How do I get Firefox to append www. and .com to my URL inputs?

For years I've been able to input a website keyword (let's say "cnn" like in an old report I ran across) and the "www." and ".com" portions would be added without my typing them. Some time ago, this started to fail. Why?

I tried about:config changes that were said to work with the old "cnn" problem report but nothing helps for me.

Also, I use the local Windows Hosts file to give my router a quick reference name to get into it. That too has worked for years but began to fail last year. Inconvenient. The best I could track this down, it has something to do with forced DNS lookups and skipping the old Hosts file. If so, any work around to get my system simplicity back?

Help is appreciated. I liked the challenge of computer geekdom 30 years ago but I'm getting too old for this, well, you know the old saying.

Recently I've been getting searching, and when I click on a wikipedia result, it opens as a mobile format page.

I haven't noticed this with any other websites.

Any suggestions?

Hi everyone,

I'm encountering an issue specifically on MediaWiki sites, like this one, where the "Special:UserRights" page behaves strangely. Whenever I try to type in the input area, the browser suggests "Manage Password" even though it's not a relevant action on this page.

I'm using Firefox 123.00 and this happens on both my Linux (Ubuntu 22.04) and Windows 11 OS. I don't have any password manager extensions installed.

While this might seem like a minor inconvenience, it's quite disruptive to the workflow when managing user rights on MediaWiki sites.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there a known solution or workaround to prevent the "Manage Password" suggestion from appearing on the "Special:UserRights" page?

Thanks in advance for any help!

The company's platform allowed for email marketing firms to submit lists to the company, which would verify the lists for valid email addresses."

I have been working on a locked down version of Firefox, and through userChrome.css and mozilla.cfg, I have been able to do get it where it behaves mostly as intended. We are looking for a way to disable the ability to print to PDF within the print dialog in Firefox. There are concerns about the ability to access the dropdown selections within the save as dialogs, that could allow users to access files they should not have access. We don't want to outright disable the ability to print, as printing to a real printer does not cause any issues. Is it possible through the mozilla.cfg or userChrome.css to remove the option to save as a PDF from the Firefox printer dialog?

Thanks for your help!

I don't want to be asking this question in what is completely incorrectly termed a "community". Other users don't know anything. Firefox should have actual support. But I have no choice.

I am absolutely sick of this. Firefox crashes at least once every 24 hours. No reason no message it just freezes.

This is on top of the fact that every time an update is available Firefix stops working properly to force you to install the update.

On my Laptop I always get the Message "Der Browser wird durch Ihre Organisation verwaltet" (No. 1). To change this I should go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE via REGEDIT. Then to SOFTWARE / POLICIES / ???. There should be an entry MOZILLA or FIREFOX. I dont have this (No. 2). So I should go to FIREFOX "about:config" and there I should change "security.enterprise_roots.enabled" from "true" to "false". But it is (the ONLY) setting, which is locked (No. 3).

So I do not know, how I can remove this "Your browser is being managed by your organisation".

Can you help me?? I am my own organisation....
