While in the Firefox browser I can no longer display the windows 10 toolbar by moving the cursor to the bottom of the page. This has always worked but started failing recently. Not sure if it was a Firefox update that changed things or something else. Moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen on all windows applications correctly pops up the taskbar. This only happens with the Firefox main screen and any web page linked to with Firefox. The Windows IE works fine.

I would like to know if the preferences (found in about:config or prefs.js) are explained in detail somewhere For example, what is browser.safebrowsing.provider.google.advisoryURL? What values can it have? Why can't preference entries be deleted (not just given a value of "") by the user? Thank you.

Never had this problem/glitch ever before! When I attempt to create a new listing and attach 'my' photos, it only imports blocks of color (see attached image)! The only thing I can possibly think what might be happening is I went to the Sherwin-Williams website https://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW9130-evergreen-fog and clicked on "Explore in Colorsnap Visualizer" - which did not work! (However, it does work in Safari and Opera!) We have tried everything to try to delete whatever we may have imported (a virus???), i.e. went to Firefox prefs/Privacy&Security and cleared/managed data (which continually repopulates so the clearing/managing seems to do nada); downloaded a new Firefox app...nothing stops this behavior in eBay (and don't know if this behavior shows up elsewhere). My eBay works fine in Safari and Opera with this situation.

Firefox would not finishing loading so I (stupidly) clicked "refresh firefox" not realizing it would loose add-ons, extensions, etc. It created an Old Firefox Data folder if that can somehow get it back to as it was instead of having to figure what add-ons I had & reinstall everything, etc. My Bookmarks still appear but I need the add-ons back!

My volume suddenly stopped working several days ago. I can hear the volume in my headset, but not through my speakers.

1. I have checked my settings in my computer 2. Its not a tab muted 3. Chrome and all over platforms work fine. 4. I have gone into settings and allowed all websites to play audio and video.

Nothing....can someone help me?

I just switched to FF and this is troubling.

Thank you SO much for you time.

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

It doesn't make sense. Maybe people want a new tab to open up to something besides a blank page or the Firefox home page. Other browser's give the user more freedom when it comes to this. I recently switched over to Firefox and would like to stay, but if this something that can't be fixed I might have to find a new browser again.
