Just started happening a few days ago. Firefox had crashed itself (as it does from time to time) upon loading again it asked if I wanted to restore lost tabs, I said no so I could start fresh. Now when I try to click a bookmark, load up a page, type in a URL, Google something in the box it quickly confirms and stops right away (as if it is done) and all the tab says, still, is 'new tab' and nothing to show for it. As I am having to process this request through a different computer, I do not have details on my plug-ins at this time. I have recently updated to the newest Firefox edition. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the browser with no effect.

How do I get the + button to be directly adjacent to the most recently opened tab?

I have read other questions similar to my own that say click the return to default button on the customize page. I have done this, and yet the new tab button is still not where I want it. Instead it goes to the far right, which makes no sense (in my opinion). I try to move the button so it is next to the most recently opened tab, but rather than going where I want it, it goes to the far left! This makes using Firefox extremely uncomfortable, as I keep closing tabs by accident! I generally have 6+ tabs open at all times and this makes it very inconvenient. If someone could help it would be appreciated.

The homepage refuses to stay to what I put it as (www.google.com). I have change it in the about:config files. I have followed all the support documents. I have ran virus scans and Malwarebyes. I have completely uninstalled/wiped Mozilla off of the computer and redownloaded it fresh and still the same thing happens

browser.startup.homepage http://undefined?uid=undefined&uc=undefined&ap=undefined&source=undefined&page=homepage&implementation_id=email_0.0.12

That is what it reverts to every time I close Firefox and reopen. It defaults back to the above text no matter which way I change it to be www.google.com instead.

I used to use Pocket back when it was a simple addon. I used it without ever registering, with syncing disabled.

I only do two things with it: (1) add something to my reading list, and (2) view my reading list and select something to read. I don't want syncing, I do want privacy.

Now that it comes with firefox, seems like there's no option to use it without registering. (Sounds like a regression to me). Or is there?
