I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.

Lately, "Sign in with Google" popups have been occurring on MANY websites including sites like Overstock, Ebay, and others. I hate google and in no way would I EVER give them my logins and passwords. So why is firefox throwing that popup on my websites? How do I block it? Have you gone over to the dark side and are you now using the Chromium browser????

Hi! I use excel in the firefox browser and I realized that the zoom in/out feature that is usually at the bottom right corner of the browser is not there. I can use the default zoom in/out with command +/- (mac) that's built into the browser but that zooms all other screens as well and doesn't exactly give me what I'm looking for. I've checked all settings in excel and I'm not seeing anything. In chrome the zoom is right where it's supposed to be so I'm wondering if this is broken or missed? I've attached a side by side screenshot to compare.

Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

I use a MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and I've gotten the dreaded "Firefox is already open" message. Firefox isn't my primary browser but I do have tabs and bookmarks saved there. This has happened before, and last time I ended up following advice to delete my profile which wiped out my entire account (it was the only profile there, and I should have looked for an alternate solution because that clearly wasn't it).

I was very interested in switching from Chrome to Firefox permanently, but I'll be honest, I'm pretty frustrated that this keeps happening and putting my tabs/bookmarks/history/etc in jeopardy. If someone could provide a straightforward explanation as to how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Btw, I already tried viewing FireFox in the activity monitor as I saw another site suggest and it wouldn't let me quit it (I saw it greyed out).

When I go into the Settings tab, I see a message at the top of the page that says "Your browser is managed by your organization". This is a private laptop so there should not be any organization managing my browser.

I have searched for help articles to try and solve this problem myself. They all recommend editing a key in the Windows registry, specifically HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox . However, this registry folder does not exist in my laptop. Who is managing my browser? How can I stop them?

I'm running 64 bit Win 11 Pro Version 21H2 OS Build 22000.1219 and Firefox 107.0, and the first time I click to open Firefox, I receive message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item". If I clear the error box and click again, Firefox comes up normally. This happens every time I bring up Firefox. It's not a show-stopper, but very annoying.

Thanks for your help Mike Harmon [email removed from public]

Hi... I have just updated my Firefox browser to 107.0.1 (64 Bit) and i now find i have this box Developer Tool Error at the bottom of the page just above the taskbar. I also have a transparent red film comes over the whole screen. The screen also jumps when trying to do a search on the website. If i try this on Opera ,MS Explorer or Edge this does not happen. I have deleted the whole Fire Fox program and reinstalled it but no difference. Please understand i am a senior and my knowledge is limited so i hope this info is enough. Thank you in-advance. Regards Al Pooley.

I use Yahoo mail with Firefox browser. When I log into my mail the time is wrong on incoming mail. I have the correct system time on my computer. If I log into Yahoo from another web browser such as Google Chrome, the time is correct and in sync with my computer system time. I contacted Yahoo support and they could not fix the problem. They told me the problem was with Firefox's browser.

Firefox with Voice Over on Mac OS

I'm using Firefox on a Mac with the built-in screen reader Voice Over. When I need to log in to a web page, with a User Name & password stored in Apple's Key Chain utility, I typically press Command-Shift-A & the User name & Password fields are automatically populated. Unfortunately, with my new installation of Firefox, I've found that the key combination in question is used to launch the "Add Ons" window. Is there a work-around for this? The Command-Shift-A is the only way that a blind user can populate those fields from Key Chain. The buttons, usually visible in or around those fields for a sighted user are inaccessible.

Thanks so much,

CJ
