Extended desktop, two different PCs, vertical layout.

Upon opening Firefox a white bar appears across the bottom of the top screen and the only way to get rid of it is to hit F11 (Fullscreen) twice. Minimizing, maximizing, restoring all have no effect - only taking it from a normal window to Fullscreen view (no menu bar or tabs), then back to a normal window works.

It happens on every new window opened and it doesn't matter which display it is opened on, the bar will be there if moved to the bottom screen, until F11 is pushed for that instance of Firefox twice.

This has happened before and it would seem to go away on later updates, but it is currently visible on every computer I have that has one display above another.

I recently refreshed my Firefox, as it was being very slow. I'm trying to restore my bookmarks now and just getting the message "unable to process the backup file". Googling the problem turns up long, technical answers that I can't parse. Can somebody explain to me (a computer idiot) how to fix this?

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Ever since my Firefox updated on my windows 10 I have been having a lot of problems. Very slow loading times, any video I watch (whether it is youtube, twitch, hulu, etc.) buffers constantly, and if i have even only 2 tabs open i get the message in the yellow bar saying a webpage is slowing down your browser. I have tried a few different things; virus scan, checking installed programs to make sure nothing thats not suppose to be there is there, running firefox with add-ons disabled to see if that helps (didnt change anything), and restarting firefox. So asking for help on this, any solutions or insights are very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I have used and updated Firefox for years. I am now on v79. And in my prefs.js file (about:config) there is tons of old crap. Things like references to old addons which cannot even be installed any more and were removed during updates, prtiner setup stuff for printers I no longer own, and something that is causing the rendering of chase.com to be messed up and the site unusable in FF.

Is there some reasonable way to clean up the prefs.js? Using about:config does not seem to remove entries, only reset them to default. If I exit FF and edit the file in my text editor, FF doesn't work right when re-started - I have to restore the profile folder from a backup.

There must be some way. Any help/tips?

Thanks

How to delete "main" sites (like "youtube.com") from automatic suggestions in the address bar

When I type "you" in the address bar, Firefox autofills to "youtube.com". However, I would like it to autofill to "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" instead.

In other cases, I can use shift+delete to remove suggestions so they no longer are offered; however, this does not appear to work for sites like youtube.com, as pressing shift+delete temporarily removes the suggestion but adding an additional "t" ("yout") causes it to autofill as "youtube.com" again.

Is there a way to delete these suggestion so the subdomain "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" is automatically suggested when I start typing this?

Hi,

It's pretty much exactly as the title says. If I copy formatted text from Google Docs that has indents and paste it elsewhere, all the indents turn into 5 spaces. All other formatting stays the same, though.

It's definitely some problem related to my browser, as I don't have the same problem on Google Chrome. I even tested it with the exact same file/text to be sure.

Any ideas?

I have alot of open tabs on mobile phone and want to view - and then delete - each of the tabs on my desktop because it's massively slowing down my mobile. I am able to open on my desktop the synced tabs - although I can only open them either one-by-one, or the entire lot of 1,000 of them - but cannot seem to delete singular ones or a few tabs at a time when are no longer needed. Is there a way to delete a synced tab individually from a connected device that's NOT the device where the tab is currently open/ originally saved? Thanks!

Opening links from external applications (i.e.: Outlook, Word, a PDF, etc.) begins to open a new tab in Firefox, sometimes it'll open a "full" tab-width before hanging, more often than not, I'll see a sliver of the new tab while Firefox sorts itself out.

Typically when this happens, I'll see upwards of 50% CPU usage from Firefox itself. Memory seems sane.

Hardware acceleration, whether it's on or off, makes no difference. Issue persists in safe-mode, and safe-mode with add-ons disabled. Issue persists in Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition.

Hello!

     So this might be a very simple thing I've clearly skimmed over in the many times I've searched. Or perhaps I didn't enter the magic words into Google just that special way to get the help I desire...

     I'm playing with Addon and Extentions weighing the pro's and con's of different Addons serving the same relative purpose. It's pretty irritating the method I am currently using, downloading an Addon and then going in, and then disable the one I downloaded to grab the next to avoid bad results that can arise from overlapping Addons working on the same functional area. I wanted to know if there was a means in which I could disable the automatic enabling of Addons when I add them from the default Firefox site?
