Today I installed a new extension (Bitwarden) and want to add the icon to the toolbar. I can't find it anywhere. The add-on shows up in the add-on manager but there's nothing there to help me add the icon. The little puzzle piece in the upper right of the browser -- click on that and Bitwarden isn't listed.

How do I fix this? In Chrome there's a simple toggle switch in the extension manager to add the icon to the toolbar. Frankly, if I can't get this Bitwarden icon to display I can't use Firefox at all. Thanks.

I need to disable this horrible translator that is now showing up on top of every page I visit, It keeps showing up even after choosing a translation or disabling translations for that language. That is probably a bug, but I don't want to wait for a fix, I need to be able to see the pages I visit completely, this thing prevents me from clicking buttons and and is really anoying.

This is the built-in translation feature since I do not use any translation plugins, and started showing up after an upgrade.

YouTube Videos Lag Frequently: Video Pauses While Audio Continues Especially in Full Screen

I am running Firefox 121.0.1, which is currently up to date, on a slightly older MacBook, which has the latest MacOS it can get: macOS 11.6.8. As the title states, YouTube is almost unwatchable on my machine. The video will pause frequently while audio continues, motion is not very smooth, which is especially noticeable watching sports, etc. I cleared cookies and cache, I have run in Troubleshoot mode as well as tried flipping some switches in about:config that I've seen in YouTube videos and forum posts about similar issues, but nothing has solved this issue.

YouTube in Google Chrome works fine, and I've been watching HD YouTube on this laptop with it for years without any issues, so I doubt it has anything to do with machine specs like RAM, CPU, etc.

I was hoping to make Firefox my new browser and start supporting browsers that aren't chromium based since Google Chrome is going too far with respect to privacy and the freedom to use the add-ons I like (e.g. adblockers like ublock origin), but so far I have not been enjoying Firefox for YouTube. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, sometimes firefox seems like it is working fine, other times certain sites like youtube, duckduckgo and spotify will not load, while others will.

I've gone through and done everything the help articles suggest, nothing happens - then a few days later everything's fine. It's gone on like this for a few months. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks -alex

I have downloaded Firefox 117. I am currently on Firefox 102.15. So I want to transfer my bookmarks to the new version, as well as some recent history. I am unable to find these files to import when using Firefox 117. Also I says that version 102.15 is the most up to date version of Firefox. So this is confusing.

Hey!

For over a year some webpages show up blank in my Firefox browser. They all work fine in Inkognito/private windows.

I have tried emptying cache etc. Running Ventura 13.6.

One page recently stopped working and show: Application error: a client-side exception has occurred (see the browser console for more information).

www.pinterest.com is completely white.

Facebook.com shows up fine but does not work properly.

Any instructions on exactly what to do?

Mac Monterey 12.7.2, Firefox 12.0.1 , searching with DuckDuckGo - but it also happens when I search with Google.

I used to access RAI (Italian TV) no problem until I upgraded my op system to Ventura 13.6.4 two days ago. Now when I try to log in to RAI from Firefox (latest version) I get the following message from the RAI system "window.gigya is undefined" . Even though my credentials are correct, the RAI platform does not allow me to log in to my account. This is a Firefox issue and not a RAI issue. I know this because I can access my RAI account and see TV content no problem via SAFARI. Perhaps there is a setting in Firefox I need to change. At the moment I am using Firefox with the standard settings (no changes to settings since I reinstalled Firefox in my machine today)

Firefox has always maintained that current tabs will be restored after a reboot of the browser, and indeed that was the case for the first half-dozen years I've been a subscriber. That has not been the case for the past 4 - 6 months however. I have the correct Settings for this, so it is not on my end. Why do I always get a fresh Firefox browser whenever I update the version (which is quite regular lately . . . maybe a new version of Firefox every 3 weeks). Please help.

I'm not entirely sure what's happened, but I can describe it. My Macbook Air crashed for reasons unknown, and upon rebooting it, I attempted to open Firefox, but was met with the message "A copy of firefox is already open". I found some old guide on using Terminal to discover two different profiles for Firefox. After restarting my computer, I accessed my Firefox tabs from before, but now when I open links from my email account, they default to opening up a new Firefox window, one where it seems my bookmarks don't exist. How do I remove the second profile without losing my bookmarks?
