I've changed the settings found in this thread to remove the suggestions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283813

I also want to revert the stupid focus effect on the search bar. This is a classic case of "don't fix what isn't broken". I'd love to know if the people making these decisions at Mozilla actually use their product. From my experience in large orgs with product owners, I'd bet my entire paycheck that they don't.

I have been searching since the start of quantum for solution to two problems. 1, i don't like tabs. There is a damned function for this built into my OS. Thanks but i'll pass. 2, My machine, I choose when I update stuff, NOT you. Can't disable updates, can't get around the nagging door hanger. Firefox is just not fun or easy anymore. You've clearly decided that we don't deserve choice, and choice is LITERALLY the only reason anyone would go to a browser than can barely stay in the top 3. Why is it so important to mozilla for these things to persist?

OK - "be nice". This is directed to Firefox as an organization. I DEPEND on Firefox. I have 90 - 100 tabs open in multiple accounts, I bought into "if it doesn't run in the browser" - I don't want it. Last week, Firefox stopped loading Gmail. Not Gmail Contacts or Calendar - just Gmail. But Gmail worked in if opened in a private window, After much anguish for days, I learned that Right Clicking on a working web page (in the Private Window) allowed me to delete Cache and Cookies FOR JUST GOOGLE. I did it and signed in and whuddaya know, Gmail works again. OK - a blip in the force. Now Slack doesn't work. Exact same symptoms - just non responsive to slack.com. Ah Ha I said. Firefox 74 is NFG. Let's just reinstall 73. Ooooh - the miracle minds at Firefox NO LONGER ALLOW DOWNGRADING - BECAUSE (wait for it) - "most of these problems are not due to an upgrade". Really? Most? This is not about being polite. This is about allowing a user to revert to a working version when a problem hits. Firefox is losing market share and if you want to know why. Well - here it is. It's unreliable. BTW: I was able to revert Gmail because I had other tabs signed in. I only have 1 Slack tab. I tried using the Private Window tab - nope. I USE Firefox to (1) make my life easier and (2) be more productive than my cohorts. Fail on 1 of those: not good. Fail on both: hello Chrome or any other browser that just works. P.S. I've been using Firefox for...hmmm I'm 70 and its unlikely there was a whole decimal digit in front of my starting version. C'mon guys.

Once again, we have a new release (74.0). Once again, the developers who believe themselves to be gods do not think users should be allowed to set Firefox to allow Flash on specific sites without asking EVERY SESSION, somehow believing that inconveniencing the users is somehow going to force website admins to move away from Flash before the announced deprecation at the END of the year.

Now one of my daily-visited sites (the one for Daily Jumble) will not wait for me to enable Flash, and when I do enable it I then have to refresh the page to make it work. It is obvious that if what I have been asking for all along -- being able to tell Firefox to enable Flash always FOR THIS SITE ONLY -- would alleviate the problem, but since the gods cannot see through the eyes of the users, I am now further inconvenienced by their decision.

I maintain that they moved too quickly and too drastically to implement this change, and I have no reason to believe posting this will make any difference, but I again want them to know that instead of Firefox being the most user-friendly browser in the world (as it USED to be) it now has enough user-UNfriendliness to be as despised as Internet Explorer was.

I do not believe it to be an unreasonable request to allow this, because they could simply put that functionality in, then take it out along with all Flash support in the first release of 2021. But they think they know better. Sorry, guys, but you DO NOT.

This is a reoccurring theme.

Webmasters making false assumption the end user can read webmaster’s minds.

This link states to download “Container” with a vague description. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/74.0/whatsnew/all/?oldversion=73.0.1

vague descriptions is what selfish jerks do.

I need the Webmasters to provide the useful information before I and many others will download. How does this file work? What exactly does the file do? Provide screenshots of the interface? File size?

Why do Webmasters in general from all websites think the consumer should trust them and download software without providing detailed information what the software actually does?

Starting about 02/11/2020, links in emails take me to a blank page and FireFox stops working. Must close FireFox.

I have neither added nor updated any add-ons.

I disabled all add-ons with no change.

Under Performance, I unchecked " Use recommended performance settings" and 'Use hardware acceleration when available". No change.

The only way a link works is if I have (basic) FireFox already running.

I have reversed the above changes and await HELP.

WTF. I'm having an issue with your software and trying to get to your support bulletin board and all it does is take me round and round through the same set of menus giving me a bunch of pre-written articles. Stop with this shit. I want to ask a question, not read your stupid articles that don't apply. This is your lazy attempt to avoid having to answer people. You mask it under the idea that these "articles" will discuss common issue and how to fix them, but all it really does is distract people to the point that they give up.


I am having a problem with my bookmarks. I am using Firefox 74. If I bookmark a page it used to add it to my Bookmarks drop down. Sometime ago it stopped working. Now it only shows Bookmarks under "Recent Bookmarks" and they drop off the menu after I think 10 bookmarks.

I can still find them when I show "all bookmarks" under the "show all bookmarks" option in the Bookmark drop down menu, but otherwise if I don't immediately drag them from "Recent bookmarks" to an existing Bookmark folder, then they drop off the menu entirely and can only be found when showing all bookmarks.

Is this a holdover from when you guys eliminated showing the file drop down menus by default?

Why isn't this working properly. When I bookmark a page it used to bring up a dialogue box asking me where I'd like to bookmark it. Bring this back.

Okay, first off, I'm infuriated. I'm infuriated with the stupid obstacle course it took me to even GET here! From the chain of suggestive meaningless support threads to the baffling loading of Thunderbird to even get me a password reset because I forgot the password to yet the millionth damn account I had to make to do one simple thing! Thanks, Firefox, you're making me regret even bothering with you and I've been with you since Day 1! I've had problems with you about the performance of the browser, to now just clogging the internet with garbage like making accounts just to get support!

The main point that started my stress with Firefox, is how I couldn't clear Autofill. I don't want a laundry list of names that are outdated and not in use. I've done everything I thought of, like going to Privacy and Security settings and clearing out the data. I've had CCleaner, clean out the data thoroughly. I've rebooted Firefox a few times and the names are still there! I don't WANT them there!

What have you done?! Why do you feel the need to enforce an arbitrary necessity onto those who prefer to have the options available to them on whether or not to clear such data? Why do you feel the need to make this so trivial? Am I stuck with an autofill form that I can't clear?! Forcing me to have to see a long ass list of things that are outdated/not in use?

This is your idea of IMPROVEMENT? You've lost your touch, Mozilla!!

This version is just junk!!!!! Just set the preferences and sign in Firefox and all other accounts like Gmail etc. Trying to save the history and all the passwords and everything you got. That's all gone when you shut Firefox down. When you reopen none of your history or passwords are there or you start from scratch. This is absolutely ridiculous. This version should never been released absolute disgrace. It doesn't deserve to be called a browser. I'm so disgusted and angry I can't put it in words.

Fix the damn thing!!!!

It is so bad when I try to get into accounts like Gmail it sees a different computer every time I log in. For security they have to phone me every time I reopen Firefox to to get into my account. I have to verify who I am!!!! Every single time that includes my banking online!!!!!

The latest update of Firefox, Ver. 71.0 is PITIFUL AND A POS! Firefox forced an update even though I have had it set to allow ME to decide when to update for years. Then when it updated it became V E R Y S L O W! And my PureVPN extension no longer works, even when I had to log in again manually. Firefox will no longer be my default browser until you fix ALL these problems: 1. Forced updates 2. Slowness 3. PureVPN MUST work!
