I see no microphone on in the address bar for Firefox. I read that it is supposed to be (standard feature?) on the left side. How do I restore or enable this feature? For good measure, would someone please send me an image (snip& sketch?) of the address bar showing what this looks like. First time posting so I don't even know if one can attach or include images in a reply.

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

Window-M shortcut doesn't work for Firefox

I make frequent use of the Windows system-level keyboard shortcut Windows Logo button + M to go directly to the Windows desktop. Firefox does not respond to this keyboard shortcut by minimizing. How can I fix this? I already tried refreshing Firefox. This is a big enough issue to get me to abandon the browser, since I depend on keyboard shortcuts.

Your instructions under "help" say to click on "Firefox" and click on "preferences". When I click on Firefox the menu does NOT have "Preferences" in it. What's up with that?? And how do I clear the cache and cookies?

Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

Recently, one website (SF Chronicle) started automatically scrolling to the bottom of the page when I access an article. Occurs on no other sites nor on my other devices - only an my Dell desktop running windows 11 and the most recent version of Firefox.

When I follow a link to read an article I briefly see the heading but then it immediately scrolls down to the bottom of the page and I have to manually scroll back to the top of the page to read the article.

Can anyone help me out and others on this matter? several months ago appears FB decided to screw everyone over by arbitrarily forcing auto refresh. If you're reading something long and or have to step away for a moment it is gone.

Some have posted for chrome they have an extension that stopped it. The only one on FF does not work. I tried it, does nothing at all. Time for FF to fix this issues allowing you to turn it on or off at my will.

Thanks Mike

None of my installed Add-Ons will open. This occurred after running in "Refresh Mode" to correct a different problem.

The prior problem involved not opening bookmarks in a new tab even though the config:about entry was set correctly.

Is it possible there is a config:about entry that prevents any add-on from running?

Had it yesterday, happened this morning after the restart and just NOW, when I entered 6 lousy tabs, and they are NOT in the recently closed list either.. wups, gone, no tabs, setting has a check mark on open previous windows and tabs. Within 24 hours, lost the tabs three times with a non reported crash and Firefox closing itself with no warning.

I honestly do not think I am responsible to keep a backup of my browser history, I expect a browser to do that. I switched from Opera to Firefox not to long ago.. even Opera is a security risk.. at least it doesn't delete your tabs just for fun.

Very simple.. that happens once more and i am OFF this browser....
