Updated firefox to 78.0.1 and now some websites aren't appearing in the drop down address bar. Before the update I counted 10 entries in the drop down menu and currently I'm at 8. However, if I enter the key "^" key I see the original 10. Is there anyway to make this original 10 appear by default?

hi, Firefox 77.0.1 (32-bit) in Windows 7 crashed completely and i had to taskkill /im firefox.exe /f

this has happened a few times before, and up to this point Firefox could always restore the last session when reopened (maybe minus any last minute pages or any pages causing errors)

this time, the browser restored many pages, some of them are pages/tabs that i had already closed days before the crash (that i do not need) and also it didn't restore tens of tabs that i had opened afterwards (that i need) the missing tabs are not tabs that i opened right before the crash, they were open for at least one or two days in other words, the session restored is an earlier/older version and not the session i was having during/near the crash

is there something i can try to restore the correct session fully? would there be another restore file i can use? thank you for your time

I have been using firefox for years and am very happy with it. I have a Dell optiplex 7010 desktop. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I do not have a firewall turned on. Apparently, my desktop browser was updated to Firefox 78.0.1 (64-bit) on 7-1-2020. Since that time, I have been unable to access any websites from Firefox including mozilla.org. I am connected through WiFi. After downloading the Opera browser I have been able to access any website with no problems. I read community troubleshooting on this issue and tried various fixes including turning off IPv6. I read the community article about turning off my personal firewall. I was unaware of using any firewall so I installed Gufw Firewall 18.04.0. Running this program shows my firewall status is "OFF". I checked my AT&T modem and could not find any firewall settings that specifically mentioned Firefox. I would like to continue using Firefox since I use it on my phone and laptop also use it.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1520 running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64 bit. It also accesses the internet through the same WiFi. It currently has no problems loading web sites with Firefox version 78.0.1

Please help.

Now, to close all tabs or tabs on the right, you need to do 2 clicks and use the drop-down menu, which is very inconvenient. All this appeared in a recent Firefox update. I ask you to return everything back. Google Chrome made the same change recently and it was met very negatively.

The Firefox browser on Windows desktop 100% redirects to an isolated and unusable bank login page. No other browser does this. Firefox Android does not do this. I tried clearing cookies / cache, disabled all extensions, safe mode without success. This is very frustrating when trying to use and support Firefox over Brave which never has these issues. In both cases below, the initial site nearly fully loads then redirects. Malware not an issue given very tight PC security and new install of Firefox.

Chase.com -> https://secure03a.chase.com/web/auth/logonbox?lang=en&fromOrigin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.chase.com#/logonbox/index/index

schwab.com -> https://lms.schwab.com/Login?clientId=schwab-prospect&startInSetId=1&redirectUri=https://client.schwab.com/login/signon/authcodehandler.ashx&enableappd=false

Both of the redirects contain only the login forms of the main page (eg "Login ID", "Password", "Login" button)

I have just switched to a new Macbook laptop. If firefox, when clicking on the bookmark star in the address field, the drop down box opens to edit the bookmark. When clicking on Choose Bookmark, the list that opens contains only 6 lines of folders to choose from. With my last few computers, I was easily able to search and get an answer on how to increase the number of lines from 6 to whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I never wrote it down and now I cannot recall how to do this. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thank you!

As of about a week ago I have been unable to connect to https://weather.com using Firefox 78.0.1 64bit on Windows 10 Pro. As far as I have found in my regular browsing this is the only website with this problem; other websites open properly. The problem with https://weather.com occurs no matter how I try to connect - selecting a bookmark that worked in the past or typing directly in the address bar. If I am using an empty blank window what I see is a window that remains blank. The name that I typed in shows in the address bar but there is no padlock icon and no trackers shield. I am attaching a screen shot.

If I open Firefox in a private window I AM able to connect to https://weather.com as I could before in the ordinary window. I am also able to connect to https://weather.com using other browsers.

Any suggestions as to what has happened and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

Is the cookie clearing function of CCleaner 100% redundant for those who use only Firefox as a browser and choose settings that delete all or nearly cookies when the browser closes? Ideally, I would like to dispense with CCleaner for cookie clearance and depend only on my Firefox browser settings for that. [The various other functions of CCleaner, and its overall value, are not part of my question.]
