"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

I've lost all my login passwords , bookmarks and every single thing that can be synced. For some reason I had to reinstall windows so I made sure that I had synced everything in Firefox. But when I reinstalled Firefox and logged in , everything was gone. There was nothing that I had synced and it wasn't there even in the restore option in the bookmark menu. Can anyone please help me to get my synced Items back?

Hi, Until recently the right click, 'save image as' method of saving a site image has worked flawlessly, now it goes into a death spiral & crashes Firefox. See image attached.

Am running Win10, 64 bit. Win is up to date. Firefox is 77.0.1 (64 bit)

Have run the diagnostics/help files suggested in the help files to no effect. Have similarly run Brave which is also doing the same thing whereas Edge doesn't seem to be affected.

Have deleted & re-installed both Firefox & Brave without change.

What am I not doing right?

Thanks

I'm running Firefox 68.9.0 ESR, and it keeps whining about an update being available. I don't care, because every time I update, one of the extensions I use every day is disabled without my permission. How do I get firefox to shut up about it once and for all? In other words, where is the "do not check for updates" command hidden, or, how else can I shut this thing up? I have, in the past, liked firefox, but it has, over the last few years, supported less and less of features I use daily, at a minimum, many times/day for most.

So how do I shut these annoying alerts about an update I have NO intention of installing off? "You can't" is not a valid answer. Nor is "just upgrade and lose half of the stuff (again) that you use all the time." Sorry if I sound angry, but these constant annoyances (and Thunderbird is doing the same---so same question for it here) are really getting on my nerves.

I have Firefox almost working the way it should. Still can't click in a bookmark toolbar bookmark and then click on "add bookmark here" like I could. That was one of those I used about 10--30 times per day, depending on what I was working on.

Thanks.

Since the last update [76.0 (64-bit)], whenever I enter a fullscreen mode in any media player on a website (e.g. Youtube) I can no longer Alt-tab normally, even if I close the fullscreen. Instead it takes 3 times to switch to another window - first press of the Alt-tab combination causes Firefox to lose focus but remain on top, 2nd press returns focus onto Firefox and then the 3rd one actually switches to another window.

This also occurs when simply switching to fullscreen on any other website as well (by pressing F11).

This also causes any newly open windows to be displayed under the Firefox window.

Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc minimizes the window normally and the issue does not occur then, however, it occurs again whenever I go fullscreen.

The problem occurs also in the Safe mode. Antivirus did not find any issues, so I don't believe the cause to be external.

OS is Windows 10 Home, 64-bit.

My website, www.orthodoxdelmar.org, won't load in Firefox but will load in other browsers. I get a white screen in Firefox. I haven't had a problem with any other website.

I've tried going directly to specific pages on the site. I've exited and restarted Firefox. I've restarted my laptop. I can't find any setting where I might have accidentally blocked the page.

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10. Laptop only 4 months old.

What am I missing?

Thank you.

I have two Windows 10 PCs with the Tree Style Tab extension enabled with default settings. One Firefox displays the sidebar by default when I open it, while the other must be opened each time. I've looked through the settings and can't find anything that would explain the different behavior.

I'd like the Tree Tab sidebar to always display by default when I launch Firefox. Any ideas as to why it doesn't?

I have over 400 passwords and maintaining them though the one at a time screen takes too much time and having to type my password every time i need to work with multiple saved passwords requires time I don't have.

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

My Add-ons are disabled and disappear from the tool bar everytime I try to use the privacy setting of "Never Remember History"

I spent a few hours going through the troubleshooting suggestions, safe modes, clean boots, (3) reinstalls, and I have isolated the problem down to this.

If I turn on Never Remember the icons disappear from the tool bar and the custom set up and they are disabled for all intensive purposes. They still appear as installed and active on the Add-on screens.

Is there a fix for this problem ?
