While in the Firefox browser I can no longer display the windows 10 toolbar by moving the cursor to the bottom of the page. This has always worked but started failing recently. Not sure if it was a Firefox update that changed things or something else. Moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen on all windows applications correctly pops up the taskbar. This only happens with the Firefox main screen and any web page linked to with Firefox. The Windows IE works fine.

The password shows on line at log in as a row of black dots As normal you would think but the dots take up the whol;e of the box and I am unable to delete them either by backspacing or highlighting and pressing delete , it returns to the dots every time, Amazon have tried to help but say it is a problem with my computer using firefox. I have tried to find a phone number to talk to someone as this is an unusual problem but no joy. It would be great if someone can HELP .... I am a very basic user of my computer and do not understand many of the references or abreviations Thank you Barry

Firefox does not let me always access one of my bank accounts (the bank comes back with a 404 error) but using Chrome or Edge I can sign in. This happened about 6 months ago with another bank account, but then the problem mysteriously went away. Are there some settings I need to adjust?

In the FF96 menu (upper right of window) there once was a "Manage Bookmarks" with pull down options. Can someone steer me to a solution to restore my old bookmarks??

Recently booted off a new drive, when I originally signed in I had made a different firefox account since I was having verification issues. When I had that settled, I logged back into my old account which merged the two. It kept all of my old passwords and bookmarks I've made over the years, but it didn't keep my history. I've carefully sculpted my history for ages and I would really like to reaquire it somehow, let me know what's possible! Thanks.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

Firefox 96.01 seems to be blocking access to popmoney through my credit union's website. The error message states that I must allow third-party cookies, but Firefox 96 doesn't have an option to specifically enable/disable third-party cookies. I can do this easily on Microsoft Edge, so I have to fall back on Edge in order to use popmoney.

Copy of error message:

"We're sorry for this error. In order to use this service, your internet browser must accept third-party cookies. Please refer to your browser's online help for enabling cookies in your system. Please try again after you enable the cookies."

I used to have 'Word Hippo' (an on-line thesaurus which I use daily) in my bookmarks, but it has gone and I can't access it on Firefox to re-install it. It is accessible on Chrome but not on Firefox which seem strange, and understandably it won't transfer from there into Firefox Bookmarks.

I disabled the popup "Firefox is playing me ..." by entering about:config in the URL bar and set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled = false. This worked okay.

HOWEVER, the volume popup meter still often appear when I watch videos on youtube. It is stuck on the screen and not only is it annoying and won't go away unless I restart. Killing the browser alone does not get rid of it.

When I try to do multitasking ... whatever icon/button functions I click on ... they refuse to cooperate.
