I've disabled this for my google account. So when I search from google.com this behavior doesn't happen. But when I type anything into my address bar on Firefox to search, the first suggestions are from my search history.

I don't want to delete my search history.

I often use my search history to find specific things that I need, but didn't bookmark at the time. I need my search history to be saved. I just don't want to automatically receive suggestions based on it.

Is there any way to turn this off? Even with an extension or something?

About 1 week ago Firefox with Windows 11 stopped displaying YouTube video comments. I've tried other browsers and I can see the comments.

I only have 6 extensions and have disabled all of them and still have the problem. With Firefox in safe mode the problem goes away and I can see the comments. I've cleared the Firefox cache and hardware acceleration is off. I have the standard themes and using the default system theme-auto.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Thank you.

I went to open a new tab today and suddenly the font or scaling on my menu bar got way bigger. It's extremely annoying, and I can't find any way to re-scale it, as all the zoom or font settings seem to affect only web pages, or the scaling of the entire browser window, including content. All the content in a browser window is fine, its ONLY the menu bar. I wonder if I hit a hotkey by accident when trying to open my tab (I used CTRL+T, but it's possible I accidentally hit another key instead or in addition to) but it's driving me up the wall.

I am unable to sign into the 7plus.com.au website.

I have tried creating a new profile in Firefox (firefox.exe -p) but I have the same issues when using the new profile.

When I go to the website, the 'sign in' button does not respond, nor does the 'Register' button. When I click on the 'Connect your TV' button and enter my credentials, I receive an error message:

Failed to sign in. Please try again later (error -1)

I do not have these issues if I use another browser, so this leads me to believe that Firefox may be the issue.

I realize the website developers may also be at fault here, but it seems odd that other browsers work, but Firefox does not.

If anyone can offer any help or advice, I am all ears, thanks.

However, I found that when I deselect "Ask you where to save the files" in the browser's Settings and then click the link, it downloads the file to my Downloads folder.

Gmail endless login loop (but only in Firefox)

Hi

I've been having an issue logging into Gmail using Firefox. I've used both Gmail and Firefox for years and have never had a problem, but I now get stuck in an endless loop on the Gmail login page. I select my account, enter my password, then get sent back to the account selection page.

The problem seems to be relating to me trying to link two Gmail addresses so that mail from one is forwarded to the other. I set up one account this way without any issue, but when I went to do it with a different account, I got an error code. After that, I was logged out of Gmail in Firefox and haven't been able to log back in.

Things I've tried so far:

  • Using a different browser. I can log in without issues in Chrome.
  • Logging in with a different method. Neither my password nor my passkey work.
  • Logging in with a different Gmail account. All of my accounts seem to be stuck in this way.
  • Disabling all my extensions. This doesn't help.
  • Clearing Firefox's cache. No luck here.
  • Restarting Firefox and restarting my PC. Turning it off and on again doesn't fix it.
  • Contacting Google support. They said they think it's a browser issue as I don't have any problems using Chrome.
  • Using Firefox's private browsing mode. This does work and I can log in to Gmail. However, I don't know exactly what the problem is because I've disabled all my extensions and cleared the cache in regular browsing mode and still can't log in that way.

So I have a partial solution (using Firefox's private browsing mode) but it's not a long-term fix. What else can I try? Has anyone else seen this problem before and been able to fix it?

I accidentally pressed a lot of keys on my keyboard and for some reason the default colors of Firefox have changed. I found out that by using Ctrl+Alt+D that I can switch the colors back to normal or to the colors that now appear automatically, but this only works for one tab. If I open a new tab, it shows the weird colors (see images below). I tried looking up specific shortcuts for Firefox considering the shortcut mentioned before (Ctrl+Alt+D) only works on Firefox. But I can't find any shortcut tied to that combination. I'm unsure what to do and how to fix this.

I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to fix this.

But if I download the same PDF using Safari, it opens straightaway - 2nd screen shot.

Is there something I need to adjust in Firefox to allow PDFs to open?

Just updated a friend's computer from Windows 7 to 10. Installed firefox over previous ESR and now there's no way to remove the search bar from the new tab page. On my W10 system, the search bar isn't there, not sure how or why, but on her's there's no option NOT to show it as there used to be.

I found some VERY old (2014) info on this but doesn't seem to be up to date.

PLEASE give us our options back and stop taking them away, sheesh, getting as bad as Microsoft.

Is there a workaround for this to remove the redundant search bar from the new tab page since you can search from the address bar?

Thanks!

Hi,

How do I change the color of the white border and the color of the arrows?

I have menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem { -moz-appearance:none!important; color: white !important; background-color: #1551C0!important; } menupopup { -moz-appearance:none!important; background-color: #1551C0!important; border:none !important; padding:5px 0px 5px 5px!important; }

I have .menu-right { filter: invert(100%) !important; but it only turns the arrows white in some locations but not in the bookmarks menu and not in the right-click menu.

Hi, I can't change the default hover color of buttons in the navigation bar. It either remains totally unaffected or there appears a larger background image of my color overlaid with the smaller default hover image. Hover on the bookmarks toolbar works fine, except for the "Show more bookmarks" chevron, which behaves exactly like a navigation bar button. I tried these:

  1. nav-bar toolbarbutton:hover,
  2. nav-bar toolbarbutton:hover:active,
  3. nav-bar toolbarbutton-icon:hover,
  4. nav-bar .toolbarbutton-icon:hover, #nav-bar.browser-toolbar hbox#nav-bar-customization-target.customization-target toolbarbutton:hover,
  5. nav-bar toolbarbutton[open="true"],
  6. nav-bar toolbarbutton[checked="true"],
  7. nav-bar toolbarbutton[buttonover="true"]

I go to about:memory > Save memory reports - Measure and save and then view the output, a report called memory-report.json.

In this report I see approximately 30 blocks of text, each of which contains approximately 50 to 100 website URLs. Several blocks contain only porn URLs. I have viewed porn, but only in Google Images; I don't visit the websites.

Why is this information being stored by Firefox?

Note: my Firefox is set to Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However, even after closing and opening Firefox, all the information is still in the report.

A sample of two of these blocks of text is attached.
