After the last one or two updates, the text size in my bookmarks toolbar, my search bar, and the tabs have all from a size 10 or 12 down to a size 6 or 8. This makes them very hard to read. I have gone through all of the menus and can't find a way to change them back to normal - even a small increase would help. Right now the text is small enough to allow 13 bookmarks in the bar. I used to have seven. All bookmarks do work, but it's a matter of have to almost crawl into the screen to read them. I also tried the refresh with no help. I have the latest update, 49.0., using Win 10 with the newest updates.

I just updated to 49.0

When I typed "googlemail.com" into a tab and hit enter, then immediately switch to another tab to load something or browse something else - I waited for the "googlemail.com" tab to finish loading and then clicked back on it - the page showed a small spinning loading icon in the middle of the page before all the content appeared

Does this have any impact on page loading performance?

I checked the release notes and had a quick look through my FF settings and about:config but I couldn't find any way to disable this

McAfee detects FireFox-FBB as unwanted software on Windows 10. It has been held in quantine and deleted a few times but returns. Is this "unwanted" software risky and/or is it safe to use Firefox if the software continually returns?

I used to use Chrome, but I have switched to Firefox for a few years now. When I downloaded Firefox, I customized it without creating an account. As years passed, my Firefox now is highly customized and I don't want to lose everything. So I want it sync to an account, so when I get a new laptop, I can just log into that account. Also I want my Firefox app to be synced too. How do I link an account to my current, highly customized Firefox? I fear that if I just create an account now, I will have to start new.

A user replied just now mentioning that the remember logins for sites must be selected under the Firefox options settings. I see the box there to select, but, that box won't accept my check mark. In other words, perhaps, temporarily it is not available, or some glitch there perhaps? Maybe somebody can check that?

Firefox 49 introduced a new section to the Bookmarks Menu -- both the one that drops from the toolbar button and the one on the classic menu bar. It says Recently Bookmarked and is followed by the five most recently added bookmarks. How to remove it?

(Yes, it's a little obnoxious to create a new question to answer it, but I think it's the best way to help spread this information to anyone searching for it.)

When I go to Photobucket my browser gets redirected to a scam. It redirects when viewing the tab and not viewing the tab. It happens without any mouse movement.

This only happens when I go to Photobucket. It does not matter what Photobucket page it is.

I have tried Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro and Zemana AntiMalware and it still is redirecting. Farbar Recovery Scan Tool shows the computer looks clean.

This does happen using Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. I have not tested to see if it happens using Internet Explorer browser.

Is this coming from the Photobucket website? Why is this just happening when I go to the Photobucket website only?

Any help appreciated,

Even though I have the mozilla maintenance service installed, I always check my version by going to help/about firefox, the last 3 updates it has said that it was up to date, but when I then go to check my plugins, up comes a page that says I am using an older version of firefox and a link to get the update.

==

Thinking there was a problem, I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, which meant I had to start at version 43 and work up, so got to version 48.02 and same thing happened, checked tools/about firefox, says up to date, go to plug in page check to see if plugins are up to date and was told that I was using an older version of firefox, so I clicked link to download version 49, downloaded and installed.

So am up to date right now,

mozilla maintenance service is set at automatic.

firefox is my default browser

OS: xpsp3

Any assistance will be appreciated. Thank You.

EDIT: changes made, were to disable pocket, hello and multistage rollout.

Streaking even occurred momentarily while navigating this site. I saw it most when using Tumblr Photos. The first or top page is OK then after scrolling down the streaking occurred after the first line of pixels of a photo or block of text. A following page may resolve but when scrolling back the streaking is still there mostly. It does not occur in Internet Explorer. The problem is even happening in the block of 'Troubleshooting Information' as I scroll through it. I have tried to upload a screen shot of the problem as a .png file but the little wheel is still turning after 40 minutes.

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

What does "Your connection is not secure" mean?

When Firefox connects to a secure website (the URL begins with "https://"), it must verify that the certificate presented by the website is valid and that the encryption is strong enough to adequately protect your privacy. If the certificate cannot be validated or if the encryption is not strong enough, Firefox will stop the connection to the website and instead show an error page:

Fx44 Insecure Connection

   To troubleshoot secure connection problems with the error message Secure Connection Failed, see the Troubleshoot the "Secure Connection Failed" error message article.
