New logo at top of home page. What's the quickest/easiest way to get rid of it ?

Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!! There's always ******* one isn't there !!? - someone with a crap idea who thinks the world needs to see it. How many hrs worldwide is going to be wasted today by people like me trying to undo this crud ? This isn't the first time some ignorant little ******* has forced their crap on firefox end users.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

MyYahoo has a 'weather' application. It has stopped working. I've tried safe mode (it still fails). I've disabled my anti-virus software, it still fails. It works in Chrome, Edge and Opera, so it would seem to be a Firefox issue. I am running Firefox 83.0 64-bit. Any work-arounds or resolutions?

Firefox version - 82.0.03 64bits

I applied the -no-deelevate fix when I last upgraded and that worked ok Yesterday I ran Windows update - always a bad idea I know - and fixed the problems that caused, but now Firefox will no longer allow picture drag and drop. This IS a firefox issue because Chrome still works ok without any elevation command.

I have also done this: browser.launcherProcess - turn off, then turn back on

Any ideas please ?

Hello,

In the past 2 months i have a weird problem, FF keeps randomly logging me out of my accounts, FB, Yahoo Mail, Instagram, Google Account, etc, it is a totally random event, not on closing or startup, and sometimes even in the middle of a session. I don't have too many addons or extensions installed except Ad Block Plus and Dictionary. I don't use an antivirus, not even the default one from Windows 10, everything is deactivated, and i manually scan from time to time with Malwarebytes, no infections. Also, Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed i have this unchecked as it should be. I also cleared all data, but still nothing, the problem persists. It is very annoying to keep logging in everyday on all my sites and accounts, so please, if u have a solution, help me. :)

Thank you

Why does Firefox delete ALL history when it asks if you'd like to clear RECENT history. I was silly enough to click on a phishing link and although I exited as soon as I realised nothing was happening, I asked my security system provider if there was anything I could or should do. Could I login to my bank account, for instance. They suggested removing the item from my browser history. So when I saw the option to delete RECENT history, I thought that would be OK - I didn't need anything I had visited recently. But when I looked I noticed that it had cleared the lot!!
