Unable to hide address bar + tabs in fullscreen on Mac—how to?

Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

The back arrow doesn't appear in bold when I visit a website, i.e., www.nytimes.com. I cannot return to the firefox home page.

The only way to leave the site and go to another site selected from my bookmarks is to close firefox and then open it as new.

On the box that allows me to Save or Don't Save a password when I login to a website, I don't have the drop-down menu arrow at the bottom right of the box that would allow me to specify that I want to set Never Save for a particular website. My Save or Don't Save box effectively only has 2 buttons SAVE or Don't SAVE but not the drop down menu button and its constant asking for websites that in previous versions I have set to Never Save is driving me crazy.

If I open a website with Firefox then close browser and go to open another site on my desktop, Firefox says " Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window". If I hit the close tab, the new site opens. I cannot find any other instances of Firefox running when it says this. Other browsers, Chrome etc. do not exhibit this behaviour. Any ideas ?

This is really noticeable on some forums. The edge of text font turns slightly blurry (so the text camouflages a bit into the background), and when you click on the text, it disappears magically?

If I disable hardware aceleration to fix it, YouTube videos have horizontal lines in dark content, so it's not a solution.

I've done everything suggested and this is HUGELY annoying and hello = a bandwidth user?? (Yikes what about people who are limited on data?? HELLO Mozilla!)

STUPID stupid changes need to be fixed.

PLEASE give us the ability to STOP videos from autoplaying, NOT Just sound but ALSO the videos! It's RIDICULOUS.

Yes, I'm very frustrated. It makes pages take longer to load... it's annoying.... it adds to our cache... people DO have data limits.... and some of us just DO NOT want to see videos automatically start, whether sound is on or not.

Here's my settings:

media.autoplay.default;1 media.autoplay.enabled;false media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed;false media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground;true

And yes, in my settings: Block websites from automatically playing sound is CHECKED

But that does NOT stop the autoplay of the videos themselves.

This is an urgent and annoying issue. Google it - people are looking all over the place for this fix.

(and someone suggested in another post to change it to 2 - that doesn't work).

PLEASE either FIX this bug, or let us stop it in autoconfig, or - better - give people an open and up front HONEST OPTION to NOT autoplay videos, just like you have the ability to block from auto playing sound.

Videos MUST be in there too.

Recently switched from Chrome back to Firefox but having a small problem with Youtube vidoes that never happened when using chrome.

Videos default playback at usual 1080p but after a while and you jump to another time section of a video the quality will auto drop down to 320p for no reason. It doesn't happen all the time but seems to be happening more and more.

I have tried with no added installed and a fresh profile but still the same.

Problem: I search for something in Google or wherever and click on a result that looks right. Now a PDF automatically downloads and saves to my phone. What if this were malware? What if I don't want the PDF saved to my phone? ex: search for Census PDF in Google. Click on any of the first few links (they are all PDFs). Result: Android says Download saved and asks if I want to open it (no prompt beforehand asking if I want to download this random link).

Tried: searched forever for a solution. In Windows, you can just go to Options and choose the Always Ask where to Save, or Always Ask or whatever, so that it will prompt you before downloading. I didn't realize Android wasn't set up this way already. I hoped that could be done in Android but it can't. Not even by changing some of the browser.download options in about:config.

Hopes: this can be like expedited for the next release. I guess maybe in most cases people know what PDFs they are downloading, but I am sure there has to be other people clicking a search result in Google without knowing that instead of a website, a PDF downloads (didn't even take me to the website either). PDFs tend to be a big medium for malware so it would be ideal for Firefox security purposes to at least prompt a user "do you want to download this file?" regardless of asking where to save.

Let me know your thoughts. In the meantime I guess I will hope I don't click any URLs that end up being PDFs haha. Thank you!

Ok, as with everyone else my extensions quit working. My problem is have very limited bandwidth and just can't do updates for any software, just can't pay for it.

So how do I fix my extensions as mozilla has rolled out fix in a full update. This is not something I can do unless they are going to pay for it lol...

I just want my old firefox and extensions back lol... otherwise this is absolutely useless to me and might as well move on to waterfox or another browser, which is sad as I have been with firefox since beginning.

Currently, if I want a tab to be a "pinned tab", I have to right-click the tab and then choose "Pinned Tab". But I'd like to automate that. I want Firefox to know that everytime I go to, for example, gmail.com, keep.google.com, fb.com, messenger.com, drive.google.com, contacts.google.com, I want them as pinned tabs.

How can I get Firefox to automatically pin the tabs for certain domains?

Every time I start firefox it nags me to "Set up sync" and it's driving me nuts. I only surf the net on my PC. I'm an old guy and my arthritic fingers won't allow me to use small devices to surf the net. I have no other devices to sync to. And I NEVER WILL have other devices to sync to. I am a long term firefox user, and don't want to use any other browser - but this is driving me nuts.

BTW, I get that you want to remind me about software updates, and I am fine with this. They are important - but not this sync business.

Hi. I'll try to keep this brief.

After reverting a macOS defaults command back to standard ( defaults write -g NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool No ) so that I can use the normal Mojave dark mode instead of the pre-Mojave dark mode, Firefox started displaying blank, light mode styled, context menus.

I tried all the recommended troubleshooting steps and eventually deleted all traces of Firefox, including Application Support and org.mozilla preference files. I then re-installed Firefox via a fresh download. However, the entire application is unusable, as if the OS is just not rendering the application properly.

I've uploaded a short video to demonstrate: https://imgur.com/a/DAcbL5k

Firefox works normally in a new user account I created just to test it so there is something user space level going on but I'd like to know what it could be and maybe a Moz developer would find it useful to know as well.

I can't access any of my old questions and they haven't changed. Can I block the address bar auto-fill ads? Is it a hidden setting? FF is set to never save any history, I've cleared history manually, and FF clears it upon exit. Many suggestions are for websites I've never visited, which makes me think they are advertisements. I have turned off all suggestions and "helpful" settings to no avail. I just really miss being able to type the first 1-3 letters of a common bookmark and hit enter, now I have to scroll down through a list, starting with FF 62 if I remember correctly. Still hasn't been fixed by updates, wondering if anyone has a workaround that isn't a more user-friendly browser.
