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.

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.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.

I just updated to Firefox v.89.0. When I open up a new tab, I get my Bing search engine with a text box in the middle of the page. When I start typing in this text box, my typing automatically goes instead into the address text box. Prior to this version of Firefox, my typing stayed the in Bing (or Google, etc.) search text box. I've tried to look up solutions which sent me to About:config keyword.enabled and other settings but nothing I've tried fixes this problem. I want my search in the larger (Bing) search text box, not in the address (urlbar) text box which is much smaller text. As I said, prior to this version of FIrefox, my typing stayed in the search text box and didn't automatically get moved into the address text box. Please advise.

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

When I went to version 89.0 today, the default theme was changed so that the title bar turned white when I had it set to light blue and if I had two or more firefox windos up the non active ones were white as well when they used to be gray. While I want a light theme, the present light theme is so white that it hurts my eyes. You had a decent default before, but now it is terrible. Change it back! Look at the terrible image below that shows an active and a non active window.

Hi,

I am currently running FF 89 (64bit). I noticed just after that update the bookmarks had changed. I have a lot of folders and had a Chrome.sss file to change the empty outline to the more traditional yellow icon. I know there were other things in that sss file that I had added to adjust the basic FF displays. However, I have searched my computer and cannot find the Chrome.sss file.

Is there any way to find this file instead of having to regenerate it and relearn the changes I had made?

Why does FF not leave the Chrome folder and sss file instead of seemingly delete them?

I also do not like the black background and white text that pops up when I right click a bookmark. That combination is very hard on my eyes. Is there an easy way to get black type on a white background or maybe a light grey background?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.

Firefox just up-dated itself to latest version after 88.01. And now, while the google search box appears in the centre of my homepage, like it has always done, as soon as I start typing into it, the search defaults to that horrible Chrome-like search bar at the top of the screen. How do Istop this? Or can I revert to my much loved earlier?

Since yesterday June 10, 2021, when I click on my bookmark for the New York Times, it loads the page from Feb 26, 2020. I have tried removing all cookies, restarting, rebooting, but nothing works. With Chrome I get the correct first page, but not with Firefox.

Is this happening to anyone else?

I am attaching a screen shot. It says the correct date at the top, but all the articles are from Feb 2020

I have an older laptop and got a new one. I have installed Firefox 89.0 on both machines. I want to migrate all of the Firefox data from the old one to the new one. I have copied the Profile from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles to a thumb drive. I believe this to be all that I need to move to the new machine. The problem is that I don't know where to put it on the new machine.

I understand that Firefox must be closed when I modify the new machine. I also discovered that there is a Profile.ini file that has a pointer to the filename that Firefox will use when it is opened. Do I have to modify this file as well?

Perhaps I am on the wrong track and need to be redirected. If so, please point me to an article or wiki that will put me on the right one.

Firefox opens in a small box at the top left of the computer screen about 1/9 the size of the viewing area. I have to click on the "maximize" icon (the square box(es)twice to get a normal viewing screen. Note: I am not referring to "full screen." This began after the last Firefox update. I have cleared the cache, cookies, data, etc. and startup cache and restarted Firefox and the computer. I haven't "Refreshed" Firefox, yet, because I don't want to go through the hassle of putting everything back together if it isn't going to work. How do I get Firefox to open in a "maximized" window?
