Hello all,

Although I have just updated Firefox to the last version hoping that the problem might be solved, after using the browser for a while and I google searching something, I get a blank page that does not load. Accessing other websites (bookmarked pages) might work sometimes though, but accessing the home page (google, google translate) just displays a blank page, no error message. I have started Mozilla in safe mode (troubleshooting mode) and the problem persists.

I have already deleted cookies, created a new profile, and reinstalled Mozilla and nothing seemed to work. The behavior is rather unpredictable and odd as I could not identify a pattern for the instances it happens. Exiting the browser and restarting it seems to solve the problem for the moment and then the behavior reoccurs. Also, sometimes after getting blank pages, taking a break or just using other browsers the problem is solved by itself temporarily. This does not happen when accessing Microsoft Edge.

Home page icon shows up on the toolbar, ONLY ON THE HOME PAGE. Yes, I have Firefox set up to show home page icon for a NEW tab/window, and this works fine. But when I use one of these windows to go to another url, the icon disappears. The purpose of a Home Page is something you can return to easily from any other url. Now, to get back to the Home Page, I HAVE TO CREATE another tab, and then close that previous tab (because I no longer need it).

This is a bug, on a Mac Air M1 laptop on OS11.3.1, running FF 91.3.0esr. It's also an annoyance.

TIA

Since 91.3esr update, over a period of a couple of days, if I open the Windows 10 hidden icons I will see a large number of FF icons that disappear immediately after I hover over them. Are these FireFox icons (see picture attached)? I also note that FireFox left untouched will be using 25% of my 32GB memory growing over a period of time. When first opened (I have restore previous sessions option selected), it is minimal memory usage.

Okay, hi- first time here. I have, as far as I know, all my preferences set correctly- clear history and cookies upon shutdown, etc yet EVERY time I reopen Firefox it's attempting to resume my last session which seems to me to be the opposite of how I have it configured so I was wondering what I also need to do to eliminate this privacy concern. Thanks in advance~

The Home page icon only appears in the tool bar of the page I've designated as the Home Page. As soon as I click a link on that page, the icon disappears. The only way I can get the home page back is the create a new tab/window. Earlier versions of Firefox on other machines in the house don't have this problem. Not acceptable.

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.

I was looking for a way to reset Firefox to bring back the previous print preview. In several places the person offering an answer suggests sending feedback to Mozilla re the changes, but... no link or place to send feedback.

My desktop and laptop have only just been updated to the latest version with very bright white backgrounds, really large firefox icon on home page, less definition between tabs, a lighter weight font on menus, strange layout on the hamburger menu, and a reset to a google-like print window.

I tried on my desktop to change the bright white background using the colors option. Once I found the settings to tone down the brightness to a very pale grey for the home page and results page, every page I went to had changed fonts and lost colors.

Print preview was an awesome tool, many web pages are set up in such a way that when it is printed the fonts are huge, and the web page header prints over the text of the printout. On the worst panels of links to other stories and ads also print. Your preview allowed me to zoom in/out easily and the simplified version was brilliant.

The tabs are grey on grey with no definite edge, and they just keep shrinking showing less and less of the tab name, instead of hiding extra tabs of the edges. I have 10-20 tabs open on a regular basis often in 2 separate windows and would much rather have a tab label that IDs the page than having to click on each page.

Font - the menu font is now a small fine sans serif that is difficult to read.

Hamburger menu - Why is new tab, find in page, save page as, and print here? In particular why are they at the top of the menu? Please move the new tab panel and print panel to the bottom, the Bookmarks panel to the top and put the Settings panel immediately below it. It would also help if you added a cog icon to the settings panel.

Please add a feedback link without sign-on to your page.

Is it possible to remove / hide individual elements inside the Library popup's #placesList (i.e. the Tag item and/or the icons of any of the items)?

My attempt with the code below inside userchrome removed ALL of the side panel content - not ideal.

#placesList > treechildren:nth-child(2) {
  display: none !important;

}

Also, is it actually possible for the Browser Toolbox to work inside popups?
