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.

My Firefox Browser has just updated itself automatically to 78.0.2 (I use it with MacOs 10.14.16). Since then, I have been unable to access Wikipedia. Whether I enter an url or I try a search through the search bar with the Wikipedia module the result is the same: nothing happens at all. If the url bar is empty it remains empty, if there was another url before it comes back instead of the wikipedia url I typed. The same thing is occurring on both my MacBook Air and my iMac which run under a previous version of MacOs.

I bought a new computer. I read about how to transfer over your profile. On my old computer I located the folder, and went up one level as it said. I had 2 files there, not 1 .I saved these files. I installed firefox on my new computer and followed the same steps to locate the folder. It also had 2 files, with different names. I STUPIDLY deleted these two files and put in the two I had copied from my old compter. Turned offirefox and turned it back on. It would notopen because it said it couldnot locate my profile folder. I uninstalled Firefox, and reinstalled it. I still get the same error.

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I thought uninstalling and reinstalling it would solve the first part of the program but as of now, I have no Firefox.

Any suggestions from anyone.

There is a website that I used today and discovered that it does not display correctly on Firefox although it displays correctly on Edge and Chrome.

I have attached screenshots of the webpage on all 3 browsers and you can see that the there are 2 ticks missing from the Firefox screen where the text says Available in-store at Karingal and at Pick up Avaliable.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode but it still did not show this screen correctly.

I am running Firefox for Desktop version 78.0.2 (64-bit).

Any suggestions on what is causing this and a solution would be helpful.

Thanks.

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.

After updating from 77 to 78.0.1, I've experienced a large number of tab crashes ("Gah. Your tab just crashed.") across multiple sites. No crash logs are available in about:crashes. I've tried:

  • Starting in safe mode
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • disabling security software (Webroot SecureAnywhere)
  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Making sure latest drivers and Windows updates are installed
  • Run Windows system file checker tool (no errors found)

I use Firefox with screen reading software, so it is possible the issue may be accessibility related. I've tested with JAWS and Windows Narrator and experience the tab crashes under both.

OS is Windows 10 Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.900)

I am using Firefox 78 on Windows 10. I have to fill many fields of text in wordpress frequently on a daily basis. Almost all of these values appear as suggestions below the text field once I click on it, just like a drop down menu (but not a drop down menu, it actually works in proper menus). Previously, when I would hover over the selections, it would highlight them, letting me know exactly what I would be clicking prior to clicking it. Now that option is gone (with the new update) and I have to guess or look really closely to see where exactly the pointer is pointing, with a hit and miss result. Can you please bring back the ability to highlight the text suggestions? Or show me a way to re-enable it if that's possible. Thanks.

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading
