This add-on extension "Disconnect", after upgrading to Firefox 29 now displays only a tiny drop down box when clicked vs the full drop down menu. Before the upgrade it worked fine. It does this whether adding it to the tool icons in the upper right of the window (left of the new Firefox dropdown menu) or whether adding it to the Firefox menu itself as an additional icon. The extension appears to work in terms of blocking adds/tracking, as before, just can't see what is in the drop down menu. Already tried disabling and re-enabling, no change.

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

I have a number of Add-ons, and the icons on some of them take up a lot of room. So the navigation bar is crammed full. I added the Add-on bar that shows up at the bottom of the screen. However, I haven't figured out how to get the Add-on icons moved to the bar at the bottom. I'm sure it's something very simple but I haven't found the magic combination to do that yet.

I would appreciate any help/suggestions you can give me. Thanks for your help.

I don't know if it's relevant but I'm using two Toshiba laptops running Windows 7 and the other is Windows 10. Both are 64-bit. And it's is Firefox 42.0.

I have an extension called "Undo Close Tab" installed, it works well since one day the icon in the toolbar changes.

The first idea is the author changes the icon and Firefox automatically upgrade this extesion.

But no.

After some test I think Firefox seems to cache the wrong icon at some place.

I use Browser Toolbox to debug this element and find the icon data is inline, not refer to the resource inside the extension.

Also try to remove and reinstall the extension, or disable other extensions, but not helpful.

Even I modify the icon file name in manifest.json then repack the extionsion, install it with Firefox debugger, the icon on the toolbar is still unchanged.

I guess a refresh to Firefox may fix it but I don't want to do that because all the preferences will lost.

So is there a icon cache in Firefox? Is there another way to fix this?

Hello, I have the following issue:

I was watching some videos on youtube when the sound and picture started to stutter. It's like speed was constantly changing from x1 to x0.05 and back again. (It's not speed related) I closed firefox, then instantly got new update and the issue was not solved. It happens on every video but at random time. (The problem might occur at the start or in the middle of the video). What I did so far:

1. Updated my Nvidia Driver: did not helped

2. Checked the video in other browsers: It worked just fine.

3. Changed my Headsets from wireless BT to standard headphones: It did not helped.

4. Looked for similar issues on forums, but provided solutions did nothing.

5. Opened OBS to record the footage. Then it got interesting. It solved the problem. Opened OBS has fixed that issue.

But I don't want to use Firefox with opened OBS so pls help. Thank you for your time :)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay#firefox:win10:fx73 Does this include add-ons?

I have the "Anesidora" add-on to play music, but it stops after each song and I have to keep pressing play. I have the Autoplay settings in Firefox is set to "Block Audio and Video", but it never affected the Anesidora add-on before. Is there a way to create an exemption for add-ons? I don't want videos to automatically play on websites, but I want the Anesidora add-on to continuously play music (like it was working before), so I am guessing Firefox recently changed that? Is there a way to fix this?
