Recently (probably after an update) Firefox starts showing my list of downloads automatically and unwanted after each download. So I want to download a few MP3's from a website. I click on one, select the download option, and when it is done downloading a drop down display comes down from the Menu bar showing my last downloads. Obviously, as I download more, this list gets longer. I know I can make the list disappear by clicking anywhere on the screen, but it is an extra click to get rid of a feature I don't want. How do I turn that off?

Bookmarks and history not displaying in sidebar or library in Firefox (98.0.2 (64-bit) on Win11. I can see them when i save an individual bookmark (cntrl d) but not in the aforementioned areas. I have tried importing an earlier saved set from the library dropdown but they still are invisible. I also use "Bookmark search plus 2" add-on where I can still see all of my bookmarks.

Possibly this is a Google sites problem?

I has notebook ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 with i5-1135g7. First time I discovered problem in Firefox 95. I used win 10. HW decode stop working at all. I don't changed anything(no new version of driver have been installed, no browser update, bios and etc) hw decode just stop working in Firefox. Edge and video players still use hw decode. I tried to reinstall firefox with fully cleared(remove Mozilla folders from appdata and clear temp folder) but it don't solve the problem. Recently I hear that in firefox 100 av1 will be accelerated with hw decode. I decided to make clean install of win 11. And in clear system(no matter win 10 or win 11) firefox use hw decode. I was happy with it, but no long. When I turn ac charge off and tried to start youtube video it tried to start in 10-20 seconds and then plaing without hw decode. And It not changed back when I connect ac charge back and make reboot. And clear install of firefox also has no effect. I think it in the same state as it was before windows reinstall. It can be matter than I set windows settings for ac mode max performance and for battery mode max energy efficiency. Also I had klite codec pack installed but all work with it while I was on ac(and other programs continue work now).

I think hw decode very matter for notebooks battery lifetime. I sad that I had to use edge to watch youtube. I hasn't problems like this in my desktop pc with nvidia card(but it always in max performance mode).

At least I watching how to reset firefox hw decode state to find which is cause problems(windows energy saving settings, codec pack or something else). I not found any information about this.

The menu in selected websites do not show typical icons. I only see words and they are in large font; the words run over each other. (Please see attached screenshot for one website.) This issue renders functionality of the website inoperable. This issue happens to about 40-50% of the websites I interact with.

For the same website in Chrome, this issue does not occur.

How to fix this in Firefox? Thank you.

FF 98.0.2 - just updated. Top five lines of FF are TINY - using the ZOOM function only enlarges the body of the webpage, not the top five lines, FF logo, menu bar,’ Bookmarks Toolbar, etc. All previous suggestions have been to use Zoom control or to adjust size in about:config. That is ignoring the problem. Some answers claim the problem is in system settings. However, this is a brand new out of the box computer, when I use the Microsoft Edge installed on it, the corresponding lines of that browser are functional, not microscopic, so I KNOW MOZILLA CAN DO BETTER. PLEASE DO!!! I'm not the only person going blind and crazy trying to read the top five lines and getting bad suggestions (though thank you all for trying.) I have another computer running FF 93.0 and I'm not updating that one until the latest version is fixed. Please see two pix taken at 240% zoom, both screen resolutions the same, 1366x768. It is clearly seen that the test on ver 93.0 is larger than on 98.0.2. And just for giggles, a shot of MS Edge...look at the size of the top lines. (I've done a ton of troubleshooting in my career. Something's not right.)

I am unable to livestream video services from a monastery in the UK. I have clicked into the little shield at the left end of the web address bar in order to turn off the enhanced protection, but this does not have any effect, even though the website shows up as having had the protection disabled. I don't know whether I need to do anything in Firefox settings.

I was advised to use Google Chrome, and that browser does let me enter, but I prefer to stay with Firefox for all my browsing. I am an elderly person, and have to work harder than my children and grandchildren to keep up-to-date. If you could help me with some very clear instructions with the minumum of technical jargon I would be most grateful. I submit below a screenshot of what I see on the site despite the protection having been switched off on the little shield.

Hello! Since the most recent firefox update, my settings and extensions have been inaccessible to me due to my firefox account profile being "old." It has been working perfectly until this update. If I try to change my profile to my old one, it forces me to create a new one which does not include my saved addons and settings. I am able to usually manually move my bookmarks to the new profile via the files stored locally. I really need access to the settings and extensions, so it would be great if someone can help me to recover them. I tried to troubleshoot by finding my extensions local folder from my old profile, and I copied it to a new profile, but it didn't work. I am also wondering, if I do copy the extensions successfully, how can I also copy the settings preferences? Any solution is appreciated, thank you!

Firefox browser opens minimized - about half size. Support article suggests a refresh, tried that and it works for the first time the browser is opened after the refresh and then reverts to the same size.

Another suggestion was to delete the xulstore.json file as it may be corrupt. Done that several times. Each time, that solution works for the first time the browser is opened. Beginning with the second time, the behavior returns.

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Same result. Works for the first time the browser is opened.

I have no extensions or plug-ins installed other then what exists from the default browser. I am running the current version of Firefox, Windows 11, fully updated system with plenty of RAM and disk space.

Thanks!

We just bought a new HP computer with Windows 11 and I'm trying to install Firefox. I d/l the file from the Mozilla website, clicked on the file that d/l and the installation begins. The installation progresses until the bar indicates it's over 1/2 way done. Then all of a sudden the screen changes to show a blank tab name and the file area says something about a Google search. What am I supposed to do with this page since I don't know what I'm supposed to search for. I don't see a way to get back to the installation page. I just want to install Firefox so why all this runaround without an installation?

I've always used the "Always ask you where to save files" option when downloading. Recently (beginning of April 2022), files go directly to the Downloads folder. The "Always ask" option is still selected in Settings.

I've tried un-selecting and re-selecting, restarting Firefox, restarting my computer - basically every iteration of 'turn it off and on again' that I can think of.
