Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

The instructions for the Window Titler icon suggest to turn on the Title Bar (with the Firefox icon, usually shows title of active tab, but would presumably show the Window Title if one was assigned). I can't find how to turn it on in version 99.0.1. It's not where the instructions for Window Titler said to look (managing the Menu bar or the Bookmarks bar). Any suggestions?

Would love for this feature (named windows) to become a normal part of Firefox. I wouldn't mind having the Title Bar anyway; at the cost of a few pixels, I would have something to grab onto when moving windows around that wouldn't accidentally do something to a tab.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1710933

If i want to open files into an application i do not want the files to clutter up my downloads folder.

this used to work perfectly pre-v91.

i understand that some users were confused where their files went when they opened them incorrectly within firefox.

currently i'm using a python script to clear my downloads folder from the useless files, but i'd rather just not have to bother with it.

is there a way to get the old behavior back? im comfortable going into about:config and/or using a plugin if i have to.

They helpfully provide a reload every minute or so to keep you up to date with the scores and action. It works in Chrome and Edge but not in FF. I've told FF to allow pop-ups for this site but I can't seem to get it to work - I have to keep reloading the page manually.

Is there a way I can get the constrantly-reloading site to work automatically on FF?

78.0.2/W10

Thanks for any pointers.

Hi,

I often search with the adress bar without thinking, and when searching 'maps' I accidentally hit 'yes' on the little drop down that says 'did you mean...' with the url. Now every time I try to search 'maps' in the address bar unless I specifically press the down key or use @g (or @ddg etc) I am taken to a url I have no use for. How do I disable this default? I spent ages trawling through settings to try to find where to turn this off.

Thank you so much!

I have set the Noto family of fonts to be the default font family but websites that don't specify a font or specify sans-serif or monospace get Liberation Mono. When I changed any option in the fonts settings, the entire browser becomes Liberation Mono. I want Noto Sans be the default font for websites and for the Firefox UI. I tried to fix it by preforming a Firefox Refresh, but it didn't work. I think the problem began after upgrading to Firefox 100 but I'm no 100% sure.

I tried a clean profile, but to no avail. On Windows it works, though.

Any idea what am I doing wrong? I guess I could use some extension, but shouldn't it work with vanilla Firefox the same way on both platforms?

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

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.
