I use the following crossword site:

https://thenewdaily.com.au/puzzles/quiz-crossword/

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Cheers, "Sunbury Bob"

Before the most recent update, if I typed something into the search bar on the start page it would offer suggestions from the bar. Now the suggestions drop down from the address bar. Can this be reverted? The arrow in my screenshot is where the suggestions used to show up. The rest of the image is showing where they now come from post update.

I has taken many years of work for Mozilla to create a usable internet browser, and now you have taken that away. How was the Person who decided to put the search option into the URL. This is not only unsafe, but makes the Start page, useless. When I type in the Search I want to see it being input into the middle of my Start page like it has always been done, not waist a whole page for nothing. It is not only a stupid idea, it is also a waist of the text that us used to create the Start page. I would also like to note that many of the mobile, tablet and other computers all use this method, and it is rubbish and removes the point of having a page with a search text box in the middle.

for god sake can you please stop trying so hard to be the best of the best, Firefox has always been the best, and you seem to be trying your best to destroy it for many many users.

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

When I try to connect to the site for my internet provider, I am connected to the companies site for businesses. Ii have tried my cell (OK), my laptop (OK), and Safari (OK). so it looks like FireFox has become confused about the site meant to be accessed by that URL. Suggestions on how to reteach FireFox, please.

Can't Bookmark Tab/Tabs

Running Firefox 89.0, Win10. I usually bookmark all tabs in a window to a named folder under Bookmarks Menu, for example Folder1, Folder2, Folder3, etc. Recently, the dialog was stuck to a previous folder, lets say Folder2, as the default, instead of the normal default of "Bookmarks Menu". If I bookmark Folder4, it will want to put it under Folder2 as a subfolder, unless I manually change it to Bookmarks Menu, but the next time the default will go back to Folder2. After trying to manually set the default back to Bookmarks Menu, without success, I tried renaming Folder2, thinking the default will go back to Bookmarks Menu. This didn't work, Firefox chose the new Folder2 name automatically. So next I opened all the tabs in Folder2, deleted the Folder2 in the bookmarks manager, thinking that if Firefox couldn't find Folder2, it would fallback to the old default of Bookmarks Menu. Now when I try to bookmark anything, the save dialog is blank and the only thing I can click is the cancel button. How do I fix this? I have hundreds of tabs open, since the session manager I used to use is no longer supported, I was in the process of saving windows into bookmark folders. I'm worried that restarting Firefox will lose some of recent changes to my open windows/tabs state since the last time Firefox "autosaved?" my session

Thanks

I REALLY dislike the new bookmark pull-down feature, which has larger fonts and far too much space between bookmarks. Now I have to scroll (for which I can't use the mouse) to get to the bottom of a long bookmark list. I prefer older versions.

How may I change the appearance of this feature?

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?

On 6-2-2021 the Firefox /browser was automatically updated (errgh!). Now, my tabs are all gone and the History is empty. They were not merely recreational or random. Please help. Thank you in advance!

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.

I don't know if I'm the only one who used this feature, but when I opened a new tab I could just drop some copied text in there, go to another tab do something, then go back to that new tab where the text was copied, take the copy once more from the bar and go back to the previous tab. The text in the new tab didn't disappear all the time when new tab was "opened". Currently in version 89.0 this functionality disappeared and when I change from new tab to other tab text from the "search bar" disappear, the funniest thing is this functionality saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to play with any notepad or anything to store copied things. Is there any option to bring it back?
