WDO10 update crashed Firefox & I lost 5 months work. I.m thinking of paying the $$$ penalty & moving to Apple or Linux. I'm 74 & sorry miss Netscape Navigator where I could turn off bloated picture loading & javascript! Why do I download 1 meg of data & use 100 meg of memory? Is this fabulous Micrit*rd programming?

I used my 1st PC in the fall of 1985....

I accidentally deleted a single bookmark in a folder in my Toolbar.

So I created a restore point just in case, and then used the restore feature.

So when I restored my bookmarks, it froze firefox.

So I restarted and it restore everything except the toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is there, it's just empty, and all my extremely important bookmarks in the toolbar just don't exist. I even confirmed that they're gone by adding new things to the Bookmarks Toolbar, every bookmark in it is gone, with all the folders.

I am a designer and these were super important to me, please help, all my internet searches are extremely unhelpful, since they just say to restore, or check if the toolbar is being displayed(it is), the specific bookmarks in the toolbar are gone...

Starting two days ago screenshots just stopped working. Now whenever I try a page with a sad bear opens and closes within a second and a message in the corner says "Out of Order. Sorry! We couldn't save your shot. Please try again later." I didn't touch any options and it was working fine before that. I don't know if this is a problem others are having or just me.

I have done clean install of Firefox 70.x after following *all* the help articles I can find here in these forums relating to low laggy Firefox. This is with no add-ons, etc. Basic Clean install of 70.x The issue remains. I still use Flash on a couple of sites so I have it installed after troubleshooting. I did have the install for 68?? and it has the issue too, after clean install. Not sure of the exact number but closer to the newer 70.x

Loading all sites is just slow! Tried from 3 different ISPs. Usually it shows the TSL Handshake lag but not always. Disabling the antivirus fixes the issue BUT I have tried Avast, AVG and E-Set. All have the same allergic reaction with Firefox while Google Chrome remains fast to load no matter how "heavy" of an Internet Security I use.

I am at a loss and hate have to go back to 61.x to fix this issue. It is fast and smooth with any Internet Security available. 62.x just loads like NOW. No delay... :( Hours of uninstalling and reinstalling different software to prove to myself that the newer FireFox is very slow if you use any Internet Security.

When we spell a word incorrectly it gets underlined in red, when I right click on it I get the suggested list of word but when I click on the correct on it's not replacing it, so no change in Microsoft dynamics CRM. We are using Mozilla Firefox 61. We are also facing slowness issue in CRM also.

I cleared out my History, Form, cookies, and cache a week ago and ever since I have one webpage, and ONLY one, that simply keeps giving me this error:

The connection has timed out

The server at www.consumercellular.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Now, the site simply can't be temporarily unavailable for over a week, especially since I have no trouble opening and logging into it using the Chrome browser on my tablet. However, even IE on my desktop gets this same message. As mentioned earlier in this message this is the only webpage that does this. All of my other ones work just fine and dandy. And I know it's not my firewall, since even with it turned off I get the same thing. Now, I really need to be able to access that website so if anyone can help me get this cleared up I would appreciate it. Just know that I'm not the most computer literate person around so any explanations need to be easy to follow!

Installing firefox version 68 with msi package doesn't ask me for install folder and insist on installing into C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox I removed permission to that folder and installer silently closed without installing anything except littering my taskbar with a useless icon "which I always removed it immediately"

How to tell Firefox that I want to install in a different folder?

Once again Mozilla has chosen to block an extension - and I am using a version that should NOT be interfered with

This is the second time in this week that my browser has been Hijaaked by Mozilla. I am running a pre v57 (v51.0.1) version of Mozilla DELIBERATELY so you guys will keep your hands OFF my browser- Yet here we are again with your fingers in my configuration. I am using 51.0.1. I have disabled upgrades. I have disabled xpi checks. I have set my whitelist to ALL. I have changed the reported version in use to keep you from forcing an upgrade ... WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY CONFIGS!

I will decide whether an extension i have used for YEARS is a problem! I not you. Please give me a config property for v51.0.1 that will prevent you from doing ANYTHING without my active agreement and participation. I depend on the add-ons I have installed. I use them and they work. This is twice you guys have screwed me in one week. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY CONFIGS! I know I can set all Mozilla files to read-only but that requires me to cycle on and off to perform some tasks and I can just see those greedy fingers looking for a hole to meddle into

I repeat from my last complaint: A feature without an OFF switch is a defect.

Please tell me how to fix this DEFECT and keep your fingers OFF of my desktop

This morning a significant number of my installed addons failed their signature test. Among these addons were uBlock Origin, Honey, Tampermonkey and Reddit Enhancement Suite. All of these addons are well known, so why have their signature tests failed? Furthermore, I seem completely unable to reinstall these extensions, despite them being available on the addon store.

The real problem is this: Why was this failure instant? This is unacceptable behaviour, a cooldown period needs to be available to allow someone to prepare a solution. I.E - a warning that "x addon does not meet standards and will be disabled in x days". Simply halting those addons and telling the end user after the fact is poor, poor behaviour - and was why I moved from Chrome to Firefox in the first place.

Furthermore, why is no workaround available on the stable channel? I'm astounded that a UX design this poor is a product of Mozilla.

There have been several updates since 61.0.2, but every time i attempt an update, i am unable to open Firefox, and i have to revert to the older version. I have Task Manager running, when attempting to open the updated version, and it briefly appears in the TM list, then disappears again. I am also unable to open in Safe Mode. Driving me nuts! Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Why native API? Because when there's a new web push notification and user misses it, there's no way to find out what it was. Using OS's native API will allow the notification to be kept in Notification Panel unit users sees it and dismiss it.

I believe Linux too have some sort of native notification APIs too.

It'd be really awesome to have native notifications support on operating systems which now have pretty good notifications APIs.

There is a problem with Faerfoksom critical, processor I3-7100. When you run Firefox the computer translates all the program and game tasks into 2 CPU threads and starts to slow down. If you click anywhere on the desktop or activate any task immediately load is all 4 threads, but if the cursor again activate on the Firefox load back from all running programs goes to 2 CPU flow, and 2 others start Rest and everything again slows down. There is no such thing with other browsers
