I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

Hi there, first time posting. I have Firefox 82.0.3 64-bit and I am on Windows 10. The only add-ons I have are Ublock Origin and Adblocker.

This morning I was having some internet trouble and it turns out my ISP needs to send someone out to my house to fix it. While my internet was going in and out, Firefox seemed very sensitive to this because it would continue to crash.

I was wondering if your internet connection going in and out can cause Firefox to crash (I need to the end the process because it is unresponsive type of crashing). I don't usually have any problems with Firefox and just wanted to ask.

Thanks.

It bacame jagged (sharp) as if Clear Type was disabled in my system but I checked it and it is turned on. Also I don't see this problem in other browsers, Edge or IE, only in Firefox.

Hi,

I do not see length of videos on thumbnails any more, moreover progress bar that was visible on viewed videos is also not visible so I cannot tell what videos I've already watched.

I have made some testing and it seems YouTube is showing video length when I am not signed in - progress bar is still not visible (but it seems to be obvious when I am signed out).

Running Firefox in safe mode is not helping. I am using latest Firefox 82.0.3 (64 bit)

I also have checked in Chrome and there it's working without any issues.

Have You seen such issue? Can it be latest update of Firefox?

Hello, I have problem with YouTube. When I am clicking "Share" button I got screen with infinite loading. The same issue happens when I want to open menu by clicking on my avatar. On dev console I am getting a POST error: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/401

I tried to: - clean Google/youtube cookies and stored cache; - clean then all cookies; - relaunch Firefox with all addons disabled; - enter via private mode with/without addons; - flush dns on dev console; - disable completely antivirus; - change DNS.

What is interesting, that problem happens only when I am logged in to my Google (YouTube) account and only on Firefox. Even on private mode it works until I do not log in to my account.

I would be very grateful for help.

  • After I updated to Firefox 83, my bookmark and history shortcuts now up inside the URL bar instead of next to it (Picture 1) (I know this is part of the new update 83, how can I change this back?)
  • Additional settings for the URL bar show up (as they should) after I go to a new website. Usually these options are always there (Picture 2) However, all these options disappear (Picture 3) as soon as I type anything in the URL bar and these settings won't return until I open a new tab and go to a website.
  • Lastly, when switching between search engines I know have to click the search engine and then also click enter to complete the switch. (I know this can be 'solved' shift+clicking, but I would prefer for it not to take an extra action and revert back the old pre FF-83 way)

Does anyone have any how I can change it back? - Either by reverting back to FF82, or by using about:config

Hello, it's been a few days since I noticed that google's "in-applets" don't work properly. In example, the answers that are built in to the results page ("People also ask") can't be expanded, results for shopping searches at the top of the page can't be scrolled, business info has issues etc.

I deleted all my cache and cookies, disabled all my add ons, restarted in "safe mode" (add ons disabled), yet all the above work only on a private window (or with firefox when started to a different profile).

Any clue what can be the issue?

I have a website with SSL. When I open it by simply www.sitename, FF automatically uses https and extends this to all sub-pages. When I open sub-pages directly, i.e. www.sitename/pagename, FF uses http and shows the insecure icon. If I open sub-pages with https://sitename/pagename, FF shows them as secure. Chrome and Edge automatically use https for sub-pages opened directly by www.sitename/pagename. Why is FF inconsistent in this way?

Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks

My previous session didn't automatically reopen when I restarted firefox. When I went to the help section, it told me to click "restore previous session" from the menu, but I don't have that on my menu. The example shows it after "new private window", but my menu has "zoom" in that spot. I noticed that the "sync" isn't at the top of my menu either. I had this problem once before, but it was long ago, and I don't remember the solution. Hope that I'm describing my problem well enough. Frustrating for a senior, trying to stay safe.

Cannot Maximize Windows without a Massive Border of White Dead Space and Forced Resolution Change

I restarted my pc last night, and when I opened today I was met with the following issue. Whenever I maximize a window on my primary monitor (3-monitor display), it goes full-screen but only shows a portion of the content. It brings with it a huge white border (pictured in screenshot) that registers as a portion of the desktop (or perhaps just not as a portion of the window). By that I mean that when I click in it, it is as though I am clicking out of the window and onto whatever app or object is operating behind the Firefox window.

Changing the zoom does nothing. It just adjusts the size of the display within that same limited portion. Strangely, when I drag the window onto the second or third monitors, it will maximize without issue. Returning the window to the primary monitor, however, recreates the issue. When in this mode, I cannot access the menu nor tool bars. My only way to manipulate the window is to right click in my taskbar, "restore" to a non-maximized state and work from there. When not maximized everything functions normally.

I disabled all add-ons and plugins, but the issue persists. I have no fullscreen background applications which should be affecting the application or its resolution. When I launch, in safe mode, it is better. I can maximize. The border is still present, but I am able to access the menu functions with the alt key. My software version is current. The drivers for my GPU are current.

Again, this issue happened overnight with no changes on my part whatsoever. I shut my pc down after a day of work. I booted up today to resume work, but I am unable to do so until I can solve this issue. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.

Hello, I've got a serious problem with Firefox version 83.0, 64 bit version, on Wondows 10 ver 2004 I have never had any problems with FireFox, it's been my-number-1-browser since like ... ever.

Problem started today (but I rarely restart my PC), in short => Firefox doesn't open the site i want. In my home network (LAN side behind a router) I have a Synology NAS running my website, let's say the addres using port-forwarding is:

http://my_own_site/ (LAN side and WAN side)

and by typing this (above) addres in a browser's address field, it all goes well when tested on computers where I work, and using my cell phone (both outside of the LAN).

Let's switch to LAN tests:

When I use the Edge browser on My PC, when I type: http://my_own_site/ it also works as expected.

When I use the Opera (12.16) on My PC, it also works as expected.

Only when I open the Firefox on my PC, and type: http://my_own_site/ it opens (redirects?): http://my_own_site.com/ and it IS NOT the website I want to open!

Since all browsers except the Firefox on my PC, work as expected, I don't find it to be the DNS or system related problem. In command line (cmd) when I type: "ping my_own_site" - all pings return (100%) and almost all ale below 1ms.

There's more: Like describe above, my NAS has a network name my_own_site, and is fully accessible when browsing the network in Windows \\my_own_site; it also provides a www based management service with address: http://my_own_site:5000/ <= this also doesn't work. It worked yesterday! What changed?

Please, anyone got an idea what changed and how to undo the change? Please help, Chris
