I have checked this problem in the forum and the answers are all 3 years old and the about:config no longer contains the items they say to fix as described.

When I click in the search box to start to type a search, a drop down menu appears showing several other search engines. All of which I removed as alternates in the "One Click" search engine Options.

I do not want Firefox offering anyone an option to use another Search engine.

Can this drop down menu be disabled ?

The forum solution fixes, for this situation, no longer apply to the current version of Firefox

Thanks

John

jscher2000,

"Do you mean search engines appear even before you start typing anything to search?"

Yes, as soon as i bring the cursor to the Search box. the drop down box appears.

I opened my Home page and all of the boxes under Firefox Home Content I had unclicked during set up.

My home page is set to blank page and New Tabs the same.

I turned them back on to do as you described but the three dots never appeared in the corner and everything remained the same so i turned them off again.

Thanks for trying to help.

The whole system was only set up recently, so I'm not sure if the issue has been happening since Firefox was installed, but it is possible.

I've narrowed it down to MP4s being the issue, which as the relevant help articles state should be decoded by the OS. No problems watching the videos in Microsoft Edge for example.

Console gives:

   HTTP "Content-Type" of "video/mp4" is not supported [...]
   Cannot play media. No decoders for requested formats: video/mp4

or

   Specified "type" attribute of "video/mp4" is not supported

etc.

Same result when disabling all addons. Windows Media Player etc. installed and working.

Only the first (MPEG) video on the following test page doesn't work for example: https://tekeye.uk/html/html5-video-test-page

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately I just did a refresh to Firefox and even more unfortunately I had no idea that fixing a slow opening of Firefox would erase all my very valuable bookmarks that I really need! There should be warnings posted as to what a refresh will really do before being allowed to click on the refresh button.

I have tried following videos on you tube to restore my bookmarks, but they are hard to follow and I have had no luck with them. I need a step by step video process with audio instructions so I can retrieve said bookmarks!

Please, any help will be greatly appreciated !!! Thanks, D.

For years, I've clicked on PDFs online and they've opened in a browser window. Then, if I wanted a copy, I downloaded it. Suddenly, this doesn't happen. It doesn't open, it just goes straight to download. I've changed no settings. Other browsers open the PDFs in question. What happened and how do I fix it. I'm running Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) on a 2017 iMac running 10.14.6. Thanks.

I receive the above message on quite a few sites. I run Bitdefender Internet Security and I worked with them to see if their program was the problem. I disconnected all the program's components and I still received the same message on sites. Finally, I uninstalled Bitdefender and tried to log in with it. I received the same message and Bitdefender support team suggested that it must have something to do with Firefox.

Links opening in bing---new laptop, windows 10, fire fox, google browser. No problems except when I'm on a webpage and click a link (opens in new tab), it opens in bing. bing is not enabled as search engine. I have no add ons except ublock. It's only a link problem, all other searching, new tabs etc work fine with fire fox and google. Is it related to the origin of the link? I'm an amateur.

I have been using Firefox ESR 52.9.0 (32bit) on my Windows XP computer for some time now and a while back there was a problem with security certificates. They issued a special patch for the ESR version so we could continue to use Firefox. It would appear that this problem has somehow reappeared. Can we please get a patch once again to clear up this issue.

Thanks

I can't send troubleshooting information because I can't even connect to the Mozzilla website on my XP computer. I had to send this request from a different computer

I created a new Drupal 8 site on my Mac (MacOS 10.15.5), using MAMP to test locally. I'd been using a self-signed SSL certificate, and yesterday purchased a Comodo PositiveSSL Multi-Domain (DV) cert. The site comes up fine in Safari and Chrome with the new cert, but Firefox (78.0.2) is still looking at the cold cert. I've tried clearing all caches, clearing the history cache, even rebooting; nothing seems to help. Is the old one being cached somewhere?
