This morning my option to display book marks doesn't seem to be there. I can display or hide the toolbar, but the actual display on the wide of the screen does not seem to be there and I can't figure out how to get it back. Did Mozilla change things or am I just old? thanks. brian

Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

I'd like to have, in my one firefox account, a 'private' profile with my private life bookmarks and a 'work' profile with my work life bookmarks. However, this doesn't seem to work. I open firefox with work profile and see my work bookmarks, then I close and reopen with private profile and see my private bookmarks, then I close and reopen again with work profile and now I still see my private bookmarks instead of my work bookmarks. Firefox just unsolicitedly takes the private bookmarks over to the work profile. This can't be how it's supposed to be, right? Because what would be the point of having different profiles? I hope you can help me with this.

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

I was able to change the font in Ctrl J by changing my system font (windows 10, Firefox font used to automatically follow it). However after the latest Firefox update, that no longer works for Firefox (my system font is still OK). Please help me change the Libabry font again! The default font (probably SegoeUI) is very hard to read on my computer, it's blurry and comes in light gray.

Note: I'm not talking about the website font (it's fine and can be changed in Firefox settings). The library font size is fine too, only the font itself is too hard to read.

Note2: I tried changing my system font to other random fonts (using the registry), restarting my computer in between etc. That still works, but Firefox won't follow.

I get this recurring error when I access this site: "https://nikonrumors.com/". The issue comes and goes. May work fine for days/weeks.

Here's the kicker: MS Edge & Google Chrome do not have this issue. When it isn't working with Firefox 90.0.2 (win10), it always works with Edge & Chrome, like now as I post this.

I tried to download a PDF file, but the download failed. However, Mozilla still thinks it's downloading, shows the download meter (stuck on about 10%), and shows the file in the downloads list, even though I have deleted it from the list ("Clear downloads"). Clicking the "X" next to the file name also does nothing. What's up?

When I was using version 88.x, Firefox had not crashed for years. Then all of a sudden, Firefox would crash several times a day. I looked and Firefox had updated me to ver 89.0. But I let it ride. Then Firefox about a month ago, Firefox stsrted to crash EVERY DAY. Then one day it crashed EIGHT TIMES IN A ROW and I mean when I hit RESTART, IT WOULD CRASH. I tried to revert to rel 88 but Mozilla WILL NOT ALLOW US TO REVERT BACK TO A PREVIOUS VERSION. When you do, the PROFILE gives you TWO OPTIONS: 'EXIT or CREATE A NEW PROFILE.' Certainly you do not want to CREATE A NEW PROFILE as you will LOSE, your history, add-ons, Bookmarks, EVERYTHING and you see a WHITE Firefox screen with nothing. So I choose EXIT and tried to put up with the CRAPPY ver 89. BUT FIREFOX KEPT CRASHING. TODAY IT CRASHED SIX TIMES IN A ROW......When I checked the VERSION, YOU HAD UPGRADED TO VER 91.0b6 (64-bit) AND IT IS NO BETTER.

WHAT IN THE HECK IS GOING ON. I DO NOT WANT TO LEARN CHROME OR EDGE AS I HAVE USED FIREFOX SINCE VERSION 1.0.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GO BACK AND KEEP YOUR OLD PROFILE, FLACKY OR NOT AS THAT IS BETTER THAN 'RESTARTING' FIREFOX ALL THE TIME.

MY VERSION 88 NEVER FAILED.

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

Hi. When Firefox added the screenshot functionality, it was very useful to me since i didn't have to open snip & sketch every-time I want to take a screenshot. I did notice that the ability to access the screenshot from the address bar was removed and moved to the mouse's right click options instead. I work with Microsoft azure and have to create documents for clients and by default, right clicking doesn't work on azure and some other sites. Because of this, i can't take screenshots using Firefox. Is there a way to put the screenshot option back to the address bar or maybe have it show up in the toolbar options? Thanks.

Please someone who is a real expert help me with this. The ones who take their own time. To help. Your all amazing. Wish those asses would have a help staff... Hah. I will give them a break. Google is the antichrist of huge companies with names like Microsoft and... cough copy lifting. Can they NEVER come up with it from SCRATCH? This is like Jeff Goldbloom in Jarassic Park! (I KNOW I sp'ed on that.) Ever notice how ALL the new software "kind of works". Makes me sick. Anyway. Remember him saying they didn't make it themselves. Just slapped a Google label on it.. hahah... Am sure there are MILLIONS OF us that feel that way. I figure he had the perfect description. Who the hell makes the "change your avatar" not work and EXPECT you to TRUST them with ALL your PRIVATE passwords. Logins. And be this moronic! Never thought I would be saying that about Mozilla. Wtf Happened? You hire people from Google? I am feeling all your guys pain for you man. This is some real stupid sh*t! Talking about wasting time when you don't have a beer. I just lost all my damned passwords. Because it did not save them at all. Having the DAMNED ENCRYPTED FILE ON OUR HARDWARE will NOT "compromise" it. WHY didn't you think of this already? I REALLY wanted that beer. I was SO PISSED I almost did something I have NEVER done before. I ALMOST installed Microsoft's explorer crap for Android. Hah. How fitting they put that on Google. That is SUCH a smack in their face. Anyway, here's your image everyone hates to see. I am sure... Go figure. Now that button down there does not work. No. I turned off all add-ons, even the extra protection in Firefox is off. And I can not press that DAMNED "Browse..." button. Wtf man. I really wish I had that beer...

Upon the subject action, Windows 10 takes a system/memory dump, sends it to Microsoft, and automatically restarts. Firefox appears to be initializing for about 3 seconds (after clicking its shortcut) and then the crash occurs. The display of the initial Firefox landing page is not obtained.

The blue screen of death (BSOD) has this message: KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED

Also, the networking software (NETGEAR) is rendered inoperable and must be re-installed upon Windows restart. Otherwise, my system is stable. Maintenance is regularly applied as it becomes available.

Firefox was a delight to use. But now not so much, as it's unavailable as described above.

If anyone has a fix, or a suggestion for obtaining one, it would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks!

Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.

I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012 Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina) Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.

Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?

There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.

I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.

Why would the default setting change to a unknown Canadian D.O.H. provider when I have a US version of FF installed on a upgrade? See enclosed.
