HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

With the most recent update I can no longer enable the dropdown menu with my most visited websites. With previous versions setting browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to false solved this problem. But it doesn't seem to be working now. Is there anything else I can try?

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

In v76, I was able to stop the URL bar from enlarging by setting browser.urlbar.update1 to false in about:config. In v77, this enlarging URL bar behavior seems permanent. I find this behavior annoying and unnecessary for me. Actually, I think this is just plain dumb. The text does not enlarge, just the URL box. Is there a way that I may be able to disable this behavior, thank you.

After Firefox updated today, it no longer brings up my homepage when I launch the browser. Instead, it's just a blank page (not even a default page). Clicking on the homepage takes me to the correct address.

>Properties show "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" with no extension.

>I've tried resetting homepage defaults in the options, to no change.

Is there anyway I can get my homepage to show up when I launch the browser?

Hello,

I have a question about language options in Firefox. I moved to the Netherlands some time ago but I don't speak Dutch (yet). Most menu items are in Dutch right now, making it really hard to understand.

When I first installed Firefox I removed Dutch from the languages list and the problem was solved, after some time when I updated my browser Dutch got installed again and I can't remove it anymore, remove button is disabled.

English is the fist language selected in the languages list. Is there a way to remove Dutch from Firefox?

After updating to Firefox 77.0, it no longer store my cookies between sessions.

I have made sure the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is UN-clicked.

I tried deleting the cookies.sqlite file and replace it with an archived cookie.txt file, but Firefox 77.0 no longer converts cookies.txt to cookies.sqlite.

I then tried backing up the cookies.sqlite file after a Firefox session spent signing into various accounts, but it too seems to get cleared out.

What the heck ?
