I've just installed Firefox 79.0.1 on Manjaro and the add-on shortcuts that normally appear to the right of the address bar are missing.

Even when selecting "Customize", there are no icons/shortcuts for my installed add-ons. I tried selecting "Restore Defaults" on the customize page but the add-on shortcuts are still missing.

I also have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the add-ons and reintalling firefox itself multiple times.


This is particularly frustrating because one of my add-ons is a password manager and without the shortcut I have to manually enter all my passwords. =(

In brief, I lost my master password and had to delete the entire database and start over!!  :-(

Now I'm trying to recreate the thing and it seems to be mixed up (or I am) and I keep running into a half installed and not installed situation..?

The directions say to create a new account, but I already have one (email addr.) and I want to use that same address. I keep running into 'enter master p.w.' (which I don't have) or create one -- which causes a duplicate.!?

It's bad enough I have to recover MANY accounts and their passwords much less have to wrestle with this.!!?

HELP!!!

I just need to get past this nonsense and start typing in data again.

Thanks, Phil

My Firefox wants to upgrade itself to version 79.

I'm now running version 73. Earlier this year Firefox auto-updated itself to version 74. Cors Everywhere did not work in version 74, and I need to use Cors Everywhere frequently. To get Cors Everywhere to work, I had to go back to version 73, and of course lost all my bookmarks, logins, etc.

So before allowing it to update to version 79, I'd like to know if Cors Everywhere works in version 79.

Thank you.

I am on a website page that continually refreshes after 4 or 5 seconds. I am using what I believe is the latest version of Firefox (July 2020 update) in a Windows 10 32 bit environment. I found a few answers that mention how to disable the auto refresh but those options do not seem to appear in the current version. Perhaps the wordings or options have changed but I cannot find the "Warn me when web pages try to refresh" checkbox. Thanks.

I would like to know if there are options to disable auto refresh for (a) a single webpage or (b) all pages on a website.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am tired of copying title bars over onto a Google Chrome browser (Just so that I can have a long page read to me by a TTS reader add on.

Now Firefox might not be able to get the same one Google locked down; But they should be able to find another one.

In Firefox 79.0 running under Windows 8.1 I see the URL of a link when I mouse over it. I have seen several complaints about this as well as workarounds to get rid of it. However, I find it very useful as I like to know what I am clicking on before I do so. Unfortunately, this URL preview does not appear in Firefox 79.0 running under Ubuntu Studio 18.04. I have not knowingly overridden this feature, nor can I find a userChrome.css file on the system. How can I get it back in Firefox running under Ubuntu?

I have no add-on. When I set my default browser to be bing, sometime later is back to yahoo. Also my home, when I set it, it changes back to default. Both of these happen at the same time. I have changed them 100+ times. This just started about 6 months ago. I have used Firefox for years.

Whenever I start my laptop on which firefox is my browser it also loads ebay, markplaats, bing, google, wikipedia. I do not want this crap to start when I start my laptop/open my browser. I have ccleaner and in that program there is the option to prevent forementionded programmes to start, but when I have closed my laptop and restart it (lets say the next morning) al those programmes boot up again. How do I remove or prevent for ever that those programmes start?

Hi. I have updated Firefox to the latest version (79.0, 64bit) on Windows 7 SP1 x64. WebRender is said to be supported by all Intel GPUs now.

Does somebody have reliable info on this? What are the officially supported Intel GPUs? Thank you.
