Hello. When I open a new tab in Firefox, there are top sites that I cannot remove. I have set for there to be 4 rows of top sites, but Amazon is not only not pinned, but when I try to dismiss it, nothing happens. I have tried clearing my history, and editing and replacing the link with another site only creates another Amazon top site square. Any help would be much appreciated as it is becoming a pet peeve! XD

Greetings, After not having had access to my home computer for quite a while between the 1st week of February and the end of May, I didnt have a chance to use Firefox ( necesary to have access to my account at Eastman Credit Union as Google Chrome is not supported) i had my eldest son (who lives in the US) to manage my account while I was ouf of commission and keep me up on all the operations conducted on my behalf. But to make a long story short, when i finally was able to use my desktop PC, I was surprised to discovver that theperson who did its maintenance, he "downgraded" my version of Windows7 Ultimate from the 64 bits version -which worked fine- to the 32 bits one. And ... surprise!!- i could not connect to my bank site. I therefore strongly suspect that version is not supported by Firefox. Thus my request for help from any person who would be willing to confirm ot infirm my doubts .. Needless to say, any and help and / or suggestions on how to resolve that issue would be most welcome and I thank you for it in advance Regards from France Pierre GOSSET pgosset5@gmil.com

Hello!

Since some time (hard to say exactly, but Months) I have issue with google maps on my work computer. It's not refreshing view after zooming in or out - some examples: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-08-19-01-53-36-82e04b.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-08-19-01-54-00-884c84.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-08-19-01-54-04-8bc938.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-08-19-01-54-09-beac3a.png

I'm using Firefox 79.0 with uBlock Origin and Pinned WhatsApp extensions. All is running under Windows 7. I tested it in safe mode and maps running OK, however when I switch off my extensions in normal mode it's again not refreshing. The same set of extensions I have also on my gaming and home laptops and Firefox is flawless on those machines. Only obvious difference is Windows 10. Hardware acceleration is Off, but changing that is not helping. Cosmetic Filtering in uBlock is also tested without help. I also tested Chrome on this laptop and it's working OK, IE v. 11.0.28 is not working with GMaps at all after zooming: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-08-19-02-04-04-254007.png

over the last few days there is a small vertical cursor line that appears at the last mouse click location like it's waiting for me to type something there. like the browse button below. if i click outside the box a blinking vertical cursor line appears outside the box where i clicked. it is obviously not a place where input should be expected. this has only started over the last week or so and only with firefox it doesn't happen with chrome. I just opened a story on fox. the title of the story is not a link or a place for me to type or enter text but if i click anywhere in the title text a blinking cursor line appears.
