I'm using 83.0b6 (64-bit) with both an address bar and search bar. Recently, if I type a g into the address bar the second suggestion is "search with google directly from the address bar. Typing an a does the same thing for amazon. Search suggestions are turned off. Top sites are unchecked in the address bar settings. All Firefox home content is unchecked in settings.

Is it possible to remove these "search with" suggestions from the address bar drop down? Thanks.

A few days ago Firefox automatically updated and destroyed all my logins and passwords and a huge amount beside. Yes, there was blurb about how to find them which involved a file which did not exist on my system and the whole was not comprehensible.

I did ask for help but got nothing

Somehow, the next day my system had gone back to the earlier setup. Now Firefox wants me to update AGAIN!

Given my experience how can I trust Firefox not to destroy my data?

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.

Hello,

One website gives me a failed secure connection:

An error occurred while connecting to www.cdkeypt.pt. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This error is in Firefox but this site doesn't work in any browser

I restart the pc when it re-enters the desktop if i open the browser before the computer fully starts the site works fine which makes me conclued that something is interfering with it and it most be an update or something because i didn't install anything new, but what? it is only this site that doesn't work all the others are working fine.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks

I am trying to stop autoplay on Tubi. I have tried everything from this topic: [[Firefox block autoplay not working, preferences are showing "Block Audio and Video"|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278114#answer-1283973]] None of it works, modifying this option breaks Tubi playback completely: media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 , option 1 does nothing. I am at my wits end trying to stop auto playback on Tubi with FireFox. I tried another browser and auto playback is disabled easily on Tubi, and works as expected. I hope someone has figured this out for Tubi! Mark

The command

Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit) I can no longer use Firefox to view Facebook. Within minutes Firefox slows down and no longer responds. I had a similar problem previously with some builds of Firefox but not this bad. Seems like the problem is fixed in one build and then re broken in a newer build. I even get a warning from Firefox that the page is slowing down Firefox. Never seen this before 82.0.2 (64-bit). I can use Chrome, Edge or Opera just fine. The trouble is I'm a Firefox user and have been since the beta builds back in the stone age. Anyone else have this problem.

Thanks

Touch Keyboard Not Opening In Tablet Mode

Whenever I try to use the address bar in tablet mode, the touch keyboard opens and then is immediately closed. The same occurs when the touch keyboard is opened via the taskbar. This is making Firefox almost impossible to use in tablet mode.

This does not occur when using the ease of access keyboard via Windows 10 accessibility settings, which prevents the tablet mode keyboard from appearing, but the keyboard may as well be folded back out at this point.

"Show a touch keyboard when necessary" is enabled in options. Touch/tablet mode is enabled in preferences. These have been cycled on and off with no effect other than the touch keyboard not opening in the first place when the former is disabled.

The app appears shift and flicker when the address bar is tapped to search and the keyboard opens and closes again.

Running on HP Pavillion x360 14", using a 1080p display.

My Firefox privacy preferences tell me that "stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 1.0 GB of disk space", but when I click on "Manage Data", no sites are listed. I have also always had the "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checked. What then explains the 1.0 GB of disk space?

Hello. If you want to use the "video downloadhelper" extension, then you will be offered to download an additional program to your computer and install it. I used VirusTotal and found some dangerous software. I found in Google what kind of virus it is and after reading information about it, I did not want to install this program. I think it can be dangerous for other users as well. See screenshots below.

I believe the latest updates for Firefox made some changes so that a fixed background image in a WordPress cover block does not stay fixed. It used to work about 2 weeks ago, now it does not. But, the fixed background behaves as expected in MS Edge.

https://www.cemalekin.com/test/layout-test/ https://www.cemalekin.com/test/test-page/

In the first linked page there is one such block, in the second one there are two. None works in Firefox, either on my Surface Book 2 laptop or my desktop with a 27" monitor. The same pages will show the expected behavior when viewed in MS Edge.

I tried the following:

  • Restarted FF with all the add-ons disabled
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Removed the entire custom CSS from the site
  • Tried different themes

Nothing made any difference. I have been a Firefox user for a long time and do not want to switch. I also want the visitors using Firefox be able to have the same experience. Any suggestion to fix this problem will be much appreciated. Or a repaired version of Firefox release will be most welcome.

Thank you.

So earlier I downloaded Firefox for my Macbook Air and made the change from Chrome to Firefox. I followed all the instructions online of transferring data from Chrome to Firefox and all seemed great. I just restarted my computer because I was having issues with my internet, and went to reopen everything again. Firefox isn't saved like a normal application like it should, it's still acting like I'm installing it from the .dmg each time. Also, it hasn't saved any of the transferred data/settings I did earlier today. I have no idea what's going on?
