Is there a way to increase the height of the Tab bar so you can drag the window around without opening tabs or dragging a tab into a new window?

The FF tab bar is so small that it's impossible to grab the window and move it, like to look at something hidden underneath it or make room for another window or app or whatever. The only places I can see to grab the window without accidentally opening tabs or dragging the tab off the tab bar into a new window are at each far end of the tab bar. So you have to decide which way you want to move the window and choose the appropriate end of the tab bar. Compared to Chrome, the FF tab bar is really skinny - even though the difference is only about 1/16 or 1/8 inch, that small difference is enough in Chrome to grab the window where you want and drag it without opening the tab right below where you're grabbing. I hope this description makes sense - hard to put it into words.

I have used Firefox for several years and have been very happy with it. However, in the last few/several weeks, I am finding that when I click on a link to go to another screen, it either takes forever or does not work at all.

What steps should I take to help with this problem? I am using Firefox 78.0.2 (64Bit).

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

I had a thing happen that surprised me:

  1. Open private window
  2. Download a file (slow enough to give time for testing)
  3. Open "Downloads" (becomes a tab in private mode, filling the main browser window)
  4. Close any other private tabs
  5. Close "Downloads" tab
  6. Downloads are terminated without query

My expectation was that the user would be queried in some way.

Today I switched the Firefox Sync account from old one to new one (just personal hobby, won't use the old e-mail anymore). I received this message: "The confirmation email we sent to ******@********* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data. If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account." because the new e-mail was inactive for 48hrs so. It was my bad, I registered the new e-mail to Firefox Sync not long after it was made, so I have to wait for 48hrs till it is usable (provider's policy). Err... I'm not sure if the e-mail I wrote got auto-censor or not, so I censored it myself. I can give it to you whom concern later, if necessary. But I don't get the point here. How can you protect my Firefox data if it is just a whole new account that even not login successfully first time, still waiting for e-mail verification?

I have a bookmarks menu link on the bookmarks toolbar. When I save a new bookmark to one of the folders it does not appear. It does appear when I click on the saved history icon. However, if I open the bookmarks sidebar from the history icon and navigate to the same folder, the new bookmark appears but it is missing many other bookmarks that are in the other folder.. I can also save the bookmark to the toolbar and it appears there. Also I can cut an paste the bookmark from the toolbar to the folder. I've tried disabling add-ons and that doesn't fix the problem. There clearly are two sets of bookmarks. How do point Firefox to the one I want?

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

this extremely annoying hyperlink tool tip pops up and gets in the way of mouse clicks. if im not careful I'll accidentally click it instead of what i intended to click on. it likes to pop up over my email check boxes too when im trying to select mail to delete. if i do accidentally click on it, it will follow the link using the tab im currently on which is the brunt force of the annoyance. it absolutely gets in the way and infuriates me to no end. I dont have any add-ons that specifically relate to it, and i cant find anything doing a google search that relates to it either.

Up until recently I was using a 11 year old laptop that was slowing dying. I was finally able to acquire a new computer and get it up and running just before an accident (as if out of a comedy movie - the roommate's cat knocked a full bowl of cereal onto the old laptop) effectively destroyed the old machine. Thankfully, Firefox Sync meant that everything I had been working on appeared when I got the new machine fully functional...until I logged on to Firefox this evening to find my Synced Tabs empty with just a "Want to see your tabs from other devices here? Connect Another Device" message.

The old device is toast...I don't know if it will even turn on again, much less function enough to sign into Firefox. Synced Tabs was also working just fine for a solid week until it just up and disappeared. Is there some way to restore these? I know it's my fault for relying/expecting Sync to always be there and not backing up the links I had open immediately, and this is a mistake I won't make again...but I'd really love to not lose everything I had open.

Thank you very much in advance for any help or suggestions.
