Until I updated the browser this morning I would normally:

    Click the icon on the left of the address bar (where the URL is shown).
    While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button. The       shortcut will be created.

This no longer works. Any suggestions. Using Windows 7.

Since the "add on" issue with FireFox Moxilla a few weeks back, the "save" buttons (both in the browser, which is an add on; and on their website, which is not any type of browser add-on or extension) stopped appearing. All of the pinterest emails are not clickable to save a pin. Website auto "pin this" buttons are not working. An update didn't work. Clearing cookies, cache, temp history, etc. didn't work. This happened specifically after the issues Moxilla had with firefox add-ons/extensions which was fixed so quickly most people didn't even know it happened. When I visit Pinterest.com the page loads the header, but the rest of the page is blank. This happens on every synced FireFox device except android. Likewise on a computer-based Moxilla FireFox browser, pinterest emails do not have any "save" buttons. So you can receive the email, click through to an item of interest, but you cannot save it. This is something very odd.

I've tried most of the Netflix (website's) suggestions to troubleshoot why videos won't play with Firefox; none could fixed the issue. The only suggestion I did not try is to disable Private browsing mode simply because I don't know how to do it and Firefox Support does not specifically address this task. I've also tried the suggestions provided by various forum responders to this issue ... again, no fix! Can someone please provide specific instructions on how to disable Private browsing?

I'm tired of switching from FF to IE every time I want to watch a movie.

This is a difficult question to search for answers to, because the word "tab" is more often used to refer to browser tabs. I'm using it to refer to the TAB key -- used not to move through browser tabs, but to move through tools in the Firefox window.

I have frequently used the TAB key to move from the URL field to the Search field. Previously, this required using the TAB key only once, but with the latest upgrade (67.0), one TAB from the URL field goes to one of the other tools that I have between URL and Search fields. But I have no need to TAB to those tools. Is there any way, short of moving those fields around, to change the tabbing order so that I can go back to only needing to hit the TAB key once?

I had this problem for a bit now and most sites work but some DO NOT render the CSS properly. At first I though it was a Firefox problem, but it turns out when I use IE I have the same results on some sites.

This is on my main computer with Win7 Ultimate. On my slow old netbook running Win7 Ultimate, everything works fine.

FYI I have cleared, deleted, scanned everything. Safe mode, same thing. What in underlying system is running CSS rendering?

Any help appreciated.

There are several pinned tabs when I open my Firefox.

The problem is when there is no Internet connection, these tabs are displayed as requiring network connection. However when the network is connected, these tabs are not automatically updated - they still displayed as requiring network connection. I have to refresh each one of them.

Is that my configuration has problem, or the automatically refresh tab function is missing?

I cannot see the maximize, minimize, or close buttons with Firefox Quantum. It makes it very annoying to manipulate windows so I'm tending to go back to using Chrome even though I prefer Firefox. I've tried to correct this though Options and Customize but there seems to be no solution there.

Hi Team,

I have just installed Linux Mint 19 alongside Windows 7, and installed Linux Firefox 67. Windows also has 67. I pointed the Linux Firefox to the Windows Profile file, and it looked exactly like the Windows version. When I went to access websites that have stored login names and password, the Login names were there, but the passwords did not show. When I entered a password again, and asked it to Save, it proceeded and logged in. When I logged off, and tried to login again, the Login name was there, but no password - had to enter it again. I have looked through all of the relevant posts in Support, and tried several options, but none work. Would appreciate some assistance is solving this one please. Thanks plml

After updating to Version 67 it took 2 minutes for the Mozilla starting-page to open. So I deleted Firefox and reloaded it without success. I deleted the add-ons, the Cookies, Caches to no success. Finally I found that my profile could be the reason and I deleted the whole Firefox-Folder completely to start from anew. When I download the new Version comes "either you have no profile or the use is denied" and everything stops. If someone starts the first time with Firefox he would not have a profile either. So how can I get back using Firefox as my browser again?

Thanks for your tips and help in Advance.

I am used to having 30+ tabs open in Firefox. When I close and then reopen Firefox, they're all there.

Until yesterday. Now only a half-dozen or so appear. I THINK they're the first half-dozen from my previous session.

Also, I can't find a way to restore the previous session. That option is not in my Menu. My History has lots of previously used tabs, but I can't find the ones I want ... especially the ones I haven't actually used for some time.

I recently bought a new PC which forced me to "upgrade" from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I don't think that's the problem, though. Firefox installed fine and worked fine on the new computer until I powered down a couple of days ago -- then powered back up and restarted Firefox....

I'm not aware of having upgraded to a new Firefox, unless that happened automatically.

I saw a Q&A from Martha that seemed relevant. But she uses a Mac, and I'm on a PC. Also, I didn't understand and couldn't begin to follow the recommendations she was given. I'm a 75-year-old IT ignoramus. I really need very simple step-by-step instructions ... or somebody to take over my computer and solve the problem for me ... or I guess I could wait till one of my grandchildren knows how to help....

In a nutshell, I have two problems: 1. Firefox is no longer restoring all my tabs when I reopen it. 2. I can't find "Restore previous session" to restore my tabs manually.

Thanks!

Any help would be appreciated.
