Hello -

As I stated in the subject line, "Cannot Stop Updated (Current) Version of Firefox From Diverting Search Engine Search to URL Pane" I have been doting over this for an hour. I have set the respective about:config settings to the recommended setting. (I forget off the top of my head what the string was at the moment) But I did as directed. Refreshed the about:config. Logged off the Firefox browser. Cleared all the caches manually. (i.e., even though I have Firefox to clear everything when I close the browser) Restarted the browser. Problem persists. I DON'T like searching out of the URL pane! I like it like it has ALWAYS been prior: Using the search engine (I currently am using Google) search pane.

I have added NO browser extensions to cause this either by the way.

It looks like I lost my former connection. My issue is the loss of some functionality using FireFox post June 5, 2021 in Yahoo email and Googlesheets. In the former there is a loss of activities/options, including the ability to block senders and the inability to bring up contact groups for selection. I could do both earlier and can still do so in Edge and on Chrome. In Googlesheets there is a loss of functionality is the ability to change colors of text and "fill". There is also a change in the structure in the ribbons for performing activities. Again I can still do as previously in Edge and on Chrome. I do not seem to be able to load my screen shots and would appreciate your help.

for the past few weeks, I have often gotten the error message belowwhen utilizing Firefox. This occurs on many different sites. I can often just hit the refresh button and the website does come up. I am mainly accessing these websites through my bookmarks. I also get this error message sometimes when using Google Chrome. My Internet security provider is Kaspersky. I cannot recall if I had changed the setting by mistake.thanks in advance for your help. Arvind

CTRL + A + BACKSPACE in quick sucession moving cursor and not deleting word

Hi There,

I am using Firefox after moving away from chromium based browsers and have noticed some odd behaviour from Firefox build 89.0.2 and would like some help if possible.

The issue is, when typing quickly and i must remove the entirety of my input, i will press CTRL + A to highlight all, and sometimes hit the backspace button quickly and it will only move the cursor to the far left and does not delete the selection.

This is not the only issue with combo shortcuts, i have realised that CTRL + C sometimes will not copy the selection and is causing minor annoyance with using this browser.

If could be user error, however, the same usage on other browsers/windows UI never has this problem, and i am strugling to find information about this online hence the post.

Any information would be greatly apreciated.

TIA Brad

Firefox update disabled, yet updates, and i hate the new theme.

Hey all.

I've been using firefox for as long as i can remember and it was pretty much always the same, things are in the same locations etc... at least they have been now for the past many years.

I have updates disabled, i have clicked no for the past few times, and today i open firefox and it had updated itself... and just for fun i'm going to repeat myself, i have updates disabled...

The new top tabs are bigger with smaller text now, the "play" and "mute" button that was on the right side is now on the left and you can only see it when you hover the mouse over the tab itself. All that so there can be written "playing" under the name of the tab now. Instead of the "speaker" icon that was to the right of the tab name. Not even 24 hours ago i had it like that. Utterly useless changes. Who comes up with these ideas? It's helping no one! Stop it :)

It's fine that you have to push updates for security reasons etc... But this user interface changing is seriously going to make me stop using firefox. Why can't you just make your updates but let my browser be and look the same as it has always been!?

This is so annoyingly pathetic. I hope you can do something to change this, or at least give us the old theme with smaller top bar, play/mute on the right side as it was before so it's easy to see and find what tab is playing without having the text of the tab become smaller.

This is why i have disabled updates! It's like opening a drawer that always has socks in it for years, and all of sudden there's spoons in that drawer. Why would you change the position of things? What's next, the close firefox at the bottom left corner? Just for fun to mix things up? ;)

So lame guys.

Since the release of Beta version 89.0b3, Firefox Beta on Win 10 keeps reverting back to .0b2. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happens; sometimes after 'hibernation'; sometimes after 'sleep'. Getting damn frustrating, and I'm not nearly ready to move up from Windows.

How the heck do I track what's going on? All advice gratefully accepted!

This is a thank you follow-up to my yesterdays' post starting with; "firefox version 89 is insanely slow with no explanation had to try reset...." I can't find my msg from yesterday started with this, but wanted to thank you all for fixing Everything - Overnight! I am So glad I waited to, "system restore," until today bec it(MSs' OS) gave warning it might not restore All of the elements correctly. Thank you for your hard work and just appreciating how essential the browsers' Working is to our lives. It is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  :) (I'm now thinking I should maybe put my updates on "notify me first /let me download when ready"...but I'm not really sure if that would accomplish anything because I'd still have to download them to see if there were problem/s that effected My devise in particular. Community posts don't tell you that - or what to do. Pop-up status msgs would be appreciated.. if you'd have time...even if not all knowing...just to know some are aware of X issue...working on it...estimated back up time... whether we could/should do a "system restore" & wait until further notice to DL again. But I guess our issues are what you need to see to fix them...But I digress. Thank you again for working hard to store functionality. I needed something right to happen in my life - someone to be an expert at what they do. Thanks for your humanity.

Is Firefox going to issue an update fix to correct the problem with not being able to G-mail after the update occurred? I am not tech savvy so if it is something process i have to figure out I guess I will need to switch to Safari. i don't want to do that as I have been with Firefox almost since it started.
