What I was able to do before FireFox 29 was to hide the blue folder icons in the Bookmarks Toolbar, leaving only the Name of the folder and the downward pointing arrow ∇.

I believe I was able to do that with a simple button or check box from View > Toolbars > Customize... but not, as I recall, with any extension or add-on. It seemed to be part of FireFox. Now, this feature has been thrown down Orwell's Memory Hole and I have been given some solutions that require manually editing a userChrome.css text file that is supposed to have some additional code added to some existing code to a file that I don't seem to have found using the advice given. That file is supposed to go into a Profile folder that apparently has a different name than simply Profile.

I have been given some advice stating "You can..." but I am not sure this is an adventure that will lead to a serious mistake or just the beginning of a long learning arc. I think I want the buttons back.

A serious answer would have all the steps. Yeah, I'm not going to learn on my own, because this is a feature that was removed and ought not to have been.

I'm willing to give up on Firefox. The new version is completely broken, worse than IE at this point, it's not nice, but I'm not kidding.

For example the back button, I do a google search, click on a result, no active back button. I'm not kidding, I can't go back and try to click on the next result cause it's gone. WTF!

When FF starts up it comes on with the standard screen but quickly switches to a screen showing a global map and a short video of children stating what they want in their experiences in a system. This programming for this is embedded in the start up sequence ( I looked already) and is clearly from Firefox - not mal-wear or other "bad" thing.

I cannot get rid of it, it is distracting and a pain besides since it often by random movement of the courser hits the spot where the video is activated.

I need to remove the programming sequence which initiates this.

I posed the question already and did not get a responsive return which helped.

Hello Everyone,

I have two windows 7's workstations. One workstation is a new install. The other is a laptop. On the new install I loaded Firefox 29. Didn't sync with the old sync server. So I upgraded the laptop to Firefox 29. I signed up for the new sync on both workstations. On the new install workstation no book marks have been moved from the laptop..

Any help would be great.

After installing FF29, the drop-down menu in the URL bar doesn't seem to work. Nothing happens when I click it, and when I start typing in an address it doesn't show a list of suggestions like it used to.

Didn't find anything relevant when googling, so if anyone knows how to make it work - do tell.

EDIT: Never mind, it was obviously my own fault. Problem solved.

So you ask a question to me and lock the thread at the same time. Do you want it answered or not? I'm confused as it wasn't rhetorical. Anyways I am a little pissed about it so here's your answer.

But first off. When you say I overreacted I think not. You first go to edit my post taking out almost all my words such as "hell" and then you go and use the word "ass". I don't know about you, but the word "ass" is much worse then word "hell". Then you say "If you start being an ass" which implies you already feel I'm am being this way, and that is what your view is of me. Your response to me is confusing as you say you didn't imply or say anything negative to me. When I clearly see as such. So did I overreact? I simply stated my dislike your comment, and that it no longer made me grateful for anything you where trying to do. I could have called you a hypocrite and few other things that came to mind, but I instead pointed out how stupid that comment was.

Now to your Question. As to why I am telling you this. Well it is simple. I looked up Mozilla support. I then clicked a product I wanted supported. I then said yes I would like to ask a question about it. I guess you guys are just lairs and don't even support firefox. All you really are is a FAQ. You guys mislead people and get angry because people are mislead. LOL this is beyond funny. Redo this website. It's a must. If I wanted a FAQ website I would have went to a firefox or mozilla wiki. You don't even understand why you mislead people and get these questions. Too funny. But hey I guess your just highjacking a fee name and calling yourselves the support guys. I hope these clears up why I even bother coming here. Trust me when I say I am done. With this section.

Thanks for confusing me and probable tons of other people out there. You guys clearly know how to do that.

I still have not been able to resolve this issue. Below are the 3 comments I made and the 1 answer I received, which did not solve the issue:

A few days ago, Yahoo decided to put up a vertical section on the right side of the game window that takes up 30% of the screen in the game. I have not been able to get rid of it. I asked the Yahoo Customer Care rep and she said that it is not supposed to happen as the game should not be stopped by the ads and that I should try with another Browser. I tried it with Chrome and that ad section was not there with Chrome. I was told that it was probably a browser issue and I did disable most of the add-ons and plug-ins but it did not work. Any suggestions as to how I can get rid of that vertical ad section?

"the one answer I received":

There are add-ons available from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/ to help prevent ad pop-ups and ads to show plainly.

This problem is not a pop-up. First of all the problem did not start until Yahoo changed their set up for ads in Yahoo Games. Once it did start, the ads do not "pop-up", it is a vertical bar that is there all the time. You cannot get rid of it. By the same token, it is not a Yahoo Problem since the problem does not exist using another server. Yahoo says it has to do with some add-ons or plug-ins in Firefox that is causing the problem. As you can see by the screen picture, one third of the game screen has a vertical ad area. I want to get rid of it.


I did add the "Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel" add-on but it did not help, at least not with the game section where the vertical ad panel is presently located. Any other suggestions?

This is more a comment than a question.

For various reasons (usually asthetics, sometimes for small screens) one trend in user interface design is to hide everything. The other is to make asthetics win over usability.

Please don't hide everything. Make it hidden if necessary on small screens but not on the high-res screen I bought so I can show every toolbar I need to work efficiently.

Second, if you want to put the refresh button way, way over on the right side, away from all the other most-used buttons (back, forward), then please give us the ability to move it back and make it more efficient again. Also allow us to put those most used buttons on the far left (back, forward, refresh, home), which requires less mouse accuracy to find. They don't have to be next to the URL bar.

I'll go use the legacy plug-in to fix it, but it's sad that trying to work efficiently isn't a valuable design criteria anymore.

Thanks for a great product. I installed a metallic flavored browser while going through the problems of heartbleed and now things crash way more--a problem I never had with just firefox.

new version forces me to use an intermediate step to load any file including mail. I cannot directly enter an url in the usual way, using the http (etc) line. My only cure so far is to use CHROME. If I can't use 3.6 without an automatic change being forced on me, I guess it's bye-bye. I only use xp because all of my computers are loaded with older programs.

Several new Firefox Support questions relate to the new "awful blue" in the menu bar in 29.0.1. But that "awful blue" was ALWAYS there as the Windows windowframe color (in Windows XP, SP 3). The real problem is that the windowframe has now "leaked" or "fused" its way into the Firefox menu bar. The two should be separate. Please separate them again, so that Windows controls the windowframe only, while Firefox controls the menu bar only.

Like a lot of people my blank page had been hijacked by AVG. This post is not so much a question as the answer. None of the support answers I saw solved the problem but a Google search "avg hijack blank tab" yielded the following link which solved the problem:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDgQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fnewmediamike.com%2F2013%2F06%2Fremove-avg-secure-search-toolbar%2F&ei=3odxU_GwAtjooATulYCYAw&usg=AFQjCNHSMcjJYn6pMBa_YKn7KrpkHXftsw&sig2=wruND3cBa_VwyKgbLHKVtA

Basically, when AVG updated their anti-virus program, they by default installed their "AVG SAFE SEARCH" toolbar. They did this while my system was unattended so I was not able to deselect their toolbar during install.

1.) Goto the CONTROL PANEL 2.) Select "Add or Remove Programs" in Win XP, or in Vista: "Programs and Features". I don't know what Win 7 or 8 calls it but it should be similar. 3.) Uninstall: "AVG SAFE SEARCH TOOLBAR" 4.) Reboot if necessary.

Problem solved. Save yourself from rage at AVG.

Regards, Teri
