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.

It does not matter how many times I change this setting in preferences to "Open in Firefox" I still get this pop-up every time I click a pdf.

It also does not matter how many times I select "open with preview" and click "Do this automatically for files..." box. Every time I click the next pdf the same thing pops up!?!?!?!

And additionally no matter my selection I make ends up leading to a pdf being downloaded automatically.

This is beyond frustrating. Please help.

Hi,

Im struggling like hours on getting a http connection to a private webservice of mine... Firefox always redirect me to https://example.com instead of http://example.com.

I tried following solutions: - delete whole cache - Start Firefox in Safe mode - removing all extensions - setting this in about:config:

   security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false
   security.certerrors.permanentOverride = false
   network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist = false
   security.enterprise_roots.enabled = true 
   browser.urlbar.autoFill to false in about:config.
   browser.cache.check_doc_frequency from 3 to 1. 
   urlbar.autofill false
   browser.urlbar.trimURLs false

- restarting firefox - restarting computer

And still this damn brower redirects me to a https site!!!!!!!!!

Searching for a solution since 4 hours. Please help me!

I have two Firefox Bookmarks items in my Menu Bar that are duplicates. The titles are slightly different but they are the same G Mail acct. I'd like to delete one of them from the Firefox Bookmarks Menu Bar. If I recall there may be an issue of them both being deleted if I try to only delete one? Thank you

Valued community members: Not looking for a fix or work around solution here. My goal is to better understand why this occurs. Each time I (frequently) update to the latest version of Firefox, I Iose extensions (in this case new tab - cursor to search bar). I know that users can go in and correct this, but I would prefer that settings, extension, addons, etc, be preserved. My question is, is that really challenging of a code writing task? I know next to nothing about programing, but based on my experience using other apps, I would think preservation would be a piece of cake. Can a Code Joe comment in terms I might understand?

Is there a way to permanently disable checking for updates? I don't want to update (and I don't care what people think about that), but every 5 minutes an update notification pops up that needs to be closed, and it is getting really annoying. Again i don't want to update and there is no option to disable checking for updates, only to automatically update whenever firefox wants to ruin my day or to bother me until I allow them to ruin it.
