Hello !

So I have seen this question posted before but the author decided to just switch version, which is not exactly a future proof solution

So Firefox changed the way ctrl-tab works to display the last tab used, and while I don't think this is a bad idea, I'm just very used to quick switching by mashing ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab, and I don't really want to try and remember the exact order I used my many tabs to navigate between them.

Isn't there somewhere where I could toggle this ?

Thanks !

When trying to access 2 links, that I work with on a daily basis and have done so for the last 2 years, facing the SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP error and not able to access the pages because of Secure Connection Failure.

Have had this issue in the past, but was able to bypass it by clicking on 'Advanced' button in order to add Exception.

Problem is that since 2 days ago, error started coming up but 'Advanced' button is no longer appearing as an option. So, not able to bypass it in order to connect with the pages.

Thx for the help!

I get this error message on the same website every day. I click stop it, and the message disappears for 30 seconds then reappears over and over again. The message does not say this webpage; it says a webpage. Unchecking "always block all detected trackers" does not help.

Hi. I just noticed that my browser had auto-updated itself to version 63.0, and now, videos on Youtube and news sites auto-play, even though I have it disabled in About:Config. Until today, all html5 videos were being blocked just fine by that setting. Why is this happening and what can I do to re-block videos from auto-playing?

FF recently updated and when it restarted my browser window is now not showing my menu toolbar or bookmarks toolbar even though they are checked to be on. Plus the minimize/maximize buttons are overlapping my tabs at the top. It seems I'm in some different sized view or something that I cannot figure out how to get out of. I am not in "full screen" view (already tried F11 to be sure). And I've tried dragging the sides out but that doesn't fix the top min/max button issue where it overlaps and my toolbars AND my MENU bar still do not show up. I've gone into customize and removed and then re-added the "bookmarks menu" but it only shows up next to the other icons, not in the normal "toolbar" format with my folders, etc. I can view my bookmark toolbar in the SIDEBARS but again it's just the top of my screen that's messed up and I know it has something to do with my min/maximize buttons being overlapped with tabs but can't get out of it.

I've put a screenshot below to show you what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After completing an update to firefox 63.0, my previous extensive list of bookmarks in "bookmarks menu" and "bookmarks toolbar" and "bookmarks other" are no longer there AND they are not in the backup bookmarks folder.

How do I recover them? I have already been through numerous solutions suggested in the forum without success. Will going back to a previous version of firefox restore them? Creating an earlier restore point hasn't helped.

I really need these bookmarks.

Thank you.

I have been unable to get the tabs back where they should be, I'm afraid I am not tech-savvy enough to understand the userchrome-css solutions that some people have used. Can no-one produce an easy to use addon or something that will do this..? I love Firefox but forcing me to have the tabs on top is making me seriously think about ditching it.

So there was an issue where my browser stopped automatically restoring my previous session after closing it. I followed some instructions I found online that told me to tick the option for it under Options -> General -> Startup, and this fixed the problem. However, this seemed to have caused my browser to directly close and stop asking me to save and quit even while browser.ShowQuitWarning is set to true in about:config.

If I tick off the option to automatically restore my previous session, however, I do get a warning that tells me I'm about to close my browser, but it only gives me the options to close tabs and cancel closing my browser; the option to save & quit is absent entirely.

That's about everything I know that could be related to this issue.

Everything worked fine until yesterday. At first it was tabs crashing but that quickly turned into Firefox crashing. I haven't installed anything, haven't done anything that would cause it as far as I know.

At first it was 2-4 minutes the tab would crash. Then it turned into Firefox crashing every minute or two. Now it crashes within a few seconds of startup.

Here's what I've done to try to resolve it. I've updated flash player, graphic drivers. I've disabled add-ons, started Firefox in safe mode, tried clean install, tried different version of Firefox. It's crashing constantly.

What else is there to do?

Firefox version: 63. (I've tried 64 and results are same). OS: Windows 10 64 bit.

This is extremely annoying.

My site uses a template engine to wrap standard page HTML around templates that contain only the body text. However utf-8 multibyte characters are displayed correctly if there is no HTML header but incorrectly if the standard page header, which explicitly specifies utf-8 encoding, is presented to Firefox.

https://www.jamescobban.net/templates/Articles/FrenchOccupations.html is the template of the body text https://www.jamescobban.net/displayPage.php?template=Articles/FrenchOccupations has the HTML header and footer wrapped around it. You can look at it yourself, but to save time the header added by displayPage is:

   
   
      
        <title>
	    ...text extracted by DisplayPage from the h1 tag...
        </title>

The newest Firefox update (63.0.3 64bit) changed the way we switch tabs. usually it was CTRL + TAB to get to the next tab and CTRL + SHIFT + TAB to get to the previous tab.

Now it switches to the last tab which was opened (similiar to some IDEs). Also multiple switches between tabs shows a preview of the tab first instead of just switching.

Is there a way, maybe some about:config change, to get the old behaviour back?
