A Norton Support agent went and refreshed my Firefox. Now some of my toolbar items are missing, and maybe other things. There is now an "Old Firefox" folder on my desktop. Can I restore Firefox to what is was before that agent did the "refresh".

2 problems just started happening after years using: 1) when I attempt to bookmark the box give me 3 folders to pick from or choose like normal but when you select choose you don't get a list of all your folders to scroll and select from. Now it only allows me the those 3 shown or new folder option, and if I don't pick one fast enough it automatically just saves and closes which brings up 2) when a bookmark is saved it doesn't go at the bottom of the list of bookmarks as usual but can be found in "recently bookmarked" where I can then move it. additionally when I make a new folder it does not go into my list of bookmarks either. The folder will show up in "other bookmarks" tab and has to be dragged and placed in my bookmark list. searched around and can't find a way to restore it to normal.

According to my options dialog, Google is my default search engine. However, when I type any text in the address bar, the browser uses Yahoo to perform the search. Every answer I see tells me to go to "options" and change the default to Google, but Google is already set as the default.

I want the address bar default search enfine to be Google.

Hi for some reasons today at the very end of the day my Youtube done something strange. For some time now i've been using script with tempermonkey that let me have old youtube layout. But in the matter of seconds when i was changing songs i spot this strange problem with borders of youtube. Before both comments section and recommended video section was with this kind of borders that left some part of page blank white. But as of now i have not only problem with the basic view in which whole video is shifted to the center of the screen leaving black screen on the right side, but also whole layout being i think mix between old an new youtube. I tried uninstalling tempermonkey, disabling both adblock and ublock but it does nothing.

I'm on Firefox Quantum 61.0.2. Four years ago (1/16/14, 6:55 PM), when I was on 26.0, I posted here recollecting a feature in an earlier version where you could grab the little icon right left of the URL and drag it to a Finder container, and... a teensy file would appear, named something intelligent, with the extension ".webloc". Very handy sometimes.

That feature had disappeared, but, at the time, with your help, we figured out that Command-drag would do the same thing on Version 26.0.

Now, using Version 61, that feature has disappeared again. I tried dragging with nothing, Command, Option and Control. Each of them simply opened the tab in a new window. No webloc files were created. Any idea where this feature went?


Maybe there's a better way to solve my problem besides weblocs. For one of my frequently-performed tasks, I need to open four websites simultaneously, in four separate tabs. I can enter their URLs manually, but I was hoping to have a folder containing four weblocs that I could open all at once. An Applescript would work, but is there some other Firefox feature that I could learn to use that would accomplish the same thing?

It appears that while Firefox currently supports TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 it does not support TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384. Would it be possible to add support for this Cipher Suite?

The difference being support for CBC in addition to the currently supported GCM.

Only way to add bookmarks is to drag a link to the toolbar. Aside from that, I can't add them. I also can't delete them by any means whatsoever. I've already tried the solutions listed here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/changes-toolbars-and-window-sizes-are-not-saved they didn't work. I also don't have sync enabled so that wasn't the culprit either. None of my plugins are bookmark related. I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum. This is really infuriating, if it keeps up I'm going to have to go back to Google Chrome.

After disabling UBlock and changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only, while I no longer see the error: "Failed to load the Facebook SDK. Please make sure you are not blocking connect.facebook.net." However, I still get this message next to the Facebook icon: "Having trouble? Learn more." (Link for Learn more text: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113.) Refreshing the page changes nothing. This thread didn't help: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1130053. privacy.trackingprotection.enabled was already on false (at least after changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only).

Whenever I right click on something full screen I can't see the drop down menu, However when I shrink the browser window I can see the drop down appearing at the bottom of the window but behind it. Also the bookmark taskbar button to reveal the rest of my saved bookmarks pops that drop down to the right of the window only when it is NOT full screened. If it is full screened it cannot be seen. This problem started today following a refresh of Firefox due to some slow down that was happening.

my windows7 taskbar: 11+ replicate FF windows w-multiple tabs each is normal use for me. restart FF puts them in new order L to R i can deal with that but would like to be able to restart with these icons staying in the 'same places' because i'm getting old and cranky and forget where i put things more often now.

they're all up there on the taskbar OK but in a different order each time i restart FF. i don't recall locating a Topic similar, or seeing a likely category from Options.

i'm not in a Rush, but have found FF help questions successfully answered in the past. thanks for helping.
