When I start typing URL's in Firefox, it will only ever suggest the URL so far as the top level domain. For instance, I frequently visit trakt.tv/dashboard. But when I type "tr" into the URL bar, Firefox only ever suggests trakt.tv - I have to manually press the forward arrow key and type in "/d" in order for it to autofill the rest. It doesn't matter how many time I type the full URL in or even the fact that I've deleted all history only visited trakt.tv/dashboard, Firefox will still only autofill trakt.tv

Is there some about:config setting I can change to make Firefox recognize and prioritize specific frequently visited URL's over just top level domains?

I used Speedtest by Ookla. When the broad band was installed, the technician did this without a problem. Today when I tried I was taken to an installation page. After I used the SpeedTest, then my main page was gone and instead I have a bar of Firefox selected options. I've tried to find how this is done so I can set it back but I can't find it. Please help.

My Firefox browser was automatically updated to version 101 today May 31, 2022.

The IMDB home page (www.imdb.com) is now broken. The drop down boxes at top right and left are displaying all their options on top of the web page content. Pages are not loading fully.

This is on a MAC. Safari and Chrome browser work properly for the IMDB page.

Is there a fix for this?

Previously to a mac OS upgrade to 11.6.1, the browser worked fine. Now, nothing loads even though all the other browsers work fine. Pages just display "Secure Connection Failed." I have gone through and executed the adjustments on the "Websites don't load - troubleshoot and fix error messages" page but it still does not work.

When I search "translate" into the address bar the first option is www.translate.com instead of just searching it on google (which is what I normally do). This happened after I searched the term and a little pop-up asked if I meant to go to the website instead. I accidentally clicked yes and do not know how to change it back. I would like to be able to type "translate" and have the google results show up first. Any help is greatly appreciated.

After firefox update to 100.0 - i can't use any of my addons, and cant install new one. All my current updates appears in "disabled" status, and there's no "enable" button. I have many addons, so it's the global problem.

Also, i can't install any of updates from addons.mozilla.org, i get message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". All addon xpi files are downloaded without problem using "save as", also, after clicking "install" on addons website i see download progress.

Please help to resolve this issue!

I just ran "C Cleaner" to clean my computer. At the end, it said to ask the browser if there is a 64 bit Windows compatible version available? It takes 21 seconds to open my browser. That seems like a long time. The message went like this "\??\C:\ Program Files(x86)\MozillaFirefox\firefox.exe" How do I know what version of Firefox I am using?

Hi Since I guess Firefox 99 - not sure ... and now in Firefox 100.0.2 CTRL + Z and CTRL + Y not working when editing in Word Press ...

It is so annoying and make you loose data and waste a lot of time.

I cannot keep saving data all the time - yes I know Word Press has its own data saving etc.

I am talking about a 'normal' operation as CTRL + Z and Y !

I am a keyboard user since the 90s (!) and use loads of shortcuts fast and makes me waste hours sometime.

Any tips, maybe in the About:config settings?

Thank you M

A few days ago Firefox started opening in a small window in the upper left corner of the screen. This problem was earlier also posted by other users. So I have read all these topics and suggested solutions.

This is what I have tried: - removing xulstore.json - compatebility tab in properties - manipulating overlapping squares icon and dragging window to almost full screen - Reinstalling Firfox ( without removing Firefox completely on forehand)

So far nothing resolves this problem.

Please advise

Hello,

the newest update to version 97.0 was run automatically. Afterwards the new print preview appears although I have it disabeled in about:config (print.tab_modal.enabled --> false). I cannot get rid of it. It is very annoying as I cannot print my labels with that menu and always have to click once more to do so. Does anyone has a fix for this?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

When I put the pointer arrow on a tab to open it the tab background turns black and the type is white. It used to be the opposite and I want to change it back to white background black type. How do I do that? I do not like this change at all. This happened right after your new Firefox update also.

I have 2 questions after the upgrade ( If that is what they call it). #1. Getting all my apps re-setup , I noticed that some were not showing up on the bar to the right of my search bar. #2. When I open FF it only opens with a half page on the left. This next jusy a polite general question. After the uproar about fvd suspension, why did FF feel the need to do it again? What I mean is why did they wipe out All my apps and deleted other programs I had BOUGHT and now having trouble getting downloaded again when they were working perfectly before 100? Are these programs also considered "Dangerous". Sorry. Could you give me an approved FF alternative to FVD and I don't mean this piece of garbage that is on your web page. You wanna throw something against the screen every time you look at it.; UGLY!!!!

I also found that some internet pages work (display english text) and some do not - I have logged a ticvket with ASUS but is anyone able to see an obvious difference between the following URLS These URLs were on the on the Firefox startup screen default webpage Note that Show source of all these pages only shows boxes with numbers in them as well so I can't clearly see on the ASUS what the difference is

The following did not work

   https://www.amazon.com?tag=admarketdeskt-22<tracking>...

but I tried https://www.amazon.com?tag=admarketdesk and this was fine - so then I refreshed the full URL with the tracking tokens - and it was working as well

The following do not work That is they display boxes with unicode values

   WikiPedia - https://www.wikipedia.com
   Facebook - displays boxes with unicode value https://www.facebook.com

The following work with proper english text

   FireFox Privacy - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/privacy/firefox/

Today I updated my wordpress site to 6.0 and now my gallery isn't working in Firefox. It works in Chrome, Edge, and Android Chrome.

I tried turning off all my Add-Ons, I cleared the cache in the browser and W3 Total Cache, and I deleted the gallery and uploaded it again. None of these things worked.

I don't know what else to do.
