Hello, The controls in Settings to choose how Firefox updates have disappeared from Settings / General? The "Firefox Updates" section is supposed to appear there, based on:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-background-updates-firefox-windows https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-options-preferences-and-settings?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#search

This is on V109. I really need to be able to choose when an update goes in, Python / Jupyter applications I have running on Firefox can cost me hours of time to re-run if Firefox goes in and restarts itself when it wants to. I used to be able to control this. Has it really been removed, or is somewhere else and the docs not updated yet? Thanks Neil

Refer to the attached image ... I've looked thru history, bookmark manager, all the settings, and so on and this site cannot be removed from the URL suggestions! Your documentation suggested clicking a button on the far right, but it's non-existent. You also suggested to scroll down to highlight/select the URL and SHIFT+DEL, but that does nothing. I've been trying to get rid of this obsolete website link for over a year and it's an absolute mystery where the link is coming from and bugs me.

The latest update added persistent "More Tools" and "Extensions" icons on the top right of Firefox. Usually, by clicking "Customize Toolbar" I could remove any annoying icon that I don't want to persistently see, but it would seem that Firefox DISABLED the ability to remove these annoying icons. Please let us continue to customize our own toolbars and allow us to remove unwanted icons.

I installed Firefox at work and set my personal email address as secondary to my business address. Well, I liked Firefox so much that I decided to use it at work and at home - and I removed my personal email from my business account. Unfortunately Firefox is still recognizing my personal email as the secondary address for my business account and I am completely incapable of making a new account. My bookmarks and saved passwords are all different between home and work. I NEED two individual accounts, just like how I was using my browsers with Chrome.

Hi there,

All the icons on the taskbar when I open up Firefox have disappeared... and I now have the same "world" type symbol for everything. I've Googled and followed instructions, but I'm not seeing what the instructions are telling me to look for, so I can't make the changes.

Can you please send me a step-by-step on how to resolve this. I can't even 'open a page in a new tab'. That function has also disappeared.  ?????

I don't know what could have caused this. Would appreciate your help.

Cheers, Carolyn

When FF (113.0.1) is maximized clicking on the first (left hand) pinned tab does not open the tab. Hovering over the tab doesn't change the background color of the tab.

If I restore down the window, hovering over the tab changes the background color of the tab from light grey to a slightly darker grey and clicking the tab opens it.

I have a slight problem. I'm currently using Firefox 116.0.3 and it seems that it can't update. The automatic updating will run, and then it will fail (this is all the time when using Firefox). It will recommend me to download the newest version from the website, but then the CDN will and I will be presented with the "connection was reset" error. This happens both on my Windows 10 and Windows 11 machines. Both are running Firefox 116.0.3.

Funnily enough I tried to see if I could download the newest version on Edge (Chromium), which it could but the version I got from the website was the same version I have now. I wonder if this is something to do with my region as I'm based in China and I'm aware that some software can have...problems.

Also, when trying to download version 122.0, it is fantastically slow and will often fail to complete.

Is there anything that could be suggested as I really don't want to use Edge.

First, I tried to install via the web download from mozilla.org. That led to the wont-start-up problem. Then I reinstalled and reset my computer, and had the same problem. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled via the microsoft store, and that worked fine, and got my browser set up. That was all yesterday. Today, I tried to open firefox, and it once again wouldn't start. I'm pretty sure I shut down my computer overnight between yesterday and today. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled via the microsoft store. Here's the *really* weird part: today, when trying to launch firefox, windows will instead open a different program, seemingly at random. When launching firefox, it has instead launched:

  • Audacity
  • Some AMD software thing
  • Calculator
  • Microsoft office

It won't open even if I try to open it in troubleshoot mode. I tried to find the crash logs file in my system that some support article recommended I find, and windows couldn't find that file. No error message or dialogue box appears when firefox crashes on start. I'm running windows 11 on an amd gpu and cpu. Help me not use google anymore!

Normally I use side-berry to hold all of my tabs - the panel normally collapses and hides to the left of the screen - showing just the favicons of the website.

After the most recent firefox update 107.0 (20221110173214) there is now a large bar that i can't remove!

I have a CSS file for appearance, which i have included below.

any idea how to shrink this dead zone? I would really like to keep using my fun tabs.

I recently had to factory reset my computer and had to download and sync my firefox account all over again. It's been a week and firefox is still syncing, none of my bookmarks, add-ons, history or top sites on the new tab are showing up. Thankfully, it appears that most of my passwords have been synced.

I've read some other threads for tips and can confirm that I don't have this account logged in to other devices and I don't have a vpn or proxy running. I am able to obtain the sync logs but I have no idea how to read it.

How can I make the bookmarks, add-ons, history and top sites sync faster?

Why has this started up again? Pdf files are automatically downloading to my computer when all I want to do is look at the file. So many files that now need to be trashed after looking at them. This problem has happened in the past, but was resolved, only now I am finding it happen again. I do not want to have files saved unless I want to save them, not Firefox deciding that any file I open should be saved. I have Windows 11 & Firefox Version 113.0.1. Is there a way to revert to an older version of Firefox?
