Everytime Firefox wants me to add something as search engine. For example I open YouTube and in the address bar it says ADD YOUTUBE. I cannot share screenshot because it just says uploading and not uploading anything from all my devices.

You can CSS code in the userChrome.css file in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder to hide this context menu item. See: /questions/1350423 How do I turn this add website to search suggestion?


.menuseparator-add-engine, .context-menu-add-engine {display:none !important;}

More info about userContent.css and userChrome.css in case you are not familiar: *https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html

In Firefox 69 and later you need to set this pref to true on the about:config page to enable userChrome.css and userContent.css in the chrome folder.
