Is there a way to increase the height of the Tab bar so you can drag the window around without opening tabs or dragging a tab into a new window?

The FF tab bar is so small that it's impossible to grab the window and move it, like to look at something hidden underneath it or make room for another window or app or whatever. The only places I can see to grab the window without accidentally opening tabs or dragging the tab off the tab bar into a new window are at each far end of the tab bar. So you have to decide which way you want to move the window and choose the appropriate end of the tab bar. Compared to Chrome, the FF tab bar is really skinny - even though the difference is only about 1/16 or 1/8 inch, that small difference is enough in Chrome to grab the window where you want and drag it without opening the tab right below where you're grabbing. I hope this description makes sense - hard to put it into words.

I clicked on my Win 7 Mozilla shortcut. A message came up that an upgrade was being installed and the browser would start in a moment. Upon completion a tab was open on Mozilla.org stating all my bookmarks were gone but could be retrieved from my Mozilla account after logging in. 1. Prior to now, I didn't have an account until I created one to ask for help. 2. It was actually a Downgrade for whatever reason. I was running version 73 or higher and now the version with no bookmarks is ver 63ESR.

There is no Old Data folder on my desktop and if I try Restore bookmarks it asks if I want to restore 11 bookmarks. I had well over 100 bookmarks before this disaster.

I recently upgraded my old MacBookPro with new hardware (2TSSD, 16GB memory, etc.). Before I upgraded, I backed up my hard drive using Mac's TimeMachine. And then, after loading Catalina in the upgraded MacBook, I "restored" my "new" computer with the Time Machine Backup. I loaded&opened Firefox and clicked on the 64bit version, but I can't find any bookmarks from my old hard drive. Not sure where to look either on my Time machine backup, or on the "new" drive. ( I find most the articles about backup, library folders, etc. to be very confusing.)

I'd appreciate whatever help you can give in restoring my bookmarks. My current bookmarks are critical, and I use my older ones for reference all the time. Thanks

I find Pocket quite creepy. Despite your attempts to reassure users about the privacy of the system, the relevance of the suggested articles with respect to my recent searches does make me feel like I'm being followed. That's not the experience I expect from a browser like Firefox.

So I unticked the "Recommended by Pocket" in the Preferences. But it's not clear to me what that does exactly. Q1. Does it just hide the suggestions or does it disabled the Pocket system entirely? Would it be possible to make the purpose of that tickbox clearer for the users?

Q2. If it does disable it, why can I still see "extensions.pocket.enabled true" under about:config? Why can't that be turned to false from the Preferences?

Q3. That config key indicates that it is a browser extension. If indeed it is, why isn't it listed under "about:addons"? Why can't Pocket be disabled or removed like any other extension?

The latest is I can't search from the search bar with a new tab. This is after doing a migration. I erased Firefox and reinstalled the app and all of my data was still there. I reopened the session as if I had just closed a session and I was logged into gmail. So clearly Mozilla's instructions on deleting the app on MAC doesn't work. Recycle bin. How do you literally delete the app?

Hoping deletion will solve the issue of not being able to hit enter in the search bar to perform a google search, or click the arrow. Nothing works.

Further, I'm logged into this browser, yet when the tabs disappear I can't reaccess them. What's the point of logging into a browser if it doesn't remember the tabs?

Last night firefox crashed but I just shut down my computer. Now today for the entire day firefox keeps crashing just after just a few minutes, regardless of what I am doing (youtube video, staring at google homepage, in firefox settings).

I read articles suggesting solutions. These are the things I have done to try and fix the problem but they didn't work:

1) I restarted my computer (shut down last night). 2) Performed the sfc scannow function, but found no corruption. 3) Did a Norton quickscan, then a Norton full scan (stopped after 700,000 files), no viruses. 4) Checked my display drivers, both were up to date (Intel and AMD). 5) Checked my network adapters, both were up to date (Intel, Realtek). 6) No Windows updates. 7) Firefox is up to date. 8) Tried safe mode, still crashed. 9) Refreshed firefox, still crashed.

I attached a list of my crash reports, I submitted them just now (didn't realize they didn't submit). I screenshotted it because I thought firefox would crash before I could copy them all. If needed, I can paste them one by one.

I downloaded Chrome, which I'm using right now and it isn't crashing like firefox. However, when I had firefox open at the same time, firefox crashed and caused Chrome to crash as well..

Any help is appreciated. I prefer to continue using firefox because I'm used to it and it has all my saved passwords. I'm scared of reinstalling firefox and losing my saved passwords.

Have tried a ton of add-ins to be able to save a web page with searchable text as a searchable PDF, complete with the images displayed on the page, and the links shown. So far I have not found a single add-in that creates searchable text from all the (searchable) text that is displayed on the web page, and all the images, and all the links. Some give a pdf output that includes all the text but not all of it is selectable or searchable. Some do give searchable text but do not display the images. I have even tried the option of using several different print to pdf virtual drivers, and all of them behave similarly, with one issue or the other.

This is a basic requirement, and it needs to work. So far, the only thing that works is a chrome=based brpwser using the native save to pdf function. (The pdf print drivers do not work with the chrome browser either - they produce the same problems as using Firefox.) I am flagging this so some kind person on the forum can step up to the mark - for finding or creating something that works. (FF latest). The solution needs to work without any third party servers - just the good ol' browser !

Thanks
