Hallo, kann mir jemand helfen und eine Tip geben wie ich diese illegalen unerwünschten Firefox Updates stoppen und diesem Wartungsdienst die Rechte zur Installation von Updates entziehen kann. Dies nötigenden Zwangsupdates und unberechtigten Eingriffe in mein System finde ich ganz schlimm. Ich hatte mich mal für Firefox entschieden, weil ich hoffte die machen gerade sowas nicht. Allein schon das sie wissen, dass ich ein Update brauche bedeutet, dass sie den Datenschutz verletzen und das auf meinem PC erschnüffeln. Wären sie ehrlich dürften sie das gar nicht wissen, ohne mich zu fragen. Kann mir jemand sagen wie ich das verhindern kann, Ich habe gerade gar keine Zeit alles auf Opera oder Microsoft umzustellen. Selbst Microsoft fragt bevor es sowas macht.

Hello, can anyone help me and give a tip how I can stop these illegal unwanted Firefox updates and revoke this maintenance service the rights to install updates. I find this necessary forced updates and unauthorized interference in my system quite bad. I once chose Firefox because I hoped they wouldn't do something like this. Just the fact that they know that I need an update means that they violate the privacy and sniff that on my PC. If they were honest, they wouldn't know that without asking me. Can anyone tell me how to prevent this, I don't have time to switch everything to Opera or Microsoft right now. Even Microsoft asks before it does something like this.

Good morning,

We have a problem on several machines with Firefox and RAM consumption. We use Outlook WebApp and when we open some mail in a new window with attachment, the memory consumption starts to be very high consuming space on the hard disk and leaving it empty. We do not know why or what is the process that causes this situation. It only happens with outllok webApp. (OWA) It doesn't happen all the time, it's a random problem. I hope someone can help me.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi there, When accessing history for today, selecting everything with CTRL+A then copying the selection with CTRL+C the only data copied to the clipboard is the URL [Location]. I have Name, Location & Most Recent Visit selected on the header ribbon. I am not using any clipboard utilities so I imagine it's pure Firefox inspiration. Is there a special trick for making Firefox recognise the PC standard CTRL+A and/or CTRL+C? Thanks

I use Firefox on iOS and I have correctly set it as my default browser. What is annoying, however, is the fact that when I select a text and I click on "Search on the web", iOS opens Safari and not Firefox. Why does this happen? I want to open Firefox when I click on that button.

Dear Firefox support.

Hi, I'd like to change a default shortcut. I'd like to use Ctrl + Shift + N to open a private browser window. The default shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + P, but in every other browser it is Ctrl + Shift + N, so I'd like that also in Firefox that shortcut would be Ctrl + Shift + N. Is there a way to change it?

Thanks for the support.

I cannot access my Mewe page. First I lost the ability to post emojis and my profile picture was obscured/blurred. I tried refreshing the page, logging out then logging in again but to no avail. Next I tried deleting the cookies and cache and restarting my PC still did not work. Then for the last 4 days I cant even access the sight. I hit my bookmarks/favorites icon and it just blinks so I Google the MeWe login page and try direct access, it just blinks. Very frustrating !!!. I switch my browser from Firefox to Google Chrome and I get access to the sight. The problem is obviously with Firefox as ALL these problems began AFTER the last Firefox update. Note: My computer outside of my MeWe access is working flawlessly and fast. I did a complex virus scan with my AVAST antivirus system it revealed NO viruses, NO malware, NO Trojan Horses and a clean PC. I've spoken to friends with Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge as well as smart phones and they ALL have access to their MeWe accounts. HELP !!! I don't want to switch my browser from Firefox because it screws up all my logins, bookmarks etc. but I want access to my MeWe account. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been with Firefox since my first PC 15 years ago and I don't want to switch .... Thanks in advance for your help.

In any modern browser, if you go to https://donotcall.gov and file a complaint about a harassing robocall, if the browser's "form auto-fill" function is enabled it will automatically "remember" the phone number about which you filed the complaint and save the robo-caller's number for the next time you use a Web form that prompts for a phone number.

My suggestion is that Firefox should not do this.

You might argue that I should address my complaint to the website's owner, but you all know it's the government and I figured that the Firefox developer community might be able to come up with a solution. Think of it as an improvement by which Firefox can be made "better" than other browsers.

I recently downloaded Firefox in order to try to install it on a Windows VM. When I download the regular (online) installer and checked it with VirusTotal, one of the VirusTotal "engines" detected it as malicious. Therefore, I located the "offline" installer file on your website and ran it inside the VM.

A few minutes after I performed the installation, I got a "setup.exe" alert box saying "The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this application."

Note: I cannot be sure this error actually pertains to Firefox (as it's a remote desktop connection to a shared VM so maybe somebody else was trying to install something). But the error did pop up shortly after I ran the Firefox installer. Also, this only happened once.

VM information: 4 CPUs; 16GB memory (1.28 GB active); hard disk 150 GB. Compatibility: ESXi 6.5 an later (VM version 13)

OS information: Windows 2019 Datacenter; Processor: Intel Xeon CPU ES-2697 v3 @ 2.60GHz 2.59GHz (4 processors) Installed RAM: 16.0 GB; 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

I have Firefox installed on an XUbuntu 20.04.2 LTS machine. preferences to "restore previous session" on startup. Intermittently, when I launch the browser, one of my windows has a very strange appearance (please note the general look of the window in the attached screenshot and ignore the "page cannot be displayed" message, as the screenshot was taken when I was not connected to the Internet.)

I have already tried reseting Firefox and that does not make the problem go away permanently; it always comes back eventually. (Note: I cleared cache before, and cookies after, taking the screenshot but before opening this support request. So the "troubleshooting information" attached reflects how it is after cookies are cleared.)

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505
