I am running Firefox 76.0.1 on GalliumOS 3.1 on a Lenovo N21. For some reason, my add ons don't show up or work, even though they are installed. Firefox works great on my other two machines, and used to work great on this one. Thank you Jason Stone.

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

At the top of my home page I consistently get spams to download Edge. My Firefox browser is up to date version 78.0.2. I should be able to keep my home page safe from constant spamming. I have searched numerous ways to control what I view & come empty handed. It appears Mozilla & Microsoft are in cahoots. I managed to block it with AdBlock but the update removed my block. Why do you even allow this? Your help is appreciated. Thanks

jscher2000,

"Do you mean search engines appear even before you start typing anything to search?"

Yes, as soon as i bring the cursor to the Search box. the drop down box appears.

I opened my Home page and all of the boxes under Firefox Home Content I had unclicked during set up.

My home page is set to blank page and New Tabs the same.

I turned them back on to do as you described but the three dots never appeared in the corner and everything remained the same so i turned them off again.

Thanks for trying to help.

cannot log in to my Bank of Montreal online banking!!!

I've used Firefox for years, and for years I daily do my online banking.

Now all of a sudden, without any warning I cannot log into my bank account. I've tried clearing history, etc. I've tried the about:config change...

I can log in fine with Microsoft Edge.

My wife uses Firefox and she can log into the bank. I suspect that is because Firefox has not updated on her computer.

This is maddening, to put it mildly.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I have checked this problem in the forum and the answers are all 3 years old and the about:config no longer contains the items they say to fix as described.

When I click in the search box to start to type a search, a drop down menu appears showing several other search engines. All of which I removed as alternates in the "One Click" search engine Options.

I do not want Firefox offering anyone an option to use another Search engine.

Can this drop down menu be disabled ?

The forum solution fixes, for this situation, no longer apply to the current version of Firefox

Thanks

Good day! I recently had trouble adding bookmarks to my favorites lists. Previously, when you press the keys "ctrl+D", a window opens for choosing where to save the tab (bookmarks bar, bookmarks menu), and now when you press the specified combination, everything immediately falls into the other bookmarks folder .... Is this problem solved? In the settings, I could not find.

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.
