I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!

I updated my Firefox today and now videos do not play.

I had this problem back in April after an update and I spent weeks troubleshooting it. Eventually I got it to work after trying all of the following (then, and again now):

Things I've Tried: 1.) Clearing data (cache and cookies) 2.) Turning off "Strict Mode" 3.) Running CCleaner 4.) Disabling/enabling HW acceleration 5.) Checking that the DRM box is checked (and trying it without it checked) 6.) Refreshing Firefox 7.) Uninstalling/Reinstalling 8.) Updating my Windows install 9.) Updating drivers 10.) Disabling all Firefox extensions 11.) Running without extensions 12.) Running in Firefox Troubleshooting Mode 13.) Running Windows in Safe Mode with Networking 14.) Running a fresh install of Firefox without signing in after deleting all traces of Firefox from my PC (including Program Data folders, registry entries, etc.)

What finally worked back in April was to dive into "about:config" and change "media.rdd-processenable" to "false".

That fix does not work this time around.

In the meantime I've been using Brave and having no issues. I've tried video playback in Chrome, Opera, and Edge on this computer with no issues. This playback problem is exclusive to Firefox.

Video playback still works just fine on my 4 home PCs running Windows 10 and Pop_OS (3 self-built, one Asus laptop) using this same build of Firefox.

Other/Rant: I suspect this is a Firefox/Windows 11 problem. Most likely this is not something I can fix myself, but it's incredibly frustrating since I'm buried deep in the Mozilla ecosystem and use it for work. I'd prefer not to have to swap between browsers just so I can watch videos; too many windows open on this tiny work laptop isn't fun to juggle. Basic video playback is the #1 thing I use my web browser for at both work and home so it'd be nice if this irritating, months-long, unacceptable issue were resolved. A modern browser that has video playback issues? What good is it then? What's most irritating is that it seems I'm the one of a very small number of users with this issue, since I see very little posted about it online.

I've been a Firefox user primarily for almost half a decade now - moved over from Chrome for privacy issues. Never had a problem until 4/22 of this year and considering it's still an issue 3 months later... it has me re-evaluating the reliability and my commitment to an otherwise amazing browser.

Hi - I work from home and for the past few years have used Firefox as my preferred browser, with bookmarks and passwords all saved to my account.

My employer uses "Duo" authentication to sign into applications.

This used to work with Firefox but not it has stopped working. I get prompted to sign in but my details are recognised and it just keeps asking me to sign in. When I neter them the browser keeps balnking them out.

This works on Chrome so I know it must be something to do with Firefox.

I really don't want to change browsers but if this ca't be resolved I'll have to stop using Firefox and delete it.

Under Windows 10, the Windows taskbar showed Firefox open windows. After migrating to Windows 11, the Windows taskbar shows all tabs opened, without grouping them by window.

I read this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1222298

but the suggested fix isn't shown in about:preferences

Is this a Windows 11 thing, or am I missing a Firefox solution?

I've been using Firefox as my preferred browser for almost as long as it has been available. And I keep it right up to date.

Right now, it's having problems establishing secure connections to very common web sites like https://Google.ca, and https://www.theguardian.com/uk. The former seems to work intermittently, and Google.com always seems to work. Web sites for some major international retailers like Home Depot were also nonfunctional a few weeks ago, but seem to be more consistent now.

Microsoft Edge has no problems displaying any of these web sites on the same computer. And I've been using it more and more recently. This is annoying since I have all of my bookmarks in Firefox.

I have gone through all of the Firefox settings looking for adjustments which might help, but none of the ones I tested made any difference.

I really hope you can help because this problem is costing me a lot of extra time. If I'm forced to switch to another browser, it's unlikely that I'll ever come back to Firefox.

After the last update to Firefox I keep getting access denied on some websites for example Lowes.com. I saw where to check security and mine is set to standard, so no joy there. I'm not a computer savvy person but I can manage with the direction and input. That being said, what can I do to fix this. I've always used Firefox but lately had to use Edge or Chrome, not my first choice. So what changed in Firefox to cause this issue as I see on your message board for several people?

When you reply, how do I know you did without me checking constantly? Do you send an email through Thunderbird to notify?

Hello,

The past few weeks I have run into the issue where Soundcloud fails to load and returns an error. This is circumvented multiple ways. Either I open soundcloud in incognito mode and it works fine, or I clear the cache in normal mode. BUT in the second option soundcloud only works during the first visit.

I found a previous question asked here detailing the same exact issue but nobody found a solution that worked. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346767

Other info I think would be useful: Soundcloud works on my laptop running the same exact profile for firefox. Hinting to me that something else on my computer is in the way.

Deleting all history, cookies, cache, extensions; has not helped

I have attached the images below just as the previous poster has. Including the console log filled with errors.

Hopefully someone can help with this headache!
