Firefox: Move Find bar to the top

I recently upgraded my system and, after installing and using Firefox, I notice the Find (Ctrl + F) bar is now at the bottom of the window. Whereas, it was previously at the top (which is more like every other application I use).

After some head scratching and web searches, I remembered I had to fix this issue previously (after a Firefox upgrade some time back). The method to fix it then could be found here: [there a way to put the Find Bar at top] That link is of course to the same question asked 4 years back.

I have once again followed the procedure there explained per: • Access my Firefox profile folder. In my case:

  C:\Users\<Me>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\5ym42ewi.default

• Create folder therein called ‘chrome’ • In that folder create a file called ‘userChrome.css’ • In that file add text:

  .browserContainer > findbar {
    -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0;
  }

However, after doing that (and restarting Firefox), the Find bar stubbornly remains glued to the bottom of the window.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue?

As a separate note to the developers: This issue is long-standing, that a web search reveals is still relevant to many users. Any chance of considering making it a standard option?

Unfortunately, I downloaded “SaveFrom.net Helper” without reviewing it.

Since downloading it I have been receiving a alerts from “McAfee WebAdvisor” about “dangerous pages blocked”.

I was able to remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” add on in Firefox, but am unable to remove the “Savefrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my normal Firefox Bookmarks.

I can no longer easily see my Firefox Bookmarks and have to keep opening the Firefox Application Menu, then select Bookmarks, then select Manage Bookmarks in order to see my bookmarks.

Can you please advise how I can safely remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my Firefox Bookmarks.

I have a user who runs SRS/Crystal Reports on their Windows 11 Lenovo laptop, but every time we go to the website where a Java-enabled pop-up window for viewing spreadsheets is supposed to load we keep getting a "A plugin is required to play this content" error message, but no option to install/approve the running of Javascript.

I have downloaded and installed the JRE and JDK on the endpoint device, but still no luck getting Firefox to load it. I am running the 32-bit version of the web browser, not 64-bit, so I am kind of stumped about how to proceed from here.

Is there a place I can manually download/install these Java plug-ins?

Thanks.

I have at least one extension that has had a later version than what I have for days and firefox is not updating it even though everything is set to auto-update. i hate to have to uninstall/reinstall it since I will lose all the settings I have in place. Any ideas?

The developer says firefox is just waaay behind on extension updates and it isn't their fault.

Like the title says, whenever I try to zoom out of an image to make it smaller, it causes the image to zoom out very far in just one scroll "tick".

To be more specific, I'm talking about just scrolling (not using ctrl+scroll). An example would be with Piskel.com where you simply use the scroll wheel to zoom the canvas.

Zooming in is perfectly fine, but when I try to zoom out it seems to zoom out by 3 or 4 ticks. On some websites, such as Piskel, it even it zooms the image out all the way making it very small and impossible to see (It does it with just one scroll tick).

My question is if there is a way to change or fix the zooming, making things zoom out more incrementally. (I recently switched from Chrome which didn't have this problem)

I've noticed that some websites will endlessly spam the console (in developer tools) with rubbish, and I would like to be able to block that from happening. I'm ignorant about this sort of stuff in general, and it confuses me how a website can even access my browser's console to begin with.

The latest example I came across which caused me to finally ask about it, was some strange JavaScript spam with some kind of < div > (had to edit this with spaces to show it in the post) structure containing over a thousand characters. This entire thing gets spammed in the console at a rate of a few every second. I recorded a short gif of it, which imgur seems to have converted into a video: https://i.imgur.com/dosMZjo.mp4

When I go to download a ZIP file, it will always attempt to download the file directly rather than letting me open it with WinRAR. When I go into the browser settings I see that some other file types have options to choose how they're handled, but there's no entry for ZIP files. I've tried refreshing my Firefox install and yet the issue still persists.

I used to have this option before I reinstalled Windows a while back (where I kept my files but not programs). I don't know for sure that that's what caused this to start, but the timing would line up.

In the past, when ICS files were in a mail, I had been asked what to do, and could open them in OUTLOOK. This option has been apparently cancelled and it only asks where to save the file, without any option to open it directly. Furthermore, when I try to modify it in the "settings" and change it to "Always ask" I can't find no ICS files nor OUTLOOK SCHEDULE files. Please advice. Thanks

Hi I have been a user of Firefox for many a year, and this is the first tme I've come across an intrusive problem. Since updating to the latest version, I find I can no longer change the icon on a URL shortcut. I had quite a few of them, which helped distinguish (obviously) what I might want to select. That was then. Now, I have a load of indistinguishable Fireox logos which make finding the shortcut I want imossible. On going to change the icons, I find the Website Document tab in properties is no longer there .. while I have Firfox installed. Remove Firefox and the capability magically returns. I have re-installed Firefox in case of corruption, with no change. Before I remove Firefox permanently (which I'd be loathe to do), does anyone know the cause ... or solution or workaround?

I have always set my option for all download file types to "Always Ask" and now Firefox not only asks me where I want to save the downloaded file, but also downloads a copy to the Windows Download folder. Why am I getting double downloads? I only want one copy of a downloaded file, not two copies. Now I have to go to my Windows Download folder and delete the duplicate downloaded files. My question is, if my Firefox download option is set for all file types to "Always Ask", then why are you downloading the file twice??? I have specific folders where I want files to reside. I don't want to have to remember to go to my Windows Download folder and delete the duplicate files. How can this duplicate file download problem be fixed?

I am currently creating a website in WordPress. It has many embedded YouTube videos.

On pages with embedded YouTube videos, in order to go back to the previous page, I have to click the Back button multiple times. If I right-click on the back button, I see that the page I am currently on has been listed multiple times.

Many other support questions list this issue. I have found that if I disable "Site Isolation" (URL about:config -> set fission.autostart to false -> restart Firefox), the issue goes away.

I am interested, however, in the user experience for those who will go to my site. Is there anything I can do so that "Site Isolation" does not cause this problem?

Thanks, Jeff
