I've changed the settings found in this thread to remove the suggestions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283813

I also want to revert the stupid focus effect on the search bar. This is a classic case of "don't fix what isn't broken". I'd love to know if the people making these decisions at Mozilla actually use their product. From my experience in large orgs with product owners, I'd bet my entire paycheck that they don't.

In my Cookies and Site Data, under "last used" it says there's a whole bunch of cookies being accessed every time I launch Firefox. Even if I launch Firefox with no open tabs, cookies are still being accessed when I launch.

I find this deeply disturbing! Cookies surely should not be able to activate until you start visiting websites?

Can anyone please explain how and why are these cookies being accessed?

When I enter text in the 'find in page' (cntrl-F) text box the screen goes into partial Dark Mode, sometimes full Dark Mode. The issue presents itself as soon as a word in the find box cannot be found - 'commu' is OK, 'commue' is ng. It happens in 'Safe Mode' also. I am using the 'light theme' but the problem occurs using any theme.

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

I've recently come across two websites that use embedded maps, where the maps are not loading at all. (but maps.google.com is working just fine)

There are two embedded maps on here that don't load:
   https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html
And the main map on here won't load, and its my first time using this site:
   https://www.zumper.com/apartments-for-rent/new-york-ny

Here's what I've tried in solving this issue:

 - Turned off the Enhanced Tracking Protection for each of these sites
 - Disabled all of my extensions and restarted FF
 - Started FF in Safe Mode
But none of these fixed the issue. The only thing that works so far is to use a brand new FF profile, and then the embedded maps will load on these sites.
So, why doesn't Safe Mode work? What is it about my main profile that is causing the maps not to load?
Btw, I'd prefer not to rebuild my profile from scratch, as it would take lots and lots of time to get everything set back up again in the new profile.
Thanks, Darren

Out of the blue I received a message stating I was being attacked on my Mac by software that maybe Ransomware. I was asked to close and delete the files.

I run Mac Os 10.14.6 and have never had any previous problems. After quarantining these files I quit Firefox and then could not open it. I therefore deleted the .app and reinstalled Firefox 75. I can only start up Firefox by using the Terminal Command window using the Profile manager. I created a new profile but cannot see my old profile within the Profile Manager. I can find the old profile under Profile's in Application Support/Users. So despite having a new default set created, I still cannot get the Firefox.app to open by clicking on it. I have now deleted the old profile and still cannot open the Firefox app from the dock or applications folder.

help please!

I could never find out why I got the message "Ransomware may be trying to access my computer", except two files have appeared in my bin; Edgar Poe Murder and Righteous Games.

Any help appreciated.

I cannot export or backup bookmarks. When I try to, no file is created. I have refreshed Firefox, created a new profile and copied the sqlite file, and uninstalled/reinstalled. None of these actions solved the issue. Could there be a corrupt bookmark that is preventing these functions? Is there another way to export/backup?
