When I have Firefox minimized (with several tabs) and I click on its icon in the taskbar, FF does not immediately open, but little icons for each of the FF tabs show and I have to choose one of the tabs before FF fully opens. This is very annoying. If the program were to fully open, the one tab I was recently using would open and I could continue with my work. Is there any way to make FF fully open when I click on the FF icon in the taskbar? I am using FF 118.0 (64 bit) in Windows 11. Thanks for your help. Jerry

PS: the icon below shows what happens when I am clicking the FF icon and shows the two tabs open in FF.

Hello, I'd like to disable the new translate prompt in Firefox. While I greatly value Mozilla's commitment to innovation, I've found this new feature to be somewhat disruptive to my user experience.

I speak different languages and therefore use websites in multiple languages and having this prompt appear multiple times is a bit annoying. I can’t imagine being the only user with this issue. It’s very irritating.

I didn't find a way to disable this feature in the settings. Is there another way? I know I can modify it by adding languages that I don't want to have translated but I'd like to disable it entirely. I know this might be a non-issue to some people but I just hate this popup and I don't want to see it again. Thank you very much!

Hello, today my Firefox offered me to try the "Translate this page" beta function within the browser. I agreed but now want to disable/delete this option and don't know how. I can uncheck the option to always translate the page in the menu settings after clicking on the icon in the bar. But I don't see an option to delete this add-on (it's not listed in the add-on section either). How can I get rid of it? Best, Manu

Apparent duplicate password manager

I use Firefox and ESET Antivirus on Windows 10 I am using the Firefox password manager with a Primary Password. When I open a window to a bank or other sensitive site ESET Antivirus Banking and Payment Protection automatically opens a new Protected window. The password manager then fills in the login details for the site or offers a choice from a listbox if I have more than one login for that site without me having to provide a password for the password manager. Clicking on "View Saved Logins" from the listbox opens the password manager Search Logins window also without me having to enter a Primary Password. I can now view Usernames AND Passwords without having to enter any Primary Password. This appears to be an out of date copy of the passwords in a unprotected file since it is missing a few recently created entries. When using an standard Firefox browser window everything seems to work as expected with the Primary Password being required to activate the Pasword Manager and the recently created entries are present. One other point which may be relevant is that when viewing the same username/password in both the valid and the duplicate versions the window addresses are identical. This suggests to me that the Password Manager keeps the username/password data and a list of that data as separate enties and that what I have is actually one set of data with two seperate lists of the data. This makes me nervous about trying to delete anything from the unprotected list in case I am deleting the original data. This state of affairs may have come about when I was setting up Firefox Sync and inadvertantly Sync-ed Password Manager with Primary Password turned off. I have since turned off Sync but with no effect on th problem. Is there any way of deleting this apparent additional password list? The alternative seems to be to just uninstall Firefox and ESET Antivirus and re-install and hope that all the data is cleared out in the process and the re-import a password file.

I can access all my desktop bookmarks on my android phone, but when I bookmark on my phone is doesn't sync to the PC.

- I have sync turned on both - Bookmarks toggled on both - I am signed in - I have clicked "sync now" on both devices multiple times - I have un-bookmarked and re-bookmarked pages multiple times - I open up "search bookmarks" on PC and type the mobile website name and nothing comes up - I try and edit the location of the mobile bookmark into "other" or "toolbar" etc and that doesn't make it appear

Out of the blue, I can no longer download files using the download arrow. I used to get the prompt asking where to download the files but now don't get anything. I'll get a zip.part file on my desktop, where I have my downloads saved, but that's it. I've updated Firefox, restarted, uninstalled/reinstalled and nothing works.

I use this addon

Select After Closing Current

But apparently I'm not using it correctly.

When I close a tab, it defaults to the tab on the right, which, to me, IMO, is counter intuitive.

And just as bad, when I restart the browser, it opens to the tab on the right much of the time, instead of the current active tab.

Is there something I can do can do about this?

For the past few days, the YouTube website has behaving unusually in Firefox. The volume and play/pause controls don't work. The picture in picture mode does not work. And most importantly, the search bar is broken. Whenever I type something and click the search button or press enter, the value entered disappears and I have to type it all again, only that this process goes on for infinite number of times and so, I can't even search for anything on YouTube.
