Someone asked this before about a year ago but I didn't find any legit answers. Just suggesting to use a different theme which I don't want to do. Is there an option to disable this or an add-on? If not, Mozilla needs to address this because that thick blue border is just terrible looking.

Also note, this is not because of Windows 10. Windows 10 doesn't put any weird borders around URL box in Chrome or Edge. So I am pretty sure this is a FF issue.

Every single time I either resize the window or scroll through pages, firefox does this strange visual glitch. It doesn't happen on chrome, internet explorer, or anything else. I have already tried downloading and updating firefox to its newest version, but to no avail. I'd really like an answer to this, as it is horribly annoying. Thank you.

I've disabled hardware acceleration in FF but it didn't help. I'm using Win7 which is up to date.

I don't know what other info would be needed so please let me know and I will provide it.

I used to be able to minimize Firefox with one click on the taskbar icon, even with several tabs open. Now it won't let me do that. Now when I hover my mouse over the FF icon, a pop-up shows all the tabs that are open and I must find another way to minimize Firefox. I'm missing something here.

Firefox won't read my password file

I don't know why - possibly after a firefox update to 49.0.2? But Firefox on Windows 10 is no longer saving or using my saved passwords. When I try to display saved logins, there are none showing. However, I do have intact key3.db and logins.json files, and I can see in logins.json that there are lots of logins stored in there. So I'm sure the data are there, but just not being read.

Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Refresh didn't help. Synch seems to connect, but doesn't help. Isn't there some command to force the browser to read the saved logins file?

Within the past week, Flash completely stopped working in Firefox 49.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 7. I can get it working at, e.g., http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ if I remove all of my extensions, but as soon as I reinstall, say, Firebug, it's gone again.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot? Thanks!

I have a desktop and a laptop. Both have identical configurations for Firefox, plugins, add-ons, versions, Windows 8.1 64-bit, permissions. Videos play just fine on my desktop. But the only difference is when I try to play a video on my laptop in the foxnews.com website in normal Firefox mode, videos don't play. If I go to other websites, they do. If I try to play the video in foxnews.com in safe mode, it plays also. If I try foxnews.com video with Firefox in normal mode and all plugins disabled, the video still doesn't play. I have the latest video graphics drivers. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

Had a problem with a few websites not loading properly. Did a web search looking for solutions and found suggestion to refresh firefox. It said it would store all bookmarks, etc. Clicked the button, and lost everything. Nothing was imported after the refresh (homepage, bookmarks, I don't know what all). Found directions for copying from old profile to new profile. Found a folder that says "Old Firefox Data," but does not have all my bookmarks in there. Created a new profile and tried copying what bookmarks were there, but still don't see anything but Mozilla's bookmarks in the browser. Refresh didn't fix the original problem (those pages still won't load) and created more problems. How can I get my information back?

The owner of www.wikipedia.org has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website. This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

I don't understand their reasoning since last week (I think) I was able to connect just fine. I am not great with computers to say the least. Took me forever to find "Options" etc.

Thanks
