Firefox on PC. I had an icon on the toolbar for Google Translate, then a Firefox update came along and the icon disappeared. Google Translate as an extension is still there but can only be accessed using CNTLSHIFT keyboard keys. I cannot drag and drop Google Translate back onto the toolbar using Other Tools/Customize Toolbar or any other way I could think of. The curious thing is, I have another PC that I believe has gone through the same update process and the icon is still there. What happened?

Every week to ten days Firefox loses all the passwords I have createdand stored in the browser. This has now happened for the fifth or sixth time without me having done anything different. I have been using Firefow for over ten years and found it to be reliable and excellent however over the last months it is no longer reliable, extremely slow and hangs. On top of that I now have this recurring issue with saved passwords. The version is apparently up to date and I don't think has been updated within the last two days, but so frustratingly it seems you have taken an excellent product and turned it into a steaming pile of dung.

If I can't get this issue resolved effectively and immediately I really dont't see the point in continuing to use the product as I'm spending too much time trying to resolve issues that were never before a problem.

What's the current instruction for deleting IRLs from the address bar pull down menu? This is not about the history, per se, of having been to any location. All I would like to do is delete several extraneous IRLs that are in the pull down menu which I don't need or rarely use, at least from that location.

Thanks.

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

Hello, John aka Beer Gutt here.

A while ago (about three months), I moved my hard drive to a new PC with better parts. It has a better mother board, a better graphics card and twice the RAM. Anyway, since then Firefox hasn't worked the same. When i open Firefox, there will be random pieces of letters or words on a webpage just gone, making a lot of them impossible to browse because I can't read half of the the new Alien dialect on the screen. Some websites have been better than others, but its gotten to the point where some web pages (Like YouTube or Reddit for example.) will just be a mess of random de fragmented lime green blocks that completely corrupt the page and will shift, move and appear at random covering up text as I scroll down. Videos will play just fine, it's the rest of the site that's effed up. Also on YouTube videos, where the timer for the video is located, some of the numbers just won't show up. Like it will count down fine but won't display certain numbers in the timer. Funny thing is, is that this doesn't just affect the websites, but the browser itself. For example, hovering my mouse over different tabs will highlight them and show me the preview text of the tab. All that is good until I move over to a different tab and voila, the text is gone, and then suddenly all the other tabs are either blank or just missing random letters and numbers in the tab. This is only happening in Firefox btw. No other app on my PC is doing this. I've tried refreshing Firefox about six times now, I've uninstalled it three times in an attempt to fix the issue along with restarting my PC multiple times... All of that, and I find out yesterday that it works perfectly when in "Troubleshoot/Safe mode", and only when in Troubleshoot/Safe mode. I have no idea what is causing the issue... *PePeLaugh* 
 See, I would use another browser but I've been using Mozilla for 8-9 years and would like to avoid the hassle of moving everything to a new browser... I would VERY much appreciate any help at all.
 I'm running 64-bit windows 8.1 on the latest updates and my PC specs are roughly as follows below. I look forward to a response...

MSi 970 Gaming Motherboard

AMD FX(tm) 8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.00 GHz

My wife lost her driver's license. In Nevada you can order a replacement online. You need data from the license to get a new one. If I had the license to get the data, I wouldn't need a replacement. I know the data I need is in the site data in Firefox. How can I find it? I see all sorts of ways to clear the data, but no way to view it.

I updated to the latest version of Zoom on Aug. 31 - as directed by my university. Immediately experienced issues using Zoom, and using MyLearningSpace aka Brightspace aka Desire2Learn.

Issue with Zoom: When I'm in a class (Zoom meeting), if I share screen, the Show Video panel option is now gone. Completely disappeared. When I stop screen sharing, the Video Panel comes back, and the option to hide or show it returns to the menu. Unfortunately, this is a nightmare for me - I can either show my students their slides, or I can see them to answer their hands up. I can't do both - which obviously I need to be able to do. So I basically can't run class on Firefox now. My uni IT has no idea what is causing this or how to fix it.

My uni IT keeps telling me, over and over, "Stop using Firefox. Use Chrome." I don't want to stop using Firefox, though. I've used it for decades and I believe in the product.

I asked over an a Zoom community forum, and several Firefox users replied that they are having the same problem. I can forward that thread, if it's helpful.

I am using the latest version of Firefox.

Thank you for any suggestions.
