Ever since updating Firefox, my search bar has changed. Before I could add frequently visited sites and they would stay on the top bar for easy access. Now it won't even bookmark a site. What do I need to do to fix this?

Firefox is the most comfortable pdf reader on my platform (gnome/wayland) but I still have the main toolbar and the bookmarks toolbar visible while reading. I want them gone, at least for local PDFs, as if it was in full screen mode.

I have my Linux PC set to sleep (i.e. suspend) after a couple hours of inactivity. This works as expected—except for Firefox. Recently, it seems every time I wake the PC from suspend, Firefox is in a “bad state”: there are many pages that simply won’t load. The most common case is I click on a link to go to a new page, and the current page will clear, and the next page will either not load at all (i.e. nothing but a blank screen), or only a very small portion of the page will load.

It is resolved if I kill Firefox and restart it. But this is very annoying, since I deliberately keep over a dozen tabs open.

I thought maybe this was some bug, but it has persisted for several weeks now, across multiple Firefox version upgrades (currently on version 79.0).

The other thing that may be relevant - I recently changed my home directory to be on an auto-mounted NFS share (rather than on the local disk of the PC). I don’t recall if this errant Firefox behavior started at the exact time as making this home directory change or not.

Thank you for any help or advice!

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

I use "MCE Reset Toolbox" to add entry points to WMC for launching websites with Firefox.

See image 1.

The following image is of the settings I used in "MCE Reset Toolbox" for one of the entry points.

See image 2.

Everything worked fine until yesterday when I updated to the latest Firefox v80. Now whenever WMC relaunches after closing Firefox I get the "MCE 7 RESET TOOLBOX Access is denied" message in WMC.

See image 3.

I checked the Firefox release notes for v80, and it mentions that a number new permission policies have been implemented. Maybe that's what's causing the issue.

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/80.0/releasenotes/

Restoring Firefox back to v79 fixes the issue.

Does anyone know what caused this issue or have any ideas how to fix it?

I got a new laptop and downloaded the latest Firefox. However, it does not save PDF's as PDF's anymore; instead, it saves them as Firefox Document. This is annoying. All else works fine, but it created issues when I send them to someone. I have to open them in Adobe, save as PDF and then it works. I've gone into "Options" and changed "Applications" -> Portable Document Format (PDF) to "Action": Use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC but it didn't help.

First of all, I don't need anyone to inform me about the toolbar overflow, because I know all about that, and that's actually the problem. Addon buttons that are in the Overflow Menu that create dropdown menus are all having those menus squished to just the width of the overflow dropdown menu, making information and controls in said dropdown menus inacessible and unable to be seen.

We need to get the ability to make additional toolbars back, to allow any dropdown menus for addons we don't have room for on the main toolbar to be full width and actually usable. I've looked for solutions and the only ones I've found require coding skills far beyond my capabilities. You'd think Mozilla would want their browser to be user-friendly, rather than user-adverse, but they seem to have chosen the latter.

Is there any way to add additional toolbars to Firefox 79.0 that don't require 3 years of coding at college to accomplish?

I tried asking this about 2 weeks ago but never got an answer. My computer is running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6, and for the past month and a half there has been a loooooong printer delay in printing anything from the Internet. It takes anywhere from 45 seconds to a minute for a printer dialogue box to appear after I press a Print icon on Amazon, Ebay, PayPal, and anywhere else. Once it appears I can print just fine, but that delay is getting to be tiresome. I've attempted the "Fix Printing Delays" suggestions in the Mozilla Help area, but nothing I do there has any effect. It's definitely a browser issue, because with the exception of PayPal I can print easily if I use Safari, with no delays. I'd switch over to Safari just to save myself the headache, but PayPal won't print mailing labels on Safari now (security issues with Flash, evidently). Anyone know what's going on here?

Thanks

When I go to my home page the browser's back button becomes inactive and I cannot use it to go back whence I came, i.e. the page on which I was when I clicked the home button.

I noticed that there are several situations when the back button suddenly decides to become inactive and I cannot go back with it, but this is one case that I can remember and can reproduce.

It is rather annoying as I was used from previous browsers (Safari, I am sure) that I could go back every time using the back button (unless the page forwards a hundred times and tricks the back button).

Any ideas?

Upon opening Firefox and loading my start-up page for the first time each day, any URL I type into the address bar and try to surf to does nothing when I hit ENTER. I always have to re-click in the address bar a second time or type in a new URL and hit ENTER for Firefox to start loading that page. The issue does not occur when I click on any of my bookmarks in my Bookmark Toolbar upon startup. Just when I type a website into the address bar.
