I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable. Firefox works fine on my PC but I also have a new Mac and on that machine the scrollbar is totally unusable on all sites, even with a stylus. I saw a couple posts about creating some custom code for this but I'm not a developer. This can't be only my problem? How do I just make it wider?

This is an issue with Mozilla Support. I'd like to be able to mark an answer as obsolete, as it's potentially misleading.

If you search on Google for "firefox toggle bookmark bar", the first result is this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/865261

It indicates that there's no shortcut to toggle the bookmark bar, which was probably true when it was written, but isn't true now (can use Ctrl+Shift+B). As the question thread is archived, there's no way to add additional responses to indicate the current Firefox functionality, and users that search for this information may get the impression that the older answer is still accurate.

I don't mean to single this example out, I'm sure there are others and the author of the answer did nothing wrong, but I would like there to be some way to help direct users to more up-to-date information.

Hi all,

Today I ran into a Page Fault BSOD that resulted in me having to perform a system rollback, after doing this, audio on FireFox specifically does not work, I have so far done a FireFox refresh and an uninstall -> Reinstall to no avail, audio is not muted, drivers are up to date, and for all intents and purposes, audio should be working.

Running Windows 10 and FireFox ver 92.0

Can anyone help me? I have no idea what the hell is causing this and I'm completely out of options at this stage given that I've tried everything humanly possible.

I cannot like or dislike comments on the fox news website like I used to. Not only that, it's as if I've never accessed that website before. Everytime I restart the browser I need to re-login to the windsor star website. This never happened before I can give details on how to replicate this problem. Otherwise I will drop this browser, bcause I can't get any help. Already tried all troubleshooting steps. I also disabled my internet security. I need help!! Please. None of my settings have been changed, all I did was update FF.

David, there was new login to your account

xxxxx@gmail.com

Firefox 91.0 on Win10 Sep 15 at 9:40 AM (America/New_York) United States If you don't recognize this activity, review your recently used devices

This has resulted in big arguments with AV support and others who keep sending me Windows installers, for example. I finally learned just to use Safari, but this is bewildering and I haven't found an explanation or solution anywhere.

I just reinstalled Firefox. There was a "search with amazon.ca" at the bottom of the options when I clicked on the search toolbar. (This was not a suggested search engine on the bottom row, with the other search engines -- it was popping up with the list of websites I visit.)

I deleted Amazon.ca from the list of suggested search engines and now instead of "search with Amazon.ca" it simply shows "Amazon.ca Low prices fast shipping" in its place and I can't seem to get rid of this. And I want this gone for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it takes me to Amazon.com where I don't even have an account.

How can I define the Google (gmail.com) account that opens when I enter "gmail.com" in the search bar? The "donaldwilliams@gisthailand.org" is defunct; I cannot delete it. Yet Firefox defaults to that account.

How to change the default account?

This does not occur in Safari.

Greetings. I have scoured the web and read all the community posts on this robot head, under remote control, and orange stripes in the address bar problem that so many people seem to be having. There are a few answers, but almost all of them use very technical terms that are way above my head and not defined. None of them provide a sequence of steps to fix the problem that a browser novice might be able to follow. Surely there must be a way to fix this or to explain to frustrated users why it is there and not removable. None of my other Firefox browsers have this on other machines.

Is there a series of steps to solve the problem? That would be so helpful especially without undefined terms. Thanks so much. This type of answer will help so many frustrated users (me included of course) :)
