I had set the about:config settings after 75 came out to fix the address bar. Today I got 77.0.1 and now the address bar seems broken again. When I mouse over it, there is no longer a down arrow to click and show my common sites. If I click in the bar and then delete everything, the list of common sites appears. If I click away and click back into the blank address bar, now I have to hit the down arrow to get the list to appear. I need a way to get the down arrow back so the address bar works as expected.

These config options are all set to false:

   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips
   browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps

Just last night I updated Firefox to version 78.0.1 on Fedora. I cleared all my history. I had to sign in to Firefox account again for some reason.

And this afternoon I discovered that my Logins and Passwords has gone empty. I use master a password and that is still in effect, and my sync settings includes logins and passwords. I've done this many times--signed in to my Firefox account, set up a master password and I'd see all my saved passwords there after doing a fresh install of my operating system. I don't know what happened now.

Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit) for Ubuntu

When I click on the chat icon in the old Reddit, it doesn't load. It loads fine on the Redesign. It works fine on both old Reddit and Redesign on Chrome, and another Reddit user has confirmed the same experience.

I see this version was updated on June 3, 2020, and while I don't use chat very often, I know it has been only recently unresponsive. Problem is, I use old Reddit almost exclusively when I'm actually using Reddit because I prefer the way it runs.

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

It seems most answers to this question tell you to clear browsing data and the autofill entries. That's not what I want.

Say you have a form that contains previous data, whether manually entered or autofilled. You want to use autofill for the entire form, but by default it doesn't overwrite fields with entries. How do I clear the form and start fresh so autofill can do its job?

Using Firefox on Linus Mint

Before the latest "upgrade" there were two options relating to tabs "Close Tabs To The Right" and "Close Other Tabs" Now there is an options marked "Close Multiples Tables" which means I have to make an extra, painful and unneccesary click before being able to close tabs.

Is there a way to return it to how it should be?

Hello, I am a Firefox user for a long time (before 1.0). I was seeing how the user base is going down lately. I wondered why. Now, I start to understand.

I've been using Linux for more than 20 years. Several flavors. Now, I use Sabayon and KDE Neon. I understand it's not a big user base for Linux in the world, for desktop.

Still, in the last years, I have had a BIG problem using Firefox under Linux, regardless the theme I chose, the Linux distribution, or its base distribution. The radio and the check boxes. Can't see any if the site does not have some override of the common controls. Can't filter when shopping, can't set addresses, can't pay.

I've found many people complaining about. The solutions provided were to try finding some theme or hack the site pages by inspecting elements and changing styles there.

Are you serious? Do you think the Linux users are all IT web specialists? How do you expect people adopt Firefox back? Even my son simply switched to Chrome due to this. Because it's practical.

I have tried so many things, none worked so far.

You blew your knee by changing the plugins API, that disturbed everybody's productivity, but people were patient, waited many years to have their stuff back, still not there yet. But missing such basic feature as common controls makes it unusable.

You must do something, as Google does, as Microsoft does, even Opera.

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3

Whenever I search for a new subject(not pre-searched) no results are shown and I get the message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site". This happens only when I use Duckduckgo to search. I have updated firefox to the latest version, used safe mode, and cleared all my browsing history but none of them have seemed to work. I have been facing this problem since 2 days now and initially I used to get the error message "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". Thank you.

Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

Please see attached image. Whenever I try to install an extension on firefox quantum 68.2.0 ESR it simply shows a greyed out button I cannot press. The only article I can find on this offers the solution that it can be fixed using another plugin (which I can't install for the same reason...)

I'm practicing my Javascript with a very simple static HTML page.

I have a sticky footer on top set with CSS. I attached click events to the page's menu anchor tags to jump to the section in the page. Since the header is fixed, the jumped-to section will be covered by the fixed header's height. Therefore I have something like this in my JS script.

     elemTarget.scrollIntoView(true);
     window.scrollBy(0, -parseInt(fixedHeaderHeight.slice(0, 2)));

I have run this in the debugger and everything works in my script. The page gets scrolled back to header's height. However, when I keep on entering the scripts built-in Firefox I stumble upon a function that register's a click event in `content_script.js`.

this one:

window.addEventListener("click", function(e){

 if ( document.body.classList.contains("js-fbc-prompt-active") ) {
   const activePrompt = findActivePrompt();
   const activePromptTarget = document.querySelector(".fbc-has-badge.js-fbc-prompt-active");
   if ( !activePrompt.contains(e.target) && !activePromptTarget.contains(e.target) ) {
     closePrompt();
   }
 } else {
   contentScriptInit(true);
 }

});

after returning from the function above, window.scrollBy() gets undone, meaning that my section's title gets covered by my fixed header.

Why is this happening? Shouldn't this script NOT intervene with anything that happens in my own script?

Hi folks,

I have endured the sync problem for months. Today I struggled for solving it.

I have a Firefox 68.0.1 esr manual installation on Ubuntu 16.04. The sync worked when I signed in the first time. But the bookmark can not longer be updated afterwards.

If I add or delete a bookmark on my Firefox 68.0.1 esr on Windows 10, the change will not be updated to the Linux version. And vice versa.

On the Linux, I tried to disconnect my account (in the preference about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync ). I click "Disconnect" and "Just Disconnect" in the prompt, but the account is still logged in.

Another way I tried is to have a fresh new installation of Firefox 68.9 esr. Then I was asked to sign in again. After typing the password, the new bookmarks were updated. But If I make further changes on the other devices, these changes will not be sync to Linux. And I can't disconnect the account on Linux.

It looks like a new install, which resetting the login process can temporarily solve the problem.

Here is the content of the sync-log file. Can you see what is broken? Thanks in advance.

Hey, So I have set my homepage to netflix and it until recently would always open on netflix whenever the firefox icon was clicked on the desktop. recently it stopped doing that and only shows a blank tab. The settings for homepage are still set to netflix. If I load firefox in safe mode then it does load netflix. I have deleted and purged firefox, deleted my profile folder, and removed all extensions. But it is still just showing a blank page when opening a new window. Also if I create a new launcher on the desktop and have it load firefox and any webpage it will open firefox but not the page. When I click the homebutton it takes me to netflix. I know this isn't really a major issue, but it's pretty annoying. Thanks for your help, Jim
