Every time Firefox updates it breaks my computer. Previously, an update wreaked havoc with my High Contrast setting. The last update prevented me from adding photos to my emails. Today's update broke my WordPress blog. I can't add links to my blog posts. High Contrast issues seem to have been solved, but I still can't add photos to my emails, and now the blog is broken. I've had to do most of my work on Chrome and Edge. Why do you keep fixing things that aren't broken? No other browser is as aggravating as Firefox!

How do we disable the new URL bar in 77.01? The fix for 75.01 no longer works

The pop-out, mandatory search address bar is crap and everyone hates it, as witnessed by how many people immediately came to ask how to disable it when it was forced on us with 75.01, but the about:config fix of toggling browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus, browser.urlbar.update1, browser.urlbar.update1.interventions, and browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips to false no longer returns the address bar to the way everyone wants it, which is to have a dropdown list of the most recently visited sites.

I don't care what company is paying Mozilla under the table to gain access to users' search terms-- it's Google, Google is paying them for that access-- and I don't care how badly Mozilla needs the money. Turning the address bar into a search box is crapulous browser design, full stop, and I'm uninstalling 77.01 and never updating this browser again if it doesn't get fixed.

Why is my internet speed so slow in Firefox? Is there anything I can do to speed it up? My speed is 110Mbps faster in Google Chrome. That is doing numerous speed tests on both browsers. I have no extensions or addons running. I have the latest version. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Every since i installed the win 10 2004 build, my computers will hang up when i try to open Firefox. The CPU goes to 100 percent and the power level goes to very high. This happens immediately or sometimes within an hour. It tries to open but only gets a white screen and a not responding message in the title bar. I have to reboot the PC's to get them to work. If i don't open Firefox they will work. I have two other computers and the same thing happens on them. I have had to roll back to my last win 10 build 1909 on all three PC's. Anybody else having this problem? Thanks for any suggestions you have

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit). When I type in the address bar, the bar expands in a way that's visually jarring. I just want it to stay the same size, which was the default behavior until recently.

After a previous update, I was able to revert to the old address bar by using the instructions here: https://www.ghacks.net/2020/04/08/how-to-restore-the-old-firefox-address-bar/

I did the about:config stuff and that worked fine. But with the newest update (77), the about:config stuff no longer seems to have any effect. Even the alternate userChrome.css method has no effect.

What should I do?

I'm using Firefox 77.0 (32bit) as my default browser with Windows 7 My problem today is that I am unable to login at this service: http://iptv-north-west.com/webplayer/ ...although I have been able to login there previously with Firefox and I can still login there today using various other browsers (specifically Opera and a browser that arrived uninvited from Avast that I haven't bothered uninstalling yet). I can also login on an old Windows XP PC using an elderly Firefox there. It's annoying to see all these other browsers working as usual - but not my up-to-date Firefox 77.0 - which is my longstanding browser of choice.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.
