Hello, since the last update to 79.0 all my addons are gone from the toolbar. Thats extreemly uncomfortable and I really do not know why Firefox thinks it is a good thing to remove someones addons from the toolbar!!!! Can anybody tell me how to get the icons for example the DownloadHelper, OnetTab, uBlock. . . back in my toolbat for direct access?

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

Question, My security preferences says my settings are controlled by my organization. This is a personal win 10 installation. Also third party cookies are re-enabled every time I run firefox according to a spybot scan. My linux installations seem to give me full control without the controlled by organization message. I'm guessing it has something to do with microsoft. I have reinstalled firefox twice without syncing to my account with the same result. Just wondering if you have seen this before. Thank you!!

I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

My system: AMD A9-9425 RadeonR5,5 Compute Cores 2C+3G 3,10GHz

                   8GB of ram 7.45 usable

I just got the Firestick, mainly because it allows you to use a web browser (as opposed to Roku). Apps display fine. But Firefox is so big that I only see the middle of the window. I can't even get to the "hamburger" section, nor the top bar to see if it's running in maximized. I'm assuming it's running as an app, though, because I do have the option to request a desktop site (same problem with that.)

Is there some setting that I'm missing? I've seen the stuff about holding down the menu key and hitting the rewind button, but that does nothing. And, when I hold down the menu key, I see the various options (such as installing tabs), but nothing about shrinking the screen size.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

I've been using Firefox for many (many) years, but the latest version is driving me mad. We are limited to high latency satellite internet, which I fully understand, but the current version of Firefox is painfully slow to respond after hitting "return".....

If I type in the URL box, or something in the search box (being old fashioned I still use the search box in the middle of the screen, I don't like typing in the URL box no matter how much "they" highlight it) when I hit return NOTHING HAPPENS (at least for a while!). Initially I thought I had a faulty keyboard, or that I was hitting shift by mistake, but when I started being more careful and taking note I realised that the slowness is Firefox. It can take several seconds of zero apparent activity before the two dots start flashing in the tab header.

The machine is high spec, not under load, and no other applications seem to be suffering. I do accept that the high latency means that transactions take some time, but the delay appears to be before Firefox starts doing anything - the screen does not change, no alternating dots in the tab header, nothing happening in the tab footer etc. I've repeatedly found myself pressing return again, thinking I missed!!

Is this a "new feature"? Is there anything I can do about it? Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

I was just using YouTube, clicked some button, and a pop-up video appeared that I could drag anywhere on the screen, even outside the browser window. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a pop-up window with no border, no file menu, no address bar! just a floating video with no border at all! Very creepy!

What is going on here? How can this be possible? Why is Firefox allowing this? Surely if sites are allowed to make windows pop up without borders, it represents a huge security risk? They could pretend to be anything - a message from Firefox, a Windows error message, anything at all. I am so concerned about this! I presume this is a new feature of Firefox and it needs to be stopped immediately!

Lately, Firefox seems to be giving more and more control over to web developers, and taking away more of the users' rights and security. It is worrying and I don't like where things are going. Why can't Firefox just concentrate on being a great browser instead of allowing developers to do new things?
