Hi Just recently my Firefox Browser has decided to Bookmark a page with just "one click" on "bookmark this page. I need to restore the old behaviour, where I could edit what the bookmark said & in what sub-folder to place it. I do not like the new behaviour & I did not choose it. Please how can I get the original & better behaviour restored??? Thanks

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

Hi. If I am browsing images on bing or google and scroll down the page, I click on an image then the page jumps back to the top. I then have to scroll down and find the image again. Does this regularly, say every 6 images I click on. I've refreshed firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled it and finally used Geek uninstall to clear the registry before I install it again with no success.

I'm using windows 10 and use Malwarebytes to clean up anything I may have picked up. Avast antivirus running. I have a suspicion it might be a windows problem as it's fairly recent, maybe a month or a bit longer. I've searched for answers but nothing really matches it. Any ideas? Apologies if I've missed the obvious, could well be a senior moment! Thank you.

Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

There is a new problem with the latest firefox version. The issue I am having at least is there is a fairly big black box that keeps on popping up on a web page while I am browsing different web sites. It just pops up then disappears. It does not cover the whole browser the black box. It happens often. I never get this issue when using Microsoft Edge. It's something wrong with firefox new update and it has turned to crap. If anyone that works for firefox please for the love of everyone, FIX THE GLITCH.

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! I am opening this help, because for some months, that I have been using Firefox on Kubunto, it is impossible to log into Google. YouTube is the way I left it in Print. And it has a plogin that doesn't update for anything. Which is the Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.

This has brought me a lot of frustration when using firefox on Kubunto. But as I use the system only on the Pen Drive, I have no plans to install Chorme. Because I need the system only there and now.

Of course, I tried in many ways to correct my problem. I even formatted this Kubunto system. I tested with other linux systems. But they all have a problem with the same plugin, in firefox.

Could someone help me with this problem? I always used everything normal. It only started to happen about 3 months ago.
