For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

Windows 10 gesture two finger swipe left and two finger swipe right doesn't work in Firefox. Two finger swipe left allows user to go history backward and two finger swipe right allows user to go history forward. These gestures work in Firefox if the user hold Alt key and preform the gestures. But most of the users don't like to hold Alt key and preform the gestures. Please fix that issue.

Issue #1 I have the automatic updates turned off, but Firefox occasionally updates anyway. How can I prevent this from happening?

Issue#2 This is somewhat related to issue #1. I turned off the automatic updates specifically because I did not want Quantum, but Firefox updated automatically, despite the automatic updates being turned off.. I have an older system, and it cannot handle running five processes for Firefox at one time. As a result, my system becomes increasingly slower as time goes by. As running multiple serves absolutely no discernible purpose, is there any way to prevent Firefox from running multiple processes?

Issue #3 Firefox recently updated automatically (again) without my permission, and since the most recent update, the pop up blocker is not working properly, specifically with Yahoo. It is blocking images, and windows that I bring up, but is not blocking what it is supposed to block, and will not let me add an exception for Yahoo. How can I fix this?

I am a Computer Science major, and have been using Firefox since it came out, but I am going to make a change if I can't fix these issues. Firefox is becoming more of a hassle than it is worth.

Can you not be like the other guy? I choose your browser mainly because you don't treat User like we're stoopid, but now you're looking like Google and Microsoft. Uggggghhhhh. Is there something I can do to not receive this prompt. The answer will always be NO!

I asked such a question the day before yesterday, but none answered me I still use window 7 32 bit and I never want to update The new version ( V 98.01 ) is not compatible with Window 7 A black screen is shown just I open the Firefox browser I thought it is virus, but it is not so. Now I am sure of the problem I uninstalled the new version and changed for an old version ( V 80.01 ) and the black screen is never shown The black screen which I complain about= crashing of the browser because it is not covenant to Window 7

2- I changed the update to  (   Check for updates but let you choose to install them )  and the problem is ended but a message about updating still appears in the right corner  need me close each time. 

How can I get rid finally from update message in the toolbar ? In V 80.01 there is no choice ( never check for update )

Hey y'all,

First, thanks for your attention. This has been driving me nuts over the last few weeks and if I can fix it I'd be very happy.

I switched to Firefox a few months ago and immediately set up the password manager and a bunch of bookmarks. Unfortunately, the next time I shut down my computer and restarted, Firefox said this browser was a new installation and had totally reset, with nothing saved.

This happened again a second time, so I set up a Firefox Account so I could have the settings saved to a profile rather than an installation.

Every time I restart the same thing happens: Firefox has a 'new installation' and none of my settings. The first time I logged in to my Firefox account to sync it, it worked. But I've just installed Catalina, previously using Mojave, and on that restart it happened again, but the Firefox account sync isn't doing anything. Now, every time I open up the browser, even if I haven't restarted the computer, it brings me to the same 'new installation' screen. When I log in to my Firefox account as prompted, none of my previous information syncs. Nothing happens at all after I get the "This Firefox is connected" screen.

I know the sync is at least somewhat connected because I can sync tabs from my phone to my computer.

Any ideas? I can re-do all of my passwords and bookmarks, but I don't want to bother if it isn't getting saved anywhere, or if I can't stop this factory reset whenever my computer shuts off.

I'm on a Macbook running Catalina 10.15 if that matters. Thanks!

Abby
