I might have accidentaly reset my firefox browser and since I wasn't logged in I kind of lost all my bookmarks and saved logins. Luckly I found some backup files, seemingly with all the information I need, but it's in the wrong format and I have no clue how to import them to firefox. The screenshot I have is of the files I managed to dig up.

When I start typing in the "Search with Google or enter address" window, firefox gets me to the address bar and suggests scores of useless suggestions. The question does not stay in the window. When I am solving a crossword puzzle, I am getting useless suggestions - cannot finish the task. Same with other situations. It seems the the programme is trying to guess what I want? How can I disable it? All this have started after the latest update. I have mozilla Firefox 89.0 (X64 en-GB) I have installed in my computer Google Chrome as well and it works perfectly well - so it is not my computer acting up! Please help Peter

I am 84 years old and have limited digital skills. My computer is 2003 Dell Windows 7 running with Firefox at my deceased brother's suggestion. I do not know how to get my email back to normal size - it is now so small it could be ant tracks. If this is not the correct group, could you pass it on.

   When I go to other sites eg, Amazon, Weather, etc these present in normal size.  Can you help me get my email back in normal size.  My address is a @gmail address.

I have had a firefox account for over twenty years, now I cannot get in contact with mozilla AT ALL, all because someone decided I had used the wrong login. I cannot login because YOU do NOT recognise my password. You should leave well alone. When something goes wrong, then **I** will contact you like I am trying to do now. I have just read the blurb on the rigth-hand side of this page. It states "Our Community is here to help Kindness is at the heart of our community. Our volunteers are happy to share their time and Firefox knowledge with you. But, I saw the message that I had to login. But no explanation as to HOW I am to do this when I cannot login to my account?"

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.

Dear Community,

Something I use every day for work is the Google search for "hotels near Brooklyn, NY" (for example or any address in different cities), which I then choose the first photo map result.

And almost always, even while in troubleshooting safe mode), the map will always load (and expand and contract), but unfortunately the hotel description results on the left will not populate (even though it begins to populate - and then disappears. When it doesn't, I constantly have to reload the page to make it work. I haven't seen this problem in 5 years, and Google Chrome (which I hate using, but used to test against Firefox) has no problems loading the page each and every time (regardless of the address or city name I use). This began occurring within seconds of updating to the latest Firefox version. I suggest experimenting a few times so you can see the problem develop. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page and select page 2, to also see this lack of population.

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.

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 new version 89.0.1 forces Google to search in the address bar. I dont like it. I cant read it. The results are not what I'm looking for. I want to retain old Home and ditto new Tabs with Google and Often-used 'favorites'. I cant disable it for Home or new tabs and I wish to keep my old home screen as it was and tuned to my taste.

Why the change without options to keep?

Hello everybody!

I just updated my firefox to the newest version - and I absolutely hate the new design. Is there any way to "keep" the newest version, but have the older design?

I know that installing the version before the design got updated would be a possibility, but for various reasons I would like to avoid doing that - at least if there is any other option. If not, I'll just have to do that I guess.

Help would be very much appreciated!

Greetings
