can't figure out why firefox doesn't hide when clicking the - in the top right corner...

Skrevet

This is a fairly recent issue. The browser is up to date and runs fine except it mostly doesn't want to hide/minimize when clicking the - in the right corner. If I close and reopen it it works for a bit and stops shortly after. This is super annoying as I use this ALL the time for my work. Any idea... ? thanks

Can you try this in Safe Mode and see if this still happens?

Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).

If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:

  • Click the menu button New Fx Menu , click Help Help-29 and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.

If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:

  • On Windows: Hold the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  • On Mac: Hold the option key while starting Firefox.
  • On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox -safe-mode
    (you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)

When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".

If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps in the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.

To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem.

sorry for the late response. thanks for the help but it didn't make any difference unfortunately. It's actually a lot more random than what I thought and I can't find a pattern that could explain the reason why it wouldn't hide. Oh well, I'll live !
