It used to be that when customizing the toolbar, you could insert a simple "separator" (vertical line) between other buttons. But this is missing in more recent versions of Firefox. Why was this removed? The only remaining option is "flexible space", but this takes up too MUCH space. I just want my simple separators back!

Can't play vp9/opus videos in FF

This is Firefox 52.0.2 32 bit ESR, Solaris 10U13 Sparc, on a 2.75 GHz. quad core Sparc VII Sun M3000 from a Sun Ray 2fs thin client.

ffmpeg, libx264 and libx265 have all been installed from https://www.opencsw.org/get-it/packages/. Flash 11.2 r202 is also installed.

A look at https://www.youtube.com/html5 shows all six boxes under "What does this browser support?" are checked. The box "The HTML5 player is currently used when possible" is also checked.

I can play some videos fine, for example this H264 test page: http://www.html5videoplayer.net/html5video/mp4-h-264-video-test/

(Actually, there's no sound but this is a Sun Ray audio issue, not Firefox).

All three of the test videos here: https://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html also play OK (or they did before the author of this page removed the files).

All three test videos on this page also play OK: https://tekeye.uk/html/html5-video-test-page

Some Youtube videos also play fine, like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyuWDANi7Y0 or this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H77m14Du9O0

The right-click "stats for nerds" shows they use avc1 and mp4a codecs.

But any video that uses vp9 and opus codecs does not play. It just sits there with a spinning circle on a black background forever. And that seems like the vast majority of videos on Youtube.

In fact avc1/opus videos on Youtube also fail to start. This happens even with all FF add-ons disabled.

Oddly on cnbc.com, the small preview window videos play OK but when clicked to full-size, they just give the spinning circle. (I can't tell what format those are).

Is there any way to get these opus videos to play?

Firefox 67 breaks shared profile between Ubuntu and Windows10

Hi,

I use Firefox on a Windows 10/Ubuntu 18.04 dual boot system and share the profile of the Windows partition to use the same Firefox information with both installations. After upgrading the Firefox Win10 version to 67.0, I get the error message uploaded as a picture. The Ubuntu Firefox version is also 67.0, so there is no older version that modifies the profile information.

I found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1259820 describing a similar question, and the chosen solution to delete the compatibility.ini from the profile folder revived the profile. However, this is not a permanent solution. Using Ubuntu Firefox after Windows Firefox is unproblematic, whereas the error reappears in Windows Firefox after using Ubuntu Firefox. I have to delete now the compatibility.ini every time I use Windows Firefox after Ubuntu Firefox, which is rather annoying. Obviously, the Ubuntu and the Windows version of Firefox 67 interpret this .ini file differently. Is there anything planned to synchronize both versions of Firefox 67 better? Or any other solution that solves this problem permanently? And no - I don't want to store my profile information on an external Sync server. Thank you for your time reading this. Any help is much appreciated.

I've spent much time trying to craft a userChrome.css, and it never works right. Every time I get close, something else is badly broken. For example, I _finally_ got the address box turned off, so they can't type in addresses, but now the Back button is non-functional.

Version 65.0 moved the tabs back to the top of the window. Why isn't the placement optional?

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 65.0. Immediately, I noticed that the tab bar has now been moved back to the top of the window, despite the hack I used to move it down. I know that I'm certainly not unique in disliking this location for the tabs toolbar. It makes a lot more sense for that toolbar to be below the bookmarks toolbar. That way, it separates the website content from the program's interface. Does anybody know of a way to move the tabs back down below the bookmarks toolbar? TIA

I just updated to Firefox 65 and suddenly my tabs are once again up in the gods. How do I get them down below the bookmarks toolbar and address bar? I've tried Userchrome and followed the 2017 video (which was very lcear by the way) that was recommended in Firefox support but it didn't work and I'm at my wits end. I hate this tabs on top thing and just want to put it back where it belongs. Please help?

I am using the current version of Firefox and when using a particular website (Microsoft CRM Online) I get frequent popup dialogs . The issue I have is Firefox will ask me (in a dialog) if I want to "prevent this website from creating additional dialogs". I understand the reasoning behind this, but I don't want it. I would prefer that the dialogs behave in the same way they do in other browsers.

Can I disable this feature either at the browser
