I have a Dell desktop and laptop both running Windows 1o and Firefox 78. Both are set to open Gmail inbox on startup. The desktop opens to the correct page but the laptop opens to a blank tab. If I select the "Home" icon the Gmail page will populate. I have tried all the remedies I could find online with not change. What could possibly be the difference in the two that would cause this to happen?

I also notice that in Firefox 76 and earlier I could enter info into address bar and search either email or web. Now I must open another tab to search the web. ???

Corel,

Several weeks ago I had already deleted all of the search engines that now appear in that mysterious drop down window and I checked in Options/Search and the only search engine that appears in there now is the only one I want used.

What I want to do is disable the drop down box or at least remove all the search engines that suddenly appear in a drop down box whenever you start to type something in the search box. I don't know why this particular function was even added it is very distracting and annoying.

Thanks for trying to help

John

I have "restore previous session" in options checked and after an update the previous session always came back but after this one it didn't. The restore previous session option under history is empty. All the stuff under profile is gibberish to me and only bring up things which do NOT say restore previous session. Never trust anybody. This is the second time Firefox has screwed me.

I've been using Firefox since Netscape ended and i always enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Firefox 72 is utterly hideous. It is the worst and most unstable browser i ever tested -- it's extremely slow, it doesn't even work with hardware acceleration, it's not compatible with most sites i access and it crashes a lot. Anyway I already reinstalled the version 71, which continues to work flawless and I don't plan to ever use auto updates again. The problem is that every single day Firefox tries to update to the horrible 72 version, and every day I have reject it manually.

I'm looking for a way to permanently block future Firefox updates, without asking me for it again. Any ideas?

Noticed that silent printing doesn't work starting from new Firefox 78. Now I can't even find "print.always_print_silent" settings in about:config using this instruction:

   Set up the receipt printer as your default printer in the Devices/Printers screen.
   In Firefox, type in “about:config” and hit Enter.
   A dialogue box will appear, press “I’ll be careful, I promise.”
   Right click, select New | Boolean.
   Type in: print.always_print_silent
   Select True, then OK.

Could you please, maybe this setting was renamed or deleted?

After a recent update "Search in Yandex" showed up as a pinned suggestion in the address bar. This annoying POS shows only if a non yandex search engine set as default and removes an actual top site I use. Deleting "browser.newtabpage.pinned {"url":"https://yandex.com","label":"@яндекс","searchTopSite":true}]" does the job but doesn't restores replaced site.

To remove it correctly you have to turn on "top sites" in "home" section of settings, set new tab to "firefox home", open new tab unpin yandex from top sites and finally revert settings back to your liking.

P.S. I actually use yandex occasionally but I definitely don't need it showed down my throat (I can install YandexBrowser for that. It runs on blink so sites are showed as developers intended, use less ram, don't freeze randomly, opens faster (preloads on boot) and, check this, latest version runs on windows XP no problem). And if I want to f-about in settings of settings to change something as trivial as search suggestions I might as well use chromium. P.P.S. BTW with this update mozilla also managed to f-up search bar in a way I can't even comprehend. If I click on a site from suggestions and open a new fast enough url of a site I clicked on translates to a new tab but if I wait a bit and then open a new tab address bar is empty. (PScreen included)

Sorry for my bad runglish. Have a great day or whatever

If I terminate Firefox before shutting down the system, the system will shut down correctly in hibernate mode. Any idea what that could be?
