I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.

when saving a bookmark firefox fails to save it. there are no properties to change as it looks corrupted. Opera, Brave, Safari, Chome all fine. dont ask me what version - you have hidden version info really well. I think its the latest but who knows??

Been using FF for about 13 years now. Seems like Firefox is broken? Why do I have to constantly revert to chrome or other browser TO GET ANYTHING DONE?

When opening a fresh window/tab on Mozilla Firefox, the address bar is selected by default so you can start typing a url, search, etc (first image).

I would like to change that, so everytime I open a new window/tab the "Search the Web" bar is already selected by default (second image).

All of that while keeping the "Web Search" feature from Options>Home as my homepage.

Any ideas?

Obs: I'm having problems with the "Add images" feature in this forum, so I used postimage.

This one is hard to pin down, but occasionally Firefox will go unresponsive but will accept one previous mouse action (like clicking a tab) when I put Firefox in the background by clicking another open non-Firefox window and bringing it to the front.

How this happens:

1. I lock my macbook and step away from the desk for an undetermined amount of time. 2. I come back to my desk and unlock my computer. 3. I click on firefox to browse for something and it doesn't respond 4. I'll click another tab that isn't in focus, nothing will happen 5. I click on any other open application and I will notice that Firefox will change to the tab I had just clicked on 6. If I go back to Firefox, it will not respond to anything until I bring some other application to focus.

Sometimes, if I wait a long time like 10 or 15 minutes, the problem will resolve itself. Usually I just get frustrated and close Firefox.

I feel like this has to be a problem between Firefox and some other application that I run. Some other appications that are typically open are:

iTerm2 Spotify Lastpass Plugin Microsoft Outlook Atom.io Sometimes TweetDeck Maybe another Firefox profile

I have been unable to regularly reproduce this issue, but it will typically happen multiple times a day.

One other behavior that I have noticed is that I can click the address bar and nothing visible happens, but if I start typing, the suggestion bar will pop up and accept the text I am typing. I am including a picture of that behavior

When using google search page not google maps, the page does not show street view anymore when putting in address and searching for it. This happened a few days ago and persists. I reached out to google and they said it was a firefox issue. I have enclosed 2 photos one from chrome which show what Firefox used to show, and one from firefox missing the image. This is what a google forum user said is the problem I did hear back from someone they thought it was on Google's end not Firefox's so they escalated it/made sure the information got to Google so Google is investigating this. They did something technical (so over my head) with inspecting the element section of the webpage and found out for the Firefox there is no prefix in CSS style (image property). Once they added the proper CSS style prefix from the list located at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Glossary/Vendor_Prefix#Property_and_method_prefixes the street view showed for them. It wont let me load images?

This particular module (FVD_Downloader_Module) is hogging my machine.

It is using about 50% of CPU (Windows task manager) on an ongoing basis, and making the machine hang the whole time.

Why does this module do this? Is there any way of stopping it?

The add-ons I have are Ant Video Downloader, Flash Video Downloader, My Video Downloader and Grab Any Media.

I am running Win 7 on a socket 775 motherboard with a 3.2gHz dual core processor and 4gb RAM.

I have discovered that this FVD module runs even when I am not downloading.

When I terminated the process the machine pretty well went back to running normally. Also when I terminated the process none of the add-ons worked.

I printed the Task Manager screen showing the module and the CPU percent, but can't seem to be able to paste it here.

Has anyone any ideas on this?

I have also noticed that Firefox itself is running three processes and not just one.

Any reason for this?

On all websites displayed in Firefox, all colors and images seem a lot more faded than on literally any other place on my computer. I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and the difference is very obvious, especially for saturated colors.

The image shows the issue very clearly. The true colors are depicted above and the faded colors are depicted below. I can’t seem to get the image to upload through the site, so here’s an external link: https://i.imgur.com/YWz9i3j.png

Greetings,

I've noticed that at times there's blank space on the left side of the pinned tabs but other times not. Is this a bug or by design?

This seems to occur at random with regular browsing but I haven't found what consistently causes it. I can repro by checking the Menu Bar on and off. When the Menu Bar is on, the blank space goes away.

I'm attempting to upload screenshots but the tool is timing out on me.

Thanks!
