My PC immediately connects to Bing every time I connect or press the Home icon

I have used FireFox exclusively for more than 20 years - my current PC operating system is Windows 10 and I have never used Bing as my search engine

Can you please help

I don't know if its an issue with the theme or Firefox itself (I think it's Firefox because it already happened on previous versions), but when I open certain number of tabs, or a tab with certain characteristics that I don't know, the whole row of tabs increases its height. And it annoys me. Thanks beforehand!

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

I've been directed to use a "Feedback" Tab on the Rakuten Kobo website www.kobo.com but I can't see it on my screen. I've tried turning off the Pop-Up Blocker, AdBlocker, and Privacy controls, all to no avail. It should be visible on the extreme right hand border, White Text on a Blue Background, reading vertically, thus: https://v2uploads.zopim.io/Y/6/g/Y6gwUmnu4OATxN3Tli4Av9bYN319BTdO/6721b8f79bda33aef0ca76f22893d4cd50d246b7.png

Clicking on the Comments section in any ZDNet article (https://www.zdnet.com/article/) gets no response at all. The Comments section doesn't open, I'm not prompted to log in -- nothing. The cursor does change from the default arrow to a hand with pointed finger, as usual, and the Comments bar color flashes as it should when I click on it -- but that's the limit of interaction. I've tested the link with Chrome and Bing and the function still works there, but not in Firefox, and apparently hasn't since about the 26th of July. What's going on, and how can this problem be addressed?

As the title says, almost all of my bookmarks have completely disappeared without any warning. I didn't update firefox, restart it, or anything. I have no idea why this happened, as firefox has been working perfectly all day long, and only after i left my computer for an hour or two, did i come back to the terrifying sight that all of my nearly 630 bookmarks have fully vanished into thin air.

Oddly enough, i still have one folder, and a few seemingly random bookmarks left over, as to where the rest of them went, i have no idea.

I've attempted to restart firefox, log out, log back in, disable extensions, and more. The first thing i tried was to use the restore option, however when i click it, it simply says "unable to process file". Out of all the backups available to me, including a nearly year and half old one from an Old Firefox Data folder i had on my desktop, none of them work.

I also checked underneath profiles, and i saw that i had one more profile than i should, however when using said profile, it has absolutely zero of the bookmarks, so that's a no go.

I really can't wrap my head around what could've caused this or how to rectify it, and im sort of panicking at the idea of years upon years of bookmarks just disappearing at the drop of a hat.

My only solace is that it appears my mobile (ios) firefox app appears to have all of the bookmarks still saved and accessible, but i can't find any way to transfer those bookmarks onto browser.

Any help would be enormously appreciated

About a day or two ago, random images stopped loading on sites I visit regularly.

I haven't changed anything on the browser. In fact, I disabled add-ons to see if it would fix the problem (it hasn't).

I'm already neurotic about deleting the cache and such after bold texteverybold text session every day.

It only occurs on Firefox desktop (90.0.2 64-bit); everything loads fine on mobile and on other desktop browsers.

Hello.

Up until recently, I could click a link to a locally stored Python source file (.py extension) and it would display as a plain text file in Firefox. This is what I want; e.g., it is a way that I view my notes, refer to examples, and so on.

Starting a few days ago, when I click such a link, I now get a pop-up window with the two options "Open with" or "Save file." I have tried a number of things to get back to the old behavior, including deleting the handlers.json file in my Profile folder, running a full Refresh, and creating a new profile. None of these got me back to the old behavior: displaying the .py file as plain text.

If I set the "Open with" option in that pop-up window to Firefox, I just keep getting the pop-up over and over again, while a new tab is created each time.

Note: if I look at a .py file on GitHub, there is no problem: again, the file just displays.

I suspected this behavior is connected with my having installed the latest version of Python (3.9.6) a few days ago, and I just confirmed this by updating Python on another machine. That is, on the other machine, the .py file would display as plain text until just now, after I update Python there.

So, I believe the Python installation is the cause of the problem, but, nonetheless, it seems to me that I should be able to set (or unset?) something within Firefox to make .py files open as plain text, as they used to.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hello there - hoping for a hand to fix this. Several months ago Firefox crashed while it was in use - void of any update process. Upon reopening, the main window would launch and before any tabs could load it would crash again. I attempted to open in troubleshoot mode with the identical result. I gave it a break and used Chrome but in returning to this issue today the same has occurred. This time after the troubleshoot mode crash, I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed fresh (this was an upgrade from v89 to v92). Upon opening post update the browser crashed again. Each time this happens I have received a crash report screen which I accepted and it was reported as successfully submitted. However, when I open the crash report folder only two appear to have been saved - one old from the first occurrence (6/2021) and one from today(8/10/21). Both of these are linked below for review.

This is on an older Windows 7 machine that honestly I know should be updated but this is only used for light gaming and web surfing and I am not interested in an OS upgrade as I disagree with with the business practices of Microsoft - I find their policies are rather intrusive as a consumer.

I hope I've given enough information about the issue here and my system, thanks in advance for any help!

In the menu drop downs under 'Edit' and 'View' and 'History' there are items that are 'inactive' and cannot be selected.

I have changed the background colour and look of the Menu drop downs in my CSS file but am looking for a way to show the 'unselectable' items.

In the Edit menu it is: Redo , Cut, Copy, Delete and associated keyboard shortcuts that have black text. i need light grey.

In the View menu it is: Text Encoding that is black

In the History menu it is: Recently closed windows

Does anyone have the code required to make them look light grey even if not 'selectable'. I have all selectable items with white text as the drop down background colour is teal.

I would appreciate any help I can get.

Why is the device name displayed not "Mate 30 Pro", as in the case of "Macbook D14"? I renamed the device in Firefox settings a few days ago.

Good day , For some unknown reason to me my HP printer will not connect to WI FI using Firefox but will connect if using Edge (which by the I hate and resist using at all costs) . I have tried trouble shooting to the best of my limited ability via HP and online , but to no avail. It was working with Firefox the last time I needed to use it, but not now. Hopefully someone can help me , but I have very limited computer skills and a lot of the short forms acronyms and computer gobbly gook baffle me . I ask that with any answer please .........KISS (keep it simple stupid) it . Please no one take offense to the term (KISS) , I did not come up with it , but it seems the simpleness has left the building these days.

Hi. When Firefox added the screenshot functionality, it was very useful to me since i didn't have to open snip & sketch every-time I want to take a screenshot. I did notice that the ability to access the screenshot from the address bar was removed and moved to the mouse's right click options instead. I work with Microsoft azure and have to create documents for clients and by default, right clicking doesn't work on azure and some other sites. Because of this, i can't take screenshots using Firefox. Is there a way to put the screenshot option back to the address bar or maybe have it show up in the toolbar options? Thanks.
