Hi

to ALL Firefox admins and programmers.....

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

Signed a VERY pissed off user!

I've managed multiple profiles, and used the profile manager for years.

Usually, when I want to update/replace a session from one profile to another, these are the files I transfer.

When I launch the profile, it should open to the same tab as in the previous profile, and the tab count should be the same. That is, until today.

No matter what I try with the new profile, the same old session keeps coming up.

Before the update, my bookmarks toolbox was permanently open on the left side of the screen. That was a perfect setup for me, as I use a lot of bookmarklets for time saving on sites I'm on frequently. Since the update, all I have at the top of the screen is Import bookmarks and Most Visited (top left) and Other Bookmarks (top right). I can open Other Bookmarks, and my bookmarklets are there, but clicking one closes the Other Bookmarks folder each and every time. This renders them useless for my purpose. Is there a way to reopen, and KEEP open, my toolbox? I've tried clicking the Keep Open option and selecting done, but that doesn't do what I'm wanting it to do.

I've reinstalled my PC. First thing first I downloaded FF and installed it. Login to Firefox Sync. And it's empty. No history, no tabs, no passwords, everything is gone. I've check that I logged into correct account. And yes I can track many previous emails from this account. Why did Sync lost all data? Is there a history that I can use to restore my lost data? Thanks!

I recently updated Mozilla to v 80.0 (64 bit) I have Mozilla set so that it does not search from the address bar, and I use the optional search bar.

When I create a new tab the default page contains a google search box, as per the attached screen shot. But if I type in that search box, the search term appears in the address bar, and then Mozilla tells me the address doesn't look right.

Why is the search term automatically entered in the address bar? Since I have the seaparate search bar my search term should appear there.

BTW I hate searching from the address bar. If I want to search I type it in the search box, or in the search box in new tab. Separating the search and address bars is one of my favorite features of Mozilla vs the other browsers.

After FF89 every time I type something to the Web Search field on Firefox Home, the text is being typed in address bar instead of the web search field. This is greatly frustrating, because it gives suggestions as urls from browsing history instead of strings typed previously in the web search field.

Some websites have this text box under their articles to write a comment and post it on Facebook (see the screenshot). But for that to happen, first you must login to your Facebook account. The problem is that when I click the button "login to post", nothing happens - as if I didn't click it at all. I suspect the reason for that are the integrated anti-tracking options in Firefox 89. So the question is: how do I get this plugin to work in Firefox 89?

P.S. Until a month ago I was temporarily using Chromium as default browser and there the FB plugin had no issues. Chromium has no anti-tracking options which is why I think this function in Firefox is the reason for the FB plugin not to work.

This new 'update' has just caused me to lose all my tabs and bookmarks. The new version is c**p and it is awful. I went to the page to install the previous version I liked and worked perfectly and when I installed I now have none of my tabs and bookmarks. My pc is nearly unusable and I am now out of business until I can get them back if I can. It will be months to try to get back to where I was and will never get all of what I had. Is there any way to fix this? I need help immediately.
