I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

Hi! I set up a master password maybe two-three days before. Today as I opened my laptop and firefox, I discovered that I have totally forgot my master password within these few days! I had to use the reset option, losing all the past data, as the warning said. However, just after this such a pathetic task, I remembered that I have the master password! I had three years of log in and bookmark info stored in the firefox! now that i can't even log in my firefox account i am losing them all! Please please help me! Can i have my old login info back? I can provide the master password if needed! It was an act of haste.

I have given up with Firefox Developer Edition for now after 4 days of not working and then one day of working it went back to not working. It has now been a week of it not be able to start, it continues to say suspended in Task Manager and then just dies with no Firefox crash report.

So have gone to using Chrome for the time being, I will wait for the next release and see if that fixes the issue.

Hello,

I have been having weird problems with my Firefox since I tried getting back to using it. I have reset everything before using it again. I changed the language back to English but the hamburger icon list is in Japanese. A minor issue but I can manage.

But this one is really annoying. I click on a link and it closes it down for me in 1 second. Here's a short clip of what I'm referring to.

Please help me solve my problem. I just want to download files from my email.

Windows10でFireFoxを使用しています。

EXCEL ONLINEでセルの編集をすると、3つの編集時の問題が発生します。

これは、FireFoxで発生しますが、Edge/Chromeでは正常です。

1.[全角/半角]キーを押すと、セルの内容が消える。 2.カーソルが点滅していない状態で日本語入力すると、文字化けする。(1文字目にアルファベットが残る) 3.範囲指定して[DEL]キーで消去すると、最初のセル以外は消去出来ない。

私は、EXCEL ONLINEとFireFoxのどちらの不具合なのか、判断出来ません。

上手に、自動翻訳出来ていると期待します。

WebGL creation fails on Firefox.

Firefox is having issues with WebGl on my Ubuntu 20.04 and therefore fails on several HTML5 pages (eg. https://www.wirple.com/bmark/). This issue is not present in other browsers so I chalk it up as an issue with firefox rather than my driver.

I am using NVIDIA driver 455, which works best on my machine by all benchmarks.

Here is the snapshot of my about:support page relevant sections:

  • WebGL 1 Driver WSI Info -
  • WebGL 1 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed: * WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false restricts context creation on this system. * Exhausted GL driver options.
  • WebGL 1 Driver Version -
  • WebGL 1 Driver Extensions -
  • WebGL 1 Extensions -
  • WebGL 2 Driver WSI Info -
  • WebGL 2 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed: * AllowWebgl2:false restricts context creation on this system.

GPU #1 Active Yes Description GeForce 940M/PCIe/SSE2 Vendor ID 0x10de Device ID GeForce 940M/PCIe/SSE2 Driver Vendor nvidia/unknown Driver Version 455.45.1.0 RAM 0


I am also unable to find " AllowWebgl2:false" and "WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false" in my about:preferences.

Below is the console output when this error happens on an HTML5 game (works perfectly on other browsers)
