When I wan't to use add-ons in Firefox for Mac, they just don't work. I can install them but they do not open. I have tried re-installing Firefox, installing the Firefox Beta (which supports Apple Silicon but crashed a lot) and restarting my computer, as well as re-installing the Add-Ons. Nothing works. How can I fix this?

I am unable to get the 'recommended by Pocket' panel to appear in new tabs with my normal user Firefox profile (Firefox account sign-in) on Mac Catalina. When I go to about:preferences#home the option simply is not present.

I created a new user login on my mac to access banking and other financials. This uses a separate Firefox profile (including new Firefox account sign-in and email), and the 'recomended by Pocket' panel is present.

The panel is present on new tabs opened for my normal Firefox account sign-in on my iOS (iPhone) Firefox install.

The about:config settings searching for 'pocket' appear to be the defaults, and match the settings in the financials account.

I have tried in 'safe mode' (add-ons disabled) and have done a Firefox 'refresh', however my add-ons (and presumably everything else) were restored when I signed back into my normal Firefox user account.

Hovering over the Pocket icon in the address bar displays 'save to Pocket', implying to me that it has signed me into Pocket. I've signed in at getpocket.com. New Firefox profiles without signing in do not show 'recommended by Pocket' in either new tabs or the about:preferences#home configuration page, but I expect the functionality requires being signed in to a Firefox account.

Help or suggestions much appreciated.

Plainly speaking, I don't like the new address bar, how it auto completes my searches or the results it pulls. I didn't like it when it was defaulted to being on starting with version 75 but I was able to easily switch a few setting in about:config to fix it. Those settings no longer affect the address bar as of update 77.

The settings I had changed were:

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

which were all set to false. I saw that setting "browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests" to "true" might be the solution but, while it does stop the address bar from expanding when using it, it also stops it from expanding at all so the websites that would come up from searching can no longer be seen either (they are still called and using the down arrow will let me scroll through the results, I just can't see any of them). It also doesn't fix the results issue which I would say is the most important.

I would like to know what I need to do so that: 1. The results it shows me are no longer based on frequent visit (basically, the pre-update search system, as is they are scattered and look messy, pulling many different sites in a seemingly random order and it's not particularly useful) 2. It no longer autocompletes results (IE. "F" autocompleting to "facebook.com", this is always something that has bothered me regardless is context) 3. It no longer pops out/expands when in use (admittedly this is mostly an aesthetic issue but I still don't like how it looks)

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

Even though I'm in the UK I was previously able to use the form auto fill function by changing the extensions.formautofill.available preference from "detect" to "on" however I updated to Firefox 83.0 and it reverted to "detect" and I am now unable to save any changes to it becasue it has always reverted to "detect" when I restart Firefox.

Form auto fill is such a simple and useful function that really needs to be available, Chrome has had it working for years.

So I've recently updated to v83 and find out that that annoying address bar is back. I don't really want to use Chrome.css because I'm not good at programming or anything like that and I am afraid I might break my browser.

I have the solutions for v77 on my about:config and tried toggling them true/false and restarting my computer but I think Firefox "fixed" those workarounds.

Anybody have any new suggestions? Or am I stuck with this (I wouldn't mind it so much but it goes to it automatically when I open a new tab and that annoys me. I'm happy the history part of the workaround is still working cause I do NOT want anyone knowing my history. That's my business not theirs).

I've tried:

  • checking that Firefox is not installed from a snap
