    @imdb I am no longer on portable. Joined the bandwagon.

    Yes I am on DDG but it is not only when searching, it also happens when opening up a bookmark etc.

    Quick question. Any idea how to make a website work with SSO from about:config? My old trick does not seem to be working.

    @Trooper
    in the address bar, type "about:support" (w/o quotes) and press enter. locate the "important modified preferences" section and copy and post your prefs here.

    @imdb Here you go. Keep in mind. I only changed a few things. So dunno if these are mostly default, or if my extensions are changing things up.

    i think it might have something to do with ff's new enhanced tracking protection feature. use custom etp and disable them all and see if it resolves your issue.

    Hi Wolfrun. I only had the Seach bar and NoScript Options working as its supposed to for a few hours as I couldn't stand Multiprocess, and end it up disabling it again. The gain with moving back to Firefox 79 is that with this version I can stream baseball as I am used to. For some reason I couldn't do it with ESR. I had thought that perhaps this was also caused by disabling MP, but I guess that's not the case. I was having many crashes the last few days I had ESR, thats the main reason I decided to move back to Stable. Hopefully I wont experience crashes with 79 .
    Yes, like Aspirin, it works well.

    Bo

    None here @imdb
    Yip, it's not an add-on, because issue persisted with no add-ons (all disabled, or new profile). Had tried the custom etp solution, no joy.

    Still think it's related to container (tabs) code; if right-click 'Open in New Private Window' works, it would appear to be so ...
    I enabled Container Tabs in FF (Cookie Autodelete prompts for it in General>Tabs), set each tab to open in new container, re-opened all pinned tabs, and my issue appears to have gone away.

    What are you supposed to notice with this change? I thought you meant the variable url size that shows at the bottom where the status bar used to be. I don't see anything changing.

    I must be dense. I just turned it off again and the change must be so slight that I don't notice anything. Maybe a picture?:confused:

    This list doesn't seem to show all modified preferences or additions, such as
    Code:
    extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled true > false
    (+) extensions.getAddons.showPane  > false

    Maybe Mozilla couldn't make all work so they used important :D I would have preferred it the other way around for trouble-shooting.

    You mean the drop-down that appears when you start typing in the URL bar?
    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see a big difference in the FF78.1 ESR drop-down from previous versions.
    except for the width being used.

    megabar.png

    browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests [true] just turns off the drop-down for me. I was confused with the expresion fat URL bar

    you're already using the old url bar. that's why you don't see any difference.
