Hi,

Firefox 84.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux Mint 18.3

I have the 'Use the address bar for search and navigation' option selected in settings but when I enter a search all I get is 'Hmm. That address doesn’t look right. Please check that the URL is correct and try again.'

Any ideas please?

Been using Firefox for years, all of a sudden 2 sites no longer works, everyone says it is Firefox fault, and all say to switch browsers. The sites do work on Chrome, but i do not want to switch. PLEASE HELP, I am by no means a computer person, but do need. Nothing new has been installed, and to my knowledge nothing has been changed, other than probable updated. The sites worked fine, then they did not work at all. This all started about 30 days ago, maybe 45

I Wonder Where The Fonts Records Are Stored

I've been using new fonts to customize my firefox, but I found that the fonts I installed won't show up in the dropdown menu in preferences, I have to create a new profile to let the new ones do.

I don't want to change my profiles from time to time, so I turned to userContent.css, but I found it either cannot cover enough contents, or cover too much, causing some icons to break.

So the only way to change font for me is to find a way to let the newly installed fonts to show up properly in my current profile, but no matter I restart my browser or my computer they don't. The fonts I have must be read at the time I create a profile, and I guess the list is stored in either somewhere in my profile or under the firefox program folder.

I made every effort to search for it but failed, all I know now is it's not in any text file under profile folder, I wonder if anyone can help me with locating the list of fonts. My firefox version is 84.0.2 on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7.

Firefox crashing frequently and unexpectedly. I can't discern any pattern to when it happens. I don't know what's triggering it.

I've tried refreshing it, reinstalling it, running under a newly created profile, running under safe mode. The crashing continues despite all of these things.

I've had all settings in about:preferences#privacy turned off for years, but a new firewall is asking me to allow default-browser-agent.exe to send data.

I'd have thought the program should stop running altogether when all checkmarks in "Firefox Data Collection and Use" are turned off.

Can I view what data is being sent?
