Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

As of two to three days ago (ca 20/05/22) when navigating to a website (regardless of whether it has been previously visited or not) a message appears stating "PK not found (e1)". I have to click it in order to view the website. Sometimes the message also has a checkbox stating "Allow notifications like this from www.example.com to take you to their tab". I am using the latest FFox 100.0.2 and am fairly sure the problem started after the update before the last one (the last one was this morning 22/05/22).

This has happened to me on 3 different computers.

Today, I installed Modicia linux operating system on a new computer. Then, I installed Firefox browser. I logged into Firefox the normal way and all my book marks and passwords etc... were imported into the browser, but when I clicked the "Home" button, my customized home page was gone. There were just a couple buttons pre-configured to whatever the default thing is showing twitter and 2 or 3 other buttons, but not what I had spent 3 hours configuring on my other computers. This has only happened on a new install of Firefox.

When I went back to my old computer and started Firefox, they were all gone!!! All of them. How do I get them back without programming each individual button all over again? The picture shows what it looks like NOW. Before installing Firefox on this new computer, all 32 buttons on my home page were individually configured with URLs and custom icons. Walt

Hello, I'm using Firefox 100.0.2 (OS: Ubuntu 20.04). It is not possible to manage if/when firefox updates are installed. In the options-section, there are some information about the current version number, however no chance to configure anything update-related. Updates just happens automatically and interrupt current sessions, leading to spontaneous (and surprising) dysfunction of the opened browser. That's very annoying in case of video conferencing, for example, because it is not possible to open any new tab or windows, always the note there "you have to restart firefox now" - in practice, just like a crashing error. And, the suggested restart does not re-open the current opened tabs/URLs!

Furthermore, within some updates, my language settings get lost, so it turns to English language automatically and I always must add my language packet manually again and again. Thats really annoying and maybe completely disruptive for people that are not able to read in English!

Is there any chance to come over this? Otherwise I guess I must leave using firefox as browser, however this would be not the aim I actually follow. Thx!

Previously, with older versions of Firefox, clicking on a wave file would open the wave file in the windows application that is registered for opening wave files. This was also the behavior with other audio files.

Now, it only offers to download the file which is incorrect behavior, the file just is needed for now and after now has passed, there is not reason to keep the file on the computer.

How do I restore the proper behavior.

One (and only one) of the App icons, on Outlook.com, for OneDrive is corrupted, and will not open. It is unique problem that only occurs when using the Firefox Browser, and only when trying to open OneDrive by clicking on the OneDrive icon in the app launcher feature through Outlook.com. One Drive will open from that same app icon in other browsers and One Drive will open using the Firefox Browser when accessing it from every other option. It is only a problem, when on the Firefox Browser, and only when trying to access OneDrive through the app launcher icon for OneDrive, while in Outlook.com. I've tried "Refresh Firefox" and the issue temporarily goes away, and access is successful through the link I have described, but, only immediately after the refresh. Later, it will again no longer connect again...unless I again Refresh Firefox. The issue appears (to me) to be a broken address stream when the problem occurs, but, again, this only occurs under the conditions I have described. It has worked fine for many years and just within the last four days suddenly became a problem. Yes, I have other options to access OneDrive, but the app for OneDrive while on Outlook.com emails is the most convenient since I am often communicating with a recipient of a link to a file stored in a file on the online OneDrive. I've tried the Troubleshooting Mode, and nothing appeared to be highlighted, and I have tried clearing the cache numerous time. Please help.

Hi,

I'm using Duckduckgo as my search engine, but when I type in a search string, it Firefox prepends it with https://html.duckduckgo.com/html/... This opens a search page that doesn't follow my dark theme. When I click on a link, another link is added that creates a link back to the same URL, causing a loop. This never happened before I upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 & the latest version of Firefox, 100.0.2. How can I change this back?

Thanks!
