This issue drives me nuts. On Firefox for Android, when I'm typing something in the address bar, if I accidentally touch the gesture area that's right below the keyboard (under the spacebar), the address bar gets cleared and everything I just typed disappears. This could be after typing an entire series of words for a Google search. I'm REALLY sick of having to retype everything whenever this happens, which is frequently. I don't understand why this clearing behavior is even necessary.

So I got directed here after leaving an unfavourable review due to an ongoing issue that google had no answers for. The screenshot should show the problem. I don't not know what causes it, only that it feels random when it breaks. Cashe/data clearing doesn't help, only a full reinstall seems to fix it, but this gets annoying pretty quick. The issue is search boxes on websites become black, and the text looks weird. The only add-on I use is UBlock, and when I left the review, the app broke after just an hour after being reinstalled, before I even installed UBlock.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S20Ultra if that helps, though I'm due for an update, and haven't had the time to sort it.

After selecting Mozilla as my default browser, I tried to perform a search but the only page that loads is the page that wants you to download Mozilla on desktop and android, which I already have. Each time I've tried to do a search with Firefox this is the page that appears, no search results of any kind, but when I switch my search to duckduckgo and perform the search I get results. Can someone please help me understand why I can't perform a search using firefox?? Thank you in advance for your help!

I search for "desktop" and it returns "Web pages" "page" along with desktop. None of the 81 results answer the query, "what is the desktop site?" in settings. Why? Why return random words? Why don't Boolean operators work? Please tell me the trick to searching, it's becoming a daily routine.

When I tapped on the firefox widget on my phone this morning, it showed "google.com" in the address bar but the page was blank. I checked this on my wife's phone and my tablet and the exact same thing happens. I tried turning off my two add blockers to see if that would make a difference but it did not. I then uninstalled and reinstalled firefox on my phone from the Google Store and logged back in and it still acted the same way. For fun, I then turned on "Desktop site" in the menu and then my normal google.com page opened up. When I turned off 'desktop site', it went back to a blank screen with the "home" icon, the address bar, number of tabs open box and the 3 dots menu bar showing on top, but nothing else. I then opened my computer and works fine on my desktop. So, not sure what is happening but definitely some problem with "google.com" address on firefox (unless I toggle on "desktop site".) I also cleared my cache (which of course, was completely empty when I deleted and then added on the firefox app at the google store). Seems like might be a problem on your end? Especially since seems to happen on all four android devices that I have. I've also attached screenshots of the two pages I get, the first regular, the second with 'desktop site' toggled on.

If I visit a website that supports OpenSearch, how do I add it as a search engine?

The article Use gestures in Firefox for Android says I can long tap on a Web Address to add a site as a search engine: however on Android 10 this only gives me the standard "Open", "Cut", "Copy", "Paste", "Share", and "Read aloud".

Manage my default search engines in Firefox for Android has a section on adding a search engine, but it is cumbersome (manually adding the URL and "%s" for the query string). Plus it then lacks useful features of the OpenSearch standard, e.g. displaying an icon.

I just opened up Firefox on Android today and suddenly when trying to use autofill to visit my typical sites, it's changed what pops up first to very popular sites (a good chunk of which I don't frequent); microsoft.com instead of marvelousnews.com, office.com instead of oafe.com, stackoverflow.com instead of seibertron.com, twitter.com instead of toyark.com, bing.com instead of brickset.com, etc. I tried looking in the Search settings to see if something had been clicked on that wasn't before, but I couldn't find any culprit that actually changed this.

I keep trying Firefox browser once in a while for many reasons such a giving it a try to see the improvements, to give it a chance to become my daily driving browser but small niggles such as below doesn't give confidence to make it a default browser.

In website gsmarena.com on mobile Firefox browser when you type in search field, while website tried to dynamically show all matching phone models to a letter that you just typed, browser and keyboard just starts to lag and freeze before it can accept any further input of letter typing. Don't have this issue with other browsers.

Whenever I type "goo" into the address bar, it will prefill with "google.co.uk"

i haven't visited uk version of google in years and have been using .com forever

but recently firefox decided to offer me .co.uk version for some reason and now i always have to delete the prefill and type manually which is time consuming and annoying

i tried clearing history, deleted all history, removed app, reinstalled app, deleted cache and local data, logged out of my firefox account .. changed language to something other than English (UK) but it still thinks it needs to prefill the .co.uk URL

why did it go crazy all of a sudden and how do i make it stop?

Installed Firefox on Samsung Galaxy Flip3 5G cell telephone. Launch Firefox and Google search opens up. Cannot get rid of Google search in order to go to a website using Firefox. Able to type in the web address in Google search but it won't let me open the website through Google. How do I undo this Google mess and apply the correct settings? The only other option I've accidentally come across is a feature to select one of six search engines. Step-by-step would be appreciated because I am not an IT expert. BTW, I am typing this on a desktop PC.
