Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

Linux Firefox not accepted by online sales websites in Zorin OS and Linux Mint

Zorin16-Linux version 99.0 Ubuntu Canonical 1.0, -found in Help/About. Firefox recognition of version below says 91.0. Also have Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia). Computer 15YO Dell Dimension 900.

I've had no problems with Linux Firefox for many years. I do not use any other Non-Linux OSes. Linux Mint updates Firefox regularly and so do I in that OS. I'm currently in a free version of Zorin which doesn't seem to push out updates, so my Zorin Firefox may be sadly out of date.

At any rate, today in Zorin, when I went to several of the bigger online sales platforms, they refused to accept my Firefox and suggested Chrome, Opera, and Safari; Target suggested Firefox.

Went to Mozilla to try and upgrade, but it didn't offer the Linux browser automatically when it read my computer. I was only offered the Windows browser. This may be because the computer is an old Dell Windows machine that I converted to Linux or it may not. I've never had this happen before.

Yesterday in Linux Mint, in which Firefox is upgraded at least weekly, the same thing happened once with a big online retailer. They said my browser was outdated and unsafe.

What's going on? I'm wondering if Linux OSes are simply not being accepted when the big retailers are doing software upgrades, or is something going on with Firefox?

I'm on a Macbook and suddenly Firefox is no longer displaying pages fully. It seems to only grab text and styling and a few seemingly-arbitary but consistent images. I've uploaded an example image from trying to view forums.somethingawful.com. This started last night when I was trying to close some other apps with CMD+Q but they lagged and I ended up closing a bunch and I thought I had accidentally mashed some other CMD+key combo that put me in some funky render mode.

Chrome on this laptop works fine. Firefox on my PC logged in to the same Mozilla account still works.

I've tried: - Restarting my laptop - All the steps in this document: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently - Creating a new Firefox local profile through about:profiles - Ensured View > Page Style > Basic Page Style is checked - Deleting the Firefox and Mozilla folders in Caches, deleting Firefox from Applications, and reinstalling

I'm now on a blank install with zero add-ons or extensions, but it's still not displaying correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am using FF 64 bit, latest version (91), on Win8.1. Out of nowhere, FF has ceased to load any pages but mozilla's own pages like the help page I'm writing on. I've no themes installed and 2 windows open with approx. 155 tabs. I've tried turning of hardware acceleration, checked for proxies, updated FF, restarted FF, checked the Windows firewall (all permissions granted) and avast antivirus (ditto), checked for malware with avast antivirus - but all to no avail.

I am at a loss with this problem and kindly ask for advice. Januario

Hi

I'm working with Firefox 91.0 (64bit) and Windows 10. The newest update has changed something, that I need to change back:

When I klick on "bookmarks" (Lesezeichen), the space between the bookmarks is much bigger than before, nearly double. Same thing, when I rightclick on an image etc. for download: much bigger space between the lines for choosing.

I have heard there is a way to correct that in about:config, but I don't know what to do there and I also don't dare to change anything there without knowing exactly what to do.

Can you help me? Thanks a lot

How the issue started: There is an issue where firefox sometimes freezes when copying an image from discord. I'm pretty sure this is on discord's end since I think it also happens with chrome and if an image does it it will always do it. Anyway, I froze firefox via that bug. I force quit it. When I reopened it, I had the issue described below. The issue persists after a normal quit and reopen and over a full computer reboot.

The issue: I'm not entirely sure how to describe it. If a box is supposed to be black or grey, it's max white. Every box, including bounding boxes around controls, even the fill bars on videos to make them fit the aspect ratio. If it's supposed to be a transparent completely bounding box, it's full opacity, if it has partial transparency, it has the same opacity it's supposed to but is white. This doesn't break black or grey pixels in images, nor does it break text, it only breaks boxes. My suspicion is that firefox's graphics driver has its fill function broken or something? I'm not sure but the issue makes firefox incredibly difficult to use.

Please help ASAP. This makes firefox incredibly difficult to use. I don't want to switch back to chrome, but I will if this is not resolved soon because of eye strain.

See attached images for screenshots of common sites to compare with how they are supposed to look.

all the websites look weird. I've included a screen shot of youtube for reference. Disabling add-ons didn't fix the problem. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it but that also did not fix the problem. I haven't tried deleting my user data because it's a bit of a hassle to get it all back. Let me know if there are some other things I can try.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.
