A tab for the Etsy website automatically appears every time FF starts up. How to stop this?

Just began after using the site a couple of times, but I did not indicate or click a setting on the Etsy site to ask for this.

All solution suggestions seem to be for pop-up ads, and don't work to block a website. Is there a way to block this?

I moved to Firefox because I have autism and someone told me it would help block the popups and moving content that makes using the web exhausting and difficult. And it does!

The trouble is, it replaces them with something worse – a grey screen that rolls continuously from left to right. It's impossible to focus on text with such intrusive visual distraction, so I have to shut the page down. It seems to occur on so many websites that at the moment it's not worth trying to use the browser.

Half the problem is that I don't know the right term to describe it, which makes troubleshooting a bit complicated. Hopefully someone will recognise it from the description, though – if so, is there any way of stop it moving, please?

Thank you!

New computer (Windows 11) shows 'Old Firefox Data'. Opened hidden files. Using File Explorer found Profile Folder & renamed it 'old'. Copied and pasted 'Old Firefox Data' as new profile. Firefox would not open. Had to remove etc and Firefox worked again. Thought this maybe the easiest way to get my Bookmarks back.

PS Presume Profile Folder does not contain Thunderbird Addresses?

I have search separated from the url bar, and I have Firefox Suggest configured to only use history for tab completion. I've noticed a couple problems.

  • Search is being prioritized over options in my history. I have the separate search box, if I wanted to search I would use it. If I type a single character I want the most common result from my history to be the result of hitting tab.
  • I've noticed recently that I'm getting sponsored results even though I have them disabled. It's somewhat inconsistent, and I've only noticed it in one of my profiles. Specifically I am used to "w <tab>" taking me to weather.gov but I'm getting sponsored results for AccuWeather. I clicked the "feedback -> not interested" button but this is concerning that Firefox is ignoring preferences and there's a pattern of sending data to Google and AccuWeather despite me configuring the browser not to.

I am using Firefox version 119.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 22.04. Using this version of Firefox, as well as previous versions for the last few months, I am having a persistent error when using Google Advanced Search. I enter search criteria into the field “Find pages with … all these words” and successfully progress through a chain of web pages. Previously I was able to backtrack to the previously mentioned field and find my search criteria, then edit the text, and carry out a modified search. For many months this field has been blank when returning to it. So it is now necessary to re-enter all text for a new search. This is very frustrating. I have experienced this problem on the three computers that I regularly use.

I have found that when I use the Google Chrome browser the problem goes away and searches progress normally. I would much prefer to use Firefox as my browser as I find its bookmark system superior. The truth is that if this problem with Firefox can’t be fixed soon I will be forced to migrate to Chrome. Can you please help me resolve this Firefox problem?

I restarted my computer and when I booted Firefox up it looked completely different. I'm assuming they updated, but updates never impacted my settings before and in this case none of my sessions or history is left.

I logged in to my Mozilla account and that recovered my extensions, though not my toolbar settings.

The real issue is that all of my tabs and windows are gone. In History, "Recently closed windows" is greyed out and Recently closed tabs shows nothing but what's been opened since I restarted.

Is there any way to recover my history?

Edit:

Resolved: Somehow a blank profile had been set as the default.

All of a sudden the Firefox password I've been using for a long time stopped working. I went through the reset process, set a new password, and it still doesn't work! What I am doing wrong? Keeps asking me to re-enter the password, and when I do, it says it's not correct. Is this a widespread known issue?

I use a VPN connection to access my workplace. This means that all my DNS queries MUST go through the company's VPN tunnel.

Firefox is deliberately blocking my work. The DNS over HTTPS "feature" does not work over this VPN connection.

In Firefox, there was previously the following setting: Preferences > General > Network Settings > Enable DNS over HTTPS

I REALLY NEED to have this setting restored right now.

Hi, I want to delete my acccount entirely and start fresh, I login to the website just fine, but when going to the "Delete Account" button I keep getting an "Incorrect Password" pop-up.

I've changed the password twice now, logged in just FINE, yet keep getting told I'm using the incorrect password when trying to delete my account.

I've tried on multiple different browsers now to delete the account and it's just not working.

I really wanted to swap over to Firefox but everytime I try, I get some insanely stupid issue that never ends up being resolved, I've found another thread from 2021 about this and they stated it never got fixed and they had to make a whole new email just to use the service.

There are questions about organizing the process of overseeing extensions.

It’s very strange when you see the “Recommended” extension, and at the same time you continue to see negative reviews, fresh ones. But another thing is offensive: the review submission form does not have feedback. I would like to receive a more detailed answer and user recommendations.

Let’s say a user writes that the design of the extension is not intuitive, that he lost information because of this extension and wasted a lot of time. And this is not consistent with the "Recommended" criteria. Causes dissonance.

Maybe it’s worth expanding the possibility of interactive interaction with reviews, with clients among themselves. Maybe it’s worth expanding the support base for these extensions? Link the application version to reviews to avoid misunderstandings?
