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?

I recently migrated all of my files and applications from a 2013 macbook retina pro that had FF 56.0.2 to a 2020 macbook retina pro. The application transferred over with no problems with one exception. I have a blog on livejournal.com and now cannot post or reply to comments on the blog. FF just hangs and freezes. I can't even quit the page unless I quit FF totally and then restart. I can still access livejournal from Safari w/no problems. I checked my extensions (only have two) and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing has helped. Does anyone have any suggestion? I'm not crazy about safari and would like to continue to use FF. Thanks so much for any help!

I'm out of tricks here. Last night I updated Windows on my desktop (Windows 10) and after several hiccups and restarts the computer is operating correctly...except for Firefox. The browser window opens normally but clicking on any bookmark or typing a web addy manually does nothing...it just stays blank. When using a bookmark, no address propagates to the address bar. In an effort to fix this I have done Firefox refresh (a few times now), run Firefox in troubleshoot mode (a few times and at least once this caused Firefox to crash), uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (twice, second time WITHOUT saving prior account settings), restarted computer and uninstalled adblocker.

Absolutely NO change from any of this. My laptop (Apple with Firefox) works fine and the desktop WILL browse just fine on MS Edge, so this is not a connectivity problem. Any ideas on fixing this would be greatly appreciated. TIA

I am trying to disable Firefox notifications whenever I take screenshots, and googling for solutions, I found the commonly suggested solution is to uncheck the "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" box in Permissions:

How to turn off forever the "screenshot" splash notification

"shot Copied" window

This option is not available in my browser version; thus, I'm hoping there's a newer workaround for this.

how to redirect to a page without firefox asking me to allow it? - on macbook

hello, this happens now every time i click a link to another site from an email. yes i want firefox to prevent the automatic redirection that some sites try to pull; but it should be obvious that when i click a link that i want to go there. (ie an email from discover card with a link to "view statement") links do work in other circumstances (ie a link to a youboob video from a wfmu comment board)

i've checked out the answers to this basic question and it is not solved. not for version 73.0.1 anyway.

in my preferences there is no "advanced" (except for fonts & colors); there is no "accessibility"...
someone suggested going to "about:config" and turning "blockautorefresh" to false. it seems like that might mess up some other functions...what's autorefresh got to do with redirecting? i do recall seeing the option "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page", but that must've been on an older firefox version, or on my ancient windows laptop, because i cannot find it now. 
            Thanks

I haven't been able to update Firefox (Mac, desktop) since version 82 because all updates use a font I can't read. Websites are displayed correctly, but bookmarks, most Firefox preferences (including about:config), tab headings and search imputs are as shown in the screenshots.

Today I downloaded version 90 and it's still happening. Please see the screenshots of the Firefox welcome screen, and the font selections in the preferences. The version for the screenshots is a new, clean download using default settings, with no addons or bookmarks.

I don't know if the font is a real language or not.
