First, I have nothing against Firefox, its a great web browser, but there are two issues with Firefox which I cannot resolve, these two issues have caused me to switch to Google Chrome. That stated here are my two problem(s).

In Google Chrome as in Firefox you have the *Settings* or *Options* aspect to the particular web browser. In Chrome there is an *Advanced Setting* part where the user, me, can click two setting that make the web experience not just faster, but lets the web browser become less bogged down when loading web pages. In Chrome one can select - *Do not show any images* and *Do not allow any site to run JavaScript*. These two setting provide a smoother transition in web browsing. Chrome also permits the used to *grant permission* on these two setting per every web site he/she visits. I gives the user, me, greater control on what I *want to see* and be bothered with when visiting a web site.

I have looked everywhere on Firefox for these two setting as I can't stand being forced to view pictures which I may not want to see. I don't have any children under 18 in my house hold so pictures NSFW is not a problem, its a PERSONAL choice. These choices also are less junk in the browser cache. Certain web sites, such as financial institutions MUST have both setting set to *yes* and for me I do that per individual web site. But generally speaking I NEVER want images or JavaScript running unless I desire it. Once I am finished, I got into Chrome *Advanced Setting* and again restrict the web site I just visited, then clean the cache and browser history.

My question: Does Firefox have that ability, to restrict both images and JavaScript on their browser?

Thank you for your time, Jose H Naber

Hello, When I try to get a message called "Spam Control" for my email (zoho.com) which I open up using Firefox, I get the following directions:

1. Click Settings. 2. Go To Mail Settings » Anti Spam

Problem is that Nothing on the menu nor the website show an "Anti-Spam" folder/button/info on this. So I am stuck practically before I begin. Maybe they only offer anti-spam to commercial clients. I can't find it. A spammer got my email address and sends me 50 spam messages a day. His email address is fake (get message undeliverable) and "unsubscribe doesn't work either. I do NOT buy anything from him, but I did open up some email for the sole purpose of Unsubscribing. None of my Security Software seems to help (Malwarebites, ESET).

What can I do?

Firefox will not save user id or password. eg, going into an account that has both account number and password. also with banking, firefox will not save security code. on other computers, once the computer is listed as trusted by the bank, it does not ask for further verification. on my computer, i've had to provide it three times today, despite stating that my computer is a trusted device. this is an on going problem. i have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox to no effect. the version on my computer behaves differently than on other computers especially in 'remembering' usernames or log-in names regards, ron van Setten

Paranoid assholes!!! Cancer patient with broken mouse simply trying to get an older mouse working. A LOGITECH mouse and program. Logitech Flow Scroll 4.00.33 is the name of the program. Tomorrow I am supposed to refill my medications; without them I will die! Because of you it is likely that others have ALREADY DIED! I am one of the first to use your browser, and have been loyal until today. As soon as I have copied my important bookmarks to IE, you are going bye-bye. You have become lazy, PARANOID, a-holes, and I will do my best to tell others what you have become. Eat shit. -Mistralok-

every time I open firefox on my wife's account in win7 there are two sites that have been added to the allowed sites to download add-ons to firefox. This does not happen on my account in firefox. We are running version 54.0.1 32 bit. These two sites are mozilla sites but I don't want them to automatically allow the download of add-ons.

My wife keeps getting this firefox-patch.js scam page and I can't figure out to stop it. I never get it on my win7 account. This is probably not the same prob;em.
