Simply put, I do not want to use the address bar for searching. I've tried every remedy I've been able to find on the internet and none work. I've used Firefox for years, but if I can't deactivate this feature I'll have to go elsewhere.

I'm using Windows 10.

Thanks.

I am using Firefox Browser 89.0(x64), I noticed that my startpage was constantly alterated to "https://start.firefoxchina.cn", everytime I set to defalut (which is about:home), it would return "https://start.firefoxchina.cn" automatically, what behavior is that?

I am running the latest version [89.0 (64-bit)] and I have 7 extensions enabled and I "had" a custom theme. Now I have nothing and do not know when they all disappeared but believe it was in the past 10 days. I verified that all the extensions are activated.

I reviewed the customizer but none of my extensions were ever listed there. How do I find and restore them?

Just updated My "MALWARE" the Anti-malware software application. It asked me if I wanted to enable some software artificial intelligence see everything know everything help with everything feature I clicked learn more then could not go back to question page. I DO NOT WANT TO grant such permission, I have looked thru "Malware's" settings and cannot find it. Iit starts, I believe, with the letters "Ge" and is one word, (Gestation?...dont know). Firefox was supposed to have a problem with it and warn me but I rebooted and Firefox said nothing. How do I find this feature in "malware the app" and disable-kill it? I never authorized it but I did not have a chance to say no eithersay no either. Signed: Freaked out

Having read through previous threads on side bar spacing of bookmarks I can't find a solution.

Basically I want to reduce the spacing on the side bar so I can see more bookmarks. Please see enclosed image. Is there an easy way of doing this. I did this some time ago using a Chrome ccs file but I can't remember how and if this works on the latest version of Firefox.

Many thanks Adrian.

Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

I have very recently upgraded to Version 89.0 (Windows 10) and I can't help but wonder why some key characteristics have been changed for the worse. The display format for the Bookmarks list is now spaced so large that my Bookmarks no longer fit on a single screen, and I can find no adjustment available to users. Also, the new tab screen no longer shows the image of the page, making the display less useful. What was broken in these features that Mozilla found a need to "fix" them? Is there anything a user can do to "undo" these changes?

For starters, I want to type my search in the larger, lower search bar, but more often than not, what I'm typing shows up in the smaller search bar that is higher up on the page and not on the bar where I'm typing. That is annoying.

But even more annoying: whenever I start to type what I want to look for, a drop-down menu appears with lots of suggestions for me, and those suggestions hide the lower search bar. As soon as I type one letter, the drop-down menu appears with lots of guesses about what I want. I don't want suggestions cluttering up my page ~~ I just want to type without all of that clutter. I'd leave an added image, but it won't let me take a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Is there any way for me to disable the drop-down menu with suggestions? I HATE IT! Just let me type what I want to find!

I'm completey reliant on bookmarks and tabs and would love to see the screen appear as it did yesterday. Please help. Windows 10.

I am constantly reloading tabs because I need to use the TotalSuspender addon to control 40+ concurrent tabs across 8 browser windows. With this new update, the Reload Tab option in the tab context menu has changed to New Tab (which is useless to me as I need to use the + menu to access containers). How can I edit this context menu and simply remove the New Tab option?
