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!

Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit) doesn't play YouTube videso in Private Window. The same videso play in s statdrad new window. Try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fiVciCs8zU which ironically won't play in private! Every time you press the play button you get about half a second of play before pausing. In standard mode it plays just fine.

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.

Why on earth would you want the history pane to automatically scroll to the very top after clicking on a result??

And no, I am not opening links in a private window.

This is a stupid design flaw that no other browser has, FIX IT MOZILLA.

I transferred data from an old profile into a new one as instructed here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile I did get my tabs, bookmarks and saved logins transferred, but every website I visit asks me about cookies as if it has never seen me before, which I would have liked to avoid. Should I have copied other files besides permissions.sqlite and the other ones mentioned in the above link to transfer my cookie permissions? Sync is not an option because my old laptop is broken. I could only copy the files from backups.

https://youtu.be/BQSir2EBjz8

I pinned the new tab page as a way of bringing back the behavior of the new tab page appearing after all other tabs have become closed. Since I don't want to close my other pinned tabs, this is the only way for the new tab page/home page to appear after all unpinned tabs are cleared.

However I notice that search results open in this same tab instead of a new tab, which is a problem that is detrimental for pinned tab users. The point of pinning a tab according to mozilla, is to always keep a website or a page available. If search results are opening in the same tab, the original website that was pinned no longer becomes available.

The solution is to add a preference to allow search results to open in a new tab for pinned tabs. Currently browser.search.openintab is the only relevant option, but that doesn't specifically enable the option of search results to open in a new tab from pinned tabs. In order for the pinned tabs feature to work as mozilla advertises, only results from pinned tabs should open in new tabs so that they don't "take over" the original website that was pinned.

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

On my main laptop I built a nice homepage with shortcuts that I use regularly. I would like this exact homepage on all the devices where I sign in with my Firefox account. Instead, every time I sign into a new device and sync, my homepage is completely destroyed and scrambled on all devices, including my main laptop and I have to painstakingly recreate the homepage I want. What is going wrong here? How can I set up one homepage on one device that will be synced to all other devices?

Hello,

I have too many information in my Firefox account but. Before updating I was logout from account and logged only when upgrade is completed. But when I have logged I have noticed that my account don't have any data/password so on. How can I recover it? Is it possible to contact Mozilla support to request to restore my account and tell me why it has been removed?

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 turned off Firefox updates because I'm sick and tired of having to download a new version at least once a week. So now I face a different problem. Every time I turn on Firefox I'm greeted by this annoying, unwanted pop-up spam message:

https://i.imgur.com/qFtXPXr.jpg (also see: attached image)

I want to disable this. I do not want to update, and I do not want to be reminded to update. Please don't waste both your and my time by replying "but you have to update". No I don't. I have nothing sensitive on this PC so even if I got infected by a virus or whatever because it's not the newest version, nothing bad will happen to me. At least nothing I consider as bad as having to update every single week. If there is no solution possible, I will simply stop using Firefox and use a different web browser instead. Thanks.

Firefox 103 screws with website zooming if you use the "Make text bigger" accessibility setting in Windows. 150% for example now zooms in a lot more with the accessibility setting in Windows set to 120%.

How do I undo this change so that 150% is 150% and not bigger than 150%? I had all my frequented websites set up how I liked it and now this comes along and messes it all up >:V at the moment it seems like 120% Firefox + 120% Accessibility is similar to what 150% in Firefox was like but it's not exactly the same. I've now gotta go futz with zoom levels for each web page I frequent again to find what looks most comfortable for each one.

Also this change greatly modifies consistency when it comes to the granularity of zooming. For example, what is 100% zoom when Accessibility is set to 120% so that I can avoid filtered scaling being applied to pictures? Why is the in-browser percentage indication not accurate with the level of zooming actually being applied?

The zoom level I choose is no longer the zoom level applied, there is now a multiplier in effect. So 50% isn't 50% anymore, 60% isn't 60% anymore, 70% isn't 70% anymore, 80% isn't 80% anymore, 90% isn't 90% anymore, 100% isn't 100% anymore, 110% isn't 110% anymore, 120% isn't 120% anymore, 130% isn't 130% anymore, 140% isn't 140% anymore etc.

A website that looked good at 133% can no longer be viewed at 133% if the Accessibility setting isn't also 133%.

Not a fan of whoever decided to implement this seemingly without a way to turn it off.

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.
