I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

When I try to connect to the site for my internet provider, I am connected to the companies site for businesses. Ii have tried my cell (OK), my laptop (OK), and Safari (OK). so it looks like FireFox has become confused about the site meant to be accessed by that URL. Suggestions on how to reteach FireFox, please.

Every time I restart my up-to-date Firefox I must dismiss a pop-up nagging me to update Firefox. I would like to know when an update is really available, but these nags otherwise are counter-productive. How can I stop them? (I use the release channel.)

I went to update this morning when asked and then got the "profile missing" error pop up. I searched for the folder as advised but its no longer in my library folder.

Any suggestions? I really need the info in firefox and would not have even updated if i knew this was even thought of happening.

Also, tried to download and install firefox again and still get the same error..

I've noticed that every now and then I come across a website that doesn't function properly. For instance, right now when I try to browse https://www.parts-express.com/ the page will load, but when I try to view things by clicking on the menu, it will stay on the same page. I've had to use another browser to search this site.

Another thing I've come across is paying for things. A few times already I've tried to make a purchase and it would not go through. I called one of the places and they said it was because I was using Firefox. The payments went through when using a different browser.

Is this common? Is there something I can do to make Firefox work universally?

My desktop browser updated to 91.0 yesterday (08/16/21) and ever since then, pages on multiple website are looking weird. Gmail is missing dividers for new messages and any sort of rounded corner is just no there. YouTube button on videos have a semi-transparent white fill. Some sites, I'm unable to see buttons at all. Twiiter looks all kinds of weird. I was using the dark theme, which I've tried turning on and off (and have also tried going back to the default) but it hasn't made any difference. I've also updated today to 91.0.1, but see no change. Any thoughts to what could be causing this?

Thx K
