I had to reinstall Windows recently. For some reason, Firefox no longer seems to keep me logged in to Lastpass and Pushbullet. More than half of the time I load a new session, Lastpass will give me a cookies notice but does remember my details in the fields, whereas Pushbullet shoves a login screen in my face and I have to go through the hassle of signing in with Google.

My browser has always been set to erase everything on close, but this has never effected extensions, so I'm surprised it suddenly does so. I don't think my settings are any different than they have been previously. I've tried making the lastpass and pushbullet websites as exceptions and playing with various privacy settings but am unable to replicate the 'correct' behaviour I had before.

Am I missing something here please? Has something changed in recent versions of Firefox?

Settings are: Standard tracking protection Always do not track Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed is checked with Lastpass.com and Pushbullet.com as exceptions All options under 'Logins and passwords' unchecked Always use private browsing mode, remember browsing and download history, and remember search and form history are all unchecked Clear history when firefox closes is checked, and in settings, all boxes are checked

Some days ago I noticed a change in the outfit of the firefox basic website: It concerns the upper menue-line. There is still in the right upper corner the `x ´ , the sign for closing the page.( note the red flash in my picture!) But I am missing the `-´ and the square sign, with which I can hide and open a hidden page. So I don´t know, how to switch between several pages, i.e., I can´t make dissappear this page, in order to use the translation page.

Even in safe mode, I cannot make a change to my default search engine stick; it always reverts to DuckDuckGo.

After changing the default search engine in Preferences->Search to, say, Ecosia Search, typing a space character in the address+search bar goes from a generic world favicon to DuckDuckGo. Restarting with a cleared cache doesn't help.

None of my addons are related to search except Ecosia Search. Even with Ecosia Search removed, I get the same behavior, the default search engine reverts to DuckDuckGo. In any case, safe mode with all addons disabled doesn't change that behavior.

If i remove DuckDuckGo from the list of search engines, I cannot search at all and I cannot choose a default search enigne from the drop down list in Preferences->Search.

Note that I can always choose an alternate search engine in the drop down search menu, and that works. Setting a default search engine doesn't work.

Any suggestions on how to make a search engine other than DuckDuckGo be my default search engine would be appreciated. As a bonus, an explanation of why I'm having this difficulty would be wonderful.

TIA.

When opening Firefox, a window opens with menus and toolbars visible, but nothing loads or opens up when navigating the application. No websites are loading, no menus are opening such as options or add-ons, and not even the mozilla landing page is loading. I have tried doing a "Refresh". I have tried doing a clean reinstall. I have run virus scans to see if malware was preventing it from opening websites. I am having no issues with other browsers, just Mozilla Firefox. I am unsure what to do if even a Firefox reinstall is not working. The application wont even let me enable/disable add ons to see if that may be causing the problem.

Hello everyone, I'm working on customizing the Firefox experience for users within my organization.

I have to really limit their access. One of those requests were to prevent users from minimizing their active Firefox window.

I've found articles like the one below that show how to hide all the buttons: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

However it does not suit the purpose. since it removes all of them and only on full screen.

Is there a way I can just hide the minimize button so that the user can just hide the minimize button?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

HP1320 laser printer. Win 7 / 64 bit. HP printer driver.

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

Whenever I open an Instagram profile or anything on that site the Back button will be greyed out as if the current (instagram) site was the first site that I visited in the current window or tab. No matter how many navigation moves and page/site changes I made previously in the same window/tab, it all just vanishes and I can't go back!

It happened that I worked with an online workbook for classes that I have a subscription for. By mistake I pressed a keyboard shortcut (regrettably I don't remenber it, otherwse I would simply repeat the shortcut), and the content turned by 90 degrees. But not all of the content. The toolbar of the workbook ist still in the same position as it should be.

My suspicion is that the workbook simply is a PDF and that only the embedded PDF turned but not the whole browser window? Has anybody an idea of what to do?

Thank you!

Here's all I want. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I start Mozilla Firefox I want it to open with three tabs... ❶ https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/reference/unicode.htmlhttps://messages.google.com/web/conversations

From then on, when I click on the home button, I only want the tab/page I'm viewing to switch to this page... https://www.goese.com/favorites/index.htmlhttps://www.goese.com/favorites/index.html

Is Firefox capable of doing this? (Chrome is, but got WAY too slow recently...to a point I couldn't take it anymore.) Right now if I use those three pages for startup, the home button opens a new session in all three pages, which makes no sense to me. I need to be able to specify different & separate pages for "startup" and "home." I'm old so I'm probably just looking at the interface wrong.

Thanks!

Everytime I start up Firefox Nightly in fully maximized. The tab area as you can see in the picture provided shows like that all kinda glitched out in the tab area until I either move firefox around again or remaximize firefox to fix it. It only happens when firefox is left maximized when I close it and then reopen the browser but doesnt happen when it's not maximized. I hope we can figure this issue out and sorry if it's not in the right topic. I'm thinking it has something maybe to do with the skeleton UI thing? It doesn't happen on any other version of Firefox.

I realize Firefox is free, so I should not complain, but why oh why has Mozilla changed the Firefox print interface in Version 86? Print Preview has gone. The controls are on the wrong side. It now resembles Google Chrome, which is just horrendous! Half the options are hidden so it takes twice as long to do what one wants to do. The interface is much more clumsy. I could go on. How do I reverse this? I cannot work with it! I uninstalled v86 and installed v85, and the horrendous print layout is still there!! Thanks in advance

And why is Firefox feebback page no longer working?
