How Can I Get My Blank Firefox Address Bar Back?

Why does my Firefox address bar have "http://search.anysearchmanager.com/?_pg=C22B9764-34B6-556E-8545-EBAFFD03F12D&affid=A1I70_set_bfr_H&type=h" in it when I open Firefox? It's annoying to have to delete all of that before I can enter the URL I want. How can I get the automatically blank address bar I had before? I use Firefox on a desktop Mac. (Firefox tells me there are thousands of results for this question, but I can't find any of them.) Thanks.

Why doesn't Mozilla offer a Mozilla/Firefox based email address? I'm tired of google/gmail. Other options are just "OK". Would love to have an @firefox.com or @mozilla.com or @thunderbird.com email address. Maybe something clever like @foxmail.com, @mozmail.com, @thundermail.com, etc.

I'd like to make this suggestion to Mozilla, but couldn't really find a great support email to send it to.

I lost over 700 tabs yesterday when FF Crashed. When it was re-opened, I only had one Tab and none of my pinned tabs were there and all the other tabs were gone. All Tabs Helper had all but about 30-40 tabs suspended and I had opened and closed FF many times in the past and it had always reopened the complete list of Tabs with all but the pinned tabs suspended. I really don't want to go into history and tell it to open all the tabs from the last month, this is definitely asking for trouble. I am posting this from EDGE so as not to screw up any chances of a full recovery if possible. Thanks, Ed

This question is about the developer tools (inspector). Sorry if this is not the right forum. If this is not the right place, please specify where I can ask this question. I have looked around but this seemed like the best place to write this.

This problem started a couple a month ago in Firefox Developer Edtion after an automatic update (to either v82 or 83, im not sure).

This is what used to be the case, prior to the update: In the developer tools, in the inspector tab. There's an overview of the HTML-tree, and when you hover over an html-element in the tree, the correspondent element in de browser window is highlighted, and when you move your mouse the item will no longer be highlighted, since you're no longer hovering over it in the HTML tree. This is how it has always been.

The situation as it has been for 2 to 4 weeks: After selecting a couple of items in de HTML tree, and maybe editing some CSS, so just after normal use, The selected element will stay highlighted, even though I'm no longer hovering over it in the Inspector window. I added a screenshot to show what I mean. This bug is annoying because when editing CSS, I want to be able to clearly see the changes I mean, but now theyre obstructed by the highlight. Toggling developer tools by pressing F12 twice fixes this obviously, but only for a couple of minutes, and sometimes the problem return immidiatly.

This problem first emerged in Firefox Developer Edition about a month ago after an update. It really messes with my workflow, and I couldnt find a solution. Tee problem emerged on multiple websites (not just the ones a was developing, as you can see in my screenshot it also happens on the mozzila website) and the problem was the same accros multiple computers (all modern windows 10 machinary, owned by me or my collegues). So I stopped using Developer Edition, and switched to using 'regular' Firefox for developing, as regular Firefox did not exibit this bug. But since last week, after regular Firefox also got an update, the bug appears in regular Firefox aswell.

So here I am, an avid Firefox Developer Edition user, desperate for a solution. Ofcourse I already tried everything from reïnstalling, refreshing firefox, everything.

Thanks

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

My older Samsung printer also runs a web server at its LAN address for administering it.

I've always been able to login from other computers on my local network to check toner, see page counts, and so on.

There is no "force Firefox [v. 82] to connect via HTTP" in my case.

Every single attempt to access http://192.168.0.100 is rewritten by the browser to https://192.168.0.100 which I gather requires a certificate to be presented--which the old printer does not offer--after which Firefox declares "Try again."

Is there a way around this so I can get back to what used to work?

Thank you.

Hello,

today I have started my Firefox and noticed that the interface is now totally broken. The close/minimize/restore buttons are missing, in full-screen mode I can't drag around the window anymore, some of my addons don't have icons or are totally broken and sometimes the interface reverts back to some Windows 98 style which looks totally broken too.

My steps to fix this so far were:

Firefox safe mode Firefox re-install Profile folders in appdata and all other related Mozilla/Firefox files and folders deleted

Funnily enough the same thing happened to Thunderbird last year, the only way to fix that was to install a very old version of TB 56 which I'm still using today. Don't Mozilla developers know how to code? All my other programs work fine.

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

So I've found that Firefox doesn't seem to detect my headset microphone if it's plugged in while Firefox is already running. Going into a Google Meet meeting, it asks me if I want to allow the use of my microphone, and only shows a device that was plugged in already (a Rift S headset microphone) - unplugging, replugging, and refreshing the page all have no effect.

If I close down and restart Firefox completely with the headset plugged in, it works.

After searching, apparently there was a similar bug that appeared around Firefox 36 (I think?) that was fixed soon after - In any case, it seems to have reared its head again.
