On a form input text box such as password or search box, the cursor sits outside and can't input anything. Looks like the firefox's input focus offset too far and won't respond to any thing you type. This is happening in Win 7 and does not happen in win 10 or Chrome, Edge, or CM browser.

I recently updated to 43.0.1, running MAC OS Yosemite, 10.10.5.

After the recent Firefox update, every time I open Firefox or use the "Home" icon to refresh, the "Preferences" page is located in a tab window. I click on the (x) to close the preferences window and the window closes. If I then click on the Home icon again the "preferences" tab again appears.

Why? This should not be occuring.

My bookmarks suddenly stopped working when I click on them. The information is still there--I can right-click, copy the link, paste in my address bar, and open each site, but when I simply click on the bookmark, nothing happens. I tried updating Firefox again and it's up to date.

Using Firefox browser and have been using Yumprint for over a year including the other day. all of a sudden it disappeared after the wonderful, marvelous Firefox update (with all of my recipes, too!). I have been unable to re-install it; have tried troubleshooting, deleting files, Safe Mode and all the various 'solutions'. Does anyone have any idea or should I switch to another browser since, apparently, Firefox really only wants you to use their add-ons/extensions. Thank you!

This is not a big problem. The Firefox window gives me the option to continue to the login site but is not recommended. It is just an extra step to login. However, the support woman at Brighthouse thought that because of the upgrade to Win 10 I might need a plugin from Mozilla to prevent other glitches.

Today I tried to bookmark Bill Gates' blog in more than one section on my toolbar. I wanted it in the folder "Research" and in the folder "Shopping/books". I bookmarked it in "Research", but when I tried to add the second bookmark, it would only move it, not allow duplicate bookmarks. As I use bookmarks in multiple places, this is a problem for me. How do I override this?

Firefox used to have a simple, usable error console. Is there a way to make the new interface act in the same way? Since FF keeps removing features, it has become less and less usable. I just want to be able to see the same exact stuff that used to show up in the Error Console window without any extra information. I tried installing the Error Console add-on, but the code that it invokes seems to have been stripped out completely now. The Ctrl+Shift+J keyboard shortcut still opens the "browser console" which has a bunch of extra junk that doesn't pertain to the website I am trying to debug.

How can I make the browser console show me just errors or warnings thrown by the current browser tab?
