How to stop Firefox suggesting "Search with Google" or "Search with Amazon"

I'm using 83.0b6 (64-bit) with both an address bar and search bar. Recently, if I type a g into the address bar the second suggestion is "search with google directly from the address bar. Typing an a does the same thing for amazon. Search suggestions are turned off. Top sites are unchecked in the address bar settings. All Firefox home content is unchecked in settings.

Is it possible to remove these "search with" suggestions from the address bar drop down? Thanks.

I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

A few days ago Firefox automatically updated and destroyed all my logins and passwords and a huge amount beside. Yes, there was blurb about how to find them which involved a file which did not exist on my system and the whole was not comprehensible.

I did ask for help but got nothing

Somehow, the next day my system had gone back to the earlier setup. Now Firefox wants me to update AGAIN!

Given my experience how can I trust Firefox not to destroy my data?

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.

Gail

Hello,

One website gives me a failed secure connection:

An error occurred while connecting to www.cdkeypt.pt. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This error is in Firefox but this site doesn't work in any browser

I restart the pc when it re-enters the desktop if i open the browser before the computer fully starts the site works fine which makes me conclued that something is interfering with it and it most be an update or something because i didn't install anything new, but what? it is only this site that doesn't work all the others are working fine.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks

Hello. If you want to use the "video downloadhelper" extension, then you will be offered to download an additional program to your computer and install it. I used VirusTotal and found some dangerous software. I found in Google what kind of virus it is and after reading information about it, I did not want to install this program. I think it can be dangerous for other users as well. See screenshots below.

So earlier I downloaded Firefox for my Macbook Air and made the change from Chrome to Firefox. I followed all the instructions online of transferring data from Chrome to Firefox and all seemed great. I just restarted my computer because I was having issues with my internet, and went to reopen everything again. Firefox isn't saved like a normal application like it should, it's still acting like I'm installing it from the .dmg each time. Also, it hasn't saved any of the transferred data/settings I did earlier today. I have no idea what's going on?

What happened to the Arial Black font? It suddenly disappeared from the list of fonts that appear in Tools >> Options >> Language and Appearance.

Due to vision problems, I require a bold font. Mozilla has now made it almost impossible for me to use Firefox. Does anyone know of a workaround to this problem?

also, a FYI: Removal of this font violates the Americans With Disabilities law.

The other day a few programs got downloaded by accident so I went to Control (Windows 10) and deleted them. I recall at the time that it also added an add on or two in my Firefox Browser.

A couple of things are not working normally when I do a Google search with Firefox so I thought I should go back and delete the add ons that went into my Firefox which I didn't want.

But when I now go to tools and down to add ons all I get is a blank page.

I suspect the problem can be answer by deleting Firefox from my computer and downloading from the start but that will delete all the add ons that I have in the past put into Firefox and I cannot remember them all except Add Block, Webmail Ad Blocker and Adblock Plus.

Can someone please advise me but remember I am old and not at all computer savvy so any help will have to be in very basic description or guide.

Please ???????

Just installed the latest version of FF (82). Couple of questions I don't see answered in the knowledgebase:

- I have all the font settings set to Arial or sans serif. However, some webpages, such as the NY Times, still show up in a serif font. How do I override that?

- My bookmarks aren't showing on the Bookmarks toolbar--it's blank. (I imported them in HTML from another browser.) The toolbar is on, but no bookmarks. Anyone know why?

- The bookmark icons are all the same gray circle. They change to the appropriate icon for the site if I click on them, but I can't click on all of my hundreds or thousands of bookmarks. Any way to get them to show the correct icon for each site?

Thanks.

On some sites, the Page Up key does not work properly or consistent. For example, on this site:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

When I page down to the bottom and page back up, it takes 19 Page Down keystrokes to get to the bottom. It take one to four Page Ups to get back to the top, and each of the Page Ups varies in distance.

This happens on some other web sites, but not all. It happens on this forum. Sometimes it takes more Page Up keypresses to get to the top than it did Page Downs to get to the bottom.

I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Windows 7. It happens in safe mode. It does not happen on Linux Mint.

Is there a setting or change I can make to get this to work properly?

Hi there, I have a new computer working under Ubuntu. When using Firefox I often have a problem with the characters which appear when I open webpages or even read pdf documents. This isssue does not seem to happen in a very consistent way (some websites will appear correctly one day and incorrectly another day). I include below a screenshot as example. The problem does not seem to appear with chromium... If you have any idea about how to fix this I would be very grateful Thanks Michael
