I belong to some Google Groups forums and today I went to one to search for something I had posted last year and there was no search box at the top. Well, it's there when the page first appears, but then it disappears right away. When I try Chrome, the search box is there and works. I don't much like Chrome and FF is my default browser. This is Version 76.0.1, using Windows 7. Please help.

Have you tried starting Firefox in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
If no improvement using Safe Mode, do you have the same problem if you create a new profile and test it with no extensions or non-default themes installed?

It seems this is a quirk with the new Firefox because Chrome doesn't do it. However I found a workaround by using a different link from the footer of emails from the Group and that does not disappear the search box.
