With the new Firefox update Roblox has stopped launching correctly. When I click on a game I want to play in the Roblox website, and pop-up shows up asking where I want to launch the game link. I go into my application, select Roblox, then click open link in this application. The problem is that instead of launching the game in Roblox, it just opens the Roblox website in a new tab. This problem is specific to Firefox, Chrome and Safari work just fine.

Latest (78) Firefox Breaks AutoPlay/Pop-Out Settings

Ever since Firefox updated to 78, previous settings to block video autoplay and pop-out no longer work. I found a page detailing the settings to change for autoplay, but I cannot find anything on blocking pop-out videos. foxnews.com, for example... when you scroll down the page, the video will pop-out to a small, annoying window/frame that you have to close before you can see the rest of the page. How do I stop that in this new version?

It would be really nice if Firefox would stop breaking the settings used from previous versions, especially when "updates" are forced without warning, notice or approval. It would also be nice if websites would stop forcing visitors to watch their stupid videos regardless of whether you actually want to or not; but that is a-whole-nother topic...

Is this some scam or have you seen this before? I don't do that many searches and do not have this problem with other browsers. Now I can no longer use Google for searches in Firefox. I get the Google error page that makes me click the "I'm not a Robot" and says:

Recently when I started typing my mail address, mail.live.com, when I would type the 'm' a site called marxists.org started appearing at the top of the sites list. I'd never visited this site, and have no desire to, but as I was used to mail.live.com appearing at the top of the autocomplete results, I ended up clicking on this site a couple of times.

Has Firefox promoting political sites recently or is there some other explanation for this?

I haven't made any changes to my display settings, but after the latest Firefox update (July, 2020) my bookmarks toolbar font size got way smaller and there's no setting to adjust it back. I do not want to make my webpage font size bigger, just the bookmarks toolbar font. It is infuriating to have this change take place without me specifically doing anything and I should not have to download an add-on or extension to fix this (nor should I have to do some weird about:config thing that someone else posted; that makes zero sense to me and is potentially dangerous).

What the heck happened with the most recent update and why are there no controls to adjust toolbar font size in the preferences!?!?!?!?

The latest is I can't search from the search bar with a new tab. This is after doing a migration. I erased Firefox and reinstalled the app and all of my data was still there. I reopened the session as if I had just closed a session and I was logged into gmail. So clearly Mozilla's instructions on deleting the app on MAC doesn't work. Recycle bin. How do you literally delete the app?

Hoping deletion will solve the issue of not being able to hit enter in the search bar to perform a google search, or click the arrow. Nothing works.

Further, I'm logged into this browser, yet when the tabs disappear I can't reaccess them. What's the point of logging into a browser if it doesn't remember the tabs?

Hello. The screenshot option in my browser is not working. The small scissors icon beside "Take a screenshot" is missing and the button doesn't work. It should be mentioned I recently installed Firefox in a new Windows 10 laptop and this problem is occurring particularly in this laptop. Is the Snipping Tool disabling the screenshot option in Firefox? Is so how do I solve this problem?
