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.

Since the last update, all the drop down menus on FF are double spaced. This creates a problem with favourites. Apparently this also occurred in 2017 but the problem was fixed. Will the next update put the menus back as they belong?

The proton changes might make for a better smartphone experience, but it really trashes operations on computers. In case you are wondering why firefox's share of the browser market continues to slide, upgrades like "proton" are the main reason.

Current problem is the following:

Whenever i press the "w" key a search bar opens in the bottom of my browser. This is the search also accessed by ctrl + f. I need this gone since it bothers my ability to use the browser. I cant find it being a keybind from firefox or duckduckgo so i really wonder what caused this.

I'm using a web app that uses this shortcut (alt+shift+s), but every time I press this to trigger that action annoying menu bar pops up with the history panel opened. I've already disabled menu opening while pressing alt by making [ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses to false] . Now how do I disable this? Also, It would be great if I could remove this menu bar altogether permanently.

This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.

Can this be turned off?

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?
