Recently Firefox in Ubuntu (latest version) has started adding a ?reload after every URL and in the event that there were parameters being passed, it replaces them. For example, it gives filename.php?reload when it originally had filename.php?ID=1. Since it's doing it primarily on my development sites, it makes it very difficult to reload a page when testing.

It is tiresome keep entering the same details all the time. In chrome there is a feature which will autofill all your personal details when asked to do so when entering competitions. is this available in Firefox? I don't want to have to keep using chrome! I don't just mean the autofill for logins and passwords as i have seen this. I want it for things like name, address, email, DOB etc If you could also direct me to it through the array of options in the settings. Thanks for your help

I had this problem with Safari & Chrome but I was able to fix it. I cannot get rid of "search manager." I have looked into all the items listed that I can find but every time I sign onto Firefox, I'm directed to search manager. I just open a new tab. It is NOT listed as one of the search engines. How can I get rid of it? My home page is a blank page.

As of a few days ago, the Firefox taskbar Icon has not remained independent of multiple browser windows open on multiple screens, when this has never been a problem prior. I have to right click on a window to open a new one or have all of them not in the main screen, and I don't want to do that because it is not how it is supposed to work. What has happened? I permanently have multiple browser windows open with specific sites i check every single morning when the PC gets turned on so I don't have to search for anything. What is going on peoples?

I upgraded to Quantum 69.0 64 bit a day or two ago. Today I have discovered that when I go to print a web page from FF, it does not list my home network printer as a choice. I tested other apps, e.g. Chrome and MS Word and Adobe Rdr, they all still show my home network printer in their printer list, and I was able to print to it from Chrome. I have powercycled my printer, and rebooted my WIN7 PC, no help. My home network printer lists as Canon MF4270 Daves Office. My email is daveryan.cincinnati@gmail.com

Using the latest version of Firefox 72.0.2 (64-bit) running in Windows 10. When I type into the Firefox Address bar I get Incorrect special characters. When I type a forward Slash /, instead I get a dash - the same happens with other special character using a QWRTY keyboard on a laptop. When I type anywhere else either using the Chrome and Edge Browser, Wordpad, Notepad, MS Word or inside any webpage textbox control; I don´t get these errors. This only happens when typing into the Forefox Browser address bar or any webpage textbox control when using the Firefox browser.

My Email Address is V*******6@gmail.com.

I'm currently using macOS 10.14, had been using macOS 10.12. I'm currently on Firefox 72.0.1, but I think the problems described below go back to version 69 or so.

It seems like anything I do with Firefox means that it creates a new profile and I have to set my old profile as the default, launch in a new browser, and delete the new profile. By "anything" I mean: restarting the computer; logging out and back in; updating Firefox; quitting and relaunching Firefox. The last one doesn't always happen--sometimes I close Firefox, relaunch it, and everything is fine. Sometimes I close Firefox, relaunch it, and it's created a new profile and I have to go through the little dance setting it back to the old profile and deleting the new one. Actions like restarting the computer and logging out usually mean that the icon on the dock has been replaced by a question mark and I have to drag Firefox back down to the dock to get it down there again. This is tedious and annoying, so I'd really like to figure out how to just get Firefox to keep using the same profile unless I change it for some reason. Any suggestions?
