When I type something on the address bar all the suggestions get jammed up with title text overlaying the URL. This was not happening until 2 or 3 updates ago.

I have tried disabling all addons, the text moves a bit but still impossible to read. I have tried disabling Win10 Typing suggestions/autocomplete, nothing changed.

It use to be after sizing the URL and Search to be even lengths, and then in Customize placing the Reload icon between them, the 2 windows would remain relatively the same length. Now, however when completing the steps the Search window is reduced considerably (see attached). How to get the URL and Search portions more or less equal?

Firefox makes it way too hard to find this 'ask a Q' page.

I began using Firefox Color & made a theme. Now I cannot change it. I went back to Firefox Color, selected the theme I made & deleted it but every time I open Firefox that theme comes back. I want to use—and make stick—the theme I have collected in Add-ons. How do I get rid of that annoying theme made on Firefox Color. (No, the new annoying theme does not show up in Settings >> Themes.)

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

There are four alternative options in the dropdown for Enhanced Tracking Protection>Cookies:

  1. 1. Cross-site and social media trackers
  2. 2. Cookies from unvisited web sites
  3. 3. All third party cookies
  4. 4. All cookies

My question: Are these listed in order of scope, meaning more powerful and comprehensive options as one reads down the list? If "yes", then: What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #1 above to #2? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #2 to #3? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #3 to #4? Answers to the above would be helpful in deciding which level of blocking to choose.

I clicked on the Private Network icon when FF loaded, before I got the prompt to input my master password. After I input my master password FF crashed. After restarting FF, Now Private Network is asking me to "Login to FF account" when I click on the already dimmed Private network account. But, I'm already logged in. Also, When I enter my user/pass on the prompt to login again, I get a alert to check email and put the code in... That code never works(see attached screenshot). I get a red alert bar on the email code screen that there is a security issue.

So is there a timeout for such a issue? or ?
