d/l an HP update (my computer & printer)& my blank screen has been replaced with pics from Bing (my preferred browser). it also screwed up a few other things but i mostly fixed them. went into about:config, found blank screen, set it to true but every time i go into a new tab, those stupid pics come back & not my blank screen. its been too long since i did anything in about:config & just can't remember how to fix this.

oh yeah, it took out the stuff at the top of my screen like cut, copy, paste & when i put printer back, it is faded out & will no longer work.

Help!

Never had this before. I opened firefox this morning and restored the old tabs as I usually do every morning. They all opened up (e.f. tab with the correct title) but the address is empty and nothing loads.

Attempted in order: - open a new tab, would not even load google, simply a white page - same action on new window, same result - refreshed firefox= nothing - uninstalled firefox = no luck - removed the apps I installed in the last days (visual studio code) - installed firefox from scratch (no account sync) 82.0 (64-bit) nothing at all. Same result see image in attachment.

I also have: removed all cookies/cache (refresh would do any ways), scanned my computer for viruses (nothing found). It doesn't open the options from the menu, it doesn't show anything under about:config

Windows 10 2004

In 15 years I'm using FIrefox I have never seen anything like this :-o

I still get some POPUPS. I have option "BLOCK POPUPS..." in Firefox checked. On one adult website, using Firefox, it displays a "popup" and when you respond to either question, is open another adult website in a new tab. I tried the website on MS EDGE and it popups up but functions properly and by answering, it disappears. I tried GOOGLE CHROME and it responds the same as MS EDGE. So the problem must be with FIREFOX. Anyone?

I've been using Firefox for years. The other day I tried to open and got a message that it could not be opened and to download again. Did that and all my files are gone. All my documents, scans etc. Saw a message during download that all that info is in a previous installation but there were no instructions on how to access them or reclaim. I am desperate. Please help.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

Search engine shortcuts in address bar

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

My Firefox privacy preferences tell me that "stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 1.0 GB of disk space", but when I click on "Manage Data", no sites are listed. I have also always had the "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checked. What then explains the 1.0 GB of disk space?

Thanks.
