Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?

Before the attempted "repairs" I had a browser that idled at 700mgs on the home page of the browser, now after over 15 hours on this damnable site, and all the repairs attempted the browser now idles at 800mgs on the home page. It seems the "people" of mozilla have deleted my previous question since the Moderator came out to brow beat and insult me because jscher2000 withheld the data needed and start investigating my use of the browser rather than answer question.

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?

I am using Firefox as portable app, with --no-remote --profile "%profile_path%". I update it regularly, it's convenient for me to see notifications of new updates and install them whenever I see fit. I recently noticed that Firefox creates a folder on every computer C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates, which is not good for the portable version, really. The only way to stop this I found was to completely disable updates via distribution\policies. I don't want to. How do I get firefox to notify me of updates and download them to a USB flash drive (it will be perfect if i could specify folder for this purpose) instead of leaving files on other people's computers?

Hi all,

I realise I can disable the Automatically Redirecting/Refreshing globally, which is the default setting that I wish to have. However I have a number of sites that I use on an almost daily use where I want to have exceptions and allow redirecting/refreshing.

Is it possible to have per site exceptions? Even if through an addon?

Thanks

I am using the newest version of firefox, I have no idea on what key I accidentally pressed. My address bar is now very fat, and there's a blank space above the tabs, and that bar is not the title bar. I have tried installing themes but that didn't do the trick. I am using windows 7.

How do I restore firefox to its default view?

I use multiple tabs when running Firefox (usually 7). My computer system says the processing speed is 1.60 GHz w/3GB (2.75GB) that is 64 bit. I have Ghostery & Noscript as extensions, a Firefox theme & Shockwave 32/OpenH264/Widevine Content Decryption Module as add ons. I just need to know whether my computer processor will work with this version of Firefox or not. Thank you for keeping it simple & for any answers I may receive.
