Don't know how it arrived there, but this bar is blocking the tabs of Firefox when I'm browsing. It's a single line bar which would, if I ever wanted to use it, allow me to search the web via Chrome. But, I don't! My Firefox screen used to fit below this bar, but that, too, has changed, somehow. Seems the gremlins are in there! And... when I open Word, or Excel, the top line of tabs is also, now, hidden behind the Chrome bar. Making it a real pain to do anything. Yes, this Chrome bar is there with every application, whether Firefox is open or not. I would greatly value any contribution that will rid me of this extremely irritating issue. I tried to upload a screenshot to show the offender in situ, but the flower petals are still spinning after 30 minutes. so posted it as is.

Hi all -

Instead of firing up FF and then clicking on the toolbar icon - "Open a Private Browsing Window" every time, is there a way to create a Desktop Shortcut to click on which brings up FF in Private Browsing mode?

Perhaps I can place it in my quick launch toolbar.

Also -

Is it possible to set a default "homepage" for Private Browsing mode?

Any help always appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I don't know if it's a firefox bug, or maybe a change made recently (in the CORS code) cuz firefox keeps complaining about the request being blocked (and I don't remember this happening, I remember the content of the file being displayed in the site, a json translation file, some months ago):

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://static.domain.com/js/DataTables-Spanish.json. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

I have the subdomain properly configured, in fact, the other requests like css/js files are being read and working without problems, but this particular request (made from inside a javascript file) is being blocked with a CORS error, even when I can see the header in the firefox network monitor:

Accept-Ranges: bytes Content-Length: 932 Content-Type: application/json Date: Thu, 05 Jan 2017 22:52:32 GMT Etag: "3a4-52ef9645b6940" Last-Modified: Sat, 26 Mar 2016 20:19:09 GMT Server: Apache/2.4.25 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.2j X-Firefox-Spdy: h2 access-control-allow-methods: GET strict-transport-security: max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains;

After the automatic update to 50.1.0, I am no longer able to connect to https web interfaces of appliances on my LAN/VPN.

Before the update, I would receive a "Secure Connection Failed" page with an "Advanced" button that would allow me to confirm the security exception and continue to the web page.

Initially after the update, there was no "Advanced" option and the error code was SSL_ERROR_INAPPROPRIATE_FALLBACK_ALERT. As part of exploring solutions, I did a refresh of Firefox. After the refresh, the error code is now SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP and there is still no "Advanced" button.

I can access the page via Internet Explorer after confirming a security exception. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.

My iMac menu bar disappears after clicking on Firefox browser. Can anyone help me with this?

One of the screenshots reflects the browser without the menu bar and a light blue strip in its place. Also, I am able to raise the browser over the blue strip. When the menu bar is active, the browser butts up against the bottom of the menu bar.

Safari nor Google Chrome have this issue, only Firefox.

Please help.

I don't think I did anything to make this happen. I did not install any new extensions or plug-ins. I don't even use Yahoo. I changed the settings back to default in the General tab under Options and that did not work. I tried all of the solutions that were suggested in the forums (making sure there was nothing at the end of the target URL listed in the properties/checking extensions) and nothing worked. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A virus hosed my Windows 10 system. In restoring my apps, I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. It created its own default profile. I have saved earlier Profiles in a separate folder on a different drive. I copied them back to the default folders in the Users folder. When I run Profile Manager, it only shows the one Profile just created but won't recognize or list those other profiles. I need some help, since those profiles have all my Bookmarks, extensions, etc. Please help.
