Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

Why does Firefox change my PDF viewing choice from Adobe to Firefox?

My OS is Win 7 Pro 64-bit, and I'm running FFv. 81.0.2 32-bit.

I have my Windows system set to open any PDF file using Adobe Reader. 

All PDF files show the Adobe icon, and open with Adobe from my desktop or my other browsers (Pale Moon and Internet Explorer). However, in FF, they open using FF, and change all my settings and icons to show as FF icons and all PDF file to open with FF. I have all my settings in the FF options to use Adobe Reader for all PDF and other Adobe documents to use Adobe Reader, but FF still insists on opening PDF files and changing all PDF icons to the FF icon (i.e., breaking the PDF associations with Adobe Reader that I had previously set). I have to go into my control panel to associate the PDF extension with Adobe each time this happens.

How can I stop FF from doing this?

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

A new feature (Firefox 73), presumably related to the URL bar Page Actions, is the popup of twitter and email icons that appears when text is selected on a webpage. The text is also yellow highlighted. This behavior occurs in safe mode, so it must be a Firefox feature.

The popup is intrusive. How is it disabled?

I very often have to visit a (company internal) webpage where the url is something like

        https://internal.company.com/blabla/whatever?func=test&id=XXXXX

where XXXX is changing (it's a document identifier)

Now I'd like to be able to reduce this to something like "a XXXXX" and to have firefox to automatically expand this to the full link. It's a bit like a custom search with a keyword. Is this easily possible?

Hello,

Following the Firefox 76.1 update, all my folders are no longer displayed, the Fishing folder is missing.

Between each folder, I inserted separators for a better readability.

I can add it by dragging and dropping via the bookmarks to the personal bar, but it disappears after restarting Firefox.

Hello- Please clarify the article "Multi-Account Containers" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers#w_open-links-in-new-tabs-and-containers .

The article doesn't describe how, and it's not obvious to me. Please describe specifically how to do this. Thanks!

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

In my Windows 10 Version of Firefox, when ever I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember', the option to 'Ask to save logins and passwords for websites' is greyed out.

I do not think this combination is correct, as I want set my Firefox to 'Never' remember History but at the same I do want the option that If I do setup my user-id & Password on a new website, I want Firefox to prompt me to Save or Remember Password.

On the same token, If a password is changed Firefox must prompt that password is updated in Firefox. This will not be prompted if I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember'.

The Image I am sharing is my current settings, I did not want reset it, as I then have to reload Firefox, re-do a lot of thinks, like Booksmarks etc.

My installed Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit).

If there is work around let me know the solution. Hope to hear soon.
