Hi, in the last few versions of Firefox, every time I open a private window, I get the private browser splash page and I can see that the main Address/Search bar is in focus and I even see the cursor blinking (and it says search with Google or enter an address as usual).

However if I try to type anything nothing happens. I have to click out of the search bar and click it again and only then can I type in the bar.

This only happens when I open a new private window. If I make a new private tab, the bar gets focus and I can type normally. It's only on the first open of a new window where I can't type anything in it initially.

On the new home page with all those web site icons, and also in Bookmarks, SOME but not most web sites require you to click, slowly, to open a web page. Otherwise nothing happens. The most common is Microsoft Outlook web mail, as used by our University as standard email (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). This started a couple of Firefox updates ago.

I find nothing about it anywhere.

The delay between clicks needs to be quite long like a second or more. In some cases up to 30 seconds works. At a couple of seconds it always works. If I close outlook and then try again later, after a minute of so that usually but not alwas does not happen, but after an hour, always.

If I start up Web Developer Network before trying, it says it sends a "get" but a red "circle with line through it" icon (i.e. the usual "don't" one) appears with "blocked" written in red.

How do I fix this?

The last three times Firefox updated, the Fox icon on the Windows 10 task bar was replaced by a generic one. To restore the Fox icon, the generic one has to be unpinned, but that deactivates it and does not remove it. Then, selecting the generic icon results in a missing item error message and the error box has a selection to remove it. Then a new shortcut needs to be created from the Firefox exe file in the Program Folder and dragged to the task bar. Any idea what is happening and why, and preferably how to prevent it?

As you can see from the attached screenshot (it's amusing that the screenshot utility was captured in it), Firefox ESR has an enlarged URL textfield. It recently appeared on Debian-based systems, along with the more annoying bug solved by cor-el in my previous post. It appears when Firefox ESR is first started and on new tabs. I'm sure this is another about:config solution, but I have no idea what to search on.

On Linux (Pop OS) when the mic or webcam is active, a notification is displayed. This is great and useful for security.

However, I cannot move or click on or do anything with it. The most annoying thing for me is it pops up directly over my system clock (See screenshot attached).

Is this icon supposed to be movable? Is clicking it supposed to do something (like activate the tab using the mic/webcam)? Is this a missing feature or bug?

I've seen some solutions regarding a custom css file that hides it entirely, but I'd still like to know when a tab is accessing it. I just want to be able to move it out of the way!

I signed off my computer and closed all apps. When I sign back on and went to Firefox, all of my open windows and tabs were gone. I have tried all the instructions of how to restore the previous sessions. By now, mine is not the previous session, but the session last week. It even looks like that there have been some changes in the bar where I put "Google" to pull up the search page. I have tried all the instructions. Does anyone know how to restore my tabs and open window from a week ago. I had LOTS of them

Any help is appreciated

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

I downloaded & installed a newer vs of Firefox, only to find the new launch screen informing me that this is now using a 'new profile' and 'it can't be deleted,' but I can get access to my last bookmarks by setting up a Firefox Account and profile. Done - ish. I'm not sure the process completed as I do not have another device to register to this newly created account. Meanwhile, all of my bookmarks are MIA, and there are no folders called 'bookmarkbackups' and there are no other Mozilla files and folders anywhere on my HD that don't have today's date as last modified. HELP!!! please.

This all started when I could no longer download pdfs from shared folders (accessed last week) on the Google (evil) platform. Our IT guy suggested I update my browser version, since I had no problem when I tried a test and downloaded the pdfs w/ease using Chrome(also evil). So I updated my Firefox browser because I don't want to be forced into using Chrome as my primary browser - ever. Now I seem to be totally hosed - by Mozilla this time. You know, I was perfectly happy and well served running vs ~66. And this kind of thing is exactly why I don't like updates. Please help me and restore my previously unwavering faith and loyalty to Mozilla. I have been using Mozilla web browsers exclusively since 1993/4(?) (I don't think it was even called Firefox then). Please help.

The Citicard virtual account launcher has stopped working in firefox. It used to work. A note has always said to disable popup blockers before launching, but I didn't need to do so in the past. I have now specifically allowed popups for https://online.citi.com, which is the page containing the launch button, but this doesn't help. I can see the launch button change color when I move over it and click, but nothing happens. I also temporarily unchecked the Block popup windows option, but that didn't work either. This popup applet works in Edge, but I'd rather use Firefox. Any help would be appreciated.
