hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

What happened to the Download Icon Arrow for the FF Toolbar? It is missing from my toolbar and not available in Customize. I have a blank space where the where the icon used to be. I can click on that space and the downloads will show, but the icon is not there. If I go to Customize to drag it to the toolbar, the Download Arrow is not there either.

I am attempting to reinstall firefox. Old one screwed up and I eventually uninstalled it. Ran revo uninstaller, turned off firewall and antivirus, wifi connected. Started Firefox Installer as Administrator. Firefox Installer window appears on Desktop. The interior of the window is completely blank, all white. Wait. Nothing happens. Click on it, get Not Responding message at top of window. As far as I can tell the Installer did nothing but open the window. Repeat downloads of the Installer did the same thing. Help?

Hey Everyone, Facebook was working fine on my desktop until yesterday when Facebook decided it wasn't and switched me to its Android version 'for a better user experience' which (as usual with FB) means it's worse. For example I can search FB Groups but I can't open any of them. Also It tells me I have to switch to Messenger' but the install link doesn't work so I'm probably missing all my messages. Please help - I don't want to use a different browser, I like Firefox :).

This week Facebook decided to stop working properly on Firefox. The image below shows what happens on first attempting to run Facebook after the computer starts. It will hang like that indefinitely. If I close the Firefox tab and run Facebook again it will work. Why does closing the tab or browser make it work on the 2nd attempt? Please note: This not a cache cookies issue, it happens regardless of whether I've run Ccleaner or not. That is the question. A real world analogy would be something like this... I open a porch door then open the front door but the front door won't open. I close the porch door, open it again, then the front door opens. Do you see what I mean. Nothing has changed except opening the porch door a second time which has no physical impact on the front door. I'm probably not describing that well, it's as if doing an unrelated thing a second time makes something work. I've started to use Chrome for Facebook now, I'm fed up of Firefoxes problems lately. Another problem I'm having is a strange Youtube anomaly: https://support.google.com/youtube/thread/77200164?hl=en Particularly annoying. Thanks for any help.

Hello, This morning when I started Firefox, it uploaded and installed itself to the current level. I run Windows 7. Firefox reopened with the advertisement about Mozilla VPN. IT CLEARLY displayed the OS Software levels it would support for the VPN, including but not limited to Windows/XP , 7, 8, and 10 . When I started the offer purchase it took me to the DOWNLOAD page which offers WINDOWS 10 download ONLY. Will this WINDOWS 10 download work with my Windows 7 ?? Confused here !

Back several versions ago, a Firefox update moved tabs to the top of the screen, just below the header and above everything else. For me, this is totally counter-intuitive. So I restored the older version of FF and disabled updates. Well now we're at the point where some pages aren't working and I'm being forced to update (v82). And of course, the problem has returned.

Is there any way to return the tabs to a position below the address bar and above the page itself?

And while I'm at it, is there a way to customize the looks of the tabs so that they once again look like the file folder tabs that they once did with the curved top corners? For me, this made them more easily identifiable as tabs.

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

After the latest Firefox update was automatically carried out, I found that my access to my e'mail on a web based site is being prevented. I enter my normal name and password, I can see communication links taking place in the bottom left hand corner of my web page but then nothing happens, my entry web page does not go to the e'mail account web page.

I have tried changing the proxy contol to both "None" and "Automatically controlled by Firefox" but that has no effect. I am not using, nor is there any Proxy involved. I have also checked the firewall and that is open for my e'mail site.

The e'mail access was fine untill this update was installed.

What do I need to do?

Many thanks for any help.

Hi All,

For some reason, I have two versions of Firefox showing in my Programs and Features, on Windows 7.

Version 74.0, installed 13/03/2020, and version 80.0, installed 28/08/2020.

I've seen another topic mentioning this problem for older versions, and tried using a Registry Cleaner as mentioned in that one - but it has made no difference, and both versions are still there.

I'm wary of trying to uninstall the 74.0 version using the Firefox uninstaller, as when I start that there is no mention of it just uninstalling 74.0 - it gives the impression it is uninstalling all versions, which is not something I want.

I just don't need two versions of Firefox on my PC, especially when the older version is no longer used.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
