HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

In Ubuntu 18.04, I bring up a new page, click in the search bar in the middle of the page. Then when I start typing it jumps to the address bar although I have already placed and preferred the search bar to the right. No! NO! NO!

I use Duck Duck Go but Google does the same.

It is bad enough that the upgrade was automatically loaded but on top of that, changing preferences including dumping my home page. Change privacy settings without asking ( to a lower level on top of that ).

Really POOR form.

Hello,

My questions concerns the "Remove Folder" selection.

I right-clicked a folder on the bookmarks drop-down menu, and accidentally selected remove folder. Does this mean that the folder has been deleted or does it mean that it has been collapsed and the constituent book marks have been moved elsewhere (other bookmarks, bookmark toolbar, etc).

If the folder has in fact been deleted, is there any way of retrieving it?

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (89.0) on both of my Windows 7 computers as well as on my iPhone. I have this really annoying glitch where I'll bookmark a page, and Firefox will occasionally duplicate that bookmark hundreds of times. I've gone in and deleted the duplicates, but then the problem re-occurs, so I'm trying to figure out how to finally fix this! I've already spent several hours looking through your help forums and trying to fix it, but nothing seems to work. Here's what I've done:

I turned off sync on all my devices. I also noticed that I had the iCloud synch extension on one of my computers, so I removed that, since I read that might cause some issues. Then I went and cleaned up the bookmarks on one of my computers, deleting all the duplicate entries, and I exported an HTML version of my bookmarks to my computer and also created a backup .json file. I refreshed Firefox on that computer. And I changed my sync password, since I read somewhere that that would supposedly force my old data to be deleted from Firefox's server.

Then I turned sync back on on that one computer, hoping that the latest version of my bookmarks that were on that computer would now update to Firefox's server. But instead of replacing the old bookmarks file in the cloud, it simply added back the old duplicate bookmarks to my computer (which apparently never got deleted from Firefox servers, despite the password change). Super frustrating. Isn't there a way to force a one-way sync, so the version of the bookmarks file that I have locally -- which has the latest changes -- takes priority??

I then tried going to "Import bookmarks from HTML," hoping that the version I had previously saved would replace this bad, outdated version I had downloaded from the server, but that didn't seem to do anything (I guess import only adds new bookmarks but doesn't delete existing bookmarks?). Could I import the json file instead? If so, how do I do that? I've considered deleting all my bookmarks and then importing the html file again to see if that fixes it, but it looks like the html file doesn't include the bookmarks on my toolbar. Is that correct? If so, I don't want to lose them.

Not sure what this is so glitchy and so difficult to fix. Can someone please help?

Hi, my machine choked and died on the latest Windows update. I tried every trick I know, but eventually had to admit defeat and nuke'n'boot. Most' 'of my stuff was either backed up or kept on a non-OS drive, but I needed to reinstall Firefox. When I did, I found there is a limit to how many tabs Sync willl display at once from another device. That limit is 1,271 tabs, which is not all of mine - I'm pretty sure I had more than that open in a single one' 'of my seven open windows (though probably only the one window had that many).

Also, with the new Firefox update, while I can open all 1,271 at once, that just leads to Firefox crashing. When similar things happened in the past, I could open, say, fifty at a time, and kill Firefox's process every time it became too much for my computer, then reopen firefox with all those tabs open but not active, however with FF 89 I only seem to be able to open one or all.

To make matters worse, those 1,271 tabs I can see seem to be randomised each time, or at least randomly ordered, so I wouldn't even be able to methodically open all 1,271 with my usual method of killing firefox and reopening it.

Is there any way I can send the 1,271 straight to bookmarks, or open the entire session from the old install, or view more than the 1,271, or open the old synced tabs view, where I could open as many or as few as I wanted to, instead of all or (basically) nothing?

Thanks!

Firefox allows the show password option in the firefox password manager This is an extremely dangerous situation as it gives someone access to all your passwords if they have your windows login and your Firefox password is saved in Windows.

This means that if you save your Firefox password to Windows, and someone gets access to your PC, they can get a copy and read of all of your account names and account passwords in the Firefox password manager.

Access opporrunities for example are a technical support person working on your windows account.

A security update should change this to encrypt stired passwords and remove the show password option in the Firefox Password Manager.
