I'm using Windows 10 and just updated to Firefox 78.0.1 last night. Normally, when I open a new tab, I push the down arrow key to bring up my browser history and access my most-used sites. Upon updating last night, I discovered that I can no longer do this. When I press the down key, nothing happens. To get the same result I'm used to, I have to press the space bar, but I've been doing this a certain way for several years and the motion is completely ingrained in me. If I turn Top Sites back on in the options, the drop-down list will open upon pressing the down key, but that of course only brings up the Top Sites. That's not what I want. I tried rolling back to the previous version, 77.0.1, but that didn't fix anything. If I create a new profile, the problem persists. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know it sounds like an extremely minor issue, and maybe that's true, but I just want to use my browser the way I like using it. I'd appreciate any help/input.

Also, I suppose I should mention that I didn't make any changes to my preferences prior to this issue.

I have firefox 78.0.1 64b on windows 10 installed I have teams of MS installed if you go the website of teams called by meeting invite - there is a possibility to start the teams standalone application. when requesting this in FF, it does not start teams - on the page is also indicated that FF is not supported for teams. if I do this in edge (I never use edge - just for test) this opens the appl is there a setting that would prevent this ? can we configure this to allow starting an appl ? thanks for all update/help best regards, Guy

If I use autoplay, Firefox crashes, I shut autoplay off and can't play any video clips on any sites...CATCH22

I have auto update and installation checked. I have very few sites where ABP allows ads. I have Bitdefender for antivirus. I have reset Firefox at least 5 times this past 6 weeks. This has gotten old. I have tried starting without the Add-ons, but what's the sense of having Add-ons available then? If I try to use Firefox with the autoplay feature for videos on sites like NFL.com or NASCAR.com, Firefox will in short time crash (Firefox is not responding), ..usually when I have more than 2 tabs open, but has done it with a singular tab open. As a matter of fact, it will sometimes crash before loading the page. If I use FIrefox with autoplay disabled, I can't even prompt the video to play. It doesn't even show up in the play section when prompted. So what's the sense of that? After resetting Firefox, I fail to understand why in the most viewed panel, why my most viewed aren't there after each reset? Also, why doesn't it populate my most viewed consistently? That being, if I go to the same sites all the time, why don't they show as most viewed? I get sites showing up I've only been to once in a month, instead of multiple times in a day. My final thing...why does Edge keep prompting me to install it while using Firefox? I have Edge already installed when Firefox crashes and it has a fresh install from just 2 weeks ago. But I still get these annoying notifications. I know this is long, but this is what happens when you try diligently to do as the instructions show in the Help section multiple times...only to come to the same conclusion. Can someone please help?

Firefox doesn't respect screen edge in Windows 10

This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

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

Hello. I restarted my laptop today. I tried to sign in to Hotmail/Outlook using Firefox and I can't. Note that ALL the other browsers are able to log in my account. I reinstalled Firefox many times (it is updated). I also refresh Firefox. I also clear cookies and cache. I also used safe mode (still nothing)- safe mode had this problem a couple days ago but both safe mode and not safe mode today. I contacted Microsoft tech support, we did remote help, we did clean boot to prevent any third party services but nothing. I also have that 'strange" in log in (not the one i always had"

Maybe is the new firefox. I have no problem using other sites on firefox though (ex. facebook. instagram)

I'm using Firefox since 6 years and I don't see a shortcuts customize page.

I love you're app and I can't tell myself that you haven't turned on this feature.

SO WHERE IS SHE ???

(I do this post because I add the extension "Multi Account Container" and they add the shortcut CMD SHIFT + to open new Personal Container. But I use CMD SHIFT + to zoom on my window, so when I want zoom he open new tab.)

Thanks you

E.g.: I would like Netflix (and other websites that use Widevine) to always use their own container for privacy reasons.

Firefox 78.0.2. In the address bar, when it is opened, there are addresses in the list of suggested addresses that I need to delete. Previously, I could just hover over a tab, press the delete key, and the corresponding address will be deleted. But since some time everything has changed and now nothing can be done there. I looked at the Firefox FAQ and found that you need to delete such addresses using shift+delete, but this also does not work. I've been trying to do this all day, but I can't do it. How do I do this? Why do such simple things cause such difficulties now? It used to be a very convenient browser.
