This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

I'm using Windows 10 and just updated to Firefox 78.0.1 last night. Normally, when I open a new tab, I push the down arrow key to bring up my browser history and access my most-used sites. Upon updating last night, I discovered that I can no longer do this. When I press the down key, nothing happens. To get the same result I'm used to, I have to press the space bar, but I've been doing this a certain way for several years and the motion is completely ingrained in me. If I turn Top Sites back on in the options, the drop-down list will open upon pressing the down key, but that of course only brings up the Top Sites. That's not what I want. I tried rolling back to the previous version, 77.0.1, but that didn't fix anything. If I create a new profile, the problem persists. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know it sounds like an extremely minor issue, and maybe that's true, but I just want to use my browser the way I like using it. I'd appreciate any help/input.

Also, I suppose I should mention that I didn't make any changes to my preferences prior to this issue.

I've been using firefox for many years now without any trouble. But just last week, I found it takes a very long time to load even a simple web page. For example, google.com takes 4-5 minutes to just show the text, and 7-8 minutes to fully load. I also use Chrome and it does not have this problem. I've already tried "refresh firefox", and uninstalled all plugins, and it is still slow. I am using Firefox version 78.0.1 (64-bit) and using Windows 10.

When I tried to log into the browser with my firefox account, instead of logging in I was created a new account. It turned out that by entering the login options it was redirected to the Chinese version of the page accounts.firefox.com.cn. Even if you change the link content manually, I cannot log into my European account in the browser. Why is this happening? Is my data which I accidentally used to re-register on the Chinese version safe?

After the latest update on firefox I am no longer able to give facebook the permissions to use my Microphone which means i can no longer make calls. My hardware and software for my headset is up to date, as i use it on Discord with no issues what so ever. when i go into Privacy & security and click on Microphone permissions, it has removed all the websites that i have previously given permission to use it and am unable to add any new ones, the block new requests asking to access your microphone is also unchecked, this is really starting to frustrate me and hope it can get fixed ASAP

It is a folder in program files (x86)\common files\

When I mouse hover over any of the EXEs it says it is a Firefox program. Google tells me nothing.

The problem is, it (the update.exe) keeps causing games to minimize whilst I am playing. I know this, because I installed Windows Focus Logger. I ended up deleting it. So far I have had no issues with Firefox functionality.

What is it for ? And why is Update trying to phone home ? And why is it ignoring all Windows 10's settings to not grab focus ?

Forms (such as a newsletter sign up or unsubscribe) do not show up in Firefox on my Mac.

These forms show up normally in Safari on Mac. They also show up normally in Edge AND Firefox on PC and all other browsers that I know of.

I of course use Firefox on my Mac and would like these forms to show up properly on that browser.

Thanks, Amy

Hi everyone,

When I check my email, i have a tendency to just type in "gmail" and then search directly from the search bar. For some reason Firefox decided to give me an option to "add http://" to the beginning of my search term to 'make it easier'

Problem is now it just puts in http://gmail/ which causes issues as it doesn't add .com and I can't find the option to remove this from my search bar or bookmarks. I've reset and cleared the history and everything, and can't find this option. I'd like to just disable it outright, as all it's done is cause a headache.

Attached is the autocomplete filling in the first entry, which I cannot find a way to remove it. I realy like firefox and know there's a way to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!

I have a ton of tabs open on my iphone and was looking for an easy way to clean them up. I have everything synced up between my macbook and my iphone. Is there a way to close tabs on my iphone from my macbook? Going through all of the sidebar tabs on a big screen is so much quicker but I'm not seeing a way to close tabs across all devices. Any advice would be great. If this isn't possible, this would be a great feature to have added to firefox. Thanks.
