Wwhen I try to type in the field in the middle of my home page (Chrome in Firefox) why does it instantly transfer mt typing to the address bar. Also, why does the browser name appear in the address bar when I start to type? I know what browser I'm using. It's all very, very annoying. How can I stop all this stuff happening?

Hi I have a problem where some malware - opicle.go2cloud.org, has been installed on my Windows 10 PC. When you click on a link, the malware "intercepts" the website and in most instances returns a "404 Not Found error". I did think the problem may be with Windows, but I used Edge as a browser and it worked OK....indicating the problem is with Firefox.

I've checked enabled extensions and plugins and can't find anything. I've also looked online for help but no joy. Any help here is appreciated Thanks

What's the current instruction for deleting IRLs from the address bar pull down menu? This is not about the history, per se, of having been to any location. All I would like to do is delete several extraneous IRLs that are in the pull down menu which I don't need or rarely use, at least from that location.

Thanks.

This morning on my laptop, FF refused to open any websites - literally nothing happened when using bookmarks or the address bar. Settings" doesn't open either. FF worked fine yesterday and other browsers work normally.

I tried it in troubleshoot mode which made no difference and then updated to 9.3.0, which didn't help either. I made a Macrium system backup file and then I did a Macrium system restore to a fortnight ago when FF was working, but the problem was still there.

So i 'restored back' and reluctantly did a reset of firefox. Now i seem to have lost all my bookmarks and passwords (although i can't properly check as settings still won't open) and FF still doesn't work, with exactly the same symptoms.

And I have a folder called Old Firefox Data on my desktop

I am completely stuck, please help!

There is no messages or something, it just hangs (all tabs and Firefox open windows). There is no report bug options in Firefox, I cleared my cookies and data (the same), it's stops responding on clicking top right green button (log in) on https://www.privat24.ua/ or https://next.privat24.ua/ when window asking for phone number appears. Tried troubleshoot mode and disabling add-ons (I have only 3) - result is the same.

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.

My problem,using Mint20.2-MATE, with FireFox92, is that FF92 shuts down whenever I minimize FF-i.e., totally down-does NOT appear in taskbar. I know I had the same problem years ago, and it was a simple fix. However, going through the "Help" sections in FF this time was no help. thank you for any suggestions.
