Hello, It's my first time using Firefox. Ad-blockers were disabled by Chrome as soon as it was released. There was a transfer of two of my most frequently used accounts, my personal and school accounts. The official department of education email address used by most schools in my area is different from the one used by the majority of schools in my area. The school has switched everything to the school's official email address in recent months, removing the made email. On the about profile page, I clicked the create account button. The process of creating a new account was unsuccessful. There was an error message, but I don't remember it. As far as my school is concerned, it has already been made, I just have to sign in. Signing in required a primary account, according to an error message. I know the email address and reset my password to the default, but it still doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

I am having problems connecting with nearly all websites at times with Firefox. Often, but not always, getting the browser to reload will complete the connection. Especially problematic are ads that appear from Google search; the links almost never will connect! This is whether I run NordVPN or not.

Using the Chrome browser exhibits none of these problems....but I'm a Firefox guy for many years now.

This all started when I upgraded the motherboard/cpu last year to an ASUS Prime Z590 and i7 cpu. The onboard Intel LAN has latest driver. All other drivers are current.

The other two pc's on my home network have no problems with Firefox at all.

This has been going on too long, and frankly I'm stumped. This happened right out of the box after installing the new mobo, no add ins or themes, just plain jane Firefox.

I'm currently running two add ins, an App to disable WebRTC, and the Dark Reader. Disabling these makes no difference in connectivity problems. Help much appreciated.

Hi,

Since about 2 weeks ago everytime I run Firefox a process with the name 'Hello World' runs as well.

The text in the command line window reads: "This process runs at the full privileges of the user and has access to the entire public desktop API surface

Press any key to exit ... 15:16:48.6322622 (a)ThreadProc Start!! Connection established - waiting for requests"

Does anyone know what this is? I tried searching the net, but I could not find anything useful

I have tried a clean reinstall of Ffox and after running it for the first time, without signing in or installing any add-ons, the same process opened with it.

Thanks,

Mitch.

My tabs are constantly crashing. I'm on the newest version and have had no changes when the tabs started crashing. No solutions has worked currently, got a few hours left before I abandon Firefox, my browser for the last decade, and switch over to Chrome, as this is nearly unusable...

I must've accidentally pressed a button last night while I was watching a YouTube video on my desktop, as now the right and bottom edges are cut off when the video is in standard mode. Refreshing hasn't fixed the issue, neither has restarting or shutting down my laptop, as it was turned off for 12+ hours and I still had the issue when using YouTube today. It's even an issue in incognito mode, but not an issue if I use a completely different browser. I can't find anything else that has been affected by whatever button I must have pushed. Laptop is a Dell G15, if that's relevant. Would love any tips to fix this.

I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!

When I first launch Firefox I see it open briefly (a couple of seconds) and then it immediately closes/crashes. When I launch it again it works fine? This has been happening for a few days, maybe since update Version 107.0 64-bit.
