Did Firefox 74 introduce a minimum windows size? Can it be disabled?

Hi,

I like to work with side-by-side Firefox windows, with one of the windows being far slimmer (horizontally) than the other. Since I updated to Firefox 74.0 today, I can't resize the windows as I like to do. I can resize them, but it's like there's a minimum fixed size to what I can resize it to and then it locks and doesn't go any slimmer from there (maybe so the browser controls don't overlap?). That fixed size is far too big for my use case, i.e. I absolutely need it slimmer. I'm not entirely sure if the previous Firefox version contained a fixed minimum size, but if it did, it was much smaller (it allowed controls to overlap, which wasn't a problem for me)

Is there a setting that I can change in Firefox 74 so that I can make the windows as slim as I require again?

WHY? Is it time to switch default to Chrome AGAIN?

I tried removing some unnecessary plugins but it didn't help.

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin

This is a copy of my feedback I've just submitted to Mozilla directly in Firefox 62.0 Stable on my 15.6 inch full HD Dell Inspiron 7558:

I can read the New Jersey statutes on this website on Firefox for iOS on my 64 GB iPhone 6s, but oddly enough, not on Firefox 62.0 Stable on Windows 10 build 17134. I contacted the webmaster of the New Jersey Legislature, and to my surprise, he said he was unable to reproduce any problems on Firefox 62.0 Stable or on a similar system. I'll write to the webmaster again with a copy of this feedback to Mozilla directly in Firefox. Next month, I will upgrade my 15.6 inch full HD Dell Inspiron 7558 to the Windows 10 October 2018 update using the Windows Upgrade Assistant Program as soon as it comes out. Until this is fixed, I'll try Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer as he suggested to read the statutes on my PC.

Hi I've been a happy Firefox user for many years now. For no obvious reason, the ebay signin page stopped working yesterday, 26 March 2019, when using Firefox. It also doesn't work on Windows Explorer. But I have just downloaded Chrome (on ebay customer service advice) and found that the ebay signin page works fine on Chrome. I don't want to have to use Chrome - it is a product of the Evil Empire which works to enslave humanity. Please, please would you harness the mighty power of the Mozilla Monster to stamp on whatever vile bug the Ebay/Google Evil Empire have just created? Trusting in the Mighty Mozilla, and with many thanks, RWaddington

Why am I seen these symbols?

Security consultants have advised that cipher suites using the SHA1 hash are no longer considered secure and should not be enabled.

Using the nmap tool we can identify which cipher suites use the SHA1 hash.

On our webserver, (IIS version 8.5 on Windows 2012 R2 ) if we eliminate cipher suites that contain the SHA1 hash, the Firefox browser cannot browse the site. Error displayed = Secure Connection Failed - PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR We tested versions up to Firefox ( v75.0 ).

Other browsers such as Chrome and IE have no issues browsing our site with the SHA1 hash disabled.

Once the SHA1 hash is enabled, Firefox works fine. Seeking a solution that will satisfy the security folks and our Firefox users.

It seems that over the last two months firefox has been causing my hd to run at 100% for long periods. I have followed advice on the internet and disabled a number of searches within the pc settings that originally helped and also updated the power plan to high performance which initially helped.

Every hour or so my pc goes into a phase of running its hd at 100% to the point that I cannot even type in the search bar. Indeed it has taken over 30 minutes to finally get to the position of being able to type this query.

the pc is not that old and has light usage and all memory appears to be working fine. If this does not fix then I will have to go over to Chrome.
