This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

I'm using Windows 10 and just updated to Firefox 78.0.1 last night. Normally, when I open a new tab, I push the down arrow key to bring up my browser history and access my most-used sites. Upon updating last night, I discovered that I can no longer do this. When I press the down key, nothing happens. To get the same result I'm used to, I have to press the space bar, but I've been doing this a certain way for several years and the motion is completely ingrained in me. If I turn Top Sites back on in the options, the drop-down list will open upon pressing the down key, but that of course only brings up the Top Sites. That's not what I want. I tried rolling back to the previous version, 77.0.1, but that didn't fix anything. If I create a new profile, the problem persists. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know it sounds like an extremely minor issue, and maybe that's true, but I just want to use my browser the way I like using it. I'd appreciate any help/input.

Also, I suppose I should mention that I didn't make any changes to my preferences prior to this issue.

It is a folder in program files (x86)\common files\

When I mouse hover over any of the EXEs it says it is a Firefox program. Google tells me nothing.

The problem is, it (the update.exe) keeps causing games to minimize whilst I am playing. I know this, because I installed Windows Focus Logger. I ended up deleting it. So far I have had no issues with Firefox functionality.

What is it for ? And why is Update trying to phone home ? And why is it ignoring all Windows 10's settings to not grab focus ?

Forms (such as a newsletter sign up or unsubscribe) do not show up in Firefox on my Mac.

These forms show up normally in Safari on Mac. They also show up normally in Edge AND Firefox on PC and all other browsers that I know of.

I of course use Firefox on my Mac and would like these forms to show up properly on that browser.

Hi everyone,

When I check my email, i have a tendency to just type in "gmail" and then search directly from the search bar. For some reason Firefox decided to give me an option to "add http://" to the beginning of my search term to 'make it easier'

Problem is now it just puts in http://gmail/ which causes issues as it doesn't add .com and I can't find the option to remove this from my search bar or bookmarks. I've reset and cleared the history and everything, and can't find this option. I'd like to just disable it outright, as all it's done is cause a headache.

Attached is the autocomplete filling in the first entry, which I cannot find a way to remove it. I realy like firefox and know there's a way to do it. Can anyone help? Thank you!

When I m using google doc or sheet to edit a document from google drive, I notice that my cursor will freeze for 5-10 sec from time to time. No issues with chrome on the same documents. I never had this problem until the firefox updates in the past few months. I have tried the usual steps such as disabling all plugins, start firefox in safemode but nothing works. The problem is consistent across all documents, even for new documents. Does anyone know of a workaround?

After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.
