I wish to stop the new pop-up update notification message built into Firefox 69.0.#.

A pop-up message is not necessary, irritating and tiresome.

Why is there no option available to turn it off?

How do I get firefox portable to notify me of updates and download them to a USB flash drive instead of leaving files on other people's computers?

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?

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?

Recently, I am no longer able to print an attachment from Gmail. The print icon simply brings up a dialog box to choose between opening or saving a pdf (it defaults to pdf even if the attachment is a word doc, image, or spreadsheet). This is a recent development and happens on both of my mac computers. I have started Firefox without any add-ons enabled, but it didn't help.

I've tried multiple things to fix redirect including running Malwarebytes installing several add-ons to stop redirect and nothing works. All the Firefox instructions in settings do not work or are not there. The forms have apparently thousands of solutions and I haven't got time to wait through all those. Very confusing. Firefox does not offer any real help

I have two email IDs -

@abc.com and @xyz.abc.com

I need Firefox to treat them as different login credentials. Right now, Firefox is looking at abc.com part of the email ID only and thus treating them both as same. So, every time I change password of one, it asks me to update the other email's saved password.

1) Refreshing Gmail tabs 2) Using new tabs to open those Gmail tabs 3) Resetting Firefox

I tried those actions, and none of them seem to fix this issue.

Based on my personal usage since the update to 69.0, this issue currently seems to only apply to Gmail.

This function seems to work fine on other web pages/sources.

I have this problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/820877

Except that all dropdowns are affected, including the ones that would let me open the settings menu and try the suggestions that worked for other people. These are pull down menus, address bar, settings menu, spellcheck, and any other pop-up/pull-down menus.
