Hi, I love my recommended by pocket on my new tab or when firefox opens. Yesterday Firefox asked me if I'd like to try a new setting disabling all cookies, I did opt in. After that my recommended by pocket disappeared. I opted out of disabling all cookies, but it hasn't reappeared. I checked about:config and the setting for recommendations is true. Please help!

The rendering issue is not seen with Chromium (Linux) or Safari (Mac). I have no alternative for Solaris :-(

I have read the tips etc, reset everything, but there is no difference.

This has been happening for a a couple of years, getting progressively worse, It has got so bad, I have stopped using FF on all but Solaris now. (and I have been using it for a long long time).

I need someone to direct me to what information/data is needed to be collected so someone can comment. Do you have any favourite page load test web sites that I can send out put to you from?

Hello,

I have 3 different profiles and I'd like to have a visual indication of the currently active profile. I've found that using themes is the best option (a red theme for production, green for test, grey for default) but I can't prevent Firefox Sync to sync the active theme between my profiles.

I have set both services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID and services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false and restarted all my Firefox profiles.

After a while, all windows/profiles are synced to the same theme.

Are those settings really read by Firefox Sync ? I'm on Windows 10, Firefox 91.10.0esr (32-bit)

Thanks in advance for your help !

Hello,

I have been asked to upgrade our Firefox ESR in our VDI from 32bit to 64bit. We are using Window server 2012R2.

When I uninstall 32bit and install 64bit I dont get any errors and the program runs, but if I try to go to any website I dont get any page or error message. If I do a search in the URL Bar it does give you the end URL for the search engine, but we dont see anything. I have uninstalled the program, removed AppDATA folders, ProgramDATA and Reg keys related to Mozilla, but still get the same result. If I use another user account I get the same issues.

Could some recommend a fix ?

FF 78.0.1 Can't get tabs on bottom to work - despite fact that .css file is working on another computer

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

I'm on an iMac running mac OS Catalina (version 10.15.5). Using Firefox (78.0.2) the Centriq login page (https://app.mycentriq.com/) has stopped loading recently. Firefox has been updated since I last logged in successfully. The login page does properly load using Safari web browser. So, I believe something has changed with the recent Firefox update that is preventing the Centriq login page to load. The one thing I have tried, but did not work, is to turn off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the login page. All help is appreciated. Thank you.

jscher2000,

"Do you mean search engines appear even before you start typing anything to search?"

Yes, as soon as i bring the cursor to the Search box. the drop down box appears.

I opened my Home page and all of the boxes under Firefox Home Content I had unclicked during set up.

My home page is set to blank page and New Tabs the same.

I turned them back on to do as you described but the three dots never appeared in the corner and everything remained the same so i turned them off again.

Thanks for trying to help.

Hello,

Last night I went to bed and all my bookmarks were there. Today I woke up and all the bookmarks are gone on my laptop and the open tabs, add-ons etc. I am signed in. Restoration does not help (last backup is with today date). But on my smartphone I see them in bookmarks-> desktop bookmarks. How do I save them? I really don´t want to lose them.

Thanks a lot for any advice,

Hello,

Since about 3 weeks, Firefox hang on certain websites while trying to load them, when un-ticking all "Firefox Home Content" items. When those things are ticked, everything is fine. Wasn't happening before. Often a gray geared wheel appear and at other times only the "tab text" appear, please see the attached screen shot. I'm able to click on "File Edit View...", the items present on the bookmark toolbar, "Refresh", "Home" but the action is executed only when Firefox un-hang. I'd already get a look at Firefox help tutorials but there was nothing about "The "Firefox Home Content" can cause Firefox to hang".

It take me about 10 minutes to load this current page. "Firefox Home Content" are not ticked right now.

Thanks,

Guillaume
