. But how can I get the new v.78 to open this 500-tab session? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Firefox Add-On Identification When Hovering

I have Firefox 79 on Windows 8.1 but even before the latest FF update I have been having trouble with the mouse pointer identifying the Firefox Add-Ons and Extensions when pointing to them or placing it over them. It used to work perfectly but now it doesn't. It used to show each of their names. Not now and it makes things much harder. All it does is darken the Add-On into a square but that's all. On other web browsers it does show their name when hovering over an Add-On with the mouse pointer. Does anyone know what has caused this and how I can bring back that function so that I can see what each Add-On's name is when I hover over it? Thank you!

Using google to search online I have started to get this page almost every time I type in a search word. (About this page

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

IP address: 92.40.187.37 Time: 2020-08-01T13:05:50Z URL: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=dvla+tax)

then I have to go thru a series of pictures choosing squares with traphic lights or buses to prove I am not a robot.

the only thing that has changed in my house is that I am now connecting using my iphone as a hotspot. this does not happen if I use Google Chrome as my browser.

Thanks

Steve

In Firefox 79.0 running under Windows 8.1 I see the URL of a link when I mouse over it. I have seen several complaints about this as well as workarounds to get rid of it. However, I find it very useful as I like to know what I am clicking on before I do so. Unfortunately, this URL preview does not appear in Firefox 79.0 running under Ubuntu Studio 18.04. I have not knowingly overridden this feature, nor can I find a userChrome.css file on the system. How can I get it back in Firefox running under Ubuntu?

I have had a few problems ordering from sites (Adidas, Nike and another 1 or 2 I've forgotten) where I enter card details, get taken to the card verification page which then flips back to the basket page or the site's front page. I never get the order confirmation page or a confirmation email and the shops confirm no order has been made. I am really worried about this because I am putting in card info etc and it looks like it's going through but it doesn't. The pages are HTTPS. When I try on a different browser it works perfectly. It's quite frustrating because other sites are fine and I don't want to have to disable everything or use a different browser when I want to quickly buy something. The add ons I have installed are: Cookie Autodelete Facebook Container I Don't Care About Cookies UBlock Origin

I have standard tracking protection set in the options.

I understand the usual answer is to try disabling add ons one by one but to be honest I don't want to keep entering my card details to have to test it. Is there a better way to check what is causing the problem? Is this an issue with the sites or something to do with cookies/add ons?

When I go to a website that requests access to my webcam and/or my microphone (and I grant it), a tiny popup comes up over the tab bar. That's fine. But when I close the tab using either or both, the popup doesn't go away. It doesn't contain the mic and/or cam icon(s) anymore, just the Firefox logo, but it doesn't go away and, oh my, it is so annoying.

The attached images are (1) the popup when I am using my mic in a tab, and (2) the popup when I am no longer using neither mic nor cam anywhere but the popup is still visible.

I can only remove the Firefox-icon-only popup by restarting Firefox!

How do I solve this? Is this a bug?
