For all past years, when I save bookmarks, they go to the bottom of my drop down icon. Then I double-click-drag to where I want them in my drop down list. In the past week or so, I can no longer do this. It seems Facebook now forces us to open the bookmarks window???? That's a whole lot of extra steps! In over a decade of Firefox I've maybe opened the bookmarks window a 10 times!

Bring back the ability to move bookmarks in one-quick-step. Why must all firefox "upgrades" make using firefox slower :(

Netflix keeps crashing the minute I open it on Firefox due to the Widevine plugin. This has been happening ever since Widevine's latest update about a week ago. I've since learned that their latest update doesn't support MAC OS X 10.9.5, which is what I have. The recommendation on this forum was to install an older version of Widevine. I've looked everywhere and I haven't been able to find out how to do that or where to even find an older version. Widevine's website is not helpful.

Hoping you can help!

Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

Hi, there. I've been using FF ESR as my primary browser for over 3 years. However, I keep encountering update problem, which by clicking menu button and the pop-up update option. Then, the browser will update my 64-bit ESR into 32-bit ESR. I feel so confused and upset I have to update manually by downloading the whole new 64-bit version from official site even though a minor update. The latest version was 78.5 ESR 64-bit reinstalled along the OS on DEC. 2020, Now using 78.10 ESR 64-bit. Is there any solution for me to use pop-up update on menu option? Environment: Windows 7 ultimate SP1 64-bit Thanks!

when opening a website link, from a source other than through Firefox, my home page also opens up as a second tab. This is annoying as I always receive a message asking if I want to close all tabs when I close down the web page I initially opened up. I never used to have this happen. How do I turn this off?

Authorization for studies is unchecked on my account. When I notice that I participated in 2 remote-studies without me knowing anything about it, nor when it was done, nor why :

T =TopSites Launch Phase 3 - US v2•Terminée TopSites + Redirect Launch T=TopSites Launch Phase 3 - GB•Terminée TopSites Redirect Launch

 Why is Firefox doing  remote-studies from 2 continents on my account without my consent? nor telling me anything about it? 

It is true that I've been redirected using Firefox for quite a while with no idea why (not a good grade as far as privacy is concerned...).

The expected output of it would include NAME and folder input on the dialog box, That doesn't appear to be the case.

Firefox 78.10.1 esr 64 bit Windows 10.0.19041.985

This question was originally asked here, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/971100 , but has since been archived. YouTube videos load when not logged in, but will not load when logged into my YouTube account. They produce the following error:

  • An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: [random generated hash])

The advice offered in the cited Mozilla Support article assumes the problem is with Firefox, and had users delete their entire SQL-Lite cookie database, even though users reported that the error persisted after a clean install. Yes, it can sometimes be a cookie database issue, but this time, MAY 2021, it's a problem with YouTube's ad loader. This has happened before [1]. The work around until they fix it is to click on any suggested video on the same page. As soon as it starts to load, hit the browser's back button, and the error producing video will load.

Hi, I have created a userChrome.css and I have hidden the navigation toolbox with

  1. navigator-toolbox {visibility: collapse;}

Now the problem is that I cannot open any website, I mean I cannot type in any url. Alt + D and Ctrl + L seem to do nothing. So Firefox starts without any gui basically but cannot be used? It's just an empty window frame or shows the starting page (of course, if there are links on the starting page, it works, but how to open a different website?).

Thanks in advance

Is it possible to more specifically control the FIREFOX AUTOMATIC 'UPDATES' notifications than just to select 'NOT NOW' which is offered by the Firefox BUT THEN - this Update Notification/s are being sent 100-1000 (or more times!) again every FEW MINUTES after REQUESTING IT from Firefox ...? This is such an UNNECESSARY and completely AVOIDABLE NUISANCE, which is strongly interfering with many PC-users work and their productivity efforts - for instance during frequent music-recordings, and perhaps many other similar and PC-System-critical applications being interfered by these 'AUTOMATIC UPDATES' ... Any effective advice and help would be greatly appreciated ...! Tony H.

I found a nice site that suggested some advanced preferences tweaks for privacy reason. I followed along with it, but now Firefox will not remember the zoom level of any webpage. If I continue browsing a page in a single tab it'll continue at that zoom level, but if I open something in a new tab, it opens with the default zoom. Not only that, but it won't go to fullscreen on startup. It'll instead start up almost snapped to the left of the monitor it's on. I don't have a clue what setting could have done this. I thought it might be browser.sessionstore.privacy_level, but reverting that didn't have any results.

Well, basically this error is pretty weird, it's like an RGB dots pattern and it doesn't dissapear at all and sometimes it changes color from red to green, purple, brown, etc. I disabled all my extensions and nothing worked (I mostly use privacy extensions but there some that blocks objects like canvas)

This also happened to me with Whatsapp QR codes but I don't remember how it got fixed. From what I know this visual glitch could be caused by a modified preference (I followed privacytools.io's Firefox: Privacy Related "about:config" Tweaks) but I'm not sure and if I was sure I wouldn't know what preference it is.
