Every time I download anything a status bar showing the item I downloaded as a tab appears at the bottom of the screen. I cannot find any option to disable that so that it ceases to appear. It is a rather recent addition to Firefox so I'm guessing there's a hidden option somewhere that will allow me to achieve my goal.

Any suggestions, please?

Can anyone please tell me how to stop seeing boxes full of letters and numbers instead of icons on certain websites I visit ? I attach a small picture of what I mean as an example. It only applies to a very small number but it does make navigating around the sites difficult.

I would be most grateful for any advice offered.

Thanks

I've had Firefox installed and working in W-10 for a long time, yesterday it suddenly got minimized to the task bar and nothing I tried would open it. I had to use Chrome to search for advice, and it turns out that other users had the same problem. I tried the suggestions (alt-spacebar-move) etc. but nothing worked. I had to got to "Uninstall" and the opted for the "Refresh" function to restore Firefox to a functional Browser. It's now working again, but what caused it? and is it likely to happen again? Thanks for your attention  :)

Hi. Yesterday, I browsed thru my Firefox and/or GMail settings, and removed headers and footers from my printed copies of emails and web pages. Which is fine. However, at the same time I must have mistakenly changed a setting so that my print-ready version of an email or web page always displays in B & W, not in color. Although it will print in color, depending on how I have my HP printer set. How can I change that back so the print-ready Print Preview copy displays pics, etc. in color? I forgot what I did. Aarrgh! Please help! Thanks. John Darin

I have no idea how it started or why, but in the past couple days anytime I leave my cursor over a paragraph or chunk of text on a website, a black box appears where my cursor is with the text in it in white. If there is a lot of text, there's a sidebar to scroll down in the box. This disappears as soon as I move my cursor, but reappears as soon as I set it near some more text. I assume this is some kind of accessibility or reading feature, but I have no idea how I turned it or how to get rid of it. I've looked online and in my setting and had no luck getting rid of it. Any help would be appreciated!

There was a question asked on this forum in 2013 that describes the Subject, but nothing since. Running on Window 10 Home.

This problem does not occur on my Windows 10 machine with Edge or Chrome browsers.

Nor does it occur on Ipad or Android browsers.

I had stopped using Firefox due to the lack of being able to preview pictures or attachments in gmail. I started back to using it and see it still the same thing! A panel opens up asking me either to choose how to open it or top save it. Obviously if its a .jpg I want to preview it, then decide what I want to do with it. How do I fix this so I can just preview quickly?

As I am on the computer all day, I find it helpful to get around slow page loads and stuck videos by clearing my Browser Cache frequently. As many as 20 times daily.

I have to do these exact steps: 1) Click on Tools>Options>Privacy & Security. 2) Scroll down, wait while cache data is gathered before the Clear Data option becomes active 3) Click on Clear Data 4) Uncheck the Clear Cookies box 5) Click Clear.

I do understand that by using the right settings, I could have Firefox clear the cache automatically, but that would just mean frequently closing Firefox and opening it right back up, losing all my open tabs in the process, so that option really doesn't work for me.

It would be really nice if Firefox could just put a button to Clear Cache (and only the cache, not the cookies) right on the Menu Bar. It would be one quick click and done!

Am I missing something - is there a way to customize my menu bar to do this, or is this something Mozilla is looking into?

Dear Sir or Madam,

I like to install Firefox with the online stub setup, because it installs the latest version automatically. But in the first installation english is predefined and has to be changed later in settings manually (for every user account).

Is there the possibillity for a stub-setup (not the offline-version!) that installs Firefox in german language directly and if yes, can you tell me where I find the download for it?

With kind regards.

Hey uh.... this ain't normal right?

The white space appeared the other day, thought it mildly annoying, but every once in a while (not certain the cause) it gets a little bigger. Now it's almost half the address bar. And it's still goin'. It's a big issue because I can't click on the white space anymore to highlight the address, so eventually, I'm worried that I won't be able to highlight URLs anymore soon enough.

Has anyone seen this before? What do I do to fix it?

Recently two-sided printing has started to flip pages "up" instead of "over" as desired. The only way I've found to prevent this is to first set the magnification and then determine the desired page range in the FF print dialog. Finally I go to "Print using system dialog...", where I can change this setting back to "over." The change does not persist, however, and must be reset every time I print, which is a real pain!

I checked the Windows printer preferences and verified that the setting saved in my default print shortcut is "over," so the change isn't coming from there. What next?

Details: Windows 10 (1909), HP Universal Printing PCL 6 (v6.9.0), FIrefox 86.0 (64bit). -- jclarkw
