How do you get rid of all types of auto completion when typing in an address in the address bar?

The search bar setting is set to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", I don't want to use "Add search bar in toolbar", because I don't want to have the extra search field in the top part of the browser, and if I go to customize, and remove it, it just changes the setting back to "Use the address bar for search and navigation".

I've already disabled the default search engine: "Provide search suggestions", and Address Bar: "Browsing history", "Bookmarks", and "Open tabs" options.

I want to be able to type an address in the address bar, without having any kind of auto completion options, but right now when I try to type and address like google for example, it still shows two lines with visit and search options, and it says "search for google with:", then shows icons for a bunch of different search engines.

I used to use firefox but stopped using it a while ago when they made ridiculous changes to it, and I'd like to use it again, but I don't know how to disable the address bar auto completion settings completely. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks.

At Firefox' recommendation, I added an extension/addon called 'single pane extension' where I think the idea was that Firefox could be save better. But since the install Firefox has become unusable. I can only use it in safe mode. Here is a screenshot. Sorry, but I can't figure out how to fix this.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04

I know, this is an ongoing thing. I also understand that there are, possibly, other programs that might interfere with Firefox always Asking to save logins and passwords for websites. I even understand why other password programs might consider Firefox to be a danger to the security of said passwords.

I, however, want Thunderbird to ask to save regardless of what another program or whatever thinks. Given the number of thoughts on this one I suspect that, eventually, you will figure out a way to simply write it in stone no matter what another program thinks.

I notice that there are command line options. As far as I can tell I can't tell Firefox, when starting, to make sure the Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is checked but could such a thing be possible? This would allow me to add a command line when I start firefox on startup. How about "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites = 1" or, say, add a line like that to the profile page? (that might even be better and then the profile file could become kindofa ini file for users.)

Thank you...............

Just a thought..............

There is a major issue regarding the addons.mozilla.org method of addon compatibility checking. The problem is that when a addon is detected as incompatible based on version number it becomes impossible to attempt to install it even if the add on it's self is compatible.

The example I am going to use here are unofficial forks of firefox that support both web extensions and npapi plugins. Because some of these forks use quantum version numbers it disables the ability to install the npapi legacy addons (which are still fully compatible)

It is IMPERATIVE that advanced users are provided with an INSTALL ANYWAY button because frankly its a bit stupid and completely broken to prevent advanced users from installing an add on just because of a version number mismatch.

This needs to be fixed and it needs to be fixed yesterday.

I included a image displaying a mockup of how I expect the site to behave instead of simply disabling the addon

just installed the latest current Firefox update which has reverted my tabs to the top rather than below my bookmarks toolbar.

suffice to say this is rather annoying as changing the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in the about:config which l originally did doesnt work any more l did find a userchrome.css file as well that said it would do it on this site but alas my tabs are still above the address bar and not below the bookmarks toolbar where l want them. any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated due to the most recent update causing them to revert back to the top.

The latest FF 65 moved the tabs to the top, where they should not be. The old css workaround doesn't work, and all of the "new" fixes I've tried on my iMac IOS v. 10.13.6 either don't work or put the tabs bar ON TOP of the bookmarks bar. The tabs should be connected to the window they pertain to. Can someone please help me figure this out? I'm not a programmer and really don't want to be, but I really can't stand having the tabs at the top. Thanks for any help.

I just updated from a much older version of Firefox, and now fewer bookmark icons fit in my bookmarks toolbar. I'm hoping there's a way in about:config that I can reduce the buffer space between Bookmarks Toolbar icons.

(Yes, I already deleted the names on the bookmarks in my toolbar, I'm way past that for many years now.)

Would really appreciate some quick pointers on this, since it's dumped 18 icons into the expansion area....

Hello boys and girls; I am using FF 64.0 on Win7. My theme is 'Black and Gold' and I have DuckDuckGo for my homepage. Everything is dark, minimalistic with gold lettering. However, the task bar at the bottom of the screen, the bookmarks bar, and the search/address/awesome/toolbar are all gray. The address bar is a lighter shade of gray with black lettering. I suspect that is a windows thing and I could probably learn to live with it, but would like to change it also. I would provide an image, but screenshot doesn't seem to want to include the the header or toolbars.

I have created a chrome file for a .css command, but I'm not sure if this is the right direction or what to put in it.

If it is possible, could someone please provide detailed instructions as to how to change these areas.

I want the remove the "X" button when i have a single tab open. not when i have multiple tabs open. i constantly close Firefox when i mean to open a 2nd tab.

It isnt a problem if i close a tab if i have other tabs open because i can just use "CTL+SHIFT+T" to reopen the tab, but if i close a single tab, all of firefox closes. there used to be add-ons which gave me the options, but not anymore.

Now, the screen is really wide enough, the height is not enough, One line URLBAR is not necessary

Use Userchrome to implement urlbar-container and TabsToolbar are on the same line

Upgrading FIREFOX to 65.0 is a bit of a problem because TabsToolbar is in titlebar and urlbar is in nav-bar.

Hopefully, urlbar-container can be moved to Tabs Toolbar like a button, which is simple, the previous version(<20.x) is possible.

I am trying very hard to use Firefox Quantum and move on from Firefox 56, and the one thing that most drives me crazy is the single row for tabs.

I've tried implementing workarounds with the userChrome.css, such as the one found here: https://github.com/Izheil/Quantum-Nox-Firefox-Dark-Full-Theme/tree/master/Multirow%20and%20other%20functions/Multirow%20tabs — but all my attempts have failed.

Does anyone know of another solution?

It's been horrible using a browser with only one row for tabs. It's very hard to find the tabs I want and to manage my open tabs, even using the menu which shows all of them. I often have no idea of how many tabs I have open, and I often end up with multiple tabs for the same page because I am not aware that it is already open or because it would take too long to find it.

With Firefox 56 and Tab Mix Plus, I usually had around 40 to 50 tabs open most of the time, and when I'm researching stuff this number easily gets to the hundreds for a while. With Firefox Quantum I have been unable to manage my tabs properly: I end up with much more tabs than I really need and it's hard to keep then organized.

I feel like I am struggling to save a marriage that can't be saved. I don't want to leave Firefox, but it's becoming unbearable. Feel free to suggest another browser as a solution to my problem.

The solution posted here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1210576

worked wonderfully for providing an automatic load of a *local* homepage in a new tab until FF v62.0. I've checked my config file and js file, and both are correct and in the correct location, but now FF 62 broke this again. Two questions: *WHY*, and how do I force this back to the *obvious* choice of wanting a new tab to load your homepage (including *LOCAL*, no-net-needed, no junk, fast loading pages). No good explanation has ever been provided for why this simple functionality is forced away from users. This is *obvious* functionality, why is there not a good explanation of why FF developers won't provide their users with this capability.
