Changes in Firefox 23 - not for the better

I just got Firefox 23, and found there is no more Enable Javascript checkbox in the Content area of Preferences and there is no more ability to prevent changes to the functioning of the context menu and prevent the changing of the size or position of the window. I really do not understand why certain settings to control what may be done by web page code to the browser are being gutted out. Presumably it means that any smartass who can write a web page can force my browser window to be whatever size he wants it to be. That used to drive me crazy in the past, and it will do the same thing again. Is there any way to make a capability policy that could stop the resizing of the window? I just found out that I can still use the context menu if I use Shift-right-click. Why the change?

Autohiding the tab bar does not work any more. I thought the big argument for trying to put tabs on top and into the title bar was to save space? Forcing the tab bar to be visible all the time will certainly not save space, so why do it?

My bookmark menu was removed from the bookmarks toolbar. I tried to find a button that would put it back, and there are two bookmarks buttons in the customize window. Are the developers trying to make things harder, or what?

They are in the question. I was very pleased with the old download box, I have a mac so when I got the new update from firefox, I was very surprised to see I can't look through the old downloads and can't see the speed in which the current file is being downloaded, it doesn't make sense to cut those options off...

Very simple: how can I block GEOLOCATION in Firefox 29.0.1? Am using Snow Leopard 10.6. Mozilla Support :

                                       "In the URL bar, type about:config
                                                                 Type geo.enabled"

DOES NOT WORK; I tried several ways using above advice: 1) typed both on 2 lines. 2) typed both on one line Both 1) & 2) close and separately. WASTED MUCH TIME..

Hi, I have recently noticed I have an unwanted addon called gophoto.it.

I have tried to remove the addon but am so far having no luck.

When on the addons page in firefox there is no option to remove, just to disable. I have tried restarting in safemode to remove it but am still unable to.

I tried to remove it manually, I searched about:config and have come up with one result, I have tried to find this in the directory under extensions and the corresponding file doesnt show up.

The preference name for the file is: extensions.a2ea36bf108774aaa882cff78f7d9d95cdfb1672d116a4eb48be044786bd1d3ddcom34068.34068.internaldb.Resources_resource_175513.value

If anyone has any ideas I would be really greatful! Thanks.

Unable to view video from YouTube because there is a filter enabled. It happens on work and home networks and only on Firefox (15.0.1).

After updating to Firefox 15.0.1 and Adobe Flash Player to 11.4, I was unable to view media from YouTube. I was given a message: "This video is unavailable with the Education Filter enabled. To view this video, the site network administrator will need to add it to a playlist". I work for a school district and use my laptop at work so I figured I got that message because YouTube is blocked on that network. But, when I got home, I was given the same message on my home network with YouTube videos. I reset Firefox and it took care of the issue until I went to work and the problem happened all over again with the same message......I tried to view the same videos on a different browser (Safari) and it worked just fine. I'm afraid if I reset Firefox again, I will have the same issue.

how can I get the tabs back where they belong beneath the address bar , NOT on top ??? they are on top, which puts the address bar at a variable position depending on how many tab rows exist - makes a moving target for navigating to across my dual 24 inch screens I tried your "solution" using about:config and setting browser.tab.on.top or whatever to false, but that had NO effect Maybe because TabMixPlus is installed? It does allow putting the tabs all the way at the bottom, but I don't like that either. PLEASE, give me the address bar at TOP with tabs under that!!!

Also, I don't want FlashGot to be at the right of the address bar!!!

Every web page with video / audio content begins to autoplay (at the vid's highest volume) approximately 5 seconds after opening the page. I could disable this in Safari and Chromium, but see no option to disable the 'Autoplay' feature in Firefox. Worse, there are no plug-ins or extensions available that will allow this to be done. If you have had success disabling this annoying 'feature' (it's not a 'bug,' right?), please advise how it was done so that I may rid myself of these annoying vids. Thanks in advance.

This just started happening today and I'm not sure why. I've tried troubleshooting and nothing works. I even tried refreshing Firefox and safe mode. It still crashes and there is no crash report. I can open Youtube's main page just fine, but when I try to play a video it immediately crashes. I've tried playing around with disabling plugins and anything else I can think of, but nothing works.

How do I prompt Firefox to ask to save a password. Once I say "no" it never asks again (but now I would like it to remember the password for certain sites). I have also changed my password on some sites (while on another computer) and I cannot find out how to get Firefox to remember new passwords. I'm using Firefox 6.0.1 on a mac. I'm not using private browsing. I have 'remember passwords for sites' clicked and there are no exceptions. I've tried removing cookies, history, looking at page info.

Firefox adds account names when you log into different accounts. If you make a mistake then the mistakes will show up as well each and every time. I would like to edit the file to stop this. In the past I have deleted Firefox and re-installed it to fix this problem. I'm sure there's a better way than that.
