We used to be able to organize our extension buttons and icons in the toolbar, beside the address bar. However, I just updated Firefox and can no longer show these icons on the toolbar. Instead, they're hidden in the Extensions menu (with the puzzle-piece icon)

This is annoying.

There are some extensions I use many times a day, like my password manager. Is there a way to move my extension/plugin buttons back to the toolbar?

Autologin for youtube not working after update (not password autofill)

Before Update: I have two different YouTube workflows on two different systems. Although I use ONE Mozilla account, I was able to get automatic sign on for TWO different systems. This meant that I was not automatically logged into the other account as long as I was on the appropriate device.

After Update: Auto-login is only working on my main system's Firefox (without new update). I now have to re-log into my production YT account manually. The reason I can identify this was after the update is because I now have an "old Firefox data" folder on my desktop, aswell as all my extensions being re-installed.

Considerations/Clarifications - I do not mean auto-fill passwords. I mean that my account is already ready to go when I access the YT site. - I use a few security extensions. I understand that these may have an impact on my browser's ability to save passwords. However, for the past 7 years, this has never been a problem given similar extensions.

    - Extension List: Privacy Badger, Adblock, Adblock plus, Adblock for YT, DuckDuckGo privacy essentials,  Facebook container, and Decentraleyes.

Any help is appreciated.

I am perpetually annoyed by Firefox's tab hotkeys. Meant to type "^" when writing an equation? Well, too bad, you accidentally pressed ctrl instead of shift, you are now on the 6th tab of your whole browser, and you gotta go find the tab you were on. The ctrl+page up/down hotkeys are slightly less annoying, although still very infuriating. Is there any way to disable this behavior?

My search engine page when I click on FF changed to Bing this morning. I installed Avast Virus Remover yesterday, and nothing else. All methods given on all the answer pages did not work (do not find the link) or I do not know how to get to the command (e.g. Tools - xxxx - xxx - which tools?) I can't open FF so I can't use any of its options, unless there is a way to open FF without this Bing thing.

Win 10. I ran all the AV's and malware programs and they found nothing because I really do not surf a lot. I can't say which version of FF because I can't open FF

Thanks

Hi, I use the Firefox Developer Edition for Windows Desktop (112.0b4 (64-bit) on daily basis. When I play the Udemy DRM content nothing goes wrong first and the browser loads the page well. But after some time passed I see that Firefox stops to load the page and the tab spinning infinitely. Pressing the realod button doesn't help. The only solution is to restart the browser. I use no-proxy setting. The refreshing of the browser didn't help either. I have configured the following options in the "about:config" but it didn't help as well: network.dns.disableIPv6 : true network.dns.disablePrefetch : true network.http.http3.enabled: false

When I copy paste stuff, and who knows when, I see a bunch of word suggestions at the top of the right click context menu, with an option to enter them into a dictionary, whatever and wherever that is. I see nothing at all in the settings corresponding to this, and just want to completely disable that BS: It's just garbage in the way of me doing my tasks. How do I disable this, and/or the entire spell checker and dictionary, etc. if necessary? I know how to spell. Don't need it. Thanks.

Opening the Pocket website on Firefox to view saved articles has text that overlaps.

Opening the Pocket website to view the very same saved articles on other web browsers like Microsoft Edge or Brave don't have such a problem. Attached screenshots of how the Pocket website presents on Firefox vs Edge.

Any idea when this might be fixed?

Malwarebytes & Privacy Badger appear not to be working, though shown as 'enabled' in 'Extensions'. No blocked content is indicated. Adverts appear on lse.co.uk which can cause all four CPU's on Intel i5 to hit hi 90%. This problem appears to have started in this release.

Have disabled Privacy Badger and installed Adblocker Ultimate. This seems to have cleared the problem and Malwarebytes Browser Guard is now reporting results. Can't see how to mark problem as fixed??

A further observation which may be related to this problem. Response time seems very sluggish on FF 112.0.1

I have re-enabled both Privacy Badger & MalwareBytes and disabled Adblocker Ultimate. Both appear to be functioning now.

I have noticed that the WebExtensions process can consume as much and sometimes double the CPU & memory resource as that needed for the Firefox process. Is this to be expected? Do I need these extra security features, or are they built-in to the browser anyway?

Hi, I made a theme but have since not used it and swapped to another. Everytime I open the browser, it swaps back to the one I made for some reason. Under themes, it will still say the one that is showing is the chosen theme, but it most certainly is the one I made. I turn on another theme and toggle back to the chosen theme and it then changes correctly. Any idea why that could be?

Lockwise on My iPhone 13 forgot my login and asked for a password for some reason. As I have turned on 2-step verification it asked for the code from Google Authenticator. However this code was not accepted and I had to use one of my recovery codes. Now I am logged in and would love to disable the 2-step verification, as it does not work, but there is no such option in the app.

Hey all,

I have a very weird problem after yesterday.

So I was on Youtube and I pressed the search button and a pop-up came from Firefox. I don't know anymore what it was and I just clicked on something. After that my Youtube search button is't working anymore when I click it with my mouse. When I enter a text and press my enter button it still works.

When I go to another browser or use Firefox Incognito mode it also works. When I log out of my account, it works. When I use a new profile it works.

So I installed Firefox and reinstalled it again. Installed my add-ons again and tested it again. And it worked again. But from the moment when I logon on Youtube website with Firefox it DOESN'T work anymore.

This simply drives me crazy lol. So it works on 99% of the time only when I use Firefox on my account even with a new profile my search button doesn't work again.

Could this be a Firefox setting within the Youtube website or a Firefox permission thing which isn't carried over from a new profile?

I don't know how on earth I could fix this issue and I'm hoping someone here could help me with the setting inside Firefox that could make my Youtube search button work again on my left mouse click.

Thanks in advance.

I have different login forms on different sub domains so I always get a huge lists of different logins. and also I get my password for the basic auth from the web-server on my login form.

I also consider this as a security risk when different sub domains belong to different parties and I accidentally put my password into the wrong form.

Can I config Firefox the way that I get only passwords in the list that match the exact url or at least the (sub)domain?

Another Question As a Web-developer can I do something that my client don't experience such a mess (like giving the login form a special id so passwords are restricted do this particular form.

Google's websites works badly with Hardware Acceleration On (Google, Youtube, Gmail, Google Maps, ...)

Hi everyone, I am currently using Firefox "112.0.1 (64-bit)" on Windows 10 "10.0.19045 Build 19045]"

I have problems using almost all Google websites: most of the times they do not load at first attempt, and when they do they do not works properly. As example: Youtube does not load (or the cached version says that there is no internet connection), then after a few attempts it loads but all thumbnails on the home are gray.

On another browser (Edge) all websites works normally.

Using private window has the same problem, I have no extension and no plugin other than OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.. I tried emptying cache and also reinstalling Firefox.

The only fix I found on the web is to disable hardware acceleration from settings. If I disable it and restart the browser, then all websites works normally. Actually I can't see this as fix but as a workaround, since I am using a notebook and I'd like to use my GPU for video decoding and save energy.

Maybe I am missing something? Is there something I can do? Thanks.

When I search directly from the address bar, the search always defaults to google.com/....whatever I am searching for. But even though my region is set to United Kingdom, my search results are definitely not the same as if I were to navigate to www.google.co.uk and then search for the same string. Is there any way for the default google search to use google.co.uk rather than google.com Thanks?
