On desktop, whenever I left-click on a link to a Facebook or Instagram page, the page opens in the same tab, but the top-left back button is grey (unavailable) as if I had opened a new tab. I noticed this problem maybe two weeks ago, it only happens in Firefox, and only with links to Facebook or Instagram.

I thought I posted this problem some months ago for Firefox Support and didn't get any help so I will try again. My computers are running Windows 10 (1809) and using the latest version of Firefox (66.0.3 64-bit) .

I set up Firefox and went through all of the steps and Firefox will NOT sync to another computer! I would like to get this fixed soon and don't want to waste time doing unnecessary steps. This is why phone Support should be available.

How can this be resolved soon?

Thanks

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.

When I click on "download", the popup window with "Save File" and "Cancel" buttons does not appear . If I disable all add-ins and plug-ins (there are only three of them) and then restart Firefox, it does not fix the problem. However, if I open Firefox in Safe Mode, it works fine. I have an old profile which uses the same add-ins and it works fine. I have FF 66.0.5. I'm not sure if the problem was created by an update.

I have just downloaded Firefox for the first time, as Internet Explorer support has ended and some web sites activly make their pages not work properly, plus I hate Edge. All is good so far, except I am constantly closing a Firefox Privacy Notice tab. This appears to pop up when I select my home page (set to google.co.uk).

The main "Firefox" menu is in Japanese, but all the rest of the menus (File, Edit, View, History, etc.) are in English.

How can I change the "Firefox" menu's language back to English? I've already tried it in settings.

I am unable to attach screenshots for an unknown reason so will instead link them here:

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?

I've tried a few things:

- I deleted the folder "sessionstore-backups" in my profile folder and restarted Firefox. - Refreshing Firefox didn't solve the problem. - Disabling most extensions didn't help either.

Has anyone a clue?

It's really annoying and I can't get rid of it.

I've got this issue on my laptop as well. Laptop and PC! They're both connected via the Firefox Sync option.

Thank you for any help!

Best, DD

Hey, I know this question has been tackled in the past, but I tried following previous guides and none of the code listed in those guides worked with the latest version of firefox (66). I'm a mac user (you guessed it lol) and I wanted to put the "close tab" x button on the left of the tab, and not the right, so that its consistent with the rest of Mac OS.

Does anyone know how to do that, or is there an extension which does this?

Thanks!
