How do I remove the search address bar at the top?

Up until a few weeks ago, I was able to type in the google search page which was located in the middle of the search page. Now there is a bar below my tabs where all the typed words go. Not a fan!

Sometimes my computer crashes after starting Firefox for the first time each day. Once the restart completes I don't have problems for the rest of the day.

In Facebook I find I suddenly can't attach image or links to a post. I remove them and the post button becomes active again but even if I try to edit the post after with an attachment the button is blue but is not clickable. When I go to another browser everything works just fine.

One dashboard I use for my business now loads without any content on the page but it loads perfectly fine in another browser. All of these problems started with this newer version of Firefox.

Is there some setting I need to adjust, should I roll back or is it time to move on?

Some websites have this text box under their articles to write a comment and post it on Facebook (see the screenshot). But for that to happen, first you must login to your Facebook account. The problem is that when I click the button "login to post", nothing happens - as if I didn't click it at all. I suspect the reason for that are the integrated anti-tracking options in Firefox 89. So the question is: how do I get this plugin to work in Firefox 89?

P.S. Until a month ago I was temporarily using Chromium as default browser and there the FB plugin had no issues. Chromium has no anti-tracking options which is why I think this function in Firefox is the reason for the FB plugin not to work.

I have Firefox on two computers. This website works on one, but not the other. Please advise what troubleshooting steps to try next.

https://bannergress.com/banner/self-similar-across-scale-24c4 The box in the upper left should be scrolling to display the whole picture. The problem is with every page of this site; I selected this particular page as an example.

scrolls on this computer: desktop Windows 10 Pro v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1

doesn't scroll on this computer: laptop Windows 10 Home v 20H2 Firefox v 89.0.1


What I've tried on the laptop so far (none of these solved the problem):

tried in a private browsing window

tried in Troubleshoot Mode

uninstalled Firefox deleted default profile folder (that was the only profile) deleted profiles.ini reinstalled Firefox

For the past few days I have been having problems accessing google services. Sometimes gmail will load for me but then later on I will get this message "The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected." After which it is impossible for me to access gmail.

Furthermore, google search also will not work for me. I cannot search from the address bar or when I go to the google website. As well as this I cannot search on YouTube.

I have tried clearing my cookies and cache multiple times as suggested by most posts. This has not fixed the issue.

Any help would be much appreciated as I use these websites very often and this is really an issue for me.

Every time I "tab out" to another app on my phone, and tab back in yo Firefox, it causes the page to reload.

I'm using a Galaxy S20+, so there is no shortage of RAM or any system specification - and this issue does not happen with Samsung Internet or Google Chrome.

Can this be fixed - else I will have to return to Samsung Internet.

It's very annoying having to redo forms etc. just because I switched back and forth between apps.

I downloaded Firefox 89.0.1 via Microsoft Edge from the regular mozilla.org site.

I was redirected to this site after the download started: https://cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com/builds/firefox-stub/de/win/[...]/Firefox%20Installer.exe

I was confused when I saw, that the sha256 checksum mismatched with the one in the repository. Also after multiply downloads from the mentioned site, I recognized all installation files had different checksums.

Is this a bug or a malicious firefox download? Or smth else?

Thanks in advance.
