I can look at the add-on manager [Control-Shift-A] and SEE all of my add-ons, BUT the list of addon-okons is gone, and NONE of the web pages I go to show any of the add-on "buttons" [such as "Download"]

HOW do I get these back?

I am highly distractable by screen movements of any kind, and prefer that nothing on my screen moves unless I ask it to--no autoplay or running ribbons of text or even slideshows with pictures slipping past each other unless I specifically click to make something move. But none of the adjustments I've found in about:config have stopped the snowflakes that drift down across the screen on

during December. I'd like to stop them in my viewing but not be the killjoy that demands they be taken down for everyone, because lots of people actually like them.

Any suggestions on what setting to tweak for this?

Hello. Firefox not allows me to add search engine to search bar only for some sites. For example: I can add search on YouTube, and it's show me green "+" on search bar. But I need to add this site: allegro.pl and the "+" button is unavailable. I remember I added it to search few versions ago (probably it was FF 78 ESR), but I don't remember how I do it. And I accidentally delete it from search engines. Could anyone help me with add it again? Regards.

My current pdf behaviour is set to always open in firefox.

When clicking a link to a pdf, firefox will open it in browser (desired behavior) but when I click a pdf download link (even the one in the default firefox pdf viewer) it gives me a prompt asking if I want to save or download. In other cases like downloading a pdf from google drive, it will give me a prompt asking if I want to save open or open with firefox. My desired behavior for a download link is to just always download.

Since they are prompting me even though I've set it to open in firefox, the browser must be able to see a difference in the links but if I select download and select "do this automatically from now on" then it overrides my default behavior for normal pdf links and everything auto-downloads. Is there a way to set what happens in these cases? The extra prompt is just annoying and the last annoyance after switching from chrome recently

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

I use a Firefox account on two different machines- one is a Mac and the other is a Windows machine. I have some programs installed on the Windows machine that installed an extension for Firefox. Those programs are not Mac compatible but because of the same account, those extensions were copied to the Firefox installation on Mac. I was wondering if there is a way to isolate the extensions to just the windows installation? Thanks!

I'm trying to make a bunch of donations online. I have a different credit card to do this. Some sites don't list it.

Also this credit card is expiring so I have a new expiry date and CCV, but other sites just give me an error message, no way to update.

Can you give me a link to where I can change my autofill info?

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

When I select a tab I would like to see and hear only that tab. One single mouse click should select a tab, unmute that tab and mute all the other tabs, all at the same time.

Selecting a tab would be equivalent to selecting a channel on a tv.

Then when (with a single click) I select a different tab, it would be equivalent to selecting a different tv channel
