Without warning or notice, Firefox makes security "improvements" that disable relied on add-ons and extensions. Then the puxxle must be solved in the most inconvenient time and manner.

I previously was a supporter and user of Firefox. Since it has started to act like a Microsoft product, which I left to use Firefox, I seem to have no alternative but to search for a new and dependable Broswer that is not dictatorial in its habits.

I got here via https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/feedback/ so the following should be treated as “product feedback” rather than a "question".

Let me first say that I’m quite happy with FF overall but the way it supports "Bookmarks" really frustrates me... First, I've not been convinced to check how "Pocket List" differs from "Bookmarks" and the mere presence of its icon in the URL bar next to the “Star icon” irritates me since each time I want to click "bookmark" I always experience this fraction of delay figuring out which button to press.. at the very least I would like to have the option to move the “Star icon” to the other end of the bar. Second, upon times I think to access a previously saved bookmark I instantly get this “ooof” like feeling, suggesting this to be tedious … I suspect this because: 1) The “tilted books” icon is quite "distant" from the “Star icon” by different measures, it's not within the same control group, and it is set apart by a substantial length compared to the distance between icons in a group, so effectively, the “Bookmark concept" is in two places and since I save more than I review I tend to first look at the "star icon" regardless of what I actually want to do with "Bookmarks". I think a more intuitive design for me would have the "star" and "books" icons be adjacent visually somehow... perhaps combining the two into a "dropdown button". 2) Once I do locate and click the "books icon" I'm somewhat overwhelmed by seeing many options which all deal with "past pages" and it takes me another click to open the "sub-menu" to show the "Bookmark list", which itself is not really consistent with sub-menus as a UI navigation pattern. 3) ..at which point I’m presented with a relatively narrow list of descriptions having the majority of them being cut-off. This makes the whole list appear very cryptic. I would really appreciate having a one-button click experience in order to reveal my bookmarks. As a quick remedy, I would love to have the option to change the semantics of the URL bar pull down pane (e.g drop-down arrow) to show my bookmarks instead of the recently visited URL's (I never ever used this list to navigate back to a site).

Hope this is considered...

I was online with a good strong signal. Firefox would not connect to the internet regardless of what address I tried so I had no way to contact them to ask for help; thus my about comment that Mozilla Firefox needs a customer service phone number. Finally as a last resort on the advice of my broadband provider, I typed in support.mozilla.org and my problem was solved.

I still think they should provide a toll-free customer service telephone number !

I would like to have a conversation with the developer who had the brilliant idea of applying LZ4 to the formerly plain text session backup files that were used since the beginning and worked perfectly fine.

What is the name of the person whose idea it was to add a “feature” to Firefox that made recovering lost sessions so much easier and saving 3 MB of my disk space for wasting over 100 minutes of my time figuring out how to handle LZ4 works and how to get the plain text that would normally be written directly to the disk after Firefox failed to recover the session after a crash and after file system readability problems?

And did the community explicitly ask for LZ4? Were there users of Mozilla Firefox that recommended LZ4? Who exactly had the idea of implementing LZ4?

Will places.sqlitelz4 (or “places.sqlite.lz4”) become the next victim of lz4?

Thanks in advance.

It's a great idea, but a really stupid name. We've all been conditioned to think 'refresh' online just means, reload. I thought it would just recheck my firefox to ensure it was the latest version, and probably just reinstall itself.

Yes, I know I should have read more into it before, but it really shouldn't be so vague to begin with. Just a personal gripe, cause I lost all my bookmarks and my last backup was like a year ago... sigh...

I am a simple old dinosaur who has been using FF years. It has been gradually getting more complicated and irrelevant (at least to me) and over the last 6 months or so it became more and more troublesome with hanging, excessive buffering, slower and slower responses, crashing both itself and my computer. I have searched every forum, tried every fix and nothing works. As if a simple old dinosaur like would have a clue, but, if you were to ask me, i'd tell you that FF and Adobe Flash/Shockwave are not good friends and neither party seems to want own up to it. This morning my system was running like it was on one spark plug and FF's performance was reminiscent of the old dial-up days. Finally dumped it and went to Chrome (my loyalty credits were all gone). I'm sitting in my office with my computer, doing my accounts, playing 60's music on You Tube, my bookie's website is open, both my emails are open and everything is running at lightening speed. I had forgotten how good life could be. My question is, have i done the wrong thing?

This site: https://www.lawanswers.com.au/threads/ebay-and-paypal-australian-consumer-law-on-withholding-payments.6537/

Popped out a new window in the background when I highlighted some text.

1. Every time JavaScript is used to pop-up a new tab or window, an icon should be made available to report the site for unwanted pop-ups. The site could be added to a blacklist. The blacklist should be downloaded in whole rather than queried on Firefox servers for privacy (Mozilla does care about privacy doesn't it?).

2. If a site is on the blacklist and it tries to pop-up a tab/window then the popup could be blocked and same icon could highlight for say 10 seconds. Clicking the icon in this case would give the options to open the popup, white-list the page for the user, vote against the blacklist. Something like:

[ ] Show the blocked page. [ ] White-list this site for me. [ ] I don't think this site should be blacklisted

[ OK ] [Cancel]

Some fuzzy logic could perhaps be used to determine whether or not to keep sites on the blacklist. Sites with very large amounts of blacklisting+white-listing could be manually looked at.

Also: I don't ever want anything happening when I highlight text other than the text being high-lighted, it's not necessary and it completely ruins the browsing experience. No excuses, it's bad. Add a white-list if necessary for the 0.01% edge cases where this might be useful.

I have been a long time chrome user, but I wanted to switch things up, and tried firefox 66, but there are just some things I can't get over. These are a few things that annoy me when using firefox: - not a fan of the scrolling mechanics (I use smoothscroll) even tried changing values in about:config but was never satisfied. It seems slow and unresponsive. - when I launch my browser, I configured it to launch 3 tabs, but I only want to load the first (selected) tab, and wait until I select the others for them to load, I haven't found any option to do this. Also, I'd like an option to not automatically switch to new tabs when middle-clicking on a link or pressing "open in new tab" on a link. - I was never a fan of the search history window, and I really think it needs an update, it looks old and I never understood why the order is so weird (not chronological). The history tab in chrome is something I miss. The downloads window is alright but could also benefit from an update. - also, even though firefox 66 is pretty fast, it isn't as fast as I would want considering the HW I have (I5 6400 and a GTX 750 w/ 8gb of RAM), I find chrome a bit faster and more responsive, but I understand this is not something that can be fixed overnight.

The OFF/ON icons used a larger red line ( a little thicker than i added)(see attachment)

I'm hopping user profiles that include a user name and profile picture are in the works for FFHello ?

I also mentioned the inability to select my video and sound source for FFHello chat, as is i can only allow or disallow video and sound.

I have been a huge fan of Firefox for many years. I donate money to the company because I believe in the product. The development team has done a very good job growing the products.

I am slowly seeing little annoyances pop in the browser product that is reminding me more of IE. I am loosing my control over the product. I realize the annoyances I am seeing are to protect me but as a seasoned technical person I know where to go on the internet and what links not to click on. After Firefox update 62 you can no longer disable update notifications. I totally get there are more less technical users of Firefox out there then there are IT experts. You are trying to protect the less techy folks for the greater good.

I ask the dev team to please remember us Tech Savvy individuals and if you hide settings in the preferences container to please please leave them in the other container.

Thanks, your biggest fan!

I like the idea of the built-in share buttons, but I was dismayed to learn that they share cookies[1] with the main browser pages.

I consider the share buttons that are on pretty much all websites a privacy drain because they send data on the page you're visiting to the social network whether or not you choose to share it. So I ensure I'm not logged in while browsing normally, and only log in when I want to share something.

If the firefox share services used separate cookies (I guess like private browsing must), then it would be a really handy feature.

Actually in chrome when i want to save a webpage in PDF / print a file i go for ctrl+p then it automatically previews it with many options such as paper size/standard and more.. which makes it very EASY and time saving which i could not find in firefox. At

first i used chrome but later shifted to Firefox due to Privacy.... I thought installing PDF software made it disapper but later found that Firefox lacks the option. 

Suggestion : Please provide more options and make it ease of access in the print section of Firefox, also the print preview shows the options such as landscape/portrait... in top side it will be much easier if it is to the left/right side.

Whenever a disk is full and you download, the download fails without explanation.

Instead of the download simply failing, Firefox should tell the user that the disk is full.

The first time it happened I thought that the problem was with the downloads, until I saw that my removable disk was full.

But if a warning message appears, no guessing will be needed.

I have always allowed an automatic update of your browser. The most recent update changed the arrangement of the refresh button, and a few other operations of the program. I have used Firefox for years now. Moving the Refresh button has totally messed up my use of your browser due to muscle memory. Now, it is just like Internet Explorer by Microsoft. If I wanted my browser to be like Microsoft Internet Explorer, I would just use Internet Explorer, not your redesigned browser which looks and operates like Internet Explorer. For the first time, I had to go and revert back to an earlier version of Firefox. Once you put it back the way it was, I will allow the update. Otherwise, I might as well change to Internet Explorer. Why in the world would you do that? It makes no sense at all. Don't emulate the "other guys". It's bad for business. It just makes your faithful patrons mad at you, and IE users will never like you anyway. You just alienated a vast number of users. Please advise when you change the desigb back to the way it was.

I don't have a week to devote to learning all about something new. Firefox has always been crazy with updates every three hours that change all your settings so you have to re-do them. Now I can't find how to add something to favorites. I am sorry, I am busy and do not have time to read a book about your browser just to "learn how" to do things on it. Yoo hoo--- people in business DO NOT USE THEIR PHONES FOR EVERYTHING. So if this is primarily a phone or tablet browser, just say so and I will just uninstall it and quit being frustrated. Why have you kept changing and changing it until it is unusable? This is why people don't like it any more--- not because it isn't "phone friendly'! Get a clue! Hire someone over 13 who has actually some experience running a business to see what business people want in a browser and fix it!
