I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I am using Firefox 83.0 64-bit on a Windows laptop.

I was hoping to prototype some website code locally (using the Windows directories) prior to testing with a proper website.

I have been unable to get sessionStorage (or localStorage) to pass variables to another page unless they're in the same Windows directory. For instance, if I create 2 very simple and cut-down test files: Test1.html and Test2.html, that contain the following JavaScript:

Test1.html window.sessionStorage.setItem ("html", element.innerHTML); alert ("posting " + window.sessionStorage.getItem ("html")); window.open ("Test2.html", "_self");

Test2.html var html=window.sessionStorage.getItem ("html"); alert ("received " + html);

then it works if the two files are in the same directory. But if Test2 is in a subdirectory, and I change the open call to:

window.open (".\\subdir\\Test2.html", "_self");

then it receives null instead of the HTML that Test1 is sending. I am guessing that there is some code that is treating the change of directory as a cross-origin issue, even though they're under the same root directory.

I appreciate that the specification may be a bit vague in this non-Web situation, but Chrome does what I would expect. I thought someone might want to take a look to check if this was an oversight or deliberate.

I hid my navigation bar, bookmarks bar, stumbleupon bar, and menu bar to make the internet showing screen larger, and i cannot get any of the bars back now. I tried right clicking, but all that does is ask me if I want to open a new tab.

I have stored over 120 bookmarks and deleted the names to save space on the quick bookmark bar. Consequently, since the bard got so full, if a bookmark or folder did have desciptive text next to it, the text would collapse so that just the icon shows. If I hover over the icon, the test reappears. These days, I've found it simpler to classify my bookmarks into folders, HOWEVER, I don't know which folder is which because the text next to the folder icons remain collapsed until I hover the mouse over them. I want to customize it so the text is frozen next to the icon or folder. How do I do this? Please help and fore thank you!
