When I use control-F to search in a page, a ribbon appears at the bottom of the page with a search bar and associated controls. Somewhere on that bar, there should be an "X" to dismiss the search. It's not there anymore. (See screenshot.) The only way I've found to dismiss the search is to put the cursor in the search bar and press the ESC key. That's a bother. This must be a new bug, right?

In the last few weeks I have not been able to reset MY location for the weather. I am in Red Deer and the location is locked at Fort Saskatchewan, where I have never been! I know it should be a simple fix but even Geek Squad was not able to change this and they even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I took my computers to Best Buy to give them the run down and as soon as they opened up the default location said Red Deer! They are only a few blocks away and I was relieve that it worked. At home it immediately came up as Fort Sask again. This is just an annoyance but I like to use Firefox as my browser. Any suggestions?

Hiya I want to be warned when quitting multiple tabs BUT I do not want the session restored when opening again. This used to be possible but now in Settings if I untick Restore previous session even though Warn you when quitting the browser is ticked it does not give a warning when I quit Firefox. So this means if its unticked then if I accidently hit the close button I loose all the open tabs in firefox. If ticked I have to close all the tabs manually each time I close firefox to prevent thm opening when I start Firefox again. Im on Windows 10 Pro 21H1 with Firefox 93.0 any idea if I can change this behaviour in the advanced prefs? (about:config) thanks for any insights A

Hello. I've just recently refreshed Firefox. Before I did that, I had a home icon next to the round refresh icon on the upper left of the menu. Now I don't have it. And I can' click to the home icon to get a new home page of Firefox! And I am NOT a happy camper. Did you all forget to put that on there or what?

Yes, I am fully aware that I can click the plus sign to get a new page. But I love the home page icon. Is it coming back by any chance?

After updating to firefox 91, the option to disable proton is removed and now it's not able to turn it off. Proton looks good in some aspects, but I want the seperator between tabs back.

I keep hundreds of tabs in one firefox window and use some of them daily, without the seperator to show the boundary of tab I have to move my mouse carefully to click the correct tab I want, which is disturbing. The ability to work with hundreds of tabs is the reason I use firefox, the designers of proton seem not to have this in mind. Is it possible to offer at least an option to bring the seperator back?

I was checking out these tweaks

Firefox Quantum About:Config Tricks You Need to Learn

I'm curious about "Lower Memory Usage When Minimized". Is there a downside to this? Why wouldn't this be a default setting?

Details: This tweak is mainly for Windows users. When you minimize Firefox, it will send Firefox to your virtual memory and free up your physical memory for other programs to use. Firefox will reduce its physical memory usage, when minimized, to approximately 10MB (give or take some), and when you maximize Firefox, it will take back the memory that it needs.

The preference name does not exist and needs to be created.

Right-click on the background and select “New -> Boolean.”

Enter the name when prompted: config.trim_on_minimize.

Enter the value: True.

Hello, I signed in to Firefox on a new computer and it appears to have synced to the new computer, overwriting and erasing all my bookmarks. I use Firefox at work because I need to move through several computers. Firefox allows me to bring my bookmarks with me to each station. Now it appears I may have erased all my bookmarks by syncing this new computer, not the other way around as it always has. Please help me recover my bookmarks.

Using a PC desktop computer with Firefox and going to walgreens.com>upload photo (attached image showing upload photo icon on the walgreens.com home page after scrolling down) results in the attached image with a blank page and blue lettering.

Using a PC desktop computer without Firefox and going to walgreens.com>upload photo goes to the correct page in walgreens.com. Image attached. I can also get to the same destination using a cellphone which doesn't have Firefox.

Pretty much have exhausted regular troubleshooting steps. Walgreens support said it's not Walgreens doing this. What Firefox setting is wrong?

On websites that renders text in the users' installed fonts, the text gets rendered in Arial Narrow. This only happens on Firefox; attached are screenshots of https://nyaa.si/ and https://mpv.io/ on Firefox and in Chromium.

A quick glance at about:config with the search term "font" shows no modified settings.

Any fixes?

Ever since I started using Firefox which was months ago, I've been getting this "Hmm. We're having trouble finding that site" page multiple times a day when opening links to various websites. Refreshing the page makes it load correctly. I've tried troubleshooting this in the past but didn't spend too much effort, but enough is enough. Things I have tried:

  • Disabling all extensions
  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • I am using the default theme so there's nothing to disable there
  • Clearing the cache
  • Checking my internet connection (I'm connected and everything else works)
  • Flushing my DNS
  • Resetting Windows, which included reinstalling Firefox (I did this to fix something else, but still)
  • Disabling IPv6 and DNS prefetching
  • I am not using a Proxy

I feel like I've tried everything. What else can I do?

FireFox 93 will not work on many sweepstakes sites like uwinit.com, winloot.com. We are sorry but it appears that the page you are trying to reach is currently unavailable. Please try again later. Chrome is working on same sites. I use FireFox to enter sweeps and it is mostly useless to me now. I am using Windows 10, Norton SafeWeb, "Cookies are not important to me", Roboform. Can I revert to a usable version of FireFox, or can you tell me how to fix it?
