Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

My FF 91 cannot delete history, no matter what. Not via the "delete" key press on the history list, not by the "forget" button, not via "delete history and cookies" in the settings, nothing! What may be the problem and how can I fix it?

Hi, suddently i can't delete history browsing in firefox. No matter what i try it still not clear the browsing history. What first i do is "Forget About This Site" option to delete single history form a website but it doesn't work. Then i try to delete browsing history from setting, setup to clear history when firefox closed and even i delete history with "Everything" option it still doesn't work.

I don't remember exactly, but if i not wrong i've got this issue since upgrade to 91.0.2 version. For your information, i use Firefox-bin version in Gentoo Linux with i3 Window Manager.

Any help will be apreciated.

The issue is when the youtube video is being viewed (only happens on youtube), it suddenly freezes with a healthy grey bar and a connection, while the audio continuously plays on. After the freeze or stutter, the video never gets out of sync with the audio but actually jumps ahead to where tit is. Meaning I'd lose out on 1-3 seconds of visual footage which I have to rewind to watch again. After the rewind the video doesn't get stuck on the same spot but further down it happens again. It sometimes never happens on some videos I watch but the ones that it does happen, If I went back to watch it again (refreshing tab or finishing the video then coming back) It happens again. Usually repeats within 5 minutes of it happening at minimum. Which is very annoying.

At first I thought this could be a issue on my display drivers. I went searching for solutions all over the web. Common reasons I got for this was that my internet might be slow. Which is bit true ig. But I can view up to 1080p videos without buffering or any problems. So Idk how that's the case. Another reason I got was that it might be hardware acceleration, which I turned off before I got the problem again. Another suggested add ons might be the case. So I turned some off and under more advice used a completely new portable app of firefox (no logins, addons or settings changes) and I got the same results. I also reinstalled display drivers. Disabled the hardware acceleration of the new clean app. And still got the issue. The only time I didn't get the issue was when I was using Chrome. Or Edge.

I've cleared cache and all data,history as well. So I'm really stumped. Someone asked me to make a completely new windows local user admin account and try again. And it happened there as well.

Edit : While trying to get evidence of this, I've discovered that sometimes if I rewind twice or go back more than I usually do the stutter tends to usually repeat on the same place. You can see it in the video.

From about the time I installed Dropbox 2-3 weeks ago my Windows 10 PC won't go into sleep mode unless I close Firefox first. Closing Dropbox makes no difference so it might just be co-incidence. If I use Norton to run a scan and go into sleep mode at end that also works, and PC stays asleep until I wake it. Have tried refreshing Firefox but no improvement (running Firefox 91.0.2 (64bit)). Any thoughts please?

Every couple of days, I go to check what the covid updates are in my province by going to covid19stats.alberta.ca/

However, if I click in the address bar and start typing "cov" - firefox continually recommends covid19stats.aberta.ca/ (with alberta misspelled)

I'm sure I never typed out this url and gone there, and I've deleted it from the search suggestions a half-dozen times. This doesn't happen for me in other browsers.

There is nothing meaningful at "aberta.ca" and I've been to the "alberta.ca" one hundreds of times by now so you'd think it would recommend sites I go to a lot.

Why does it keep suggesting this nonsense url?

Hi I have been having a few problems getting some websites to work properly in Firefox, even when I disable all my extensions (uBlock Origin, DeCentraleyes, HTTPS Everywhere) and also disable enhanced tracking protection.

It has happened with a few websites, but I investigated one yesterday. It failed to load video on Firefox, but had no problem loading it on Edge. The video content was hosted on a site named Wistia.com (which loads just fine by itself).

What settings should I change in Firefox to enable this type of content to work?

I prefer Firefox but speed-tests show it is considerably slower than Chrome and Edge. I have cable network connection. Max download speed is 1000 Mbps. Test show above 900 Mbps for Edge and Chrome and 5-600 Mbps for Firefox, sometimes it is much slower and sometimes download stops for 5-20 seconds. I therefore tried "Refresh Firefox" - and my dear Bookmark sidebar disappeared!! Firefox info told me bookmarks would be saved. Well, it is saved, but it is real troublesome to use it compared to my old sidebar. I WANT MY OLD SIDEBAR BACK - ANY HELP? Kind regards Toralf
