All of a sudden when I press F6, it starts a Google search (see image) instead of just focusing the address bar. This is rather annoying because I use F6 all the time to go to a different page (e.g. type "mail" and then follow the autocomplete to mail.google.com) and that doesn't work if it wants search google for mail instead.

How do I revert this to its normal behaviour?

Try this test first. Go to About:Config, write TLS , change the setting to max (4) . Then attempt to download the firefox installer. The website won't load, as the webmasters did not enable TLS 1.3 , which in 2023 is kind of a shame. The browser cannot update itself either automatically if only TLS 1.3 is allowed, and TLS1.2 is disabled.

The can be an easy fix. I wonder why Mozilla did not solve this already years back. I also wonder why fans, and security researchers did not scream about it in the past..

For the download.mozilla.org the cipher suite Key Exchange is P256, while the Signature is RSA-PKCS1-SHA512, for Transport Layer Security 1.2

I'm sure Mozilla can do better then this, so kindly review these items, and update your website with stronger / modern encryption standards. Decommission the legacy ones please. While you are at it, please also enable HSTS. ;) Cheers!

Firefox somehow took 4-11 second to actually connect to new address, even the sites I regularly visits. after I'm updating to Windows 11.

So I I've been holding out upgrading to W11 for some time now, but have to upgrade after being tipped by a friend about ONE convenient feature for multitasking, split apps view and combining it into one tab. So far so good, didn't experience any issue. One complain I have is the gigantic cut, copy, open..etc Tab at the top of the new file explorer. But, again, nothing out of the ordinary.

But when I opened Firefox for the first time after upgrading I noticed a painful delay before actually loading the new pages. At first I thought it was only because I just recently updated the OS, so I leave for few hours and keep working my docs. After going back to browse I still have the same issue. This time I notably irritated because of browsing my regularly checked websites have so much delay now compared to before I upgrade to W11.

Here's the list of thing I tried to fix this issue.

   Clearing caches
   Disabling add ons
   Disable enhanced protection
   Refresh Firefox program
   Updating my chipset driver 
   updating my gfx driver
   Reseting my network.

Nothing I tried above worked.

Again the issue is not internet speed. When I downloaded the AMD drivers, it was 14MBps, quite fast.

Then I open the "task manager" and tick the "always on top" option. I noticed that Firefox is still idling even after I clicked links in my homepage. Firefox only uses 2% of CPU usage. It stays that way for 4-11 seconds (depending on the websites I tested) before eventually ramps up the CPU usage to the percentage I expected to opens a new website.

Anyone knows the answer? Please I'm getting desperate here. I don't want to daily drive chromium forks and would like to keep using Firefox.

The latest update added persistent "More Tools" and "Extensions" icons on the top right of Firefox. Usually, by clicking "Customize Toolbar" I could remove any annoying icon that I don't want to persistently see, but it would seem that Firefox DISABLED the ability to remove these annoying icons. Please let us continue to customize our own toolbars and allow us to remove unwanted icons.

Recently, my windows crashed and when the PC restarted and I opened mozilla I noticed two thinngs - first all of my extensions were disabled and I didn't have my Firefox theme, and then I noticed that I don't have any of my saved passwords anymore ( I was also disconnected from my mozilla account and had to login ). I noticed that I still had all my extensions installed but they were all disabled. I did however have all my bookmarks. Do you know what could've happened and is there a way I can restore my saved passwords ?

Okay, I went to your HELP article about installing Private Network and tried to follow the instructions, but the button allowing me to down-lode didn't appear, as indicated in the article. Finally, I started a new account, with a free trial and a $2.99/monthly fee for 3x installations. As I already have an account, and I'm only aware of 1x installation on that - the old Windows 10 computer that can't be upgraded to W11. I don't know how to access information about these accounts...to see if I have used more than 1 installation on my first account, for example. Can someone help me with all of this? Thanks.

I run dual monitors with multi-tab Firefox on both--different sets of tabs. How can I--or can I--set my Home Page to all the tabs open on both monitors and have clicking the Home button put me back to those two sets of tabs? I can set Home on one monitor or the other, but there seems to only be one 'Home' slot and it evidently is whichever was more recently set using "set home to current open tabs" (I think that's close to the wording)
