Not able to set "ask" on google talk plug-in when going to google hangouts. The webpage says to click "allow" at top of browser, but there is no popup asking to allow. Need this to fix, I won't leave google talk active all the time.... Pain in ass to reset every time I need to make a phone call. Not sure if browser, or if google messing around.

I have lost the Firefox bar at the top of my email screen underneath the Yahoo bar, so it looks like an ad should be there but isn't (thank goodness).

I have this big space between my Yahoo search bar and my email list. It looks like an ad should be there. I can't see the Firefox bar that let's you block or unblock things. Twice it has popped up and I could click on the Close Ad button, but normally I can't see that to click on it. This just started this weekend. It looks like there was a Firefox update of some kind then. How do I get this gone??

Why is XUL being deprecated if its Firefox's main asset, power-source and difference from other browsers?

Taking https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/ as a representative sample of Firefox's community of users we can see 100% of negative reaction to the decision of deprecating XUL. So: is Mozilla reverting that decision? If not, why the hell not?

Also, none of those comments was answered by Mozilla, which is also a bit disrespectful, I think. Am I wrong here? Feedback seems to work one way only and not for the users' sake... :(

Can't get rid of double unupdated Shockwave Flash after reinstalling FIrefox

I want to remove this in my add-ons: "Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable and should be updated. Update Now." "Shockwave Flash 15.0.r0" When I click update, FIrefox has blocked it: "Flash Player Plugin 14.0 to 15.0.0.242 (click-to-play) has been blocked for your protection." But I want to remove it completely - I have a 2. Shockwave Flash add-on that is an updated version.

I removed Firefox from my PC, restarted, reinstalled Firefox, but STILL, there is the SAME VULNERABLE SHOCKWAVE FLASH in the add-ons - how can this be??

Why is my old add-ons and preferences here after I have removed and reinstalled Firefox?? Why does FIrefox keep my info? How do I remove this old add-on? Or do I have to start using another browser in stead of Firefox?

In updating from FF55 to 57, I've seemed to have lost my ReadItLater bookmarks. Pocket asks for a login, which I've never had since ReadItLater stored everything offline, altough I've got a username and password saved in my password manager for "chrome://readitlater" and in my Appdata/Roaming profile I've got a readItLater.sqlite, which I assume is my two-thousand-some bookmarks, but I see no way in which I can import this to the new Pocket system, nor do I see a way to migrate.

Send help, I'm lost and afraid.

I am unable to dismiss the websites in the 'Top Sites' section, which doesn't look that nice, and I miss the Firefox homepage we had previously, with the search bar and the big Firefox logo, it would be nice if we could get that bag, please. And I prefer the way you can access your history as a websites and easily delete it, available in chrome either by searching chrome://history or using CTRL + H and I also preferred the idea of settings as a web page too, by typing chrome://settings :-(
