I've always had the adress bar set to do a Google search of whatever I wrote in there, with the actual sarch bar being used for Wikipedia, but for some time now the adress bar has been doing Wikipedia searches. I've tried changing keyword.URL in about:config and even restoring Firefox to default settings, but nothing worked. Any ideas?

With FF 23 searching in the location bar performs a search with the currently selected engine in the search bar. I find the behaviour annoying, as I sometimes select different engines in the search bar if needed, but most often I just need quick google searches that I perform from the location bar wihout need to change the search engine.

Is there a way to customise the behaviour, so that the search in the location bar points always to one engine, independently from the engine that is selected in the search bar?

>jsb http://url works

>jsb http://url 4 gives a "Available Options, Too many arguments" tooltip like window

There is a blue [options] after the http://url, probably indication I should add my options here. But either I can't get the syntax right, or it is buggy.

How do I enter the options shown by "help jsb" on the gcli?

Windows 7 - Firefox 22-23 (maybe earlier version too)

If you mistype the answer, firefox will refresh the page with new characters, but in the process, will lose the offending URL.

i.e. 1st time url="http:/domain.com/phishingsite" txt="mistype(123)" enter="msitype(123)"

2nd time url="" txt="betterluckthistime"

I report 20-30 phishing sites a day, so every mistype costs me dearly in time and process flow!! Thank you.

Firefox is my default internet. IGoogle is my home page. I have XPWindows. I recently had Firefox put in and use that as my default internet connection. When I click on a web page, it does not fill my screen - there's anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of white on each side of the web page. With my old default page, it filled the entire screen. How do I make it fill the whole screen?

locking as a duplicate, please continue here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/968545

Between last night and tonight, suddenly I can't load any pages unless I flip back and forth between I.E Tabs. Only difference: Firefox did a bloody update. Why is it that nowadays when a program updates, it always ends up being glitchy or fails entirely. Aren't updates supposed to IMPROVE the program, not break what was already working?

This problem happens on Facebook, twitter, Goodreads, Google, this page... everything. What is the use of having a browser that doesn't work. Come on Mozilla. Please let me roll back to 22. At least that worked. Sorry for the grump here, but I've truly had enough of programs self-"updating" into a version that is crap. With all that programmers have learnt over years of computing, this should not happen any more. If you're going to put out an "update", at least make sure it works fully first. We're not your lab rats for testing.

I've already restarted twice, and once more in safe mode, so please no one give me all the basic advice. Just someone tell the blokes at Mozilla that their update is broken, and they need to patch it. Meanwhile, I'll just run my business loading pages twice in two different browser tabs... or, after more than six years and twenty different version numbers, I might just drop Firefox altogether.

And you know what, I can't even add my Troubleshooting info from the button below. Guess why? That's broken too. As is the button to enter this form.

A site I'm using (drupal.org) recently switched from HTTP to HTTPS URLs. I wanted to update my bookmarks and history entries to reflect the change (so the Awesome Bar would suggest the right scheme, instead of needing a redirect). Therefore, I removed one bookmark (http://drupal.org/project/search_api), also deleted the page from the suggestions (typed a few characters, selected the suggestion and pressed DEL – it took multiple tries until Firefox didn't suggest it anymore, though) and then visited the URL with the HTTPS scheme and bookmarked that instead.

However, now Firefox never suggests either of these anymore, neither with HTTP nor with HTTPS. When I visit the HTTPS page, it correctly shows me that it's bookmarked, but the Awesome Bar just doesn't suggest it anymore, no matter what I try.

What could possibly cause this, and how can I fix it?

(PS: Troubleshooter inserted data into the Troubleshooting information which exceeded the character limit. I therefore removed all entries starting with "print.", since I figured they'd probably be irrelevant (and were also over 800).)

This morning Firefox did an update, or something, and it changed the look for the toolbars. It added a new tab, and a plus sign. I made sure that none of the "tab" options were checked in the options, none are. I downloaded an old version, removed the new version, then reloaded with the old. I did this with two older versions. I don't want anything on the top left that has anything to do with tabs. It wasn't there before this morning.
