Windows 7SP1. With the Firefox 78.0.1 update, search with Amazon.com, You Tube, Facebook, Reddit, Wikipedia and Twitter appear below the address bar when I start to type the url. I only have as default DuckDuckGo and Start Page HTTPS selected in options, and no alternatives.

I saw the one reply to this issue to use the about:config, browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches, change to false. This did not work.

Why has this been done? I don’t want them and I don’t use them. How do I get rid of this?

FF 78.0.1 installed. Why is FF search now forcing a drop down list of these undesirable websites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. I never use these websites, I don't want to interact with them, I don't want to be told about them, I don't want to be directed to them. I don't want to be distracted with extraneous 'options' that divert my attention from the task at hand. This overrides my Preference settings. I already turned off or deleted all the alternative search engines "that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter keywords." None of these new website additions are in that list.

Is there a simple way to get rid of this without monkeying around with internal settings? Company and public libary users are locked out of this.

PLEASE!!! Firefox is not doing anyone favors by forcing new features without warning or explanation in mandatory updates. We keep losing basic functions like the ability to see URLs in the address bar -which I do need - and then spend a lot of time trying to figure out why something unwanted like this started happening and whether it can be stopped.

1. I had downloaded previous PDF files using Microsoft Edge. They came up on Firefox with no problems. I was able to highlight PDF text with no problems. 2. Today, I flipped a switch to download a PDF file using Firefox and to always display PDF files in Firefox. All previous Edge PDF files immediately had their icon changed. 3. Now, I can define the PDF text I want to highlight, but there is no action to click on to make the highlighting happen in a color of my choice.

In firefox 77 I could choose different search engine for example duckduckgo as default search engine in private mode. In 78.0.1 this setting is missing, no way to search selected text privately or set different search engine for private mode. Only workaround is to go to about:config and enable "browser.search.separatePrivateDefault.ui.enabled". This fixes both problems. Is this still in beta and not officially available or are my settings wrong?

Hi,

I am running Firefox 78.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5.

I get these unwanted advertisements for Google and Amazon whenever I go to type in the address bar (see attached images). How do I disable them? I can't see any option in the "Search" section of Preferences or searching Preferences in general. My search engine of choice is DuckDuckGo, and I do not have an Amazon account. Why does Firefox think have a desire to interact with these companies?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I followed the instructions to show image as custom url (thanks), but now my normal home page data doesn't show up. I would like the normal data, favorite sites, article recommendations..., to show up as a clickable overlay over the custom-url-background.

also, pressing c-t nets a second tab, but now it doesn't show the custom background but does show the normal home-screen information. Is there a way to combine the two?

OK sorry about not getting right back, I ask for help then I don't follow through not the best way of doing this. So I have done some more exploring on this problem. I am not sure what's going on. So I am running dual display on a laptop running windows 10 . Seems to me everything is updated. So up on the main display (external display) it's OK everything seems to be great on it.

So if I go to the laptop display that's where my problem is. So what I have done is on max the window is where I get this problem. Min. the size window goes away if the screen's location is about 1" down from the top of the frame on the screen. If I move it up some just a little 3/4" it seems to be a small drop down window again. If I move it up even more not to the max but just up to say about 1/2" the drop down window gets bigger however it is still cut down with no way to scroll down to see the rest of the window. So what my thoughts are is the over scan of the video is too big? If so how do I take care of it? I hope this helps out. Let me know thank you for your help on this matter. So if I go to single display its all good on the laptop window.

UPDATE: So I have also played with other web browser, Chrome and Edge and I can't recreate it in those browsers. I adjusted the over scan so its not that. I can't get full Images of both displays at once to big of file.

Hi I have never been able to get Firefox to spellcheck in Facebook. I am using the latest version of FF and also of Windows 10 x64. I have the UK English dictionary installed. Does anyone know if this is a well known issue or peculiar to my setup? I've tried to Google an answer but only seem to come up with help for older versions. There are references to 'multi line' text and I've tried making sure I have more than one line but still get no spell check. I am able to see spell check for Facebook in Edge and Chrome, but don't want to chenge my browser! Thanks in advance for any help :-)

Please take me step by step through the process of making this new, wonderful "feature" disappear and never come back. I find the unwanted pop up (pop down, since it shows below the address bar?) annoying, intrusive (I don't want any suggestions unless I ask for them) and sometimes it covers important information.

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

I have just switched to a new Macbook laptop. If firefox, when clicking on the bookmark star in the address field, the drop down box opens to edit the bookmark. When clicking on Choose Bookmark, the list that opens contains only 6 lines of folders to choose from. With my last few computers, I was easily able to search and get an answer on how to increase the number of lines from 6 to whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I never wrote it down and now I cannot recall how to do this. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thank you!

Hello,

i have a problem with a personal webextensions, that i have written for my personal use. I add a new protocol in windows 10 pe registry (player://) and use this to start a special windows script.

My extensions put an new menu-entry on right click and rewrite the url from the tab with the the protocol (play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample).

Now he does nothing in the newest versions of Firefox. I use

browser.tabs.update({url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"});

and nothing happends. The tab.url says www.youtube.com, but nothing happends. But when i call

function updateFirstTab(tabs) { var updating = browser.tabs.update(tabs.id, { // active: true, // loadReplace: true, url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"}); updating.then(onUpdated, onError); }

var querying = browser.tabs.query({currentWindow:true}); querying.then(updateFirstTab, onError);

and then an:

browser.tabs.create({

   		url:"https://example.org"
 		});

He loads the protocol page and the new created example.org page.

When i use tabs.create he call the protocol, like my old tabs.update code.

Is that an security change? But why tabs.update functioned when i call a tabs.create after it? When i must use tabs.create how can i seamlessly close the newly created tab after call the protocol?

I hope it is a bug in web extension;), why my code has functioned with the tabs.update() so many firefox version along.

thx
