Firefox has been my default browser forever but suddenly has started glitching! It will work for about 10 minutes but then the glitch happens and all of the top of the screen loses its text and turns into black/white color boxes that looks pixelated and the whole program freezes. In the picture posted, the glitching continues down the right side of the screen too. If I quit Firefox, it starts up fine again (with all browsing tabs lost) but then the error will occur again in a short while.

How can I hide the full address of the website like I can in Safari? Like, in Firefox, the full address of the website is always visible, unlike in Safari, you can hide the full address of the site in the address bar. e. g. Google Earth is https://earth.google.com, right? In Safari, what you would see by default until you clicked the address bar; google.com. the reason, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.17%20PM.png]

In Safari, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%203.59.41%20PM.png Google Earth on Safari]

In Firefox, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.59%20PM.png Google Earth on Firefox]

Just in case the file links don't work, uploaded images below (in order)...

But then, if this feature doesn't exist, at least add this feature

I am running the latest FireFox (77.0.1) on Mac OS 10.15.4. Occasionally when I return to a tab that I see

[object Window]

This seems to happen most frequently for Google apps (e.g. gmail) but I have seen it for other pages. I have seen this when all extensions are turned off.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

After upgrading to Firefox 77, I have trouble reaching internal websites the way I used to. My company uses a custom internal top level domain for internal services, let's call it `mytld`. If I enter a domain such as `webservice.mytld` in the address bar, I end up in search results on Google. Previously, I would end up on https://webservice.mytld/ as expected.

I have found a partial solution with the setting `browser.fixup.domainwhitelist.webservice.mytld`. The issue I have with that solution is that I have to configure every single service that way. I would rather have a solution where I can educate Firefox to understand that `mytld` is a valid TLD for me.

I recently had to change the email address that I have had for many years because Vodafone decided unilaterally no longer to support the sub-domain.

I changed from: [email]hoof.demon.co.uk

to: [email]@hoofratings.co.uk

Having registered my new email address, I tried to get into my pocket list but all the pages saved over several years have gone and I am having to start again from scratch.

I tried to get in by using the old email address, but of course that is no longer recognized.

The new email address simply gets me to a virgin pocket.

Is there any way I can get my legacy pocket back and accessible under the new email address?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi out there-

I would greatly  appreciate advice about how I can fix this problem with restoring my  Google home page. I have no idea how I lost it since I made no changes to it. It was simply there last night and gone this morning. I am a writer and I make a living from the Internet so time lost is money  lost. 

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Befuddled in PA,

Marjorie

Yesterday I tried to log in to my Yahoo account as usual, via Firefox. The tab always says AT&T Yahoo log in and then I can see my e-mails. This time the screen was blank. I can log in from Google Chrome and Safari but I want to us Firefox because I think it is safer. A couple of days ago, I logged out of my e-mail but kept Firefox open, in sleep mode. I think something hacked Firefox. I need help restoring it!!

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM
