Hello, the menu bar has an error. Before the update, I could move all addons to the overhang menu (Überhangmenü). With the new update, an additional symbol is forcibly inserted, which I cannot remove. I would like to move the AddOns back to the overhang menu.

The AddON icons are now way too big and in general I want to remove the AddON icon. Can someone help?

I installed Mozilla VPN just over one year ago. I never could get it working right (my issue I'm sure) and simply forgot about it. Until I was billed for another year recently. I really do not need VPN at all because I always use secure methods when online such as Kaspersky protected browsing and PayPal and Zelle also. Please direct me to whomever is able to cancel my VPN account and possibly issue a refund. A phone number would be nice if a better explanation is necessary. Thank you for helping me, I look forward to hearing back.

Two weeks ago the my Firefox was updated and with that update the header and toolbar changed to colors which was really nice. At that time my 2nd computer was out for servicing and when I received back (yesterday) I tried to change the Firefox colors to match the other computer. I see that the colorway option was only available till January 16th. Now only the white background is available. Is there anyway I can still the colors on this computer. The white is so boring compared with the color. Same as black and white picture compared to color.

The Subject says it. I have this line "Your browser is being managed by your organization." in Config under Sync. I am a private user so there is no organization. I want to get rid of this.

I'm trying to troubleshoot why Google Chat will not sound an audible alert while Google Mail does. I can't find any settings that would affect this so naturally I suspect this organization line.

I'm using the Mozilla .deb and not the Ubuntu snap.

Thanks, John

I've been using the "L" key to jump ahead on YouTube, but as of this week pressing the key keeps opening the Firefox Search Bar instead. It's driving me nuts and I'm about ready to give up on FF.

I can find no way to change the shortcuts or stop it from taking over when I use shortcuts on various sites. Any suggestions?

Using Firefox 109.0 (64-bit) and my Extension Button's changed to an inconvenient location, cannot be moved, and no longer goes directly to about:addons. Instead just gives me a useless list of extensions I have. Not sure why it's suddenly become an annoying, useless button.

Due to the recent upgrade of the Firefox browser for windows, my add-on for Mailvelope did not sync and I have lost all my encryption settings. I do not have the original key and don't know how to recover the previous version. At this point I am locked out of important sites without my original encryption keys and the keys to those sources. I really need the November 2022 version of Mailvelope. Please help. Thank you.

Firefox applied an update and now there is a puzzle piece icon on my toolbar for extensions at the top right. I have tried to edit my toolbar but that icon can't be moved, removed, or hidden and it's where my bookmarks icon usually is which is messing with my work flow a lot. I work very fast and have years of muscle memory of clicking the first icon at the top right to open bookmarks and now I keep opening extensions.
