I request for this option to be buried in an advanced panel somewhere. Firefox's ability to render desktop websites very well is attractive for power users in Android, because there are many websites that work much better in desktop mode, and some websites don't work at all on mobile. There is the ability to specify a user agent override manually, and some outdated add ons but these are very hack ish and janky.

To add insult to injury, I couldn't even use Firefox very own password reset without having one dialog box get in the way of another because of UI issues.

Hi since I updated Firefox last night, I can't seem to use the search bar anymore, I'm talking about the usual one, the search bar in the middle of the page under the Firefox globe. As soon as I type the first letter in this search bar, it writes into the adress bar, and nothing is displayed in the search bar at all, it stays empty. It's like the only option I have now is the adress bar, the search bar is useless and though it's ok for an adress it is not for a proper research. I wonder how to sort this out. Thanks for your help !

My question is: When you open a new tab in your browser there is something call web search. Is it possible that everything that I input in there can be shown in that little box below the Firefox logo. Instead of getting display on top of the website box.

However, the page displays in "full-screen" mode at startup, without an address bar. How can I restore the address bar once the page is loaded?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

Hello,

I recently was forced to change the address of my blog from "universalism.com.au" to "universalism-au.com" (due to silly legal requirements introduced a few months back about requiring an ABN if you want to use the .au suffix).

"universalism.com.au" is now a dead link, but when I start typing "uni..." in the address bar, it always autocompletes to this old and depreciated url rather than my new one. I would like to be able to type "uni..." and have it autocomplete to the new address, "universalism-au.com"

I have cleared what seems relevant from my browsing history, but no luck. Is this perhaps being caused by my default search engine (duckduckgo) recommending the wrong address?

I have attached a screenshot if this helps.

I'm new to the community. I have tried searching, but I can't find the answer. See my screen shot attachment for version and build details.

Web pages automatically refresh when I leave Fire Fox and come back. Let's say I'm trying to set up a log on for a new forum. The web site will send a confirmation code to mmt email. I go to that app to get the code. Then I come back to Fire Fox to enter the code. The page will automatically reload, and mess up the whole process.

How do I stop the auto reload?

If I have to use "about:config" then I have another issue. I can't open it. When I type that into my address bar nothing happens.

I'm loving forward to learning more about Fire Fox.
