Is there a way to use "search engine shortcut" without query just to go to a website of the appropriate search-engine?

So as, for example, after writing "g" (or "g"+space) in the search bar and pressing Enter, firefox opened the url "https://www.google.com/search?q=" (or something like that).

It used to work this way in older versions of Firefox (before 83), but since then firefox just searches "g" with the default search engine. Or it "eats" the shortcut (after pressing space) and turns it into a "blue/gray search engine label" but it does not allow me to go to the search engine web without writing some query that I need to remove afterwards.

I was using this feature as a sort of bookmark shortcuts to "custom" search engine websites (I'm using tens of them for debugging purposes and often need to fill in some additional parameters to the "text" query - often even to an "empty query").

The closest I got googling was probably "browser.urlbar.update2.emptySearchBehavior" - but it either does not work already, does not do what I'm expecting or I did not come up with the correct value for it.

I was editing the bookmarks on PC in hope that the change will reflect on my iPhone with the sync on, but contrary to what I hoped, the sync worked the other way around, any change I made on PC will be reverted in a few minutes, which seems that it has been synced by the bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get it right? I would like to have the ability to make changes on either device and reflect on the other device.

There has been a legitimate issue with the bookmarks since the 92.0 update. This applies only to Windows 7 users. The list is very lazy and will actually freeze up. It takes forever to highlight the bookmark you want and the favicons are delayed in populating. Refreshing Firefox doesn't work. Renaming favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite, and those with the -shm and -wal extensions, if existing, doesn't work either. I don't need help from contributors. The following message is to the developers &/or whoever bastardized Firefox since the 92.0 update...


As I stated, this is a Windows 7 issue. The developers should fix this problem for us Windows 7 users. It was them who caused this issue since the 92.0 update. Everything worked perfect until then. Here’s a bright idea for the developers. How about getting this matter fixed, so that us Windows 7 users can have the same functionality as everyone else. Stop screwing around with a million and one updates every year. You people are doing more harm than good. The people running Chrome are a hell of a lot more intelligent. No issues whatsoever with Windows 7! Try that on for size.

Since the last two updates of 92.0 and 92.01, there is a major lag issue with my bookmark list. When you hover the cursor over a particular folder or link, it takes forever for it to be highlighted. In addition, the favicon associated with any particular link takes forever to populate. The bookmarks worked perfect prior to version 92.0. Being that I am a WIN 7 user, it would appear that whatever the developers did beginning with 92.0, had great affect to WIN 7 users, which implies that maybe other WIN 7 users may also be having the identical issues with their bookmarks. The developers should fix this issue ASAP in the next update. There is no excuse for this issue to be occurring.

I can't for the life of me explain why enlarging these fonts is not easily done. The font is tiny! Not everyone is 28, know what I mean? I've reviewed what's been written on this before in support, but I see nothing very useful. Surely, I can't be the only person who needs to enlarge these fonts. Please help!

Hi I have a new MacBook Air M1 chip computer. I exported all of my bookmarks on my old Macbook Pro to an HTML file and then transferred the HTML into my new computer. I researched and followed the instructions for importing the HTML. That went fine - to a point. Now all of my old bookmarks appear as one big group in the OTHER BOOKMARKS category. When I open BOOKMARKS>MANAGE BOOKMARKS they don't even appear. When I open BOOKMARKS and scroll down to OTHER BOOKMARKS they are all there. Here's the problem - in my old computer they were organized into folders but now they are not. Since they don't even appear in the manager I can't even begin to follow the instructions for organizing them. Also, I now have duplicate folders for all of the following : Other Bookmarks / Mozilla Firefox / Recent Tags / Bookmarks Toolbar. AND, Again, these duplicates do not appear when I open the Manager so I can't begin to delete any of them. Please help Daniel

Hello, I re-installed firefox and copied the backups from the old profile to the new profile. However, it is not complete - how do I find the bookmarks that were in the "other bookmarks folder" which is now empty and how do I find the bookmarks that were in my toolbar itself? Thank you.
