Firefox updated this morning for me, and now my search bar doesn't work (all search engines were cleared) and I can't find Google as an available search engine to add back. Further, when I do get search results from whatever engine I use, when I right click and say open in a new tab, nothing happens. Really scratching my head on this one since I've never had issues like this before.

Updated to Win 10 Pro 2004 this morning and now web pages either won't load or take considerably longer (minutes longer) than opening the same page in Chrome. I've tried the following:

  • Restarted Firefox in safe mode
  • Restoring Firefox via Apps panel
  • Restarted my PC multiple times
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox

This also occurs in MS nightly.

Any help would be great!

Need current beta channel profile on release channel Firefox

I am trying to keep a work (Windows 10) and home computer (Mac/Mojave) in sync for my Firefox settings. I have long been on beta update channel at home (now 80.0b3) but work machine is locked down to release version only (not sure which one that is).

I get the following error when I try to sync or open a release channel version of Firefox

"You've launched an older version of Firefox.

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this version of Firefox."

This error dialog offers no options for 'override'.

I need my current user profile to work across platforms and on release channel. I have customizations that I cannot recreate because FF made it too hard to find out how to recreated long-ago and necessary modifications (like killing that bleeping 'throbbing' tab slider that I cannot cope with....and others I don't even know how to describe.

I don't care about bookmarks and browsing history--I never save history and I know how to export, save, and reimport bookmarks.

I care only about my about:config, userchrome and prefs.js and the like.

How can I get around this BUG?

And: am I the only one who thinks the throbbing slider on the loading tabs is the creation of the devil? I can't avoid getting distracted by it--the visual noise is intolerable especially in a work environment.

Is it possible to have several PiPs running simultaneously in separate 'windows'?

The PiP view is actually really useful just for losing all the window decorations - panels, info/status/bookmark/title/tab bars etc.

It would be useful to be able to pop out two, three or more different videos (e.g. multiple youtube videos) to arrange them around the screen with optimal scaling/space usage to fit them all in.

I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

When I open Firefox then go to bookmarks and select a site, they open as expected. However, when I go to my emails bookmark and click on it, the screen refreshs but does not change. In order to open my emails I have to click on the bookmark a second time, then it opens as it should. The exception to this is that if I go to any other bookmarked site first then from that site, go to and click on the emails bookmark, it opens normally at the first click.

I've tried refreshing Firefox as per the instructions but that didn't fix the problem. This seems to have started after Firefox updated itself the last time. I have made no changes to my Firefox settings so I'm not sure as to why this glitch is suddenly surfaced.

Hi.

My PC died a few days ago, I took it to a repair shop, and the guys there installed an SDD, reinstalled Windows 10 on the SDD after saving (almost) all the data from the old hard disk. Yes, I know they should have made a clone with one of those cloning programs, but they didn't and now it's too late and there's nothing I can do about it. I managed to find the Firefox folder in the old Program File folder. It contains the following files. Is there any way to recover the bookmarks, passwords or the session I had saved with this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-session-manager/ ? I didn't have a Firefox account. I used the browser without being logged into any account, but I had a lot of bookmarks.
