How to disable firefox "visit this website" suggestion in url?

Firefox keeps suggesting random websites in my url bar with "visit this" on first line, even though I configured to suggest only my bookmarks and nothing else.

The answer to similar questions here were to go into about:config and disable "browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete" option. But it seems Firefox team has deleted that option, it is no more there, I can't find it.

I disabled all suspicious browser.urlbar options and its still not helping.

Honestly, while operating by muscle memory I accidentally hit enter and go to those random sites and it drives me super really mad, it breakes all my workflow and thoughts. If there is no solution in order to save my nerves and mental health I'm gonna have to move to Google chrome or even Microsoft browser for that matter.

Hallo,

My problem with Firefox is, that sometimes I can not click on bottons on a website or scroll down menues do not open. When I try it with a different browser it works. An example is, when I try to log into my google (Gmail) account. I click on the top right button to sign in. Then I enter my email adress. After entering my email adress I try to click on continue but it is just not going to the password entering site. It´s not taking my click.

At various points in my usage of Firefox, if my default home page isn't ChillTab, and even sometimes when it is, Firefox will randomly quit and restart with ChillTab as the default. Virtually every single time it has happened I was in the middle of watching a video. What's worse is that Firefox will demand updates so as to change the homepage to Yahoo.

Firefox keeps updating even though I set it to ask and have set app.update.url to nothing.

My Firefox updated to 66.0.2 (from an unknown prior version, probably 66.0.0) even though I have 'Check for updates but let you choose to install them' radio button ticked. I also do not have search engines set to automatically update, nor do I use the 'background service' to install updates. After my Firefox updated, I went to about:config and set app.update.url to "", and toggled some of the previously mentioned settings to get them to 're-stick' to not update anything. Also all my plugins are set to not update.

Today on April 10th, my Firefox automatically updated yet again to 66.0.3. Why is my Firefox updating when it should not be?

FireFox will not play the news clips from FoxNewsChannel, the circle just keeps rotating without ever connecting. They play fine on Google.

This seems to be a fairly recent problem, maybe a week or two I think, because there was no problem before that. I use DuckDuckgo for my search engine, and I have windows… (read more)

This seems to be a fairly recent problem, maybe a week or two I think, because there was no problem before that. I use DuckDuckgo for my search engine, and I have windows 10 on a Dell Latitude E6520. As I stated in the problem sentence, using Google browser plays the clips fine.

ich erstelle über ein imkerprogramm die Beiträge, die mittels Sepa Lastschrift eingezogen werden sollen. Bei dem herrunterladen der Sepa Lastschriftdatei bekomme ich seit diesem Jahr die Fehlermeldung das die Datei scheinbar keine Verknüpfung enthält, und es wird eine Textdatei im Baumstrucktur angezeigt. Anfang letzten Jahres lief es unter einer 32 Bit version noch. Was kann ich machen um eine Datei herrunterladen zu können die ich auch einreichen kann? Vielen Dank im vorraus!
