My Firefox just updated to 62.0 and now my URL bar doesn't automatically fill in site names like it did. "Fox" would become "FOXNEWS" but not now.

I would begin an address bar/URL entry like "FAC" and it would autocomplete as "FACEBOOK.COM" and I would just hit [ENTER] or "FOX" would become "FOXNEWS.COM", then I would have to hit [ENTER]. Those choices still appear in a drop-down list but it was faster when the URL automatically filled. I had this functionality until the update to 62.0 this week. Can I restore this function in the configs?

HI there! Thanks in advance for your help!

Since las auto-update something changed in Firefox behavior. One one side, bookmarks are strange. If I try to bookmark a page, menu appears empty, like new. Nevertheless, if I 'Show all bookmarks', they're there!

And, whenever I press a 'download button', nothing happens. I can, though, download a pdf file, for instance, if I press CTRL+S

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Device got renamed after update, how to recover tabs sent to old name of same device?

I recently updated my main desktop browser to the latest version (62), but for some reason this caused the name of the device to change. What used to be "<Name>'s Firefox on Desktop" is now "<Name>'s Firefox on <Name>". I had only realized this happened since none of the tabs I sent from my work computer to my desktop were appearing.

1) Are all of the tabs I sent now lost? Is there a way to recover these tabs? 2) If I rename my desktop computer back to its old name, will the tabs finally arrive? 3) How do I resync all of my devices with the correct device names in all lists?

Something to note, the old device name no longer appears in the "manage devices" list even though it is still present in the right-click menu of the "send tab to device" list.

Browser tabs often do not load in the background after updating to Firefox 62.0. (I have confirmed that the value is listed as "true" in the browser.tabs.remote.autostart section of about;config as suggested in a previous post) Further, when I click on the tabs and wait, those tabs are slow to load or fail to load.

The only work around that I have found is to fully close the browser and relaunch. Sometimes this resolves the issue and other times have to re-start it several times. But this is not practical solution as it takes too much time and interrupts my work.

I do not have any extentions installed (not even a single one) and I am using the default theme.

I SO MUCH preferred the old way of bookmarking a web page!!! This new bookmarking tool brings up a HUGE popup,TWICE THE SIZE OF THE OLD ONE !!! -- and the new one actually covers up some of the information I want to type into the book mark name.

Further - and SO UNNECESSARY -- inside the bookmark creating pop-up there is a THUMBNAIL of the actual page I am looking at!!! This is ridiculous. If it was not there, I could see what I need/want on the page underneath.

Is there some way to go back to the OLD procedure that had just a couple of lines in a small pop-up? I am sure I am not the only one who would like to do this. Thank you for any assistance !!!
