Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

So recently my Firefox crashed (as it does sometimes when I sort my bookmarks) and I accidentally clicked refresh Firefox, thinking that it would just refresh everything like a restart does. Instead, it deleted everything - my logins, my cookies, my extensions - and I don't know how to get it back. I tried looking online for the answers, but none of the solutions I found worked (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1195682 was the closest one that had some semblance of sanity) and the closest I figured was that I needed to either create a new profile with different settings I could import from my Old Firefox Data or put the Old Firefox Data in the Profiles folder which doesn't seem to be working, as there are always two other folders within. I tried creating new profiles with the Old Firefox Data as the basis, yet it doesn't work. In addition, I like my old profile and don't exactly want to switch, although if that is the cost of retrieving my data, I will take it. Any solutions please? I rely on my computer quite often, and I don't want to be handicapped for a while. My computer is also the recent updated Mac version, if that helps.

Somehow I managed to lose all of my windows, search history, addins, etc. It would appear that a new profile was created. I tried about:profiles and selecting the old profile (1.4GB) but while FIrefox starts, the places.sqlite file is now place.sqlite.corrupt. I followed the Mozilla instructions to try to fix the sqlite file but that did not help. I restored the full Firefox Application Support folder from Time Machine but that also starts with a fresh profile and selecting the old one gets me to a corrupt places.sqlite file. Given that I have TIme Machine backups, Is there no way to get back to a previous state with my windows, history, addins, etc. I am faced with losing a lot of work if I can't get back to where I was at least since a recent backup.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

I welcomed the Picture-in-Picture feature to the Mac, which allowed me to watch YouTube videos while performing other tasks.

Recently when I have clicked on the Picture-in-Picture icon, the view does the exact opposite of what I want to occur. I want a small window that I can move around and resize. Instead, the video goes Full Screen.

I've tried right-clicking on the icon and on the video, double-right-clicking, looking through Firefox settings, updating to the latest version, etc. -- but stiill don't know how to recover the Picture-in-Picture feature. How do I get that back? Thank you.

My Firefox version is 86.0 on Mac. OS Version is 11.2.2 Big Sur.

I found that basically all color rendered in Firefox is more vibrant than Safari and Chrome, maybe Firefox doesn't handles color management right and renders sRGB in full P3 color space, lead to a over saturate color for almost every element on webpage.

Hopes firefox can fix this soon, I love the efficiency and privacy features on Firefox, This is the only bit I found a little uncomfortable.

You can test your browser here: https://cameratico.com/tools/web-browser-color-management-test/ if you have a P3 support Mac or Windows.

It happened that I worked with an online workbook for classes that I have a subscription for. By mistake I pressed a keyboard shortcut (regrettably I don't remenber it, otherwse I would simply repeat the shortcut), and the content turned by 90 degrees. But not all of the content. The toolbar of the workbook ist still in the same position as it should be.

My suspicion is that the workbook simply is a PDF and that only the embedded PDF turned but not the whole browser window? Has anybody an idea of what to do?

Thank you!

Firefox 86.0 (64-bit) on macOS

When I start to type the URL for an address I use often, for example bar for barnesandnoble.com, I always get barefootyoga.com as a suggestion. I've never visited this website. It's not in my history. I have no idea what it's popping up when typing bar used to autofill barnesandnoble.

When barefootyoga pops up in the URL as a suggestion, I click SHIFT + DELETE, but barefootyoga appears the next time I type bar. (This is happening for almost all other websites where autocomplete used to work correctly--this is just one example.)

I've cleared all history for all time and restarted browser. Same result. After relaunch, I fully typed barnesandnoble.com and visited the website to get it back in history. I opened a new tab, typed bar, and barefootyoga began to autocomplete

In Preferences, I get the same unwanted result with these settings: Search > Search Suggestions > Disable/renable "Provide search suggestions" Privacy & Security > Address Bar > All check boxes selected except for search engine In about:config, I scanned options for browser.urlbar, but nothing looks like it would resolve this issue

I feel as if I am missing something obvious.

PLEASE tell me how to get Amazon OFF of my Top Sites! I have been reading suggestions but none work. I NEVER EVER USE this darn company. I HATE IT. They are STILL destroying small businesses and NO ONE who has any social conscience should support them.

So WHY is it in my Top Sites? Makes no sense at all. I LIKE top sites so don't want to completely disable it but I want this pernicious evil company GONE from my opening page.

VERY much appreciate any help. Thank you very much.
