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?

I think this issue started with 66.0.4, as I noticed it before the update to 66.0.5.

I am no longer able to drag tabs, either within the same window or to a new window.

I also noticed that I can't drag bookmarks around on the Bookmarks Toolbar.

I tried running Safe Mode, and uninstalled and reinstalled with no addons, but the behavior is the same.

Let me know if I can provide any additional details. I'd appreciate it if anyone can offer any help with this.

Regards

Annoyance that Mozilla simply suspends a service for which I have paid good money, with no warning what so ever ? Require a concrete suggestion from Mozilla as to how to restore Kaskperski. Did you not try to talk to other suppliers of security services about your impending move ?? And why could you not coordinate this better with them. Yet another case of an technology entity (mostly to be considered amongst the "good guys"), simply re-writing the rules. In other industries this would not be tolerated by customers/users ! If no fix available, what proposals do you make to compensate me for my loss of service ??

Hi! Not much on details. I just want to move my existing profile to a server. Can I just copy name.default to the server, rename name.default on the client, and on the client create a link name.default to the server profile? Or, can I use ProfileManager to create a new profile on the server and copy the contents of the client profile to the new one?

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

This seems to be a fairly recent problem, maybe a week or two I think, because there was no problem before that. I use DuckDuckgo for my search engine, and I have windows 10 on a Dell Latitude E6520. As I stated in the problem sentence, using Google browser plays the clips fine.
