Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I have no add-on. When I set my default browser to be bing, sometime later is back to yahoo. Also my home, when I set it, it changes back to default. Both of these happen at the same time. I have changed them 100+ times. This just started about 6 months ago. I have used Firefox for years.

Need current beta channel profile on release channel Firefox

I am trying to keep a work (Windows 10) and home computer (Mac/Mojave) in sync for my Firefox settings. I have long been on beta update channel at home (now 80.0b3) but work machine is locked down to release version only (not sure which one that is).

I get the following error when I try to sync or open a release channel version of Firefox

"You've launched an older version of Firefox.

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this version of Firefox."

This error dialog offers no options for 'override'.

I need my current user profile to work across platforms and on release channel. I have customizations that I cannot recreate because FF made it too hard to find out how to recreated long-ago and necessary modifications (like killing that bleeping 'throbbing' tab slider that I cannot cope with....and others I don't even know how to describe.

I don't care about bookmarks and browsing history--I never save history and I know how to export, save, and reimport bookmarks.

I care only about my about:config, userchrome and prefs.js and the like.

How can I get around this BUG?

And: am I the only one who thinks the throbbing slider on the loading tabs is the creation of the devil? I can't avoid getting distracted by it--the visual noise is intolerable especially in a work environment.

I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

I received a FireFox update today and lost all of my bookmarks. I tried to sign into Firefox Sync using my work email and I couldn't remember my password. I tried to reset it and when I get to the screen to enter the new password, I get a warning that says Undeliverable Email. I've tried multiple times to reset it and no luck. Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

COPY PASTE not working with Avast web sheild turned on and using the browser Firefox.

My OS is Catalina. Currently 10.15.6 My Firefox is 79.0 My Avast is 14.5 with only the 3 most fundamental core shields (email. web. and file)

Copy and paste is broken within Firefox when you have the Avast Web Shield enabled. While its enabled, other browsers do not have the same issue. Copy and paste in Safari and Chrome works fine. If you turn off the web sheild in Avast you must close and re-open the Firefox Browser and the issue is gone.

The Firefox reset/refresh that i tried, based on another post, only really disables the web shield for a small time, when avast refreshes it puts it back. So its not fixing the issue, its temporarily disabling it.

Its rather aggravating. Anyone solved it? Im posting on both FF and Avast forums.

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.

I used to see a feature in a question/answer editor here at FireFox help that allowed images to be displayed inline instead of only as thumbnails at the end of an answer or as links in the text of an answer. I saw answers with inline images today. How do you do that? Attached image shows what I mean. The attached image also is an example of an image not displaying inline.
