My mother asked me to help fix a problem on her Macintosh firefox browser. I googled it to death and now I'm here. She is use to her firefox home page search bar displaying the suggestions below the search bar. Her firefox homepage, google search bar(in the middle of the screen), now, once you start to type it jumps to the address bar / search bar (at the top). How do I make the firefox homepage search suggestions stay under the firefox homepage search bar rather then jump to the top address bar location when I start to type in the home screen search bar (middle of the screen). Note: another user prefers the address bar to search, so both options need to be available. I hope I was able to describe my problem well enough to get it solved. Best wishes!

I deplore the way the browser looks now and want the old look back... I have vision problems and am totally ignorant about computers. I finally found FF and the last version was PERFECT. I could clearly see it, knew how to use it, and LOVED it and I WANT IT BACK. SIMPLY... Because I am so ignorant, the instructions I have seen so far might have been written in a foreign language. Is there a SIMPLE way to restore the OLD LOOK and feel. Keeping all the new security and other stuff is fine...although I was fine with the way it was, but I will have to find another browser if someone cannot help me fix the image back to the way it was. Please, why do they upgrade this stuff and not leave a way to keep the old look for those of us who don't want to change? If anyone can help me...I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

I currently back up most of the files on my computer with a program that watches files and uploads them to cloud whenever they change. I'm wondering if this would be an effective way to back up my Firefox profiles, given that I usually have Firefox open.

I've noticed the article on (manually) backing up profiles says to close Firefox prior to copying the profile folder. Is that just to prevent users from getting tripped up by the lock file? Or is there another reason for it?

After updating to 89.0 on Windows 10, I don't see a speaker icon on the tab that's currently playing audio unless I hover over the tab. In to previous releases, any tab that was playing audio had a speaker icon that showed you which tab(s) are playing.
