When I click on Bookmarks on the toolbar, the window with my bookmarks opens normally, but the issue is the size of that windows. It's way to wide and actually wider than the Firefox window itself. Adjusting other windows is easy, but I have no idea how to reduce the size of this one. See the image attached.

Hello! I'm running the current version of Firefox, and my MacOS is also up to date: 14.2. I'm building a website in Squarespace. On that website, I have a PDF link that, when clicked, will open in a new browser window, with an option to download. I've set that up in SQSP settings, but clicking the link only allows a download. Squarespace Support and myself were able to open the PDF in a new window in Chrome and Safari. Is there a setting in Firefox or something else that I'm missing that will allow opening the PDF in a new browser window? Thanks! Michael

- Marquis has colonised my search page. - I used to be able to get rid of it temporarily by going into troubleshoot mode and going through that whole process twice - oddly, it never worked first time. - Now that doesn't work. - I can only get to my DuckDuckGo homepage via my bookmarks, which means I can't have more than one page open at a time. Firefox opens by default in Marquis. - I downloaded paid-for antivirus software with no results, so I'm reluctant to get anything else unless I'm sure it will work. - I notice that several people on this thread and elsewhere have reported this intrusion. - Does anyone know what to do about it??

I recently got a new Mac, running Ventura. When I did I lost the second toolbar that used to be in Firefox, the one that shows frequently used programs, like Google, Apple etc. Instructions say to click on Firefox and select Preferences, but there is no Preference under Firefox. I tried looking under Tools and got no where. What do I need to do?

Since my upgrade in Firefox my home page when I open it fills only half the screen. I can enlarge it but that's a pain in the rear. Every time I go out of Firefox and then return to the home page it is half the width of the computer screen. How do I get to make the full screen my default? Thanks Richard

Hello

If I put a video into full screen mode there is space left at the top of my screen where the desktop menu bar would normally go. I've looked everywhere for solutions but can't find anything that works.

Attached is a screengrab of what I mean, the black space being a video trying to play full screen.

Cheers for any help

So I installed the Window Titler add on. First the Firefox main general toolbar menu didn't work, which was fixed by closing down every window and Firefox and re-launching.

Now though when I use Yahoo in Firefox, I can't reply, forward or select ANY of the buttons to action an email. Other buttons work. But if I launch Yahoo in Safari they work.

Problem happened exactly as I installed the add-on. Any ideas what's going on?

Can't select Firefox's top Menu bar (File, Edit, View, History etc...) straight after installing add-on

I have just installed the Window Titler add-on for labelling Firefox windows.

As soon as I did and as soon as I completed the step in the customise page to add Titles to windows (tick bottom left box), I have lost the functionality to select any of the overall standard Firefox Menu options across the top: everything from Firefox to Help are visible as per normal, but I can only actually click on 'Firefox' to make it do anything. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Window and Help are all there still but are unclickable - nothing happens on any of them.

I can click the hamburger menu on a window toolbar and select menu options there. But the overall one is as above. How can I get it working?

I use Firefox for going onto AOL and keep getting the message below. Would appreciate talking with someone and even better, getting onto my MacBook Air and help me out. Talking is most helpful. Tim

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at www.effulgencefoundation.org. If you entered the right address, you can: Try again later Check your network connection Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

Hi all. Permit me to say thank you in advance to the people responding.

I am running a late 2010 MacBook Air, Firefox V 112 (64 bit), IOS 10.13.6. Search Engine is Duck Duck Go. Web pages have become very slow to load. Lower left hand part of the screen displays "waiting for Duck Duck Go, waiting for YouTube, etc." I have the same problem with a like vintage Lenovo V460 running Windows 10. It's not the router because my smartphone loads pages wicked fast and it uses my router for data. The phone is using Firefox Focus.

Changing the browser to Safari speeds loading. Changing the browser to Edge does the same for the Lenovo V460.

This problem began with both computers after Firefox recent updates, although I don't recall when it started. Suggestions? I have been a Firefox user since forever ago and I'd really like to keep using it.

Thanks again.

Allen.

I have Firebox as my default browser, both on my iMac and my PC laptop. Problem is, when I click on a photograph on line, it loads the image fit to the screen, instead of its original size! How can I change the setting on both my devices so this won't happen?! When I use Chrome, those images are all loaded in their original, large size, but not when I use Firefox! WHY?!!! I have tried the Firefox settings but can't find a solution! Thank you for your help.

I am running on a mini Mac, OS v, 12.6.2. I have activated the extension (add on) for EZY Photo, but don't know how to get access to edit photos. I've checked in my Mozilla Firefox preferences and the extension is activated. I have not set the extension to private. But don't see a EZY Photo tab on my home page nor do i see one when i open a program like Preview, Photo Booth, Photos, Google Photo. Any suggestions on what I am not doing right?

Hello there - I have the Ghostery free ad blocker installed, but this morning there was a problem and it is not working. When I try to go to the Ghostery hub, I get a message "File not found". I have restarted my computer, Mac iOS, 12.6 Monteray, quit and reopened Firefox several times, and the same message appears. I really like the ad blocker! What's going on and how can this be fixed?
