Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

The Firefox account settings page displays a list of logged in devices at the very bottom of the page (connected services).

I have verified all logged in devices to be correct. However for one of the devices (my main computer browser), the location displayed is COMPLETELY off. I live in Norway, and it claims device location is somewhere in Oregon, United States. I do not use any VPN services and both my public IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are located in Norway, from which I connect with the device/browser in question (whatismyipaddress.com shows correct location for both of them). Also, activity timestamp is updated in accordance with my own activity from the client, but the location remains wrong. I also tried logging out the device, and logging back in, but this did not fix the location.

Obviously the location service used for the logged in device list is unreliable. I suggest that you please also show the latest IP address used by each device, so that more technically inclined users can verify correct addresses themselves, should the location be way off. It is unsettling to see strange locations (for known devices) on a page used to verify the security of my Firefox account. In this instance, there is no security breach, but it required me to spend much time investigating.

I do not know if it matters, but the device in question is a Linux desktop Firefox client.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad.

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Good day,

I am so upset and frustrated after losing all of my bookmarks from my favorite browser that have decided to ask this question here which I'd normally not do and am hoping someone could clarify and guide through restoring it all.

I rebooted my PC last night and upon reboot completion my firefox was updated on its own to v89 or something, the latest as of today's date and so i spent a day not liking the most important thing that I enjoyed on the previous version, which was the ability to reload the open tab by mouse right clicking on it and selecting "Reload tab" (which was the FIRST option at the top of the menu), but for some weird reason the latest update has "New tab" as the first option to select from and no longer "Reload tab" (which is now the 2nd option), which drove me crazy as every time I went to reload my multiple open pages by mouse right clicking them and clicking on the first option at the top of the menu (which used to be reload tab), it was opening 6-7 new tabs instead as the first option at the top now is "new tab", which drove me nuts. This could be a really minor thing for some, but its not for others, its fine that its there, but there should've at least been an option to re-arrange the right click menu and either hide "new tab" as Im not even sure why that was implemented as you can simply close on the "+" signg at the end of your tab to launch a new tab if you need it, from being the first on the list or something along those lines, but I wanted my "Reload tab" be the first option on the list when I mouse right click on any page to perform action with it and thus I decided to revert to prev version Firefox Setup 88.0.1 on my Win 10 pc.

The problem I faced was when I started installing that older version I got this pop up (see attached image)

Without any serious thought I clicked on create new profile as it wouldn't let me install the older version otherwise, it either had an exit or create new option and once I created new profile it all looked brand new as if i've never owed a firefox before and I've used it for ages, my fav browser. Everything is just gone, addons, extension, everything I had organized.

I tried restoring previous profile via about:support, I see 3 on there with the latest 2 seeming to be the latest once and there was one that I think was my old one, but when I clicked on "Launch profile in bew browser" to see if thats the one I had with all my stuff, it kept giving me the same error that you see on the screenshot, so no matter what I did it just wouldnt let me launch my old one.

I searched here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-lost-or-missing-bookmarks#w_determine-if-firefox-has-created-a-new-profile tried a few things to follow, recovering bookmarks did not seem to work, I just see bookmarks from June 23rd which I didnt have any anyway, so it better not override anything I had before, and now im just so discouraged and not sure how to restore everything the way I had that deciding to post for help here.

I would appreciate if someone could clarify this instead of just posting links with tons of info to follow, I can find those links myself, some of them I followed, if someone who knows exactly what happenned and could say whether or not this is still recovarable with clear steps on what to do that would be much appreciated.

I also wonder if I was to restore my windows to previous restore point, would it restore my browser to how it was or it wouldnt?

Please assist, thank you!

Hi,

I always disable 'Top Sites', 'Recommended by Pocket', 'Highlights' and 'Snippets' under 'Firefox Home Content' in about:preferences#home on all my devices - I like to have a clean homepage with just the web search bar waiting in the middle of the screen.

Within the last few days, those specific preferences have turned themselves back on. What's really frustrating is that when I turn them back off, they persist for a short while, but then turn themselves back on again, often all of them at once, but sometimes a subset!

I've gone as far as deleting my profile and starting afresh, but the problem reoccurs.

I'm at a loss with where to go from here or how to diagnose it further and would appreciate any advice!

Thanks, Phil

Sometimes it's the website I'm connecting to directly, and sometimes it's embedded images hosted on another site that won't load. As I write this, I am unable to access YouTube. (Update, 2 minutes later - now I can.)

Ctrl + F5 doesn't work. Nor does clearing my cookies, cache, site preferences and logins. I tried disabling all my addons - that didn't work either.

This is a local problem, I think. The speed of the failed load is instantaneous to half a second in duration, judging by the refresh button spinning.

However, there is one solution: loading the page in a private window will actually fix the problem in my main window. Obviously, this is not a convenient solution, and I'd like to know what causes this.

Since the download of 89.01, my drop down menus on some features will not stay visible. They flicker on, and off.... gone. This happens on my search engine toolbar, plus on other sites that have a drop down menu fields for saved information. It works for for the main FF menu's drop down options across the top (i.e. File, Edit, View, History< bookmarks, Tools, Help).

I can occasionally cheat it by holding the left mouse button down and dragging it to where the drop down menu flickered for a brief nanosecond, but it often takes 3-4 times to get it to stay visible and select an option.

Additionally it seems to affect a few other features, such as when I hit the hold down the CTRL button, the window zooms/resizes larger. huh? That's a real pain in the butt when using copy/paste short cuts.

I've tried refreshing FF, checked settings. I have no add ons. Standard theme. Note: Windows 10, Version 10.0.19041 Building 19041, FF version 89.01 64bit, HP Desktop computer, Model 510-p020.

FF 88 is still on my HP laptop, and I don't have an issue with that computer or FF version. You won't find me updating that until this is sorted out. This all showed up with FF 89. At this point I'm wanting to find FF 88 to reinstall, but can't find a download for that except for 3rd party sites, and I'm not going there.

Anyone else experiencing this? And is there a solution I'm missing, or a fix on the horizon? Thank you so much for your assistance.
