I just installed Firefox (88.0) on a brand new Surface Pro, signed in to my Firefox Account, which gets me my stuff synced over, such as the Grammarly, LastPass and Pushbullet extensions. I log into those respective applications as needed. I start browsing.

Now, when I open either of those extensions from the menu bar, they open their little in-place window. If I now touch anything in these windows, about 80% of the time the following happens:

  • The little in-place window closes
  • Firefox becomes unresponsive (menus, other controls, web pages, close window)
  • This lasts for 60 seconds (reliably)

However:

  • If the extension is visible on the menu bar: problem happens
  • If the extension is tucked away in ">>" (More tools...): no problem (this is also a decent-ish workaround)

Given that this affects multiple extensions, I'd expect this to be a Firefox issue. Also, I have no idea how to troubleshoot this (I have not been able to find logs).

Things I tried to no avail:

  • Refresh (through installer)
  • Cleaned out profile manually
  • Tried extensions before logging them in

Thank you for your help.

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.

I am an old fart (76) and had firefox reasonably set up and nor this tired old brain must remember how it was and how to jump through the hoops that the juveniles thought as better... Give me a break !! the complaint I had which I found a workaround was to DELETE up to 1G of cookies so I had a little usable ram and space on my HDD... Some of the cookies were HUGE... My OS has been Linux mint or other flavours of Linux since about 1990 and used to boot in less than 20 seconds, then it would load the previous days applications where I left off in another 10 seconds... Now, judging by the sixes of the files downloaded to refresh Firefox you are writing BLOATWARE WTF... Why do you think I would not touch Intel & windoze? DAZE of compulsory Amerikan speling & corporate spying are numbered if this keeps deteriorating... 20,000 cookies a day? and how big is the file to install firefox... That is what I call BLOATWARE...

I watch informative YT but when it gets boringly repetitive I just scan what is force fed in the vain hope I will spot something of interest... 90% is crap, or dumb'ed down BS to find a few paste jewels...

My brain is somewhat addled with Dementia, and afflicted with aspects of Asperger's Syndrome, Bi polar disorder... Give me a break Please...

I have been a fan of the awesomebar for quite some time; tab selection using % enables progress after chaotic web surfing and bookmark searching using * circumvents the need of retracing already known websites. (I have removed suggestions and history though, I find that those are mostly in the way.)

One limitation for me as a programmer is that while searching for Python helps me find the correct bookmarks, including C in a search is not helpful, as a c anywhere in a bookmark will give a hit. This even goes for '.com'! The same problem occurs when searching for bookmarks in the bookmark library.

My suggested improvement would be to allow search terms to be interpreted narrowly. This could be done by adding quotes, for example "C" (single quotes could also work).

Is this already possible in some way? And if not, where would be the best place to suggest the improvement? [feedback page reads "Please check back soon"] ( and I'm not sure whether this suits the Bugzilla platform.

Is there any way to stop Firefox automatically installing updates on Linux? It's incredibly disruptive when I'm in the middle of work, open a new tab and Firefox says it needs to be restarted to install updates. When in this state, opening new tabs yields the same result. I'm using 87.0 built for Ubuntu, installed out of the package repo.

I would like for Firefox to be able to: Warn me when closing multiple tabs without restoring my previous session.

I have researched online and tinkered with the browser's settings and I could only manage to make Firefox warn me when closing multiple tabs when I also had the option to Restore previous session enabled. I hope that something can be worked out in about:config.

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Dear Mozilla Community,

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

I'm having trouble sharing my screen with Firefox 87 on Ubuntu 20.04.2.

What happens when I go to share, the "Will you allow <site> to share your screen" window pops up. "Select a Window or Screen" is autofilled, but I cannot hit 'allow' (it is greyed out). When I click the dropdown, the "Select a Window or Screen" option is greyed out, and my only other option is "Use Operating System Settings". When I select this I can hit "allow", but no other options pop up and my screen is not shared, although firefox seems to think so (shows the orange symbol at top, site privacy settings show sharing allowed).

I thought perhaps the cat had hit some keyboard shortcut (goodness it would be nice to be able to disable those!) and removed "Bookmark This Page" from the Bookmarks pull-down menu, but based on the number of people asking the same question, I now suspect that the latest Firefox update somehow removed it. I have seen MANY people asking about this, invariably answered with how to work around it being missing by using a tiny blob of an icon (which tiny meaningless blob among many, my not-so-young eyes are not certain - apparently it looks like a star). WE WANT IT BACK. Please put "Bookmark This Page" back where it belongs - in the pulldown menu called "Bookmarks". Or tell us how to put it there ourselves. Leave it in the teeny blob menu also if you like - maybe there's someone out there who actually likes it there. But please, for the love of usability, put that entry back on the list of things you can do from the Bookmarks pull-down menu! Not all of your users are 20-somethings with perfect eyesight!

Hi i would like to know how i can change the font size of my Firefox Menu.

i already change the size of the layout whit "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" but it didn´t change the font size of the tabs or the menu. i did some research and found the userCrome.css technique to change some fonts sizes. i already change the font size of the address bar, PopMenu and tabs. But when it comes to the Main Menu, and bookmarks the font still in the same size. i also try changing the fonts size on preferences but nothing has been working.

i guess there must be a simple command line to add in the userCrome.css file to fix this but i can find it.

if some of you can help me i will appreciate very much.

i am working on a linux machine. thank you very much

When using screen sharing, FF (up to the latest release 88) offers to share each of the open applications or the full screen. What's missing is to share just one of 3 monitors, if that's what one is using. Chrome has that option, but FF doesn't. Is that on the roadmap to be added? Or is there a plugin or hidden setting that would allow me to do that already?
