How do I get rid of the new menu bar that displays links/icons for "Getting Started" "Customer Portal" and "Other Bookmarks"? As they needlessly take up screen real estate. I guess they came as part of a recent update, but I find them to be a useless and redundant theft of screen real estate. Can someone please tell me how to rid my FF browser of it?

I am using FF85 (64-bit) on a 64-bit PC with Windows Home 10 64-bit.

Thank you,

Charlie

Here are some tricky parts:

1) When using Firefox, take YouTube video as an example, I can hear the music if I connect my laptop to an external Bluetooth speaker. (But without using a Bluetooth speaker or any external speaker, there is no sound through my laptop even thought I turn my laptop volume to the greatest.)

2) For the same video, if I use google chrome, I have no problem hear the music no matter using a Bluetooth speaker or my laptop internal speaker.

3) You can argue my Firefox privacy Autoplay setting was wrong. But I checked and I allow both audio and video for all websites. Besides, I also checked the Permissions status on each website.

4) The weirdest part I don't get: Supposedly I can play and hear sound through Firefox, since I authorize all the website. But why there is no sound if I'm using my laptop's internal speaker? ( And only the laptop's internal speaker)

5) For my internal speaker, it work fine when I use Zoom, hear music through windows' Groove player, or even play video through Chrome.

Last but not least, I still ran troubleshooting trying to fix my internal speaker. But they can't detect any problem.

I'm so confused.... Does firefox hate my laptops internal speaker? Please help me. Thanks

I have been using Firefox for the past 2 years, but only recently have I noticed that Firefox is using 1 GB of RAM! It never increases or decreases and its getting very annoying now since I have barely any RAM to run zoom with (which for some reason takes up the rest of my RAM). I can't even run anything else, and thats annoying me a lot since my fan has to keep running. I can't upgrade my RAM because I use a laptop, and my laptop is under warranty and I can't afford to lose the warranty by upgrading the RAM. Is there any other way to decrease memory usage beside using about:memory and pressing the "minimize memory usage" button? Nothing happens when I press the button.

<start rant>I see that all the menus have disappeared from firefox in the top of the window on my PC since a couple of years now. This is such an annoying "improvement".

The worst thing is - it keeps getting more and more difficult to open them with each successive "improvement" you make.

I actually use firefox for my job, not to watch tiktok videos or browse facebook or watch inane people do inane things on instagram.

Heads up , you developers. To be able to "do" things with your freaking software you need to be able to "click" on easily accessible drop-down menus.

So, why don't you give us stupid users the option to always have menus displayed the whole freaking time? Then, if some of us are backward enough to want to click on menus to do stuff, then we can still do that ! </end rant>

My sneaking suspicion is that you guys don't want us to control where we go on the internet at all. You want double click to tell us what we need to see and do and then you all earn $$$$.

I use FireFox for Mac and Since last week I have been having as issue with the "Save as PDF" function within FireFox. When I save and open the .pdf (in any PFD Reader) much of the text is replaced with blocks and question marks. See the screenshot for an example (Note: Black boxes are to hide personal info - the text behind them appears normally).

So far I have tried completely reinstalling Firefox, changing the security sandbox settings to 1, and opening in another browser. It works fine in Safari and Chrome.

Any ideas?

No matter what I tried, I can not delete my browser history, nor can I delete single websites from my history. The history list works fine, all visited sites are visible and browser history is updated, but I can not delete any of the entries or the whole list. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the problem is still the same. I have read and write permissions on the .mozille folder, so this can not be the problem.

Strange little problem has started recently and am thinking it might be related to the latest couple of FireFox updates. When I open FireFox and try to start typing in the search engine box, nothing happens...I have to click the mouse pointer on the cursor to seem to activate it for lack of a better term...and then I can start typing OK. [ No other typing / mouse click related problems with anything else what-so-ever ]

The cursor automatically goes right into the search box like it should, sitting there blinking for me to simply start typing from the keyboard. But typing is unresponsive, no typing occurs until I now take the extra step and mouse click on the cursor., then I can type OK.

Default browser is FireFox...the behavior is the same on multiple search engines of Google, DuckDuckGo, and Wikipedia. Since Firefox was a common denominator, I uninstalled FireFox, reinstalled it…but no help. Yet, if I try Internet Explorer from the ‘Windows Accessories’ section, it's search box typing works normally. Any experience / known issues would be appreciated.

I was logged on, Firefox shut down, installed new updates, and wiped everything because of new privacy controls - bookmarks, history, settings, everything! To log into my account, I had to reset because I lost my password and couldn't get to the recovery key link. I have a backup bookmarks file from a couple of days ago, but it's missing some really important pages I just bookmarked last night and there's no history for me to reference. First of all, why did Firefox do such a drastic update with no notice and secondly, is there anything I can do to restore everything I'm missing? I'm so upset I'm thinking about removing Firefox as my default browser. TIA for your help.
