I've been having an issue where FF tabs stop letting me detatch or move them. I tried disabling all my extensions to see if that was the issue. Now I'm reading that MAC settings don't get saved if you disable it? What the heck!? No warning, no nothing? For me, this is a must-have feature for FF and it's the reason I recommend it personally and professionally. How is this not saved somewhere or part of my FF profile? I have to now try and remember all my site settings and containers and rebuild all of it. I can't believe this isn't a standard feature in an official extension.

Whenever I sign in to Ebay or Facebook or Messenger using Firefox , I immediately receive text and email warnings about a sign in from an unrecognised computer, asking if it was actually me. This does not happen when I use other browsers (Chrome or IE) so the problem seems to be with Firefox. How can I get these websites to recognise my PC and stop sending me these alerts?

I recently signed up for YouTube Premium. The interface for YouTube then changed to an absolutely awful new interface with multiple problems. I could (and will if asked) provide a list of these shortcomings, but far and away the most disturbing is NO VOLUME CONTROL!

I've tried logging out so that Premium no longer applies, but the awful interface remains.

I've tried logging into Premium on Chrome and the normal, useable interface is preserved.

I've performed multiple internet searches and cannot find any reference to this new(?) terrible interface, am I the only one who hast it?

My main question is: how do I get rid of it? Or do I have to reconcile myself to having to change my default browser to Chrome?

I've migrated everything from an old desktop to a new desktop and this is being written on the new one. Firefox has been transferred and all my bookmarks have made the move accurately. However, my entire list of log-ins, passwords, add-ons, etc., have NOT made the move. So my question is about how to transfer those, but my situation is slightly abnormal.

I do not have a smart phone. Further, I cannot set up the old desktop and the new desktop so they both function at the same time. However, I do have complete backups in the cloud. What I need is the name of the Firefox file(s) that I can obtain from the cloud and insert into the Firefox iteration I have running on the new desktop.

If I was able to synch a transfer would be easier. But it can't be all that much harder if I can get the name and location of the necessary profile folder or file.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

hi, i'm mostly interested in getting some help with creating my settings/preferences to stay the way i want them. every time there's a update, my personal settings get wiped out and i have to start all over again. there was a time when FF offered a way to leave some updates out and select the ones we wanted. now, it's all blanket updates. many times i lose important tabs and files. it's annoying. the way these updates are coming in i cringe each time i see the notice. and then there are times they get done automatically.

what's a mother to do?

many thanks for your consideration!

I found in 87.0 and now 88.0 that even after uninstalling and installing a new version, there is after clicking Menu/Options a message on top of the window:

" ! Your browser is controlled by your organisation" This is not true, there is no organisation on this PC. After clicking the link here is a new window saying there is a application active that is called "Disable App Update". After clicking "documentation" on the left side there opens a list of applications to modify the operation of Firefox. When clicking the Disable App Udate there opens a application text with on top GitHub and activities from M.Kaply Show/ Home Button Policy Strange that it says Disable Firefox Updates. Is this application installed by you? Are you perhaps 'the organisation'? Please let me know if this is safe or not.

I started using Firefox before I got a monitor to use with my laptop. Back then, font size was not an issue. As soon as I plugged in my monitor and dragged Firefox into it, then dragged it back to the laptop, the font was so small it was nearly illegible (in the laptop). Drag it back into the browser and it's fine.

Has anyone else had this issue? I've tried going to about:config, devp and adjusting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx up and down. I keep ending up with font that, if it looks good in my laptop, is WAY too large in the monitor. I just want a normal balance. Chrome doesn't have this scaling issue. Please help! It's affecting my ability to work!

I had to clear out my saved cache recently due to the fact that a certain website would not work any time cookies were made for it, and clearing out my browser's chache was the only solution i found. I already assumed it would remove all of the autofill, and maybe even my saved passwords from the memory (thankfully it didn't delete the passwords themselves), and I thought I would just be able to log back into everything and have it autofill from there. Even with the option turned on in settings, it still doesn't automatically log me in when i load up the page, the autofill is there when i go to manually log in, but for something like youtube it can get irritating, even if it is 3 button clicks.

I need to disable the Toggle Menu Bar activation hotkey F10. I use the F10 on the keypad as PointerFocus Spotlight hotkey. However, every time I hit F10, it brings up the Menu bar, which means I have to stop and hit F10 again or hit ESC. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

I can see a lot of items in pop-up menu comparable to old Firefox version. I don't need a lot of them. They just embarrassed me. How could I remove them? I can not find an option to add/remove items to pop-up menu.

I can see that some items in this pop-up menu are not visible at different web sites.

I don't need following items: "Open Image in New tab" "copy image link" "email image" "save page to pocket"

How to remove them?

Thanks
