У меня такой вопрос: до последнего обновления 89.0, если мне нужно было отправить страницу с компьютера на свой телефон, я нажимал в строке браузера справа значок "три вертикальные точки". В появившемся меню выбирал "поделиться" и дальше выбирал "мой телефон" (он привязан к моей учетной записи Windows). После обновления эти три точки пропали и я не могу найти их. Подскажите, пожалуйста, осталась ли функция "поделиться" страницей?

When I open a new tab I get a blank page with a search bar in the middle. I like that. But now when I begin typing in the search bar it jumps up to the address bar. My monitor is so big it is not in a position for me to see very well. I don't want my searches to jump up to the address bar.

How do I stop this?

For some unknown reason, my default fonts are not appearing correctly in Firefox. Here are the things I've tried:

1. I've checked the same sites with Edge and Chrome. 2. I checked the "Fonts and Colors" section of Firefox - both the regular and Advanced parts. 3. I've done the Firefox reset (I can't remember what it's actually called). 4. I've uninstalled/reinstalled. 5. I've deleted the Mozilla folder from my %AppData% folder. 6. I've signed out and uninstalled/reinstalled. 7. I've disabled all extensions and plugins. 8. I've made sure I have the newest version.

The only time it works correctly is when I run Firefox in Troubleshooting mode.

Since yesterday June 10, 2021, when I click on my bookmark for the New York Times, it loads the page from Feb 26, 2020. I have tried removing all cookies, restarting, rebooting, but nothing works. With Chrome I get the correct first page, but not with Firefox.

Is this happening to anyone else?

I am attaching a screen shot. It says the correct date at the top, but all the articles are from Feb 2020

Firefox opens in a small box at the top left of the computer screen about 1/9 the size of the viewing area. I have to click on the "maximize" icon (the square box(es)twice to get a normal viewing screen. Note: I am not referring to "full screen." This began after the last Firefox update. I have cleared the cache, cookies, data, etc. and startup cache and restarted Firefox and the computer. I haven't "Refreshed" Firefox, yet, because I don't want to go through the hassle of putting everything back together if it isn't going to work. How do I get Firefox to open in a "maximized" window?

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?


I am not an English speaker, so I apologize if there are various errors in the text.

Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

When trying to access the Google Developer Profile webpage on Firefox desktop, I encounter many errors. I can't sign in a lot of the times, sometimes I kind of get in but it says my profile isn't finished even though it is. I ended up creating it with MS Edge and accessing it that way after I had done a couple of the Kotlin training exercises to make sure my progress was getting saved. Many other times I get a 404 message; the errors I get vary a bit.

I have even tried starting Firefox in safe mode just to disable all extensions and add-ons, still with no luck.

It is only with Firefox Desktop that I am having this issue. When I use my Android device and bring it up on Firefox mobile, I don't have any of these issues. I see my profile and badges just fine.

I recently updated Mozilla to v 80.0 (64 bit) I have Mozilla set so that it does not search from the address bar, and I use the optional search bar.

When I create a new tab the default page contains a google search box, as per the attached screen shot. But if I type in that search box, the search term appears in the address bar, and then Mozilla tells me the address doesn't look right.

Why is the search term automatically entered in the address bar? Since I have the seaparate search bar my search term should appear there.

BTW I hate searching from the address bar. If I want to search I type it in the search box, or in the search box in new tab. Separating the search and address bars is one of my favorite features of Mozilla vs the other browsers.

I just updated to Firefox v.89.0. When I open up a new tab, I get my Bing search engine with a text box in the middle of the page. When I start typing in this text box, my typing automatically goes instead into the address text box. Prior to this version of Firefox, my typing stayed the in Bing (or Google, etc.) search text box. I've tried to look up solutions which sent me to About:config keyword.enabled and other settings but nothing I've tried fixes this problem. I want my search in the larger (Bing) search text box, not in the address (urlbar) text box which is much smaller text. As I said, prior to this version of FIrefox, my typing stayed in the search text box and didn't automatically get moved into the address text box. Please advise.

Since the most recent update to 89.0 opening pdfs in the browser, some websites and all log-in areas are using a super bold, unreadable font. PDFs also print out with this font. I tried changing the font manually, and both checking and unchecking the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box, but it doesn't help. I have no plugins installled This is the Facebook log in for example. The font is so poor you can't tell the 'i' from a lower case 'l'. The pdf sample is from opening it in the browser. If I download it instead, it opens in a normal, readable font. How can I fix this?

Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.
