Hi - I'm having an issue with Firefox, well its been ongoing for some weeks but just getting around to it..

My problem is that Firefow will not download files. I have tried the trouble shooting steps and its not a firewall issue because my other browsers will download - as a developer I have all the major browsers installed.

Also I changed the settings to have Firefox request the download folder for each downlod - but it doesn't. Anyway I am about to reinstall will post back then.

Maybe should have done that first.

Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Opening links from external applications (i.e.: Outlook, Word, a PDF, etc.) begins to open a new tab in Firefox, sometimes it'll open a "full" tab-width before hanging, more often than not, I'll see a sliver of the new tab while Firefox sorts itself out.

Typically when this happens, I'll see upwards of 50% CPU usage from Firefox itself. Memory seems sane.

Hardware acceleration, whether it's on or off, makes no difference. Issue persists in safe-mode, and safe-mode with add-ons disabled. Issue persists in Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition.

Hey guys, I'm having some issues when using Firefox with a 4K monitor.

Whenever I resize the window to 768px using either the Inspector or a website page builder like Elementor (as an example), it actually resizes the window to 767.833px.

This causes a lot of websites to break, as most have styling for (max-width: 767px) and (min-width: 768px).

This has existed for months now, and doesn't happen on Chrome. In Chrome, 768px shows as 768px.

Any ideas on why this is happening, or how to fix it?


Thanks!

Hello, I use FF for our ticket system at work and I am not really a user of keyboard shortcuts. For me it is more a disadvantage, because while typing in the ticket system the CTRL-A, CTRL-N and so forths bindings are doing nonsense. This sometimes happens if I press CTRL and not SHIFT. So, all in all, it is me to blame and not FF. But if FF ignores my miskate, it is a big improvement in my daily work.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Björn

The title basically says it all already. In the documentation of the new tab page it tells you how to remove them, but not how to add them. There should be a way however. For some reason, the pocket suggestions disappeared from my new tab page, and I haven't found a way to get them back. I know from another machine that under settings there should be a check box that you can tick to enable or disable pocket suggestions on the new tab page, but on the system in question, this option is simply not there. How to fix?

I have a dual monitor setup with one monitor above my laptop screen. After I play a fullscreen video in Firefox on the top display there will be a one pixel segment of the Firefox window showing at the top of the laptop display whenever the Firefox window has focus and is maximised on the top display.

The way to make it disappear is to close and relaunch Firefox.

Troubleshooting so far: 1) I have tried fullscreen with different video sites and had the same issue. 2) I have tried with another browser (Edge) and didn't have the same issue.

Good morning all I am new in this house. Guido van Wijk, application engineer at RDC in Amsterdam (rdc.nl). We host large internet applications for the automotive industry in the Netherlands. Java based. 8.000 users. In this web-applications html, exit buttons are built-in to return to user-menu's where our customer (automotive company's such as car-dealers) can make an new choice to enter a new application. These exit-buttons perform wel under FireFox 78.x. The men is shown. Since the Firefox 79.0 update these buttons do not function anymore. Either the application-screen stays untouched (as the menu should be shown) or a full white screen is shown. Whic is also wrong. I have tested with an older Ffox 78.0 version on another PC and then everything works fine. What's going on here. I am not an software engineer.

The images show an example of 1 of our web-apps, OKR with the uitlogbutton, logout. And the usermenu which should be shown then. This works Ok with Ffox 78, not anymore with 79.0

Somehow Firefox's address bar gets worse and worse every year (I've been using Firefox since 2004). I have it set both on my desktop computer and my Microsoft Surface to just show my bookmarked pages (since I can no longer control what pages show up on the drop down menu otherwise); this used to be fine (other than not being able to bookmark a ton of pages to keep it from being cluttered), but now nothing shows up on my Surface unless I type in the address bar. If I click the bar, nothing happens. It works fine on my desktop. I've messed with different settings trying to figure it out.

I used to use an addon called Oldbar or something to have some control over my address bar like the old days, since Mozilla saw it fit to take that control away from us, but now that addon no longer works. I just want a controlled list of my frequently visited websites. Why bother having a search bar if the address bar STILL tries to do searches? If I wanted to do a search, I would use the search bar. FIX THE ADDRESS BAR.

I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials
