This is a new feature that has just appeared, but I don't need it (it's indicated in a red box in the attached screenshot). However, it takes up space on the bookmarks pop-up window. I suppose it's a sign that I need to clean and organize my bookmarks, but I still would prefer to turn it off so it doesn't appear in the pop-up. I'm using Firefox 49.0b1 on a 2013 MacBookPro running OS 10.10.5 Thanks!

I had a bookmark saved (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/925973) that explained how to move the tabs toolbar back to the traditional location below the bookmarks toolbar. it said:

You can change this preference manually until someone figures out where it has moved in the UI.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the filter box, type or paste tabs and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click browser.tabs.onTop to switch it from true to false to move the tabs below the toolbars.

Now, browser.tabs.onTop no longer appears in the list.

How does one go about this operation now? I am much more comfortable with the tabs immediately above the window associated with the tab than the newer default of the tabs toolbar (in my case) 3 rows up from the window. I have the navigation, menu, and bookmarks all turned on.

Recently refreshed Firefox, only to discover that after refresh that ALWAYS ASK no longer works.

I think my settings are correct, all the more so after refresh.

I have reverted to temp fix by reinstalling DOWNLOAD THE ALL ad-on, which cures the problem, but if this add-on is removed or disabled, as in safe mode, ALWAYS ASK no longer works and I I see is the "short form" save/open dialog box.

Other users have reported to me that for them, ALWAYS ASK works in safe mode, but it certainly doesn't for me. So what should I do? Refresh again? Wait for next update? Do a clean install and start everything over again from scratch?

Thanks!

OK, so what in the heck is going on ..... !?

it seems like ever since a few MS patch Tuesdays a while ago my Firefox'es are now acting like crap ..... I'm getting constant crashes and restarts! I can't even run it on some machines at home now so I have to use chrome because flash stuff keeps barfing ....

I'm also getting this constant crap where its asking me where it keeps asking me if I want to allow all of my add-in's - constantly!! (see attachment) It opens multiple tabs across the top for each of my add-in's - "oh do you want to allow this" - well DUH - WTF ?? - I added them in for a reason!!!

I am getting so pissed with Firefox I've even resorted to added Chrome on to all of my systems, Booo!

It used to be a good stable browser, why is it screwing up the same way on 5 different PC's? Yes, you can tell from my tone that it's driving me nuts!!! It almost feels like MS did something in the last few batches in Patch Tues to deliberately screw up Fire fox!!

Is anyone else seeing this .....?

Firefox problems with kaspersky internet security

"KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2016 DISABLED BY FIREFOX jscher2000 Nov 2, 2016, 4:05:56 AM

Hi boldeagle, Firefox can't disable your Kaspersky security software, only the add-ons that Kaspersky adds to Firefox. And if you have one of the more recent updates for the 2016 version, they got rid of several of their older extensions and are installing a new one that definitely should be signed and verified.

Could you share with us your current list of enabled and disabled extensions? The simplest way is to view the full list on the troubleshooting information page. Either:

   "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
   (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
   type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter/Return

Then scroll down to Extensions and just below that heading, select the table with your mouse and copy it (either Ctrl+c or right-click > Copy), then paste it into a reply (either Ctrl+v or right-click > Paste). It will look a bit messy, but we're used to it. Thanks."

Here is the screen (unfotunately is in Italian..............)

Estensioni Nome Versione Attiva ID Adblock Plus 2.8.1 true {d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d} Kaspersky Password Manager 3.8.8 true kpm_win_add_on@kaspersky Kaspersky Protection 4.6.2-42-20160922074409 true light_plugin_D772DC8D6FAF43A29B25C4EBAA5AD1DE@kaspersky.com Multi-process staged rollout 1.3 true e10srollout@mozilla.org Pocket 1.0.4 true firefox@getpocket.com Video DownloadHelper 6.1.1 true {b9db16a4-6edc-47ec-a1f4-b86292ed211d} Web Compat 1.0 true webcompat@mozilla.org Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF 1.0 false web2pdfextension@web2pdf.adobedotcom

Following this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

When I put the contents of my backup profile in a newly created profile or the initial profile, set firefox to load that profile automatically, and load firefox, it doesn't see anything from the backup. profiles.ini is set to use that profile.

Even if I delete every profile and create a new one, it doesn't see the stuff from the backup.

What can I look into to figure out why this isn't working? Is there some kind of settings file?
