I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

When I try to connect to the site for my internet provider, I am connected to the companies site for businesses. Ii have tried my cell (OK), my laptop (OK), and Safari (OK). so it looks like FireFox has become confused about the site meant to be accessed by that URL. Suggestions on how to reteach FireFox, please.

Every time I restart my up-to-date Firefox I must dismiss a pop-up nagging me to update Firefox. I would like to know when an update is really available, but these nags otherwise are counter-productive. How can I stop them? (I use the release channel.)

FBI's suggestion was to start with an IC3 Complaint. I forgot to tell you. They tried to erased the almost 100GB of evidence I have including the 18GB of devastating evidence against them. Well they infected 3 hardware devices I own hoping that I would insert the flash drives with the evidence in the computer and then they can wipe them clean. I lost 75GB but recovered 52GB from a back up scheme I had. Most important: Now I have them in the act of setting up their trap in my computer, plus I have 3 hardware devices infected with their code. One is a USB type A to USB type C adapter by Belkin. they know the whole thing. I spoke to their security all the way to their corporate offices. As you know they're also a defense contractor. The 2nd device is a 3.3 USB reader by SanDisk (Western Digital). I started telling them until they blocked me. So they only know their device was modify to do evil. But I didn't have time to tell them that 2 additional devices suffered the same thing. So, SanDisk thinks they are the only company. The 3rd device is from Kingston it's 3.0 USB card reader but but the time I finished with SanDisk I couldn't communicate with Kingston. Unless the security force from Belkin told them, they are unaware that their device was used for nefarious purposes by MS and GGL (But attempt to abbreviate.) Bottom line I have the dramatic footage of 18GB and 3 hardware devices. of their code. I hope these info gets to you. I have to take a tiny break. I'm sending you these so it won't disappear, And additional items in 45 minutes at the latest. As always, Thank you

I went to update this morning when asked and then got the "profile missing" error pop up. I searched for the folder as advised but its no longer in my library folder.

Any suggestions? I really need the info in firefox and would not have even updated if i knew this was even thought of happening.

Also, tried to download and install firefox again and still get the same error..

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

I've noticed that every now and then I come across a website that doesn't function properly. For instance, right now when I try to browse https://www.parts-express.com/ the page will load, but when I try to view things by clicking on the menu, it will stay on the same page. I've had to use another browser to search this site.

Another thing I've come across is paying for things. A few times already I've tried to make a purchase and it would not go through. I called one of the places and they said it was because I was using Firefox. The payments went through when using a different browser.

Is this common? Is there something I can do to make Firefox work universally?
