I have a 29 monitor and I cannot work with the new view. When I try to zoom out, only the text gets smaller, and the picture keep their sizes and that is not good. The only thing to get more infos at once is to reduce to one sixth of the size of the screen!

For example: The google page doesn't show the row for the settings under the text box. Facebook has a look like in my smartphone, the pics are so huge, they are over the whole screen. So mostly I have only one or two threads at once on the screen. I like when I have a few more at once on it.

My bookmarks have disappeared. The error messsage I get is that some other program is using the file. When I asked the system to restore the bookmarks, I got an error message that the backup file could not be processed. As an experiment, I have tried to add new bookmarks and I can't seem to get Firefox to do that.

Any advice?

I'm on Windows 10 but still use Windows Live Mail. I used to be able to click the "Email Link" icon on my Firefox toolbar to automatically mail the current URL to someone using Live Mail. I can go into Options>Applications>mailto and link it to xlmail.exe but I can't add the argument "/mailurl:%" to the end of the command line so that it properly constructs an email message. This used to work - does anybody have a suggestion (other than finally abandoning Live Mail or Firefox)?

Thanks.

Why is the 78.0.1 download for MacOS called "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg" and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg"?

The download dialogue (image attached) that appeared said that it wanted to download "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg". The "esr" in the filename surprised me, as I'm not on any ESR release train. Why is it named that and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg", similar to its predecessors?

Hi,

I cannot find the way to remove the Adblock Plus extension for the life of me. It says "Can't be removed". I re-started in Safe-Mode, and it still cannot be removed. I did Firefox's "fresh re-install" thing, which is supposed to remove all extensions, and it's still there. Should I report the extension? Help.

Thanks

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.

Hi all, I just got a new laptop and am trying to get FF the way I like it. This new laptop is W10, and the FF version is 78.0.1.

My old laptop (W7) also has FF 78.0.1.

I created a Chrome folder and a userChrome.css file in my new computer. I copied and pasted the "tabs on bottom" code I have been using on my W7 computer into the new file on my new computer and it is not working.

I have looked all over the web for several hours now and have tried several different versions of the code, tried turning the "legacy toolkit" line (in about:config) on and off and nothing has worked. I also can't find any information on why this code would work in W7 but not W10.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Hi,

I am developing a WYSIWYG site through Adobe Portfolio. When viewed in the editor, image elements are in the correct position.

However, when viewed in FF, they are a long way out of position. In Chrome and Edge, they are much better, but still out by a small amount.

Please see attached screen dumps.

Any ideas? I suspect it is a combination of coding generated by the editor and the way FF interprets the code.

Regards,

Steve
