After the last update 84.0.2 the "Other bookmarks" folder appeared on the bookmarks bar. I have not found a way to remove it and I find it useless and annoying as it takes away space for other more commonly used bookmarks. Anyone can give me instructions on how to make it disappear from my bookmarks bar. On another computer not yet updated to version 84.02 even with the synchronization active, the problem does not exist.

Thanks to those who want to help me.

Hi, I have FF 85, there is some setting that doesn't allow a new tab to open, without me having to give permission each time (another step and a time waster). Everything I have found, tells me to go to general settings and then go to "advanced" at the bottom of the general list and to change the setting there. There is no "advanced link to click, so I can't change this damn setting. This drives me crazy, as all help tells me to "go somewhere, that is not there". Help........why is it so difficult to change this simple setting, that was probably set incorrectly at some time in the past......... Help

Hello, I am still running Win7. After this morning reboot, firefox did not start, messaging: "Der Prozedureinsprungspunkt "sql3lite_database_file_object" wurde in der DLL "nss3.dll" nicht gefunden. After that a message windows says: "Couldn't load" XPCOM. I tried to reinstall firefox downloading it with another browser, but the installation (I am now working with) seems to be somehow parallel, i.e. I don't have my profile and extensions, passwords, etc. And the look ist different.

Thanks in davance for any help.

OK, I hope you can help me. This is not exactly a problem because it may be due to my ignorance.

When I go to the "Get Help" screen for Firefox or Thunderbird the is a search area which allows me to search all the help articles. Problem is there are usually way too many possible answers.

I do not know how to limit the results.

Usually, the more you type the fewer responses. But with Mozilla's search the more I type the more I get.

Some sites use a Boolean symbol to limit responses (e.g. ^ for not). Some use all upper case to identify a Boolean request (e.g. NOT for not equal). I have tried both and they do not seem to work.

So, is there a way of limiting the search results in the Mozilla Help Search ?

Thank you for your help. I hope I explained this well enough to get a response.

How do I shift the tab list slightly to the right using CSS?

Recently, I downloaded a userChrome file to make Firefox resemble an old version of Google Chrome. Everything looks pretty good so far, except for one issue: part of the first/leftmost tab always gets cut off, as you can see in the first attached image.

What I want to do is add a small amount of blank space or padding to the left of the first tab so that the full tab is visible, sort of like what I have in the second image (I took that image by dragging the tab manually, which I obviously can't do while browsing).

I also want to shift the rest of the tabs to the right by the same margin, so that I don't mess up the overlap pattern. How do I do this?

For reference, I'm running Firefox 84.0.2 (I just changed the browser icons and website favicons with resource hacker). If you want, you can download my userChrome file here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=05793638977830057143.

Hi!

I'm on a Dell xps 9310, ubuntu 20.04, Firefox version 84.0.

Whenever I'm scrolling or moving the mouse over the screen while on Firefox, I get greyish patches of pixel-like blocks over the screen. As far as I'm concern, it just happens on firefox as of right now and on no other browser (Chrome) or other apps.

I tried something that was suggested over another problem and go to preferences->General->Performances-> Untick the 2 boxes, but it doesn't solve the problem.

Anyone have any idea what might be happening here?

Thank you!
