How to quickly delete an entry from the address bar after the latest update?

Before I could use https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions#w_clearing-a-single-item-from-the-address-bar-history to do so, but today it doesn't work. Clicking the Delete button when trying this does nothing now at best, and at worst makes it so that I am only searching for the current address and hides everything else unrelated to that.

I need to disable E10s. It causes Firefox 68,0 (32bit) to display a Blank Page when Firefox is closed and I launch a Web Page from my Email Client. I have to have Firefox open first now before clicking on a Website url from the Email Client. This was the same problem I had two or more years ago when E10s was first implemented. I disabled it back then in about:config but Mozilla have disabled that option in Firefox 68. It's stated you can disable E10s using Environment Variable MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S - 1 but I'm not sure where to use that. I put it in my Windows 10 Environment Variables (System Properties/Environment Variables) but it did not work. I am using Windows 10 32-bit (Both Pro and Home) and the problem exists on all computers since upgrading to Firefox 68.0. I need to disable E10s again.

Starting within the past week, Firefox logs me out of Sync whenever I close it (and possibly also randomly when I don't log out).

My bookmarks and passwords are still present but I can't, for example, send/receive shared pages from other devices. "Send to another device" appears to work but doesn't actually send until I open the menu and "click here to sign in" (or whatever), then it *instantly* signs in.

I've never used a master password, and Privacy options are set to "Remember History". A couple times recently it's suddenly "forgotten" my device name, so my laptop shows up 4 or 5 times on other devices. I only recently was forced to switch to "stupid Windows 10" which is painful with only 2gb RAM, but I assume that's not related...

In "about:sync-log" there are plenty of "error-sync" log files (I'm not sure whether this is normal, or if there should be zero?)

Here my sync-errror file from today alone: https://pastebin.com/gsUb85tU -- ( potentially identifying data has been {**deleted**}. )

Hours and hours wasted trying to stop floating videos, pop-unders and overlays. DO NOT tell me to do about:config ! I did it all through exhaustive research. No effect. The solutions are all over the place and VERY repetitious. Every permutation of suggested FF fixes have been tried. Am a very savvy Windows user... It goes round and round and round and round and round in circles...

Daily I am plagued by floating videos, pop-unders and overlays. It never ends. Once again -- DO NOT tell me to do any more about:config -- it has all been tied an tested. All the settings are as suggested...

I'm a Firefox Developer Edition user. After upgrading my Firefox to 69.0b1, I see a problem about network and extension:

In the same network, the case when the browser stuck at loading the page content has been more frequent (especially on script-rich sites like Twitter). At that case, the extension menu is irresponsive (which means that when I click on it, it only shows a pop-up with nothing in it). Closing all loading tabs doesn't solve this. After a long time after the loading starts, the tabs suddenly continue to load and the extension pages come back responsive.

I have installed these add-ons. Ad blocker, password manager, and privacy browser.

After changing the settings in Firefox, my ad blocker and password manager disappeared from the menu bar. I see the add-ons in the extension list. Uninstalling, re-instaling the extensions do not bring the extension icons back. I tried to do a "re-install" using the Firefox "re-install" button, but my extensions did not show up again.

I had to completely uninstall Firefox (which does not remove Firefox settings from the computer ---- WHY?!) delete the registry entry, re-install Firefox and re-instsall the add-on extension to get them to show up again.

But when I go back into settings, make changes, the add-on extensions disappear again.

Which settings cause this?

For a few months I have been using a userChrome.css customisation which displayed a URL at the beginning of each drop down autocomplete result for the URL Bar (normally a useless page title is displayed).

Here is the thread where I got the script from (thanks for your help, jscher2000): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1256581

Today I upgraded to Firefox 68 and it stopped working. Autocomplete results now display website title first, which is completely unreadable and pointless.

My userChrome.css definitely works, because if I add the following line at the end:

  • { color: red !important; }

then the text becomes red.

Unfortunately changing the order of autocomplete results so that the URL is first, has no effect.


Here is the entire content of my userChrome.css

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

.ac-url-text  { color: black !important; font-size: 12px !important; }

Click on "View Gallery", the pop-up box appears, but it just shows the spinning dots not the photos. This happens with all the restaurant galleries on WDW's site not just this particular one. Works fine in Chrome.

I verified FF and Flash are updated, enabled all pop-ups, restarted in safe mode. No joy. Next troubleshooting steps?

I always have two tabs set to open on startup. Just recently, the tabs switched to two separate windows, each with the two tabs. When I close one, both close. I don't know why this happened , though undoubtedly I did something and forgot. I am not especially technical. I cannot get FF to go back to the single instantiation with the two tabs. Any help would be gratefully received.

I just noticed. this happens whenever I open a tab, it becomes a new window as well as being added as a tab.

this has been a problem for multiple years. its caused me not to use my monitor at 4k because i love firefox but cannot stand a white bar on the side. im over this problem, it has not been fixed in several years (3+) with any update. Edge, Chrome, and Opera do not do this, only Firefox. I have tried standard, beta, nightly, and they all do the same thing. It is a firefox problem. Not windows, gpu driver, or anything else. Scaling above 100% should be just fine. I am ready to be done with Firefox as you guys don't seem to care about the problem at all. I have seen multiple posts on here about the same problem, and nothing gets done. Please fix this problem soon. I am ready to switch back to chrome -_-
