According to he description of “pinned tabs” (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pinned-tabs-keep-favorite-websites-open):

   “Pinned Tabs are small, can't be closed accidentally and open automatically when you start Firefox.”

Unfortunately, this is no true. Often, I find that my pinned tabs end up moved to another window. I cannot say why it happens, but it certainly does, and often. I suspect it is related to dragging the mouse when I am trying to click. I am disabled, and sometimes my attempt to click results in some dragging. If you drag a pinned tab off the left edge of the window, it moves the pinned tab to a new window and unpins the tab. At this point, it is quite easy to accidentally close the tab, and the tab will no longer be automatically opened when Firefox is started.

It should not be so easy to drag a pinned tab to a new window. This behavior should be changed.

Hi I have never been able to get Firefox to spellcheck in Facebook. I am using the latest version of FF and also of Windows 10 x64. I have the UK English dictionary installed. Does anyone know if this is a well known issue or peculiar to my setup? I've tried to Google an answer but only seem to come up with help for older versions. There are references to 'multi line' text and I've tried making sure I have more than one line but still get no spell check. I am able to see spell check for Facebook in Edge and Chrome, but don't want to chenge my browser! Thanks in advance for any help :-)

OK sorry about not getting right back, I ask for help then I don't follow through not the best way of doing this. So I have done some more exploring on this problem. I am not sure what's going on. So I am running dual display on a laptop running windows 10 . Seems to me everything is updated. So up on the main display (external display) it's OK everything seems to be great on it.

So if I go to the laptop display that's where my problem is. So what I have done is on max the window is where I get this problem. Min. the size window goes away if the screen's location is about 1" down from the top of the frame on the screen. If I move it up some just a little 3/4" it seems to be a small drop down window again. If I move it up even more not to the max but just up to say about 1/2" the drop down window gets bigger however it is still cut down with no way to scroll down to see the rest of the window. So what my thoughts are is the over scan of the video is too big? If so how do I take care of it? I hope this helps out. Let me know thank you for your help on this matter. So if I go to single display its all good on the laptop window.

Hi,

I am running Firefox 78.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5.

I get these unwanted advertisements for Google and Amazon whenever I go to type in the address bar (see attached images). How do I disable them? I can't see any option in the "Search" section of Preferences or searching Preferences in general. My search engine of choice is DuckDuckGo, and I do not have an Amazon account. Why does Firefox think have a desire to interact with these companies?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I recently switched from chrome to firefox.

This is causing me to miss some important messages. Is there a way to ensure that notifications such as imessages display even while watching videos in full screen?

When I m using google doc or sheet to edit a document from google drive, I notice that my cursor will freeze for 5-10 sec from time to time. No issues with chrome on the same documents. I never had this problem until the firefox updates in the past few months. I have tried the usual steps such as disabling all plugins, start firefox in safemode but nothing works. The problem is consistent across all documents, even for new documents. Does anyone know of a workaround?

Any advice would be great. If this isn't possible, this would be a great feature to have added to firefox. Thanks.

Hi everyone,

When I check my email, i have a tendency to just type in "gmail" and then search directly from the search bar. For some reason Firefox decided to give me an option to "add http://" to the beginning of my search term to 'make it easier'

Problem is now it just puts in http://gmail/ which causes issues as it doesn't add .com and I can't find the option to remove this from my search bar or bookmarks. I've reset and cleared the history and everything, and can't find this option. I'd like to just disable it outright, as all it's done is cause a headache.

Attached is the autocomplete filling in the first entry, which I cannot find a way to remove it. I realy like firefox and know there's a way to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!
