My default search engine is Duck Duck Go. I frequently use a VPN.

I am usually in North America and want to search sites in North America. When I run a search by typing a search term in Firefox, I get results beginning in UK, and I see that a blue toggle switch has been set to UK. (See image.)

This started 2-3 weeks ago.

How do I set things so that my searches begin in North America?

I have checked "about:config" preferences and do not see anywhere that UK is specified. I don't see a region preference setting, either.

Thank you.

For the last month or so I'm constantly having issues with messaging on Facebook and with playback on Youtube.

On Facebook my messages are often not sending (I sometimes get a red "couldn't send message" tag under the message(s) I've tried to send; other times whatever I've tried to send just disappears without trace); also often my chats do not show up properly and they also don't sync properly with messages on my android phone. (Both my Firefox and my Messenger app are up to date.)

On Youtube I get issues with video playback (I have a premium account on Youtube): the videos sometimes randomly stop mid-playback and they either continue after 5-10 seconds or they just never continue at all. If the video quality is set higher than 1080p this happens more often. Other times the image freezes, but the audio keeps going. When I've watched a video and I press replay/play again, the video and the audio are delayed. I have an 11th gen i5 processor with 16 GB RAM and 250/25 Gb/s internet connection. To my knowledge all drivers are up to date. I've been chatting with Youtube support and they were adamant that I need to change to Chrome browser because this is Firefox's fault...

Also, when I use Facebook or Youtube, Firefox consumes a TON of resources (almost all resources) and makes my laptop run hot.

The only thing I can think of that might be an issue from my side is that I have many (and I mean many) tabs open in Firefox. But even after cleaning all history/cache and restarting Firefox and going straight to Facebook/Youtube, without touching any other tabs, I still have the issues with both - the two pages I use most. It's getting very tiring & annoying.

I'm using AdBlock Plus, but for Youtube it is disabled. (Youtube support wanted me to uninstall it... surprise, surprise...)

I hope you can help me find a way to fix this. Thank you

I was doing some research, and I came across for Firefox BYOB, which was a way to create your own skinned, branded version of firefox for company or personal use.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/images/b/ba/BYOB_pitch-deck_v5.pdf

I went to the site, and it was inactive. I am interested in this because of the fact that adding reactive web apps to the home screen in browsers is not an option on iOS, and I think a solution for this would be to have a specific protocol that can be called in shortcuts to open a reactive web app in a specific mode so as to not break the immersion.

Thank you, please let me know if there are ways to build forked apps.

about:restartrequired Restart to Keep Using Firefox An update to Firefox started in the background. You’ll need to restart to finish the update. Your windows and tabs will be quickly restored, but private ones will not.

For months, Firefox will not load pages, like for google for instance. I will press Enter to load the page and it just won't do anything. Sometimes quitting and restarting fixes the issue, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't my internet, as I often have to open Safari to load the page instead, which always works.

I just did a refresh of Firefox, but the issue persists. It's getting to the point of potentially switching browsers. It's frustrating to have to switch browsers if I need a page to load.

I'm on Windows 11 Pro 23H2. This is a pristine installation, downloaded from mozilla.org, default settings, no add-ons. - Firefox 126.0.1. - There are no cookies, history or cache to clean, since it's a fresh installation. - Connection settings is set default to "Use system proxy settings", although I've also tried setting it up to "No proxy", then restarting Firefox completely, then trying again with a new domain. No change. - DNS over HTTPS is set default to "Default protection". I've also set it to "Off", then restarting Firefox completely, then trying again with a new domain. No change.

I don't what else to try and I don't know what's wrong with Mozilla Firefox.

Can you help?

Windows 10; Firefox 126.0.1; DuckDuckGo search engine:

Drop-down suggestions a clever function, but entirely unwelcome in my universe. How to prohibit those?

The problem in DuckDuckGo search is that one cannot readily edit the original search word/phrase, as the suggestions take over that area; can't do a quick LnUp or LnDn, can't do a quick LeftArrow or RightArrow if a correction is needed -- the suggestions just decide to bully their way in at every inopportune opportunity.

I've changed whatever settings in Duckville that I can find, but it doesn't care what I need or think. I've changed the Firefox Search settings but that doesn't make any difference.

Any information/assistance out there?

Many thanks. Appreciated.

Started a few days ago.

Facebook, from bookmarks or freshly typed, does not like my password. States "password entered is incorrect".

This appears to be the Windows version only (126.0.1(64-bit)), as I can login from other, android, devices. Have not tried from a Linux version as none are current.

I have checked and FF does have the same credentials on each device tried. Attempting to reset password from the Windows version will tell me "something has gone wrong".

Cute, eh?
