If I wanted to use the navbar for search I'd set it up that way. I don't, and I'm getting really sick of doing this...

    type in searchBar "about:config"
   Accept warning
   Search "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" and change it to false (Do this Only if you want to disable suggesions)
   Search "keyword.enabled" and change it to false
   Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" and change it to false 

every time I open Firefox or a new tab in Firefox.

I'd like the option of not having it search in the navbar, ever. I search using Google. I like Google. I've been a big fan and supporter of Firefox for years, but this constantly having to deal with the search in the navbar thing, which I don't want it to do, is really turning me off of Firefox. I hate the Microsoft junk, Explorer and Edge, and I don't like Chrome either, but I'm getting really sick of Firefox trying to shove this Search via the navbar thing down my throat.

How do I disable navbar search permanently, or am I just stuck with redoing it every time I open Firefox or a new tab, at least until I get completely fed up and decide to give another browser a try at replacing Firefox?

I have made multiple attempts to install the "scraper.ai" extension in Firefox without success. At one point, it appears in the list of extensions, but I haven't been able to register with the author/company, which is apparently a prerequisite for using it. I click on the "Register" link in the dialog, enter my username and password, and click "Go". Every time I try this, I get the error message, "Unable to connect". The same message appears whenever a "scraper.ai" link is activated, whether it be for a document, or even the company website. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, I had to reset my password, but couldn't find my recovery key at the moment. I thought I would keep at least some of my informations, but I lost everything, from bookmarks to passwords.

Of course, afterward, I did stumble upon the said memory key. I didn't create a new one, how could I reuse my recovery key ? When I try to reset my password again, the option is no more there.

Firefox on Windows 11 now runs at 100% and a stack of ram. Obviously this slows down my PC and this is only on the home page with nothing to look at. This makes it unuseable. Tried help pages - no use at all. Why am I asking an unknown instead of Mozilla? To big for their boots?

This link in Firefox (for example) displays no article text or pictures. However the same link on Chrome displays the complete article and pictures. https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2022/06/20/bears-ears-national-monument-tribes/

Sometimes the article comes up in Firefox, but then reverts after awhile to no text and pictures. If I refresh the page, the text and pictures return for awhile. Sometimes though the text pictures are not displayed until I refresh several times. This seems to happen only on the Washington Post. I would think it's the post, but Chrome displays the pages without any problems. This problem doesn't seem to happen on WASH PO main page, just articles off of main page. Can anyone help?

Recently got a new computer. Log in to gmail and after about 5 to 10 minutes of being in gmail I get an error message saying the connection failed and it must reconnect. Its not a internet issue. I can still go other places in a browser or have access to anything on the network. It is only Gmail. This didn't happen before on my old computer. I have reinstalled Firefox, gutted and reinstalled Firefox, tried it with a new profile. Tried it with the profile from my old computer. I cannot get it to stop. I found a setting online for HTTP time out for Firefox. I did increase that time out to 10 minutes but that did not seem to resolve the issue. It isn't a network connectivity issue from what I can tell as I don't lose internet or have any issue access other resources both locally or on the internet.

Recently got a new computer with Windows 11, and now whenever I try to play a Youtube video or videos on other sites, Firefox as a whole slows down. There is a delay when starting the video, and at times Firefox stops responding if I try to switch to another tab when this is happening. (Not always, but sometimes).

The delay can be anywhere from 5 to 45 seconds or so, and repeats whenever I pause and unpause a video, or even rewind slightly. This doesn't seem to be buffering, and videos seem to work just fine on Edge. Any idea what could be causing this issue?
