Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

Dear Friends,

For almost a month now I am unable to use Firefox - on startup it crashes giving the error message "Gah. Your tab has just crashed" I have tried every method/suggestions I found on the net. As per my Norton 360 & Malwarebytes Antimalware my m/c seems to be clean. Also from Help if I try to restart Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, it closes but never start up on its own. It needs to be manually started. Also in about:support page the about:plugins link doesn't work.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

I am attaching a screenshot of the error message. I am using version 88.0.1

v89 significantly changed the "Top Sites" default icons. Is there an about:config setting that can be changed to revert to the v88 icons? (Setting browser.proton.enabled to FALSE had no effect on the default Top Sites Icons.)

BTW, I do not find the new default Top Sites Icons to be an improvement. On the contrary, the bright colors and large letter outlines are overbearing and distracting. I would prefer no icons to the v89 icons. The v88 (and prior) icons were okay. [In general, I found the v89 interface update a step backward from v88.]

Thank you for any assistance in finding a solution.

I keep my address bar and search bar separate. I wanted to have the address bar execute the search on the already open tab, and the search bar to open a new tab in the background without stealing the focus. I managed to set them up separately, now the address bar does not open a new tab and the search bar does, but the newly opened tab always steals the focus. I'm trying to keep the focus on the already open tab while the search bar opens a new tab without switching to it. Is there a way to achieve this?

I'm an old Firefox user. Thank you for excellent Browser!

However, I've seen some bad things in Firefox 89, so I'll report it. After upgrading Firefox to 89, access from behind the proxy no longer reaches all addresses beyond the firewall. I noticed that the page opens correctly when I play around with the settings, which is related to the HTTPS-Only Mode and Automatic proxy configuration URL settings. I specify the address of "http:" in the Automatic proxy configuration URL. In that case, if HTTP-Only Mode is ON, it seems that the proxy configuration file cannot be read correctly. When I turned off HTTP-Only Mode and reloaded again, the page was displayed correctly. Alternatively, I can give up the specification in the Automatic proxy configuration URL and switch to the manual specification. That said, before 89, all settings were displayed correctly, so I think it was a trigger for the change in 89. Is there anything you can think of? Is such a phenomenon happening in other people?

I think that such a project would have multiple purposes: First off, you would take fewer things from Gecko, making for a more compact code base (I mean, does everyone want Video-in-Video and Pocket? Couldn't you integrate the most popular add-ons and remove add-on support? I like 'em, but don't they add bloat?). That could make the entry into development easier. Second off, it'd show people that Blink isn't the only engine you can base a browser off of. And if the code base is truly the same (includes Quantum), and more of a subset, it's probably easier to maintain and get security updates to than, for instance, Pale Moon. As fork developers are only able to backport security patches when Mozilla releases them, that problem would be greatly reduced if the project was made within Mozilla. Third off, having a lightweight browser might enable more people to use Mozilla products, as they could run the browser on weaker hardware. If the developers are able to focus on making that browser lightweight, it wouldn't be crucial for Firefox Standard to run on everything, and you'd still be able to reach more people.

Don't know where to write it, but I hope some developers of Firefox will read it...

After years of UI / UX Design studies Firefox recently "updated" the bookmarks menu ignoring everything ever established in UI / UX design rules!

1. When you right click on a bookmark you suddenly find the bookmark options split into two segments? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. Why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"? Such things cause all this annoying obstacles which no one needs when working with a program. Who ever thought this might be a great intervention should take the step back.

Same with folders. 1. When you right click on a bookmark folder you suddenly find the bookmark folder options split into two segments, too? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. And again, why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"?

I don't know if this has just become a problem with the most recent release of FF or was a problem before, as I only recently discovered the problem, but I did discover that my cookies were not deleting when using the shortcut Ctrl+Shft+Del -- and yes, making sure 'Cookies' and 'Everything' were selected. I can still manually delete the cookies by going to 'Settings > Privacy & Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Data' (which is how I discovered they were not deleting using the shortcut; I just happened to check here), but I would like to be able to use the shortcut. Any ideas on why this isn't working? Thank you for any solutions/suggestions.

Hello :)

OS: Windows 10 1809 LTSC Firefox Version: 89

Firefox is behind a proxy and I have problems with applications like BigBlueButton and DFNConf(Pexip), which using WebRTC.

about:webrtc shows problems with ICE. It seems Firefox doesn't use the proxy config properly on this step. The Proxy is set via GPO.

Testing with other browsers show that there is no issue with webRTC. Only firefox doesn't work.

Is this still a bug or should I try some other configurations?
