My Tabs toolbar used to be under my Links toolbar. It is now above the Address toolbar.

How do I put my Tabs toolbar back where I want it (not where Firefox arbitrarily decided to put it)?

Alternately, How do I go back to FireFox 70.0.1?

System: Windows 8.1, 64-bit

              FireFox 71, 64-bit 

Note: My laptop (Windows 8.1, 64-bit) has Firefox 70.0.1 (but wants me to "update" (sic)). It has the tool bars in my preferred order. I'm not about to "update" until I know how to fix FireFox 71.

More and more sites are starting to "hide" behind cloudfare and such like which means it wants to re-load the web page automatically. Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

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?

This morning FF advised me to update to a newer version. I did and got 78.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Later I was deleting a program - winpdfeditor - in the Windows control panel and, at completion, suddenly got a message that Firefox was updating (again), but this time with a big bold warning - as I recall - that this version was not synched with anything. This new Firefox opened. My regular version, the one I'd updated this morning -- let's call it FF-1 -- was also open. In the second version (FF-2) I immediately checked under Tools > Options > Logins and Passwords, and the passwords section was empty. I closed FF-2. FF-1 is still open and still has all my passwords. I checked my Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles folder and now have two profiles - one called jn******.default, where I can see all my regular FF files, including logins.json, and one called i6******.default-release, with all files created today and no logins.json. Windows control panel also tells me I have two FFs, but identifies them as v78.01 and v72.02, and says both were installed today. I just checked about:profiles and get this: "Another copy of Firefox has made changes to profiles. You must restart Firefox before making more changes." What to do now? Obviously, I want to save the one with the passwords and delete the other one. But, as this situation is new to me, I want to do it the right way.

When attempting to access https://signup.gmx.com I get the following error;

The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: < 3522328377538005653>

I contacted GMX and they have been unable to tell me why I can't access their signup page. I had my brother do a test from his home. He's on a different ISP. He is using a VPN, but this worked off VPN too. He is using the same ESR version of Firefox that I am, and he's on the same Windows 10 version I am. Also, he's using the same router I am with the same firmware. He can access the page without issue.

What I've tried;

I do not get this error for any other site. I've been trying to access this page on and off for about 6 months. It doesn't appear to be a temporary error.

Any ideas what might be causing this? thanks

Hi; hope all is well in your world!

I have a ProtonMail account. (It works fine, I recommend it!) Had it for years, but have not used it much. Looking into VPN and proton offers one, so trying to find out more, and so am now exploring the proton site quite a bit.

I can log into ProtonMail itself very easily; I get directed to my ProtonMail inbox. Cool so far. But clicking on 'help' takes me to ProtonMail Support, in a new tab. Not so cool, because I'm now not logged in. If I hit the 'LOG IN' button at the top of that page, I can log in (again) very easily. But it takes me back to my ProtonMail inbox! Same problem if I try to log in to the Protonmail Blog.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've checked through all the ProtonMail support articles (that claim they are 'step by step guide to find easily your answer'); I've investigated 'Common Login Problems', and none of the offered solutions apply (I'm not having a problem logging in; I'm having a problem logging in to something other than the inbox.) I've tried disabling browser extensions; checked the settings of Javascript, Session Storage, and Cookies; even tried using a different browser.

I think the answer to this conundrum is to configure Firefox -- just for proton -- so that instead of opening a new tab it opens the content in the same tab. But I've searched Firefox help, and have not been able to discover how to do that.

I fear I am slowly but surely going insane.

Please help!

Hello

My firefox is getting disconnected that lasts for a couple of minutes and then the connection gets restored. It is frequent and has been taking place since a few days ago. The problem is only in Mozilla Firefox and all the other software tools are well connected to the internet. I tried to fix the problem by refreshing the firefox and then uninstalled it and re-installed it but the issue remains.

I would appreciate any help.

Without exception, any time I try to update Firefox or close the program, it balloons its resource usage and then crashes.

Every. Single. Time.

I have submitted several crash reports over the years. What is happening and how do I stop it?

Also, why does it clear my clipboard? I Ctrl-C'd a url before closing it just now, and after it crashed and a restarted it, Ctrl-V was empty.

Adding a Facebook iframe to my page cannot be fixed by using new Content Security Protocol language, how do I get it to show up on my site? I have tried to use all the different ways on the CSP language to label the source of the Facebook embed such as frame-ancestors or frame-src, etc. None of the new labels seem to work.

In addition, I have tried changing the configuration on my Browser to active_content -- that did not work. Plus, it would not solve the issue for visitors who do not have their own configurations changes on the default settings of their browser.

I read something about people editing the configuration of their server in the x-frame options. Is that any good, will that do anything? I am hesitant to start editing my server if the changes in the CSP code is supposed to make the embed show up directly in the site. That is preferable to changing the site server.

Please help here. Thank you.

Hi Guys,

Recently, I found that my Amazon affiliate adverts don't show up on the PC screen when using Firefox browser. There is no problem with Chrome, Safari or Firefox browsers on iPhone or iPad and no problems with Chrome browser on PC. Only Firefox browser on PC screen does not show the adverts. You can check it at https://drepeternews.com/support.php with different browsers on your PC. Also do check the source code page and you will see the advert links are there. Please let me know whether you can see the adverts on your PC Firefox as that may indicate whether it is an Amazon or a Firefox or my PC issue.

This issue is with links to images and with <iframes> and only occurs on my laptops running Windows 8.10 and Windows 10.00. I have enable 3rd party cookies

Any idea how to fix this. All help is very welcome.

I just got my upgrade from Firefox86 to Firefox90 working, but the tab bar is completely missing.

I still use "old-style" FIrefox. From top to bottom: File/Edit/View menu Search bar Bookmarks Toolbar Tab bar

(yes, I AM old. I've been using Firefox since Version 1 and this particular style works for me, developers be damned.)

The tab bar is completely missing. Firefox knows how many tabs I have open (it warns me when I try to exit) but doesn't show any. The area that the Tab Bar used to occupy is simply empty.

Any ideas on how to fix? (Yes, I have done the Google.)
