I'm using firefox on Windows 10. I want to use different accounts for a website at the same time, so I created two profiles. But when I use these profiles at the same time, these icons are gruoped into one taskbar icon. I only can add one shortcut(for one profile) on my taskbar and start menu.

Is there any way to separate these icon by profiles? and add multiple profiles shortcuts on taskbar?

In version 75 when I click in the address bar, a list of my most common sites appears, but at the TOP of this list are search with google and also amazon.co.uk. These are options I do not want to see, just "my" web sites. How can I remove these two items from the drop down list? Thanks.

The latest update of Firefox includes an incredibly annoying "feature". Clicking in the address bar brings up a drop-down list of sites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. This is distracting and I don't like Firefox shilling for these other sites. How do I get rid of these?

I do not care for how the address bar swells in size. I find it annoying and not useful as I use a separate search bar which is the ONLY reason I use Firefox instead of Chrome. Please tell me how to revert back to the previous was this worked. This is one new feature that I find annoying as it hides part of the items underneath it.

Hi,

See attached for details. One feature I'm trying to setup with FF is search engine query URL shortcuts. Basically, it allows the user to type a letter and it auto enables that URL. In this case, we're using Reddit. Basically, it allow us to type 'R' followed by a space which then auto populates the query URL. We can then type in our requested subreddits. However, I haven't been able to get this to work with FF. The search engine function add-on in firefox only enables a general search instead of subreddit specific. Would love to hear any feedback and/or solutions. Thanks in advance.

As of Firefox 75, the address bar plumps out in an "enlarged" state. This is a new feature of Firefox 75, announced here: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/04/07/latest-firefox-updates-address-bar-making-search-easier-than-ever/

I'm wondering: how can I revert this back to how it was? I don't want it to plump out since it partly covers up the surrounding UI elements. I have a muscle memory for sometimes minimizing this bar with Escape, then clicking one of my bookmarks or one of the UI elements. I haven't had an issue seeing the address bar before, so this new feature is a detriment to me.

Thank you

Last week my hard drive died in my laptop, and the only thing that's truly gone is my Firefox bookmarks. Prior to this event I had these synched with Safari on my iPhone, but I don't recall how I did that & how to get them back into Firefox.

I have a DNS resolver running on my router, and I had reports from users on my network that after upgrading to nightly 77 they were no longer able to access any intranet domains, I have tested this as well and it would appear that all intranet domains are trying to do search results, this is causing issues as clients(whom I do not own or control their computer) need to access my captive portal prior to gaining internet access and their search fails.

Can Firefox "cast?" a video from my Linux Mint-Mate laptop to my ROKU ultra device using Ethenet-only connectivity- no wifi available.

Please be understanding . . . This is my first ever attempt to get help, and I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly. I noticed that Firefox now has a channel-app on Roku. But I only connect to my Roku Ultra streaming device using Ethernet. The Firefox browser which I use is located on my laptop, running Linux-Mint-Mate, distro 19 and it's also connected only by Ethernet to my network: My Roku device and my laptop are connected to the same Ethernet-only home network. The reason I cannot use wifi is that my wifi is too slow - Router is 16/4 and I think I'd need a new, much faster router 32/8, or better. But my laptop is very old and it's unlikely it can transmit wireless signals fast enough for a reliable HD signal anyway . . . I would like to be able to send streaming videos from my laptop, to my Roku Ultra - to my TV. (It is not a smart TV - it's just an old Panasonic Plasma HD TV). I have an NBC Sports Pass Gold - Cycling Pass subscription account which (because of their app's. limitations) cannot play all of the available videos from its Roku channel app, because their ROKU channel app's videos are limited to just the most recent 90-day posted events. But all of the older videos from the earlier part of the season can always be played from their website, directly from my NBC account, which is located only on my laptop. -So this means that I can only watch these older videos on my laptop. My Linux operating system is running on an older HP Elitebook laptop with a duel-boot setup with Windows XP. If it is not possible to send these website-only videos across my network via Ethernet to my Roku Ultra device to my TV, could you tell me exactly what hardware devices etc. I would need to buy to do this successfully using wifi? My wifi speed to my apartment is very, very fast - it uses Comcast's fiber-optic service. Please note; I am only be able to follow very simple, step-by-step answers. I am elderly and I'm just a novice with computers etc. Thank you very much for any help with explanations, and options that I might have to accomplish this. Sincerely, DN24

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

I've read that I can hit escape to pause things, but no, I tried and it doesn't work.

Also, if anyone know of css fixes or other fixes for this site, that would help too. I have css to block some of the zooming animation on the front page, but not the zooming/expanding animation around selected text fields here.

When I go to a website for the first time, I get a drop-down list of username suggestions (email addresses and usernames I've used on other websites, etc). I don't want this... I only want the usernames/passwords that I have already entered and press 'save' for that site specifically. Can I disable the random suggestions without disabling saving passwords entirely?

How to restore address bar behavior and line height in 75.0?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

When I go full screen by dragging the browser window to the top of the monitor (Windows 10): My tabs row, toolbar and bookmarks disappear. There is a big blank white space where they should be. Screen shot attached. So can't use the instructions to exit full screen mode by clicking the menu button, because it's not there. The only thing I've found to work is to refresh firefox.

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks! (Working on Firefox 75. with a MAC)
