I have been a Mozilla Firefox user for years, today I used CCleaner and since, have not been able to use Firefox as I wish. I downloaded a new Firefox Browser, installed it, was able to use it for a short while, but when I stopped using the computer for a while and came back to it, I can only get Chrome, and cannot get Firefox up and running again...I have even uninstalled Chrome in the control panel, but it is still popping up when I click on my Firefox icon!! Help!! FF is my default browser, has been for years!!

I have tried to attach a screenshot of Google on my computer, it won't let me attach it, no matter where I save it. How do I get them out of my computer? I need help!!

I have tried task manager, 7 instances of Firefox w/0% CPU, No instance of Chrome showing.

I guess I'm just confused?

Wanted to use the bookmark toolbar to, y'know, highlight important bookmarks, but I have no godly idea how to.

Dragging the site via the padlock to the toolbar does not add it. (I even added a .gif to prove that; how cocky is that?) Putting the location in "Bookmarks Toolbar" also does not.

Also, I saw a video and he could add folders to it by right-clicking, but I don't see that. Is this all because something I enabled? Is this even the bookmark toolbar? Who's the Scranton Strangler?

The new version 89.0.1 forces Google to search in the address bar. I dont like it. I cant read it. The results are not what I'm looking for. I want to retain old Home and ditto new Tabs with Google and Often-used 'favorites'. I cant disable it for Home or new tabs and I wish to keep my old home screen as it was and tuned to my taste.

Why the change without options to keep?

thanx

Starting sometime recently, dropdown menus such as the main menu and the library menu give a white rectangle the size of the menu. Restarting in safe mode does not help. Using a new, empty profile does help. Exiting, deleting my profile cache directory, and restarting does not help.

This is likely related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288037 but that person was helped by deleting the cache directory.

I would prefer not to have to redo all my customizations.

I need to report a situation which may be of interest to Mozilla administration personnel where a major Canadian corporation is stating inflammatory remarks about Firefox security and is restricting Firefox access to customer online accounts. Not knowing a more direct alternative, I am seeking a contact within Mozilla management through this forum with whom I can privately discuss the situation. Any directives would be appreciated.

Hello Mozilla Community,

While selecting all my tabs to move some of them to another window, I misclicked and it opens them all twice.

Immediately after I made the mistake to accept closing what I thought was the doublons, but instead it closed them all except for the few doublons remaining.

There were many important tabs opened months ago, that's why I'm asking help.

I don't know what happened but I found this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742) and followed some of the steps.

I managed to recover the recovery_backlzk4 in excellent state from around twenty minutes before the problem, and tried to read the URLs from it with this person's tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It did not work, so I don't know what to do.

Can someone explain me if there is still something to do about it or not?

Thank you very much

The issue does not happen with Chrome.

I was converting a MS word doc on my computer to an Adobe PDF and saving it on my computer. FireFox changes it to a FireFox HTML (I'm not not even using the Browser). While MS windows 7 lets me choose which way I want to view it (with Adobe or any browser), it is IMPOSSIBLE to post onto Facebook. FB is looking for a PDF and the file I converted to is something else. So now I can't post my PDF's because FireFox intrudes into my computer and changes things. HOW CAN THIS BE RECTIFIED? Can I stop FF from doing this?

My firefox updated to the (horrible) new tabs, and now there's an incredibly annoying black line that appears over my Facebook tab that I can't find any way to get rid of. What does this mean? What is it for? How do I kill this stupid thing? With the (terrible) way the new tabs distinguish between the active tab and the inactive tabs (basically just a slightly different, nearly indistinguishable shade of off-white), this black bar is the most striking visual element on my row of tabs, so it grabs the eye the way the active tab should, and it's confusing and distracting.

Ever since upgrading to FF89, some websites don't increase the font size when I zoom in using ctrl+mouse wheel. The default seems like 9px, really hard to read.

Facebook is a culprit. Also OctoPi, a local service. Facebook, at least, uses rem units. Doesn't react to zooming in.

When I use Gmail in my up-to-date Firefox under Windows 10 or Linux and type e.g. "Leser und Leserinnen", then exit the draft and reopen it, "und Leserinnen" is gone. This happens to all tested feminine forms ending with "-innen", even irregular or non-existing ones, if they follow the masculine form and " und " (both preceded and followed by exactly one space). The truncation is case insensitive, and when I type the feminine form first, "innen" will be cut, and " und [masculine]" as well. Turning off auto-correction didn't help. Also, when I send a mail containing such a double form, it arrives correctly, but in my sent mails " und [feminine]" is gone. However, when I then open "forward" or "reply" with repetition of the sent mail, the deleted words are back in place. None of this happens when I use another browser or an E-Mail client or the Gmail app on my phone, nor does it happen with other mail providers, not even when using Firefox. I know this sounds weird, as if there were an automatic "politically incorrect maker". But it is exactly what happens. I wonder if anyone can replicate the phenomenon or - even better, find out why it occurs.
