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.

I have recently added a new search engine in Firefox Focus, but I find out that something may be wrong with the URL after trying a few searches. I went to the search engine settings page in the app, only to find out that I cannot edit search engines which I have already saved. This means that to test different URLs, I would have to delete the search engine, paste the url again, edit it, name the search engine in case it works that time, and then go back and test if it works. This really shouldn’t be the hassle that it is right now.

Installed Firefox on Samsung Galaxy Flip3 5G cell telephone. Launch Firefox and Google search opens up. Cannot get rid of Google search in order to go to a website using Firefox. Able to type in the web address in Google search but it won't let me open the website through Google. How do I undo this Google mess and apply the correct settings? The only other option I've accidentally come across is a feature to select one of six search engines. Step-by-step would be appreciated because I am not an IT expert. BTW, I am typing this on a desktop PC.

I'm a 54yr old man, and if I want to search for porn, I should be able to. Your browser doesn't have good results with porn searches. Why is that? Nothing but unrelated crap in images and videos tabs and the sites it offers in "all" tab list are minimal and most of the time unrelated to search criteria. It's as if it thinks I'm some child that needs a net nanny. Come on guys!

I think it was the update to 1:15, but I'm not certain when the search engines I had disabled were unable to again. I don't understand why I can't delete, for example, Bing and eBay which I will never ever use, but to have to disable them adventuresjust because I update Firefox, seems ridiculous.

The URL autocomplete behavior changed for me recently - it appears to be incorporating "top sites" to its suggestions. Typing "P" into the address bar now suggests "pinterest.com", "D" gets "diply.com", "C" gets craigslist, etc - none of these are sites that I've visited, they aren't in my history or bookmarks.

In firefox focus, I can turn this behavior off by going into the autocomplete settings and disabling "top sites", and it doesn't happen on my desktop Firefox- how do I disable these junk suggestions in Firefox Android?

On Android, we cannot enter data URLs in the address bar. (For example data:,String1 ) We are redirected to the Google search result. However, we can use data URLs from bookmarks. On iOS, Firefox rejects any data URL even from bookmarks. At the same time, Chrome on Android and Safari on iOS don't have any issue with data URL. Why does mobile Firefox handle data URLs differently than the desktop version? Is it a bug?

URL autocomplete shows mail.ru

Hi Firefox-Supporters,

I use Firefox for Android for long time. I use

  • Firefox for Android Version 104.1.0 (Build #2015898515)
  • Addons: uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, NoScript, Decentraleyes
  • Autocomplete URLs (Settings - Search - Adress bar): active
  • Firefox for Android linked with a Firefox account and my Firefox Windows installation

Since about two weeks I sometimes get mail.ru as an Autocomplete URL suggestion when I am starting to type 'm', which should show mydealz.de as my by far the most visited website with letter m (visits: 10 or more / day). Sometimes the Autocomplete Feature still suggests mydealz.de. For months and years, it always suggested mydealz.de as expected, I have never seen any suggestion for mail.ru . Now I am wondering why sometimes mail.ru is suggested, as I did not make any (intentional) changes to my setup. Do you have any tips on finding the source for that suggestion? I was wondering if any app/addon or similar is opening the website in the background, as I did not open it intentionally.

Things I already checked/actions I made to find the potential source or at least fix the issue

  • Searched bookmarks (Android and Windows) for mail.ru - no bookmark set
  • Searched search engines (Android and Windows) for entry for mail.ru - no entry set
  • Searched history (Android and Windows) for visits of mail.ru - no entry
  • Delete browsing data (Android): works short-term, first suggestion after deletion is is monero.org with letter m, mail.ru showed after a few times typing 'm' in the adress bar.
  • Searched for newly installed apps on android phone - max. 1-2 new apps installed within the last weeks, would classify them as reliable.
  • Searched for newly installed apps and total scan for viruses on Windows Laptop - no new Apps installed, no virus found by MS Windows integrated scanner.

Would be glad if anybody got any tips on this.

Kind regards

There is an issue with mobile version of Google page, page loads as white page even at freshly installed Firefox nightly without any addons etc. When searching via address bar results are presented normally, but then when click on Google button to go into main page it load white page again. In addition I have checked it in my other device and it was the same behaviour, so it seems that something wrong is with Google itself. When use option to view page in desktop/computer mode page loads normally.

I am unable to find a way to remove a single unwanted URL from the suggestions list on Firefox for Android. If the website I want to go to (and that I go to regularly) is called abcxyz, and I went to website abcdef once, Firefox will always try to autocomplete the URL to abcdef even though I do not want to go there again. I have found instructions for how to accomplish this on PC, but they can't be followed on a mobile device. I have tried deleting the cookies, etc. for the unwanted website and removing it from my history, but without completely clearing out all browsing data for all websites (which I do not want to do), I haven't been able to figure out how to remove a single unwanted URL.
