How can I completely remove the tab bar and regain 3/4 of an inch of screen space. It would be nice if Mozilla would just have a on/off button for it. I've tried creating a folder called Chrome within my Firefox Profile folder. I then created a text file within that folder and named it userChrome.css. I put this string in the text file #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } This did not work, does anyone know the best method for getting rid of the annoying tab bar?

Thank you

When I enter a search string for both yahoo or google (but not as yet duckduckgo) somewhere the string is "edited" before it is sent and all extended search characters deleted so "field1 field2" and "field1 -field2" return identical results. Some of the editing can be seen when the text is transferred from the search window to the address window. for example my try at ' "-"field2' was edited to '- field2' with a space between '-' and "field2". I am running Linux Mint and have done a Firefox update with no effect. Note that this not how it used to behave.

This issue has plagued me ever since I switched for Firefox. I have NEVER encountered this issue with any other browser. Once every week or two I will encounter a page with an MP3/MP4 file and will be presented with this error. I have already tried clearing cache, disabling addons, reloading, etc, but I guarantee the "best answer" will just be some rehashing of these steps. Something is fundamentally broken with this browser, and there are hundreds of people across various sites reporting it. Fix it.

Hello,

I tend to have a fair amount of windows and tabs open but this doesn't seem to have a noticed correlation. The symptoms are that FF will just go catatonic (spinning circle, Not Responding Header). When this happens the hard drive light is on solid. Eventually (10s of seconds to several minutes) FF will return to operation. Any idea of what is happening and how to fix this?

Reinstalled Firefox after a computer upgrade and now I'm stuck with a disconnected account and a sync loop. I login and it shows login confirmed but I look in the top right corner where you access your account and it shows that it's disconnected. On top of that, I backed up all of my tabs, favorites and passwords but I don't have the ability to import it from the back up. I'm only given the options to import from another browser. Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Firefox was working well on HTTP websites until a few days ago, but now HTTPS-Only Mode seems to be permanent. Despite changing settings to 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode', when HTTP sites are selected I get the same message as for 'HTTPS-Only Mode'. Also, if I select 'Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows' and add exceptions, I get the same result.

I like to keep my browser windows slightly smaller than my desktop. I usually leave about a half inch or so free on each side. This way, I still have easy access to any desktop shortcut that is alone the top/bottom, or left right of the screen, without having to minimize my browser windows completely to see the entire desktop. But for some reason, for the last several Firefox versions, it will always resize its height to take up the entire height of the desktop. The width stays the same, the way I want it. But the height is always from the top of the screen all the way down to the task bar. I don't know if it happens every single time I close out of Firefox and reopen, but I know my manual resizing never lasts long. what is happening here?

No matter what I do every time I close Firefox and reopen it all of the sites I am logged into log out.

I have reinstalled Firefox I have tried both beta and Enterprise versions. I have completely wiped all Firefox data from my appdata folders. I have refreshed Firefox multiple times. I have tried to mess with all the privacy, history, and cookies/cache settings and nothing has worked so far.

No matter what I have looked into the problem is not occuring the same for other people. It seems to be local to my PC however, as I am logged in perfectly fine on other Windows 11 PCs in my home.

The only major difference between the last time I used Firefox and now is that I reinstalled Windows11 to fix a bug with its calendar. I completely formatted so there cannot be any left over old Firefox files.

I had a personal certificate installed in Firefox and it was working well. It expired, so I got a new one from the same provider. Both appear in Firefox under "Privacy & Security" -> Certificates -> View Certificates... The previous one is not valid any more, and every time I try to access some page with a certificate, it uses the old one. So I tried to delete the old one. Nothing has worked so far. Doing the straightforward way of selecting it in the Certificate Manager and deleting it makes the certificate disappear from the manager menu, but if I enter the certificate manager again, it is there again. I tried to delete both certificates, same issue, both reaper in the manager. I tried to delete them, close firefox, delete cert9.db, cert8.db and key4.db and nothing. Only thing left is delete my current firefox profile and start again... Any other idea or something that I might delete before to solve this?

I use a public computer that resets itself every night. I want to login to my firefox account so I can receive all my settings, extensions, etc., when I login to sync.

However, when I login to sync, my default search provider remains as Google (the computer's default) and does not change to DuckDuckGo (the settings I previously had synced).

How do I set up sync so that when I login, it pulls all settings, etc., from the cloud, instead of keeping some that were configured locally?

When using the Export Logins feature to create a .csv file, the last few fields don't seem to translate into any known date-stamp format in Excel. The data seems to have relative chronological value, but I can't make sense of it in a spreadsheet.

Can a developer check this and modify the output of those fields so it's more compatible?

Example:

 Header             Cell data

I am using Arlo security cameras which store the video captures as MP4 files. The Arlo app has video playback feature that works in Chrome or Edge but does not work in FireFox. From what I have been abe to glean from searches, Arlo uses HEVC Codec that FireFox either isn't compatible with or is lacking the codec. Any suggestions?
