The icon for private browsing has recently re-appeared on my taskbar despite having browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled set to false in about:config.

I've had this setting configured ever since the update which completely changed the appearance/behavior or private browsing and it has worked correctly up until today (14/06/24).

Is there a new setting that I have to adjust in order to "merge" the windows together as I'm not a fan of having the private browsing icon on my taskbar.

Suddenly almost everytime I load a YouTube video I have to watch 2 - 4 min of ads, sometimes two in a row before the video starts. I no longer have the skip ad button. If I load the same link in Chrome or Edge I don't have this problem. My search engine is Duck Duck Go, but if I go to Google first and then to the video I still have the problem. I also have the Maleware Bytes ad blocker installed. Any suggestions?

I have an add-on ad blocker for youtube and have never gotten ads. This afternoon that stopped. I get ads with every video I click and there is no 'skip ad' on the screen. I added another top rated youtube add blocker, quit firefox and then opened it again. Before, if I clicked a video it started an ad and I could go back and then hit the video again, but now that doesn't work, but if I select to show the video in a new tab, there are no ads in that tab. What can I do to make the ads stop like they used to and never appear? Yes and my OS is Ubuntu 22.04

Hello, I'm looking to stopping **ALL** website Pop Up Notifications--NOT just selected ones. I've already gone to Privacy & Security-->Notificatications. This is feature is totally pointless. This feature assumes you repeadily go to the same singular site that causes pop ups --not random site you visit. I did check off the button at the bottom "Block new requests asking to allow notifications." My issue is NOT, NOT seeking to block "permissions" (I have never seen or been asked by Firefox to 'allow permission for website notifications')--I'm seeking to stop ALL website pop ups notifications that intrusively just appear at the lower right corner. I don't understand why there isn't a single button to stop these intrusive and annoying pop up pushes??? It's a no brainer. I hope you can help with a solution. Thank you in advanced.

I see that other people have raised this point,but there does not seem to be a response from firefox.

Recently my home page is blank. Each new tab opens as blank, bookmark icons are missing. I used to have a search engine when i opened Mozilla but now it's totally blank. I need to click on the bookmarks icon to open the list of bookmarks saved instead of seeing them on the toolbar. I didn't change anything and now it's all gone. I have uploaded a screenshot of my screen when I open Mozilla.

Today I tried using a Socks5 proxy that requires user and password. It seems that this is still unsupported as already concluded in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1237174 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122752

Any news on this?

Kind regards,

PS: I _was_ able to use the very same proxy with curl with

curl --proxy-user user1:pass1 --socks5 "http://localhost:1080" https://www.google.de

After Firefox did an update I opened up Firefox and ALL my history was gone. I still have my bookmarks. But I need my history for the past few weeks and months. I've tried to search and find it through using an Index.dat analyzer. But when I've tried to use it, nothing was found. I've not shut down my computer since as I want to get this back. How do I do so?

I am an application developer for a customer information system and we have dozens of clients using our web based product.

Some users recently updated to firefox version 123 and are reporting issues in two different areas of our product. Both of these areas involve java script. These clients running under prior version of firefox did not have any problem and if they switch to another browser the issue is resolved. But they need to run using firefox. I have the recent version of firefox and an older version and am able to re-produce the behavior. I will also provide a screen shot of the page working and the page not working as well.

The issue is, we have a payment page in our application. The user enters a payment amount and our page then fills in several values for them and as other values are entered eventually an Add Payment button is enabled. What is not happening is when the payment is entered the action is not run and the page treats the field as not existing and eventually displays a required field icon. There is nothing the user can do at that point to get the Add Payment button to get enabled.
