Why does firefox have a white boarder on left and right sides on a 4k monitor when scalling is above 100%? (multi year problem....)

this has been a problem for multiple years. its caused me not to use my monitor at 4k because i love firefox but cannot stand a white bar on the side. im over this problem, it has not been fixed in several years (3+) with any update. Edge, Chrome, and Opera do not do this, only Firefox. I have tried standard, beta, nightly, and they all do the same thing. It is a firefox problem. Not windows, gpu driver, or anything else. Scaling above 100% should be just fine. I am ready to be done with Firefox as you guys don't seem to care about the problem at all. I have seen multiple posts on here about the same problem, and nothing gets done. Please fix this problem soon. I am ready to switch back to chrome -_-

This involves Firefox on Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS. I have been using Firefox on my MacBook since 2012, and been syncing to my Android phones since 2015-ish (a Huawei, then Samsung, then another Samsung, replacing them as they broke). I never had any problems. I can't remember if I was able to access already synced bookmarks from broken phones, but since I move my mobile bookmarks into desktop bookmark folders pretty often, I was never bothered enough to check. Last October, my MacBook's logic board broke. Not long after, my phone broke. I got a secondhand iPhone, and signed into sync, but nothing synced up. I assume because my devices are already dead and no longer syncing? Is there anyway for me to access my laptop bookmarks? I still have the hard drive from the MacBook.
I finally have access to a computer again, this time a Windows desktop, and logged in to my Firefox sync to see if I could find any of my disappeared bookmarks. Nope, but something weird happened. I have about 200 bookmarks on my iPhone, and the first 139 migrated to the desktop. They show up under the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder on the desktop, but I can no longer see them on my iPhone. The most recent 20 or so bookmarks are still available on my iPhone, but don't appear on the desktop. What just happened?
While going through all the help pages, I discovered that I do have a second Firefox profile, though I opened it up and there isn't anything on it. Not sure if that matters.
I get this automatic website when I log on in stead of cursor going to search box so I can enter question. How do I delete this?

This is a laptop that is only in my possession. it was just recreated in June and I keep getting this message in options and it is quite upsetting to me. I have zero organizations that I belong to so this I just don't understand. I have included screen shots of my options page and a shot of what I get when I press the link about organization. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Firefox updates seem to ignore my privacy and security concerns as addons that address them get obliterated during updates.

This has been a MAJOR PROBLEM FOR ME for me since at least the time Quantum was released.
My goal during an update is to be able to continue using the release that is to be replaced until I am satisfied that the new release with its new profile includes as many of the preferences, add-ons, passwords, and other settings that can be carried forward from the previous one as possible (e.g., all that do not cause major conflicts or other serious problems not easily resolved).
The majority of the add-ons I use are related to maintaining the privacy, anonymity, security, and integrity of the browser as well as the data which it handles or manages. Quite a few are redundant so I usually have several installed but disabled at any given time.
From my perspective It makes little sense to enable Firefox to send anything to Mozilla (e.g., allow Firefox to phone home) before I am reasonably sure the new installation of Firefox is running well, with the same or a similar set of security and privacy add-ons in place, especially when I was not made very aware that enabling this would make restoring the add-ons I cherish easier in some way.
Storage is dirt cheap these days. Even on this laptop, I can add another 2TB of fast SSD storage via an external port, then move at least a 1TB of stuff off the 1TB internal SSDs -- in other words, I like the idea of having the option of making a complete backup of the entire existing Firefox Beta release I have been using with all of its pointers to my data on this system, other systems, in the cloud, etc. before letting the installer create the new installation for the upgraded Beta Release.
I gather a system reboot (or at least a browser restart would be in order at this point. After that, it would be wonderful if I was presented the option of migrating all of my old preferences, other settings, and passwords to new profile of the new installation. I doubt many of the add-ons I use are so obscure that they would not get tested by at least a few people doing QA for the upgrade so if any might pose problems, I could be told they could not be migrated with the rest that can be carried forward in a routine manner. (Specific instructions as to how to handle the exceptions would be nice. Some hints about why the particular add-on does not play well with the upgrade would give users a place to start investigating.)
What bugs me the most is that I am dead in the water until the add-ons that I use to block a shit-ton of tracking, fingerprinting, and other kinds of cookies, as well as those used by outright malware disservices found on some sites are in place to make the Web a much safer place for me and the things I use it for.
I completely understand why the upgrades to the first releases of Firefox Quantum required most users to re-install most addons and set most of their preferences, but after a major release upgrade or three to Quantum, things should be back to a lot more automated routine that preserves the functionality the user had in the previous release as much as is realistically feasible when the new release is installed in its own separate place with its own profiles, thus giving the user the fall back option of continuing to use the old release until the new one is tweaked enough to be workable for the user.
Remember: if you do not want to shed users because they get tired of having to restore things from scratch and perhaps losing a lot of important data or functionality along the way, you have to give them as clear and reliable means as possible of getting from where they where (presumably) somewhat satisfied with the old release to as good or better level of satisfaction with the new release, without making them jump through a lot of difficult hoops or perform what seem to be several arcane rituals.
In short, the default process should be to carry forward as many add-ons and user preferences as possible during an upgrade (given the user the option to start from scratch if he likes clean installs or happens to be enough of a masochistic geek to want to go through setting up two dozen add-ons and many specific settings). On occasion, I will put of with the painful process of cleaning the junk out of an old browser or system configuration, but usually I try to do that as part of routine housekeeping and like it when what should be a simple system or browser upgrade does not end up seeming like going through a full tax audit.

I found a MAJOR FLAW in FireFox so they Steal all your info you type!
I do not want my "AUTOFILL" being used, yet FIREFOX BUILT IN TO BE AUTOMATICALLY ON!
I also use CC Cleaner and it exposed a MAJOR SECRET BUG IN FIREFOX and you can NOT TURN OFF AUTOFILL!
The "Fake" autofill is reset to always be ON, and if you try to actually Block it, your FF will reboot back to AUTOFILL ON!
You can got to Security and select "Autofill" to be off, but its a FACT, IT STAYS ON! A 2nd security program states the BROWSER PLUG IN is not Off but On! When I manually turn it off with a 2nd program, it automatically closes FF and reboots back on with AUTOFILL ON!?
So Once I turn on FireFox and my autofill in security says OFF, it actually stays on. Looking at programs browser plugin in CCleaner, it reverts and says FF Autofill is ON! When you try to clear it and change it to OFF, you FIREFOX Automatically CLOSES! Then when you restart FF and look again, CCLeaner says its ON.
I was wondering why I'd get the same stuff on pages, and I set my Security Autofill OFF. So you "assume" its off, but if you look close, you'll see stuff you typed yesterday, is still valid. Yet I reset all cookies and run CCLeaner and several other security programs.
So why can't you actually TURN OFF FF "AUTOFILL"? Their is a SECRET that forces FF to keep autofill ON, even when you select it to be OFF!
Does anyone else find this scam on, where your computer catches FF Autofill being on, when you select it to be off?
So all your typing in FF, you may select Autofill "Off", but your computer actually reads that Autofill IN FF as still being "ON".
So is FF only "Pretending" to its users to think your "autofill" data is OFF, but ITS ACTUALLY BEING SENT? If not, why is other security programs picking up on the Autofill typing being sent as "ON", inside the actual FF program? Why would a computer security program reading FF, read the blocked autofill data as being ON, while your FF security controls say its OFF inside the FF Browser?
This opens up your computer to having all your typed data secretly stolen, and if you use your CC or bank info or passwords, they are really be SENT! What a FF scam.... So was this purposely made or what?
I never remember having any "Autofill" Plugin, until the last few months. So is this a new addon, that they use to backdoor into FF and steal all your personal data?

I have installed these add-ons. Ad blocker, password manager, and privacy browser.
After changing the settings in Firefox, my ad blocker and password manager disappeared from the menu bar. I see the add-ons in the extension list. Uninstalling, re-instaling the extensions do not bring the extension icons back. I tried to do a "re-install" using the Firefox "re-install" button, but my extensions did not show up again.
I had to completely uninstall Firefox (which does not remove Firefox settings from the computer ---- WHY?!) delete the registry entry, re-install Firefox and re-instsall the add-on extension to get them to show up again.
But when I go back into settings, make changes, the add-on extensions disappear again.
Which settings cause this?

I have several shortcuts on my desktop. More than one appears with a FireFox icon instead of the corresponding icon which would normally belong to the icon. This is only happening on one of my computers and not on the other. I'd like to correct the icons in having be with the appropriate website's icon; i.e. Yahoo should have a purple "Y", Accuweather should be a large orange sun.

There appears to be an issue in Firefox Quantum 68.0 (64 bit) Windows 10 with it not displaying icons offline. You can now only see them when the website is uploaded online. This has never before been the case in all previous versions. I've attached a screenshot. there should be displaying in the image facebook, twitter and instagram icons. Makes it very difficult when you can't see them when designing a website. No issues in Chrome, Edge or Opera Browsers.

Sometimes on steaming sites (e.g., youtube) firefox exhibits laggy response time. For example, when I double click on the video for fullscreen, it takes about half a second for firefox to execute. This usually happens when I'm using firefox on the site without closing it for some time. Why does this happen?

Before these changes, when I opened Firefox, I could pull down a menu and see my bookmarks. I can't now and I can't figure out what to do from looking at the articles. I loved having my bookmarks like that and I don't know where they are. Or how to get them back. I use an iMac OS X 10.11.6
Please help! I'd prefer to remain with Firefox but not if I can't make it work.

I have an Addon acting up, Webroot Filtering Extension. I can disable it, but I would like to remove and download fresh. The 3 dots by the extension does not have option to remove like the other Addons. Webroot is no longer showing the check mark when doing a search. There is a clear circle where the check mark should be. I am not sure if this started when I updated to Windows 10 1903 or when going to Firefox 68? I have disabled and enabled Webroot Filtering Extension and that doesn't help, restarts don't help.

I need to disable E10s. It causes Firefox 68,0 (32bit) to display a Blank Page when Firefox is closed and I launch a Web Page from my Email Client. I have to have Firefox open first now before clicking on a Website url from the Email Client. This was the same problem I had two or more years ago when E10s was first implemented. I disabled it back then in about:config but Mozilla have disabled that option in Firefox 68. It's stated you can disable E10s using Environment Variable MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S - 1 but I'm not sure where to use that. I put it in my Windows 10 Environment Variables (System Properties/Environment Variables) but it did not work. I am using Windows 10 32-bit (Both Pro and Home) and the problem exists on all computers since upgrading to Firefox 68.0. I need to disable E10s again.
