Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Between two Win10 Home PCs, both used to have all my Saved Logons, but somehow one PC has dropped them all. Both PCs do use Firefox Sync between successfully, but while that synchronizes Bookmarks (& whatever else), evidently NOT "Saved Logons". So, isn't there some way to EXPORT all of them to a file, to then IMPORT them to my other PC? Incidentally, within Saved Logons, there is a button named IMPORT, but it's used is only for importing from 3 other designated browsers, and apparently on the self-same PC. Searching Firefox Support was a waste of time ... their 'results' are just wide nets of hundreds of irrelevant things, no matter how precise I attempt each search. Bad support job on self-help, Mozilla.

For years I've used a userchrome script to show multiple rows of bookmarks, but it no longer works in Firefox 66!

Does anyone know what's gone wrong, or a way this can be fixed?

I cannot function without multi-row bookmarks! I have over 25,000 bookmarks, all neatly organized into folders across five rows of bookmarks. there's no way I could cram all those categories into one single, solitary row.

It's a shame that Firefox has never seriously supported the bookmark bar. It's always been buggy, ugly, cumbersome to use, and never felt very "solid". The menu also has a tendency to disappear, making it hard to organize and drag bookmarks and folders around.

I received some good suggestions about how to shut down without losing whatever was on the main window, when I didn't know another window had opened. Use Ctrl-Shft-Q.

But I so use X without thinking, that I have lost another load of tabs (that I reconstructed partially--they don't all show up in history unless every one has been opened in the last session, something I never, ever do) by using the wrong means to shut down FireFox.

Isn't this something FF should address? I can't be the only person losing 30+ tabs and unable to get them back bbc they weren't actually opened, but merely sitting on the Tab Row, so not in History.

This for me is gigantic. And reminding myself to use Ctrl-Shft-Q really is a lot to expect when every other program and app closes reliably with X.

Thanks.

Of all the updates and features that Firefox has added to its repertoire over the years, the one item I keep hoping for never seems to be present: The ability to simply print out a hard copy of my logins (username and password). Is that asking too much? Or is that feature present, and I'm just too dumb to find it?

After updating to Firefox 66.0 on MacOS 10.13.6 today, websockets on my localhost stopped working.

When using Create React App (version of "react-scripts": "2.1.8" => "webpack-dev-server": "3.1.14" => "sockjs": "0.3.19"), hot reload is broken and I get following error in the console:

`The connection to ws://localhost:3000/sockjs-node/743/khw0phgj/websocket was interrupted while the page was loading.`

When I tried https://www.websocket.org/echo.html, it works fine and no problems with hot reload in Chrome 72.0.

How can I debug and fix this problem please? (when I googled the error message, I got a lot of outdated advice from previous versions of Firefox)

Firefox is up to date. Windows 10 is up to date. Netflix video plays in all other browsers, IE 111, MS Edge, Chrome. It stopped playing in FF same time it stopped for the rest of the world about a year ago. I am tired of switching to another browser every time I go to Netflix. I have read other answers and they are all snippily saying that there is nothing wrong with FF but with settings in Windows 10. This doesn't fly because since Netflix video plays in ALL OTHER BROWSERS, this is a problem with FF not Windows 10. If FF would be so kind as to STOP being the bully in town ande conform to the same settings all other browsers use for playing Netflix video, this would be greatly appreciated. Meantime, instead of changing my Windows 10 settings to make FF happy over ALL OTHER BROWSERS, I will instead simply stop using , and convert solely to Chrome., If, in future, any of you scratch your heads and wonder why everyone fell away from FF remember these events. Goodbye.

I don't like MSExplorer or Bing. I've set Firefox Quantum 66.0.2 (64bit) as my default browser with search results from Google.

When I type a search in the 'Type here to search' window, MS Explorer opens with a Bing search result.

How do I get the thing to stop opening Explorer and simply open FF?

And again, Firefox is absolutely set as my default (menu/options/'smiley' Firefox is currently your default browser)
