Google Advanced Search fails when using Firefox.
I am using Firefox version 119.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 22.04. Using this version of Firefox, as well as previous versions for the last few months, I am having a persistent error when using Google Advanced Search. I enter search criteria into the field “Find pages with … all these words” and successfully progress through a chain of web pages. Previously I was able to backtrack to the previously mentioned field and find my search criteria, then edit the text, and carry out a modified search. For many months this field has been blank when returning to it. So it is now necessary to re-enter all text for a new search. This is very frustrating. I have experienced this problem on the three computers that I regularly use.
I have found that when I use the Google Chrome browser the problem goes away and searches progress normally. I would much prefer to use Firefox as my browser as I find its bookmark system superior. The truth is that if this problem with Firefox can’t be fixed soon I will be forced to migrate to Chrome. Can you please help me resolve this Firefox problem?

This was fixed in version 120 (Bug 1850335).
Just updated to Firefox snap in Ubuntu to 120.0.1 (64-bit). That alone did not fix the problem. I then followed discussion on bug 1850335 and saw suggestion to set docshell.shistory.bfcache.ship_allow_beforeunload_listeners = false This seems to have corrected the problem me. Thanks for the lead.
