Hey all, I'm not too sure if this is the right place to ask, since i am on the nightly version, however recently i have tried installing some new extensions. it appears that whenever i close and re- open firefox, the extension is just gone and disabled. when i go back to the store, i have the option to remove it as if its still installed, and my "manage extensions" page shows its installed and enabled, however there is absoloutley no sign of the extension unless i disable and enable it. the two extensions i have installed were both from the official mozilla addons store, one being "dark reader (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/darkreader/) and "Twitter as a Sidebar" (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/twitter-as-a-sidebar/). both of these extensions have the same issue, so its most likely not the extension itself. I am asking here in case its not a nightly bug, and instead something wrong with my browser specifically.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When I am typing in a search request in google, the type disappears frequently and I cannot even correct it because the whole line disappears. I thought this was happening when I misspelled a word but it seems to happen in other situations also. This is very annoying.

I am using Firefox 114.0.2 address bar only, no search bar. I do not remember when it was happened, but today when I want to copy and paste page address I found out that address bar did not display the page address as previous version, just display the words I searched as a search bar (if the search bar is enabled, and typed in search bar then push enter, address bar will display address of search result page, and search bar will keep displaying the words in it). I attached my screenshot below. Using another tab and "switch to tab" feature by Firefox, I found out the page address. In my screenshot, I typed "test" and using Google to search (I also tried Bing, Wikipedia and more and all of them have the same problem with their owned link) and the page address should be "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=test" but even I paste this link into the address bar, it will only display "test" like the pic. I think it is a trim feature but I do not which preference I should edit in about:config. I have set "browser.urlbar.trimURLs" to false for displaying http and www, but it is not work this time.

Hi there,

can anybody pls help?

Firefox crashes right after start. Haven't used the computer for couple of days. When I started firefox yesterday all tabs were gone and firefox only shows one tab with a weird page trying to sell me sth. I have Tab session Manager but all sessions were gone - nothing to choose from to restore. So I copied and pasted an older session in the session folder as the new current session. Worked fine. Starting the computer today the situation is worse: again all tabs gone and as soon it starts firefox only shows me one homepage and two seconds later it crashes... Tried updating my windows security, searched for viruses, installed cccleaner, installed latest version of firefox again - nothing helped.

What else can I try?

Recently the V-like icon/button appeared at the right-hand end of the top line of my Firefox windows. This Tab Search could be invaluable to some, but I have no need for it. If I start to get too many tabs I just use another window. However, I click on it constantly when I intend to minimize the window. I have been clicking on the - icon/button in EVERY WINDOWS APPLICATION since Windows began, and as it has ALWAYS been the LEFT-MOST item in the UPPER RIGHT CORNER I haven't had to think about it in decades. But now it isn't the left-most, that is now tab search.

Please, please, PLEASE provide a configuration option to remove Tab Search from the top line.

Thanks!

For over a week now I am receiving a popup from 'The Spruce' with the popup header being Mozilla Firefox (see Spruce.jpg). The popup has a facility to disable notifications from www.thespruce.com and I have selected this many times yet the popups keep coming several times a day. (see Spruce2.jpg). I have also visited the Spruce website and there is no unsubscribe link. I didn't subscribe in the first place and had never heard of The Spruce before this. Why is Firefox facilitating this spam that won't be disabled?

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome. I imported all the bookmarks and passwords from Chrome into Firefox on Windows.

Next, I installed it on Linux and later on Android. The sync is not working properly that is what I noticed. Basically I have all the data on my Windows PC Firefox. It is not syncing between other devices, that will be my notebook running Linux and my Android Phone.

I read other similar question son the forum and did a Google search as well. I already did re-install a few times to no avail.

Here is the log from "about:sync-log" : https://paste.ee/p/5e57H

How do I fix this?

So, I've had this problem since last 3 months. I'm using Firefox with auto-update turned on. Right now my version is 110.0.

Every now and then Firefox stops to load any websites and after closing it and opening it again it won't open correctly saying that my profile was created using newer version of Firefox and I need to create new one. At some point I was on default-release-9 until I asked about it on Reddit and got a reply guiding me to check compatibility.ini in my profile directory and fair enough, when this happens, compatibility.ini indicates Firefox version 119 so Firefox is right thinking that values don't match.

But the definitive question is how do I stop Firefox from messing around with that file? I'm honestly tired of manually editing it every time Firefox stops working. I know that website loading problems can stem from my excessive uptimes but this is an issue I can work around by restarting Firefox from time to time.
