I'm using Firefox 68.0.1 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5. When I go full screen, the tabs and address bar remain at the top of the screen. I can't make them go away. I've tried:

- Installing plugins (I tried a couple) - Disabling Add-ons (Safe mode) - Resetting Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration (and restart browser) - Using different techniques to go full screen (Cmd+Shift+F, Cmd+Ctrl+F, Zoom menu) - Scrolling or clicking in the canvas to ensure focus

No matter what, the tab bar and address bar remain on the screen (see attached screenshot). I've also attached my browser config (filtered on "full"). Is there any way to get a full-screen experience in Firefox?

I would like to make a bookmark file with all the tabs in all the open windows, organised by window. The final goal is to be able to open all Firefox windows with all their respective tabs in another browser, like Vivaldi; alternatively, to time stamp various such bookmark files, and open all the window with all their tabs I had open in Firefox, say, 8 months ago. Please have a look at the screenshot attached: it seems that the menu button Bookmarks → Bookmarks All Tabs makes bookmarks only of the tabs of the upper-most window. Thank you for any help.

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

Hot keys, key combos etc. I write email, mash small keys on laptop, email gone. Get huffy. Just no. Can you FOCUS the whatever so that all hot keys etc are DISABLED.

I would write something offensive in Russian right here but my Russian is very bad. Sorry. ( It will get better one day)

To wrap up.

Where is the FIREFOX complaints department!!!

Created New Firefox Account Instead of Linking Old Mozilla Account-What Steps To Take?

Please answer each question separately:

Even though Google is my default search engine, I have selected the remaining 6 default options under 'One Click' Search Engines.

When I type a letter, it brings up searches for my default Google but the icons for the other search engines are in the bottom left corner.

1. Am I supposed to click on one of the icons to bring up a search for that particular search engine OR is my address bar search supposed to show searches for all seven search engines?

2. When 'Never Remember History' is selected, am I still able to select the 'One Click Search Engines' that will automatically be displayed the next time that 'Remember History' is selected OR can I only choose the one-click search engine options when 'Remember History' is selected?

3. Before signing into my old account, I noticed that users have to create a new Firefox account, even if they have an existing account, so that is what I did-Is that what I was supposed to do?

4. With this new account, will I automatically receive an email notification when someone responds to my thread?

5. Periodically, when signing in with my new account, I receive a 'Bad Request 400' message. Other times, I am able to sign in but the top right corner does not show me as signed in so I have to sign in again; Are these known glitches?

I use multiple tabs when running Firefox (usually 7). My computer system says the processing speed is 1.60 GHz w/3GB (2.75GB) that is 64 bit. I have Ghostery & Noscript as extensions, a Firefox theme & Shockwave 32/OpenH264/Widevine Content Decryption Module as add ons. I just need to know whether my computer processor will work with this version of Firefox or not. Thank you for keeping it simple & for any answers I may receive.

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

about:mozilla brings up a series of Bible mockery "verses". Wiki tells me it is an old old thing with Mozilla. And it was used as Easter egg thing in the early days of Mozilla, which really doesn't matter to me, it is an offense to Christians. Imagine these days if I go on mocking homosexuals or black people?!

Why keep this? Christians should take offense at this. Very distasteful!! So distasteful I am considering dropping mozilla's "beast browser".

Six month ago my bank went from a one page to a two page login. The help you gave me six months ago solved the problem. Now the bank has changed back again to a one page login. Two days ago the response you gave me I marked as Solved when I deleted the saved ID and password and Firefox loaded the new ID and Password. I thought that would fix the problem. That was premature. I should have tried logging in to my bank, because it still isn't loading the password. The password field is set to Fill Password.

P.S. And I don't need another responses from some sarcastic SOB who cant read or think clearly and who sends me a NO-Reply Email that I can't respond to.

The "ghost" caret also appears when I'm pressing left or right arrow keys to move the caret. It seems to be white, even when the real caret is black on white background. It is easily seen when a text field background is a dark color. It appears for about one frame, my screen refresh rate is 60Hz.

It doesn't seem to be a "fake" caret or merely a graphical element. When I'm editing a field of text, eg. in Google Docs, I've occasionally started editing or selecting text one character to the right. Like as if in that split second I just happened to send the keystroke when the ghost caret appeared. But because it was so brief, it is near impossible to replicate.

I've tried Firefox in safe-mode and there was no ghost caret. So I removed all add-ons/extensions, but the ghost caret still appears even if I have no extensions installed, which is why it's so baffling. I've refreshed and re-installed Firefox, both didn't work.

This "ghosting" only happens in Firefox, not in IE nor Chrome.

I used a screen capturing software and recorded this problem, then extracted a frame from the video to show the real caret and ghost caret side by side. Hope this better illustrates what I'm seeing. I have Dark Reader activated so the ghost caret can be easily seen. If Dark Reader isn't activated, it would be impossible to see due to the white background.

I do most of my work on cloud based platforms so this ghosting is very annoying and distracting. Or worse, could it be a keylogger or malicious program causing this?

Please help, Thank you!

No I said the bank used, passed tenth, a two page login then they changed to a one page login. (you stupidly misread my problem on the first go around)

I checked the fields. Both have the Fill field indicated.

The saved login information is all there and correct. However the password field is not being filled.
