I used to be able to press Enter in the empty Firefox search bar to bring up the (DuckDuckGo) search page and enter my search from there. Don't ask me why I like doing that, but now after the latest Firefox update, 128.0, on my MacBook Air I can't do that anymore. I have to type in the search bar to bring up the search page.

I know it's a small thing but I wonder if it can be put back to the way it used to be.

YouTube all of a sudden started to slow down and only be able to load videos fast enough in 360p resolution, I tried watching YouTube on Microsoft edge and YouTube handled 1080p easily there, I have cleared the cash and made sure my Firefox and Windows are up to date and still the issue persists.

this only seams to occur on YouTube as amazon prime and speed test works without issues

My issues:

1) Every time I close Firefox I get the Mozilla Crash Reporter telling me that Firefox has crashed. Sometimes I even get the Mozilla Crash Reporter when I start Firefox. But Firefox is still there.

2) When I turnoff my Comodo Firewall, Firefox has no Internet connection.

I have done clean uninstalls/reinstalls over and over. I go thru and adjust settings. My other browsers work fine, including WaterFox, WaterFox Classic, and Vivaldi.

I tried turning off my security software to test. Specifically exiting Comodo Firewall seems to have caused Firefox to not have an Internet connection. All other browsers have Internet access except Firefox. And the Crash Reporter cannot "report" when the Firefox Internet connection does not work, though I did have it report many times when the connection DID work.

One other clue: In Task Manager I see that even though I have closed Firefox, there over 20 instances of it still running. When I try to open it again, I get the "Firefox already running" error message. When I try to kill these instances/processes many will not close.

This problem has been persistent for more than half a year since I built my new PC. I am on Windows 10 LTSC. Besides Comodo Firewall, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is my main anti-malware.

Please help! Thank you!

As of a few days ago whenever I start Firefox the window appears with the Bookmarks sidebar panel already opened. I click the "X" on the sidebar and it will close - until the next time I start Firefox. If I choose Menu->View->Sidebar->Bookmarks and uncheck it the panel will close - until the next time I start Firefox. No matter how the Bookmarks sidebar is closed, it will always reappear when Firefox is restarted. Even if I switch to some other sidebar, Bookmarks will replace it on startup.

I've searched about:config and found no setting which seems to control sidebar behavior on startup.

I assume this is the result of some recent update. Is there no longer a way to permanently disable the Bookmarks sidebar?

As of today, I am unable to scroll with my mouse in google sheets. The scroll bar on the right disappears and I'm taken to the bottom of the spreadsheet and can't scroll back up.

Firefox recently 'crashed' on my desktop PC. It asked me to restart in safe mode or restore to the original state. I chose to restore. This meant that I had to re-add all of my add-ons and log back into my favourite sites as my log-in details had disappeared. I got everything back to normal eventually, except for one very important site. I am now no longer able to log on to my bank website to review my accounts. I get an error message on the site saying " Log on error. You need to enable cookies in your browser to logon to Internet Banking." I have never had this problem before. I am able to log on successfully on my tablet, and also via a different browser on my desktop PC. I'm not a tech expert so this is very frustrating. I've tried clearing cookies/cache/data in the settings but no success. I really need to access my bank accounts on my desktop as I find this easier. Hopefully you can help as I don't want to use a different browser.

For a long time I've used Firefox on Linux with multiple instances each with their own profile folder. Today when I try to run these instances with separate profile folders I get the following error:

> Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

Profiles are created like this:

firefox --new-instance --createprofile "PROFILENAME ~/.firefox-PROFILENAME"

They are run like this:

firefox --new-instance --profile "~/.firefox-PROFILENAME"

It seems something has broken with the instance isolation as this is now throwing an error. Additionally I run "createprofile" it doesn't seem to actually create the folder.

My firefox suddenly stops working, it crashes on every tab I open.

I tried the troubleshoot mode (safe mode), tried refreshing firefox, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, tried cleaning the firefox folder and registry manually and then restart, ... everything that I could find on web, it just keeps crashing.

In "about:crashes" tab, it shows nothing, so I dont know what I can provide for diagnosis.

I have an issue with Firefox 127 not accepting a session cookie that I use for user authentication. I have an ASP.NET application with a login form that includes fields for login and password, and a submit button. When the button is clicked, an HTTPS/POST request is sent to the server. The server responds and sends back a session cookie named .Cookie.Name with the parameter httpOnly set to true.

When I check in Firefox's Developer Tools under the Network tab, I can see .Cookie.Name in the server response. However, in the Developer Tools under the Storage tab, .Cookie.Name is missing, which prevents the user from logging in. This problem does not occur in other browsers like Chrome or Edge, nor does it occur in Firefox version 126. The configurations for Firefox 126 and 127 are identical.

Could you please assist with this issue?
