Hi! I am hiding the toolbar when browsing web pages to maximize the screen spaces. However, when playing full-screen videos (all HTML5 videos), the lowest part of the video are missing. It seems like that part are squeezed out of the screen. If I uncheck the "hide toolbar" function, it fixed. See the lowest part of the attached image.

Honestly it seems that the Firefox development team does not care about the interests of users, currently I need to use 2 browsers because one of them does not have an option to create shortcuts to the sites I frequent

As you can see in the attached image of my old Overflow Menu, I had it customized with many buttons/extensions I often accessed throughout each day.

With the advent of FF ver 109, this functional flexibility has been completely lost. Now, there's no way to choose what buttons and to sort them in the Overflow Menu. In my view, an egregious loss of convenience and efficiency.

Please, bring back the full functionality of the previous Overflow Menu!!!

Hi there,

I upgraded my Mac Desktop OS to Ventura 13 yesterday and now my Firefox browser is not working. It opens very briefly and then the window closes immediately. The Firefox program is still open in my dock, but when I click on the icon, the Firefox window only opens for the briefest moment and then immediately closes again.

I tried to fix it: I have uninstalled and re-installed the latest version of Firefox twice and have rebooted my computer twice.

Has anyone has similar experiences and/or ideas for solutions?

Thank you!

Firefox applied an update and now there is a puzzle piece icon on my toolbar for extensions at the top right. I have tried to edit my toolbar but that icon can't be moved, removed, or hidden and it's where my bookmarks icon usually is which is messing with my work flow a lot. I work very fast and have years of muscle memory of clicking the first icon at the top right to open bookmarks and now I keep opening extensions.

I contacted my bank to find out why their site no longer worked with Firefox and they had me refresh my Firefox settings, and now I'm not able to log in to certain pages using my passwords. The login pages say either my username or password is incorrect but they're not. When I click on "Forgot password" and give my email address, it says they'll send me an email to reset my password, but the email never comes.

How can I get my old settings back?

Thanks

Greetings from North-East of France, since a few weeks ago I'm seeing a (sort of) pop-up window suggesting to login with a Google account (see the screenshot attached). I've done some internet search to find out how to get rid of it, but the only suggestion I get is to modify an option in a Google account. However, I do not have a Google account! How to get rid of this disturbing pop-up? I already use Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin, yet Google passes through them! Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.

Hello, No, this is not Mozilla Discourse forum, and this it not the place to ask this question, however, I do not have a choice.

I cleared all cookies in Firefox, and relaunched, and then I could not log back into the forum, there is only one button, (login/signup); for some reazon, I prompts me to create a new account, instead of login into the account that I already have.

I tried Firefox, I tried Brave, I tried Epiphany browser (Ubuntu). I can not log back in.

Logical next step is trying to contact Mozilla's discourt support, however, there is not a way to contact support, not an email, not a phone number, anywhere on the website. I only found an actual street address, for me to send a .... letter?. Is this on purpose?.

I do not mean to be a Karen, but, it is silly, So, can a gentle soul share an email address to the discord support team, so I can try to solve my issue appropiately?

Thank you.

After a long time, I've decided to reinstall Firefox on my PC. Upon installing it, I got the error "Your firefox profile cannot be loaded. it may be missing or inaccessible." I cannot start Firefox.

After looking online, I found this article on the support page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible

I tried opening the profile manager, but can't get to it since Firefox won't start. It also is not accessible through using "firefox.exe -P" in the run dialog box.

So then I followed the directions and found my existing profiles.ini which pointed to my profile file. Wondering if it got corrupted, I changed the file extension to profiles.iniold and moved the whole mozilla folder to my desktop. Firefox continued to give me the same error message.

Finally I uninstalled firefox, deleted the mozilla folder under %appdata%, deleted the Mozilla folder under %programdata%, and deleted any mention of Mozilla in regedit. I finally reinstalled a fresh copy of firefox... and I got the same profile cannot be loaded error.

Is there somewhere that I'm not seeing that needs to be deleted to finally get a fresh install? I don't care about the original profile and am happy to start from scratch, but have no idea what I can still do in order to get to that point. Any suggestions on what I can do to completely remove any remnants of the original install from years ago?

Hi, For about the last month or so, the Yahoo mail tab closes itself after I click on an email attachment to open the download dialog box. This happens exactly 30 seconds after clicking on the attachment, whether or not I go on to open or save the attachment. It does not happen if I merely 'preview' the image. I don't know if all attachment types behave the same, but it applies at least to jpg and pdf files. The tab can be reinstated via History/Recently closed tabs.

Firefox does not crash, and there are no crash reports. In other respects this is similar to a previous post by 'eladopoulos' on 4/30/22, 8:17 AM (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375635).

Using Safe mode makes no difference. I had set browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, but reseting to True makes no difference. Thanks in advance.

When you open a web site, a tab is created. And, obviously, if you have more then one site open, they're all there. But I just noticed that with the fourth tab, they stop being visible, and there's arrows on the far left (and right). So if you have five or six pages open and you want to go back to the first tab/web site, you have to hit the arrow on the far left to make that tab visible, and then click on the tab.

So they went from one step/click to two. Why do they do this? If it aint broke, don't fix it!

I don't want it like this. I want all the tabs there, without any arrows. Just like it always was. How do I get it back to what it was?
