Not so much a question, rather a statement as it solves a problem of almost a year's standing. Having been unable to use Rapport for months since Firefox 41, in common with many other Firefox users, I was amazed to open Firefox 46.0.1 this morning to find Rapport working perfectly. Hope it works for other frustrated users as well :)

I use favourites & I must have clicked on something, so now all I get where the "save in favourites" little icon used to be, is something about a pocket which I don't have time nor inclination to fuss over. I was perfectly happy with just having favourites the way it was. But now I cannot even locate my favourites menu.

Why do they keep changing things ??

Thanks.

Thanks for any help. A friend's email was hacked. She has changed the password. The only damage she has found so far has been that emails were sent to people in her contact list. Along with the other things she is doing, does she also need to change her email address and get her an entirely new email account? Also, she was concerned about asking the question herself as she isn't sure if she would pass any virus to others. Do you know if she is right not to use the forum since this happened to her email? Does she need to change her email account/address?

I apologize if this isn't an appropriate question for this forum. Thanks.

After a recent refresh of my firefox brower, the Awesome Bar seems to be visually different. Prior to the refresh when search it displayed similar to the way the awesome bar is shown on the help page. However now it instead shows results in a thinner visual, and with the url upfront and description on it's side, barely showing.

If there is any way to return it to it's prior visual, i would like to know. I have posted an image of how it currently looks like.

In Google Chrome, whenever I click on a login box, it automatically shows the usernames that I have used in that specific entry box. In Firefox, I have to start entering the username before the username pops up and I click it to fill in the username and password. As a tester, it's arduous to have to type in part of the username every time (1st world problems). Is there a way to replicate what happens in Chrome?

I downloaded Firefox to try and compare with my current browser. I enjoyed Fire fox and now want to uninstall IE. opened Control Panel+ uninstall and did not see IE in the list. So I right clicked IE's icon, went to file location and there was no uninstalll application there. Should I download a application that uninstalls programs or is there a reason that IE is not in my PC's Control Panel. OS Win-7

Thank you

I've never taken an interest in mozilla apart from it's inception.

I wanted to respond to something I read so I decided to create an account in this support section.

I eventually decided to ask this question which gave me the option to register; done but no profile can be found.

I assume I have to post a question to legitimize my purpose for being here.

I like that.

I have a
with style="break-after: right;" which works as expected in IE and Edge - it inserts one or two page breaks as necessary to ensure that the following page is a "right" page. However, in FF it always inserts a single page break, even if two are needed. Is there something else I'm missing, or does FF not implement left/right page breaks?

With the past couple of firefox updates, any browser theme I choose puts a small toolbar at the bottom of my screen that I find annoying and want to get rid of. No matter what I try, I can't get rid of it. I've pressed the X in the corner of it, it does nothing, same for the trash bin icon, and nothing in firefox customize seems to help to get rid of it. Previous versions of Firefox never showed this mini toolbar at the bottom of my screen. Is there anyway to disable or to get rid of this but with still being able to have a customized theme?
