When I type anything into the Location Bar or search that is not a website address, Google search would provide me with search results. Now Bing has taken over as the default search engine and I want Google back. How do I specify Google as the default search engine for Location Bar searches? (I have already removed Bing from the Search Bar list.)

Good day! We connected two-factor authentication to the account and ran into a problem. I am installed the application "google authentificator", but when entering the code from this application it gives the error "Invalid two-step authentication code". We tried to enter more than 50 times with different codes (https://prnt.sc/152hs5u). The time on the PC and on the mobile device are identical. What could be the problem? Waiting for your answer

Good morning. My Firefox appears to have updated overnight and now my menu bar is a light grey colour instead of it's original black. I want to reset the menu bar colour to black because I now have no contrast between it and my tabs. I have searched the help articles but none of them tells me how to do this. I am directed down the path: settings> extensions and themes> manage your themes.

Unfortunately I can see no way to 'manage' this theme. I would mention that I am a native English speaker but any so called 'discussion' of this issue uses what I call 'geek-speak' which is unintelligible to a non IT professional.

I would be most grateful for someone to explain to me in simple terms (ie keystroke by keystroke) how to re-set my menu bar colour to black, whilst noting that the text for (file, edit,view etc) needs to then be white rather than the pale grey which it has become.

As an after thought, does anyone know which developer it is that thinks it a good idea to mess with my original view settings during an update. It is NOT helpful and, quite frankly, really annoying.

Many thanks in advance to you wizards out there Chris

I recently updated Mozilla to v 80.0 (64 bit) I have Mozilla set so that it does not search from the address bar, and I use the optional search bar.

When I create a new tab the default page contains a google search box, as per the attached screen shot. But if I type in that search box, the search term appears in the address bar, and then Mozilla tells me the address doesn't look right.

Why is the search term automatically entered in the address bar? Since I have the seaparate search bar my search term should appear there.

BTW I hate searching from the address bar. If I want to search I type it in the search box, or in the search box in new tab. Separating the search and address bars is one of my favorite features of Mozilla vs the other browsers.

I think that such a project would have multiple purposes: First off, you would take fewer things from Gecko, making for a more compact code base (I mean, does everyone want Video-in-Video and Pocket? Couldn't you integrate the most popular add-ons and remove add-on support? I like 'em, but don't they add bloat?). That could make the entry into development easier. Second off, it'd show people that Blink isn't the only engine you can base a browser off of. And if the code base is truly the same (includes Quantum), and more of a subset, it's probably easier to maintain and get security updates to than, for instance, Pale Moon. As fork developers are only able to backport security patches when Mozilla releases them, that problem would be greatly reduced if the project was made within Mozilla. Third off, having a lightweight browser might enable more people to use Mozilla products, as they could run the browser on weaker hardware. If the developers are able to focus on making that browser lightweight, it wouldn't be crucial for Firefox Standard to run on everything, and you'd still be able to reach more people.

My homepage now has two toolbars at the top of the page and I can't remove the second - it says Guardian news etc. etc. The layout of bookmarks has also changed - no colour on the folders (not a huge problem) but the spacing between entries is larger which makes it hard to access the entire list. Can anyone help please?

vimeo is blocked since i got the latest firefox update. it says

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to vimeo.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

vimeo.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

how can this be fixed

Fedora 33 shipped with firefox-81. Just recently the first firefox update to fedora 33 landed. That update is firefox-89.

It is dead, no, excuse me, it's DEAD and DEAD slow. Youtube and streaming video sites stutter so badly that I'm lucky to get 2-3 frames per minute even if the audio holds up. firefox-89 is also slow on other fronts, no, excuse me, it's DEAD slow on all fronts.

I have a large number of windows and tabs and cutting that number by 25 to 30% has no noticable effect.

After searching for solutions, the top suggestion was to disable "proton", but no that had only a tiny effect.

What are the mozilla people thinking? My guess is that they are not thinking.

Another worthy question is, how did this awful piece of software get distributed by the fedora project.

Look, I've been using mostly firefox since it's beginning, but come on, this is ridiculous.

I downgraded to firefox-81 but now some of my streaming services have stopped working because of an unsupported browser. Additionally, gmail does not work after the downgrade.

I know I'm not a loner in this and I know that firefox-89 is not the most recent version to disappoint in a major way. I predict that firefox will be history within a year unless Mozilla pulls it's act together.

Ever since upgrading to FF89, some websites don't increase the font size when I zoom in using ctrl+mouse wheel. The default seems like 9px, really hard to read.

Facebook is a culprit. Also OctoPi, a local service. Facebook, at least, uses rem units. Doesn't react to zooming in.

When trying to access the Google Developer Profile webpage on Firefox desktop, I encounter many errors. I can't sign in a lot of the times, sometimes I kind of get in but it says my profile isn't finished even though it is. I ended up creating it with MS Edge and accessing it that way after I had done a couple of the Kotlin training exercises to make sure my progress was getting saved. Many other times I get a 404 message; the errors I get vary a bit.

I have even tried starting Firefox in safe mode just to disable all extensions and add-ons, still with no luck.

It is only with Firefox Desktop that I am having this issue. When I use my Android device and bring it up on Firefox mobile, I don't have any of these issues. I see my profile and badges just fine.
