After using CCleaner, on opening FireFox I discovered an unwanted, 'other bookmarks' tab sitting on my toolbar. It won't move (click & drag), and I want rid of it. I like having the double right arrow at the edge of the toolbar like it use to be. When I did a full browser 'refresh', it disappeared!

However, on using CCleaner again, the darn thing reappeared.

How to I tell FireFox that I would like to be in charge of how it displayed, rather than some errant code that someone else thinks i want?

Hi, we are web-designer.

We have replaced the first 2 PDF in the page https://www.gazebo.it/documenti-certificazioni/:

https://www.gazebo.it/documenti-certificazioni/iso-9001-2015-web.pdf https://www.gazebo.it/documenti-certificazioni/iso-14001-2015-web.pdf

With firefox the preview still show the old version pdf, but if you download it, the version is correct.

The difference between two versions is in the first box bottom left: old one has only text, new one has a “Istituto Giordano” logo.

With Chrome, Safari, Opera, Edge, Explorer there are no issue.

Only firefox has this issue.

We tried to clear cache, browse in anonymous, modify PDF name... with no luck.

Thanks! Ste

Suddenly, when I try to login in to my bank website, I get that I have entered the wrong password, it sends me to a second login page and I have to re-enter the password to get in. The bank says there is a problem with too many cookies being saved but didn't know how to fix it in Firefox. I never had this problem before either with the bookmark or by typing in the address. This is the only site that I have this problem.

I tried to reinstall firefox downloading it with another browser, but the installation (I am now working with) seems to be somehow parallel, i.e. I don't have my profile and extensions, passwords, etc. And the look ist different.

Thanks in davance for any help.

Hi guys, I'm on Firefox QUantum 68.11.Oesr and I have a problem with my searches. NO matter what I do, it keeps taking me to Yahoo search which I hate but I can't figure out how to fix that. I've had that happen before and a buddy helped me fix it but I can't get hold of him.

Google is set in the options so that's not the problem. This is driving me nuts 'cause I search for stuff frequently and I hate Yahoo.

Thanks

I've been familiar with how FF works on Win7 for years. I know how and where its profiles and configs are stored and have reinstalled FF and recovered settings from the previous profiles.

I'm new to Windows10 64, don't really like it but it's embedded in an Intel nuc box. I have trusted file cleaner apps I use to clean unwanted temp files (except important FF profiles which are whitelisted from cleaning). On Win 7 I know roughly what the cleaner will find and remove.

I cleaned Win10 64 with the latest FF update installed (I don't think it's the update) and found over 1000 temporary files. The file path is Users\username\Appdata\local\Mozilla Firefox\Profiles\profile number\ default-release\cache2\entries. They are all small files and not the main default or custom profile I'm used to seeing. But they keep growing in number!

I know Win10 has account and file security protection which gets in the way and wthout changing ownership of this temp folder and sub folders, there is no admin user access.

Can anybody help me understand what I'm seeing. Are these FF profiles in cache2 temporary and not being deleted on exit due to Win10 file protection, or some other reason?

Thanks

Bulk web page Images Download via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - no longer works as it did in previous versions of Firefox. Now, when trying to download all images on a web page all at once via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - When clicking the Select All button a new window opens up but no images have been selected (highlighted in blue) so when Save As button is selected a new window opens asking which folder to save the images to and after selecting the folder nothing happens (no images are saved). This procedure for saving all images on a web page worked just fine in previous versions of Firefox, but now it no longer works. I don't know if this is a bug or coding error or if it has been done intentionally for some strange reason.

Trying to migrate Firefox profile from Win 7 machine to new Win 10. Downloaded Firefox to new machine, confirmed that it worked, closed it.Using Troubleshooting feature, located active profile in old Win 7 machine, copied to USB stick. Closed Firefox on new machine, navigated to Profiles folder, copied the Win 7 file to it and deleted the existing file. Tried to start Firefox, got 'Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible'. Fiddled round a bit, finally uninstalled Firefox from the new machine and downloaded it again. Got the same error message, now no Firefox at all after carefully following such instructions as I could find. What the f*ck am I doing wrong? A year or so ago I transferred the Win 7 profile successfully to a Win 10 laptop. What has gone wrong now? Any suggestions most welcome.

My Firefox 84 is now in an endless loop with updates.

It asked me to download an update from version 84.0.1.

After Firefox closes, installs updates, and restarts, it comes back asking me to update again.

The cycle continues and the updates never complete.

In the Help...About box, the button is still there "Restart to Update Firefox".

I'm using 32-bit Windows 7.

Images attached.

Please advise.

Thanks!
