Hi,

Since 1-2 months my Firefox address bar grows vertically to about 1.5 its normal size when I click it. I think this came with an update. How can I disable this? It's really annoying and unnecessary.

Thanks

Problem began with not being able to open a new tab. I updated to FF 78.0.2.

Now I still cannot open a new tab and my tabs are superimposed on my bookmark folders. Clicking on that menu bar opens a folder, not a tab. FF is unusable.

Also, the three coloured buttons, appear down on the webpage rather than in the menu bar. In order to get them out of there, I have to create a title bar that holds only them and the title of the page I'm on which seems a waste of space. Can I get them on the bar next to the search box?

Image attached.

Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated.

Since the latest updates, I can't access at least two sites I need to go to daily. (chase.com and constantcontact.com) All other sites open fine and those two open in Chrome. I read that this is a known issue with the update. I don't understand the fixes. I just need things to work!

I have a mac with a free Avaast app running. Not aware of any firewalls.

Error says: "The connection has timed out" in both cases.

Frequent Firefox Crashes

table end

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

I just paid for and downloaded the Firefox VPN. I turned it on but there is NO ICON in the Firefox browser showing that it is active. Where is the HELP for this darn thing? I went to SETTINGS and it looks like it is turned on but there should be a HELP topic for this damn thing without drilling down for over 2,000 help topics! If I cannot know 100% that it is ON and working... then I'll get my money back. I don't have TIME to fool around with BULLSHIT! Be clear. Be comprehensive. Be succinct!

There is no shortage of privacy protection plugins, which I consider to be a good thing However, Firefox also has tracking protection on board itself. This leaves me wondering if and how much overlap there is between these privacy protection plugins and Firefox tracking protection and if having both or multiple of these enabled, isn't simply overkill?

To illustrate, I have tracking protection set to strict. In addition, I use EFF Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, NoScript and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials.

If I have Firefox tracking protection set to strict, do I still need Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials? These seem to cover the same functionality but one may be better than the other. How do I know which to choose? (NoScript is more a security feature, so that's another matter).

My sister have a facebook page with shop that I help her manage, but for some reason lately we can't access the "shop" tab of the page with firefox.

We are getting The page isn’t redirecting properly error. I cleaned cookies and cache, even tried a new private window, nothing. I tried opening in edge and everything worked like no problem.

The page is the following. https://www.facebook.com/hadrastico/shop

We experienced problems both in my workstation and my sister's laptop that also use firefox (latest version, windows 10 up to date).

Any idea? Should I fill a bug or something?

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.

I'm trying to load autotrader.com. It initially loads the homepage, then quickly loads the following: We're sorry. Our site has experienced an error.

When I open the site in a private browsing window, it loads fine.

I've cleared out cookies and cache for the site. I've also cleared out cookies and cache and offline website data for all sites for the last four hours.

How can I resolve this? (And can I remove additional site data only for autotrader.com without removing data for all other sites?) Thanks for any help.

It used to be that you could drop dictionaries in $INSTALLDIR/dictionaries and they would be used. As of Firefox 62, Mozilla started putting the default dictionary in omni.ja and sometime later started ignoring the $INSTALLDIR/dictionaries directory.

But, supposedly, we can still point to external dictionaries by either setting the $DICPATH environment variable to point to a directory that contains a hunspell dictionary (en-US.aff en-US.dic) set and it would be seen and used by Firefox. OR we can set the spellchecker.dictionary_path preference.

I am running vanilla Firefox 78.3.0 ESR under Linux and neither of the above options is working (also not working in Firefox 68ESR). I have a customized medical dictionary that I have used for many years under older versions of Firefox that I now cannot use. I am hoping someone might have some idea what is going on. Is this option now broken? And I using it wrong?

$ ls /opt/dictionary en-US.aff en-US.dic $ export DICPATH="/opt/dictionary" $ firefox

I then check for a word that I know is only in the /opt/dictionary file (in this case, "algin") and it is still showing it as misspelled, so it is not using the external dictionary I defined. I tried also adding export DICTIONARY="en-US" before launching and that didn't help.

Previous research: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1475284 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1310835 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1587101 https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1261345 https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-release/source/extensions/spellcheck/hunspell/glue/mozHunspell.cpp
