Firefox 80.0 installed on August 27, and has diverted my Google searches to Yahoo and disabled my access to the add-ons page. This appears to be symptoms of known malware. Is there a fix yet? McAfee and MalwareBytes can't find anything.

Specifically, form entries at https://www.familysearch.org/search/ are not saved. Seamonkey works while Firefox and some other browsers do not. I've been through all the online help on this and don't think I missed anything. I know that my BIOS is not current and am postponing that adventure till I can get some assistance.

OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro N Version 10.0.17763 Build 17763 System Model HP Z1 Workstation System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E31245 @ 3.30GHz, 3301 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Procs. BIOS Version/Date Hewlett-Packard J52 v02.74, 21-Oct-16

I have Firefox set to always open Google.com when a new tab is opened. Before yesterday's update (Aug 27, 2020) the cursor would appear in the Google search bar on opening a new tab, which is the way I want it. After the update, Google still opens as before, but the cursor is at the from of the address bar instead of the Google search bar. I've tried a couple of things to fix this with no luck. What should I do?

On the page, thesudoku.com, whenever I enter data the search bar immediately takes control.

I tried the page refresh where once on the page, where one opens ctrl+R - no joy. I then tried clearing cache by going to the library and reset history, both Today and All - no joy.

The above was supplied by the tech support at thesudoku.

I went to Edge and the page works okay, but I hate Edge.

I assume that since I have yet to find anyone else with this problem that somehow a setting was changed on my PC. Still, I am having problems finding how to fix this.

Thanks J.M.

Good day everyone,

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Thanks

Yesterday, my Yahoo bookmarks (not Firefox bookmarks) on my my.yahoo.com page began displaying improperly. They are no longer alphabetized, some don't work, and they each have a grey icon for edit and delete visible next to them. They also are not as compact as they used to be, and I can't collapse any of the folders. This problem does not occur if I use Chrome or Internet Explorer 11. It also does not occur in Firefox on my laptop computer (I am using Firefox 80.0 on both machines). I have tried turning off all extensions, restarting Firefox, logging out and back into My Yahoo, and rebooting the computer. I also tired refreshing Firefox (which I HATE to do). No luck. I have included two images. The small one shows how they are supposed to look (cut from IE) and the larger one shows how they now appear in Firefox.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I use these bookmarks all the time.If you need more information, please ask.

I bought a new computer and everything synced except My password manager. The new computer doesn't list SaasPass Free Password Manager when searching add-on extensions. This was the third try on a manager I liked. My laptop has Firefox 80.0.1, and the extension works great, my new desktop computer has 80.0.1 installed also, but Saaspass is not to be found.

i just downloaded the new version onto my macbook pro, and have lost all my bookmarks and other settings which is very annoying. It wants me to sync with another device but I DON'T WANT to do that !! how can I avoid this and restore my settings/bookmarks etc or barring that, dump the new version and go back to the old one which worked fine which hopefully still has all my settings ?
