Firefox will not create new tabs

I was using the tree style tabs add-on. Firefox popped up a message about a problem with that add-on, which I unfortunately clicked on, and all my tabs vanished. Now not only do I not have my tree-style tabs, Firefox will not create new tabs at all, and "restore session," or "restore all tabs" does nothing. FWIW, in safe mode, it will still give me standard abs at the top.

The Add-ons page offers me "find alternative add-ons," but will not download the alternative it offered me.

I've been a loyal Firefox user since the very first iteration of Firefox, but this has got me ready to bail and find another browser. Really pissed that it gave me no option to read up on what the problem was before killing all my tabs and refusing to allow me to even make new ones in the standard top tab mode without safe mode. I understand there being a problem with an add-on, but this sort of behavior is beyond the pale.

Anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions beyond changing browsers?

How can I remove the Extension (Yahoo ….lbar and New Tab) area from blocking typing space?

When I open up a new tab, sometimes the window is short and because the Extension is long I can’t type unless I expand the window. See image below. I don’t want to expand the window because I am using the side by side view ( one doc is half the screen and another doc is the other half of screen). How can I remove the Extension (Yahoo ….lbar and New Tab) so its not blocking the available typing space?

See image attached with screenshots

Hallo,

My problem with Firefox is, that sometimes I can not click on bottons on a website or scroll down menues do not open. When I try it with a different browser it works. An example is, when I try to log into my google (Gmail) account. I click on the top right button to sign in. Then I enter my email adress. After entering my email adress I try to click on continue but it is just not going to the password entering site. It´s not taking my click.

Hey guys,

We are creating a HTML file from scratch of URL's needing to be imported as bookmarks into Firefox. The file is generated by Microsoft Excel, which means it has lots of fun unnecessary code in the HTML file.

The Firefox Help is full of How To's from other browsers, however, we were not able find any details about syntax when one creates a HTML file outside of other browsers.

Is there any specific format or syntax the HTML file should be setup in in order to successfully import them into Firefox Bookmarks?

Thanks for your help.

My Firefox updated to 67.0.1 and now when I type anything into the search bar the results then show up in the address bar. I do not want this. I used to have all the websites that I normally visit typed in and basically saved to the address bar so I could use it quickly to pull up my favorite sites. When did someone come up with this stupid idea to do this. I wish that companies like you would stop changing things thinking that is what people want. I want my Firefox to be the way it always was. If there is no way to change this then I am going to quit using Firefox and I will try something else. PLEASE FIX

Hello,

My addons have stopped working. They are all shown as Legacy Extensions.

Also, I can not install new ones.

This is obviously due to the recent Firefox bug.

I have noted the in about:config xpinstall.signatures.required has been set to false so it looks like Firefox has had the fix applied.

I believe this should have cured the problem, but for me it does not work - my add-ons are still shown as Legacy and I can't install new ones.

Is there anything I can do to cure this ?

Regards,

Nick.

Once again, without any warning, Firefox demanded I power-cycle itself because it, *without any permission*, installed an update "in the background". Firefox refuses to carry out any further action until I comply with its demands.

Let me be very clear: forced auto-updates are **100% EVIL**. I own, and am ultimately responsible for, this computer. Me. Not you. Me.

Download the update, fine. Notify me about it, present to me what the changes are coming, sure.

But under absolutely NO CIRCUMSTANCES is Firefox, or any other program for that matter, to modify itself or any other element of this computer without my positive consent.

Thanks a bunch!
