A white bar completely covers the top of the browser. It is if the menu bar has disappeared. If I try and click where the menu bar should be I click right through the window to the other open applications below.

This has happened a few times and the only way to remedy it is to reboot the machine.

Image attached.

Any idea what is happening?

I've made several TAB GROUPS with the STG plugin. But when I want to close the tab group windows I get a warning like: "You are about to close 37 tabs. Are you sure you want to continue?" What? How do I close the windows without closing all the tabs and loosing them? Isn't the purpose of using STG to help you organize all of your open tabs so that you CAN close the windows? Or, when I close the STG Group and close the tabs, will they still be accessible through the STG Manage Groups window? Thanks for the help!

Every few days, my firefox homepage settings and options reset to factory defaults. I normally have about 8 pages that open EVERY time i create a new window and its frustrating to have to manually re-add them to the homepage every few days. Same thing with my toolbars - they reset every few days. my default pdf viewer also changes every few days. Bookmarks are still present - just the

I use the 'options' , 'homepage', 'use current pages' to set these up. I am running the latest version 85.0.1. I have seen other threads on this topic and so far none of those suggestions have helped.

Please help.

I am using Firefox with Default Search Engine set to Duck Duck Go. I seem to be unable to connect to duckduckgo.com be it either through typing my search in the address bar or duckduckgo.com. All I get is: "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." Internet connection seems fine (no trouble connecting to other sites). Sometimes clearing "Cached Web Content" helps but it is troublesome to clear cache after each browser restart. How can I get the Duck to work with the Fox?

Selected options: Use the address bar for search and navigation Default Search Engine - DuckDuckGo Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

84.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Manjaro Linux Manjaro - 1.0

I would be happy to provide any additional information if needed.

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

In attempting to print 1099 tax reporting forms from my investment company, a number of the "tables" are completely blacked out. I had this issue on the same forms one year ago, as well. The reports had a label at the top that read: STMT Retriever.aspx_MozillaFirefox. I printed those forms instantly with my phone. When it happened again just today, I gave it further thought; so I brought up the Microsoft Edge browser, brought up my investment account, and brought up the first page that was blacked out with the Firefox browser. The page printed perfectly, just as it had with my phone.

This occurred on both my laptop and my desktop computers. Can someone please tell me why this is happening and if there is a way to make this work with Firefox?

thank you, Ralph Bohannon

When I select Print from the cal menu, I get the window preview which is normal. When selecting PRINT, nothing comes up. It just sits there. It used to bring up a dialog box to select printer (pdf, etc) This happens on multiple Windows machines and has for months. I just tried adding an exception for the pop-up blocker, no effect. Thanks!

I set my options to notify me of upgrades to Firefox, and I do download and install them regularly. Not anymore. 85.0.2 caused a major problem. It would crash regularly with any redirect. Probably not using technical term, but as examples: 1) in yahoo mail reading email from local paper, click on read more and it crashed (never did before) 2) on my child's school website and click to view lunch menu - crash!!! Firefox became totally useless. Crash turns monitors black and then screen identifies crash, it will go back to the previous page, but just don't try to click on anything or crash again.

Fix: you can't "downgrade" or uninstall update - so I found a good "restore point" in Windows 10 that took me back to Firefox 84.0.2 (FYI 85.0 seemed to work, but I don't want any hassles). If you try to use Firefox after "restoring" it will still try to ask you to update to the newer version. So, you have to go into registry and disable the updates. Restart and presto, Firefox back to normal operation (the dreaded 85.0.2 is still downloaded, but it won't install or ask you to install it all the time).

I hope someone fixes this. I wish I knew more about computer programming and could help. I will wait for a good while before trying to update or install a newer version. It's a shame because I appreciate the security fixes. I LOVE Mozilla Firefox but this incident woke me up to the imperfect nature of this science.
