I noticed one day that when I opened firefox it would restart itself each time before letting me do anything. I couldn't figure out why, but I happened to run my mouse over an invisible add on. It was unlabeled as well so I have no idea what is was. I deleted it and reported it but after closing firefox it did the same thing upon repopening it. Now the address bar is red and I don't understand why, how do I make it go back to normal. Also I have refreshed firefox a couple times but after each refresh it is the same thing.

If you don't touch the autoplay permissions for a site, Firefox seems to be attempting to use some heuristics to decide whether autoplay, such as calling ".play()" on an Audio object in javascript, should be allowed. What are these heuristics, and where are they authoritatively documented? [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/d.../Autoplay_guide#autoplay_availability|MDN] has some information but nothing Firefox-specific.

I had an issue where when I tried to open firefox I received an error that said ""A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time". After looking at some other support articles I came across this article that appeared to fix the issue after entering a command in terminal https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1254772, and I guess I deleted the wrong version because after being able to reopen my browser I had none of my saved bookmarks, extensions, history, or any other account info.

Is there any way I can recover my lost browser info or am I just completely SOL?

From last night, when I open Firefox, a blank white screen keeps appearing. Other browsers work fine but whenever I open Firefox this happens. I'm currently running Firefox on safe mode. Any solution other than uninstalling Firefox? The screen is fully white, no close button, nothing. Just plain white.

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Hello, I would like to use the search function in the tab again. How can I adjust this? At the moment it is so that when you enter it it appears right above in the link line (see picture). I would like it to be in the search below, directly in the tab. Before version 88 this was possible. Why was it removed?

hallo, ich möchte wieder im Tab die Suchfunktion nutzen. Wie kann ich dies einstellen? Zur Zeit ist es so, daß bei einer Eingabe es gleich oben in der Linkzeile erscheint (siehe Bild) Dabei möchte ich es unten in der Suche, direkt im Tab haben. Vor Version 88 war das möglich. Warum wurde es entfernt?

I can't open or create facebook accounts with any browser. Why? Even as soon as creating a new facebook account and nothing is posted, I am not obey their community rules. I do nothing strange and peculiar things. For example, First Name: Myo Last Name:Tun DOB:28/12/1978

Nothing is out of facebook community standard. But I can't use facebook with any browser. Why?

With respect, Myo Min Tun, Myanmar.

I am facing a strange issue where the Browser doesn't load the website for a minute and shows server error. However, this behavior is not specific to any website and the server error shows randomly. Sometimes the browser loads the website normally while other times it shows server error. Please check this screencast: https://jmp.sh/jEu4D9k to understand better. So, I initially tried to open calendly.com and it didn't load despite my multiple reload attempts. However, when I tried to reload it after a minute then it came to life.

I have been facing this issue for many months and I tried almost every solution I found on Mozilla community pages like Resetting Mozilla, Setting No Proxy, Turning Off IPv6, DNS Prefetching Changes, Turning On/Off hardware acceleration, Uninstalled Mozilla and Installed a fresh copy, Changed to Mozilla Developer Edition, etc. but no luck. Please note that the other browsers are working fine and don't have any issues.

Got an update to89.0 four days ago, that totally screwed up my userChrome.css file -- which I now fixed (Again, thank you to all that help with posting this updated file to get tabs on the bottom for us non-techies) but I am now getting notices to update to 90.0 Beta 5. This is new, as far as I know, and I certainly don't want to try Beta versions, if anything I'd like less updates to avoid the userChrome incidents ... Is there a way to get out of this Beta update cycle, and back to whatever "normal" update requests are? Thanks!

If I am on Youtube and click the logo icon in the top left, or the Twitter back button, or click on a recommended video, my entire computer freezes for 8-15 seconds. I can't close apps, speak on communication apps like Discord, nor can I even close the tab. I've tried troubleshoot mode, verifying browser file integrity, turning hardware acceleration off, and using older versions of Firefox and the issue seems to persist no matter what I do, I happen to really like this browser and I really want to try and find a solution for these issues. I am always running the latest version of Firefox (90b5) and use windows 8.1. When recording some of my performance data it seems the issue uses all the power my CPU (i-5 6600k) is able to offer. I don't know how to fix this and would really appreciate any help, thank you in advance.
