Under Tools>Options>Privacy and security, Bookmarks under address bar is checked, but It still doesn't work. I have to type the whole thing in. For example, if I want to go to www.google.com, I can just type in 'goo' and the rest would be highlighted in blue, and I can press enter. This stopped working, the rest won't show up highlighted in blue anymore, how can I fix this?

In the past, I have been able to get to bookmarks on the bookmark dropdown menu by hitting the key that corresponds to the first letter of the bookmark. For example, to get to a bookmark starting with "b", I hit the B key on the keyboard and the first bookmark starting with B is highlighted. Hit it again and the next one starting with B is highlighted. After the last one, loop back to the first one.

That no longer works. Hitting B now stops on "Bookmark This Page", and depending on the time between key hits, it will also stop on "Bookmark All Tabs...". It will not go to any other lines on the menu. Now, to get to "Bank", I hit C followed by up arrow.

Also, behavior is erratic in that sometimes it will stop on a line that does not match the key being hit.

In documenting this, I just discovered that if I type "ba" it will go to BANK. That will help for now. I hope this can be fixed in the future.

This is not a new phenomenon, neither is the thread. But I have not found in here a real solution. I mean they all suggest to delete all the "places" files from FF profile, restart in Safe mode etc. I have enough of this. I have done it in the past and I do it again and it doesn't solve the problem. That's why I am here with the same issue, actually **UNSOLVED**

I give you an example proving that the problem is idependent of "places":

1) I type 'ishow.gr' in the Address bar 2) I enter the site 3) I go back to the previous page 4) I start typing 'is..." 5) No autocomplete

It's as simple as that. And this did not happen in the past (before Firefox Quantum).

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).

I just want my address bar to show the URLS i typed. I don't want it to show any suggestions when I type something I don't want any search results. Just to keep the urls I have typed.

I have turned off suggestions but that doesn't keep the typed in URL.

I have done the about:config thing about rich results and stuff but that also removes ALL the urls.

In general I just want it to say

yahoo.com netflix.com facebook.com whateveriwant.com

and not all the other pages I frequent.

For example, I moderate a FB group and I'm constantly on that page. I don't want that page showing up on my bar. I have delete it by the highlight delete button but is that a permanent solution?

Anyway, I just want a simple URL bar back.

After downloading and installing Firefox 62.0, I found that when I mouse over the address bar, the link to NPR's Morning Edition had disappeared -- it used to appear automatically, along with my school and public email addresses and the news sites I most often go to. At the same time, two new -- and unwanted -- links appeared: The Needle Drop and Overstock Outlet Locations. How can I eliminate these latter two sites and restore NPR's Morning Edition to me address bar drop down menu?

I would begin an address bar/URL entry like "FAC" and it would autocomplete as "FACEBOOK.COM" and I would just hit [ENTER] or "FOX" would become "FOXNEWS.COM", then I would have to hit [ENTER]. Those choices still appear in a drop-down list but it was faster when the URL automatically filled. I had this functionality until the update to 62.0 this week. Can I restore this function in the configs?

I sure would! If I could volunteer in any way to make this happen by January 31st, 2021, that would be great! I'd love it to look modern for the next several versions of Firefox for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Same is true for Fenix for Android. I, for one, am very compassionate about the active development of both those web browsers. One way the Awesome Bar can be changed for the better is to put more emphasis on webpages we've tagged in our Firefox bookmarks. I always add tags to any webpage that has important information like https://www.visitmaryland.org/list/great-maryland-beaches.

Long story short, before the latest FF update 62.0, when I started typing an letter or two in the address bar, I used to get my desired website link on the top of it.

Now, I'm not sure what happened but now I'm getting probably the most visited website link rather than the preference given as earlier. I have to type nearly half the website address or sometimes even the complete one to get the actual web address I'm trying to access, this is getting irritating. Even bookmarks aren't give the top preference over the most/latest visited link.

for example, when I typed - mo, I used to get mozilla links in the address bar drop down list - I just had to open the link I was interested in, now I have to type nearly the entire word, to even get the list related to that specific website.

When will we be getting the custom search engine feature in firefox that is on par with chrome and doesn't require me to write an addon. This is really helpful in the cases when the url is not that of a search engine, but requires lots of mundane and repeated url constructions - e.g. 1. https://<SomeCodeBrowserSite>.com/packages/%s/logs, https://<SomeCodeBrowserSite>.com/packages/%s/releases or https://<SomeCodeBrowserSite>.com/packages/%s/repo-info etc. while, there is a separate search engine with url - https://<SomeCodeBrowserSite>.com/search?term=<search term> 2. And each of the %s will be replaced with the string that is typed in the location bar - in the above example, the first url can be constructed

a. by typing "cbp" in the location bar and
b. space or tab
c. <the actual package name>
d. press enter
e. boom!! you see the url expands and substitutes the string and the page is being loaded.
Search requires 2 hops, while i could directly end up on the page in a single step without the requirement of navigating the search results.

3. In addition, it doesn't require to have a string field that needs to be substituted. for example, i have set "cse" for chrome://settings and as soon as i type "cse" and press enter, the settings page loads.

As a software developer, i have around 50+ such urls each tagged with specific shortcuts and this is the only thing that stops me from moving back to firefox - (desperately waiting to move to firefox given the ram consumption by chrome - but not until these 50 urls are migrated).

Since the last update a blue bar below the url bar appears.

I have followed the support suggestions by 1) unchecking relevant boxes in Preferences, Search and Preferences, Privacy.

Then followed suggestions in about:config by changing the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled to false.

This has not resolved the issue after several attempts.

Hit Reset Firefox and again reset the browser.urlbar.autocompleted.enabled to false. Again this did not resolve the issue.

Please advise how to resolve as the blue bar and list of suggestions is both not required and annoying to the point of no longer using this browser.

I've noticed that with the latest update (62.0, I think), autocomplete won't work for bookmarks when the browsing and download history is deleted. I discovered this by looking into why autocomplete wouldn't work and finding this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1180019, so I deleted the places.sqlite file and that fixed it. That is, until the next time I deleted the browsing and download history. So I guess for now I could try to automate the process of deleting places.sqlite every time I clear the history, but I would like to find some internal Firefox setting or something that would fix this permanently.

The last two updated have killed the functionality of the address/search bar. It's now supposed to be an "awesome bar" but it's quite the opposite. Instead of my normal bookmarks, like "https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" when I start typing youtube I get "youtube.com." I have tried the shift+delete to remove this suggestion but I guess the update doesn't let us do that anymore. I really want to be able to have the bar work like it used to, autofilling your most used favorite, not random garbage.
