Hi, I have the latest version of Firefox 67.0 installed on my computer. I open a new tab and connect to my gmail account. Then I open a private browsing tab. A new tab is showing like any other regular normal tab. I type google.com in the address bar. I see that the supposedly private browsing tab is connected to my gmail account. This should not be the case. Is there any option or setting I should switch on or off in order to retrieve a private browsing that does not behave like a normal tab?

Thank you for your help!

I am completely unable to view the web page for tumblr when I sign in, getting this error: "The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.tumblr.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have cleared the cache, deleted cookies, cleared the site history, checked cookie permissions, and updated firefox and the error is still happening. Help!

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

Firefox 64-I get a diagnostic saying that it is not default browser-in settings,Firefox(32) is my default & there are 3 Firefoxs listed-which is 64?

I primarily use Firefox 64. I have Firefox 32 on my computer to use when a website can't handle Firefox 64, e.g. San Diego Gas & Electric. Both versions are current, version 75.0. When I open Firefox 64 each day I get a diagnostic saying that it is not my default browser (Firefox 32 is). So, I've tried to change my default to Firefox 64 but nothing works - there are 3 "Firefox"s listed when I click on the default settings page and I've tried every option I can think of but I can't seem to change my default from Firefox 32, even going to IE, Edge, Chrome as default then back to Firefox 1, 2 or 3.

How do I make Firefox 64 my default? Should i try to uninstall Firefox 32 and then see if I can ger Firefox 64 as my default before re-installing Firefox 32?

How do I change the icon for the Add-ons tab?

I'm trying to use CSS to change the icon and name that is displayed on Firefox's "Add-ons" tab (I'm using pre-Quantum Firefox - ESR v52.9).

I can't seem to find a way to only affect the Add-ons tab's icon because that tab doesn't have a unique ID, and so any changes that I make inadvertently affects the icons of all tabs, not just the Add-on tab.

I have been able to isolate the TEXT for the Add-ons tab by using .tabbrowser-tab [value="Add-ons Manager"] but I'm not sure of the "after" syntax to use to replace the default tab name with a different name.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Get identical response and error message from Internet Explorer.

I have successfully added photos to my "Ham radio" QRZ.com website for many years. But today - I'm getting this bizarre: CKFinder Config file message, which I've never seen before.

Re-booting the PC doesn't fix it.

No browser is perfect, so I decided to give Firefox a chance. Really need the printing options Chrome has, to just right click anything, or even to select any area, and get the option to print it or to save as a PDF. It is almost a deal breaker for me. Also, I found some possible solutions in your blog, but there are in French! and can't find the translator!!!

Firefox 63.0.1 in Linux I'm looking for CSS code to make the folderTree in editBMpanel open with the folderTree already expanded, rather than click it hundreds of times per week... I've found everything about the panel, except how to make it automatically expand.

I mean the down arrow to the outside of the panel's UI, that gives access to scroll the whole bookmarks library. The button that has tooltip, "Show all the bookmarks folders."

I'm assuming this CAN be done w/ CSS. If not, that explains the trouble finding how.
