My Addons are working okay, however when I look at the about:addons page the list only shows blank spaces where addons should be, only a blue highlight shows if I click on each addon.

This is the same for my Plugins and Themes.

I have tried deleting some files in my profile as suggested by others on here with similar problems but none work.

Firefox is up to date. Windows 10 is up to date. Netflix video plays in all other browsers, IE 111, MS Edge, Chrome. It stopped playing in FF same time it stopped for the rest of the world about a year ago. I am tired of switching to another browser every time I go to Netflix. I have read other answers and they are all snippily saying that there is nothing wrong with FF but with settings in Windows 10. This doesn't fly because since Netflix video plays in ALL OTHER BROWSERS, this is a problem with FF not Windows 10. If FF would be so kind as to STOP being the bully in town ande conform to the same settings all other browsers use for playing Netflix video, this would be greatly appreciated. Meantime, instead of changing my Windows 10 settings to make FF happy over ALL OTHER BROWSERS, I will instead simply stop using , and convert solely to Chrome., If, in future, any of you scratch your heads and wonder why everyone fell away from FF remember these events. Goodbye.

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Today for no reason all my saved passwords on my desktop Firefox browser have disappeared. Fortunately on my android phone they all still exist. I have tried to sync and on Android it confirms sync has happened but the passwords will still not show on the desktop browser. Only new passwords now entered are being recorded.

I have never had this problem ever and have done nothing today that would cause this to happen

I have the most recent FF 66 and up to date Windows 10

Any suggestions welcome please.

I am using a Mac osx running high Sierra and I have noticed that some of my bookmarked sites do not produce the blue star. All bookmarked sites should produce the blue star for editing or modifying of the bookmark.

As an example IMDB trailers, the bookmarked item that does not produce a blue star the web address is https://www.imdb.com/trailers/?ref_=nv_mv_tr_3

When I go to bookmark the exact site again the blue star appears and the address is https://www.imdb.com/trailers/

This suggests a modification was made to the bookmark unknown to myself. Can any suggest a reason for change ?

When saving a Bookmark, and security is not an issue, it's useful to have User Name and PW in the properties tab. If the PW has CAPS within it and is saved, when reviewed, the CAPS have been all changed to lower-case. Makes it difficult to remember which character(s) were Capitalized when entering a PW. This is a problem with sites that require mixed characters.

I received some good suggestions about how to shut down without losing whatever was on the main window, when I didn't know another window had opened. Use Ctrl-Shft-Q.

But I so use X without thinking, that I have lost another load of tabs (that I reconstructed partially--they don't all show up in history unless every one has been opened in the last session, something I never, ever do) by using the wrong means to shut down FireFox.

Isn't this something FF should address? I can't be the only person losing 30+ tabs and unable to get them back bbc they weren't actually opened, but merely sitting on the Tab Row, so not in History.

This for me is gigantic. And reminding myself to use Ctrl-Shft-Q really is a lot to expect when every other program and app closes reliably with X.

Thanks.

Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Have been trying for hours, even by disabling Kaspersky and Ad Blocker .... but Social Fixer will NOT get added to Firefox. WAS there before, but had to re-install Firefox yesterday, and even though Social Fixer had previously been a working add-on .... Firefox does NOT add it now!

The various reasons are usually "connection error" bit a few times "Firefox will not allow user to accept or give permission " (I forget the exact wording).

Enclosed screen shot showing GOOD connection and Firefox "excuse"

Please help ....
