I've been using Firefox for years but this morning it stopped working. the little firefox button just kept moving left-right and never found the page. Eventually I gave up and uninstalled firefox but when I tried to reinstall it, it states that firefox was previously installed and allows me to reinstall. when I do that it always gives an error message that it was unsuccessful.

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

OK sorry about not getting right back, I ask for help then I don't follow through not the best way of doing this. So I have done some more exploring on this problem. I am not sure what's going on. So I am running dual display on a laptop running windows 10 . Seems to me everything is updated. So up on the main display (external display) it's OK everything seems to be great on it.

So if I go to the laptop display that's where my problem is. So what I have done is on max the window is where I get this problem. Min. the size window goes away if the screen's location is about 1" down from the top of the frame on the screen. If I move it up some just a little 3/4" it seems to be a small drop down window again. If I move it up even more not to the max but just up to say about 1/2" the drop down window gets bigger however it is still cut down with no way to scroll down to see the rest of the window. So what my thoughts are is the over scan of the video is too big? If so how do I take care of it? I hope this helps out. Let me know thank you for your help on this matter. So if I go to single display its all good on the laptop window.

UPDATE: So I have also played with other web browser, Chrome and Edge and I can't recreate it in those browsers. I adjusted the over scan so its not that. I can't get full Images of both displays at once to big of file.

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

I can't install a browser theme that I made on the Firefox Color webpage. (EDIT: SOLVED)

EDIT: Never mind! I was being dumb! I had to install the extension!

From "about:preferences#general" I click "Extensions & Themes" on the bottom left side.

This takes me to "about:addons" where it says "Feeling creative? Build your own theme with Firefox Color." at the bottom.

I click the second sentence which is a hyperlink that then takes me to "Firefox Color", the website to make your own themes.

I made my own theme using the "Custom colors" and "Custom backgrounds" and then saved it using the "Save" button that has a heart above it on the ribbon at the top of the page. This adds it to the "Saved themes" tab on the ribbon that includes (from left to right) "Preset themes", "Custom colors", and "Custom backgrounds".

However, when I go back to "about:addons" to apply my theme, it is not there, even after refreshing the page.

There is no "Save" (aside from the one that put the theme into the "Saved Themes" tab), "Install", or "Download" buttons on Firefox Color for my theme as far as I can see.

So, what am I doing wrong? I'm about 99% sure that I am being big dumb right now and missing something glaringly obvious in this whole process.

I appreciate any and all help or advice! Thank you in advance!

Hi.

I have bought a new laptop and have installed the Firefox browser but have forgotton my Firefox password. The password reset email from Firefox does not render as HTML; the email just presents as plain text. So, I cannot see the password reset link.

I saw a 'hack' that suggested copying and pasting the email text into Notepad and save as a *.eml file but Notepad doesn't have the *.eml option. I'm on Windows 10.

Any ideas how to resolve this issue.

Many thanks.

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

Please continue here: [/questions/1292692]
I'm using Firefox with a mac with OSX El Capitan 10.11.6. I've used it for many years, with no problem accessing streaming radio and archived radio. Now, I'm beginning to not be able to have access. I'm wondering if I need to update to a newer version but am loathe to do so for fear of unintended consequences. Any ideas?
