Since a few days now my URL bar is too small. I can see where it used to be in light gray, but the text box is just a small part of it. I searched everywhere but I can not find anything to fix it. I even tried to reset the settings to default but it is still the same. Any idea what I can do?

Here is a screenshot of how it looks like when I click into the text box: (see attached)

I can't connect to Amazon.com. I keep getting the following error message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.amazon.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

I think this is a problem with Firefox. Any suggestions or should I switch to a new web browser?

I appreciate any suggestions.

The latest Firefox update has made it impossible for me to log into https://www.discover.com/ I consistently receive the following error message: "Your account cannot currently be accessed. Outdated browsers can expose your computer to security risks. To get the best experience on Discover.com, you may need to update your browser to the latest version and try again. For questions, please contact us at 1-800-347-7769. We're always available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

Pop up blocker in the address bar has been manually turned off and antivirus VPN has been manually turned off. Discover has told me the problem is with the browser not their website. I can access the account via one of the less secure browsers (edge) but am not comfortable with that company and would prefer this glitch being fixed if possible. Firefox info is version 128.0 and it automatically updated earlier this week. Thank you. Enjoy your weekend. Laurie

HI,

Half the time when I go to a website like Google Flights or something to do with Google it just automatically brings me to my employer's website like to sign in and use the Google tools there. I don't even work for them anymore and I don't know how to get rid of it automatically wanting me to go there. It won't even let me use Google Flights because it says it not supported by my employer. Thanks.

Please advise how to disable automatic updates on Firefox running on Linux Kubuntu. Solutions posted on mozilla.org do not work because stated disable options are not available(see screenshot). I have set app.auto.update to false in about:config but this does not disable updates. I have been repeatedly advised not to disable updates so I am aware of the so called risk. I am very tired of every update breaking a reliable browser and having to repair/fix/workaround each and every time. Please provide a viable solution.

I started using Chrome/Brave in order to be able to use profiles because I did not find that feature in Firefox. I really try to get away from google, so I searched extensively and found out: profiles do indeed exist as a feature in Firefox. My question now is: why are there no buttons or easily accessible settings (for example in connection with sync-settings) for using profiles and why does one need to type in strange things in the address bar to access the feature and even to start another instance of firefox with another profile?

My use case is this: I have a private profile, one for my job and one for union stuff which I don't want to mix into my job profile. Yet, on my home computer I'd like to have all three profiles running simultaneously. Sometimes one or more profiled windows have been closed down and I need to open a new window with a specific profile. I understand that I need to open a tab, type "about:profiles" and then scroll through a page with large amounts of techy information on all profiles and press the last one of four buttons under that profile.

I'm quite tech-savvy and typing "about:profiles" is doable for me, but it seems absurd, given that the feature is not sci-fi and is well visually accessible in other browsers (Chrome and Brave: rightclick on profilesymbol and choose from simple list).

I have used Firefox as my preferred web browser for years. Following an update a couple of weeks ago, Firefox no longer starts. Instead I get the following error message:

XUL Runner Error: Platform version '127.0.2 is not compatible with minVersion>=127.0.1 maxVersion<=127.0.1

My OS is Windows 10.

I would be most grateful for any advice on how to regain access to Firefox.
