I noticed occasionally that an odd entry might come up every now and again in the address bar auto-complete, and they always had a little blue star. Turns out that's the "bookmarks" autocomplete option. Once I located one of them, I searched through my bookmarks to try to delete it, but it is not there. I actually went through and deleted all of my bookmarks in Firefox save two, and lo and behold there are still dozens, possibly hundreds, of "bookmarked" suggestions in the autocomplete bar. For instance, woot.com; I used to have it bookmarked, but since I haven't used it in months, I deleted it. Yet when I click on "bookmarks" in the address bar search, woot.com shows up among a dozen other entries which are clearly not in my bookmarks.

I checked my other browsers and cleared their bookmarks as well, although none of them had woot.com bookmarked as far as I can tell. I deleted browsing history older than 6 months and searched through both my bookmarks and history, finding no entries for this. I went to the Options menu, Privacy and Security, and Address Bar, and disabled "Bookmarks", and found that doing so DOES in fact prevent these supposed bookmarks from being suggested in the address bar when typing.

I'd like to be able to remove these old, outdated suggestions from my address bar while still leaving the bookmarked page search function working. Where is Firefox pulling these old bookmarks from? How can I delete them?

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.

I made changes to my about:config that improve the privacy of my browser, but I realized that I want to keep the default settings in firefox developer edition as I do web development. Is there a way to export the about:config settings that I have modified to the normal version of firefox so that I can use it for personal stuff?

When I visit "elofootball.com" with Firefox, "Atlético" is shown as "Atl�tico". When the page is not yet completely loaded Atlético is shown correctly for a brief moment (first screenshot without country flags). After the flags are displayed "Atlético" becomes "Atl�tico" (second screenshot with country flags). So it doesn't seem like the characters themselves aren't supported by the browser because Firefox can display them, just not once the flags are displayed as well.

Edge and Chrome do not have this problem, they just show the page like you'd expect without the � in the place of characters with accents. Any idea what might be causing this and can it be fixed?

Bonjour,

J'ai fait un nettoyage avec Avast aujourd'hui, et cela a complètement perturbé mes marque-pages : dans un premier temps, ils sont restés affichés mais je ne pouvais plus cliquer dessus. Puis, j'ai éteint mon ordinateur, et quand je l'ai rallumé, la plupart de mes marque-pages avaient disparu. Certains sont restés...

J'ai tenté de faire une restauration (datée d'aujourd'hui), mais cela m'a remis la même version.

Est-ce que vous savez ce que je peux faire ?

Cordialement, Clémentine

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Using an online accounting website, data entry is done through a data grid with a data control.

The accounting software allows for the option to use their own date selection control or to use the Firefox date selection control. I don't like the software's date selection control, I prefer Firefox's. However, when set to the Firefox date selection control AND if the fields in the data entry grid get wider than the screen, Firefox shrinks the date selection control to practically nothingness and the value in the control cannot be seen.

Is there something I can do stop Firefox from doing this?

I've attached an image containing 1. the data entry grid 2. the Firefox date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen 3. the software date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen

Hi,

A firebox browser automatic update earlier today has resulted in various pages I visit subsequently crashing the browser.

It is particularly problematic because one page that now crashes is my Barclays Bank login page, which I normally check every few days.

I know that rollback of updates is not recommended, perhaps not even allowed, but surely if an update results in a page like Barclays crashing the browser then there must be a fix pending?

Please do not reply with "try another browser" or "try your phone" - I don't do banking on my phone, and find both Chrome and Edge packed with too much ad crap, making browsing painfuly slow.

I would prefer you to reply with "Here is how to fix it so you can continue to use Firefox..."

Kind regards,

R
