Almost every time I open FF I have to sign in and sync, and start my browsing from scratch. My previous session does not open: I have tried several times to set my preferences to restore previous session. Sometimes the session is there but after opening and closing the browser a few times the session is lost.

I am trying to change the text color and background color of the menus that drop-down from the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox. I have tried the user-Chrome.css suggestion but it doesn't work. I can't include a screenshot as the menus disappear as soon as I try. Themes don't seem to change that part of the display. Any help appreciated. Thanks

How can I completely remove the bar above the URL bar? I don't need to see horizontal tabs or the Close/Minimize/Restore buttons.

I can close/minimize/restore by right-clicking the Firefox box on my Linux Mint's bottom panel.


My userChrome.css looks like this:

/* Hide horizontal tabs at the top of the window */
#tabbrowser-tabs {
  visibility: collapse !important;
}

#titlebar {
  visibility: collapse;
}


#tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: hidden !important; }
tab { display: none !important; }

#sidebar-header {
  visibility: collapse !important;
}

I want to vote by mail but the Elections Canada PDF has this message on top: "This PDF document contains forms. The filling of form fields is not supported." Googled this extensively but there is no Adobe PDF reader listed in Firefox "options" or "add-ons". Only Firefox default PDF reader is available. Adobe is not listed under Open with different viewer - Other..., either. The default Firefox reader won't allow me to fill in the form and print it. Needless to say, I'm very upset I won't be able to vote. I am a wheelchair user with very serious medical problems and cannot leave my home to go to a voting station. This must be a new thing FF is doing because I filled out and printed this form to vote in our election four years ago. What possible reason does Mozilla have for not allowing someone to fill out and/or print a form?

Using Firefox 69.0.1 on Linux Mint. I created a new profile (using `firefox -P` in terminal). But this new profile doesn't have a folder called "chrome", which my other profile folder (the one i've been using since I got this laptop a year ago) does. The reason I want to access the chrome folder is because I want to tweak UserChrome.css.

As said in the title. I am an everyday user, I download files often. Suddenly, the download window's OK button stopped working, staying grey. Everything else with the browser seems to work. Other browsers work fine. I tried restarting the computer and even reinstalling Firefox. Cannot download or open files anymore, which makes this browser unusable until the problem is solved.

buenas tardes.

Os escribo porque firefox se me cierra inesperadamente. He probado a desinstalarlo y reinstalarlo, he revisado que tenga todas las actualizaciones y todo lo que mencionais en vuestra pàgina. El uso de memoria de firefox con 8-10 pestañas abiertas es de 1.149mb de ram lo que creo qu es excesivo.

Como puedo hacer para evitar que se me cierre firefox solo.

Muchas gracias

The "permissions" area of the settings doesn't let users input a site and manage it as it describes in the documentation.

I'm having an issue with google, I use google voice for making calls with my Mac using firefox version 69 (and 69.0.1) and until recently I was able to have firefox remember that I granted google permission to access my microphone. Now it asks every time I make a call and the microphone is accessed. The documentation says there should be a "remember this decision" box, but none exists. It also says I would be able to go into the permission settings and mark it as always allow, but that isn't an option either, just allow or block. The absence of the more permanent permissions is similar to other permission windows like for notifications and location sharing. There is a box to block future requests in the settings but that applies to all sites and it blocks instead of allows. What am I missing? I haven't made any recent changes to settings or extensions. Any information you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.

On some sites, clicking on a PDF results in it being opened in Google Drive where it looks like gibberish. Firefox is ignoring the preference to open PDFs in Mac Preview. Opening in the Firefox PDF viewer also did not work.

The problem goes away if I disable "Google PDF Viewer" add-in.
