Okay, so...hopefully somebody here can help me from going, "Mhhmmm! Grrrrrrr!" every time I wanna search something.

    So here's what's up...

I go to my home page, bing.com. I type in a search, and because it pertains to the issue at hand, lets suppose the search was adult oriented, or something that would make you want to change the search safety settings from its default of 'Moderate' to 'Off', as you want it to be. Cool. Great. Sweet, its off, now I can continue.....Buuuuut, no! Nope. See,...{sigh}.....okay, so lets back up a few steps and right now we're at the moment when we had switched 'Moderate' to 'Off'. Okay! So,....now lets say that you want to filter down your search results. So, we navigate over to the right-hand side of the page, we click 'Filter', we select our filter, the pag loads, annnnnd AHHHHHH DAMMIT TO HELL!! It's back set to 'Moderate'. And it will continue to do this when for whatever reason the page needs to reload. Its driving me.......{sigh & steps back}....Ooohh, okay, well.....suffice to say, the issue needs resolving. Like,....NOW! Please.  :-D It almost slipped my mind, but, for the sake of knowing what kind of suggestions you may give,.... Let me just throw out there that I am no 'computer noob'. The last time I went to buy a new desktop computer, I wasn't a member of Camp Cow! What I'm tryin' to say is, I'm no programmer, but I'm quite 'puter knowledgeable. I remember as a kid, getting bored and walking into the den where my dad (former IBM guy) was sitting there, mumbling outloud to himself, "...Wha...? Whaddaya mean, 'Bad command or file name? ...Doesn't make any sense...". I sat down to watch him try & fix the computer, I told 'em I was bored, he said, "Bored, huh? Yeah,....that'll happen sometimes." Gets up from his chair, plants his hand on the backrest, stands up and does this sorta,...two and a half step, 'walk' across the room to the closet, which is like, two feet from me.... Still with his one hand on the chair's back rest, with the other, he reaches up into the closet to the little book shelf in there, grabs a book I've seen him use a number of times before, takes it down, half pulls * half 'back steps' back into his chair, playfully flings his book holding hand toward me. It lands in my lap with a sh-mack! of my pants, and my dad being completely serious, he's not joking in the least says to me, "Here. Read this. It's good to know." The infamous book? The user's manual for MS-DOS 5. ...Hmm,...it might of been 6.2. My dad was teaching me DOS commands when I was 8. Heh!.... I'm sorry, that went a bit longer than I had imagined. Well, I guess I'll chalk it up to, 'Taking the opportunity to tell a 'I remember when' story about my dad. He died last year. November 8th. He was 86. Best dad you could ever know.

 Hey thank you in advance, if you're able to help.  Thanks & take care!

For several days now, tumblr hasn't been working properly on Firefox. The number that pops up to show how any new notifications I've gotten is frozen at 23. I don't get notifications if I get a new ask or to say how many new posts are on the dashboard. I can receive new asks but I cannot answer them and I cannot send them myself. I can receive direct messages, but I can't send them. I've cleared my cache/cookies. I've ended and started several new sessions. I've turned off XKit, Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, and uBlock Origin. None of that has fixed the problem. These issues are only happening on Firefox. I logged in on Microsoft Edge and tumblr worked just fine.

Hello, Can someone please tell me how to stop my "search bar" text from also showing up in my "address bar"? I have search the internet and found all of the following ways that have been suggested that have not worked.

I read that I should set the following to "false" to solve my problem.

1) keyword.enabled 2) browser.fixup.alternate.enabled 3) browser.urlbar.suggest.surches

I have also gone into the settings menu and un-checked everything I could find about suggestions or words or anything else being added to the address bar. The only thing that should show up in and address bar is................you guessed it: AN ADDRESS!  :-) Thanks so much for your help.

I really appreciate the help. Mark

This is a two-fold question.

Firstly, I was unable to import my auto-fill addresses and credit cards from Chrome and I had to manually add them to Firefox. Is it even possible to import addresses and credits into Firefox??

Second, and most importantly, the auto-fill feature in FireFox does not work. Contrary to other entries in this forum, the credit card field will show me the dropdown of options and fill - but names and address fields will not. The feature is turned on in settings (as shown in attached) and I even restarted my computer. How can I get these fields to auto-fill?

I am running FireFox for Windows 10, v96.0.2 (64 bit) and I'm located in the US.

Firefox 96.0.2 home screen color

I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

Long time user of Firefox, and installed latest update and there is something wrong with it. Perhaps someone wrote a bad line of code? After installing the update there are at least 2 problems. One, Safesearch can no longer be turned off. Two, suggestions as you type cannot be turned off, this is extremely annoying as I do not like or use this feature. I cannot use Firefox in this crippled condition and will use another browser for my web searches which are frequent for my research and other project. This is sad as Firefox has been my primary browser almost since it's inception. I have tried to fix this on my own and have only been frustrated and wasted a good bit of time.

The icon comes up in my dash, but is gray and endlessly loading. Not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty my system is compatible. Is there another way? Am I missing something?

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!

When I find-out still being listed, I go back and find only that part remaining checked, I cannot uncheck it, unless I check >>>>>Provide search engines<<<<<.

If also un-check >>>>>Provide search engines<<<<<, nothing at all is checked, still I cannot get >>>>>Show search suggestion ahead of browsing history in address bar history<<<<< to stay un-checked.

I tried to find a save changes button, but cannot. I assume changes are saved automatically, considering all the rest of the changes are as they should be.
