I can't find a way to disable tabs scrolling. This is highly confusing, I have to always look for my tabs and do extra clicks and scrolling. This is very distracting. Also those two buttons - "<" & ">" - they occupy extra space. The left one is especially annoying because I expect a "+ new tab" button to be there. I don' want to test/use this new experimental feature, how can I turn this off? Thank you.

This current version of Firefox (126.0) is preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing/displaying in ANY Yahoo! article. After I finished reading a Yahoo! article, the Yahoo! Comments is viewed but upon clicking on Comments, it just disappeared. It happens in any Yahoo! article with Comments. I used Safari to see if I experience similar issue but Safari is able to show/display Yahoo! Comments upon clicking on them. I have no other browser plug-in or app in Firefox preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing, it seems to be a Firefox JavaScript issue.

Firefox has stopped saving history and I am unable to save any bookmarks. This seems to have happened recently for no reason I can understand. I haven't made any changes. I use a VPN but was doing so before this happened. I have checked all the settings and also deleted the places.sqlite file. When I click <bookmark current tab> nothing happens and history shows as empty.

As of January 2024, I am constantly being asked for a Primary Password when I use the Firefox browser. I do not believe I ever set a Primary Password or Master Password with Firefox, and I have been using Firefox for many years. When I go to the Settings page, it says to confirm my current Primary Password in order to change it. But I need to know my current password to do that. I also unchecked Primary Password, and got a pop-up that said if I remove my Primary Password my information will not be protected if my computer is compromised. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. Is it possible I am being asked for a Primary Password because I am using a VPN? Please advise on how to resolve this problem. I can't change my password, and I can't confirm ever setting one so I am concerned. Thank you.

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

I have a website that is cached with Cloudflare. It turns out that after updating it I tried to reload the cache by pressing the shortcut key Cmd+Shift+R, but it had no effect, the HTMLs are downloaded but the content remains the same.

In this case I had to directly access the HTML and JSON file that were not updated and I had to carry out the procedure individually for each one, thus reloading their cache, but not for the entire site.

The site only had the files loaded by accessing it via the anonymous tab and then clearing the entire browser cache.

Firefox version 122.0 Mac: Sonoma 14.1.1 apple silicon

The problem emerged about a little over a year ago (around September 2022). It started with an installation of firefox on another machine running BigSur, and I guess the problem got ported when I restored a time machine backup on this current machine. I attempted to troubleshoot the issue by following mozilla support and reddit threads but to no avail. I, at the time, settled on monthly time machine backups, but now finally decided to address it properly.

Troubleshooting steps that I have followed:

  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.max_pages and places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages to 2147483647 then to 999999 after reading about how a value too high might be ignored (both values didn't seem to change anything)
  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.transient_optimal_database_size to 85534800
  • removing the add-on/extension manager as seeing that it might remove history for some reason (from a [thread] by IceTemple)
  • In the privacy and security tab, history is set to Firefox will use custom settings for history

Things I suspect might be the problem:

  • I originally used the Chinese version of firefox (downloaded from the .cn website) and reinstalled the international version (from .com) after getting annoyed by the built-in ads. For convenience sake, I ported the profile folder over which might have carry the problem over. That being said, I don't think this problem existed when I just started using firefox but appeared awhile later.
  • result of an update, don't know which though
  • certain extensions (I haven't went through them individually since I installed a lot)

My questions:

  1. How to stop Firefox from doing this ever again?
  2. Alternatives of storing history if nothing works
  3. Why did my troubleshooting steps not work? Is there something wrong with my version of firefox that prevented the about:config changes from working?
  4. If I have to resort to backing up the places.sqlite history file, how do I restore/reintegrate them with current history file?

English isn't my first language so I apologize for any confusion that may arise due to how I articulate. Any help is much appreciated
