After a Firefox version upgrade, my URL bar search shortcut for Russian Wikipedia has begun to fail. Say, if i search for Диснейленд (Disneyland in English), wikipedia reports that the page does not exist, showing the error message like in the attached screenshot. I've tried recreating the search shortcut, but to no avail, it still shows the error. How do i fix the situation?

Ok, so like the title says.. Years ago, Firefox changed from having the normal "File Edit View History" etc. as the default interface and tried to streamline everything into icons. I have no idea why. Maybe it had something to do with the mobile version. With a few customizations I was able to get the old look back, with my address bar.

Then a while back the address bar changed. It used to be that the address bar had a drop down that listed the sites you used most frequently. At some point mine just sortof froze and only lists the same 8 sites. Except its worse because 2 of them are now searches for Google and Amazon and not even the original google or amazon web pages. I cannot delete pages from this list like I could in the past, either.

Also, you could, you know... put an address in the address bar and it would take you directly to that site. Now it tries to do a search just as often as it actually takes me to the correct site.

This forcing search engines baffles me, because there's an actual search bar, right directly next to the address bar by default.

So if someone could help me understand how I can change my address bar back to being an address bar, that would be a great help to me. Second, if I could fix the drop down of sites to either be my most frequent sites, or a list of sites I add manually, that would be great also.

Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

What is the nature of the "Disconnect" agency whose solicitation appears as a tab page from Firefox requesting donations? Please explain who is "Disconnect." From the web address it is not clear what the connection is with Mozilla. What is the difference between donating via the "Disconnect" and donating via the route provided under the "about Firefox" menu item? Presumably "Disconnect" is servicing Mozilla, yet I am wishing that relationship and security to be clarified more convincingly before contributing by that route. Thanks for responses.

Long story short, I have gaps in my history in Firefox. I'm on the latest stable desktop version, but this happens both on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04) and Windows 10.

I can't really pin down what causes this, it seems totally random. Every now and then, I'll be browsing, close the browser, realize I need to do something on a page I was recently on, I relaunch, press "ctr+h", go to the 'Today' drop down tab, and the most recent entry is multiple hours old, in some cases it's not even from the same day. The pages I was just on are nowhere to be found.

I would guess it's just late to update the history, but then there are times where I'll go through my history from a few days ago looking for a specific page I know I visited, and I'm able to find some but not all. Again, it just seems like there are random gaps in my history.

There are ongoing discussions about the high touchpad scrolling sensitivity on several Wayland applications like Firefox. Luckily, I found a workaround with this issue by setting `apz.gtk.kinetic_scroll.enabled` to `false` and increasing the default value of `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS` from `50` to `120`. However, there is still minor quirk with my scrolling experience especially at the end of each scroll or each time I pause scrolling.

This minor quirk has a lot to do with how I do the two-finger scroll gesture. For each scroll, I don't necessarily lift my fingers up immediately. I might pause for a while then scroll further until my finger reaches the end of the touchpad or I might scroll in the opposite direction without lifting my finger up. However, just having two of my fingers rest on the touchpad detects even the slightest movement. The effect is a page slightly shakes each time I pause scrolling without lifting my fingers up. Although, this minimal shake also occurs as I lift my finger up.

This behavior is detailed in a bug report here . It might have something to do with Wayland but based on my experience, the issue still persists when running Firefox through XWayland. Also, Vivaldi (Chromium) which also runs in XWayland, doesn't show this problem. In Vivaldi, the touchpad will be less sensitive (at least that's how it feels for me) each time I pause scrolling.

I already tried fiddling with the following through the `about:config` to no avail:

  • apz.touch_move_tolerance
  • apz.touch_start_tolerance
  • mousewheel.transaction.ignoremovedelay
  • mousewheel.transaction.timeout

I am attempting to change my secondary email address with the intent to make my new email the primary email. I have removed the old secondary email, but when I try to add the email address that I want. I get an error message saying that the email already exists. I note that in the Firefox account dialog the secondary email address is blank.

I did sign up for Firefox VPN using the email address that I'd like to use and so that's a possible reason. I just don't know how to fix it. Note; I'm no longer planning to use Firefox VPN. I wonder if perhaps there's a way to cancel/delete that account.

'bold text'Problem with appearance of aplusnet email on my iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.2.3.

For no apparent reason, everything in the Firefox window displaying this email application appears about one-fifth or less of normal size. (See attached screen shot.) Everything, meaning text fonts, graphics, etc. No other Firefox window or tab similarly affected. I tried restarting the application. And then restarting the computer, then Firefox, then the aplusnet email. No soap. Not responsive to changing the font size.

No idea how this happened, but it’s rendered the email unreadable on Firefox. I'm running Firefox Browser 87.0. Thanks very much for your help.
