Hi, Currently, it is possible to close tab only from line of Tabs on the top of the window. Unfortunately in this view, it is impossible to see the long name of Tab (in case if you have tens of it) and the user should open each Tab before close it. Would you add functionality to close Tabs from the Tabs dropdown list ( just add X at the right side of each line) or add some Tab Manager view (as you have for Bookmarks) with same close Tab function?

Thank you.

When I launch Firefox, it waits for a couple seconds (just enough time for me to start typing in a Google search string). Then, after I have finished typing in the string, I look up from the keyboard, to see that the Firefox screen had flashed, and all of my typing has been lost because the browser effectively re-started.

This is quite frustrating, although I have come to realize what is happening, so I just wait for several seconds until after the screen flash happens, so I can start using the browser for real. This behaviour is quite annoying.

I saw a (closed) forum message about this problem that suggested (a) turning off hardware acceleration, and/or (b) turning off your extensions (and re-starting Firefox), to try and find which extension might be causing the flash to occur.

So I tried those suggestions. Turning off hardware acceleration had no effect, but I did find that an extension called "IBM Security Rapport" was the one causing the screen-flash problem. This is an important extension that my bank (Bank of Montreal / Canada), uses to protect their clients safety when they are doing online banking. I do not want to turn it off. If I did turn it off and I end up having some sort of hacker issue, the bank could refuse to help me recover any funds that I might have lost, because I disabled one of their main security systems.

I am writing this memo, just because that other forum conversation that I referred to, asked that users let them know which addons they might find which caused the Firedfox screen-flash problem.

Thanks. GW

I have both FF 76 and 77. At least with FF76, when I type in the address bar, in the drop-down, identifies the Bookmarks with a star to left of the bookmark so I know it's a bookmark at a glance, but still does not show any identification for History items. But in FF 77, there is NO star identifying Bookmark items and nothing for history items. Why aren't there any symbols identifying or categorizing the address bar drop-down items? I can't tell if it's Bookmarks or History or Open tabs. Thanks.

Unless I knowingly have a setting enabled to prevent these symbols.

When I create a new tab I no longer get a search block in the centre of the page in addition to the one at the top of the screen. How can I restore this feature. It is very useful because you can input a search request without being presented with a menu o search methods and a list of recent searches.

I have a website which has been running fine for over 10 years now. On it I write about Whisk(e)y and for each review I like to add a picture or two. The pictures have all been taken by me, mostly with my Nikon D200 or D300.

Sice the last Firefox upgrade (in the last week) many of my photos have suddenly been turned through 90° on the site. The pictures themselves haven't been changed, just the viewing of them and we're talking about many hundreds of pictures. I don't know what your rules are about posting links but if you want to see the problem my website is non-commercial and called Whisky-Emporium. BTW the problem doesn't exist in Explorer but I don't like using that. Thanks in advance.

With a normal Google search, I can middle-click all the results to open them in new tabs.

But when I middle-click in a Google image search, it just scrolls the page. If I move focus away from Firefox then come back, sometimes it lets me middle-click.

Does anyone know what's going on here? (Firefox 77)

Since Firefox 77, the old style URL bar is gone, replaced by something else. There are several solutions around to get most of the old behavior back. One particular thing that I am still missing is curating your frequently visited pages.

Let me explain: I have configured Firefox, so that the URL bar on opening shows my frequent pages (like in old times). Sometimes, I page made its way in there that I didn't like. When going to that entry and pressing delete, I was able to remove it from this list and for it to no longer show up. In Firefox 77 this is no longer possible and now mutliple entries for the same top-level website and some unwanted business entries are clogging up this list.

Any idea how to solve this?
