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.

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?

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?

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.

I just got a MISERABLE updated Firefox that increased the spacing in my bookmarks menu so it is essentially UNUSABLE with double or triple spacing requiring scrolling till one's arm falls off! Why is it us poor peons out here who just want to use our computers and the internet, and the Firefox they've used FOR YEARS, have to be subject to arbitrary UNNECESSARY changes made by some "developer", possible trying to justify his/her existence and/or is stir crazy in lockdown? win10 bookmarks on the right. FIX IT! And stop screwing up WHAT WAS WORKABLE! I'm not a "nerd" able to just manipulate stuff...I want MY FIREFOX BACK!

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?
