I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.

Hi, I use the Selection Context Search extension and had a lot of custom search providers defined for it. It's some hours that I synced my Firefox on PC with the first-used Firefox Developer on same PC. Both are Portable versions from portableapps.com. I also set the services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state = true to sync toolbar customizations.

Now, I found out all my custom search providers are gone, neither exists on Firefox nor Firefox Dev. Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to find an exported setting file for my extension.

Is it possible to somehow recover settings of this specific extension from profile or somewhere?

Thanks

i had 2 versions of firefox on my desktop, so i deleted the older version....wrong. it was the one that had all of my bookmarks, themes, and plugins, so i had to start all over. i got most of them back on but now when i get to my browser with my customized theme, the whole top is solid even though the screenshot of the theme i downloaded shows the address space and search space to be white. the tabs lines are also hard to see. if i remember right from quite a while ago, i had to change something in about:config to get the address bar and search bar to be white and for the tabs to be a different color than the rest of the toolbar. i'm using 76.0.1 (64 bit). see screenshot below

Last week I had a problem with a Windows update and had to initiate a System Restore in order to get Windows back up and running. Everything seems fine now except for the fact that videos will no longer play. I have looked online and found various suggestions, none of which work. The videos work with Google Chrome, so the problem seems to be localised to Firefox. I am using Windows 10, and when I checked it said that I am using the latest version of Firefox.

My browsing behaviour involves opening a handful of pages many times a day. So, I start to type the address & the autofill feature completes the url, then I press enter. But, there is a slight inconvenience in FF's autofill feature. In Firefox, it doesn't show the full url, only the homepage of that domain and not any additional paths. In Chrome, it shows the full url along with paths. See the images for example.. 10.254.254.4/0/up is my ISP's login page, so I open it many times. But, I have never opened the 10.254.254.4 ; there is nothing there. Yet, typing '10' shows '10.254.254.4' as first result in FF & '10.254.254.4/0/up' in Chrome.

How do I customize Firefox that it shows the full address instead of only the homepage?

Hi,

I use a 3x8 grid of top sites as my home page / new tab page. However, I usually split windows to half of the screen size, and when doing that the grid becomes 3x6 and some sites simply disappear!

Why not simply reshape the grid by adding extra rows? It would seem the most logical design choice, but I cannot find any setting or extension to do it.

Also, I feel like the tiles should be resizable since they look a bit small in high-resolution screens, but that's a different topic.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, if it is not then please tell me where I should do it.

I use my monitors in a vertical set up, one on top of the other. When I have a firefox window maximized on the bottom screen, the top of the window extends too far and ends up covering the top screen by 8 pixels. I've tried renaming xulstore.json, and while that does work, it ends up being too large again by the end of the session. I'm not sure what else I can do. Thanks in advance!

I have been trying for a long time to get firefox to install either of the two add ons (preferably both), Widevine and OpenH264 but have gotten no result. I have tried just about every solution I have seen online. I have re-installed, tried manual install, using about:config, clearing the HOSTS file, etc. Please tell me there is some way to force these to install. It is driving me mad.

I cannot Sign.In in "Firefox Send". The funny thing is that I am logged-in in Firefox browser and that I can log-in in Firefox Send in any other browser. Only Firefox gives me a problem. I love both the browser and the service and it is annoying (and inexplicable) not to be able to sign in from Firefox. Please help. Thank you

I am using Firefox 76.0 on a Linux Mint 19.3 cinnamon desktop. For some reason I can no longer send a newspaper item by email. Until recently I simply ticked the email symbol in the sidebar, and up popped an email form to which I needed only to put in an address. Now when I tick on the box, there is no result, although there is a line at the bottom of the page, saying 'mail to, and name of article'. I have disabled all add-ons, and the result is the same. It is the same when I have tried on other browsers. However, on another computer in a different room with the same setup, there is no problem. I have torn out my hair for three days and would be very grateful for help.

As the Title suggests.

My Add-Ons are all removed from my Toolbar and stop functioning whenever I set my History settings to "Never Remember History."

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the Add-On's, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox. But none of this works.

I want to be able to use my Add-On's AND have Firefox not remember my history. It used to work before, but now it just won't let me.

Any suggestions?

Is there a way to associate a tag with a transparent colour or no colour? I want to be able to tag a message without that interfering with the colour already applied to that message.

This way I can tag any messages as 'Hide' and then switch between 'View All' and 'View All except messages tagged as "Hide"'. That would allow me to reduce clutter by hiding stored messages that don't need attention.

As a sidenote, it is not clear how multiple tags/colours applied to a message are prioritised.
