The laptop is running V 69.0.2 and somehow, the desktop got on the beta channel (which I have since changed) and is running V 70.0b12. I copied the working userChrome.css file from the laptop to PC, but it just isn't getting read. Anything else that needs to be changed? I hate tabs on top!

As you can see I used User Chrome to change the view from icons to text. I simply prefer text. That said, after the recent Firefox update, as per my screenshot, this is what my view of the search engine menu looks like. Speaks for itself. I don't have much more to add. The menu seems compressed and not all my search engines are showing, moreover, the search engine settings are more or less overlayed over what search engines do show, however, they are unusable, if I click on them it merely does a search using whatever engine lies beneath it.

Sorry for the fuss.

Thank you.

I am so angry with Firefox/Mozilla. I want my toolbars in the following order (top to bottom): Menu Bar Location/URL Bar Bookmarks Toolbar Tabs Bar

You keep moving the TABs to the top, and I can find no way to move it back below the Bookmarks toolbar. I also have to request viewing the Menu bar which is not visible by default. Why do you make it so difficult for us? Should I look for a different browser? The only ones I have every had are Netscape and Firefox. I tried Chrome, but do not like it. Firefox used to be good, but it as become less responsive to the end-user. I see an opportunity for yet another browser company.

I want to remove ALL the passwords in firefox lockwise. No answers here. This is the worse software design I have ever seen from firefox. The old versions allowed you to delete ALL passwords with one simple click, it looks like the only way I can get passwords removed in firefox lockwise is do so individually. Who was the mental defect that designed firefox lockwise without providing a ONE CLICK way to remove all passwords?

So I've been using Firefox for quite a while now, both at home at work and on my phone. I've never had any issues with anything. I've had the same 3 extensions running since the installation of Firefox(Momentum tabs, Popup blocker and uBlock Origin)

But recently, Firefox has been uploading insane amount of data to the point where it just does not make sense. I'm adding two images, 1st shows my trend over the last 4 months while the 2nd shows how much data Firefox has been sending while being on (with a reset) for about 4h.

It became an issue because i usually do not close my computer and leave Firefox open with the tabs open (on average 5) and it was consuming all that data while i was at work While a "fix" could be well, close your Firefox, if this keeps up I'll just switch browser.

As far as what tabs are kept open a few Stock images website, GogoAnime, and usually my e-mails or work where i've left it off. No streaming website is left opened

I've got no active VPN connections, I've got complete control of my network and am beyond 100% certain that the issue comes from firefox, no other IP are on my network and lastly disabling all of my extensions has not changed the behavior of Firefox. My Firefox is up to date, (70.0.1) so everything else on my computer, from windows, gpu to all other drivers

Any help would be appreciated, otherwise i'll just change browser. (tried leaving on Chrome and it hardly uploads anything whatsoever)

I use Windows, Mac, and various flavors of Linux. A Firefox account should keep bookmarks the same across platforms, but occasionally-to-frequently the episode described above occurs, and bookmarks fall like a rainstorm in the sidebar, unorganized and in a quantity that is distressing, since now I have to start deleting again, because once it happens in, say, Windows, it gets carried to every instance elsewhere. It's like the ghosts of every bookmark I ever had comes back to haunt in multiples scattered all over the place. Is there a way to glue this stuff down so it doesn't happen again? I'm at a loss.

I've got a couple addons, that clear browsing data.

Clear Browsing Data https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clear-browsing-data/

Clear Cookies and Storage Button https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clear-storage-button/

I want to set up one to just clear cache, and the other to do a more extensive cleaning job, but what exactly happens when we clear cache? I ask because both these addons have multiple data clearing options, and I'm confused about a couple of them.

Does the option "Clear images and files" complete the definition of clearing cache, or does clearing cache also include "Local Storage Data"? Or is something else also included?

I'd also like some advice on "Service Workers" and what are the results of clearing this type of data.

I saw another post about this, and someone linked an article in the comments, but it didn't actually tell me what it was. When I go to settings it says that my browser is being managed by my enterprise, and when I go to enterprise policies it lists "ImportEnterpriseRoots" as true. Is this just a part of Firefox, or should I be concerned? And if it is a part of Firefox what does it actually mean?

4. I enter my card number and PIN, then press the Authenticate button

5. I'm taken to to a page that says "Your login was successful." I then press the "Continue ➡️"

6. I'm taken to https://www.oed.com/ where i can now happily use the dictionary
