If Firefox is all about privacy, how come Firefox uses Google as default search engine? It's like trying to avoid being spied and hiring the NSA to help you.

I don't understand why Firefox hasn't chosen Duckduckgo or other instead. Makes it appear fishy to me... Unless you get money from Google...

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

Hello to whom it may concern: Two days ago my Firefox Browser was updated for my automatically, to 75.0(64-Bit). But today I need to reboot my computer due to things getting slow. Once I rebooted I had noticed when I had opened Outlook Email in my Firefox Browser the "Junk E-mail Folder" had disappeared. I immediately went to my standby browser on 'Edge' and checked to see if things had also changed on my Outlook E-mail account, it was all good nothing missing or changed. I totally only use Firefox Browser it is the only browser I trust and know that protects me(plus Firefox is so much faster). I do hope this issue can be fixed fast, since I do get important e-mails that end up in my Junk e-mail folder I need to have access to. Kindest regards, Milton

Thank you for any assistance you can provide. I very much appreciate it. I am able to join a conference on BigBlueButton. However, I cannot activate my microphone or webcam.

I followed the Mozilla instructions for allowing microphone and webcam permission for this site. However, when I enter the web address for the site into the "Settings-Camera Permissions" or "Settings-Microphone" box, and hit "Enter," it will not enter the website.

I'm on a mac ios, and I also followed the Mozilla instructions for changing the camera and microphone permissions in the system preferences>privacy settings, but was unsuccessful there as well.

Again, thank you for any help you can provide.

Whenever I open fire fox it automatically opens in fullscreen. Hitting F11 does nothing. I open it in safe mode and I see the address and search bar and everything but I am unable to click on them and honestly it doesn't even look right when I open it up in safe. I provided pictures. I have been all over the settings and looked into multiple forums that all say the same things and tells you how to get out of fullscreen mode but not anything on how to stop it from happening automatically on open. I have uninstalled and re-installed as well.

Anyone have any insight?

I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob

Hi, I have updated to the latest verson 75.0, and I am a little uncomfortable for the default action when I open a new tab, the cursor focused on the address bar , and the address bar was widened and made a little shadow to the bookmarks bar which caused discomfort for me, because I always open website by bookmarks bar, no need for typing the full address in the adress bar. I have searched the config options but none is effective and also tried about:config, is there anyway not to widen the address bar or is there a configuration when I click the bookmark in current tab,it will open in new tab not replace the current tab .If it is possible by not downloading a lower verson,please let me know how to config it,thank you.

Good Evening,

Many thanks in advance to anybody who may be of assistance in providing steps towards a resolution.

Essentially with Firefox 75.0 on Windows 10 64 bit, Firefox seems to have a completely dysfunctional spell checker.

This is despite the spell check option for “check my spelling” being enabled in settings and a dictionary being installed.

The advanced options also on “spellcheckDefault pref” has selected Boolean as opposed to Number or String, for whatever difference this would make.

Additionally in other browsers on the same system, screenshot provided Chromium Edge Beta, spellchecker does work as expected.

Is this a Windows 10 wide issue, since on my work P.C [also Windows 10 64 bit] – this version running Firefox E.S.R - I experience the same issues with spell check despite, like on my home machine, having spell check enabled in settings and a dictionary installed.

Many thanks for any assistance which may be given.

EDIT: 28/04/2020, 17:30 GMT: Title changed to reflect what actually was installed | Original Question: "Windows 10 Firefox 75.0 | Spellcheck not working despite enabling in settings + Dictionary installed" - Dictionary not actually installed at time of asking.


____________________________________________________________________ Screenshots included [all on home machine]:

  • Firefox version
  • Lack of Firefox spell check functionality in practice [Bing Search Translate Box]
  • Chromium Edge Beta spell check functionality present [Bing Search Translate Box]
  • Advanced Settings – relating to spellcheck preferences
  • Settings for enabling spell check
  • Dictionary settings

A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.
