On my personal laptop, I have the Multi-Account Containers extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/) running smoothly. I'm currently on a public desktop computer , and I enabled Firefox Sync, which did a good job for passwords, bookmarks, etc, but it didn't sync any of my container info for the Multi-Account Containers add-on. I see the default containers: Personal, Work, Bank, Shopping. On my personal laptop, I have about a dozen containers. What's wrong?

After migration my user directory to a different partition, I've lost all the items in my history menu and my places.sqlite file is no longer updating. However I can see in my address bar that all my regular suggestions and recommendations are still there, still auto-completing as they did before and when I visit a site, its visit count is properly bloated. I'm not sure if this is due to account sync but I've disconnected it now. How can I reconcile my files and repopulate my history menu so I can properly search it?

when I type a URL in the URL bar firefox ESR 68 still pops up a "search with google" bar

I have an explicit search box separate from the URL bar. I want firefox to never ever pass any data from the URL bar to any search engine - DNS query only.

First, the URL bar has grey background text that says "Search with Google or enter address" - I don't want to search anything. Second, when I type an address, below the URL bar a blue bar with a globe appears that says "visit" - and takes up space - previous versions of firefox did not do this - how do I get rid of this?

I have the following set:

browser.fixup.alternate.enabled = false keyword.enable = false browser.urlbar.autofill = false browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark = false browser.urlbar.suggest.history = false browser.urblar.suggest.openpage = false browser.urlbar.suggest.searches = false

So why does it still do this?

Related - I actually don't want the browser to search on my behalf ever - if I want to search I'll go to google or bing or wherever and enter the data that way - is there a 'null' search engine entry that be substituted? (Yes I understand that the URL has to be looked up in DNS, that's not what I mean.)

I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

Hi,

I have a bit of an odd one. I have Firefox installed and Debian OS. For the last two or three weeks I haven't been able to access netflix.com, returns "Server not found" only on the firefox browser. Trying another browser and I can get to the site without issue. Any other site I firefox can access without issue. Same issue in a Private window. I have two debian PC's, both do the same thing. Any other windows, android phone is ok ( using firefox ).

If I connect to my vpn provider on the problem PC's, firefox can access netflix.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi all

For security reasons, all new FF distributions are tested. When checking the distribution kit version 68.5.0esr (exe for x86 and x64) - the antivirus software "VirusTotal" detected Trojan.Inject.bcbj. FortiSandbox also scolded the distribution on x86 - saying that it deleted the file "% programfiles (x86)% \ google \ update \ 1.3.33.17 \ googlecrachhandler.exe" - its installation is undesirable in the ESR version.
