I have been using Firefox for many years now and it uses Google, but for the past week or so when I have typed in my search it automatically switches it to BING search. I have checked all my settings and programs but BING is not listed, so why the automatic change over, and how can I fix the problem?

Every time I see New Improved Firefox I groan as it means that what I am used to no longer functions.

Case in point click on FF open page and I have 3 search bars and trying to use just the Firefox will not allow any type to show up just in top two.

1. How do I eliminate the top two?? 2. How when typing can I get it to show up in the Firefox address bar as it has done for the past 12 years???????

The old saying if it aint broke do not fix it comes to mind!! Robin S.

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Control key (ctrl) zooms window, can't copy, paste, etc. using the control key without the window zooming in, this does not happen using other browsers, it started about 1 week ago, possibly after the last firefix upgrade, windows 8

When I scroll down a page, it automatically goes back to the top. Not sure this is related strictly to Firefox.

We had to download Firefox once we had installed Windows 8. Although we now have a Firefox tile on the new Windows desktop, to enable access to Firefox, whenever we click on it to go to Firefox, we get the option to select Firefox as our default browser. Whether we say Yes or No, the screen then locks up and we have to use Control, Alt and Delete to close it.

I moved user profile folders to my retail copy of Win8. My startups (I start TBird when the system starts) imported - and amazingly Thunderbird started up from the startups even though I hadn't installed it.

Then I installed Firefox, and it immediately booted up and asked if I wanted to restore my previous session! There was no previous session in the Retail - but it was the session from my copy of the Release Preview.

My questions are

"Is this a feature of Mozilla products, or a happy byproduct of storing program info/settings/etc in the AppData folders?"

"Will I lose my info if I remove the old hard drive with the Release Preview - or is everything stored in the AppData folders?"

There is some mention in the forums - but most of it is quite old - and in the support page you cannot sort by date - and I don't intend to read through 1,000 entries to find the one I want!

What is UNACCEPTABLE is the lack of clear information in a PROMINENT position at the front of the site.

I have just bought a new Laptop PC and could not get Windows 7 - I had to take Windows 8. Every PC in PC WORLD is now loaded with Windows 8 - and the Mozilla site doesn't even mention it!! And Windows 8 has been out for 5 months.

Is everyone asleep at Mozilla?

Clear information might stop your (ex?) customers getting mad at you.

Firefox works okay but I notice it slow down an lag. When I go on Pandora an play music it'll work fine but once I start opening other tabs it will start lagging the music. This doesn't happen on Internet Explorer. If I play a video YouTube in HD I sometimes have to let it load all the way up or it'll start lagging. I have none of these issues on Internet Explorer. What can I do to fix this?

Since I upgraded to Windows 8 (and almost immediately installed Firefox), Firefox has not auto-updated as it is supposed to. When I see that a new version is out and I check my version, it says that there is a new version available at your site (either mozilla.org or firefox.com, I can't remember) and then I have to manually update.

it is showing some update related xml.

Is the manual download and install is the only solution I've left with now?
