FF recently updated and when it restarted my browser window is now not showing my menu toolbar or bookmarks toolbar even though they are checked to be on. Plus the minimize/maximize buttons are overlapping my tabs at the top. It seems I'm in some different sized view or something that I cannot figure out how to get out of. I am not in "full screen" view (already tried F11 to be sure). And I've tried dragging the sides out but that doesn't fix the top min/max button issue where it overlaps and my toolbars AND my MENU bar still do not show up. I've gone into customize and removed and then re-added the "bookmarks menu" but it only shows up next to the other icons, not in the normal "toolbar" format with my folders, etc. I can view my bookmark toolbar in the SIDEBARS but again it's just the top of my screen that's messed up and I know it has something to do with my min/maximize buttons being overlapped with tabs but can't get out of it.

I've put a screenshot below to show you what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having a lot of trouble with the URL autocomplete function not working. I have been trying to solve this for a couple days and nothing is working to enable the URL autocomplete. Here are some of the things I have tried - does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much!

-Made sure the browser.urlbar.autoFill item is set to 'true' -Adjusted Firefox History settings to 'Remember History' -Adjusted Firefox Address Bar settings (Browsing History, Bookmarks, and Open Tabs are checked) -Cleared cache and cookies -Reset Firefox several times -Reinstalled Firefox (without deleting profile and Firefox data)

I have attached screenshots of how my 'about:config' looks, as well as the 'Important Modified Preferences,' in case there's an error that someone else can catch.

(I am running Firefox 68.0.2 on macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5)

this morning, I get the above error message when attempting to open ff. I was able to open ff from the start menu(windows 7 enterprise), but all of my bookmarks have disappeared. I had the system administrator attempt to restore my computer, with no results, then reinstalling ff. upon reinstall, I was able to open ff, but bookmarks were still missing. then, a ff update "esr" was run, and now I get the error msg above trying to open ff from anywhere. I cannot open ff at all to restore defaults or run in safe mode to fix.

Greetings, I have been exclusively using Firefox forever and happy with it until a friend said "Hey, try this" and tacked duckduckgo on top of it - and I'm sure it does a great job - but I have since then noticed some browsing oddities relative to Firefox pre-duckduckgo and I want to remove it that I may compare before and after performances.

But I can't find it anywhere and as I am allergic to, and highly suspicious of, anything I can't track down and remove from my system if I so desire, I REALLY want it gone, at least until I find out more about its characteristics.

So question #1 = is it really that useful, and #2 = how do I remove it regardless? Thanks for the feedback.

I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

I no longer see ads when I read email, look at a magazine or newspaper article etc. Some sites don't like this and won't let me view what's on them because I am blocking ads. I have looked at Options>Privacy and Security>Tracking Protection and it is not turned on. It is only on when I use a privacy window which I am not using. I have no idea where to look to be able to modify this. I have cookies enabled.

I will admit I have far fewer crashes now that the ads do not display in email and I am happy about that but when a site I belong to won't let me read there because ads are blocked that becomes a problem. Do I have any control over this feature? I only use Firefox on my pc that runs Win 7 Professional and I use version 60.3 esr 32 bit because I still run into situations where Java is required and it was explained in an earlier question that I should use Firefox esr because of this.

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!

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!
