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.

The browser tools (not web developer tools) aren't opening. I could make a guess that it's because I exited my firefox session before closing the browser tools. I will say that now "Disable popup auto-hide" is always on. I wanted to customize the browser with userchrome.css and was doing a good job until I couldn't open the browser tools.

edit: I found out that when trying to open the browser tools 1 or sometimes 3 new processes run, but only for a few seconds.

After updating to firefox 91, the option to disable proton is removed and now it's not able to turn it off. Proton looks good in some aspects, but I want the seperator between tabs back.

I keep hundreds of tabs in one firefox window and use some of them daily, without the seperator to show the boundary of tab I have to move my mouse carefully to click the correct tab I want, which is disturbing. The ability to work with hundreds of tabs is the reason I use firefox, the designers of proton seem not to have this in mind. Is it possible to offer at least an option to bring the seperator back?

Dear Supporter,

I got a notification from a website that FireFox is not up to date. On closer examination, this is indeed the case. Updates were supposed to be done automatically.

I changed Ubuntu's update server to main server; this had no effect.

In settings preferences under updates I see: FireFox Updates Keep FireFox up to date for the best performance, stability and security. Version 88.0 (64bit) Whats new Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

There is no option to check or disable for automatic updates. As far as I can remember, update to this version was automatically.

In settings help under About Firefox nothing appears about updates.

Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS notification: system-up-to-date I assume that should be allright?…

Thunderbird is 68.10.0 That seems ok...

Thank you very much

A maximum number of times when I full screen Firefox some of its border also displays on the second screen I use which is rather annoying.

Is there a way to fix the problem? I've also uploaded an Image showing the same, I know the background and the borders look kind of the same but that is the Firefox border above the Sony logo.

In Settings > Search > Search Shortcuts, the help text currently reads "Choose the alternative search engines that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter a keyword."

This seems to imply that entering keywords into the search bar will bring up alternative search engines. However, this is not the case; only the address bar responds to Search Shortcut keywords, while entering keywords into the search bar will pass the entire string (including keyword) to whichever your default search engine was.

Either the wording has to be modified to clarify that search engine keywords only work when typed into the address bar, or search keyword functionality has to be enabled on the search bar.

It looks like I'm not the only one. I want to make yahoo my search engine but it's no longer an option in FF tools. I don't like google but even Duck Duck Go, reverts to Google. What's going on? I know I can add Yahoo or DDG as an add-on but that brings me to yahoo's website. All I want is for the yahoo search engine which used to be in tools and is no longer there. I've been using the yahoo search engine for years and about 5 months ago or so, after an update it disappeared. Even though I have Duck Duck Go as my default search engine, doing a search it changes to google. Please don't shove google down our throats. BTW, restoring doesn't help and I use the search bar for searching, not the address bar.

I had about 5 you-tube download add-ons, I always had the download text under the video, and buttons on my tool bar, everything Disappeared and I can't download any videos. I removed all the you-tube apps and reinstalled and nothing changes, is there an add-on that will give me the download option? I am using windows 10 and everything I have has been updated, and I have been doing this for years so something has changed.

I have gone into my Add-Ons and enabled the "Show lower RoboForm toolbar" option. But every day when I open Firefox on my Windows 10 computer (fully updated), the Roboform Add-on lower toolbar has been unselected. I have to go back into Add-Ons and re-select it every day. How do I make this stop? It used to happen once in awhile, but now it's every day. I use RoboForm many times a day, and this is really annoying.
