I updated my Firefox version either yesterday or the day before. I'm currently running Aurora 29.0a2. Ever since I updated, I've found several issues:

I am no longer able to customize my browser according to the steps found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-firefox-controls-buttons-and-toolbars?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=How+to+customize+the+toolbar

When I go in to customize, all I can do is move around the buttons. I used to be able to add in spacing, but there's no longer an option for that. I can't move my tabs bar underneath the url bar, which is how I used to have it (shame on me for clicking "Restore defaults"). Is there another place where there are proper customization options?

Also, my status bar seems to have disappeared. On the status bar I had the loading text and hover-url text, as well as fox clocks. The entire bar is gone. I can manage with Status4ever, but if I try to have the status text show up in the actual status bar, it doesn't. There is no bottom bar at all. Is there some option I need to select somewhere or something?

Thanks in advance.

When I am watching a YouTube video, Firefox Developer Edition freezes, then when I close the window, Windows says plugin-container.exe: A Breakpoint has been reached. This also happens when I right click a flash player video.

I've tried toggling "dom.ipc.plugins.flash.disable-protected-mode", reinstalling Flash, and reinstalling Firefox Developer Edition.

This also happens on normal Firefox as well.

Had Aurora about 6 weeks, Firefox Aurora about 2 weeks and was working very well. Then starting about a few days ago, unable to update and also unable to download latest version from the your site.

Only other browser I use is Opera. won't use Chrome, or Explorer. Firefox is no better, and Firefox works on my system, no better and I like being on Aurora and getting latest ....until now..since it won't update.

Again, I only use Opera and Firefox Aurora, no other browsers. Was going to try Safari, but the agreement language for Windows PC's from Apple, was very user unfriendly.

Firefox just randomly crashes at different points while browsing, sometimes it is open for a few seconds, other times it will stay open for a few minutes, but it never fails to crash. One thing that always makes it crash is visiting my email. I can go into my email on yahoo.com but once I get in I see my emails for about 2-4 seconds and then Firefox crashes again, never fails. It was a very large hassle just confirming my email address to put up this ticket x.x I could really use some help on solving this problem :c

With FF not running, I'll be using my computer and FF will open to an empty page... and maybe 30 seconds later it will close. This happens at random times. I've looked through Sync & Auto Update settings and do not see any controls established by FF that would allow it to run autonomously. Any ideas?

A recent upgrade introduced a regression for me: FF crashes as soon as I use FUS to switch to another user account or even to the login screen.

This is on Mac OS X 10.9.5 (old but stable and I need to stick to it until further notice), I have an external screen which is also the main screen (has the menubar).

I haven't yet figured out how to get access to the stack backtraces (before or after submitting) but it looks like FF is trying to access some resource that gets invalidated when FUS triggers. It's the only application I've ever seen that cannot survive a FUS trip...

Can anyone reproduce this?

In windows 8 the screen can be split into a desktop half and app half, it would be very useful if Aurora could be opened in the app half of the operating system and allow normal desktop work to go on in the other half, on a windows 8 desktop I can see no advantage in using Aurora instead of Firefox if this is not possible, it is a bit of a let down to be honest, I thought Aurora was an excellent and practical idea.

Is there a way for this windows 8 app to be opened as an app, or is it limited to desktop?


Thank you for your help

It was working fine until some point I am not sure what happened.

I been OCing stuff lately so not sure if that has something to do with it. But I have latest Aurora and Greasemonkey, and for some reason the process loads, but not the program. It doesn't display at all.

I had no idea what was causing it and kinda started removing one by one and found out which it was.

I even tried removing all the scripts but that didn't work.

Tampermonkey works fine with Chrome atm. So I do not understand. I have pretty much the same scripts installed.

For any possible information would help. I tried asking about greasemonkey but nothing from that atm. My problem seems kinda unique so I am posting here to possibly find this out. It bothers me not using my scripts I like.

Have url bar and tabs on same row to save vertical screen real estate

All I need in terms of "chrome" is two rows: Row 1: from left to right, url bar, bookmark star, tabs, new tab button, home button, AdBlock Plus icon, Stylish icon. Row 2: the bookmarks toolbar.

I don't need a title bar or a menu bar or any other buttons. That's it. The rest of my screen shows me the web page I'm on. Which is what I want.

I could do all that with the Customize palette in Firefox from versions 4 up till version 28.

Now, I've installed Aurora (Fx 29) with Australis. I cannot use the Customize palette to move the url bar anymore. When I drag it, it just slides back.

I know there are two extensions, OneLiner and CTR that allow me to address this issue but ... I don't want to use CTR because it has a lot of other code I don't need and OneLiner doesn't work as well as dragging and dropping the url bar where I want. I'm also not sure this extension is being maintained.

My questions are: Why was moving the url bar via the Customize panel made impossible? Is there some sort of CSS (and the Stylish extension) to do what I want?

This move will hit users of small screens. I was quite happy until version 28. Version 29 is going to make me sad because the increased wasted area on my screen.

I'm having the same problem as this old support question. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/814083

Issue is that the answer seems outdated and when I search in the forums and MDN, if feel like I'm entering a rabbit hole.

Basically, I have Kubuntu 16.10 and Fire Fox 51.0a2 (2016-11-14) (64-bit). The KDE system theme is a dark one. Now what happens is that all my text boxes, in FF, are also dark. This makes it very hard to input text as most of the time the text is black or grey.

I looked into adding a userContent.css file in the chrome directory of my profile. Folder is not there, so I created it and the css file: input, textarea, select {

  color:#555 !important;
  background-color:#fff !important;
  -moz-appearance: none !important;

}

Found a chrome folder under /usr/lib/firefox/browser and copied the css file there. None of these did anything even after closing and reopening FF.

I do have "Use system colors" unchecked under Color Preferences...
