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.

I am up to date with my Firefox.

I find that sometimes (Easyjet booking forms for example) or recently a .pdf letter from a reputable sourcecan't be opened in Firefox, I need to use Edge for instance, and I don't like being brow beaten by Microsoft. What's to be done?

Recently I have been seeing, what I believe is character encoding errors on many web sites.

As you can see from the attached, it appears as a series of 'ddddddddddd' but if I copy and paste that into Word or a text editor it appears correctly. Kinda random, some sites, some areas.

My Firefox automatically updates, so I do not know what version this started.

Using Firefox, I cannot look at the reviews on Costco.com; using Chrome, no problem. Recent problem. I want Firefox, NOT Chrome.

Similar, but perhaps unrelated: On MSN.com, I find videos offered by CNN. The present video never finishes loading and I canot watch it. If I skip that, I will see the next ad, and then the next video will run. A bit frustrating because I can never see the video that caught my eye in the first place. (I cannot get back to it.)

Thanks for reading; thanks for any suggestions.

Hi, To start with I love your browser been using and recommending it for many years. I am a service provider and have a customer that started getting this in her Firefox browser. Started a few weeks ago. Hard to describe the attachment will show more. There is a image box link. No image shows in any of them but clicked on it does go to the url. The url address is right after it. They are partially imposed over part of the description of the web site. Now my Firefox browser on my machine does not look like this. Is this a setting I need to disable to return it to normal and remove this little image box at the beginning? Or is there a problem with the browser? Thank you for your time and help. SEBassman

I got a new phone recently, and need permission to move my Firefox data onto it. Seems like the only way to do that is to contact you (and I can't figure out how to do that directly, so I'm making a post).

Imagine my surprise when, of a sudden, external apps just...quit working. I've checked relentlessly to make sure Settings have the file type, say ".TXT", and the app, say, Notepad.exe. Simple, right? Sadly, not anymore. The thing just wipes a shade across the Tab title, and...nothing. I actually had to install Google to make sure it wasn't me. Google works flawlessly. You click the text file, notepad launches, and I see the downloaded text in Notepad. With the "new" Firefox, you click the text file link, and you get...nothing. Well, a blue shade does cross the current Tab, but that's it.

Why has Firefox quit processing external apps?

I'll keep Firefox installed for now, but really, folks. What gives?

Thanks for anyone's kind attention.

I'll check back. Some time. I guess.

For now, I'm stuck with Google.

And really, this form of "Help" and "Reporting" leaves a lot to be desired. I have the sinking feeling I'm now stuck with Google for good.

I cannot like or dislike comments on the fox news website like I used to. Not only that, it's as if I've never accessed that website before. Everytime I restart the browser I need to re-login to the windsor star website. This never happened before I can give details on how to replicate this problem. Otherwise I will drop this browser, bcause I can't get any help. Already tried all troubleshooting steps. I also disabled my internet security. I need help!! Please. None of my settings have been changed, all I did was update FF.

David, there was new login to your account

xxxxx@gmail.com

Firefox 91.0 on Win10 Sep 15 at 9:40 AM (America/New_York) United States If you don't recognize this activity, review your recently used devices

This has resulted in big arguments with AV support and others who keep sending me Windows installers, for example. I finally learned just to use Safari, but this is bewildering and I haven't found an explanation or solution anywhere.

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.
