After update to Firefox 113, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is no full size anymore.

Before update to Firefox 113 (version 112 or older), the width size is still normal: full size; like search-engine-textbox on Toolbar.

  • 5 screenshot:

[1]: Firefox 113, about version, link image: 1-About-version

[2]: Firefox 113, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Toolbar is full size, link image: 2-Search engine textbox - on toolbar - full width

[3]: Firefox 113, customize mode, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is now full size, link image: 3-Search engine textbox - on overflow menu - customize mode - full width

[4]: Firefox 113, after customize, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is no full size anymore. The width is so narrow, link image: 4-Search engine textbox - on overflow menu - after customize - narrow width

[5]: Firefox before 113, screenshot of another post (2022-may-04), the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is now still normal: full size.

Please review and restore the width setting, same as version 112 and earlier.

Thanks and best regards!

I'm now running in troubleshooting mode with NO extensions.

For weeks my drives have been churning and I've been running out of resource, seeing the hour glass, graying screen, etc.

I finally closed the windows with countless tabs, disabled some extensions, and it got better, but I still have problems, even in troubleshooting mode.

Task manager still shows phantom tabs. I had 4 tabs open, it showed 7, etc.

And strangely, I now see Kaperski Native Messaging with the tabs in task manager: https://www.file.net/process/plugin-nm-server.exe.html

Closed that. Have 7 tabs in one window, task manager shows 11 tabs.

Am so confused.

How do I block the 'You are seeing this message because ad or script blocking software is interfering with this page. Disable any ad or script blocking software, then reload this page.' ?

I have been using ublock origin add-on for years without any issues. For the past few weeks, pop up videos as well as above alert message appears on several news sites. Is this a glitch with the add-on or firefox browser issues?

Many thanks!

Block autoplay not working on 112.0.2. I've tried going into about:config and changing settings. Doesn't help. Also under "Settings \ Permissions \ Autoplay" shows default for all websites as "Block Audio and Video" and under Websites "About:Welcome" shows as "Allow audio and video." I've changed the About:Welcome to block audio and video. I've also tried clicking the Remove All Websites button to delete the exception. Neither works. I save changes, exit Firefox, and restart. Same settings as before, and autoplay still starts.

For several years now Firefox keeps the methodology to update in the background and then force the user to restart.

This always causes some loss.

There are multiple situations where this is not acceptable. Just to give one example: I just logged in an account and clicked to receive an authentication SMS. But then Firefox forced restart and I cannot login nor ask for a new SMS because the previous request was recent.

In my opinion this makes absolutely no sense. Is there an option the turn off this forced restart?

Hello Firefox,

Thanks for reading my troubleshooting question. When using the Firefox browser (my favorite by far) I cannot upload low res (500x500 pixel) Jpeg photos onto my Squarespace website. I called Squarespace and they ran tests including uploading my photos successfully. Squarespace recommended I clear Firefox cache and history. Still no good. I then ran a Firefox refresh. No good. Finally I temporarily booted the God forsaken Microsft Edge browser and My Squarespace website worked just fine. Uploaded Jpeg files successfully.

I really dont want to be stuck with Microsoft Edge. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

At some point every night, my Firefox (and only Firefox) reverts to version 111 from the latest version. This happens on 2 different Windows 11 machines.

I can only get Firefox to run again by running from command prompt with "-allow-downgrade" option and then updating again.

I usually don't notice until I launch Firefox the following morning and it gives me a message that the profile was created with an older version and to exit or create a new profile.

I've had Firefox open and then it reverts and it gives me a XULRunner error about the profile being used by an older version.

I don't have any special backup or restore software running and the physical files in my Firefox folder in c:\program files\mozilla firefox are being physically pushed to a prior version dated 3/21/2023.

On both machines, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled and it's good for a day and then reverts.

No log entries for the reversion can be found. It's just back to a prior version.

I've never come across anything like this before and have scanned for any malware or other issue, but haven't found anything.

I'm currently running Firefox v 112.0.2 on Linux. I've had a theme installed for a while now that I really enjoy. It's a minimalist theme I found on github and then I topped it off with some colors that suite my desktop theme.

The ONLY issue I am having is with the dropdown menus. I can't see any of the list items and I cannot for the life of me figure out where to modify these colors. Searching has only gotten me more confused.

Photo is attached. I'm hoping that changing the text color here is an easy fix. The colors are all fine in other dropdown-ish menus, like bookmark folders for example.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

When I run the Divi Builder on the agencia221b.com site, it crashes firefox.

The testes I've made so far: If i run divi builder from other sites in the same hosting, it crashes firefox. If i run divi builder from those sites in incognito mode, everything runs normally. If i run divi builder from those sites in firefox troubleshooting mode, it crashes firefox. If i run divi builder from those sites with all extensions disabled, it crashes firefox. If i run divi builder from other sites in other hosting, all runs normally. If i run divi builder from those sites in chrome, in or out of incognito mode, everything runs normally.

This problem started some weeks ago with one site, after instaling a wordpress plugin. Now, other sites in the same hosting begin to have the same problem.

It only happens with firefox, always. It doenst happens with other browsers, never.

Please, can someone help?

How to maximize video without Firefox going into F11 (full screen mode)?

This is a relatively recent but extremely annoying problem that i have been having with Firefox on Windows PC, perhaps in the past few months or so.

When on youtube i click the maximize video button (the button next to the theater mode button) the video will normally maximize over the entire screen.

However it seems the entire Firefox browser also automatically goes into F11 (full screen mode) which is something that i extremely do NOT want.

Aside from the annoyance of the mouse-wheel-scroll being able to move the maximized video up & down, through some combination of alt-tab or windowskey+D the Firefox will sometimes exit the maximized video (to normal size) but Firefox itself will still stay in "F11 mode" - forcing me to manually exit Full Screen Mode by pressing F11.

As someone who has never used F11 mode (especially because i find the Menu Bar toolbar mandatory) its very disruptive to the general use/workflow to sometimes randomly get Firefox stuck in F11 mode, especially because i have at no point requested nor desired for the entire Firefox browser to enter F11 mode.

In other words please let me maximize videos (such as those on youtube) without Firefox going into F11 mode. I never want Firefox to go into F11 mode unless i manually press the F11 button.
