So when I try to click on a youtube video, quite often it will go to a different video or a poll that is associated with someone I am subscribed to or have viewed previously. The only way I get around this is opening the video in a different tab.

I recently updated my bookmarks b/c after the latest update, most of mine disappeared. I set everything back up and it worked for a day. Then, I left my browser up for two days without closing out and when I came back to my PC, the links don't work. The favicons are now not showing either anymore. I've looked online but didn't see any instructions I felt confident to follow in order to fix. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Alex

Every time I download anything a status bar showing the item I downloaded as a tab appears at the bottom of the screen. I cannot find any option to disable that so that it ceases to appear. It is a rather recent addition to Firefox so I'm guessing there's a hidden option somewhere that will allow me to achieve my goal.

Any suggestions, please?

Hello!

I have two different problems.

Bookmark toolbar disappears at every firefox restart, nevertheless I set it to 'Always show'.

The second problem is that my add-ons icons disappears at every firefox restart, leaving a blank space that I can click and that shows a small rectangle with no function. I have to go inside the add-ons settings de-activating and activating the add on to show it properly again.

Any thoughts?

Firefox just updated, without my permission, which is another problem. But now when i try to open pdf files, firefox always ask what to do. In Options > General > Appliacations i set pdf files to open with firefox, but firefox still asks what to do. In the window where it asks what to do, there is a tick box saying "Do this automatically from now on", even if i choose that option it still ends up asking what to do the next time i open a pdf file.

Hi I've been trying to get a friend's Firefox working for him, on a 64bit W10 install, but every time it just crashes immediately.

I've uninstalled Firefox, though I had to go to the uninstall folder as it wasn't listed under Apps

I've tried downloading the full installer, installing to a different folder

Firefox never gets as far as showing in Task Manager

I've got a number of crash reports which are just empty text files; their IDs are: bp-490fe8de-2b11-47b9-a9e5-3c5950200309 bp-7152bf43-39d0-48f4-a70b-039ca0200309 bp-a362807e-de39-431d-b71a-f23790200309 bp-cde0b6c5-559f-4e6f-9b2b-3b7b50200309 bp-e87b5d15-29ad-4223-8241-d742f0200309 bp-fd5ee411-1ef2-48f8-9520-5080a0210315

Can anyone give me a clue as to what might be wrong? Thanks

PS - Chrome is also liable to crash, but Edge seems OK.

I've had Firefox installed and working in W-10 for a long time, yesterday it suddenly got minimized to the task bar and nothing I tried would open it. I had to use Chrome to search for advice, and it turns out that other users had the same problem. I tried the suggestions (alt-spacebar-move) etc. but nothing worked. I had to got to "Uninstall" and the opted for the "Refresh" function to restore Firefox to a functional Browser. It's now working again, but what caused it? and is it likely to happen again? Thanks for your attention  :)

Dear Sir or Madam,

I like to install Firefox with the online stub setup, because it installs the latest version automatically. But in the first installation english is predefined and has to be changed later in settings manually (for every user account).

Is there the possibillity for a stub-setup (not the offline-version!) that installs Firefox in german language directly and if yes, can you tell me where I find the download for it?

With kind regards.

My wife has both Firefox 86.0 NS Firefox 86.0.1 installed on her computer. She continues to experience tab crashes and other problems when playing casino games on Facebook. I don't know if the fact that 2 versions are installed is causing the problems, but I only have 86.0.1 on my computer and don't have any problems. The problem is, I tried to remove 86.0, but it will only allow me to refresh. The same is true for 86.0.1. Does she need to get rid of 86.0 and how can she do it? Thanks for any help you can give me.
