The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

So irritating when the window is mis-positioned. Two suggestions:

-- New window method --

(1) With the Firefox icon active, press Alt+Spacebar and then the letter x to maximize. The Firefox window should appear full screen.

(2) Copy the following line of script code to the clipboard:


newwin=window.open(window.location.href);newwin.moveTo(0,0);

(3) Press Ctrl+Shift+k to open the web console.

(4) Press Ctrl+v to paste the line of code then press Enter to run it. A new copy of the same page should open in a window positioned at the top left of the screen.

(5) Switch back to the maximized window and close it. Firefox should remember the new window's position.

-- Rename file method --

Note: this will reset all your toolbars to their default settings as well as clearing the last window position.

(1) With the Firefox icon active, press Alt+Spacebar and then the letter x to maximize. The Firefox window should appear full screen.

(2) Open your personal settings (AKA Firefox profile) folder

Help > Troubleshooting Information > "Show Folder" button

(3) Switch back to Firefox and exit the program (e.g., Firefox > Exit or File > Exit)

(4) Wait a few moments for Firefox to finish updating files in your settings folder, then rename localstore.rdf to something else, like localstore-bad.rdf or localstore.old.

(5) You're done here. You can close this window and restart Firefox.
