All of a sudden, I can only get FF to run as a maximized window - otherwise it is minimized and I can't seem to get it to run with a sizeable window?? I'm on a Windows box and this just all of a sudden started this morning. At a hotel so on a pub network also.

Any ideas how I can get FF window size to act normally again??? Thanks

Every day when I come back to my mac and firefox is open, it will not respond to any new web address. I can put in any web site and it resolves the full page name, but does not open any site. I have to close firefox completely, which is a pain when I have multiple pages open. It does not matter if I have one or tabs in use, I am forced to close out of firefox completely in order for it to work again. This has been going on for years for me with firefox through multiple versions, multiple MacOS, and multiple Mac systems.

Whether I'm on a search page and click a link or type in the url, when I'm in Firefox (my preferred browser), it just spins and rarely reaches the site most of the time. If I'm in yahoo mail it often says "can't connect to internet".

If I type the same url or click on a searched link in chrome or edge it works fine.  I don't get the "can't connect to internet" notice on the other two.  What is going on?

Hi,

I'm not sure I'm asking in the right place, but I couldn't find anywhere else that would match my question better.

I recently submitted a new add-on, which has just been accepted and added to the store. I'd like to submit an alternate version of the same add-on as another extension, but I haven't been able to. The first add-on provides two features, but one of them requires access to web requests; the second add-on removes that feature entirely and therefore does not need to access anything (other than a button press), hence why I'd like to add it as another, separate extension.

The first submission went smoothly, no issues at all; however, today after making the necessary changes to the add-on to make the alternate version, I tried submitting it and have been unable to because Multiple submissions violating our policies have been sent from your location. The IP address has been blocked.. I'm forced to use a VPN, and I assume this the reason why I'm getting this error message.

I've tried restarting my router, changing my location on my VPN, or briefly turning off my VPN, even using another computer, but it always results in the same error message after doing the captcha, preventing me from submitting the other add-on. What can I do?

I assure you I'm not a bot -- although that's probably what a bot would say in this situation...

Thank you.

Latest update of Firefox causes scroll bar to be missing (actually, very, very skinny/hidden)

I have always used Firefox, but also have Chrome and Edge on my 17" PC. For the past week or so, my scroll bar (on right side of screen) has "disappeared". It is actually still there, but so skinny that it cannot be seen or used. I Googled solutions to this, and found an article that had 8 possible solutions. I went through all 8, went into the various control options. Still, the same problem. Downloaded the latest version of Firefox and installed. Still the same problem. So- I decided to see if it was an issue with my pc. I tried the Chrome browser. It works fine. I tried the Edge browser. It works fine. I know now that the problem is with the Firefox browser. Something "went wrong" in the latest version. To add to this -- I also have to note that if I shut down and restart the pc, I can get the Firefox scroll bar to return (sometimes). BUT (this is really weird): if the scroll bar appears normal, the bar at the top of the page (not sure what that is called) does not work correctly/ is missing features. This is what happens: there is no X to exit a page, there is no "V " sign to make a page small, etc. All 4 symbols that should be in the top right side of the top bar are missing. Also, there are no tabs available. It won't allow you to have more than one tab! So, if you are in your gmail (for example), you must close out the gmail in order to do a google search or do anything else! Something is terribly wrong with the latest Firefox update.

For a while now whenever I drag and drop an image into Google Image, the results show up as pixelated pink, blue, green, yellow etc images. Not a single trace of the original image can be seen.

It has been like this for several updates now, I lost count how many to be exact. But it's been months. In Edge it works just fine, but I don't plan changing browsers just because of that.

If anyone knows how to fix this, I'd love to know.

Thank you.

I started getting screen flashes and then identifying pop up windows that go to adform dot com addresses, that are blocked on my computer so nothing other than a error shows up. Its annoying and random. I have checked security page and it says Block pop-up windows and this is blocked. Two exemptions are there which are acceptable. I have run virus checks on Bitdefender and Malwarebytes (Latest versions update) nothing is reported. - What is causing this and how do I stop it? After opening up the hidden window that flashes it tries different pages all fail then eventually the pop up window closes on its own.

Using latest version of Firefox browser 117.0.1 (64 bit) Don't get the pop ups on Google Chrome.
