Hi! I'm using Firefox on my Mac. Last update. My problem is simple: when I close Firefox, it doesn't remember the last size of the window. So, for example, I normally use it on the full dimension of the screen (but not in full size: I'll post a picture to explain, because I'm not good with words hahah). Instead, when I relaunch it, it opens like in small size (I'll post a picture of that, too). Is there something that I can do? Thx.

The Dashlane website indicates that Dashlane Password Manager is compatible with Firefox Browser but I am unable to find it in the extension list. Without Dashlane Firefox is useless to me since I have used it for years in Chrome and do not wish to attempt to import that information into another extension. Anyone know why it is missing?

I have several add-ons installed and I want to be able to start them up (of course). In the toolbar I added the add-ons icon, but when i click that it only gives me a list of installed add-ons. For instance it says that Enpass add-on is installed, but I can't see the add-on itself in teh toolbar and therefore can't start it up. I have tried everything i can think of, but nothing works. Please help!

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

Firefox says that it is being managed by an organization, but this is my own computer, and when I click to see active policies there is nothing there.

I've asked on Reddit but I haven't found a fix for this yet so I'm asking here. In the settings for Firefox it says that my browser is being managed by your organization. But it has no mention of any settings being restricted, and when I clicked the notification to check the policy the page was entirely empty. I also checked the Firefox program folder and there wasn't any sign of an Autoconfic file that I could notice. One user mentioned on Reddit that this issue is often caused by antivirus companies forcefully inserting their own SSL certs to intercept your encrypted traffic, he then suggested turning off "web scanning" but my antivirus (which I only use Malwarebytes and Windows Defender) already had them disabled. After doing some research on my own I found out that the antivirus Avast used to cause this issue, and I had uninstalled Avast a while back, so I figured that the reason that the policy wasn't there was because Avast was uninstalled, but, I never saw this notification before today. So if anybody can help me pinpoint what this is and how remove it would be much appreciated. But all I really want to know if is this is something that I should be worried about or is it simply a bug. Also one other question is why the top sites and search bar is really close to the address bar after the latest update. Is this just a design change? Or is this something I need to be concerned about? Because I didn't notice this on Firefox on my laptop. Thanks in advance.

I used to get my PDF bank statements with no problem. Recently I go into the bank's site, ask for the statement, and instead of seeing the actual statement I see a screen like the one in the attached image. I called the bank and they said it was an issue with the new version of Firefox, and I was able to access the statements using the Edge browser. How can I fix this in Firefox? I use Win 10 64 bit.

The search bar that used to be in the center of the page has suddenly moved to the top of the page in all new tabs: https://i.imgur.com/2f5VZjv.png

This started around noon today, and was not preceded by any updates or changes to Firefox or any of my addons, so far that I'm aware of.

How do I return the search bar to the center of the page?

On Windows, Firefox adds a pre-set command line to the Windows registry under

   HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\shell\open\command
   HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL\shell\open\command 

If you change the -url in the command line to -private-window -- from

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "%1"

to

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -private-window "%1"

-- then all external links launch in a private window.


jscher2000 in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1119073

This no longer works in FF 69. As soon as I modify "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL-F66A7FFE1BF331E2\shell\open\command", FF is detecting it and changes its status to "NOT your default browser".

I'd appreciate your help.

Hi,

I downloaded JDownloader yesterday. It forcefully installed some adware which became the default search engine, can't recall its name and Avast Antivirus. There was no option to uncheck them while installing. Since I didn't like JD at all so I uninstalled them all using Revo Uninstaller. Now while I searched something in the url bar few times that adware's page searched my keywords. I opened my settings and I got this message Your browser is being managed by your organization. PFA. This is my personal laptop connected to my personal wifi. Can I delete everything related to this junk without reinstalling FF? http://www.upl.co/uploads/14291556FF1580471775.jpg http://www.upl.co/uploads/161919FF-11580471781.jpg

I have been using Firefox ESR 52.9.0 (32bit) on my Windows XP computer for some time now and a while back there was a problem with security certificates. They issued a special patch for the ESR version so we could continue to use Firefox. It would appear that this problem has somehow reappeared. Can we please get a patch once again to clear up this issue.

Thanks
