I am running Firefox 74.0 (64-bit). Starting yesterday, whenever I start a new tab, the cursor is placed in the address bar. I have no new-tab-related addons. I have ff set to open new tabs with ff home. I don't recall if there was an update yesterday, and I didn't make any changes.

I tried clearing my cache, and that didn't work.

I see this discussion from a few years ago (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1174932), but it describes the behavior as "normal." This may be, but for me, the behavior is abnormal, in that it didn't do that for many years, and suddenly started doing that yesterday. How to make it stop? When I open a new tab, I'd like the page to be open and neutral, with nothing selected, chosen, or acted upon. Thanks!

Sometimes when I reply emails, and then send the email, then the reply indicator on the main window dissappears.

So on the main window where it shows all the emails, there are supposed to be indicators where I have replied a message or not. that indicator appears momentarily then dissappears. Also sometimes a random message will go unread from time to time when the message in particular is read. Wondering if this is a problem with Canada's TELUS internet services IMAP?

I'm trying to import all Firefox saved passwords into Safari, and it keeps requiring me to enter my "Firefox master password" which I do not have. Even worse, when I went ahead and assigned a master password, Safari would spit out "master password incorrect" error and wouldn't import the Firefox passwords in. Apple says they don't have any reported problems and told me to ask Firefox. Please help.

Recently, some sites (WSJ.com et al.) require pressing the back arrow TWICE to go back a page, but in Safari only once. It's as if the site loads, then reloads itself and Firefoz thinks the reload is the page to go back to. This didn't use to happen. This is on a MAC/

Firefox "builds up" internet cache capacity to 1.0 GB fairly quick. I can easily delete it & do it about once a day. I go to about:config & change: browser.cache.disk.capacity from 1048576 to the default, which shows 256000 (kilobytes, I believe). I close Firefox & reopen. It goes back to the 1048576 KB every time. How can I "save" the default capacity? I believe that 1.0 GB is too large.

 I also notice that before I change the value, it is written in bold print & then change it to default, it is not in bold type.
 DOES ANYONE know the "answer" to my question????

Thank you

Hello,

I try to change the theme of FF to a dark mode but it will not work for some reasons. I changed it in the settings already and even changed it in the Windows settings (changed it to dark mode under "Choose your app mode") but the background of about:preferences is still not dark (I know it is working without any kind of add-ons because on the VM it works flawlessly).

I really hope someone can me help me out. Thanks in advance.

Oh and btw: I am using Windows 10 and the newest version of FF.

Linux - Kubuntu 19.10 / Firefox 74.0 / Facebook container - I get constant bursts of network traffic unless I disable access to fbcdn.net. (using NoScript extension) I tested Facebook with Chrome and this did not occur. There is no other activity occurring at the time. I have attached screen captures showing the network traffic.

Any ideas what this traffic might be and the best way to stop it.

"The email address used for your account is not allowed for add-on submission." For some reason, my email address is not suitable for theme submission.Unfortunately, I don't have access to e-mail with this address, because this address was provided by the temp-mail.org service. However, I still have my Firefox account login and password. Do I really need to delete my old account and create a new one? Why all these inconveniences? All themes are already moderated in full detail. This is just a set of color codes. What kind of security risk can these colors cause?

Scrolling Color graphics glitch on left side of Firefox while running EVGA Precision X16

Firefox version 74.0 (64-bit) EVGA GeForce GTX980 Ti

EVGA Precision X16 5.3.10 is running on my desktop, it is used to manage the graphics cards and enable graphics card overclocking (I am not overclocking, i use it to monitor GPU fan speeds and temps). I recently set this software to boot with OS.

What I have noticed is that when, EVGA Precision runs Mozilla Firefox is the only app (games, other browsers and other apps) to experience this weird graphics glitch, this particular glitch is not very evident from the screenshot of Firefox below but if you look closely to the left side of firefox, you would notice that a blue rectangle extends from top to bottom covering up part of the web browser, this is purely isolated to this browser. What is not captured in the screenshot below is that this rectangular block of blue changes color frequently and seems to cycle through each color in the palette.

Over the past few days, the solution to my problem was to exit EVGA Precision, however this is no longer the case and with that I have no evidence to conclusively say that this is related to EVGA's software. As this seems to be solely isolated to Firefox my belief is that this is indeed firefox.

Hardware acceleration is enabled on the browser and is set to default "use recommended performance settings"

please note: - Upgrading of Graphics drivers was carried out to the latest as of today, since issue has been ongoing before upgrade and after upgrade, I am ruling out graphics driver as a potential fault

if someone can assist it would be greatly appreciated
