After update to Firefox 113, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is no full size anymore.

Before update to Firefox 113 (version 112 or older), the width size is still normal: full size; like search-engine-textbox on Toolbar.

  • 5 screenshot:

[1]: Firefox 113, about version, link image: 1-About-version

[2]: Firefox 113, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Toolbar is full size, link image: 2-Search engine textbox - on toolbar - full width

[3]: Firefox 113, customize mode, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is now full size, link image: 3-Search engine textbox - on overflow menu - customize mode - full width

[4]: Firefox 113, after customize, the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is no full size anymore. The width is so narrow, link image: 4-Search engine textbox - on overflow menu - after customize - narrow width

[5]: Firefox before 113, screenshot of another post (2022-may-04), the width size of search-engine-textbox on Overflow Menu is now still normal: full size.

Please review and restore the width setting, same as version 112 and earlier.

Thanks and best regards!

I'm now running in troubleshooting mode with NO extensions.

For weeks my drives have been churning and I've been running out of resource, seeing the hour glass, graying screen, etc.

I finally closed the windows with countless tabs, disabled some extensions, and it got better, but I still have problems, even in troubleshooting mode.

Task manager still shows phantom tabs. I had 4 tabs open, it showed 7, etc.

And strangely, I now see Kaperski Native Messaging with the tabs in task manager: https://www.file.net/process/plugin-nm-server.exe.html

Closed that. Have 7 tabs in one window, task manager shows 11 tabs.

Am so confused.

I just hooked up a new Windows 11 computer and installed Firefox, which has been my default browser for many years. I was irritated to discover after I synced with another computer that almost all the icons for my add-ons have disappeared with no apparent way to get them back. I NEED some of those icons and it makes absolutely no sense to have them gone. Before anyone suggests it I have checked where you customize the toolbar and none of them are there. I refreshed Firefox just in case it helped and of course it didn't. Checking online only results in finding other people with the same problem with no helpful answer. It's almost like Firefox is begging people to leave and go to another browser, which I probably would since I'm so irritated at this issue, but I'm not happy with any other browser. Firefox is the only one I've remotely been happy with, but the way it is right now I'll be pretty much unable to use Firefox on my new computer. At least I still have my icons on my Windows 10 laptop until I'm forced to upgrade to 11 but my new desktop just might end up Firefoxless unless I get a helpful answer.

Mozilla is great at pushing out every possible new update, no matter how trivial. Every time it does, I have to reset everything.

I've been doing this since Firefox 6. I've learned to store all my about:config tweaks in a file so I can quickly copy, paste and reset them on each update. I've included the various program settings I want, too, so I don't have to think and try to remember what each one means and what I want. I use userChrome.css to set some of my display settings, but I'm not very familiar with it.

Is there some script, program, add-on, or other method to convert this time intensive restoration of my settings every month or so for all the new updates. I'd love to find some form of a "registry.reg" type file that would work on Firefox and/or Thunderbird.

If there's something out there, I'm positive a LOT of others would want it, too.

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.

Hello,

When I close Firefox after the last update (current installed version: 112.0 x64 Windows 10), Firefox creates almost 200 processes (in the latest case 177), each using from 17 MB to 65 MB RAM (except one that is using over 200 MB - I guess the main one) using 100% CPU for about half a minute, and in that my PC is unusable - everything hangs. It takes a bit more time to close all of them.

Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you.

Block autoplay not working on 112.0.2. I've tried going into about:config and changing settings. Doesn't help. Also under "Settings \ Permissions \ Autoplay" shows default for all websites as "Block Audio and Video" and under Websites "About:Welcome" shows as "Allow audio and video." I've changed the About:Welcome to block audio and video. I've also tried clicking the Remove All Websites button to delete the exception. Neither works. I save changes, exit Firefox, and restart. Same settings as before, and autoplay still starts.

I'm currently running Firefox v 112.0.2 on Linux. I've had a theme installed for a while now that I really enjoy. It's a minimalist theme I found on github and then I topped it off with some colors that suite my desktop theme.

The ONLY issue I am having is with the dropdown menus. I can't see any of the list items and I cannot for the life of me figure out where to modify these colors. Searching has only gotten me more confused.

Photo is attached. I'm hoping that changing the text color here is an easy fix. The colors are all fine in other dropdown-ish menus, like bookmark folders for example.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have a premium Pocket account. I have pocket set to display suggested articles on the Firefox 'home page'. Out of the blue several weeks ago I clicked on 'more' to save an article to pocket and the pocket choices did not include 'save to pocket.' The choices given are: bookmark, open in a new window, open in a new private window, dismiss. Also when I move the cursor to 'more' a pinterest 'save' appears beside 'more'. I used to have the pinterest 'save' extension but I deleted it.

How do I get rid of the pinterest save and how can I get the correct 'more' choices, i.e. save to pocket back?

I've done everything I know to do and nothing has worked. At present I am right clicking on the articles I would have saved to pocket (each article to a new tab) and then I use the One Tab extension to save them in a group. I have attached a screenshot.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

I recently needed ti reload a Windows 7 backup and then re-upgrade to Windows 10. Now, whenever I open a new FireFox window I get a banner warning from K9 that says "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet." It shows a button "Open network login page." which attempts to go to the K9 page which is long since out of business. I uninstalled the software and re-booted, but still the message appears every time a new FireFox window opens. Before I go the dangerous "regedit" route, is there any way to easily remove this annoying thing?

My browser this afternoon updated to 112.0.1. Prior to the upgrade I was watching 9now.com.au. Post the upgrade the 9now pages will no longer show the controls or login boxes.

login.nine.com.au now shows a complete white page.

Devtools indicates there are almost no network queries being issued in comparison to edge.

To test I spun up a VM that had firefox 111.0 installed with the above web site working. I let firefox upgrade to 112.0.1 and it stopped functioning again. I downgraded to 111.0 again and everything works again. Seems 112.0.1 is breaking it.
