Change in the way Firefox suggests as I type in the address bar

Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.

I deal with www.vistaprint.co.uk The website opens, but I am unable to log in as the page freezes. I phoned Vistaprint and they told me never to use Firefox as it has problems, but to use Chrome. www.vistaprint.co.uk works normally with both Chrome and Windows Edge, but I prefer Firefox. Why do sites not work properly with my preferred browser - Firefox?

Somewhere between firefox developer edition 80 and firefox developer edition 94 a bug was introduced that results in firefox showing a huge list of possible public domains for an email address that i'm trying to enter.

Firefox should only show values I've entered previously. Instead it shows garbage such as gmail and yahoo as shown in the picture.

How do I wipe the list that it's using so that it never happens again?

I just bought a new Mac, and I am learning to use voice control, and voice control does not work to dictate into appropriate text boxes with FireFox. I have verified with Apple support but this is not 100% a FireFox problem, because it turns out the voice control is very iffy in multiple non-Apple programs (Photoshop, BBEdit), and it is iffy in multiple Apple programs as well--sometimes it works with Mail and sometimes it does not. While I do hope that my advisor will be able to get back to me eventually with a solution, I am searching for other ways to address the issue.

The biggest problem for my uses is lack of function with with Firefox. Sometimes it works if I start some dictation in an open textedit file, and then switch to an already open browser window and text box in Firefox. Sometimes this does not work.

I did find another conversation in the Apple forums where someone was using chrome and they were able to adjust a chrome setting for "native accessibility API support" but even though I found this setting in Firefox about:config and set it to true, I'm still having the problem.

Any tips on settings that can be adjusted to increase the chances of success with voice control?

Now on macOS Monterey 12.0.1 and FireFox beta channel 94.0. Problem first noticed before update from Big Sur to Monterey; have not attempted to enable Voice Control on prior versions of MacOS or prior computers.

I have one pinned tab that I want to keep the sound muted on because it's a simple game that I play occasionally. The problem I'm having though is whenever I close the lid on my laptop for the night, then reopen it in the morning, the tab is no longer muted. Laptop is set to sleep when closing the lid. I just want to set the tab to mute permanently. Is there a way to do that without adding yet another extension to my growing list of extensions? Or is this unmute behavior not supposed to happen and something is amiss? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Windows 10 Asus VivoBook 1T C drive 1T D drive 16G ram

In Firefox, I click on settings/General settings and I see the Default Browser box. It is checked , HOWEVER the whole area is slightly blurred and I cannot uncheck the box. Not that I want to, but the system has taken over and will not allow me to uncheck it. At the same time this happened, Microsoft EDGE is starting to come up at various places when another app launches my web browser. Hewlett Packard is a good example. So, I tried to completely uninstall edge, with no luck. THAT uninstall box is also slightly blurred or faded, same as the Firefox default browser is. It is like Windows 10 is trying to take over my system completely. I hope you have had experience with this since they are now messing with your controls and your settings! Please help.

I would like to do an update of Firefox Browser. I've been unable to log in to websites, such as my bank, for which I have been able to access. Strange but I could log in, then for about a week I couldn't log in to bank site via my Icon shortcut. Then it began working again under the original icon. I was forced to use google during this time, which has worked. I prefer Firefox, because of more privacy. Again today, I was unable to access aaa.com, I was able to sign on via my iphone 8. Then I tried Google sign on, again it worked. This problem is intermittent. I thought I'd make sure Firefox Browser was updated. I have windows 7 on this computer. The browser update seemed to start then just hang.

I had a theme in Firefox Color, but I decided I liked one of the new built-in color options. However, it keeps reverting to the Firefox Color theme each time I start - very annoying. Is there a way to prevent this from happening without uninstalling the extension? I don't want to lose the theme I have in Firefox Color, I just don't want it to override the one currently selected. It's a little confusing as a separate extension in the first place, but just wondering how to manage this. Thanks.

Just as was reported https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1313461 here, when I went to Google today, none of the famous "People also ask" dropdowns would work. Neither would any of Google's custom javascript widglets (I made that term up. They are likely Angular apps). This behavior also happened with some of the controls on my online bank's pages. This behavior is not present in Edge.

This is a new computer to me, and once recently, I lost control of some of Firefox's own menu items (I could scroll to items on the 3-bar menu, but not click some of them). Don't know if the two problems are related. The only thing that fixed that issue was to re-install Firefox.

I'm currently on Win 10, FF 94.0 (64 bit). I have tried all the standard advice: clearing cookies and cache, starting in troubleshooting mode, refreshing Firefox, and fiddling with performance settings (am I right that turning on and off hardware acceleration is no longer an option?).

Since I did try troubleshooting mode, I don't think this is caused by an extension, but who knows...is it possible for an extension to break FF, then have the broken behavior continue even after refresh? I'd really like to figure this out so I don't have to re-install the program every time this occurs.

Thanks for any help! -Josh
