In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??

Whenever I type the word 'google' for any reason, even when composing an email, Firefox automatically opens up a new tab. Google is my home page so the new tab that opens shows the google main search page. What I have to do is type goo gle and then insert the cursor before the 'gle' part and back space. How do I stop this, please?

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?

Firefox Developer Edition downloaded 89.0b1 tonight. When you choose Submit Feedback in the help/about form it goes nowhere. Actually to a "coming soon" page for ideas.mozilla.com. Is that so you won't have to field complaints about the "improvements" in this version? Because I have several complaints.

Firefox appears to have just updated. Now my bookmarks list is so long I have to scroll down to see everything. It looks like everything has been spaced out further, which I hate. It takes up was too much space. They were probably going for a more elegant, less cluttered look, but it just ended up making things more aggravating for me. There should be a way to adjust or turn off the spacing feature. Any suggestions?

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

Hi there! Some background info: I have a desktop PC. I just got the newest firefox update. ...Thanks; I hate it. And they've altered the way the bookmarks look. So now the bookmarks drop-down menu is so long that I have to scroll down to see everything on it, (I didn't have to before). And what's worse is that sometimes one moment it will be over the Windows taskbar that's at the bottom of my screen and suddenly it will disappear UNDER the taskbar where I can't see everything and I struggle to access anything with my mouse. It's SO aggravating. How do I fix this??

Since the release of Beta version 89.0b3, Firefox Beta on Win 10 keeps reverting back to .0b2. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happens; sometimes after 'hibernation'; sometimes after 'sleep'. Getting damn frustrating, and I'm not nearly ready to move up from Windows.

How the heck do I track what's going on? All advice gratefully accepted!

I would like to sing in to youtube.com but not google search or any other google related services.

I tried Enhanced Tracking Protection, strict & custom block all third party cookies & privacy.firstparty.isolate = true. but none of that could prevent me from getting singed in to all google.com services automatically when I sing in to youtube.com.

Is there any way to achieve that without installing add-ons?
