Can not disable address bar search

I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!

So, the old problem of double spacing is back. Luckily only on bookmarks menu and sidebar, but even so it's annoying.

Has there been any progress with finding a solution for this perennial nuisance?

Also, the userchrome.css fixes I've used previously don't seem to be working. What's the latest fix to be used?

I just upgraded to version 102.1.2 and almost all is working fine. However, when I go to my Newsgroups I now need to enter Username and Password.

I have checked the "Use Password Manger to remember this password." It works for that time but then a few minutes later I need to do it all over again!!!

Then when I try to go to Tools>Options>Privacy & Security>Passwords the "Options" link does NOT exist!!!

In all the years of using Thunderbird this has never happened before on a Upgrade to a new version.

Is there a fix for this in another update or is there something I am missing??

Thanks,

Les

Hello,

For several weeks now I've been experiencing issues with accessing google sites. YouTube videos will constantly display the "Connect to the internet. You're offline. Check your connection." error page. Additionally gmail and google drive will constantly give the "OOPs" error message. Sometime the page will load w constant refreshes but this is not ideal.

I've done the following:

Clear history/cookies Opening in troubleshoot mode Disable hardware acceleration Refresh/Reinstall

Have even tried the following articles: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1377868 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1376015

Still getting the same results. Not having any issues with edge/chrome. Does anyone have anything else that could be done?

I have been using Thunderbird for some years on my laptop (Windows 10). All updates have been automatic, occuring when Thunderbird is turned on. Recently a message popped up requiring me to download an upgrade from the Mozilla website. I did so, and installed version 102.1.0. A couple of days later I received the same message when I turned Thunderbird on, and went through the same routine, installing version 102.1.1. Yesterday I received the same message, and then downloaded and installed version 102.1.2. Today I received the same message, but when I downloaded the update file it was version 102.1.2, which is already installed. In Thunderbird, when I check Help on the menu, the installed update is 102.1.2. It looks to me that something is wrong. After the initial upgrade, should further updates to it be automatic? I should not be receiving popup messages almost every day from Mozilla, and I should not constantly be going to the Mozilla webite to download and install further upgrade/update files. Thanks, Roger

On some of the sites that support hardware 2FA, I notice in Chrome there is an option to add an android phone for as a security key. I tried this out by adding my Pixel 3aXL as a key. Afterwards, when I log into the site, I have an option to use the iphone for 2FA, and when I select it, it sends a push notification to my phone to approve or deny.

I tried this in Firefox and there is no option for it. In about:config, I tried playing around with security.webauthn.ctap2 and security.webauth.webauthn_enable_softtoken, but neither enable the option. I was wondering what would enable such a support on Firefox?

The relatively new computer (running Windows 10) used by a non-admin person keeps asking for admin permission every time there's a firefox update. I have several other workstations with firefox and none of those ask for admin rights to be able to update. No solution found in several internet searches for this problem. I'm about ready to put Chrome on this person's computer so I don't have to go to his desk & enter my admin credentials for just a damn FF update.

Hello,

I am trying to download a 5GB .zip file from a website. Inside the .zip file is a single .netCDF file. When I download the file and open it, both windows explorer and 7zip say there is a problem with the file: "Unexpected end of data". I have downloaded this file multiple times and the file size is different every time. The largest proportion I have managed to download is 1.7GB. I have noticed that the file size I end up with is proportional to the download speed during the download (usually between 20 to 40 Mbps).

I have also noticed that the download never lasts longer than ~30 seconds, which is why I think it could be a Firefox issue. Is there some way I can remove this 30 second cap? The download speed is limited by the host website so I am afraid there is not much I can do in that regard.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

I can no longer use Yahoo Mail on Firefox and have had to move to Chrome and Bing in the short term.

1) Contacts no longer show up when starting to compose a mail

2) Writing a mail - the CTRL key no longer work. CTRL I opens a Page Info CTRL B Opens Bookmarks etc....

3) None of the buttons work at the top -Move -Delete -Spam

Basically, Firefox is useless for Yahoo Mail now!

Firefox is normally the best, but not yesterday or today.

Hope it can be fixed soon.

UPDATE: In Privacy and Security, I just turned on Antivirus which allows the antivirus client to quarantine the individual message and not my entire inbox. Let's see if that helps!

When I download my e-mail in Thunderbird on my Surface, Windows Defender says I might have a virus. Meanwhile, my inbox shows several messages, but none of them have content. Just the Subject line.

I've run Windows Defender scans and it says there are no current threats. I've even run the offline scan, which is supposed to be extensive, and no virus.

If I download my e-mail in Thunderbird to my old Dell laptop (instead of my Surface), the messages are all normal with subject line and content, so it definitely seems as if I have a virus on my Surface. However, it doesn't happy every day. And, if I use my other laptop to resend the same messages to me on my Surface, they appear normal.

Is this behavior normal for Thunderbird if there is a virus and if so, how can I get rid of it? I've had Thunderbird for decades. I've had the same e-mail address for almost 30 years! Thanks!

Hi. Been using TB for about 8 months and recently updated from version: 102.1.1 (I think) to current version: 102.1.2 (64-bit) Hopefully I'll get help with my SMTP problem that sometimes manifested itself some time ago, but now I can't send any mail for weeks with my most used mail account via my proximus server. However, we are able to send emails with our gmail accounts! Receiving emails works perfectly. When sending the mails, status message hangs on 'progress' for a long time and then gives an error message: "Sending message failed because outgoing (SMTP) server relay.proximus.be has failed. The server may be unavailable or may refuse SMTP connections. Check the settings

Tried unsuccessfully in the meantime:

  • Connections have been checked several times and are in order.
  • Sending mail via the web server itself: works!

Also tried to fix it by:

  • completely delete my proximus account in TB, reboot & then reinstall: same error message remains!
  • requested a new password via proximus server: no result.

Through 'troubleshooting mode' I get a new error message: "Your TB profile could not be loaded. It may not be present or inaccessible"

Already asked for help regarding the SMTP problems (which originally was the issue) but so far have not received any help. Soon I will have to stop TB because I have to send all mails via web server: not really workable anymore

Thanks

I have looked at information on the Mozilla website about moving my address book but they all seem to deal with previous versions as there instructions don't work. For example when you try to export the only options is to get a Thunderbird_profile_backup.zip file never a csv file. Also many of the instructions are not available in this latest version. All I want to do is to copy the address book to my new laptop I do not want any emails or anytning else copied. Any help will be appreciated.
