In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

This is a new feature of the built-in Firefox Home / new tab page. No good? There is a preference for this:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false

Success?

By the way, you shouldn't lose preferences during a normal update. Did your Firefox perform a Refresh? The tell-tale sign is a new folder on your system desktop named Old Firefox Data.

Thanks for the info, it worked. FireFox did pop up a notice that it had installed a new version and asked if I wanted to try it but I clicked later ( or similar ). This happened on 2 of my computers so far. No new folder was on my desktop but it was definitely changed. Lost my menus, search bars, etc.

Perhaps I was a bit touchy about it but I have enough issues, running 4 each 8 core servers with 4 to 5 each 2 or 3 TB drives on each plus several other systems and it is demanding enough without surprises.

Same problem on a 3rd computer. Thanks for the fix but really, ask before changing.

P.S. I'm just a support volunteer, I won't be calling you about future changes.

Thanks for the help jscher2000. When I said "ask before changing" I was not referring to you but to whoever is in charge of the updates. I just had this same problem on a new install. At least I knew what to do but something like this should NOT have been made a default. It is a problem that I have seen across the board with Linux lately, someone making decisions for everyone. Just because some admin or programmer likes a feature or a way of doing things does not mean that it should be forced on everyone.

@jscher2000

Thanks for the helpful information.

Do you have any idea why Mozilla did this? Why fix something that's not broken? And why not have a pop-up notification about it?

Oh well, I suppose this is progress.
