I have not added nor removed any extensions or add-ons. I simply opened firefox today and the window took up my whole screen as usual, but the actual browser, menu bar, etc only took up the top left corner of that window. The menu bar and all buttons on the browser work, but they act as if they are still in their original place, not where they are on the screen. To explain, it's like if you went to click the close window box on what you see, you'd be about 1/3 across the top of your screen from the left, but it's not there. You then go to hover over where it normally would be, on the top right corner, and then the close window box turns red to close. So it still thinks it's full size, but it's not. I can restart in safe mode and then it works, but as soon as you close and reopen, it goes back to mini Firefox. Attached is the image of what I see. Firefox opens and takes up the whole screen (where you see the small window and then the rest is white background).

At the moment I have 4 pages open in tabs.

But each of them except the current page have lost their content and if I switch back each tab has to reload the page.

This just started happening after the lastest update. 67.0

For example I am on support community page if I tab back to Youtube which was open, it is now blank, has the tab description but reloads the page.

It's the same for all the tabs.

Any ideas. It's very annoying and thinking perhaps time to switch to chrome.

Hello,

I am running Firefox 67.0.4. No video streaming services work with the browser. Each one gives me some sort of error message:

Netflix - Unexpected Error, F7111 HBO - Can't play video, please try again later Amazon Prime - Unsupported Browser

This has been occurring for almost two years now, during which time I have been using Chrome (yuck) to stream video.

I have a VPN installed on my computer (for work) but I am not connected to it, and these problems have been occurring since before I installed the VPN.

I am running the latest version of Flash and Widevine. I have Netflix set to play DRM content in my preferences (I have tried unchecking and checking that box and restarting Firefox). I am running uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, and HTTPS Everywhere, but disabling any or all of the add-ons does not solve the issue.

I am going to try refreshing the program but am open to any suggestions before I do so.

I know this has probably been asked before, but none of the solutions really work for me. Playing Youtube or other video on sites like Vimeo result in choppy playback. I have ruled out hardware problems, because playing local video works fine. This issue also occurs on Chrome, and turning on or off hardware acceleration does nothing.

Thanks for any help in advance.

How can I PERMANENTLY (not hide) the menu bar in Firefox? (or alternatively remove the "alt" shortcut to toggle it)

Made the shift to firefox recently, and everything is fine so far - got my bookmarks, my plugins, history all good. I cannot stand however that popup menu bar on firefox whenever i press ALT. Moving the entire toolbar with it is distracting and annoying - the "ez fix" is to always show it (this disables the ALT functionality). This however means that I know have to have a large menubar that I never use and which means that the top of my browser is not dedicated to tabs (requiring more accuracy for clicking them using the mouse rather than ctrl+tab). I typically have quite few tabs but like to quickly move my cursor to the top of my screen and then clicking the tab i desire. This is blocked by the menubar, so ANY help in removing it would be absolutely fantastic. (I have yet to found any plugins or articles on this, that were not from 4+ years ago and non-functional)

Having long been puzzled by what Firefox considers to be my location, I have tried to find out how to set or change it. I followed all leads that seemed promising. the most direct lead was through the Menu (three bars in my PC-based Firefox). It does not contain the Settings option, nor any kind of 'More' option. I even used the about:config lead simply to find it is enabled. All I know is that Firefox holds a Location other than what I would want to to. But I simply cannot find a way to identify where its held; so I can change it.

Given how straight forward this need is I am puzzled on how hard it is to find out how to change it. Can someone help, other than by repeating the common instructions for using the Menu? I attach my list in case it helps.

I'm trying to find a way to add entries to the list in the attached screencap. What I want is to always save certain filetypes, like .rs, .qdp, and any others I might want, without having to manually click 'save' each time. No matter where I download these from, the option to 'do this automatically' is always greyed out, and I haven't found a workaround for that, so I'm hoping this is possible to do as I download 10-20 files of these types on any given day.

In case the image doesn't load, I'll post an imgur link: https://i.imgur.com/KiPhV73.png

I am having an issue where no hyperlinks will open in firefox. Thunderbird will show the error below, but no other programs such as discord or open office will show any error or response when clicking on a hyperlink. I was looking through the default programs and settings and the advanced areas in those menus and found the pair of protocol below, which I changed and then changed back with no result.

I have just downloaded chrome and tried to open the links into it, with the same results as firefox.
