Hello!

When I add a bookmark, I often find myself in the situation that I would like to adjust the URL. Alas, this cannot be done in the pop-up dialog that appears when clicking on the star button in the address bar.

Then again, it's quite tedious to find that bookmark in the bookmarks library to edit the URL there.

Am I missing something here or is this a missing feature?

I tried to visit a website on a private network.

Firefox threw up a security warning about how the web page uses TLSv1.0.

I clicked on the "Enable TLS v1.0" button because I wanted to temporarily view the web page, so that I can look at the TLS certificate to debug an unrelated issue about the cert chain on this site.

Now I want to go back to the default settings, where Firefox blocks TLSv1.0.

How do I do that?

In about:config I looked at security.tls.version.min but it's still on the original value of 3. Yet Firefox is still letting me view that particular page over TLSv1.0 without the security warning.

How Can I Get My Blank Firefox Address Bar Back?

Why does my Firefox address bar have "http://search.anysearchmanager.com/?_pg=C22B9764-34B6-556E-8545-EBAFFD03F12D&affid=A1I70_set_bfr_H&type=h" in it when I open… (read more)

Why does my Firefox address bar have "http://search.anysearchmanager.com/?_pg=C22B9764-34B6-556E-8545-EBAFFD03F12D&affid=A1I70_set_bfr_H&type=h" in it when I open Firefox? It's annoying to have to delete all of that before I can enter the URL I want. How can I get the automatically blank address bar I had before? I use Firefox on a desktop Mac. (Firefox tells me there are thousands of results for this question, but I can't find any of them.) Thanks.

Is this a Firefox 9.01 problem or a problem of the website? I've never had a problem using Firefox on this site. Thank you.

The bookmarks window opens in fullscreen--FULLSCREEN--and eliminates every option to do anything other than look at bookmarks. It does not minimize, it's just in that way. The only way to get out of that nonsensical window is command+W. Why would Mozilla choose to display bookmarks in such a stupid, obnoxious way?

I have been getting Pop Up Emails from a site that says it's conducting surveys or offering discounts to click on and proceed to another site. It usually says it's conducting the survey for a known company like Quest, or often uses the name of the company site I'm trying to go to. I have tried restricting cookies, pop up's , etc. but can't seem to get rid of this annoying site. I even had it come up 3 times while trying to navigate the Firefox site. Ex.address .... http://spinandwin.com-eso.pw/us/initial_p.php?t=rp

How do I stop or block this site? Thanks, CCS

On OS X's Dock I can right click on Firefox's Icon and get 2 options: "new Window" and "New Private Window".

On Firefox Quantum, I get these options normally when I first open the application, but after having it open for some time, these options just disappear.

I work with multiple desktops and move the Firefox windows around if that helps.

Attaching two screenshots of before/after.

I originally posted "web site viewable" and marked it as solved because I though it was a DNS issue.

That was wrong. The problem is with Firefox. The web site "http://www.flightofthephantom.com/what-is-an-imu" cannot be accessed when using a specific DNS FreeDNS. It however works when I use my ISP's DNS or Google or Quad9.

I know this is a problem with firefox because 1. Safari on the same workstation works for all DNS's 2. I created a new user account on the same machine and Firefox works in that new account for all DNS's

I have another Mac OS el capitain workstation which has the exact same problem. To correct the problem I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

I still have Firefox on the original machine with this problem and I would like to know what is the corruption.

I have performed the following to correct the issue but was unsuccessful.

1. Refresh Firefox 2. Cleared Cached ,history and cookies 3. I have reinstalled firefox

What components remain after the above that would prevent operation of a specific web site (I believe there are other sites) via a specific DNS?
