Firefox applied an update and now there is a puzzle piece icon on my toolbar for extensions at the top right. I have tried to edit my toolbar but that icon can't be moved, removed, or hidden and it's where my bookmarks icon usually is which is messing with my work flow a lot. I work very fast and have years of muscle memory of clicking the first icon at the top right to open bookmarks and now I keep opening extensions.

I d/l Total AV and added Total WebShield & Total Adblock as extensions to my browser. Now when I open Firefox, it won't open in full screen. If I disable the WebShield, it opens full screen. Are there compatibility issues? Can you advise on how to fix it? It's very annoying.

disable pop=up sign-in with google prompt LAPTOP WINDOWS 11 FIREFOX 105.0.3 64-BIT 1. Over the last few days I have been getting a sign in with Google prompt on most websites I visit. Please refer to the photos. This looks identical to the Google generated promt, however in my Google account settings I have this option turned off. Is this a Google bug or a Firefox thing? With all the other annoying popups these days, this is just another irritation frustration to view a website.

I USE DEV TOOLS from FIREFOX TOOLS TO FIGURE OUT IF IT'S FIREFOX OR GOOGLE CAUSING ISSUE. HERE IS ONE OF 50 LINES RELATING TO GOOGLE/TWITTER/FIREFOX CONVERGENCE

(ALSO, I USE UBLOCK & LASTPASS)

LINE FROM DEVELOPER CONSOLE WHEN I OPEN TAB TO TWITTER LOG-ON PAGE:

20:36:03.881 Google Analytics and Tag Manager is being shimmed by Firefox. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1713687 for details. sandbox eval code:1:9

I DON'T WANT TO CLOSE THIS POP-UP BUTTON EVERYTIME I GO TO LOG IN AT TWITTER, IT'S NEW. I HATE IT. HAVE DELETED TONS OF UNKNOWN FILES IN MY USER FOLDERS TODAY, NOTHING HELPED (LOCAL/GOOG FOLDER & TEMP FOLDERS). MAYBE I NEED TO RESET SOMETHING IN CONFIG OR A REGEDIT SETTING FOR FIREFOX. I'LL DO ANYTHING. Thanks!

I am using a Windows computer. Is there a way to change the two finger swipe to go back (or forward) a webpage to a "THREE" finger swipe? Two finger swipes interfere with other things that I may be trying to do on a webpage. I often find myself scrolling through tables (using two finger scrolling) and then if I scroll too far in one direction it goes BACK to the last webpage I was on. This is super frustrating!

I know how to disable the two finger swipe using about:config. However, if it can be changed to a 3 finger swipe instead, that would be a huge help.

I notice that I sometimes have as much as 14 Firefox processes running at the same time, even though I only have one tab open.

E.g. just starting up produces 9 processes, consuming some 43% of memory! I see no way to limit the number of process in Settings->Performance (ALL "solutions" to this problem involve changing the "Content process limit", but that seems to have gone in the latest Firefox version?) What do I do?

I installed Evernote Webclipper on Firefox on my Macbook Air, but the icon/tool does not display so is not usable. I used the "customize toolbar" info to drag the extension icon to the toolbar. Clicking on that put me back on the add-ons page, did not open the extension. I restarted, restored defaults, removed and re-installed Evernote still no go. VERY frustrated. Any ideas from anyone welcome. Thanks.

I use the built in PDF viewer to open PDF Files. It has the function to add text. However I oftentimes forget to save the PDF after adding text. In other Programs (such as Microsoft Word, Notepad etc.) it prevents the shutdown on Windows when I have unsaved changes by showing a window which apps prevent a shotdown. Is it possible to achieve the same when forgetting to save changes made to pdf's in firefox? Or is there even a way to autosave PDFs after changing them?
