I'm using a variant called Waterfox Portable, it was behaving just fine until I changed my GFX card, I can still use it but I had to enable my menu bar at which point the whole window paints just above the screen (about -50px), if I don't enable the menu bar the address bar gets cut off instead from being painted yet the whole GUI behaves as though it is painted as a result I have to click below what I want to get what I want. Is there anyone who knows how to potentially fix this?

How and where can one configure how tabs are created/managed? Why is TAB management so primitive, clunky and inconsistent in Firefox?

I used to use an add-on for TAB management in older Firefox versions, because the way Firefox handles tab-configuration is generally horrid. I had hoped that would be fixed in the latest version, but it is NOT. If the Firefox team prides itself on delivering a fast and user-friendly browser, why can't it allow users to configure tabs :

-where they are created (at the end, at the beginning, right next to the actual tab, on the right or left of the actual tab) -whether a new tab can be created with a double click on the titlebar, or right-clicking the titlebar or an existing tab -whether we want a list of followed tabs and/or history or not -to show only right-menu options for tab-management that I need / want OR to add menu options I'd like for tab-management

Right now my experience of how tabs react, is downright irritating and inconsistent (and if has guided me more than once to the about:config page in a desperate attempt to make tabs at the very least consistent) I love using Firefox (it all started with Netscape really) and I wouldn't use any other browser if possible, but, guys and girls... please fix the usability and flexibility of tabs... it would make firefox the right tool for EVERY browsing job Thanks

Have tried using task manager to close extra browser webpages but on closing using expand function of task manager 3rd of five goes to 'web page has crashed; close or restore'. Pick restore and 3 'end task' closed sites come up again. Choose close and reopen your website and opens 5 Mozilla/Foxfire sites again. Lose Lose situation. Solution? I have three laptops and two PCs; none used for business. Longer I used the computer device this situation happens. 4 of five computers on Windows 10; one computer on Windows 7 Pro; doesn't ever have this problem.

Do you ever have an employee that answers these questions? Or is it always the volunteers.

My bookmark directories have doubled - meaning I have 2 of each directory. Also, within bookmark directories I am seeing the saved webpages duplicating or, in some cases, tripling. This is making it difficult to use Firefox.

In the last 24 hours, the body of a gmail will not load. I can see all the emails that have come in but when you click on the email the body is empty, only the subject line shows up. I use gmail from the firefox browzer. When I try this in Chrome the email is fine. I can also see the emails on my phone. I contact Google and that is how we diagnosed the browser to be the issue.

I've already cleared my cache.  ;-)
