I am not a sophisticated computer user and I have some cognitive problems due to age and illness so please be as simplistic as possible with any response. I was trying out new features and now have the private browsing icon on the bottom bar on my screen. The color purple triggers strong anxiety for me so I just want to get that off my screen. I won't be using private browsing so I want to remove it. I tried to drag it to the recycle bin but couldn't get rid of it that way. Please help me remove that icon from ever being on my screen. Thank you.

I've now installed Firefox several times including at least one clean install. I've worked through all the support pages on how to fix the problem, including system scan using MalwareBytes, and removing extensions, but the problem persists.

To be more precise, sometimes it just crashes immediately leaving the notices shown in the image. Sometimes it opens and stays for a while but then crashes with a similar notice.

Crash reports:

bp-945b32f1-96b3-4233-ba19-03c310221026 26/10/2022, 12:02 bp-2af09469-4ba1-4531-8406-5e0f70221026 26/10/2022, 12:02 bp-d7d56904-ca94-4397-812d-a39260221026 26/10/2022, 09:55 bp-7e88f783-318e-4401-b825-89a810221024 24/10/2022, 18:50

Hope someone can help.

Every time I log into a website, it asks if I want to save the password, and I click save, but it doesn't work. When I go into my account and try to add a saved login, it says "An error occurred while trying to save this password" and at the top a small bar appears saying I need to enter my primary password to log in, despite the fact that I'm already logged in and when I click the log in button it just goes back to the logins and passwords page and nothing has changed. I've tried quitting and restarting, changing all my preferences, nothing works. I've googled everything I can think of with no answers to my issue. Please help or I'm going to give up on Firefox and never use it again!

On startup this morning, I saw the Colorways options. I tried a few, but decided to keep my Dark theme.

One of the first set of Colorways options was "no option," a circle with a slash. On the new Firefox View > Colorways page, that is no longer an option. I tried Settings > Manage Colors, to no avail.

The Firefox I'm using now has screwed up colors. I want to revert to the Firefox I had on startup. How do I do that?

Hi my OS Linux mint. 20 Running FF 106.0.1 The problem i have is editing large pdf ie multiple pages. I seem to be able to modify 1 page and that saves just fine. But if i try and modify multiple pages of the same pdf no changes get saved.

I also tried print to pdf and that came back with errors. I ended up having to split the pdf into separate pages and do each page individually and then re merge them

Any suggestions please

Below I show screen shots of the blank page on firefox which has the firefox logo all but diminished under the private browsing mask. It's the same on the start bar but of course much smaller.

It makes it look like the new brand of firefox is the private browsing mask (I am always in that mode except for netflix).

I prefer the firefox logo and I surely don't need to know when I'm in private browsing on the start bar. The home page I don't care about, but I know I'm in private browsing cause the upper area of firefox says private browsing right on the browser itself. I have no idea why we would need be made aware that we're in private browsing, it seems the opposite would be more helpful.

I'm writing because I don't like this new firefox tiny icon with a big purple mask over it. Wanted to let you know.

If you're changing brands or something? To a purple mask? And private browsing isn't all that great.

The image on the left below is the new firefox icon on the start bar. The one on the right is on the blank page which I don't care about at all but it's just a bigger picture.

Who/what is firefox?

I love firefox, but just saying.

Thanks for hearing.

Hi all,

Firefox is crashing when launched, but not all the time. After a couple of tries, it will launch without issue. This is a brand new Windows 11 Pro installation with all updates. I have run some windows debloating scripts like privacy.sexy and WinDebloatTools, thinking that might have something to do with it, but not sure where to start in troubleshooting this. Any help with where to start looking would be great. Thanks!
