    Anyone else using the beta version of Firefox having to enter the site name more than once?

    I have mine set on blank, then start typing in TenForums. I'm a really fast typist, so the moment the name comes up, I hit Enter. Up until this newest beta (I'm now on 65.0b5) I've had no problems, but now, when I start TenForums, it auto completes and I hit Enter, most of the time, I have to go back and start typing the name again!

    Hit T; up pops tenforums.com/; hit Enter; goes back to a blank site address. I've tried slowing myself down but that's not easy to remember and besides, it doesn't always work; I still have to start the process all over.

    This is getting so hard to deal with that I'm thinking maybe I should go back to 64.

    I did the update to Firefox 64 yesterday. I like this new Firefox Task Manager. I think this is the first "new" feature that Firefox has implemented in many years that I find some real usefulness for my personal case use of the browser. Right away, after doing the update, I went and tested the impact of using and not using NoScript when visiting websites that are loaded with content that is not needed for doing anything that's important. I used NoScript for about 10 years, the only extension I use, and I am a big fan of it. For me is easy to tell the impact of using or not using NoScript is huge when visiting this type of sites, but I never used any tool to confirm the difference or to gauge that difference. But now we have the Task manager that can be used for that purpose.

    Using cbssports, a site I visit everyday is a good website to use as an example to show the difference in impact in the browser when using or not using NoScript. I like cbssports but is a horrendous site, loaded with some much garbage that you need something like NoScript to clean it up. Look, first picture, watching a video with NoScript On, and only allowing to run the content thats required for the video to play, the impact is Medium 5.37. And no trackers, etc. The second picture, with NoScript Off, everything runs, watching same video, impact is high 91.75. Trackers running, and etc.

    Yeah, I've always had that unchecked, too. . .

    Couple more apparent "new" things (features I guess) ??

    I don't think I have ever seen this before, and it was auto checked (default) ?

    Under Network Settings, I do not recall seeing this ?

    It was auto un-checked (default) ?

    One more thing, has anybody ever figured out this setting. . . I've fooled with it some, but I'm not sure I notice a difference ?

    Every thing seems to work really good, though. . . ? .

    @Wynona I'm not getting that at all, everything normal on FF beta5 here.
    It fixed itself, Doogie. And I don't have a clue as to why it was doing it in the first place or what happened to fix it.

    Firefox puts lovely logo on the New Tab page, provided you only show Search Bar in settings...
