How can I move the Open Menu (hamburger) button to the Left side with Firefox 60 using CSS in the Userchrome.css file?

I want to combine two customizations in Firefox 60: 1 Move the tabs to below the Address bar and Bookmarks toolbar; and 2. Move the Open Menu (hamburger) button to the left hand side in Firefox 60. Unfortunately, "customize" does not allow one to move the Open Menu button in FF60 (it is greyed out in "Customize"). I can do each of these steps separately with the following CSS customizations in the UserChrome.css file inside my profile, but am not sure how to combine the two together. For 1. the following works: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1185426 For 2. the following works: https://github.com/Timvde/UserChrome-Tweaks/blob/master/hamburger/move-to-top-left-Linux-Windows.css but combining them messes up the position of the Open Menu button - I am not skilled in CSS. Can anyone suggest a CSS that will do both tasks together? Or is there a simpler solution to both that I am missing?

The two CSS respectively are: 1. Move the tabs to below the address bar and bookmarks toolbar: ________________

/* Tab bar below Navigation & Bookmarks Toolbars
  For best results, show Title Bar or Menu Bar */
  #nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
  border-top-width: 0 !important; 
   }
    #PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
   -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
   }
   #TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
   }

________________ 2. Move the Open Menu button to the LHS: ________________

/*
 * Move the hamburger menu to the top left, before the first tab
 *
 * Contributor(s): Alex Vallat
 */

#PanelUI-button {
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0;
  border-left: none !important;
  position: absolute;
}

:root[uidensity=compact] #PanelUI-button {
  margin-top: -28px;
}

#PanelUI-button {
  margin-top: -30px;
}

:root[uidensity=touch] #PanelUI-button {
  margin-top: -36px;
}

#TabsToolbar {
  /* Ensure the padding is always present even when maximized */
  padding-inline-start: 40px !important;
}

According to my options dialog, Google is my default search engine. However, when I type any text in the address bar, the browser uses Yahoo to perform the search. Every answer I see tells me to go to "options" and change the default to Google, but Google is already set as the default.

I want the address bar default search enfine to be Google.

Why did Firefox Quantum stop supporting the Weather Channel website's hourly forecast pulldowns, while Edge still supports them?

When I'm on the US Weather Channel's website (I use the URL of "https://weather.com/weather/today/l/USMA0518:1:US" ) for the "Hourly" forecast pulldown menus for where I live in New England. When I click on the "Next 8 Hours" text at the bottom of the basic list while browsing with the latest version of Firefox Quantum (v.62, in 64-bit version) to view the next eight hours' worth of hourly forecasts, NOTHING happens to reveal the hourly forecast updates; while on the version of Microsoft Edge (currently dated for May 21, 2018) clicking on the "Next 8 Hours" actually reveals "the next 8 hours" of weather forecasts, like Firefox Quantum USED to.

I use the latest "v.1803" version of Windows 10 X64 for my operating system, and so far, where I'm someone who DOES need to check the Weather Channel for such forecasts as a "matter of routine"...should I simply drop Firefox Quantum 64-bit for MS Edge, or can the strictly 64-bit Waterfox browser be a better choice (AND still allow me to use that "Next 8 Hours" pulldown, as Edge still does)?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

Hi all,

I tried everything but nothing seems to work. Yesterday when I opened my computer all bookmarks and history were gone.

      • I received this msg "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." ***

Hence I tried with all of the following options and nothing has worked yet.

-I tried the "places.sqlite" file solution multiple times (renaming, deleting, etc.). Did not work. -I tried refreshing Firefox solution (completely new profile). Did not work. -I tried deleting & reinstalling Firefox. Did not work. -I also try restoring bookmarks from library and a new error message shows: "Unable to process the backup file." -I tried to export my back-up HTML bookmarks that I saved from 3 months ago. Guess what? Did not work. -I tried to get the bookmarks from other browser (chrome) and it did not work either.

Can any of you help me recovering the bookmarks please? Thanks in advance.

I have been using multi-level bookmark folders with a lot of URLs for awhile and they worked fine. Upon upgraded to Firefox Ver. 60.2.0esr (32-bit) yesterday, however, I can not find where they are any more. Basically, I have no idea what is the new entry point to these folders from the new basic FireFox screen. Since I have been saving HTML backup files regularly, I tried to follow that procedure to make a new backup and it did get saved to my H/D with the content organized like all the earlier ones. I tried to import one of the earlier backups. It seemed to work. Yet, I could not find where did it go afterwards. I do find some single level / linear listings of many URLs of sites that I visited previously under "Other Bookmarks". Most of them were a long time ago (I can even remember the subject.). Although I spotted some that are fairly recent (within the past month). But, surprisingly, one has triple identical entries. This is very puzzling. Please provide some guidance. Thanks a lot,

Hello, Yesterday Firefox 52 ESR has updated automatically to version 60 ESR. Version 60 does not support Java.

All official Portuguese government Customs and Export websites user java based forms. All updated versions have stopped working with those websites.

If I go to the ESR webpage and try to download the 52 version, the link automatically downloads the v60.

Help is appreciated.

I am trying to solve a long term 'Web Content uses too much CPU and slows down the computer' issue and for that I have just read through some support articles including https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/performance-settings.

Now, it states: "having too many content processes can slow down your computer, and consequently, Firefox". By default I read this as a cpu issue.

On the other hand, it also states: "Additional content processes can improve performance when using multiple tabs, but will also use more memory. "

So my question is, does a high content process limit can also lead to high cpu usage or only to high memory usage?

Firefox 63.0b3 (64-bit) OS: MacOS 10.13.6

History: Setting "Always use private browsing mode" is enabled.

Tracking Protection: Use Tracking Protection to block known trackers: Always

Problem: there's no way to add a site to list of exceptions in "Tracking protection" section.

Enabling setting "Disable blocking temporarily" just disables tracking protection for one session (browser restart) but does not add the site to the list of exceptions.
