I just turned off AdBlock Plus in the Add-Ons screen and downloaded ublock origin to try it out. There is no icon for this new plug in to be found anywhere. I can manually go in and change the settings on this plugin in the add-ons screen but there is no icon anywhere to go in quicker or to show a report of how many items were blocked. When I try to Customize my toolbars, the icon is not available there either. The nearest threads I can find on this topic are from 2018 and their solutions are very basic use. Yes, of course I restarted the browser. TIA.

I just got my upgrade from Firefox86 to Firefox90 working, but the tab bar is completely missing.

I still use "old-style" FIrefox. From top to bottom: File/Edit/View menu Search bar Bookmarks Toolbar Tab bar

(yes, I AM old. I've been using Firefox since Version 1 and this particular style works for me, developers be damned.)

The tab bar is completely missing. Firefox knows how many tabs I have open (it warns me when I try to exit) but doesn't show any. The area that the Tab Bar used to occupy is simply empty.

Any ideas on how to fix? (Yes, I have done the Google.)

Hello,

In Firefox's toolbar there is an unknown ad blocker named Ad Blocker. This is NOT Ad Block.

This supposed ad blocker is not blocking ads and cannot be uninstalled; it does not show up as an extension or add-on.

I also interferes with other ad blockers like Ad Block, so I had to uninstall the latter

The symbol for this Ad Blocker in the menu/toolbar at the top is a shadowed, almost invisible, backward hand, the mirror opposite of the hand symbol Ad Block uses as its insignia.

I cannot find any information about this Ad Blocker ad blocker online.

Does anyone know about it and how to get rid of it?

Also - I've run three version of anti-malware software and none found it or got rid of it.

Thank you

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

All of a sudden I'm getting the Yahoo maiil ID changed to Google Mail with out any authorisation on my part ? I know Google owns Yahoo. I use Yahoo mail all the time and Yahoo is my ID for many applications so why has this happened ? If something like this can change unknowns to me does this mean that Google has control of my MAC and FireFox and its content .??

Installed version of Firefox browser is 87. When attempting to update from both the About window and the preferences it says 'Firefox is up to date' even though the current version is 95.

MacOS 10.15 with 64bit version installed. How can this issue be fixed? Or, what is the 'right' way to install latest version without removing installed version (so no settings/data is lost)?

Thank you.

I'm trying to paste text into a text field so that I can list stuff for sale on eBay. When I paste what I've written in my word processor (LibreOffice) the text I paste will not change to the text style I have preset in the text field for my eBay listing. If I were doing this in another word processor I would be able to use a Paste Special command so that the text I'm pasting would automatically change to fit the text style already in use in the document.

Does Firefox not support this ???? Why Not?????

I never delete history! But I noticed this since long time ago, e.g. I want to go on a website - I was recently on (if I closed it already) but it is not in immediate search history - it happened to me multiple times!

Also now: I was searching for one keyword a lot, like 50 times and in history are barely like 7 hits. No idea why it is not there!!!

Please help.

Any idea why it is taking such a long time to get the updated version of FB Purity, 33.6 plug-in approved so that the end user (me) can download it? Firefox currently only recognizes 33.2. It is available for Edge and Chrome. I prefer not to get tangled with the other options. If I do, it's probably going to be to dump FF altogether.

Hi, I was downloading a few videos last night and the last one seemed to get stuck. Completely done, .part was gone but would not finish. I could not pause it either. Left in the downloads as "unknown time left". Downloading it again finished with no problem but was left with a file I could not delete. I tried downloading a couple other things and they too got stuck. I used an addon download manager that removed them from Firefox's download progress but could not delete them. I tried using cmd to delete them and had no luck being able to delete them that way. So I am stuck with 1 at "unknown time", 1 file at .98 gb, 2 files with 0 bytes and 3 .part that I cannot remove.

Edit: Restarting let me delete them. I'm just worried as to why they wouldn't finish now

I have been trying to find a solution for this problem for several months with zero results.

I use duckduckgo search. No matter what I search for, or how I word it I get "results" from 3 - 5 websites (2 of which are usually amazon & youtube - even though I'm not shopping or looking for a video). None of the non-results are remotely relevant, but they are the only results I get... Duplicated... Until I hit the "no more results" brick wall. And speaking of youtube... When I am looking for a video (audiobooks usually) my "results" consist of 3 or 4 channels (always the same 3 or 4). I get several videos from each of the channels & duplicates of those same videos then I slam up against the "no more results" brick wall.

I've cleared caches & cookies & stored data. I've deleted search history, cleared search history, paused search history, etc... Those things produce no changes whatsoever. I searched (at a friend's house on her computer) for information. The results might or might not have been relevant. It involves inserting great huge heaps of java-script into my machine. In spite of being computer illiterate, I'm not stupid. So, no I didn't copy or paste any script or download anything.

Everything I know about computers I had to figure out for myself. The most important discovery I made is that the way computers function is perfectly logical - frequently unreasonable, but always logical. That's why although I am computer-illiterate, I'm not computer-dysfunctional. I've been able to make laptops, tablets & android phones do things the experts & professionals said were impossible. But if people try to explain stuff to me by speaking computer code, all I hear is whah, whah, whah (like in the way grownups talk in the Charlie Brown cartoons).

I sincerely appreciate any information or suggestions anyone can offer. Just give it to me in plain english. I'm an intelligent adult who grew up in a socially-insignificant school district.

Thanks in advance to all!
