How can I change URL Bar settings back after FF83 update? Bookmarks & History show up inside URL bar. Also have to click twice when switching between search engines

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

Installed 83.0 update for my Firefox a few days ago and noticed that fonts in browser looks worse. It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox. Could it be a bug with latest update or what is it?

As the title says, a couple of days ago I noticed that all progress bars in YouTube thumbnails have disappeared. The "Watched" text is also gone. I tried clean reinstall, removing all add-ons, but it did not help. Just to check, I installed Chrome - everything visible (see image - FF left, Chrome right), which would suggest that something is up with Firefox. I also check the history settings on YouTube, everything is turned on, and I see viewing progress in thumbnails when I'm on the history settings page, but not on "normal" YouTube.

I would appreciate any sort of help or advice. My life doe snot depend on this feature, but I really like it and it helps navigate YouTube more efficiently.

For the past couple of month Firefox lags at startup. It takes the program around 15 seconds from the moment I click the icon until it's ready to do anything (with a blank window as seen in the screenshot). I've tried refreshing Firefox but it didn't help. When I tried opening it safe mode it still takes more or less the same time to start (except without the blank window). After that I tried deleting my add-ons (which aren't many, adblock and fb container) but it have any effect. I'm running it on a laptop with I7-8750H processor and 16 gigs of ram so resources shouldn't be a problem (cpu at no more than 50% at program startup). Please advise.

Cannot Maximize Windows without a Massive Border of White Dead Space and Forced Resolution Change

I restarted my pc last night, and when I opened today I was met with the following issue. Whenever I maximize a window on my primary monitor (3-monitor display), it goes full-screen but only shows a portion of the content. It brings with it a huge white border (pictured in screenshot) that registers as a portion of the desktop (or perhaps just not as a portion of the window). By that I mean that when I click in it, it is as though I am clicking out of the window and onto whatever app or object is operating behind the Firefox window.

Changing the zoom does nothing. It just adjusts the size of the display within that same limited portion. Strangely, when I drag the window onto the second or third monitors, it will maximize without issue. Returning the window to the primary monitor, however, recreates the issue. When in this mode, I cannot access the menu nor tool bars. My only way to manipulate the window is to right click in my taskbar, "restore" to a non-maximized state and work from there. When not maximized everything functions normally.

I disabled all add-ons and plugins, but the issue persists. I have no fullscreen background applications which should be affecting the application or its resolution. When I launch, in safe mode, it is better. I can maximize. The border is still present, but I am able to access the menu functions with the alt key. My software version is current. The drivers for my GPU are current.

Again, this issue happened overnight with no changes on my part whatsoever. I shut my pc down after a day of work. I booted up today to resume work, but I am unable to do so until I can solve this issue. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I have my homepage set to open up 4 different tabs when I start Firefox. When I have Firefox open, and I am finished browsing various sites I want to return to my home page and close all tabs not related to the home page settings without closing the browser. However, clicking the home page icon merely opens up the home page tabs, while leaving all existing tabs open. Microsoft Edge does not do this. How can I set Firefox to do it the same way Edge does it?

I have tested versions 78.5.0esr, 80.0.1, 81.0.0 and they all display the page correctly. Versions 82.0.3 and 83 do not.

Anyone know whats going on?

I have a PC with 2 monitors, so sometimes I get to work on one monitor while I keep the second one with a video, a news site, or whatever... I have noticed that when I open FireFox on Monitor One, and drag out a Tab to create a second FireFox Window and then a site on Monitor One ask me to drag and drop something, FireFox Crashes... at first sight I was on the believe that it was random, but with the last update I notice that when I drag something from my desktop to the FireFox Window 1, instead of the picture of file, it appears a shadow of the FireFox Window on Monitor 2... I hope a I'm being clear, but if not... let me tell you how this happens this at daily... "On Monitor One I open Firefox, open WhatsApp, a client send me a link to a video, I open Link in a tab, drag out the tab to create a separated Firefox Window and move it to Monitor 2 to keep the chat whit client on WhatsApp while video keeps running on monitor 2, I see something and take a screenshot and save it (on desktop, images, documents any place), take the file and drag it to Whatsapp, but instead of the file it looks like im dragging back the tab i previously drag out, and then FireFox crashes..." So FireFox Crashes several times a day, I don't know if there is a way to fix this problem, or if this is a major issue (and if it is, i'd like to you let me know how to report the bug)

I'm having a problem where when i watch youtube videos they don't properly load the video as im watching, it will load a tiny part to just then stop the video and load for ages without really coming anywhere. I got this problem probably a few days ago and it seems to only be when i watch videos via youtube on firefox, i tried with chrome and it works fine. I have tested my network speeds when this has happened and they are normal, looking at any other video site/streaming site it is working all fine. I have tried with some steps i found when looking for a solution. These steps are to turn of hardware acceleration or clear the cache, i have tried turning the hardware acceleration off and so far (only tested it for 5 min) it seems to be working and i have not cleared my cache as i have a fresh install of windows and firefox. I would like to be able to have hardware acceleration on because i use the browser a lot while playing games or working and i use multiple tabs and instances and it would benefit me more with it on. Something i also have seen and checked is updates for drivers, everything is up to date.

Anyone know any fix or if it is a problem for others or anything that could help?

Search engine shortcuts in address bar

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

After last App and FF update I'm receiving Security Warning (screen shots uploaded). This appears in several FF versions. Same app is 'secure' in Chrome and IE (screen shot from Chrome). How can I solve this problem?

Hi,

I need to do some big extraction of instagram for my sociology thesis, for this I need to scroll down multiple opened webpages at the same time.

In Firefox I know the auto-scroll feature with the middle of the mouse, but I need something like that that works in the background and stay still while I work in other pages.

Do you know a way to do it?
