This string that pops up https://www.bing.com/?pc=COSP&ptag=D080921-N9996AAA1CF2EE4B&form=CONMHP&conlogo=CT3335739

My PC immediately connects to Bing every time I connect or press the Home icon

I have used FireFox exclusively for more than 20 years - my current PC operating system is Windows 10 and I have never used Bing as my search engine

Can you please help

Hey everyone!

I had a quick, and maybe weird, question to ask... is there any way to have two separate bookmark folders that are complete mirrors of each other? For example, if I added a bookmark to one folder, then the other folder would also have the bookmark added to it.

I sure hope the answer is yes! haha. It would really help my bookmark organization OCD! :D

Thanks everyone!

Hi! I have the strictest anti-tracking protection enabled and have one question: Firefox prevents cross-site cookies by default, but if I install Firefox Containers, does that mean that those cross-site cookies will be allowed inside that container, even if they're not when browsing outside of any container? My concern is that, if that happened, using Firefox containers would actually diminish privacy instead of increasing it (for example, Facebook would be able to use Instagram cookies because they're in the same container, even though it wouldn't if I hadn't installed Containers). Thanks a lot! Love the Firefox community <3

Suddenly I can't type into the search engine bar which is mid page on my home page.

I can select it, but it stays blank and anything I type appears at top of the page in the address bar. This happens with any browser I use on my home page (have tested with Google, Duck Go Go, and a few others; same thing happens.

I'd like to get back functionality on that search engine bar mid page.

I'm operating in Windows 10, with the latest Firefox upgrade installed.

Thank you !

Hellow all

An unexpected firefox crash has completely ruined where I was before. I am completely bewildered over this one. I lost my bookmarks so I´ve selected toolbars and the bit regarding new folder but nothing happens. This step by step approach isn´t working and in no time a time out occurs. I cannot restore and opening a new tab all I get is an unstoppable wheel. It´s pretty hopeless.

Has anyone any ideas ? rich

Hello, I would like to use the search function in the tab again. How can I adjust this? At the moment it is so that when you enter it it appears right above in the link line (see picture). I would like it to be in the search below, directly in the tab. Before version 88 this was possible. Why was it removed?

hallo, ich möchte wieder im Tab die Suchfunktion nutzen. Wie kann ich dies einstellen? Zur Zeit ist es so, daß bei einer Eingabe es gleich oben in der Linkzeile erscheint (siehe Bild) Dabei möchte ich es unten in der Suche, direkt im Tab haben. Vor Version 88 war das möglich. Warum wurde es entfernt?

I am probably not tech savvy enough to adequately explain my problem.

My desktop has the latest version of Firefox and suddenly I can no longer log into my email from the AT&T homepage. When I attempt to log into my mail account I can select my user name and PW but when I press enter all that is displayed is a broken spinning blue circle that never stops and I cannot access my e-mail. Pretty sure there is a preference setting in privacy & security that I screwed up somehow.

Have disabled all add on's and security software but still get same result.

Is there a way to reset Firefox to the original install defaults without doing a complete Firefox removal and starting over from scratch? I have Chrome on my machine and email works fine. So am pretty sure I did something in settings that is causing my problem.

Printing kenken puzzles has always worked. starting on July 14, the right two columns of the puzzle are incomplete. All other programs that I have tried print fine, and a kenken puzzle in EDGE prints fine. Also trying to print other items in Firefox does the same thing. Conclusion is that the problem is in Firefox. Suggestions please.

I tried to download a PDF file, but the download failed. However, Mozilla still thinks it's downloading, shows the download meter (stuck on about 10%), and shows the file in the downloads list, even though I have deleted it from the list ("Clear downloads"). Clicking the "X" next to the file name also does nothing. What's up?

Why do I feel like, every time I upgrade to the latest version of Firefox, that I'm a new user having to jump through the same questions/hoops, close extra windows, and feel like I'm being bombarded by the combined sales forces of Google, Amazon, and ATT DirectTV all at the same time trying to sell me something?

All I want is a browser that works. Which is what I've wanted since I began using Firefox over a decade ago. I don't want to be "upsold" nor do I want "fries with that". Just a browser (that works).

Please TONE IT DOWN A NOTCH! Or you just might drive this long time customer to something else like, god forbid, EDGE! Geezus...

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!
