I'm trying to remove some old usernames from appearing in the dropdown box when clicking on it. Sites that use a username rather than an email (Steam for example).

I've searched and tried delete, shift+delete, function+shift+delete, etc., etc.

The usernames do not appear anywhere in the history, the saved passwords and logins, etc. I'm at a loss.

Not the end of the world if I can't remove them, it's just frustrating as heck. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi all,

First time posting here, I've been using Firefox for years with no problem but over the last year or so (I can't remember exactly when) firefox starting taking longer to open.

It's not taking forever, only like 6 seconds, but it used to be instantaneous, as every other program on this pc is and it's bugging me. The window opens immediately but it's all greyed out, nothing loads and the blue mouse wheel spins above it.....again, only for 6 seconds. Specs: i9-9900k @ 5Ghz 32GB RAM Windows 10

I've tried every step in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems this guide, no effect :-(

HELP!

Windows 7 Pro using Firefox 92.0. going from Mozilla homepage to my homepage in firefox I click on the Home icon upper left corner. This is causing my favorites to be separated by one line each and colors are now gone. It appears that the Mozilla homepage is causing something. It has happened 5 days ago and I rolled the OS back. It now happened last night.bold text. I really don't want to roll the OS back again. I guess I could roll it back and then tell myself "don't ever go to Mozzila again". Any suggestions ?

In the Network tab of Developer Tools, when I try to resize the columns of the list of requests:

1. The column will not resize. 2. The cursor gets "stuck" as the `ew-resize` 3. Clicking on the headers selects the item "under" it instead of sorting by that column.

I have to close and reopen devtools to make the mouse cursor work correctly again, but I still can't resize columns.

Additionally, the "Resize column to fit content" option in the context menu will resize one column but leave another really huge. I'm trying to make the "timings" column big enough to be useful, but these problems combined make that impossible, it seems.

This happens on multiple computers and has for quite a while. Is this a known issue? Is there a known fix?

I tried to post this to the devtools discourse forum instead of here, but that site wouldn't work for me due to CORS errors.

I got the new update (92.0) this morning and now I have an issue with my mouse. Previous versions of Firefox was outputting my 5th mouse button as a hotkey for closing tabs, but now it's functioning as a back button. My scroll-wheel button (Button 3) now closes tabs. How can I restore their original functions? Can it be done through about:config?

Exactly what it says on the tin. For the record, I've followed the instructions listed here and set my google search to not open up new searches in new windows ("tabs)" but the problem continues. I think it's a firefox one but I can't find the about:config setting to fix this if it even is that.

Hello friend, I would like to make the title of inactive icons, as well as "File, Edit, View..." while as in the first screenshot attached, yet keeping the text of the right-click pop-out menu black with white background, as in the second screenshot. It seems that the 'background tab text color' controls both parameters. Maybe someone knows how to split them apart?

Thank you ;)

Former Chrome user, finding my way in Firefox.

For some reason the shortcut ctrl + shift + p does not work when I use the left shift key on my keyboard.

When I use the RIGHT shift key with ctrl and P it DOES work. When I use the LEFT shift key with ctrl and P it does NOT work. I have a Coolermaster keyboard. I never noticed any difference between right shift and left shift? Does Firefox interpret them as different keys?

OS is Win7-x64, graphics Intel HD Graphics on Haswell pentium G3220 with latest available driver.

Since version 89.0 or 90.0 (not sure which) following webpage rendering issues appeared on my machine: - page loads ok, but when I scroll up/down with pageup/pagedown keys then some keystrokes are not followed by redraw, or redraw is partially blank (horizontally split - see attached screenshot). Subsequent keystrokes either have the same problem or are rendered correctly. - scrolling is only problematic with pageup/pagedown keys. Alternative methods (up/down keys, mousewheel, holding and dragging scrollbar or clicking above or beneath it) work ok. - I'm sure that version 89.0 or 88.0 didn't have this problem. Since then I haven't changed any about:config settings or updated graphics driver. Compositing was then and now set at WebRender (not WebRender (Software)). - I tried disabling hardware acceleration on version 92.0, but it hasn't solved issue, so I reverted this back.

Troubleshooting info is attached.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I want a toolbar button I can click on once that opens the Manage Bookmarks (Library) window. I want it to do the equivalent of Ctrl+Shift+O.

I'm completely aware of the Library icon, and the "Show your bookmarks" icon with the little star in the tray, but both of those require two clicks to open a separate Library window with Bookmarks selected. I once figured out how to do something similar with a bookmark to some place in About: but this opened a separate tab I then had to close and I want it to open a separate window.

I've used Firefox since at least 2007 or earlier and I still miss the little star icon (or was it a globe) that opened Organize Bookmarks. It's not laziness on my part, but it is over a decade of muscle memory I still haven't shaken. Besides, what was the advantage of making it harder to get to?

Programs I always used, now request to enable JavaScript. Spent hours and days trying to load/enable JavaScript. No luck. Decided to reset FF. Whoops!!! It reset, but by itself, like magic, it reloaded all of the previous extensions. Startling and weird; threw me for a loop. This wasn't what was supposed to happen. The dead had come back to life. Gremlins at work? Oh, and contrary to FF "comes with JS", that did not happen. Ran reset again, just in case last night's booze had lingering after effects. Same astonishing hallucination. More baffling than ever. So I ran several on demand Anti-virus scanners; system is clean. Bewildered and frustrated, I resisted the urge to throw the f#*&^ing computer out the window, when I noticed the sun was rising; so I fell asleep. After several hours of sleep, punctuated by visions of monster virus zombies, I awoke, and then sought help from a nerd. But the esoteric terminology used was beyond my pay grade. Silly me for asking a venerable nerd for help. Witchcraft, or am I infected by a new virus? I believe this misery may have started when I manually updated FF, prompted by a program that checks for updates. Kindly note that I am not a computer whiz, but I can follow simple directions, minus verbiage that I don't have the foggiest interpretation of. Sorry about that. Please help. Thank you.
