Hi there! Some background info: I have a desktop PC. I just got the newest firefox update. ...Thanks; I hate it. And they've altered the way the bookmarks look. So now the bookmarks drop-down menu is so long that I have to scroll down to see everything on it, (I didn't have to before). And what's worse is that sometimes one moment it will be over the Windows taskbar that's at the bottom of my screen and suddenly it will disappear UNDER the taskbar where I can't see everything and I struggle to access anything with my mouse. It's SO aggravating. How do I fix this??

Was deleting bloatware, being very careful of course. Somehow VCRUNTIME140_1.dll got deleted/corrupted. Firefox could not find the dll file. Found, and installed new dll file. I can download and run browser, but the bookmarks I have left after install don't work, starting Firefox in safe mode was no help. Trying to change profile, typing about:profiles in address bar does not take me anywhere. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox many times, to no avail. I'm turning to you for help, suggestions please.

When I try to use a platform like Netflix i get repeated error messages that WidevineCdm has crashed. This happens also in other browsers. I am not very tech savvy, but I've tried all the solutions I was able to understand on here and through Google, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Can any one advise?

Not sure if this helps, but here is one of the many crash reports I've sent: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/75e61622-4282-4a83-b86e-9861a0210422

Firefox updated itself two days ago and now 'Bookmark this page' is no longer listed in the Bookmarks drop down menu. I want it replaced. Just as it was. LIKE THIS: Click on Bookmarks, select 'Bookmark this page' or Edit this bookmark' , select 'Done'. Then I am finished with that particular bookmark. I know all about the "bookmark star" procedure - not interested. The question is simply how to put 'Bookmark this page' BACK WHERE IT WAS? In the 'Bookmarks' drop down menu. Nothing else, just this one thing. I have read too many post with out seeing a solution to this exact question that I and others are asking. Thanks for anyone's help

Is there an option to get the old behavior back? When I'm browsing for reference images and I want to just have an image or video in a window I could just right click and use view image/video. Now it's open in a new tab.

You essentially just added one useless click to the whole thing which is me having to close the tab the image came from.

If you answer with, "You can just use copy image link and paste it in the same tab." You just turned what was right click then left click into right click, left click, move mouse over, click to highlight the address, ctrl+v

When I have to do this to hundreds of images every day, every single little click counts.

So, can I restore the old and better functionally? And really, when you do these changes, give an option to keep the old method or keep both.... Gesh...

Unable to sign in to my email account for Spectrum (Charter.net) using Firefox. Other browsers work. I called tech support at Spectrum and they told me this is a known problem with firefox that they get regular calls about. They are advising customers to use a different brower and do not know what is causing the problem or if it will get fixed. Clearing the startup cache for Firefox DOES NOT fix the problem for me. Running the current version of Windows 10 64 bit pro version on a 4 month old HP Pavilion laptop. Firefox has adblock installed.

Since Charter is aware of the problem and is solving it by telling people not to use Firefox, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this and has a solution. I cleared the startup cache several times and that didn't change anything.

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

(Pop!_OS distro used) I use a handful of resources to monitor my laptop's resources. The attached image is from the htop command (note that I've been using the laptop at most an hour, and it was compltely powered off before. Unsure why it says such high times.). Over the past four-ish months, I've seen firefox's new-window command (/usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window) function very strangely. Two instances of the command randomly run for extended periods of time (anywhere from a few seconds to two or three minutes, often towards the longer end), taking up ~100% of the cpu usage for each given one second interval (the time my htop is configured to check). While I'm aware htop records cpu statistics extremely different than task manager (frankly, I'm not quite sure how it measures), this cpu spike takes place with other irregular fluctuations in my laptop, which says to me that the command is in fact doing something. When the cpu spikes occur, I see my cpu temperature rise up to 80 degrees Celsius, and it's frequency hit it's cap for only a handful of threads, while the rest stay completely unchanged.

To clarify the extent of the randomness when I say the commands run randomly: this happens without any pattern that I can identify. I've had anywhere from 1 to 10 tabs open, resting in the background from anywhere between a couple minutes to half an hour, and two new-window commands will run, unprompted, as described above. I've been scrolling through an article, and out of no where, the twin commands run. I've loaded up webpages and the commands have run. I've been watching videos, simply opened a new tab (ironic given the command name), just anything you can do on the web browser, and the commands have run. And there have been days where this issue doesn't happen at all. This can happen numerous times while I'm on firefox. It could happen once, followed by a lot of intervals of the commands running, or it could be a while before the next time it happens.

The one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb to me is that, as I mentioned at the end of the first paragraph, I see one thread 'catch' and cause this spike. It's a random thread, it can be a different one each time this happens during a given session on firefox, but I've only every noticed it to be one thread.

Not sure what's up. I tried to be as detailed as possible since I could find anything about this on these forums.
