Even when I'm in Full Screen mode on my Mac, Firefox insists on putting a tab bar at the top of the page; how do I hide that tab bar? I've searched all over the settings and Internet to find an answer, but no luck in finding the answer.

The main idea of "Full Screen Mode" is to maximize the usable display area of the browser window. When I'm using Full Screen Mode, I am intentionally using just one URL. If I need a new window, then I'll get another Full Screen Firefox window (not a tab). This is an incredible waste of screen real estate, to have a single tab consuming an entire row... so irritating!

Firefox didn't used to do this; can you tell which older version that I can use that doesn't have this behavior?

Thanks...

Unable to login to Medicare account - Medicare Plan Finder

Keep getting: "We can't process your request at this time."

https://www.medicare.gov/plan-compare/#/?year=2023&lang=en

Have been getting this error message for many days now, even in troubleshooting mode with all extensions disabled.

Bug?

However can login to my Medicare account directly with Brave browser without any issue. Seems to suggest some fundamental problem/incompatibility with Firefox (102.4esr)

Note, have tried everything that would appear to apply from this reply to same question : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1393619

+ would think that starting in troubleshooting mode with all extensions disabled suggests some fundamental incompatibility/bug.

Please assist with daily 5x screen out blackout crashes

It appears some source ---Google chrome---- is remotely crashing the site

restoration usually requires restoring wired power. plug cable back into wall socket

Maybe you can confirm my assessment, should I proceed with Google security features, remove my cell listed as a 2 factor notification tool

Google notification to my cell phone asks. Your device is in use, is it you. press this key. sometimes the browser is immediately restored. Frequently there is a delay. All laptop operations are now routinely interrupted by screen blackouts when power is 80-100%

I have been using firefox for years. I went to medicare.gov this weekend and was unable to login. I have never had a problem using firefox to login to Medicare.gov. I called medicare and they only told me to clear history and cookies which I did OR use another browser. I am using a Mac and used Safari, but had to turn on Java script to login. I have turned off all addons. Looked at settings, but can not find why I can not use firefox to login to Medicare.gov

Suggestions!!!!!

I don't know the correct name for my problem. I have been trying to display an email collection form (newsletter sign-up) from Mailerlite at my website, virginiasanderson.com, on Wordpress. The form displays on my Android/Samsung phone and on Chrome, but will not display on Firefox. I spent considerable time struggling, with help from Mailerlite, before I realized the problem was Firefox. I have tried turning off Enhanced Protection. The form is an embedded form, not a pop-up, but I also allowed pop-ups for the site. I must have some other setting that is preventing these forms from working on Firefox. I much prefer Firefox to other options, but this may be a deal-breaker when it comes to continuing to build my site. Please help.

Although I can access every other aspect of my school account, I am locked out of email by a screen telling me: "Your login request has expired. Try logging back into the application" with the accompanying tab reading: "Universal Prompt Error".

Regardless of my logging out and trying again, and rebooting my computer, contacting the school's IT dept, I continue to be locked out through Firefox. Chrome will let me in.

Please help me resolve this problem.

I frequent Creative Fabrica a lot, I have had a subscription there for well over a year and never had any problem downloading anything, never had so much as a warning about the website. This website is larger than Creative Market. I purchased the ability to download in a subscription there, my payments are all made on time.

Even then, I am trying to download free "daily gifts" (fonts & graphics), and this is the first time I have tried on my iMac, but FireFox does nothing, and I cannot download the .zip archive, even though I can download the image files.

I have been downloading from elsewhere across the internet just fine. I usually use FireFox because I like it better than Safari (and a lot more than Chrome or Chrome Edge), until this issue.

So, what's the deal?

I heard about restarting in safe mode, but have no idea how, I always have such an issue getting FireFox to restart for updates, already (and why doesn't it offer the button to do just that?).
