The pictures I could click on were NOT websites I had been to before but these articles were updated daily and followed my scientific interest. I finally gave up on Mozilla giving me any support as basically they don't have any which really sucks and instead found on Google Chrome a very similar plugin that works very nicely which means Mozilla has gained another very disgruntled and discouraged client - but I doubt if they really give a damn.

I would like to have a conversation with the developer who had the brilliant idea of applying LZ4 to the formerly plain text session backup files that were used since the beginning and worked perfectly fine.

What is the name of the person whose idea it was to add a “feature” to Firefox that made recovering lost sessions so much easier and saving 3 MB of my disk space for wasting over 100 minutes of my time figuring out how to handle LZ4 works and how to get the plain text that would normally be written directly to the disk after Firefox failed to recover the session after a crash and after file system readability problems?

And did the community explicitly ask for LZ4? Were there users of Mozilla Firefox that recommended LZ4? Who exactly had the idea of implementing LZ4?

Will places.sqlitelz4 (or “places.sqlite.lz4”) become the next victim of lz4?

Thanks in advance.

This is for the mozilla firefox developers: I wonder why firefox is getting less and less customizable by default as it was in earlier days. Now with Firefox 65 again you repeadedly change a lot so we have to look around for new tuning tips again, that is no fun!

Please, implement a customize option to get the Tabs bar on Bottom (under the bookmarks toolbar) without having to tune the chrome.css, also tab height and width should be customizable for everyone. For all users. Also the functions how tabs and links open is too less so we always have to install addons or tune about:config if possible. Like: - New tabs from all entries url bar, searchbar, bookmarks - open tab (also new ones) next to current

Firefox should be different from chrome and other browsers and should give the user more options to customize. Thanks Claudy


Thanks

I have been a huge fan of Firefox for many years. I donate money to the company because I believe in the product. The development team has done a very good job growing the products.

I am slowly seeing little annoyances pop in the browser product that is reminding me more of IE. I am loosing my control over the product. I realize the annoyances I am seeing are to protect me but as a seasoned technical person I know where to go on the internet and what links not to click on. After Firefox update 62 you can no longer disable update notifications. I totally get there are more less technical users of Firefox out there then there are IT experts. You are trying to protect the less techy folks for the greater good.

I ask the dev team to please remember us Tech Savvy individuals and if you hide settings in the preferences container to please please leave them in the other container.

Thanks, your biggest fan!

I got here via https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/feedback/ so the following should be treated as “product feedback” rather than a "question".

Let me first say that I’m quite happy with FF overall but the way it supports "Bookmarks" really frustrates me... First, I've not been convinced to check how "Pocket List" differs from "Bookmarks" and the mere presence of its icon in the URL bar next to the “Star icon” irritates me since each time I want to click "bookmark" I always experience this fraction of delay figuring out which button to press.. at the very least I would like to have the option to move the “Star icon” to the other end of the bar. Second, upon times I think to access a previously saved bookmark I instantly get this “ooof” like feeling, suggesting this to be tedious … I suspect this because: 1) The “tilted books” icon is quite "distant" from the “Star icon” by different measures, it's not within the same control group, and it is set apart by a substantial length compared to the distance between icons in a group, so effectively, the “Bookmark concept" is in two places and since I save more than I review I tend to first look at the "star icon" regardless of what I actually want to do with "Bookmarks". I think a more intuitive design for me would have the "star" and "books" icons be adjacent visually somehow... perhaps combining the two into a "dropdown button". 2) Once I do locate and click the "books icon" I'm somewhat overwhelmed by seeing many options which all deal with "past pages" and it takes me another click to open the "sub-menu" to show the "Bookmark list", which itself is not really consistent with sub-menus as a UI navigation pattern. 3) ..at which point I’m presented with a relatively narrow list of descriptions having the majority of them being cut-off. This makes the whole list appear very cryptic. I would really appreciate having a one-button click experience in order to reveal my bookmarks. As a quick remedy, I would love to have the option to change the semantics of the URL bar pull down pane (e.g drop-down arrow) to show my bookmarks instead of the recently visited URL's (I never ever used this list to navigate back to a site).

Hope this is considered...

It's a great idea, but a really stupid name. We've all been conditioned to think 'refresh' online just means, reload. I thought it would just recheck my firefox to ensure it was the latest version, and probably just reinstall itself.

Yes, I know I should have read more into it before, but it really shouldn't be so vague to begin with. Just a personal gripe, cause I lost all my bookmarks and my last backup was like a year ago... sigh...

This is a notification for developers, not looking for answers. I can totally tell there is something wrong with the new version. Win 7 both PC's.

Latest version 60.0.1 loaded on two separate PC's. I'm at work using PC #1 and the web mail for work. Things are acting weird. If I reply to an email, the "forwarded" part is MIA. If I in turn leave this pop out applet I get an "Leave this page / stay on this page" type applet. Use IE. Works as expected.

Now I'm at home. I am on a panel survey system called IPOS/ISAY. Things just aren't working right, I can tell, I just can't tell you HOW I know, but it is time to use IE...guess which browser works better?

I'm in FF right now. I just spelled a word wrong (survey as servey). Items for the wrong word don't come close to the desired right spelling.

I'm still at a loss to where the "speed" of Quantum is. I can click on something 3 times before I get reaction for something. I SWEAR it is SLOWER than the old FF series. I believe the real problem is the lack of reaction. Prior versions posted clockwise and counter clockwise spinner. The crappy left right blob thingy...pft! she ain't workin' right.

Hi , There are 3 negative things in Mozilla Firefox browser:-

1-FireFox is full of ads and Firefox ad blocker is weak it doesn't even block most ads! when I click on something a new tap get opened and I find a page or a website or something I have no relation with it! For example I am in a modding website and I click on search button then a new tap comes and I find another website or page about how to be rich and that is not what I want!. By the way a lot of people prefer Google Chrome browser because it has no ads however I prefer Firefox browser please remove the ads from firefox, Make firefox browser clean of ads.

2-Where is the register button?! I took maybe 15 minutes to find a solution to register in this website then I knew that the only way to register is by volunteering but I don't want to volunteer I just want to register to ask a question! I am sure that I am not the only one who is talking about that there is no register button, Please put a register button so people can register quickly.

3-I have an old account and I forgot its password so I wrote my email to receive a password reset link and I waited maybe 2 minutes or 1 minute and I didn't receive the link so I tried again by writing my email and again I didn't receive the link!

Suggestions:-

1-Please put a "|([fast])|" VPN for Firefox browser because some websites are blocked in other countries. 2-I know that you have many products like firefox focus so can you make a VPN can content a lot of countries please?


Thank you.

If I use autofill, I have no problem (I double click in a field and get the 2 profile choices I have set up, click on one and then the form fills). But if I have to manually type into a profile field on any site Firefox creates a new autofill profile. I have to go into settings to delete the extras. There should be an option for "create new profiles automatically" that I can turn on or off.

This site: https://www.lawanswers.com.au/threads/ebay-and-paypal-australian-consumer-law-on-withholding-payments.6537/

Popped out a new window in the background when I highlighted some text.

1. Every time JavaScript is used to pop-up a new tab or window, an icon should be made available to report the site for unwanted pop-ups. The site could be added to a blacklist. The blacklist should be downloaded in whole rather than queried on Firefox servers for privacy (Mozilla does care about privacy doesn't it?).

2. If a site is on the blacklist and it tries to pop-up a tab/window then the popup could be blocked and same icon could highlight for say 10 seconds. Clicking the icon in this case would give the options to open the popup, white-list the page for the user, vote against the blacklist. Something like:

[ ] Show the blocked page. [ ] White-list this site for me. [ ] I don't think this site should be blacklisted

[ OK ] [Cancel]

Some fuzzy logic could perhaps be used to determine whether or not to keep sites on the blacklist. Sites with very large amounts of blacklisting+white-listing could be manually looked at.

Also: I don't ever want anything happening when I highlight text other than the text being high-lighted, it's not necessary and it completely ruins the browsing experience. No excuses, it's bad. Add a white-list if necessary for the 0.01% edge cases where this might be useful.

I love Firefox, however it's missing a feature that would help me a lot.

I'm a developer and I switch between the Development and Production web site a lot.

I'm worried I do some action in Production thinking I'm in the Develop one. To minimize the risk there are some measures I take. 1- I use a different user in the Development version 2- The Development version as a different color 3- I use a different browser for Production (Chromium)

I would like to start using Firefox in Production too, but in order to make it safe I need to be able to change the Firefox icon in the Operating system status bar. This way I always see with icon in the Operation System status bar I should click to go to the Production Browser. If for security reasons the Firefox icon can not be changed for each profile, then if you add a "save to desktop" chrome like feature it should do the trick. In my particular use case, since the Development version does not have the favicon, It would be enough to Firefox display the favicon of the current selected tab instead of the Firefox icon.

Thanks

Even after years of instability and slowness, I stuck with it. Then, finally, they did a major upgrade that seemed to fix the problems. Of course the one extension - Session Manager - that was the main reason I used Firefox, no longer worked. Yet still I stayed, and every time it said to update, I did. Now it's worse than it ever was. It is excruciatingly slow, and completely unstable, and I have had it. I hate Chrome, but it works, and, if I have to use some second-rate session manager, it may as well be under Chrome.

Just ... fed ... up!

You seem to arbitrarily decide to eliminate numerous add-ons. For years I have been using and working with Scrapbook. By upgrading to Firefox Quantum, all of a sudden somebody decided to call this program 'legacy software' (whatever that is!) and pretty much eliminate it. I had many files on scrapbook which now I cannot access and seem to have just vaporized. This is not a professional way of running and managing a web browser used by millions. Who makes these decisions and based on what criteria you decide to eliminate add-ons without notification. Once an add-on is listed on your site, then one assumes that it could be used and will be there for the foreseeable future. If you want to eliminate whole bunch of add-ons then you need to have a much much stricter criteria for putting them in your list in the first place.

This is very disappointing

I know, this question is around for 15 years. Reason I created this account is just to support other people not heard. Fact is: Alice's wonderful add-on 'Show Parent Folders' is no longer available, Firefox lost one of the MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES ever. There are two reasons, I never stopped using Firefox: I like the spirit behind (including the fact, I don't like Explorer, Chrome, Safari etc for many different reasons) and I had 'Show Parent Folders'. I'm not a developer, I can't program it myself. But I made hundreds of people happy when showing the 'Show Parent Folders'. If all the people using 'Show Parent Folders' would take time to comment here, you would understand, why this is important. So please reevaluate this feature quickly!

I don't have a week to devote to learning all about something new. Firefox has always been crazy with updates every three hours that change all your settings so you have to re-do them. Now I can't find how to add something to favorites. I am sorry, I am busy and do not have time to read a book about your browser just to "learn how" to do things on it. Yoo hoo--- people in business DO NOT USE THEIR PHONES FOR EVERYTHING. So if this is primarily a phone or tablet browser, just say so and I will just uninstall it and quit being frustrated. Why have you kept changing and changing it until it is unusable? This is why people don't like it any more--- not because it isn't "phone friendly'! Get a clue! Hire someone over 13 who has actually some experience running a business to see what business people want in a browser and fix it!
