Hello, all - I received the attached message when trying to install Avast Antivirus. I'm wondering if Firefox might have beeen corrupted in some way, especially because I've downloaded Avast before with no problem. I followed the suggestion and installed it via the Opera browser, but Firefox is my default and I'm concerned. Has anyone had this experience and/or know what to do about it? Thanks much in advance, as always!

Stop Firefox from suggesting root URLs of bookmarks

Is there a way to stop Firefox from suggesting/autocompleting the root URL of pages I've bookmarked? For example, say I've bookmarked https://www.mysite.com/pageone and named it "My Site - Page 1". If I start typing "my" in the URL bar, the very first suggestion is https://www.mysite.com, instead of my bookmark.

NOTE: I have disabled ALL other suggestions other than bookmarks, including common/popular sites (i.e. typing "goo" will not autocomplete with google, because I have not bookmarked any google sites)

I didn't bookmark the root URL, so I don't want it to be suggested. Any way to disable this behavior?

Thanks!

I put "bookmarks" for the subject but that's just because none of the other options adequately describes my situation! I just got a new MacBook Air. I hate Safari, so I always use Firefox instead as my main browser on Mac. Have been doing it for years. This time, I set up Firefox the way I wanted it, with a specific home page, logged into all my sites, emails, Facebook, youtube, etc etc, and set them all on my Toolmarks bar. ... Then a couple of days later, had to re-sign in to my computer due to downloading software, and lost everything I had done on Firefox! Had to re-sign into all my accounts again as well. Set everything up on Firefox again ... couple of days later, had to re-sign into my computer to due to downloading software ... lost everything I had set up on Firefox, had to re-sign into all my accounts. I would be so appreciative if anybody could tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it! I really love Firefox and don't want to give it up! Talked to Apple about it and they say it's not their issue. ... Thanks so much!!

Mac 10.15.7. FIREFOX 86. Groups of bookmarks are gone. This happens regularly. Bookmarks I rebuild yesterday, that group is gone today.

The bookmarks are "there" but not in their group.  Takes hours to re-sort.

It takes a LONG time to rebuild from HTML backup. The jsn backup is ok, but it wipes everything I have done today out. I backup almost every day.

I have thousands of bookmarks = hours of work. Then I have to spend many hours rebuilding. 1/ What is happening? 2/ How to stop it?

For some time now (at least a year), I've noticed that the colors in videos are slightly off. The problem never affects still images, just videos (on every site).

Most users wouldn't notice the problem as it's quite subtle, but all the hues are all slightly off: Reds are slightly more yellow than they should be, yellows are slightly redder, blues are slightly more cyan, and cyans are slightly bluer.

I don't use other browsers so not sure if this is a Firefox problem or a wider problem.

I don't have Flash installed so (presumably) the videos run in HTML5.

Just yesterday some common redirect sites like adfocus and adfly stopped loading in nightly. example: http://adfoc.us/serve/?id=27122877684764

I'm guessing this was done fore security reasons as most people would fall for the fake downloads (or sometimes the entire page redirecting to a new tab when clicked anywhere on it), but it would be great if an option could be added to allow it to load like with: [hey cor-el ask for the link since I don't want this post to get removed :P]

since if you know what you are doing you do eventually work your way to the correct download even if it involves inspecting > deleting the invisible buttons covering the page...

There might already be something in about:config to do it so if so please let me know.

When viewing a video powered by a Brightcove player, the playback control bar on the bottom does not hide when entering full screen mode. I have tried moving the mouse in all areas of the screen, play/paused it with the spacebar/mouseclick, and tried several other methods but it simply does not want to disappear. An example of a website that uses the Brightcove player is the IPL website. You can click here to access one of the videos on the site.

I have tested this with other browsers and the playback control disappears as it should when entering full screen so it seems to be some issue with Firefox. I recently contact Brightcove support and they were not able to replicate the issue on their version of Firefox and just recommended I use a different browser. But it would be really helpful if someone could help me fix this strange bug.

Thank you.

Hi, I have been having trouble remaining logged in at the Youtube website. I go to the Youtube.com main page and click "Sign In." It logs in using my Google account. However, if I click on any video on the home page, I am logged out again. I have tried signing in and signing out of Google. I tried clearing my cache and cookies. I also used the "Refresh Firefox" option in Firefox settings and I still have the problem. Is there any way to fix this? Thank you in advance. I am using Windows 10 for my OS.
