I am running the latest beta version (45.0b1) and whenever i close out of firefox the search bar is missing and i have to go into the customization menu and add it back to my menu bar. All my bookmarks remain, and all the changes i initially made to the menu are there, but the search bar keeps getting removed. When i updated to the latest beta version everything was fine. Now all of a sudden my search bar disappears every time i open a new session.

I prefer my own system that I have been using for years. I definitely do not want records of deleted files sitting there in Smart Views. Once deleted, I want them to stay gone. Who's idea was this to foist this program off onto people any way? Shades of the Microsoft 10 fiasco..... What do I have to do to take Smart Views off of my computer, not hidden -- gone?

Problem started 7 March. I am suddenly unable to enter text into the WYSIWYG editor of any WordPress dashboard (on different servers) as well as Facebook. I have had no problem on any other browser; as you can see from the screen shot, cursor spontaneously jumps to beginning of line at random intervals while typing. I tried to enter "unable to type in field" and this is what happens.

If you take a really old version of Firefox, say version 30, and ask it to update it often fails to update to the latest version. It might update to, say, version 37 then you have to update version 37 to the current version. So the whole process takes twice as long as it should. Very tedious but a long-standing problem. Can it not be fixed?

Hello,

Strangely when I updated to Firefox 44 (or some time near it) I had to enter all my passwords (like proxy) every time, while in the past I had just to click "OK". I found out that the password manager was empty with no Logins and Passwords registered.

1) I checked that I'm not browsing in private mode and my security setting is "remember history".

2) I reinstalled Firefox

3) I disabled all add-ons

4) I disabled Sync

5) I tried safe mode and the problem persists

6) I tried to delete the signons.sqlite and key3.db files in the profiles folder

None seems to be working. Any ideias?

Bye,

When I click the history drop-down button to the right of the URL/Search field the list appears briefly and then the first item in the list is automatically selected taking me to that web site. This does not leave me enough time to select the site I want from the list.

I am using Firefox 45.0.

Steps: 1) Open new tab 2) Click history dropdown button 3) First entry populates the URL field with the first item in the list and the browser jumps to that page.

What is the actual URL for the Firefox/Mozilla Search page? I have noticed that a number of people have posed this question online and until now, nobody has as of yet received a straight answer. I use multiple browsers and want to list the Firefox/Mozilla Search as one of three Home pages that will automatically each start on their own tab in Chrome. I use Firefox as my default browser, and there I have the Firefox search, the Google search, and my Facebook all open together when I launch Firefox. I want the same to happen when I launch the Chrome browser, but I can't get to the Firefox/Mozilla Search in another browser without the URL, or the IP address associated with that URL, providing that the IP won't change. Please, now, no more run-around, no more questions, no ifs ands or buts - what is the URL for the Firefox/Mozilla search page? Thanks in advance.

I haven't changed anything but now videos on Youtube or embedded in websites has become choppy but works fine if i start in Firefox safe mode. I can play the same videos in Internet Explorer with no problem. why are they choppy and hesitate in Firefox? I tried to update my plugins, I downloaded VLC player, but that didn't show that it changed in Firefox and it said I needed to update Adobe reader but when I went to that website is said I had the latest version. I updated Java. I got the latest Firebox (45) and let it refresh it to defaults. none of this fixed the video playback issues in this browser. I may just have to give up on Firefox and use a different browser. I have an ACER i5 computer with Windows 7 64bit. all of my computer's firmware for all the hardware it updated. thanks Tim
