I have found pretty much every extra short cut or feature that has been added to Tabs has either been useless for me, or an outright nuisance to deal with. And they all have to deal with when ever I try to move one tab from one window to another.

It used to be that I would try to move the tab, but then it didn't actually move it because just low enough for Firefox to decide that I actually wanted it to be a bookmark instead. Then it started to make it a bookmark because it was too high and hit the bookmark menu tab.

And now today it has added on the worst one yet, where if I don't put the tab right between the tabs of the other window it now decides that I actually wanted to turn one of those tabs into the one I was moving over.

Out of all of those this mos recent one is the most worthless of features because how much use it could give is vastly outweighed by its constant hindrance.

Is there any way to turn off any/all of these features?

This setting appears to disable playing the animation, but the gif data is still loaded.

Is there some way to disable loading the gif at all?

After removing one of my extensions from my toolbar (Last.fm Scrobbler for YouTube), it didn't show up in my customize page so I reinstalled it and even though it's still fully functional, it doesn't show up on my toolbar or my customize page. Resetting my customization settings to their default didn't help either.

When I last opened Firefox and entered a website, it did not load at first. Instead there was a message about OpenResty being installed or running. Since then there has been no other issue.

What is OpenResty, should it be running on Firefox? Do I have a problem.

I run the current version, with Adblock Plus, Duck Duck Go, and Facebook Container extensions.

My baby got a hold of the laptop and hit the keyboard a few times. Now I have lines going vertical, horizontal, and diagonal as well as around the address bar and some input boxes. I have refreshed firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled as well as looked under config browser.display.focus_ring_style to zero. I believe it is something in firefox not the computer since it only occurs there. the lines on the screen move with it when I scroll if that helps. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Why does Mozilla list this on their website if it is outdated?? It's like doing a search on Google in 2020 and getting results from 2014 version of Firefox. it is completely irrelevant. I didn't think Mozilla was as bad as Google.

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

Hi community,

a week ago i installed avast premium security, from that day firefox does not open any webpage, stuck in loading of the web page and after 1 minute stops the effort to reach the webpage.

When disabling avast shields, firefox works again and i can access webpages.

Other internet browsers works fine.

Before installing avast premium i had the free antivirus as protection and mozzila firefox was working just fine.

I run windows 10.

Thank you.

When will option browser.urlbar.maxRichResults work as it used to?

I want about 30 - i.e. a full screen's-worth of Rich Results. No problem once - not now.

Something is seriously FUBAR when a once-working parameter can be changed - but no longer has any effect.

Nothing to do with Top Sites, I believe. I know how to change the balance of what is offered.

I just want parameter browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to work again.

I can no longer stream CBS All Access. They are saying that I have some kind of ad blocking problem in my software therefore they cannot play movies with their ads. Firefox recently did a download on Nov. 18. It was 78.5 Oesr. Could that be the problem? Does 78.5 Oesr have some kind of an ad blocker? If so, how can I uninstall it?
