My Tabs toolbar used to be under my Links toolbar. It is now above the Address toolbar.

How do I put my Tabs toolbar back where I want it (not where Firefox arbitrarily decided to put it)?

Alternately, How do I go back to FireFox 70.0.1?

System: Windows 8.1, 64-bit

              FireFox 71, 64-bit 

Note: My laptop (Windows 8.1, 64-bit) has Firefox 70.0.1 (but wants me to "update" (sic)). It has the tool bars in my preferred order. I'm not about to "update" until I know how to fix FireFox 71.

As the title says I cannot play any videos on Twitter and have problems when I try to play videos on other websites. I cannot get Firefox to play videos in 60fps anywhere. Youtube won't even give me the option. 60fps doesnt work on Twitch.tv either. Playing videos on Twitch on Firefox is a nightmare in general. Super slow and laggy.

Neither of the above problems are there for me on Chrome. Videos work properly and in 60fps on Chrome.

I have already tried disabling hardware acceleration and have tried running Firefox in safe mode. Neither option worked. I'm getting kinda sick and tired of having to switch over to Chrome every time I wanna watch a video. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

I had previously posted the "Why doesn't Firefox provide the option of tabs below menu bar?" at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276795

I believed that the issue was solved by cor-el at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274416#answer-1279083

However, I have since discovered that this fix does not work in Private Browsing mode. Tabs still overlap the bookmark toolbar as they did with regular browsing before applying the aforementioned fix.

Does anyone have a modification to the userChrome.css file or tabs-on-bottom.css file referred to earlier which will place tabs below the menu/bookmark toolbar when using Private Browsing as well?

After 72.0.2 I started to notice performance problems with my firefox. Symptoms are similiar to my multiprocess problems I had after it was added. I managed to avoid it for some time by limiting processes number to 1 (which was 4 in reality)

Long story short: when you open new tab firefox has to create new process which is somewhat correlated to your PC performance (however it hangs up even on 4800MHz i5 with nvme pci-e 3.0 x4 ssd so....). When this process is already created and you enter different website it is smooth - firefox does not have to create another process until you open NEW TAB or it reaches its limit (from 1 to 8 processes/tabs) - set via settings. If limit was set to more than 1 I had problems with hanging up for few seconds until I reached limit - so if it was set to 4 I opened 1 tab and 3 links I clicked (with new tabs) slowed firefox down for me, but 4th, 5th etc. were fine. So I set it to 1 permanently and problem disappeared - every tab opened as fast as before.

But now problem seems to have returned. I still have 1 in my settings but symptoms are pretty much the same (but there are only 4 processes). However browser is not hanging up - it seems like connection is. It does nothing - "waiting for xxxxxx" in lower left corner and then after 1-2s page actually starts to load. It is present on every website I visit, no matter how many tabs or windows I open.

So my question is - what did you break in this firefox version? Previously it was youtube, now it is all sites...

Hello!

Since some weeks, I'm getting really often crashes of tabs, and I don't know why. I tried:

- deactivation of all add-ons
- repair of Firefox with the repair option
- uninstall, reinstall
- suppression of all add-ons
- deactivation of options "Use recommanded performance settings" and "use hardware acceleration"

I don't know what to do next, the problem remained through all the stages of this process. Here are my 5 last crashes reports:

- bp-1a94f885-71ec-4d39-a100-bce0d0200125
- bp-493d70b3-7de1-47d0-85e4-15d9b0200125

Sick and tired of asking! Community Volunteers are mostly a dumb bunch! Now that I have attention, why-oh-why does Firefox usually (but not always) whenIi want to print 3 or more pages, whether I try to Print or I go into Print Preview, Firefox only gives me the first page (and sometimes that is empty, except for the header) and then it give me the next (or first) page, then I get the 3 of 3 pages - even if there is more! Have to go to Chrome or another browser to print the whole 4, 5, 6, (or however) many pages. I do not think it is a 'settings' issue on my desktop...or any of my laptops. What is wrong with Firefox? This page, for example, https://www.metopera.org/season/in-cinemas/2019-20-season/agrippina-live-in-hd?utm_source=HD%20Porgy%20and%20Bess&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1-20LiveinHDPorgyandBess&utm_content=version_A is about 6 pages long (if I view in MS EDGE or Windows Explorer (which MS says should no longer be used!) - it's 6 pages, but if I go to Print in Firefox (using Win 8.1 on a recently overhauled desktop (or on a brand new Win10 HP laptop) I get the first page and page 2 of 2 is a header oly. Same in Print Preview. FIREFOX DON'T WORK!!!

Hi

Firefox 72.0.2 Win 8.1

When I open a new tab, the whole page doesn't load until I select that particular tab.

Is there any way of loading the content of a tab completely without having to select it, in the same way as the content would load if I open in a new window instead?

Foe example, if I were to load an Amazon page in a new tab, some of the content loads, but the page waits for the tab to be selected before loading everything else.

Many thanks

Mr M
