As said in the title. I am an everyday user, I download files often. Suddenly, the download window's OK button stopped working, staying grey. Everything else with the browser seems to work. Other browsers work fine. I tried restarting the computer and even reinstalling Firefox. Cannot download or open files anymore, which makes this browser unusable until the problem is solved.

Hi! Within the past month or so, Firefox login/password autosave has stopped working correctly. I want it to autosave most passwords, and it had been doing that fine. Then I noticed saved passwords were being rejected by sites, and when I clicked on 'view' to see what the saved password was that had been autofilled, it wouldn't be right. It would be a different login and password for a previous site. For instance, firefox was trying to autofill my college login with my personal email and a different password, not my .edu email. I haven't changed any behavior or gone into settings or done anything that seems likely to trigger this issue. Also can't find anything about it in search. Any ideas?

Almost every time I open FF I have to sign in and sync, and start my browsing from scratch. My previous session does not open: I have tried several times to set my preferences to restore previous session. Sometimes the session is there but after opening and closing the browser a few times the session is lost.

Why is Adobe PDF reader no longer usable or available with Firefox?

I want to vote by mail but the Elections Canada PDF has this message on top: "This PDF document contains forms. The filling of form fields is not supported." Googled this extensively but there is no Adobe PDF reader listed in Firefox "options" or "add-ons". Only Firefox default PDF reader is available. Adobe is not listed under Open with different viewer - Other..., either. The default Firefox reader won't allow me to fill in the form and print it. Needless to say, I'm very upset I won't be able to vote. I am a wheelchair user with very serious medical problems and cannot leave my home to go to a voting station. This must be a new thing FF is doing because I filled out and printed this form to vote in our election four years ago. What possible reason does Mozilla have for not allowing someone to fill out and/or print a form?

How can I completely remove the bar above the URL bar? I don't need to see horizontal tabs or the Close/Minimize/Restore buttons.

I can close/minimize/restore by right-clicking the Firefox box on my Linux Mint's bottom panel.


My userChrome.css looks like this:

/* Hide horizontal tabs at the top of the window */
#tabbrowser-tabs {
  visibility: collapse !important;
}

#titlebar {
  visibility: collapse;
}


#tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: hidden !important; }
tab { display: none !important; }

#sidebar-header {
  visibility: collapse !important;
}

I am trying to change the text color and background color of the menus that drop-down from the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox. I have tried the user-Chrome.css suggestion but it doesn't work. I can't include a screenshot as the menus disappear as soon as I try. Themes don't seem to change that part of the display. Any help appreciated. Thanks

buenas tardes.

Os escribo porque firefox se me cierra inesperadamente. He probado a desinstalarlo y reinstalarlo, he revisado que tenga todas las actualizaciones y todo lo que mencionais en vuestra pàgina. El uso de memoria de firefox con 8-10 pestañas abiertas es de 1.149mb de ram lo que creo qu es excesivo.

Como puedo hacer para evitar que se me cierre firefox solo.

Muchas gracias

Using Firefox 69.0.1 on Linux Mint. I created a new profile (using `firefox -P` in terminal). But this new profile doesn't have a folder called "chrome", which my other profile folder (the one i've been using since I got this laptop a year ago) does. The reason I want to access the chrome folder is because I want to tweak UserChrome.css.

firefox 69.0.1 on a HP8000e SFF3 Ghz, Ice dragon works normally when I switch from a 'dead' fiirefox, but does not allow adblock plus. When I return to firefox, it usually works normally. Not sure if it's me or firefox. Have tried refreshing and lost themes and settings. It didn't seem to work for long. Thank you for any assistance. Will try with extensions disabled next time it occurs.
