I'm using Firefox 68.0.1 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5. When I go full screen, the tabs and address bar remain at the top of the screen. I can't make them go away. I've tried:

- Installing plugins (I tried a couple) - Disabling Add-ons (Safe mode) - Resetting Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration (and restart browser) - Using different techniques to go full screen (Cmd+Shift+F, Cmd+Ctrl+F, Zoom menu) - Scrolling or clicking in the canvas to ensure focus

No matter what, the tab bar and address bar remain on the screen (see attached screenshot). I've also attached my browser config (filtered on "full"). Is there any way to get a full-screen experience in Firefox?

So we made the big mistake when we originally decided to ban the comment section of the internet, which gives users the ability to comment and promote free and open dialogue. We removed it after claims it could be used, like Firefox, for posting hate speech (which does not exist according to the supreme court), however we see no banning of Mozilla's Firefox or Cisco's Webex web and video conferencing addon which can be used spread this non existent activity. Banning Dissenter is akin to banning the wheel because criminals might use it to escape from a crime scene, or banning socks because people wear them while saying hateful things. Censorship and control is the obvious agenda.

The censorship of dissenter by Mozilla is one of the greatest attacks against the internet and online freedom we have seen, one I will not stand by and let you get away with. Its time to bring dissenter back... the question is, what are you going to do about it?

Basically I have Never Remember History enabled, and each time I open FF there's data in 'Cookies and Site Data'. Under 'Cookies and Site Data' it will say there's a bit of data (in the photo is says 16Kb, which is pretty typical). If I look under 'manage cookies and site data' there will be nothing there. Sometimes the cookies or cache or whatever is bigger if the last time I used that profile I was watching videos, at most it will be a couple Mb's maybe. If I wipe it out, it will go to 0Kb, and then for the rest of the profile session, even if I have a bazillion tabs open, it will say 0, but then there's always a cache there the next time I start that profile.

What is it? Why is there always a small amount of data in the 'Cookies and Site Data' section each time I restart a profile?

I'm currently running version 68.2.0esr on Debian Linux version 5.3.0-1-amd64. Extension: uBlock Origin 1.23.0

                 uMatrix 1.4.0
                 Canvasblocker 0.5.14.

Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (disabled) Version 1.8.1.1

              Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Version 4.10.1440.19

I have web history turned off ('Never Remember History'), trackers blocked, cookies enabled w/ third party disabled, auto search engine update turned on, Do Not Track enabled, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' enabled by default (b/c history is off). I might have changed a few tiny things in about:config but nothing I remember offhand. Any other system info I can look up in need be.

I use multiple tabs when running Firefox (usually 7). My computer system says the processing speed is 1.60 GHz w/3GB (2.75GB) that is 64 bit. I have Ghostery & Noscript as extensions, a Firefox theme & Shockwave 32/OpenH264/Widevine Content Decryption Module as add ons. I just need to know whether my computer processor will work with this version of Firefox or not. Thank you for keeping it simple & for any answers I may receive.

No I said the bank used, passed tenth, a two page login then they changed to a one page login. (you stupidly misread my problem on the first go around)

I checked the fields. Both have the Fill field indicated.

The saved login information is all there and correct. However the password field is not being filled.

Six month ago my bank went from a one page to a two page login. The help you gave me six months ago solved the problem. Now the bank has changed back again to a one page login. Two days ago the response you gave me I marked as Solved when I deleted the saved ID and password and Firefox loaded the new ID and Password. I thought that would fix the problem. That was premature. I should have tried logging in to my bank, because it still isn't loading the password. The password field is set to Fill Password.

P.S. And I don't need another responses from some sarcastic SOB who cant read or think clearly and who sends me a NO-Reply Email that I can't respond to.

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

Restart Previous Sessions under Startup is NOT CHECKED, but previous sessions load upon startup. Do I have to quit each tab I have open? Frustrating not having the option checked but performs that way anyway. Causes long load up times too.

Man, why is getting support so hard too? This bad habit is all over the web. It's an industry disease. All one-way only.

Please answer each question separately:

Even though Google is my default search engine, I have selected the remaining 6 default options under 'One Click' Search Engines.

When I type a letter, it brings up searches for my default Google but the icons for the other search engines are in the bottom left corner.

1. Am I supposed to click on one of the icons to bring up a search for that particular search engine OR is my address bar search supposed to show searches for all seven search engines?

2. When 'Never Remember History' is selected, am I still able to select the 'One Click Search Engines' that will automatically be displayed the next time that 'Remember History' is selected OR can I only choose the one-click search engine options when 'Remember History' is selected?

3. Before signing into my old account, I noticed that users have to create a new Firefox account, even if they have an existing account, so that is what I did-Is that what I was supposed to do?

4. With this new account, will I automatically receive an email notification when someone responds to my thread?

5. Periodically, when signing in with my new account, I receive a 'Bad Request 400' message. Other times, I am able to sign in but the top right corner does not show me as signed in so I have to sign in again; Are these known glitches?
