Ctrl-K puts a question mark in the "awesome bar"

This morning I brought up Firefox on my Win10 64 system as I always do, and immediately hit "ctrl-k" to get the cursor into the "awesome bar" (which is set to all three tick boxes in the privacy & security -> address bar settings.) Usually I enter shortcuts (set in bookmarks, like 'gm' for mail.google.com) so that I don't have to type in the full address. However that didn't work today because every time I hit "ctrl-k" a question mark automatically appears in the "awesome bar". It will search just fine but if I want to go to a web site or use a short cut I have to backspace over the question mark or it will just search for what I'm typing in. I tried clearing everything (ctrl-shift-del, tick all boxes, "for all time") and still the problem persists. I also unchecked all three tick boxes in Privacy & Security -> Address bar and it still happens. Disabled all addons and problem persists. Help! This is seriously getting in the way of my work flow. Please let me know if there's any information that you need. I consider myself a power user so don't be afraid to dive into the weeds if need be.

Thanks!


and I see that it's running 65.0 (new version?).

I think I misunderstood how drastic "reset Firefox" would be, I have the tabs back but the only way I see the URLs they represent is to initiate autocomplete, then even when I click on the url I wanted it doesn't go to the site (sometimes I'll get the "loading" dots on the tab which leaves me even more perplexed)! I dunno was I obligated to set up sync before I did the reset? Nothing told me to do so or how to do it. I'm typing this on Chrome because it's still working OK but none of the pages come up on Firefox anymore. Can anyone explain how I can back this out of this disastrous condition? How would I know exactly what was causing it to be all but shut down like this? Tell me is this some kind of drastic overkill on security or something? Is there some SIMPLE test I can perform to quickly figure out what needs to be changed? The ONLY reason I did this was BEFORE I STARTED I couldn't get any downloads to proceed beyond zero bytes in size, so for right now I even bypassed Windows Firewall so I'm "wide open" looking for a solution, PLEASE HELP ME GET THIS THING WORKING AGAIN ASAP!!!

Just got a refurbished PC and since the beginning, Firefox (and Chrome as well) have been crashing every 30 min or so on all kinds of websites even when minimized with nothing running in the foreground.

Things I've tried - firefox safe mode - fresh, clean install of my NVIDIA graphics driver - updated my Realtek audio driver - disable hardware acceleration

Here are some of the recent crashes

Hi guys, I've had this problem for a few months now on both my laptop and desktop. It only happens when using firefox and doesn't seem to affect other browsers. When trying to navigate google images with the arrow keys (with 1 image selected as the hero image in the middle) that the arrow keys only work sporadically. They might work for moving to the next 2 images then stop working, then if i click with the mouse they'll navigate 1 image across then not work again. I have to browse through images every day and this is putting a huge brake on how fast I can do my job. Any chance someone has come across this before as I can't really find anything on it?? Cheers

All I see in these community things are The QUESTIONS on the topic but NO SOLUTION. WHAT happened to Firefox, it used to actually WORK! Now it just ignores what I say and does it anyway. I have it checked and unchecked where it is suppose to be so that it DOES NOT update! YET it still does it! SO when is Firefox going to give SOLUTIONS instead of just adding another question to the same stuff... we know a lot of people are having the same problem... SO when are you guys going to wake up and FIX IT!

My firefox just updated and is now forcing me to have a default search engine connected to my address bar. I never used the address bar to search and don't want to start now. I've tried all the settings and it doesn't give me an option to remove this new feature. It gives the option to change which default search engine is connected to the address bar, but it doesn't give NONE as an option, or let me set it up so that the default search engine is only used for the search bar and not the address bar. I also can't restore my previous version. Is there any way to resolve this issue?

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and have downloaded Firefox a number of times (each time doing a clean uninstall with Revo uninstaller), but cannot get Firefox to run at all. Each time I put in a search I immediately get the 'Gah. your tab just crashed' message. I've done a Windows crash report on the latest event and this was the result:

some wordpress sites can not display correctly. ex. https://clayfanshop.com/ it looks css files doesn't work.

The site works correctly other browsers, Google chrome, Edge, IE.

Clear all cache and cookie, but nothing changes. I installed Firefox on another PC, but it had same problem.

Not only the site, the layout of login page of my wordpress is broken (css files are not working), so it is not the problem of wordpress theme or plugins.

Good day guys ,

Basically what I want is to make facebook.com logout when I close firefox and enter again. This should be possible by just going to >Cookies and site data >Manage permissions and blocking cookies for facebook.com but the problem is this option for firefox is completely useless , doesn't do absolutely anything as I'm still getting cookies saved from facebook.com , therefore every time I open firefox again my facebook is already logged in.

Is there any alternative solutions to this besides checking the box "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" ???

Because I don't want that either...cause that means I have to log into every site separately every time I open again firefox...I only want to do that for Firefox.

Thank you

Hello, I will include a screenshot with the details. I am on Windows 10 October Update. I appear to have 2 versions of firefox on my laptop as you will see in the screenshot, they are both x64, one is version 57 and the other is version 64. Can i remove the older version (57) without it affecting the other version i have installed (64) ? And i would like to know how or why this has happened ? Why do i have 2 versions of Firefox instead of 1 ?

If you can help, can you talk me through it step by step ?

This is only with firefox. i can open google, chrome or anything an still have internet connection. I am now get this message Network Protocol Error Firefox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.
