I want to disable all of the automatic suggestions and autocomplete functions. I am totally blind, and I have recently had problems with a suggestion appear which was wrong! I entered my four-digit address, and the autosuggestions popped up several addresses - ALL OF WHICH WERE WRONG! I was very annoyed arrowing through the items, listening to them spoken, and finding that NONE of them were correct. I got lost in one of those darned suggestion systems while finalizing an order and eventually closed Firefox and started the process over. I had those darned suggestions turned off at one time, but they must have come back on when the last update occurred. So i want to fix Firefox so that it will simply let me type in the needed information - address, or whatever is needed - with no suggestions popping up - hopefully so they will stay off PERMANENTLY!

About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

First off, I'm kind of a nincompute. So, simply, my bookmarks always separate somewhere in the middle of the list. Each section is alphabetically arranged.

  But why does this happen? I choose to sort by alphabet, so I should have one list with all the A's in one place, etc., instead of two lists.
  I never chose to divide the list, and i can't figure out how the bookmark genie picks what goes where.

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?

Have been experiencing frequent "Gah" tab closures and unexpected Firefox shutdowns lately which require "Restore Now" action. Am running latest version of Firefox on Win10 desktop which is updated religiously. Have run Task Manager which indicates no activity higher than a Medium rating. Interestingly, while I experienced a couple of tab closures this morning, they are predominately later in the day and on occasion I need to reboot the system to get Firefox operating. Hopefully there is a relatively simple fix for this issue. Thanks.
