1. Search bar doesn't work for search. If i type anything, i.e. "firefox", it opens firefox.com 2. Settings > Search reveals that I have no search engines, and nothing is selected as a default search engine. 3. "Restore default search engines" does nothing 4. Removing all files related to word "search" in root directory does nothing, still has no search engines after restart. 5. Switching to new profile does work, default search engines appear and search bar is working fine. 6. As soon as I sign in my account and sync starts, profile loses all search engines and search bar stops working.

I believe my firefox sync account is syncing 0 search engines to my browser, and I can't add new search engines. I have Manjaro Linux and a Windows machine, both with firefox but using different versions. Both browsers lost all search engines after sync.

I'm currently in my vacation home and I don't have home internet here. I'm connecting through my mobile phone using limited mobile data. and I selected not to download updates because it keeps updating itself like twice in a week and every MB counts in limited data plans especially if it's just 4 GB total for each month.

But now every time I open the firefox it showing download latest update popup like an annoying virus on the top right corner where 3 horizontal lines are located.

I checked the internet and previously this was an option in it's settings. Then this option removed and only hidden behind the about:config . and now it's completely removed from about:config either.

The only reason I switched from chrome to firefox was because google became an absolute dictator lately and all it's changes was to limit down my accessibility. I switched to firefox becuse it doesn't backstab it's users and they give the choice to it's users rather than dictating it like dictators. So did I make a mistake switching to firefox? Is firefox becoming just like chrome now? or is there (hoping so much) and option given us to turn off the notifications as well?

When we open Mozilla Firefox for 1st time, it asks for Master (Primary Password).

Once we enter the correct password, then it accepts it.

After couple of minutes or 1 hour later, it prompts again and again.

Very inconvenient to keep entering the password again & again if it is already entered once & window has not been closed.

Seems like a bug, please resolve it.

So, first off, Firefox is my favorite browser. I love it a lot. I'm also a pretty big supporter of Free and Open-Source Software.

With that said, I was wondering when and if Firefox will fully support ICC V4 profiles and the PNG specification.

I noticed that ICC V4 is not enabled by default, but even after setting gfx.color_management.enablev4 to true and setting gfx.color_management.mode to 1, ICC V4 is still not working properly.

You can test this yourself here: https://littlecms.com/blog/2020/09/09/browser-check/

Also, I noticed that PNG images of large sizes won't display at all in Firefox, resulting in a broken image icon.

You can test this yourself here: https://www.jwz.org/blog/2018/07/png-antics/

These seem to work at least passably well in other browsers, but I don't want to use other browsers! Does anyone know if Mozilla will fix these sometime? I do know that Little CMS is open-source under the permissive MIT license, so maybe Firefox could use that to fix the ICC V4 problem, if that could help. I don't know if using the latest version of libpng will help the other problem, but I know it is under a rather permissive BSD-style license.

I'm using Firefox 90.0.2 in case anyone is wondering.

This problem is fairly old, yet it doesn’t seem to have been addressed. I’m just bringing it up again to see if anyone from Mozilla has any insights on how that bug might be fixed.

It is clearly a bug as it has happened to a number of people on all Apple devices for well over a year. I’m afraid restarts, data clearing, etc. are not the answers.
