New Lap Top. Downloaded and installed Firefox Browser 80.0.1 (64-bit). I am unable to Edit/select, customize some options. For Example: I am unable to choose to have Firefox ask to save passwords. I can add them one by one when viewing logins and passwords. Its time consuming and cumbersome. Why can I not turn this option on??

Windows 10 gesture two finger swipe left and two finger swipe right doesn't work in Firefox. Two finger swipe left allows user to go history backward and two finger swipe right allows user to go history forward. These gestures work in Firefox if the user hold Alt key and preform the gestures. But most of the users don't like to hold Alt key and preform the gestures. Please fix that issue.

One of the reasons I'm still using 56 is that the start page preference and home page preference are separate. I can set the browser to start with a blank page, but then if I wish to quickly go to my home page I can just click on the icon in the address bar. Don't know why this feature was downgraded in the new versions, but I'd like to update - so how can I make this be so in the new version of Firefox? I want to set the start page different from the home page like 56.

I run Firefox, Edge, and IE (rarely) on my laptop. Only Firefox requires Adobe Flash Player because Windows products have a flash player built in to the application. Because Adobe Flash Player EOL is coming up, have Mozilla developers created a work-around so that users can see content after Dec 2020? Sorry if I am unaware of a fix already in place. Thank you.

I bought a new computer and everything synced except My password manager. The new computer doesn't list SaasPass Free Password Manager when searching add-on extensions. This was the third try on a manager I liked. My laptop has Firefox 80.0.1, and the extension works great, my new desktop computer has 80.0.1 installed also, but Saaspass is not to be found.

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

Hi, I experimented for maybe 30 mins trying to get rid of a white border at the top of the browser but were unsuccessful and the others mentioning border problems seems to suffer more from a white thick line surrounding all sides...

Basically, I got a new computer and with it the latest firefox update. I never noticed how prominent the top border of the browser is, especially in dark mode and I'm wondering if there's a way to get rid of it and move the minimize/close browser buttons down to the tab section of the browser instead? And if that doesn't work, is there a way to darken the top border to the same black as the rest of the browser?

Kind regards Thomas

Can Addon read paswords ? from all the sites I visit? almost all addons require "access your data for all websites ?" can they all potentially access my accounts?

Is there a setting to get the contrast back on the Gmail web page? When I load the site I can't see the select icons/boxes down the left hand side, nor the action icons at the top of the page like delete, mark as read, report spam etc. They are there because when I hover over where they should be with the mouse I get the text showing. They are quite faint in Windows but not showing at all in Linux. I have tried changing colours and different themes but nothing works.
