I want to get rid of adblock which I installed as an add on.

It doesnt work very well for my browsing needs and is continually getting in the way with selling pleas.

So how to get rid of it ? I do see that I can get a list in firefox of installed add-ins, so why cant I click on a delete delete button alongside the add-ins that I don't want ?

I have Firefox home with a search engine as home page, but since the update to 89, when I try to type into the search box, it jumps to the address bar. This is very annoying. Can it be fixed? I do not want to use the address bar this way. I found a help that said to open the application menu and click "customize" but there is no "customize" option there. In the attached photo, I clicked in the search box to place the cursor there, but as soon as I began typing, it jumped to the address bar. This has never happened to me before in the 15 years I have used Firefox. I am a recent convert to Linux (about 1 year now) and am using Mint 19.3, Cinnamon 4.4.8, if that makes a difference.

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

Hi. When Firefox added the screenshot functionality, it was very useful to me since i didn't have to open snip & sketch every-time I want to take a screenshot. I did notice that the ability to access the screenshot from the address bar was removed and moved to the mouse's right click options instead. I work with Microsoft azure and have to create documents for clients and by default, right clicking doesn't work on azure and some other sites. Because of this, i can't take screenshots using Firefox. Is there a way to put the screenshot option back to the address bar or maybe have it show up in the toolbar options? Thanks.

Hi all,

I use Firefox. On https://www.archivesspace-pi.nl/repositories/11/archival_objects/42349 we want to show the pdf in the browser but, unfortunately, this doesn't work (the downloading of the pdf functions well, by the way). Trying to solve the problem I did download the PDF-reader, but it still does'nt work. (In Chrome and Edge the showing of pdf's is no problem). What do I have to do?

Thanks for the help/advice!

Trying to use the seach box in the centre of the Firefox homepage (google search engine) .. everything I type goes up to the address bar . Tried changing settings - I see there's a search box option in the 'tool bar' which looks to be up at the side of the address bar. cant understand why we need another one as well as the one in the centre.

Also by turning off suggestions and not choosing the 'search box option in the 'tool bar' , the address bar is now only accepting URLs so searching isnt working.

So ..1. Is the search box in the centre no use?

        2.  Does search work with all suggestions turned off?

Also, looking for a hopeful solution without having to add a third Firefox bar. It makes my screen (small laptop) too small.

I'm trying to completely turn off the address search bar function in Firefox. It' so annoying! I go to google. Start to type in the search bar on the page but all my typing ends up in the address bar. So frustrating! If I wanted to search from the address bar I wouldn't have gone to Google to do it. I DON'T want to search from the address bar EVER! So please don't say 'why don't you just..x,y or z'. I've managed to turn off all the address bar suggestions and whatnot with about a dozen different setting which is ridiculous. Turning off the rich results should fix everything but it doesn't. No mater what I try I cannot get text to appear in the Google search bar. So basically Firefox has stolen the functionality of the Google webpage for me. I've been using Firefox for a long time but lately I'm been questioning why a lot. Anyway, any suggestions to stop Firefox from hijacking my search would be appreciated.

This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.
