RE:

   At the top left of the New Tab page, hover over the weather information and click the configuration icon IG page actions.
   Click Change Location.
   Enter the new location in the field and select the desired location from the drop-down. 

Appears to be phantom ways. There are isn't anything like as described at all. Unable to change my locations. .Your STUIPD weather thing is using my VPN location not my real location and I'm unable to find or make any changes. WHY come up with a big lie saying you can change the location? I'd like to add the screen shot, I guess you also limit what can be uploaded while other places allow WORD with the picture in it OR PDF etc.

I keep getting rerouted to a malicious McAfee Antivirus software page stating my computer has 5 viruses and my Mcafee subscription has expired, etc. I don't have that software & NEVER plan to use it. How do I block the URL from loading? This should be SIMPLE in the Mozilla settings, can't find anything regarding web filters or page blocking.

I've been searching for how to disable the little dropdown menus with emails you could use for a field, but I can't find anything.

I made a clean install and found someone that had the solution, but I can't find this post anymore no matter how much I search.

There's no forms and autofill section for me under the privacy section of settings, whether it's been removed through updates or it's a bug for me (which would be weird if it were both the case on my current PC and the old one) I don't know.

All I know is that the solution involved going to about:config and changing a setting in there.

I don't want to just delete the entry by doing down arrow and delete.

Any help is appreciated!

Despite reading almost 100 questions about this exact issue asked for years, there still seems to be no answer, and no fix to get this function to work properly.

Checking the box should completely remove the drop box for location, and the entire point is that it should ask you where to save every file,instead of defaulting.

Some files appeared on my Desktop folder. when i erased them my Tabs and profile got deleted. then when i log in my profile the Files return on the Desktop folder.

my problem is why is this happening?. Firefox was installed on default installation drive, and it has been 8 months or more but only now this is happening.

i don't tweak anything on this browser, just browsing and consuming content.

I've been having this problem for some time, and it's honestly annoying me so much that I'm ready to pitch Firefox and badmouth it all over the Internet. Every single time I attempt to access the File Save or Open dialogues boxes from Firefox, as is necessary when uploading or downloading and image file, Windows Explorer (Windows 11) crashes.

There is no evidence of this in the system logs, but it's obvious that Explorer is crashing and relaunching, as evidenced by the disappearance and reappearance of the Taskbar, during which Firefox becomes completely unresponsive. This is dramatically slowing down my workflow to the point where it makes Firefox frankly unusable for most daily tasks.

The problem still exists when I remove all extensions from Firefox. The problem still exists when I restart the machine. The problem does *not* exist when I start Firefox in Safe Mode, but this is obviously not a workable solution. The problem does *not* occur with any other software, only Firefox. I am running Firefox 122.0 (64-bit) on Windows 11 Professional 22H2 Build 22621.3007, but the problem has been occurring for a long time, months. The system is a Gigabyte Z690 UD AX with an Intel Core i5-12600K, 32 GB DDR5 PC4800 RAM, and a Samsung 980 Pro 500 GB NVMe SSD.

Every time I right click and select "Open Link in New Tab" Firefox is not opening this new tab next to the current tab. It instead moves this new tap to the end of all the tabs (of the current website). This is an annoying behavior, I have to go all the way to the end of the tabs to look at the name page that I just opened. How do I fix this behavior?

Hi, some years ago sending tabs to a device worked fine, but for some time now it stopped working. Is it just me or is it a general bug? All my devices are listed in my account. It also shows that they are updated frequently. I tried sending from Windows-Firefox to Android-Firefox and back. Nothing worked. What can I do? Best regards, Eric

Hello all,

I recently switched to Firefox and so far I am loving it. I'm having one issue though. I sell items on Ebay for a living and when I am filling out the field for "item specifics" every time I enter the field the magnifying glass icon is overlapping the text field, and it blocks the first couple letters I type. I'll provide a screenshot below. I've tried everything to fix it but I'm basically out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm fine with removing the magnifying glass icon all together or just having it position correctly.
