Drop-down menu of Firefox address bar Sporatically stops working

I had this problem for about a year and some parts of the year are worse than others, and now, according to the latest update of Firefox, this problem is at its absolute worst.

The drop-down menu in the address bar of Firefox sometimes stops displaying my newest and popularly seen the websites that I have visited. Whenever I have updated Firefox, the problem goes away and he used to stay at the gap to end of weeks in a row, but now the drop stops working almost whenever I close Firefox after this last update a few days earlier.

This problem persists in the Mode of Firefox safe and apparently appears randomly any plugins/extensions I can I have installed/enabled.

I am at a complete loss here and would appreciate any help because this drop in the address bar is one of my favorite features in any browser, and it becomes annoying to have to reinstall the plugins more (when I use the Sync feature to reinstall the plugins, the problem is even worse).

For problems with the file places.sqlite (bookmarks, historical) database, you can check in the Firefox profile folder.

If the extension of Maintenance of places cannot repair the database places.sqlite file remove all places.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder to rebuild the database places.sqlite latest JSON Firefox backup in the folder bookmarkbackups.

  • I want to delete search suggestions in the drop down menu in the address bar.

    I've just updated Firefox to 22.0 and now when I type something in the address bar, the menu drop-down displays search suggestions. I used to be able to type a letter or two from the site that I wanted to go to and just press enter and Firefox automatically I would have it if it was the first thing on the list. However, now it is more complicated because the search suggestions appear as well as elements in my story. Is there a way to delete these suggests research?

    I had the same problem. If you have not installed, the toolbar for swagbucks what you need to do is to click on the arrow to the right of the swagbucks icon and go to the "toolbar options". Under Advanced settings, there will be an option that says 'enable search suggestions in the address bar '. Make sure it is not selected, and your problem should be solved.

  • I want to delete search suggestions in the drop down menu in the address bar. I don't have swagbucks - is there another solution?

    I want to keep my bookmarks/history in the address bar, but delete the search suggestions that appear. These suggestions have barely started to appear last week, and they are boring and useless! Previous solutions have said that this is related to the swagbucks, but I have this installed (and don't know what it is). How can I remove the search suggestions, but keep my history and bookmarks?

    Make sure that you use the address bar and not the search bar.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    It seems that the number of entries in the drop-down list of the address bar is limited to twelve URLS. I would find it convenient that more than twelve years can be shown, but do not know how to increase the number.

    Increase or decrease browser.urlbar.maxRichResults using Subject: config

    NOTE: The FasterFox extension may affect the number of items displayed if you have it installed (addons > Extensions).

  • Firefox address bar does not work

    I recently updated my software Kaspersky of Kaspersky Internet Security Kaspersky Total security, 2015 at around the time that Firefox automatically updated from version 35 to 36. I don't know if the update of Kaspersky has nothing to do with the problem, but now the Firefox address bar does not work. I've 'come down' Firefox to version 35, but it still does not work.

    You can add a URL in a window of the Firefox window (Firefox or Google) search engine, and that works, like clicking on the hyperlinks that appear. But the address bar is totally dead! The address in my browser Google toolbar also works OK

    I hope that someone familiar with the operation of Firefox knows how to solve this frustrating problem as I prefer Firefox Google.

    Thanks for the help.

  • Is there an extension that will show you the list drop down bookmarks in the location bar?

    I wish the menu drop-down arrow in the address bar to show my favorites instead of show what I typed recently. I use the menu drop-down to go to my most visited sites, so this would be the prefect. Is there an extension that will do this, or something similar?

    You can change a setting: Options > privacy > section of the address bar, change of "bookmarks"; which will display only your bookmarks.

  • Address bar doesn't work does not and is not AutoComplete. Places.SQLite file is not damaged.

    Since the last update, Firefox 49 and 50, the address bar has stopped working. First of all, it would not be before semi-automatic with my browsing history, and now he's not let me even in Web sites. I checked the places.sqlite file and it is not corrupt. I also tried to disable hardware acceleration, but it does nothing more. However, I started Firefox in safe mode and it works very well. What should be the problem here?

    Hi, because it works in Mode safe, pointing to an add-on or theme that is not compatible.

    Start Firefox normally, and then disable any topic and the modules one by one until you find the culprit - Manager of modules additional (Ctrl + Shift + A) > appearance/Extensions. You may need to restart Firefox after you disable some of them.

  • Address bar no longer works with the manually entered URL

    Four days ago the address bar has stopped working. I'm used to manually enter several URLs and pressing "enter", but although I can still enter URL as usual, key 'enter' not charge not the page in question, or the green at the end of the address bar arrow does.

    Create a new profile as a test to see if your profile is the source of the problems.

    See "basic troubleshooting: a new profile:

    There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "tools > Modules > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.

    If this new profile works then you can transfer files from the old profile to the new profile, but make sure not to copy corrupted files.


  • My drop down menu changed search bar

    Everything I see that I get help on the search bar in the upper right corner shows the emblem of a little search engine. I don't have much, and I can't get it back. Worse still, when I start typing, I search point that I must now address a long list of terms of indefinable query from nowhere!

    I don't know how I changed all form the way it had been forever. I want to just my little drop down menu with a few indicators of search engine to this topic, and I just want to see my previous research, not what is trendy!

    Hi relem, I have already explained the reasoning behind the change: it is now much faster and easier to use different search engines that your browser by one on a wide base. If you want to do in the old search bar, you must first define a different engine in the search bar, search & then switch back (because the default value is also used in the address/home/new tab bar). It's a simple click!

  • The drop down menu boxes that appear under the heading of Firefox do not fill. A form of box on the screen, but it is empty. Given zero no has not solved the problem.

    The file, editing, display and help tabs that were on the previous version of FireFox Menu bar top are apparently incorporated into the "FireFox" drop-down box in the latest version of the browser. I was unable to open those tabs earlier, so by the recommendation of the Support Forum, I have Firefox on my laptop. Now not only the tabs above are missing after this reset, but the drop down menu does not open in any submenus. What I see now is a box on the surrounded black screen, but sub menu selections such as save as, print, copy etc are not shown in the box. This is why the Navigator is not functional in its current state.
    Does anyone have a fix for this problem that will not delete my favorites and other content stored on Firefox? Please save me to return to Internet Explorer.

    Try disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • How to make the menu drop-down list with a scroll bar


    I have a drop-down list that is filled with different table sizes.

    I have a size of 30-element array.  Some of the last items just go off the screen at the bottom of the Simulator PB.

    Is it possible for me to add a drop-down scroll bar?

    DP = new DropDown();
    dp.rowHeight = 24;
    DP.prompt = "stuff";
    DP. Height = 34;
    DP.width = 230;
    DP.x = TitleTB.x + 170;
    DP.y = Title.y-3;
    addChild (dp);

    Some of the tables look like this-

    case 'List 1':
    dp.rowCount = 2;
    for (var i: int = 0; i<2;>
    DPP.splice (0);
    else if (i == 1) {}
    dp.dataProvider = new DataProvider (dpp);
    addChild (dp);

    case "List2":
    dp.rowCount = 30;
    for (var n: int = 0; n<30;>
    DPP.splice (0);
    Else if (n == 1) {}


    Delete the existing table using splice (0);

    then I add the new array of labels.

    Before, when I didn't have the splice (0), I only had the .unshift () and sometimes got bays combined together and a scroll bar appears automatically in the Simulator.  But then the berries were mixed.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hey mlin13,

    from the looks of it, your property rowCount is set too high. the rowCount property represents the number of lines displayed on the screen when the drop down menu is open. so if the number of rows is less than the amount of items on the list, it will create a scroll bar with a drop-down list for you. try to set the number of lines to a default value of 10 and and keep it manipulate your list from there. and see if you get the desired results. Good luck!
