Hello -

As I stated in the subject line, "Cannot Stop Updated (Current) Version of Firefox From Diverting Search Engine Search to URL Pane" I have been doting over this for an hour. I have set the respective about:config settings to the recommended setting. (I forget off the top of my head what the string was at the moment) But I did as directed. Refreshed the about:config. Logged off the Firefox browser. Cleared all the caches manually. (i.e., even though I have Firefox to clear everything when I close the browser) Restarted the browser. Problem persists. I DON'T like searching out of the URL pane! I like it like it has ALWAYS been prior: Using the search engine (I currently am using Google) search pane.

I have added NO browser extensions to cause this either by the way.

HELP.

Hope you can fix this asap.

I'm going to have to immediately abandon firefox browser to continue working, as this is unworkable for me.

again - the issue is: right click menu - some options are GONE (example - open in new tab or window)

Seems to happen (so far) only in google results search

Noticed this after update to Firefox 89.0 --- am Using windows-7 professional /64

I TRIED to get a screen shot of this (thanks for messing THAT up, as right click for THAT doesn't work now EITHER).

So I tried to do a screen shot using ALT + PRNT SCRN - but when I try that, the very thing I am trying to take a screen-shot of (the right click menu box) GOES BLANK / WHITES OUT. (so I cannot even show you a picture of the issue.)

Could this be some kind of a conflict / issue with: adblockers? extensions? add-ons? Google itself?

thanks (crickets)

Firefox 89 Unstable / Unusable

Following a recent update to version 89, a previously stable Firefox installation is now almost completely unusable. Just getting to the point of getting to this page where I am writing this post has seen THREE Firefox crashes, as switching tab to my email so as to get the verification code for my mozilla account was seemingly too much for Firefox to handle. Viewing Facebook messages and scrolling up to see comments made earlier in the day sees the layout of the page completely screwed up (main content shifted to bottom right corner, scrollbar shifted elsewhere, part of the page blank) and at that point trying to switch to another tab creates a strange hybrid situation where some of the contents from both tabs is merged together and is then the only content visible no matter which tab is then clicked on. Using Google Maps works for about 30 seconds and then the entire page flashes repeatedly with every move of the mouse, before this triggers a browser crash. I can be reading content on a news website and suddenly the tab crashes for no reason, and in most cases the browser then crashes thereafter. Restarting the browser and the news page tab will be shown and begin to load but then immediately crashes. These are just some of the issues that have occurred within just the past 2 hours, but this is a cumulative effect as Firefox has been becoming increasingly unstable to this point after updating to version 89 earlier in the week.... No other changes have been made since updating Firefox, here has been no Windows 10 updates, no other applications have been installed or updated, no other software has been either added or removed.

I could run the previous version of Firefox for several days, leaving the computer running but idle for a few hours each day, and still come back and resume where I had left off without issue. Now with Firefox 89 it is struggling to even go 30 minutes without tabs or the entire browser crashing. When can we expct a fix, or is there otherwise a way to roll back Firefox to version 88 without having to do a full uninstall/reinstall...?

I am mainly accessing these websites through my bookmarks. I also get this error message sometimes when using Google Chrome. My Internet security provider is Kaspersky.

I have been a Mozilla Firefox user for years, today I used CCleaner and since, have not been able to use Firefox as I wish. I downloaded a new Firefox Browser, installed it, was able to use it for a short while, but when I stopped using the computer for a while and came back to it, I can only get Chrome, and cannot get Firefox up and running again...I have even uninstalled Chrome in the control panel, but it is still popping up when I click on my Firefox icon!! Help!! FF is my default browser, has been for years!!

I have tried to attach a screenshot of Google on my computer, it won't let me attach it, no matter where I save it. How do I get them out of my computer? I need help!!

I have tried task manager, 7 instances of Firefox w/0% CPU, No instance of Chrome showing.

As a realtor, I use a professional software at NavicaMLS.net. When doing a "map search" the map refuses to populate and show the map background. I have not changed any settings. It worked previously and today, it won't work. Cleared all cache. Shut down computer and unplugged for 15 minutes. Restarted computer (desktop Dell) and maps still will not populate. Software works fine in Chrome. I would much rather continue using Firefox. What can I do? Thanks in advance. - Craig -

CTRL + A + BACKSPACE in quick sucession moving cursor and not deleting word

Hi There,

I am using Firefox after moving away from chromium based browsers and have noticed some odd behaviour from Firefox build 89.0.2 and would like some help if possible.

The issue is, when typing quickly and i must remove the entirety of my input, i will press CTRL + A to highlight all, and sometimes hit the backspace button quickly and it will only move the cursor to the far left and does not delete the selection.

This is not the only issue with combo shortcuts, i have realised that CTRL + C sometimes will not copy the selection and is causing minor annoyance with using this browser.

If could be user error, however, the same usage on other browsers/windows UI never has this problem, and i am strugling to find information about this online hence the post.

Any information would be greatly apreciated.

TIA Brad

Firefox 89.0 for MAC is a disaster. Tab toolbar is above the URL bar -- Horrendous. Worse yet, is that tabs and links are loading SO SLOWLY!!! I have deleted history and cache. Have rebooted and reloaded. Still a mess. Can I go back to previous Firefox? How do I do that? Is there a way to fix the slow load. I am just hating this new situation. A total mess.

After this update to 89, page I'm on magnifies to 500% without warning. This keeps happening and I don't know what I'm doing to make it happen. Very frustrating when you're playing online bridge and suddenly, you can't see the cards. How do I fix this? ( yes, I can go to view and revert to normal. But why do I have to do this at all?)

on a website my college is using for part of its curriculum, I tried to use the ctrl + F "find in page" feature to find the "caret" character ("^") in my textbook, but when I hit the button to find the next match, it doesn't find anything but it also doesn't change to say "Phrase not found" like it did on this page before I started typing this post. I'm not sure what's wrong, but I think I might've just stumbled upon a bug similar several previous bugs like [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1299464|this] and [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1320495|this] by the way, there also seems to be a bug with the "insert link" button on this forum. I selected the words "this" above, but it keeps trying to set the word "this" as the target for the link with nothing in the "link text" field, and since there is no support article named "this", it will just use the default markup text for when the input is invalid ("http://example.com this" with brackets around it)... pretty sure that's a bug as well right?

I'm a little frustrated with Firefox and how things are setup. First, when I had a Firefox or Mozilla I changed computers and when I signed in on the new computer I went to for stored files and hit the start button and went to where my files were stored they were missing. Just now, I guess I asked for help and I to hit the contact button and then hit it again till finally I got to a page that I could at least ask someone for help. So who ever sees my question please try to help me or tell me the secret to asking support. I asked this question before thinking support would see it but I had zero reply's. I guess I asked a stupid question and the no reply was what? A reason not to reply? They didn't have an answer? Who knows? I just wanted to find out about my stored files. I'm I supposed to reconnect my old computer to find them? I have another question about printing and Firefox's unique way of storing them different from other browsers? I'll ask that later. Thank you for enabling me to be able to search without worrying if it's private. Others browsers don't! Please try and help me. Not everyone has deep computer knowledge so I do need help. Thanks, Rob A
