Persistant browser resizing and moving on restarting firefox

For months (maybe 6-8), every time firefox restarts for whatever reason, the browser windows always change in size, shape, and location. The "default" size always runs off the edge of the screen, which means they aren't functional as-is (whatever's off the screen obviously can't be read or otherwise interacted with). It also tends to consistently move windows to the left, so they're stacked right on top of each other (messily) instead of being spaced out.

I can and do resize it, but it's a complete pain to do so every single time... especially since I use cascading windows to let me navigate between windows easily, so the oversize and overlap means I can't easily access several windows until I do resize and move each one. Since my task bar/desktop is unreliable, I can't use the icons or shortcuts pull up windows unless I can actually click on them on the screen - this problem is outside the scope of the question, of course, it just explains why I cannot find a workaround.

Since firefox usually restarts when updating or other automated restarts, which triggers the windows to change size on restarting, I tried manually resizing the windows and then manually shutting down and reopening firefox to see if that would "save" the new sizes - this was a catastrophic failure, it failed to save or open *any* of my windows, showing no recently closed windows or tabs in history and no previous browsing sessions. And I do have it set up to open previous windows and sessions, I went through and double checked *every* setting after that. I did have session sync going, so I could save some of it - but only some, since session sync fails to save the history of any tab (to show previous pages) and I often stack several related pages in one tab to organize. I have turned to using automated shutdowns (forced shutdowns through the task manager, etc) since I at least won't lose everything that way.

I also tried (based on searching for possible solutions) disabling the window resize line in about:config (from here: https://codeyarns.com/2011/03/25/firefox-disable-window-resize-or-move/) which did nothing

I am tearing my hair out over this, any help would be really appreciated.

Recent versions of Firefox have eliminated being able to turn off Firefox nagging for updates. Further, Firefox does this constantly. I updated Firefox less than a week ago. Now it is nagging me again, with that little box that appears in the corner. This is not acceptable. Further, there are many users who do not want to update all the time, for good reasons. Mozilla should not be behaving like Microsoft, which is known for forcing updates on users, whether they want them or not.

There apparently is a way to disable update notices that might work, but involves changing a value in the advanced settings. I only found that by looking on the forum. You need to fix this. There should be an easily found choice under "updates" to turn off such notices. We who use Firefox want to have the way we use our computers, including what notices we see, under our control, not yours.

What happened to the address bar in update 65? It's awful. It use to only show my most visited bookmarks(ie:facebook) or websites I physically typed in. Now it shows everything but that. It makes it super cluttered and overall awful. I have tried messing with the settings and nothing works. I feel like I need to downgrade and disable automatic updates or move to a new explorer all together.

Hello, Just before updating to Firefox 65.0 tonight, I had my dark theme for the title bar and tabs working just right. After updating, Firefox insists on displaying the Windows 10 blue title bar and tabs no matter how many times I try to reset the dark theme again in Add-Ons. It's only when the Firefox windows loses focus that it displays my dark theme, and when itit regains focus, the theme goes right back to Windows 10 blue. I am using Windows 10, latest updates, and Firefox 65.0, the new update. Is Firefox refusing to set dark themes now, is this a 'lost feature'?

Firefox tabs crash shortly after clicking on new tab + sign with no crash report. Firefox stays up, and presents msg Gah, your tab just crashed. We can help,..... restore tab. After clicking restore tab, it comes up and crashes immediately again. I removed all Mozilla directories and files and profile and all mozilla files under apps directory, and reinstalled and get same results. Started Firefox in safemode with same results. I am able to bring up troubleshooting page and then go to help pages from there but cannot link anywhere from there as it crashes the tab again with no crash reports. I ran malwarebytes and found no issues. I disabled browser.tab.xxx and that had no affect either. I don't know if it is specific to this level as I don't know when it was updated as it is my wife's PC and was probably on update automatically. Running latest level on Windows 10 Firefox level 65

locking this thread as support is being rendered in the original thread - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249850


I've already asked the question and gave my email address but now didn't see how to get to the forum. I started out having a problem hearing sound on facebook and youtube videos. Checked sound on pc - fine. Had a pc expert uninstall and reinstall firefox and the sound worked last night. This morning the sound on those videos is gone so I uninstalled and installed firefox again and now it says that facebook and youtube don't have safe connections!!!!! I didn't appreciate being offered the reimage app and then finding out it would cost me something after it went through my pc. I am being as nice as my frustration allows.

Greetings,

I've tried all avenues that normally resolves the issue of unsaved passwords, including cleaning out caches, running in safe mode etc. In fact, I tried two different MacOSX machines, one running running 10.13.8, the other 10.14.1. Nothing works, Firefox does not offer to save credentials. I thought there might be some new HTML trick to disable login saving I'm not aware of but Safari had no problem saving the password. Any suggestions are appreciated.

After updating to version 65.0 the built-in light theme seems broken. I can activate the theme, but FF only shows the default theme. Dark (and default) theme is functioning as normal.

Update: I read some people have problems with Dark Theme as well after updating to version 65. It seems Windows colour settings now override Firefox theme settings in inactive tabs, menu and title bar.

Any way to fix this?

Would be thankful for advise.

After updating to Firefox 65 (Mac), there is now this enormous green drop-down that appears whenever I start typing in the address bar, and I cannot turn this thing off.

I've looked in Preferences > Privacy & Security > Address Bar, and all the selections there are unchecked. Search > Default Search Engine > Provide Search Selections is also unchecked.

Is there something in about:config I need to toggle? Or will I have to edit my userChrome.css to turn this off?

Thanks!

Hi, I have a problem with checkboxes and radiobuttons in firefox.

It renders a checkbox in grid-like pattern when the checkbox is styled with width and height attributes. It can be best seen in the provided image together with inspect-element for that checkbox. The relevant site is https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_input.asp. But it can be done for any checkbox.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and I've updated to Firefox v65 but the problem persists. In Chrome it gets rendered correctly.

Please advise on how to fix this behavior.

When I open a mail from my online mail box, the images are being blocked. I have read the instructions from the Mozilla forum but I can't figure out how to unblock the content. - There is no Turn Off Blocking For This Site option under the content options - There is no Disable Protection For Now option under the connection options (is it available only for secured connections?)

I have even turned off all tracking protection just to see if I would get my mail in order - didn't change anything more than just seeing more trackers and cookies under the content section.

I have opened the same mails from the same computer, in the same network in IE - there everything is fine. So it is not something from the mail provider.

This applies to all images in all mails - youtube, online shopping sites I have subscribed to, travel sites I have subscribed to (as the one from the screen shots).

I don't want to move to another browser but this is getting really frustrating - I am fighting with this for several days already :(
