Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

I am currently using Firefox version 77.0 in windows 10. I noticed few things that when I try to open some of the PDFs it shows "This PDF document might not be displayed correctly" and just blank white page shows up (image included).

I use few extensions which I disabled them completely when I read PDF but still I am unable to access PDF. While same PDFs are easily readable by other browsers like Chrome or Edge.

Please let me know is it a bug or there is some settings to tweak. Thanks in advance.

cannot log in to my Bank of Montreal online banking!!!

I've used Firefox for years, and for years I daily do my online banking.

Now all of a sudden, without any warning I cannot log into my bank account. I've tried clearing history, etc. I've tried the about:config change...

I can log in fine with Microsoft Edge.

My wife uses Firefox and she can log into the bank. I suspect that is because Firefox has not updated on her computer.

This is maddening, to put it mildly.

Hello, I just restarted my PC after a Windows 10 update (Windows Update). Launching Firefox from the task bar no longer worked (link removed). So I launched Firefox from the start menu. A completely blank version of Firefox appeared on the screen, as if I had just installed it. No more favorites, no more extensions, no more customization. All Firefox installation files in the AppData directory are dated today. How can a Windows update remove a Firefox installation? Is it possible to recover favorites and bookmarks? Thank you for your answers. Regards,

I am still using FF 58 because it allows me to delete recent history and cookies. For some reason, often when I reboot the computer. FF switches me to V72. and I have to go thru hell to get 58 back up and running. I love to keep my history for sites I have visited, and v58 allows me to delete everything for the day, 4 hours, 2 hours or one hour.

72 does not appear to give me that option. How can I delete only recent history and cookies, and keep the rest?

I have 3 email addresses, one of which is a gmail address. The other two get checked in the Firefox Monitor, but when I click verify in the gmail acount email, I get this error: This email address is not subscribed to Firefox Monitor. What does this mean? The other two addresses have been checked and the breaches for them have been resolved. For some reason, I can't get the gmail address verified to see if it has been breached. Any clues as to why this is so?

Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

I just did an upgrade to 81.0.2. All of my bookmarks disappeared. Fortunately I was able to retrieve the last window but I am unable to create new bookmarks. Whether I right click on the tab to bookmark or Ctrl+D to bookmark, I get a window that says New Bookmark with options of Save or Cancel. However, the only option I can choose is Cancel. This is not good.

I have no idea what's causing it.

I've added a screenshot of all the crash reports that I've send over the past 6 days. Hope this helps.

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.lowes.com/" on this server.

Reference #18.c73a2f17.1602891096.942db71

I tried what I could find online and that info was from 5 years ago. Its advice was to clear cached websites which I did (& cookies). The first time, cache only, it did let me on but when I tried to search the site I jump to Access Denied again. Same with both cookies and cache.
