i have tried every about:config option there is on google and i still can't disable the expanding URL bar (where once you've entered a asearch, heading back to the bar expands a menu on the right side with a privacy icon, a drop down menu, a pocket icon, and the bookmark icon). very irritating.

i have seen options regarding the userChrome file but i'm inexperienced and probably messing something up.

any help would be much appreciated.

My Firefox privacy preferences tell me that "stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 1.0 GB of disk space", but when I click on "Manage Data", no sites are listed. I have also always had the "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checked. What then explains the 1.0 GB of disk space?

Thanks.

Hello

I'd like to ask you to help me disable a keyboard shortcut. I have CoolerMaster masterkeys keyboard and it has Play/Pause key that can be used by clicking Fn + Insert. Before the last update the function worked as it should - when I was listening to music using either Spotify or Foobar and used the play/pause key, it only had effect on those applications (even though I had Firefox open).

Now, since last update, the shortcut also has effect on Firefox - for example I'm listening to music with Foobar and have a Youtube tab in Firefox with a video stopped and when I use the shortcut - play/pause is done on both of the applications - Foobar and Firefox. It is really annoying and unwanted behavior.

I'm not sure if it has something to do with Firefox. But maybe there is some kind of configuration that can be applied to mitigate this behavior?

I'm using Windows 10, just so you know.

Thank you,

When signing in to Spotify, Firefox asked me if I wanted to log in using info from my Chrome browser. I use them separately as Firefox is personal and Chrome is for school. After doing this I accepted a few popups that I didn't read (because I'm stupid) and now all my Firefox bookmarks are gone and have been replaced with bookmarks that I have on Chrome. This is a massive inconvenience as I need the bookmarks I have lost. I'm also concerned about what else has changed. I went into settings to try and figure out if I could find anything there but I didn't except for turning off sync, but I'm pretty sure that's only for Firefox internally. If there is any way to end whatever the linkup is between Chrome and Firefox and recover my old bookmarks (and whatever else may have changed)?

I use Firefox as my default browser and I pay my bills on-line but it seems over the last year that more and more financial sites do not work at all or some parts do not work on Firefox. They work fine in Chrome!

Is this some kind of conspiracy to force people to use Chrome or Edge?

I have a customers dead laptop, she wants her firefox profile copied to her new laptop.

Since the laptop is dead, I can't use sync. I have her profile data, which is useless in her new laptop.

For future reference, how am I supposed to do this? I've always kept as many customers as I can on firefox.

Is there a conversion tool? A way around this? Or am I just going to have to say shes out of luck?

I saw under 'what's new' a item about media controls. Unfortunately for me, it is full of jargon, initials, and not much in the way of plain English. As an unsophisticated user, I can not understand the explanation. Is there some source of clear explanation of what it does and how it does it, and what you might have to do to use it or not?

This week Facebook decided to stop working properly on Firefox. The image below shows what happens on first attempting to run Facebook after the computer starts. It will hang like that indefinitely. If I close the Firefox tab and run Facebook again it will work. Why does closing the tab or browser make it work on the 2nd attempt? Please note: This not a cache cookies issue, it happens regardless of whether I've run Ccleaner or not. That is the question. A real world analogy would be something like this... I open a porch door then open the front door but the front door won't open. I close the porch door, open it again, then the front door opens. Do you see what I mean. Nothing has changed except opening the porch door a second time which has no physical impact on the front door. I'm probably not describing that well, it's as if doing an unrelated thing a second time makes something work. I've started to use Chrome for Facebook now, I'm fed up of Firefoxes problems lately. Another problem I'm having is a strange Youtube anomaly: https://support.google.com/youtube/thread/77200164?hl=en Particularly annoying. Thanks for any help.

Hello.

I configured Firefox so that whenever I close the browser only the Browsing & Download History and Form & Search History to be deleted, so that I don't have to login on every relevant website (facebook, youtube, mail, etc.) It was working fine until a few days (~1 week ago) when it started logging me out of some websites randomly and I basically have to login again. I basically close the computer and the next day I find myself logged out of some websites.

Did this happen to anyone else?

I am attempting to reinstall firefox. Old one screwed up and I eventually uninstalled it. Ran revo uninstaller, turned off firewall and antivirus, wifi connected. Started Firefox Installer as Administrator. Firefox Installer window appears on Desktop. The interior of the window is completely blank, all white. Wait. Nothing happens. Click on it, get Not Responding message at top of window. As far as I can tell the Installer did nothing but open the window. Repeat downloads of the Installer did the same thing. Help?
