My Fox was working fine. I downloaded a few add-ons and last pass. Shortly after that, I discovered that Fox was not on the taskbar, in the smart window or listed anywhere. So I have to download it every morning if I want to use it. Once downloaded it recognizes me and has all my bookmarks.

Addons not putting button on toolbar

Hello all, I have not posted a question here for a while, but I am trying to add an addon to my browser to download videos, but none of them will put a button on the toolbar, so there is no way to use the addons once they are installed. So, I try Customize toolbar from settings, but they do not seem to show up there either. It is like they were never installed at all, and confusing me. I do have one addon for downloading videos, but I was trying to get a second one, and the browser will not let me, for some reason. Am I doing something wrong here, because I got the addons from the official Firefox addons site?? Is this a problem with the addons, or something stupid wrong with the browser, please clarify, and Thanks in advance!!

I keep having problems with firefox blocking my searches or when it goes through changing the search site to Bing. I have tried the remedies in the forum pages

When I type in a word or site name without adding ".com," I get "adcenterexpress" showing up in the search bar or it might switch to Bing if I put it in the Google search bar(sometimes adcenterexpress come up there too). I do not want to use Bing. I have tried every relatable advice page on your site without success in changing this. What should I do? Turning off McAfee does not help. I turned off Firefox tracking protection without benefit. Nothing in your forum has helped and keeps taking you in circles.

Hello,

This is a recurring problem I've had pop up twice after updates, the most recent one persisting since about a month ago. Firefox will not load, or even attempt to load, certain websites. Pressing enter after entering the URL does quite literally nothing, as if I typed nothing at all.

Some affected websites include: mail.google.com reddit.com mercari.com pixiv.com

When this problem previously occurred in Oct 2019, I switched dom.storage.next_gen to false, which fixed it, but toggling this option no longer solves the problem.

1) Disabling add-ons does not change anything, the sites do not load in Safe Mode 2) Clearing cookies and cache does not change anything 3) The sites will load in Private mode
