I'm using Windows 10 and just updated to Firefox 78.0.1 last night. Normally, when I open a new tab, I push the down arrow key to bring up my browser history and access my most-used sites. Upon updating last night, I discovered that I can no longer do this. When I press the down key, nothing happens. To get the same result I'm used to, I have to press the space bar, but I've been doing this a certain way for several years and the motion is completely ingrained in me. If I turn Top Sites back on in the options, the drop-down list will open upon pressing the down key, but that of course only brings up the Top Sites. That's not what I want. I tried rolling back to the previous version, 77.0.1, but that didn't fix anything. If I create a new profile, the problem persists. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know it sounds like an extremely minor issue, and maybe that's true, but I just want to use my browser the way I like using it. I'd appreciate any help/input.

Also, I suppose I should mention that I didn't make any changes to my preferences prior to this issue.

I have auto update and installation checked. I have very few sites where ABP allows ads. I have Bitdefender for antivirus. I have reset Firefox at least 5 times this past 6 weeks. This has gotten old. I have tried starting without the Add-ons, but what's the sense of having Add-ons available then? If I try to use Firefox with the autoplay feature for videos on sites like NFL.com or NASCAR.com, Firefox will in short time crash (Firefox is not responding), ..usually when I have more than 2 tabs open, but has done it with a singular tab open. As a matter of fact, it will sometimes crash before loading the page. If I use FIrefox with autoplay disabled, I can't even prompt the video to play. It doesn't even show up in the play section when prompted. So what's the sense of that? After resetting Firefox, I fail to understand why in the most viewed panel, why my most viewed aren't there after each reset? Also, why doesn't it populate my most viewed consistently? That being, if I go to the same sites all the time, why don't they show as most viewed? I get sites showing up I've only been to once in a month, instead of multiple times in a day. My final thing...why does Edge keep prompting me to install it while using Firefox? I have Edge already installed when Firefox crashes and it has a fresh install from just 2 weeks ago. But I still get these annoying notifications. I know this is long, but this is what happens when you try diligently to do as the instructions show in the Help section multiple times...only to come to the same conclusion. Can someone please help?

This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

Hi,

I cannot find the way to remove the Adblock Plus extension for the life of me. It says "Can't be removed". I re-started in Safe-Mode, and it still cannot be removed. I did Firefox's "fresh re-install" thing, which is supposed to remove all extensions, and it's still there. Should I report the extension? Help.

Thanks

I noticed on the latest version that printing does work correctly when using an SSL connection. If you select to print (not in the browser, choosing the feature on the web page) the browser appears to hang with no response for several minutes. Then an error box appears stating printing functions are not available. You can still select File>Print in the browser. But the problem is when you try to print certain information that is embedded in the page (i.e. results from a medical test, a receipt from a credit card payment) you have to utilize the print link on the page to get the correction information to print. I tested in Chrome and Safari and neither ome have this issue. It's only in the latest build of Mac Firefox.

this extremely annoying hyperlink tool tip pops up and gets in the way of mouse clicks. if im not careful I'll accidentally click it instead of what i intended to click on. it likes to pop up over my email check boxes too when im trying to select mail to delete. if i do accidentally click on it, it will follow the link using the tab im currently on which is the brunt force of the annoyance. it absolutely gets in the way and infuriates me to no end. I dont have any add-ons that specifically relate to it, and i cant find anything doing a google search that relates to it either.

I have a bookmarks menu link on the bookmarks toolbar. When I save a new bookmark to one of the folders it does not appear. It does appear when I click on the saved history icon. However, if I open the bookmarks sidebar from the history icon and navigate to the same folder, the new bookmark appears but it is missing many other bookmarks that are in the other folder.. I can also save the bookmark to the toolbar and it appears there. Also I can cut an paste the bookmark from the toolbar to the folder. I've tried disabling add-ons and that doesn't fix the problem. There clearly are two sets of bookmarks. How do point Firefox to the one I want?

Firefox usually works great, but starting last night it has been messing with my computer like crazy.

I have a wireless mouse, and a Wacom tablet/pen. Everything has worked fine, but starting last night I had to Restore Down the Firefox window with the Wacom because nothing happens when I try with my mouse. Once the window is has been Restored Down, my mouse freezes, and I have to go into Task Manager with the keyboard to get it to work again. I then have to use my Wacom as a mouse if I want to click something in the taskbar, the mouse for the start menu and any non-Firefox programs, and Firefox will just not work at all. I can't switch/open new tabs, I can't click the address bar, or the search bar, I can't go to a different site, or anything.

I have to open Task Manager to close out Firefox, then everything works fine. I reopen Firefox and it works fine except not being able to use the Minimize, Rrestore down, and Close buttons without using my Wacom, and then when I do, the cycle repeats.

I have tried unplugging things, putting in new batteries, nothing has worked and I don't know what could be causing this issue when Firefox has worked great for me all these years. I'm currently running a virus scan on my PC, but I don't see why it would ONLY be effecting Firefox.

My settings should not allow any changes to 'Top Sites' yet FF (currently 78.0.2) will change my sties w/o permission. This seems to happen if a new version becomes available and I don't immediately update to it. Should not happen.

How can I solve for this when the settings already should make it impossible? This 'auto change' won't hose my bookmarks, it's relatively minor since it keeps some of my top sites. But it's really odd. I use only uBlock Origin, the rest is plain vanilla.

Thank you.
