I have added photos to my top sites on Firefox, but everytime I close my browser the images go away and cannot be added again unless I reset Firefox. (The images for the default top sites are still available though.) How do I fix this?

I don't want to have to reconfigure my settings every time the pictures are gone. It seems silly but it just looks wrong to me and I like seeing the pictures so that I know at a glance which top site is which. How can I fix this problem of my browser not displaying the images in the top sites correctly after closing the browser? Thank you!

Up until today, my address bar had a down arrow that I could click to open the menu and select the sites I wanted. Now it's different. Now there is no down arrow and when I click on the address bar it opens a menu with a bunch of different sites that never were in there before. In fact they're the first ten of my new tab sites, which DO NOT belong in my drop down menu, and I can't delete them from the menu. I want this back the way it was.

Firefox v69.0 Whenever I click on one of the matches returned from a search, or click on an embedded link, Firefox forever highlights that selection even though I don't want to be reminded months later that I had looked at that site. This is irksome because I can't ever get a clean slate for doing searches. Every similar search will yield a page full of highlighted links I may have used in the past on a topic that is only tangentially related. Also, since this highlighting persists independently of clearing history it entails a severe privacy leak. If anybody who is authorized to use my machine suspects that I may have an interest in, say, pizza dough, they need only do a search for pizza dough on my machine and any link I had ever selected in the past is highlighted, from which links it can be easily determined that I have both an interest in the topic at large and what aspect of the topic in particular appeals to me.

How do I disable this "feature", please?

Maybe this question has been questioned in the past but I cannot find anything so here I am. Is it possible to move the #window-controls(minimize/maximize/close buttons) to #nav-bar? I created a custom css that moved the nav-bar on top of the tabbar but the window-controls are in the tab-bar and it doesn't look good. I'm at my wits end on this one, so is it possible and how? See attached image for reference. Thanks!

FireFox ESR 68.11.0 - 64bit Windows 8.1

Start typing a URL in the address bar ... a search bar drops down automatically and begins searching. What is the real fix for this annoying and insecure behavior?

There are dozens if not hundreds of search posts on this topic, most are specific to a particular version of FireFox. Developers, I shudder every time I update the program because I know I will be spending hours or days on a new configuration. Apparently, developers have cleverly eliminated the settings that disable this feature.

This drop-down search bar is annoying and unnecessary. A child might find it useful. Simply put, the user should be able to turn it on or off in the "Options" section. We don't like playing with your about.config settings, or adding code. If I type an address in the URL bar, I do not want the URL searched arbitrarily. Nor do I want to see a new pop-up bar. Please make the use of these "features" optional.

Please create a new general information topic "Removing the automatic URL search" and put this topic to rest once and for all. This is an excellent argument for a paid version of FireFox. I would gladly pay for a clean program rather than waste my time tweaking every single new version.

Thank you!

Tab session manager: not possible to reload tabs from previous session

Hello experts, I have a problem: I had a session window open with 116 tabs open and I cannot re-open them after restert of FireFox. I use the newest Firefox version 79.0 (64-Bit) on Windows 7 Pro SP1 and the extension "Tab Session Manager" I closed FireFay and as usual, after I restartef it, I waited for the opening of the series of my previous opened tabs. FireFax opened 117 tbs but did not fill in the URLs. They were all opened as new tabs. So I tried to open FireFox with deactivated add-ons. There it was possible to restore all the tabs. After that I closed FireFox again and opened it the usual way. It opened 116 tabs but they were all empty. I used the Add-on manager to shut down my extensions leaving only the tab session manager, AdblockPlus, NoScript. After restarting te tabs were empty again. In the list of the tab session manager I could find the sessions with 116 empty tabs (see ErrorTabSessionManager0.gif) but also the last session with the original tabs. See image ErrorTabSessionManager1.gif. I could even save this list from TabSessionManager. I updated PabSessionmanager to the newest version but that did not help. How can I get FireFox to load these previous tabs again, some of them are very important for me ? thanks for any help Jochen

Hi,

I have been using the new feature of "generate new secure password" integrated in Firefox Developer Edition, I just realized It always generates the same password on the same website, doesn't change not even a character. Also there is no option to configure the password strength, character limit, number, letter, signs, etc.

Prior to installing Catalina all pages would automatically open in full screen view, including my home page on start up. Since installing Catalina this no longer happens. Every time I open Firefox, I now have to go to the menu and manually select full screen view. Once I do this, all new pages then open in full screen view for the remainder of that session, but once I finish each session and close down Firefox, the same thing occurs next time I open it and commence a new session. In other words, there no longer seems to be a setting in Preferences to make this change permanent and avoid the need to have to manually select full screen view at the beginning of every new session.

If I want to attach an image to a document or such using Firefox, a window opens allowing me to select the image or document but these use a nearly microscopic thumbnail that's impossible to see. To ensure I'm picking the right image, I have to open a file manager window simultaneously (which has icons/thumbnails large enough to be useable) and then find the filename of the image I want. Only by matching the filenames will I know I've got the right image. It's very cumbersome and I would love to know how to force Firefox to use the system defaults for icon sizes and thumbnails. I'm on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04LTS) using Firefox 79.0 64-bit.

Thank you for any help.
