Hello, Can someone please tell me how to stop my "search bar" text from also showing up in my "address bar"? I have search the internet and found all of the following ways that have been suggested that have not worked.

I read that I should set the following to "false" to solve my problem.

1) keyword.enabled 2) browser.fixup.alternate.enabled 3) browser.urlbar.suggest.surches

I have also gone into the settings menu and un-checked everything I could find about suggestions or words or anything else being added to the address bar. The only thing that should show up in and address bar is................you guessed it: AN ADDRESS!  :-) Thanks so much for your help.

I really appreciate the help. Mark

When I go to bookmark a web site, as I start to type the bookmark folder name it vanishes.

I have to go into the bookmarks folder, find the no name folder and type in the new folder name. 

As I start typing I have to enter the first letter twice as first strike does not work.

I have thousands of bookmarks which are set up in a Book, Chapter, Paragraph, Sentence format. So when a new folder goes missing it is easy to find the unnamed or a folder with no name. Thank you for the help.

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

My bookmarks disappeared mysteriously yesterday while I was using the browser. All of them (I have a lot), there's nothing in the bookmarks toolbar. I use Firefox on two different machines regularly, and yesterday the second machine was fine, bookmarks still there. Today I logged on and the second computer had lost its bookmarks too.

I tried restoring. It worked on my other computer, no problem, all bookmarks returned. However, on this one the restore points are visible, but when I click them, nothing happens. I have tried restarting Firefox, no luck. Any ideas?

Nightly 95 on Windows 11 - Minimize & Maximize Buttons Are Missing

I have recently clean installed Windows 11 on my computer. I have noticed with the current Nightly 95 install that the minimize & maximize buttons are completely gone, only the close button is there. Even when I click on the area where the 2 missing buttons are nothing happens. When I double click the same area, the area behaves the same way as the rest of the top bar, it either makes the current window become a smaller window or a full window.

I have also installed Firefox 93 and 94 Beta 6, they both behave as normal with the minimize and maximize buttons visible and usable, just like any other program or Firefox version ever on Windows. Also, before I clean installed Windows 11, I used Nightly 95 on Windows 10 within the last day or so and I don't recall ever having this behavior happen there either.

Is this behavior on Nightly 95 on Windows 11 intentional or an error? I know Firefox has and is going through a massive GUI update and other user facing changes with Proton, but wasn't sure if this had anything to do with the trouble I am experiencing. I also understand that Nightly may have a lot of changes and features that are unique to it. I honestly just wasn't sure about this issue.

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

No websites will load at all. The address looks fine but the loading ends up timing out just like when the address isn't correct or the site is having issues. I believe this started after the last update, I don't remember if it was a Firefox or windows update. I've tried the suggested troubleshooting tips, and uninstalled re-installed firefox twice. All I achieved was to lose my dark theme and previous open tabs.

FF 98.0.2 - just updated. Top five lines of FF are TINY - using the ZOOM function only enlarges the body of the webpage, not the top five lines, FF logo, menu bar,’ Bookmarks Toolbar, etc. All previous suggestions have been to use Zoom control or to adjust size in about:config. That is ignoring the problem. Some answers claim the problem is in system settings. However, this is a brand new out of the box computer, when I use the Microsoft Edge installed on it, the corresponding lines of that browser are functional, not microscopic, so I KNOW MOZILLA CAN DO BETTER. PLEASE DO!!! I'm not the only person going blind and crazy trying to read the top five lines and getting bad suggestions (though thank you all for trying.) I have another computer running FF 93.0 and I'm not updating that one until the latest version is fixed. Please see two pix taken at 240% zoom, both screen resolutions the same, 1366x768. It is clearly seen that the test on ver 93.0 is larger than on 98.0.2. And just for giggles, a shot of MS Edge...look at the size of the top lines. (I've done a ton of troubleshooting in my career. Something's not right.)

Is there any way (as in Thunderbird, via layouts.css.devPixelsperPx) to enlarge everything on a given monitor/display/colorDepth setting? Or an approach using userChrome.css that impacts everything, not just displayed text in the browser. Yes, this is a "tired old eyes" (excessive nanoseconds spent looking at bigger and bigger displays with higher and higher resolution) type question. My setup is multiple boot OS including Windows 11, Ubuntu, Manjaro, Arch. In each Firefox is the default browser, but Chrome and Edge seem to have more fine-grained controls for managing the chrome display than Mozilla. Using the latest 64-bit Firefox (100.02) if that's helpful.

How to limit search to only useful pages

Hi,

There are two suggestions (or questions if I simply cannot find these): - as the default behaviour of the browser, I want to be able to only see websites from Europe. Somewhere on the net I found that the following address does it: https://www.google.com/webhp?cr=countryAT|countryBE|countryBG|countryHR|countryCY|countryCZ|countryDK|countryEE|countryFI|countryFR|countryDE|countryGR|countryHU|countryIE|countryIT|countryLV|countryLT|countryLU|countryMT|countryNL|countryPL|countryPT|countryRO|countrySK|countrySI|countryES|countrySE

However, when I am trying to use it in firefox as my Start Page, it opens all of these in separate tabs and it does not work. Also as far as I understand using the link is not possible for new tabs.

The reason is simple. For example, when looking for cooking recipes, pages from the USA use strange units that cannot be understood and there is no point in translating each of these manually as all recipes are available in million of versions - it is just a matter of clicks. But I don't want to waste time each time on checking the websites one by one; if the cooking website is from Europe, the units will be of a standard and I don't have to worry. It is the same in relation to many products of any kind. European and American markets are completely different and reading description of something only to find out at the end that it is only available in the USA is waste of time.

- it should be possible in firefox to block some websites or portals by some button. I know that there is an add-on for this but it is only for 10 pages or so, so in reality it is not very useful. It also only works in the way that the page won't open when clicked on. However, it would be much better if unwanted portals or websites were simply removed from search results.

There are too many fake websites nowadays providing incorrect or misleading information. If it happens that I come across one of these, I want to be doing that only once - and block them forever.

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.
