The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

opening menu=folders on bookmark toolbar opens the menu far far away on another display on Linux/Ubuntu 18.04/Gnome

I'm using FF 77.0.1 (64-bit) [Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical- 1.0, but the problem has been present for the last 2-3 months over those versions current. When I open a folder on my bookmarks toolbar, the menu pops up on another display. If I just move my mouse down, as if the menu were immediately below the folder link, the corresponding rows on the menu on the other display are highlighted. However, clicking at that point does not select that menu entry. I must move my mouse over to where the menu is displayed, all the way being careful to not move outside of the Y dimension range of that menu (or it vanishes). This does not happen on all folders on the menu, but the ones it happens on vary from day to day. Prior to the version of FF that I am on, it would only happen once to a given menu and then it would start opening the menu where it should. I currently have 15 folders showing on the toolbar and 5 of them consistently misbehave.

I'm on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 using the Gnome desktop/window manager (not Wayland). I am using a Dell Laptop XPS-13, connected to a Dell DisplayPort dock which drives two external displays, on which I usually do all my work. If I drop back to just the laptop, all the folder menus display properly. In addition, with the dock connected and the two external displays, if I move the FF window to the laptop's display, the menus display properly. However, in my use of multiple applications, no application besides FF exhibits this problem. If I open a private session, the problem is not exhibited.

Adding a screenshot example. I had to crop it on the bottom side to fit in the 1024 Byte limit for attachments. On the bottom, you see a black area on the left, which is where there is no monitor. On the right is a portion of my laptop's display (cropped on the bottom). On the top are the two displays, and the portion just above the laptop display is my right display, and left is left.

How can I restore it with the latest version of Firefox, the previous fixes that were posted do not work any more.

Hello, I'd like to open url links clicked from any program in a private tab. Firefox is my default browser. Links open in new tab, which is okay. I browse in private mode all of the time, but clicking links opens in normal tab, then it cashes the content, cashes history etc. Most of the stuff (from for example discord) is a one time thing, silly and probably even useless stuff.

Is there a possible way to force windows10 to use "firefox.exe -private" as the default handler to open firefox ? I don't really mind if it opens a new window instead of new tab as long as it remains private.

Thank You for Your time.

"Fastly error: unknown domain: www.ebay.com. Please check that this domain has been added to a service. Details: cache-bos4642-BOS"

Why is Firefox blocking me from my eBay account this is the 3rd different error message in a month! The previous "408" error seems to have finally been fixed. At least it eventually allowed access, this one does not ever since last Sun. AM 6/7/2020 when Firefox loaded an update that knocked me off our virtual video Church service. I had to reboot computer and router to get working again. Have not been able to access eBay ever since. Is there a fix? Why do they keep doing this to us?

I am running Win 7, 64.

All help with this greatly appreciated, and I thank you, in advance.

Bob T., Lowell, MA, USA

UPDATE: Aug. 1, 2020:

None of the 2 respondents solutions below worked. No responses to my reply's to them ever received. As noted in my replies shortly after posting this problem Firefox installed an update, and many more since, after that update the problem has disappeared and I've not had it again. As Ithought it may well have been a software glitch.

I consider this matter resolved and closed.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

Hi,

I cannot find the way to remove the Adblock Plus extension for the life of me. It says "Can't be removed". I re-started in Safe-Mode, and it still cannot be removed. I did Firefox's "fresh re-install" thing, which is supposed to remove all extensions, and it's still there. Should I report the extension? Help.

Thanks

This morning I got onto my Mac to find that Firefox was not playing my streaming services (such as Hulu), so I restarted the browser to find that all of my tabs, bookmarks, and passwords were completely gone. I cannot recover them in anyway and this is extremely upsetting as most of it was for my grad school work. If anyone has anyway of helping or recovering this information, I would greatly appreciate any help!

I am using Firefox 77.0 and get flashing images that seem to occur randomly. One just appeared as I am typing this. It is quite annoying and, and for anyone susceptible to strobe lighting, may be dangerous.

Operating system is Fedora 32. I have also recently installed a Microsoft wired, laser mouse but I don't think this is causing the problem.

I have Gnome Tweaks installed and have noticed that the Windows Title bar items flash at the same time.

Hello Firefox community

I use Firefox as my primary browser on 5 devices - personal desktop, work laptop, spouse desktop, spouse laptop, and personal laptop. On only my personal laptop, I frequently encounter SSL cert errors warning me of invalid issuer. I don't encounter the same error on any other device (including also my phones). Is there some way I can force an update of the Firefox certificate repository? I assume these are being caused by out of date cert repositories or the like. The cert I get on the other devices is the same cert presented to this laptop; only the laptop issues the error.
