Is it possible to always show the tabs list menu button in Firefox?

When a window has only a few tabs open, the menu button for the list of tabs, which appears at the right hand end of the tab bar, is not shown. This menu button only seems to appear once you have more than around 15 tabs open in the window.

However, before you reach that number of open tabs, the individual tabs become quite narrow and it is still easier and quicker to choose a tab from the menu than by hovering over the narrow tab titles.

Is there an about:config setting or extension that will make this tab list menu button stay visible at all times?

I have URL directing MS Word to a file on WebDAV server (ms-word:ofe|u|https://server/file.docx). Word is opening file if address is open from shortcut on desktop or url in IE but is not able to open file if url is invoked from Firefox. Word is launched but shows error . Is process launched by URI scheme somehow dependent on application from which it is executed?

I am attempting to sync my mobile phone with my laptop. All I get is a message invalid format. There is no suggestion of what a valid phone format is with United States. What is a valid phone number format for the United States.

EDIT:

I found the answer in another post on the main Firefox forum. I explain it in my post below. (2019.08.03 T11:08 CDT)

I consider the question answered.

I have been using a very old version of firefox on my desktop. Now I want to update it, but to somehow keep an installation of a pre-webextension version. IIRC two different installations can't live within the same Windows, so I'm looking for a portable installation of the old version. (Running a second instance of the same installation is no help).

The problem is that I already have an updated portable app on my usb stick. I am wondering, if I save an old, portable firefox (on a separate folder) on the same usb stick that already has a portable firefox installation, will it cause any trouble to either?

Since the first Win10 update about a week ago (there have been two in quick succession), pages are sometimes missing individual portions of text or in the case of the Mozilla Help home page and others, almost all of the text.

Links appear to be there but are not visible (the cursor turns to an active cursor when passed over some parts of a page).

Win10 is now at 1903 for Win 64 Firefox is now at 68.0 for 64-bit

I had to use my phone to post this because I cannot post in the Community Support portion of Help.

I'm unable to open Firefox after recent Windows updates. Unfortunately I cannot resolve this through a system restore as I did a system clean up before I realised the problem and lost the restore points. I tried upgrading to Windows 10 as that should resolve the problem but have come up against the issue of the system automatically reinstalling the previous operating system (ie Windows 7) at the end of the download/installation process. I tried removing the firewall and virus protection but Windows 10 still wouldn't install after 3 attempts. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem of Firefox not launching, while staying with Windows 7, would be very much appreciated.

Firefox slow in loading pages since release of 36.0.1

Since v36.0.1 page load times have increased from 2 to 7 seconds. See attached Firefox health report. A number of Firefox support forums suggest Norton Internet Security is the likely cause. I have tried the following: removing all Mozilla folders from Sonar, AutoProtect etc; changing the Firefox firewall option from 'auto' to 'allow'; updating Norton Insight rating for Firefox. None have had any effect on page load times. There is also a discrepency between how Firefox reports update history and that reported by other progams. Firefox suggests v35.0.1 was installed on 26 Feb; Norton suggests it was v36 that was installed on that date. The Norton scenario is supported by a backup taken on 1 March showing v36 installed. Norton and Firefox agree that v36.0.1 was installed on 5 March; this is when the page load times increased.

The above problem happened on a 64bit Win7 desktop. Apart from automatic updates from Firefox, MS and Norton nothing else changed on the desktop.

I also have a 32bit Win7 laptop having a similar configuration to the desktop and running Firefox v36.0.1 and Norton Internet Security. The page load times have remained constant at 3 seconds despite upgrading from 35.0.1 to 36.0.1.

Any suggestions on what I should try next will be gratefully received.

Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

I want to to autoplay videos after opening them in a background tab only when I select them BUT not autoplay videos on when Firefox starts up and restores my previous session. The problem is that if I want Firefox to automatically load web pages on start-up, the videos will play regardless of what I set "media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground" to.

Is there any way around this? I like having videos not play until I select them, but when Firefox loads up when I start my laptop, all the videos from my previous session start playing at once, which is pretty annoying.

Any help is appreciated!

Since installing Firefox 56.0.2 recently I have repeatedly experienced slowdowns or complete failure to load. Error message reads: "The intruction at 0x..... referenced memory at 0x00000000... The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program."

I appreciate that there is a long history of complaints about this problem, and suggestions offered to remedy it. None of them work for me.

I cannot avoid the problem by opening Firefox in Safe Mode. Several times I have uninstalled Firefox several times, made sure to download the appropriate version for my system (Win 7, 64-bit), deleted Mozilla files in the Program Files and Program Files (x86) folders and then attempted a Clean Reinstall. I have run anti-virus and malware checks without identifying anything. Also did a Windows System Restore without success. Still the problem continues, regardless (but does not affect Firefox on my Apple Mac). Cannot find any fresh suggestions online so I would much appreciate some help with this.

How can I fix this "Adobe two-version" problem, so only the latest version stays enabled, the old version stays DISABLED, and/or uninstall the old version?

I went to my add-ons tab, and I DO, in fact, have two versions of shockwave flash, an 11.9...version, and a 13.9..., which, if I'm not mistaken, is the latest version. There is a "ask to activate, always activate, never activate" button for EVERY add-on. I clicked never activate on the older version, and closed the tab. I then tried to play a video off of the Web. It would not play, I tried another site with the same result, so I went back to my add-on tab, and the button for the older version had changed back to "always activate" by itself. It continues to repeat this, and WILL NOT stay on "never activate". Every few times I return to the add-ons page, THE NEW VERSION IS DISABLED, AS WELL AS THE OLD ONE. I've tried to uninstall the old version, but when I go through control panel, and bring up the folder contents, the old version isn't even there! I've done start, find, and typed in "Adobe", and the old version is NOT FOUND! Both versions keep changing back and forth on the activate button, and they both will disable on their own, no matter how many times I fix it! smh!!
