in any other open tab, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar properly goes into hiding as soon as i begin scrolling, portrait or landscape.

ONLY IN AN ABOUT:CONFIG TAB, auto-hide addressbar/toolbar requires that i 1) scroll all the way to end of page and then 2) vigorously & multiply scroll down, through the stuck bar. any upward scroll & i have to start from scratch. portrait & landscape.

How do we permanently block and keep a website from being able to return bk into a person's life after the site was the cause of an immense amount of financial and emotional hardship. By having something that does this, like the Duck browser does, our clients, friends and family will feel more safe, right?

From the image below, I asked a question and the results are there. I've tried this on my tablet as well, getting the exact sane results, no matter what I put in the search results.

However, I choose Google as the search engine (as you can see from the image below), while Firefox still being the main browser and I got results to the question below.

What is happening with your browser or duckduckgo search engine? In all my years of using these platforms, I've never had this issue. Yes, I'm Android user and haven't changed any devices. My setup is the sane on all my devices.

It’s not I stall and update as far as I know, it’s an issue I’ve never seen. My browsers, Firefox chrome DuckDuckGo etc none of them can produce search results though my internet is very much connected to my router. My isp can’t find an issue. What is wrong?

I own an S23 and I'd like to know if there's a way to make the browser suggestions fit on the screen. I've added two images to help explain what's going on. The first image shows Firefox, where the suggestion doesn't fit on the screen, whereas on Brave, if the suggestion is too long, it adjusts to the space. Thanks.

I regularily go to "https://www.desmos.com/calculator", however when I type in "des..." to firefox it autocompletes to "https://www.desmos.com" which I don't want, and then need to do a few extra clicks to get the "/calculator". Is there any way to manually change what will show up? I never want to go to "https://www.desmos.com", and only want "https://www.desmos.com/calculator". I have similar issues around websites I use incredibly rarely, strangely coming up as top suggestions for autocomplete.

What is the significance of a different browser when the search engine is Google anyway? And if I use a search engine other than Google, I will lose the benefits of Google Maps, the Google keyboard (for example, entering through a microphone) Basically, Google has a monopoly. Is that so?!

I just did a Google image search on my pixel 8 and saw that all the image results were forced to "fit width" so I can only really see 1 result at a time. I have the "Google Search Fixer" installed and dialsabling it returns the image search view to gallery. But when I enable to addon it goes back to that "ft to wish" view.

I've looked through the options and tried searching for similar problems/solutions and found nothing. How do I return my Google image search view to gallery? It's really obnoxious and frustration to only be able to see 1 image at a time when searching.

Any else seeing this lately?

1. **Navigation Issues**: Firefox fails to correctly navigate forwards or backwards through browser history. It often does not load the intended previous page, skips pages, or refuses to load a page entirely, requiring the user to close all tabs and manually re-enter the URL.

2. **Loading Issues with External Links**: When opening links from external applications (e.g., email clients), Firefox frequently fails to load the expected webpage. Sometimes, it does not load any page, or it loads to a blank or the home page despite the URL being visible and highlighted in the address bar.
