So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

My thread "Firefox 76 beta "verify your identity to reveal the saved password" was deleted? Please explain.

I didn't get an answer of why my microsoft login info was not accepted, but I did discover that if you want to reveal the passwords saved by firefox 76, you must create a master password.

Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?

How do I get firefox portable to notify me of updates and download them to a USB flash drive instead of leaving files on other people's computers?

I am using Firefox as portable app, with --no-remote --profile "%profile_path%". I update it regularly, it's convenient for me to see notifications of new updates and install them whenever I see fit. I recently noticed that Firefox creates a folder on every computer C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates, which is not good for the portable version, really. The only way to stop this I found was to completely disable updates via distribution\policies. I don't want to. How do I get firefox to notify me of updates and download them to a USB flash drive (it will be perfect if i could specify folder for this purpose) instead of leaving files on other people's computers?

When Firefox apparently updated itself while I was away from my computer, all of my Bookmarks vanished. I did not authorize this act, and am upset since I have a LARGE number of Bookmarks on my P.C. Why did the latest Firefox update seem to wipe out all Bookmarks? How can I recover the ones I've always stored in the Firefox Web interface? Recovering these Bookmarks is essential. Thank you in advance.

I'm unable to download any file from google drive

1) https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&confirm=bnxT&id=1axnvq3lqCtw7zwoajbqefBC_QsZ2-RvO (Don't think that this file is big, that's why it isn't working, it is same with all files)

When i click this "Download Anyway" button, firefox just refreshes the tab and nothing happening. I'm using latest firefox version.(Even tested beta version)

I've tried other browsers like chrome, Edge, they are downloading the file perfectly when i click the button.

2) Another problem while downloading from google drive account

While right clicking a file and click "Download" Button, The file won't download. It is redirecting to this page showing "The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to doc-10-34-docs.googleusercontent.com.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

You may think that I've disabled my cookies. But no, I didn't.

Also working fine with Chrome.

I'm using addons : Adguard, Browsec VPN, I've uninstalled them both and tried. Still no hope.


I even cleared my whole data and tried, no hope Disabled Tracking protection, no hope Tried in private window, no hope

I've been facing the second problem from over 6 months. So i use "Get sharable link" option in drive to download files.

It was working fine 2 months before. But now, that's also not working.


Please help me

Version 62.0b3 (64-bit) (Mac)

To reproduce:

1. Go to a website that performs xhr reqs (i.e. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop) 2. CMD + SHIFT + I to open dev tools > Network Tab 3. Either right click on the xhr req and choose edit & resend or one left click then click edit and resend (as shown in screenshot).

PS: it works fine in FireFox; iow, it shows a window to modify req then resending it.

PSS: can you add a resent option (beside the edit & resend)?? Makes it a lot easier when debugging

There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.

I can no longer hear sound from Youtube videos. Vimeo.com still makes sound. So does Chrome on Youtube and media playback from my local sound files. I have tried restarting my computer and also restarting Firefox without add-ons. These did not help. The Youtube sound meter (in the bottom of videos) is set to max.
