How the flipping f can I disable this (see attached image). I was able to do this previously with setting "browser.urlbar.update2 = false" Now it doesn't work anymore.

I use keyword for search engines extensively and this is very very annoying!

How do I make it go away.

I use Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Mac os x Catalina 10.15.6

Thanks

I am working in an online class and we are asked to record videos in an online platform for school. When I go to hit the play button on anyone's video I get an error message. This does not happen in other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox. Is there a privacy or cookie setting that could be causing this to happen?

I mistakenly deleted my firefox browser, I am running Mac OS 10.7.5 with a SSD on a Mac Pro desktop. I have been unable to download a new firefox browser because of the OS and hardware limitations. I sorely miss firefox. Is there any way to get an older version of firefox which will run on my computer? adnicastri@aol.com

The latest version 84.0.1 for Mac now opens a new print menu, which is terrible. How do I force it to go away and permanently default to "print using the system dialog", which "Firefox help" never heard of. I can't find any way to get rid of it. It is a hateful change to Firefox, I hate it and my sister is in tears. She hates computers anyway. Seniors can't handle these dramatic changes.

This page loads properly when using Safari Version 14.0.3

There is a lot to love about Firefox. However, it has perhaps THE worse history searching tools of any browser. You cannot search by date, just "Last 7 Days" or whole months. Even then you cannot see on which date the search was performed: stupid and inexcusable.

Hello,

i'm having a problem navigating inside some of the websites on Firefox for Mac. Either the page is grey, and I can't navigate the page or I can't scroll down the page. It's not doing it on evry websites but it's become really annoying.

I tried to go into Preferences and in the privacy to see if there was somthing there, but the privacy setting is set to standard and I don't see anything there that can prevent what's happening.

Thank you for your help in this matter. Kssaw

Same favicons for different web services running on one host

If there are several applications with their own web interface (web server on different ports) on a host (same IP address), the same favicon is always displayed in the bookmarks for all applications.

Example: On one computer there are several applications with their own web interfaces such as home automation, media server, network management, etc. The applications are addressed via different ports (https://mydomain.com:xxx). The correct associated favicons are always displayed in the corresponding browser tabs.

But when bookmarks are created for these applications, they all get the same favicon.

I can't see any regularity which favicon is chosen. At first I thought it was always the favicon of the application running on port 80. However, I have also managed other favicons depending on the order in which I created the bookmarks. But in the end all bookmarks always have the same favicon, because the favicons also change later after the bookmark originally had the right favicon :-(
