I am using current Win10 latest release (78.0.2 64bit) and have noticed for the last couple of releases sometimes (~50%) when I click on a URL, it is set to open in a new window (which opens), the URL is put into the address line (good), but it does not execute the URL to load the page. I have also noticed the same functionality using the Home button on the top bar (sometimes it works, sometime is doesn't). I haven't altered my settings so it appears to be a feature. Is there something I may be missing in the settings?

After a recent update "Search in Yandex" showed up as a pinned suggestion in the address bar. This annoying POS shows only if a non yandex search engine set as default and removes an actual top site I use. Deleting "browser.newtabpage.pinned {"url":"https://yandex.com","label":"@яндекс","searchTopSite":true}]" does the job but doesn't restores replaced site.

To remove it correctly you have to turn on "top sites" in "home" section of settings, set new tab to "firefox home", open new tab unpin yandex from top sites and finally revert settings back to your liking.

P.S. I actually use yandex occasionally but I definitely don't need it showed down my throat (I can install YandexBrowser for that. It runs on blink so sites are showed as developers intended, use less ram, don't freeze randomly, opens faster (preloads on boot) and, check this, latest version runs on windows XP no problem). And if I want to f-about in settings of settings to change something as trivial as search suggestions I might as well use chromium. P.P.S. BTW with this update mozilla also managed to f-up search bar in a way I can't even comprehend. If I click on a site from suggestions and open a new fast enough url of a site I clicked on translates to a new tab but if I wait a bit and then open a new tab address bar is empty. (PScreen included)

Sorry for my bad runglish. Have a great day or whatever

jscher2000,

"Do you mean search engines appear even before you start typing anything to search?"

Yes, as soon as i bring the cursor to the Search box. the drop down box appears.

I opened my Home page and all of the boxes under Firefox Home Content I had unclicked during set up.

My home page is set to blank page and New Tabs the same.

I turned them back on to do as you described but the three dots never appeared in the corner and everything remained the same so i turned them off again.

Thanks for trying to help.

Hi,

I have an Intel NUC 10 i7 (integrated Intel UHD gpu using latest drivers 1.100.2731.0) and whenever I open tabs with videos the CPU consuption goes sky high and overheats the system.

Checking this page: http://jdashg.github.io/misc/webgl/low-power.html

In Firefox I get: {"powerPreference":"low-power"}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{"powerPreference":"high-performance"}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

In Chrome/Edge: {"powerPreference":"low-power"}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{"powerPreference":"high-performance"}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

Which is aligned with the lack of GPU usage in Resource manager in Firefox.

How can I fix this? I am sure I accessed the same pages in the past without problems in FF. Some update has messed this.

I'm using Windows 10 and just updated to Firefox 78.0.1 last night. Normally, when I open a new tab, I push the down arrow key to bring up my browser history and access my most-used sites. Upon updating last night, I discovered that I can no longer do this. When I press the down key, nothing happens. To get the same result I'm used to, I have to press the space bar, but I've been doing this a certain way for several years and the motion is completely ingrained in me. If I turn Top Sites back on in the options, the drop-down list will open upon pressing the down key, but that of course only brings up the Top Sites. That's not what I want. I tried rolling back to the previous version, 77.0.1, but that didn't fix anything. If I create a new profile, the problem persists. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know it sounds like an extremely minor issue, and maybe that's true, but I just want to use my browser the way I like using it. I'd appreciate any help/input.

Also, I suppose I should mention that I didn't make any changes to my preferences prior to this issue.
