Refer to the attached image ... I've looked thru history, bookmark manager, all the settings, and so on and this site cannot be removed from the URL suggestions! Your documentation suggested clicking a button on the far right, but it's non-existent. You also suggested to scroll down to highlight/select the URL and SHIFT+DEL, but that does nothing. I've been trying to get rid of this obsolete website link for over a year and it's an absolute mystery where the link is coming from and bugs me.

Clicking on a link in a Thunderbird email does not cause Firefox (the default browser) to open that link. If either Chrome or Brave is set as the default browser, they will correctly open the link. Obviously, the problem is with Firefox, not with Thunderbird. I raised this issue several years ago and have never received a response. I have drastically reduced my use of Firefox accordingly. I am primarily a Linux user (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, gnome shell 3.36).

I just got a new computer and had my info transferred. It is probably the latest version of Firefox on the new computer now. On the previous version it seems like Favorites was spelled out toward the top of the page on the left hand side. I see now it is just a star icon. Is there any way to get it the way it used to be? I'm sure I will get used to it the new way, but I still liked it the other way. Thanks

I'm having a pretty frustrating developer experience using Firefox to help develop an app that uses Server Sent Events. Now, I'm not sure if I'm the one at fault or if it's something to do with Firefox itself (most likely I'm missing a config option somewhere).

Anways, the issue I'm having is that I cannot seem to be able to see Server Sent Events in the network tab of dev tools. This is specifically what I'm looking for: https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/devtools-user/network_monitor/inspecting_server-sent_events/index.html

I'm testing this functionality by going to https://sse.dev/testpage.html, opening my network tab. I can see the connection to the SSE endpoint however, all I see is "No headers for this request" or "No response data for this request". I know it's getting the data through the event source because I can do stuff with the data. I've also tested this in Edge and everything appears in their network tab as expected which, makes me feel like this is more of a browser-specific issue. Again, I feel like it's me missing a config somewhere or having a privacy setting set which is somehow messing with the event stream.

Any help is appreciated... I guess I got to use Edge for the time being 🤮

All the menu text colors on all sites suddenly changed from black to all sorts of random colors. On Amazon, for instance, the menu text changed to a shadowed blue which is impossible to read: see attached image. Similarly, duckduckgo changed to a rainbow of colors and no amount of customization on its settings changes the colors back to black. In order to make the Amazon menus legible I had go to color setting on Firefox and change them to always use the system settings. This eliminated the shadowing, but the text remains blue, even though I changed everything to black. Changing themes to dark or installing new themes changes Firefox but makes no difference to any site like Amazon.

I did try running the browser in safe mode and it changed the menu text color back to black, but returning to normal mode produces the same errors. Not even restoring my PC to an earlier saved session made any difference.

What is going on??

About 1 week ago Firefox with Windows 11 stopped displaying YouTube video comments. I've tried other browsers and I can see the comments.

I only have 6 extensions and have disabled all of them and still have the problem. With Firefox in safe mode the problem goes away and I can see the comments. I've cleared the Firefox cache and hardware acceleration is off. I have the standard themes and using the default system theme-auto.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Thank you.

I cannot remove "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" and seems to be stopping the home settings saving. They simply revert back to the default (see image) when I restart Firefox. Not sure what is meant by "your organisation" as I am a personal user, not organisation. I'm the single user of the browser (e.g. just one user on my PC, which is me) and also Admisitrator. Can someone help me remove this. Thanks John

I've disabled this for my google account. So when I search from google.com this behavior doesn't happen. But when I type anything into my address bar on Firefox to search, the first suggestions are from my search history.

I don't want to delete my search history.

I often use my search history to find specific things that I need, but didn't bookmark at the time. I need my search history to be saved. I just don't want to automatically receive suggestions based on it.

Is there any way to turn this off? Even with an extension or something?

A few weeks ago I saw an Mozilla ad for a new Mozilla software product that cleaned up your PC and made it run better. The price was around $125.00 (I don't remember that exact price). It said that I would receive an email from Mozilla with download instructions. it's been a few weeks and I have not gotten any email. Does anyone know if Mozilla offers any such software or did I get scammed? I'm pretty good about seeing scams but Ive used Firefox and Mozilla for years and trust them. Maybe that's why I wasn't as careful as I should have been.

Thanks for any help that you can provide. Ron

I discovered two issues with Firefox on my Wayland Gnome. Picture-in-picture windows should be opened with the "always on top" attribute, but in Wayland they are not on top. It's not a big deal to manually set always-on-top. Although I need to remember to do this after the window appears. The second problem is related to selecting multiple tabs. I should be able to detach selected tabs from the window by dragging them from the tab bar. A new window is then created with the selected tabs. This doesn't work in my Wayland. I can detach one tab, but not multiple tabs at once. I can still move multiple tabs from one window to another open window. So, as a workaround, on Wayland I need to open a new window and then move the selected tabs there. Which is inconvenient. I am curious if anyone else noticed these things on Wayland. There might be something wrong with my instance of Wayland.

Hi, All my tabs and many pages are appearing in an unreadable nonsense font. This page is ok, except for the tab and url; others, such as the settings page, are entirely garbled. When I copy a snippet of this and paste elsewhere, it shows up as English; so it is a display issue, not a new language.

This started on booting the machine today, after some OS upgrades yesterday. (to OS 13.1). I've tried restarting FireFox.

I can't read the settings page well enough to change much there. But this seems like a different issue anyhow. Help please!

thanks Sarah
