I am using Firefox version 100.0.1 (64-bit) and whenever I try to search in the search bar it will not provide me with any search results. I stays on the same page it was on before I hit enter and the address for that website reappears. If I click on the drop down menu and select a website, it will take me to that website, unless the website is Google.

Now on Firefox 100.0.1 On earlier versions of Firefox I was able to set a particular url for my home(opening) page. That is still true. However, on past versions I was also able to make *my home page* appear on every tab I opened. On the current edition I get a choice of only Firefox Home Page (default) or Blank page. I cannot get my home page on the new tab. How can I bypass the restrictions of the settings under Home to get my home page on every tab?

That the question I need an answer to. Everything below this is explanation of why I want this and a complaint about how Firefox changes things that I would appreciate being passed on to the developers.

                                                                    <---------------------->

If I choose Firefox Home Page (default), I am *forced* to use the address box to put in my search terms. I have become accustomed to the various search engines with their splash screens - with the nice big search box in the middle of the screen (both horizontally and vertically). It is absolutely unnerving to me to try to type in the box in the middle and have nothing show up there but up above in the address box.

I am a project person in a multi-tasking world, which means whether I like it or not, I have to multitask too. For me to do this successfully, all my tools need to be where I expect and perform as I expect them. Even putting duckduckgo.com in the current home page/new window setting, doesn't get the duckduckgo splash page, but even though I'm not that technically advanced, I found a way of getting it in my home page window. However, the tabs section doesn't offer me an opportunity to put my own choice in.

I wish Firefox would stop tinkering with otherwise minor things. I understand fixing found vulnerabilities. I understand providing new services and technology when they're developed. But why force people to use search and tabs the way Firefox wants them to rather than the way the user is accustomed to.

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

Hi All

I disabled the group-by option everywhere in my Win 11 home. Now I can open any folder and avoid that useless feature... except if I open the download folder from Firefox.

Details: - if I open my Downloads folder from the desktop shortcut I get it normal (no group-by) - if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox Library/Downloads window, then the windows folder is shown with Group-by enabled - the same happens if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox's download toolbar icon

Does this happen to others? Thank you Stefano

I have tried to get help regarding the 2 problems that I feel are related. I use Norton as my security system, they say that Firefox is up to day. When I try to start Firefox it takes two or three times clicking on the icon before it stays open. Then when I need to open a new tab to go to a website that I have opened a hundred times, sometimes it will not even open the website and other times it will open but not let me sign in. On the sign in page to error this morning said: Bad Request - "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of request header field exceeds server limit."

It will often just say it can't start that page, try again.

The "try again" has been going on for awhile, the Bad Request is new. Please help me with this problem! It is beginning to get annoying.

Thanks for your help. [email and phone# removed from public view]

Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

Up to today if I click on a link in Outlook email it would open in Firefox (both set as default) If I change browser default to Chrome, links work. I'm at latest update in Firefox. If I right click on email link, copy, paste into Firefox, links work OK. Mouse icon will spin for a few seconds and there are no error messages. Not aware of any changes. Restarts of PC, Outlook, and Firefox (even tried troubleshoot mode) = no help.
