Firefox keeps saying it cannot continue to create a firefox account because cookies are disabled. I check my cookies setting and cookies setting is standard. Firefox will not create an account because it keeps saying cookies are disable when they are not disabled. I have had to do this using Chrome.

When I check my History sidebar a load of sites are not shown under Today (Date and Site), and only Today is shown, there is no 7 day option and I would want more than 7 days shown anyway. By Most Visited show a lot more sites.

I also noticed that when I download something and instal the file or whatever, that file then disappears when I Show all Downloads. But if I go to Windows(C)\Users\Mike\Downloads there are a whole load of downloaded files.

What is happening here? Thanks.

I have four Wordpress blogs that I visit. Wordpress has a black bar at the top of the screen that you can click on and it'll bring you back to the top of the page. I am running FF 38.0.5, and on one of these blogs this feature stopped working. I ran in safe mode and the feature worked correctly. When I unistalled each add on one by one to figure out which one it might be, the problem still persists. How can this be??

I have just installed Quantum, and would like to move the tabs back beneath the bookmarks toolbar, as I think this is a much more logical location for them. Is it possible to do this, and if so, how? I'm using Windows 8.1/ 64 bit, if that matters.

My Tabs toolbar used to be under my Links toolbar. It is now above the Address toolbar.

How do I put my Tabs toolbar back where I want it (not where Firefox arbitrarily decided to put it)?

Alternately, How do I go back to FireFox 70.0.1?

System: Windows 8.1, 64-bit

              FireFox 71, 64-bit 

Note: My laptop (Windows 8.1, 64-bit) has Firefox 70.0.1 (but wants me to "update" (sic)). It has the tool bars in my preferred order. I'm not about to "update" until I know how to fix FireFox 71.

How to move address bar (navigation bar) to title bar in Firefox 29?

What I'm trying to achieve is to have only one bar visible in Firefox. New Firefox interface is a waste of vertical screen space for me in its default configuration. Up to Firefox 28 I could drag and drop everything to title bar with additional adjustments in userChrome.css.

I tried to use https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/ but it didn't work for me. I don't want older theme anyway, I just want the same amount of customization available.

I think this is really a feature request, but I didn't see a forum for that. I used to use firefox almost exclusively, but switched to chrome when I started freelancing for a couple of different companies -- the identities feature of chrome really helps me keep my sanity by having a unique identity for each company. However, an issue has recently developed with chrome that made me switch back to firefox. The profiles feature in firefox seems to have gotten a lot better since I made the first switch, and I'm pretty happy with how it works ... with one exception:

With firefox, clicking on a link in a different application always opens in the default profile. With Chrome, it would always open in the browser window that was most recently active. This is a very intuitive behavior, as whatever I am doing in the other application (e.g. thunderbird, evernote, skype) is almost always related to whichever browser window I had opened last.

Any chance of this getting implemented? Or maybe there's already a way to do this? I found the following related topics, but neither helped with this question:

I keep resetting Firefox (latest version) to open at a blank page, but it continues to open at the default Home Page. That home page has an unwanted Firefox logo in the middle, with a search bar underneath. I don't want to see any of that when I open Firefox, but can't seem to get rid of it. There is nothing in Extensions or Plug-Ins that could cause this.

I just recently got a new laptop, and since the minute I've installed firefox on it there has been lag when scrolling webpages. It seems to start off not too badly, with there being some stuttering when I first open firefox, however it seems like the longer I'm browsing the worse it gets, to the point where sometimes I'll start scrolling and then a second later firefox will just jump to the bottom of the page. Internet Explorer and Chrome both have perfectly smooth scrolling.

I've tried numerous things to fix it already, this is some of the stuff I can remember trying: -Turning off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling -Starting in safe mode -Complete reinstall with new profile -Updating graphics card and intel drivers

Specs of the new laptop: Core i7 GTX 970M 16Gb RAM

Hi,

Each time I start Firefox I get a warning pop-up from malwarebytes advising me of an outbound request from Firefox to a malicious site "bestwaytosearch.com". I have checked the home page settings and reset it, checked the search engines along with add-in and extensions. I have also cleared the history and browsing cache but just can not get rid of it.

Yes I can exclude it but that would only mask the problem.

Regards Ian
