Since 2016 i've been using firefox on PC and i've been perfectly content with it until a few minutes ago I discovered this annoying blemish that i'd rather not have in my menu bar when browsing, except I can't delete, alter, or move it in any feasible way because I want my 'more' folder to be visible for easy access. Has anyone been able to remove this? Help would be much appreciated.

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

I use Firefox for work and I have a site that has a pop up window that shows me alerts. When I use this site on Edge or Google the site makes either a sound or blinks in the taskbar or both. On Firefox I cannot get it to do either of those. The site seems to work best in Firefox but I need an alert sound or visual to let me know there is an item for me to review. I have gone into settings and tried to change things to make this happen with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there!

We have error logs being created fairly regularly for user(s?) with a particular Firefox extension. We are trying to identify this extension to determine the cause. I know a reverse-lookup (ID to name) service exists for Chrome extensions. Is there something similar for Firefox extensions? Thus far, I haven’t been able to find one.

The extension ID/source in question is: moz-extension://ba9d01f7-5cbf-442b-94bf-f030a6fdc626/scripts/uninterrupt.js

Any insight that can be provided would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

(I originally posted this in the discourse forum, but this forum appeared to have a larger audience, so my apologies for the blatant cross-post... but I'm kind of at a loss here.)

The print dialog box has been changed, Now I see no way to add or modify custom Header text. I am all for simplification and streamlining, but not dumbing down so much to the point of removing functionality which is seemingly has happened here. Used to be able to change the text as shown in attached picture "Page Setup"...is this just gone now? Please help, now I will have to try in another browser or use a sharpie.

Hi all,

I am trying to use the page as app function in FF, 84.0.2. I have set both browser ssb flags to true, however it seems as though it requires FF to be open before that function will allow a web page to dispaly as an app.

I am primarily using it for my calendar.

It works well in Chrome.

Regards,

Steve

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-adobe-flash says Firefox 84 still supports Flash. Yet on some learning websites that use Flash still, like alison.com but it doesn't really matter where right, it shows this where the flash app should be and all blank white around it: (see "capture" screenshot below)

And I can't click on it nor is there a pop-up bar nor a little plugin icon at the beginning of the URL / address box to click on.

How do i enable it?

I found this: (see "extensions,plugins,shockwave_flash" screenshot) Am I close? :)

Norton Safe is not an option in the drop down list of possible search engines. When my husband installed Firefox, Norton asked whether to make it the default search engine, and he did. I was not given that option, and I find no way to add Norton as an option.

I have set Restore Session on Startup but this always fails and I have to recreate all of my Tabs all over again. This seems to be a broken feature. Is there some known bug/issue with this and is it being worked on because it looks like I'm going to have to switch to another browser. I have about 12 Tabs I use routinely and setting these up de nova every time I restart Firefox is a complete pain. Any advice?

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

I wanted to know if we can condense all the browser extension into a single extension icon and then click on an individual icon to access it's options. That would save a lot of space and clear the clutter from the toolbar. This feature has been implemented in Chrome and I have attached a screenshot as a reference. Any help would be great.
