When trying to access the Google Developer Profile webpage on Firefox desktop, I encounter many errors. I can't sign in a lot of the times, sometimes I kind of get in but it says my profile isn't finished even though it is. I ended up creating it with MS Edge and accessing it that way after I had done a couple of the Kotlin training exercises to make sure my progress was getting saved. Many other times I get a 404 message; the errors I get vary a bit.

I have even tried starting Firefox in safe mode just to disable all extensions and add-ons, still with no luck.

It is only with Firefox Desktop that I am having this issue. When I use my Android device and bring it up on Firefox mobile, I don't have any of these issues. I see my profile and badges just fine.

I recently updated Mozilla to v 80.0 (64 bit) I have Mozilla set so that it does not search from the address bar, and I use the optional search bar.

When I create a new tab the default page contains a google search box, as per the attached screen shot. But if I type in that search box, the search term appears in the address bar, and then Mozilla tells me the address doesn't look right.

Why is the search term automatically entered in the address bar? Since I have the seaparate search bar my search term should appear there.

BTW I hate searching from the address bar. If I want to search I type it in the search box, or in the search box in new tab. Separating the search and address bars is one of my favorite features of Mozilla vs the other browsers.

I just updated to Firefox v.89.0. When I open up a new tab, I get my Bing search engine with a text box in the middle of the page. When I start typing in this text box, my typing automatically goes instead into the address text box. Prior to this version of Firefox, my typing stayed the in Bing (or Google, etc.) search text box. I've tried to look up solutions which sent me to About:config keyword.enabled and other settings but nothing I've tried fixes this problem. I want my search in the larger (Bing) search text box, not in the address (urlbar) text box which is much smaller text. As I said, prior to this version of FIrefox, my typing stayed in the search text box and didn't automatically get moved into the address text box. Please advise.

Since the most recent update to 89.0 opening pdfs in the browser, some websites and all log-in areas are using a super bold, unreadable font. PDFs also print out with this font. I tried changing the font manually, and both checking and unchecking the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box, but it doesn't help. I have no plugins installled This is the Facebook log in for example. The font is so poor you can't tell the 'i' from a lower case 'l'. The pdf sample is from opening it in the browser. If I download it instead, it opens in a normal, readable font. How can I fix this?

Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.

In SETTINGS I do not see another "option" of this "dumb" feature like Firefox has used for decades? I PREFER the SEARCH BAR as it will KEEP my SEARCH 'script' if I get a search not wanted. Then all I have to do is "modify" the SEARCH TEXT and search again. I am trying to get use to typing my SEARCH in the SEARCH bar on the FIREFOX Main screen but is getting hard to break DECADE old habits since I started using FIREFOX after I gave up on 'NAVIGATOR' a 'few' decades back? OK, I am 'ole fashioned' sometimes... I never believed in "change" for "change SAKE". AM I missing something in SETTINGS that SHOULD ALLOW us to choose the NEW WAY OR THE OLD WAY for at least awhile. I would have these issues IF I knew the way to fond, use an older PROFILE as I would still be using versions in the early 80's.

I was converting a MS word doc on my computer to an Adobe PDF and saving it on my computer. FireFox changes it to a FireFox HTML (I'm not not even using the Browser). While MS windows 7 lets me choose which way I want to view it (with Adobe or any browser), it is IMPOSSIBLE to post onto Facebook. FB is looking for a PDF and the file I converted to is something else. So now I can't post my PDF's because FireFox intrudes into my computer and changes things. HOW CAN THIS BE RECTIFIED? Can I stop FF from doing this?

Now I realize, that when I Forget a Website, it actually does delete the saved passwords too. I am confused now. Was this behavior always like this? can it be that because I have Sync on several devices, the deleted password gets restored somehow? I would like to be able to forget a website without loosing it's login details...

I intentionally set my browser so that I can search from the search box in the center of this page. However, when I start typing in that box I get all kinds of stuff from the address bar blocking the box and what I'm typing. I don't want to search from the address bar, I want to use that search box. How do I get this feature back?

Before, all I had to do was uncheck the box in the second screen shot but that no longer seems to work. What's the new trick or why have the search box if you can't search from it?

Also, after a search, my links always opened in a new tab. That no longer seems to be working that way. I prefer my links open in a new tab in case I want to look at other results while keeping that tab available.

Having used Firefox for a decade or more, I have relied on the Restore Previous Session option to open my Firefox and display the same tabs and screens as were displayed when Firefox was closed. That no longer works. You can see in the screenshot below that the option check box is ticked.

This is a fairly recent phenomenon; however, I cannot say for certain when it started. I think it was when the last ver. 88nnn or the first ver 89 were released and installed.

What, if anything, can I do to return Firefox to Restoring Previous Session?
