I want to have "add to Delicious" on my Firefox toolbar but the only option is a bookmark, so I have to show bookmarks bar. However, it's taking up unnecessary space (see image). It wasn't doing that on Windows Firefox that I last used (I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 now, FF 48.0). I can't seem to resize it in Customise. Roomy Bookmarks addon doesn't do this either.

I followed the suggestions from FredMcD on how to troubleshoot a problem I'm having with Yahoo opening with text only. All of the solutions up to going into safe mode had no success but when I put Firefox into safe mode,9 out of 10 tries loading Yahoo worked fine. So how do I get out of safe mode?

The update from 47 to 48 has been devastating. This time, the search engine is always Yahoo Search. I assume Firefox gets a kick-back for this new feature.

I have no add-on or tools-bars and version 47 was fine (48 sucks). This applies to the search bar or the default home page search.

Isn't there a simply fix? I can't find a customize feature to change the default search Yahoo to eBay permanently. Its always back to Yahoo after every single search. I what my browser MY way.....not someone else ideas of what I want or need.

If I can't make Firefox mine....Its off my 4 computers here at home. To many other choices to be hamstrung by Firefox. Right now Firefox is right there with Microsoft Edge as the worse browser on the planet.

I have had a pop-up appear several times recently asking me to install a Firefox update to solve a Java script problem. The internet address where it originates has nothing in it to give me any confidence that it is really from Firefox. Is this a fishing scam?

Kaspersky Internet Security identifies there are multiple vulnerabilities existing in Firefox 45X (64-bit), while the Secunia updater continually insists program requires manually updating...while not accepting the update after I supply language information. In the meantime Firefox says I have the latest update. Can someone tell me what's going on??? I realize there are glitches in a lot of programs, just wondering if anyone else is having this problem?

Hi,

I want to update this add-on to version 6: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/

The update should introduce a completely new UI but it isn't applying for me, even after multiple re-installs of the add-on. There might be cached files in my Firefox profile. With a freshly created profile it works as expected. Is there a way to clear the extension-cache of Firefox?

As a volunteer at a non-profit resale shop, I need to research prices for donated items. I have a donated computer with windows 7 and a wifi connection. I connect to the wifi but internet explorer will not open a web page. Thought I would try installing firefox, but need to do it from a dvd or thumb drive since I cannot access the internet on that computer. Can I burn the info on my pc and then move it to the donated pc? Thanks. By the way, if it matters, I can access the internet with wifi on my old sloooow laptap at that location.

Just this AM I'm having a problem with my AOL homepage not displaying pics. I'm not having this problem with either Chrome or IE. I tried a refresh with no effect. I sent an email to AOL support, but realistically, I don't expect them to reply. So I'm not sure if this is an AOL problem or something to do with FF. Thanks

I'm not sure why but I now get constant unresponsive scripts and crashing. The unresponsive scripts freeze my firefox and checking the box that says "do not show again" or whatever does not seem to do anything at all. Even if I do check that box the same unresponsive notice will appear.

That however is not a new thing, The issue when the unresponsive script comes up and checking the box so it does not show again does nothing, it has been going on since the past updates. Nothing has been done, and its starting to seem that after 3 years nothing will be done about it.

Every time that my Firefox crashes I send a "crash report" but from what I can tell that also does nothing at all, I've been sending crash reports for awhile now and nothings been done at all it seems, I even put my email so that firefox can communicate with me about the crash. Granted, I can't do anything but provide details about the crash, but if the option is there why not make use of it?
