I'm trying to completely turn off the address search bar function in Firefox. It' so annoying! I go to google. Start to type in the search bar on the page but all my typing ends up in the address bar. So frustrating! If I wanted to search from the address bar I wouldn't have gone to Google to do it. I DON'T want to search from the address bar EVER! So please don't say 'why don't you just..x,y or z'. I've managed to turn off all the address bar suggestions and whatnot with about a dozen different setting which is ridiculous. Turning off the rich results should fix everything but it doesn't. No mater what I try I cannot get text to appear in the Google search bar. So basically Firefox has stolen the functionality of the Google webpage for me. I've been using Firefox for a long time but lately I'm been questioning why a lot. Anyway, any suggestions to stop Firefox from hijacking my search would be appreciated.

I'm posting this as a question because other ones on the topic are closed for comments

Anyway, I seem to have found the solution - sync clipboards using ClipIt (http://clipit.rspwn.com/) or some other clipboard manager

My case - hopefully FF devs find this useful: 1. Paste works - I paste screenshots, text copied from terminal, and other stuff 2. Copy text from FF page, or hitting a copy button on a page, works only partially - I can paste in other GUI apps but not in terminal

   The snippet does appear in ClipIt. When I select it, it becomes available to paste in terminal

3. Copy text from FF address box works - I can paste anywhere

The recommended solution from FF support is to "reset", which means "factory reset" - this doesn't solve the problem and kills all yous addins, bookmartks, settings, etc. FF support stop suggesting stupid solutions!

I have also played with the settings - there was something there wrt copy/paste - it worked for a few hours

My guess is that Firefox is doing something wrong when placing things in the clipboard. Placing in the wrong clipboard or maybe you should place it in multiple clipboards and please make it configurable in case you screw it.

Hellow all

An unexpected firefox crash has completely ruined where I was before. I am completely bewildered over this one. I lost my bookmarks so I´ve selected toolbars and the bit regarding new folder but nothing happens. This step by step approach isn´t working and in no time a time out occurs. I cannot restore and opening a new tab all I get is an unstoppable wheel. It´s pretty hopeless.

Has anyone any ideas ? rich

After BIOS update and replacing the CPU (9900k stepping R0) and updating the drivers for the video card from nVidia (without which it refused to work), this started like this. There were no other changes in the system at all. In addition to the impossibility to close the application normally and the full load of one processor core, as can be seen from the Task Manager, there are no other problems, everything works as usual. I've tried disabling all extensions (there are only a few of them). I also turned off hardware acceleration. I didn't reset the browser settings, because so far I really don't want to do this unless absolutely necessary. Also, my browser sent a dozen reports with logs.

I am trying to understand why this is happening and change the settings that I made changes to (as far as I remember), but nothing seems to help at the moment.

My screen shot tool disappeared this week, as did my "share" option (email, Twitter, FB, etc.).

What happened? How can I put them back on my toolbar?

Also, looking for a hopeful solution without having to add a third Firefox bar. It makes my screen (small laptop) too small.

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

Trying to use the seach box in the centre of the Firefox homepage (google search engine) .. everything I type goes up to the address bar . Tried changing settings - I see there's a search box option in the 'tool bar' which looks to be up at the side of the address bar. cant understand why we need another one as well as the one in the centre.

Also by turning off suggestions and not choosing the 'search box option in the 'tool bar' , the address bar is now only accepting URLs so searching isnt working.

So ..1. Is the search box in the centre no use?

        2.  Does search work with all suggestions turned off?
