I'm using Firefox 57.0b3 (64-bit). Since I can't roll back the last update, how do I get new tabs to open to my home page setting as it used to do?

I think the question pretty much sums it up. I did do some research and found that I should change the "browser.newtab.url" setting in Options, however, I can't seem to f… (read more)

It seems that you enabled sync, and now I find you have stored data that I do not want you to have. I understand that you have strict data sharing policies. I don't care. I operate under the concepts of 'need to know' and 'single point of failure'. I do not need or want the convenience of stored data.

I was on the internet, things going fine, left for a couple minutes, when I came back had a blue screen. Nothing worked but the cursor. Turned computer off/on with power switch, restarted FF but my settings had been changed. Put them back to what I want except for the search bar. It is now beside the address bar not where I want it - below the address bar and all the way across the window. How do I get the search bar under the address bar? I have already looked through all of the Options and Customize, maybe I missed it, so be specific. Thank you, Bernadine

I set the default search engine as Google but it's being redirected to Yahoo. Fix I read states to use: help, troubleshooting information, refresh Firefox (in a pop up window). Pop up window never shows. What's the fix? This is supposedly a virus. Not Yahoo's fault. thanks

Haven't downloaded Adobe Flash because I am concerned I will recreate the performance problems which I experienced on my desktop under Windows Xp.The machine became unusable in 2014 with response times extending into minutes.I read an article in The Age Green Guide which suggested that these issues might be attributed to an incompatibility between the earlier version of Firefox and my Dell Desktop running Windows XP.Am I right to be so cicumspect ?

Hi, my name is Dave. I have been using Mozilla for some time now. Each time I get familiarised with the layout, someone designs it the other way round? When the new 'e-mail' came out I needed to send an e-mail asap. I found it had all been changed round !!! I was not pleased because there was no way to change it back !!! Later on that day I spent 45 mins sorting it out, back to the 'old' type of page which works fine. Now you want me to update to the New mozilla, which...and I can put money on it....will require me to learn it all again !!! LIFE IS TOO SHORT to keep doing this. Please stop doing this Thank-you.

I want to do something as follows... but is it possible on Firefox?

1. More than one person use same PC and browser. 2. If I sign in browser using my account, browser apply my setting and log in web services like twitter using my saved account and saved password automatically. 3. When I log out browser, browser logs out from web services and account and password are no longer saved and my colleague can't log in using my account. 4. If my colleague log in browser using his own account, browser apply his settings and log in web services using his account.

At first, I thought that I can do this using Firefox account, but it seem different from what I imagined.

If this is possible, would you tell me how to do?

It makes me do a click to get rid of it. How can I disable that?

Besides the extra click, the tiny area that you're given to edit is not useful.

I keep my bookmarks open in another window, using this shortcut:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -chrome chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul

If I want to edit, I go there, which is better, because the line is longer, which makes it easy to edit.
