So i own an Android Phone and i use DuckDuckGo search engine on PC. I just got this adversting from duck asking me to install their extension on android. So why is this important, well obviously they directly tell me they know i own an android phone. Otherwise they would have sayd it this way; extension for mobile phones now available, or duckduckgo now available for iphones. The only other possibility would be if this is a new feature that is in general displayed to everyone, but i dont beleve this is the case because an iphone owner wouldnt care about an android extension. This is wired, is it not?

If I do a Bing Image Search, disable "Safe Search" and then repeat the same search, "Safe Search" is re-enabled. The same occurs if I Refresh the page. I've tried the following to resolve it:

1) Delete all cookies and site data for Bing. 2) Disable Enhanced Tracking Protection for Bing. 3) Add exceptions for Bing to all adblocker add-ons. 4) Using Bing while logged out of my Microsoft account.

Problem begun after the update to Firefox 95 or 96.

I rarely update Firefox because something always breaks. Today I upgraded from v60 to v72.0.1 - and something broke

I'll probably get the names of these things wrong, but with my older version, I typed the url that I am looking for in the "address bar" and everything worked great.

But now with v72, when I start typing in the address bar, I get a big blue bar at the top of the page with a little google icon in it that says "search with google". The characters that I type in the address bar are echoed in the blue bar that has appeared.

In Options / Search I have:

     the radio button selected for "use the address bar for search and navigation"
     google is my default, and oniy search engine
     I have unchecked Provide Search Suggestions
     I have no "one-click search engines" selected
     

I do not want this blue drop down bar. Not ever. How do I get rid of this drop down thing? I also have a new annoying little "Whats New" icon in my tool bar, and I don't see how to get rid of that either?

Thanks

I don't need it. I don't want it. If I want to zoom in, I will use the option, to do so. I will NEVER use pinch/zoom on my laptop and it is a harrowing experience with everything I do when online. Even while writing this and trying to scroll, it zooms.

Please do not tell me to disable it in Windows. I use an external keyboard and Windows ̶r̶e̶f̶u̶s̶e̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶e̶r̶ doesn't have that option for an external keyboard.

This is actually a rather entertaining issue really. So, what is happening as you can see in the screenshot I shared that Firefox is using a rather flamboyant font I'm not familiar with actually. This seems to happen exclusively within text-boxes on forums where you have control over the font used. This text box, for instance, does not have the effect.

    I have had this happen on a few sites now, and have nailed it down specifically at this point.  It's always a text box, and only those which allow you to change the font characteristics and style.  Without the ability to change font, it uses the fonts from my settings.  Yet, weirdly any time that I get a text box with options?  Same garish font rears its ugly head!  lol.
