I'm having a lot of trouble with the URL autocomplete function not working. I have been trying to solve this for a couple days and nothing is working to enable the URL autocomplete. Here are some of the things I have tried - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

-Made sure the browser.urlbar.autoFill item is set to 'true' -Adjusted Firefox History settings to 'Remember History' -Adjusted Firefox Address Bar settings (Browsing History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs are checked) -Cleared cache and cookies -Reset Firefox several times -Reinstalled Firefox (without deleting profile and Firefox data)

I have attached screenshots of how my 'about:config' looks, as well as the 'Important Modified Preferences,' in case there's an error that someone else can catch.

(I am running Firefox 68.0.2 on macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5)

Ublock global filtering of 3rd party domains, when accessing someother domain, but partial whitelist of 3rd party domain when accessed directly- Is it possible?

Suppose i want to access 123newss.com, which uses technology from t.com I create a ublock "global-filter" of the domain t.com, that blocks loading of t.com at 123newss.com and everywhere else. For some reason i'm a frequent user of t.com, and whenever i try to visit t.com i have to temporary unblock the blocking of t.com. This creates a lot of friction since i'm a frequent user of this url. If i create a ublock/whitelist of domain t.com then ublock allows every tracker to load at t.com, eg. t.com visit triggers loading of 21trackers.com.

The idea is - Block tracking urls globally, but allow auto whitelisting of urls when visited directly. Analogy: prevent embedded yt videos from loading in arbitrary website, but allow when you have visited 125yt.com, without also allowing every other 21trackers.com domains at 125yt.com from loading. Sounds like containerization or "cross-site" url loading block. Is it possible or am i missing something?

Recently encountered a problem bookmarking web-sites using my tags list. When I type the initial letter, eg: o, the first tag, alphabetically, beginning with 'o' is indicated. But my bookmark is automatically saved there instead of letting me choose a preferred tag from the drop down list. In order to bookmark in my desired tag the only way is to scroll through the whole list and tick my preferred tag. How can I return to the former method? Hope someone has a solution. I have the latest firefox update.

Hello everyone.

Since the forced windows 1903 update I have a big problem with Mozilla Firefox.

Firefox is randomly freezing and closing. (I guess it's crashing). I have no idea why and I am totally lost. No crashes are detected in 'about:crashes' and I tried to reinstall Firefox completely but the problem is still here.

I have the feeling the crash occur when I open new tabs..

Thanks a lot for your help !

This broke after I installed the beta version of firefox 69. I tried deleting firefox and reinstalling (with the stable 69 version that was just released) but I still can't pick up the bookmark folders. Moving and selecting things within the folders is working, I just can't grab them off the toolbar and can only click to open them.

I have another laptop running exactly the same configuration of themes and addons that I didn't try the beta on, and that's updated to 69 and is working just fine.

I have printed to the new HP printer and this works fine, but Firefox persists in keeping the old laserjet as the defualt. I have disabled the old printer in CUPS, reset the printer settings in Firefox and deleted all printer settings from the prefs.js file, but Firefox persists in selecting this old printer first. I don't want to delete it as it was difficult to install and I might want to add it back to my network later.

I have only recently been having this problem. I have been using Firefox for about 9 months and been having this problem for less than a week. When I go to open a new link in a new tab, that tab never loads. I can open a blank tab and paste the link there, and it will load about 90% of the time.

I have 2 add-ons, the Multi-Account Containers add-on and a ColorPick Eyedropper. I tried turning off the Proxy setting, since I don't use one. And I have tried disabling the DNS prefetch thing. Neither of those suggestions have worked.

Does anyone have any other ideas? I would rather not go back to Chrome if possible. The multi-account container is a lifesaver.

Prior to FF 69, I could zoom to HUGE font sizes in Reader Mode. As a user with low vision (macular degeneration) this was very helpful. However, in FF69, zooming is extremely limited. The maximum font size appears to be about 24 point - which is next to useless for those with low vision. Is there any way this can be fixed? I tried the Reader addon, but its zoom isn't much better.
