Multi-Account Containers have a drop-down control to give access to things like container preferences for a site. With Firefox 83 (basic and developer editions) this drop down is hidden behind the main browser window. You can just make out the top of the control - but the bulk of the control is being placed behind the main browser content.

Using macos 10.14.6 and Firefox 83. Latest edition of Multi-Account Container add-on.

Is there a way fix this?

For the past few days, Firefox has been running painfully slowly. I have tried to reset it, reinstall it and running Glary Utilities to clean but nothing has worked so far. I also have Opera and Chrome which are running absolutely fine. The program itself starts up fine but just seems to be very slow to load pages.

I am on Windows 10 with latest updates which is run on a separate SSD drive. Everything else runs very quickly like the resource heavy NoxPlayer.

Please let me know what further details I can provide you with.

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I have uninstalled Firefox, restarted, and did a fresh install. I am having the same issue.

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

With Firefox 68.12.0esr and 78.3.1esr I can get to outlook.com. I cannot sign in. Browser responds per attachment.

I've tried;

  • No A/V products running or even installed
  • Renamed Hosts file
  • Rebooted PC
  • Set content blocking to standard
  • Disabled in turn each of url filters, keyword filters and network services filters on my router
  • Run Firefox in safe mode

Windows 10 1809 LTSC. We use only Firefox. No other browsers installed.

Why might only this particular website of all the we use have this problem?

Hey there Tbird gurus:

I get this message when I doubleclick the tbird icon to open up my ver 78.4.3.  (Firefox is ver 83).  It was also occurring with the previous version 

"Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. The old Thunderbird process must be closed to open a new window."

I hit cancel, and T bird opens. Does this mean it's about to crash?

I've had battery issues on my laptop, so the computer has shutdown suddenly with Tbird open before. Is there some temp file that needs deleting?

Thank you for being interested enough to respond. Y'all rock.

For the past week I continue to get page is not responding, stop it or wait message across the top. Allllllll pages, not just social media. it only happens in FireFox. I have ran trouble shooters, reset, etc. Same problem after running for an hour.

Since the last update. Or is that a coincidence?

it takes me tooooo long to get a job done I do not want to use any other browser but starting to think I may need to. FireFox eats up as much CPU and Memory as Google Chrome, which I stopped using because it cause my system to nearly crash. It ate up so much resources.

Yes, ran without plugins. Same issue. yes I run two to three pages at a time. Yes tried doing one at a time.

Same.

Frustrated.
