I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

First off, thanks for making Calendar built in. I am using Thunderbird 78.3.3 with the following extensions:

  • Lightning Calendar Tabs
  • Open Google Calendar
  • Provider for Google Calendar

When I open Thunderbird and then the Calendar tab, only items in the Home Calendar are shown. To show any of my other calendars, I need to hover over where the eye icon would be, click on Hide, then click on Show. I have to do this each time I open Thunderbird for each Calendar that I normally have as shown. Calendar does remember which calendars are hidden.

Once a calendar is shown, the eye icon does not stay visible. Personally I preferred the Lightning UI where each calendar had a checkbox for visibility.

Bookmarks v81 - Just Access, Not Create Another Tab

Hi All,

I want to access ABC News, then change to viewing NBC News, etc. I just want to go from one bookmarked site to another with the least amount of hassle - just like how the desktop version works.

Q #1) With android v81 I tap the menu 3dots, select Bookmarks dropdown, tap on the Bookmark name/URL, it opens but as a new tab (3 steps). I must eventually close this tab >Select tabs icon, tap X to close that tab, then select the tab I just left. This is now SIX STEPS. I just want one open tab and change that URL to other bookmarked sites. I can't find a way to do this, or setting to change.

In the previous version I would I would tap the address bar, it defaulted to viewing Bookmarks tab. I selected a bookmark and the page would open - Done. This was TWO STEPS.

Q #2) BOOKMARK ORDER: "We listened to what features you want...blah blah". Is there a way to reorder bookmarks? Our bookmarks migrated into v81 are not alphabetical, by date saved, by URL, or even in their order from the previous version. This is just odd. Does anyone know the criteria on how v81 reordered bookmarks?

The previous version put new bookmarks at the very bottom of the list. People hated this and asked year after for the ability to rearrange their order. It's a tiny ask, 60 minutes worth of code. Many just don't want to push their highly personal bookmarks through a server (Create account -Sync with PC). To get their list order Android users would remove all bookmarks then add them by one in the order they want, doing this several times a year as the list changes. Mozilla has allowed the reorder of Bookmarks in the desktop version since it's inception. So there's has to be an ulterior motive why they won't allow this with mobile devices.

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

Tiktok and YouTube bypass my Firefox autoplay settings. By default, I set Firefox to disable autoplay of audio and video. I seldom use the website, but when I do, it blasts music at me the moment I visit the site. As a headphone user, that's really annoying!

To a lesser degree, YouTube does as well. If I'm not subscribed to a channel, it will autoplay the channel's featured video on the Home tab. Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinaeyckvideos

Hi! I'm posting this in hopes of getting help with a UI responsiveness problem that seems specific to Linux when GPU usage is very high. I use distributed computing through BOINC when weather is cold enough to allow it, but I've noticed that when my GPU is working on a task, Firefox is very unresponsive in most regards; scrolling lags behind my actual inputs, it takes longer to render new pages, and videos have issues like video/audio desync and audio stuttering.

That would seem normal to me considering my system resources are in heavy use, except for two things: these issues do not occur in Blink-based browsers (I've temporarily switched to Brave because of this issue), and more relevantly, they only occur in Firefox in Linux, not Windows Firefox.

I have already checked if this is because of settings or extensions by creating a new blank profile (which I am using right now), and that's not it - turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help either.

I see the Troubleshooting Information dump has a lot of system and hardware data in it, but I'd be happy to provide more details if needed. Thanks!

I am using the same configurations I have always used, I checked, and Thunderbird says it is connected to the server but it does nothing until the connection times out.

One other thing. This very important because these accounts are for a small municipality and we are not able to get any mail.
