I hit a wrong button and I don't know how to fix it. Now when Firefox comes up it is only half a page. I can fix it by using the little arrows on the edit function but only for the page I am on. When I go to a new page or a new site, I still get half a page. How do I get a full page all the time?

How do I define which window new tabs should open in?

I normally run two windows of Firefox (macOS 10.13.6, FF 62.0.3 (64-bit)). One as my "main" work window on a monitor and one for YouTube on my laptop screen. I normally start the day by opening up tabs on my monitor and then opening a new tab and dragging it into a new window and onto my laptop screen. The issue with this is that any link that is clicked or new tab that is opened opens on the YouTube window. I need to be able to set the window on my monitor as the "primary" so all new tabs open there. Is this possible?

When I attempt to highlight text in the search bar and address bar the text is not being highlighted. I know I am selecting the text because when I attempt to replace it with new characters the old text that is supposed to be highlighted is gone and replaced with the new ones. However, I cannot see what I highlight since the the typically blue highlight is not appearing. Even when I use keyboard shortcuts such as command + A to select all the text is not highlighted.

I have a site that I log into to check the status of my solar panels (https://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com). There is a bar graph in 15-minute increments that you can scroll over with the mouse (there is also another page at the site that does the same thing, but different type of table)and this is not working with Firefox. I also cannot click on the arrows to change the day. It was working yesterday. This same thing has happened once before. It was working, then stopped. At some point, it started working again.

Ubuntu 16.04. Firefox 62.0.3 (installed from Ubuntu packages).

I realize I'm in a minority on this, but I prefer to use the address bar for addresses (and history) and the search bar for web searches. I detest, loathe, despise the new appearance with the grossly oversized address bar that does everything.

So I went to Preferences and selected "Add search bar in toolbar" (screenshot -- well, I tried to upload a screenshot but the uploader seems to have hung -- anyway trust me, I know where the preference is and it is set as I want).

BUT... every time I launch Firefox, there is no search bar.

Is this a known bug?

What is the workaround?

I'm using the latest version of Firefox, 62.0.3 (64-bit), and it doesn't work right with the website above. Both Edge and Chrome work, but not FireFox. It's as if the frame for the crossword puzzle is cut off and it only shows the top 20% of the frame.
