My Firefox updated to 67.0.1. Now when I type something into my search bar it shows up as results in the address bar. I DO NOT WANT THIS. I used to be able to have typed my favorite websites into the address bar and basically saved them there so I could just drop down and go to a specific site. Now that is gone and all these search results are there. I WANT MY FIREFOX BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS. I don't understand why your company thinks this is a good thing. If there is no way to change this problem them I am going to remove Firefox from my computer and go with a different web browser.

Hiya, I would appreciate help in finding the certificate I have downloaded from the FNMT website in Spain - it is to enable me to have a digital signature on the system in Spain and I have followed all their instructions - they say the certificate has been downloaded correctly. Trouble is, I can't find it! They tell me to open Firefox (it's already open), choose "Menú, Opciones, Avanzado, Certificados, Ver Certificados (Menu, Options, Advanced, Certificates, See Certificates). I cannot find where "Menú" is to start this series of choices - I've looked on Preferences and anywhere else I could to no avail. Could anyone help me, please? Many thanks, Anna

I recently updated the newest Firefox version, at least I think so. I watched the Video about creating and accessing bookmarks. Before the latest version I created many folders and placed websites of many non-profit organizations and other arts resources. Now, when I click the star the follow occurs: Star turns blue and moves to clip board? icon. First option: View bookmark side bar; Second: Show All Bookmarks; Third: View Pocket List (I don't use Pocket); Forth: Bookmarks Toolbar; Fifth: Other Bookmarks; Sixth: Show all Bookmarks. These are fewer options than listed on the Firefox bookmarks video. When I click: Show all Bookmarks a grey and white empty box appears with the the top title Library. When I click Show All Bookmarks, nothing occurs. What's also odd is that when I bring up a website like nypl.org the star turns blue. But I can't find that bookmark, only listed, without a name, of 157

Okay so I have a few problems with Firefox. I usually have problems with my browsers but this one has not fixed any of the problems I had before so I decided to bring them up now. I have reinstalled Firefox before and the problems still occur. I do not really want to install it again because I have around 31 extensions and 17 scripts. I have tried this on a fresh install and decided to ignore it but it's becoming more and more of a problem.

1. History, so when I put the settings to not put my history on the search bar it ignores the clicked setting no matter how many times I click and un-click it, so I made it so it would not save my history. That worked but it would not save my passwords, I have a account that I have to accept on my phone. And another where I have to get a special code. This is incontinent and does not give me options to change what it remembers and what it doesn't. Also when I turned it off it actually did remember all of my passwords and accounts.

2. Videos, I had a problem with this back in 2013, 15, and 16 and it still happens. If I Maximize the window it starts to tear the video but if I go minimized it is fine, and if I full screen it is also fine.

3. Firefox account this one I just don't like it being on as soon as I login.

4. I've removed all the "One-Click Search Engines" I don't want and they keep coming back.

5. Some file types (even though I have the downloader option saved to ask me where to save) just save to some random folder in %appdata% that I can't actually get into said folder by normal means. So if I close the browser it just removes it because it's not in the Downloads folder its in a hidden folder that is hidden in other folders.

6. It saves all the search options in different websites excluding google because they have their own bad problems with google accounts.

Now my question is, are these issues they plan to fix or is there a way I can fix any of these?

The last couple of months I have not been able to use my Outlook and send emails or save drafts. I have gone to outlook support but since it still works with Chrome and IE they say its firefox's issue and have no other help for me. I've cleared cache and history. extensions etc.. So I am coming to you now. I do have a VPN but outlook still won't work with it not on. So I am at a loss as to what to do. I don't like chrome nor IE and I've always had firefox and I want to continue that. I was still able to send emails when I first got the VPN so Im not sure what it is except very, very annoying. The same is for my laptop and that does not have the VPN.

Fixing tab thumbnails limitations

With "browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder" enabled (ie set to True) I see only 6 thumbnails and they are pretty huge, filling the width of my 1920 x 945 screen. Being able to preview just six thumbnails is really unhelpful. Is this expected Fx behaviour?

If this is "expected" does anyone know a way the user might controI this? Via userChrome (css) perhaps? Ideally this would entail a way to reduce the size of each image, show more than one row and Ctrl+Tab through *all* open tabs (or a user-defined number) instead of only six. Obviously (in the current one-row regime) when tab #7 is previewed, tab #1 would disappear.

Fx Quantum v64.0 (Developer edition) Windows 7

TIA

EVERY time I run Firefox it tells me an update is available and asks to update. However, updates to firefox are handled through an external package manager so there is no reason for it to keep harassing me. Up until v.63 this was not a problem as I simply clicked "never check for updates" and let the package manager handle it - as it should. Now some bozo has decided to remove that and try to force an update that will completely screw up my package manager. WTF Mozilla! Are you trying to decrease your user base? Give us back the option to control our updates!

Greetings All, Have Googled this to no avail. Win 7 Home Premium SP1. When trying to access any site on FF (Ver. 62.0.3) getting error


Unexpected response from server

Firefox doesn’t know how to communicate with the server.

   Check to make sure your system has the Personal Security Manager installed.
   This might be due to a non-standard configuration on the server.


Internet explorer working fine on this computer. Have tried "Refresh Firefox" and "Restart with add-ons disabled" In their troubleshooting wizard. I Have to avoid un-install - re-install as I am trying to help an elderly neighbor and she does not have ANY ! of her passwords written down. Any thoughts suggestions greatly appreciated. Cheers !

What moron decided that the description field in bookmark properties should not be visable or editable. This is the primary reason I've used FF. Thanks.

I'd like to know why someone was allowed to authorize the removal of the ability to see and edit the description field in the bookmark properties. I'd like to know why that person is still employed at Mozilla if they still are.

I'd like to know why this kind of change wasn't discussed with the users.

I'd like Mozilla to know that this is probably the most unpopular brain dead move you've made in quite some time, it is despised by power users. The information is there, allowing it to be displayed an edited is child's play.

These fields are the primary reason why many people use FF instead of Chrome. You've removed that reason. Kind of a dumb move, isn't it?

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?
