Hello Firefox Community, I updated Firefox yesterday. I am using windows 10 and the directions to pin the tool and title bars is not working. When the cursor is near the top of the screen a tool bar pops up, yet the title and bookmark bars are still missing. I would like all three bar visible at all times. What do I change to pin the bars to the top of my screen? Thank you, Scottie

V. 85.1.3 (Build #2015792281) When I try to go in a link in a search in a website in Firefox it will open a new page instead opening the app, such as Quora, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. I have "Open links in apps" ON in settings, but it isn't working. Is there something I can do to fix this? It seems this same problem comes up every few versions.

it's just a blank page. how do i access about:config?


while i'm here i'll take the opportunity to say how much i hate the new firefox. it was perfectly fine the way it was. the old firefox doesn't work now but ignoring that it was an excellent browser. now look at what they've done to it. never mind the privacy stuff. everything's all hidden away under multiple clicks, stuff you used to be able to do in a click now has to be done manually. why have they done all this? who is it benefitting? it's not even faster like they're advertising it as. i only finally installed this because the old one's finally kicked it. i want the old one back. where are all the add ons? one i used to use that was totally indispensible doesn't work on this one. and where's about:config?

Recently, I updated Firefox (as it regularly bothers me to do so) and it added an annoying new feature that appears whenever I type anything into the address bar. It used to just provide search suggestions from my list of bookmarks, but now below the list of search options is a separate segment with "This time, search with:" followed by multiple icons--in my case, Google (my default browser), bookmarks, tabs, history, and settings. And you know how when you're sometimes typing something you want to find and the desired result is toward the bottom of the list, so instead of pressing the down arrow key to get to it, you press the up arrow to start from the end…well now, when I try that on the address bar, it cycles through each icon before letting me get to the list's end.

I know it sounds like a petty complaint, but it's annoying and inconvenient to have to do it each and every time since it's habitual to cycle from top to bottom or vice versa on basically every other search bar. I went the route of "Settings > Options > Search > Search Shortcuts" to see if I could get rid of these icons, but just like how it doesn't let you get rid of search engines when you only have one on the list, it doesn't give you an option to remove these superfluous icons.

These Mozilla dumbasses seem to lack foresight and/or consideration with the way they limit user preferences. Can anybody give me any alternative solutions? Please spare me the snide answers like "switch to Chrome" (already considering it). If there's a way to simply circumvent these icons in the address bar rather than getting rid of them entirely, that would be more that enough: I just don't know how to go about it. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my submission/rant.
