Only a few add on. Just make add on feature like old version where a host of add ons were available which helped in avoiding separate softwares / apps..

Also the download progress bar. Missing. Very important. Not sure who in his sane state ordered this to be removed. Very sad

Hello there,

So, my issue is that some websites, only on Firefox, are logging me out as soon as I enter my mail + PW.

Those are the right ones for sure, and I tried in Troubleshoot mode to see if the issue persists, and it does.

Hence my request here, did someone encounter the same problem and managed to fix it? If you have any idea about what's worth trying, I'm all ears.

The most recent update seems to have changed something I can't figure out how to change back myself.

When I start a search in the Firefox search engine box (the one in the middle of the screen), the text is instead entered in the address bar at the top. The search still performs the same but it is more of an aesthetic preference. Is there an option I am overlooking that enables the search text to appear in the search engine box, rather than in the address bar?

I did try disabling the address bar but that just stopped the search function from working.

Perhaps this is some artifact of being on Firefox 89.0 but I've noticed that even though Firefox isn't running - even Task Manager has no mention of it - a small icon of Firefox is shown in the main taskbar all the time.

I had to uninstall Firefox on my Mac: it was constantly telling me that I had to close it because another Firefox window was open. But that window was unfindable... Anyway, I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, created my profile with my former data (mail address and pw), but still none of my stuff (pw, tabs, bookmarks etc.) came back ... How can I transfer my Firefox data from my Android phone to my Mac? Thank you so much for your help! I had so many very important bookmarks!

I go to a website (say the National Hurricane Center). Click on a storm. Then click on "discussion" (this is where the forecasters post basically a blog about their thoughts about a storm). After the latest "update" (I say "stupidity") from Mozilla, I get a blank page. If I "select" the type, it appears. In Chrome, the "discussion" text appears with no problem.

WTF is wrong with Firefox? I go to delete a recurring date on my Google calendar and get blank, but I "select" it, the type appears.

You idiots have again changed settings that normal users cannot easily fix. I don't want to go in and change the reg:whatever, blahblahblah ... why does this kind of crap happen?

I might have accidentaly reset my firefox browser and since I wasn't logged in I kind of lost all my bookmarks and saved logins. Luckly I found some backup files, seemingly with all the information I need, but it's in the wrong format and I have no clue how to import them to firefox. The screenshot I have is of the files I managed to dig up.

Hello, only Firefox is blocking this website for me. I wanted to get away from Chrome but I may have to go back if this can't be fixed. The website is https://rotary.vsgdover.com/ How can I just add an exception to make this site load? I really don't want to go back to bloated Chrome just for one silly website.
