I delete Default Browser and all other search engines except Google. I then get Google search results for a bit but then later on I start getting a Yahoo panel at top of browser page. Go into Preferences and it shows under Search Engines a Browser Default. Can't get Firefox to stop going back to Browser Default which seems to be Yahoo. Any help appreciated. Thank you

FF 72.0.1 for Windows. See if I can explain this problem. I migrated Chrome bookmarks to a new profile on my desktop. I cleaned up the migration bookmarks and saved to an html file for a backup. I also created a new profile on my laptop that I did attempt to sync with the desktop which was when I first noticed issues with the synced bookmarks/folders.

RIght now I have sync turned off on both machines and am concentrating only on the desktop. I deleted all the bookmarkbackups directory files and deleted places.sqlite and imported the saved html file to get the desktop where I want it. However, when I turn sync on (with sync turned off on the laptop) it adds folders and bookmarks, some of which were NOT there in the Chrome migration and some duplicates that I had created on the laptop. Deleting the WEAVE directory makes no difference. I don't know where this information is coming from, whether cache or ff backups, but I want to have a clean set of bookmarks, that I can sync to a clean laptop.

Can someone please tell me where this previously synced (some not) information is coming from so I can delete and start from scratch.

No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

My BMP files open from my Atlassian site in Chrome and IE but *NOT* in Firefox...it used to work but some version broke it. The "Properties" in Atlassian says "New Content Type=image/bmp" when you import a BMP file which works in Chrome and IE but I get a window with <The image "blah blah blah" cannot be displayed because it contains errors> in Firfox 72.0.1 under Windows 10 (and Windows 7). If I MANUALLY CHANGE every file to "New Content Type=bmp" then they will open in Firefox. Please FIX this..."image/bmp" and "bmp" are the SAME THING!

Attached is a sample file...no wait this will *NOT* let me attach a BMP file (apparently you just hate that filetype)!

The last two days, when browsing Twitter on my desktop computer, it's automatically switched the format to the mobile version - which is harder to navigate - from the standard desktop version of Twitter. I can't figure out why it's doing this. It's doing this in Chrome, too. However, in Internet Explorer, it's properly rendering the desktop version of Twitter.

Is this happening to anyone else? Is there a way for Firefox to load the desktop version of Twitter as a default?

After Firefox updated, I can no longer access www.apple.com. This is the error I get now:

Blocked by X-Frame-Options Policy

An error occurred during a connection to idmsa.apple.com.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this context because the page has an X-Frame-Options policy that disallows it.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank You.

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

As of a few days ago, the Firefox taskbar Icon has not remained independent of multiple browser windows open on multiple screens, when this has never been a problem prior. I have to right click on a window to open a new one or have all of them not in the main screen, and I don't want to do that because it is not how it is supposed to work. What has happened? I permanently have multiple browser windows open with specific sites i check every single morning when the PC gets turned on so I don't have to search for anything. What is going on peoples?

I've tried the solutions recommended in other threads, which have now been closed, removed the @namespace, tabs still on top.

Edited: I realized all the garbage in the address bar was back, so I moved the tabs on bottom code to its own file, then used the userChrome.css to make the tweaks for the address bar. Those aren't working either.

This is the code in my tabs_on_bottom.css file.

/* TABS: on bottom */

  1. navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {-moz-box-ordinal-group:10}
  2. TabsToolbar {-moz-box-ordinal-group:1000!important}
  1. TabsToolbar {
position: absolute !important; 
bottom: 0 !important;
width: 100vw !important;
display: block !important;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs {
 top: 300 !important;
 width: 100vw !important;

}

  1. main-window:not([chromehidden*="toolbar"]) #navigator-toolbox {

padding-bottom: calc(1px + var(--tab-min-height_tnot)) !important; }

/* TABS: height */

root {
--tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important;
--tab-min-height: 33px !important; /* adjust to suit your needs */
--tab-min-height_tnot: 32px;

}

root #tabbrowser-tabs {
--tab-min-height: 33px !important; /* needs to be the same as above under :root */
--tab-min-width: 80px !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar {

height: var(--tab-min-height) !important; margin-bottom: 1px !important; box-shadow: ThreeDShadow 0 -1px inset, -moz-dialog 0 1px !important; background-color: var(--toolbar-bgcolor) !important; } /* hide windows-controls */

  1. TabsToolbar #window-controls {display:none!important;}

/* move caption buttons to right of Tab bar */

  1. main-window[tabsintitlebar]:not([inFullscreen="true"]) #toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"] ~ #TabsToolbar .titlebar-buttonbox-container {

position: fixed !important; right: 0 !important; top: calc(6px + var(--tab-min-height)) !important; display: block !important; visibility: visible !important; }

  1. toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"] ~ #TabsToolbar {padding-right: 100px !important;}

Whether I import this file or put the code in the userChrome.css file, it makes no difference. I'm running FF 72.0.2.

I used to not have issues with Firefox but in recent weeks Firefox has crashed so much that it's becoming increasingly unusable for me - I've had 63 crashes in the last 24 hours, including 6 in the process of writing this post. The crashes do not seem to be caused by any specific website or action, and they still occur in safe mode. It is becoming increasingly rare for Firefox to last more than a few minutes without crashing. Any information that would alleviate me of this problem would be greatly appreciated. Some error reports are listed below:

Hello! My Firefox tabs crash constantly since I got a new computer. I have tried all the suggestions I can find in the forums. I did try downloading Firefox for enterprise but I could not figure out how to get it up and running, it seemingly installed, but Firefox seems to be the same. My new (to me) computer is a MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 if that has anything to do with it. I have Parallels installed on my computer for the first time, if that might have anything to do with it. I have not had the problem with Firefox crashing within the Virtual Machine, though. Here is the latest submitted crash report: bp-f70bd533-3d22-4cd6-9f39-498920200121 Thank you for any insights and help!
