One of the beauties of firefox has long been that I could use the backspace bar instead of the back button to return to the previous page when browsing. Somewhere in the last updates this wonderful functionality was lost. Is there anyway I can restore this? I'm suffering from Parkinson's Disease which oftentimes makes controlling my mouse nearly impossible.

Is there any way around this? I added by mistake.

My Firefox is currently on version 69.0. I am trying to update it by going to Firefox -> About Firefox. When I click about Firefox, the window opens displaying my current version. From the articles about updates I read, it should start automatically updating, but nothing happens. I click the "Restart to Update Firefox" button, and my Firefox session is restarted but I am still on version 69.0. I do not see any other way online to go about updating Firefox other than this route, so I am not sure what to do. Any thoughts? Thank you!

When I open a website using special symbols, the symbols are replaced by a sign with 6 hex symbols in it.

It even happens when the symbol is used in the page title (see image). Site used: https://emojipedia.org/yawning-face/).

Interestingly, other emojis from the same site are displayed correctly (means the '01F971'-type symbol is replaced by the emoji, in all occurrences on the site and title)

I have seen multiple threads about this, even on this site. However, I could not solve it with the suggested solutions. What I have tried so far:

1. Disable addons 2. Make sure fonts are downloaded through settings 3. about:config -> gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled -> make sure its true (4. no-script is not installed)


Any ideas?

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

I'm finding that Twitter is not loading in my desktop Firefox browser (89.0.1), and I'm getting the error "failedScript=polyfills". I do use an ad blocker, but it's turned off for Twitter, so I'm not sure how that could be the issue. I'm not having the same issue in Safari. Thanks for any help!

When I try to connect to the site for my internet provider, I am connected to the companies site for businesses. Ii have tried my cell (OK), my laptop (OK), and Safari (OK). so it looks like FireFox has become confused about the site meant to be accessed by that URL. Suggestions on how to reteach FireFox, please.

hello, in the previous versions of Firefox, it was possible to send an article just by clicking on the three small dots in the address bar, I don't find this possibility to send an article and its url to someone by email, almost with a single click. Is there another way to access this feature that was very interesting? thanks !

I run FF on both a Windows machine and a MacBook Pro. On the MBP the browser does not save my tabs, despite "restore previous session" being selected. I do not have this problem on the Windows machine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but it has not made a difference.

I'm running the latest version of the browser and the OS is Big Sur.

Before several updates in the last year when you added a bookmark, you could choose what folder you wanted to add the bookmark.

Now when you add a bookmark it places the tab in the last bookmark selected. Once this is done then you have to select the bookmark and do a edit. At this point you can choose where you would like to store the book mark.

Is this a bug or was this intentional on the part of Mozilla? I find this is an unnecessary step and very annoying.

I guess I didn't make myself clear about book marks.

When I click on Bookmarks the following is listed: Show Bookmarks Bookmark Current Tab Bookmark All Tabs Other Bookmark Then my list of bookmarks

When I bookmark a tab, I am not given a choice as to where I wish to put the bookmark. The tab is placed in whatever previous bookmark folder last saved. I then click on bookmarks again and then there is "edit bookmark". At this time when I do the edit I can choose where to place the bookmark. I understand how to edit a book mark.

The problem is you CAN NOT choose where to place the bookmark when you first bookmark a tab. You have to return to the bookmark and do an edit. Before several updates you could choose where to place the bookmark and not have to come back and do an edit to get the bookmark in the desired folder.

My original question was is this a bug or was this method intentional leaving out being able to choose without have to do an edit after the fact?

By the way there is NO blue start showing when I do an edit. It may be because I am using a Mac.

For about a week now, I have been having issues using netflix and youtube with firefox. I have tried answers provided in other questions, such as emptying the cache and clearing cookies - which works! But only until I leave the page or change what I am watching. Netflix is especially frustrating as it requires me to go to netflix.com/clearcookies every time I use it - which means I also have to re-log in.

I have no idea why this is happening and am getting increasingly frustrated. The problem appears in safe-mode (troubleshooting mode) and I cannot find a permanent solution. Any help would be appreciated!
