Accidentally or after upgrade (I did not notice) I got bookmarks side bar at right part of FF window. Instead of default left side, where it was before.

How can I get bookmarks sidebar back to the left side? Where it is placed by default in other installations of FF.

Thank you.

P.S. I saw several answers about Ctrl+B. It is not the case. I can hide it and bring back. But I need it at left side instead of current location.

there is no way to close mozilla support. There is no drop down menu. I've had computers since the 1980's and never ran into this. Shutting the computer down and starting up produces the mozilla support page. No options available to get out of here or to delete mozilla firefox.

I recently had a very frustrating problem with Flashplayer. Whenever I tried to watch any kind of Flash video, the video would black out - and any tab I opened would be blacked out, as well. Eventually, the browser would crash completely. Found a problem about it in Mozilla support, but no solution.

Long story short, the problem was AdBlock Plus. (It may have gotten corrupted somehow???)

When I completely REMOVED it - restarted FireFox - then reinstalled AdBlock Plus, the problem was fixed.

How do I arrange it so that I'm not having multiple closures when I only want to close one hotmail message, NOT HOTMAIL?

I'm very tired of trying to close one message, only to have the hotmail account itself slam shut, thus requiring re-starting. Surely it's not supposed to act like this. A warning message doesn't help with the actual closure. I just know it is going to happen and am annoyed, again.

Note: This is not my default email account, nor do I want it to be. I want to be able to access two different accounts by opening one of two browsers. That part works but this closing thing is infuriating.

I do some freelance web design. I just replaced my laptop with a tablet last year (Samsung Galaxy 10.5 S). I want to do web development on it - I work from a terminal doing Ruby on Rails and web development all the time. It would be awesome to have the F12 developer tools handy in Firefox for Android, but sadly I've waited for a while and there is no indication they will ever appear.

Do NOT suggest using a remote debugger - I'm not testing the layout of pages on my tablet, I want to be able to profile, view source (without an add-on) and such. I have seen this exact question marked closed by suggesting remote debugging, and I fail to see how telling me to use my tablet next to a laptop or desktop is a solution. Telling me to carry a second device means I don't need the tablet at all, when my intention is to ONLY use the tablet.

My tablet has a huge screen resolution and a powerful processor - more powerful than some laptops? Why is Firefox for Android neutered? I would understand disabling it by default to help those with less powerful devices, but why remove something that would add a competitive edge to your product, and is already integrated in desktop Firefox and has been for years? I prefer Firefox, but if Chrome adds web developer tools for Android first, I'll switch to Chrome.

There are people today using a tablet as their sole computing device. Please do not relegate us to a second-class Firefox experience!

Thanks, Ryan

V37.0 FF for Android. Have cleared all cache and private data. Still experiencing password/username unknown login failures at online banking sites like Wells Fargo and BofA. This is a repeat post from 2 days ago, thanks to the lone responder. I have cleared data/cache and ensured latest version is installed.

Are there other suggestions?

Thank you in advance for your good counsel.

I am still looking for accessibility fixes. I have sensory processing issues, and all the animation online *hurts,* so I need ways to disable animation.

If I search for accessibility, it returns results involving access to this or that, unrelated to accessibility for disabled users.

If I search for disable animation accessibility -access it still returns results involving access to this or that... What is a point of searches if the results don't involve important search terms and contain excluded terms?
