How do I remove the search address bar at the top?

Up until a few weeks ago, I was able to type in the google search page which was located in the middle of the search page. Now there is a bar below my tabs where all the typed words go. Not a fan!

Until recently, when I wrote a mail on Thunderbird, it would suggest phrases and text to input based on what I had written in the past. This was very useful as I often write in Japanese and that uses a lot of set phrases. Anyway, about 2 weeks ago this function stopped suddenly and I haven´t been able to get it working again, so I would be grateful if you had any suggestions.

Hello everybody, I use Firefox for some days now, but I'm a little annoyed with the back button / back gesture usage with tabs. On all browsers I already tried, pressing back button finally close the tab after going back to the first website opened. But with Firefox, it only go to home and let the website open without closing taba. So we have to often close manually opened tabs. Is there a way to change that please ? Sorry for my bad english, I hope it's clear.

Thanks in advance.

Hello.

Hope all is going well.

I've loved working with Thunderbird for more years than I can remember... Great, reliable software.

I'm running macOS Mojave and Thunderbird 78.11.00. Been too busy to address this for the last few months, but spellcheck is not underling misspelled words in longer emails? It does for a new/short email. I saw something about changing the default 500 words in an email to 1000 or more, but it didn't explain how to do this?

Thank you, James

I just recently started using mac being a windows user. While I understand this is not really a game breaker, why is Firefox the only program that ignores my preference changes? Going to settings>keyboard>modifier keys> and then swapping ctrl with the command key fixes my desire to have ctrl+ commands work with every single program, except Firefox still uses the command key as its shortcut initiator no matter what I do. I have seen a few posts from at least 3 years ago and as recent as 2020, does Mozilla ever plan to implement a shortcut menu for its users or are we stuck with using 3rd parties to fix this for us? I still use both PC and Mac.

This is driving me crazy. I've been using Chrome for 4 years and I switch to Firefox because it is more faster and smooth than Chrome, my issue is that I'm a writer so, on the website that I work on we got this shortcuts to put bold, cursive, etc, and they begin with Alt + something, every time that I'm trying to use them I got the bookmark on the menu bar open and doesn't let me use the shortcut on the website.

There is any way to delete completely the menu bar? I already got the ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses on false, but the shortcuts as Alt + B still open the bookmarks or Alt + H opens the history on the menu. I really need a fix for this guys.

i have some custom search engines on Firefox Android 89 (settings > search > add search engine > other).

i noticed that Firefox seems to be ordering the search engines in an arbitrary order.

when i first add the searches, they appear in the order that they are added.

but after the phone is restarted (note: not the browser, the phone), the search engines are ordered in a different way.

this same order shows up in both the settings search engine list (settings > search) and also the search engine selection list (url bar > search engine)

i have observed: - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine name - it is not sorted by alphabetical by engine url (with or without protocol prefix) - it is not sorted by order added - it is deterministic: if i delete an engine and re-add it, even if i name it something different, after a phone restart it'll still return to the same position it was before

so my questions are: 1. how exactly does Firefox sort the search engines? 2. how do i set a custom order for the search engines?

thanks!
