New three-dot button that was added to the addressbar can be tabbed to and has slowed down my productivity.

My usual hotkey combo to search is <ctrl+t> <tab> <type search string> <enter>. I understand I can replace <tab> with <ctrl+e> to access the searchbar, or that I can <tab> twice - I'm just wondering if there's a way to go back to how it was a few days ago, for muscle-memory-sake?

Addressbar buttons are not customizable via the toolbar customize mode.

Browser: FF(dev)67.0b3 (64-bit) \n Attachment (which doesn't seem to want to upload, here): https://i.imgur.com/IPYJvs9.png \n Edit: No idea why newline is being removed between browser and attachment.

On my dev system (windows), I have an apache server and a number of sites defined.

They are listed in the hosts file and also configured in httpd-vhosts.conf.

I have had to stay with an old version of Firefox for the last few years, as more recent versions refused to connect to the localhost sites. I have been "forced" to upgrade and am nolonger able to connect to the local sites. I precise that doing a ping to the site address will return the 127.0.0.1 address.

What do I have to do to get this important functionality working again, please ?

I have post this questions a week ago but there is no response of my questions. I re-post it and hope someone could help to resolve the problem. The firefox v.65 crash , usually after 3o mins, when I have the new brought photoshop elements 2019 program running in the background. After crashed I try to restore the tab. However, firefox crash again right after restart and restore the tab. If I keep trying to restore the tab. The firefox has no response and freeze. A error message come out " video driver failed to restart ....... Sometime the computer get into blue screen and die. i find that the problem also happen with Microsoft Edge browser too. I google the possible issue of the crash and get some information regarding the crash. It may be cause by the photoshop element face detection feature use too much memory to run the program or the program has memory leak problem that cause firefox crash.

I did check my computer RAM memory and PC window system files. they did not show any error. I refresh firefox and reinstall my video driver. However, it make no change of the crash situation. The firefox crash and Blue screen die issues only happen if I run my photoshop element and premier 2019 program at the same time. Adobe support said that it was not photoshop element program problem for the firefox crash.

I want to find out what is the root problem of the crash and how to fix it. I also want to know any known issue firefox crash assoicated with photoshop elements program.

Hello Firefox support, where can i find a documentation about the "timeout" settings in the about:config? Thanks a lot. Michael Hardwiger from Werth Messtechnik

Details: We use a NGINX Server to provide HLS HTML5 Video over https. The videos runs great with Firefox. But after 20-30 minutes the video stop and we have to reload the page. I suppose with the timeout settings in the about:config i can solve this problem. But there are many timeout settings. Which settings are important for my task? Is there a documentation?

Thanks a lot Michael Hardwiger

It took me so long to arrange the sites I wanted on new tab, that I'd rather put up with the slow start than start over.

I have used Firefox from the very beginning—well, almost. But over the past year or so a lot of things graphics related simply don't work; or took weeks or months to implement, such as applications requiring Adobe Flash. Now, I have reached the point of changing my default browser to Google Chrome. I really don't have much choice since I have cut the cable-cord, and moved into an area where tall trees block DirecTV satellite signals. Are there any plans in the works at Mozilla to rectify the situation? If so, when? If not, that is so sad.

Firefox's native Task Manager barely accounts for 1-2% of the memory shown as being used by Firefox in Windows 10's native Task Manager.

This makes FF's TM quite useless when it comes to troubleshooting memory issues.

Is there an option that can be toggled to track down the rest of the memory? Or is this just a limitation that's being worked on?

Recently I've noticed that on youtube, the comments are entirely missing using FF on Windows 7. Comments are visible when using IE. I tried clearing cookies as recommended on a thread about a problem posting comments but it did not help. I think this must have happened after updating to v65. I have a Mac on FF v65.0.1 and the comments are there.

I need help determining what is causing Firefox to not display certain content in webpages and is putting a checkered grid in place of external content.

See screenshot of image below. What is causing the checkered grid to show. I see the image for the briefest of time when loading the webpage, then the checkered grid appears in the place of the image. This is not the only online site for which this occurs. If I disable all my plugins, I get a similar issue. If I turn off content blocking, I still get this issue.

I am using ublock origin, and umatrix.

If I load the page in a private view, then the checkered grid disappears. If I create a new tab and load the page, the check grid is now gone too, but if I reload the page with the checkered gray grid pattern, the checkered grid pattern is still there. The inconsistency is baffling me.

Firefox version: 66.0.2 Computer: Mac OS 10.13.6 I just changed my web mail password. The new password was accepted by the web mail site. The old password does NOT work. The new password DOES. I restarted the computer after making the change. When I signed back into my web mail site I had to input my new password. Firefox DID NOT ask to save the new password. (This feature IS turned on in the preferences.) When I signed out of Web mail and signed back in the NEW password was NOT automatically filled in. I went to the password manager and MANUALLY changed the password. I signed out of the web mail site and restarted the computer. When I signed back into the web mail site it STILL AUTOMATICALLY input the OLD password and I had to manually input the new one. I checked the password manager and the NEW password is there with today's date as the last time it was changed. I checked other sites with saved passwords and they still operate as the always have.

Why is this happening? What can I do to get it to ask & populate properly?

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).
