I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?

My thread "Firefox 76 beta "verify your identity to reveal the saved password" was deleted? Please explain.

I didn't get an answer of why my microsoft login info was not accepted, but I did discover that if you want to reveal the passwords saved by firefox 76, you must create a master password.

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

Leaving my computer on/open through earling morning 5-6-20, find on my screen the following of I encountered, and wanted to report!

Asking first... Was this a ligitimate request? And then continues, actions I took,... to view control panel for dates of possible instals 'by recent dates',... intention to uninstall(s).

We're Sorry Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore tabs and windows when it restarts. To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report (?-checkmark box) Tell Mozilla about the crash so they can fix it Details (?) Add a comment (comments are publicly visable) (?-checkmark box) Include the address of the page I was on (?-checkmark box) Allow Mozilla to contact me about this report (?)Enter your email address here Your crash report will be submitted before you quit or restart.

I cancelled the checkmark, of the 'screen box asked for the query-report', did not submit! Then hard started-shutdown my computer!

GUESS WHAT? My OPEN SCREEN had a BACKGROUND of a CHINESE PAGODA and LAKE MURAL! Not anything I consciously I would open with!

Continuing I went to Control Panel! Control panel showed a 5-5-20 application, Publisher Google Chrome, I didn't install or reinstall this 'date period'! Next line showed a 4-29-20 application, Publisher Google Chrome, I'm sure I didn't need to install or reinstall, but while I often daily go to Google Search.

I've realised that once in a while my anti-virus (BullGuard) detects Trojan and I didn't think much of it because I thought my anti-virus would just get rid of it but just about 10 minutes ago (BullGuard detected it at 20:53) and when I open it and realise it's detected a Trojan about 5-6 times and it's automatically put it to quarantine which I have now deleted and forgot to screenshot beforehand, but it seems Trojan is attached to firefox somehow? I got Firefox about 2-3 weeks ago-ish so I am not sure why this is happening and I am concerned, is there anything I can do? I am currently running two full scans with BullGuard and Malwarebytes. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

I trust Firefox to keep my paswords safe without a lot of hassle. Suddenly I am being asked to "verify my identity" before I can view my password. I don't have time for this. It clearly says in the Logins and Passwords tab that my identity is sgillies12@gmail.com. Then it refuses to give me the password because it says that's NOT my identify.

PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. I need to do some work. thank you.

Since the last update [76.0 (64-bit)], whenever I enter a fullscreen mode in any media player on a website (e.g. Youtube) I can no longer Alt-tab normally, even if I close the fullscreen. Instead it takes 3 times to switch to another window - first press of the Alt-tab combination causes Firefox to lose focus but remain on top, 2nd press returns focus onto Firefox and then the 3rd one actually switches to another window.

This also occurs when simply switching to fullscreen on any other website as well (by pressing F11).

This also causes any newly open windows to be displayed under the Firefox window.

Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc minimizes the window normally and the issue does not occur then, however, it occurs again whenever I go fullscreen.

The problem occurs also in the Safe mode. Antivirus did not find any issues, so I don't believe the cause to be external.

OS is Windows 10 Home, 64-bit.

I like to have my Favorites Icon in the exact middle of the screen. I was able to do this by first adjusting the URL vs Search sizes with the drag and THEN with customize add the Favorites icon between them. After a recent update this no longer works. When I add in the icon the URL & Search bars jump back to their original position. They no longer remember where they were set. This is definitely different, and a loss.

I've got a local HTML file that I use as a home page and I'd like to replace the new tab page with it as well. The recent update (76), have broken my previous method of doing this. I did this using an autoconfig file described by user cor-el's answers to the same question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251199.

After the recent update, my browser fails to read the .cfg on startup and tells me that each time I open Firefox ('failed to read the configuration file'). For transparency, the code in that .cfg file looks like this:

// Do not remove this comment

var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

var newTabURL = "file:///path-to-my-page/index.html";

aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);

aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

Not sure how to put that in a code format on this forum. If anyone has any idea why the recent changes have broken this or a way to fix it, I'd appreciate it.

Edit: I've figured out it fails on the last line, as commenting that out causes it to no longer fail to read the config file. Can you not set the newTabURL anymore? Has it been renamed to something else?
