FAQ based forum WT? Like repeated questions? Again a forced update? Why does moz have such a serious problem with page tabs next to it's actual page? Address bar/shortcut bar in between? HELLO! They are PAGE tabs...not button bar tabs/address bar tabs...PAGE TABS!!!!! And this time where the tabs were moved some transparent art image and tabs back at top? And me on another quest to move the tabs to where they belong?

I am trying to customize my Firefox on mac so that the menu bar is always displayed. However, looking at ways to fix this I am told to go to the customization menu, click the tool bar drop down menu and click "menu bar". However, I do not have this option. Only the book mark bar is displayed? How do I make it so that the menu bar is always displayed when I browse with firefox? Every time I change a tab the menu bar pops up because I scrolled to high and its impossible to enjoy this browser. I've tried resetting my browser to default settings and this never fixed the problem. Please help!

Hello, I recently wanted outside links to be opened in private mode in default. I found solution here. It was to change in some flag in entries in regedit (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB\shell\open\command and FirefoxHTML from -url to -private-window. It works great but Firefox started asking to be my default browser despite being it. As if entry "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url"%1" as whole defined if this is my default browser (with url flag) and not only location of Firefox. For now I just unchecked Firefox to check if its my default browser. Am I missing something?

When I use email link in Firefox, Mac, Outlook an email pops up with the link, but when I try to add text to the message it takes me to the link.

I have tried the return button and moving the cursor and it always takes me to the link. When I return to the email I can add text.

Okay so I have a few problems with Firefox. I usually have problems with my browsers but this one has not fixed any of the problems I had before so I decided to bring them up now. I have reinstalled Firefox before and the problems still occur. I do not really want to install it again because I have around 31 extensions and 17 scripts. I have tried this on a fresh install and decided to ignore it but it's becoming more and more of a problem.

1. History, so when I put the settings to not put my history on the search bar it ignores the clicked setting no matter how many times I click and un-click it, so I made it so it would not save my history. That worked but it would not save my passwords, I have a account that I have to accept on my phone. And another where I have to get a special code. This is incontinent and does not give me options to change what it remembers and what it doesn't. Also when I turned it off it actually did remember all of my passwords and accounts.

2. Videos, I had a problem with this back in 2013, 15, and 16 and it still happens. If I Maximize the window it starts to tear the video but if I go minimized it is fine, and if I full screen it is also fine.

3. Firefox account this one I just don't like it being on as soon as I login.

4. I've removed all the "One-Click Search Engines" I don't want and they keep coming back.

5. Some file types (even though I have the downloader option saved to ask me where to save) just save to some random folder in %appdata% that I can't actually get into said folder by normal means. So if I close the browser it just removes it because it's not in the Downloads folder its in a hidden folder that is hidden in other folders.

6. It saves all the search options in different websites excluding google because they have their own bad problems with google accounts.

Now my question is, are these issues they plan to fix or is there a way I can fix any of these?

If I have two (or more) tabs open for the same website and I want to resize/zoom something on one tab only, the other tab now also changes.

As an example, I will have the Guardian news site open with all sizes of text and graphics as I like them. If there is an article open for comments I open this in a second tab and, because the text of the comments is smaller, I increase the size on this tab.

Doing that made the text on the second tab a nice size for me but nothing on the first tab changed.

Since last night, every time I change the size/zoom on the second tab it now does the same thing on the first tab. I've done nothing different to this laptop nor firefox settings.

What's happened?

I'm using a laptop to configure network devices using their GUI interfaces. Depending on our needs, etc. the connections may be via http or https. AND this condition may change in the midst of preparing a device with new firmware or with a new configuration. It seems that if a device (by IP address) is accessed via https and then the access mode switches to http, it's no longer possible to connect at all. This makes one believe that the device has "bricked" and starting all over is necessary. If the same thing happens again, no matter the procedure, it becomes most time-consuming AND frustrating. It could result in the device being RMA'd or retired. So this is a serious matter.

I have learned that settings can be undone by clearing them. But this is a not-so-often procedure and is a deviation from real work.

Is there a way to have Firefox NOT remember exceptions so that http OR https will work more or less directly when tried on the same IP address?

I have used Firefox from the very beginning—well, almost. But over the past year or so a lot of things graphics related simply don't work; or took weeks or months to implement, such as applications requiring Adobe Flash. Now, I have reached the point of changing my default browser to Google Chrome. I really don't have much choice since I have cut the cable-cord, and moved into an area where tall trees block DirecTV satellite signals. Are there any plans in the works at Mozilla to rectify the situation? If so, when? If not, that is so sad.

DDG has been set as my default engine. This (v.63) FF setting is reliable and consistent. i.e. it sticks.

Alas, changing the 'Privacy and Security' Settings in FF wipes out the default DDG Search settings. (and no, this never used to happen).

For example, clicking on DDG's Search Results no longer open in a new tab and all the DDG Search settings are reset to their default. This is consistent, repeatable and happens after customizing Cookies and Trackers in FF Settings. (I have no idea about any other Search Engines)

Yes, I deleted all the .sqlite files and .js files and re-installed FF. Generally I 'pulled my hair out' trying to find the cause. Even add-on offed Privacy Badger, uMatrix & uBlockOrigin (to no avail.)

I don't like to be bald and hope FF will buy me a wig for my travails.

Solution? Keep FF 'Privacy and Security' Settings at their defaults....

Hope this helps someone else as it took me a few weeks... Devs? Hah!

When having a png, pdf, jpeg, gif etc. open, it Firefox would usually show a little icon for it on the tab bar, showing you what image is opened on it without having to be on the tab (this only worked when the image wasn't too big or the there weren't too many tabs open at once). However, these icons don't show up anymore at all since the last update. I tried refreshing the tabs several times, even closing them and opening them again, yet to no avail. This makes it difficult to know which one of the images you have opened is the one you need, as all tabs only show the title of the image, not what image is on it. I'd just like to know if this is a bug, if that feature was simply removed, or if there's some setting that I can enable to make them show up again.

Thanks in advance! :D
