Hi. I'd like to ask whether it is possible to somehow move bookmark from Bookmarks Toolbar to actions bar, particularly near "Home page" button. Because when I open "Customize" my Bookmarks Toolbar gets folded and therefore I cannot place anything but extension shortcuts there.

So I've recently updated to v83 and find out that that annoying address bar is back. I don't really want to use Chrome.css because I'm not good at programming or anything like that and I am afraid I might break my browser.

I have the solutions for v77 on my about:config and tried toggling them true/false and restarting my computer but I think Firefox "fixed" those workarounds.

Anybody have any new suggestions? Or am I stuck with this (I wouldn't mind it so much but it goes to it automatically when I open a new tab and that annoys me. I'm happy the history part of the workaround is still working cause I do NOT want anyone knowing my history. That's my business not theirs).

I got this message when clicked on a link within my online banking site after I had logged in. It was followed by a reference to Javascript and the suggestion that additional software may need to be installed. As suggested on forums I restarted Firefox with add-ons disabled (safe mode) but the problem persisted. I have Javascript enabled in Firefox.

I tried in MS Edge and had no problem with this.

Here is the link I am having trouble with: javascript:callAjax('/AUGCB/JBA/mmInit/flow.action','COAAppLayout');

If someone has an idea how to fix this please let me know?

Hallo und guten Tag,

ich möchte gern mehrere websites als Startseite haben, wenn ich den Firefox browser öffne. Wie das geht wird auf der Firefox Seite sehr gut erklärt.

Zwar ist es mir gelungen, google als Startseite durch drag & drop auf das Haus Symbol zu ziehen. Jetzt würde ich habe gern weitere Registerkarten als Startseite festlegen.

Wenn ich (wie in der Erklärung) jedoch auf die Menüschaltfläche mit den drei Strichen klicke und danach auf "Startseite" klicke, ist das Fenster "Startseite und neue Fenster" leider inaktiv, so dass ich nicht weiterkomme. Wie kann ich dieses inaktive Fenster aktivieren. Wo liegt der Fehler.

Ich hoffe sehr, dass mir bei diesem Problem jemand helfen kann und würde mich über eine Antwort sehr freuen. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Beste Grüße, Sabine

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!

Good Day When I log into some secure sites and it sends me a verification code to enter and I enter it. I am then asked if I want to add this device to the trusted device list so that I won’t have to verify it anymore, I check off yes. The next time I go on the same site it once again asks me to verify. Is there something in the settings of Firefox that is not set up right so that these sites remember this device has been added to the trusted list? I have tried this on Microsoft edge and it works. But I prefer Firefox.

Hello, I'm a person who has recently started using the calls on discord more frequently, which means that we like to screenshare the content we're browsing and we want to do that without pressure. It is completely fine when it comes to people I know IRL, they know my name, they know my last name, they know my email, I'm not worried when it comes to them, but, if I'm sharing Firefox, I always have to remember that I should stop sharing before clicking those three lines for the right side menu, before I accidentally show my email, which contains my real name.

Is there any option to protect me? To hide the email, or the entire option, or just for it to say something like "My account"?

If the feature does exist, please let me know! And if it doesn't, I'd like to have it for a future update.

Thanks in advance.

YouTube Input Lag/Delay on Windows: SOLVED

Hi there, not a question but I wanted to put this out there for those who may be running into the same issue as me. I hate searching for things and not finding a straight answer, and I'm hoping that I can bring light to others who may be undergoing the same issue.

I was infuriated by YouTube (and only YouTube) and how slow it was to respond to pretty much any command I sent via my keyboard. Clicking was fine, but if I wanted to skip 5 seconds in the video by mashing the right or left arrow a bunch, it would buffer those key presses and then register all at once. Basically, YouTube was lagging out of its mind and decided that any kind of action I wanted to take on the page would be done incredibly slowly (by modern computing standards, so ~700ms). I play rhythm games, so any input delay more than about 2ms will annoy me to no end.

This ended up being something called GC or garbage collection, and it was "minor GC" and "non-incremental GC" and something to do with a Nursery being full. Whatever that is, switching over to the Call Tree function in the F12 performance menu (F12>Performance>Start Recording Performance>*input commands on video*>Call Tree) told me that the function GC was taking up around HALF of my time recorded. This gave me a place to start at least, and I'm glad that Firefox has this feature and that it's user friendly. I know NOTHING about webpage design or coding, and it wasn't that hard to figure out what was going on.

Expanding the menus was helpful, and I found out that it was actually my Kaspersky Antivirus causing the issue. I dug around for another hour or so and found this helpful article on how to fix it.

A TL;DR from that article is, if you have Kaspersky, go to Settings>Additional>Network and untick "Inject scripts into web traffic to interact with web pages"

This script injection was doing something to slow it down, most likely trying to scan and monitor the inputs I was making on YouTube to be sure I wasn't getting myself into any trouble. Hope that this helps anyone else having this issue, and any moderation can mark this as solved.
