As per old thread at: https://support.mozilla.org/zu/questions/1365405 which has since been archived.

As of version 113, this solution is being suppressed. I occasionally see the x appear briefly on the left when a tab is selected, but then it reverts. So far I have not been able to work out what setting is overriding this function, so I've just rolled back to 112 and used the "--allow-downgrade" flag on the firefox shortcut so I can still load my old profile, but understand this is not a safe option in the long term.

I want to re-order the add-ons / extensions in the toolbar shared with the search bar. Customize toolbar only has functions/icons related to the operation of Firefox. I want to customize the extensions toolbar, but how?

In the add-ons page, I can remove, disable, or enable extensions, but I cannot change the order of them.

As an example, there is an add-on for my Firefox account that is leftmost in the bar of extension icons. I would like to move it all the way to the right. Again, how would I do that?

Thanks for your help.

I'm having a problem sharing websites with others via, for instance, Signal. Telegram, WhatsApp or a social medium. There used to be a share button in the toolbar, but this I cannot find anymore. At some time there were also the three dots in the address bar that dropped down a menu for the page, which included a 'share' option. These dots seem to have vanished. Also I vaguely remember that the "share" function was also in he tab context menu once upon a time. However dropping down that menu does not reveal any "share" function presently. Then there was, if I remember correctly, the possibility to click the File menu at the top of the screen and then click on the Share menu item over there. But also there the "share" function seems to have vanished. I also looked in the settings menu, to find if there is a setting there which switches on or off the sharing function. I could not find such a setting. In short, it seems that I am horribly overlooking the "share" function. Please help me find it. Thanks. (Firefox 112 for Manjaro Linux)

I'm now running in troubleshooting mode with NO extensions.

For weeks my drives have been churning and I've been running out of resource, seeing the hour glass, graying screen, etc.

I finally closed the windows with countless tabs, disabled some extensions, and it got better, but I still have problems, even in troubleshooting mode.

Task manager still shows phantom tabs. I had 4 tabs open, it showed 7, etc.

And strangely, I now see Kaperski Native Messaging with the tabs in task manager: https://www.file.net/process/plugin-nm-server.exe.html

Closed that. Have 7 tabs in one window, task manager shows 11 tabs.

Am so confused.

I was in italy when I first created my firefox account and by default it choose italian as language. All of my search results are in italian even though in browser settings I choose English as preffered language. Now I discovered that actually my firefox profile is in italian that's why I see results in italian. In the profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings), there is no option to change the language. Please help.

I just hooked up a new Windows 11 computer and installed Firefox, which has been my default browser for many years. I was irritated to discover after I synced with another computer that almost all the icons for my add-ons have disappeared with no apparent way to get them back. I NEED some of those icons and it makes absolutely no sense to have them gone. Before anyone suggests it I have checked where you customize the toolbar and none of them are there. I refreshed Firefox just in case it helped and of course it didn't. Checking online only results in finding other people with the same problem with no helpful answer. It's almost like Firefox is begging people to leave and go to another browser, which I probably would since I'm so irritated at this issue, but I'm not happy with any other browser. Firefox is the only one I've remotely been happy with, but the way it is right now I'll be pretty much unable to use Firefox on my new computer. At least I still have my icons on my Windows 10 laptop until I'm forced to upgrade to 11 but my new desktop just might end up Firefoxless unless I get a helpful answer.

After update to Firefox 113, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is no full size anymore.

Before update to Firefox 113 (version 112 or older), the width size is still normal: full size; like search-engine-textbox on Toolbar.

  • 5 screenshot:

[1]: Firefox 113, about version, link image: 1-About-version

[2]: Firefox 113, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Toolbar is full size, link image: 2-Search engine textbox - on toolbar - full width

[3]: Firefox 113, customize mode, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is now full size, link image: 3-Search engine textbox - on overflow menu - customize mode - full width

[4]: Firefox 113, after customize, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is no full size anymore. The width is so narrow, link image: 4-Search engine textbox - on overflow menu - after customize - narrow width

[5]: Firefox before 113, screenshot of another post (2022-may-04), the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is now still normal: full size.

Please review and restore the width setting, same as version 112 and earlier.

Thanks and best regards!

Hello,

When I close Firefox after the last update (current installed version: 112.0 x64 Windows 10), Firefox creates almost 200 processes (in the latest case 177), each using from 17 MB to 65 MB RAM (except one that is using over 200 MB - I guess the main one) using 100% CPU for about half a minute, and in that my PC is unusable - everything hangs. It takes a bit more time to close all of them.

Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you.

I have recently moved to firefox and wanted to set up an address autofill so I didn't have to type something in everytime but I could only find an autofill for credit cards instead. After some digging I believe the issue is that I am using the en-GB version of firefox as I live in the UK while address autofill is only available on the en-US build. If this is the case is there a workaround so that I can have address autofill and if there is not a workaround does anyone have any idea when this feature is likely to be rolled out to the rest of us. Cheers

I have been using ublock origin add-on for years without any issues. For the past few weeks, pop up videos as well as above alert message appears on several news sites. Is this a glitch with the add-on or firefox browser issues?

Many thanks!

We used to be able to organize our extension buttons and icons in the toolbar, beside the address bar. However, I just updated Firefox and can no longer show these icons on the toolbar. Instead, they're hidden in the Extensions menu (with the puzzle-piece icon)

This is annoying.

There are some extensions I use many times a day, like my password manager. Is there a way to move my extension/plugin buttons back to the toolbar?

At some point every night, my Firefox (and only Firefox) reverts to version 111 from the latest version. This happens on 2 different Windows 11 machines.

I can only get Firefox to run again by running from command prompt with "-allow-downgrade" option and then updating again.

I usually don't notice until I launch Firefox the following morning and it gives me a message that the profile was created with an older version and to exit or create a new profile.

I've had Firefox open and then it reverts and it gives me a XULRunner error about the profile being used by an older version.

I don't have any special backup or restore software running and the physical files in my Firefox folder in c:\program files\mozilla firefox are being physically pushed to a prior version dated 3/21/2023.

On both machines, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled and it's good for a day and then reverts.

No log entries for the reversion can be found. It's just back to a prior version.

I've never come across anything like this before and have scanned for any malware or other issue, but haven't found anything.

What configuration setting do I adjust if I want to change the font size of only the tabs and toolbar text, not the text of the window / body (managed with Windows' "Make text bigger" option)? I've made the text of the tabs and toolbar large enough for my taste, yet that same setting make the text for everything else in the browser way too big. I'd rather not download a third-party extension as the solution as that implies third-party data gathering. Thank you.
