I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

When I go to a website that requests access to my webcam and/or my microphone (and I grant it), a tiny popup comes up over the tab bar. That's fine. But when I close the tab using either or both, the popup doesn't go away. It doesn't contain the mic and/or cam icon(s) anymore, just the Firefox logo, but it doesn't go away and, oh my, it is so annoying.

The attached images are (1) the popup when I am using my mic in a tab, and (2) the popup when I am no longer using neither mic nor cam anywhere but the popup is still visible.

I can only remove the Firefox-icon-only popup by restarting Firefox!

How do I solve this? Is this a bug?

I was on the internet, things going fine, left for a couple minutes, when I came back had a blue screen. Nothing worked but the cursor. Turned computer off/on with power switch, restarted FF but my settings had been changed. Put them back to what I want except for the search bar. It is now beside the address bar not where I want it - below the address bar and all the way across the window. How do I get the search bar under the address bar? I have already looked through all of the Options and Customize, maybe I missed it, so be specific. Thank you, Bernadine

Bonjour,

Je rencontre un problème très curieux avec Firefox depuis plusieurs semaines. Uniquement avec la version PC et uniquement sur le site Linkedin.

Dès que j'ouvre Linkedin, c'est comme si la page était rafraichie plusieurs fois (3, 4, 5... ?) avant de se stabiliser.

Si j'ouvre des onglets supplémentaires (par exemple pour lire un post avant de revenir à mon fil d'actualité), les différentes onglets se rafraichissent également.

Cela ne se produit pas sur mon smartphone Android. Cela ne se produit pas non plus sur PC avec Chrome.

Merci de vos suggestions. De quels renseignements de configuration avez-vous besoin ?

This morning FF advised me to update to a newer version. I did and got 78.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Later I was deleting a program - winpdfeditor - in the Windows control panel and, at completion, suddenly got a message that Firefox was updating (again), but this time with a big bold warning - as I recall - that this version was not synched with anything. This new Firefox opened. My regular version, the one I'd updated this morning -- let's call it FF-1 -- was also open. In the second version (FF-2) I immediately checked under Tools > Options > Logins and Passwords, and the passwords section was empty. I closed FF-2. FF-1 is still open and still has all my passwords. I checked my Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles folder and now have two profiles - one called jn******.default, where I can see all my regular FF files, including logins.json, and one called i6******.default-release, with all files created today and no logins.json. Windows control panel also tells me I have two FFs, but identifies them as v78.01 and v72.02, and says both were installed today. I just checked about:profiles and get this: "Another copy of Firefox has made changes to profiles. You must restart Firefox before making more changes." What to do now? Obviously, I want to save the one with the passwords and delete the other one. But, as this situation is new to me, I want to do it the right way.

I realize that there was a section on how to disable this. but if i were to go to Yahoo for example and scroll down a page with a video in it. It starts to auto play and be in a little view on the side and becomes really annoying as i don't want it playing or coming up like that.

Is there a method to fully disable it from auto starting "wasting bandwidth" and from being on the side like that?
