I just added "TextArea" to my extensions & it only can be selected by clicking on the picture puzzle icon at the right edge of the address/search bar for a dropdown box of extensions. I would like to display it and a number of others now only on the dropdown on visible toolbars, but can't move them there. When I select "Customize," it shows some basic icons not being displayed, but only the basics and does not include extensions I've added recently. I used to keep icons in the All-in-One Sidebar on my left margin, the Vertical Toolbar on my right margin & the bottom Status bar in pre-version 57 FF and don't want the extra hassle of having to use the dropdown for commonly used extensions. How do I get these icons moved into an existing visual space on my browser? I have 3 36" HDMI screens & plenty of real estate to play with, but no way to use it in FF for new extensions. Do I have to continue to use alternatives like WaterFox Classic & Pale Moon?

Ever since updating to the current version of Firefox (112.0 64-bit, according to the settings), every time I close the browser, I'm logged out of every single service I'd been logged into. This was not an issue with previous versions of the browser, and old forum posts on the subject don't seem to contain correct, up-to-date information. Is there some setting I'm missing, that I need to update?

At some point every night, my Firefox (and only Firefox) reverts to version 111 from the latest version. This happens on 2 different Windows 11 machines.

I can only get Firefox to run again by running from command prompt with "-allow-downgrade" option and then updating again.

I usually don't notice until I launch Firefox the following morning and it gives me a message that the profile was created with an older version and to exit or create a new profile.

I've had Firefox open and then it reverts and it gives me a XULRunner error about the profile being used by an older version.

I don't have any special backup or restore software running and the physical files in my Firefox folder in c:\program files\mozilla firefox are being physically pushed to a prior version dated 3/21/2023.

On both machines, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled and it's good for a day and then reverts.

No log entries for the reversion can be found. It's just back to a prior version.

I've never come across anything like this before and have scanned for any malware or other issue, but haven't found anything.

Using Twitter to compose message in Firefox Browser however cannot scroll to reveal box to reply. How do I activate the scroll bar to the right hand side of the twitter "compose a reply" chat box?

While I'm in Firefox, composing a reply in twitter, I can only get so far. The gray scroll bar on the right will not move. So I can create a reply but I cannot get to the tweet box. See images attached.

When I try to scroll, this chat box comes up instead asking to save or discard. I do not want to do neither. I want to reply right now. I went to chrome and used twitter there and I could retweet, add my comment and then scroll down to select the tweet button.

If the scroll bar on the right would actually scroll, it would take me to the bottom on the chat box where i could then see and select the tweet box. So please tell me if I can use twitter while in Firefox to reply to messages or must I always go to another browser? How do I activate the scroll bar to the right hand side of the twitter "compose a reply" chat box?

I hope the images help. Thank you for reading.

I'm having a problem sharing websites with others via, for instance, Signal. Telegram, WhatsApp or a social medium. There used to be a share button in the toolbar, but this I cannot find anymore. At some time there were also the three dots in the address bar that dropped down a menu for the page, which included a 'share' option. These dots seem to have vanished. Also I vaguely remember that the "share" function was also in he tab context menu once upon a time. However dropping down that menu does not reveal any "share" function presently. Then there was, if I remember correctly, the possibility to click the File menu at the top of the screen and then click on the Share menu item over there. But also there the "share" function seems to have vanished. I also looked in the settings menu, to find if there is a setting there which switches on or off the sharing function. I could not find such a setting. In short, it seems that I am horribly overlooking the "share" function. Please help me find it. Thanks. (Firefox 112 for Manjaro Linux)

As per old thread at: https://support.mozilla.org/zu/questions/1365405 which has since been archived.

As of version 113, this solution is being suppressed. I occasionally see the x appear briefly on the left when a tab is selected, but then it reverts. So far I have not been able to work out what setting is overriding this function, so I've just rolled back to 112 and used the "--allow-downgrade" flag on the firefox shortcut so I can still load my old profile, but understand this is not a safe option in the long term.

This site, Costco Instacart, worked perfectly with Firefox as recently as April 15, 2023 but today fails (see attached image): https://sameday.costco.com/store/costco/storefront?zipcode=11021

Cloudflare believes it is protecting itself from online attacks when accessed by Firefox. The same site worked perfectly today, on the same computer, using Google Chrome.

Cloudflare is a major CDN and many important commercial sites, like Costco Instacart, have their content delivered by Cloudflare so this is a major issue with Firefox. For the moment there is a work-around, use Chrome instead, but it would be better to have Firefox address issues with Cloudflare.

Due to some unknown reason from today morning whenever I use paste function, my Firefox crashes and quits. It includes pressing ctrl+v, right click and paste, and edit>paste. It occurs in all webpages and not only with texts, but also when I try to copy/paste for example a bookmark.

My browser is up to date, I rebooted several times, and also opened Firefox in Troubleshoot mode. But the crash still happens.

Does anyone have any idea what the reason of this problem is and how I can fix it?

A couple of months ago Outlook.com changed its "look." And instead of highlighting text, right clicking and and having the small MS window come up where you can click "paste," their own window came up and "paste" was not one of the options. So I had to use Ctrl v to paste.

But Outlook just added "paste" to their window. But it's not working in Firefox. But it does work in Chrome. Outlook will never address this, so what can FF do about this?

I already have a profile with all the extensions, passwords, bookmarks, etc., that I want, with FDE. I want to start using Nightly, but dislike the continual moving of passwords & bookmarks, so I just want to use Firefox Sync for this.

(1) Is Sync a good option for me here? I would use FDE & Nightly on the same laptop.

(2) If my plan is ok, what is the best way to start with a new Nightly profile (which I would then Sync)? I tried deleting my old Nightly profile, uninstalling Nightly, and then downloading & uninstalling Nightly again, but every time I do this (including a reboot after uninstalling), I get a profile cannot be loaded error message every time I try to start Nightly. I don't want to use an old profile with Nightly, because I do not want to sync old data at all.

Suggestions?
