Hi. Since FF v103 it seems, when working with a VPN, and then trying to use also a browser extension VPN, it either does not or does not connect until after 45s. Before it was immediate. It works in all other browsers (incl FF before v103). So this is a recent change in FF that harms normal VPN connections. I found out by trial and error, that changing the port of the VPN extension to 443 and disabling and enabling the extension and going back to v103 from v103.0.1 helped, but that should not be like that. So something has been broken in the latest v103.0.1 - please kindly look into it. Thank you!

I got an email awhile back stating Firefox was going to offer a VPN service, with a 30 free trial offer. MY question is does the Firefox VPN offer a split tunneling option like other VPN services offer? From what I understand, split tunneling is a feature where the VPN service will be active, or connected in one browser but then it would be disabled or disconnected in another browser. Can you please explain if I got that correct? Thank you.

Hello. All of a sudden i have been getting prompts just before completing gmail sign is asking if i want to switch to html or default.I chose default,tried to sign in again,and got this legacy version of gmail with messages being listed in html format which is brutal.What caused this ? how do i get it back to the way its always been? Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

I am using Widows7 Home Premium with Yahoo Mail and Firefox, a combination that's worked for years.

When starting an email and when you put the first letter in the 'To' line I used to get a box suggesting all the names in my contact list beginning with the same letter. With a simple click on the name you want, it appears on the 'To' line. This is not now happening and it's a pain having to dig out email addresses from elsewhere.

I have not made any alterations anywhere on the computer, it just disappeared one day.

How can I get this feature to reappear?

My homepage is Google. When i open it on my desktop (win7) the cursor is automatically in the search bar on that webpage. As i want it to be. My number one function when opening firefox is to search google so that is where i want to start. NOT in the address bar ever.

On my laptop (upgraded to win10) it is in the address bar.

I installed the exact same profile from my desktop to laptop.

I have run it in troubleshoot mode and the issue went away. So i disabled all addons and custom themes but issue still persisted.

I turned off hardware acceleration, no change.

What else could troubleshooting be turning off?

Why does the exact profile work on desktop but not laptop ?

Hi!

I have been using Firefox browser for so long I can't remember when I first started using it, so "June 2004" was an absolute guess to satisfy the too-inflexible parameters of the login process.

However, to the problem... Firefox has been my default browser for the past few centuries and is likely to remain so until the internet itself becomes obsolete. Recently I also installed Brave because I want to separate some of my internet activities from the rest. The Brave installation process apparently set Brave as my default browser without consulting me. So I went into my Firefox settings to return Firefox to "default" status. That was simple enough, but what I also noticed at the top of my Settings page is a message I've never seen before which reads, "Your browser is being managed by your organisation."

   err... WHAT ORGANISATION???  My computer is a stand-alone "home" computer which I own and manage, and is not networked to anything, not even a printer.  When I connect to the internet it is by password protected mobile hotspot through my phone, but I make this connection only when I need it and disconnect when it is not in use. 

So, this unexpected message alarms me. Have I been hacked and my browser been taken over by some unknown entity of whose existence I was unaware until I saw this message... or what?

How do I block whoever/whatever the "organisation" is and take back permanent, secure control of my browser? Anyone who can throw some light on this will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi!

I have some serious problems with my Firefox!

First it won't open in any page I want it to. A message appears "Oops! Your tab just ceashed" It wants me to click on the following link: "Restore this tab", but nothing happens when I do it! If I try to click in one of my shortcuts on the top of the page, nothing happens either!

Today I tried to uninstall it, and then go get the latest version, but it won't uninstall! I tried to uninstall it using the Windows (7 Professional) Control Panel, but nothing happens when I click on Unistall Mozilla Firefox!

What else can I do?

Thank you!
