Hi guys!

I'm a college student and my university uses Blackboard as a way to access our courses. Unfortunately, my Firefox has been breaking and not loading all of my courses. My university tech support is no help and they told me to contact Blackboard and Blackboard told me to use Google Chrome. I already installed Chrome so I can use it temporarily to do my coursework but I really don't want to use it permanently, I have my computer set up exactly how I like it and I prefer to use Firefox.

I think the problem started around when the September 22nd update for Firefox was automatically installed. Some things I've tried to fix the issue are: 1. Fresh install of Windows using the Razer Blade's recovery to factory default; 2. Update Windows to latest version (except the 2004 feature update, it causes my laptop to black screen on bootup); and 3. Fresh install of Firefox and changing my privacy settings to standard rather than the strict settings I usually use.

I didn't want to install an older version of Firefox because of all the warnings on the webpage, but I'm really not sure what else I can do. Has anyone else had this happen? Any fixes?

When I go full screen by dragging the browser window to the top of the monitor (Windows 10): My tabs row, toolbar and bookmarks disappear. There is a big blank white space where they should be. Screen shot attached. So can't use the instructions to exit full screen mode by clicking the menu button, because it's not there. The only thing I've found to work is to refresh firefox.

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.

Hello! I immediately apologize for any possible mistakes or incorrectly composed sentences - I am writing this message through a translator. I hope that I can convey my thoughts, please treat with understanding. I just started using Firefox, after Chrome and Edge it is like a breath of fresh air, everything works great, except for the Ebay website. The site itself is working, but I can't log in there. The page is loaded after entering data with the message "Access To Website Blocked". In support, I found a similar problem, they advised to disable tracking protection, but this doesn't help. I also cleared all browser data, history, cookies, cache. Launched the browser in safe mode. It doesn't help either. I thought that the Adguard program was to blame for this - I turned it off. And it didn't work either. Moreover, I can access the site without any problems through Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Even through the mobile version of Firefox, you can log in without problems, but on a PC there is no. I made such banal methods as rebooting and checking for system and driver updates. The PC rebooted, Windows 10 was updated to the latest version (Home, 64 bit, version 2004, KB4566782, OS build 19041.450), the drivers were all updated too. Firefox on this computer has not been used before, i.e. the reason is definitely not in the hardware and hardly in the software. Only one site Ebay doesn't work. Everything else works flawlessly. Please, help fix this problem. Or at least help send Mozilla report somehow.

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.
