Hello!

I always use private browsing so I thought that my history was totally not being saved, but discovered recently that when I started to type within the search field, that many of my past searches were listed in the search field with the type highlighted in purple. I had to manually go in and delete all of these past searches. I don't want any search history to be saved. Is there a setting in preferences that I'm somehow missing? Why is Firefox saving these past searches if I have it set to Always Use Private Browsing?

Thank you!

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.

I have installed media codecs as per this fedora help

My autoplay setting look like as per the attached image. I do not have any extensions except Bitwarden on Firefox.

I also tried playing videos on Firefox 100 by downloading it directly from firefox website but faced the same issue.

My google drive keeps disconnecting, and google drive/google docs links are not working. I have attached a screenshot of the new tab page when I copy paste a google sheets document URL into the search bar and hit enter. After the reloading icon animates, I stay on the new tab page and the url just sits there. The debug console shows 1 GET request that is timed out (picture also attached).

I can fix the issue by completely closing all firefox windows and opening again, but it will disconnect me after some minutes.

Not sure when it began, probably before the current version, i.e. it's not related to the latest update. When exiting, everything seems fine at first but then Crash Reporter pops up. If I try to restart my Windows/PC with FF open, the restarting becomes blocked by Firefox, so I have to cancel the restart and deal with Crash Reporter first.

The same crash happens in Troubleshoot Mode.

I don't have any special security software (aside from Malwarebytes with real-time protection disabled).

Latest reports: bp-3e00592e-2756-43bf-9642-01b550220502 bp-2435de7c-8279-4d85-b151-b94380220502

Signature is different (almost) every time but as far as I remember no crash felt any different from the two crashes above. For example: bp-093ec6db-d0e2-4f05-8dbd-e03b50220429 bp-47c1b14c-cba2-4007-9f53-089fc0220429 bp-f4ca1090-d760-4209-a47f-8d40e0220429 bp-4a506f38-75ac-4f62-b4bc-324f00220429 bp-d9a19762-4234-450e-82ed-d41940220429 bp-1b0e9da0-29e6-4107-ad7e-ed77f0220429

I've always used the "Always ask you where to save files" option when downloading. Recently (beginning of April 2022), files go directly to the Downloads folder. The "Always ask" option is still selected in Settings.

I've tried un-selecting and re-selecting, restarting Firefox, restarting my computer - basically every iteration of 'turn it off and on again' that I can think of.

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Hi, so I noticed that the "WebGL Renderer String", which Firefox returns upon request, seems to be quite imprecise in some cases.

My desktop machine has a Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti built into it.

Google Chrome for example returns the exact and correct renderer string: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0, D3D11-27.21.14.5671)"

Firefox instead seems to assign and return a more simple, generic renderer string, in my case: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)"

This is of course a great feature in terms of privacy ("browser-fingerprinting"). Nonetheless I didn't find any information about the rules which are applied, before such a more generic renderer string is being returned by Firefox. It would be cool if someone could share an insight with me!

Best regards

Hi I have been a user of Firefox for many a year, and this is the first tme I've come across an intrusive problem. Since updating to the latest version, I find I can no longer change the icon on a URL shortcut. I had quite a few of them, which helped distinguish (obviously) what I might want to select. That was then. Now, I have a load of indistinguishable Fireox logos which make finding the shortcut I want imossible. On going to change the icons, I find the Website Document tab in properties is no longer there .. while I have Firfox installed. Remove Firefox and the capability magically returns. I have re-installed Firefox in case of corruption, with no change. Before I remove Firefox permanently (which I'd be loathe to do), does anyone know the cause ... or solution or workaround?
