I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

Hello

Some days ago my Firefox automatically updated to version 80.0 and with that came an annoying white outline to my windows.

Whenever I full-screen my browser window there are white borders on the sides and bottom, a few millimetres wide. The only way to make them disappear is to scale the window down to about 50% of my screen resolution. This is especially annoying because I enjoy my dark themed Firefox. Below I have added a link to the image.

Safe Mode did not make it disappear, refreshing Firefox did not make it disappear, disabling extensions did not make it disappear. Any help is welcome.

Firefox blocks a bank account. Bank says it is not their fault. Bank account can be accessed using a different browser. Bank account can also be accessed using Firefox on another computer. Tried to refresh Firefox and gained access to the bank account but it worked only once or twice before Firefox went back to blocking it.

Hey gang! For some reason firefox will not do anything at all unless I run it in windows 8 compatibility mode. I'm on windows 10. If I open the app it won't search anything, show any webpages, etc - but the search bar still works, it'll show me suggested sites and what have you. I can also access the settings page. Aside from that, zilch. I've done a full fresh install and it didn't fix anything. Has anybody had this before? Thanks!

This border appeared recently (weeks?) around three sides of the Windows Firefox Desktop version. It is annoying. Does not respond to any recommended fixes I have found on the same issue. Tried safe mode. Tried moving the task bar. Tried changing enlargement percentage. Tried rebooting after all of the above. Nothing working. Can't find a switch anywhere.

When viewing a job on Indeed, whether on a pane or a separate tab, the application menu fails to load when I click 'Apply Now'. The connection times out after a while. It even takes an awful time to go back (reload) to the page!

When I reported this Indeed Support, they recommended using Google Chrome as their site "tends to work best on it". I can now confirm that the issue does not arise with Chrome.

I have tried pretty much everything on this page: Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

I even reinstalled Firefox but it is so smart, it realized the fact and prompted me to refresh and now we are back where we left off.

I have been instructed by BCBSIL.com to use GoogleChrome as my browser. Their website is no longer compatible with Firefox. Is there an update that Firefox can do so I don't have to change my browser to Google Chrome? It seems BCBSIL is saying only Google Chrome users can access their site now. BCBSIL is trying to direct what browser I use, isn't this illegal?

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

I have Firefox on a HP computer with windows 10 home. It is now starting to act up. Firefox will not open my gmail account or even let me search for Google to get to my emails that way. It will not open, not even the search result. Is something wrong with Firefox? Should I uninstall it? I get no error message.

I have had Firefox for years, and now it is seriously messing up. Firstly, when i open it up as usual, it opens for a second, then vanishes. Secondly, my settings are set for Firefox to restore my previous pages, but it does not anymore. Thirdly, my task manager is showing that there are 12 Firefox windows already open, ( which you can see by the attachment). Can anyone help in this matter please? Please note also that i am a basic computer user, so any help offered would have to be as basic as possible. Thank you.
