In older versions of Firefox, wasn't there a smaller second search bar to the right of the main search bar where you could enter your search terms and not lose them when the search results came up? I hate having to retype my search terms after getting my results.

Recently Firefox is slower and when I have one screen up and go to task manager it shows anywhere from 8 to 40 instances of Firefox running and sometimes 98% CPU usage. I have had other problems since the Microsoft January 9, 2024 update. Is this related or is this a separate Firefox issue? How to start fixing?

thanks

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me figure out why Firefox continues to crash on my M-series Mac, when visiting certain websites. I am getting an error, no blob image template [ EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS ], on each crash. I've looked this error up, to little avail. Can someone please help diagnose some of these? Thank you in advance!

Upgraded to Firefox 123.0 last night. This problem did not appear until after that event.

Scenario 1: Start Firefox. Make sure Bookmarks toolbar is visible. My home page is set to www.google.com. Sign in Toolbar goes away

Scenario 2: Make sure Bookmarks toolbar is visible. The checkbox IS set to always display Go to another page Toolbar goes away

I am not accidentally turning it off and I notice stiff like this. I am a software engineer manager in my day job. This looks like a new bug in version 123.0

For years had bookmarks in folders showing on Bookmark Toolbar. Today they are all gone. Still in my Bookmarks on the drop down Menu, but not appearing on the Toolbar. Please help. Can't seem to drop and drag them there. Also, the Bookmarks Toolbar keeps disappearing every time I go to look at a new tab.

The last several weeks, almost every time I close Firefox, I get the Crash report dialog box. I have cleared cache and cookies. I also cleared the offline website data and deleted the parent.lock file. These may work for a bit, but eventually the same day. So far today, it has happened 5 times. I do submit the report(s). It's not really a hassle, just having to click a button, but it just drives me crazy that it is being generated even though Firefox did not crash and I am just closing it after I am done. Anyone else encounter this? Any suggestions? Thanks

Not sure of the topic. When I type in a website that I have typed before, its fine. But, if I search something new, anything, the tab trembles and does not search. I quit and restarted. Updated today to the latest. Still the same. I am writing this from Chrome because Firefox won't even respond to searching for firefox. The trembling is seen in the new tab and nothing happens.

Thank you, Naomi

For the past week, when I sign into Facebook, the news feed is constantly refreshing itself. Once in a while the first post will stay, but the remainder of the news feed keeps refreshing. It is impossible to read anything as posts flash on and off, mostly off. The news feed is the only thing that is affected, visiting pages for likes and groups load and display properly, as do the games I play. The same occurs if in the private window mode. This does not happen if in the Chrome browser. What can be done to correct this situation?

I have Startparge set as my default search engine. I used to type directly into the address bar (see first image).

Press Enter, and the Startpage results page for this search phrase would show up. Somehow, this has now changed. I press Enter, but the result is just the Startpage home page, with a blank search box (see second image). So I then have to type the same phrase in again in Startpage's own box. This just trips me up.

The crazy thing is that this only happens sometimes - but more often than not. I haven't seen it work right for weeks: I just did it now to make screenshots, and it worked wrong. I just did it again and it worked as expected: pressing Enter took me to Startpage's results.

Any clues how to change settings to fix this?

I understand that as outlined [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pinned-tabs-keep-favorite-websites-o...], pinned tabs aren't designed to be closed with ctrl+w.

I would still like that behavior though, is there a way to either assign a shortcut to that funktionality (one that I would just also map to ctrl+w) or remove the protection altogether?

I know that you can change a lot of thing sin about:config, so I have hopes that there might be something for this as well. Alternatively, do you maybe know of a plugin to allow this?

What wouldn't be useful are solutions requiring additional actions (Just unpin first, just use MMB, here is a plugin to give you a shortcut to unpin etc).

If it is just not possible right now, is it likely to become an option later on? If not it seems like a useful feature request. I understand that the current default behavior makes sense, but part of what makes firefox great and different is its customizability, so having what I want be a hidden about:config toggle feels very on brand (or even a setting in the normal settings menue - but even there it might be too niche and cause bloat).

I often like to bookmark a website in multiple folders (e.g. School>Research and Work>Energy). I used to be able to do so by clicking the bookmark star as many times as I wanted and selecting the folder I wanted to save the page to and the page would show up in each folder I saved it to. Now for some reason, when I try to bookmark something in one folder it removes the bookmark from the other folders I saved it to. This is not good for me, why is it happening and how can I rectify this ridiculous change? Thank you.

Hey folks... I am running the latest ESR version for windows 7. I know, its limited support and stuff but I have this most annoying problem that just doesn't seem to want to go away.

Every day, several times a day, I am told there is an update available. I have gone in several times and downloaded and installed the latest release. The install goes fine, there are no issues. Yet, over and over again I am told there is an update... but I have the latest version installed.

In the past, I have used the "distribution" folder trick to stop updates and I have removed that a long time ago. I can't figure out why it keeps telling me there are updates, when there are none.

How can I stop this from doing updates where there are no updates to get? It's driving me nuts...
