So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

My question is: When you open a new tab in your browser there is something call web search. Is it possible that everything that I input in there can be shown in that little box below the Firefox logo. Instead of getting display on top of the website box.

In Settings I've set new tabs to open as a blank page. I would have thought this would also apply to New Windows but when I open a new window it goes to my set Home Page. Is this right?

There are 2 ways to copy-paste in Linux. The traditional ctrl+c/ctrl+v, which copies the selection to clipboard. There is another way that automatically copies the selected text to X primary register (without pressing any other buttons).

The second mode (copying to X primary), no longer works for me. How can I fix it? (The feature works on other GTK apps)

I recently moved from the US to the UK. I now have an amazon.co.uk account and every time I type ama... I instinctively hit ENTER and I'm on the amazon.com site and buying stuff I have to ship across the ocean.

I tried the trick of hitting SHIFT-DEL for the amazon.com listing in search results but no matter how many times I've removed it (and it does disappear) it still suggests amazon.com

This happen for other sites as well that I have switched accounts.

Is there any way to solve this?

I know how to create shortcuts, but what I am trying to do is create shortcuts on my Firefox home page. With Chrome I think I click on Add Shortcut, type in a name and below it the web URL. Takes a few seconds. So many of the results I get for Firefox are years old, very old versions of Firefox. My Firefox is the latest version. It can't be this difficult. Two clicks and a little typing and Chrome adds one.

A few minutes ago I had this error, I searched all over the internet but nobody gave a concrete solution.

I tried everything: clear cookies, reset firefox, etc.

The only person who gave a solution was to restore windows in a clean installation.

It turns out that for a rare reason my computer woke up with the time misconfigured, I configured it and tried to access some files that I had in google drive, but it showed that error and it had been trying to solve it for 2 hours. Well, it turns out that I had set the time wrong and instead of putting "AM" I put "PM" that is to say, it was 12 hours apart.

I configured everything again and with the correct time and that solved the problem, I hope someone will use this information.

Possibly a question that has been asked before or could be extracted from the shortcuts page, but wording of the problem probably varies quite a bit.

In the address bar, when I want to go in one click to the first result that is not a search suggestion, is there a way to accomplish that (instead of arrow down for x amount of times)? A subpar alternative would then be to disable search suggestions of course.
