Several times now, I had my bars switch out on me.

It was: MENU BAR TOOL BAR BOOKMARK BAR ADDRESS BAR

It is now: menu bar address bar tool bar bookmark bar

I DESPISE THIS SETTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why does it continuously change each update? Can't you just leave my dang bars the way they were set up for more than 15 years??????????

I have severe Asperger's, you're BADLY screwing my days up this way. It was pure horror to get them back, EACH TIME, as you (Firefox) figured to change it. DON'T MESS WITH MY BLOODY SETTINGS!!!!!!!!!! I can't work like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do I fix it this time?

For crying out loud. Stop screwing with the settings, and gimme a hand here, please. How many times do I need to ask this?

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?

Firefox version 106.0.1 Windows 11pro. Youtube videos will not play, unless they are Live. Weird. Checked internet. Loads on phone, loads fine in Edge. Restarted FF, cleared cache and cookies, tried private browsing, started in troubleshoot mode with no addons-- even the ad video at the top won't play. What else am I missing? Why will the live videos play but not the others? That seems like a clue, but I've hit the end of my ideas. I was able to watch youtube two days ago, the only change (afaik) is a Firefox update this morning.

I accidentally visited a bogus website instead of the legitimate UK Companies House website.

I should have gone to companieshouse.gov.uk but ended up at companieshouse.org.uk which is an escort site! (Yeah, no, it wasn't what I was looking for, OK?!)

But now I cannot get rid of the bogus address and it autofills every time I start typing "companies".

I have deleted it from History, but it still appears.

According to searches I've done, I should be able to go to tools/ settings/ privacy and security/ forms and autofill where I would be able to delete it, but Firefox 106.0.1 now only gives me the option to change saved credit card details.

So where do I find the location that this is saved so I can get rid of it.

PS No, I do *not* want to wipe all my history/ browsing data etc just to get rid of one fake address!

I recent migrated from Ubuntu Mate 20.04 to 22.04, now I see that Firefox come from snap (not form .deb package). I find that bleachbit is no more capable to clean Firefox cache and I find a tricky situation: Firefox suggest me to autocomplete fields like account or username, amount (in home banking web page) and others, but I disabled the auto complete and the suggestions I can see are even from months ago and I never see that suggestions when I was using 20.04 because bleachbit was cleaning it weekly. Now the fact is that represent a privacy problem for me. How can I fix this problem?

Declarations: FF -> FireFox. IOT -> internet thingy that is an appliance, etc.

Story:

I have PIHOLE as my DNS and run mostly RasPi machines. I have a "smart" TV and other devices that "Call home" a lot. PIHOLE is used to block them and it seems to be working. My main machine is a Ubuntu machine.

All machines point to PIHOLE as their DNS server - rather than the router, as it makes see who is doing what harder.

Things seem to be working, but then "this" happens. Upfront: I have `/etc/host` files on all pi's and the Ubuntu machine. Not sure that is good or bad, but it may be important. It is (for now) only computer names, not any other IOT devices.

PIHOLE supports a DNS thing where I can name devices on my network like with the `etc/host` file, but it is central to all machines on the network. OR SO I THOUGHT!

Now as much as you are now thinking: "That's a PIHOLE problem", it is and it isn't.

Here's why:

I make an entry in the DNS table of PIHOLE for `arlec1 - IP 192.1168.0.1` (I can't remember the exact address, but for the sake of.)

I can now `ping arlec1` and I get replies and it is correct IP address.

The idea (story) is that rather than enter the IP address, I enter the name. Further disclosure: I have NEVER UNTIL NOW used that in the browser. It is more for when I need to access them from a CLI/Terminal. It works.

I'm getting lazy. It dawned on me that I can use the name to get to my device's web page and it would save a lot of typing. (It didn't - it cost me two days or more of confusion.)

`arlec1` is NOT on any of the local machine's `/etc/host` files. I'm trying to use PIHOLE as the main DNS server. (Again: "Why are you asking here?" Sorry, I am putting all the cards on the table so you know the story up to now.)

`ping arlec1`. NOTHING. It just failed. `dig arlec1` went to 8.8.8.9 - or the "main" DNS server I use. It wasn't going through PIHOLE's DNS - for some reason. and it never got an "ANSWER". `dig PIHOLE arlec1` works. I see the correct IP address and pings are working. (skipping a bit here)

Now that it is working I open a FF page and enter `arlec1` into the URL and press enter. It goes to "Mr google". HOWEVER! If I enter: `http://arlec1` it works.

Thought!

I have/had the option to have the search and URL combined. I unticked that and tried. (Didn't exit FF, I have about 40 windows and a few hundred tabs open, it is slow doing that.) I now have a separate (and visible - so I'm guessing it should be handled separately now) URL and search areas.

STILL FAILS and goes to mr google if I don't prefix it with `http://`

Kinda defeats the purpose - doesn't it?

There seems to be an elephant hiding close by, but I don't see it.

Could someone help me get my head around what is going on and what is causing this from a FF point of view?

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

In shutting down and restarting the computer yesterday, it seems that an upgrade, or some sort of change, took place with the Firefox program. Now the tabs are a bright, loud orange in color, causing the appearance of individual tabs to melt together. In addition, the scroll bar is a tomato soup orange. I just want to return to the former eye-friendly colors, which never drew my attention. Now I almost dread having to log on it is so severe. Please tell me exactly what steps are needed to return to the former palge look. Thank you.

Helvetica font not displaying properly with greek language, in various applications, including Firefox and Thunderbird

Hi everyone!

  I come back for a problem that I faced some months ago and I think is getting worse, meaning that it looks like it is affecting more applications. 
  I first noticed that there are some greek websites, that are loading pop-up cookies settings with corrupted greek characters. The rest of the site displays greek properly. When I open the Inspector and check the font, it is Helvetica family font that is not appearing correctly (image 1). This is the case when in Settings->General->Fonts->Advanced, the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" checkbox is selected-ticked. When the checkbox is de-selected/unticked, the same pop-up cookies settings is displaying properly (image 2). The problem remains using Chrome, but Firefox is my main browser. 
  The same issue exists with Thunderbird as well, where again in Settings->General->Fonts->Advanced, the checkbox "Allow messages to use other fonts" changes the way emails appear in greek language (images 3 and 4). 
  I have also noticed that with Discord application, there is a similar issue (image 5). Some greek characters are not displaying properly. I uninstalled and reinstalled Discord (in greek), but the problem remains the same. When installing english version of Discord, it is ok. 
 The problem also seems to be with greek language versions of websites, like facebook homepage in english and in greek language (images 6 and 7). 
 I have tried to search for similar problems and suggested solutions on the internet, but there is no permanent solution so far for my PC. I have followed https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fi... solution, running Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, which resolves the problem temporarily, but not permanently. According to the above solution, "the likely cause is an extension, theme or hardware acceleration", but when I follow every step to determine which one of these (extension, theme or hardware acceleration) is the problem, all of these prove to work properly (supposing I'm following steps correctly). 
 I'm not sure if this is a Mozilla or a Windows issue. Therefore, any suggestions for a permanent solution would be much appreciated.

Long ago, I would use Tab-Mix Plus but that functionality went away around FF57.

For most cases since then, Cntl-Shift-T works well.

But I found a use case where Cntl-Shift-T does not work. If one has an active form in progress in given tab, then opens another link on top of that, then closes the tab with Cntl-W or equivalent, then after the CS-T the form progress from the overlaid url is lost.

I use Cntl-W so freely that I can miss that I have accidentally closed tabs that I normally like to keep open. I sometimes don't notice till much later, too long for easy CS-T and I have to recreate from other resources. I have already removed the X-close buttons per tab.

Tab-Mix Plus would just prevent closing of protected tabs all-together and prevent both of these issues.

I have my own webapp framework, and my primary way to workaround this is use target=_blank liberally on local links. But that is an unnatural process in many ways with extra overhead of creating and destroying tabs rather that simply redirecting the current one.

Maybe there's another way around all of this?

Hello, I am a user on Mac! I am having an issue with moving tabs fluidly. Yes, moving tabs inside the window is easy but when I move them outside the window, it makes me a little uncomfortable. In the images and video I have sent, you can see that an unnecessary thumbnail of the tab pops up even when I move the tabs inside the window. This makes it harder to know if I am even moving the tab in the first place. Then it takes like 2-5 seconds for the new window of the individual tab I moved to appear. If whatever I said is quite confusing which I apologize for, I would very much recommend taking a look at Google Chrome, the browser I don't prefer, however, try moving the tabs around and outside one window and creating more windows with individual tabs. It feels more fluid or swift and easy to handle. Compare that to Firefox and a big difference is to be seen. I am concerned about this issue really because I am replacing my previous browsers, not only Google Chrome but browsers like Edge too which are capable of not having that issue, with Firefox instead and hopefully Firefox can have this capability. I also multitask a lot so I usually encounter this problem on Firefox. I hope this is fixed and am sure it will help a lot of users! Thank you! Here is a YouTube video link for to provide a further understanding of the issue: https://youtu.be/jRuBDH32hPI
