Mouse scroll wheel not scrolling web page after installing Firefox version 110. I installed an older version, 98, and it worked again, but that version would not use my profile and it seemed to update itself to 110 and then scrolling was broken again. Am I alone or is everyone broken at version 110?

How do I uninstall the Firefox icon from the taskbar? The standard article on the Firefox Support website is `How to pin and unpin Firefox from the taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11', but it seems to be out of date. It says to right-click on the icon and click on `Unpin from taskbar', but there is no such item in the right-click menu any more.

I know that it became difficult to unpin the Firefox icon about a year ago. I got a new PC recently and installed Firefox, but I could not remove the icon. Then realised that I should have done this during installation, by using 'Custom installation' and unticking the 'Icon on taskbar' option. I searched the web for clues and found none, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, which was a nuisance.

Some months later, I have just installed the new version 110.0.1, but I forgot to use 'Custom install', with the result that the icon is back on the taskbar. Again I have searched the web, and again no success. I tried reinstalling V110.0.1 on top, using 'custom install' this time --- I could switch off the 'Icon on taskbar', but the icon is still there.

I don't want to uninstall-reinstall this time because I have now configured Firefox as I want it, so that would waste a lot of time --- and I will probably forget again sometime in the future.

I am sure that Firefox has not done this deliberately, because they are always so much on the user's side.

QUESTION: How do I unpin the Firefox icon from the taskbar without uninstalling? I have an idea that there is a registry hack that will achieve this.

The bookmarks scrolling issue since the last update remains, and there has been zero response from support regarding it, no matter who's asked about it.

How about this - when is the next FF update expected? I'm sick and tired of wasting time using a browser that only lets you open one bookmark at a time, and expects you to scroll down through all of them each time you need to access a different one since it no longer holds its place like it did before the last update. And I'm sick and tired of wasting time reporting an issue to "support" only for it to be ignored.

In the past the caret in text entry fields used to blink/pulsate/flash forever in both Firefox and Thunderbird. (Text entry boxes, such as the browser URL-bar, the e-mail To/Subject/Content textboxes, online forms, etc.). Now in the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox 110.0.1 and Thunderbird 102.8.0 the caret stops blinking after just a few seconds. This is very confusing and frustrating for my grandmother and she already called me several times because Firefox and Thunderbird 'stopped working'. I explained to her that this is a new feature but she does not understand and keeps forgetting it after a few days. She is used to the cared blinking continuously, it has been blinking for the past decades whenever she wanted to type something in the computer and it only stopped blinking when the computer program froze or crashed.

I am sure that my grandma is not the only person having issues with the caret not flashing, I for one also would like to have a caret that blinks forever, so when I look away from the screen and look back I do not have to search the text to find where I left my caret.

Please make it so that the default caret appearance and behavior is the same as in all other programs (i.e. blinking forever), as it used to be in the past, just like what everyone is used to. I argue that the majority of users is used to and also expects a blinking caret when they are writing an e-mail or search online and you are confusing a whole lot of people with this minor change, people who do not know how to report bugs or seek help themselves. It's a sign of poor user-friendliness if grandmas need to call their grandchildren or children for help just to write e-mails which they used to be able to do on their own for many years in the past.

I hereby suggest adding an accessibility option for people who wish to disable the blinking cursor and to change the default behavior back to 'caret flashing forever'.

I normally have my bookmarks showing to the left of the main window. I have many, in various header categories like medical, games, finance, etc. Recently I was doing some and wanted to close the bookmarks to give me more room for the main page. I THINK I did it very easily with a right click and close folder or some such thing. Worked great. I got to have more of my display to show on the page.

I am now incredibly frustrated that I can't get them back. I have done research and tried to follow the directions but can't get it to work. I have found Bookmark Tools and Options and I have "always show" checked. But I can't get my bookmarks back to the left of the main page where I can easily go to where I want to go.

I need help! Please. Very frustrating.

Dear Firefox Support,

I am writing to report an issue that I encountered while attempting to recover my bookmarks in Firefox. After reinstalling Windows, I installed Firefox on my new system and attempted to retrieve my saved pages. While browsing through the settings, I discovered a backup recovery button in the bookmarks section and assumed it would restore my previous session in Firefox. Unfortunately, this action deleted all my saved bookmarks and set them to the default settings.

I am extremely disappointed and upset about losing all of my bookmarks, and I am hoping that you can assist me in recovering them. Additionally, I have been unable to locate any method of restoring my saved pages, and I would appreciate your advice on this matter as well.

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to retrieve my lost bookmarks and recover my saved pages. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Pavlo

Firefox Developer Edition - Developer Console is killing my productivity. It started opening in Full screen mode about a week ago and will not exit full screen. I have to F12 and exit developer console. This is a major issue because, I work with the console not docked. Docking blocks my productivity. F11 only puts it into some very weird outline mode where all I see is a rectangular grey outline on my full screen. If I click on it, it repaints the console in full screen. There is no option to drag and expand or contract. Nothing. Nada. Please help. This is my primary browser, er -was my primary browser. I'll continue to work around it until my patience is completely exhausted. Almost there now.

Sorry about the terrible markup on the screenshot. It's hard to encircle a big gray full screen empty frame. Thank you.

After the version 110 update, Firefox has issues displaying text in certain pages like Google Calc, PDF forms, online publication readers. The text seems to break up and fade out. Navigating up and down the page often restores the missing text, but not all of it. Suck pages render without issue in Google Chrome. I am using Firefox in a Linux container within ChromeOS (stable channel), but this issue only started after the latest Firefox update.

It appears that the Firefox v. 111 update has solved this issue.

My problem is simple. I'm trying to use this supermarket website (continente.pt) and the website doesn't load up the images of the products. I have to reload a bunch of times until it finally does. I switched from Google chrome but apparently it was a big mistake, never thought Firefox was so crap. BTW, It's not my adblocker, turned off Enhanced tracking protection and cleared cookies. Nothing works. (on annex I show firefox and google chrome being used on the same website)

I'm not sure when this changed, but I can no longer shrink my search bar to make room for more extension shortcuts. There's no double-arrow, no option I can find in customizing (I've tried the unsupported compact thing). I've gotten myself so worked up over this, I'm sure I'm overlooking something obvious.

Thanks for your help.

I've attached an image of what's happening to me. Since last update, the toolbar is 50% allocated to blank space which cannot be used.

For example, I cannot drag to resize the search box across to the left side of the toolbar (which is where I like it), nor can any item be dragged or placed there.

I'm pondering (if I know how) installing an older version and preventing updates etc.

Is there another solution? Is anyone else seeing this?

Any tips would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers, Matt (Australia)

Despite have used Firefox for many years, I am still not completely clear on why there are two separate areas for cookie settings, and how everything works together. In Cookies and Site Data: I check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. In Manage Exceptions, the listed domains I choose will not be deleted, but all other domains will. Correct? In History: I uncheck Always use private browsing mode, and I check Clear History when Firefox closes. In the Clear Recent History box, I uncheck Cookies and Site Settings. Question: Will be above choices in both areas get me where I want to be, which is retaining cookies for chosen protected sites, while deleting cookies for all others whenever Firefox is closed? If this is where a lot of people want to be, why are these choices presented in such a complicated way? If relevant, under Enhanced Tracking Protection I choose Custom, and leave all the boxes checked. The sites I choose to use seem to perform well with this option. Is this Security & Privacy area in Settings in need of reworking for ease and clarity?

Hello, I have two questions about private windows.

First, on the Home tab it says: "Firefox clears your search and browsing history when you close all private windows"

but what happens if Firefox crashes during a private window session? Will some remnants of your activity remain in some files, as Firefox did not have the chance to clear data as it normally would when closed gracefully?

Second question, when in private mode, does Firefox write data to either favicons.sqlite or places.sqlite (even if only temporarily)?

Thanks.

This morning, upon opening Firefox, I noticed that I could not scroll through any pages or windows. I turned off scroll lock (or so I thought), and it began scrolling. But then, in all of my other windows, scroll lock was activated. So, I hit my scroll lock button again, and now all other windows will scroll except for Firefox. Is there a setting I need to change?

It appears as if scroll lock is reversed on Firefox vs. all other apps on my computer.
