M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

Since I opened Firefox today after the update to 74.0, Gmail won't load unless I am in private mode. YouTube is fine, as are the other Google apps. I have cleared the recent history and cache but that didn't work. Before I clear everything and start all over again, I wanted to see if anyone else had any suggestions for me. Thanks!!

There are times when I am traveling that I am out of range of any wi-fi and I have to use my data plan to access websites. Many websites have videos that play automatically. I have seen methods to block auto play. My question is, are these blocked from using my data or do they download to firefox but just don't get played? If the latter, is there some way to block the use of my data?

Does "Allow Cookies for Session" (under Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Permissions) mean that Firefox will only store websites cookies that are used to remember that we are signed in or does it mean that it will only remember cookies for a website until I close the browser? Does session mean: 1) The active session until I close the browser; 2) The session/fact that I'm logged in to a website?

I need to disable the Quick Find hotkey or change it to something else. I use the forward slash on the keypad as a divide symbol for an in-browser calculator for my online math homework. However, every time I hit forward slash, it brings up the Quick Find search bar, which means I have to stop and use my mouse to click the divide button on the calculator. This is quite frustrating and slows me down immensely when completing my homework.

When using passwords containing the dollar sign "$" Firefox won't autofill or login correctly

I'm encountering this problem: I have a few passwords which contain "$" and Lockwise refuses to save the entire password after the symbol (i.e.: "123456$abc" will be saved as "123456$"). Additionally, when I manually correct this by editing the password in Lockwise, then go back to the website to log in, autofill won't fill the password in automatically. After filling in the password and clicking "enter", Firefox asks if I want to save the updated password; when I unhide the password in this popup it has once again removed all characters following the $ (again the password appears as "123456$" instead of "123456$abc"). I'm stuck in a loop attempting to login to a few sites where this continually happens. Going to these sites in Chrome or Safari does not recreate the problem, so I assume it's not the actual websites but how Firefox handles "$" in passwords?

Does Firefox manage the priority of processes in Windows 10 ?

As Firefox often responds slow to my actions on my Compaq Presario CQ5303NL I have tried solving this by raising the priority of some of the 8 to 10 firefox.exe processes from Normal to High (with 3 Firefox windows and about 20 tabs open). This is done with the Task Manager. However the last month every 10 to 20 minutes the priority settings are reversed and about four firefox.exe processes are then set to Low priority at regular time intervals. This also seems to result in slow response to mouseclicks. Are you aware of this phenomenon? Is this something Firefox does by itself, or is this intervention coming from Windows 10. I notice that when I put explorer.exe in high priority, this lasts till shutdown of the computer, as with other manageble processes.

This is not a serious problem. It's more questioning what Windows is doing with Firefox. (memory is 6GB)

Why can't I log into my old firefox account from 2013? My account was considered a "Theme Artist" and I only ever uploaded one theme. But it says the email doesn't exist when I try to recover the password through the email. Yes it is 100% the correct email, I've only EVER had two emails, I'm certain it was this one and I even have old emails from mozilla themselves talking about my account. As you can see in the screenshot though it says it's from "nobody@mozilla", but it definitely wasn't a phishing email so a lot internally has probably changed within mozilla since 2015. But, how do I talk to an actual developer to recover my account as obviously you guys wouldn't be able to help with this. I know it was a long time ago and a lot has probably changed internally with mozilla but I would like access to my account back.

Oh, and yes my artwork Theme is still uploaded to the addons website: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/7768082/

Hope someone can help.

I am using a video conferencing site called "whereby.com". It works as expected for everything but screen sharing.

When attempting to share my screen, Firefox asks me if I'd like to allow "whereby.com" to see my screen (see attached screenshot). When clicking "Allow", I see the message in the second attached screenshot.

Firefox version - 73.0.1 Mac OS version - 10.15.3

The same error message appears regardless which of the options I select in the window where Firefox asks which window or screen to share.

Whereby doesn't have any info on this, and no search I've run has turned up anything that might give more info on the cause of, or possible solution to, the error saying screensharing could not start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if there's anything more I need to share to help troubleshoot this.

Thanks, Dan
