I've a Windows 10 computer I'm moving to that I' haven't used much in the past. I previously installed Firefox in the default location. For my own reasons I now want to uninstall Firefox and reinstall in a different folder. I can uninstall just fine; Microsoft and Glary tools don't find a trace of Firefox/Mozilla on the drive. I reboot, download Firefox using Edge and attempt to reinstall Firefox. The reinstall simply states that I'm trying to reinstall, and it'll take a few moments. AT NO TIME do I have a chance to specify WHERE to install/reinstall. How do I reinstall Firefox in a different folder?

Downloading with Firefox stops repeatedly and is very annoying.

Sometimes first get the following message that Firefox "..nloads\CZ5EEAZM.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of the server. " (see sattach creenshot)


After pressing repeat too many times, the file will finally be downloaded. Sometimes it doesn't work and Firefox crashes.

Question, who recognizes the problem and more importantly how do I solve it?

I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!

Even though I have the "allow websites to choose their own fonts" box checked, some websites (Google and others) display fonts as all question marks. This doesn't happen all the time...just sometimes. And sometimes restarting the computer helps. I prefer using Firefox but I noticed it doesn't happen in Safari. I have OS 12.4 and am using Firefox 103.0.2. Thanks for any advice!

Starting yesterday, the preview images in GIS has been looking off center in Firefox (see attached). If I switch to protection mode the image looks fine. If I open up in any other browser it looks fine as well. I have already cleared my web cache and cookies, refreshed Firefox and then reinstalled it, changed my screen resolution settings, and nothing seems to be fixing it. There's no apparent settings in Google itself to adjust the image...it just started doing that in Firefox out of nowhere.

I cannot copy and paste from one Google doc into another Google doc in Firefox. But I can in Google Chrome.

I don't know the reason for this. Is it because Google (Chrome & Drive) does not want competition? Is it because this inter-doc copy-and-paste requires code that Mozilla doesn't want to bake into Firefox?

Doing this on windows Firefox running the latest version as of yesterday (Aug 10 2022).

When you visit a specific page on the site from the theme, after a few seconds, the computer freezes completely. Such that even the mouse stops moving. I checked several times - the problem is connected precisely with Firefox and with this page and nothing else. On the third hang, the firefox.exe file was even deleted and I reinstalled it with the transfer of the profile. Closing this page until it has time to boot has solved the problem of computer freezing. Is this observed in everyone? https://worldoftanks.ru/ru/news/special-offers/wot-12th-anniversary/

I am pasting this video link first to show exactly is happening when I use Google Images Search results. https://youtu.be/HD-GPkORQPA

This happened suddenly. Everything was fine when I last used google image results, I was playing a game and when I alt+tabbed to search for something, this was happening. I have no idea what could have caused it since I didn't install any new extensions, CSS styles, programs in my PC nor any big changes that would give me an idea of where to start.

I already tried disabling all the extension and that didn't help at all. The only way I've managed to make this stop, was when I opened a private window. There the image search results were fine and I could zoom in, and out and no weird scrollbar issues were happening.

I went back to a normal window in Firefox, and noticed that if I log out from my Google account, this will also fix the issue. And when I logged back in, the issue was happening again.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen, and how I can fix it? Thank you!
