Every time I shut down my computer, Firefox needs to download all over again when I power up my computer. I need to sign in and start the sync all over again. After I customize my bookmarks on Firefox, these do not remain stable once I power up the computer and open up the Firefox App again. It always seems like it's downloading the app for the first time. Syncing is a mess. Is there any way I can keep this application stable even after I shut off and power up the computer again?

I am having trouble getting the auto-complete function to work properly so I can just type the first few letters of a website I visited before.

I found the answer on the web. Here is what it said to do:

1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the browser.urlbar.autoFill preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to false, double-click it to restore the default value of true

I did this and noticed that "true" is already selected. The auto-complete function should be working but its not working. Do I need to discard the browser and re-install it again?

I even tried changing to false, and closing the browser, then opening it up again and changing it back to true but that didn't work.

The top part of the Firefox screen - containing bookmarks and the address bar etc - keeps disappearing and reappearing, and I have to scroll back to the top of the page to make it reappear again if I need it while I am browsing further down the page. I assume this is part of a recent upgrade. How do I turn this feature off? It's really distracting and frankly annoying, as well as pointless on a desktop computer with a 32" screen.

Since Firefox recently upgraded to version 93 when I click on a link on the page I am browsing, Firefox opens a new Tab instead of using the current Tab. Previously Firefox opened the link on the same page which is the way I like it. Unfortunately when looking through the settings page, I don't see a way to change this back. Can you explain to me how to accomplish this?

I have used Firefox for years to log in to Fifth Third Bank. The last several months it has worked intermittently. The last 2 weeks it won't work at all. I have done all of the suggestions in Firefox help. Deleted cookies, Reset, Refreshed, etc. No success. I am able to log in using Chrome. The bank tells me that when I am using Firefox they do not see me trying to log in. They can see me immediately when I use Chrome. I am getting an error message number that is not helpful and an IP address that indicates it is tied to Comcast in my hometown. Help! I don't want to use Chrome!

firefox doesn't work right on facebook and yahoo mail, while other browsers have no problem. It either operates extremely slowly or just doesn't function and freezes. On facebook many times areas show up blank and therefore non functional. Functions on yahoomail also at times just don't work. When I go to chrome or safari there is normal functioning. I did a refresh of firefox and it generally worked a bit faster but didn't improve the problems I just described. Also for your info I've spent a very very long time trying to find how to contact you. You really don't make it easy. I have been using firefox mainly for many years and prefer it to other browsers, but if it doesn't work properly are needed websites, then of course I will have to discontinue. I hope you can fix the problem. I have a macbook air, don't know how you can fix it if it's not a general problem. Hope you all do. Thanks. Samana Fisher

Greetings,

I just updated to Firefox 78.15.Oesr and now am unable to reorder my open windows. As a student, I may have several projects open at a given time, and like to have the project I am currently working on, next to the open Firefox window, for quick navigation between the browser and project. This option seems to have been disabled with the update. It is enough of a deal breaker that I may pursue reverting to the previous version of Firefox.

Also, the inability to delete bookmarks, and to close the bookmark window after selecting "show all bookmarks," remains a persistent frustration that I am surprised has not been addressed. With so many browser options available, these subtle annoyances are enough to prompt me to again shop around for alternatives, after being a Firefox devotee for over 10 years.

Thank you for your help, Josh Baker
