The so-called great FireFox has made unwanted changes to my iPad, after doing work on my iMac. I hope I do not have to format my MAC products, to get back, my normals. My normals are better than FireFox. Thank you for your time and knowledge. Robert Seymour

I have my options set to not use the address bar to search with, because that would be stupid and uselessly redundant with a search box right next to the address bar, but since updating last night it's broken and keeps trying to search from the address bar even though it's specifically set not to.

I would like to see the creation date of any bookmark made when looking at bookmarks. This would to me make organizing bookmarks much more efficient. I would like Firefox to do this for me automatically. Now I have to do this manually, which is a bit cumbersome.

One website is not behaving properly. It works on Chrome.

Here is the URL: https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html?year=1920

I fill in the form from pull-down menus:

    State: Illinois
    County: Chicago Cook
    City or Town: Chicago
    Street: Sawyer N.

I see under "1920 ED numbers corresponding to your location ": "...please stand by". I see above that "Cross or back street on same city block ", but there is no pull-down menu there.

What I see in Chrome is a long list of census Enumeration District hyperlinks and a pull-down menu - "Cross or back street on same city block".

How do I determine why this page is not working in Firefox. I am running FF 65.0 in Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, and I ALWAYS run in FF safe-mode.

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

In Chrome, I can click the star icon to bookmark a page, and it automatically saves to the last folder that a bookmark was saved to. Due to bugs I have been forced to use Firefox instead of Chrome. I would like to know if there's a plugin or setting I can tweak to allow me to do 1 click bookmarking to the last folder bookmarked to.

I don't think my computers RAM will support Firefox enough to run it properly. I do have a Seagate 1 teribyte back up plus portable drive I can attach. If I plug it in can I download Firefox and expect it to run properly with this added drive? Also, should I down load the Firefox to this drive exclusively so only firefox runs on it so it doeswn't have any effect on my hard drive that is in my computer.

I have a persistent ad banner which appears only on Amazon and Ebay sites, and only in Firefox. It began just a few weeks ago, and for the first few days it was an ad for Ebates, but now it changed to advertise some epsystore.com I attached a screenshot of it. There is no plugin, no add-on which I did not install. I removed and reinstalled Firefox but it did not help. Has anyone seen this? Is there a way to get rid of this thing?

Pocket was OK for a while, but about a week or so ago it started taking the URL whenever I clicked on Bookmarks in the Firefox menu (on a Mac running 10.12.6). I keep my bookmarks organized in a folder structure, so this makes me go back to the Bookmarks menu and choose Edit This Bookmark. I changed the value given in the instructions to disable it to FALSE as instructed, and restarted Firefox just in case. BUT it still acts the same way, grabbing the Bookmarks. I don't WANT Pocket. If anyone can tell me how to get it to stop working I would really appreciate it. Thank you for any help.

I'm looking for some features that the present version (54.0 (32 bit)) I am using doesn't have, such as "simplify printing".
