Norton Safe is not an option in the drop down list of possible search engines. When my husband installed Firefox, Norton asked whether to make it the default search engine, and he did. I was not given that option, and I find no way to add Norton as an option.

Google is my default search engine, and my home page always shows the Google search bar. Now that Firefox 89 has been installed, I can't use the Google search bar. When I start to enter a search string in the Google search bar, Firefox switches me to the Firefox address bar, which is annoying. I want to use the address bar for URLs, not searches. How do I disable the address bar for searches?

When using "about:config" I may have changed the "handoff" parm by accident.

Wanted to stop using the URL box for my SEARCHES and stick with the old SEARCH box because if my 'search' did not find what I was looking for, I could just change a word or two instead of typing the whole darn thing all over again. Your Forum advised to use the 'about:config' and the "Handoff" option. I may have changed "HANDOFF" default my mistake as could not find a list of default values. So, 1. What is the default value for HANDOFF? 2. Is there a LIST of the defaults, TRUE or FALSE in case I need to 'monkey' with 'about:config' in the future. I am not at all happy with some of the changes in rel 89.0 and 'messing' with the URL box, the SEARCH box, etc. 3. I tried to "go back" to previous a release and avoid/skip rel 89.0 but was forced to because of PROFILES, there locations, multiple ones and not knowing the 'most recent' to choose so was forced to use rel 89.0.

Thank You.

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

Hi!

  1. FF removed the RSS button to discover feeds. Which sucks.
  2. But it sucks even more that the feature to subscribe to feeds via external services was also removed.
  3. I also can't view feeds, even if I find one manually.

New, I saw solutions to the first one, but there of little to no use on their own. Downloading text files with feed items in xml format is pretty useless. I want to be able to view a feed and subscribe to it.

I'm using Ubuntu 21.04, with Firefox Version 89.0.1

I like my window control buttons to the left, and I prefer them on the top bar. In Version 89.0.1, I'm now stuck with two sets of window control buttons.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

So that was asked 9 years ago, and I tried adding those lines to my userChrome.css in the chrome folder of my profile directory. Sadly, that solution no longer works in Version 89.

See the attached image for my userChrome.css file, and how ridiculous it looks with two sets of window controls.

Please help me remove the minimize, maximize and close buttons when I maximize my firefox window.
