How do I disable that terrible, cancerous, ridiculous MegaBar that I am forced to use now with 77?

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

Hi! For several days I've been unable to check notifications and click emoticons on FB. I just spoke with a tech who checked other browsers (Chrome, Safari) as well as my phone and I was able to do both with them all. But I still can't in Firefox. I've checked to make sure I'm updated, and I am. So she suggested I reach out to you. Should I try uninstalling Firefox and re-installing? I'm assuming I'll lose my history? Thank you!

Somehow instead of being able to go directly to an internet address from an email instead it puts me thru something that begins with r20.rs6.net (followed by many letters and numbers) and sometimes redirects.

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

Hello. How do I remove the "remove extension" button from the context menu I don't want my any of my apps deleted in any way, shape, or form, other than using "Ctrl+Shift+A" to access the add-ons menu. In case you are wondering what add-ons I want to protect "LeechBlock" and an obscure add-on called "eScan Web Blocker."

Can anyone help me?

Hello,

I am trying to download Firefox source code. I tried the simplest option offered to me : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Using_the_VM But the link to the Virtual Machine does not work. Do you know if the site will be back soon or will I have to search for another website offering this VM ?

Sorry for my bad english. I hope my question was clear

I'm new in Firefox Developer Edition. I have a web app which has been developed by asp.net mvc and c#. There is a code to upload a file to a network path by clients on an internal server. While debugging the code, it works without any issue on Chrome but on Firefox D.E. I got access denied error while accessing the network path. (I spent 2 hrs to figure it out that the issue is being caused by Firefox D.E)

Does anyone face this issue before? is there any solution to fix it?

I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

Hi,

Is there a way to delete webauthn credentials?

Using webauthn.orgwebauthn.org :

I registered user 204348 more than once, which works.

When I go to the login in page, Windows asks for my credentials.

This is where the problem is:

It gives me more than one sign in option which makes sense.

My question is, can you delete a credential?

hello,

What's a pity with this video overlay option is that the subtitle does not accompany the overlay but remains in the original page.

What would be interesting is to have the subtitle accompanying the detached window.

Do you think it's feasible to recover both the video and the subtitle in the main window?

Hi! I just installed Firefox in my Debian 10, that I have just installed. I have to install several users in that old Mac Mini that was going to garbage and now it's working again!

I decided to activate Sync in order to keep working in the same pages from one session to another - handy! But after I login, the next page is a 500 error! This has ocurred in my Macbook with macOS, as it should, but thought I should report somewhere.

What is really strange is the logout button is not available in user menu as in the mac version, this is odd. It tuck me some hard time to manage to logout! Guess is a real flaw...

But my tests has worked really good in that old hardware!
