I do not like this wide address bar and need to go back to classic look. I tried some links on this support but it does not help. I would also like to to have to reset my preferences after each update. My version is 83.0 on Windows 7.

When I used CONTROL + SHIFT + B it opens the bookmarks window, when the documentation says it should toggle the visibility of the bookmarks boolbar. I'm on 83.0 64-bit on Win10. I've also got FF Dev Edn (84.0b8 64-bit) and this shortcut works fine. I've tried refreshing Firefox profile/settings from the Help/Troubleshooting menu. Anything else I can try to get this working?

In on a handful of websites and a primary issue on a specific site. The Lockwise auto-fill drop down menu will attempt to display a list of usernames it assumes are associated with that site. I have asked Firefox to never-save the login information for this site in hopes that this auto fill drop down menu will stop**. It has not, and the issue being it displays a list of usernames for locations I don't want publicly known. I have already shut off the auto fill login function in Firefox too.

The end point is this. I want help to find a way to stop the drop-down menu from showing when I select the Username box on a log-in page or tell Lockwise to stop associating the unwanted usernames from that website

    • Firefox did respect my request to not save that website's login information.

When I opened Firefox this morning, I got a pop-up I've never seen before, that said something like "Firefox is slow. Refresh Firefox." So I did that. Then I added back the add-ons I want to use. The add-ons are installed and working. But there are no icons in the toolbar. There is no overflow arrow. Just a blank space where the icons used to be. I've searched for solutions for two hours now. Can't figure it out.

Reverting Search Panel behavior in URL/Address Bar

With Firefox 83, the following change occurred:

  • Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel [in the address bar] now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I don't find this very useful since I have disabled search suggestions and would much rather have the old behavior of immediately performing a search when clicking the icon of my designed engine or site. My question is how do I disable the new change, and how do I re-enable the immediate search as default behavior so as to not have to shift-click for this?

Thank you.

Hi, I have FF 85, there is some setting that doesn't allow a new tab to open, without me having to give permission each time (another step and a time waster). Everything I have found, tells me to go to general settings and then go to "advanced" at the bottom of the general list and to change the setting there. There is no "advanced link to click, so I can't change this damn setting. This drives me crazy, as all help tells me to "go somewhere, that is not there". Help........why is it so difficult to change this simple setting, that was probably set incorrectly at some time in the past......... Help

Ironically, I have to use Google's Chromecast to log this question ...Because Firefox 1) Doesn't work, again, and 2) Mozilla offers zero ways to directly contact them

For the past several weeks, I constantly get error notifications: The "PR..." notice that indicated Search issues. I've read the information about it, resolve the issue for a day or two, and BOOM ...It's BACK! I do not have the time or wherewithal to continuously work to figure out and resolve poor browser coding issues. Today, I checked the "Set Defaults" option and it still doesn't work.

I'll check back in a couple weeks to see if an update has resolved the problem. Until then, I'll be 1) copying all my bookmarks (I still don't like their lousy Bookmark Mgmt process), and 2) using a different browser. Mozilla is wasting my time... They better hope I actually come back.

Users should not be expected to put up with BAD CODING for so long. At least not in the land of reality and multiple feasible browser choices.

When my Firefox restarted after a Windows reboot it only restored the tabs in one window, but when I shut it down I had 2 windows open. I can't see how to restore the second window, other than going through my history. Having restored 1 window, restore session is not in the drop down menu.

Hi all. For years I have used Firefox browser and utilised the little audio mute/unmute buttons that sit in each tab so I can mute/unmute sound coming from a web page without needing to open that particular window first. Since the last FF update I have found the button only appears when there is sound coming from that webpage. Is there anyway to force the mute/unmute button to be always avaialble?

When Picture-In-Picture mode first release, the size of the video was respective to the video's resolution, the window would increase in size the large the resolution and decrease the smaller. This allowed the window to be customizable in size. Now, for me at least, every picture-in-picture video is a tiny window. Is there a way to tweak and increase the size of the video like before?

So I'm loving containers. They're great. However, I wish for some of my add-ons to only be on some containers. For example, I don't mind the Honey or Amazon Shopping add-on in my Shopping Container. But I would prefer them not to be in my banking container. In reality I'd like my banking container to have almost no add-ons.

Is there a way to set add-on to container affinity?

I was hoping to re-order the extension icons in my menu bar but it seems like that can't be done (akin to how open tabs can just be re-ordered), so I figured the best thing to do was to remove them and re-populate the menu bar with them in the desired order.

So I didn't uninstall them, but removed them from the menu bar, thinking I could then just put them back in the order I'd like, but I'm not seeing any way to re-insert their icons/shortcuts into the menu bar. Even once they're completely uninstalled and re-installed, they no longer seem to go into the menu bar as per usual, as if they've been earmarked as not belonging there regardless of a whole new re-install.

In brief: Is there any way to get the icon/shortcut for installed extensions back into the menu bar once they've been removed from there?

Thanks for your time.
