I am currently on version 55.0.3 and have had the offer of an update to 56. I accepted the update, installed and restarted FF only to find that all the bookmark foders are grey [not yellow] and a piece of 'unwanted' software [something to do with screenshots] had an icon in the top right-hand corner. I note that doing a search for this problem on this forum, that in a post by WorriedFred on 9.28.17 @ 7.20pm, a post has been marked 'chosen solution'??? There is no solution - if there is where is it??? OR perhaps this is a new default colour style Mozilla have decided to use with this update - how inconsiderate not to mention this if it is so. And to add on a bit of software without permission is a disgrace.

If there has been an official response/explanation for this problem/bug could somebody please point me to it - I have run out of perming 56-bookmarks-grey-all-update in the search Mozilla bar. For the moment I have done a system restore back to 55 - nice yellow forders.

In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel

My Firefox updated today and all of a sudden the color of all background tabs is black. I really dislike this, and I am finding it extremely difficult on my eyes. I did a search of help on how to fix this, and it suggested addons. I have no problem downloading addonns, but none of them are compatible with the most recent version of Firefox. Is there a way to change the black background of tabs so they're not so annoying? Thanks.

As of midnight 12/12/14, Firefox started blocking plugins (in this case, Adobe Flash and Java Deployment Toolkit, possibly others as I've just been to websites that use those), saying that they're out of date. When I click on "Update Now," the Plugin Status page tells me that all my plugins are up to date. (I'm currently running Flash 15.0.0.239 and Java Deployment Toolkit 10.71.2.14, for the record.)

I get the point of this feature, and I really don't want to permanently turn on "always allow," but having to click two "allow" prompts every time I load a website that features Flash is quickly making web browsing intolerable. I'm on the verge of switching to Google Chrome over this.

Firefox automatically upgraded itself to version 41 and now the Trusteer Rapport Endpoint Protection icon is no longer shown to the right of the address bar. It is still there and working in Internet Explorer. The same situation is happening on 2 PCs, both Windows 7 64 bit.

Surely Trusteer Rapport is a widely used feature - one would have thought a new release of Firefox would have been tested to work with it.

pretty simple, I go to the addons and it curtly says.......Norton Toolbar is incompatible with Firefox 38.0.1. So I have gon3 back to firefox version37.0.2 which I was warned has SERIOUS security problems.

Firefox is starting to sound like Microsoft in its "explanations". It worked before now when I upgrade it is suddenly not compatible.

We all know that the coders made a mistake in the nwest version.....so why not fix it. I am beginning to think I may go back to Internet Explorer ......

So Firefox, when will you make Firefox compatible with the extremely popular norton toolbar, ID Vault etc.

I don't think any settings users proipose will fix this...only MOZILLA can.

(Removed beta link to 28. -m)

All the current changes for firefox seem oriented towards the tab computer market but unfortunately these tab computers are way to slow and underperform compared dramaticly compared to my desktop computer. Having tabs below is what makes my system functionality and workflow perform at its best. I often have up to 100 tabs open at a time when doing research but with every change by firefox this ability is more and more taken away. from right click send emails and now tabs cant be placed below its time for firefox to decide if its time for two different versions of there product to be made. One for the desktop and a seperate version for tablet computers. Having tabs above the address bar is just plain stupid when you have 100 tabs open ie it just doesnt work. My pc has 64 gigs of ram and a 6 cor processor and with every itereation of firefox for the past 4 years my ability to use the ability of my PC has been more and more removed. I seem to have no choice but to revert to an earlier version of firfox in order to at least keep some of the former functionality. I dont use touch functionality and yet the latest version seems complllletelly oriented towards touch computers and thats great but its been done at the expence of people like me who will never use this type of feature. Time to creat two seperate versions of Firfox one for people like me who have realy powerfull computers and many many many tabs open at a time and one for the tablet pc touch people who only have 1 or 2 tabs open at a time.

FF29 has deactivated moving tabs to bottom - i.e. closer to work area, FORCING users to move the pointer farther to select a tab. about:config setting no longer works. Would someone please explain how removing this option is beneficial to users?

.... just more "we are smarted than you, and know better than you what is best for you" elitist crap.

And don't tell me to use an extension, they come and go, don't work after updates, etc.


Moderator locking this thread. The thread Owner never returned and this thread has strayed off-topic too often. I think users needing Firefox 29 support would be better served by starting their own Questions thread.

Suddenly while browsing, I got a bar notification saying that some of my addons had been disabled because they were unsupported. Clicking the button took me to a page that showed no addons, but linked to a page for Legacy Addons in which I found 25 of my addons (That's literally all but 2) have been marked as "not verified for use in Firefox" and disabled, despite literally all of them working mere seconds again and a large majority of them being obtained directly from Mozilla's official addon website! Firefox didn't even receive an update or anything, they just all randomly got flagged out of nowhere for no reason. Why are all of my addons suddenly marked as unverified and disabled, and how can I enable them all again?

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

Although the Norton Toolbar now appears in 42.0, the Identity Safe feature does not work with. Firefox does not provide the same level of browsing assistance that Norton's Identity Safe does, and using Firefox without the Identity Safe requires many additional keystrokes and much additional wasted time. Norton assures me that the Identity Safe should be compatible, and it works fine in Internet Explorer. Norton claims that the Firefox "checkers" are still vetting the program compatibility issues, but how long will this process take? Using Firefox without the Identity Safe is so cumbersome and tedious that I may have to try Google Chrome or go back to Internet Explorer, although I have used Firefox ever since it first came out. Please don't force me to switch. Thank you.

Closing as duplicate please continue with open thread /questions/982984?page=2#answer-527488 ~J99


I'm not even sure why I'm bothering this, as I can already anticipate the answers (i.e. try safe mode, create a new profile, clear cache, etc...), but whenever I try to access a Facebook page, I almost always get a hang and then a script error. I've tried all the "fixes" above and then some including experimenting with add-ons/plugins to see if any of those were the problem, and to no avail. This also happens alot with ANY kind of page that has an embedded Facebook "like" button. That includes A LOT of sites, these days, so I'm constantly getting script errors during my Facebook sessions.

Anyone (regular users) else have this issue and have any creative solutions, or is Firefox simply sucky at properly rendering basically anything that has to do with Facebook? I see that this issues seems to be completely ignored in each "upgrade" of the browser. The only thing that even half-way works is QuickJava, but as I'm sure users of this extension know, that can completely render hyperlinks unusuable, so you're constantly having to switch it on and off during loading of pages.

I really just want this here for documentation purposes.

Please answer each question separately:

Even though Google is my default search engine, I have selected the remaining 6 default options under 'One Click' Search Engines.

When I type a letter, it brings up searches for my default Google but the icons for the other search engines are in the bottom left corner.

1. Am I supposed to click on one of the icons to bring up a search for that particular search engine OR is my address bar search supposed to show searches for all seven search engines?

2. When 'Never Remember History' is selected, am I still able to select the 'One Click Search Engines' that will automatically be displayed the next time that 'Remember History' is selected OR can I only choose the one-click search engine options when 'Remember History' is selected?

3. Before signing into my old account, I noticed that users have to create a new Firefox account, even if they have an existing account, so that is what I did-Is that what I was supposed to do?

4. With this new account, will I automatically receive an email notification when someone responds to my thread?

5. Periodically, when signing in with my new account, I receive a 'Bad Request 400' message. Other times, I am able to sign in but the top right corner does not show me as signed in so I have to sign in again; Are these known glitches?
