I noticed one day that when I opened firefox it would restart itself each time before letting me do anything. I couldn't figure out why, but I happened to run my mouse over an invisible add on. It was unlabeled as well so I have no idea what is was. I deleted it and reported it but after closing firefox it did the same thing upon repopening it. Now the address bar is red and I don't understand why, how do I make it go back to normal. Also I have refreshed firefox a couple times but after each refresh it is the same thing.

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

I'm trying to set up a new account using new@example.com but I keep getting a "Primary account email required" message. I found new@example.com was set as a secondary email for the old@example.com account. I removed it and old@example.com no longer has a secondary email, but I'm still getting the "Primary account email required" message.

I am having this same problem! https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1271595

Looks like Firefox accounts have a bug, you guys must not be properly removing secondary emails from you database. Please take a look, extremely frustrating!

Hi, I'm using the latest firefox version 89.0.2. There's a large tab bar at the top. I never use tabs. Safari doesn't show the tab bar unless multiple tabs are being used. This leaves more space to show webpages. I'd like to hide the tab bar permanently or when only one page/tab is used. I guess that means the red, yellow and green mac circles in the upper left would have to be moved to the lower bar, by shifting the back and forward arrows slightly to the right, as is done on Safari.

I looked online for suggestions. chrome.css files were mentioned. But they didn't explain what those were or how to create/access them. So the guidance was not helpful to those who didn't understand those files, like me.

Can you please let me know how to hide the tab bar?

Based on all the comments I saw on threads, it seems many others think the tab bar wastes space. It would be great if Firefox preferences provided an easy option for hiding the tab bar.

Thanks, Frank

Hello everyone,

I believe I asked this about a year back, and the answer is that is wasn't possible.

I would like a specific behaviour on firefox. That, whenever I open it, it does the exact same thing. It opens a single new window. That it never ever tries to restore the last session. That it always starts fresh.

Preferably even if it "crashed", I tend not to close the browser but shut down with the tabs and apps open.

Intuitively this sounds to me like it should be easy to set, but I haven't been able to find a way.

Also, if possible I would like the rest of history to work. I find that history is useful, it's the session specifically I'd like it to forget / not try to resotre.

Thanks,

Sashin

i got a new browser, was trying to get it to recognize mailto commands. instead it opens a window to go to a profile (tried it in edge does the same thing).

originally it was finding an old profile i made ages ago, but it insists on making a brand new profile.

the thing is, i don't have a profile, all my files are listed in a custom directory i put into the thunderbird directory (to make it portable). and if i try to make a profile it blanks it all out - settings, structure etc. even if i copied the old files into a new directory and focused the new profile with the old files in it.

and now i'm starting to confuse myself.


basically i think what i need is - the ability to create a profile of my current settings, so i can give that to the browsers. i don't remember having this issue with waterfox. but i'm using something else now. is there a way to do this? take what i have, that isn't in an official profile, and just put it into a profile?

thanks.

Problems with glitzy new browser: 1. Home page replaced by a mystery page. That page appears even without an Internet connection. 2. Address bar does not allow a keyed or pasted URL. 3. Colors at top of screen blot out the min, max, and close buttons and make the open page buttons unreadable.except for active page button. 4. Moving to a new, or even a follow-up, page is slower.

I have been with Mozilla ever since the early days with the Netscape browser, and have always been happy with the many updates, that is, until this one. Get rid of the colors, and make the address bar functional again. I found the solution to the "mystery page" in Tools/Settings and reclaimed my home page, "homepage." I hope it holds.

Before I switch to Microsoft Edge.

Does anyone have a working solution to Firefox crashing on me every time the system file dialog opens in order for me to save something?

This is an ongoing problem and I don't seem to be the only one with this issue.

So is there a fix or should I just stop wasting my time with Firefox and move to Microsoft Edge like so many have done already?

Thanks
