Up until today, my address bar had a down arrow that I could click to open the menu and select the sites I wanted. Now it's different. Now there is no down arrow and when I click on the address bar it opens a menu with a bunch of different sites that never were in there before. In fact they're the first ten of my new tab sites, which DO NOT belong in my drop down menu, and I can't delete them from the menu. I want this back the way it was.

Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

MBP Pro mid 2012, Firefox 79.0, High Sierra 10.13.6

I want to backup my bookmarks. When I do the following, the Library window opens but the Import and Backup button is missing. I've attached a screen shot.

1) Click Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks from the menu bar.

2) In the Library window that opens, click the Import and Backup button in the toolbar.

I am moving to a new MBP so I need to do a backup to import my bookmarks on the new computer.

Thanks for your help

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at support.mozilla.org.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have just migrated from back up of my 2011 iMac to new 2019 iMac.

When I open Facebook it opens to a page with one persons posting. When I try any of the clickable links on that page they open to blank pages.

When I use Safari all is working as normal.

I have Firefox 79 and Mac OSx 10.15.6.

I have tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode to no avail. I have also done a reset to default settings but again no avail.

Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

For many years, I have had trouble with the rendering of https://www.chase.com/ in my Win10 Firefox install (see attached). This does NOT happen in my wife's install. I have been a user for a long, long time and this has persisted even through the update to 79.0 today. On the same machine, it renders fine in Chrome (see other attached).

As I said, the problem does not happen on my wife's computer and since it works in Chrome on the same computer I know this must be something wrong with my Firefox install. I have tried running with --safe-mode and the problem persists. I have repeatedly cleared site data/cookies and even the entire Firefox cache. The problem persists.

While I suspect there is still something hanging around in my profile that is causing this, I don't know what it is and I am loathe to erase my entire profile and start anew.

Any suggestions on how to get to the bottom of this mystery?

Thanks

There was a message saying it has to be reviewed by someone first... Is there a way I can retrieve what I wrote so that I can re-post it as a new question? I can't find it anywhere, and don't want to have to re-invent it.
