I just updated to 23.0, and for some reason changing the search engine in the search box also changes the default search engine in the URL bar as well. I'm not sure if this is intended functionality (I hope it isn't), but it is kind of irritating. I wasn't sure if it was related to an addon I installed around the same time, so I tried disabling that, but the problem was still there; therefore, I'm tentatively assuming it has to do with 23.0.

(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.

I had customized it for 4 rows of 6 columns, each website pinned to its slot, and did most of my browsing straight from there. The new home page offers five slots for "top sites" and an enormous field of blank space (I am simply uninterested in pockets, highlights, snippets, etc and have removed them instantly). What are the controls in about:config that will let me return to an approximation of my old home page?

The new browser experience is great overall and I love Mozilla. However... I am going to need my speed dial back...

I just got Firefox 23, and found there is no more Enable Javascript checkbox in the Content area of Preferences and there is no more ability to prevent changes to the functioning of the context menu and prevent the changing of the size or position of the window. I really do not understand why certain settings to control what may be done by web page code to the browser are being gutted out. Presumably it means that any smartass who can write a web page can force my browser window to be whatever size he wants it to be. That used to drive me crazy in the past, and it will do the same thing again. Is there any way to make a capability policy that could stop the resizing of the window? I just found out that I can still use the context menu if I use Shift-right-click. Why the change?

Autohiding the tab bar does not work any more. I thought the big argument for trying to put tabs on top and into the title bar was to save space? Forcing the tab bar to be visible all the time will certainly not save space, so why do it?

My bookmark menu was removed from the bookmarks toolbar. I tried to find a button that would put it back, and there are two bookmarks buttons in the customize window. Are the developers trying to make things harder, or what?

Before the update, I was able to use Stylish to get this functionality. However, something is broken with how -moz-box-ordinal-group functions. The only valid entries are 0 (places it above the Menu Bar) or !0 (places it at the very bottom).

Neither of those two places are what I desire. Here is what I'm aiming for, from top to bottom:

Menu Bar
Bookmarks Toolbar
Tabs
Address Bar

See this Stylish for a picture of what I used to have:
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

So, my question here is, how can I restore this functionality? Having bookmarks below the address bar does not follow logic, in my mind. And this "now things are easy to customize how you want it!" thing that Australis is supposed to allow... doesn't let me customize it how I want it.

Any help would be appreciated, be it a config setting, a plugin, or some CSS I can plug into Stylish.

I opened Firefox and saw View Pocket List. The link takes me to information about the add-on, which I don't want and haven't signed up for. I can't right-click on the bookmark.

I tried the following, posted by edmeister (sp?) __________ That menu item is part of the new Pocket feature in Firefox 38.0.5.

See if disabling the new Pocket feature makes that "view pocket list" bookmarks menu item go away.

Type about:config in the Location Bar and hit Enter. Accept the warning message. Put this pref in the Search field to filter those advanced preferences

browser.pocket.enabled - the default value is true. To turn this feature off - either right-click that pref and select Toggle or double-click that pref to change the value to False. __________

Even after I changed the value to False and re-started Firefox, the View Pocket List is still in my bookmarks menu. I want to remove it. How can I do this?

I just had to have my laptop fixed, and the shop had to format it. So, I had to download all the programs I had, which included Firefox and Norton Internet Security. Once I updated Firefox to version 21.0, the Norton Toolbar no longer appeared in the Firefox screen. Why? Can something be done so that the Norton Toolbar appears in the Firefox screen again? I sure *hope* so, as I depend on their Identity Safe program. I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows 7 - 64 bit. If you need any more information, please ask.

moderator locked this old thread about Firefox 21 and a Norton Toolbar - Firefox 21 is no longer supported and users should be using the latest Firefox 24.0 version

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.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

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?

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

Locking this "beta" thread. Firefox 22 was released yesterday.


I have a Windows 8 laptop on the Beta channel. I updated to Firefox 22 Beta yesterday and noticed that the Roboform toolbox was missing. I reinstalled Roboform, just to make sure, but it was not present in the browser windows, nor is it on the Toolbar menu. It does show as an installed add-in, and the toolbar is present in I.E. 10 and Chrome.
