Please allow me to preface with I do not know how to code at all and I have found some options to make the scroll bar disappear, but with coding, and I'm hoping for an option that takes that away easily.

I don't think it is any of my extensions causing this, and I don't think it's an option in Firefox to remove the scroll bar.

Please help if possible! It doesn't disappear even when I'm watching videos on fullscreen.

Thank you.

Any help towards a solution would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have a user who runs SRS/Crystal Reports on their Windows 11 Lenovo laptop, but every time we go to the website where a Java-enabled pop-up window for viewing spreadsheets is supposed to load we keep getting a "A plugin is required to play this content" error message, but no option to install/approve the running of Javascript.

I have downloaded and installed the JRE and JDK on the endpoint device, but still no luck getting Firefox to load it. I am running the 32-bit version of the web browser, not 64-bit, so I am kind of stumped about how to proceed from here.

Is there a place I can manually download/install these Java plug-ins?

Thanks.

I want to re-order the add-ons / extensions in the toolbar shared with the search bar. Customize toolbar only has functions/icons related to the operation of Firefox. I want to customize the extensions toolbar, but how?

In the add-ons page, I can remove, disable, or enable extensions, but I cannot change the order of them.

As an example, there is an add-on for my Firefox account that is leftmost in the bar of extension icons. I would like to move it all the way to the right. Again, how would I do that?

Thanks for your help.

I have never had trouble with swiping left and right with 2 fingers to go back and forward between webpages. Recently, this has stopped working. I have updated Firefox to 111.0 and have double checked the browser.gesture settings as being "Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate" and the corollary for forward. This is for Firefox on a Mac Air running Ventura. Any advice is appreciated.

I have two computers, one for personal use and one for business. Somehow the tabs between the two computers are being shared and I cannot disable it. Both browsers are signed into different Firefox accounts, Sync is turned off on both, and there are no connected devices. Yet despite that, when I go to one computer, it pops up a Firefox icon (see attached) in the taskbar that lets me open the tab open on the other computer. This is incredibly frustrating and Firefox should not automatically share this information, and should not make it so difficult to disable.

i own a macbook and have recently switched from chrome to firefox- in my mac settings, it hasnt given firefox the permissions to use my microphone or camera. it doesnt show up the usual list to be able to allow the permissions. i've enabled microphone and camera permissions for the websites i want through firefox, but i cant even unmute myself. i think i need firefox to give me a popup and ask for microphone permissions, but it hasnt done that- and even if it did, i think it would show up in the list for allowing permissions through my mac settings (it shows applications that have requested for microphone access).

When I watch fullscreen videos in another browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.) on my Mac the video fills the entire screen. For some reason when doing the same in firefox the video does not reach to fill the entire screen and instead only occupies the middle. I tried screenshotting to illustrate this behavior but the screenshot was restricted to this middle zone as well. It seems like somehow firefox is shrinking the display size when no other browser exhibits the same behavior.

It also seems like if I want I can drag the video window around in fullscreen moving the whole video player around my display. I shouldn't have to drag the thing around to get the video to play right.

One particular website that I login to frequently in Firefox suddenly stopped opening the login screen when I click "Login." It opens in Safari and Tor browsers, but not Firefox. How do I get the login screen to appear? I have disabled enabled Pop Up Windows for this site, but it still won't load the login screen. It works in Troubleshoot mode. What does that mean and how do I get it to load the login screen in normal mode?

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Firefox displayed a pop-up box on 10/30/22 or 10/31/22 that I accidentally agreed to. The appearance of all my tabs and screens changed. I'm not interested in any other themes. Community support said to install "System" theme to get the default back, but it's not completely the same. For example, checkboxes on forms display as white checkmarks which are hard to see. In my email, the messages and replies display oddly and are hard to read as the contrast is poor. HOW DO I GET ALL MY DEFAULT BACK?

The issues I am facing with outlook mail seems to have occurred within the last 3 months. I have used outlook in Chrome and there is no issue. I have gone to the Microsoft site and there are several complaints that Outlook is not usable with Firefox. On my company machine, I limit my personal email to Firefox.

Other web pages seem to be fine, just outlook mail. I use Firefox for most of my testing & personal and Chrome for corporate browsing.

The issues start occurring after about 5 min, within the last month. I am a MacOS user and I have v.104. The issues face range from not limited emails listed, missing icons, javaScript drop-downs not working, not being able to delete emails, not being able to restore emails.

When I refresh the page, more recently Outlook crashes. My cache for Outlook is around 13-14Mb. When I clear the cache, things are fine for about 5-10 min. When the page refresh fails, I get the following consistent error message:- UTC Date: 2022-08-30T18:49:33.551Z Client Id: 1069883F64C04966AFA704CEF4EF3E78 Session Id: a338a732-ad52-4dee-a388-43aac7dac2b8 Client Version: 20220819006.08 BootResult: cdnError Failed resource: https://res-geo.cdn.office.net/owamail/20220819006.08/scripts/../resources/locale/en-gb/owa.MailListItemThreeColumnView.json err: Error: Failed to load localized strings esrc: InitLoc et: ClientError estack: c@https://outlook.live.com/mail/0/?bO=2&sessionId=a338a732-ad52-xxxx-a388-43aac7dac2b8:341:116883 a/a<@https://outlook.live.com/mail/0/?bO=2&sessionId=a338a732-ad52-xxx-a388-43aac7dac2b8:341:116563

Is there a security setting that allows me to show all my passwords rather than having to toggle them on each time?

I am a recluse. There's never anyone looking over my shoulder. I just don't want to have to mess with it anymore.

If there isn't, could some kind developer please make an add-on?

I am using two computers: an iMac (late 2009) running 10.13.6 (High Sierra) and a Macbook Pro (13-inch, 2012) running 10.15.7 (Catalina).

Thank you!
