Firefox defaults to English (US) as input language with Swedish available to switch to.

I live in Sweden but i prefer to keep my phone in english, but my selected input language is Swedish qwerty, that works for everything except for firefox, even though the only input language in both the phone and in the browser is Swedish qwerty it still defaults to English (US).

Minor inconvenience but its getting quite frustrating, appreciate any help!

Kind regards Klintberg.

Clicking on a link has recently started to open two duplicate tabs at various times

Good afternoon. I am using the most current version of Firefox (88.0.1) and have Windows 10 64-bit. I have my mouse configured so that if I am on the desktop to open a folder I only have to click once instead of twice. Not too long ago in Firefox if I click a link two duplicate tabs open occasionally instead of one. Not every time I click a link or even in every session but just from time to time. It never happened before and I haven't changed any mouse settings. It is very random and does NOT happen with Edge, just Firefox. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

How do I disable the floating tabs that come with the 89.0 update

The floating tabs are awful. They all mix together and look like one giant tab which makes it infinitely harder to find what I'm doing when I have many tabs open. The proton design is disappointing all around but these tabs are unacceptable.

How do I get the old (pre 89) tabs and menu style back?

I'm happy for those who prefer the new style, but I am not one of them. The tabs don't need to be this big, and I prefer having visible borders between them. I also don't like rounded corners. The menu isn't as important, but I preferred how that looked before as well.

Is there some setting I can change, or should I just revert to an older version, hoping the option will exist in the future?

Thanks and have a good day.

How to stop the search from jumping to the address bar when typing on Firefox Home

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

I keep accidentally muting my tabs when all I want is to click on them to switch to them.

I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

How do I do that?

My google searching is leaving me at a loss here. I did something and the taskbar at the bottom of the web browser is now covered by the browser. Not the bar at the top, the bar at the bottom that has whatever other programs you're running listed in multiple tabs. Every single damn search is leading to how to mess with the task/toolbar at the top of the freakin page. I can make it reappear if I press the windows button or open another program, but while in Firefox it's not visible. The top taskbar, bookmarks, and all are still there so it's not in full page mode. I know the fix is probably ctrl and some other button somewhere but what?

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

I read this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092509

And i switch "browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon" to "false" and restart the browser. But I am still able to turn off the sound by clicking the icon on the tab. The config option is still set to "false".

What is the proper way to disable mute icon on tabs?

I used to use a lot the three dots next to a webpage to share the page via airdrop (to have it/share it with my own phone or others'). Now the three dots have disappeared and, although I read here that I could do that by right clicking the page, the option for SHARE does not appear. Can you please explain how to do this now? (I use a Mac).
