Hellow all

An unexpected firefox crash has completely ruined where I was before. I am completely bewildered over this one. I lost my bookmarks so I´ve selected toolbars and the bit regarding new folder but nothing happens. This step by step approach isn´t working and in no time a time out occurs. I cannot restore and opening a new tab all I get is an unstoppable wheel. It´s pretty hopeless.

Has anyone any ideas ? rich

Every time I see New Improved Firefox I groan as it means that what I am used to no longer functions.

Case in point click on FF open page and I have 3 search bars and trying to use just the Firefox will not allow any type to show up just in top two.

1. How do I eliminate the top two?? 2. How when typing can I get it to show up in the Firefox address bar as it has done for the past 12 years???????

The old saying if it aint broke do not fix it comes to mind!! Robin S.

When viewing a job on Indeed, whether on a pane or a separate tab, the application menu fails to load when I click 'Apply Now'. The connection times out after a while. It even takes an awful time to go back (reload) to the page!

When I reported this Indeed Support, they recommended using Google Chrome as their site "tends to work best on it". I can now confirm that the issue does not arise with Chrome.

I have tried pretty much everything on this page: Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

I even reinstalled Firefox but it is so smart, it realized the fact and prompted me to refresh and now we are back where we left off.

I have Firefox on a HP computer with windows 10 home. It is now starting to act up. Firefox will not open my gmail account or even let me search for Google to get to my emails that way. It will not open, not even the search result. Is something wrong with Firefox? Should I uninstall it? I get no error message.

I can't insert spaces to my text on Youtube search bar and comment section. The space bar acts as a media play pause button. The issue appears only on Firefox, I've tried Edge and the space bar behaves normally there on Youtube. Adds a space on text boxes and plays or pauses the video when the video box is selected. I know this might be a dumb solution but I have had way too much on my back the past week I just cannot deal with this now.

This border appeared recently (weeks?) around three sides of the Windows Firefox Desktop version. It is annoying. Does not respond to any recommended fixes I have found on the same issue. Tried safe mode. Tried moving the task bar. Tried changing enlargement percentage. Tried rebooting after all of the above. Nothing working. Can't find a switch anywhere.

Hello

Some days ago my Firefox automatically updated to version 80.0 and with that came an annoying white outline to my windows.

Whenever I full-screen my browser window there are white borders on the sides and bottom, a few millimetres wide. The only way to make them disappear is to scale the window down to about 50% of my screen resolution. This is especially annoying because I enjoy my dark themed Firefox. Below I have added a link to the image.

Safe Mode did not make it disappear, refreshing Firefox did not make it disappear, disabling extensions did not make it disappear. Any help is welcome.

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

Firefox blocks a bank account. Bank says it is not their fault. Bank account can be accessed using a different browser. Bank account can also be accessed using Firefox on another computer. Tried to refresh Firefox and gained access to the bank account but it worked only once or twice before Firefox went back to blocking it.
