Hi everyone,

When I check my email, i have a tendency to just type in "gmail" and then search directly from the search bar. For some reason Firefox decided to give me an option to "add http://" to the beginning of my search term to 'make it easier'

Problem is now it just puts in http://gmail/ which causes issues as it doesn't add .com and I can't find the option to remove this from my search bar or bookmarks. I've reset and cleared the history and everything, and can't find this option. I'd like to just disable it outright, as all it's done is cause a headache.

Attached is the autocomplete filling in the first entry, which I cannot find a way to remove it. I realy like firefox and know there's a way to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!

I have a ton of tabs open on my iphone and was looking for an easy way to clean them up. I have everything synced up between my macbook and my iphone. Is there a way to close tabs on my iphone from my macbook? Going through all of the sidebar tabs on a big screen is so much quicker but I'm not seeing a way to close tabs across all devices. Any advice would be great. If this isn't possible, this would be a great feature to have added to firefox. Thanks.

I recently switched from chrome to firefox. Normally I receive notifications of texts/imessages and calls in the top right corner of my screen even when I am watching videos in full screen; however, after switching to firefox I have noticed that sometimes I do not receive the notifications if I am in full screen video mode. This is causing me to miss some important messages. Is there a way to ensure that notifications such as imessages display even while watching videos in full screen?

I do not get the speed I should which is 150Mbs since mid April this year I was gettin the speed before Then i changed to chrome and when I test the speed is 185 Mbs everytime.

Did something change in Firefox today? I tried to let Firefox save a password and user name for Ask LibreOffice and when I tried to log in the password failed and I had to reset it.This happened again just now. (LibreOffice again). Firefox used to mess up in this way but that was ages ago. Everything has worked beautifully until today. Thank you!

So for example, I have https://open.spotify.com/collection/tracks bookmarked. Pretty much every time I want to open that link, whether from top sites in a new tab or if I search that bookmark from the URL and click it, nothing happens. It will, however, work the second time I click it. It seems like really odd behavior.

Two degrees of full screen mode

Using 78.0.1 on Windows 10, when I press F11 to get full screen in Youtube TV, it works, but it leaves a thin grey line at the very top of my screen (1280x800 resolution showing 1280/720 YTTV), and mousing over it drops down the Firefox tab and URL bars. That's "Full Screen Level 1". Using --kiosk prevents the dropdowns, but it doesn't get rid of the line.

If I play some video and mouse over the Firefox window while it's in Level 1 and not displaying any UI, a full screen icon appears in the upper right. Clicking it gets rid of the gray line and briefly shows the message, "youtube.com is now full screen." Now, mousing over the top middle of the screen displays that message instead of the Firefox UI. That's "Full Screen Level 2."

When I start Firefox, it remembers Level 1, but not Level 2, and the only way I see to get Level 2 is to click on the icon. I want Level 2 all the time for this profile, which I use on a small secondary monitor, and only for YTTV.

Any ideas?

Fingers crossed - I may have solved this problem by completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. The problem: Every time I opened Firefox, the Safe Access app on my Synology RT2600ac router would send an alert to say that it had blocked a connection to vice.com. I've never visted that website, so I have no idea why Firefox would keep triggering an alert from my router. Has anyone any idea what might have cause this?

I am a long time user of FF but since the last updates the home page setting in options does not save or work. Keeps giving me a blank page. If I use the home icon on the tool bar, it is correct but on start up, only a blank even though it set for something else. Seems odd that it won't work correctly on startup.
