Rant: Why did someone think it was a good idea to put a massive logo at the top of the home page ? It serves no practical purpose and it forces link icons down so you now have to scroll "!!"!!

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

I've tried to install several search engines via Mycroft Project to use them through the search bar but that doesn't seem to be working.

I don't get any notice, it just doesn't work.

Also, one of the search engines I've been using (Twitter) seems to have disappeared from my browser. That's what got me to try to install it again, with no luck so far.

(I've dowloaded Firefox Nightly, installed it from scratch, and seem to have the problem.)

I noticed the toolbars had changed positions and thought I'd use the customize page to see if I could reorganize them. Somehow I ended up with the usual three toolbars, but bookmarks are on the top (tabs) toolbar, not the bottom (bookmarks) toolbar, which is empty. This is Ubuntu 21, firefox 95.0b2.

Top: Starting on the far left are the Ubuntu window controls, my bookmarks. and tabs. Middle: The customized URL/search bar. Bottom: The bookmarks toolbar, which is empty. I know this is so because CTRL-SHIFT-B hides and shows it.

I can drag bookmarks on the top(tabs) toolbar around, reorganize them, and and delete bookmarks and folders, but always only on the top (tabs) toolbar. I cannot drag any of them to the bottom (empty bookmarks) toolbar.

I've seen some solutions that mentioned creating userChrome and userContent files but they were outdated and I think there should be simpler solution. A friend of mine has basic Firefox version and she said she has never met with such problem.

I've tried:

  • Clearing cache and cookies
  • Creating some Chrome files
  • Disabling addons

I don't think it's Firefox Developer Edition's problem as the issue has been persistent for some time/updates now.

I'm not sure this is a problem with Firefox but I have run out of other options to look at. At first I thought it might be because the page uses a frameset (I know it's obsolete) so I created a version that uses an iframe instead. That way the html that needs to be acted on is not in a frame. It still doesn't work. I don't know why it works in stackoverflow's sandbox and jsfiddle but not on my website. Any help is appreciated.

Frameset version iFrame version

If you need to see the tabstrip code (it's virtually identical to the iFrame version): Tabstrip for frameset version

The script is supposed to hilite the selected tab with a red background. The rollover works fine (yellow background and brown text) but the selected tab color never shows up.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

When using the dark theme from Firefox, Google searching seems to break completely as well as some pages will not load which may be related to this.

I have already tried uninstalling Firefox, deleting all of the folders, then reinstalling with a freshly downloaded installer (Even tried the beta one) with same results. It seems potentially MAYBE related to how long ago I closed Firefox before I shut down (Like Firefox is trying to save something to a secure location and times out, then it will work but if it hasn't timed out, then it crashes... or this is my guess)

The Signature seems to change randomly for the crash between crashes.

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

Inspector element highlight html element wont go away when the mouse no longer hovers

This question is about the developer tools (inspector). Sorry if this is not the right forum. If this is not the right place, please specify where I can ask this question. I have looked around but this seemed like the best place to write this.

This problem started a couple a month ago in Firefox Developer Edtion after an automatic update (to either v82 or 83, im not sure).

This is what used to be the case, prior to the update: In the developer tools, in the inspector tab. There's an overview of the HTML-tree, and when you hover over an html-element in the tree, the correspondent element in de browser window is highlighted, and when you move your mouse the item will no longer be highlighted, since you're no longer hovering over it in the HTML tree. This is how it has always been.

The situation as it has been for 2 to 4 weeks: After selecting a couple of items in de HTML tree, and maybe editing some CSS, so just after normal use, The selected element will stay highlighted, even though I'm no longer hovering over it in the Inspector window. I added a screenshot to show what I mean. This bug is annoying because when editing CSS, I want to be able to clearly see the changes I mean, but now theyre obstructed by the highlight. Toggling developer tools by pressing F12 twice fixes this obviously, but only for a couple of minutes, and sometimes the problem return immidiatly.

This problem first emerged in Firefox Developer Edition about a month ago after an update. It really messes with my workflow, and I couldnt find a solution. Tee problem emerged on multiple websites (not just the ones a was developing, as you can see in my screenshot it also happens on the mozzila website) and the problem was the same accros multiple computers (all modern windows 10 machinary, owned by me or my collegues). So I stopped using Developer Edition, and switched to using 'regular' Firefox for developing, as regular Firefox did not exibit this bug. But since last week, after regular Firefox also got an update, the bug appears in regular Firefox aswell.

So here I am, an avid Firefox Developer Edition user, desperate for a solution. Ofcourse I already tried everything from reïnstalling, refreshing firefox, everything.

Thanks
