Search with ctrl-k no longer works when keyword.enabled = false

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

From my research it looks this is supposed to work with Ubuntu as well? It is not working for me, is this possible?

This is really not specifically about Firefox Sync or Firefox itself, but I can't find a better match.

 Months ago I changed my email address with Firefox Accounts.  I currently log in with the new email address and I only see the new email address under my account preferences.  But when I add a new device to Firefox Sync, the "Complete Sync Setup" email is going to my old email address, meaning the one I previously used with my Firefox account.
 Can anyone suggest if there is a way to change this or if there is something I am doing wrong?
 Thanks for any help!

Once again my account is locked on one of my computers. It says the email was returned but there was no email sent to the address. Oddly, the account is locked on one machine, the one that has been logged on the longest, but my other three machines have no trouble connecting and syncing. This seems to have happened after firefox updated itself (even though I had it set not to. It also removed all the settings I had spent a considerable amount of time customizing)

Firefox won't stop showing Website in Address Bar suggestion

I have cleared all of my history multiple times, and still, when I search something on my Address bar, earlier sites show up. This is especially annoying, as I had cleared my whole history a while ago, so it doesn't take up as much space. Earlier, when I wanted to go on Google (My default search engine is Duck Duck Go, but sometimes i need Google because Duck Duck Go doesn't show what I want), I'd just have to type "g" and press enter. Now when I press "g", it shows "gamingjs.com". How can I get rid of this Website?

Also, even if I type "google", the first suggestion is still "google - Search with DuckDuckGo".

I can't provide a screenshot, as the address bar collapses automatically when I make a screenshot.

in the new version of Firefox 86.0 the " print preview " has been removed = WHY???

I now have to install an additional add-on again!

I don't understand why this was done, what sense or logic does it make? And can't even Firefox run for a few months without a change?

What advice could you give me on how to get back to the old "print preview"?

The logic that remains for me is to change the browser soon.

With kind regards

hello,

I use SAS University Edition to learn how to improve my SAS knowledge.

It's installed via a VM and once installed, you just have to type http://http://localhost:10080/ in the browser to open the SAS session. It worked for months, until new releases of Firefox. I disabled the HTTPS only mode on Firefox.

Now I get a Firefox error message "Cette adresse est interdite - Cette adresse utilise un port réseau inhabituel pour la navigation web. Par mesure de sécurité, Firefox a abandonné la requête." Forbidden address, due to unusual network port usage.

How can I log on my virtual machine? Where are the parameters that restrict the access to http sites and how can I manage them?

Thank you for your help, PY

I was wondering if their was a way to switch the find bar bar back to the old way of searching. The way it is now is annoying. When I use find it's usually the same search across multiple tabs. Now I have to open the find in each tab and if I change the find in one tab it doesn't change across the other find bars so I now have to change each individually. Thanks.
