Video download helper is installed but icon is missing from toolbar and cannot be found where I'm told to look when I google the problem (i.e., view/toolbars/customize). Nor can I drag it to the toolbar from where I find it when I look under triple bar/addons and themes in the upper right corner of the toolbar. Where else should I look to find it?

My problems started after the upgrade to 113 when Firefox would no longer load at all. I tried deleting and reinstalling, but nothing changed until I moved the profile (yeah profile mgr didn't work either). I finally got it to reinstall and ran sync but had to also reinstall my extensions/addons. The extensions appear to be working, but the are not displaying in either the toolbar area or in customizations.

I have tried searching all over and different solutions but thus far nothing has worked. That includes right clicking on the extension and selecting to add it to the toolbar.

I repeat, the extensions appear to be working though I cannot call some of them up (EverNote for example), and I need Lastpass on the toolbar for password generation and to access the vault.

Extensions ARE displaying in Chrome browser.eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Attached is image of customization scree that also shows toolbar area. No addons anywhere.

I know my Firefox (Win 10) blocks ads because I can see where they were supposed to be. Also, Youtube ads at the beginning of a video last only 1 or 2 seconds. But I've forgotten how I achieved that. I can find no evidence of an ad blocker on my computer or my Firefox browser. How can I find out how ads are blocked?

There is an application which is launched by a script in Firefox. Basically it launches a print job. Unfortunately the application can't launch since Firefox says "User Gesture is Required". We temporarily added a button for a user gesture to be recorded but ultimately we don't want this button here. Is there any setting where we can bypass this "User Gesture is Required" check?

I have been using Firefox for years. Recently my browser developed a glitch. I uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it. That part went fine. I find the newer version very user unfriendly. There is no home page button and I cannot figure out how to add one. Your bookmarks are awful. It tries to be intuitive but in the end all it does is takes 3 to 4 steps to do something that used to bee done in one. This is not an improvement. I want a bookmark list not a not a most recent list. This is a major pain in the a.. . I do not want to stop using Firefox but this user unfriendliness is a major problem. Not quite sure what to do.

Hello, The controls in Settings to choose how Firefox updates have disappeared from Settings / General? The "Firefox Updates" section is supposed to appear there, based on:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-background-updates-firefox-windows https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-options-preferences-and-settings?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#search

This is on V109. I really need to be able to choose when an update goes in, Python / Jupyter applications I have running on Firefox can cost me hours of time to re-run if Firefox goes in and restarts itself when it wants to. I used to be able to control this. Has it really been removed, or is somewhere else and the docs not updated yet? Thanks Neil

Moving mouse quickly and hit something, mouse clicked. BAM, fonts and picture to tiny size. Cannot find anything that makes that happen to undo it. All pages that site, no other site. Closing/opening Firefox stays the same. Zoomed to max and can now see, but page is not correct proportions.

I know I could use an addon like RunWith to download files to the Downloads folder without it asking where to save them, but I want files downloaded through Firefox the official way. I have “Always ask where to save files” unchecked in settings, but that doesn’t do anything.

Hello,

I have more than 30 extensions, but I cannot add an extension shortcut into my toolbar and no extension appears in the “Customize Firefox” view. I tried “Restore defaults” without any effects...

There is a way to fix this issue or run Firefox in verbose mode to more information why my extensions don't appear here? (Other than restart from a new fresh profile if it's possible…). I confirm that all the extensions are functional and activated. Thanks,

After ColorWays was disabled I installed the FireFox Color add-on to recreate the theme I had been using

Everything works fine except when I open the Library window or Add-on windows I get the 'Dark Theme' instead of the 'Light Theme'

After experimenting with different colors I found that the 'Toolbar Color' setting here https://color.firefox.com determines whether the Library is light or dark

It seems only the very lightest colors allow the light theme even though on ColorWays the intermediate themes allowed it and had exactly the same level of brightness as the custom one I created

Is the there any way to independently alter the Library color without having to the change the Toolbar theme I read this https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/theme#colors but it doesn't mention the Library

Thanks
