This new feature in version 43, as shown in the picture, is not very useful to me, as I am more often than not visiting a particular page on a site, rather the the domain of the site itself. Whereas before I would just have to type a letter and hit enter, I now have to hit the arrow down and hit enter. I know it's not a great deal of work but these little things annoy me. Is there an about:config change to get rid of this new behaviour?

I use the jacquielawson.com site a lot to send greetings cards. With the old Firefox it worked fine. With the latest Firefox however the flash works fine for about 15-20 seconds then the screen blacks out or goes to one solid color. I have tried all the fixes for flash problems listed on Firefox help, I have refreshed Firefox and I have deleted Firefox and downloaded the latest version. I have also downloaded the latest flash player. At the moment I have to change to a different browser if I want to use jacquielawson.com. They seem to operate without any problem. I have also noticed an occasional problem with other sites but not with the consistency of this particular one. Can anyone help? Thanks, BrianP

And I was only to re-enable three. This happened with NO changes to my browser or extensions; nothing was updated, and I didn't tweak any settings. One of the ones I can't enable is by the same creator as the ones I can (TrendMicro; others I can't re-enable include RealPlayer and Yahoo toolbar). I'm a bit concerned as it is a security measure I can't re-enable. While the one I'm most concerned is a Tumblr add-on/extension (XKit, The Extension Framework For Tumblr), because I don't want to install 500 new extensions to deal with one problem at a time, when I had a perfectly good extension that deals with all of them and already has my settings saved (including some important things archived). From what I've seen, the creator has to get the extension "signed" or whatever, which presents a problem as the last available xkit update I saw was from last year (2014). Is there ANYTHING that can be done to fix this???

Firefox 43 no longer uses my browsing history to suggest my frequently visited sites in the URL bar. Do I have to use a search engine?

I have just downloaded firefox 43. In the past, I could visit many of my favorite sites by simply typing a few of the first words. For example, by typing the letters "sl" firefox would immediate suggest slashdot.org and I could simply press the right key and type enter. But it seems the update to firefox 43 wiped out this functionality (or worse, my browsing history). Is there a way to restore the old behavior? This really sucks. I don't want to type the whole site name every time...

Thanks,

Dimitri

Today, my search bar randomly reverted to the post-FF34 "new" search bar. Despite repeatedly toggling the browser.search.showoneoffbuttons in about:config, and restarting the browser about a dozen times, it stubbornly stays with the new search. Does anyone know how to get it to stick on the old search? Or get the about:config toggle to work again?

Firefox and Microsoft Explorer both show black backgrounds with white text. Background settings claim they are at defaults. I have updated Firefox, restarted Firefox, disabled add-ons (I wasn't using any), cleared history and cookies, unclicked hardware accelerator, updated Adobe FlashPlayer. I do not know if it is relevant but I just uninstalled Dell Fast Access facial recognition software. Has anybody encountered this problem and have any suggestions that I have not already tried? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I can imagine why FireFox developers think the new search bar is better. However, having gratefully used Firefox since version 1, I am disappointed by it and prefer the old version. I used to be able to control this with about:config browser.search.showOneOffButtons that since version 43.0 is broken. Please allow users to use the old search style. Having to constantly go to setting and change the default the search engine when doing research with different specialized searches is counterproductive. Firefox is still the best browser, but now no longer as good as itself ;-) Thanks!

Firefox automatically updated this morning to 43.0. Since then, my search bar now appears as the newer style again. Previously I'd been using the about:config trick with the browser.search.showOneOffButtons = False setting to retain the older style (the one that has the drop down menu to select, and then the search engine icon visible).

I verified that the OneOffButtons selection is still false, and even tried switching it back to True, and back to False again. No luck. Is this an intentional change? Does anyone know how to return back to the old search bar without downgrading?

For my job, I often have to do repeated searches with custom search engines loaded. It's much easier to just select the engine (or even Ebay if I'm searching a lot of Ebay stuff) and then do repeated searches with that engine without having to select that engine from the newer drop down menu every single time. It's also nice to have the visual indicator of what the current engine is selected to instead of the little magnifying glass.

In other words, the newer SearchBar, for me, has lost pretty much all functionality in terms of Ease of Use. I've been using Firefox for years and this was pretty much the last thing keeping me hanging on instead of switching to Chrome.

So with the FF 43 update Mozilla is again destroying my work flow. When browsing i I mostly go off of muscle memory. And the new update through up in the top most position of the url drop down the search with option. I disabled that inside of 5 minutes but now instead of that is gives me "Visit "what ever url i may be partially typing" . I'd like this new item disabled and can't seem to find an option for it.

I've never understood why the url bar got enabled for web search when there is already a dedicated search bar.

On Firefox 42, Flash was working properly but after updating to 43.0 some websites give me an error that the Flash plugin failed to load. For example the following site: http://www.roosterteeth.com/episode/rwby-season-3-volume-3-chapter-6-fall

Also, when I go to this adobe site, the Flash video that plays only if Flash is working doesn't play https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

I tried going to the above Adobe site on my other computer which still had Firefox 42.0 and it loaded the video properly but upon updating to 43.0, the video stopped loading on my other computer as well.

I've tried to fix the problem by doing the following with no success: 1. Restarted Firefox 2. Uninstalled and reinstalled Flash 3. Restarted Windows 4. In the list of Firefox plugins at about:addons I made sure that Shockwave Flash was set to "Always Activate" 5. Deleted the Firefox cache and restarted Firefox

I'm using Windows 10 64-bit

In my preferences when using the location bar, I only have bookmarks checked. History and open tab are unchecked. When I use the address bar the first suggestion is the "users can choose search suggestions" in Firefox version 43.0. How do I remove that altogether? For me personally, I liked it better in version 42.0 when that wouldn't happen. Now it feels very clunky that I don't have the same routine.

In the attached image, I type in "g" in the address bar, and the first suggestion is visit gen.lib.rus.ec/ Before, this wasn't the case, I would type in "g" and the first suggestion would be google. I don't want to use it at all, even if "the more I use it, the better it gets." Quote from: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/awesome-bar-search-firefox-bookmarks-history-tabs Is there something in the about:config or options that will disable this?

Thank you, Have a nice day

Upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 a couple days ago.

Now, I must login to websites each time I visit whereas in the past I would be automatically logged in with stored username/password. I have checked cookies settings and other security settings and don't see what should be changed. Everything looks to be as it was before (from what I remember).

Would appreciate any help--it's probably something very simple but I can't figure it out.

Thanks.
