i do not seem to be able to make firefox browser not hide my taskbar at the button of my screen my taskbar has locked it in position but it still hides it i do no have an option that says 'stay on top' or anything like it it is an win 10 system on a asus( in this case extremly shitty one, yet newish and almost unused) that do no have all the usual settings compared to other computers i have used elsewhere or in the past.

i have read 4 different guides to fix it from your forum, most of it i understand and have tested, did not work. as i am pretty sure i havent changed any settings my self i do not know where to change it. (it is the first time i really use firefox, i usually use explore (reliable and dosent seem slow ) or crome(but that thing slows everything else down) so i thought firefox would be the best option there was a guide to rename a file but i do not know much about that kind of this so i havent, and i thought uinstaling and reinstalling it should be too much just to change such a little but very annoying thing.

i hope you have the needed info in order to help me fix this problem have a nice day Rico Larsen

The Reader view and the read aloud function within the reader is one of the most useful functions within firefox web browser. I am perplexed that pocket (when you use getpocket.com) does not allow for this. For me at least this makes pocket useless on the web browser. urge you to fix at the earliest.

Under "History" I added the site to "exceptions" and selected "block" to block cookies. I checked "clear history when Firefox closes" and closed my browser. I started Firefox again and tried to perform a search but the search was still rerouted through "searchencrypt.com". I don't see a way to block this website from access to my computer without setting up parental controls or delete any ...extension? ...add-on? Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Thanks

There is a mass of tracking detail that is brought up and is not erasable where I use the 3-bar menu item to print an on-screen article. This is new in current Firefox. It also comes up when I use the old ctrl-p command Frequently, lines of text are also missing at the foot of a page. How do I fix these issues?

I work in an office and, while I do have private computers, everyone's login credentials are common knowledge. (We're a small company and our de-facto "IT" guy has everyone using the same password, I suppose it makes things easier for him?). With this in mind, I would like to be able to make sure that when I leave the office for the day my synced bookmarks are not available.

I've tried going in and disconnecting the account but it just prevents further syncing and the bookmarks remain. Is there anything I can do?

I have several places online, where I create code in dreamweaver and then I copy and paste it onto a website - firefox used to be fine when I did this. Now that I've updated, it won't. I can copy and paste other things, but not code. Its not dreamweaver - It will copy and paste code into text edit or pages. It's not the computer - when I try copy and pasting into chrome, it also works fine. but firefox - nothing, i just get whatever the last thing was that i copied - it seems to be a problem specific to dreamweaver - as if i try to copy code from elsewhere on firefox and then paste it it seems to work fine - I've used firefox for years - with no problem. and now... i'm going to have to switch everything over to chrome is I can't fix this - help!

I have a financial website I frequent and have been saving a webpage to view later. I use file from the toolbar, then Save page as, Web page complete. The file appears to be saved, but when I try to open, the entire page as previously displayed does not open (partial heading do come up, no content). When the file is saved, another file called the account summary file also is created.

Error message: an error occurred while attempting to retrieve data and navigation information is unavailable.

This approach had been working fine until the middle of last month. I am running Widows 7, recent updates to the system, did occur. The older file will still display the data, but the newer ones will not (partial heading). Is the problem because of my computer, the internet website, Firefox (59.0.2), a combination of things or something else entirely?

I cannot see any comments posted on a Typepad blog. I don't think I will be able to link said blog because it is NSFW but I have provided a screenshot of what I see. When I click 'View Comments' nothing appears. This issue only began sometime last month. I have cleared my entire history, cookies, and cache; as well as disabled add-ons using the restart feature, nothing has worked. I am asking now if anyone has other suggestions for a fix.

Thanks for your time.
