Address bar autocomplete not working fully (as before an update)

I updated my Firefox from ver 59 to ver 61. I had to uninstall the previous one and install the new one from the package manager in Linux (though the profile was kept). After the update the address bar autocomplete works only in some cases (e.g "Fa" for facebook.com, "mai" for mail.google.com), but not in most of the cases (e.g "tra" for translate.google.com, "gma" for gmail.com or mail.google.com).

1) I have tried the safe mode, no use

2) Options->Search->Default Search Engine: "Provide search suggestions" and "Show search suggestions in address bar results" are ticked. Unticking does not help. // Options->Privacy->History: Firefox will rememeber history // Options->Privacy->Address bar: all 3 suggestions ticked

3) All about:config "autocomplete", "autofill", "fixup" values are default (e.g browser.urlbar.autoFill=true, browser.urlbar.autoFill.typed=true, browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled=true)

4) I checked for "Places" integrity: "> Task: checkIntegrity + The database is sane > Task: invalidateCaches + The caches have been invalidated > Task: checkCoherence + The database is coherent > Task: expire + Database cleaned up > Task: vacuum + Initial database size is 64416KiB + The database has been vacuumed + Final database size is 63488KiB > Task: stats + Places.sqlite size is 63488KiB + Favicons.sqlite size is 42144KiB + pragma_user_version is 47 + pragma_page_size is 32768 + pragma_cache_size is -2048 + pragma_journal_mode is wal + pragma_synchronous is 1" (etc... If necessary I can post more here)

I opened my FF at work today, and it showed my tabs from home. I was NOT logged into sync on EITHER machine. I have NEVER logged into sync from work, on purpose. This is very bad behavior. Fix it now before you get someone fired.

Hi for the last week Firefox has been becoming more and more problematic, it opens fine but as soon as I start browsing it freezes, it is only when I right click on the task bar icon and choose close that, when the popup appears 'You are about to close 3 tabs. Are you sure you want to continue?' and I choose no, it starts working again for a few moments and then we go through it all again. Windows 10 surface pro 3 Is firefox dead, it is my work browser and I am having to resort to other browsers which will soon mean the end of firefox for me, I can't afford the loss of time, it freezes when I upload images to various websites, is anyone else experiencing similar please?

I've not seen these symptoms described elsewhere. There are lots of discussion of "Server Not Found", but not as an intermittent problem.

1. I get "Server Not Found" on about 10-15% of my attempts to load websites. The error seems random, as there is no obvious pattern as to when and where it will occur. The same site might wor fine the first time and them the I get the error message if I try again a few minutes later, or vice versa.

2. The problem usually goes away with with a second click, but not always.

3. On a few clicks, the page only loads partially.

4. I've tested Waterfox and it seems to happen there as well. I don't have this problem with chromium.

5. Running Firefox 52, Win 7.

It seems that over the last two months firefox has been causing my hd to run at 100% for long periods. I have followed advice on the internet and disabled a number of searches within the pc settings that originally helped and also updated the power plan to high performance which initially helped.

Every hour or so my pc goes into a phase of running its hd at 100% to the point that I cannot even type in the search bar. Indeed it has taken over 30 minutes to finally get to the position of being able to type this query.

the pc is not that old and has light usage and all memory appears to be working fine. If this does not fix then I will have to go over to Chrome.
