If I remember, there was a McAfee Web Advisor icon on the top right of the Firefox browser, just to the left of the "hamburger" icon. But it's not there, it disappeared. Yes, it is enabled, and it is showing in Chrome. So where did it go and how do I get it back?

Thanks.

This just started happening in the last week or so.

I do not need help with this. I am posting it in the hopes that it might be of value to others.

I was using FF's Login information to view a password for a website, but, when I clicked the "eyeball" to confirm the password, a dialog box popped up... which lead to the loss of over half an hour of my time trying to comply with the request.

For the next half hour or so, it refused to accept my FireFox password nor any of the recent FF passwords as I scoured through my multiple pw storage and recovery options.

I finally logged out of FF and when I logged back in, FF accepted the FF password that didn't work in the view pw dialog window. I went back to that dialog window and the FF pw still didn't work.

I finally noticed that the thumbnail in the dialog window didn't match my FF thumbnail and finally noticed that the dialog box title was "Windows Security"

Windows was asking for my windows login password to allow me to view my firefox credentials within firefox.

Not sure when or how this happened, but I am pretty sure I viewed a ff pw within the last week or so without this requirement.

Hope this info might save time for others who encounter the same request, Beverly Howard

I want to remove that button. How do?

It wasn't there, now it is. I'm a keyboard shortcut junkie and that blasted thing gets tab focus in the following keyboard shortcut combo:

Alt + D, Tab... Tab, <Focus is now in search box>

That's not a typeable field, it should not get focus especially since

1. the favorites indicator (a control *at the exact same level of UI* doesn't get focus) 2. It is not a tab-focusable control on the New Tab (Ctl+T, Tab, <search>) thus changing the UI "just because"

(What ever happened to keeping FF slim and lean???)

I have just updated to 76.0.1. The saved logins is requesting a password in order for me to see or copy a password that I have saved. At first I thought it wanted my Firefox account password however it is asking for the PC password. Trouble is I don't use a password to log in to my PC, I use a 4 digit pin but it will not accept this. I set a password 5 years ago & have no idea what it is. Is there a way to stop Firefox asking for a password so I can properly access my saved login info?

I had previously posted the "Why doesn't Firefox provide the option of tabs below menu bar?" at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276795

I believed that the issue was solved by cor-el at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274416#answer-1279083

However, I have since discovered that this fix does not work in Private Browsing mode. Tabs still overlap the bookmark toolbar as they did with regular browsing before applying the aforementioned fix.

Does anyone have a modification to the userChrome.css file or tabs-on-bottom.css file referred to earlier which will place tabs below the menu/bookmark toolbar when using Private Browsing as well?

As the title says I cannot play any videos on Twitter and have problems when I try to play videos on other websites. I cannot get Firefox to play videos in 60fps anywhere. Youtube won't even give me the option. 60fps doesnt work on Twitch.tv either. Playing videos on Twitch on Firefox is a nightmare in general. Super slow and laggy.

Neither of the above problems are there for me on Chrome. Videos work properly and in 60fps on Chrome.

I have already tried disabling hardware acceleration and have tried running Firefox in safe mode. Neither option worked. I'm getting kinda sick and tired of having to switch over to Chrome every time I wanna watch a video. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

In the following post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178871) it lists how to get rid of the Bink "hijacking" in Firefox. However, I don't have the SearchAssist Incognito extension installed. Additionally, I have removed Bing completely from the search options in the default as well as one click search engines under Firefox options. However, I Bing is STILL hijacking my search's. If I open a new window, it's Bing search, if I search in the address bar, it's Bing search. Nothing I do gets rid of Bing. Help? Thanks in advance!

Prior to formatting pc, I had McAfee Site Advisor installed, was recognized by Firefox, showing on top right of browser. After formatting pc, McAfee Site Advisor installation now not recognized by Firefox, i.e., not showing up on top right of browser, not even showing up in add-ons. Is it blocked now by FF, and if so, any good suggestions? I like the idea of something next to a site showing level of safety. Thanks so much :)
