I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

v92

This issue started happening only after v92 self-installed, as far as I can tell.

When I start typing in the address bar, even one letter, websites I frequently visit immediately autocomplete. I do NOT have these websites as saved bookmarks. I have cleared history within Firefox, with CCleaner, and with Privazer, but doing so does not affect this behavior. (CCleaner and Privazer also clear everything else, as far as I can tell.)

In Settings, under "Address Bar > When using the address bar, suggest", I have Bookmarks checked. If I uncheck Bookmarks, the behavior stops. BUT AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE THESE SITES BOOKMARKED.

I did a search in C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla for files containing the web addresses and found that they are contained in a filed called SiteSecurityServiceState.txt in one of Profiles (not the current one as far as I can tell). I don't know if this is relevant. And when I alter the web address in this file (e.g., change abc.com to axxbc.com) and save the file, the auto-complete behavior doesn't change.

Finally, I have an Excel file with hyperlinks to my favorite news and blog sites, which I use frequently. These are the same sites that are auto-completing. But if I delete this file, the behavior still occurs. I don't know how the existence of such a file could cause the behavior, but I thought I'd mention it.

Anyway, does anyone know where these addresses could be coming from or stored? Thanks.

How can I define the Google (gmail.com) account that opens when I enter "gmail.com" in the search bar? The "donaldwilliams@gisthailand.org" is defunct; I cannot delete it. Yet Firefox defaults to that account.

How to change the default account?

This does not occur in Safari.

Greetings. I had to compose this using the Notes app on my Samsung S9+ because when I type into a "comments" box and select a word based on a partial spelling the word fails to appear. There is a brief flash of something but nothing sticks unless I fully type each word and not select the word from the choices offered. This does not happen if I use the Samsung browser. Very frustrating. Best wishes to you all. Take care. Sincerely, Terry

I have a dell xps 7390 2-in-1 one laptop loaded with Pop_os 21.04. (Linux) and vanilla firefox with no extensions installed.

The laptop is touch screen.

When I tap the address bar at the top, the onscreen keyboard opens up. i am able to type into the address bar. Hitting the enter key on the onscreen keyboard does nothing. I have to tap the little go icon.

If I repeat this activity using the mouse and keyboard. hitting the enter button works fine.

Firefox has my sign-in to AKC.org account is temporarily (not so temporary!) locked out. Chrome (yuck!) works, but I don't want to have anything to do with Chrome. How can this be fixed? I have spent a lot of time with AKC support, and we've tried a lot of things including setting up a whole new account with a different email. What is the Firefox problem, and how can I work with or around it. Can Firefox do something about this?

I am looking for the last version of Firefox that allows plugins. I have several older Foscam IP cameras and they work best with the browser plugin. However, Firefox doesn't allow this anymore and I really don't like any of the viewer clients. What I would like to do is download a portable version and possibly run it in a virtual machine so I can still use the latest version on the same machine. But this would allow me to use the old plugins and view my cameras.

Any ideas? Many thanks! Randall

Firefox is suddenly not allowing me to download through my AOL Mail program, this has only just started to happen, I have used AOL Mail for many years without any problems, and I am at a loss as to why it is suddenly "Unsafe" I have no intention of changing my Email supplier, since my email address has always remained the same. How can I stop this from happening? If I tell it to ingore the message and connect anyway I simply get an error message. This is causing me SERIOUS problems, so any help will be much appreciated.

I have had a single Firefox Account since 2018. I have updated through three primary email addresses: let's call them 1, 2 & 3.

July 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 2, and removed primary email 1.

August 2020 - I registered for Firefox Monitor. I added many "another email" (the maximum number, 10 I think) to be monitored : let's call them emails 4-13, and set "Send breach alerts to the affected email address".

December 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 3, and email 2 is my account secondary email.

April 2021 - I received an email to email 4 saying it was in a breach.

Today - on monitor.firefox.com it says I am not monitoring any emails except my primary email 3, and have not been in any breaches as pictured.

Therefore, there is a bug with monitor.firefox.com: - On the one hand, email 4 (and presumably 5-13) are all still being monitored. - But on the other hand, monitor.firefox.com states I am not monitoring any other emails.

Could a Mozilla dev please get in touch to look into this specific case?

A previous thread on the support website has an incorrect answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288732

The responses may have been correct at the time, but there is an easy solution to this problem now. However, the thread has been archived so no new responses are allowed. The problem is a Google search (as well as other search engines and even a support.mozilla search) pops up this archived, incorrect response first. In some searches, a correct response cannot be found on the first page of search results.

It would be nice if there was a way to unarchive older questions to add a new answer to inaccurate or dated info.
