Search bar does not close, always active

Veröffentlicht

Hi all,

This problem started tody after few months with firefox- the search bar appaears at bottom of page and never closes. I try to close it and it doesn't react. When trying to type in any web page, the search bar takes over and takes the text I try to type in any other field. I did a complete Virus scan and anti malware sacn with Windows defender, uninstalled Mozilla and still same problem. Also removed all old Mozilla files from %Appdata% etc.

Will be happy to get your advise

What's your computer system and Firefox version?


Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

When the bar's text input area is blank, what does the "placeholder" text say?

  • "Find in page" is the usual text for Firefox's Find bar (Ctrl+f)
  • "Quick find" is the usual text for Firefox's Quick Find bar (/ key outside of text editing areas)
