I have made Firefox my default browser on my laptop. When reviewing my account I noticed that the original username (e-mail address) I created the account with no longer exists. Is it possible to replace my new e-mail address for the old one, and use it as the new User Name?

  Thanks in advance for your help.

PLEASE think of the end-user for ONCE in your developer's life and STOP moving around the option to take screenshots please!!! First it was in the right-click menu (best option, I still try to find it there every single time just like the Copy and Paste options) then you moved it to the "..." address bar menu, and now it was removed once again and the user must customize the toolbar to add the button?? Seriously? Who thought this would be more user friendly? Please provide a single reason to justify this Microsoft-ish behaviour.

Surely the option will be completely removed in next version, to force users to return to a previous version.

PS. did Yahoo already acquire Mozilla? That would explain a lot.

Proton is crap. Low contrast high space and infuriatingly enlarged vs the old standard. Screens are getting larger but that means users are expecting more information on them not less. I actually reverted to either v88 over proton. Is the option to turn it off back yet or is still use custom css and hope they don't break that every update?

I cannot access access Ancestry.ca due to a Firefox Browser Validation Error 54. Ancestry says this is a client side problem, it is not on their side. Sometimes I can access and sign in the website with no problems, then when I sign out, I cannot sign in due to a Firefox Browser Validation Error 54 again. This has been ongoing for about four months. How can I fix this Browser Validation Error 54 so I can access Ancestry.ca.

Last time I updated Firefox all menus and settings were lost. How can I avoid that? Yes, I know the answer is "that shouldn't happen" but it did and took my software engineer husband an hour to figure out how to get them back. Would like to skip that step. It's been more than a year since I updated but I'm now getting error messages saying my browser is out of date and website cannot be used without an update. Help!

My primary machine has (FF 88.0.1 64-bit) has all the FF tweaks for privacy and annoyances I care to have. Last outstanding issue is floating videos -- but that's posted as another topic by me. Big questions:

1. Can I bring FF on the three other laptops and server to the same FF revision level at this machine and copy across all files that would capture settings this machine's settings/changes in Config and Policies ?

I currently make quick work of syncing UBlock and AdBlocker on all machines by simple export/imports of text files. Everything tweaked exactly the same on every machine with respect to FF is what I am after...

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

As of 11/21/2021 is there any way to stop detaching and floating videos ? All the searches on the Web produce loads of blogs where the issue is discussed -- but none of it works definitively. A lot of Hot Air and useless comments on the topic. Most point to about:config, which has been shown useless to stop floating videos, in my experience. Have tried every permutation of manipulating relevant config settings according to advice I have found -- nothing works. At the DailyMail.Com you can ad a script to AdBlock and it works -- for one site...

All the search links go in circles and just repeat the same information -- none of which works. Particularly annoying are the CBS affiliate sites with the URL *CbsLocal.com. Element blocking and ad blocking via UBlock and AdBlock does NOT work beyond one page view. It seems the floating video frames are given unique tags each time the page loads so you would have to code every combination of the alpha-numeric identifiers they use. That number is something like equivalent to the number of all the grains of sand on all the beaches in the world, according to my calculator...

If I am directed to manipulate about:config again I think I will scream and pull my hair out. Such a major annoyance and I am to believe there is utterly no way to stop it ? After all these years and the FF developers haven't looked into this ? I find that hard to believe...

I still have v88 of Firefox. I was automatically upgraded a few months back to v90 I think and there was no "file edit view history bookmarks tools and help" at the TOP of my screen like it has been forever! I use my bookmarks from the top of my screen all the time, that's how i get to all my websites. I found it in the side bar (right hand side I think, which is a horrible place for that)

Before I decide to upgrade to v94 (which says is the newest version) is there a way to put the "file edit view history bookmarks tools and help" buttons back at the TOP of the page and not in the stupid hamburger menu thing.

If memory serves me correctly the startup page also didnt have the "most viewed" sites or only have 5/6 and no ability to have 16 options, is that a thing still?

I'm a basic user who hates change when nothing was wrong with how it was before for the past 20 years lol

Thanks for any assistance!

I downloaded the new version, 89.0.2, not realizing how really horrible it is. Since, trying to return to the old version (88.0.1), I've managed to delete my entire firefox directory, and have to reinstall FF from scratch. I've lost all history and bookmarks for the past 10 years. I can get by that. But, how do I set a photo from my pictures library to my FF homepage? Thanks for any relevant responses.

Hi, lately I have been trying to tackle my secondary HDD being spun up for no reason in the background and one thing that keeps popping up is Firefox.exe accessing a bunch of fonts contained in the Solidworks installation on the HDD (which is a secondary drive, while Firefox is installed on the primary SSD).

I really cannot understand why it happens, since I think nobody is supposed to install Solidworks along with Firefox. Of course I don't want this activity to wake up my drive, but also, is it normal? I have to admit I'm kinda worried.

I'll attach screenshots from Sysinternals Process Monitor

Thanks in advance to anyone that will help :)
