How do we disable the new URL bar in 77.01? The fix for 75.01 no longer works

The pop-out, mandatory search address bar is crap and everyone hates it, as witnessed by how many people immediately came to ask how to disable it when it was forced on us with 75.01, but the about:config fix of toggling browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus, browser.urlbar.update1, browser.urlbar.update1.interventions, and browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips to false no longer returns the address bar to the way everyone wants it, which is to have a dropdown list of the most recently visited sites.

I don't care what company is paying Mozilla under the table to gain access to users' search terms-- it's Google, Google is paying them for that access-- and I don't care how badly Mozilla needs the money. Turning the address bar into a search box is crapulous browser design, full stop, and I'm uninstalling 77.01 and never updating this browser again if it doesn't get fixed.

Every since i installed the win 10 2004 build, my computers will hang up when i try to open Firefox. The CPU goes to 100 percent and the power level goes to very high. This happens immediately or sometimes within an hour. It tries to open but only gets a white screen and a not responding message in the title bar. I have to reboot the PC's to get them to work. If i don't open Firefox they will work. I have two other computers and the same thing happens on them. I have had to roll back to my last win 10 build 1909 on all three PC's. Anybody else having this problem? Thanks for any suggestions you have

Why is my internet speed so slow in Firefox? Is there anything I can do to speed it up? My speed is 110Mbps faster in Google Chrome. That is doing numerous speed tests on both browsers. I have no extensions or addons running. I have the latest version. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Recent updates are causing problmes with gmail and video sound.

Using URL https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox I keep seeing a not connected, trying again message. Closed tab and opened new one with same URL and just get blank white screen. Works fine on Chrome.

Sound does not work on Youtube or Amazon Prime video sometimes. Reopen same URL in Chrome and all is good again.

BTW, it would be useful if Firefox browser upgrades could be skipped. Sometimes one needs to open a browser in a hurry but no can do because Upgrades seem they are going to upgrade, user wishes dismissed. Maybe updates would be a better word than upgrades. Not as bad a Windows but y'all don't want to be like them, do ya? They are the McDonald's of software, they sell a lot of it but it ain't very good.

Thanks for letting me whine. I will go back to my safe space now...

Buenas. Llevo utilizando Firefox casi casi desde Windows 95. Y siempre ha ido fino y buen, con velocidad, sin problemas y con una experiencia superior casi siempre, al resto de navegadores. Pero desde las últimas actualizaciones de Firefox, ésto ha cambiado. Tengo la versión 76.0.1(64 bits). Y llevo mucho mucho tiempo con problemas, que me han cansado y he decidido que hasta aquí he llegado. Tengo instalados además, Chrome y Edge. Chrome me parece pesado, porque abre un montón de procesos que no pido, no necesito y me ralentizan el ordenador. Edge no me gusta. Sí que lo veo ágil y Microsoft le ha lavado la cara mucho. Pero no me gusta, y no me da confianza. Al contrario de Firefox. Pero arrastro los siguientes problemas, para que veáis lo impertinente que soy: 1. Imposibilidad de instalar complementos, como puede ser por ejemplo, el de LetyShop. 2. Muchas veces, la página no carga. Se queda en blanco, intentando acceder, pero nada. La mayoría de las ocasiones, refresco y funciona. Pero, no es lo suyo. 3. No tengo bloqueadores. No tengo anti-pops, salvo los que pueda tener por defecto Firefox. Mi antivirus tampoco los bloquea. Pero muchas páginas me dicen que no pueden abrir ventanas. Son páginas de trabajo (IBM, por ejemplo) donde no creo que haya código malicioso. Y sin embargo, algo impide que Firefox las abra. Antes, era puntual. Ahora es cansino. 4. De vez en cuando, pierdo la sesión abierta. Si. Tengo muchas ventanas. Pero me es imposible recuperarlas porque no funciona el histórico bien, no hay posibilidad de recuperarla entera, y es cansino tener que ir una a una abriendo. Y en la ayuda... bueno. Llamarle ayuda es un decir. Tontería diría yo, porque quien pone esas cosas, lo ha hecho en una versión prehistórica (no coincide a veces ni las opciones del menú que se indica...) y desde luego, no ha probado lo que predica.

Es una pena. Voy a dar un voto de confianza, porque la verdad, tanto en pc como en el móvil, siempre he usado Firefox. Pero me canso de tanto problema. Espero que esta situación cambie pronto. Mientras, voy a buscar un sustituto, que seguramente será Chrome.

Un saludo.

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

About 1 in every 40 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, it acts like I have clicked UNDER the scroller and starts scrolling down quickly until I release the mouse button. This NEVER happens in Chrome or other programs. It always works properly the next time I drag it.

Potentially related: About 1 in every 75 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, the scroller doesn't stay under my mouse cursor. It moves about half as fast. This makes it impossible for me to scroll to the bottom of the page because my mouse cursor gets to the bottom before the scroller, which means I have to let go and grab the scroller again to finish scrolling down. The scroller always stays with my mouse cursor on the 2nd attempt.

I've attached a pic showing what i'm calling the "scroller"

I have a few special buttons on my keyboard (Calculator / Mail). I've set them (on lxde-rc.xml) to run a simple bash script (Volume up / down using pactl). Unfortunately, I've noticed that only on Firefox hangs when I press these buttons (tested with terminal/slack/IDEs/Chrome, no issues). It's a ~2 seconds hang that prevents me from doing anything (tried scrolling/typing/clicking, nothing).

Any way to see what is actually happening / disable this behavior?
