I have the firefox browser in dark mode, and all my bookmarks/folders on the toolbar are white. It would be easier if they stood out a little easier to identify them with color (such as say trip advisor is in green so I can pick it out easier). Usually there's an icon before the name for most links (but not if it's a folder), such as google maps has a rainbow G in a white circle. If I could add an icon before the name of the link that would be great, but it would be even better if the words on different links could be another color.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, i have a website where i have to delete a certain element in order for the website to display correctly. I am doing this by right-clicking on the element, selecting "Inspect Element" and then i simply click delete node and close the object browser. Since i visit that website regularly i wonder if there is any way to make the object browser to remember that i want that element to be deleted on every visit to this website? Or do i need an Addon for that?

Thank you in advance and best regards!

See subject. I swear I think this works correctly sometimes, but other times (majority) it does this.

Yes I know about middle click (which works as expected) but considering this should work correctly I'm curious what is going on.

This is FF on Win 10.

Any ideas?

I used Firefox for over a year, suddenly after an update I imagine a bottom bar has appeared, like "find" and every time I try to type anything in a search bar it jumps to the bottom that becomes pink... SOOOOOOO annoying. How can I get rid of it forever???? Sorry, do not know a proper name for this trouble!!! I wish it was clearly stated if I want this "update" and how I can get rid of it. I stopped updating anything at all at this stage! It drives me absolute bonkers, I am thinking of deleting firefox completely! Yes I use windows7 and love it, do not want to switch to 10. I have no clue what version of firefox I am using, I was updating when prompted, but fed up with this pink bar, like it sits in my livers now!!!

Hello all, I've yet to test this in great detail. But, it would appear that Firefox is running super slow. It's using about 3GB of ram out of my 16GB (Seems low imho).

When opening websites like Facebook, videos, the message box etc lags. On YouTube videos can lag, and other sites that have elements that popup etc seem to lag.

I only run an AdBlock, and it's even disabled on the pages that lag. These issues aren't present in Google Chrome or Edge. In fact, Facebook is super responsive in Chrome.

I've tried various things to solve it mentioned on this forum, including entering some urls to access more advanced settings which hasn't worked.

Thanks alot.

I run Firefox 52.9.0 32bit ESR as main browser - for reasons to do with our server I also run under a separate profile Firefox 68.12.0 ESR 32 bit for testing

When using 52.9.0 whenever I change a bookmark, it ALSO updates the file in the V68 profile folder! I have no idea why as both profiles should be separate. The time stamps are the same.

I need to keep the V68 profile completely isolated from the V52 so need to try and stop this unusual updating!

Both profiles are NOT local and located in F:drive under different folders. Both versions are started as:- "I:\Firefox New\firefox.exe" -P "Firefox New" and "I:\Firefox\firefox.exe" -P "Firefox Old" and the profiles.ini file points correctly

Any suggestions please - and no I can not update them as needed for specific purposes!

So what i've noticed lately is that when i play a video on youtube while on fullscreen, sometimes when i exit the fullscreen the screen goes black for a few seconds. In the meanting i can hear the audio being played in the background. After 1-2 seconds audio becomes choppy and then it completely stops and then my computer restarts. I haven't tested that with any other browser since i've been only using firefox for years. It doesn't happen all the time but i can happen randomly. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration but it didn't do anything. All the drivers are up to date. Anyone encountering the same problem? Any possible solutions would be more than welcomed.

I'm an author/writer of cozy mystery/suspense/crime/thrillers and adventure short stories. I do a LOT of research and participate in online forums for background for my books and to build my brand. I have been using Mozilla Firefox for almost 20 years and I love it. But I may be forced to change because of the two serious problems I'm having. Explanations below:

  1. 1. There are certain regular sites I go to that require me to choose images to verify I'm not a robot or click on "I'm not a Robot" in reCaptcha. I can't because those images and/or the box for eCaptcha don't show up. They're just not there. I have to sign out and sign into Microsoft Edge which I absolutely hate. If I have to change, it will probably be Google Chrome.
  1. 2. Also, many of the sites I use regularly don't show up anymore. All I can see is text down the left side. None of the images are there and I can't tell where to click to go to different pages.

This has all been going on for months. I had hoped your updates would fix this, but they haven't. I don't want to change browsers, but I may have to because I MUST be able to verify my identity and be able to see some important sites I use regularly to post comments, etc.

I hope you can help me. I'm 85 and have absolutely no technological computer knowledge so please don't send me a lot codes because I would have no idea what to do with them. I pray this can be fixed.

I have a Dell PC and am using Windows 7, 32-bit.

Thank you, Gail S. Kibby White.

Is there a way for me to extend the drop-down window on the Firefox browser from the hamburger icon? I don't enjoy having to scroll down through the menu to have to access things like Options or Help when the menu drop-down could just drop down further so I don't have to scroll down. Is there a way I can customize this, or no?

Attached is a screenshot of the menu I'm talking about, with a circle

Over the past week, each time that I close out of Firefox normally, 30-60 seconds later a Crash Report dialog appears. I don't see any indication that Firefox has actually crashed - everything looks to be working properly. If I try to send the Crash Report to Mozilla it goes into an endless loop without actually sending.

I'm running a current version of Win 10 and Firefox indicates it is up-to-date.
