I restarted Firefox after a reboot and had received the new update (70). I previously had opened tabs (I work a LOT with opened tabs). All of them were now gone. No option to recover previous sessions was under settings. Also, none of my add-ons were present. Is this intended behaviour? Also, it seems to suggest I had to create a FF login to 'sync' things up? With what? I don't need my phone and my PC sync'd. I don't need my work and my home PC sync'd. It's fine that this was a feature previously but please tell me this isn't being thrust upon us because someone thinks that's "what everyone wants"?

I downloaded a malicious add-ons extension called "YouTube to MP3 Convert Button" by "Firefox user 6248547". All it did was open a video conversion website, which worked for the first video I tried (with alot of popups) but the second video I tried, it redirected me to a fake Firefox update page. As soon as I tried to cancel it, a login popup kept appearing and all my open tabs immediately went haywire trying to do some kind of redirect, and I it would not let me click on anything. I quickly ended the process to force close the browser, restarted Firefox and cleared my cache and uninstalled the extension. I am concerned about what kind of malware this may have installed on my machine. I reported this user over a month ago, but it is still available on the add-on page, and other people also commented about it having malware. Any suggestions?

I'm using Windows XP theme for Windows 7. Yes, it may sound weird, but I love that old Windows' design.

The problem is about the Mozilla Firefox browsers window height. As you can see in the screeenshot I posted below (or above, I actually have no idea where exactly), the bottom window is Mozilla Firefox browser and the top window is nothing but an explorer. Explorer has the default window height so we see the "minimise", "maximise" and "close" buttons correctly as it should be.

Is there a way to change this in Mozilla Firefox browser? It's not a big deal, but kinda bugs me when I look at that place.

Thank you.

Here is a fiddle showing the problem: https://jsfiddle.net/hefczx3a/12/

Even though all the elements are the same dimension with no margins/padding. Firefox displays scrollbars... On Chrome it is displayed as intended, covering the viewport without any scrollbars.

Is this is Firefox bug?

With a Macbook Pro running Catalina (10.15.1) and Firefox 71.0b5 (or older versions) If FF is open on a second monitor connected via display port (I have 2 external monitors and built-it), when you Secondary click (AKA right Click) the context menu will often appear on the main Mac display rather than the monitor running FF. Also as the screen are different resolution the menu uses a smaller font. I have attached screen shots showing the two monitors. Assume this a FF bug?

So I've made a few changes in userChrome.css to resize the tab sizes with some code that I've collected. In summary, I've changed the height and width as well as hid the tab title.

The problem that I've run into is that the tabs will kinda glitch out and the extra space won't collapse when the tab is closed (as shown in one of the screenshots). It seems to have to do with setting the width of the tab, since when I comment out the css styles to make them normal size again, tabs close properly.

I'd appreciate any thoughts y'all have. Thanks

Using Firefox Developer Edition version 71.0b11 (64 bit).

I store credentials for the site I visit most frequently. For some of those sites I may have multiple logins. Everything good so far.

Currently, when I'm on the login page for any of those site, the suggested list includes credentials "From this web site" and from other more or less similar websites (e.g. subdomains, internal pages, and so on). Can I disable this option and only see suggestions "From this web site"?

When I opened up Mozilla this am, the screen went to notice that I was updated, and would I like to sign up for Firefox. I scanned the offerings, and assumed all the info would be there when I hit next. It went to signup right away, I confirmed my email, but what is available to me seems scattered in different place; in fact, I'm confused with being Mozilla signed up, and now Firefox. I was hoping you had a chat support so I could be directed to easier understanding.

I am running a recently refreshed version of Firefox 71.0 (64 bit). My Firefox is closing completely whenever I try to browse to locate a file. This happens on multiple sites, but as an example, I went to https://send.firefox.com/ and tried to browse out for a file. The file explorer window opens, but then Firefox freezes and shuts down. There are no crash reports generated when this happens. This also happens when I run Firefox in safe mode. This has been happening for a few days and was also happening in Firefox 70.0.1.

I tried the same process using Microsoft Edge, and I am able to browse out for the file without issue.

Thank You
