Google is my default search engine but when I make a search in the address bar it gives me results from https://mybrowser-search.com/search, which is labeled as ' Google Custom Search' on the results page.

This started after updating the browser. Changing my default search engine to Bing gives me normal results on the Bing page. Changing it back had no effect on the Google outcome.

The CSS element, below, is not rendered properly in the current version of FireFox for Windows. I first noticed it with the introduction of FF 89.0.

If a web page with this element is scaled, the image contained within the element does not scale. This element renders properly in other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Samsung, etc.), and the current Firefox for Android. There may be other CSS elements that use some component of this that also will not render properly, but I didn't test for them.


.pixHolder a { position: relative; display: block; background: transparent url(xxxxxx.gif) no-repeat 0 0; /* image does not scale */ border-style: hidden; height: 100px; /* size not relevant */ margin-left: 20px; z-index: 20; }

How Do I Shrink Recent Bookmarks Dropdown List ? I don't NEED or WANT to see a list of ALL my "RECENT" (unorganized) bookmarks. I can't find an option to activate the "dropdown" function in either main preferences or menu customizing. If I "remove" them from the list, they are also removed from where they were saved as a bookmark. If the answer is, "This can't be done.", then I am DONE WITH FIREFOX.

I finally turned off the menu bar some time back and started using the Bookmarks Menu Button (the little star with an underline). With v89, the dropdown menu from this is huge. The fonts are a lot bigger than in v88, and for some reason, there are now two "Manage bookmarks" items, one at the top and one at the bottom. Is there any way, either official or through userChrome.css, to choose a small font? I already have a userChrome.css that I used to remove items from the old Bookmarks menu on the menu bar, but those don't apply to the BM Button.

I am having issues with activation of an existing O365 subscription. After hours working with Microsoft Office support the issue is still not resolved.

That is seemingly unrelated to Firefox, yet when trying to resolve the issue I uninstalled O365 twice, I could not open Firefox. I received the error "VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found". After reinstalling O365, I was able to access Firefox but all of my bookmark folders are gone.

How do I recover those bookmark folders (with hundreds of bookmarks--if they're permanently gone, it will be a significant loss). AND why would uninstalling O365 affect Firefox?

The latest update to Firefox trashed creating Bookmarks!!!

Instead of given an option on where to file a new bookmark -- as it had for years -- it places in the last location selected and closes the dialogue box.

To fix things require Editing the Bookmark to save a new Bookmark where desired.

Update prior to this one created problems with background colors and spacing's, now another update trashes to Bookmark function...

Is someone from Google of Microsoft trashing Firefox intentionally?... or is just someone who doesn't know what they are doing or care?

I use FireFox quite some time on my iMac. With the version V89.0.1 I have problems with FaceBook Messenger videochat. The screen of the partner stays black. I only see my own little video screen on a black screen. Normally after allowing my camera and my mike to be used I get a message: Calling And when answered the other partner shows up on large screen. Now the text is different : Something like : Waiting for other partner to join. And the large screen stays black. The other partner can see and hear me. I tried with another browser (Brave) and then all functions well. But Brave doesn't support the Picture-in-Picture function that FireFox has. Till last week I could use the Picture-in-Picture function in Messenger Videochat. It was great to have the minimized video screen of the videopartner on top of all other programs I open.
