Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

Greetings from Earth. My Firefox bookmarks in my Dell PC are suddenly altered in that many of the contents of folders (that had been alphabetized by me as I added to them over the years) are now mixed and random-- no longer in A-Z order. I woke up the other day to find this surprise. Is there a simple way to rectify this problem that doesn't involve me rearranging them one by one to their former order, or will I just have to live with the bookmarks in this new way? I did nothing unusual on the PC or with bookmarks to cause any changes. Thanks in advance for help and/or advice; it's appreciated. A fussy Gen X guy is obliged.

I am experiencing a issue with firefox for a few months. The issue is, on some websites the favicon and uploaded images appear as scanned lines. Also the same issue whenever i upload any profile photo to my firefox account (doesnt matter which format i am using). Same issue when i uploaded images to facebook story or whatsapp (whatsapp is fixed now). I am sure its related to my browsers config because using firefox on other devices, I dont face this issue along with other browsers. It would be great if any volunteer could point out the possible cause.

In SETTINGS I do not see another "option" of this "dumb" feature like Firefox has used for decades? I PREFER the SEARCH BAR as it will KEEP my SEARCH 'script' if I get a search not wanted. Then all I have to do is "modify" the SEARCH TEXT and search again. I am trying to get use to typing my SEARCH in the SEARCH bar on the FIREFOX Main screen but is getting hard to break DECADE old habits since I started using FIREFOX after I gave up on 'NAVIGATOR' a 'few' decades back? OK, I am 'ole fashioned' sometimes... I never believed in "change" for "change SAKE". AM I missing something in SETTINGS that SHOULD ALLOW us to choose the NEW WAY OR THE OLD WAY for at least awhile. I would have these issues IF I knew the way to fond, use an older PROFILE as I would still be using versions in the early 80's.

Until recently, the search bar that sits under the Firefox logo on my home page was a search bar - it provided nothing but suggestions / auto-completions as I typed, and the text appeared in and below the box.

The address bar, at the top of the screen, was where I typed addresses. They both did their respective jobs well.

Starting a few days ago, attempts to type in the search bar (under the Firefox logo) resulted in a mixture of suggestions, addresses, sites visited etc, appearing in and below the address bar (at the top of the page).

Is it no longer possible to have separate search and address bars? I've poked around in settings and while I've at least managed to turn the address bar into something like a search bar (no addresses or history), this seems like a second best solution - it was useful as an address bar, just as the search bar was useful as a search bar. I've lost some functionality.

Is the search bar on the home page now just a decoration? Can it be made to function again as such - offering nothing but suggestions/auto-completions? Is this an update, or a glitch in my install?

Hi all,

I am running the latest version of FF and Win 10 64 bit. When I access our local DIY store, bunnings.com.au, I get an error message "some error occurred". Pressing F5 gets me to the site. This does not occur on Chrome, Edge or another PC with the same versions of FF and Win 10.

Running FF in troubleshoot mode does not resolve the issue, neither does clearing cache.

However, if I open google.com.au and search for bunnings, then click on the link in the result, I do not get the error.

Does any body have any ideas? AFAIK, it started when Bunnings moved to a new website design.

Regards,

Steve

My Firefox can't play any video on any websites. Youtube video keeps on buffering forever and I can't click on the play button. But preview images still shows up when I hover the mouse over video bar. This happened after I updated to latest FF version

I've tried every solutions provided by Mozilla Support: clear caches, disable extensions, uncheck hardware acceleration,.... you name it I've tried it all. Other browsers are just fine, but since FF is my main browser for work I don't want to switch to another one just for music or video.

Thank you for your support.

Hi, I have never used firefox console, and definitely don't want it to be opening automatically on firefox (89. windows 10 64 bit) start. How do I stop it from doing this please? Behaviour started a few months ago. Behaviour doesn't happen in troubleshoot mode, but still happens in normal mode with privacy extensions disabled.

Hoping screenshot not necessary, as when I tried to attach to this post, error message popped up from Firefox saying it was too big.

Thank you

The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!

I'm an old Firefox user. Thank you for excellent Browser!

However, I've seen some bad things in Firefox 89, so I'll report it. After upgrading Firefox to 89, access from behind the proxy no longer reaches all addresses beyond the firewall. I noticed that the page opens correctly when I play around with the settings, which is related to the HTTPS-Only Mode and Automatic proxy configuration URL settings. I specify the address of "http:" in the Automatic proxy configuration URL. In that case, if HTTP-Only Mode is ON, it seems that the proxy configuration file cannot be read correctly. When I turned off HTTP-Only Mode and reloaded again, the page was displayed correctly. Alternatively, I can give up the specification in the Automatic proxy configuration URL and switch to the manual specification. That said, before 89, all settings were displayed correctly, so I think it was a trigger for the change in 89. Is there anything you can think of? Is such a phenomenon happening in other people?
