Hi, I am facing issues on accessing different pages of the search bar fox example if I am accessing Wikipedia then some of its pages' preview is fine and for some of the pages are expanding its 100% preview level although I am not changing any settings nor I changed before ever. So this issue is becoming a headache now because most of the time I need to visit many times for my researches on kyoku knife but facing this issue for the past 2 months and was ignoring it but now I thought to ask here. Thanks,

I was trying to increase the size font on the browsing tabs and accidentally typed in 23 and now the entire browser screen is zoomed in so large I can't even scroll or undo what I've done. I had to do a force quit of the the browser. I tried deleting Firefox and reinstalled and it now still loads with zoomed in font. I can't even use Firefox as my browser. Matter of fact I'm having to submit this question on a different browser. Please advise.

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

Firefox just updated itself to 93.0 and now suddenly I have a big black border around the searchbar when it is focused. The userchrome "#searchbar { border: none !important; }" gets rid of the white border when the searchbar is not focused, but (just a stab in the dark) the userchrome "#searchbar[focused="true"] { border: none !important; }" does nothing when it is focused. How can I get rid of it? (It can be seen in the right-hand part of the attached image.)

Hello, until yesterday, I had the video downloader helper icon on the right hand side of my top list of sites near my Firefox account icon. Now in the 89.02 version, it's gone so I can't download directly movie trailers for example. How do I put that icon back on around there? Thanks Luc

What's the current instruction for deleting IRLs from the address bar pull down menu? This is not about the history, per se, of having been to any location. All I would like to do is delete several extraneous IRLs that are in the pull down menu which I don't need or rarely use, at least from that location.

Thanks.

I'm so unhappy now I don't know where to begin.

I was having trouble loading a website (lowes.com), continually getting an "access denied" error message. It occurred to me that I'd read somewhere that if you told Firefox to "forget this site," it might solve the "access denied" problem. I didn't remember how to do this, though, so I searched online and found a site that said that adding the "Remove" button to the Toolbar and clicking it would solve the problem. I dutifully added the "Remove" button, then, before clicking it, I triple-checked that the "Forget the last Five minutes" was selected and not any longer period of time. After all, I didn't want to lose everything!

Well, I did.

I had literally hundreds of tabs that I was working on open — they're all gone. All of my history — years worth — is missing. More things may have been deleted, but, to be honest, I'm afraid to check.

What did I do wrong? Or is the "Remove" button buggy?

And while I believe that everything that's missing now is irretrievably lost, if anyone has a hack to recover anything, I would be so, so grateful if you'd let me know.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I wrote this post up once, hit "Submit," then, after an interminable period of time, the screen went to a blank page. My original post has never appeared. Is there perhaps something wrong with my Firefox (which has been perfectly fine up until now)?

I've got a new computer I am setting up from scratch, and though I have set FF to sync settings, I'm still having to customize a lot. My bookmarks toolbar is crowded again with icons and I'd like those to go away. I don't mind other icons staying around on the tabs--that does help me navigate faster. I had this set up before, but lost the setting when I refreshed Firefox.

I have no screen capture whatsoever - no menu comes up with a right click, no screen capture icon is present to add to the menu. I used to have an add on but that disappeared and is no longer available. From your latest tips letter I think I'm using a different browser entirely! If you can help I'd appreciate it- as I say I used to have it in my browser but no longer. Now I have to screen capture and edit it in an external program- I'm sure you'll agree this is horrific to have to do.

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.

To the Mozilla team: Please give us back control over the line spacing in the drop down menus. When you have lots of items it is very annoying to have to scroll down several pages. The temporary fix with "browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled" was working very nicely. Why not leave it? Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I've installed the most recent Firefox version (Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit)) on a new laptop. In order to use the spell checker, I've downloaded several languages as per these instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker Nevertheless only English is displayed in the selection window (see attached screenshots).

Does anyone know how I can fix this to be able to choose between the installed languages?

Hi I have a problem where some malware - opicle.go2cloud.org, has been installed on my Windows 10 PC. When you click on a link, the malware "intercepts" the website and in most instances returns a "404 Not Found error". I did think the problem may be with Windows, but I used Edge as a browser and it worked OK....indicating the problem is with Firefox.

I've checked enabled extensions and plugins and can't find anything. I've also looked online for help but no joy. Any help here is appreciated Thanks
