Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

When I first open Firefox I usually get a message that we cannot find that page. I have my start page set to Google. Then when I refresh the page it usually opens but sometimes I need to refresh more than once. Then after that I can surf normally. Does anyone know what causes that? Is it an issue with my ISP or my router or something else? I though it might be the New Tab Override extension, but disabling it won't solve the problem. I have a 100 Mbps cable connection. I do not notice the same problem with Chrome.

Hello,

My computer crashed today. On restart, Firefox looks different. I'm sure I had a theme or add on installed prior to the crash. But I don't have any memory of what it was. Is there a history I can look at for that? If so, how do I access it? Thanks.

I have most recent release of Firefox and also just updated MacOS to 11.5.2. After updates the histograms on the Wordpress blog stats page do not display. They display fine on Opera. I did clear cache — that didn't help. I quit Firefox and restarted — that didn't help. Firefox version for Mac version 91.0.1 (64-bit).

I assume this must be a Firefox bug, but am open to suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Also, when I click the checkbox for "Email me when someone answers the thread" it will not accept the check. Irritating.

Those are crash reports that hang on clearing formdata (Form & Search History).

   Settings -> Privacy & Security
   Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history":
   [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" -> Settings
   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-browsing-search-download-history-firefox 

You appear to be clearing quite some data and Firefox takes too long to clear all of this:

"privacy_sanitize_sanitizeOnShutdown": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_cookies": false, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_history": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_formdata": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_downloads": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_cache": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_sessions": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_offlineApps": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_siteSettings": true, "privacy_clearOnShutdown_openWindows": false

You can try to clear less data and start with excluding formdata.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Mac High Sierra and sometimes it has the issue where the letter y is missing in the body text, but for one website, and only one, it breaks the URL https://www.optus.com.au/about/sustainability/community/donate-your-data (see screenshot) which seems odd as the URL displays correctly in the URL bar.

I did the test at https://test.amiunique.org/?consent=1 and as a result got this: 16 potentially detected lists (over 292) - These filter lists will be used to generate an unique identifier. -see attached screenshot

Also, if any website of your choice creates a unique identifer on me by using the filter list, as long as i use the exact same filters as another person, could it be that the uniqure identififer is the same for me and the other person or a group of many persons/devices using this exact filter list? I mean.. if my list is the same as someone else they will be identically which means it doesn't matter i am unique identifyed because after all im not unique but only in a list of devices using a specific filter?

And i must say that now, if you go to https://test.amiunique.org and do the test, then klick the shield icon, how pathethic is that amount of trackers, social media trackers, and even cryptominers!?!?

Just today, the list of open webpages changed from a list to a panel of images. With the list, inam able to scan quiclky through selecting what i need at the moment. The list displayed many more pages than is displayed with the panel arrangement. I can go on aboutbhow much more convenient the list is for me. But instead of lobbying for one display mode or the other, how about offering a choice. It would make everyone happy. Thanks ... please think about this ....

Hellow,

Since updating the latest firefox version 91.01 it has considerably slowed down browsing speed to an impossible crawl. The task manager shows the update as permanently on, sucking 100% resources. There´s something not right when it does this, and is becoming a bad habit of constantly refreshing firefox to get sensible operation.

It started by installing a clear cache which helped as firefox also hangs when connecting to the internet as a result it goes off-line at random times. Barely ideal. 

Is it worth rolling back to an earlier version that is more stable ? Any other users got debugging suggestions ?

I truly hope the developers at least refer to this site for concern requests for fixes.

It seems every about:config fix for the spacing of the bookmarks as well as the photon/proton fixes are doing nothing on Firefox version 91.

Is there anyway to get a simple checkbox that fixes the views for desktop? The whole world is not working on tablets or phones and this is so frustrating to see functionality continually broken with updates that are obviously required because of security issues that plague the online world.

Can any developers please respond to when users can see a fix to this issue? I know this is far from life ending but it breaks the visual aspect of the browser so badly.
