Is there a way to remove the sponsored link from the address bar drop down? Yesterday a link from a company that is run by terrorists showed up in the list. Shift+Del does not remove it. I understand Mozilla needs to get money somehow, but this is offensive. The link is for Ebay and it has the word sponsored next to it. Since the address bar drop down disappears when I hit any key, it is impossible to screenshot.

Firefox 83 changed how the search engine options work: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I personally use the old behavior (submit immediately after clicking the option) much more often than I need to see the search suggestion. Is there an option to make the old behavior the default without pressing shift?

Thanks!

Hi, I am using Firefox 83.0 64 bit (not sure if it has recently updated or not). I noticed today that my extensions were no longer visible in the top right corner, even though they were still installed. I tried to fix the problem by deleting/re-installing firefox several times but this did not seem to help. I have now found out that they disappear when I select "Never remember history" on the privacy page. They re-appear if I select Rember history from the drop down menu. Is this a bug or is there a way to fix this. Thanks

How to ensure that hyperlinks in pinned tabs open in new tabs?

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

I'm assuming this bug was introduced in the last update to Firefox. Whenever I am typing anything into the Style Editor, the text randomly seems to delete itself. If I type very slowly it is less likely to happen, but occasionally still does.

I have seen some other threads about this with no solutions which leads me to believe this is a bug.

Any time I go to upload a file when using firefox, the file explorer is unable to load and makes firefox unresponsive, meaning I have to end the program via task manager. This doesn't occur on other browsers, and safe mode has made no difference. Any ideas how to resolve this?

Here are some of the technical reports from the windows reliability monitor:

I was notified by a 3rd party monitoring service of a potential scam involving my email address, DOB, tel #, etc. To the best of my knowledge my password was not compromised. I contacted the potential site from the alerts which was GTL.Net and after contacting customer support I was told they had nothing to do with GTL. This company appears legitimate but I have had no dealings with them and have no idea whether I am being scammed or not. But they were possibly accessing information which they did not need. Help, I am stuck as to what alternatives are available.

Picture of 1 of 4 notifications (all 4 were the same):

Compromised Email Address & Compromised Phone

Monitored Element Email Addresses: [confidential info]@Gmail.com Monitored Element Phone Numbers: [confidential info] Date Found: 11/10/2020

We monitor online activity to identify the potential illegal trading and selling of your personal information. Unfortunately, we found a match which indicates the information within the red box above is available online. If your password was also compromised, that will be noted in the "Additional Info" section below. Please note, this is the password associated with the site where your email address was procured.

If the “potential site” information is populated, we obtained credible evidence that this is the possible site from which your email address and password, if applicable, were found and we recommend you change your password for this site.

If the "potential site" is not named, you should consider what sites you have associated with the “Monitored Element Email Addresses” and consider changing your password on those sites..

For example, if you set up an account with madeupwebsite.com (fictitious site for this example), you provided your email address to this site and established a password for this site; that password should be changed. See additional comments under “Here's what to do:”, below. We monitor online activity to identify the potential illegal trading and selling of your personal information. Unfortunately, we found a match which indicates the information within the red box above is available online. Below you will find additional information on next steps to take to ensure your personal information is secure.

Additional Info

The following data was found compromised with your email address. First Name Thomas Last Name Garner Email [email]@gmail.com Address 1 [confidential info] City [confidential info] Zip [confidential info] Country us Phone Number [confidential info] Potential Site gtl.net Creation Date 11/10/2020 D.O.B. D.O.B. Found Match IDEMAILADDR,IDHOMEPHONE

Here's what to do: Immediately change the password for the website if identified above. Consider changing passwords for websites or online accounts which may be associated with this email address. If the password is not identified above, that does not necessarily indicate your password is safe. Passwords might not be visible to our monitoring due to encryption or otherwise, yet they could be procured and encryption cracked by parties obtaining information from the dark web. Utilize smart password habits. Re-using passwords across multiple sources may increase your vulnerability to identity thieves. Create unique and strong passwords for your accounts using a mix of special characters, numbers and upper and lower case letters known only to you.

Here's what to do: Ensure the accounts that contain your phone number are secure. Many times, your phone number is used to authenticate your name and account information for websites like Gmail and Facebook.

Just before I got the message We've upgraded Firefox in the background, causing me to have to close and reopen Firefox, Firefox , which I use to get mail from Outlook over my objections, dumped into the folder I had open at the time a folder called 'Mail'. Its contents are a huge number of files with the extension js, 25Mb worth. I have put this in the trash. But before I knew it was there I backed up my files on a second laptop. There the folder and its contents do not respond to -- do not allow-- the command to put in trash. The file names are grey so that they cannot even be selected to trash them. How do I get rid of this stuff? If I don't get rid of it, I daren't back up the files of that computer onto mine because I'd get it all back. So there is some urgency to the question. Sample file listed: Mail - Robert Thomas - Outlook_files/profilephotopicker_without-react_0497945b6204f57b88e6.js

Since updating to Firefox 83 today, Firefox will not open my local webserver by name (anfield). I can ping the name of the server and it resolves fine. And the site opens correctly in Microsoft Edge. But Firefox just says 'Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at anfield.' Interestingly, I can open the website using it's IP address, but all my shortcuts to my development sites are on this webserver by name (anfield). Why is Firefox unable to resolve the name?
