Since I updated to 43.0.4 I cannot disable the search from the location / address bar. I've checked and unchecked the "Show search suggestions in location bar results" button several times, closed preferences, closed Firefox... I don't want to search from the address bar, as it makes navigating with the keyboard rather awkward.

Thanks in advace for fixing this bug!

big problem STILL with yahoo toolbar, ironically, solved it on my windows based computer, but i see now with ff44 it is not woring and no matter how many times i go to mozilla firefox addons and try to install, it pops up with verifying and then never can I get to hit the install button next to it as it just keeps on verifying ...on and on, and i am very frustrated, I need to make my yahoo toolbar work as i have many quick icons to do things, and i use it in my windows based but also need it in my macbook too. please tell me something new, already tried the about config turn from true to false ( as listed in other mozilla forums for fixing/in past, the yahoo toolbar) I will hope to hear from someone soon.

I have produced a web page which uses svg images. One of these is here: http://donwagner.dk/JZSS5.4.svg.

The svg's are produced by Adobe Illustrator, version CS5. Viewed in any browser the images look good at any magnification, but when I print the page in Firefox the image is seriously blurred, seemingly because the rasterization uses the wrong resolution.

The same happens in all browsers, not quite so bad in Chrome but still not perfect.

Do you have plans to fix this bug, or do you have a workaround?

Regards Don Wagner

There is a bug in bookmarks. I use Firefox 19 one one Mac and firefox 20 on another. Whenever I arrange my bookmarks into the relevant folders using the "bookmarks manager" (i.e., manual sort), every few minutes bookmarks manager freezes and does not respond. This freeze manifests through things like -- not being able to scroll up or down, not being able to move files into a particular folder and so on. Its frustrating... as I constantly have to wait till it unfreezes. It happens every single time! Have tried disabling any add-ons that could have been issues, but it hasn't helped....

Started happening today (7/22/2015)--after re-opening Firefox this afternoon, I could not log in to Yahoo, G-mail, and some other password-protected accounts. Fortunately, I could access those accounts in Chrome. I do not have browsers save passwords. I always type them in manually. How can I access these accounts in Chrome and not Firefox? Javascript or what? The whole Flash issue is also annoying. I'm using other browsers more and more. Please fix, or I'll forget using Firefox entirely.

FF 44.0.2 "Bookmarks Toolbar" lost diplayed sort order, won't sort by date added

Running Firefox 44.0.2 on MacMini - OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63) only extension running Pinterest PinIt button

Restarted Mac today and realized the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar as displayed horizontally across the top, had resorted in some odd order.. appears to be alphabetical, from Library view. No amount of resorting "by Added" will stick.

I understand that Library view sorting is only temporary as viewed in Library pane, but >>>how did I lose my preferred order of "by Added" to start with??? <<<

Reading up, I backed up bookmarks as .html and .JSON and also copied and stored a version of the then-current places.sqlite- - shut down, removed places.sqlite from Library>Application Support>Firefox and restarted.

Same problem. Bookmarks Toolbar displays in alpha sort order. Read kz mozillazine corrupt localstore.rdf, learned that localstore.rdf has been replaced by xulstore.JSON since FF 34. Again closed FF, copied, removed and stored a copy of xulstore.JSON from Library>Application Support>Firefox and restarted. Same alpha display convention in Bookmarks Toolbar...

I should point out that though I have culled these and continue to file them, they number in the 2k range, so dragging to reorder is no option. Ok Laugh. I know. The only other thing I can add is that upon restarting FF after the 2nd Library change (removal of xulstor.JSON) i got an empty startup screen and a chrome warning- Unresponsive Script: Script: chrome://global/content/bindings/text.xml:70

Wishing there were a 'save changes' button somewhere.. Many thanks for all you DO- so many resources available- just amazing!

I made the mistake of clicking "check for updates" because it instead downloaded the update. I have my settings set to "check for updates but let me choose whether to install them" but the "Check for Updates" button does not allow me to choose... they're downloaded immediately.

This is a serious violation of my trust in Firefox and I will not allow these updates to be installed. If I can't stop them... I will uninstall Firefox and wash my hands of Mozilla permanently.

I can't figure out what else it could possibly be.

I have mistakenly downloaded a small 'widget' thing which claimed it could help me by downloading videos etc from websites. It is THE most irritating thing I have ever had on my computer; it pops up right in front of every single e-mail I try to type; obscuring buttons I need to use - it's a small bar which says 'Download' on it - but it is always there where there is NOTHING to download; and by contrast, it does NOT appear on sites where I might like to download a clip - e.g. Youtube & BBC iPlayer. So it is useless, but I CANNOT see how to get rid of it. I looked everywhere on my Mac; in 'widgets'; 'library' etc - cannot see it anywhere. Someone suggested it may be something I downloaded into my Firefox browser; but I cannot see it on the 'add-ons' page here either. Does anyone else know this annoying thing & how to uninstall it?

Dear Sir/Madam I have had a look at your solutions page and have tried to use all the advice suggested however, when I try to delete three items on by Toolbar, none of them illuminate the 'BlueStar' which is beside their address. (I have successfully got rid of other items). I have also tried to delete the items in Firefox's library menu, however, the delete button their isn't illuminated either. I am now concerned that the items are spyware. I was thinking of reinstalling the software but, this would mean loosing all my Bookmarks.

For your information, I have just updated Firefox to 28.0.

I would appreciate your help with this matter.

Kind regards Suzanne
