Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

Hello there,

So, my issue is that some websites, only on Firefox, are logging me out as soon as I enter my mail + PW.

Those are the right ones for sure, and I tried in Troubleshoot mode to see if the issue persists, and it does.

Hence my request here, did someone encounter the same problem and managed to fix it? If you have any idea about what's worth trying, I'm all ears.

My FF and my wife's FF has been updated on 2 laptops (V. 89.0 64-Bit), introducing the new themes. Now when I modify my theme, the other laptop takes over the same theme automomously. It seems to be coupled somehow - how can this be?

Problems that I faced: 1. There is no firefox window opened, but "new staff train - google drive" window name still appear. Please see attachments. ( the "new staff train" was a window that was closed long time ago) 2. Normally, when one minimises a window and clicks the firefox, the minimize window will pop up, but now it won't.

I did try to delete, uninstall and reinstall firefox, but the problem still exists. Please advise what I can do to solve this inconvenience. Currently, I'm using Firefox 89.0

Why, when searching in the middle of the home page, does it shift up to the address bar to continue the search. This is really annoying when you are searching a phrase that is not a website.

Is there a way to disable it?

Would love to just go back to my old browser look, but if not, is there a way to: 1) Not have the "floating" tabs? In other words, have the tab outlines clearly showing? 2) I find it very annoying to see the "PLAYING" constantly popping-up in my tab when playing solitaire. Is there a way to disable that?

On major updates to Firefox you sometimes get a one time message about some new feature, etc. When you respond it does not come up again. I do not want to get any one time messages after an update. Is there some option besides 'kiosk' mode to accomplish this?

Thank you

Firefox updated itself this morning to Version 89.0(64-bit) on my Windows 10 desktop. Now, when I open a new tab and start to type an search term into the search box on the Firefox home page on that tab, it begins typing in the address bar instead. Is this the new normal, or a glitch?

English isnt my first language so sorry in the first place.

Firefox has the option to WHAT to show when you enter a LETTER in the ADRESS BAR.

You can CHOOSE what do you want to see when you type in a LETTER. I choose not to show anything from my timeline or ANYTHING ELSE except GOOGLE and DUCKDUCK And even with the settings set Firefox does not care.

Why arent the settings working?!

The recent update to the Firefox browser on my Mac now defaults to the search bar at the top of the page as I type and provides a stream of unhelpful suggestions. Previously I was able to type in what I was looking for in the Firefox search bar in the middle of the screen unhindered until I had completed the sentence and then press search. I would like to reset it back to that. I have tried to change it via Preferences but it didn't work. Thanks for any help. Trekker.

Website with silly login form confuses username completion

Hey!

The UK Met Office (UKMO) has a General Aviation (GA) service where they publish weather charts and such: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/services/transport/aviation/regulated/aviation-briefing-service-guidance It's a free service, anyone can create an account.

The login page, however, has a slightly odd way of collecting the username and password: https://logon.metoffice.gov.uk/Login?goto=http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/premium/myservices/

On that page, there are two <form>s, each containing an <input> element, one for the username and one for the password. The login button is just some javascript which fills in a third, hidden form and POSTs it. Once I have logged in and Firefox has offered to save the password for me (I have to tell it my username because the forms confuse this step too), it never manages to complete both forms. It only autocompletes the password.

Is it possible for Firefox to learn how to cope with this form? I suspect convincing UKMO to fix their website is unlikely, and they're probably not the only offender...

I have noticed since Firefox 89.0.2 that when I press Ctrl-F to search a page it seems to work for a while but eventually stops working resulting in Phrase not found - but I know the phase is on the page.

I think if I restart my system it works sometimes for a while and later quits working but don't know how many times it works before it quits or what happens to make it quit working but it doesn't last long.

I have already done all the clear caches, history etc. and think if I totally restart my system that gets it working again for a while.

If I copy/pate the same URL into Chrome and perform the same search the phrase is found every time without fail.

Since I use the search frequently I don't think it was a problem in versions before 89.0.2 or I would have noticed it.
