Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

Hi,

I use firefox on both a work and home computer, as well as my phone (iOS). I have sync active on all three devices, yet the synced tabs only ever shows one device's tabs. On both computers, the iOS tabs are all that displays in synced tabs, and on iOS, only one of the two computer's tabs are shown, and often with the wrong name - I haven't found out what determines which computer's tabs shows in the synced tabs menu or which name is used, but it definitely isn't which computer was used more recently, for either requirement.

Frequently when I update Firefox something stops working the way I want it to. So after the last update I disabled updates. That was a while ago (version 89) and my browser was getting pretty stale. So I backed everything up, reenabled updates, and now I have version 104.

And, of course, something is broken now. The context menus when I right click are not functioning as before. The userChrome.css is still there in the chrome folder in my profile and has the same contents. The option toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is set to true. But it doesn't work anymore. I added a line to change the color of the tab toolbar and that worked. So userChrome.css is being read and acted upon. But the other command (I whittled it down to just one additional command for testing) is ignored.

Here is what my userChrome.css looks like right now:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

  1. context-openlinkintab { display:none!important; }
  2. TabsToolbar{ background-color: #CCCCCC !important }

But the "Open Link in New Tab" still appears in the context menu when I right click a link. It didn't do this before the upgrade to 104. Did something break in between version 89 and 104 or is it some other oddity?

Any ideas?

Thanks Mozilla for great browser. I ONLY use Firefox nothing else.

The question in the subject field was posted 7 years ago. I am still having this problem in version 104.0.1 (2022) on Mac. First I updated youtube tab with cmd+shift+R still same problem. Then I deleted cache with cmd+shift+backspace still same problem. I had to delete all my history in FIrefox before video was playing. Am I doing something wrong or need something being fixed :-)

Today I stumbled on an issue that seems to have affected a number of users who care about profiles. The issue is articulated well here. It appears that a clean installation of Firefox results in the creation of two profiles, one called "default-release" and another "default" where "default-release" is the default. Ugh.

Can any user safely delete the "default" profile and rename the "default-release" profile to "default" to restore a simple, uncomplicated configuration? Why wouldn't Firefox do this by default?

I understand from question 1264072 that Firefox did this intentionally to support multiple installs and release channels, but why shouldn't the "default" profile be used by default? Surely a user who is not performing multiple installs or dealing with multiple release channels shouldn't have their profile names polluted by unaffected concerns.

Why i am suddenly getting Google log-in requests when I first open some websites in my Firefox browser on Mac OS Monterey? This was not happening before; it has started in the past couple of weeks and is extremely annoying. I do everything possible to stop providing Google with any information about me. One of the ways I thought I was doing that was by using the Firefox browser. But apparently not, since Google is able to infiltrate the browser and ask for a sign-in. It is not possible that Google is doing this without Firefox/Mozilla awareness of it.

I have tried disabling add-ons/ exensions, disabling auto-fill, downgrading security, reinstalling (even the ESR edition), deleting Firefox files from the library/application_support - but it doesn't simply work. Not sure if this is an OS issue.

Any ideas would really help. Getting the below info on the about:crashes each time:

My extensions take up a lot of space in my toolbar and I'd love to hide all of them. However - every 'solution' to the problem tells me to right click the extension straight from the toolbar and click 'Hide from Toolbar'.

I do remember this option existing, however I couldn't find it since last update and I'm assuming it was removed. Is there any way to use it again?

^ (Small note, It would also be lovely if I could add them to the Extensions add-on in the toolbar, as that would really be a better use for it other than overflow)

I've noticed on a few websites that when I click on "login with Facebook" to log into the website in question, nothing happens. I have turned Enhanced Tracking Protection to "off," and I've cleared cookies on the site. I am using Firefox version 90.0.2

Someone else had this question a three years ago, but that was archived and the protection interface for this version of Firefox has changed, so I appreciate help anyone may be able to offer.

Dear Firefox Community

I’m a Mac user. I’ve been a happy Firefox user for about eight years or more, with few problems. The only main one has been the refusal of Firefox to update automatically, even though I’ve ticked the box in preferences for this to happen so I always have to update by restarting Firefox manually and downloading it again.

I’m currently using Firefox 78.8.0esr. It needs updating, and I’ve tried about six or seven times over the last 6 weeks (most recently to Firefox 90.0.2dmg). Every time I do this, however, Firefox loses memory of me - and all my bookmarks (you’ll understand that after eight years there are a few hundred of these) disappear. I’ve copied them in in various ways (most recently by importing my Firefox bookmarks from 78.8.0 into Safari and then into Firefox 90 - and it works for about 12 hours or so, but then on the second or third time I open it reverts to the bookmarkless screen as if I’m a completely new user (with a really irritating picture of Soraya who is a Firefox fan and presumably is exempt the kind of problems I’m having).

Can you explain what is happening please, and how I can overcome this?

Thanks,

Steve Charters

I was having problems with my home page on Firefox (Google) switching over to Yahoo. Mac support helped me get rid of it--it was malware. But now a tiny red and white button has appeared at the top of my browser. It's a Yahoo file converter. I didn't ask for it and I fear it's malware. How can I get rid of it?
