On 6-2-2021 the Firefox /browser was automatically updated (errgh!). Now, my tabs are all gone and the History is empty. They were not merely recreational or random. Please help. Thank you in advance!

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.

I use the following crossword site:

https://thenewdaily.com.au/puzzles/quiz-crossword/

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Cheers, "Sunbury Bob"

Hi all, I have downloaded the new firefox 89. I have always had the Google search text box selected for display on my Firefox page. However, I can no longer enter text into it, all text I enter is re-directed to the firefox URL search box. So what is the point of being able to specify a search engine display on the homepage and how can I change the operation back to what is used to be - and indeed SHOULD be. When you select a text box for input by placing your curser in the box, text should ALWAYS be directed to that cursor position otherwise you have complete mayhem!

Hi everyone, I would like to know the way of saving passwords. Are they saved as plaintext ? Or ciphered and locally saved ? Is the Firefox solution as safe as Dashlane or other crypto-secure ways to save passwords ? Is there a technical documentation from Firefox about this topic ? Thanks in advance for your answers ;)

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Random pages do not load correctly. Sometimes pictures are obscured by a series of small green boxes or partially or wholly covered by a green box. The text appears in these instances as either pink/purple or garbled. I have checked and rechecked all available help in the support section and followed all the suggestions. I have completely removed and reinstalled Firefox three times.

I'd like to keep Firefox as my primary browser. Please help!

Opening new tabs to Google search

Running Windows 10 64 bit with the latest updates on Firefox of 89.0.2. I cannot open a new tab to the google search bar by just opening a new tab. It defaults to showing a google search bar, but Firefox will not allow me to type into it. I am constantly redirected to the address bar to write my google searches or to a separate "search" in the same address bar, depending on which option I selected in settings.

I only have two options in Settings: 1) Use the address bar for search and navigation or 2) Add search bar in toolbar. I have Google set as my search engine.

Your previous version of Firefox did allow me to do exactly what I wanted. Now I cannot.

Under "New Tab" you only allow for 2 selections; Firefox home or a blank page, the latter of which does not show the personalized "rows". If you allowed a Google option there, it might resolve my problem.

I attached a picture of my new tab; it shows the search bar for Google, but it now says "Firefox" where it use to have the ever changing "Google" Logo. I do not mind the Firefox logo, but I seriously am upset that I am forced to type searches in the address bar. Who does that?

Furthermore, by forcing me to type in the address bar, its much harder to see what I am typing and allow for me to make corrections. Once I hit enter, it sends me to a typical Google search page, where I can then make changes, but this seems like an annoying step.

Am I missing something, some setting someplace where I can type in the search bar I indicated on my attachment?

On a side note: Thank you for adding a "Personalize" button on a new tab. It now allows me to add rows for shortcuts. Before I had to:

1. Load about:config?filter=browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows in the Firefox address bar. 2. Double-click on the preference browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows and change its value to the desired number of rows and click ok. 3. Check the New Tab Page to see the change right away and modify the number of rows accordingly if needed.

Which I technically have yet to change, because I prefer more than the 4 row limit you set. You will see those shortcuts in the attachment for the new tab.

Thank you for your time. Be safe and have a good day. :)

Since the upgrade to 89, I have a problem with Youtube that, judging by Google results, nobody else on earth has.

If I click on a video, it starts to play normally but as soon as the page finishes loading the video stops and returns to the start of the video. I have to click the play button to get it to play, which it then does without any issues.

The same problem happens when videos are part of one of Youtube's playlists. Video starts, page finishes loading, video stops and goes back to the start.

I've been through too many Google searches, tried about:config changes, policy changes, toggling autoplay in Youtube, installed extensions that supposedly control autoplay. Nothing works.

This was not a problem with 88 when I first had it. When 89 first appeared, I was so frustrated with the wasteful display setup that I uninstalled Firefox and went back to 88; this was when the Youtube issue first appeared. I upgraded back to 89 when I found out how to turn off Proton (because my Bookmark menu shouldn't mostly wasted vertical space) but the Youtube problem persists.

Somebody, please tell me how to fix this.

Hi - I have been using Kaspersky Password Manager for many months, and it has great autofill capability for many browsers. It has been working great with Firefox, but as of a month or 2 ago... it suddenly stopped working. I checked my extensions and it's no longer there. When I search for Kaspersky extensions... I don't see it anymore. Only "Kaspersky Protection", etc. Does anybody know if the extension isn't available for the current Windows version of Firefox? Of COURSE it works great in the (C-Word... CHROME!) Yuk. Thanks.

I have been using Firefox on Windows 8 with confidence for a long time, and do not wish to change. Is it still possible to exchange emails with a minimum of security, without being flooded with spam?
