Firefox 70 has made the tab hight taller, and now they overlap the window frame on my computer (Win 7). How do I get them back to their size in Firefox 69 and stop them from eating into the frame? CSS is fine.

I'm feeling sick of Firefox because it's wasting my time -- I do a lot of online research, and I just want to simply click on a link and go to the site! Instead Firefox browser opens a new tab every time I click on a link. Which means I have to wade through a pile of old tabs, and spend precious moments closing them.

Is my brower not working right? Or can the settings be changed? Or is that just the way Firefox works nowadays? I've tried various Tab Options -- but none of them simply make it so a link goes straight to a site, without opening a new tab or window.

Help!

My wifi plan is of 50 Mbps. When checked on Firefox via Ookla speedtest it shows only 9 to 10 Mbps. It has been showing this since the past week, before that it was accurate to 50 Mbps. Also when checked on Ookla Speedtest app on Windows, the speed is accurate (50 Mbps). I was trying to attach screenshots but it is stuck on 'Loading'.

At the moment I have 4 pages open in tabs.

But each of them except the current page have lost their content and if I switch back each tab has to reload the page.

This just started happening after the lastest update. 67.0

For example I am on support community page if I tab back to Youtube which was open, it is now blank, has the tab description but reloads the page.

It's the same for all the tabs.

Any ideas. It's very annoying and thinking perhaps time to switch to chrome.

Ok, Ive been having this really annoying problem. Been having it for a little while now. Ive noticed only on youtube that 1080p video's play back is choppy. The videos will freeze and then start playing after a few seconds, audio keeps playing. I started doing some testing. Ive found out that its only 1080p videos at 60 fps. If its not 60 fps it will play the video fine. Ive tried downloading google chrome to see if it did the same thing. Google chrome plays 1080p videos at 60 fps fine. So that rules out it being the computer I think. Video's off line play fine also, I tried to uninstall firefox and reinstall it didnt fix it. Only add on I have on fire fox is adblock plus. This issue is starting to drive me nuts!!! Not sure what else to do.

After updating to Firefox 66.0 on MacOS 10.13.6 today, websockets on my localhost stopped working.

When using Create React App (version of "react-scripts": "2.1.8" => "webpack-dev-server": "3.1.14" => "sockjs": "0.3.19"), hot reload is broken and I get following error in the console:

`The connection to ws://localhost:3000/sockjs-node/743/khw0phgj/websocket was interrupted while the page was loading.`

When I tried https://www.websocket.org/echo.html, it works fine and no problems with hot reload in Chrome 72.0.

How can I debug and fix this problem please? (when I googled the error message, I got a lot of outdated advice from previous versions of Firefox)

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

I cannot access a clients site that I'm working on due to an HSTS error, I used to be able to bypass this with test.currentTimeOffsetSeconds, however it seems to not work anymore.

I use Firefox for development because it has better tools than any browser I've use in the past, however this is a real blocker for me, since the sites I'm working on don't have DNS names yet and can't get updated certificates till then.

I've also manually added an exception in the certificate options, though that also didn't work.

Please guys, I've always been pushing people to use Firefox, though if it starts limiting my options without any way to bypass it if I feel I need to do something, then I'll be forced to go hunting for a browser that gives me more freedom, not to mention this is costing me work hours.

I know this has probably been asked before, but none of the solutions really work for me. Playing Youtube or other video on sites like Vimeo result in choppy playback. I have ruled out hardware problems, because playing local video works fine. This issue also occurs on Chrome, and turning on or off hardware acceleration does nothing.
