I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

Hello!

Since some weeks, I'm getting really often crashes of tabs, and I don't know why. I tried:

- deactivation of all add-ons
- repair of Firefox with the repair option
- uninstall, reinstall
- suppression of all add-ons
- deactivation of options "Use recommanded performance settings" and "use hardware acceleration"

I don't know what to do next, the problem remained through all the stages of this process. Here are my 5 last crashes reports:

- bp-1a94f885-71ec-4d39-a100-bce0d0200125
- bp-493d70b3-7de1-47d0-85e4-15d9b0200125

Thank you for your help! =)

I had a similar problem last year when an auto update came through. After several suggestions didn't help I opted to reinstall a previous version and upgrade that. Now it's back again with the v94 update.

I've disabled ALL extensions. No help. Themes don't seem to make a difference. However, when I went to about:config and entered "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to make it true to allow chrome.css files to work it began immediately. Reset it to false and "X"s are back. Set config to TRUE and it screws up the "X"s. Again, all this is with all extensions off.

I hate the transparency of the tabs and menu bars so I need to set .css files. How else can I do it?

Hi,

I downloaded the new Firefox browser a couple of days ago and now I have lost all my bookmarks.

Does Firefox have a recent backup that I can import?

I clicked on 'Bookmarks', then 'Manage Bookmarks', select restore, but the bookmarks are from months ago.

Where are my current bookmarks?

Also, where is the bookmarks icon which was in the top right-hand corner, how do I access the bookmarks in this new version?


Kind regards,

Maria

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

A few days ago I started to get random popup ads. All of a sudden an ad will op up that says something like "you are at rusk, get Macafee" or "get Norton" etc. The ads pop up in the center of my screen and are about 20% the size of my screen. I have to click the x to get them to close. Sometimes there is the "don`t show me this again" option at the bottom left but even when I click ok the ads continue to pop up.

I`ve tried a few things but can`t figure it out. I`m retired and not a geek so it can get pretty frustrating pretty quick. I`ve lost my patience to scour through help articles looking for the exact sentence I need.

A step by step tutorial would be nice, thank you. I am using a laptop with windows 8.1. I use Firefox.

Thanks David

How to remove (for good) FF message window after screenshot

After I take a screenshot -- using the very handy FF command that now sits on my address bar -- a message box opens in the bottom right of the screen that says, Duh, "your shot was copied to the clipboard" and then gives instructions for pasting it. Although that seems to be fairly elemental information that is unnecessary, even if there is a good reason to keep it, must that message window always be in the same position? That is really a problem as it obscures one's ability to navigate on a page upon which he may be working. Look at the attachment. The FF window is covering the location where I want to put my cursor to work on that page that is in the background. In this case, I wanted to make sure the cursor was positioned in a different place for another screenshot I might put there (below the existing one).

Since I'm familiar with pasting or copying the screenshot and how to do that before this window opens, how can I remove for all screenshots, now and in the future, this window opening?

Thank you.

Prior to formatting pc, I had McAfee Site Advisor installed, was recognized by Firefox, showing on top right of browser. After formatting pc, McAfee Site Advisor installation now not recognized by Firefox, i.e., not showing up on top right of browser, not even showing up in add-ons. Is it blocked now by FF, and if so, any good suggestions? I like the idea of something next to a site showing level of safety. Thanks so much :)

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.

What's the current instruction for deleting IRLs from the address bar pull down menu? This is not about the history, per se, of having been to any location.
