I am running Win 10. When I read The Economist, Firefox clips the last word off of each line of text. I am unable to adjust Firefox to eliminate the problem. When I read the same article from The Economist using the Chrome browser, NO WORDS ARE CLIPPED FROM THE END OF EACH LINE OF TEXT. The Economist customer help says that this is a Firefox formatting problem

A new feature (Firefox 73), presumably related to the URL bar Page Actions, is the popup of twitter and email icons that appears when text is selected on a webpage. The text is also yellow highlighted. This behavior occurs in safe mode, so it must be a Firefox feature.

The popup is intrusive. How is it disabled?

How do I dismiss the warning message about closing multiple tabs without closing all other tabs?

Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit When I close several tabs, a message box appears telling me that tabs will be closed in 20 seconds, or to click to avoid that. If I dismiss the box by clicking on the window-frame "X", Firefox closes too many tabs. (The box disappears after a few seconds.) I wish not to see that box. I wish Firefox to do nothing I do not trigger myself. How do I eliminate that function entirely?

In Firefox 73 on Ubuntu 18.04 amd64, the menu is too large. It looks "zoomed in". I have read about the new zoom feature, but it is said to affect website display only, not the menu. Websites are consistently shown too large in the same way. Changing Firefox's website zoom does not help. Neither does changing the Xserver's DPI. I am using a low resolution display – the menu is taking up too much space. Also the menu item graphics are scaled which looks ugly. Images are scaled, too. It is not noticeable on high-resolution displays. Any pointers?

At one point I had a bookmark that took me to my bookmarks library, one that worked like any other webpage using a chrome:// link. Well I accidentally deleted it and now can't get it back. I've tried making a bookmark that goes to chrome://bookmarks and chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, but neither work. All the other questions I've found about this are from 2013 or earlier.

Because of problems with FF, uninstalled and reinstalled it. (Turns out the problem was with 0Patch, not FF.) The old version was 32 bit, the new one 64 bit. But there are many references (75 of them) in registry to Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe. Is it safe to delete them? (I am comfortable working with the registry.)

For many years now I have used the beta channel. At the end of last week I checked for updates and received 73.0b11. I was already on 73.0 beta, probably b10.

Since that update I am unable to edit the contents of the address bar unless I launch a Private Window, where the problem doesn't occur.

I have tried using the "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..." option from the Help menu but the problem remains.

I am running on Windows 10, 64-bit, [Version 10.0.18363.592], with all the latest Microsoft updates.
