Good day everyone,

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Thanks

Firefox 80.0 installed on August 27, and has diverted my Google searches to Yahoo and disabled my access to the add-ons page. This appears to be symptoms of known malware. Is there a fix yet? McAfee and MalwareBytes can't find anything.

I read a newspaper that has the following site: https://www.lanacion.com.ar. The stories are shown, no problem with that. There is a comment section at the end of a story. Up until a few months ago it appeared, lately it doesn't show. Safari and Chrome have no problem. The comments are served by livefyre, so I suspect that some setting in Firefox is blocking. I would appreciate some help in finding the setting. Thanks, Francisco

Hi all, I just purchased a new computer, and the first thing that I did was download Firefox onto it. However, I've become frustrated over the last few days, as even though I immediately signed into my Firefox account upon opening the browser, when I close it and then open it back up later on everything is signed out, including my Firefox profile. How do I make it so that every time I open my browser, it is already signed in, and I don't have to type in my username and password over and over again. Thanks in advance for your help!
