Possibly a question that has been asked before or could be extracted from the shortcuts page, but wording of the problem probably varies quite a bit.

In the address bar, when I want to go in one click to the first result that is not a search suggestion, is there a way to accomplish that (instead of arrow down for x amount of times)? A subpar alternative would then be to disable search suggestions of course.

Hi There,

I am using Firefox after moving away from chromium based browsers and have noticed some odd behaviour from Firefox build 89.0.2 and would like some help if possible.

The issue is, when typing quickly and i must remove the entirety of my input, i will press CTRL + A to highlight all, and sometimes hit the backspace button quickly and it will only move the cursor to the far left and does not delete the selection.

This is not the only issue with combo shortcuts, i have realised that CTRL + C sometimes will not copy the selection and is causing minor annoyance with using this browser.

If could be user error, however, the same usage on other browsers/windows UI never has this problem, and i am strugling to find information about this online hence the post.

Any information would be greatly apreciated.

TIA Brad

I'm not sure if the two are interlinked, but I 'clear data' every now and again.

However, I've noticed that this time, I was unable to clear the 10kb of data under 'cached web content'. I've tried shutting down and restarting to no avail.

I've eventually resorted to removing the profile folder under App Data, but is there anything I should be concerned about?

To my understanding, the redirection to guce.yahoo.com when trying to log in to my mail isn't malicious. It took me to an error page citing security, but I understand this is expected if ad-blockers are on. I'm set on 'never remember history'.

Is this all just coincidental? Encountering guce and unable to clear cached web content? Anywhere else I need to check / remove?

Hey all.

I've been using firefox for as long as i can remember and it was pretty much always the same, things are in the same locations etc... at least they have been now for the past many years.

I have updates disabled, i have clicked no for the past few times, and today i open firefox and it had updated itself... and just for fun i'm going to repeat myself, i have updates disabled...

The new top tabs are bigger with smaller text now, the "play" and "mute" button that was on the right side is now on the left and you can only see it when you hover the mouse over the tab itself. All that so there can be written "playing" under the name of the tab now. Instead of the "speaker" icon that was to the right of the tab name. Not even 24 hours ago i had it like that. Utterly useless changes. Who comes up with these ideas? It's helping no one! Stop it :)

It's fine that you have to push updates for security reasons etc... But this user interface changing is seriously going to make me stop using firefox. Why can't you just make your updates but let my browser be and look the same as it has always been!?

This is so annoyingly pathetic. I hope you can do something to change this, or at least give us the old theme with smaller top bar, play/mute on the right side as it was before so it's easy to see and find what tab is playing without having the text of the tab become smaller.

This is why i have disabled updates! It's like opening a drawer that always has socks in it for years, and all of sudden there's spoons in that drawer. Why would you change the position of things? What's next, the close firefox at the bottom left corner? Just for fun to mix things up? ;)

So lame guys.

I have been a Mozilla Firefox user for years, today I used CCleaner and since, have not been able to use Firefox as I wish. I downloaded a new Firefox Browser, installed it, was able to use it for a short while, but when I stopped using the computer for a while and came back to it, I can only get Chrome, and cannot get Firefox up and running again...I have even uninstalled Chrome in the control panel, but it is still popping up when I click on my Firefox icon!! Help!! FF is my default browser, has been for years!!

I have tried to attach a screenshot of Google on my computer, it won't let me attach it, no matter where I save it. How do I get them out of my computer? I need help!!

I have tried task manager, 7 instances of Firefox w/0% CPU, No instance of Chrome showing.

I should not have to spend time on the junk. I am stressed and will not spend any more time unless there is a quick fix.

Thanks for any help. Rdh

multiple tabs don't show in 89.0.2

I have had my tabs underneath the bookmare toolbar by use of a css file ever since Firefox moved them up to the top. In the latest updates of Firefox, I have now lost multiple tabs completely. I can only see them if I go into the Troubleshoot mode. I have disabled all hardware acceleration, all other add-ons, and gone to the default theme. The only plug-ins are OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.. They are set to update automatically. When I restart Firefox, it goes back to multiple tabs not appearing.

I am frustrated to the max. As a user who goes way back to Netscape (pre MS Explorer and before even Windows 3.0 days--late 1980s and on), I like being able to customize. I started using Firefox, because Netscape was discontinued, and Firefox was the most like it at that point, and MS Explorer was still pretty new. I liked being able to find things where they were, and I won't apologize for being a creature of habit. I do NOT like Edge or Chrome.

How do I get my Firefox to show all the tabs?

As a realtor, I use a professional software at NavicaMLS.net. When doing a "map search" the map refuses to populate and show the map background. I have not changed any settings. It worked previously and today, it won't work. Cleared all cache. Shut down computer and unplugged for 15 minutes. Restarted computer (desktop Dell) and maps still will not populate. Software works fine in Chrome. I would much rather continue using Firefox. What can I do? Thanks in advance. - Craig -

I am trying to login to a bank website. Before the latest update, this was no problem. Now the website just sits there and nothing is happening. When I use the same login on Safari, the website responds.

I am using an iMac running 10.13 OS. My FF is updated to 89.0.2.

Please respond ASAP, as I need to be able to get into the account fairly regularly.

This seems to be just for Amazon at the moment, but this does not happen on other browsers like Google Chrome.

When I input my password, when I click "login", it changes my password to a long string of encrypted letters, numbers & symbols.

This is just annoying at this point, but, yeah. If anyone has a way to get around this, or disable it somehow, I would be very interested. Thank you!
