When I type something on the address bar all the suggestions get jammed up with title text overlaying the URL. This was not happening until 2 or 3 updates ago.

I have tried disabling all addons, the text moves a bit but still impossible to read. I have tried disabling Win10 Typing suggestions/autocomplete, nothing changed.

I'm a paid subscriber of ActiveInbox and had been using the Firefox plugin. Unfortunately it has been out of commission for over a year. On their support forums they've commented that after a substantial rewrite of the plugin, things got bogged down within Mozilla's review process. It has been stalled ever since. I just asked for a status update on that thread and was told "there is no change in the way Firefox process updates" and nothing is happening right now. As a paid subscriber, I'm just trying to get something more definitive as to the status of their plugin as I need to decide whether or not to continue to pay for the service. I greatly appreciate any information.

It use to be after sizing the URL and Search to be even lengths, and then in Customize placing the Reload icon between them, the 2 windows would remain relatively the same length. Now, however when completing the steps the Search window is reduced considerably (see attached). How to get the URL and Search portions more or less equal?

To reiterate, websites the employ a custom right click context menu work, but doesn't override the default Firefox context menu. The websites I've tried to use the right click context menu are Slack, and Gmail.

Attached is a screenshot of me trying to right click an e-mail inside Gmail's website.

I trust Firefox to keep my paswords safe without a lot of hassle. Suddenly I am being asked to "verify my identity" before I can view my password. I don't have time for this. It clearly says in the Logins and Passwords tab that my identity is sgillies12@gmail.com. Then it refuses to give me the password because it says that's NOT my identify.

PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. I need to do some work. thank you.

I've got a local HTML file that I use as a home page and I'd like to replace the new tab page with it as well. The recent update (76), have broken my previous method of doing this. I did this using an autoconfig file described by user cor-el's answers to the same question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251199.

After the recent update, my browser fails to read the .cfg on startup and tells me that each time I open Firefox ('failed to read the configuration file'). For transparency, the code in that .cfg file looks like this:

// Do not remove this comment

var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

var newTabURL = "file:///path-to-my-page/index.html";

aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);

aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

Not sure how to put that in a code format on this forum. If anyone has any idea why the recent changes have broken this or a way to fix it, I'd appreciate it.

Edit: I've figured out it fails on the last line, as commenting that out causes it to no longer fail to read the config file. Can you not set the newTabURL anymore? Has it been renamed to something else?

Firefox makes it way too hard to find this 'ask a Q' page.

I began using Firefox Color & made a theme. Now I cannot change it. I went back to Firefox Color, selected the theme I made & deleted it but every time I open Firefox that theme comes back. I want to use—and make stick—the theme I have collected in Add-ons. How do I get rid of that annoying theme made on Firefox Color. (No, the new annoying theme does not show up in Settings >> Themes.)

Hello- Please clarify the article "Multi-Account Containers" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers#w_open-links-in-new-tabs-and-containers . Number 4 in the section "What you can do with Multi-Account Containers" says that you can "Assign a website to a container, so that a specific website will always open in a specific container." The article doesn't describe how, and it's not obvious to me. Please describe specifically how to do this. Thanks!
