Does anyone know any way to force Firefux [Ver 89.0.2 64bit] to stop the repetitious and constantly annoying pop-up that flashes on open, restart, or randomly appears, reminding me to once again update the apparently flawed software. I just updated yesterday!!!! Can I not trust that the programmers know what they're doing and that the system can actually work as expected without the intrusive proof that they screwed up again?! This is the worst business decision to make these things interfere with my workload. Every firefuxn day there's a new update alert!!! It makes me not trust this browser...

Some of my add-ons have disabled themselves and there is no option to enable. I found a potential solution at this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276602 but wanted to clarify what to delete in the Profile Folder. I can't continue that thread because it is too old apparently.

The help says to: Delete all extensions* fileS and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry. There is only ONE FILE starting with extensionS. That would be extensions.json

It says to delete extensions* fileS. Could someone please clarify if I'm supposed to delete: extension-preferences.json extension-settings.json extensions Folder

Thank you!

     <symbol id="E050-0000001930888939" viewBox="0 0 1000 1000" overflow="inherit"/>

</defs>

And included with <g id="clef-0000000126308208" class="clef">

      <use xlink:href="#E050-0000001930888939" x="90" y="2109" height="720px" width="720px" />

</g>

Example SVG file

It shows perfectly well on the screen and prints properly with other browsers (Chrome, Safari). With Firefox, it shows properly on the screen but not when printing.

I keep the "Recommended by Pocket" section collapsed throughout most of the workday to prevent distractions when opening new tabs. Recently I've found the section can't be collapsed anymore. I know that I can disable Pocket on the homepage, but I don't want to do that. I still want it available for me to take breaks or when I'm finishing up with something. The collapse feature was ideal for me.

This may sound petty, but it's a real issue. I would rather stop using Pocket than let it distract me all day. I could write a bookmarklet to deal with it, but not everyone has that option.

Is there still any way to toggle this section? If not, why was this feature removed, and can this feature be brought back?

On one computer Firefox won't login to a certain website - the login screen just remains unchanged - but Edge allows login. On another computer Firefox allows login to the website. I don't understand Firefox and Windows 10 settings well enough to know where to look for a setting that may have been changed. I rebooted the computer and restarted Firefox but the problem persists. What to do?

I'm using Firefox on Linux (Fedora 33) and MATE Desktop. After a recent Firefox update, I noticed that the default scrollbar appearance has changed. Scrollbars in Firefox no longer look like the desktop theme and all the other apps. Instead, they are very thin and have no arrows at the top and bottom. Please see the attached screenshots: Firefox vs. standard application (Pluma text editor). I would like to get the scrollbars back to the desktop theme appearance.

Just to be clear, this is not about websites that customize the scrollbar appearance through CSS. I captured the attached screenshot using a tiny HTML file that I wrote myself and has no CSS. For what is worth, I tried to customize the scrollbars by following the suggestions I had found in other posts, namely through ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css and userContent.css. None of that worked.

Since the recent update to 89.0, I've been experiencing longer than normal initial page loads from start up or wake up for my MBP. Safe mode doesn't seem to matter, and it doesn't matter if a browser window is open and a page loaded or if I'm opening a new browser window, that first page load (or reload) takes much longer than it should (up to 10 seconds to load for example, the Google home page). Once I'm past that initial page load, my browser speed is fine. I also checked Safari and Chrome on this MBE, and neither have this issue, which leads me to believe it isn't a security or some other setting on the Mac.

The instructions say you have to visit the page of the bookmark to delete it. Why can't you have the option to QUICKLY right click on it and press delete?

This question is also a suggestion for someone to program it into Firefox to delete bookmarks by right click, or do we have to use a different browser to have that feature?
