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.

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 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.

Hi all, I have downloaded the new firefox 89. I have always had the Google search text box selected for display on my Firefox page. However, I can no longer enter text into it, all text I enter is re-directed to the firefox URL search box. So what is the point of being able to specify a search engine display on the homepage and how can I change the operation back to what is used to be - and indeed SHOULD be. When you select a text box for input by placing your curser in the box, text should ALWAYS be directed to that cursor position otherwise you have complete mayhem!

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.
