Firefox is my default browser. When I search, why do I see Google in the search box? It confuses me. Help me understand.

I want to get as far away from Google as I possibly can. What is Duck Duck Go? Opera?

I have recently been suffering an issue where the browser becomes unresponsive and consumes massive amounts of hardware resources especially memory, in one case was using over 60 gigabytes of combined physical and virtual memory.

I have tried refreshing with Firefox Refresh, reinstalling and the problem still persists.

I believe it is either one of the addons Tree Style Tabs, but I don't know how to accurately diagnose this though, as sometimes I am able to get to the about:addons and disable one or the other but the problem doesn't go away and in some cases escalates to freezing the whole process.

When the application does this, the currently selected pages still work say I have one open of the ABC news website, I can still scroll up and down, but if I click a link to another article or something, nothing happens, same applies if I try to do anything with the address bar, the history and suggestions pop up but the browser doesn't do anything even after I hit enter.

I'd like to try and find out what the program is doing during this state of unresponsiveness, I left it for a couple of hours last week to see if it could work itself out, turns out it couldn't and the system ran out of Ram and fell over. I'd like to know how to diagnose it, know what it's doing, what it's hung up on and if it's related to an addon, tell the creator about it.

I apologise if this is not the correct way to go about this, I have just run out of patience trying to fix this myself.

Today, I noticed the Ghostery icon usually in the upper right of the Firefox browser is missing. I would like to know how to restore it. clicking on the icon enables me to manage trusting or not trusting sites. This is an important option to have for visiting some sites. I don't know what happened.

Thank you,

I have problems with any programs that run "Automatic Updates" I have just realized that TB v78 has done just that with no option to enable or disable this feature, while I appreciate some prefer the "hands off" approach I like a little more control over my updates as I like to do "backups" before updates get automatically installed!

Cut to the chase, 'How do I turn off auto-updates in version 78.5'?

Thanks!

I have several Gmail accounts. I set one up as a full POP3 and SMTP new account in TB. Both incoming and outgoing work just fine.

The second account I only entered as a new sender in the "OUTGOING SERVER (SMTP) SETTINGS". That one doesn't show up in the list of Write> choices.

Do I have to create a full POP3 and SMTP account for each Gmail account in order to use them for outgoing mail?

I’m using iPad iOS 10.14 and Firefox, fully updated. When I add a new bookmark, the keyboard is activated but then quickly closes before I can type a title. It does this whether or not I start trying to type. I can bring it back by clicking in the title input bar, and then it’s steady and stays until I finish and select *Done*. It’s a small issue, but is a malfunction that only appeared after an update. I don’t know exactly which update, and whether it’s the iPad OS or Firefox’s. I’ve updated, emptied the caches, restarted, etc, without it changing.

Anyone else have this issue?

I continually have a yellow bar across the top of the page when I open Facebook on Firefox.

It says "A web page is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" then there are 2 buttons and a X next to that question.


My request is for Firefox to tell me it is Facebook causing the problem and how to get rid of it.

Was using FF 79.0. Everything worked great. I upgraded to 80 or so a while back and found that it was taking ~7-10 seconds before FF would begin to load an initial webpage, so I used system restore to go back to 79. I've upgraded to 82.0.2 and the same thing is happening. Tried going back using system restore, but system restore failed for some reason, so I'm now stuck. I haven't had success re-installing FF 79.0. Any ideas why FF would be so slow loading a page? FYI, once I'm on that website, if I click to another page on that website, it loads quickly and normally. Only seems to be when I'm moving to a new website. I'm using Windows 7.

When I visit https://online.kasikornbankgroup.com/K-Online/indexHome.jsp, and click the K-Cyber Banking tab, all I see is what is shown in attachment 1 - symbols and the View | Text encoding is greyed out. I am unable to see my accounts. This issue started with Firefox 83.0 and people on some other forums have reported the same issue.

The tab should look more like attachment 2.

Does anyone know what is causing this, whether it is a browser problem or bank problem, and if there is a fix for it?

I see these strange gray blocks (I think related to twitter) that have a light vertical bar moving across. This happens a lot of times. Has been happening for a few months. I suppose this relates to something they started doing in HTML at that time.

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I am not getting the fire fox 83 update on google play. I uninstalled the app and re installed and I'm still stuck on version 82. I am running Android version 8.1 on a Motorola g5 plus phone. I really want the update because I want the new ad blocker add on. My husband got the update on a lower end phone running an older android version and less memory than mine so I am a bit confused why my phone didn't prompt me to update. His google play is just set to notify when updates are available it's not even on auto update. Is this possibly a google play issue as I see no reason why I didn't or couldn't get the update on my phone. Please help/ suggestions. Thank you.
