  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

Greetings everyone,

This question has been on my mind for a long time as I have multiple Firefox Add-Ons I want to use but I've been avoiding using any Firefox Add-Ons as I do not know which Firefox Add-Ons are safe... :'(

Since I use Firefox for so many of my personal and important things I just want to know that the Firefox Add-Ons are safe.

How can I know which Firefox Add-Ons are safe?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

I just paid for and downloaded the Firefox VPN. I turned it on but there is NO ICON in the Firefox browser showing that it is active. Where is the HELP for this darn thing? I went to SETTINGS and it looks like it is turned on but there should be a HELP topic for this damn thing without drilling down for over 2,000 help topics! If I cannot know 100% that it is ON and working... then I'll get my money back. I don't have TIME to fool around with BULLSHIT! Be clear. Be comprehensive. Be succinct!

Amazon prime video will no longer play on Firefox. This started on 11/15/2020. Amazon Prime store and other features work fine, but when you select a video, the Amazon page and Firefox screen freezes in that the cursor travels over the screen and page but no matter where you click you get no response. You have to refresh the page and reload Amazon to get functionality back. I can stream video on Safari, but not on Firefox, and Firefox is my browser of choice as it is more content feature rich than Safari. I need to get my Amazon video streaming working again. Two additional issues, this is now happening with YouTube too. You can watch YouTube videos, but they take a great deal, sometimes over a minute or two, to load. Finally, I get a message on my Firefox page when I try to load Coinbase that I have to use Chrome, an idea that I detest, using any Google product. Please provide me with some answers and solutions. I have posed a number of questions regarding loss of use and features on the version of Firefox in the last week, and not one of them has been responded too, or answered, which really disappoints me as far as my opinion of the support you offer, volunteer or not. Not trying to bust your chops, but some support would be better than none. Thanks for your input. PLEASE give me a solution so I can continue to use Firefox. BTW when I clicked the " share data" button below, it erased over 30 minutes of work I did in this field and answer, and I had to start again from scratch, so I have over an hour invested in trying to contact you and get some support.

I can no longer stream CBS All Access. They are saying that I have some kind of ad blocking problem in my software therefore they cannot play movies with their ads. Firefox recently did a download on Nov. 18. It was 78.5 Oesr. Could that be the problem? Does 78.5 Oesr have some kind of an ad blocker? If so, how can I uninstall it?

I am inquiring what can be done to overcome this freeze on functionality. If the only folder that still functions is "Important", sending and receiving messages becomes largely impossible, or means sending extra messages, phone calls, or whatever else can be invented. Is this a general problem, I wonder? Any proposed swolutions will be much appreciated.

Hello. I downloaded a Netgear driver update utility zip file (??) and for some reason I got confused when it said it would open it with Windows Explorer... and I decided to have it opened with Firefox instead. To add dumb insult to dumb injury, I checked the box to have downloads do that with ALL files like that going forward. If i click on that downloaded file, more than 175 tabs open up before i can make it stop. How do I undo this? Thank you kindly in advance

Firefox unexpectedly quit, open tabs lost when MacBook Pro's charge died. After charging, did restart since Menu button to access History was missing (only menu bar visible). It returned, but unable to restore closed tabs (as I've done in the past) - History shows it to be "empty." I've spent hours searching Mozilla Support...can anyone please help? These 8-10 tabs must be somewhere!

I have been trying to install Firefox on a Windows computer running Windows 10 Pro. I have two users on the computer. I have installed Firefox successfully on the main user but every time I try to install for the second user, it does not install. it says it failed and leaves a strange icon on the desktop which, when I click, it deletes the file. I am not sure why. I have installed the same on 11 other computers with two users and no problem with those ones.
