Hi, One day I accidentally hit a button to get Facebook notifications via Android browser. I've been looking and couldn't find such an option as it is in the desktop app and it gets really annoying when I get two notifications about one thing. O tried reinstalling Firefox, also clearing cache. Didn't help. Any ideas?

I've always love the fact that I could move all the tool bars and addy bar to the bottom of the window. First this it was a menu item, no it's broken. Then an addon, now it's broken. Then it was the .css file, now it's broken with 66. How do I go about moving everything back to the bottom of the window? Why can't Mozilla relize that a lot of their users love the customizing of where the tools and how the layout is done and stop breaking it??? Why can't we have the old drag and drop customizing back?

Previously Firefox allowed for Autoplay to be disabled Globally, that is to say one setting in about:config disabled the functionality on all websites - no issues!

Now I have to apply the setting on a local basis, that is to say that I must first visit the website and be infuriated by an autoplay monstrosity before I am able to disable its functionality - whilst also wasting data as I am using a metered connection to access the web via desktop and laptop (rural location).

As someone who has previously donated to the cause, and has both the T-Shirt and Certificate to prove it, I am most disappointed by this change which seems to favour the individual websites more than the end consumer - without whom Firefox would not be what it is today!

Needless to say, I am most disappointed by this sudden and somewhat confusing change. I hope this shall be remedied in an upcoming release.

Yours sincerely,

Elliot J Knightall.

I have text substitutions configured on my Macbook (MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 - Preferences - Keyboard - Text).

The substitutions work in other apps/browsers, but not in Firefox (66.0.2).

I'd be grateful for any advice - is this a security setting?

Thanks in advance.

I don't want to lose all of the tabs that I have opened in my current session. Saving them individually would be very time consuming. Can multiple tabs be saved as a group so that they could be retrieved later?

It didn't restore my previous session, all my defaults were gone, all my bookmarks were gone. I have no idea how to restore any of this any why this happened. Did a bad update get pushed or something?

AOL Mail has the facility to "You have Email" when my account is opened, but it no longer works in Firefox! it is fine if I use Chrome or IE11 to open my account, but not using firefox - so the problem MUST be with Firefox. It used to work but stopped around April 9 or 10 2019!

Once again, without any warning, Firefox demanded I power-cycle itself because it, *without any permission*, installed an update "in the background". Firefox refuses to carry out any further action until I comply with its demands.

Let me be very clear: forced auto-updates are **100% EVIL**. I own, and am ultimately responsible for, this computer. Me. Not you. Me.

Download the update, fine. Notify me about it, present to me what the changes are coming, sure.

But under absolutely NO CIRCUMSTANCES is Firefox, or any other program for that matter, to modify itself or any other element of this computer without my positive consent.

Thanks a bunch!

Firefox is up to date. Windows 10 is up to date. Netflix video plays in all other browsers, IE 111, MS Edge, Chrome. It stopped playing in FF same time it stopped for the rest of the world about a year ago. I am tired of switching to another browser every time I go to Netflix. I have read other answers and they are all snippily saying that there is nothing wrong with FF but with settings in Windows 10. This doesn't fly because since Netflix video plays in ALL OTHER BROWSERS, this is a problem with FF not Windows 10. If FF would be so kind as to STOP being the bully in town ande conform to the same settings all other browsers use for playing Netflix video, this would be greatly appreciated. Meantime, instead of changing my Windows 10 settings to make FF happy over ALL OTHER BROWSERS, I will instead simply stop using , and convert solely to Chrome., If, in future, any of you scratch your heads and wonder why everyone fell away from FF remember these events. Goodbye.

Multiple addons suddenly "could not be verified"?

Earlier tonight, with no warning or apparent cause, the vast majority of my browser extensions suddenly stopped working with a "could not be verified for use in Firefox" error message. These include some popular ones, such as Adblock Plus, which I installed from addons.mozilla.org and I'm pretty sure are properly signed.

I'm on FF 66.0.3 and have been since April 10th, and all of them had been working fine up until now. I wasn't installing or updating anything at the time when they stopped working. I typically use a VPN service to connect to the internet, but the problem persists even after I turned it off, so I don't think that caused it. I can't think of anything else that might be the cause.

Any info or ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Using Firefox 66.0.3 I want to disable the blocking of "redirects". I am sick of having to keep clicking the "Allow" button. I want to turn the redirecting off.

On the internet it tells me to check Tools-->Options-->Advanced In Firefox 66.0.3 there is not an "Advanced". The solutions on the internet are old.

How do I turn this off? I guess I want to turn "Warn Me When Websites Try to Redirect or Reload the Page" OFF.

Please tell me (and everyone else) how to do this.

Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.
