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.

Ubuntu 20.04, Unity 7

After upgrading from FF 91.0.2 to FF 92.0 it looks like the vertical spacing between the bookmarks in my bookmark tab folders increased. The bookmarks are less useful now. Is there a way to decrease this spacing?

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.

Just trying to convert to Linux from windows (cinnamon 20.2) using the same display (3840 x 2160) Firefox on Linux scrollbars are a lot narrower than on windows and menu bar icons are too small. I cannot find any settings to enlarge these on Firefox on linux.

I estimate that the windows scroll bar is 300% wider than in Linux (Using screen ruler Linux scroll bars are 6 pixels and bitwarden icon is 12 pixels)

The usability of Firefox is questionable for me like this so I really hope there is a setting to make using Firefox a comfortable experience ( I have default font set to 20 and default zoom to 150% )

Firefox 93.0 64bit Linux Mint 1.0

When I close (X) the window, my session is not restored. I have checked all the settings and verified that they are set correctly. Then, I found that when I tried to quit the program via File menu, it says that I have two windows and three tabs open, yet I only have on window/one tab open. I can not find this other window... What does this mean? Have tried refreshing the app, safe mode, and disabling the extensions that I use.

Thanks!

All of my saved passwords are gone. the password manager window is empty. i use the extension 'bookmark backup' to backup my saved passwords... key3.db cert8.db signons.sqlite signons3.txt and signons2.txt. i have one week worth of backups. i tried replacing those five files in my profile directory with each of the seven backups, and none of the backups will produce my passwords. i can see encoded information in signons3.txt but that file is very old and doesn't have my most recent saved passwords that the sqlite file has, so going back to that version is not an option.

I just upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8 and now every time I try to watch a video on a site like youtube the screen is black and it says 'an error occurred, please try again later.' But when I tried with a different browser called Galeon it played. If I clear the cache and then refresh the page it will play using Firefox, but isn't there a way to fix this? If it's a bug, when will a patch be out? Side Note: I use Ubuntu Linux, if that makes a big difference.

Issue

I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings

Description

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality. Any new bookmarks I try to create are given the title of the last previous webpage I tried to create (which wouldn"t be a major issue only a nuisance to copy & paste the correct name in) but ALL new bookmarks are directed to some version of "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/iframe3?sI" instead of the correct site. Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.

Firefox is set to "NEVER REMEMBER HISTORY" but if I go to Ford.ca, which uses java, I must enter a postal code to have access to information about "Price & Build". Said postal code remains accessible by Ford.ca... even days after my visit, while I understand that "Private Browsing" should supposedly prevent such situation. Firefox 3.6.6-1.2 came with the newest openSuse 11.3 release. The same situation prevails with our other computer running under openSuse11.2 and daily kept up to date. A solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated!

I just installed Linus Freespire on a PC that Windows XP had crashed on, and happy to have it take on a new life. When I tried to browse myspace.com, I was forced to upgrade to Firefox 3.6 and downloaded it. It said it went to the desktop, but don't see it there. Instead I get a KArchiver window with Firefox-3.6.6.tar-1 in it. I have tried screwing around with it and its "wizard" until I am about ready to trash the whole thing. Can someone tell me what i need to do to upgrade Firefox 2.0.0.6 to Firefox 3.6.6 besides getting another degree? It would be nice if there where some hints.

[Apologies, I clicked the wrong URL and shut the previous thread by mistake.]

I have FF 3.6.6 randomly crashing when I am not even doing anything. I have two websites open normally, neither of them uses Flash or any adobe plug-ins. One auto-refreshes content every few minutes, but it is text and basic JPG/GIF graphics (run by JavaScript I presume). The other site does nothing if I take no actions. But several times a day, FF just shuts down silently.

I am running on linux Mint 9 KDE Edition.

about:crashes says the URL is invalid. ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ doesn't exist; ~/.mozilla/firefox/ contains a single file called .profiles.ini - nor could I find a folder by that name in any of the directories related to FireFox.
