I, like most people, use ad-blockers (ABP) but ad providers are always discovering new ways to annoy; is there a way to prevent Firefox from creating new tabs and windows, or ask for user confirmation whenever such event happens?

Hi all, Long time user of Firefox and love it, however on my work computer it is very unstable. When loading up it seems fine until I click into another window and on returning FIrefox is is full screen mode.

I then have to Alt\view\fullscreen and then top right, restore to see the taskbar once again, however on top of this it seems very unstable and often when trying to click back into Firfox it will not allow me to do so and appears as if it has crashed. I then have to Alt-contr-del to close the program and stat again.

Have tried resetting Firefox without joy so a bit stuck as to what the issue could be? Any assistant would be greatly appreciate as I run all the same plug-ins on my home computer and works perfectly!

NOTE: ASP MVC 5 application, using bundling and minification turned on.

Problem is that if the value is set to "0px" then firefox automatically changes it to zero. I had to set the value to 0.1px to make it work properly soon as I added 0.1px resolved the issue.

max-height: calc(100vh - 0px); is converted to max-height: calc(100vh - 0); in firefox once the application runs.

The image included in this post shows the issue in action.

I am personally studying the subject of "Neuroplasticity" for my own further education? I had a quite serious accident in 2012, which unfortunately left me with "slight" brain damage? I use the word slight to describe it, as that was the word "experts" used? How tragically mistaken they were in using that word? hahaha !!!! Anyway, some specific parts of my brain made me a physical cripple? By strength of will & great physical effort I was able to turn the clock back in my mind to an earlier era in my life? About 20 or 30 years? Although I was 65+ when I left hospital, visits to a friend in The Philippines, & great deal of help patience & effort from her enabled me to get my mind & body back to the level of fitness that I thought I had immediately before the accident? Which I perceived or imagined was approximately age 45 to 50? Anyway, more on this subject for anybody who has sufficient interest to write & enquire? All that I need to know now is how to create a bookmark or file containing only "NEUROPLASTCITY" items or website links?

Our company made the decision to abandon Microsoft Office products and move everything to G Suite. As part of the Analytics department, this has caused quite a few challenges. We had an Excel template to produce a report that is used frequently. The template was moved to Google Sheets and the challenge has been that the output from the software produces the information in such a way that a simple copy and paste to Google Sheets does not bring in the correct data. We figured out that using Paste Values Only (Ctrl+Shift+V) corrected the problem and was sufficiently convenient to use. However, that function has just stopped working.

It seems to coincide with the end of our licensing for MS Office products, but it only affects Firefox, and continues to work in Chrome. I am trying to figure out what the problem is, but have been unable to find a solution online. Any ideas?

When I was organizing several bookmarks in my Bookmark Folder entitled "Main Dishes" (as I remember), I believe I double clicked or similar and lost the total folder which contains between 100 & 200 bookmarks! I have not turned off my computer. The closest topic I could find has to do with "Smart Bookmark Folders" which does not seam to apply. If my brain is correct on this, I thought I saw right below the Smart Bookmark folder the appropriate topic regarding bringing back a bookmark folder, but somehow that topic has seemed to disappear. This folder's information has been gathered over a period of 2 to 3 years. I would be so grateful if you could help me. Thank You....Charles Perryman PS...I AM SO SORRY...SOMEHOW THE FOLDER HAS NOW REAPPEARED IN MY LIST OF FOLDERS!!!! I AM SORRY TO TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS....I AM VERY HAPPY, BUT VERY DUMBFOUNDED!!!!

So many websites have these info bars that stay at the top of the page as you scroll down, wasting valuable vertical space. I can remove them by blocking that element in adblocking extensions but I wonder if there was a way of getting rid of them entirely, perhaps something in about:config? I don't even know how to describe them. Is "floating" the right term or should it be "fixed" or "permanent"? Its hard to find something if you don't know its name!

Trying to install 73.0 Beta 11 but keeps failing with "patch apply failed." I think this is a workstation permissions issue but I need more info...

I'm currently on 73.0b5 (64-bit) on Windows 10. I'm trying to use the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button from the "About" screen to update the browser. This normally works but today, it's having problems and I suspect it's due to our corporate policies being changed around.

I'm going to submit a request to our enterprise idiot to have this fixed in their whitelists, etc. but before I can do that, I need to know what kinds of permissions to request. What's responsible for the update process and what folders need to have which permissions for this to work?

Because right now, pressing the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button results in Firefox downloading the update but when it tries to install it, it fails with the "Update failed. Download the latest version" message in the "About" screen (when it was working last week without a single hitch).

According to my about:support details, I'm seeing the following:

- Update Folder: C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates\<Long String> - Application Binary: C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe - Profile Folder: C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<string>.dev-edition-default - Antivirus, Antispyware, and Firewall are all governed by McAfee Endpoint Security (which hasn't been an issue in the past).

I suspect that all of this is due to our enterprise guys modifying the permissions that our "elevated permissions" has... So once I have a better understanding of what things need which permissions, I'll be able to request that the elevated permissions be modified accordingly.

Any insight into this would be appreciated. It's a shame we don't have logs that clearly explain what folders or files lack whatever permissions to better understand bottlenecks like this. Maybe we do have that and I'm just not aware of it?
