I'm trying to completely turn off the address search bar function in Firefox. It' so annoying! I go to google. Start to type in the search bar on the page but all my typing ends up in the address bar. So frustrating! If I wanted to search from the address bar I wouldn't have gone to Google to do it. I DON'T want to search from the address bar EVER! So please don't say 'why don't you just..x,y or z'. I've managed to turn off all the address bar suggestions and whatnot with about a dozen different setting which is ridiculous. Turning off the rich results should fix everything but it doesn't. No mater what I try I cannot get text to appear in the Google search bar. So basically Firefox has stolen the functionality of the Google webpage for me. I've been using Firefox for a long time but lately I'm been questioning why a lot. Anyway, any suggestions to stop Firefox from hijacking my search would be appreciated.

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

I am having trouble opening a page from autohotkey. Half the time, my run command causes Firefox to issue a message that it must be closed in order to open the page. "Firefox is already running. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." I think this is somehow related to which profile is to be used. I have insured, from profile-manager, that my current and desired profile are one and the same. I do not include the profile parameter in my RUN command.

I run FF 88. I don't think that matters. As a possible solution, I installed a PORTABLE version of FF94. Same problem still occurs. I was very careful to make sure each has separate PROFILE folders etc.

I am baffled as to how to fix this. It only started a month or two ago. I don't know what triggered it. I don't think it was any particular FF update, because I DO NOT ALLOW automatic updates and perform updates only every 6 months or so.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello everyone

I recently used i2p, and installed the i2p plugin in my Firefox. He broke a lot of settings for me (related to privacy, I think). Interestingly, it broke on all my desktop devices (macbook, iMac, windows pc). After installing and removing the plugin, the following happened: - websites open in English (native to the system - Russian) - websites open in a light theme (native to the system - dark) - Firefox starts in a window not on the full screen (for the inability to track the screen resolution, I understand) - [the most important] interfaces, some web applications began to look blurry (e.g., Google sheets, or Yandex Maps). When I open the same services in Google Chrome, everything is displayed perfectly.

How do I clean the browser settings that came with the i2p plugin?

I've already tried: - Cleaning Firefox - Safe mode - Clearing the startup cache - Complete reinstallation

None of this helped.

I love Firefox, I don't want to switch to Chrome. Help, please)

I just turned off AdBlock Plus in the Add-Ons screen and downloaded ublock origin to try it out. There is no icon for this new plug in to be found anywhere. I can manually go in and change the settings on this plugin in the add-ons screen but there is no icon anywhere to go in quicker or to show a report of how many items were blocked. When I try to Customize my toolbars, the icon is not available there either. The nearest threads I can find on this topic are from 2018 and their solutions are very basic use. Yes, of course I restarted the browser. TIA.
