I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

Everytime I open the suggestions in the address bar Search with Google or Search with Amazon appear at the top. You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

I am unable to connect to the following URL https://lakmshaegov01.msha.gov/UserManagement/ChangePassword.aspx. All other browsers seem to work.

I ran an SSL Labs test and it confirms that all tested versions of Firefox fail. I would like to know if anyone can spot something that might allow me to connect by temporarily relaxing the security checks in Firefox for this site.

The full text of the pop-up is "Some links being hijacked, pop up "Congratulations device user! You are selected by our sponsor to be among the first few persons to win a Galaxy S10 or other"

The URL starts http://sweeps7668.bunnyvhyk7.live/4368084763/ and takes me to some false Survey about Google. This has happened a couple of times now with different websites. The link I clicked thsi time ( from DuckDuckGo search ) is https://www.topgadgetreviews.co.uk/finish-line-ceramic-wet-lubricant-120ml-bottle-review/ and after about 5 to 10 minutes when I click the link it is OK.

I am running multiple user accounts on my Mac (macOS 10.14.6). Both users use Firefox Developer Edition (75.0b10).

When Firefox updates itself, it's breaking for whichever user is in the 'background' at the time. The 'foreground' user is prompted for their password to install [something something didn't take a note] Firefox Helper. Then when I flip to the 'background' user, they see the attached error.

This has happened twice now. Help!

So I have plenty of tabs I want to keep. I'm happy with the way Firefox loads up all my "saved" tabs. As in, when I shut down my PC, they are all there the next time I boot up. However, there is one page that keeps coming back up, even though I have closed it every single time. I can go the whole day, it's not there. Next time I boot up, there it is again.

It's not my homepage, or saved as a bookmark or anything. It was some random link to a Ubisoft free game offer that my friend sent me a couple of weeks ago, and it is infuriating me that I can't work out how to stop it coming back.

Hi, I'm using webpack 4.6 and Babel 7+ to compiled JS, CSS, and their sourcemaps. I can edit individual SCSS files directly in the style editor, and have verified that webpack watch triggers a compilation, so a new css file replaces the original.

I was expecting Firefox to render style changes without me having to manually reload the page (as I have been able to do in the past with tools such as grunt). But that's not the case. Styles are not automatically updated and I have to reload the page by hand. Not a big deal when it is only once change I have to do, but on my work, I have to do this dozens and dozens of times when I'm developing, so it gets a little tiring.

Any suggestions on how to trigger the 'live' updating of styles ?

Thank you!

Restored 74.x from backup. Restarted FF, it restarted the update and completed. Now running 75.0. System Win 10 Pro, up to date. It appears the update was incomplete. The referenced dll was shown as new version when the folder was examined. Richard

My userChrome.css:

.tab-line { display: none !important }
.urlbarView-body-inner { border-top: unset !important }

The ".tab-line" rule is applied, the ".urlbarView-body-inner" and "#urlbar-results" rules aren't. Can anybody reproduce? What's wrong?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

What does this mean and how do I get it to stop appearing on my web page? If I click on it it disappears but pops up again whenever I go to the next page. It is extremely irritating.
