How can I email the link for a webpage I am on to someone? There used to be three little dots immediately to the left of the bookmark star on the page address that I could right click and easily send the page link with. Now it appears to have disappeared (6/15/2021). Help!

Hi since I updated Firefox last night, I can't seem to use the search bar anymore, I'm talking about the usual one, the search bar in the middle of the page under the Firefox globe. As soon as I type the first letter in this search bar, it writes into the adress bar, and nothing is displayed in the search bar at all, it stays empty. It's like the only option I have now is the adress bar, the search bar is useless and though it's ok for an adress it is not for a proper research. I wonder how to sort this out. Thanks for your help !

My question is: When you open a new tab in your browser there is something call web search. Is it possible that everything that I input in there can be shown in that little box below the Firefox logo. Instead of getting display on top of the website box.

address bar autocompletes to depreciated url; how to stop?

Hello,

I recently was forced to change the address of my blog from "universalism.com.au" to "universalism-au.com" (due to silly legal requirements introduced a few months back about requiring an ABN if you want to use the .au suffix).

"universalism.com.au" is now a dead link, but when I start typing "uni..." in the address bar, it always autocompletes to this old and depreciated url rather than my new one. I would like to be able to type "uni..." and have it autocomplete to the new address, "universalism-au.com"

I have cleared what seems relevant from my browsing history, but no luck. Is this perhaps being caused by my default search engine (duckduckgo) recommending the wrong address?

I have attached a screenshot if this helps.

So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

I have been trying some Software that the PC user can use, to change a data file so that Firefox will show only the text that the data file contains. The data files that I have been working with are .doc, .docx, and .rtl(?) and have even tried .html. But so far I haven't found a format that seems to work with Firefox. Has any body any ideas? This area that I'm working in is rather new to me, and for that reason I seem to keep going around in circles.
