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 refreshed Firefox, now Lastpass and Ghostery don't show up in my toolbar or work anymore (Mac OS 10.9.5). I removed the Lastpass extension, then reinstalled to no avail. Oddly, Adblock Plus is in my toolbar and works fine. Attached photo shows Adblock, but no Lastpass or Ghostery icons in my toolbar.

Hello Community

Do hope someone can help?

Have tried all suggestions in Support area on topic: Lost/Recover Bookmarks. Also spoke to Windows Support and was told to call Mozilla Firefox Technical Support. I've been unable to find a number.

I had a Windows update around the same time as a Firefox update, May/June, only realised all saved bookmarks prior to June 2020 have disappeared. This has never happened before.

Urgently need to find out if there's a method of retrievel or have it confirmed that all of these very important bookmarks are permanently lost.

Thank you in advance

Subject says it all - just about. When I attempt to open one particular website, I enter my userID and password and when screen opens it is not to the website selected but to a screen showing information about Oracle iPlanet Web Site. Cannot find a way to get past this screen. Been accessing this site daily for months without a hitch. A few weeks ago this happened one time. I closed FireFox and reopened and worked as it should . Then yesterday this started again and happens every time. Can access from Safari. Only install one new application recently, TotalAV but that was about 10 days ago.m Will attempt to add screen shot of what I see. The website I am attempting to access is in connection with my employer and I need to access it on at least a weekly basis. Other websites of my employer work fine. Please advise ehw

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

I am in Windows 7, 64-bit. All of a sudden all of my Firefox logins and passwords are missing. I read several threads about this, which told me to check the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop for the logins.json file. However, the only information in that folder is from 2018, two full years ago. Where did my logins and passwords from yesterday go?

Also, I just updated to version 80.0.1, hoping to get my passwords and logins back, but they are sill missing. The problem just occurred today, before I updated from version 79-something.

Thank you for any help you can give. This is extremely upsetting.

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

For about a month I'm unable to log into my Yahoo Mail account from Firefox on my Mac. All the proper screens appear and I fill them in, but when I hit "login" Firefox hangs. I see the circle thingy rotating indefinitely.

I know this is a Firefox issue because I can access my mail from another browser (e.g. Safari). I think it also relates specifically to Macs because I've never had this issue on my PC.

Firefox is the latest version (78.2.0esr (64-bit)). The Mac is a Mac Pro Mid-2012 running Yosemite 10.10.5.

Thank you!

Strange thing happend today. I opened firefox and found myself with my preset fonts resetted. Never ever have I encountered this in around 20 years of using the browser.

Even worse than the unsollicited reset, I went to Settings > Fonts and Colors to get the fonts back to my preference and I was confronted with my fonts no longer showing up in the list. Yet they are there in my Windows 10 list.. as well as all other browsers I tried to find out what on earth has happened.

I vaguely remember that one or two days ago firefox had updated. Not sure what was updated or whether it doesn't even have to anything to do with that but some obscure settings I accidentally turned on or of I have no idea. I cant find similar problem posted by someoen online either.
