I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!

In standard mode it plays just fine.

Why on earth would you want the history pane to automatically scroll to the very top after clicking on a result??

And no, I am not opening links in a private window.

This is a stupid design flaw that no other browser has, FIX IT MOZILLA.

https://youtu.be/BQSir2EBjz8

I pinned the new tab page as a way of bringing back the behavior of the new tab page appearing after all other tabs have become closed. Since I don't want to close my other pinned tabs, this is the only way for the new tab page/home page to appear after all unpinned tabs are cleared.

However I notice that search results open in this same tab instead of a new tab, which is a problem that is detrimental for pinned tab users. The point of pinning a tab according to mozilla, is to always keep a website or a page available. If search results are opening in the same tab, the original website that was pinned no longer becomes available.

The solution is to add a preference to allow search results to open in a new tab for pinned tabs. Currently browser.search.openintab is the only relevant option, but that doesn't specifically enable the option of search results to open in a new tab from pinned tabs. In order for the pinned tabs feature to work as mozilla advertises, only results from pinned tabs should open in new tabs so that they don't "take over" the original website that was pinned.

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

Hi - I work from home and for the past few years have used Firefox as my preferred browser, with bookmarks and passwords all saved to my account.

My employer uses "Duo" authentication to sign into applications.

This used to work with Firefox but not it has stopped working. I get prompted to sign in but my details are recognised and it just keeps asking me to sign in. When I neter them the browser keeps balnking them out.

This works on Chrome so I know it must be something to do with Firefox.

I really don't want to change browsers but if this ca't be resolved I'll have to stop using Firefox and delete it.

Regards Steven

Under Windows 10, the Windows taskbar showed Firefox open windows. After migrating to Windows 11, the Windows taskbar shows all tabs opened, without grouping them by window.

I read this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1222298

but the suggested fix isn't shown in about:preferences

Is this a Windows 11 thing, or am I missing a Firefox solution?

A few weeks ago, every time I downloaded an attachment from Gmail, I would tell Firefox where to put the file, but I would always get an extra copy in my Downloads folder that I would have to delete.

About 4 weeks after that (after a Firefox update, I think), Firefox stopped doing this unwanted behavior.

Now (after a recent update, I think), it started doing it again.

Why is it doing this? How do I get it to stop this unwanted behavior?
