When I open a new tab and press either [↑] or [↓] or click in the location bar (the blank space where the URL goes), a dropdown list appears. See attached screenshot for the list.

There are some frequently visited sites like gmail. There is one bookmarked site I frequently access. In the screenshot, this is the one with the blue star. And then there's the mysterious URL to an html on my Linux Mint computer ("/home/[...]/[...].html”). The icon for this is a gray thumbtack.

I press the down key until this mysterious URL is selected, and then press Delete, but it doesn’t get deleted.

What is this and how do I get rid of it? I tried searching for it in my Bookmarks, but I don’t think it’s a bookmark.


I'm on Firefox 81.0 (64-bit) Linux Mint. But I've had this problem for many versions now.

Frequently when on a website I will do a search, or try to print, and after issuing the command, FireFox just sits there and does nothing. I go to a different browser, log on to my account on the same website and it searches, prints or otherwise functions normally.

Here is an example where after hitting the search button on the website, FireFox sits and leave me a blank screen. Screen shot attached.

I have updated to the latest version of FireFox hoping that the problem would go away, but it persists. This is getting very frustrating, and since other browsers don't do this, it is drawing me away from Firefox, which I have used as my default browser for years.

Just a suggestion on getting update content information.

I do not enable automatic updates in order to maintain personal update control and to generally wait a few days to allow any bugs in the update to shake out [e.g 81.0.2 to fix the Twitter bug in 81.0.1 -- No biggie, small bugs can crop-up in any update in spite of Mozilla's commendable quality control]. When manually checking Firefox "About" to look at update status, the pop-up shows the current installed version, with a link to "What's new?" [Great idea, thanks]. Unfortunately, there is not a "What's new?" link beside the box to download a new update, thus one must do an on-line search for the related Release Note to determine the urgency/relevancy of doing the update.

Adding an additional "What's new?" would be an appreciated change -- Thanks and be well.

IMHO, the Hamburger menu should be the duplicate of the Menu bar. That way one could gain vertical display space by hiding the Menu bar. After all, the some of the Menu bar options are already duplicated, but not the ones I could use. Why not go all the way and let users gain the extra display space?

I'm creating a print stylesheet, and trying to use break-after: avoid to keep headings on the same page as the following paragraph, but it doesn't seem to work.

To investigate, I created a simple page with an

in between a number of paragraphs to that the <h2> printed as the last item on the page. I then added the following styles. @media print { h2 { break-after: avoid; } } I expected the heading to move to the next page, but nothing happened. So then I added the following: CSS: @supports (break-after: avoid) { .message { display: block; } } HTML:

break-after: avoid is supported.

When I refreshed the page, the message appeared. So is break-after supported or not, or is it not supported for paged media? Or if it is supported, what am I doing wrong? MDN suggests it's been supported since Firefox 65, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the compatibility table.

Thanks in anticipation. If this is the wrong forum to ask this question, perhaps somebody could direct me to the correct one.
