This morning I received an email stating: If you are running a version of Firefox equal to or older than Firefox 78 (general release or ESR) and you have a Mozilla account, you must follow these steps to ensure continued operation of your account in Firefox: I have firefox 115.7.0esr (64-bit) running on a mid 2010 macBookPro with High Sierra OS 10.13.6

My question: what does this mean? Is my FF equal or older? And is a Mozilla account the same as a FF account? PLEASE help me, by explaining exactly what I'm supposed to do and HOW and reply in simple comprehensible language, I am NOT a tech/nerd/geek and already following all these numbers has given me a headache! Thanks in advance.

No way to ASK a question in the Monitor section, there is no GET HELP button.

Application error: a client-side exception has occurred (see the browser console for more information).

In general, getting to the "ask a question" button in the support website is like finding hens teeth.

Didn't there used to be a Discussions forum, where you could see all of the questions being asked?

This functionality works in every other browser I've tried (Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera GX), so it's not a Google problem, I don't think.

How to disable language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text for certain language?

I want to disable the "language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text" feature that shipped in 122.0 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/122.0/releasenotes/)

This new feature is cool, but it has actually slowed down the speed at which I select text. Originally, I could double-click to select an entire sentence, but now a double-click only selects a single word.

It would be great if there was a way to disable this feature for a specific language.

Thank you.

Firefox 123.0 Now Opens up New Tab or Window - How to Override This?

Ever since I installed Firefox 123.0, when I execute a search on Yahoo.com, Firefox automatically opens up a new window or tab (depending upon how you have it set up in settings) when it didn't before. When I try this with Firefox using Google.com to search, it does NOT open up a new window/tab. But when I try it with Yahoo.com when using Google Chrome, it does NOT open up a new tab. So it would appear that the behavior is being caused by something in Firefox.

I tried making various changes in settings and Firefox about:config that were recommended in previous questions here, but they did not alter the behavior. I would like the behavior to return to simply performing the search within the same window (I can always scroll back to get the original page). Can anyone help?

Starting this morning I suddenly cant delete or mark emails as read in Outlook.live.com. Even if I open an email, and it appears as read after that, if I refresh or leave the page and come back, its marked as read again.

I tried dropping all add-ons (a kill switch to drop all add-ons and re-activate them is still a feature I feel Firefox needs, I have to click every single one of them every time) to no avail.

I was in the process of writing this question on the Microsoft forums (which is usually like whizzing in the wind) when I thought to try a different browser. I had zero issues and Outlook.live.com worked perfectly normal on Microsoft Edge.

This HAS to be a bug in a recent update in Firefox

Twitter's login page won't load when I try to open it in Firefox. https://twitter.com/ https://twitter.com/ loads just fine, account pages like https://twitter.com/firefox load just fine, and individual tweets individual tweets load just fine. But when I click the login button on any working page, or go directly to the login page at https://twitter.com/i/flow/login, all I get is a white rectangle in the middle of the screen that flashes a loading-spinner for a few frames every two seconds but never actually loads any page content.

I can log in just fine in Chrome, so the problem is specific to Firefox. The problem started at least a week ago, but I don't log in on my desktop regularly enough to know exactly when the problem started.

I turned my Browser Privacy setting to "Standard" and cleared all site data from Twitter, with no effect. I use uBlock Origin, but the problem persists when I disable it. The problem also occurs in Private windows.

Hi there. I use mailjet for sending email newsletters and campaigns. The images that i was uploading into the mailjet templates where displaying fine both on mailjet and when sent to mozilla firefox users.

The problem is that for 10 days now; when i upload images in mailjet and sending newsletters; the images are not displaying in mozilla. In contrast, when i use chrome everything displays fine, both mailjet and email accounts.

I had a long chat history with mailjet support and they requested to follow these instructions to fix this issue first: https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058211453-Why-are-my-images-not-displayed-missing-in-the-Email-Editor I did this but i had no success so they requested me to use chrome instead of mozilla. But that is not the solution of the problem because this must address all different browser users.

Can you please help me on this?

Thank you,

I have Yahoo as my home page and usually search from it starting out. I noticed, however, after the last update or two in the last week that when I hit search, it opens the search results in a new tab. It didn't use to do this, but I can't find any Firefox option to make the searches stay in the existing tab. Can anyone help with this? I don't think it's Yahoo's settings, because I'm not signed into it. It seems like the Firefox update created this new behavior.

There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi,

I'm trying to remove the bar at the top of firefox browser with tabs in them. I read another article (https://support.mozilla.org/es/questions/1417387#answer-1588947) under spain link, i think, and the solution said to write "TabsToolbar-customization-target { visibility: collapse !important; }" somewhere. Where do I go to write that?

I tried the console by pressing f12, but that doesn't seem like that's it. In that article it also mentions to go to about:config and change the status of "browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar" to false, or delete it, but didn't work either.

I also checked the menu options under More Tools and Help but can't find it.

Exiting and re-opening Firefox didn't solve the problem.

How can I completely remove the tab bar and regain 3/4 of an inch of screen space. It would be nice if Mozilla would just have a on/off button for it. I've tried creating a folder called Chrome within my Firefox Profile folder. I then created a text file within that folder and named it userChrome.css. I put this string in the text file #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } This did not work, does anyone know the best method for getting rid of the annoying tab bar?
