Under Options>Privacy & Security I disabled (unchecked) all the Address Bar actions because I don't want the auto-suggestions to pop up every time I click in the address bar. However, in spite of that, the suggestions continue to pop up. How do I get them turned off?? (Yes, I've closed and restarted the browser.)

I have a completely fresh install of mozilla on my laptop *HP Elitebook 8470p*, it plain refuses to load webpages, and it seems to be the only browser to have this issue.

It has the following specs: a I5 3340M 8GB DDR3 RAM at 1300MHz Integrated graphics chip

Its running windows 10

Is this a case of the specs being utterly lacking or am I missing something.

FF 77.0.1 W10.

I get this message on one specific website, every time I visit. It happens on other pages, but not continually, and not regularly.

Is there a remedy? Updated recently and do not want to have to reset or do anything drastic.

Asked this two other times, but I tagged on to previous conversations. Unfortunately, I did not get the usual prompt response.

Thank you.

Hello, after my PC died and got a new one plus a new mobile it sync everything but my passwords. Strange thing is all passwords are still in my android tablet firefox, which I have connect and trying to sync, but with no luck so far. There are thousands of passwords there from many years and I'm afraid if tablet fails I will lost everything. BTW it cannot get/or send passwords from chrome or I could have shift passwords to other devices through chrome. Something change regarding passwords lately? Thanks in advance.

I'm trying Firefox on MacOS and from what I understand, the toolbars should hide in full screen mode and appear only on mouse over. Except they do not.

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?

I have a website that I log into for work that needs a username and password. I was able to get into this website just fine yesterday. Since then, Windows 10 bricked itself with the latest update so after erasing the hard drive and reinstalling, I downloaded Firefox and signed back into my Mozilla account. After everything got sync'd, that's when the problem began. When I put my credentials into the website and hit submit, the form fields just clear themselves out and no error message appears. I tried logging into this website with my phone, Chrome, and even Edge with no problems. I went into my Firefox history and clicked "forget this site" and I even got desperate and reset Firefox just a moment ago. So, it's just Firefox that's suddenly having problems as of yesterday. Any ideas?

I have both FF 76 and 77. At least with FF76, when I type in the address bar, in the drop-down, identifies the Bookmarks with a star to left of the bookmark so I know it's a bookmark at a glance, but still does not show any identification for History items. But in FF 77, there is NO star identifying Bookmark items and nothing for history items. Why aren't there any symbols identifying or categorizing the address bar drop-down items? I can't tell if it's Bookmarks or History or Open tabs. Thanks.

Unless I knowingly have a setting enabled to prevent these symbols.

I haven't been able to access Wikipedia or Youtube all week. I only get the "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." Every other website I've tried works fine. But if I try in private mode, Wikipedia and Youtube come up fine as if nothing is wrong, so I think something is up with firefox.

I've been trying to find a solution in other threads. Things I've tried: clearing cookies and site data; disabling all extension; ran a full system scan for malware and viruses. Nothing has worked

Any other ideas?

I saw in the FF 77.0 release notes that 'Recommended by Pocket' was now available in the UK and went to try it out. Two problems, one of which I've found a workaround for and one I haven't.

1 The Recommended by Pocket tickbox that's supposed to be in about:preferences#home isn't there in my browser (FF 77.01 Windows 10 laptop). That whole entry as described in the help pages simply doesn't exist. I've managed to get the Recommended by Pocket section to appear on my NTP by manually turning it on in about:config, but obviously I'm not supposed to have to do that. So why is it missing in my Options page?

2 Where's the UK stuff in the results? The FF 77.0 release notes announcing recommended by pocket now available for users in the UK links to a Mozilla blog entry that says:

'What does this mean for Firefox users in the UK? Open a new tab every day and see a curated selection of recommended stories from Pocket. People will see thought-provoking essays, hidden gems, and fascinating deep-dives from UK-based publishers both large and small — and other trusted global sources from across the web.'

Well I'm not seeing any articles from UK-based publishers of any size, just US ones. And yes my FF language is set to English (United Kingdom), and browser.search.countryCode and browser.search.region in about:config both show GB. So where's the UK content?

Hi, I'm not sure exactly when this started happening but when I click in the right half of the address bar the suggestions which come up now include "Search with Google" and "Search with Amazon" and several recent site visits (facebook, BBC etc) but doesn't include "google.co.uk". I like to return there as a route to gmail, google drive etc. It used to include "google.co.uk" before "Search with Google" and "Search with Amazon" started appearing, which I guess was on a Firefox update. I'm on Firefox 77 on W10.

Any suggestions please?
