Firefox icon disappears when I shut down computer

I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob

I have my plugins synced through Firefox Sync. For development I'm using Firefox Developer Edition (FDE).

There are times I do not want to have all plugins en-/disabled in all browser. e.g. I don't need a form filler plugin all the time in my regular FF instance. But I mostly need it all day in the FDE instance.

Problem starts by disabling a plugin in the regular FF instance. Because this disables the plugin through sync in all other instances.

I'm looking for s possibility to disable plugins "locally". So only disable it for the currently running FF instance, and not propagate the state through sync.

A separate "DEV profile" might help, but I don't want to deal with sep. profiles, as the tabs would be synced in this different profile for example.

I can imagine that this is kind of an edge case scenario. But maybe somebody knows a way around this.

I've installed firefox on my new mac to match my desktop pc a little better. It works smoothly on desktop, but on this mac it seems to be nothing but trouble. Every time I reset my macbook I have to login to firefox manually, and then I'm faced with all my top sites missing. It's been mitigated slightly by adding bookmarks to my highlights page, but I'd still like to not login every time I reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm have Private Browsing set to delete all cookies and data after closing a session but I would like to allow certain website to keep certain cookies and keep my session open.

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.

Firefox has been my default browser forever but suddenly has started glitching! It will work for about 10 minutes but then the glitch happens and all of the top of the screen loses its text and turns into black/white color boxes that looks pixelated and the whole program freezes. In the picture posted, the glitching continues down the right side of the screen too. If I quit Firefox, it starts up fine again (with all browsing tabs lost) but then the error will occur again in a short while.

How can I hide the full address of the website like I can in Safari? Like, in Firefox, the full address of the website is always visible, unlike in Safari, you can hide the full address of the site in the address bar. e. g. Google Earth is https://earth.google.com, right? In Safari, what you would see by default until you clicked the address bar; google.com. the reason, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.17%20PM.png]

In Safari, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%203.59.41%20PM.png Google Earth on Safari]

In Firefox, [[file:///Users/DavidZhao/Desktop/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202020-06-05%20at%204.03.59%20PM.png Google Earth on Firefox]

Just in case the file links don't work, uploaded images below (in order)...

But then, if this feature doesn't exist, at least add this feature

I am running the latest FireFox (77.0.1) on Mac OS 10.15.4. Occasionally when I return to a tab that I see

[object Window]

This seems to happen most frequently for Google apps (e.g. gmail) but I have seen it for other pages. I have seen this when all extensions are turned off.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

After upgrading to Firefox 77, I have trouble reaching internal websites the way I used to. My company uses a custom internal top level domain for internal services, let's call it `mytld`. If I enter a domain such as `webservice.mytld` in the address bar, I end up in search results on Google. Previously, I would end up on https://webservice.mytld/ as expected.

I have found a partial solution with the setting `browser.fixup.domainwhitelist.webservice.mytld`. The issue I have with that solution is that I have to configure every single service that way. I would rather have a solution where I can educate Firefox to understand that `mytld` is a valid TLD for me.
