When I type in an address in the search bar Firefox intermittently serves up a blank page and attempts to download the page as a file. This only seems to happen when I omit typing in www. in an address and doesn't seem to happen when the address is in my recent history and Firefox autocompletes it.

My internet connection is fine and this is not happening in other browsers.

I opened up firefox this morning to see the new tab page...empty? I soon realize the bookmarks toolbar has DISAPPEARED completely. My firefox got update to v72 last night so I think that may have something to do with it.

The list of what I've tried:

-Make sure it's there by going "restore defaults" in the customization tab.

-Making sure it's turned on (as you can see in the attached picture).

-Restarting firefox in safe mode.

-Restarting firefox with a new profile.

-Even restarting my computer just in case it has something to do with it.

I was just updated to 72.0.1

Then, when I tried to login to roboform I was told I had to update. I did that (now have 8.2.2 (64-bit) Same problem, I am told I must upgrade (already did that). The update itself was interesting. I had to delete the addon from firefox and then restart firefox before I was able to download that latest roboform

Thoughts?

I want to turn off dark mode (Firefox ver. 72.0.12 windows10). you say that I have to do the following:

Type about:config into the address bar, press Enter and accept the warning. Now right click on any entry > New > Integer, and enter ui.systemUsesDarkTheme > OK, then in the next box, enter 0 (that's a zero) > OK.

Problem is that after accepting the warning I only can choose <Show All> and then I get a list of settings.

But on none of the lines / entries I van click rightSo I cant insert a new entry as requested.

Please advice.

so i had a rage moment and started going ham on my keyboard, and my bookmarks before that did this thing that when they were too long it said, for example, one of the bookmarks was named GitHub - notejs/node:gyp etc.: welllll... my bookmarks before the rage moment had it to say GitHub - node... and it was so much more easier because all of them did that! now though it lets me make the bookmark bar longer but it doesn't fix it. i did though notice if i turn off the upper bookmark bar (the one with the icons below the search bar) this problem is fixed, as it shortens the name of the bookmarks. i did have it on before my rage moment though so i wish this thing it had (shortening them with ...) wouldn't go away WITH the top bookmark bar on. plz help? i did search it up and can't find anything similiar to my problem, it was never like this. i'm considering reinstalling.

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

Weird thing that just recently started happening to me; I usually have audacity as my default program to open downloaded mp3 files from firefox, but it's been giving me trouble. Whenever I try to open up the file, audacity gives me numerous error messages, each error message is that audacity is looking in my System32 folder for a file corresponding to each letter in the filename of what i downloaded (ex: E.mp3, X.mp3, A.mp3, M.mp3, P.mp3, L.mp3, E.mp3.) Opening the files up in AIMP works fine. Opening the files in audacity from the folder works fine too.

Running on windows 10, firefox version 72.

Update to FF72.01 Running userChrome to keep Tabs on bottom

1...Tabs appear larger and the text for the titles is sitting below the page 2...Close Tab X appears right after any text, 3...if Multiple tabs open, Close Tab X doesn't appear on some Tabs as well as Titles

Should be a quick fix right?, with the amount of people wanting tabs on bottom, a simple check box should be made available to do this, if the user wants

I adjusted the userChrome.css as per some of the answers posed to similar questions, but no change present
