When I updated to the latest version of Firefox (83.0), I noticed that the process searching with the address bar had changed a bit. Before the update I would type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then see the results right away. Now I have to type text into the address bar, click one of the search buttons, and then press <ENTER>. How can I get the previous behavior back? Those buttons along the address bar drop-down are called one-click search buttons for a reason.

I recently purchased a new laptop. Wanting to have the same tabs, history and saved logins as my desktop, I wanted to sync my desktop Firefox account with the new laptop. Both are windows 10 and up to date version of Firefox. When attempt to sign in to Firefox on the laptop, I get an "Incorrect password" message. I'm using the same email on both computers (only have 1 email anyway) and have had the account and used Firefox for years. Anyone have an idea of what is going on? TIA!

So, my mouse has thumb buttons, when I press them the browser either goes back a page or forward. When I play a Youtube video in full screen and press the 'Back-Button' it should load the youtube main page, the address bar shows youtube.com, but it just reloads the video I was playing.

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

How do I show the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar at the top of the tab so it stays there all of the time? I have searched online and on Mozilla Firefox help and the instructions do not follow what I have on my iPad Pro 11. There is no place I can view or select or customize anything to do with the Bookmarks Toolbar or Menu. When a select the plus sign to open a new tab there is nothing but a search text box so I have no other choices. I want the toolbar and menu options to display all of the time. How do I make that happen? I have the latest updates for iPad Pro 11 and as far as I know for Firefox as well. Someone please help. I have been struggling with this same issue for days. I would attach a screen shot but I do not know how to do that using the iPad. Thank you. Marie.

Prior to the release of update 78 I used to be able to click on the address bar and it would bring up my top 20 or so site. I don't know why, but this extremely easy to use and accessible feature was removed. We are now on update 83 and the problem has only gotten worse. I've attached 2 pics in an attempt to showcase this tragedy that Firefox has created. I don't understand why I'm limited to the number of sites in the dropdown. Worse yet, only 1 of my most frequent sites are listed in the 6 sites I can choose from.

If you're attempted to make things easier for me, you've utterly failed... miserably! Also, not only am I limited to sites I DON'T use, I now have "Sponsored" web sites. GET OUT OF HERE WITH THIS NONSENSE! I now have 8 site to choose from, 1 of which I use. Remember, I use up to 20 web sites per shift so Firefox showing me 7 I don't use is extremely time consuming and frustrating. If only I could pick from my top 20 sites, like I could since I started using Firefox more than 15 years ago, then perhaps 2 "Sponsored" sites at the bottom of my list wouldn't be such a bad thing. Remember the good ole days when Firefox was customizable.

I understand that SPACEBAR is now the way for me to view my most frequent websites and that is a longer list and more accurate that the initial dropdown. Why do I have to click spacebar? This is unnecessary. Is there a way to make this spacebar view the default dropdown view when I click on the address bar?

Lastly, since, update 78 I have made several attempts to remove the "Search with..." at the top of the address bar. Can someone please come up with a viable option for me to move this redundant feature? The address bar itself can perform searches. I have the default search bar clipped into my browser. That's 2 places I can search... I don't need a 3rd search option in a dropdown that already takes me to where I want to go.

I swear, it's like no one over at Firefox even cares about the users anymore they just keep making changes that limit options and give us no recourse to correct their "fixes" that break my experience and productivity.

Hello, I have problem with YouTube. When I am clicking "Share" button I got screen with infinite loading. The same issue happens when I want to open menu by clicking on my avatar. On dev console I am getting a POST error: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/401

I tried to: - clean Google/youtube cookies and stored cache; - clean then all cookies; - relaunch Firefox with all addons disabled; - enter via private mode with/without addons; - flush dns on dev console; - disable completely antivirus; - change DNS.

What is interesting, that problem happens only when I am logged in to my Google (YouTube) account and only on Firefox. Even on private mode it works until I do not log in to my account.

I would be very grateful for help.

I frequently do a lot of diverse research, and try to maintain a strict subject matter thread in each open window. As a result, I have 150+ windows open, each with a number of tabs. Even with the win 10 bottom taskbar expanded all the way, it is difficult to find a particular window, as they are all randomly displayed. Is there a way to alphabetically sort the open Firefox windows shown in the win 10 taskbar? Would this be a Firefox function, or is it a Windows function? Any assistance would be appreciated!

Hello,

Some "Smooth Scroll" settings changed in FF 82, and my scrolling now is not as "smooth" as it used to be. (I still have FF 52 installed and it's much better).

I've modified "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS" and "general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS" to 400 and 200 respectively (default in older versions), but the scrolling is still jumpy.

I've also tried playing with "mousewheel.acceleration.factor" and "mousewheel.acceleration.start" but it didn't help.

So I have a dual monitor set up. It flickers on my main monitor whenever I do something that causes movement. For example hovering over tiles for youtube videos I can select, switching tabs, selecting the address bar, etc. But on my secondary monitor this issue doesn't exist (and I've tried to replicate it). I have tried the same actions and websites on google chrome on my main monitor to see if I can recreate it and narrow it down to a monitor problem however I couldn't get the flickering to occur once on chrome on my main monitor. If I place firefox in a neutral position (split between both monitors) and create the flickering it only flickers on the main one. This happens when the window isn't taking up the whole screen as well.

My main monitor is 1440p, 165 hz, gysnc, my secondary is 1080p 60hz. Any idea what the issue is?

My desktop computer has somehow lost all its settings. Not sure we properly backed everything up. If that is bad enough I cant make Mozilla Firefox my default browser. I click on the options setting (upper right) then make Firefox the default, then go to "Default Apps" under the computer main settings, Firefox does not show up as an option.

If this makes any difference I also have Microsoft Edge (new version) installed, and so Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome show up as options but not Mozilla. Additionally, every time I restart my computer I have to log back into Mozilla and have lost all my settings!

How do I make it so that Mozilla shows up as an option to choose as my default browser, and configure it so I dont have to log in each time and lose my settings?
