URL autofill suddenly putting popular URLs (microsoft, pinterest, etc.) before my actual frequently-visited URLs

I just opened up Firefox on Android today and suddenly when trying to use autofill to visit my typical sites, it's changed what pops up first to very popular sites (a good chunk of which I don't frequent); microsoft.com instead of marvelousnews.com, office.com instead of oafe.com, stackoverflow.com instead of seibertron.com, twitter.com instead of toyark.com, bing.com instead of brickset.com, etc. I tried looking in the Search settings to see if something had been clicked on that wasn't before, but I couldn't find any culprit that actually changed this.

How do we permanently block and keep a website from being able to return bk into a person's life after the site was the cause of an immense amount of financial and emotional hardship. By having something that does this, like the Duck browser does, our clients, friends and family will feel more safe, right?

From the image below, I asked a question and the results are there. I've tried this on my tablet as well, getting the exact sane results, no matter what I put in the search results.

However, I choose Google as the search engine (as you can see from the image below), while Firefox still being the main browser and I got results to the question below.

What is happening with your browser or duckduckgo search engine? In all my years of using these platforms, I've never had this issue. Yes, I'm Android user and haven't changed any devices. My setup is the sane on all my devices.

Hello, for some reason over the last few weeks my mobile Firefox app has been altering my search results and blocking "adult content" when not browsing on incognito mode, websites and apps such as twitter, Reddit and the obvious others that show "nsfw" tagged content just doesn't show up, it is even happening for movies or TV shows marked 18+ on my search engine unless I'm on incognito. How do I amend this? I've not seen this before at all nor have I changed any settings or ever been logged into a Firefox account. Thanks

Hello! Thank you for your help! I want to install my personalized version of startpage as the common search engine on my android mobile.

This is my personalized search string: https://www.startpage.com/do/mypage.pl?prfe=88c786572599bb1107d3c74eaec3b3ca5076330f9b0ee54884a22b7a784d2b0a689bbc9b7a89edd7438b53c487ee2e4e628759948e78c9e03a2a82c5107f459c595a56be6ab8c7def9ac63f6

But it is not possible!

On the mozilla helppage it says (translated from german): https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/suchmaschinen-verwalten-firefox-android#w_hinzufugen-einer-zusatzlichen-vordefinierten-suchmaschine

"If the entered Internet address (URL) of the search string is invalid, an error message is displayed to help you enter a valid Internet address. Important: Make sure that you replace the search string with the placeholder "%s", for example:

https://www.google.com/search?q=%s https://www.startpage.com/sp/search?q=%s https://search.brave.com/search?q=%s https://www.ecosia.org/search?q=%s


But as you can see, in my personalized search string there is no placeholder! What to do to install nevertheless my personalized version of the startpage search string as the common search engine on my android mobile?

Thank´s a lot

Frinstance...

Look at a list of search results, tap on a link.

I want to view the linked page in a new tab. Not the page of search results.

Thanks in advance!

The URL autocomplete behavior changed for me recently - it appears to be incorporating "top sites" to its suggestions. Typing "P" into the address bar now suggests "pinterest.com", "D" gets "diply.com", "C" gets craigslist, etc - none of these are sites that I've visited, they aren't in my history or bookmarks.

In firefox focus, I can turn this behavior off by going into the autocomplete settings and disabling "top sites", and it doesn't happen on my desktop Firefox- how do I disable these junk suggestions in Firefox Android?

When typing the name of a bookmarked site, it disappears from suggestions after a certain letter

When trying to open a bookmarked site, for example "https://mstdn.social/@noelreports", it suggests the site up until having typed in "noe". So, I can type in "n", "o" and "e" and get it suggested all the time. But as soon as "l" is added, the suggestion disappears. But this "l" is part of both the page title and the address, so that is really strange. Very irregularly, when I delete the last letter and retype it, the bookmark suddenly appears. On the synced Windows 10 installation of Firefox, everything works flawlessly.

Since 1/8/24 I have been unable to load www.google.com on Firefox for Android 121.0.1 (Build #2015995071). It displays only a blank white page. It works fine in other browsers or if I toggle desktop mode. Add-ons aren't a factor as I've tried with them disabled.
