when using FF 50 - - who is getting the error:
"libavcodec may be vulnerable or is not supported,"
this is since last week, I'm receiving this message,
for almost every other page that I open in Firefox.

Are you using Linux?

A search tells that the error is occurring on Linux systems.

Is there a way to enhance url box?
I'd like to make it more like Vivaldi's... ha!
Actually, Vivaldi does a wonderful job and i haven't been able to imitate it with Firefox in that area. Perhaps someone has a tip?
Vivaldi shows url suggestions, history, bookmarks - in different shades or colors too.
I never liked Firefox history search nor have found any extension that can do a decent job like Vivaldi does.

Haven't looked at bug details, but that sure is a huge list of volunteer bug fixers!
Makes me appreciate this humble browser even more.
Truly impressive Anupam!

Wonder if they can help out with my garden...

firefox can show the three of them, but not sure about colors/shades (I can't see it them..)

under about:Config you can enable/disable the three browser.urlbar.suggest
