Under Tools>Options>Privacy and security, Bookmarks under address bar is checked, but It still doesn't work. I have to type the whole thing in. For example, if I want to go to www.google.com, I can just type in 'goo' and the rest would be highlighted in blue, and I can press enter. This stopped working, the rest won't show up highlighted in blue anymore, how can I fix this?

Select bookmark with single letter search

In the past, I have been able to get to bookmarks on the bookmark dropdown menu by hitting the key that corresponds to the first letter of the bookmark. For example, to get to a bookmark starting with "b", I hit the B key on the keyboard and the first bookmark starting with B is highlighted. Hit it again and the next one starting with B is highlighted. After the last one, loop back to the first one.

That no longer works. Hitting B now stops on "Bookmark This Page", and depending on the time between key hits, it will also stop on "Bookmark All Tabs...". It will not go to any other lines on the menu. Now, to get to "Bank", I hit C followed by up arrow.

Also, behavior is erratic in that sometimes it will stop on a line that does not match the key being hit.

In documenting this, I just discovered that if I type "ba" it will go to BANK. That will help for now. I hope this can be fixed in the future.

This is not a new phenomenon, neither is the thread. But I have not found in here a real solution. I mean they all suggest to delete all the "places" files from FF profile, restart in Safe mode etc. I have enough of this. I have done it in the past and I do it again and it doesn't solve the problem. That's why I am here with the same issue, actually **UNSOLVED**

I give you an example proving that the problem is idependent of "places":

1) I type 'ishow.gr' in the Address bar 2) I enter the site 3) I go back to the previous page 4) I start typing 'is..." 5) No autocomplete

It's as simple as that. And this did not happen in the past (before Firefox Quantum).

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).

I just want my address bar to show the URLS i typed. I don't want it to show any suggestions when I type something I don't want any search results. Just to keep the urls I have typed.

I have turned off suggestions but that doesn't keep the typed in URL.

I have done the about:config thing about rich results and stuff but that also removes ALL the urls.

In general I just want it to say

yahoo.com netflix.com facebook.com whateveriwant.com

and not all the other pages I frequent.

For example, I moderate a FB group and I'm constantly on that page. I don't want that page showing up on my bar. I have delete it by the highlight delete button but is that a permanent solution?

Anyway, I just want a simple URL bar back.
