Some days ago I noticed a change in the outfit of the firefox basic website: It concerns the upper menue-line. There is still in the right upper corner the `x ´ , the sign for closing the page.( note the red flash in my picture!) But I am missing the `-´ and the square sign, with which I can hide and open a hidden page. So I don´t know, how to switch between several pages, i.e., I can´t make dissappear this page, in order to use the translation page.

Autocomplete URL has stopped working

Firefox 86.0 (64-bit) on macOS

When I start to type the URL for an address I use often, for example bar for barnesandnoble.com, I always get barefootyoga.com as a suggestion. I've never visited this website. It's not in my history. I have no idea what it's popping up when typing bar used to autofill barnesandnoble.

When barefootyoga pops up in the URL as a suggestion, I click SHIFT + DELETE, but barefootyoga appears the next time I type bar. (This is happening for almost all other websites where autocomplete used to work correctly--this is just one example.)

I've cleared all history for all time and restarted browser. Same result. After relaunch, I fully typed barnesandnoble.com and visited the website to get it back in history. I opened a new tab, typed bar, and barefootyoga began to autocomplete

In Preferences, I get the same unwanted result with these settings: Search > Search Suggestions > Disable/renable "Provide search suggestions" Privacy & Security > Address Bar > All check boxes selected except for search engine In about:config, I scanned options for browser.urlbar, but nothing looks like it would resolve this issue

I feel as if I am missing something obvious.

I was typing a Youtube comment when, all of a sudden hitting "Spacebar" pauses the video, typing Letter "M" mutes the video. "F" FullScreen "I" Miniplayer. It also applies while searching a video. I tried it on other browser. I had no issues at all. So I came if this is an issue on Mozilla Browser, or in my end.

Firefox (Windows) "save to.."-window always as full screen, can't be resized

Hey there,

whenever I save files (be it PDFs or images) from Firefox to my hard drive, the pop up window where I select the location where to save the file is displayed as full screen. While I can still use the window to save the file, it always covers the source in the background, from which I often want to copy information into the file's name. So I have to cancel the process, copy the information, then save the file.

In the past the "save to.."-window was resizeable, you could easily drag its right lower corner. But somehow that function isn't working anymore..? Even though the corner is marked as resizable by the typical triangle of grey dots, clicking and dragging it doesn't do anything.

Even when the Firefox browser window only takes up half the space of my monitor besides another programme's window, the "save to"-window covers the whole view height und and width.

How can I get the window to be smaller?

Thanks in advance! English isn't my first language, so please excuse any weird wording.

Lately I've noticed that I cannot log on to the Xfinity.com website. The home page displays and the login screen allows entry of login ID, but then the screen blacks out and shows only 3 dots that move slightly to show something is happening. Eventually, the site times out and goes back to the login screen.

This happens on my laptop. It is running Firefox version 86 under Ubuntu Linux. I have tried this on another computer running Windows 10 and get the same result, unless I use Microsoft's browser. Firefox loads the Xfinity site correctly on my Android phone, version 86.1.1

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Bill
