I saw where this was a problem with Netflix, Amazon Video and other sites with Fire Fox and that one person even used professional version and still had the same problem.

What I cannot see is where he got the video codex that allow Netflix to work on Fire Fox version 88, let alone this newest version that Mozilla has created.

Hi,

I was previously using Windows 11 with Firefox, and changed back to Windows 10 as W11 has way too many issues on lot of points. But there was one thing I liked in Firefox on W11 is the scroll bars. They were narrow and discreete, and expanded when I hover with the mouse. I prefer that over the wide and very flat Windows 10 bar.

Is there a way to get this new bar on Windows 10 ?

Thanks in advance for your help, have a great day.

Is it possible for me to change the icons back without downloading third-party software?

I have installed IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my recent Lenova laptop..

But I cannot seem to be able to, or be allowed to, add IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my Firefox browser (100.0.1 version) but it appears immediately in my Edge browser next to the address box. I have used Firefox for many years and it is my default browser.

My bank (Santander UK) strongly recommend this addon as it provides encryption protection.

Has Moxilla barred it from Firefox but if not, how can it be added? There is no way I can see to add Santander UK (or any other UK bank) manually to Rapports list of protected bank sites.

Any clarity on this would be most appreciated. Hector Currie

if there's not already an option to autohide the bookmarks toolbar (like the address bar and tabs when in F11 mode [fullscreen])

can there be?

so like, on default the bookmark toolbar wouldn't show, but when I move my mouse into the specified area it appears (with the same animation as f11 mode)

 thank you,

let me know if i can already do that and if I'm just dumb.

 just to be clear, I want the tabs and url/address bar and tabs to always be there.

Actually might be cool to have options to autohide the tab bar too (separately).

 thanks again,

graham

Good day.

My use case is the following. I use Firefox Developer Edition for developing websites. Usually the development happens on a certain part of the page. Most of the times it is not on the top of the page, so you have to scroll down to it.

Sometimes when the page is refreshed a jump to the top happens. So then I need to scroll down again. It takes a lot of time and concentration away if it happens dozens of times a day.

It often happens after I did some changes to the files on the page. It usually does not happen when I refresh the page a couple of times (when I purpously want to reproduce this problem).

I did try running Firefox in Safe mode, but it didn't help.

What can be done to fix this problem on my side? Is this a bug in Firefox itself?

This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

before the update, i was using a custom theme, and it behaved similarly to the normal dark theme. as in, when i opened a new tab, it was dark, and stuff like that. now that firefox has crashed and i've had the update involuntarily forced upon me, i'm still using the custom theme, but now it behaves as the light theme. is there any way to fix this? i don't appreciate being blinded whenever i open a new tab or adjust my settings.

Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

Running Firefox 100.0 on Linux Mint 20.3 Mate 1.26 I've noticed that websites like my bank use a "sub window" that slides in from the right to display the running balances. Prior to version 100, this worked perfectly with dual scroll bars, one for the main window and one for the "sub" window. Now, with version 100, the "sub" window has no scroll bar. I can control the window by using the keyboard up/down arrows, but the scroll bar for the "sub" window is non existent. You cannot have access to my bank account, but you can duplicate the problem with Google. Simply search for say, a celebrity, click on one of the displayed images, and the window that displays on the right used to have it's own scroll bar, beside the bar that controlled the main window. Sub window scroll bar is now gone. It seems you folks violated one of the Cardinal Sins of Programming: IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT. Scroll bars worked great before, Not sure whose idea it was to "improve" them. Rolling a Firefox update backwards is a logistical nightmare. Is there a possibility of a fix coming out soon or are we to live with this as a "feature"??? Thanks for your time.

whenever I try to use a theme that defaulted to dark mode in the previous update, it defaults to light mode instead. for some websites this means that it displays in bright white. i need dark mode. even when i set the toolbar colour (which previously controlled dark/light in Firefox Colour) to black it's on light mode. how do I get dark mode back, i hate this. this theme (picture attached) used to be dark mode but now it defaults to light. how do i get dark mode back.
