I'm having similar issues to described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090728

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

This started last week when i migrated to a new iMac.

I went through all of the troubleshooting steps described in the article above but still no suggestions in the address bar.

I'd like to continue using Firefox but this is a deal breaker. What can i do?

Hi! im moving to firefrox from chrome and im really happy with it but the main trouble i have is that i work with one page in particular in wich i must load documentation, to make it i must click and then a pop up should appear (Is in the pop-up where i drag the documents and load them into the page). I've tried it with the latest firefox on Windows 10, a previous version of firefox on Windows 7, on ubuntu, with and without Add-ons and that page in particular wont let the pop-up appear. BUT! if i try it with my phone (with iOS) works completly fine. This thing is driving me crazy, for real. I dont understand why the pop-up wont appear on web but yes on mobile... PLEASE HELP! (Also, i gave the page the permissions to enable pop-ups and re-installed Adobe)

This is a problem connected with SCROLLING. There are three standard ways of scrolling , while surfing and looking through site pages: 1. Use the Mouse roller 2. Use the left click press on the mouse, simultaneously press and move the scroll bar 3. There are two Scroll bar junctions - one at top and other at base. The mouse left click button may be clicked - either in steps or on a continued click... to make the page move ... in steps or on a continuous movement.

The QUESTION here is: While we have this Last No.3 above facility in UBUNTU-Mate, such facility is not seen in UBUNTU, XUBUNTU, LUBUNTU, KUBUNTU etc. WHY?

Can we not have the same facility in the other OS too?

i had 2 versions of firefox on my desktop, so i deleted the older version....wrong. it was the one that had all of my bookmarks, themes, and plugins, so i had to start all over. i got most of them back on but now when i get to my browser with my customized theme, the whole top is solid even though the screenshot of the theme i downloaded shows the address space and search space to be white. the tabs lines are also hard to see. if i remember right from quite a while ago, i had to change something in about:config to get the address bar and search bar to be white and for the tabs to be a different color than the rest of the toolbar. i'm using 76.0.1 (64 bit). see screenshot below

I have been using Firefox Send for several months now with no problems. However, at the moment, I upload my documents, copy the link and send my email & link as always and everything seems like usual. But when the link is clicked on by the recipient, the documents are not there and only a blank white rectangle appears on the screen within the Firefox tab. Please see the uploaded image.

I am running Windows 10 and Avast security software (nothing has changed). I tried refreshing Firefox, then uninstalling & reinstalling it, then created a new user account, all to no avail. I have a feeling it's a settings issue on my PC (I had some extra users on my system recently), but I don't know where to start looking or how to analyze the options.

I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions as to how to make Firefox Send work again!

Thank you for your help!

Hi, Simce the upgrade to the newest version, Firefox won’t allow me to log in to BT Mail, the website giving me an “incorrect password” message. It works perfectly on all other browsers, so isn’t a problem with my password or with BT. I’ve done all the usual clearing of cache, cookies etc, but no joy. A quick google showed other people having the same problem with Firefox/BT Mail in the last few weeks. Is this a known issue? I really don’t want to move away from Firefox, but this is a problem! Thanks.

Ever since I can remember I have never got the microphone to work correctly in Firefox 76.0 under GNU/Linux (x64_x86). After many years I now tried a site where I can record from my mic and I noticed that the sound is mostly heard at the beginning of words and static when I do not talk. It is if there is noise reduction or some kind of threshold ( inverted gate/expander) killing everything above a certain level.

In other apps it works without changing a single parameter in ALSA or Pulseaudio and letting them use the exact same settings as when trying it out in Firefox.

Greetings.

I have been experiencing a problem saving bookmarks with favicons. I am able to save bookmarks but unable to save favicons with them. This only happens when the option "Remember browsing and download history" is OFF. Thus to save a bookmark with favicon I do need to ON the above option. Consequently if the option "Remember browsing and download history-Browsing & Download History" is ON then these favicons will be deleted when close Firefox.

A few examples of websites affecting are, https://www.alfaromeo.com.au/ https://flagfox.net/index.php https://www.qbittorrent.org/

It seems only some sites are affected and in my bookmarks they are 14 of them. I would like to know how to keep favicons permanently and make Firefox not to remember browsing and download history plus let it clean browsing & download history when Firefox closes.

Windows 10 18363.836/Firefox 76.0.1

My hard drive is crashing. I switched to my admin user in a quick clean up effort, yet when I opened Firefox, it does not have me logged in. No problem... or so I thought. My password did not work. Though I did not want to reset everything, it was in moving to that option I realized my email address is misspelled. It has one letter in it that is wrong. I believe I have a second email address in the system, yet without being able to log-in, I am stuck. I cannot find a way to submit a ticket for help as with other sites. Does anyone have the answer?

I need to download a Visio file with the file extension .vsdx from a program online where I must save the file to my computer. However, Firefox automatically labels the content type as a Firefox document, and adds htm at the end of the file. It does not matter if I change the document type to Visio, this continues to happen. It will even save the file as Firefox document, .vsdx.htm. Yes, I have checked my program defaults.

I really just need someone to help me change the code to make Firefox recognize that .vsdx is a forking Visio Drawing file, and not a Firefox document.

Thank you in advance.

Auto-update consequences: Unwanted (regional) search engines, despite having en-US set as my locale, and partially reset browser settings

Hello everyone,

Today my Windows 10 and Firefox browser have automatically updated themselves, which is totally fine, however, to my shock, when I started the browser, I found out that my default search engine was replaced by "Yandex", as well as "eBay" was added to the list of search engines, and I always had only Google (default), Bing and DuckDuckGo. I did not consent to this, nor I was warned that was going to happen. It's important to note that while I'm currently residing in Russia and therefore have a Russian IP address, all my programs, my OS and Firefox were set to use English as the default and only language, and I had everything pointing to United States as my only choice of region/location/language in the Windows regional settings. Also, further digging reveled that these were not the only settings that were reset. Among them were ALL privacy settings, toolbar & UI customizations, and Pocket has raised from the dead, despite being completely switched off with about:config settings. And I am yet to discover how many other about:config settings were reset as well. The history, downloads and bookmarks all seem to be unaffected and in place and order.

I know what the first reply is going to be: "You've got a virus, bud", but before anyone jumps to a conclusion that I've indeed got a virus/malware/whatever, absolutely the same thing has happened on my Linux install as well. No, it isn't a virus, at least on my end. It appears that Mozilla is the one engaging in such behavior. How else would you explain that both installs, one of which came from the official Mozilla's FTP, and the other one is from the official Arch repos, are both poisoned by this?! And guess what, I tried to replicate this in a virtual machine — absolutely the same result! All of the regional settings and the guest OS are set to English (United States), but I still get what I now call a "regional inconvenience and overall experience downgrade pack".

I'd really like to hear an explanation as to why this happens and possibly have a responsible person's attention to the matter, or at least be able to file a bug report (if it is a bug, which I doubt it is — take a look at the paragraph above). But regardless of that I believe that such behavior on Mozilla's end is intolerable, infuriating and disrespectful to both users' settings and the users themselves, which is not how I remember Mozilla, when I started using Firefox (that was around when 1.5 came out).

Now, a message to Mozilla: If this continues, and if this is how Mozilla envisioned the future of Firefox, I'm afraid it's time for us to part ways and either use a fork that doesn't do this, or join the evil forces of IE6 2.0... whoops, I meant Chromium/Blink.

You were indeed fighting for our freedoms back in the day, but apparently you are now fighting only for your monetary gains by pre-installing such regional inconvenience and overall experience downgrade packs. If I have an English (US) OS, but live in another country, I still want to have the same experience as English (US) users who are in the US. I don't need such "convenience". You need to understand something: nobody does! If they do have an urge to use a vanda...-"regionalized" browser; they'd download an appropriate version and happily use it with their favorite search engine! Whereas me, and people like me can't, because you are forcing the same experience onto us. I've spent 15 years with Firefox and I wouldn't want to abandon using this amazing browser, but please, change your ways and consider your partnerships. Otherwise I want to do nothing with a browser that respects neither my settings, nor me.
