Dear Forum,

I have not accessed my Devices since a few updates, I use to be able to rename devices, but in 99.01 I no longer see this as an option? I also have found that sometimes when I add a device is adds the Machine name which I prefer and today I logged out all of my devices and found that it added it and named it a generic name "Firefox 99, Windows 10" Which if grave concern as this could be Any Device. Can someone please let me know how this feature in version 99.01 is suppose to name computers and also can you still rename devices and if so how would you change the name, or if there is a link to documentation on this feature as it has changed. TIA for your help.

I have always counted on the Notifications in Messenger to tell me when someone: posts a reply to any of my posts, mention my name, tag me ETC.

I am not getting new Notifications in Messenger currently.

I KNOW there were replies to some of my own posts on my own facebook, but I have not received any Notifications in Messenger of these new posts.

I have searched and searched and keep getting help with things to do things that are NOT there, like a profile picture in the upper left...there IS no profile upper left!

This feature has seemly been fading as time goes on, used to get lots of Notifications in Messenger some time ago, and then it seems less and less.

I have received emails asking why I did no reply?

I would like to receive these Notifications in Messenger fully or at least have some control.

I am reading messenger on a disk top in Win 10 in Firefox 99.

Firefox is adding +1 before 7-digit phone numbers. There are two things wrong with this. The + sign is only appropriate for cell phones and some websites will not accept phone numbers with the prefix as valid. When will this be fixed?

I use Last Pass for passwords & it's worked in the past on Firefox. After updating Firefox, the Last Pass extension in by toolbar is black - in the past I would click that, open the Last Pass page to sign in, then the icon turns red and functions. Now when I click the icon a frozen page comes up that never loads. I can sign in to the Last Pass webpage, but that doesn't turn on the extension.

Any advice appreciated - thanks!

"delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" now gets checked against my will. i'm not checking it and have never had it set to do that. this is wasting tons of time for me, resetting my shortcuts and signing in to sites that are a pain in the ass to sign in to (specifically bandcamp). other settings get changed also, but not all of them, and my personal info remains. but a lot of time is also wasted correcting all the settings that have changed behind my back. this started happening within the past week. i've changed nothing.

it's not when i turn my computer off. i had to reset everything 2 days ago, but when i got home yesterday and turned my computer on it was working properly - settings intact. i used it for several hours, went to bed, turning the internet off, as i always do, and leaving pine player on. (it's not pine player causing the problem. i wasn't using it the other times) the computer never went into sleep mode, as per my settings... but after turning the internet back on this morning and opening firefox my settings are changed again.

any ideas? Thanks if you try to help

My Lenova Think Pad has Windows 7 Prof (configured as XP) on it, and Firefox and Thunderbird. I use it mostly for email, to play simple computer games, such as solitaire and word search, and now and then to look up an address or website. I do not know anymore about computers. Everytime I got an update, something would change and I would have to go and find someone, and PAY them to tell me what happened, and fix it, and put it back the way it was. For a very long time now I have not downloaded any updates, and just press the dismiss, or not now button.

Why do you need to change things the whole time, when it is all running fine. I am now too scared to download anything in case it alters something from the way I am used to. I do not use facebook or twitter or any of those things people are always talking about. I just use it for email, to keep in touch with others, since I cannot hear on a phone.

I am a technologically challenged octogenarian, who did not have a chance to finnish school in the 50's. Will I eventually not be able to use my computer? Or will you keep it running?

Recently upgraded to a new Macbook and added the latest version of Firefox. For some reason, I am unable to upload or attach files on any website. This includes things like adding attachments to Gmail messages, uploading photos to Facebook, or uploading media to my Wordpress site. There is no error message or pop-up box -- when I click "attach" or "upload" absolutely nothing happens.

The same files upload without issue via Safari or by using Firefox on my older Macbook, so it's not a file-specific or website-specific issue.

How can I correct this? I like using Firefox as my default browser, and it's annoying to have to switch over to Safari every time I want to upload a file. I've searched older posts here, but the suggested fixes (restarting your computer, making sure location services are enabled) do not do anything.

Good day! I trust you all are well. I am using a Kensington Expert Mouse (wired, K64325), and KensingtonWorks application for settings. Although I use the slowest scrolling speed, the scrolling is still very fast i.e. one click is a full screen. In other applications the settings are working well. How can I slow down the scrolling? Many thanks and regards, Konstantin

Under Privacy and Security I have Firefox set to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' with no exceptions listed.

When I close and reopen Firefox, the cookies are correctly deleted, but the cache is not. I have to manually go into this setting to delete them. This also happens if I go to the menu bar setting of 'history/clear recent history'.

I want to keep my history of where I've been, but clear clear cookies and the cache every time close.

This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request for a browser that bills itself as being privacy oriented, but I don't see how to do this. Doing banking, I have to manually go into Privacy each time to get this done to clear the site.

From looking at previous answers to this question it seems the current way Firefox is designed this is "not a bug, but a feature".

Using Firefox 99.0 on a 2017 Imac.

When I use Firefox on my Mac, no matter what I have tried it keeps defaulting to the dreaded Bing Search Engine. I understand it has to do with Microsoft, but I don't use any of their products because I don't like them. In settings/search I can restore the default search engines & delete Bing, but it always reverts back to insisting on using Bing again. I have followed several threads about this issue without permanent resolution. Help??
