Been trying to get the titlebar back for a while now, it just up and vanished and I never noticed it until recently when a webpage was displaying important information in the titlebar but because it was not present, I did not see this information and purchased a product that contained an ingredient which I am allergic to.

BTW: The correct terminology for the item in question is Window Caption

Found this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943363

Didn't help.

Found this about:config setting: browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar It was TRUE I turned it FALSE Titlebar is showing.

Where in preferences is this toggled?

And is it possible to toggle it by accident with a shortcut key?

If I shutdown my computer while Firefox is open, it will start up automatically with all of my previous tabs open next time I turn on my computer. It does this faster than my VPN can start up, thus exposing my true IP to what ever sites I had open when I turned off my computer. Is there any way to make it so that Firefox doesn't do this?

I need help. Since several weeks, Firefox will randomly begins to crash. Black screen, white screen, everything in between... I tried updating my laptop's drivers, a complete reinstallation of Firefox, down to erasing files inside the computer... The problem disappears for maybe a few days, and then bang, here it is again.

Here are the five latest crash reports:

I'm not that tech savvy, and at my wit's end. I need help, please.

Since Firefox 73 was released I noticed after upgrading that Firefox became insanely slow on a significant number of websites. For example youtube.com or finance.yahoo.com were really slow at loading compared to Firefox 72. CPU usage on one of my cores goes very high.

This page for example would load the main screen fairly quick then it would stall while it loads all the stock widgets on the page which it doesn't do with Firefox 72 :

https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/SPLK

In general I've noticed an overall loading sluggishness even with simple pages like google.com etc. Just not as snappy to load.

In all cases Firefox 72 and Chrome work fast and snappy. Tried Firefox 73 and Firefox 76+ and they run awful.

When I first noticed the issue back when Firefox73 was released, I gave up and rolled back to a Firefox 72 backup and thought it was probably a bug that would be sorted later. Tried again today with Firefox 76 and I still have the same issue so I have had to roll back to Firefox 72 again.

Things I have tried that have NOT helped :

Disabled all addons/extensions Set Default Theme Disabled DNS over HTTPS Cleared cache/cookies Deleted content-prefs.sqlite Disabled hardware acceleration Tried different values for content process limit Disabled smooth scrolling

Can anyone help please or am I going to be stuck on Firefox 72 forever?

Thanks.

After Firefox updated, I can no longer access www.apple.com. This is the error I get now:

Blocked by X-Frame-Options Policy

An error occurred during a connection to idmsa.apple.com.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this context because the page has an X-Frame-Options policy that disallows it.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You.

Today May 25, 2020 my wife rec'd email <breach-alerts[at]mozilla.com> from Firefox Monitor warning of a data breach at the Artsy web site. She doesn't use the Artsy web site and doesn't have Firefox installed on her laptop or phone. I Googled for "Firefox Artsy data breach" and did not find a report of a data breach at Artsy. We assume this is a phishing email, but I wanted to check with Mozilla to verify my conclusion. I do use Firefox on my laptop, and I haven't received a similar email. I could forward the email if that would be helpful. Thanks for your help. Ray Wynn [email address]

I have a website, a typical three column design, with NAV, MAIN and ASIDE elements. A reader view option appears in Firefox, but ironically, only the ads in my ASIDE element show up when I click it.

The MAIN content uses SUMMARY/DETAILS to group things. Personally, I would think this combination would scream reader view content, yet MAIN is ignored entirely. It has some links, but so does my ASIDE (advert) content.

My ads are simple blurbs and links, no pictures, for my own ebooks, and are not served by a third party, so I can see how they could get picked up and I'm fine with that. What puzzles me is why the MAIN content is being ignored.

The site in question is: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/ It is marginally safe for work provided you do not click any of the links. No explicit images.

As a test, I even tried changing the SUMMARY/DETAIL of my "What's New" section to ARTICLE followed by an H2 heading. No change in behavior. https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/test.html

The HTML passes the W3 validator. I searched Firefox Help / Stack Exchange. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

starting about a week ago, my Yahoo mail and yahoo account makes me enter username and password EVERY TIME I close the browser and reopen it. This only happens when I am using Firefox (ver 76.0.1). I still have chrome and explorer on this machine but rarely use them. But, when I sign in to yahoo on either one of them, it will keep me logged in for 2 weeks as always. I have not changed anything in firefox settings to cause this, nor have I added any other new programs or add-ons. I do not store any passwords on the machine and do not want to start now.
